  • Trivia

    • Goof: When the officers are looking at the photos from the shooting, Diaz prints a photo to the "Main Bullpen Color Laser". The printer that is on the desk printing out photos is an inkjet, not a laser.

    • Goof: When the girl in the red coat is shot and Andy is sprayed with blood spatter, in the lower right quadrant of the frame, you can see the crew member's hand and bottle spraying Andy with red liquid (fake blood).

  • Quotes

    • (Sams yells at some people who walk in front of his moving car)
      Andy McNally: What? Are you practicing your bad cop routine for guns and gangs?
      Sam Swarek: I haven't decided yet.
      Andy McNally: What's holding you back?
      Sam Swarek: You. Love working with you McNally, can't imagine my life without you in it.
      Andy McNally: Hey, you'll get to wear that hair gel again.

    • Andy McNally: Ya know that talk you were gonna give me?
      Oliver Shaw: What talk?
      Andy McNally: My first day, you said that we were gonna go and get a coffee and you were gonna give me "the talk".
      Oliver Shaw: That's a long time ago.
      Andy McNally: Not really.
      Oliver Shaw: Ok. I'm Oliver. Oliver Shaw. I'll be your training officer until further notice. You don't touch anything in the car until I tell you to. You don't write anything down in your memo book until I tell you to. You don't talk to other people you look at me first. You do as I "say" not as I "do". Now you probably think right now I'm being a bit of a hard ass but if it gets stressed out there I will be because my (pause) my job is to keep you safe. This crest on my shoulder, this represents you McNally and we're both going home today.
      Andy McNally: That's a really good talk.
