Aiden Burn: [upon seeing a well-endowed stripper] Holy boob job, Batman!
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: You know what my favorite game was when I was kid?
Detective Mac Taylor: Jacks?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Operation.
[He holds up a pair of tweezers and then uses them to remove a bullet from the body of a gun shot victim]
Detective Mac Taylor: His nose didn't buzz red. Well done!
Danny Messer: How's our gypsy cab driver, doc? You bring him back to life so he can just tell us who killed him?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: I haven't attended that seminar yet. But... his fingernails are doing an awful lot of talking.
Aiden Burn: Is that blood?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Yeah. This guy put up one hell of a fight.
Inspector Bill Markoni: Detective Taylor.
Detective Mac Taylor: Inspector Markoni.
Inspector Bill Markoni: You got a second, detective? We need to chitchat.
Detective Mac Taylor: Who can say no to Internal Affairs?
Don Flack: [ushering a reporter and his cameraman out of the crime scene] Excuse me, Cronkite. You can't film here. This is a crime scene.
Morty Sherman: Please, please, please. I was here before the shooting covering the release of the Dove Commission report. I... I'm well within my rights.
Don Flack: You keep filming, I'm gonna give you rights. And lefts. Now take a walk, now. Back to your nest, you vultures.
Detective Mac Taylor: I'd like to talk to you about the Dove Commission report.
Chief Vince Robinson: What about it?
Detective Mac Taylor: I've read it. It implicates that men under you were involved in trafficking drugs with police cars in the summer of '01.
Chief Vince Robinson: Pack of lies.
Detective Mac Taylor: It also documents that two of your officers abducted a prominent drug dealer and dropped him off in a rival dealer's neighborhood in handcuffs, fall of '04. That's just the first chapter.
Chief Vince Robinson: If those allegations were true, I'd be under arrest.
Detective Mac Taylor: Chief, you're number one on the Dove Commission's most wanted list. I'd like to know your whereabouts last night.
Chief Vince Robinson: Lemme tell you something, detective. I don't know what you're up to, but you're going to a very dark place with me.
Detective Mac Taylor: I'm investigating the murder of a man accusing you of countless acts of corruption. That's more than enough motive to kill.
Danny Messer: I'm gonna go out here on a limb, Mr. Arnold, and say the kind of people you do business with - you know, the "What's in your portfolio?" kind of people - they don't take gypsy cabs, either, but your card ended up in one last night. So where were you last night? Come on! What, you want me to subpoena your credit card statements? I can call your wife if you want me to.
Gavin Arnold: Okay. Okay. I went to, uh, Lifestyles last night after work.
Danny Messer: Lifestyles?
Gavin Arnold: It's a strip club over on West 47th. I slipped my card to, uh, one of the strippers.
Danny Messer: Yeah, I'm sure you were just sharing stock tips with her, right? What's her name?
Gavin Arnold: Savannah. But, you know... I don't think it was her real name.
Danny Messer: [sarcastically] Naww... you think?
Antonio Reyes: [finding Danny outside his apartment building] What, did you come here to insult my family some more?
Danny Messer: No, kid. I came to apologize to you. I'm sorry. Look, kid, you know what, when I was a kid, my father and I got into the wrong gypsy cab. I got beat up, my father got beat up. I was ten years old. Still eats at me to this day.
Antonio Reyes: That's not my father.
Danny Messer: I know that now. And I wanted to tell you that your father was a good man, Tony. He was killed trying to save a woman from being raped, and not many guys would do that and he did, all right? There's a lot of honor in that.
Danny Messer: [to stripper whom he wants to question] Gonna need a word. In private. And I don't mean the Champagne Room.
