    • Baretta: Ain't this somethin' Sister Barbara is quite a lady man. She got the Rooster his very own and entire self hustlin' for her ain't that somethin'. Rooster: Man I consider it a charitable contribution, I mean I ain't got no choice, the cat she works for is the real Godfather. Baretta: Well that's a very pretty story, and I think your charitable heart deserves a little recognition but right now I'd like you to pay attention to this here Godfather, the name is Tony B and he wants a little info.

    • Baretta: What's a matter, whaddya got? Brubaker: You know that kid Fats brought in, the OD. Baretta: Yeah that teenager, how's he doin'? Brubaker: Doin' nothin' hospital just called he's in the morgue. They keep bringin' that stuff in and die within a week. Baretta: It stinks Boss, this rotten job stinks man. Brubaker: I'm not leanin' on ya Tony, I just wanna know what ya got? Baretta: It don't make no difference what I got, it ain't gonna bring that kid back. Brubaker: Is that what I asked you? Baretta: No, I mean no, I got a guy he's an ex-junkie he deals himself, name of Danny Sanchez. Brubaker: Ah terrific this is just what I need one more pusher, one more dealer. I got a slammer full of pushers and dealers. I want El Greco. Baretta: Don't you think I want him too! What if we don't get him? Who cares? You think anybody cares. How many more kids have to wind up in that morgue before somebody cares. Brubaker: Look that's what they pay you and me for, right. Baretta: You know as well as me that ninety percent of the junk that goes on in this town has to do with dope. Whether it's some strung out junkie who's robbin' a liquor store, or an organized crime against the bank, or rollin' over some poor old lady it's all dope. Brubaker: Baretta you do job, you just go and do your job. Baretta: And my job stinks. They ain't my kids, I ain't got no kids. But they got parents don't they. What do the parents do? They yell to the PTA. And what does the PTA do? They do nothin' . What do the politicians do? They don't do nothin'! The churches don't do nothin', the president don't do nothin'. They all stand there and what do they yell about, oh they yell about their taxes, the alkies, we gotta take care of the alkies we open AA's all over the country to fix the alkies. When it comes to some kid dyin' of dope, what do they all do, they turn their nose the other way and say hey cop I'm payin' ya fix it. Brubaker: Hey, hey look what do you think this is some kind of romance we're gonna have a happy endin' here. You gonna spend a little time out on the street, you gonna solve the problems of the whole world. Let me tell you somethin' this is a lousy job, it stinks, you just go and do your job.

    • Baretta: Listen Sister, don't mess around with Rosie, she'll bend you into a pretzel.

    • Baretta: The jailhouse and the graveyard are full of people who said they'd get back to me.
