    • Lt. Giardello: I remember another rookie. Stumbled into my squad room full of innocence, full of himself.
      Bayliss: Yep.
      Lt. Giardello: I watched you grow from a boy into a man, Bayliss. I watched you do excellent work. Arh, there was some mistakes.
      Bayliss: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Lt. Giardello: Ed Danvers.
      Bayliss: Oh.
      Lt. Giardello: He's threatening to take you before the department trial board.
      Bayliss: Oh screw him. Little midget.
      Lt. Giardello: No, Bayliss. No. On this day I'm being elevated to Captain, it's a day I've worked hard for. It's a day I've waited for with great anticipation. I don't want anything to happen to spoil this day with unpleasantness. So I'm gonna ask you to apologize to Ed. Now I'm gonna put it to you in the form of a request in the hopes that you'll do me this favour in honour of my promotion.
      Bayliss: I can't.
      Lt. Giardello: Bayliss.
      Bayliss: I can't, sir.
      Lt. Giardello: Then I have to withdraw my request and put it to you in the form of an order.
      Bayliss: I refuse.
      Lt. Giardello: My order?
      Bayliss: Yes.
      Lt. Giardello: Haha. I'm gonna give you till this evening to reconsider. After that the fury's will be unleashed. Ciao.
      Bayliss: You know. Seven years ago I walked in here with a file box and a lot of idealism. I had a clear vision of justice, of morality and no matter what has happened to me, whatever happens around me, I still have that.
      Lt.Giardello: Maybe. But on this job I've seen people change and sometimes for the worst and those that change the most are the ones that don't admit it.
