What happened to part 1? Decided to not post it yet. But this one is dedicated to 21 Jump Street.

Season 1:

21 Jump Street

Hanson’s latest partner (to Hanson): With these things, you just have to take it as it is. If life throws me a lemon, I’ll just make a martini.

Doug: They’re running?
Hanson nodding: They’re running!

Gotta Finish the Riff

Captain Fuller: Hoffs and Hanson!
Judy: We’re up.
Doug (to Hanson): There’s one thing I want you to remember, okay? That guy in there is a human being–your boss, a captain, a superior officer, a professional policeman like yourself–who can make our lives miserable, if he gets teed off.
Hanson: I’m getting behavioral advice from you?
Doug: Take it.
(After Hanson walks into Fuller’s office already)
Doug (sees a guy walking by with something in his hand): Hey, hey, hey, hey! Where’d you get that?
Guy: I found it!
Doug: Yeah, you found it! You found it in my desk is where you found it! You go in my stuff again, Ace, I’m gonna twist your head off.
Guy: Yeah?
Doug: Yeah. I’m serious.
Guy: I can tell.
Doug: What planet did you drop in from, man? This is my house! I live here!
Guy: Yeah? Well, we’re roommates now, Ace.

Hanson: Captain Fuller, I don’t want you to get the wrong idea or anything.
Captain Fuller: Okay, I won’t. What?
Hanson: I usually work with Penhall on an assignment like this.
Captain Fuller: You guys dating?
Hanson (scoffs): Okay. Forget it. You’re the boss. You made that clear. I’m sorry I brought it up.
Captain Fuller: No, no, no. You can bring it up. Look, from what I know about Reggie Brooks, he’s got a thing for hot-looking ladies. And um, I don’t think he’s gonna go for Penhall in a wig.

Captain Fuller (to the others): Hey, how about letting them take those guys downtown and the rest of us go out for pizza?


Doug: You got to take it step-by-step, you know what I mean?
Hanson: The way you’re taking it, by the time midterm comes around, we’ll be busting the president of Columbia.

Hanson: I’ll set him up with your mom.

Doug (to Hanson): Bowling? You two have something in common already. Imagine two men competing for the world’s most boring sport.

Doug: Wait a minute! Since when did I become my partner’s keeper?
Capt. Fuller: Since you were sworn in.

The others: NO!

Hanson: What?
Doug: I feel bad, you know, with this mess and all.
Hanson: Don’t worry about it, okay?
Doug: See, I feel stupid. You don’t know how sorry I am.
Hanson: Doug, I know you’re sorry. You know how I know? You apologized 430 times already. You cleaned my desk. You washed my car. You brought a…whoopee cushion. You sharpened all my pencils.
Doug: Any of them need resharpening?
Hanson: No! No.
Doug: It’s just that you know, shooting your own partner is a very stupid thing to do. You gotta be a little mad at me.
Hanson: No, I’m not.
Doug: Oh, you gotta be.
Hanson: No, I don’t gotta be.
Doug: It’s unhealthy to keep this stuff pent up. You should let the steam off. Get it off your chest.
Hanson: All right, all right! I sharpen my own pencils, pal, understand? No one sharpens my pencils but me. No one.
Doug: Then you are a little mad.
Hanson: Of course I’m mad! You shot me in the ass. And I’ll never forgive you, okay?
Doug: Wonderful. Terrific. One little mistake and you’ll always hold a grudge against me for the rest of my life? Fabulous!
Captain Fuller: Excuse me. What the hell is going on here?
Hanson: Nothing.
Captain Fuller: Have you two been to the department psychiatrist yet?
Doug: Well, I called but he was on vacation.
Captain Fuller: Then make an appointment at county. It’s mandatory for officers involved in shootings to undergo psychiatric evaluations. The two of you get down there now or I will have both your butts. You understand me?

Psychiatrist: Was there any tension between you two right before the shooting?
Doug: No, none.
Psychiatrist: Because sometimes our subconscious has a…greater power than we realize. These accidents may be a release of built-up resentments.
Doug: So, you’re saying that I shot him deliberately?
Hanson: Oh, I know he didn’t shoot me on purpose, Doc. I know that.
Psychiatrist: I’m simply ascertaining your relationship prior to the incident.
Doug: Let me try to save you a little time here. Because you’re sniffing up the wrong tree. He’s my buddy and I would never shoot…ascertain, what does that mean?
Psychiatrist: Are there times when you feel unduly annoyed at your partner’s behavior, habits?
Doug: Never.
Hanson: Well… Sometimes, I wish he wasn’t so sloppy.
Doug: Oh, he’s Mr. Tidy. That gets on my nerves. But we’re friends.
Hanson: And sometimes, I wish he would try to be on time.
Doug: Oh, this is the punctual kid here. That gets annoying. But it’s cool.
Hanson: And sometimes, it seems like he doesn’t work as hard as he should.
Doug: You know, there are things about you I don’t like either.
Hanson: Wha…
Doug: And sometimes, I wish that I could… Oh my god. (turning to the psychiatrist) You’re right.
Hanson: What?
Doug: I did mean to shoot you.
Hanson: You did?
Doug: I did it on purpose. I have built-up resentments.
Psychiatrist: Classic case of aggressive transference.
Doug: Exactly.
Hanson: I should have never turned my back on you.
(A man walks into the room.)
Man: Vicki! How many times… Go back to your room.
Vicki aka the supposed psychiatrist (standing up from desk): I just had that urge, you know?
(They could all see aside from her doctor’s white coat, she has on her pajamas underneath–along with slippers.)
Real Psychiatrist: I’m sorry, gentlemen. I was running late. And Vicki, she lapses now and then. (reading from a file) A shooting, I see. (looking up at both guys now) Are you two familiar with aggressive transference?
Hanson: Yes. How do you feel?
Doug: Fine.
Hanson: Me too.
Doug: Thanks, Doc.
(The guys made a move to leave super fast.)

What About Love?

Dorothy: You are leaving!
Doug: But this is my house.

Hanson: Hey.
Doug: Dorothy threw me out.
Hanson: That’s terrible. Come on in. Want to talk about it or something?
Doug: I kind of need a place to crash.
Hanson: Need a place for the night? You got it. Come on in.
Doug: Actually…I need a place to live.
(Hanson looking all hesitant like he’s weighing the pros and cons)
Doug: You don’t think our friendship could survive living together?
Hanson: Do you?
