Striking Distance (1993)
Det. Nick Detillo: There's an old Italian saying: Never scald your tongue on another man's soup.
Tom Hardy: Yeah? There's an old Irish saying: don't listen to old Italian sayings.
Tom Hardy: How was California?
Danny Detillo: Sunny.
Tom Hardy: Sunny? You've been out there two years and that's all you've got to say?
Danny Detillo: The Simpsons are on an hour earlier.
Tom Hardy: Why did you change your testimony?
Jo Christman: Why do you think?
Tom Hardy: You cheat good.
Jimmy Detillo: You shot your own son? There goes that gold watch
Lieutenant Vincent Hardy: Do you know what my dad used to say? Loyalty before all else exept honor.
Jo Christman: [while lying in bed with Tom] We shouldn't be doing this - we're partners.
Tom Hardy: We should be shot.
Jo Christman: We should shoot each other.
Tom Hardy: Too much paperwork.
Tom Hardy: Maybe you need a drink to ease the pain of being wrong!
Lieutenant Vincent Hardy: Loyalty above all else... except honor.
Tom Hardy: [after being gone for two years, Danny has just sneaked onto Hardy's houseboat in the middle of the night... Hardy believes it to be just another burglar... now hushed with gun drawn] You picked the wrong house to rob, asshole.
Danny Detillo: Who are you kiddin', Tommy? You ain't got nothing worth stealing.
Det. Eddie Eiler: [Eiler comes up to Hardy to unlock his handcuffs after the showdown with Jimmy at the river... Hardy hands the cuffs to Eiler, who shakes his head slowly] I was a real shithead, Tommy. Perhaps you want to take a swing at me.
Tom Hardy: What good would it do, Eddie?
[thinks for a moment, then delivers a right hook to Eiler's jaw]
Tom Hardy: On the other hand...
Det. Eddie Eiler: [Hardy, hobbling on a crutch, arrives at the bridge, where Jimmy is preparing to jump after being arraigned on charges of police brutality on Hardy's own testimony... Eiler is at the bridge] What, you're going to give him a push?
Det. Eddie Eiler: You belong on the river, you fuckin' rat!
Tom Hardy: [Jimmy and Hardy are fighting on the bridge after the boat chase on the river... Hardy has the chain of his handcuffs around Jimmy's neck] You like to jump off bridges?
Jimmy Detillo: No, of course not
[Hardy pulls both of them off the bridge and into the river below]
Tom Hardy: [During a car chase] He sure drives like a cop
Jimmy Detillo: Now we gotta us a game.
Jimmy Detillo: Did you get fucked? Because Tommy's made a living out of fucking his partners
Tom Hardy: [as Jimmy is electrocuted] Who's the best cop now?
Newscaster: The search for the Polish Hill Strangler continues in the wake of the discovery of yet a fourth victim early this morning.
