    • QUOTES (4)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: There are times when you have to step back and take a look at yourself, at your job. Tonight there's a game going on between the police and the press. The police investigate crimes, find the facts, and this time anyway, try to sit on 'em.

      • (as Kevin and Frank are exiting the crime scene)
        Tom: You got anything?
        Kevin: Ah, not much.
        Tom: Your nose is gonna grow a foot for that one, Kevin.
        Kevin: Well, if you don't want me to lie, don't ask.

      • Lt. Hogan: What is that smell?
        Frank: (pointing at Freddie, who has just returned from collecting evidence on a rooftop and is covered in pigeon poop) Eau de pigeon.
        Lt. Hogan: OK, Colby, keep after those files. (to Kevin and Frank) You guys out of the office. Not you, Carson. You go get changed or something.
        Freddie: Ah well, I found some, uh, uh, evidence on the roof.
        Lt. Hogan: I don't care if you found Amelia Earhart. Take that suit out and dry clean it. No, burn it! Now! (Freddie heads to his locker and Lt. Hogan in the opposite direction) Showers are this way, Carson.
        Freddie: I gotta get some clothes, Lieutenant.
        Lt. Hogan: Somebody'll bring them to you.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Cats they say have nine lives; cat burglars, one. And that's all Anne Christopher had. Then what made her throw it away? Love? Excitement? Because she found the one man who made nothing else matter? I don't know why people do things. It's my job to know but, I don't.

      • Wages of Sin

      • Amelia Earhart
        Amelia Earhart (1897 - 1937) is perhaps the most famous aviatrix in history. The American aviation pioneer was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, an achievement for which she became the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross. She is best known for her failed attempt to circumnavigate the globe in 1937, a flight during which she disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. She was never found.

      • Dickens
        Refers to Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870), who was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and one of the most popular of all time. The most famous characters he created include Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, Oliver Twist and The Artful Dodger

        His works continue to be popular to the extent that that they have never gone out of print.
