Episode Quotes
Briggs: What do you want, Egan?
Frank Egan: Oh, you know me, Briggs? Good.
Briggs: I read the papers.
Frank Egan: Well, then you must read that Augie Gorman testifies to the grand jury tomorrow.
Briggs: Yes, I hope he ruins you.

Dan: We'll exchange Gorman for the girl my way. And one more little thing, Egan. If anything happens to that girl--anything--I'll finish you. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing. I'll find you and I'll kill you. And you know I can do it.

Gorman: You're not the type to shoot a man down in cold blood.
Briggs: Really? (prepares to shoot Gorman)
Gorman: I think you would.
Briggs: You know I would.

Episode References
This is the first of a relatively few "personal" missions for the team, where they take on a mission because one of the team members needs assistance. As such, Bob Johnson does not "appear" as the voice of the tape briefer.
