FILTER BY TYPE

  • 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".
