Episode Quotes
Sousa: I want this Sledge Hammer for the rest of his life to be dead!

Hammer: Wow. Morning edition is a little thick today, isn’t it, Fred?
Fred: That’s because they’ve gone and made 62 new horoscope signs.

Trunk: I understand you’re a marked man. Word on the street is there’s already been an attempt on your life.
Hammer: Ooh, color me frightened. Did they succeed?

Jacob: I be Jacob, and this be my daughter, Isadora.
Hammer: Well, I’m Inspector Hammer and this be my gun.

Doreau: Sledge, where in the world are you? Captain Trunk thought the worst happened to you.
Hammer: Why’d he think the worst?
Doreau: He said, uh, “optimism.”

Isadora: I’ve never been with a man before. In that way.
Hammer: Neither have I.

Hammer: I thought violence was against your way of life.
Jacob: Hey. This is the ‘80s.

Isadora: Will I ever see you again?
Hammer: Only if you make the Ten Most Wanted List. Kind of unlikely.

Jacob: Go with God, Sledge Hammer.
Hammer: Obey the penal codes.



Cultural References
