Fun Stuff

From "Hill Street Blues: I Never Promised You a Rose, Marvin (#1.12)" (1981)
Sgt. Phil Esterhaus: Your uncustomary silence testifies amply to the esteem in which we hold the subject of this last item. Now we all know who's in here.
[points to a green urn]
Sgt. Phil Esterhaus: To most people this would seem just a common urn, but we know it holds one of the premier phone installers of the country: Officer Marvin Oliver Box, or simply Marve, as we knew him. Born, 16 May, 1946, deceased, just last Tuesday, in this very room, with uniform on, and drillbit in hand. Marve must have known that he would be leaving us soon, because we found a small poem in his will, which we've had inscribed on this, this vessel here.
