Episode Quotes
Havilland: This case is gonna be easy. I know who did it--Meyer.

Meyer: Miss, about that offer to assist me. May I change my mind?
Miss Gregory: I thought you would.

Curtis: You know something, you're the only good hoofer in the bunch.
Kathy: I don't believe you but I like to hear it.

Kathy: Didn't you ever make a mistake just once?
Havilland: More than once.

Curtis: (to Carella and Havilland) If you gentlemen will excuse me, I'll clear out before he blows up this place next.

Kathy: Did you ever hear of that old saying quit while you're ahead?
Curtis: That's for ribbon clerks.

Mrs. Gadby: I don't see why you keep hounding that boy.
Carella: Well I guess we're just mean.

Havilland: I can wait it out until hell comes, Curtis.
