Inspector Steve Keller: [Upon being awoken at dawn by Stone] Hours like this I might as well have gone to med school.
Detective Lt. Mike Stone: Med school, huh? Going's one thing, gettin' through's another.
Inspector Steve Keller: You pick up one more piece of paper and you're gonna be arrested for obstruction of justice.
Boyd Caldwell: You have no right to intimidate...
Detective Lt. Mike Stone: You wanna hear all about rights? He'll read 'em to ya.
Ralph Bowen, U.S. Senator: Will you accept some advice, Mr. Keller?
Inspector Steve Keller: Sure.
Ralph Bowen, U.S. Senator: Let Fred Marshall rest in peace.
Inspector Steve Keller: That's exactly the same advice I got from Marshall's assistant.
Ralph Bowen, U.S. Senator: And with good reasons.
Inspector Steve Keller: I'd like to know them.
Ralph Bowen, U.S. Senator: Oh, come now. You've seen them all your life. The people love a good smear campaign. They delight in having someone's name dragged through the mud.
Inspector Steve Keller: And that's the same public that's elected you to Washington all these years, isn't it, Senator? Just seems strange that you above all people wouldn't respect their ability to tell the difference between a lie and the truth.
Reid Bradshaw: [Riled in response to Stone's aggressive questioning] You really like your job, don't you, Lieutenant? Gun on the hip, instant authority. Come to a place like this, collar the head man, roust him a little, give him the third degree. Pretty heady stuff, isn't it?
Detective Lt. Mike Stone: Look, Mr. Bradshaw...
Reid Bradshaw: No, you look! Take a look at all this. I laid everything I had on the line to build it from a bankrupt corporation to a big money company while you hid behind the city payroll. The authority I got, I earned. And I'm not about to stand here and listen to loaded questions from somebody who's pulling his clout from my taxes.
