Sgt. Kay Howard: If you build it, they will come.
Lt. Al 'Gee' Giardello: Is that right? Where do you suggest I find the space to create... to build this non-nicotine field of dreams? The coffee room? Would that suit you?
Sgt. Kay Howard: You'd give us the coffee room?
Lt. Al 'Gee' Giardello: Sure. I give you permission to post a notice. YOU put up a sign to ban all cigarette smoking in the coffee room.

Lt. Al 'Gee' Giardello: In so many words you're saying I'm too scared to put up a cigarette ban in this squadroom. I watched Crosetti try to quit smoking. Crosetti without smoking is an unecessary terror. You may be right: I may be a coward. But you may be right and needlessly stupid and reckless at the same time. Now, get out of here, both of you.
