    • Street: OK. OK, so I tried to take the man (sniper) on my own. But that was my choice.
      Lt. Harrelson: It was not, repeat not, your choice and you almost got yourself blown away for your trouble.
      Street: That's right. I almost got myself blown away, but I made the choice.
      Lt. Harrelson: You don't have that right on this team, Officer Street.
      Street: Now, Lieutenant, that's a right that nobody can ever take away from me. I can see, I can think and I can feel. Now today, I saw that boy and I thought about him losing his father, and I didn't want that to happen.
      Lt. Harrelson: Nobody wants that to happen, any time.
      Street: Well I tried to do something about it.
      Lt. Harrelson: Did you? Did you really? Maybe the exercise of your free will put this whole team in jeopardy. Think about the fact that a team effort might have brought that kid's father out of there completely unharmed. Tactics, discipline, control, that's the way we save lives, there's no other way. We're a team. You're either part of it, or you're not.
      Street: Is that an ultimatum?
      Lt. Harrelson: It's a fact of life.
      Street: OK, Lieutenant, I'll try it your way. But that's never gonna keep me from asking questions.
      Lt. Harrelson: I wouldn't have it any other way. But save the questions until the action's over.
