    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jane: (picking up Danny, who has been interrogating a sex shop owner) So, Softie's Joy Toy Emporium?
        Danny: Masters in Psychology, yeah? Analyze that.
        Jane: Well, work, not pleasure, I trust.
        Danny: Bit of both.

      • Terry: (briefing the Roughies) Bobby and Crystal Yo, model citizens until they gained permanent residency.
        Maddock: And the worst father and daughter combo since Herod and Salome.
        Zack: Who?
        Danny: Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne.

      • Danny: (insultingly referring to Jane) Calamity Jane.
        Jane: (referring to Danny, in return) Oh, and 'Dan, Dan, the garbage man'.

      • Jane: Senior Customs Officer Jane Durant, and you are...?
        Danny: Never bloody mind.
        Jane: Oh. Well, 'Never bloody mind', you might want to know you've got a large bit of what I really hope is bergamot on your head and a dungy kind of smell.

      • Danny: (walking up to a car where Zack and Donna are having sex) You're married, for chrissakes! It's not normal!
        Zack: Piss off!
        Danny: (walking away) I mean, it really isn't normal.

    • NOTES (4)

      • William Wallace (Tom) was nominated for "Best Performance by a Supporting Actor- Television" at the 2007 New Zealand Screen Awards.

      • In New Zealand, prostitution was made legal in 2003. It is legal for someone under the age of 18 to be a prostitute, but it is illegal for anyone to either profit from her work (pimp, or madam), or for any person to pay for those services. Apparently the law is designed to punish those who desire those services from underage girls, not the girls themselves.

      • The opening credits is accompanied by the song "Long White Cross" by one of New Zealand's best known bands, Pluto, from Auckland.

      • There was a bit of an uproar in New Zealand over the cast of Orange Roughies, since two of the show's most important characters, Danny and Jane, are played by Australians Nicholas Coghlan and Zoe Naylor.
