Dempsey: [holding a live grenade] I never had a partner I could ask this before: you got a bobby pin?
Dempsey: [provoking the psychiatrist] You know, I've always been meaning to ask... I mean, wouldn't it be better if you stretched brains instead of schrinking 'em?
Jimmy: You know there was a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. You know what did them in, don't ya? Curiosity...
[rubs Big Ben's head]
Dempsey: Tough character, the sergeant. You're Royal Army breed them that way?
Makepeace: British, not Royal.
Dempsey: Navy's royal.
Dempsey: You got a Royal Air Force.
Dempsey: Royal Marines.
Makepeace: Royal Marines.
Dempsey: Whats the matter, the queen don't like the army?
Makepeace: Her Majesty happens to be its Commander in Chief.
Spikings: [talking on CB in office] Dempsey, you will be both cooperative and polite. Over.
Makepeace: [standing next to car, receiving] Roger sir, eh, would you please tell leftenant Dempsey to make his own way there?
Spikings: I thought he was with you?
Dempsey: [takes the receiver] I'm right here, chief. You can tell sergeant Makepeace I wouldn't ride with her if she was naked on a Harley Davidson with a rose in her teeth.
[Makepeace grabs back the receiver]
Spikings: What the hell is going on there?
Makepeace: Tell leftenant Dempsey he should be so lucky, over and out.
Dempsey: You know, sometimes I think we're too hard on the boss.
Billy Lucas: Well what do you want? SLR's SMG's GPMG's, mortars, grenades, claymores, sidewinders? You name it, we can supply it.
Dempsey: For our particular purpose, details of which you have no need to know, we require one current model fully armed, fueled and operational tank.
Makepeace: [unable to conseil her surprise] Tank?
Dempsey: I told you: we can only afford one!
Edwards: You don't like me, do you?
Makepeace: Does it matter?
Edwards: Well, I'm used to it. I think you're being a bit hard on Jim, though.
Makepeace: He's used to it.
Edwards: Do you mind some advice? A man like Jim relies on his instincts, Harriet. Now while they're intact, he functions efficiently. But once he's made to question them, once he's made to doubt them, you damage him more than you could know. You damage him and you endanger him. He's a machine you see, a killer.
Makepeace: I think I know Dempsey rather better than you do.
Edwards: I hope so, for his sake.
Big Ben Davis: It's my day off today, you're on today.
Club Bouncer: Yeah, I know.
Big Ben Davis: Then you're gonna have to bounce me!
[picks up a table and throws it]
Dempsey: [on CB] Dempsey, Makepeace, Hot Kat Club. Sounds like your man.
Dempsey: You know how to handle a gun... you been in the army?
Big Ben Davis: They didn't want me. Jimmy was, though.
Big Ben Davis: He didn't like it. I would. I like guns.
Dempsey: Yeah, well eh...
[glances around the room]
Dempsey: You got quite a collection.
Big Ben Davis: I've been saving. Jimmy didn't know.
