Quotes

[Bodie and Doyle collected Cowley's valuable antique desk but it fell off the roof-rack of their car as they were chasing Coleman and Angadi]

McCabe: It's the talk of the department, sir.
George Cowley: Battered beyond recognition... minus its drawers.
McCabe: Nasty. On that evidence I'm surprised you don't charge them with rape!
