  • Quotes

    • Chance: Nice to meet you, Winston. It's your first name or your last name?
      Winston: Last.
      Chance: What's your first name?
      Winston: Detective.

    • Winston: What kind of work problems you got?
      Chance: Oh, breakdown in civility. Coworkers I don't trust. Boss who doesn't trust me. Lately I've been questioning my choice of profession.
      Winston: Yeah, well, that's going around. Laverne. Laverne Winston. Yeah, I got a name that sounds like a girl's name. I also carry a .45. I got a history of disciplinary problems, and this ain't my first drink today.

    • Chance: No, you don't have to take this. I'm just saying... (Katherine takes the gun and aims at him) Apparently you know what you're doing.
      Katherine: I'm single, and I live downtown.

    • Chance: Do you remember what you said? Nobody deserves to die.
      "Christopher Chance": Sounds like me.
      Chance: No, before that, I just did my job, slept at night--everything was easy.
      "Christopher Chance": No, it wasn't. It was never easy. You just didn't know it yet.

    • Guerrero: My heart grew three sizes that day.

      Referencing the classic Dr. Seuss story and subsequent television adaptation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
