Monica: Starting today, all drug and gang related homicides will go through Vic Mackey. I've posted a list of ten detectives and twenty uni's who will work directly under Vic. You'll be leading a task force designed to learn everything we can about the roughly fifty gangs who operate on our turf. Their membership, their businesses, chains of command. Federal assett forfeiture laws will now be enforced in Farmington. A drug dealer uses a car to distribute drugs, we're gonna seize that vehicle. A gang sells crack out of their back room, we're gonna take that home.
Monica: Explain to me why taking this house was the right thing to do yesterday, and the wrong thing today.
Vic: Yesterday we had to stop the shootings.
Monica: This house was bought with drug money. The mother knew it.
Vic: You said it would be a P.R. nightmare.
Monica: Either it works or it doesn't. To make exceptions, to put a prettier face on it... sounds more like Aceveda than me. (Monica walks out of the home and signs paperwork) Take it.
Dutch kind of takes his sweet time ducking when gunshots are going off in a hospital. Claudette ducks but he stays up just a bit longer. He could have yelled "Shots fired" while crotching?
When Vic's talking to Shane at the food truck, you can see the camera crew in the mirror of the truck.
Claudette: Sherman's march through the hood. Sounds like one step forward, two steps back.
At the end of the Civil War a northern general by the name of Sherman instituted a new form of warfare called "Total War." He marched his men into the South and burned down everything. It essentially crippled the South and ended the war, thus taking a step forward, but after the war the south needed major rebuilding, thus the 2 steps back.
