[Louis steps into Ted Hoffman's office to announce the arrival of Richard Cross]
Louis Hines: If you're detecting a little "Eau de Brimstone" in the air, it's Richard Cross.
[Richard Cross has just left Ted's office]
Chris Docknovich: What did Cross want?
Theodore Hoffman: To deny that he's HIV positive; and to accuse me of spreading the rumour.
Chris Docknovich: How'd he know we were looking into that?
Theodore Hoffman: Best guess; he's got a mole in the DA's office.
Chris Docknovich: Meaning the rumour is true, or it isn't.
Theodore Hoffman: After Losey, I was prepared to say no. But when Richard Cross tells me there's no smoke, I look for fire.
[Ted is at the police station. He comes face to face with Mitchell Garron, the attorney of the woman who kidnapped his daughter. Garron acts in a very sleazy and despicable manner when he describes how he will get his client off]
Theodore Hoffman: The DA goes after your client; you go after my daughter.
Mitchell Garron, Esq.: As I said, I'm sick that this involves your kid. But you know better than anyone Ted; what you do, what I do, it's all part of the job description. Best to you wife.
Det. Arthur Polson: Now you know how we feel.
