  • Quotes

    • Pete: Hey.
      Myka: Don't...
      Pete: Wasn't.
      Myka: Good.
      Pete: At least it's not of my business anyway, right? But if my dad were alive I'd go to see him.

    • Leena: How are you sleeping?
      Artie: I'm not.
      Leena: I could tell. Your aura looks like hell.
      Artie: Then stop looking at it.

    • Myka: What is it with men and their balls?
      Pete: Yeah.

    • Belski: Then you get exiled off the reservation into my town, humping my leg.
      Pete: It's a nice leg.

    • Belski: Banks just hand over the money. Everyone's shy on the details.
      Pete: Which is strange.
      Belski: Tell me something I don't know.
      Pete: Uh, Mary, Queen of Scots' croquet mallet was made from a petrified narwhal's horn. She never lost a match.

    • Artie: You know, um, I had a case once where pollen from a prehistoric plant turned a woman into a sexually rapacious sleepwalker. And she was unaware that she was doing that until she, you know, pulled the pants off...
      Myka: Artie, uh... just be---be quiet.

    • Myka: What has Agent Belski done for you lately?
      Pete: Um... she sashays.
      Myka: Yeah.
      Pete: A little bit.
      Myka: No.
      Pete: She doesn't even know it.
      Myka: Oh, yes, she does. She does.

    • Myka: Okay, so what are we looking for, Artie? Are we looking for souped-up speakers or Thomas Edison's wax cylinder?
      (Pete and Artie laugh)
      Pete: Thomas Edison's what?
      Artie: Ignore him.

    • Myka: You ever see that movie The Great Santini with the tough dad and the scared kids?
      Pete: It's like that, huh?
      Myka: Yeah, except it wasn't over in two hours.

    • Myka: You know how when you sing in the shower, and it bounces off the tiles, and you sound spectacular.
      Artie: No, I never sound spectacular.

    • Belski: How does someone get invited to your party?
      Pete: Oh, well... you don't get invited. You get shoved.

    • Myka: There's three suspects, including Fissel. One was a woman.
      Pete: You sure?
      Myka: Yeah, I... felt her.
      Pete: You touched her boobies?

    • Artie: My name... doesn't matter. But I think you know who I represent.
      Dickinson: Flash Gordon?

    • Myka: Artie, I need you to find my cell phone.
      Artie: I'm not your personal cell phone locator, okay?

    • Dickinson: How they doing?
      Artie: Oh, you know, they're... mostly, they're a pain in my ass.
      Dickinson: So am I.
