In this mismatched buddy cop dramedy, an amazingly handsome, happy-go-lucky FBI agent is paired with a local, hard scrabble Michigan homicide detective. As they solve crimes together, their polar opposite methods only slightly outweigh their disdain for each other.

Joey, we made a deal.

You'll realize that you're

No, I'm not.
You don't wanna know

He wants me to say,

I feel like I'm losing everybody.

Because he looks at you the same

God, I can't believe this.

Dear God, I miss him so much.

What villain you going as? Michael

What are you trying to say, Dawson?
Because the guy you dated

He attacks in 1 00-mile increments.
That makes Capeside his next target.
- Does that bother you?
- Should it?
- Have fun tonight.
- We will.

I haven't talked to him

Yes, I'm angry.
It just doesn't happen to be at Bob.
Let her know that you're completely

- Let's not get ahead of ourselves.
- Okay, the rumor is true.
I'd like you to meet
your new lab partner.
So let's have a friendly conversation.
I also have a date,

- Except for one thing.
- What's that?
Yeah. Well, yeah.
We're observing the reproductive

I'll just tell Dr. Rand that this

But I... I just...

- Sure. We'll catch up.
So let's just save

Even more amazing:
Personality like yours, and you can.
A lot of people would consider you
a lucky woman.
...that when you loosen up,
you're not half bad to be around.
I owe you an explanation,
and this time, I owe you the truth.
Okay. So if it wasn't my feelings
for Jen that upset you, what was it?
Both of them, okay?
You don't have to worry, Jo.
You're gonna make it out of here.
Do you know what I find fascinating?
- What's that supposed to mean?
- It means you shouldn't be here.
And do you remember your very
convincing, very heartfelt response?
Look at me and tell me
that I was wrong...
Could it possibly be your reasons
are the same as mine?
So how'd tonight go for you?
That's good. Because that's exactly

Take a little ride with me.
Let me illustrate my point.
So, what do you say?

Thanks for the sex tips, Casanova.

Perfect. Then in keeping

It's your turn, Joey.
- It's a stupid question.

But if you go through those halls

I don't know if the rumors

Okay, yeah, sure, but I...
Maybe I'm not in the tax bracket that
