Episode Quotes
Bill: You lie detectored a guy with your ability just because he turned you down for a date?
Rachel: Maybe. Yes. Don't judge me.

Gary: I'm gonna have to take off my towel.
Bill: No, no. Don't, Gary...
Gary: And you're gonna see my fruit.
Rachel: No!
Bill: His fruit.
Gary: Yeah, I call it my fruit.

Kat: So... when do we get to do the cool stuff--you know, like track a perp, shoot a gun, rappel out of a helicopter?
Rosen: Well, fortunately, none of us have had to jump out of a helicopter yet.

Bill: Look, one good memory is worth all the bad ones. Like the time I kicked your ass-remember that.
Kat: Yep. That's not a memory. It's made up. It's head trauma.
