Episode Quotes
(Watching Fontana leave Van Buren's office)
Det. Ed Green: Wasn't sure if he was a cop or a wiseguy.
Lt. Anita Van Buren: Make it work Ed.

DA Arthur Branch: We deposed a mini-Stalin. A man who tortured and killed hundreds of his own people. Who attacked Kuwait and gassed the Kurds.
ADA Serena Southerlyn: So why didn't we go in years ago? And what about the genocides in Rwanda? And the Sudan?
EADA Jack McCoy: How many oil wells does Rwanda have?
