Starsky: Yeah, little touches, ya know, little touches, little details. Ya wanna make the character full, real.

Starsky: Do it.

Starsky: Like you said, Feldman: Everybody deserves a second chance.

Starsky: Yeah.
Hutch: Thank you so much.

Hutch: [waiting outside Huggy's club] What, you've never run an errand on the clock before?

Starsky: I bring a thermos.

Huggy Bear: Hutch, you'll have the usual?
Hutch: You know it and make it a double.
Huggy Bear: Leon, get my a man a jack and tab. And double that.

Hutch: [after seeing the Grand Torino] Whoa! Your stock just went up in my book, my friend. Pop the hood, let me see what you got under...
Starsky: Hey! Hotshot! What do you think you're doing? This is a Ford Grand Torino. It's not some crappy camper slash apartment. There are rules.
Hutch: Okay, okay.
Starsky: You do not bang on the hood. You never under any circumstances drive. And you will certainly not put your coffee mug on the roof of the car. In fact, no coffee in the car whatsoever. Coffee goes on the ground, you get in the car, we go.

Hutch: You gotta be kidding me. No way!
Starsky: What?
Hutch: A floater. Nothing harder to solve than a floater. No prints, body's usually bloated, it's next to impossible. All right, I say we push it out and hope the current pushes it down to the next precinct.
[Hutch tries to push the body away with a stick]
Starsky: Whoa, what are you doing?
Hutch: Trust me, you're gonna thank me for this one.
Starsky: Hey, seriously stop it.
Hutch: The key is not to pop it. You gotta be very ginger.
Starsky: Hey!
[Starsky points a gun at Hutch]
Hutch: What are you doing?
Starsky: I said drop the stick.
Hutch: You're gonna point a gun at me? Okay, fine, have it your way. If it's so important knock yourself out. What are you gonna solve anyway?

Hutch: What do you hear on the street these days, Huggy?
Huggy Bear: Dig this. A little bird tells me there's gonna be a big coke deal in Bay City. One for the Guinness books. So they say.
Starsky: Interesting. Who would this little bird be?
Huggy Bear: Look man. I lay it out for y'all to play it out.
Starsky: All right. What does that mean?
Hutch: Don't worry about it.

Big Earl: [Starsky tries to bribe Big Earl] I'll tell you what, I do like your blonde friend here. Let me see your belly button.
Hutch: No. Let's go.
[hangs up the phone]
Starsky: Hold on a second. The guy's obviously a freak. Just show him a little skin. Show him your stomach. Nobody's here.
Big Earl: Are we cool?
Starsky: Yes, we're cool.
Big Earl: [Hutch shows his stomach] Oh, eureka. God, that's nice. It's like a little bowl of oatmeal with a hole in it. I got one too. I just got a little more brown sugar on mine.

Starsky: Hey, Hutch, I beat that guy. What was that about?
Hutch: Sure you did. You won.
Starsky: You saw.
Hutch: You won. You danced your heart out.
Starsky: And everybody saw it.
Hutch: Shhh. Go to sleep.
Starsky: I was robbed.
Hutch: I know. Go to sleep. Go to sleep, tiny dancer.

Hutch: Do it, Bacardi and cola, do it, do it.
Waitress: Ok? I'll be right back.
Starsky: What are you doing?
Hutch: What?
Starsky: What was that? You just stole my voice.
Hutch: No, I didn't.
Starsky: Yes, you did. You got to come up with your own voice, ok, that's my thing.
Hutch: What am I supposed to do? I don't have a great cool little voice like you do.
Starsky: You come up with your own character. That's why you're the Texas oil tycoon guy...

Huggy Bear: I am an urban informer. I am not a snitch.
Starsky: Come on Huggy, what's the difference?
Huggy Bear: A snitch wears a wire. A snitch is the scum of the information industry.

Kevin: Tonight's second winner: Number 1-1-7.
Monix: Right on! Yeah!
Hutch: Yee-ha! Whoo! Yes! Thank you very much.
Starsky: Sit now. Do it.

Starsky: Do it!
Hutch: The big man has just hit the mother lode! Old Shakes McGinty did it! Yes! Unbelievable!

Hutch: I'm a rich man, and I'm gonna kiss you!

Starsky: Seriously, do it. Do it. Do it.
Reese Feldman: Listen, jackass. You either give me a ticket, or get the hell off this stage, you dig that?
[Starsky point his gun to Reese]
Reese Feldman: Whoa, whoa, whoa, guys.
Starsky: Pop the trunk, Candyman.
Hutch: You heard him. Pop it!
Captain Doby: What the hell are you two doing?
Starsky: Pop IT!

Starsky: A little word of advice: next time you're watching a place, don't claim that you own it just because you're watching it, OK? I house sit for my sister all the time; it's not like I claim that I own her house, ya know what I mean?

