  • Trivia

    • When Cruz arrives at Rikers, she is put into a general population holding cell. This would never occur with a police officer who would, instead, be placed in adminstrative segregation. TPTB would have us believe that this arrangement was by Finney Sr.'s order; however, staff at Rikers would never allow it to happen.

  • Quotes

    • {at jail}
      Cruz: You can't put me in there.
      Cop: Captain Finney's orders.

    • {to Yokas when IAB comes for her at the custody hearing}
      Roberta: Whatever's going on, I suggest you get outside, quickly and quietly.

    • Davis: If they both had their story straight, the investigation was closed. Then what changed?
      {Finney walks in}
      Sully: Yeah, I wonder.
      Davis: What?
      Sully: Rat Junior shows up here and a month later one of us is behind bars. Nah, I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

    • Finney: I thought she did herself in.
      Sully: You pick that up with your supersonic hearing or is my locker bugged?

    • Finney: Nah, nobody needs either with your mouth.
      Sully: It must wear you out, keeping up with that intellect all day.

    • Yokas: I need to call my lawyer and tell her that I'm not gonna be coming back.
      IAB Cop: Look, we're talking about murder, okay? We're talking 25 to life. You better hope that having to postpone your little family court case is the biggest problem you have at the end of this day.

    • DK: You always do that.
      Walsh: Do what?
      DK: You cut the cake sideways, you eat all the icing, and you leave the dry part for the rest of us.
      Walsh: You pay that much attention?
      DK: And this one eats all the raisins.
      Walsh: He's the coffee cake police.

    • Grace: So, Lieu, what do you know about the new guy?
      Walsh: He needs to buy a vowel for his last name.

    • {about Stu}
      Carlos: I know him.
      Walsh: You do?
      Carlos: Well, I don't know him, I know of him. Interdepartmental basketball. He's their center. This is great.
      Levine: Not for me. I was gonna play center.

    • Carlos: It's great because it means he's ugly.
      Levine: What are you talking about?
      Carlos: Well, excuse me, but some of us are sick and tired of the parade of Joe Hunky Fire Dudes who show up just long enough to get all the women all worked up then slither off into the sunset.
      DK: As opposed to someone who just bothers 'em and won't go away.

    • Carlos: It's like a deal God made with the universe. If a white guy can play ball, he's ugly.

    • {about Stu}
      Carlos: I'm telling you, this guy's gonna be a troll. A tall troll.

    • {to Cruz}
      Prisoner: Wherever I've seen you, I didn't like you.

    • Prison Guard: Cruz! Cruz! Come on, come on.
      Cruz: Speak up, I think a few people in Guam didn't hear you.

    • Prison Guard: I need a next of kin.
      Cruz: I don't have one.
      Prison Guard: Cousin? Aunt?
      Cruz: I understand the concept. I don't have one.

    • Prisoner: If it wasn't her brother, it was somebody else's.
      Cruz: Oh, that's brilliant.
      Prisoner: Are you calling me stupid?
      Cruz: No. Pissing off a cop who's gonna be out of here by five o'clock is…is genius.

    • Prisoner: Well, at least I know how to do some math, bitch. There's a whole bunch of us and one of you.
      Cruz: Fine. I'm scared. I'm gonna be over in the corner trembling, bitch.

    • Kathy: I'm fine, so…never mind.
      Carlos: Well, there's paperwork for "never mind" so you might as well just let us in.

    • {to Carlos and Levine}
      Kathy: Is this your busy season? Or maybe closer to the holidays?

    • Kathy: I guess I wanted to, you know, see what it was like to do drugs. So I took a bunch of pills then I instantly regretted it, but it was too late. I called you guys because I didn't know how long I had and I hate those stories when the neighbors call the police because they smell a bad odor. So if I died, I wanted to make sure somebody found me right away.

    • Kathy: I took ten.
      Levine: What are they?
      Carlos: Antacid tablets.

    • Carlos: So, um, let me get this straight. You thought that you were gonna die from eating too many antacid tablets?
      Kathy: That won't kill me?
      Carlos: Maybe if you're eating them when you're walking out into traffic---
      Levine: Carlos.

