Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Who loves ya baby?"

Answer: Lt. Kojak

The lollipop-licking, bald-headed Theo Kojak fought crime in New York City's 11th Precinct. (He switched to the lollipops from cigarettes.)
Kojak was a dogged copper, but one not afraid to bend the rules.
The character emerged from 1973 TV movie "The Marcus-Nelson Murders". It was the fictionalised retelling of a real crime.
Telly Savalas played Kojak from 1973 to 1978.
2. "Evening all"

Answer: Sgt. Jack Dixon

Sgt Jack Dixon is the shadow that has hung over real British policing for 60 years, and counting.
He was a leading cop in the TV show "Dixon of Dock Green". It portrayed a period when just about everyone was law-abiding and the police were ever present on the street to catch the (few) bad guys. They upheld the law decently and honestly and were respected in return by the people they served. It was a time when policemen (there were not many policewomen about) could clip an idle youthful miscreant around the ear and expect him to become totally law abiding thereafter.
It is doubtful if that era ever existed, and yet modern policing is judged by that myth.
"Dixon of Dock Green" ran from 1955 to 1976 and Jack Warner played the title character.
Each episode opened with Dixon talking to the camera beginning with the words "Evening all". He then outlined the type of incident that show was about. At the end he did a similar address to wrap things up, and finished with the words "Goodnight all."
3. "Just one more thing."

Answer: Lt. Columbo

With these familiar words, Lieutenant Columbo turned the screws just a little bit more on whoever he suspected of a particular murder.
Apparently scatterbrained and shabbily dressed, he was frequently underestimated by the the guilty party.
The real interest in the shows was not who committed the crime, but seeing Columbo unravel it.
Peter Falk was best known for playing Columbo in the series that ran from 1978 to 2003. (Note, he was not the only actor to play Columbo.)
By the way, if you definitely know Columbo's first name, then you're a better quiz player than me, Gunga Din.
4. "Book him, Danno"

Answer: Capt. Steve McGarret

"Book him, Danno" was the instruction given by Detective Captain Steve McGarrett to a subordinate officer in "Hawaii Five-O."
The show was set in Hawaii, naturally, and focused on former US naval officer Steve McGarrett and his crime team as they battled crime and criminals.
Jack Lord played McGarett between 1968 and 1980. A remake of the show began airing in 2010.
5. "All we want are the facts, ma'am."

Answer: Sgt. Joe Friday

It's myth busting time. It has entered TV folklore as "Just the facts, ma'am" but Sgt Joe Friday never said it like that on "Dragnet".
Friday's actual phrase, as quoted in the question, was subsumed by satirist Stan Freberg in a spoof 1953 record entitled "St. George and the Dragonet."
"Dragnet" began life on radio and moved to TV in 1951, eventually running until 1959.
(The radio show continued to run concurrently from 1949 to 1957.)
It was also to have later TV revivals and a movie, in 1987.
Regarded as the forerunner of all police procedurals, "Dragnet" was gritty and detailed, without the innocence or gloss of other TV cop shows.
It was also noted for its opening narration: "Ladies and gentlemen: the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent." (Later amended.)
Joe Friday was played by Jack Jack Webb from 1949 to 1959 and again from 1967 to 1970).
6. "Fire up the Quattro."

Answer: DCI Gene Hunt

Gene Hunt was a hard-bitten cop from the days when cops were tough and the bad guys knew their place was in the wrong.
He was xenophobic, misogynist and probably homophobic in the days when those were common attributes among British cops (allegedly.)
Gene Hunt was a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) in the slightly bizarre television series "Life On Mars" and its sequel "Ashes To Ashes".
I am not going to try to explain the premise, because that just makes my head hurt. Suffice to say the shows involved some time-travelling.
But that ploy was a useful one in contrasting police procedures from the modern age to those in the era that the time traveller went back to.
Hunt was a no-nonsense cop and his instruction to "fire up the Quattro" meant a road trip in his section's Audi Quattro car.
"Life On Mars" aired in 2006 and 2007 and "Ashes to Ashes" from 2008 to 2010.
Philip Glennister played Hunt.
7. "No jury in the world's ever going to convict a baby. Hmm, maybe Texas."

Answer: Chief Clancy Wiggum:

If you are ever unfortunate enough to be the victim of a crime, Chief Clancy Wiggum is one of the last cops you will want to see at your door.
He was chief of police in Springfield, home place of those strange yellow people in "The Simpsons".
Overweight and inept, the doughnut chomping Wiggum could probably not even have caught a cold.
The quote used was uttered when he was challenged to arrest baby Maggie Simpson for shooting millionaire nuclear plant owner Montgomery Burns.
Hank Azaria voiced Chief Wiggum (among others) in the animated show from 1989.
8. "Police work is my life."

Answer: Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane

The hapless Rosco P. Coltrane was the sheriff of Hazzard County, Georgia, whose life was blighted by the nefarious activities of cousins Bo and Luke Duke. His inability to bring them to justice provided much of the comedy of the well-loved show "The Dukes of Hazzard."
It aired between 1976 and 1985. James Best played the sheriff.
9. "Grab your gear."

Answer: Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs

With these words Gibbs indicated that his crew should get ready to go to another murder scene.
Gibbs was an ex-marine who led a team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents. Investigating any crime involving US Navy or Marine personnel was their role.
Gibbs was a taciturn, driven agent who expected high standards of his team members.
Gibbs was played by Mark Harmon in "NCIS", which first aired on US television in 2003 and was a huge ratings success.
10. "Let's do it to them before they do it to us."

Answer: Sgt. Stan Jablonski

These were generally the parting words of Sgt. Stan "Stosh" Jablonski as he finished briefing crews on "Hill Street Blues."
In one episode he explained his meaning "I'm saying, let's be a good cop out there. Let's do our job before the bad guys do theirs."
Jablonski was proud of the fact that in 27 years in the Job, he had only every discharged his gun once, and that was into the air.
"Hill Street Blues" aired between 1981 and 1987. It was police procedural showing the lives of the cops at a precinct in an unnamed city.
During its run, the show earned 98 Emmy nominations.
Sgt. Jablonski was played by Robert Protsky between 1984 and 1987.