David Starsky: I like your Lincoln.
Huggy Bear: It's a '76. Won't be out 'til next year. But I know some people that know some people that robbed some people.

Hutch: [pointing at Starsky] I like your style.
David Starsky: [pointing at Hutch] I like your moves.

Starsky: Wrong answer, Big Earl.
Bartender: Big Earl? I'm not Big Earl, I'm Jeff.
Hutch: Yeah, sure, no-one's who they say they are.
Bartender: Seriously. Think about it, I'm not even big.
Hutch: Yeah, he's got a point.
Starsky: Maybe it's one of those ironic names like Tiny over in vice. He's like eight feet tall and everyone calls him Tiny.
Hutch: Except this guy's kind of normal size, he'd have to be a lot smaller for a name like Big Earl to be ironic.
Starsky: You don't have to be a midget, how tall are you?
Bartender: I don't know, 5'9"?
Starsky: Well that is kind of?
Hutch: It's borderline, it's average.

Starsky: That's me in the leather jacket and tight jeans.

Starsky: Come on cap, don't drag Hutch into this. I shot the pony.

Hutch: Willis, I'd like you to meet my new partner, David Starsky.
Starsky: Hi Willis.
Willis: [to Hutch] Is this the dickweed you were telling me about?
Hutch: Just shake his hand.

Hutch: Hey Reese, this is a nice boat, is it yours?
Reese Feldman: Actually, that's a yacht.
Hutch: Oh, I'm sorry, a yacht.
Starsky: Hutch, can we please focus on the investigation?

Hutch: [Reading Starsky's report on him] "cavorting with nefarious characters". "conduct unbecoming an officer".
Starsky: Come on. I wrote that thing two weeks ago, things are totally cool with us now.
Hutch: Did you go through my locker?
Starsky: No.
Hutch: You went through my locker.
Starsky: I mean, I may have looked through it while it was open but...
Hutch: If you've got a problem with someone you tell it to their face, you come to them as a man. You don't go behind their back, write a thesis and try to get transferred to another precinct.

David Starsky: [afteraccidentally shooting a horse] Hey there little fella. You okay?

Starsky: This is a bad man. And this is what bad men do.
Elizabeth: A pony?
Reese Feldman: Happy bat Mitzvah baby, I love you.
Starsky: Hey there, little fella. You OK?

Captain Doby: I believe you two know each other?
Starsky: Yeah, a little bit.
Hutch: How you doing?
Starsky: All right.

Starsky: It's 10 o'clock, you're late; I've been here since 8.
Hutch: 8 o'clock? I didn't even know this place opened at 8.
Starsky: Well, don't sweat it, 'cause ya know what? Crime called in sick, it's gonna get a late start too.
Hutch: Crime called in sick, I like that...

Starsky: Biker bar, huh? What goes on down there?
Huggy Bear: I don't know. Listen to Jim Croce, play darts... whatever the hell else you white people do.

[Starsky and Hutch are in the Captain's office]
Captain Doby: You've robbed 7 bookies over the past 6 months. You haven't filed a report, turned in any money; you haven't even arrested anybody.
Hutch: How can I arrest them? They'll know I'm a cop.
Starsky: Oh, I wouldn't worry. I don't think you're in any danger for being mistaken for a real cop.
Hutch: Oh really? Hey, why don't you do me a favor and go get yourself another perm and let the grown-ups talk.
Starsky: For your information, my hair is naturally curly.
Hutch: No it's not.
Starsky: Yes it is.
Hutch: That's a perm job all the way.
Starsky: TOUCH IT.
[Hutch touches Starsky's hair]
Captain Doby: Hey. Why are you touching him? Jesus. You know something? You two deserve each other. Make nice. You two are partners.

Starsky: Make him stop. Make him stop. Tell him to stop. Stop it.
Chau: [in Korean] Throw more knives... ALL THE TIME.
Toby: [in Korean] Yes father, I shall throw many.

Starsky: I am not my MOTHER.

Starsky: Sit on it, Manetti.

Hutch: Are you crying?
Starsky: Hmm?
Hutch: Are you crying?
Starsky: [hesitating] Am I crying? I'm not crying. *You* are.
Hutch: It's okay to cry. People cry.
Starsky: [still hesitating] Well, I'm not like many people. I'm not a crier, I don't cry, I work out. I have a job, I have hobbies...

Starsky: [Feldman has a gun pointed at Hutch] Your nuts are mine Feldman, your nuts are mine.
Hutch: No they're not.
[to Feldman]
Hutch: Your nuts are yours, your nuts are yours.

Starsky: Body of a caucasian male, apparently jumped from the Bay Street Bridge...
Hutch: Well, actually there's no sign of impact so he was probably just dumped out at sea.
Starsky: Would you please not talk while I'm recording?
