Episode Quotes
McNeil: (driving aggressively) Is the entire city suddenly drinking retard juice?

McNeil: (to bicycle cop) I'm gonna reach down here, just a second - hang on. I'm gonna show you something. (flashes his badge) 21st Precinct. (looks down) And your balls are hanging out. What am I saying? You're a bike cop.... you don't have those! Buh-Bye.

Pip: (watching McNeil pop a few pills from an Altoid tin) You need to lighten up on the mints, Elvis.
McNeil: (sarcastically) Okay, Mom.
Pip: Why you still taking those things, huh? I ain't no doctor, but I hear before you take painkillers, you're actually supposed to have this thing called 'pain.'
McNeil: I have pain.
Pip: Where?
McNeil: Well, there's the one in my ass. That would be you.

Tommy: Did you eat my muffin?
Frank: I eat a lot things during the course of a day, Tom. If you'd like me to keep track, that's fine, but it'd be very labor intensive.

Cultural References
McNeil: (ruffling his thinning hair) In the next couple of weeks, I'm gonna be Ben Kingsley.
