      • Phillip: What's your proposal?
        Nash: You give me the plate. (to Bryan) You give me the girl and I arrest both of you.
        Bryan: How does that benefit us?
        Nash: You get to live.

      • Phillip: What's your proposal?
        Nash: You give me the plate. (to Bryan) You give me the girl and I arrest both of you.

      • Joe: We almost got caught in there, y'know? I mean, Mexicans have been killed for a lot less, you know? I mean, history is full of stories where Mexicans got killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Remember the Alamo don't you?
        Nash: Bubba, it was the Anglo's that were killed at the Alamo.
        Joe: Yeah, well, only after they killed a lot of Mexicans.
        Nash: Did you ever think that maybe your dad is jealous?
        Joe: Jealous? Jealous of what?
        Nash: Oh, gee. I don't know, let me think. You've been married to the same woman for over 20 years, you've got two beautiful children, a beautiful home, an incredible life. You've come a hell of a long way from Rio Dosa, bubba.
        Joe: Me leaving Rio Dosa was the worst thing that ever happened according to him.
        Nash: That's what he says but that's not what he means. And I'll tell you somethin' else. I think he may be on to something with this guy Jerry.
        Joe: Oh, yeah? Based on what?
        Nash: Well, take your father out of the equation for a second and just look at the facts. Wouldn't you say that you'd follow up on it?

      • Joe: Do me a favor, Nasman. When the next wave of Hong Kong bad asses come for her and shoot up your place, don't send her to my place, okay?
        Nash: Wouldn't think of it.

      • Bryan: You're not gonna find anything in there.
        Nash: Well, then you shouldn't be so tense. Just sit there and shut up.

      • Nash: This is comfort food, baby. Get you in the mood.
        Tony B: The mood? What kind of mood?
        Nash: To help us.
        Tony B: Do what? Why would I want to help you do anything?
        Nash: Joe, maybe you better play him the tape. (Joe plays the recording of Tony B setting up a deal)
        Tony B: Alright, alright. I see what you're angle is here, okay? Since this is about currency plates it makes it a federal gig, right? The next thing you know I'm spending 25 to 30 on some federal beef, right?
        Nash: Yeah, that's a very good idea.

      • Nash: Bubba, did you actually think that maybe he actually did hear somethin'?
        Joe: You just don't get it, do 'ya?
        Nash: Get what?
        Joe: He's pissed off 'cause I've excluded him from the package case now he's manufacturing his own case.
        Nash: Well, baby monitor's due operate on the same 900MhZ bandwidth as cordless phones. I mean, it's possible.
        Joe: Well, thank you very much but I've already attended the frank Dominguez night school of technology.
        Nash (laughs): Ooh, bubba. I'm thinkin' that maybe you got the problem here and not him.
        Joe: Hey, have I ever taken your father's side of yours, once?
        Nash: I'm not takin' his side. I'm offering you a simple solution. Check it out. A murder could have very well have happened. I mean, stranger things have happened.
        Joe: I got a really good idea. Why don't you just mind your own business and I'll mind my father's?
        Nash: Ooh, it's gonna be a long two weeks, huh, baby?

      • Evan: Jeez. You scared the hell out of me.
        Cassidy: Now, how am I supposed to feel safe if even I can sneak up on you?

      • Frank: I'm a night owl. You know us Dominguez men. You still having your sleep problems?
        Joe: Dad, wanting eight hours of sleep is normal.
        Frank: You're depressed, aren't you?
        Joe: I wouldn't call it a depression, no.

      • Joe: Okay, okay. What is it?
        Frank: There's been a murder.
        Joe: Murder? I'll get my gun.
        Frank: You don't need it.
        Joe: Okay, I don't get it.
        Frank: I heard voices talking about it on the baby monitor. See?
        Joe: Lucia told you about the murder?
        Frank: Don't be obtuse, son. It was two men's voices plotting on how to get rid of the body.
        Joe: So there's two guys with baby monitors plotting a murder. Is that what you're sayin'?
        Frank: No. Many cordless phones operate on the same frequency bandwidth. God, man, keep up with the technology.

      • Evan: It's ironic. I'm supposed to find you and here you are.
        Cassidy: Hi. Thanks for coming.
        Evan: Hey, you call, I jump.
        Cassidy: I like that.

      • Nash: Come on, let's talk.
        Lynette: I thought we already had a talk.
        Nash: No, no. That was a chat this is gonna be a talk.
        Lynette: What's the difference?
        Nash: If you had bad guys following you they must think you know something or have something. So this time I want you to tell me everything. And start with Bryan.
        Lynette (sighs): Bryan and I worked together last year on this boat in the South China sea. And Scott invited us to a party one night on this other guy's yacht.
        Nash: The other guy have a name?
        Lynette: I don't know. He was some rich Chinese guy, mobster.
        Nash: Probably a triad. Go on.
        Lynette: Well, this guy got really drunk like um, mean drunk and he made a pass at me. And I told him to get lost and... he tried to rape me. And Bryan got him off me but Scott... Scott beat the guy so bad he got him unconscious. I mean, Scott was totally insane. I mean, I was more scared of Scott than I was of the other guy. And then Scott threw him overboard.
        Nash: So Scott killed the mobster?
        Lynette: Yeah. He told us that if we ever mentioned it that the same kind of thing would probably happen to us. So, we went to Hong Kong and Bryan put me on a plane to get me outta there and he stayed behind 'cause I guess he figured that if both of us took off that Scott would probably get suspicious.
        Nash: You should've told me this before.
        Lynette: I know. I just didn't ever want to have to think about it again.

