Episode Quotes
Bo: So what are you gonna tell Leta?
Sam: That he’s dead?
Bo: Yeah, she damn near ripped your ears off the last time you brought Bart home when he was alive.
Sam: Well, maybe we should get the autopsy started before we call her.
Bo: Not an ice cube's chance in hell. The boys don’t got a phone and Doc Kinman and Daisy are out in the boonies delivering that baby. Do you think that woman can drop that baby after delivering sixteen?
Sam: Sixteen?
Bo: Sixteen, seventeen.

Abigail: Daddy?
Sam: Yeah?
Abigail: Tell me all the ways that you love me.
Sam: Well...I love you like the stars love the sky...like the sea loves the sand...like the flowers love the bees.
Abigail: I love you, Daddy.

Al: You’re a male of the Caucasian persuasion, fortyish, and you’re a…what is this…(looks at his uniform)...er…sheriff…you’re a sheriff of a small town.
Sam: (impatiently) Al…Al…I know that, okay? My last name is Fuller, I’ve got a daughter named Abigail. Now tell me something I don’t know!

Al: How do you know that someone pushed him?
Sam: I don’t know anything and I won’t know anything until the town doctor comes back and does an autopsy OR you and Ziggy get me some data!
Al: Hey…hey…take it easy will ya!
Sam: I can’t take it easy. I’m too frustrated, okay? I’ve been trying to get answer all day and I can’t get any from anybody today – especially you!
Al: Okay. Just a sec. I’m doing the best I can, you know.

Al: Clayton’s wife isn’t dead.

Al: Get outta here! She killed her own kids?
