Sang: No problem. Just rush hour.
Lee: I like to let people talk who like to talk. It lets me find out how full of shit they are.
Carter: What the hell did you just say?
Lee: Ah! Beach Boys.
Carter: Oh, hell no! You didn't just touch my goddamn radio.
Lee: The Beach Boys are great American music.
Carter: The Beach Boys gonna get you a great ass whuppin'. Don't you ever touch a black man's radio, boy! You can do that in China but you can get your ass killed out here, man.
Lee: I didn't know you spoke Chinese.
Carter: I never told you I didn't, you just assumed I didn't.
Captain Diel: Two officers were shot, one man lost a pinkie.
Carter: But didn't nobody die.
Captain Diel: You destroyed half a city block.
Carter: That block was already messed up.
Captain Diel: And you lost a lot of evidence.
Carter: We still got a little bit left.
Carter: We must be... must be a misunderstanding. I was sent down here for the big case. For the kidnapping. The little girl?

Carter: This ain't no Democracy.
Lee: Yes it is.
Carter: No it ain't. This is the United States of James Carter. I'm the President, I'm the Emperor, I'm the King. I'm Michael Jackson, you're Tito. I own yo ass.
Captain Diel: Every now and then we have to let the general public know that we can still blow shit up.
Carter: You're God damn right.
Carter: No disrespect, sir, but he's only gonna get in my way. If I'm gonna handle the situation for you, I'm gonna have to work alone.
Agent Russ: Carter, he is the situation.

Carter: Well he wasn't ever with him. Did Columbo have a partner?
Tania Johnson: Captain Diel ordered me to go with you on that bust because you needed bomb squad back up but once again you screwed me and you screwed yourself.
Agent Whitney: Well as long as we're gonna humiliate someone, might as well be LAPD.
Lee: We can hang in my crib. I will show you my 'hood.

Captain Diel: I'd rather you didn't.
Clive Cod: Let me tell you something, I don't know anything about that, so you can kiss my fat ass.
Carter: Clive, it would take me all day to kiss your fat ass.
