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

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?
Starsky: A murder. I'm gonna solve a murder.

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.

Starsky: I was robbed.
Hutch: I know. Go to sleep. Go to sleep, tiny dancer.

Hutch: Lighten up! It's Friday night. Okay, it's a bar.
Huggy Bear: Hutch, it's Wednesday afternoon man. Snap out of it.

Waitress: Hi, can I get you two a drink?
Starsky: You sure can sweetheart. Johnnie Red neat, ok, do it, Do It.
Waitress: Alright, and you?
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...

Hutch: We owe you one Huggy.
Huggy Bear: No, you're gonna owe me more than one, man.
Hutch: Well, let's slow down with the score keeping, I may have to start remembering some of the things I've overlooked in the past and mention them to my partner. How'd that be?

Starsky: Pop the trunk, Candyman.
Hutch: You heard him. Pop it!
Captain Doby: What the hell are you two doing?
Starsky: Pop IT!

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.

Hutch: I've always had this theory about police work. If you can't beat 'em? join 'em! Besides, a lot of cops worry about the wrong thing - crime. Not me though. I'm looking out for numero uno.

Hutch: Hey, there he is.
Willis: How's life at the clink treating you?
Hutch: Not great. I got this new tight-assed partner they stuck me with, but hopefully it won't last too long.
Willis: So, you got that $20 you owe me?
Hutch: 20? Willis, I thought it was 5!
Willis: Hutch, that was my grandmother's birthday money.
Hutch: Come on, ease up, I just told you things aren't going great for me down at the precinct, you know, just back off a little. Can I get it to you on Thursday?
Willis: No later than Thursday.
Hutch: No later than Thursday.

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: [drunk in Huggy's bar, talking to another customer] Ruin me! He didn't care if he got ruined, that was the whole point of the episode.

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.

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 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.

Hutch: [ducking] That ain't a kid, it's a tiny little man... And he's got knives. Goddamn.

[Huggy is trying to convince Hutch to forgive Starsky]
Huggy Bear: Dig this man. Someone once said: "To err is human, to forgive divine."
Hutch: Tch. What idiot said that?
Huggy Bear: I believe that was God - the greatest mack of all.

[last lines]
David Starsky: I'm just gonna take it slow for a while, get the feel of it.
Ken Hutchinson: No, no, that's smart. Do that.
[Starsky accelerates]
Ken Hutchinson: Starsky.
David Starsky: Hang on.
Ken Hutchinson: No. No.
David Starsky: Hang on. Woo.

[undercover as bikers]
Hutch: Hey, how you doing? I'm Kansas and this is my little man, Toto.
[points to Starsky]

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...

Hutch: Go to sleep tiny dancer.

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?

Hutch: BACKSTABBER! Yeah, don't ever work with David Starsky. He'll STABB YOU AT THE BACK!

Starsky: Hutch, let's roll.
