Episode Quotes
Jeff: I don't think it's a good idea either of you be on this case. (to Rachel) They almost killed you.
Rachel: I haven't forgotten.
Frank: She hasn't you know. Everytime we go out on a job, she tries to get into the boot!

Frank: What a fruitloop.
Rachel: Now Francis, don't make fun of things you don't understand.

Rachel: Would you settle? Surveillance is all about patience, about being inconspicuous. You're playing on my nerves.
(a bit later when something happens)
Frank: Surveillance is also about being on the ball!
(Rachel rolls her eyes)

Frank: There's always the possibility that I'll go home and find Ursula naked in my bed. Of course, it's an improbability but a bloke can dream.
Doug Harvey: Too tall for you, Frank.
Rachel: Oh, he adds a few inches when he dreams.
Doug Harvey: (chuckles, while Frank smiles) Yeah, don't we all?

Rachel: You would've shot David Lapinski if I hadn't turned up today, wouldn't you?
Frank: That's a strong possibility, yeah.
Rachel: Doesn't that bother you?
Frank: At the time it didn't.
Rachel: Well, I hope it wasn't for my benefit, because I'm your partner, not your girlfriend.
Frank: Yeah, I know that.
Rachel: Yeah. Well that's not how you're acting.
Frank: How am I acting?
Rachel: (pauses) Listen Frank. I think we had our moment, and I think we missed it.
Frank: Did we?
Rachel: Yeah, we did. Maybe it's better that way.
