* AnAesop: Just because corporations can get away with rampant greed legally doesn't make it okay. Also, being a real cop doesn't mean you get to act like a rouge CowboyCop.

-->'''Terry''': If we were in the wild, I would attack you. Even if you weren't in my food chain, I would go out of my way to attack you. If I were a lion and you were a tuna, I would swim out in the middle of the ocean and freakin' eat you! And then I'd bang your tuna girlfriend.\\

** Two of the other cops convince Gamble to do a "desk pop", firing your gun in your desk. A dumb thing to do under most circumstances, even more so in a crowded police station.

%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Both Hoitz and Gamble are cops who are interested in upholding the law, but they're both kind of assholes. Hoitz has a short temper and is prone to snapping at people, while Gamble is emotionally abusive to his wife.

* NWordPrivileges: (on 'tips for staying out of jail') "One: Try your hardest not to be black or Hispanic." Would they have given that line to a white guy? Well, maybe, but it's certainly less offensive for the placement.
** Plus, well, it's funnier coming from the black guy, who's talking to a grade school class, showing off about being a successful cop.
