Josh: Why didn't you shoot him?
Lawson: (pants) Oh shit. Yeah, good idea.
Leon: (has a photo of a suspect) I could print you one to take home if you like.
Lawson: So what's the deal here? Really? Am I supposed to throw a hissy fit and resign? Is that it?
Kerry: No. That'd be ridiculous.
Kerry: I tell you, Charlie's contact - top shelf.
Lawson: (scoffs) Great.
Kerry: What, you're not getting along?
Lawson: It's not about that, Kerry.
Kerry: Well what is it about? Is it about you, or is it about the squad?
Lawson: It's about both, okay? We don't need him. Get rid of him.
Kerry: (quietly) I can't. I can't.
Lawson: Are you running things or not?
Kerry: Let's just not do anything we're gonna regret later on, okay?
Kerry: (to Charlie) You're really starting to piss me off.
Stella: Michael is my best friend.
Charlie: Are you all rooting each other in this squad?
Kerry: (to Anna) Any more from your Charlie Lewis and he's writing parking tickets in Moe.
Lawson: (about Charlie) I was here long after he arrived and I'll be here long after he's gone.
Josh: So I can't shoot the prick?
Lawson: Well, only if you really want to.
Josh: Do you think Kerry's trying to squeeze you out?
(Lawson shakes his head)
Lawson: You're the guy.
Charlie: I'm not sure what you mean by that, but yeah, I'm him.
