The French Connection (1971)
Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle: All right! You put a shiv in my partner. You know what that means? Goddammit! All winter long I got to listen to him gripe about his bowling scores. Now I'm gonna bust your ass for those three bags and I'm gonna nail you for picking your feet in Poughkeepsie.
[a few scenes later:]
Walt Simonson: Popeye. You still picking your feet in Poughkeepsie?

Walt Simonson: Brooklyn is loaded with guys that own candy stores, two cars, and like to go to nightclubs!
Buddy "Cloudy" Russo: Yeah, but you put this little candy store hustler together with Joel Weinstock and maybe we got a big score!
Walt Simonson: Score, my ass!

Walt Simonson: Buddy, here's the warrant. The court order's in there for the wiretap, the judge gave you sixty 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.
Walt Simonson: [to Mulderig] You know Doyle, don't you, Bill?
Bill Mulderig: Yeah, I know Popeye. His brilliant hunches cost the life of a good cop.
Buddy "Cloudy" Russo: Hey look, if this is the way you're coming in on this, why don't you stay home and save us all a lot of grief?
Bill Mulderig: Because that's my opinion!
Buddy "Cloudy" Russo: Shove it up your ass.

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.
Bill Mulderig: I don't want to get off on the wrong foot, Simonson, just keep him off my back.
Walt Simonson: Just cool it with him. If you have any problems, come to me, I'll handle it. Do me this favor.
Bill Mulderig: I'll be happy to work with him.
Walt Simonson: Okay, he's a good cop, he's basically a good cop, he's got good hunches every once in awhile.
Bill Mulderig: Fine, fine, fine, just keep him off my back.

Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle: Look, I say we keep sitting on Boca!
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.
Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle: Listen, I know the deal hasn't gone down yet. I KNOW it! I can feel it, I'm dead certain.
Bill Mulderig: Last time you were dead certain we had a dead cop.
[Doyle flies into a rage and attacks Mulderig]
Walt Simonson: [as Cloudy Russo and a uniformed officer help him break up the fight] Hey! Break it up! You two break it up! Hold onto yourself, what's the matter with you?
Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle: [restrained by Cloudy] Son of a...!
Walt Simonson: [seething] 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!
