Captain Dudley Smith: Have you a valediction, boyo?
Jack Vincennes: Rollo Tomasi.

Jack Vincennes: What's that about?
Sid Hudgens: Eh, we ran a piece last year, "Ingenue Dykes in Hollywood." Her name got mentioned.

Jack Vincennes: Karen, this is Sid Hudgens of Hush-Hush Magazine.
Sid Hudgens: Hellooooo, Karen!
Jack's Dancing Partner: Hello yourself!

Hold up your badge, so they'll know you're a policeman.

Dudley Smith

Sid Hudgens: 'It's Christmas Eve in the City of Angels and while decent citizens sleep the sleep of the righteous, hopheads prowl for marijuana, not knowing that a man is coming to stop them! Celebrity crimestopper Jack Vincennes, scourge of grasshoppers and dopefiends everywhere!' Ya like it, Jackie boy?
Jack Vincennes: Yeah, subtle.

LAPD, shitbird. Get the fuck outta here or I'll call your wife to come get you!

Bud White

Jack Vincennes: Are you sure Golden Boy is up to the task, Cap?
Capt. Dudley Smith: Oh, I think you'd be surprised what the lad is capable of.

What do I get if I give you your balls back, you wop cocksucker?

Bud White

Ellis Loew: Pull him off me, Exley!
Ed Exley: I don't know how.
Bud White: Now, I know you think you're the A-number one hotshot. Well, here's the juice: if I take you out, there'll be ten more lawyers to take your place tomorrow. They just won't come on the bus, that's all!

Come on, don't try this "Good Cop-Bad Cop" crap on me. I practically invented it. So what if some homo actor is dead? Boys, girls, ten of them step off the bus to L.A. every day.

Ellis Loew

Unless you came in here to wipe my ass, I believe we're through.

Ellis Loew

Bud White: The Night Owl case made you. Do you want to tear all that down?
Ed Exley: With a wrecking ball. You want to help me swing it?
