Rookie Blue: Monster

Division 15 is thrown into a panic when a seemingly drunk man that Gail and Traci brings in collapses from a mysterious illness and everyone is placed under a quarantine. Meanwhile, Andy and Swarek team to apprehend and book an unusual suspect in a brutal bank robbery - a man covered with blue dye. But will they uncover the identity of his violent partner? And as time ticks down, the squad grows increasingly nervous about the quarantine, with Gail worrying about her exposure to the sick man. Also, Dov's first date with a sexy bomb technician ends in a thrilling takedown.

Episode Quotes
Gail: Do I have barf on me?
Traci: You might want to wash your hair.
Gail: I really thought drunk guys puking on me would be over after high school.

Sam: You're snooping around in her desk. You really wanna move on? Get an axe, smash it to pieces.
Andy: No, cause I'm not angry anymore. I was angry last week. Ok? I'm at bargaining now. Which is why I thought if I'd clean out her desk, then I would feel a lot better.
Sam: Well, do you?
Andy: No. No I don't, which makes me feel like I've maybe moved on to depression? With acceptance right around the corner! (smiles)
Sam: You need an axe.

Blue Guy: I like her. She's got spunk.
Andy: Yeah, can I punch him in the face?
Blue Guy: And fire! Lots of fire.
