Quotes

Waiter: Telephone call, commissioner.

Commissioner Anabell Brumford: Thank you.

[picks up phone]

Commissioner Anabell Brumford: Hello?... He did what?... How many animals escaped?... Oh, my God...

Lt. Frank Drebin: Good evening, commissioner. You're looking lovely tonight.

Commissioner Anabell Brumford: Do you realize that because of you this city is being overrun by baboons?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?

[Frank walks away, leaving Commissioner Brumford with an astonished face]

Terence Baggett: [sniffs] What's that smell?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Oh, that would be me. I've been swimming in raw sewage. I love it!

Lt. Frank Drebin: Miss, I'm Lt. Frank Drebin, and this is Captain Ed Hocken, Police Squad.

Busty Female Shop Assistant: Is this some kind of bust?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Well... it's very impressive, yes, but we need to ask you a few questions.

Lt. Frank Drebin: That's the red-light district. I wonder why Savage is hanging around down there.

Captain Ed Hocken: Sex, Frank?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Uh, no, not right now, Ed.

Lt. Frank Drebin: Now, Jane, what can you tell us about the man you saw last night?

Jane Spencer: He's Caucasian.

Ed Hocken: Caucasian?

Jane Spencer: Yeah, you know, a white guy. A moustache. About six-foot-three.

Lt. Frank Drebin: Awfully big moustache.

Quentin Hapsburg: Que sera sera... You do speak French, don't you?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Unfortunately no, but I do kiss that way.

[Lt. Frank Drebin is unhappy about Dr. Mainheimer]

Lt. Frank Drebin: Have you noticed anything different about him?

Jane Spencer: Well, only that he's a foot taller, and he seems to be left handed now... Frank, what are you trying to tell me? That Quentin has somehow found an exact double for Dr. Mainheimer and that tomorrow that double will give a fraudulent report to the president?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Why that's brilliant, that's a lot better than what I came up with.

[Lt. Frank Drebin and Ed Hocken are in a sex shop making inquiries]

Lt. Frank Drebin: We're looking for Hector Savage. Where is he?

Busty Female Shop Assistant: Why should I tell you, copper?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Because I'm the last line of defense between sleaze like this and the decent people of this town.

[a male shop assistant walks in from a back storeroom]

Sex Shop Assistant: Oh, hi, Frank. Say, we finally got that model D83 Swedish sure-grip suck machine that you ordered.

Lt. Frank Drebin: [to the Female Assistant; embarassed] It's a gift.

Lt. Frank Drebin: Oh, it's all right. I'm sure that we can handle this situation maturely, just like the responsible adults that we are. Isn't that right, Mr... Poopy Pants?

[at a bar]

Jane Spencer: Sam, would you play our song, just one more time?

Sam: Of course... DING DONG! The witch is dead! Which old witch? The wicked witch!

Lt. Frank Drebin: I'm single! I love being single! I haven't had this much sex since I was a Boy Scout leader!

[Music stops playing. Everyone stops talking and stares at him]

Lt. Frank Drebin: [to everybody] I mean at the time I was dating a lot.

Lt. Frank Drebin: [describing Jane; voice-over] I couldn't believe it was her. It was like a dream. But there she was, just as I remembered her. That delicately beautiful face. And a body that could melt a cheese sandwich from across the room. And breasts that seemed to say... "Hey! Look at these!" She was the kind of woman who made you want to drop to your knees and thank God you were a man! She reminded me of my mother, all right. No doubt about it.

Ed Hocken: Frank, snap out of it! You're looking at her like she was your mother for Christ's sake!

Lt. Frank Drebin: Looks like the cows have come home to roost.

Lt. Frank Drebin: This is Frank Drebin, Police Squad. Throw down your guns, and come on out with your hands up. Or come on out, then throw down your guns, whichever way you wanna do it. Just remember the two key elements here: one, guns to be thrown down; two, come on out!

Banquet Doorman: Your coat, sir?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Yes, it is. And I have a receipt to prove it.

Quentin Hapsburg: I don't recall your name on the guest list.

Lt. Frank Drebin: That's OK. I sometimes go by my maiden name.

[Frank meets Jane after a long time]

Lt. Frank Drebin: How are the children?

Jane Spencer: We didn't have any children.

Lt. Frank Drebin: Yes, of course.

Jane Spencer: How was your prostate operation?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Oh, good. Fine. Never been better.

Lt. Frank Drebin: You know, sometimes I envy you and Edna. You have the same person every day for over 30 years. You wake up, eat with her, sleep with her. Make love to the same woman.

