  • Quotes

    • Benedetto: Look, Country. I got some work to do here. I don't want to be worrying about my back.
      Renko: Don't worry about your back, pal. Worry about your personality.

    • Furillo: I know what you did to Officer Renko, Lieutenant, and I know what Officer Hill did to you.
      Benedetto: Yeah, well, everything's okay. I squared with both of them.
      Furillo: That's not the point. If you'd been on my roster you'd have been out the next day. We don't have any "wild wests" show up here and we don't have any freelancers. You operate under this precinct you're gonna clear procedure and you're going to go by the book. Understood?
      Benedetto: Gotcha.
      Furillo: That's the "B" answer. The "A" answer is "Yes, Captain!"

    • Furillo: (about Faye meeting with Joyce) Maybe just the two of you. You're going to have to get together and come to terms sooner or later.
      Faye: Okay! She can call me! I'm in the book!…Under "Furillo…"

    • Washington: (defending LaRue) LaRue's got a couple of rough edges, so what?
      Benedetto: I know guys in midtown who take his career bio for light reading in the john…you take away the rough edges and all you got is a Rolex and a cheap pair of loafers.
