    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jill: I'm not talking about being, am, you know, deliberately cruel, like setting out to hurt somebody, I just mean when it's a policewoman, it seems like you've automatically assumed her job is just to, am, search female suspects and keep records.
        Webster: I don't automatically assume anything. Although I know a lot them that do do that.
        Jill: That's not what the two you, am, you just met are going to do, is it?
        Webster: No, I never said that.
        Jill: You know, acting as bait for a man that's already killed three women is not exactly light housekeeping, is it?
        Webster: No.
        Gillis: That's why Ryker wanted volunteers to, ah, stake out that singles apartment.
        Webster: Look, I agree with everything you say, but I don't know why I'm prejudiced.
        Gillis: OK, I will, ah, tell you. Now you do think that Ryker's a little unfair towards policewomen, hmm?
        Webster: I suppose so.
        Gillis: And you were laughing about it.
        Jill : So, what does that make you?

      • Gillis: Is anything wrong?
        Officer Dawson: Oh, I was just thinking, ah, all I have to do now is enjoy myself while I wait for a guy that likes to kill people, girl people.

      • Lt. Ryker: All right, you men working patrol know what to look for. The rest of us will continue with Officer Conway at the apartment.
        Webster: Lieutenant, do you think that's wise?
        Lt. Ryker: No, I think it's stupid and dumb and inefficient. That's why I am ordering it to continue.
        Webster: All I meant was that we've already lost one officer there, and, ah...
        Lt. Ryker: I am well aware of that Officer Webster, more aware of it than you can possibly realize; because I gave the order. And I am now giving it again. Dismissed.

      • Webster: Dalton there?
        Officer Conway: Hew was, with a scratch on his neck.
        Webster: You know Peg, he's, ah, probably killed four people.
        Officer Conway: And I have no intention of becoming number five.
        Webster: Why don't you ask out of this?
        Officer Conway: Why?
        Webster: Words. Look, I know you well enough to know that I more than like you. I don't want to talk about love but ah, I, I care about you, worry about you, don't want anything to happen to you.
        Officer Conway: You didn't want anything to happen to Annie for that matter.
        Webster: No, but you know what I'm, I'm talking about.
        Officer Conway: We shouldn't wait around here. Let's get back to the precinct.

      • Lt. Ryker: Can I ask you a question off the record?
        Webster: Anything, Lieutenant.
        Lt. Ryker: Well, I try to keep up you know, try to look like I know what's going on, I don't want to offend anyone, I don't want to make a fool out of myself. You know what I'm saying?
        Webster: Yes, I, no, I'm not sure.
        Lt. Ryker: Handshakes, Webster. It seems like every week there's a new handshake. I mean, I go to shake hands with a guy, he slaps my palm, grabs my wrist, makes a fist. I mean I'm starting to wave at people just so I don't look out of step with what's going on. So how do I shake hands with you Officer Conway? (Officer Conway kisses him on the cheek) That's doesn't answer my question but it's nice!
