  • Quotes

    • Dispatch: 2nd squad, be advised. Female trapped in porta-potty in the east river park. This perfectly summarizes my last relationship.

    • Nicole Brandt: (to Det. Alvarez as walks off) Love you. (to Det. Shraeger) Hate you.
      Det. Shraeger: You know, that is not what you said in 8th grade when you were going through your little lesbian phase. I'll bet Eddie doesn't know about that, either.
      Nicole Brandt: Hag.
      Det. Shraeger: Trollop.

    • Sgt. Brown: Victim's name is Bruce Moreno. They got him at Saint Vincent's. Go take a statement.
      Det. Alvarez: Got it. Leave the Q&A to the E&A.

    • Det. Alvarez: Mr. Moreno, you have my word. Eddie Alvarez is gonna catch the guy that did this to you.
      Bruce Moreno: Who the hell's Eddie Alvarez?
      Det. Alvarez: M... me.
      Bruce Moreno: Great. My life is ruined, and they send me a cop who talks about himself in the third person.

    • Det. Banks: (to Det. Delahoy) Mm-hmm. In what universe do you think I intend to spend one more minute in a murder store, partner?
      Sgt. Brown: In the universe where I'm God.
      (Det. Delahoy points to their boss, Sgt. Brown.)

    • Dispatch: 2nd squad, possible 10-10 at Mike's Meat warehouse. But more importantly, what is it about me that scares men away?

    • Amy Burch: Can I ask you something? Between us girls.
      Det. Beaumont: Okay.
      Amy Burch: Well, you know Henry and I are saving ourselves for our wedding night.
      Det. Beaumont: Oh?
      Amy Burch: Well, I really want it to be special, and I know from Henry you're an experienced woman. And I was wondering if... if you think he would like it if I... (whispers to Det. Beaumont's ear)
      Det. Beaumont: You're gonna be married for a thousand years. Guaranteed.

    • Det. Alvarez: Your man is solving this case.
      Nicole Brandt: Why isn't my man tearing off my clothes?
      Det. Alvarez: (points to the other room) Uh, 'cause that's two-way glass.
      Nicole Brandt: So I'll do it two ways.

    • (arguing about a case involving the son of Walter's golf buddy)
      Det. Shraeger: Did you know about the hit and run?
      Walter Shraeger: Of course not. What kind of a man do you think I am?
      Det. Shraeger: Honestly? I don't know. I need a name. And I need you to think about what's more important to you -- your golf buddy or your daughter.
