      • The ending where Deaq is pointing the gun at the Bad DEA guy it is a lot like the movie "Bad Boys" ending

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Aquarius: Damn! That party was off the HOOK!

      • Van: You think I'm running a story? How else would I know about the Towering Inferno? Who's favorite Steve McQueen movie is THE TOWERING INFERNO?
        Deaq: (changing to a single handed grip on his gun) Maybe you got my Blockbuster card.

      • Deaq: You got my note.
        Van: If I turn around and you're wearing a dress I swear I'm going to throw up.
        Deaq: (takes Van's gun that was tucked into the back of his pants) Speedway. Guy who got shot, Who pulled the trigger?
        Van: I don't know.
        Deaq: (sarcastic) Well, gee, I guess I'll let you get back to the party then. Sorry to bother you, man. Maybe I could buy you a Bellini.
        Van: Look ... I want to find out who did it, too. Okay? That guy worked for me.
        Deaq: He was your porter. You hire five a month. English was his second language. Saved you a bitch slap.
        (Deaq pushes Van across the room. Van's still facing away from Deaq.)
        Van: Okay, I think what I need to do here is explain-
        Deaq: (interrupting) Is this bedtime? Did I ask for a story?
        Van: (figuring it out) Oh ... My ... God.
        (Van spins around to face Deaq. He holds his hand in front of him, similar to how he did at the speedway last time he was unarmed.)
        Van: You're Deaqon.
        Deaq: (gun still pointed at Van) You be real sure you want to know my name.
        Van: (speaks really quickly) I'm a cop. Okay? Andre was my partner. He talked about you all the time. (Deaq doesn't look impressed) You guys grew up in Torrence. Your middle name is Lavelle. Your favourite Steve McQueen movie is the Towering Inferno. You ran with a gang. You got caught, he beat the crap out of you, which is about the time you guys stopped talking, what, about 8 or 9 years ago? You moved to New York, he heard you joined up. You work N.Y.P.D. undercover narcotics. Will you please get that thing out of my face now? (drops hands)

      • Billie: Welcome to the Candy Store. Everything you see came off some high rolling scrote who thought he was too rich for the backseat of a squad car. Normally it would go to auction. I had an idea. Everything we seize, we keep. Everything we keep, we use. This is a life of crime 24/7. You don't drop cover. You never flash a badge. So?

      • Lt. Hill: What are you guys, in a Japanese boy band?

      • Deaqon: Is this bedtime? Did I ask for a story?

      • Cassidy: If I was here to get bent over and doggied, wouldn't I be barking?
