A lot of people think this is just a job that you go to... take a lunch hour, the job's over, something like that. But it's a 24 hour deal... no two ways about it... and what most people don't see is just how hard it is to do the right thing. People think if I make a judgment call that it's a judgment on them. But that's not what I do, and that's not what should be done. I have to take everything and play it as it lays. Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes they need to go to jail. And that's a very tricky thing on my part... making that call. The law is the law, and heck if I'm gonna break it. But if you can forgive someone... well, that's the tough part. What can we forgive? Tough part of the job. Tough part of walking down the street.


Denise. Denise the piece.

Do you think they're your friends? They're not your friends. Do you really think she'll be there when things go bad? Huh? When things go wrong? You think again. ****ing Denise. Denise the piece. Oh, you're gonna give me that cherry pie sweet mama baby.

Earl. You don't look that bad. You prick. "****." That's what you used to like to say, right? "****." But you are a ****, Earl. It hurts, doesn't it? Huh? You in a lot of pain? She was in a lot of pain. Right to the end, she was in a lot of pain. I know because I, I was there, Earl. You didn't like illness, though, did you? I was there. She waited for your call. For you to come. I am not going to cry. I am not going to cry for you! You ****, I know you can hear me. I want you to know that I hate your ****ing guts. You can just ****ing die, you ****. And I hope it hurts, I ****ing hope it hurts. Why didn't you call? I ****ing hate you. Goddamn you, you ****ing asshole. Oh, God, you ****ing asshole. Don't go away, you ****ing asshole! Oh, God, don't go away, you ****ing asshole!

Have you ever been struck by lightning? It hurts.

I can't let this go. I can't let you go. Now, you... you listen to me now. You're a good person. You're a good and beautiful person and I won't let you walk out on me. And I won't let you say those things - those things about how stupid you are and this and that. I won't stand for that. You want to be with me... then you be with me. You see?

I lost my gun today when I left you and I'm the laughingstock of a lot of people. I wanted to tell you. I wanted you to know and it's on my mind. And it makes me look like a fool. And I feel like a fool. And you asked that we should say things - that we should say what we're thinking and not lie about things. Well, I can tell you that, this, that I lost my gun today - and I am not a good cop. And I'm looked down at. And I know that. And I'm scared that once you find that out you may not like me.

I love you, Brad - Brad the bartender. You wanna love me back? I'll be good to you.

I need braces.

I really do have love to give; I just don't know where to put it.

I used to be smart, but now I'm just stupid.

I will drop-kick those ****in' dogs if they come near me.

I will not apologize for who I am. I will not apologize for what I need. I will not apologize for what I WANT!

I'll tell you everything, and you tell me everything, and maybe we can get through all the piss and shit and lies that kill other people.

I'm really nervous that you're gonna hate me soon. You're gonna find stuff out about me and you're gonna hate me.
