"Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker's road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There's no other way, but they never learn."

"Ladies and gentlemen, the story you are about to see is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent."
"We could've piled up a hundred years of great policemen and great detectives: men with honor and brains and guts. You tore down every best part of them. The people who read it in the papers, they're gonna overlook the fact that WE got you; that we washed our own laundry and we cleared this thing up. They're gonna overlook all the good. They'll overlook every last good cop in the country. But they'll remember YOU. Because you're a bad cop".

If you mess with me or any of my family, I'm gonna scatter your brains from here to the white plains, sweetheart. Kojack
