Quotes Edit

Tico: Cuando yo bebo, no veo nada.
Curtis: When he drinks, he doesn't see anything.
Briscoe: Me, I saw two of everything.

Curtis: Hey, LT. O'Neal's bank just faxed over his mortgage application. Turns out his wife was insured for fifty grand.
Lt. Van Buren: Fifty grand hardly buys a pot roast anymore.

Sutter: I got bent over a chair by Ms. Ross before. Now I'm getting another tingling sensation in my butt. Why is that?
Ross: Wishful thinking?

"It doesn't matter. This was not a mercy killing. It was murder for profit."
Ross: There's going to be some fallout from this. People are going to think twice about signing their donor cards.
McCoy: Cosgrove was an aberration. I'm not worried about a shortage of organs.
Ross: There'd better not be. Especially livers. Good night, Jack.

Briscoe: What are you complaining about? We're the ones who have to smell you.

Judge Torledsky: Bail, Miss Ross?
Ross: $500,000 on the doctor, your honor, and status quo for Mr. Camacho.
Sutter: I'm sorry. I still don't see why we're here.
Ross: People request the cases against Mr. Camacho and Dr. Cosgrove be consolidated.
Hilburne: On what grounds?
Ross: The People allege they both killed Nancy O'Neal.
Dr. Cosgrove: What? Me and this gangster?!
Hilburne: Your honor, Dr. Cosgrove is a respected surgeon!
Judge Torledsky: Enough! Elias Camacho remains remanded. Bail is set for Donald Cosgrove at $500,000. Now, go yell at somebody else. [bangs gavel]
