Liz Thompson: [looking at Durham Cathedral] That's my favourite view, Chief Inspector
George Gently: I think it's becoming mine too. Why are you here, sergeant?
Liz Thompson: I'm the Chief Constable's new driver.
George Gently: You enjoying it?
Liz Thompson: Yes. I get to go everywhere he goes. Never knew County Durham had so many golf courses.
Pat Shepherd: [Being introduced to George by her husband Alan] George, lovely to meet you. I'm going to embarrass you both now; you're the nearest thing my husband's got to a hero.
John Bacchus: [after failing to get a search warrant from threee magistrates] Do you want me to break in, Guv?
George Gently: Do you want to ask me a different question, John?
John Bacchus: Can I have the afternoon off, Guv?
George Gently: Absolutely.
George Gently: [as Bacchus is walking away] John, don't get caught.
Paul Collison: Look, I just want you to know that I think using violence against kids is barbaric.
John Bacchus: My dad belted me when I was a kid; didn't do me any harm.
Paul Collison: [With sarcasm] That's a matter of opinion.
Terri Molloy: You deserve better than this, Tommy. I'm sorry.
Sgt Molloy: Ah, the world would be a painful place if we all got what we deserved, huh?
