FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (opening commentary)
      Tom: Off duty cop foils drug deal - we love it. Well, we're taxpayers, aren't we? And here's a guy working for us even when we're not paying him to. It's nice to feel we're getting something for nothing. That's the public angle on it. To the cops it look different. Department regulations require that a police officer have his firearm with him 24 hours a day. There's no such thing as an off duty cop.

    • (upon receiving the ballistics report from the crime scene)
      Elaine: I've never seen a ballistics report like this. Reads like the history of the Second World War.

    • Christine: (about Officer Narin) What a sweet guy!
      Lt. Hogan: you know, I never thought I'd live to see the day when one cop called another cop 'a sweet guy'.
      Christine: Well, he is.
      Freddie: Yeah he is.
      Colby: He's kind of sweet.
      Lt. Hogan: Why don't you people find something to do.

    • Jonathan Silva (lawyer): I think you have a problem.
      Melvin Raymond (suspect): That's why I got a lawyer.
      Silva: You don't need a lawyer, you need a magician.
      Raymond: Hey listen Clarence Darrow. They don't got no stuff. How can they they nail me with dealing it if they don't got none?
      Silva: Let me explain it to you in, am, terms you'll understand. What they found instead of narcotics was a rather upsetting number of dead people and homicide you, uh, may or may not know is an even less pleasant charge to face than narcotics trafficking.
      Raymond: Whose side are you on?
      Silva: The side of truth and justice.

    • (closing commentary)
      Tom: For one night Jack Narin seemed to be a hero. That's the way I wanted to write about him. There's no way I can write that story now. They say sacrifice is what makes heroes. Well, Jack Narin sacrificed everything for a child he loved, but it was a bad bargain for what does a man profiteth if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Hey, listen Clarence Darrow...
      Refers to Clarence Darrow (1857-1938), one of the most famous American lawyers and civil libertarians. He is best known for defending two thrill killers who murdered a teenager in 1924 and defending John T. Scopes in the so-called "Monkey" Trial in 1925.

    • What does a man profiteth if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?

      Tom is from quoting the New Testament, Mark 8:36, King James Version (KJV), which reads "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

      Also, Matthew 16:26, KJV, is similar "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"
