[picks up cocaine]
Jake Roenick: And this shit is the ship. It's the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria and you... are fuckin' Magellan.

Jake Roenick: You're a scumbag gangster.

Alex Sabian: Bullshit, you feel responsible for the death of team eight months ago and that's why you're here
Jake Roenick: I didn't do anything wrong a board of inquiry cleared me
Alex Sabian: You didn't do anything wrong but it was your decision that sent them down the left hallway and not the right hallway and out the front door and not the back door and you don't want to make decisions like that again
Jake Roenick: So you may be right, do you want a medal?

Jake Roenick: The threat is over!
Smiley: Are you fucking kidding me, Sergeant?

Jake Roenick: Why did I let her go?

Marion Bishop: I see you've made your decision.

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
Lt. Ethan Bishop: How did you come by a name like Napoleon Wilson?
Napolean Wilson: I'll tell you some time.
Lt. Ethan Bishop: When will you tell me?
[the street gang breaks through the barricade and rush at Bishop and Wilson]
Napolean Wilson: Make that in a minute or two!

[Offering Bishop coffee]
Leigh: Black?
Bishop: For over thirty years.

Wilson: That basement's not a bad place to be if they come at us again. The only way in aside from the vent is through that long narrow hallway. We might be able to hold them back for a couple of minutes... at best.
Lt. Ethan Bishop: We'd be trapped down there. No chance of escape.
Wilson: Well, we're not going to last one minute up here with only eight shots between us. The upstairs is out. It's flat, wide open up there. No cover at all.
Lt. Ethan Bishop: [after a pause; confident tone] Someone will come.
Wilson: A man with faith. That's a rare quality.
[to Leigh]
Wilson: What about you?
Leigh: I've never had much faith in anyone coming to my rescue.
Wilson: Maybe you've been associating with the wrong kind of people.
Leigh: I've worked with police officers for five years.

Wells: Look, they've moved the cars.
Bishop: I can't belive it. They parked them where they were before.
Wells: Why'd they do that?
Wilson: From a distance, the street looks normal. Like nothing happened.
Bishop: Like nothing happened? They gunned down five police officers! A secretary, one prisoner, we kill a dozen of them, and that's nothing happened?
Bishop: Well, where are the bodies?
[Bishop looks down at the ground and notices nothing there]
Bishop: They took them away!
Wells: How'd they do it so fast?
Wilson: Maybe they got the good fairy to help them.
Wells: Oh, you really are a smart-ass!

[last lines]
Lt. Ethan Bishop: You're pretty fancy, Wilson.
Napoleon Wilson: I have moments.

Lt. Ethan Bishop: [looking at the maintenence hole, before Wells goes out] Looks pretty good to me.
Wilson: Looks like hell. It's all we got.

Lt. Ethan Bishop: [shoves cop violently to one side] Get away from him!
[to Wilson]
Lt. Ethan Bishop: It would be a privilege if you'd walk outside with me.
Napoleon Wilson: [deadpan] I know it would.
Lt. Ethan Bishop: [smiles] You're pretty fancy, Wilson.
Napoleon Wilson: [smiles] I have moments.
