Jules: Are we still on “Grease”?

Gus: I can’t believe this, Shawn. First, we’re looking for a prostitute, now I’m naked in a parking lot.
Shawn: It’s just like our prom night.
Shawn: Gus, relax. Don’t be Nick Cage’s accent from “Con Air.” We’ve bathed together before.
Gus: When we were three.

Shawn: Some chick got hit in the head with a tennis trophy – you know what, screw that case…
Shawn: I looked at my partner, it was like looking at a child lost in a shopping mall. Luckily, I’d solved the case. The football players were protecting their bonuses and that is why they left the disembodied foot on the path in the forest.
Gus: That’s not why they did it.
Shawn: Yeah, well that one still confuses me. The point is, that is but twenty of my many, many cases that I have solved. You can read the book when I learn how to type.

Shawn: Sir, the fact that you haven’t left tells me you’re not afraid of my gift and are ready to use it to catch this shark. Think we have ourselves a boat.
Shawn: Are we gonna get to sing sea shanties, or any other kind of shanties? Do you have Dramamine, or should I just bring my own? Oh, Gus wants to know if you have cable on your boat ’cause it’s the season finale of “Leverage” and his TiVo is on the fritz.
William Tanner: You’re job is to shut up.

Shawn: Says you.
Gus: Says the definition of shut up.
William Tanner: Guster, get the dynamite

Henry: See you later, alligator
