Mike: Well, man was his best friend. And as far as hobbies go, I'd have to say digging holes and licking himself.
Stuart: This isn't a wedding. We can't exactly say Bingo got cold feet.
Nikki: Well, actually..
Mike: Now I don't care how you do it. You find me that dog or a damn fine replacement. I want everybody thinking about one thing and one thing only-- B-I-N-G-O! And the first person who says "...and Bingo was his name-o..." is fired!
Mike: Hello...Paul! This better be good news Paul...You better listen to me Paul. You better find me that damn dog or I'm gonna come over there, duct-tape a fur coat to your ass and shove you in a little box!
(Answering machine message)
Carter: Mike it's Carter, here's the situation...Ow! Get off!
Paul: Mike, Paul here. We seem to have run into a slight logistics problem with Bingo.
Carter: Slight logistics problem? Mike, Paul lost the dog!
Paul: I knew you were gonna blame me!
Cab Driver: I am not a racecar driver.
Carter: No, you're a racist driver.

Stuart: You see, Grasshopper...One must understand the rhythms of the game--(Bruce Lee yell)--in order to truly master it. Eb and flow, Yin and Yang. Are you prepared to do battle?
Janelle: (sarcastically) No, I want you to talk some more.
(Janelle immediately scores)
Janelle: Yang that.
Paul: You know, I've been allergic to cats all my life, but at the pet morgue, nothing. Turns out I'm not allergic to dead cats.
Carter: Then you should definitely get one.
Mike: Anybody read this? Bingo died.
Karen: Ohh! Who's Bingo?
Mike: Only the city's most decorated police dog.
Nikki: Oh, yeah, right. He pulled that drowning kid out of the reservoir.
James: And didn't he sniff out 10 kilos of cocaine at La Guardia?
Mike: Yeah. Poor little guy didn't sleep for weeks after that.
Mike: Now, I don't want to hear any excuses.
Stuart: You sure, cause I've been saving the doozy. It starts out as an excuse but I end up blaming James.
Robert Maschio (Bingo's owner) would later go on to be on writer/creator Bill Lawrence's future show Scrubs.
