Секреты Лос-Анджелеса (1997)
James Cromwell: Dudley Smith
Captain Dudley Smith : I wouldn't trade places with Edmund Exley right now for all the whiskey in Ireland.
Captain Dudley Smith : Go back to Jersey, sonny. This is the City of the Angels, and you haven't got any wings.
Captain Dudley Smith : Edmund, you're a political animal. You have the eye for human weakness, but not the stomach.
Ed Exley : You're wrong, sir.
Captain Dudley Smith : Would you be willing to plant corroborative evidence on a suspect you knew to be guilty, in order to ensure an indictment?
Ed Exley : Dudley, we've been over this.
Captain Dudley Smith : Yes or no, Edmund?
Ed Exley : No!
Captain Dudley Smith : Would you be willing to beat a confession out of a suspect you knew to be guilty?
Ed Exley : No.
Captain Dudley Smith : Would you be willing to shoot a hardened criminal in the back, in order to offset the chance that some... lawyer...
Ed Exley : No.
Captain Dudley Smith : Then, for the love of God, don't be a detective. Stick to assignments where you don't have...
Ed Exley : Dudley, I know you mean well, but I don't need to do it the way you did. Or my father.
Ed Exley : A naked man with a gun? Do you really expect anyone to believe that?
Bud White : Get the fuck away from me.
Ed Exley : How's it gonna look in your report?
Bud White : It'll look like justice. That's what the man got. Justice.
Ed Exley : You don't know the meaning of the word, you ignorant bastard.
Bud White : Oh yeah, well you think it means getting your picture in the paper. Why don't you go after criminals for a change, instead of cops?
[punches Exley in the shoulder and then starts to walk away]
Ed Exley : Stensland got what he deserved, and so will you.
[a furious White tries to attack Exley, only to be restrained by the Captain and by several other cops]
Captain Dudley Smith : It's best to stay away from a man when his blood is up.
Ed Exley : His blood is always up.
Captain Dudley Smith : Then perhaps you should stay away from him altogether.
Captain Dudley Smith : [Captain Smith briefs the squad room on Jack Vincennes' death; Exley is standing beside him] Sergeant Vincennes was killed by a .32 slug to the heart. Time of death, approximately 1 a.m. Although he was found in Echo Park, preliminary forensics indicates his body was most likely moved. I want two-man teams to scour that entire neighborhood. Our justice must be swift and merciless. That is all.
Captain Dudley Smith : [Exley starts to leave with the other officers] Edmund, might I have a word with you? We're trying to run down a lead on an associate of Vincennes. The records check has led to a dead end.
Ed Exley : What's the name?
Captain Dudley Smith : Rollo Tomasi. Have you ever heard Vincennes mention him?
Ed Exley : [poker-faced] No. No, I haven't.
Captain Dudley Smith : Well, it's probably nothing. Still, keep your eyes open, eh, boyo?
[Captain Smith exits as Exley glares at him from behind]
Captain Dudley Smith : I admire you as a policeman - particularly your adherence to violence as a necessary adjunct to the job.
Captain Dudley Smith : Hold up your badge, so they'll know you're a policeman.
Captain Dudley Smith : Don't start tryin' to do the right thing, boy-o. You haven't the practice.
Captain Dudley Smith : I doubt you've ever taken a stupid breath. Don't start now.
Captain Dudley Smith : Our justice must be swift and merciless.
Captain Dudley Smith : You're a bit of a puzzlement to me these days, Wendell. You don't seem to be your old cruel self anymore. And I had such grand plans for your future.
Captain Dudley Smith : [interrogation at the Victory Motel] Reciprocity, Mr. Hudgens, is the key to every relationship.
[Before killing Sid Hudgens]
Captain Dudley Smith : Hush hush.
Bud White : There's no god damn bill on me?
Captain Dudley Smith : Four of the witnesses recanted their testimony.
Bud White : Why?
Captain Dudley Smith : They had a change of heart.
Bud White : What about Stensland?
Captain Dudley Smith : Your partner's through. Departmental scapegoat on the chief's orders.
Bud White : A year from his pension. Exley.
Captain Dudley Smith : Exley made his play and got what he wanted. As a politician, he exceeds even myself. The Department needs smart men like Exley... and direct men like you.
Captain Dudley Smith : What's this all about, boyo?
Jack Vincennes : Part of it has to do with a murder. I've been working with Ed Exley on it.
Captain Dudley Smith : You're narco, Jack, not homicide. Since when do you work with Edmund Exley?
Jack Vincennes : Well, it's a private investigation.
Captain Dudley Smith : Ah.
Jack Vincennes : I messed something up; I'm trying to make amends.
Captain Dudley Smith : Don't start trying to do the right thing, boyo. You haven't had the practice.
Captain Dudley Smith : Wendell - I'd like full and docile co-operation on every topic.
