When you guys went to Miami, who was watching the Reno area because you pretty much run the Sheriffs department so who was left?

Deputy Travis Junior: Oh f*ck, you're right!

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh that explains what happened.

Deputy Travis Junior: Oh wow. Few people realize, believe it or not, we're the best eight officers of the Reno Sheriffs department.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh there's not only eight. There's way more of us back there.

Deputy Travis Junior: We're the most they say 'camera ready.'

Lt. Jim Dangle: Yeah.

Deputy Travis Junior: So you can imagine them other retards we work with. Phew!

Lt. Jim Dangle: We're the cosmopolitan ones.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: And legally I'm supposed to wear a helmet.

Lt. Jim Dangle: No joke; she's supposed to wear a f*cking helmet. She doesn't do it.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: I'd look like a retard.

What do you think of Cops?

Lt. Jim Dangle: That show is a bunch of crap.

Lt. Raineesha Williams: Crap, crap.

Lt. Jim Dangle: If you watch Cops and if you watch CSI and CSI: Miami and CSI New York, you would think that you go out, you get clues and then you catch who did it.

Deputy Travis Junior: Bullsh*t.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Bullsh*t.

Deputy Travis Junior: That ain't reality.

Lt. Jim Dangle: If you commit a murder in America, 50/50 chance we won't even find out about it. Check your facts. It's true.

Are you still willing to leave the Reno Sheriff's department for another department?

Lt. Jim Dangle: Here's what happened. I went briefly. I was at the Aspen Sheriff's department briefly and you know they have kind of a strict policy on what they would consider homosexual sort of pranks. Is that fair to say? I can feel you eyeballing me right next to me.

Deputy Travis Junior: Well I know that they have a couple openly gay sheriffs there.

Lt. Jim Dangle: They do. They do. Okay, here's what happened.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Well the mayor's gay too.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Not everybody gets me. I thought at Aspen they do kind of group showering. I thought it was group showers. I should have known when I saw one shower head and one guy in the shower, hey maybe they shower solo. So I jumped in the shower with this fella, kind of a big fella, and I started singing 'The Rhythm is Gonna Getcha' and I was doing the thing like I was pinching him with lobster claws like I'm the rhythm, you know. Now you understand how that could be- - if you don't know me and I'm relatively nude and possibly have a ¾ semi on, and I'm doing "Rhythm is Gonna Getcha" with lobster pinchers, if you don't know me, you might think that I'm weird.

Deputy James Garcia: You probably should have sung.

Did you find it chilly in Aspen with your shorts on?

Lt. Jim Dangle: I find it chilly everywhere; that's why I wear control top pantyhose or spanks sometimes. They also fix some of my problem areas.

How about the perks of making a movie? Unlike regular police work, there are trailers, there's craft services, were you impressed by all of that?

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: We didn't get that.

Deputy Travis Junior: We didn't have that.

Deputy S. Jones: Where was crafty when we were doing this thing.

Deputy James Garcia: We didn't even get free board.

Deputy Clementine Johnson: I'm trying to figure out what a goody bag is. I know what I call a goody bag and I have not seen a good goody back.

Was it intrusive having cameras following you around while you're trying to do your civic duty?

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh my G-d.

Deputy Raineesha Williams: I was saying, sir, if a camera was following you around all day every day, do you know what kind of stuff we would catch you doing? How many times we would see you in a candy thong? C'mon now.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Sooner or later, you and all of your friends would be masturbating with the windows open. It happens. It happens every single day.

Lt. Trudy Wiegel: Sometimes several times a day. You know I'm actually kind of lucky because when we first got to Miami, I was driving the wrong way down a one-way street going like 40 and I hit this dog and thank G-d the cameras weren't there.

Where were the cameras most intrusive?

Deputy James Garcia: In the bathrooms.

Deputy Travis Junior: All the time. If the camera followed you 24/7, you wake up, you rub one out, you go to work, you make a deuce, you go back to work, and you go to bed, and if they cut out the part where you were at work, you'd look like a real heavy sh*ttin' horny retard.

Lt. Jim Dangle: See? Think about that.

Deputy Travis Junior: Think about that.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Think about that.

Deputy Travis Junior: We don't like the cameras being pointed this way. Try pointing 'em back at yourself.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Point them that way.

How long is Fox keeping you in Los Angeles? Will you be able to attend any Oscar functions over the next couple weeks?

Deputy Cherisa Kimball: I hope so. I've got a real cute pair of slacks that I purchased and a local merchant from back in Reno gave me some real cute jewelry. Junior and I were talking about this, it's actually edible. It's like candy jewelry, like the candy thong thing I wore. So I'm hoping I get a chance to sort of strut my stuff. I'm looking forward to that.

Is that because Ellen is hosting?

Deputy Cherisa Kimball: I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean by that.

Lt. Jim Dangle: It's a lesbian thing. - nevermind, next question.

Do you guys get down to Las Vegas much?

Deputy Travis Junior: Reno's a real nice town if you go down to Vegas. Real nice.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Real nice. We're also very, very convenient to San Francisco.

Deputy James Garcia: Yeah. We're right by Lake Tahoe. Gotta a lot of nature around there.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh yeah. Great stopping point by the way, you know, fill up for gas and then go somewhere else.

What do you guys in your spare time?

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: I make dried apple people; should I elaborate.?

