Episode Quotes
Mike Martine: Garvey wants out.
Garvey: Not forever, just for awhile, until things, uh, cool off.
Mike Martine: They're cool now.
Garvey: Come on, it's old news already, Ironside's got Ward's daughter on ice.
Philip Conrad: What's that got to do with you?
Garvey: I got no choice. I got to use other connections. I mean, you're hot. Just for awhile until things cool off.
Mike Martine: I'm cool now, but if you try to cut out on me, you won't believe how hot I can get. (Garvey leaves) It's starting.
Philip Conrad: We can handle bums like Garvey.
Mike Martine: When you see a snowball rolling, watch out for an avalanche.

Ed: What do you know about him?
Caroline Ward: He's like... a quiet ocean, You don't realize how deep you're in till you're in over your head and it's too late.
Ed: It's not too late for you.
Caroline Ward: Isn't it?
Ed: Hey, look, look, I dig this spot you're in. Even if you wanted to testify, you think you're damned if you do or damned if you don't.
Caroline Ward: You're only half right. I'm damned if I don't. Dead if I do.
