Yves Perret: There you go thinking again. That will be the cause of your downfall. Try... try to control your fear. These men are convicted killers and fugitives. They won't last long on the outside.

Lopez: Mr. Perret, we cannot rely on the police. I insist...

Yves Perret: Don't insist! Insistent people make me angry. Everything is under control.

[Slams remote]

Yves Perret: [to Requin] Cover your tracks.

Yves Perret: Quicker... and easier. Yes, quick and easy is how you make a cake. Or clean a toilet bowl, or shop... by mail. But quicker and easier is not how you run a multi-million dollar business such as ours.

[dangling Requin off a roof by his legs]

Gabriel Cash: Come on, you meat puppet! Who pulls your strings?

Requin: Piss off! Bollocks to Plan A! I like this! The view's great up here! Heh, heh!

Gabriel Cash: What'd he say?

Ray Tango: Plan "A"'s a loser.

Gabriel Cash: Hold on. Give me a name, Death-Breath, or you're going back to fucking England in a fucking baggie!

Requin: Up yours, arsehole! You ain't worth a toss! Go on, drop me! Do it!

Gabriel Cash: Plan "A" is definitely a loser.

Owen: Your Honor, the defendants wish to change their plea.

[Crowd is stunned. Judge McCormick bangs his gavel]

Judge McCormick: Order! Very well, Counselor. What is the plea?

Ray Tango: Your Honor, may I approach the bench, please?

Judge McCormick: Proceed, Mr. Tango.

Ray Tango: [Gets up, looks at Owen] It's okay.

[Tango approaches the bench]

Ray Tango: Your Honor, I have been a policeman for 12 years, and I think it's the best organization in the country. At times, I've been accused of being too aggressive at taking criminals off the streets. Well, if that's a sin, then I guess I'm guilty. All the cops I've worked with are good cops. They are... doing a tough job. And I only hope that the outcome of this trial is such, that the whole department is not judged by what has transpired here. Thank you.

[Tango returns to his seat]

Judge McCormick: Do you have anything to add, Mr. Cash?

Gabriel Cash: [Nods] Yeah.

Ray Tango: [Grabs Cash's arm] No!

Gabriel Cash: Yeah.

Ray Tango: No-no.

Gabriel Cash: Yeah.

Ray Tango: No.

[Cash gets up]

Gabriel Cash: Mr. Tango has, uh, spoken very eloquently. I wish I could be as forgiving. But I can't, because... this whole thing... fucking sucks! I mean, this is the biggest pile of shit I've ever...

[Crowd applauses]

Judge McCormick: Order! Order!
