Samuels: How do I look?
Lacey: With due respect, sir, we got this jerk we can't touch and your concern about how you're going to look on a date, is irrelevant to me.
Samuels: If I let every case that backed me into a corner eat at me, then I'd been eaten long ago.
Claudia: If you ever have to make a judgement call like that, a man wth a gun, I don't care what color he is. I hope you do exactly the same thing.
Petrie: I can't believe ... I can't believe you're saying that. I should go out and roust people?
Claudia: I'm not saying 'roust people'. But if you do make an error, I hope it is on the side of caution. I'd rather see you face a brutality charge than me being the grieving widow at some inspector's funeral.
Samuels: You know, Petrie, my grandfather tells a story about the old country. He and my grandmother were on a train somewhere from Minsk to ...
Petrie: Is this the one about the Cossack?
Samuels: Oh, I told you that one already? With the helmlet filled with sour cream?
Petrie: Yes, sir, a very nice story.
Samuels: So you'll give it some thought.
