Dawson: I promised her. I looked her right in the eye and told her I'd keep her safe.
Voight: That's a tough check to cash, bro.
Voight: You wanted this to happen, Antonio. You're just too scared to admit it.
Dawson: (Voight wants Dawson to rig the police lineup) Oscar can put Lopez at the van the night his mother was killed.
Voight: Why roll the dice? We've got one shot at this, Antonio. If Lopez walks, he disappears, he goes somewhere else, he kills again. Number three.
