  • Quotes

    • Eckhart: That casket left my funeral parlor with one body in it, only one. I swear.
      Brenda: And how can you be sure of that, sir?
      Eckhart: Because at Sheffield & Eckhart, I'm what's known as the closer.
      (Brenda and Gabriel look at each other)
      Brenda: 'Scuse me?
      Eckhart: I'm the last person to view the body. And then I close the coffin. Tight.

    • Michael Morgan: Who is going to reimburse me for the wedding? This woman here is the caterer. Her bill alone is $30,000.
      Pope: A number which would pale in comparison to the bill your lawyers would charge you for suing us in a lawsuit you cannot possibly win.

    • Brenda: (going over the case with her team) And the wife?
      Sanchez: I put Mrs. Hodges in your office, Chief.
      Brenda: I can see that Detective. Yes?
      Sanchez: (looking at the pacing widow in Brenda's office) Well, she didn't know about the naked dead chick falling out of her husband's casket until I told her, so she's a little bent out of shape.

    • Chief Pope: You shut down a church. And a funeral home. You arrested a bride...
      Brenda: I did that groom a big favor.
      Pope: I'm sure, but his family is in the lobby and - surprisingly - they don't agree. The father of the bride, who has money coming out of his...whatever, choose your orifice, is threatening a lawsuit.
      Brenda: Chief Pope, How is this MY fault?
      Pope: Three words: Flynn and Provenza.

    • Provenza: (Looking at the blonde who has just rolled out of Ray Hodge's dropped casket) Wow. Looks like you can take it with you.

    • Provenza: Nothing tastes better than somebody else's wedding cake. Mine tasted like prison food.

    • Brenda: Detective, what do you think of my lipstick?
      Daniels: Are you asking as a friend or the Chief?
      Brenda: Why didn't you ever say anything?
      Daniels: Same reason I never said anything about your sweaters.

    • Brenda: (Handing the bride her cake topper) This is almost as sweet as the frosting on your wedding cake.

    • Pope: (about video of Brenda online) Congratulations, Chief Johnson.  You have just become the most downloaded fully clothed woman on the internet!
