  • TRIVIA (1)

    • An undercover narcotics officer properly addresses Hooker as "four-adam-thirty" over the radio, but goes on to break accepted police radio protocol by using Hooker's real name in a subsequent transmission.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Stacy is about to break some bad news to Hooker)
      Stacy: Uh, Hooker, I've got to talk to you.
      Hooker: I gotta talk to your father. Did you see this? Sometimes I wonder what the brass is smoking. What do you want?
      Stacy: It'll wait.

    • Hooker: Police work isn't black and white, Romano. There's a million shades of gray.

    • Clemons: Romano, question—you were drivin' the pursuit. Why didn't you keep goin' instead of stoppin' for me? You coulda radioed for an ambulance.
      Romano: It was a split-second decision, Tom. Judgments in police work aren't always black and white. They're a million shades of gray. Right, Hooker?
      Hooker: Right, Romano. Wish I had said that.

    • Romano: Rookies. What are we, meat for your table? Numbers to make your arrest records look good?
      Sheridan: Romano, let it alone.
      Narc. Officer: Look, Romano, we're sorry about the rookie.
      Romano: The rookie's name is Clemens. Tom Clemens. And "sorry" isn't good enough!

    • Hooker: There's a young police officer down there, walking a hair between life and death. A message has to be sent out loud and clear—nobody puts their hands on one of ours!
      Sheridan: Sounds like you're buying in, Hooker.
      Hooker: I've already paid.

    • Romano: The man is askin' for information, Eli.
      Eli: Nothin' but jive on [angel] dust, man.
      Hooker: Then I'll take jive until you come up with something else.

    • (asking Romano whether he's told Hooker he can't ride)
      Stacy: Now you tell him, or I'll wrap that [baton] around your ears.
      Romano: I can't.
      Stacy: Why not?
      Romano: Simple. I'm a coward.
      Stacy: But cute.
