Jesse Stone: Night Passage (2006 TV Movie)
Jesse Stone: I don't think I smell like a brewery. I was drinking Scotch.
Abby Taylor: Have you had much experience with people like Mr. Genest?
Jesse Stone: People in South Central L.A. would keep Joe Genest for a pet.
Jesse Stone: If you come near this woman again, if anything happens to her, or her kids, no matter what, no matter whose fault it is, I will kick you around this town until you look like roadkill. And if you're annoying, like you were today, I just might shoot you.
Jesse Stone: Joe Genest should be kicked in the gonads once a day. It was necessary to get his attention.
Abby Taylor: Do you have anything to say on the matter of your assault on Mr. Genest?
Jesse Stone: The restraining order wasn't working. Think of me as implementing it.
Cop: [flashback] You alright, sir?
Jesse Stone: Yes.
Cop: So, what are you doing here at 4 in the morning?
Jesse Stone: I'm a cop.
Cop: Got a badge?
Jesse Stone: I *was* a cop, I'm leaving town. I just thought I'd stand here for a while 'til I went.
Sandy: [in bar] You're kinda old for me.
Jesse Stone: Everybody says that.
Sandy: Wanna go some place?
Jesse Stone: That's a very nice offer Sandy. But I'm already going some place...
Michelle Genest: You said stuff was legal or illegal. Well, what about it being right or wrong?
Jesse Stone: I'm not in the right and wrong business. I'm in the legal and illegal business.
Michelle Genest: You just don't want to answer.
Jesse Stone: No, I don't mind answering. Actually, that was part of my answer. You and I both know that sitting around here all day smoking dope isn't the right thing to do with your life.
Michelle Genest: Who the hell are you to say what's right for me?
Jesse Stone: The guy you asked. Most people don't have trouble seeing what's right and wrong. *Doing it* is sometimes complicated. But knowing what's right usually isn't so hard. And chasing you out of here is obviously not the right way to help you do the right thing.
Michelle Genest: So why are you still here?
Jesse Stone: Trying to do the right thing.
Abby Taylor: Jesse, what's going in with you and Joe Genest? No shrugging. I asked you a question, and I expect an answer. Are you afraid of him?
Jesse Stone: Joe is stupid and mean, and he doesn't like me. On the other hand, if I had to, I could shoot him just as easy as if he were smart and kind.
Joe Genest: Give me your gun.
Jesse Stone: No.
Joe Genest: Put your hands behind your head.
Jesse Stone: No.
Joe Genest: [cocking gun] Excuse me?
Jesse Stone: I'm not putting my hands behind my head, I'm drinking coffee.
Jesse Stone: [at gunpoint] Oh Hastings.
Hastings Hathaway: Yeah, I was really fond of your, sorry to put you though this.
Jesse Stone: This? This is nothing, I just had to bury my dog.
Jesse Stone: [to his dog] So this guy takes this old dog to the vet. He says, "doc, it looks like hurts when he pee's." Doc says, "how old is he?" The guy says, "12." Doc says, "he's pee'd enough."
Jesse Stone: Not funny, huh?
