Episode Quotes
Christopher: Nice to meet you, Winston. It's your first name or your last name?
Winston: Last.
Christopher: What's your first name?
Winston: Detective.

Winston: What kind of work problems you got?
Christopher: Oh, breakdown in civility. Coworkers I don't trust. Boss who doesn't trust me. Lately I've been questioning my choice of profession.
Winston: Yeah, well, that's going around. Laverne. Laverne Winston. Yeah, I got a name that sounds like a girl's name. I also carry a .45. I got a history of disciplinary problems, and this ain't my first drink today.

Christopher: No, you don't have to take this. I'm just saying... (Katherine cocks the gun and points it at him) Apparently you know what you're doing.
Katherine Walters: I'm single, and I live downtown.

Christopher: Do you remember what you said? Nobody deserves to die.
"Christopher Chance": Sounds like me.
Christopher: No, before that, I just did my job, slept at night--everything was easy.
"Christopher Chance": No, it wasn't. It was never easy. You just didn't know it yet.

Cultural References
Guerrero: My heart grew three sizes that day.

In How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Grinch is a green-furred misanthropic creature who hates everyone, and hates Christmas. At the end, he steals the townspeople's gifts and food but when he almost loses it over a cliff, his heart grows three sizes because of his sudden compassion, giving him the strength to pull it back.

Episode References
We find out that Winston's first name is Laverne.
