      • Wilson: [watching Sandra Pullman conduct an interview] Come on. Ask if she knew Michelle Davis.
        Gerry Standing: Why don't you just shut up and listen? You might learn something.
        Wilson: You do realize I outrank you.
        Gerry Standing: You don't. I'm not in the job any more. But when I was, we had a governor, D.A.C. Bevin. He outranked me. I broke his jaw.

      • Supt. Sandra Pullman: Hannah Taylor, eighteen. Abducted from her home on the second of April, 1992. Two days later her mother received a ransom demand for twenty thousand pounds. The ransom was paid, but Hannah wasn't returned.
        Wilson: Three weeks later, Michelle Davis, nineteen; she's abducted as she returns home after a night out with friends. Neither girl's seen nor heard of again. Hannah and Michelle lived five streets apart. There's no evidence to suggest that they knew each other.
        Supt. Sandra Pullman: But, given the geography and the M.O., we have to work on the basis that the perpetrator was the same. Now, the original investigation drew a blank, but in 1998 forestry workers discovered a decomposed body in Epping Forest, and DNA samples on file from the original investigation showed it to be Hannah Taylor.
        Wilson: However, last month an inspection reveals that a technician at the lab that had conducted the DNA tests wasn't following procedure. He mixed up the girls' DNA samples. The body isn't Hannah Taylor; it's Michele Davis.

      • [Dave Milner is eating a very fatty breakfast. Gerry looks on in disgust]
        Gerry Standing: Have you any idea what that's doing to your arteries?
        Dave Milner: I'm more worried about losing one of my balls. How often do you check yours for lumps?
        Gerry Standing: 'Scuse me! I didn't buy you breakfast so we could discuss how often you fondle the crown jewels.
        Dave Milner: Sandra Pullman... She as hard as they say?
        Gerry Standing: Don't you worry about your lumps. One look from her can shrivel your balls from fifty yards. Enjoy your breakfast.

      • When retired cop Gerry Standing is challenged by DI Wilson on how things were done in 'his' day, Gerry explains that they would arrest who they fancied for the crime, beat a confession out of them and then go down the pub. Gerry then walks off whistling the theme tune to Dixon of Dock Green, a 1950s/60s british Police show.
