The Shield (TV Series 2002–2008) Poster


Michael Chiklis: Vic Mackey



  • Vic Mackey : Good cop and bad cop have left for the day. I'm a different kind of cop.

  • Vic Mackey : Well maybe in your own mind, amigo. But in the real world, I don't answer to you. Not today, not tomorrow, not even on Cinco de Mayo.

  • Claudette Wyms : The evidence is lacking.

    Vic Mackey : So is Dutchboy's dick but I'm not helping with that.

  • [Vic is trying to scare a suspect in a third floor apartment] 

    Vic Mackey : Write what I tell you.

    [Vic puts a notepad and a pen in the suspect's hands] 

    Vic Mackey : L. I. F. E. New word, new word! S. U. X.

    [rips off the page and puts it into the lapel pocket of the suspect's shirt, then leads him towards an open window] 

    Vic Mackey : Looks like you're going to die a bad speller.

  • Vic Mackey : I don't step aside. I step up.

  • Vic Mackey : Hi. I'm detective Vic Mackey.

    Cop : These your men?

    Vic Mackey : It depends. What did they do?

  • Officer : You guys have anything to declare?

    Vic Mackey : Just that is great to be back in the States.

  • [Vic doesn't do anything and the suspect starts screaming] 

    Suspect : Help! Help! HELP!

    David Aceveda : [walks in]  What's going on in here?

    Vic Mackey : [confused]  Nothing.

    [Aceveda glares at him] 

    Vic Mackey : Really.

  • Vic Mackey : [to the Strike Team]  Hey, option one is: we take him alive. But feel free to consider option two.

  • Shane Vendrell : It was gonna be a surprise.

    Vic Mackey : It is. A bad one.

  • Vic Mackey : [to Julien about a suspect]  He sees the uniform and runs? He did it.

  • Vic Mackey : Get over it and don't bring it up again.

  • Taylor : Are you gonna hold this third strike over me for the rest of my life?

    Vic Mackey : I could lie to you. But I have far too much respect for you as a person. Yes I am!

  • Vic Mackey : [after he identified Ben Gilroy's body]  How'd he die?

    Medical Examiner : Take your pick. Cirrhosis, malnutrition, official cause was suffocation. Aspirated on his own vomit.

    [looking at a file] 

    Medical Examiner : Christ, this guy was the Assistant Police Chief? What happened?

    Vic Mackey : Take your pick.

  • Vic Mackey : I don't speak ebonics, shithead!

  • Vic Mackey : Until now I've tolerated you. Come near my men again... I'm gonna lose patience.

  • Vic Mackey : Pack up your shit and get on the first donkey back to home.

  • Vic Mackey : You still got that boyfriend?

    Lauren Riley : You still got that wife?

    Vic Mackey : No. You still got that boyfriend?

  • Vic Mackey : [about Shane's baby, Jackson]  Cute kid.

    Shane Vendrell : Thanks. He's got his mother's looks.

    Vic Mackey : Thank God!

  • Vic Mackey : Put your clothes on, get out of here, and change your taste in men.

  • Vic Mackey : You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.

    Claudette Wyms : Neither am I.

  • Vic Mackey : Wipe those smiles off your faces ya shit heads. You don't score points with me bagging twelve year olds.

  • Vic Mackey : Ay, Mo. Your sister's ass really tastes as sweet as Alvarez here says it does? He wants to know what your momma's putting in the corn muffin.

  • Vic Mackey : What the hell are you doing?

    Shane Vendrell : I'm not doing anything that we weren't doing before. I'm just pumping things up a level.

    Vic Mackey : And what level is that? Prison?

    [Shane doesn't answer] 

    Vic Mackey : All right, where's my investment now?

    Shane Vendrell : It's all tied up in the coke shipment.

    Vic Mackey : That coke that had Tio's guy bleeding from every orifice?

  • Vic Mackey : [to Connie's sons' foster parents]  I'm gonna be checking in on him from time to time. I better like what I see.

  • Shane Vendrell : Can I get your autograph, man?

    Vic Mackey : Yeah, like on a confession?

  • Claudette Wyms : You gonna be able to handle him?

    Vic Mackey : Oh, yeah. I'll make him sing.

  • Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky : [about breaking into the safe]  I don't like this.

    Vic Mackey : Well pretend.

  • Vic Mackey : Since when did you get an ulcer?

    Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky : Since the Armenian mob started looking for me.

  • Vic Mackey : Partner up with a criminal? I can name one flaw in that plan.

    Shane Vendrell : Only one?

  • Trish : Better than going home to an empty bed.

    Vic Mackey : Well, I can't help you with that. At least, not tonight.

  • Vic Mackey : [Listening to the Armenians]  Huh... the Armenians... speak Armenian.

  • Vic Mackey : I'll never forget what you guys did for me.

    Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky : Don't worry, we won't let you.

  • Vic Mackey : [to guy selling stuff out of his car]  You having a sidewalk sale and didn't invite us, Taylor, I thought we was on yo mailing list.

  • Captain Monica Rawling : Let me guess - you're either with Vic Mackey or you're against him.

    Vic Mackey : Keeps things simple.

  • Vic Mackey : [after shooting a dog]  Sir, I'm telling you, the kid had no choice. The dog was reaching. It was kill or be killed.

    Captain Monica Rawling : Oh come on, Roy. The dog had a piece, he was gonna use it.

  • Vic Mackey : [to Dutch]  Just attack it like you're hungry. Like the wolf.

  • Vic Mackey : [to witness]  A lot of people wanna know what evil looks like.

  • Vic Mackey : [leaving interrogation room]  Excuse me while I get a Kleenex for the rest of this sob story.

  • Holland Wagenbach : You ever hear of a Canadian super pot?

    Vic Mackey : What, you looking to buy a bag?

  • [Holland asks Vic's help on a case] 

    Vic Mackey : Well, seeing as you and Claudette's Wonder Twin Powers aren't fully activated yet, I'll do you a favor and pick up the slack on this one.

  • Smitty : Why are you guys always coming to me with this shit?

    Vic Mackey : Because you're the last honest guy we know.

  • Vic Mackey : Maybe it would help to recreate the crime: "Ai, Dios mio. I'm burning.". Hey, hey Smitty. Get these two to the morgue ASAP.

    Vic Mackey : Why are you a better deal for me than Rondell?

    Tio : I don't use my own product. Rondell does. More and more.

  • Detective Trish George : You like Chinese?

    Vic Mackey : Sometimes.

  • Detective Trish George : Thanks for making me queen.

    Vic Mackey : Enjoy your kingdom.

  • Lauren Riley : They brought us out here because of a song?

    Vic Mackey : Just think of it as quality time.

  • Vic Mackey : How's your stomach now?

    Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky : It'll be better when this is done.
