Episode Quotes

Charles: Hey, what's up? I can't work the case tonight. Nikolaj's allergies are acting up, and now the dog seems to be allergic to him. It's this whole thing.

Charles: Did you find Smith?
Jake: No, uh, he actually got away.
Charles: Sorry, man.
Jake: Ah, it's all right. It's the day shift's problem now.
Charles: Whatever happened to working until it's done?
Jake: Honestly, Lohank kind of talked some sense into me.
Charles: Lohank?
Jake: Yeah, it was so gross.

Jake: But I want to apologize.
Charles: For what?
Jake: Well, I kept talking about how I wanted everything to go back to normal, but if that actually happened, this little guy wouldn't be here. Or is he big? I don't know what size kids are supposed to be, or anything about kids, really.
I think maybe that's part of the problem. It doesn't matter. I got a present for Nikolaj.

Charles: Oh, my God, this is a dream come true. I gotta get my phone I gotta film this. Oh, but then I'll miss it. Oh, but I want it forever. Agh, but I should stay in the moment. Ah, but then I'll forget. Oh, my God, this is a nightmare.

Jake: So what's this secret meeting all about? You guys know I'm not medically cleared for another week.
Gina: It's not a secret meeting, Jake. It's an intervention.
Rosa: The tips have to go.
Jake: What? Why?
Gina: Jake, we're worried about you, and you look very stupid.
