  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Barker and Dove are confronting the drug seller in front of the semi-truck, the shot cuts away to Casserly lying on the ground, allegedly dead. Because the gun is lying on Casserly's chest, you can clearly see that he is still breathing.

  • Quotes

    • Charles: So, what it's killin' you to lie to her? Get rid of her. No excess baggage. Nothin' that you can't leave behind.

    • Ellis: I met a girl. Um, that's happened to you, right? You ask yourself...
      Charles: Bra clasp is usually in the back, press in, push forward.
      Ellis: Very funny.

    • Ellis: I saw the same shit that you did, Barker. Guy tryin' to get right by his daughter. But is it really our call?
      Barker: I'm not gonna sit here and teach you the difference between right and wrong. But, bottom line-- You don't make it your call, you'll wake up 20 years from now wonderin' why you did any of it. And your life is nothin' but a big joke.

    • Charles: (about Lt. Plank) Cut him lose.
      Ellis: He just shot someone in front of us.
      Charles: Jimmy got shot in the crossfire, cut him loose.
      Ellis: If you want to cut him loose, cut him loose yourself.

    • Charles: (to Ellis) You're too damn worried about impressing me, that you're not focused on the job.

    • Rose: So, where are you from?
      Ellis: Missouri. That's where I went to high school.
      Rose: Are your parents still in Missouri?
      Ellis: No parents.
      Rose: So you were hatched?
      Ellis: (sighs) My mom died when I was five. My dad, well, he went out for a pack of cigarettes...
      Rose: That's tough.
      Ellis: I only wished he started smokin' sooner.
      Rose: It all kinda sounds like a country western song. You know that joke, when you play a country song backwards? You get your wife back, you get your truck back, you get your job back, and then your dog comes home.
      Ellis: I hadn't heard that one, but it's funny though.

    • Ellis: Where are we goin' now?
      Charles: You are gonna go get me a coffee. Black, no sugar.

    • Charles: So you ever heard of Jimmy Casserly?
      Ellis: Is this another test?
      Charles: Not if you know the answer.

    • Ellis: (coming home and seeing Raymond sitting in his apartment) What does everyone have a key to my apartment now?

    • Raymond: Do you really think that if I just leave now that it'll all just go away? There's a job the bureau wants you to do.
      Ellis: Not interested.
      Raymond: Not interested in what? The job or the truth?
      Ellis: My loyalty is to Barker. You know, I thought I made myself pretty clear on the train, to you and your friend. Whatever happened to her anyway, your iceberg girlfriend?
      Raymond: She didn't get you to take the gig. That's what happened to her.
      Ellis: Well, then I guess you'll be joining her. 'Cause you didn't either.