    • Carlos: ---or something. Um, actually, you shouldn't exceed the recommended dose of any medication unless you first consult your physician.
      Kathy: Even if I'm just taking them to get high?
      Carlos: Especially then. Yeah, you shouldn't abuse medicine for any reason, ever.

    • {about Kathy}
      Levine: She's obviously suicidal.
      Carlos: Oh, come on. If she wanted to kill herself all she had to do was go---
      Levine: Would you keep your voice down? She doesn't need instructions.
      Carlos: I am not gonna spend the rest of the day at Bellvue because some wack job tried to get high on Rolaids. I'm not.

    • {to Carlos}
      Kathy: I shouldn't have called. I'm fine, really. How are you?

    • Yokas: I want my lawyer.
      Capt. Finney: You don't need a lawyer to be a witness.
      Yokas: Witness?
      Capt. Finney: We all know that Sergeant Cruz murdered Donald Mann. I just need you to confirm this.

    • Rivers: Your Honor, my client has been a member of the NYPD for ten years. She hasn't missed a day of work except when injured in the line of duty. She's not exactly a flight risk.
      Ross: To the contrary, Your Honor. The defendant has a list of civilian complaints lodged against her the size of the Manhattan yellow pages, and she's been the subject of three Internal Affairs investigations. Additionally, she has no living relatives or any other ties to the community. If she has a brain cell she already has a plane ticket in her pocket.

    • Rivers: That's blatantly and demonstrably false, Your Honor.
      Judge Stark: That she has a brain cell or a plane ticket? Sergeant Cruz, do you, or do you not have ties to the community?
      Cruz: Depends on your definition.

    • Judge Stark: What happened to your face?
      Cruz: I…tripped over my ties to the community.

    • Judge Stark: In the meantime, the defendant will be held at the Riker's Island detention center.
      Cruz: You can't be serious.
      Judge Stark: Next case.
      Rivers: Your Honor, permission to approach?
      Judge Stark: Next case, as in the one after this one.
      Cruz: That's a death sentence and you know it.
      Judge Stark: A death sentence without a trial? Who would do a thing like that? I'm a big fan of due process.

    • {about Cruz}
      Capt. Finney: She has a court date in about a month. Meantime, she's vacationing on an island.

    • Levine: Carlos, the woman ate a bunch of pills and now there's a gas leak in her building. Do you see?
      Carlos: I see you're hell-bent on ruining this day.

    • {to Stu about Kathy}
      Carlos: Let me give you a hint. If this woman's alive, don't wait for her to make any sense. You'll be here all day.

    • Levine: She ingested a bottle of antacids earlier today. Convinced Carlos it was recreational.
      Stu: You can get high off antacids?
      Carlos: No. That's the point.

    • {to Cruz}
      Prisoner: Dead bitch walking.

    • Levine: First you "accidentally" swallow a bunch of antacids.
      Kathy: That wasn't an accident. That was a bad decision.
      Levine: Okay. But then you "accidentally" turn the gas on, leave it on with all the windows closed. A person might think you're trying to harm yourself.
      Kathy: I see what you mean, but really, I'm fine.
      Levine: I don't believe you.
      Carlos: Oh, and I'm insensitive?

    • {about Kathy}
      Levine: She turned the burner on "light" mode and then just walked away to lie on the couch. She didn't notice the ticking sound?
      Carlos: Maybe she couldn't hear it over all the voices in her head.

    • {turning around to find Kathy gone}
      Carlos: Where's the nutcase?

    • Yokas: No Circuit City open-box-special, for starters. And I want a witness.
      Capt. Finney: I brought a witness.
      Yokas: No, I want a witness that doesn't file you under "Boss" in his Rolodex. In fact, I want two. And I want a deal.
      Capt. Finney: You want a deal?
      Yokas: Full immunity.
      Capt. Finney: And you'll tell me everything?
      Yokas: Every detail.

    • Monroe: Is that a woman on that ledge?
      Sully: Oh, hell.

    • {to Kathy}
      Sully: Can I be honest with you about something? You're making me a nervous wreck out on that ledge. Can we "not talk" back in your living room?

