  • Quotes

    • (giving into Gillis' desire to interview Carter in the hopes of turning him into an police informant)
      Lt. Ryker: All right, give it a whirl. You and Webster see what you can get out of him.
      Webster: Ah, Lieutenant, why don't you let Willie handle it? It's his idea.
      Lt. Ryker: A, because you're a team; B, because I think you can probably get to Carter easier than Willie can; and C, because I just made it an order.
      Webster: Why, because I'm black?
      Lt. Ryker: No, not because you're black. Believe it or not, I went through just what you're going through right now. I wasn't exactly born in the lap of luxury either, you know. I know how these street rules can hang on to you. But they don't apply any more, so the sooner you get rid of them, the better. Talk to Carter.
