DCI Jack Meadows: Make a change from stabbing it!
DI Neil Manson: [Jack relents and scratches Neil's back] Down a bit...

DI Neil Manson: I can't believe this! I cannot believe this! I knew this was going to be a bad day, I knew it! The moment that Jo Masters walked in the building, I knew something was gonna kick off!

"The Bill: 259 (#20.79)" (2004)
DI Neil Manson: What's this...? You're telling me you want to resign?
DS Debbie McAllister: With immediate effect.
DI Neil Manson: Is this about what happened with your son? Cos' you finally realised you can't hack the job aswell as being a single mother?
DS Debbie McAllister: You'd love to think that wouldn't you? Well you'd be wrong.
DI Neil Manson: Well surprise me... Why would you wanna give up a career and a police pension after the biggest result you've ever had?
DS Debbie McAllister: Which means I've got nothing else to prove. You see, thats the difference between you and me. All you think about is what's here, in this office. And a big fat pension at the end of it. Well I want more than that, I wanna go out there and see what else I can be.
DI Neil Manson: Pipe dreams Debbie. Do you really think I haven't felt like that from time to time, eh? Fed up, wanting to chuck it all in.
DS Debbie McAllister: Atleast I've got the guts to go out there and do something about it. Whereas you just sit there with your files and your clear-up rates. No real family life. Feeling nothing except what this job gives you.
DI Neil Manson: Is that it?
DS Debbie McAllister: No, it's not actually. The way you're always sniping and trying to undermine the DCI, you're like some angry little gerbil nipping at a bull dog. Truth is, Jack's twice the man you are, and four times the copper. Think about that; when your counting your paperclips...

DI Neil Manson: Absolutely.
Supt. Adam Okaro: [Back In Office] They're good officers... but... they're so busy bickering with each other at the moment that they've become distracted. Which is where you come in, do you think you're up to telling our DCI and DI a few home truths?
DC Jo Masters: Up to it? Oh I'm looking forward to it.
Supt. Adam Okaro: It's a strong CID team, but with them at each other's throats at the moment, well the holes are starting to appear. It's your job to show them where they're going wrong. I want you on their case Jo, morning, noon and night.
