- Lupo: He could have used any one of a dozen pay phones between here and Manhattan.
- Bernard: They're all broken. You try using one lately?
- Lupo: All I know is that my dog likes to piss on them.
- Bernard: I hate dogs.
- Lupo: Oh yeah? Why's that?
- Bernard.: A stupid nickname I had in Catholic school.
- Lupo: St. Bernard. (Bernard glares at him) Lucky guess.
- (Green comes back from being questioned about Bunny Whitby's death)
- Lt. Van Buren: How'd it go?
- Green: It was great. I love being treated like a criminal in my own house.
- Lt. Van Buren: The slugs came back. Matched the bullet that killed John Singer. You shot a guilty man.
- Green: Tell me something I didn't know.
- McCoy: [on Green] The man's been in my office a hundred times. I just kind of assumed he wasn't a murderer.
- Rubirosa: You know Detective Green as well as I do.
- Cutter: Which means I have to be objective. The facts are the facts. If this was a cop you didn't know, you'd be running to the grand jury too.
- Rubirosa: Lupo! I'm guessing there was something that you wanted to talk about.
- Lupo: Looks like I took it to the wrong office.
- Rubirosa: I have my own office.
- Green: I've been a cop, a gambler and 12 other things that don't necessarily go together that well. How do you do it?
- Lt. Van Buren: One foot in front of the other, for 30 years.
- Green: I'll let you know where I land. (shakes her hand) Thank you, Lu.
- Green: (to the DA's after April exposes her secret that he was protecting) Why are you doing this?
- Cutter: We thought you were worth saving.
