"Fastlane: Pilot (#1.1)" (2002)
Wilhelmina 'Billie' Chambers: I need a hard charger who will drop his life and never look back. A face that can get past the rope of a nightclub, and a body good to go at it all night. We spend all our time going after foot soldiers. I want the generals.
Donovan 'Van' Ray: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Wilhelmina 'Billie' Chambers: I'm talking about access. Resources. Doing it from the inside. The ultimate backstage pass.
[Billie pushes a remote control button and a pair of doors open to reveals an old theater filled with dozens of appliances ranging from motorcycles, sports cars, weapons, and various expensive items. Van is stunned]
Wilhelmina 'Billie' Chambers: Welcome to the Candy Store. This used to be a theater before the department took it over to stash all this. Everything you see came off some high-rolling scrote who thought he was too rich for the backseat of a squad car. Normally, it would go to auction. I had an idea. Everthing we seize, we keep. Everything we keep, we use. This is a life of crime, 24/7. You don't drop cover, you never flash a badge. So?
[Van throws his police badge to Billie]
Donovan 'Van' Ray: I'm in. So, what now?
Wilhelmina 'Billie' Chambers: Officer Van Ray is getting transfered to Oblivion County. And in the murder of an unidentified African-American male at the Irwindale Speedway "Van Strummer" is wanted for questioning. The jacket we build will go a long way to re-establishing your crediblity with the girl. That, plus a few key props from here, will get you right back next to her.
Donovan 'Van' Ray: Yeah, I know where to find her.
Wilhelmina 'Billie' Chambers: Wheather she'll do business again, well... that's when I see if I chose wisely.
Donovan 'Van' Ray: You chose wisely.

Donovan 'Van' Ray: Listen, I don't wanna scare you, but you gotta get your game face on, okay? You gotta look mean, just deadlock, like that. All right. Cause I'll be real clear with you. You're 10 years off your home court. Now, I've been on the inside, I know this gray motel, this is my turf. So you just smile pretty because you're the new bitch on the bars. This is the Westside, yo. The West sayeed.
[Van and Deaqu enter their cell to find it full of a dozen rough-looking thugs... all of them black]
Deaqon 'Deaq' Hayes: [smirks] Westside.

[Referring to Cassidy]
Deaqon: That girl's playing you.
Van: Come on, man.

[Referring to Kane]
Van: You saw what he did to her face. You took pictures of it.
Deaqon: So what? Maybe she's playing him too.
[pause]
Deaqon: Look, I feel bad for the girl, all right? She didn't pull the trigger on my brother, but she knows who did. So that puts her on that side of line and us on this side.
Van: You never crossed a double line in your life, right?
Deaqon: I cross it every chance I get. You're thinking of Andre, man.
Deaqon, Van: Dre never crossed a double line in his life.
Deaqon: And he'd tell anyone who'd listen.
[Both laugh]
Van: Man, he'd kick my ass if he knew what I was doing right now.
Deaqon: I wouldn't even have an ass.
[pause]
Deaqon: I missed nine Christmases.
[pause]
Van: I just felt like what happened to Andre was my fault, but I couldn't answer one question as to why he died.
Deaqon: Look, man. I don't like you, but you're good people and you loved my brother. Now we're here to answer some questions and that's what we're going to do. You down?
Van: For Dre.
Deaqon: For Dre, man.
