The SIU try and locate an anti-government sniper, targeting local government businesses. Michelle gets in hot water when she shoots a suspect, who she believes has a gun on a roof, but there is no evidence of one.

    • QUOTES (17)

      • Harvey: You are a worthless, spineless-- You got a date with a dominatrix queen?
        Evan: Well, what can I say? She said that she loved a challenge.
        Harvey: Evan, you think she might have a friend for me?
        Evan: Sorry, Harv. I think all of her friends are tied up.

      • Nash: Hey, where's the cuddle bug?
        Joe: Oh, they didn't have one, man. They thought I said scuddle bug of the phone.
        Nash: What the hell's a scuddle bug?
        Joe: Some cheap knock off that looks like a cockroach. I'm dead. (Nash laughs)

      • Joe: Ah, damn. Mail order. I could've had mail order for the cuddle bug costume. I could've ordered it directly from the manufacturer in Taiwan and had it shipped international airfreight.
        Nash: Are we going to have to deal with this every Halloween?
        Joe: No, just until she reaches puberty.
        Nash: Oh, yeah, and then things get real easy.

      • Joe: So, what do you think?
        Nash: About what?
        Joe: About Michelle.
        Nash: Well, I think she's convinced that she saw a gun.
        Joe: Do you think there was a gun?
        Nash: I don't know. I trust her judgment but she could just made an honest mistake.
        Joe: It makes me think of all the times we went in there shooting first and asking questions later, man. It's scary.
        Joe: Well, we're going to get to the bottom of it one way or another.

      • Nash: Do I know what I just signed?
        Pepe: No.
        Nash: Do you?
        Pepe: Yes.
        Nash: Thank you.

      • Evan: How are we going to cover everyone of those roofs, Nash? It can't be done.
        Harvey: Not with the blue flu on.
        Michelle: Well, we don't have to be on every roof, we just have to be where we can see every roof, right?
        Nash: Head of the class.

      • Joe: Ah, listen, I can't. I'm talking to this guy who knows this other guy who owes a third guy a favor who lives next door to a guy who might have a cuddle bug. I, no please-- (mutters)
        Nash: Did anybody understand that?
        Harvey: Nah.
        Nash: Good, I thought it was me there for a minute.

      • Nash: Bubba, we've been partners for 20 years and for 20 years we've been having the same conversation.
        Joe: What are you talking about? I've never destroyed a Halloween costume before.
        Nash: It ain't about the Halloween costume. Just like last year it wasn't about you losing your wedding ring. Just like 15 years ago it wasn't about you investing in a beta-only video store.
        Joe: Hey, you have to admit that was superior technology. Okay, what's your point?
        Nash: My point is, you and Inger. I mean, you're like... Oh, never mind. It's none of my business.
        Joe: Oh, no, no. What? What?
        Nash: No, no, it's none of my business.
        Joe: Well, if it's none of your business, how come we've been having the same conversation for 20 years then?
        Nash: You tell me.
        Joe: What are you trying to tell me? That Inger has to be handled? That there's an art form to handling her? Show me one wife where that isn't true.
        Nash: Bubba, it's only become an art form because for some odd reason you've always been afraid to level with her.
        Joe: That is not true.
        Nash: Bubba.
        Joe: Look, I don't like to disappoint her, okay? What's wrong with that? I mean, makin' her happy makes me happy.
        Nash: Nothin'.
        Joe: Look, she doesn't have expensive tastes and little things make a huge difference to her, you know?
        Nash: Look, I believe 'ya. I mean, let's face it, you're more of an expert at marriage than I am. That's for damn sure.
        Joe: Look, I promised Inger that Lucia would have a cuddle bug costume for the tumble time Halloween parade. And I'm going to find her a cuddle bug costume by tomorrow night.
        Nash: You might.
        Joe: Even if I have to scour every isle of every costume shop in this time zone.
        Nash: It might.
        Joe: Even it if costs me big time.
        Nash: I'm sure it will.
        Joe: Shut up, will 'ya? (Nash laughs)

      • Nash: Our shooter's back for seconds.
        Joe: Should I call for back-up?
        Nash: We are back-up, bubba.

      • Nash: And don't spend too much time looking at the obvious, the best answers are usually in the last place that you look.
        Joe: Did you get that from a fortune cookie?
        Michelle: I got it.
        Nash: She got it.

      • Joe: Well, the cuddle bug is gone. Now how am I going to explain what happened to Inger?
        Nash: Try telling her the truth.
        Joe: What, that some drug addled tiger-man in a microbrewery by East Indians accidentally bumped into the stove and it burned up? Should I tell her that?
        Nash: Mmm, yeah, you're right. You're going to have to come up with something more believable.

      • Nash: Oh, good. So you got a guy on PCP locked in your kitchen, who thinks he's a tiger?
        Restaurant Manager: Yes.
        Joe: I hated this part of the job 20 years ago.
        Nash: I'm not liking it very much at present.

      • Harvey: Pain facilitators?
        Elvira: Yeah, I could tell you what they are, but it'd be a lot more fun to show you. (to Evan) You know I usually like my men to be worthless, spineless pieces of scum - but in your case, I could make an exception.
        Evan: Um hmm.
        Harvey: (speaking to man in leather hood) Yeah, let me get you a little air there.
        Elvira: Excuse me, what are you doing?
        Harvey: I'm trying to set this guy free.
        Elvira: Mr. Williams paid 75 dollars an hour to be chained up like that.
        Harvey: Let's make this simple. Who here wants to be uncuffed? (all the chained men sound their disapprovals)

      • (Joe is dancing to the YMCA and directing traffic)
        Nash (to a Woman who's laughing): Uhh, I don't know him. We're not together. (he continues to dance and direct traffic a little more and Nash is laughing now after he's done) Bubba, that was beautiful. Don't ever do it again.

      • (Trying to catch a guy who's on PCP who thinks he's a tiger)
        Joe: Here kitty, kitty, kitty. (to Nash) You think a can of tuna will do the trick?
        Nash: Uh, maybe if you hit him in the head with it. (after the guy jumps on Joe, Nash knocks him out with a frying pan)
        Joe: Well, you always wanted to go big game hunting.
        Nash: Yeah, but in Africa less paperwork. (Nash is rubbing his foot) Kitty stepped on my foot.
        (Cuts to them returning to the SIU with the guy all duct tape up)
        Michelle: Whoa, what's going on with him.
        Nash: His drug of choice is PCP and apparentally handcuffs just don't do it for him. (they set him down in a chair and start wheeling him away) Come on, puddy cat.

      • (Nash and Joe return to the SIU and no phones are ringing)
        Nash: Wait a minute.
        Joe: What?
        Nash: You notice something different?
        Joe: What?
        Nash: No noise.
        Joe: Oh.
        Nash: Oh, man I hope the phones aren't down again.

      • (Dispatch is calling Nash and Joe on the radio)
        Nash: Are you gonna answer that?
        Joe: They can't give us a radio call. I mean how long's it been since we did a radio call?
        Nash: Probably before they had radios. Pick it up. (Dispatcher calls again)
        Joe: I was hoping if I ignored it they'd just skip on down to somebody else.
        Nash: Yeah, well guess again. (Joe answers it and after he's done Nash, Harvey and Evan all clap) Very nice, very nice. Nice to see you haven't lost your touch. (the radio call was for a 240)
        Joe: What's a 240?
        Nash: Beats the hell outta me. I'll tell ya when we get there.
