Quotes Edit

Dawson: What would you do? I mean if it was your own son who was left to die slowly in the trunk of a car, would you step aside?
Crowley: If I was ordered to, yes.

Voight: You wanna take me off this case, you're gonna have to put a bullet in my head. You understand?

Voight: Let me be clear. I don't need condolences, I need commitment, from each of you. I'm going to do whatever it takes to find who did this. Anybody not comfortable with that should take the next couple of days off.

Lindsay: Hey, Roger SImpson, Melissa's father is downstairs.
Voight: Al?
Olinsky: We should start drawing straws.

Voight: This meeting's like a coin flip. Am I getting a department commendation or the firing squad?
