Connie Ling: [On the morning news, on TV] I'm standing in front of an East L.A. garage which is the latest link in a chain of six chop shops busted by the L.A.P.D. in the last three days. This is Auto Theft Detective Nick Pulovski. You seem to have gone out of your way to ensure we were here for these raids.

Nick Pulovski: Well, that's right, ma'am. I realize that homicides and splashy robberies get most of the headlines, but it's about time this crime gets the attention it deserves. It's impossible to make a real dent. But it is possible to hurt individual assholes who fuck it up for everyone. Now, I happen to know of a prick that's responsible for the whole fucking operation, and that son of bitch is hurting out there, and I'm fucking liking it.
