Fun Stuff

From "Homicide: Life on the Street: A Shot in the Dark (#1.4)" (1993)
Stanley 'The Big Man' Bolander: You got two things right, you got a drug deal and a shootout, but not between those two guys! Lowe is lying wounded on the floor, and Cole is lying dead on top of him on his back!
John Munch: ...They shoot each other!
[holds out his finger, mimicking a gun]
John Munch: BANG! BANG! Cole gets shot in the chest,
[places his hand over his heart]
John Munch: then he spins around,
[spins backward dramatically]
John Munch: falls over on Lowe!
[pretends to faint onto Bolander, who shoves him forward]
Stanley 'The Big Man' Bolander: Okay, where's Cole's gun? We only recovered ONE gun!
