Vote up your favorite quotes from 'The Heat.'

Here are the best quotes from The Heat, a movie that tells the often humorous tale of what happens when a straight-laced FBI agent is tasked with working with a rowdy Boston detective in search of a Russian mobster. The crime comedy movie was written by Parks and Recreation scribe Katie Dippold and directed by Pail Feig, who previously saw success with the comedy Bridesmaids. The Heat opened in theaters in the United States on June 28, 2013.

In The Heat, Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a successful yet not respected FBI agent who struggles to fit in among her peers. Much to her displeasure, she is sent by her supervisor to Boston, Massachusetts, to take the lead on an investigation to nab a Russian mobster. In Boston, Ashburn meets the police captain (Tom Wilson) first then the Boston Police detective she'll be working with, Detective Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy). Despite having the captain on her side, Agent Ashburn is not welcomed by Detective Mullins and the two instantly clash.

The two ladies try their best to work together to take down the enemy but the combination of Ashburn's conservative style and Mullins' often foul and unconventional style initially do not mesh well together. In the end however the officers realize that they might not be all too different after all and perhaps the two of them, who never really had friends on their own, might just be perfect friends for one another.
