    When Nick Perna, the best friend of Whitey's nephew Tony Di Melli, foolishly allows himself to be talked into stealing a car so that they can impress their dates, he ends up dead when the two of them inadvertently steal a car filled automatic weapons that are part of a guns for drugs deal set up by international terrorists. When Tony runs to Whitey for help, Whitey compounds the problem by sheltering his nephew and lying to Kevin and Frank. Tony also complicates matter by stealing one of the weapons and seeking revenge for the death of Nick and his father, who was subsequently killed by the terrorists.



    The end result is that their lives and the lives of the officers are endangered as Frank is forced to go underground and police must engage the heavily armed terrorists in a shootout.



    I think the show is a really good example for our society where we often wink at what we term innocent youthful indiscretions. Granted this is an extreme result, but many good kids like Nick end up in serious trouble from one bad choice. If their choice is drugs, they sometimes tragically end up dead.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (opening commentary)
      Tom: He was 18 or 19 years old. It was Friday night, and on Friday night when you're 18 or 19 years old, you forget about the rest of the week. You've got a car, a friend, maybe a couple of girls and the weekend's never going to end. Figure of speech, huh? Not for this boy. Whatever Friday meant to him, Monday isn't going to come.

    • (discussing the murder victim)
      Freddie: Nick Perna, 19 years old, graduated Central High, had three priors.
      Kevin: All right, let's hear 'em.
      Freddie: At 14 he stole a bicycle, at 16 he vandalized a teacher's car, it was his Latin teacher, let the air out of her tires and at 17 he was booked for creating a disturbance - at a rock concert.
      Kevin: Sounds like Frank.

    • (regarding an Interpol report)
      Lt. Hogan: That thing doesn't have their home address and phone number does it?

    • (closing commentary)
      Tom: Two friends needed a car to impress some girls. They picked the wrong one and suddenly a whole world of gun runners, drug dealers and bloody terrorists came crashing down on them. An ugly world in which the most important thing you can have is a good friend. Sometimes a friend is just the guy at the corner newsstand who says hello every morning, sometimes it's someone you've known all your life and sometimes it's just a bunch of guys who work together every night.
