Episode Quotes
Ruditsky: Legs Diamond's sadism made him an outlaw among outlaws and he was hated by gangsterdom as much as he was by the police.

Diamond: Another month with you holed up here in the country and I'm gonna have to have my head examined.
Alice: Well that's tough.

Ruditsky: Cut the double talk, Hymie. I'm the one who gets paid for asking the questions.

Ruditsky: (to Diamond) You're one big reason I won't stop being a cop.

Diamond: (to Ruditsky) You can say anything you want about my but don't go casting any aspersions on my breeding.

Diamond: What is this, Ruditsky, a public thoroughfare?
Ruditsky: They tell me this is where they keep the clay pigeons.

Schultz: (to his torpedoes) The party is over. Deliver the mail.