Lt. Jim Dangle: No, no, they look like little zombies. They're horrible little apples that are all shriveled up and it looks like a zombie with googly eyes, it's horrible.

Deputy Cherisa Kimball: But to be fair, the one you made of Cheney, pretty accurate.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Pretty accurate.

Deputy Travis Junior: Pretty dead on.

Lt. Jim Dangle: I'm also involved in the Washoe County community theater. A lot of people saw me there last year as the Ghost of Christmas Future.

Deputy Travis Junior: I thought you understood it. I never thought...

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh no, I went around twice. The Ghost of Christmas Future has no lines. He's the one who points at Scrooge's mossy grave. People thought it was very eerie when I did it.

So there was nothing else you learned about each other?

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Well, I'd say, you think my gas is bad when we're just in the station. Try riding on an econo route bus with me for five days.

Deputy James Garcia: It's like Nagasaki in there.

Deputy Travis Junior: I will say, if you ever travel cross country on a bus, they have these on/off passes that you get for an additional four dollars that allow you to get off the bus and then back on. Splurge.

Deputy Raineesha Williams: Yes!

Deputy Travis Junior: It's worth it, you know. You think about the four dollars, but then later on you wish you did it.

Lt. Jim Dangle: It's scary on a bus, those winos are jackin' off on Ripple. They'll pull your tooth out if you fall asleep long enough.

Deputy S. Jones: I learned that these individuals here, they're modern day heroes. Do you hear me? These people should be respected. I love these people, alright? These people'll take a bullet for me.

Deputy Raineesha Williams: Who?

Deputy S. Jones: That's what I learned. You guys, right?

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh really?

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: No. I thought you were about to reveal some people behind the curtain.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Behind the curtain, yeah.

Deputy S. Jones: No, no, I was talking about you guys.

Deputy Clementine Johnson:

Deputy S. Jones: You would probably take it.

Deputy James Garcia: I defy any law agency in the country or the world to do what we did. To one moment be trying to control a chicken, a frightened chicken, and rescue it without hurtin' it, and the second moment be thrown into a whole new environment like Miami, not be invited into the convention, quarantine, we take over the city, we get the job done.

Deputy S. Jones: Not that many people died.

That's not true.

Deputy James Garcia: We made a few mistakes.

Lt. Jim Dangle: A handful at best.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: A handful of people died.

Lt. Jim Dangle: A handful.

Deputy Clementine Johnson: We weren't totally responsible for that.

Deputy S. Jones: How long were we there, three days?

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Yeah. I also killed a turtle but that was just for sport. It turns out there's a reason it's not a sport, because it's hard to do.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Oh dear!

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: It's very messy.

Lt. Jim Dangle: I said before we came in, don't volunteer information.

Can you give us a little background. Who started in the Reno Department first? Who's been there the longest?

Lt. Jim Dangle: Garcia's probably been there the longest, which is weird because he's never really been promoted. Do you know why that is?

Deputy James Garcia: Well, because I guess I'm not the right looking type of Latino. They seem to get an edge on those type of things - minority hirings and such - and I'm pretty comfortable where I am and I like what I do and I don't need to be all high fallutin and being the boss and driving a better car and get a better parking space than you. I'm a regular person and that's where I like to say. I don't have to go showing off.

Lt. Jim Dangle: You're also a pretty angry weirdo.

Deputy Travis Junior: And also you shoot about two kids a year.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Yeah. They frown on that sort of thing.

Do you think law enforcement might see a surge in recruitment after seeing this movie and watching you guys at work?

Deputy Cherisa Kimball: No.

Deputy Raineesha Williams: No, I hope not.

Deputy Travis Junior: If there's one thing I hope children take away from this movie, it's don't go into law enforcement.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Crime doesn't pay. Neither does law enforcement.

Deputy James Garcia: Join a carnival.

Deputy Raineesha Williams: Well, crime pays a lot better.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Well, no, crime doesn't pay better but you get to make your own hours at least.

Deputy Travis Junior: Technically, if you go to jail, you get dental and we don't get dental.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: They took away my dental plan halfway through a root canal.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Elaborate.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Again? You want me to elaborate?

Lt. Jim Dangle: Yeah.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Well, I can feel it coming.

Lt. Jim Dangle: No, I'm not going to hit you.

Deputy Trudy Wiegel: Uh huh. I'm sorry about that everybody.

Were there any repercussions for wrecking all those Miami police cars?

Deputy Travis Junior: Why are we on trial here.

Lt. Jim Dangle: It would look like that. If you look at everything you see with your eyes and what we say and do, yes, we look grossly incompetent.

Deputy Travis Junior: There were many cars we did not wreck.

Lt. Jim Dangle: Sir, there was a whole bunch...

Deputy Travis Junior: That didn't make the cut.

Deputy S. Jones: There are tons of CGI and blue screen pyrotechnics.

Deputy James Garcia: Yeah. That's green screen.

Lt. Jim Dangle: That might be a bit of a stretch.

Deputy S. Jones: Jar bait.

Lt. Jim Dangle: They didn't put Jar Jar in.

Deputy S. Jones: Jar Jar's in the movie.

Deputy James Garcia: You've got a cameraman in the back going, 'Drive faster, drive faster, take this turn, we need more action.' It's not our fault. We're being goaded into making mistakes.

Lt. Jim Dangle: It's Danny DeVito, he's drunk on Limoncello. You should be asking him these questions.
