        Kim: Scrooge.
        Davis: You have no idea.

      • Davis: Nice job out there.
        Kim: Yeah, that's why they pay me the small bucks.

      • {about Sully}
        Davis: I knew there was a human somewhere in there.
        Jimmy: Who?
        Davis: You wouldn't believe me if I told you.

      • Jimmy: One job finished, everybody made it, haven't gotten another one yet.
        Kim: Yeah, "yet." Don't jinx me.
        Doc: Finished Kim?
        Kim: See?

      • Jimmy: Isn't Kim the supervisor, Doc?
        Doc: Was I talking to you?

        Monroe: I'm not in the mood for your mouth, Bosco.
        Bosco: An onion...named Oliver.

      • Bosco: You know what you should get the kid? Cops and Robbers set. Plastic handcuffs, chrome revolver...
        Monroe: Guns?
        Bosco: Yeah, that's what I always got.
        Monroe: And look how well-adjusted you turned out.

      • {Bosco finds a store with an "Oliver the Onion In Stock" sign}
        Monroe: Oh Bosco...I think I love you.

      • Sully: So you're all alone?
        Audrey: I wasn't alone.
        Sully: But, you have no family.
        Audrey: I got Big Bill, Roger Shakes, Mr. Sam...
        Sully: Oh, you mean the Bums.
        Audrey: Homeless.
        Sully: Right, sorry. Homeless.

      • Jimmy: She's not the flavor of the month.
        Doc: Okay, all right, it's serious guys. True love. I mean, who gives a damn?
        Jimmy: You know, I think you need to change the tone of your voice or there's gonna be a reprimand waiting for you at the end of this.
        Doc: Again, who gives a damn?

      • Walsh: Hey Nieto, there was a message from a guy who says he thinks he's your brother.
        Carlos: With what my mother cost me, I can't afford a brother.

      • Davis: You talking about Oliver the Onion?
        Bosco: You've heard of it?
        Davis: Oh, yeah. I got three sisters with four kids. You better believe Uncle Ty's heard of the Onion.

      • Carlos: Great, a Charlie Brown Christmas.
        Davis: This is not a Charlie Brown tree.
        Carlos: Right. It's uh, massive. Very festive.
        Davis: I got it at the supermarket. It was the biggest one.
        Carlos: Deck the halls.
        Davis: I didn't see you running out to get decorations.
        Carlos: And you won't.

      • {about the Santa hat}
        Bosco: That's cute. But I don't think they're gonna let you wear that out on the street, Sul.
        Sully: What?
        Bosco: The hat. It's not an approved uniform item.
        Sully: Don't you ever shut-up, Bosco?
        Monroe: Nope.

      • Davis: How you doing?
        Sully: Me?
        Davis: Yeah. You all right?
        Sully: Why wouldn't I be?
        Davis: It's Christmas Eve. You hate Christmas.
        Sully: Know what I hate more?
        Davis: People asking you how you're doing?
        Sully: Bingo.

      • Doc: Sara got a kid.
        Carlos: What?
        Doc: Morales. She uh, sent me a Christmas card with a picture of her kid in it.
        Carlos: Oh yeah...cute.
        Doc: Five months old.
        Carlos: Wait a minute, Doc. This isn't yo...
        Doc: No, don't be stupid. I ain't seen her in two years. How's that work?

      • {that Monroe can't keep the toy}
        Jerry: Seems so unfair.
        Bosco: Yeah, tell me about it. I'm the one that caught the guy.

      • Bosco: A child molester with his own Santa Claus suit? If that doesn't say Christmas, what does? Huh?

      • Monroe: Bosco, you don't understand the pressure of having to have the right toy, the right clothes...
        Bosco: Oh, come on. I've watched Yokas go through this every year for the past ten years. I thought Talking Elmo was gonna kill her.

      • Bosco: I used to stop by Faith's place, have a drink with her and Fred, you know, play with whatever toys Charlie got.
        Monroe: They still out of town?
        Bosco: I think so. I don't know. Never really heard. I don't know how I would hear.
        Monroe: Do you wanna go by there?
        Bosco: No. No.

      • Monroe: You could always come by my house. I'm baking a turkey, you know...
        Bosco: Are you being nice to me?
        Monroe: I don't know know what just...I don't know what just happened. I'm sorry. This whole holiday thing must be like, hitting me in my head.
        Bosco: Good. 'Cause you were starting to give me the creeps there.
        Monroe: Trust me, it won't happen again.

      • Carlos: Man, it's gotta suck to spend Christmas in the hospital, huh?
        Doc: Better than the morgue.
        Carlos: Wow. You've developed this knack for stating the obvious.

      • Proctor: Jimmy Doherty called here for you.
        Carlos: Doherty.
        Doc: If he calls back tell him he ain't our boss.

      • Proctor: He said he wanted you to get back to the house as soon as possible.
        Carlos: Yeah, we heard the three calls on the radio.
        Proctor: He said it was important.

      • Doc: Oh, oh well if the Lieutenant said it's important we should just drop all this useless medical treatment we're performing out here and rush right in. He calls back again you tell him we said to kiss our ass.
        Carlos {to Doc}: Yeah. I'm really liking the new you. {to Proctor--whispering} Hey. You don't really have to say that we said that.

      • Sully: You know what would make me happy? Knowing that little girl's in a warm bed tonight before it starts snowing. We make that happen, I'll sing a carol.
        Davis: You know a carol?

      • {about Audrey}
        Davis: The streets aren't the place for a little girl like that.
        Shakes: Little? Sometimes I think that lady's older than me.

      • Sully: Audrey, you're 12 years old. You don't get to run around and do whatever you want to.
        Audrey: 12 year olds used to ride for the Pony Express.
        Sully: What?
        Audrey: Look it up.
        Davis: Average life expectancy was about 25 back then. We take care of kids today. You want coffee?
        Sully and Audrey: Yeah.
        Sully: {pointing at Audrey} No.

      • {after taking a report of a family's gifts being stolen}
        Monroe: Too bad there isn't a toy store guy who wants to help us out.
        Bosco: You think?
        Monroe: He seemed like he wanted to do us a favor.
        Bosco: Yeah, he did.
        Monroe: How much money you got?

      • Carlos' Brother: He doesn't want to see me.
        Kim: He's just busy.
        Carlos' Brother: But none of you are?

      • Carlos: I wasn't looking for any...any brother. I was only um, I'm just trying to help Kylie.
        Carlos' Brother: I know. I already went to the hospital. I got the tests done yesterday. I'm a match, I can donate. That's what I wanted to tell you.

      • Carlos: You've been looking for me?
        Carlos' Brother: Yeah, for 25 years.

      • Audrey: Your problem is you forgot. All grown-ups forget.
        Sully: Forget what?
        Audrey: Do you remember when you believed in Santa Claus? How Christmas Eve was the best ever? A man you didn't know was coming thousands of miles to give you a toy.
        Sully: It's not real though.
        Audrey: It is to kids. And if everyone could always remember what that feels like...

      • Monroe: That was the perfect way to end Christmas Eve.
        Bosco: Not too bad.
        Monroe: You know, you really are a big softy.
        Bosco: Keep that to yourself, Officer.
        Monroe: Like anyone would believe it.

      • {dressed up as Santa and a reindeer}
        Sully: You ever tell anybody about this I'll kill you.
        Davis: Tell anybody about what?
