  • Quotes

    • (Det. Shraeger posing as a hooker on the street.)
      Det. Shraeger: Slow tonight.
      Hooker #1: Cold?
      Det. Shraeger: No, slow.
      Hooker #2: It's the economy, girl. Everybody's cutting back.
      Det. Shraeger: Yeah, either that or maybe the allure of, uh, screwing a stranger under the bridge has died out.

    • Sgt. Brown: Some city councilor's daughter was attacked. First thing tomorrow morning, I need you to go there, take a statement.
      Det. Banks: With all due respect, uh, sarge, we'd rather work Kowalski.
      Sgt. Brown: And I'd rather my son didn't wear his mother's underpants. Be there.

    • Det. Banks: A cat? We're here because... somebody killed a cat?
      Councilman Harbor: Look, I chair the city's terrorism task force, okay? Somebody could be targeting me or my family. So I expect the NYPD to take this very seriously.
      Det. Delahoy: With all due respect, councilman, I think you're a little confused as to what the 'P' in 'NYPD' stands for.

    • Det. Beaumont: You come over from vice?
      Det. Shraeger: Uh, guilty.
      Det. Beaumont: They made you dress like a hooker, didn't they?
      Det. Shraeger: I prefer 'lady of the evening'.

    • Det. Beaumont: Here's what you need to know about the 2nd. Alvarez talks about himself in the third person. Banks sleeps in a bulletproof vest, and yesterday, Delahoy named his mustache.
      Det. Shraeger: Oh. What about Walsh?
      Det. Beaumont: On the plus side, he doesn't stare at your boobs when he's talking to you.
      Det. Shraeger: Ah. The downside?
      Det. Beaumont: I got great boobs. Why isn't he looking?

    • Det. Shraeger: Maybe Eddie would like to hear how you went to senior prom with the entire lacrosse team. How they call your junk the easy-bake oven.
      Nicole Brandt: Bitch.
      Det. Shraeger: Slut.
      Nicole Brandt: Cow.

    • Det. Walsh: Here's the difference between you and me. You think people shouldn't keep secrets. I think we are our secrets.
      Det. Shraeger: I have secrets.
      Det. Walsh: The vibrator in your bedside table is not a secret.

    • Det. Walsh: (holding the badge of his slain partner) This is how it works. We pass the badge down until it kills you. And then we hang it on a wall. So let's raise a glass. Because a cop is dead. And he most certainly won't be forgotten. Hear, Hear.
