Quotes Edit

Voight: Look Kim, I couldn't give a damn about who you sleep with, but I care a whole lot about who you share our information with.

Burgess: Whether or not you agree with his politics, he's clean. Northwestern. Served in the marines. Active in his church. Married 17 years with two kids.
Dawson: Yeah, 'cause church-going men never cheat on their wives.
