    • Morgan: You trying to say something to me right now.
      Gideon: Only if you're hiding something you need to trust us. Trust us enough to tell us about it.
      Morgan: Gideon. It's not about trust. It's about having a little privacy. I got the right to keep something to myself. Look at us, man, we practically live together already.

    • Carl Buford: (as he's being arrested) Wait. Wait. Derek, isn't there something you can do for me?

      Morgan: No, Carl, actually I'm saying that you had everything to do with making me who I am. Because of you I'm somebody who gets to spend the rest of his life making sure that guys like you go down.

    • Morgan: Call me Agent Morgan.
      Det. Gordinski: You'll always just be Derek to me.
