Near the beginning of the film we see Starsky and Hutch about to get into their car in a very busy street, they themselves are virtually surrounded by onlookers, but as they get into the car and drive off the street is deserted. See more

There's something you oughtta know about Starsky and me. We're not like most partners. Y'know, usually there's the one guy who's kinda folksy. Kind that wants the best for everybody. The Pat O'Brien kind of guy. And then there's the other guy, the rough 'em up, hardnosed kind of guy. Well, that doesn't work for Starsky and me. See, we're both hardnosed, Rollie. And we don't like it when people don't give us everything we want.
