Quotes

[Regan has just heard that Hargreaves has beaten up Tug Wilson, and is giving him a bollocking for it]
Det. Insp. Jack Regan: There's a routine. There's a reason. You *talk* - you don't kick their tripes in!
Det. Sgt. Robert Hargreaves: They'll laugh at you. It's the toecap they understand.
Det. Insp. Jack Regan: Oh, you're a right one, you are. You kick the daylights out of some cheapskate petty crook who wouldn't say "boo" to a goose. But when you're on a *real* job - when we *need* you to come out fighting - you lose your bottle!
