Episode Quotes

Kling: Rarin' to go.

Carella: (to Nancy) You're a real tiger, aren't you?

Nancy: (about Andrew) I just know everytime he touches me he makes my skin crawl.

Andrew: People are all alike. They're like sheep. They only like the popular ones. You don't fit the mold, you're on the outside.

Mrs. Mason: Chicks. Flip. Whatever happened to the English language I learned?
Andrew: It went out with high button shoes.

Andrew: (to Kling) What's so great about living? It's all a drag.

Andrew: Anymore questions, Lieutenant?
Carella: No more questions. I'm not a lieutenant.

Andrew: (to Carella) I was just wondering how long it was gonna take for you to get around to me.



Analysis
Just call this one the Dennis Hopper episode. By the time Hopper appeared on 87th Precinct he could probably portray mentally unstable young men in his sleep.
