This is the French connection dope, cops seize it, arrest everyone then start taking it out of evidence room, whacking it down to nothing and selling back to us, they basically control the market, they've been doing this for years, they live off it

The French Connection, huh?
I didn't steal it! And I have no connection to Poseidon.

Episode: Whistle Stop (1994)
Remember Gene Hackman, The French Connection? He was on the street, eating pizza, drink coffee, or Fernando Rey with a restaurant. Remember that?
Respectively, Your Honor, the people disagreed. Mr. Becker has financial means and the connections to leave this country quickly and quietly. We ask that he be held without bail.
Ask the counsel, explain her reference to financial means and connections, Your Honor.

Gentlemen, I am gonna tear this town apart. And I'm gonna start with the French Connection ripoff. And the reason I'm gonna start with the French Connection ripoff is because it's a goddamn outrage, and I have already promised myself that it's going to be solved. So what you are gonna do gentlemen, is you're gonna make my word good. The target is cops, the weapon is indictments. And I don't give one infinitesimal fuck if they are indictments that will stick or not. Because to a cop any indictment means a departmental trial, which is a euphemism for fini. End of gun, badge, pension, and pals. So I want cops' names. And if I don't get 'em, I'm gonna drop cops and start on D.A.'s! I want names! We'll start alphabetically. We'll start with A. Give me an A!
