Episode Quotes
Monroe: This is awfully early.
Nick: Can you trace an antique watch?
Monroe: Wow. You’re actually calling me for what I do. I might have to charge you for this.

Nick: I’m with my partner. We’re coming over.
Monroe: I get it. Be cool. Wear pants.

Monroe: Good morning. Well, not that good if somebody died, I guess. But, um, yeah, come on in.

Nick: He’s after Hank.
Monroe: Hank? Why?
Nick: He put him in prison.
Monroe: Oh, yeah, that’ll do it. These guys carry grudges to the grave. And usually it’s your grave.

Renard: You’re lucky to be alive. Pulling a stunt like that. I should have your badge.
Hank: If you want it, you can have it.
Renard: I’d rather have you alive and wearing it.

Cultural References
Monroe: "Just the facts," right.

"Just the facts" is the catchphrase of Detective Sergeant Joe Friday (Jack Webb) in the radio series, 1951 TV series, and 1967 revival of Dragnet.
