  • Quotes

    • Dempsey: It's my hunch, but it's your butt too. I'm out of ideas, it's your country. You think of something.

    • Makepeace: You? Order me?
      Dempsey: You're damn' right. I'm a lieutenant and you… are just a sergeant.
      Makepeace: We… don't have lieutenants!
      Dempsey: You've got one now.
      Makepeace: Well, I'm not taking orders from him.

    • Makepeace: With the greatest respect lieutenant, there are several flaws in that argument.
      Dempsey: Believe me sergeant, believe this. [ He taps his nose. ] Believe the nose, the nose knows. I'm telling you.

    • Makepeace [ discussing their cover as a married couple ]: Somehow, I don't think this is going to work.
      Dempsey: Why is that?
      Makepeace: I mean, how can we carry this off if we don't even like each other?
      Dempsey: Who says we have to like each other? Lots of married couples hate each other's guts. We could be one of them.

    • Spikings: Sergeant Makepeace would be a good detective to show you around.
      Dempsey: Suppose we don't get along?
      Spikings: Oh, I think you'll get along.

    • Spikings: Where did you get that fancy car you arrived in?
      Dempsey: I rented it at the airport.
      Spikings: How long do you intend to keep it?
      Dempsey: Until O'Grady stops paying for it.
      Spikings: When will that be, do you think?
      Dempsey: Depends on how guilty he feels about me.
      Spikings: I will never feel that guilty, lieutenant.
      Dempsey: I hope not.
      Spikings: And I don't accept threats, from anyone!
      Dempsey: Neither do I.
      Spikings: Least of all… Yanks!

    • Spikings: Are you offering me a bloody yank?

    • Dempsey: What have I got to lose? I'm next on the list, right? If I'm gonna go down, I'm gonna take Coltrane with me!
      O'Grady: Because you feel bad about Joe?
      Dempsey: Not as bad as if he had shot me.

    • Joey: This could be the big one!
      Dempsey: Now where have I heard that before?
      Joey: You don't believe me, do you?
      Dempsey: You stink of yesterday's booze, Joey.