    • {to Kathy about Finney}
      Sully: All right Kathy, don't get startled, but there's a moron coming to save you.

    • Kathy: Go back down there!
      Finney: No, ma'am. That would ruin my whole hero routine.

    • {trying to get Kathy down}
      Finney: At least I got enough guts to be out here.
      Sully: At least I got enough sense to be in here.
      Finney: Hey, I'm sure he didn't mean it like that, ma'am.

    • {to Carlos about Kathy}
      Levine: Well, are you gonna tell me she was just washing the windows?

    • {to Finney and Sully about Stu}
      Kathy: If you guys don't mind, I'd rather be saved by him.

    • Yokas: The bruises in the photos of Donald Mann's wrists were caused by handcuffs. Sergeant Cruz had handcuffed Donald Mann before I arrived at the scene. She had taken him into custody and was on the way out with him, down to the car to bring him in. To book him. And that's when I shot him.
      Capt. Finney: You mean that when she shot him.
      Yokas: No. I shot him.

    • Capt. Finney: You think you're gonna play me?
      Yokas: You wanted to know what happened.
      Capt. Finney: I want the truth.
      Yokas: I told you the truth.
      Capt. Finney: I want the truth. You're a liar. I want the truth and I want it now.
      Yokas: No you don't. You want Cruz. I am telling you the truth. I shot Donald Mann. I did it because I thought he killed Bosco. I didn't care what happened to me. Cruz was trying to protect me.

    • {to Kathy about killing herself}
      Carlos: Between you and me, you're really not very good at it.

    • Kathy: I'm just so…tired.
      Carlos: Take a nap. Look, you gotta hang in there and see how things are gonna turn out, 'cause you could miss out on something great just because you gave up on it before you gave it a chance.
      {Carlos looks at Levine}
      Carlos: Gotta give things a chance.

    • {about Finney}
      Davis: Gotta give him and "A" for "effort."
      Sully: How about "S" for "stupid."

    • Sully: Finney, I've been doing this since you were a careless night waiting to happen.

    • {to Finney}
      Sully: Listen Junior Hero. I know you think your ass is special because your old man's a honcho. But your old man is a thug, a thief, and a murderer. And nothing you ever do on this job's gonna change that.

    • {to Monroe}
      Capt. Finney: She murdered Donald Mann. Not Cruz, but your good friend Yokas. And if you didn't know that, then what the hell good are you to me?

    • {to Cruz}
      Prison Guard: You do not want to beat up a CO! Especially one who came to tell you that you're out of here.

    • Sully: I'm gonna tell you this story one time. I'm gonna tell you the "see spot run" version and when I'm done telling you, we're done with it. It was a long time ago. There were a bunch of dirty cops who were taking payoff money from drug dealers. About a dozen or so of them. Some you never heard of…your father…and CT Finney. When it became clear that the house of cards was gonna cave in, the rest of the gang had a brainstorm. They'd pin it on the black guy. 'Cause, you know, 'cause that would be an easy thing to do. Your father saw it coming. Decided to head 'em off at the pass. CT Finney got wind of it. You know the rest.

    • Davis: What are you saying? What, Captain Finney killed my father?
      Sully: Your father was going to IAB the next day. We got a bogus call…your father ended up dead. A month later CT Finney's in a nice corner office downtown…You can draw your own conclusions.

    • Yokas: I can't figure this. Why the hell would you go through all that to protect me?
      Cruz: I don't rat out cops.
      Yokas: Look, we're not friends. I don't even like you.

    • Cruz: You know what? I spent the entire day with a bunch of people telling me how much they don't like me. So you wanna fight, let's go. Let's go, let's just get it over with.
      Yokas: I told you that night I didn't want you to be involved.

    • Cruz: I was already involved. He was my prisoner.
      Yokas: And I told you that I would face my punishment---
      Cruz: This isn't about you! I don't rat on cops. It makes no difference who they are or whether I like them or not. I don't rat on cops.
      Yokas: I don't owe you anything, Cruz. I didn't want you to do this.
      Cruz: Fair enough.
