Detective Mac Taylor: Jimmy the cab driver was also known as police officer James Chameides. He was moonlighting as a cabbie out of Five Brothers Garage.
Reed Garrett: No, wait a minute. I thought Chameides was the work of the Cabbie Killer. He was... dumped from a cab.
Detective Mac Taylor: His own cab! After he was brutally beaten and murdered by three men. Vigilante justice. Now, where do you think they got the idea that Jimmy was the cabbie killer?
Reed Garrett: You're not blaming me for this guy's death?
Detective Mac Taylor: I'm blaming you for putting the target on his back.

Detective Don Flack: Look, I know I sound like an idiot. It was a yellow cab. That's all I've got.
Quinn Shelby: Mac, who is Reed to you?
Detective Mac Taylor: He's Claire's son, Quinn. She gave him up for adoption before we met. When he came looking for his biological mother, he found me, unaware that she had died.
Detective Mac Taylor: Who's your source Reed? Who told you about the carvings on the neck?
Reed Garrett: I don't know his name.
Detective Mac Taylor: How do you get in touch with him?
Reed Garrett: He contacts me.
Detective Mac Taylor: What's he look like?
Reed Garrett: I can't tell you that.
Detective Mac Taylor: You can, and you will.
Reed Garrett: Look, when i wanted a story, you stayed true to the code of your office, and now, I'm staying true to mine.
Detective Mac Taylor: This is not a game. An innocent man is dead.
Reed Garrett: What are you talking about?
Detective Mac Taylor: Your blog. You accused a driver named Jimmy of being the Cabbie Killer.
Reed Garrett: I didn't accuse anybody. I reported the information that i was given.
Detective Mac Taylor: Without confirming it!
Detective Mac Taylor: [reading a blog] For weeks I've been investigating the cabbie killer murders with a certain morbid fascination.
Detective Stella Bonasera: This is in real time.
Detective Lindsay Monroe: I'll create a GUI interface using Visual Basic... see if I can track an IP address.
