Episode Quotes
Officer Charlie Donagon:: [to Tom Hanson] I didn't recognize you without the bandage across your partner's nose.

Off. Tom Hanson : This is Jump Street Chapel, right?
Off. Doug Penhall: Only if you're Catholic. Ioki, here, thinks it's a Buddhist temple. Me? I think it's a synagogue. You know, my mom's Jewish, which only means I get to celebrate both guilt and hell.
Officer Harry Truman Ioki: Yeah, you see, his father used to be a priest, so don't play bingo with this guy. He's a killer.
