    • Joe: You got the ring, right?
      Nash: Yeah, I got the ring.
      Joe: Oh, good. I thought you might've lost it in a gun battle. You know, uh, you were really brave out there today.
      Nash: Well, thank you, bubba.
      Joe: Did you ever consider using a moisturizer?
      Nash: What?
      Joe: Well, you know, I noticed that your skin gets little dry during the winter, you know, you're outdoors a lot and it might help.
      Nash: Alright, alright, alright. Just knock it off. The case is over. Fineto.
      Joe: What?
      Nash: The case, the ring, uh, Jerry, Gordy, Tim, Bill, Pepe, the whole capoodle, it's finished, done.
      Joe: I was talking to you as a friend. I didn't know you were so touchy. I won't say another word.
      Nash: That's good, don't.
      Joe: Do you think Pepe meant it when he said we made a really attractive couple?
      Nash (laughs): I never gave it a second though.
      Joe: Ah, I'm sure he's not the first one who's ever thought about it.
      Nash: Stop it. You know what, I'm going to tell Conrad the truth, too.
      Joe: About what?
      Nash: About us. About how we're not a couple.
      Joe: Why? What's the point? The case is over, we got the ring back.

    • Joe: You know, this is a party. You could forget work for one afternoon.
      Nash (hangs up the phone): Uh, you might wanna bites and stuffing your face with that cake, kinda just glance around and see if you see Tim anywhere. You know, you remember that is why we're here. Well, that, and your love of weddings.

    • Joe (about Whitney): She blew you off, huh? Bummer.
      Nash: Don't you have anything else better to do?
      Joe: No, not really.

    • Pepe: You know, when you spoke of your partnership with Nash I always wondered if you were being euphemistic.
      Joe: Oh, yeah, I was. I-I mean, I- I wasn't. I-I, uh--
      Pepe: I have to say, the two of you make a very striking couple.

    • Joe: We do have you, Tony. I mean, your undying corporation?
      Tony B: What are my options?
      Nash: Options? Let's see, option one would be you corporate with us. Option two would be you go to jail forever. (sighs) I can't think of any more.
      Tony B: Corporate or go to jail forever? I think I'll corporate.
      Nash (laughs): No rust on you, baby. Let's set it up.

    • Joe: Come on, Nash. This gig will only work if we're seen as a couple.
      Nash: Ahh, but there in lies the problem. We are not a couple.
      Joe: Can I still call 'ya?
      Nash: You need help.

    • Bryn (after she tackles and handcuffs a guy who is only wearing a towel): Nash, I want a raise.
      Joe: I can see one comin' now. (Nash laughs, Bryn glares at him)
      Nash: Don't forget your towel.

    • Bryn (to a suspect): Stop runnin', you're pissin' me off!

    • Nash: If you have a scam, why don't you just say, 'Nash, I have a scam. Are you interested?'
      Joe: Because if I told you the whole thing I knew you wouldn't do it and that's ridiculous. Why should somebody else get those 10,000 dollars instead of us?
      Nash: Joe, let me ask you somethin'. Do you remember the last time that we pretended to be gay?
      Joe: Vaguely. I was drunk.
      Nash: Well, let me see if I can refresh your memory. Glen and Fred, the parakeets, the wine tour. Uh, oh, and the 19 performances of a chorus line.
      Joe: Hey, I think you learn by experience in life, you know? A lot of gay guys pass themselves off as straights now-a-days. What's the difference?
      Nash: I'm not talking about this with you anymore. We are not doing the gay gig. We are going back to our day gig.

    • Joe: Listen, let me do all the talking, okay?
      Nash: Why?
      Joe: Because I set this whole thing up, that's why.
      Nash: Ah, that's what worries me.

    • Joe: You think the chief would shut us down?
      Nash: If this hits the press wrong, or we don't catch these guys. Absolutely, in a heartbeat.
      Joe: Well, all the more reason to take this off duty gig.
      Nash: No!
      Joe: A little financial security...
      Nash: Make the money yourself. What do you need me for? Nah, forget it. I didn't ask that question. Forget that.
      Joe: Okay. Well, as long as you asked. A guy wants us to locate a missing ring. That's all there is to it.
      Nash: That's never all there is to it.
      Joe: Well, come with me, meet the client, hear what he has to say and if you don't like it, walk away. If you like it, we split 10,000 dollars.
      Nash: Nobody's gonna give us 10,000 dollars. What aren't you telling me?
      Joe: Nothing.

    • Joe: This is incredible opportunity, man. It's an off-duty job, it came from my old detective agency. It could be the easiest money you've ever made in your life.
      Nash: We made an agreement.
      Joe: What?
      Nash: You promised me that you would never use the words 'easy' and 'money' in the same sentence ever again.
      Joe: Okay, well, then just watch 10,000 dollars go flying out the window. Say 'bye-bye.'
      Nash: Bye-bye.

    • Joe: So I hear you had a hot date with Whitney.
      Nash: Oh, yeah, really hot. Nothing like a crime scene visit to put a lot of passion in your relationship.
      Joe (laughs): So, uh, any details, pronouncements?
      Nash: Yeah, we got a smashed up guy and five million dollars in funny money.
      Joe: No, I mean about Whitney. You know, marriage, children, y'know for the future Dominguez child to play with.
      Nash (laughs): That's very funny. Keep that sense of humor, bubba. You're gonna need it on this one.

    • Pepe (speaking at a wedding): I would also like to toast another special couple who have been together for 20 years and who remind us on this special day that true love really does last forever - Joe Dominguez and Nash Bridges. (audience applause)
      Nash (whispering to Joe): Okay, we can go now. Thank you, honey. (as Joe and Nash exit) We're done in this town. I'm gonna kill ya. Get your hand off my ass.
