Quotes

I just wanna get closer to George.
- Mike Locken
(laughs) So you find him and you zap him. Will that change Weyburn's mind? Will that give you back your knee and your elbow?
- Cap Collins
No, no, but, uh, wherever they are I know they'll be a lot happier.
- Mike Locken
No, hold, hold it Jerome. Jerome. Don't, uh, don't pull down on a cop.
- Mike Locken
Do what he says, Jerome.
- Fake Officer
Oh, are you crazy? Now you just made me an accessory.
- Mike Locken
Mike, there's a garbage truck blockin' the alley and no garbage in sight.
- Mac
Yeah I know, I wish Miller were in it.
- Mike Locken
Oh, wait a minute. I, I understand it now. Y'see, he wants to go back to die on his own native soil. It's that salmon-up-the-river shit.
- Mike Locken
Shoot him!
- Tommie
He happens to have a gun at your head.
- Mike Locken
You wouldn't shoot an 18 year old girl. Would you?
- Tommie
(gleefully) You bet I would. You bet I would.
- George Hansen
You just retired, Mike. Enjoy it.
- George Hansen
