Scene excerpts


  • Christine: You know, I'm starting to worry about Roz. That disciplinary hearing of hers is taking forever.
  • Bull: What's the big deal? Some guy started a fight in a holding cell, she yanked him out.
  • Dan: Perhaps the fact that she neglected to open the door first had something to do with it.

  • Harry: How's the crossword puzzle going, Bull?
  • Bull: I need an eight-letter word for a phrase that contradicts itself.
  • Harry:: Oxymoron.
  • Bull: If you don't want to help me, Harry, just say so.
  • Harry: No, Bull, an oxymoron is two words that cancel each other out. You know, like, jumbo shrimp.
  • Christine: Bitter sweet.
  • Dan: Free love.
  • Bull: I understand.
  • Mac: Yeah, that's a good one too.
