Dempsey: Listen, this was your idea, you suggested this.
Makepeace: Well you didn't have to have a bloody love affair.
Dempsey: Who says I'm having a love affair? If she's having one with me that don't mean I'm having one with her.
Dempsey: [posing as Johnny Lupino] Working for dames, dealing with dames, it's like broads is taking over the whole damn world.
Mara Giardino: How do you know Lupino?
Makepeace: Oh, it's a game we have in England.
Mara Giardino: What game?
Makepeace: Cops and robbers. We've played together before.
Mara Giardino: Don't get smart.
Coltrane: [Coltrane is out of bullets] The first degree, Dempsey!
Dempsey: [still pointing his loaded gun at Coltrane] Who's Dempsey?
Makepeace: I care about you Dempsey, but if you fire that gun I swear I'll shoot you.
Chas: [about Dempsey] Nothing to stop him going back to the States now, Gov.
Spikings: [glancing at Makepeace] I wouldn't bet on that.
Dempsey: You said you cared about me.
Makepeace: What I said was I would shoot you.
Dempsey: No, I distinctly remember hearing words to the effect that you cared about me.
Makepeace: Well I had to say something to stop you.
