Quotes Edit

Voight: You opened an old wound in this city, a church got burned. So you're gonna tell me what happened. Right here. In this room. Today.

Voight: Okay, I've been a cop for a lot of years. There's one thing I hate. I hate it when people blame the black kid. I get it all the time. I'll tell you something, please believe me when I tell you that, it's not gonna happen today because you're gonna tell me the truth about what happened.

Burgess: Night, Al.[pauses] What?
Olinsky: Thanks partner.

Voight: Kenny I brought you here for a reason. You're doing great so far. I expected a little turbulence. But if you ever withhold information from again, I'll bounce your ass right outta here.

Burgess: Stay down! I said, stay down!
Tillman: She broke my arm!
Olinsky: I'll break the other one.

Olinsky: Let me get this correct, you called Tillman to follow up on a witness statement?
Burgess: Correct, but the number was out of service.
Olinsky: And that didn't raise a red flag?

Lindsay: Violent step-father, crazy boyfriend, sleazy boss...Zoe sure had some winners in her life.

Rixton: So you threw a Molotov cocktail into a church. In front of a hundred cops?

Father McSorley: Sergeant, you can speak with the boys on two conditions, inside the church, and no guns.

Rixton: What are we waiting around for? An angel to whisper in the father's ear?

Voight: Father, we're not going to change things by ignoring the victims.

Voight: I understand you're worried about the boys. But I'm worried that things are going to get real ugly, real fast if you don't open those doors.

Father McSorley: Let's be brutally honest, the history of young black men with Chicago police,has not been glorious.

Atwater: Yo, Al, don't you got some sort of beef with Father McSorley

Father McSorley: I'm sorry officers, but unless you're here to pray, you can't come inside.
