(Searching the victim's apartment)
Ed Green: Here's a letter to Malloy from the D.A.'s office asking him to come downtown for an interview.
Lennie Briscoe: About what?
Ed Green: One of his buyers complained Malloy's company defrauded them. Complaint names Malloy and his partner.
Lennie Briscoe: Let me guess, Cally Lonegan.
Ed Green: You got it.
Lennie Briscoe: I don't know why they complained about a little fraud. With Lonegan on the picture they're lucky not to get burned to the ground and left for death.
Anita Van Buren: I'll be damned.
Ed Green: The FBI is covering for Cally's sorry ass for everything up to and including murder.
Lennie Briscoe: Bad idea, detective.
Ed Green: (Struggling to get to gang of suspects) Lennie, get out of my way!
Cally: Hey, you two look like you need couples' counseling.
(The detectives find white powder in Malloy's apartment)
Lennie Briscoe: Coke or junk?
Ed Green: It ain't talcum powder.
