Det. Chief Supt. Maynon: Jack, the days of one-man bands are over now we're in an orchestra. Every move you made could have been made with the necessary authority, tact and diplomacy. As it is, you've made SCS look like fools and Laker your sworn enemy. And, what's most important, you could have ended up dead like Cowley.
Det. Insp. Jack Regan: [defiantly] Did I get the result?
Det. Chief Supt. Maynon: You're a gambler, Jack. You played a long shot and it came up. That's why we're ringing the changes. No more lone rangers.

Somehow we've got to find a way of making you work as part of a team. Or go away - get right out of it.
