    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Nash: It's not just about Cassidy leaving. It's about you, too. I don't want you to go. I would miss you too much.
        Lisa: I'll give it some thought.
        Nash: You will? Thank you.

      • Nash (to suspects): Freeze! Drop 'em. Put 'em down. (they set down their guns) In the water! Go on. Form is optional. (they jump in the water)

      • (On the phone)
        Nash: Vincent, let me tell you somethin'. If anything happens to my daughter, I will put down my badge and I will kill you.
        Vincent: That's an appropriate sentiment.

      • Nash: Lisa, what am I missing here? I mean, damn, I thought we've been doing pretty good. I- I thought we've been like, you know, making it--
        Lisa: Yeah, that's the exactly problem. As long as life goes on like this, I can't escape the Nash vortex. I need to move on with my life, and with you here, I can't. And you're not leaving, so I've gotta go some place else.
        Nash: Sorry, Lis. Damn, I've never meant to stand in your way.
        Lisa: It's not about you, Nash. It's about me.

      • Nash (after Joe sprays America 100 on his dashboard): Whoa, whoa, whoa. What the hell are you doing?
        Joe: Sealing your dash, man.
        Nash: No, no, no you're not. Stop that.
        Joe: Hey, this lasts seven years.
        Nash: Stop that. And throw that crap away.
        Joe: I can't. (reading the bottle) It says here, 'highly flammable, qualifies as toxic waste.' I'll get fined.
        Nash: How do you feel about getting dead?
        Joe: I care about the environment.

      • Cassidy: I want to live with you. Please don't say no, Daddy. Because I thought about this and it could work. Now, I know that you get home late sometimes and you might not be able to make dinner but I can fix myself dinner. And you know, next year I'm gonna be in the drama club and I'll be home late anyway, so it could really work.
        Nash: Sweetheart, I don't know. I work weekends, I work nights. My hours are all over the place. You know that. It's one of the reasons I'm not married to your mother.
        Cassidy: So the answer's no then?
        Nash: Cassidy. Honey, I love you. And I'd love to have you live with me but you need a parent with you. You need someone to be there with you.
        Cassidy: Fine, daddy. No problem.
        Nash: Cass--
        Cassidy: Good bye, Daddy.

      • Nash: I need a new strategy with Lisa.
        Joe: Try cryin', it always works on Inger.

      • Nash: I don't believe it. She's really gonna do it, man.
        Joe: Well, look at it this way, one of your ex wives is leaving town and your life was way too complicated as it was, so now it's less complicated.
        Nash: Huh. Funny. It don't feel that way.

      • Lisa: So what do you want to discuss?
        Nash: I want to discuss how serious you are about leaving.
        Lisa: You want that one a 1 to 10 scale?
        Nash: Well, alright.
        Lisa: Eight. No, maybe, nine.
        Nash: Nine? No, no, no. It can't be nine. That's too serious.

      • (Walking into Lisa's house)
        Nash: Lisa.
        Sandy: Hi, I'm Sandy with--
        Nash: You're not Lisa. Uh, Lisa, there's a for sale sign up out front there.
        Lisa: Mmhmm. Sandy just put it up.
        Nash: Oh, well, that's nice. Were you gonna talk to me about this some time or maybe just send me a postcard from somewhere?
        Lisa: I haven't sold the house, I'm just getting a feeling from the market.
        Nash: Well, I'm getting a feeling, too, and it's in the pit of my stomach and I don't like it.
        Sandy: Excuse me, sir. You better not stand around here making a scene when my clients and brokers start showing up.
        Nash: Butt out, sister.
        Lisa: It's okay, Sandy. They'll know he doesn't go with the house.

      • (Walking out a Sofia's house with a case of America 100)
        Joe: Well, we lucked out.
        Nash: Oh, yeah. That was one of the luckiest days I've ever had. One bottle of that is all I'm responsible for, the rest is yours.
        Joe: Hey, man, she wasn't gonna give up all that information for just one bottle.
        Nash: How do you know? You were all over that.
        Joe: Well, she sold it to us for wholesale, man. Besides, there's a list of over 30 cleaning products it replaces. I can use it at the bar. (sets the box in Nash's car)
        Nash: Hey, don't you spill any of that in this car.

      • Joe: Two pairs shackled together should be easy to spot.
        Nash (laughs): In this town? I wouldn't count on it, bubba.

      • Harvey: Oh, god, Nash. I think I'm in love.
        Nash: Who is it, Miss April?
        Harvey: January. I keep all the back issues.
        Nash: Let me see.
        Harvey (holds up magazine): Martha Stewart's Living. Last night I dreamed that she and I were baking up this caramel ice pecan truffles, in the nude, of course.
        Joe: Does Bonnie know about this?
        Harvey: Bonnie was in the dream, man. She was heating up the caramel.

      • Nash: Inspector Bridges and Dominguez. We'd like to have a word with you...
        Sophia: Welcome to the wonderful world of America 100. That's right - this product has well over 100 uses. Incredible, isn't it. You're wondering how you got along without it. It's a laundry detergent, a carpet cleaner, a wall washer, a concrete sealant, and you can use it both as an insect repellent and as a sunscreen with SPF of 40. It's an oil for your hair as well as your body. And it will not kill pets over 70 lbs.
        Nash: Excuse me, I don't think you understand.
