Set-Up: Fletch, played by Chevy Chase, is being pursued by the police and in his effort to get away he jumps into and begins to drive a car that a teenager is in the process of stealing.
Line(s): Teenager: Are you a cop?
Fletch: As far as you know.
Teenager: Are you going to take me to jail for car theft?
Fletch: Why? Did you steal the car?
Teenager: I sure did.
Fletch: Well, I’m not even sure that’s a crime anymore. There’ve been a lot of changes in the law.
No deep thoughts here. I just thought my friends in blue would appreciate it. In fact, let’s add “Hug a cop, yeah I said it, go ahead, reach out, and hug the men in blue that are here today!” as another police reference from the movie.
