Shad: You talk to her?

Erin Grant: Darrell's phone's disconnected. I think he moved again.

Shad: You know, I'd embrace the opportunity to maim his white ass up.

Erin Grant: I know you would, and that's really thoughtful, but I don't think it would help my case in court if I had him attacked.

Erin Grant: [Shad has just put a roach in a container of yogurt] So, this is the new brainstorm, huh?

Shad: Accordin' to the Wall St. Journal we got here the hottest selling yogurt in the country. I bring this in, say my hair fell out from the shock. BOOM! They pay off big time. My lawyer thinks it's a genius idea.

Erin Grant: Your lawyer has an office over a video store.

Shad: Call me a dreamer. I don't wanna be a bouncer forever.

Darrell Grant: Is that ever the wrong answer. Now you bring her to me right now!

Erin Grant: I am not bringing her to you anywere in this lifetime.

Darrell Grant: Well, then I guess I'll just have to go to that nice old judge and tell him my whore of a wife has abducted...

Erin Grant: Well, guess what, Darell? The judge is dead! So if you want Angela, then you're just going to have to kill me. Go on!

Malcolm Moldowsky: This is a major disaster! Major! Unbelievable! Without doubt, the most ludicrous piece of human behavior...

Congressman David Dilbeck: It's never gonna happen again, Malcolm. I've got it under control. See, I just love naked women. It's a character flaw. And God's testing me now...

Malcolm Moldowsky: Oh, will you shut up, you idiot!

Congressman David Dilbeck: You can't talk to me like that. I'm a United States Congressman!

Malcolm Moldowsky: I can't? When you go psycho in a girlie bar six weeks before the election, what should I call you? Winston Freaking Churchill? It was all I could do to keep Willie Rojo from coming in here and strangling you with his bare, freaking hands!

Congressman David Dilbeck: Everybody has a bad night, especially if they're under the pressure, like we are, under the public eye of...! Who recognized me?

Malcolm Moldowsky: His name is Jerry Killian. And he's waiting outside.

Congressman David Dilbeck: Now?

Malcolm Moldowsky: Now! We gotta move on this thing before we get eaten alive!

Congressman David Dilbeck: Move on what? I mean, if this is a shakedown, just get Willie to pay him like he always does. Why drag me into it...?

Malcolm Moldowsky: Because... it's not about money.

Congressman David Dilbeck: It's not?

Malcolm Moldowsky: No. He wants you to persuade Judge Fingerhut to reverse a child custody case, of some stripper.

Congressman David Dilbeck: Who he's sleeping with? You know, this is disgraceful! This is disgraceful, to have a man, like me, who has to deal with...!

Malcolm Moldowsky: He's not sleeping with her.

Congressman David Dilbeck: [stops, uncomprehending] Well, then why... why does her care?

Malcolm Moldowsky: Because he's nuts! That's why he's dangerous! I mean, if he was sleeping with her, then I could deal with him, man-to-man, but this is... this is fruitcake love here.

[Orly hires Lorelei and her trained python away from the Flesh Farm, only they send the snake's dead body]

Orly: Here, go rustle up a new snake.

Shad: Where, the AM/PM? Who the fuck carries pythons at ten o'clock at night?

Orly: There's an all-night snake farm on Route 27. Ask for Jungle Juan. And get rid of that thing! God, I hate this business! You know why? It's lost its humanity.

Lt. Al Garcia: [in the morgue] Now here comes that brilliant and charming attorney of yours, Mr. Mordecai. Found him 400 yards offshore. Now show him the rest of his kisser.

Medical Examiner: [uncovers Mordecai's face] Crabs find lawyers a particular delicacy, yeah.

Shad: Looks like lasagna. Cover that shit up.

Lt. Al Garcia: You mind telling me why your name was on his calendar for tomorrow?

Shad: I was involved in a litigation with a yogurt company.

Lt. Al Garcia: Just based on my limited experience, this doesn't look like the sort of thing a yogurt company would ordinarily do. You know, I hear this prick represented the same poor kid who got mauled at your club. Now that I find fascinating, Shad!

Shad: He had a picture...

[retching]

Shad: Man, I'm gonna lose it!

[the coroner starts to cover Mordecai's face, Garcia stops him]

Lt. Al Garcia: A picture of what? A certain legislator?

Shad: Yeah... beatin' the kid's ass.

Lt. Al Garcia: And where's the original?

Shad: I got no idea.

[the coroner covers up Mordecai, Garcia hands Shad a box of mints]

Lt. Al Garcia: Here, freshen up. Thanks.

Medical Examiner: Can I interest you in dessert?

Lt. Al Garcia: No, just the check.

[the coroner laughs and wheels Mordecai away]

Lt. Al Garcia: [about Erin] Dilbeck didn't invite her back?

Shad: She said no.

Lt. Al Garcia: Well, that's good. Because I don't think she should go back there, even with you. And what was with her tonight? She seemed edgy.

Shad: She got her moods, man. Could be that time of the month.

Lt. Al Garcia: So now you're the gynecologist-bouncer, bouncer-gynecologist?

Shad: Hey! I just watch out for the girls.

Lt. Al Garcia: Wow... so do I. That makes a grand total of two people in the entire state of Florida. Because the higher-ups in my department, they're not exactly pushing this investigation. Is any of this making sense to you?

Shad: Because of this asshole Congressman.

Lt. Al Garcia: Bingo! We've got two homicides here, and nobody gives a shit except you and me. And I'm worried about that girl. She's all alone out there.

Lt. Al Garcia: [re: Angela] Why don't you drop her off at our house?

Erin Grant: I can't do that.

Lt. Al Garcia: Why not? I told Donna everything. Your whole situation. She said if you needed a hand she'd love to help.

Erin Grant: She doesn't think I'm something out of "A Current Affair"?

Lt. Al Garcia: Erin, come on, you're a terrific girl. You know that, right? So you made a mistake a lot of terrific girls make, you married a bum. What are you gonna do? You gonna beat yourself up for the rest of your life?
