Episode Quotes
Quon Le: How can anyone relax at a time like this?
Dan: Well, one sure way involves a pound of Velveeta and a copy of True Detective magazine.

Christine: Boy, this place sure has changed since Mac left.
Roz: Yeah. It's the first time in my life I ever had paper cuts on my ankles.

Mac: (behind Dan, patting him on the shoulder) Fielding!
Dan: (jumping) Your wife's lying! I don't even own a saddle!

Roz: (opening present from Mac) I get to see Mike Tyson at Madison Square Garden?
Quon Le: No, you get to fight Mike Tyson at Madison Square Garden.
Mac: We got him to give you a three-round exhibition match.
Roz: Aw, this is the loveliest, sweetest, most thoughtful....(kisses Mac's cheek) I'll rip his freaking head off.

Episode Goofs
Eddie: Well, I-I kinda put her on the wrong bus.
Harry: You sent Mrs. Turley to death row?

New York does not have the death penalty, a fact that was pointed out in numerous previous episodes.

Eddie: Sign this.
Harry: What is it?
Eddie: It's a stay of execution.

In addition to the previously-mentioned goof about New York not having the death penalty, arraignment court judges cannot issue stays of execution.
