List of The Thin Blue Line quotes.

Inspector Raymond C. Fowler: The artful dodger was a thief. And I don't think he'd have considered himself quite so "at home" in a juvenile detention center, which is where I'd have put him. Thieving is thieving and no amount of oom-pa-pa or boom-titty-titty will change that.

Const. Frank Gladstone: We gave our dog a bad name... Colin. Terrible name! You have no idea how many people are called Colin. We'd go to the park - I'd shout, "Come here, Colin!", and fifteen people would turn around. Big people too, sir. I mean for some reason all the big lads get called Colin. I mean - I'd shout, "Colin, you're a bad boy! I just saw you do a caca. And now, I'm going to rub your nose in it." The next thing I knew, I wake up in an ambulance.

Inspector Raymond C. Fowler: Start stringing words together willy-nilly and it can lead to no end of confusion. Constable Kray let me have your notebook.
(Takes notebook and starts to read)
Inspector Raymond C. Fowler: . Look here. "The criminal ran round my side and out the back at a colossal lick". Jumble up the words and suddenly you have "The criminal licked out my colossal round backside and ran."
