Murdock's T-Shirt: Moon Over My Amy
Face: "I'll cover the outside. Guy like me'd look out of place on an assembly line and I don't have anything in my wardrobe to go with grease and grime."
Hannibal: "That's alright, Face. Murdock'll help you press your overalls."
(Face arrives to see B.A. is chasing Murdock)
Face: "Well, well, well, isn't this nice? I'm glad to see the two of you can get along without getting into any trouble."
B.A.: "Ain't no trouble, just gonna wring his neck!"
Rudy: "I just wonder if we're doing the right thing here, Hannibal."
Hannibal: "Rudy, whenever you stand up against slimeballs, you're doing the right thing."
Murdock: "You gotta think nice things. Just, just think happy thoughts; go ahead."
B.A.: "Okay. I'm thinkin' you got hit by a bus."
Williams: "Smith said this guy was looney tunes."
Murdock: ""Looney Tunes," huh? What other TV program do you watch regularly?"
(Murdock is spray-painting a wall)
Murdock: "Spraying a smooth and even coat over the surface that you're workin' on."
B.A.: "If you don't shut up, I'm gonna smooth this here over you!"
