    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the scene where african-american Deke is shot, the stunt-man portraying 'Deke' is a caucasian! This makes for a very obvious 'glitch' in the story!

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Lt. Harrelson: Deke, you remember Bo Pritchard.
        Bo Pritchard: Hey Deke.
        Kay: Sure I do.
        Bo Pritchard: How's my main man's main man?
        Kay: Oh, hanging in there. Say, how are you doing over at Sunset?
        Bo Pritchard: Well, ever since this banana (Lt. Harrelson) got me in S.W.A.T. training, I haven't had time to clean my teeth.
        Lt. Harrelson: From the reports I've seen, you've hit nothing but homers.
        Bo Pritchard: Well, they're getting to assign me. But listen, Deke, how about you retiring? I was his head scout in Nam so long, it'd be funny for me working for anybody else.
        Kay: Sorry, the job's taken.

      • Luca: You know, I was just thinking, all the yells and the protests when we have to use our weapons. Wonder if anybody's keeping count when one of our guys gets burned.

      • Lt. Harrelson: Doctor, if he needs blood, we're the same type.
        Doctor: That's been taken care of.
        Lt. Harrelson: Isn't there anything I can do?
        Doctor: Yes, you can pray.

      • Lt. Harrelson: We go back a long way, Bo. I'm not going to keep you dangling. I'm cutting you loose.
        Bo Pritchard: (nervous laugh) You're what?
        Lt. Harrelson: I'm getting another replacement in until Deacon's ready to come back on duty.
        Bo Pritchard: Come on, Hondo, you're kidding. You've got to be kidding. (long pause) You're not. Hondo, you, you can't do this to me.
        Lt. Harrelson: Consider it done.
        Bo Pritchard: No, wait a minute, I saved your life. Me, Bo Pritchard, I saved your life in Nam. You owe me.
        Lt. Harrelson: Wrong. I used to owe you. Right now I owe my team. We depend on each other. We save people's lives every day, and our own too. You don't fit in, Bo. That doesn't work on a S.W.A.T. team. I'm sorry, I wish you could have made the adjustment.
        Bo Pritchard: It worked in Nam. Didn't it? Didn't it?
        Lt. Harrelson: I told you, that was a long time ago.
