: Nero. Lenny Nero
: Strickland. Palmer Strickland
: Commissioner Strickland! Lenny Nero
: See, since you shit-canned my career, I don't even have to call you sir. One of life's small pleasures.
: Have you ever been in love with someone who didn't return that love? Mace
: Yeah, Lenny, I have. Lenny
: It didn't stop you from loving them, right? Or being able to understand them or forgive them? Mace
: I guess.
: You're a disappointment, Nero. But you know what disappoints me more? Lenny Nero
: Your sex life?
: I didn't know you were color blind, Max. Max
: It was the only way I could stand your ties.
: Only he doesn't know about me and Faith. So I say to myself, if I turn the job down, he just gets somebody else. And I lose Faith... to coin a phrase. So to buy time, I do the skank. I still gotta do something about Tran... I figure it's him or me... but I can't cap him without a chump to take the fall. And who better than his girlfriend's loser ex-boyfriend... a known criminal... who has been seen hassling them in public numerous times. Lenny Nero
: And who was, regrettably, also your best fucking friend. Max
: No plan is perfect, Lenny. Hey, cheer up. World's gonna end in ten minutes anyway.
: This is not like "TV-only-better"... this is life.
: See... I can get you what you want, I can. I can get you anything, you just have to talk to me, you have to trust me. You can trust me, 'cause I'm your priest, I'm your shrink... I am your main connection to the switchboard of the soul. I'm the magic man... Santa Claus of the subconscious. You say it, you think it, you can have it.
: This tie cost more than your entire wardrobe... it's the one thing that stands between me and the jungle.
: Two million years of human evolution and that's the best idea you can come up with.
: Look... everyone needs to take a walk to the dark end of the street sometimes, it's what we are.
: Bullet-resistant? What ever happened to bullet-proof?
: This is what we laughingly refer to as a plan, right?
: I am the magic man. I am your link to the subconscious. I have what you want. I can get you what you can't have.
: His ass is so tight, when he farts only dogs can hear it.
: Right now his frontal lobes are like two runny eggs.
: I can't believe you had to give them the damn tape. Lenny Nero
: Yeah I know. It was one of my favorites: me and Faith in the hot tub on my birthday.

: Are we impressed yet? Mace
: Yeah... pretty impressed.
: [while immersed in a virtual reality session
] Lenny Nero
: Oooh... a little B&E action.
: [car has been riddled with bullets; antagonists are about to incinerate the vehicle
[with cell phone in hand
] Lenny Nero
: 911 is busy!
: - you ready? Lenny Nero
: Yeah, boot it.
: [to a SQUID-recording-newbie
] I can use this, it's not bad, but, listen honey, you've got to move your eyes slower next time, much much slower. Like... like you're making love with your eyes, ok?
: Hey, Lenny, we made it! Lenny Nero
: Yea, we did. Mace
: You should get going. Lenny Nero
: Yea, see you downtown. Mace
: See you there.
: You're some piece of work, Lenny Nero. You're just calmly backstroking along in the big toilet bowl and somehow you never let it touch you. I mean, between working vice and your current so-called occupation, you must have seen every kind of perversion. But you're just like... some teflon man, you still come out this goofball romantic. Lenny Nero
: It's my sword and my shield, Mace.
: Are we still friends? Mace
: I don't know Lenny. You see, friendship is more than one person constantly doing favors for another.
: When I met Faith, she was just another runaway, giving twenty dollar blowjobs to buy crack. Just another lost soul. But she had this voice... it was scary, like she could take all the hurt and rage of the entire world and lift it up to Heaven in one voice. I helped her. And I promised her I'd always just be there, to protect her. See, it's not about what's in her head, it's what's in mine. I can't let go of the promise. It's like it's all I have left.
