From "New Amsterdam: Pilot (#1.1)" (2008)
John Amsterdam: [holds out his gun] Eddie?
Eddie Riley: [pulls out his gun] Don't do this, man. I don't want to have to shoot you.
John Amsterdam: Then don't. It hurts like hell.
Eddie Riley: I didn't kill her, okay?!
John Amsterdam: Yeah? Where the blood come from? What's her name, Eddie?
Eddie Riley: Get on the ground, now! I know how to use this thing.
John Amsterdam: [puts his gun away and makes his way to Eddie] Last time I was shot, it was Hopkins & Allen. XL number six pocket.
Eddie Riley: Now! Get on the ground!
John Amsterdam: Now in those days, bullets didn't have copper jackets so it was like pouring hot water through your veins.
