Never trust a nigger.

The Westbury my ass! I got him on the shuttle at Grand Central, now what the hell's going on up there?

Buddy, here's the warrant. The court order's in there for the wiretap, the judge gave you 60 days on it. Tell Doyle that Mulderig and Klein will sit in for the Feds. They'll make all the buys. Be sure you keep them informed of everything that goes down. [to Mulderig] You know Doyle, don't you, Bill?

Walt Simonson

Hey Bill, look, do me a favor, give him a chance. He came in here with a little piece of information. I know you worked with him before and had a little trouble but don't get off on the wrong foot, if you have problems, come to me with them, I'll handle it.

Walt Simonson

Just cool it with him. If you have any problems, come to me, I'll handle it. Do me this favor.

Walt Simonson

Okay, he's a good cop, he's basically a good cop, he's got good hunches every once in awhile.

Walt Simonson

Jimmy, give it up. Give it up, it's all over with. If there was a deal, it's gone down by now. We blew it, we blew our warrants, and we blew our cover.

Walt Simonson

Hey! Break it up! You two break it up! Hold onto yourself, what's the matter with you?

Walt Simonson

Jimmy! You've wasted two months on this! No collars are coming in while you two guys are running around town jerking off! Now go back to work! You're off Special Assignment!

Walt Simonson

Yeah, I know that. We got the Westbury covered like a tent.

Bill Mulderig

Last time you were dead certain we had a dead cop.

Bill Mulderig

Yeah, I know Popeye. His brilliant hunches cost the life of a good cop.

Bill Mulderig

Because that's my opinion!

Bill Mulderig

I don't want to get off on the wrong foot, Simonson, just keep him off my back.

Bill Mulderig

I'll be happy to work with him.

Bill Mulderig