      • Nash: You sure you got enough gum there, bubba? Want me to pull over and get you a whole 'nother stack?
        Joe: It calms me down, okay?
        Nash: Oh, yeah. I can see that. Why you're the virtual posterboy for serenity. (laughs) Let me ask you something. How big does a wad of gum have to get before it qualifies as a cud? (laughs)
        Joe: Don't push me, I'm right on the edge, okay?
        Nash (laughs): Don't laugh, don't laugh 'cause you're liable to choke to death on that.
        Joe: That's almost funny.

      • (Joe's dad gives them elk meat as a gift)
        Inger: What is the matter with you?
        Joe: You know, as I remember, the last time I shot an elk and brought the meat home you kicked me out of the house. And when he does it it's generous.
        Inger: It is generous.

      • Nash: Tell me about this romance with Bryan.
        Lynette: Like I said. We had a romance. Big deal, y'know? We were on a sail boat together for six months. We shared one of those little Vs in the front of the boat. What do you expect?
        Nash: I'm not passin' judgement on your love life here.
        Lynette: Thank you. (laughs) I don't know. Bryan's like a 28 year old over grown kid, y'know? I mean, he's a fun guy we had a great time.
        Nash: If you had such a great time, why'd you come back?
        Lynette: Well, my contract on the boat was up. I guess after ten years of living in exotic places my wanderlust was kind of running on empty.
        Nash: Oh, yeah? Well, how did Bryan feel about that?
        Lynette (laughs): I think you could say that he was mildly perturbed.
        Nash: And you?
        Lynette: I don't know. It had more to do with the time and place than it did with the guy, I think.
        Nash: Uh huh. Is that why he's coming back?
        Lynette: I don't know.
        Nash: Well, speculate. Damn it.
        Lynette: Maybe.
        Nash: Maybe yes.
        Lynette: Maybe. Yes, maybe.

      • Nash: Harv, your homework assignment is a 500 word essay. Who I was before I wound up dead on the post office floor.
        Harvey: The Scott Putnam story? Yeah. Typed and double spaced.

      • (Looking at a package Bryan sent himself)
        Nash: Oh, look, deja vu, postage due.

      • (Frank is in the next door neighbor's apartment, and Joe went over to get him, and Inger sees the neighbor pull up and tries to distract him)
        Inger: Excuse me. Have you seen my balls?
        Jerry: Pardon me?
        Inger: I'm your neighbor, I live across the street. Inger. My baby Lucia has balls too. I think they roll under your car.

      • (About her ex-boyfriend Bryan)
        Nash: The guy gets off a 17 hour flight, goes straight to your place. Doesn't shower, doesn't go home, he wanted something.
        Lynette: I think you're lookin' at what he wanted.

      • (While they're at Cassidy and Lynette's, Harvey is looking for Evan, and he comes out of Cassidy's room)
        Harvey: You missed a spot.
        Evan: What?
        Harvey: Lipstick. You missed a spot. And that hickey on your neck, I'd ice it down, wear a turtleneck tomorrow. Or maybe a clown collar.
        Evan: Look, let me explain.
        Harvey (pulling his gun out of Evan's holster and handing it to him): And uh, you might wanna use this too.
        Evan: What for?
        Harvey: In case you get impatient, with the path of your current self-destruction. Sweet dreams. (walks away, and Cassidy comes down and gets Evan and they go back to her room)

      • (At Cassidy and Lynette's place)
        Nash: I want security on this place 24-7, you and Harv run it. So get your stuff and move in here.
        Evan: You want me to stay here?
        Nash: What is there an echo out here?

      • (Lynette was being followed, but the guys are gone now)
        Lynette: They were here, I swear they were.
        Nash: Oh, I don't doubt you. No question about it, trouble loves you.

      • (About Joe's dad, who's a cop in New Mexico)
        Joe: You know Frank called me 7 times with tips on the case.
        Nash: You gotta give him something to do. To keep him busy.
        Joe: You know any where in the bay area where he can brand cattle? (Nash laughs)

      • (Joe's dad is driving him crazy)
        Nash: Bubba, he is your dad. That's what dad's do.
        Joe: Look, I am a middle aged man. I don't need anyone to tell me what to do....except for Inger.

      • (After getting a package in the mail)
        Inger: What in the world is that?
        Joe: It's a hernia.
