Danny Butterman Quotes:

  • Danny Butterman: Where's the trolley boy?

    Nicholas Angel: In the freezer.

    Danny Butterman: Did you say "cool off?"

    Nicholas Angel: No I didn't say anything...

    Danny Butterman: Shame.

    Nicholas Angel: Well, there was the bit that you missed where I distracted him with the cuddly monkey then I said "play time's over" and I hit him in the head with the peace lily.

    Danny Butterman: You're off the fuckin' chain!

  • Danny Butterman: So what made you want to become a policeman?

    Nicholas Angel: Officer.

    Danny Butterman: What made you want to become a policeman-officer?

    Nicholas Angel: I don't remember a time when I didn't want to be a police officer... apart from the summer of 1979 when I wanted to be Kermit the Frog. It all started with my Uncle Derek. He was a Sergeant in the Met. He bought me a police pedal car when I was five. I rode around in it every second I was awake - arresting kids twice my size for littering and spitting. I got beaten up a lot when I was young, but it didn't stop me. I wanted to be like Uncle Derek.

    Danny Butterman: He sounds like a good bloke.

    Nicholas Angel: Actually, he was arrested for selling drugs to students.

    Danny Butterman: What a cunt...

    Nicholas Angel: Probably bought the pedal car with the proceeds. Needless to say, I never went near it again. I just let it rust. But I never lost the profound sense of right and wrong I felt at the wheel of that pedal car. I had to prove to myself that the Law could be proper and righteous and for the good of humankind. It was from that moment that I was destined to be a police officer.

    Danny Butterman: Shame...

    Nicholas Angel: How so?

    Danny Butterman: I think you would have made a great Muppet...

  • [Danny and Nicholas have just watched 'Point Break']

    Danny Butterman: What do you think?

    Danny Butterman: Yeah, motherfucker!

  • Inspector Frank Butterman: I suppose you're wondering why we call them the "Andies"?

    Nicholas Angel: They're both called Andrew?

    Inspector Frank Butterman: [delighted] They said you were good!

    Danny Butterman: Also because talking to them is an uphill struggle, isn't it, Dad?

    [Danny gets hit on the head with a wastepaper basket]

    Danny Butterman: 'Cause I am one?

  • Danny Butterman: Ever fired your gun in the air and yelled, 'Aaaaaaah?'

  • Nicholas Angel: In the meantime, why don't you check out a few of Martin Blower's clients?

    DS Andy Cartwright: Yeah, we'll put a call in to Aaron A. Aaronson, shall we?

    Nicholas Angel: Please, don't be childish. At least consider interviewing the widow. Martin Blower was clearly having an affair with Eve Draper.

    DS Andy Wainwright: Ohh, and how did you establish that?

    Danny Butterman: [pounds table] 'Cause we sat through three hours of so-called acting last night, and the kiss was the only convincing moment in it.

    DS Andy Wainwright: All right, pipe down, biggun'.

    DS Andy Cartwright: Here, what else you got, Crockett and Tubby?

    Nicholas Angel: Skid marks.

    DS Andy Wainwright: Now who's being childish?

    Nicholas Angel: There were no skid marks at the scene! Doesn't it seem a little strange that Martin Blower would lose control of his car and not think to apply the brakes?

  • Danny Butterman: Forget it, Nicholas... it's Sandford.

  • Nicholas Angel: I didn't mean to upset the apple cart.

    DS Andy Cartwright: Oh yeah, cause we all sell apples 'round here, don't we?

  • DS Andy Wainwright: What are you thinking? Foul play? Maybe...

    [to Danny and Nicholas]

    Danny Butterman: [smiling] Hey, that's us!

  • [Sergeant Angel has told Danny Butterman that Official Vocabulary no longer refers to car crashes as accidents: They are now called collisions]

    Danny Butterman: Hey, why can't we say "accident," again?

    Nicholas Angel: Because "accident" implies there's nobody to blame.

  • Nicholas Angel: Yes, sir. Why is everyone eating chocolate cake?

    Inspector Frank Butterman: The Black Forest gateau is on Danny, as punishment for his little indiscretion.

    Nicholas Angel: His...? Sir, I don't think driving under the influence can be called a "little indiscretion."

    Inspector Frank Butterman: No, the gateau is for misplacing his helmet the other week. Last night's incident will require something a rather more serious. Do you like ice cream?

    Nicholas Angel: I'm sorry, sir. I don't follow.

    Inspector Frank Butterman: Let's just say that we won't be short of Chunky Monkey for the next month.

    Danny Butterman: [annoyed] Daaaaaad!

    Danny Butterman: You should see the one on the other side.

  • Nicholas Angel: I just want to be... good at what I do.

    Danny Butterman: You are good at what you do, you just need to switch off that big ol' melon of yours.

    Nicholas Angel: That's just it Danny, I don't think I know how.

    Danny Butterman: I can show you.

    [opens doors to a closet, reveals his rather large and extensive DVD collection]

    Nicholas Angel: [stunned] By the power of Greyskull!

    Danny Butterman: Point Break or Bad Boys II?

    Danny Butterman: No I mean which do you want to watch first?

    Nicholas Angel: You are pulling my leg right?

    Nicholas Angel: Where on earth did you get these?

    Arthur Webley: Found 'em.

    Danny Butterman: He found them.

    Nicholas Angel: And what is this?

    Danny Butterman: Sea mine.

    Arthur Webley: Sea mine.

    Nicholas Angel: Well, Mr. Webley this is an extremely dangerous collection, it's a wonder nobody's been hurt before.

    Arthur Webley: Nah, just a lot of junk.
