Marlo Cruz: Rough night?
Sam Swarek: Oh, I'm fine. You?
Marlo Cruz: It was all right.
Sam Swarek: That's our conversation. Right there. Always the same, every time.
Marlo Cruz: Wow. Maybe it's just easier that way.
Sam Swarek: You know, I don't wanna wake up one day and realize nobody knows me.
Marlo Cruz: I wanna know you.
Sam Swarek: Okay. Uh, I like tool sheds.
Marlo Cruz: Why?
Sam Swarek: Well, when I was 6 my dad locked me in the tool shed overnight because I broke his hockey stick. And when I was around 10 he made me sleep in there for a week 'cause I didn't mow the lawn. I forgot. And by the time I was 16, uh, I was screwing up just so I wouldn't have to sleep under the same roof as that guy. That was around the same time I met Charlie. And, uh, saw that a man could be kind and fair and good.
Marlo Cruz: So today was an awful day.
Sam Swarek: It was an awful day.
Charlie Fitzgerald: I've known him since he was a teenager. I caught him selling stolen car parts.
Traci Nash: What?
Charlie Fitzgerald: Yeah. And I brought him in and for every question I asked him he had three for me, right? (Traci laughs) So, I figure a kid this nosy, he'd make a good copper. So I make a deal with him, I tell him I'll sweep the charges under the rug if he goes back to school. Next thing I hear, he's in the Academy.
Traci Nash: Huh. YOu think you know a man.
Charlie Fitzgerald : Kitten, you never know a man.
Sam Swarek: (Sam tells Charlie what a great T.O. he was) Constantly on my ass, getting after me for breaking the rules, disobeying your orders...
Charlie Fitzgerald: Acting like a cop.
Sam Swarek: So, how are you?
Andy McNally: Uh...been fighting of a cold, actually. And I think I'm allergic to citrus. I get all, like, itchy and stuff. It's really disappointing.
Sam Swarek: Oh. Don't eat citrus.
Andy McNally: Well, that's the obvious solution. (smiling) How are you?
Sam Swarek: You know me.
Andy McNally: Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
Sam Swarek: Well, if you don't know me, I don't know who does.
Andy McNally: Oh. Well, maybe your girlfriend.
