What the hell are you doing?
I'm not doing anything that we weren't doing before. I'm just pumping things up a level.
And what level is that? Prison?
[Shane doesn't answer]
All right, where's my investment now?
It's all tied up in the coke shipment.
That coke that had Tio's guy bleeding from every orifice?

Very very very good show...top 3 series finale ever
The shield is one of the best cop shows of all time, only behind "The Wire." The story line is rich and the cast is just brilliant. Michael Chiklis had a career defining role as the brutal Vic Mackey. Chiklis is so good that somehow you continue to root for the guy after all of the brutal crimes he has committed. He truly played that role to perfection. The show continues to get better as the seasons progress. They build on each other perfectly which sets up the epic and heart-wrenching series finale.
As the seasons build, life truly seems to be on the line for every member of the strike team. Walton Goggins, who plays Detective Shane Vendrell, continually got better as the show progressed and gave mind blowing performance in the last two seasons.
What also makes The Shield so rich are the other characters on the show other than the Strike Team. CCH Pounder was brilliant throughout the series and Detective Dutch Waggenbach and Steve Billings both helped balance out the show.
Season long guest stints from stars Forrest Whitaker and Glenn Close helped make this show a top 10 drama of the decade.
If you like "The Wire" or "The Sopranos" then you need to check this show out...It will be worth your time
