Lennie Briscoe's One Liners
Wednesday, December 29, 2004
Jerry Orbach was famous for his one liners as Det. Lennie Briscoe on "Law and Order". Here is a sample:
Black Tie (episode title)
(Viewing a corpse in a tuxedo)
Lennie: Conveniently dressed for his funeral.
Lennie: We don't really give a damn about these people looting and bustin' up people's cars. That's not our department. We're homicide.
Lennie: So, your friend there is homicidin' somebody.
Mike (discussing infidelity as a motive for murder): Don't wives always know?
Lennie: Mine did.
Mike: Yours didn't hire a hit man.
Lennie: Not yet.
Coffee cart vendor (deciphering an order for "skinny cap, no lead."): Decaffeinated cappuccino, with skim milk.
Lennie: What's the point?
Lab technician: It's a photocopy from a machine with dirt on the drums...If you get me the machine and it hasn't been serviced, I can maybe do a positive I.D.
Lennie: Oh great. We'll organize a line-up of Xerox machines.
Jerry passed away this morning.
