  • Quotes

    • Busmalis: How do I look?
      Hill: The truth?
      Busmalis: No. Lie.
      Hill: You're very handsome!

    • Detective: You and LeRoy had a little altercation with Bruno at the gym, isn't that right?
      Milles: An alter what?
      Detective: A fight.

    • Glynn: You want Em City back?
      McManus: (in one breath) Let me think it over, yes.

    • Peter Marie: Do you believe in Jesus?
      Cyril: That's a silly question.
      Peter Marie: Why?
      Cyril: 'cos it's not up to me believing or not believing. We don't choose God. God chooses us.

    • Adebisi: I know you have come to destroy me.
      Said: Simon, I don't want to destroy you. I want to help you change.
      Adebisi: That is what would destroy me.

    • Keller: Hey, Mondo! How's it hanging, baby? (to Beecher) How is Brown in bed?
      Beecher: Chris, don't.
      Keller: You should take care of where you stick your dick. That baby is lethal.
      Beecher: You know, I liked it better when we weren't speaking.

    • (Adebesi is interrogating Beecher, trying to find who killed Shemin. Browne slams Beecher's head into a desk)
      Beecher: I didn't kill Shemin.
      Adebisi: Yeah, but you fucked him, though.
      Beecher: Once. He was lousy. (Browne slams Beecher's head down again) So were you, Mondo. (one more head slam)

    • Ryan: Ah, trouble in paradise.
      Keller: But not enough to be of any use to us. You know what we got here, O'Reily? A fandango. And we gotta do something about it.
      Ryan: Hey, I don't like being in the minority, but what can we do? Even these fucking Muslims are kowtowing to Adebisi.
      Keller: Well, we could detonate a few well-placed depth charges.
      Ryan: Whatever you need, K-boy.

    • Norma: I'm not Miss Sally. I work as a secretary at the station. I'm in charge of answering all the letters that Miss Sally receives. When I heard about you escaping, I remembered getting your letters. I thought they were so sweet. I went to Miss Sally and asked her to visit here -
      Busmalis: And she said no?
      Norma: She got angry. She threw Nooter at me.

    • Busmalis: Miss Sally, I gotta tell you, you don't laugh like you do on tv. And while we're on the subject, you don't look the same as on tv. You seem smaller.
      Norma: (pretending to be Miss Sally) The camera adds ten pounds.
      Busmalis: To your breasts?

    • (Busmalis has just given a 'Miss Sally cap)
      Busmalis: Oh, my God. There are guys in here that would kill for this - literally.

    • (Hill has figured out Mobay's secret)
      Hill: Well, goodnight Mobay. Or Officer "whoever the fuck you are."
