      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: Dead end street; where the shouts and laughter of children once echoed beneath the street lights until parents called them home to tuck them into their beds. That was before crack. Now the street lights are shot out and parents tuck guns beneath their pillows. Some people call it a neighborhood undergoing change. I call it a neighborhood under siege.

      • Tom: You look a little warm.
        Frank: That's why they call it a heat wave.
        Tom: It could be worst.
        Frank: Yeah?
        Tom: You could be working days.

      • Frank: All I'm saying is I want air conditioning in the car.
        Kevin: Frank, I heard you, I heard you. You think I don't?
        Frank: Some day they're gonna come looking for us and find us shriveled up like a pair of mummies in King Tut's tomb.
        Kevin: By the time we the car down to get it installed, there's going to be snow on the streets.
        Frank: Yeah, and then we won't have a heater then either.

      • Christine: Suspect's lawyer's in your office and, ah, he's cute when he's mad.
        Elaine: Great.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Wars have been fought over pieces of turf as large as continents and as small as city blocks; over something as mundane as a load of tea or as insidious as cocaine. The front on this war grows closer, avenues of escape grow smaller. Just look out your window. What we do about what we see there is up to us. We all have the right to remain silent, but can we?

        A reference to the Tomb of King Tutankhamun, which was discovered in 1922. Tutankhamun was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty (ruled 1333 BC – 1324 BC), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. He is the only Pharaoh to have a pop culture nickname (King Tut) and was made famous by Steve Martin's legendary Saturday Night Live skit in April of 1978. The tomb was also the basis for a 2006 film called The Curse of King Tut's Tomb.
