        Hammer: Also hard to say.

      • Kenny: You know, Inspector, in this business we call a show, contestants come and go, but Mel just wasn't a first name on a cheap tag. No, he had a last name too. What the hell was it?

      • Hammer: There's something about that guy I don't trust.
        Doreau: What is that?
        Hammer: He's a game show host!

      • Doreau: Oh, Hammer, you're so paranoid. Every death isn't a murder.

        Kenny: No. Your coffee-making days are over. Make me a coffee cake.

      • Hammer: The only game show on TV I like is Divorce Court, because they give away the best prize.

      • Doreau: Have you ever played Trivial Pursuit? That takes brains.
        Hammer: Doreau, I am in pursuit of one thing, and that is justice. And that takes bullets.
