    • Andy McNally: I gotta say, I did not expect hambulance from someone like you.
      Sam Swarek: Someone like me?
      Andy McNally: Yeah. You're just so serious all the time.
      Sam Swarek: See, I hate that.
      Andy McNally: What?
      Sam Swarek: (changing his voice) "Why is Sam always so serious?" I've been getting that my whole life. When I was in third grade I went out and bought the biggest joke book on earth.
      Andy McNally: Yeah, obviously memorized it.
      Sam Swarek: All one hundred and one jokes. (Andy is laughing) Couldn't even make my own sister laugh.
      Andy McNally: You got a sister?
      Sam Swarek: Yeah, Sarah. She lives in St. Catherines.
      Andy McNally: Oh. Well, it was a long time ago. So, maybe you just need a new joke book.

    • Sam Swarek: (Sam talks about his sister) When she was 13 Sarah got attacked by this group of guys. She got pretty messed up by it, I was only nine at the time and I didn't really get it. I tried everything to cheer her up.
      Andy McNally: Hence the joke book.
      Sam Swarek: Not that it really worked.
      Andy McNally: You were nine years old. I'm sure you did everything you could.
      Sam Swarek: She didn't need cheering up. She just needed someone to protect her.
      Andy McNally: So you became a cop.

    • Andy McNally: Come on, what kind of music do you like listening to?
      Sam Swarek: Rush, I'm a big Rush fan.
      Andy McNally: Who?
      Sam Swarek: Yeah, I like The Who. Classic rock, you know. Okay, scan around, find me some Free.
      Andy McNally: Free?

    • Andy McNally: Hey, what kind of music do you like listening to when you drive?
      Sam Swarek: Nothing. I like to be alone with my thoughts.
      Andy McNally: Hm, what thoughts?
      Sam Swarek: My own private thoughts.
      Andy McNally: Okay, like, what's one of them?
      Sam Swarek: Are you allergic to silence?
      Andy McNally: What are you talking about? I'm silent all the time.

    • Andy McNally: (talking about plea deals) What about Anton Hill? All that work that you put in undercover. You know, you'd be pissed if he got flipped for a lighter sentence.
      Sam Swarek: I never actually got Hill, remember? So, not really relevant.
      Andy McNally: Yeah, but, you know-
      Sam Swarek: Try not to overhink it.
      Andy McNally: (scoffs) You compartmentalize a lot, don't you?
      Sam Swarek: We're friends, so I'm gonna let that slide.
      Andy McNally: (trying to compose herself) So, this prisoner, Swan, is he dangerous?
      Sam Swarek: If he was do you think they'd be sending you with me?
      Andy McNally: (ready to explode) You know what?
      Sam Swarek: What?
      Andy McNally: I'm gonna let that slide.
