  • A Catchy Way To Start A Catchy Series! Definitely Worth Checking Out!

    The Very First Episode In An Amazingly Funny Series! This is a great tv show for fans of the show "Cops" who also look for a little comedy on their Sunday nights. After watching this, you'll be eagerly awaiting each new installment of this great series! It is also good to check out this episode if you enjoy the series, watch it often, and wanna see how it all started. Some very funny stuff that will keep you laughing til' the very end! Great Stuff! The writers did a great job and have very creative (and may I point out "funny") minds!moreless
  • A great start to great series.

    One of the funniest shows on television debuts, and it couldn't have been more irreverent, edgy, funny, and innovative. Reno 911, is like Cops, only on crack and 40 times funnier. Whether it's the insane musings of Trudy Weigl, or the ambiguosly gay lueitenant, Dangle, who shorts are just a little too short, this how never fails in the laughs department, and neither does this episode. Simply hilarious. Too many lines to list this episode is pakced with humor, wit, satire, and just plain silliness. Deputy Garcia beating up a mime, and Junior being attacked by a german attack dog. And the whol episode culminates in the gang sitting around a campfire burning punds of marijuana, saying how great it is to be a cop. How great it is that we get to watch them do it.moreless

  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Wiegel: Last night, at about 0700 hours, I returned to my home, and I de-robed myself, and noticed that I had a Pez in my belly button. Have you ever heard of anything as ridiculous as that?
      Dangle: Trudy, did you just make up the story about finding a Pez in your belly button just to get attention from us and to have something to say in the morning meeting? Or did it really happen?
      (Wiegel looks guilty)

    • Wiegel: There is some racial tension on the squad. And, I mean, I think it's normal. But I think, unfortunately, it all stems from one guy...from Officer Garcia. And, I mean, the poor guy can't help it, he's Mexican.

    • (Dangle is discussing the use of the N-word with the gang.)
      Dangle: (answering Garcia's question) You want me to check our tolerance policy? The answer is No; It is not OK.
      Jones: (raising hand) Um, could I? I don't use it, but, if I wanted to…
      Williams: Yeah!
      Jones: Could I?
      Williams: I think I should.
      Wiegel: What if someone says, Whe-who-wh-which nigger took the last donut?
      Dangle: That's wildly inappropriate.

    • Garcia: (To a mime he just attacked) You're speaking English now!

    • Wiegel: You know...I collect baby clothes. Just in case.
      Dangle: You collect baby clothes?

    • Jones: (About Johnson) Her hair's like a dandelion, like if you blew on it, a lot of it'd fall off.

    • Wiegel: Raineesha Williams is a loud-mouthed, backstabbing...Jew. I wanna say Jew, but I don't think that she's Jewish. I actually think that she's very openly Catholic, which I have a problem with too.

    • Dangle: (About his shorts) I actually had to lobby the sheriff's department to wear these. But my argument was, "I'm out there in the streets everyday, I've gotta be able to move like a cheetah. Like a law enforcement cheetah."

    • Johnson: As it turns out, I am one of the better-looking women here.

    • Johnson: You know, I had a saying before I came to work here, and that was that feminism is bullshit, but um, I feel a really a sisterhood with these special, special ladies.
      (cut to next interview clip)
      Wiegel: Officer Johnson …is a whore.

    • Deputy Dangle: I don't do grandma push-ups, but they're not that good either.

    • Deputy Johnson: I love someone who has to say "You know what I'm sayin'?" after everything she says, because quite honestly, no, I don't know what she's saying. Nor do I care.

    • Deputy Wiegel: Deputy Dangle and I have a very special relationship. It's like we're brother and sister. But like a brother and sister who have sex.

    • Dangle: Who put up the sticker in the locker room that says, "Legalize It?" It's got the little marijuana leaf and it says "Legalize It."
      Johnson: I don't know why you're looking at me.
      Dangle: I'm not looking at you. I'm looking here. I'm thinkin' at you. I'm lookin' at here.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Star Trek
      In the opening scene Garcia mistakenly shoots a deputy at what turns out to be a surprise party for him. Rather than have one of the regular cast members get shot, they took a tip from the series Star Trek, where when you saw a crew member that wasn't part of the normal cast, odds are they were going to get killed on that episode's mission.

    • Williams: Officer Jones...we had a thing going on.
      This is a slightly altered line from the Billy Paul song "Me And Mrs. Jones".