[Ed looks increasingly disgusted as Frank goes on]

Lt. Frank Drebin: You spend every possible waking moment together, while I'm out running around with a bunch of 20-year-olds who only want a good time and cheap sex sex sex. Girls who can't say no. Girls who can't get enough. "More, more, more. It's your turn now to wear the handcuffs... "

[Ed starts foaming at the mouth... literally]

Lt. Frank Drebin: I just want love, Ed.

Ed Hocken: I'm sure you'll... find love, Frank.

Dr. Mainheimer: [the entire audience is asleep] Now, to elaborate on point 102...

Ed Hocken: [hands him a book called "Strokin' The Love Muffin"] Here! Read this, it's an emergency.

Dr. Mainheimer: [starts reading] "His strong manly hands probed every crevice of her silken femininity, their undulating bodies writhing in sensual rhythm, as he thrust his purple-headed warrior into her quivering mound of love pudding."

[audience slowly wakes up]

Nordberg: All right, listen up everyone! I want you to calmly file towards the exits. That's it, that's it! Nobody runs, just walk. Single file. That's it. Now if we just stay calm, no one's gonna be harmed by the huge bomb that's gonna explode any minute.

[audience panics and runs everywhere]

Waiter: Sir?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Gimme the strongest thing you got.

[Waiter brings over a greased-up muscle man. Drebin flounders]

Lt. Frank Drebin: Uh... on second thought, how about a black Russian?

Waiter: Very well sir.

[raises eyebrow, looks at camera, shakes head and walks off]

Dr. Mainheimer: It's a terrible thing that's happened here, Lieutenant. I do hope you will find the people responsible.

Lt. Frank Drebin: I'm sorry I can't be more optimistic, Doctor, but we've got a long road ahead of us. It's like having sex. It's a painstaking and arduous task that seems to go on and on forever, and just when you think things are going your way, nothing happens.

Lt. Frank Drebin: Hector Savage. From Detroit. Ex-boxer. His real name was Joey Chicago.

Ed Hocken: Oh, yeah. He fought under the name of Kid Minneapolis.

Nordberg: I saw Kid Minneapolis fight once. In Cincinnati.

Lt. Frank Drebin: No you're thinking of Kid New York. He fought out of Philly.

Ed Hocken: He was killed in the ring in Houston. By Tex Colorado. You know, the Arizona Assassin.

Nordberg: Yeah, from Dakota. I don't remember it was North or South.

Lt. Frank Drebin: North. South Dakota was his brother. From West Virginia.

Ed Hocken: You sure know your boxing.

Lt. Frank Drebin: All I know is never bet on the white guy.

[Nordberg nods in agreement]

Lt. Frank Drebin: Real nice party, Hapsburg... I see a lot of familiar face-lifts.

Ed Hocken: [as Savage is surrounded] All right, Savage! What do you want?

Hector Savage: I want a car out front! Something fun. A Porsche! Then I want a plane ticket to Jamaica. And I want a nice hotel. No touristy place. Something really indicative of the people and their culture.

Ed Hocken: Can't do that, Savage! We're calling your bluff! Now put your hands on top of your head and come out!

[Frank makes a speech at the White House]

Lt. Frank Drebin: I want a world where Frank Junior and all the Frank Juniors can sit under a shade tree, breathe the air, swim in the ocean, and go into a 7-Eleven without an interpreter. I want a world where I can eat a sea otter without getting sick! I want a world where the democrats will put somebody up there worth voting for! I may not get there with you, but most of all, I want a world where I can wake up each morning with this woman, whom I love!

Lt. Frank Drebin: Go ahead, threaten me like you have the American people for so long! You're part of a dying breed, Hapsburg, like people who can name all fifty states! The truth hurts, doesn't it, Hapsburg? Oh sure, maybe not as much as landing on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts!

[after the explosion, Frank sees two bodies on the verge of death; he confronts one]

Lt. Frank Drebin: All right. Where is Hapsburg?

Explosion Thug #1: [groans in pain]

Lt. Frank Drebin: Where were you hit?

Explosion Thug #1: It's not that. You're on my groin!

Lt. Frank Drebin: [gets off] Oh. Sorry. All right, now! Where is he?

Explosion Thug #1: You're too late. Hapsburg has plan "B" in... In... In...

Explosion Thug #2: Where did he leave off?

Lt. Frank Drebin: Uh, "Hapsburg has plan "B" in...".

Explosion Thug #2: Oh, yeah. Hapsburg has plan "B" in... In...

Lt. Frank Drebin: Where? Where? Talk, you low-life scum!

Explosion Thug #2: Gee. If that's your attitude, forget it!

[he chokes and dies]
