  • Quotes

    • Danko: Well, you remember that burglary call we took on that auto supply warehouse a couple of Sunday's ago?
      Webster: Yeah
      Danko: Well, it seems that Dave Borden's brother has started calling Jill. He's been trailing her. I think what he wants is for me to change my testimony. It's pretty hard to figure that a 459 could foul up your whole life. It's really been rough on me and Jill. It's bad for me as a cop because I know that it'd stop if told this freak I'd change my testimony at his brother's trial. Ah man, I, I don't know, I haven't been able to sleep thinking about it. Why not let the ape go free? Let him rob a million warehouses. I don't care what he does when I see that look in Jill's eyes.
      Webster: Mike, you can't hang yourself for what you think about doing.
      Gillis: Yeah you're, you're not a machine. You can't bust yourself for not knowing what to do.
      Webster: A guy will think about a lot of things. It's just human. And that's all a cop is, should be, human. Good human sometimes and sometimes, sometimes bad human. You can't expect yourself not to want to get out sometimes.
      Danko: I hear you man. And you're right. It's just that I gotta figure it out for myself. I can't let anything mess up what I got going with Jill.
      Jill: (coming out of the bedroom having overheard the entire conversation) Mike, would you change your testimony?
      Danko: I don't know.
