The Hard Way

John Moss: You're not gonna learn what it means to be a cop by eating hot dogs and picking your teeth and asking stupid questions. We live this job. It's something we are, not something we do! Every time a cop walks up to a car and has to give a speeding ticket, he know he may have to kill someone or be killed himself. That's not something you step into by strapping on a rubber gun and riding around all day. You get to go back to your million dollar beach house, and your bimbos, and your blow jobs, and you get seventeen takes to get it right. We get one take. It lasts our whole lives. We mess it up (snaps) and we're dead.
Nick Lang: [picking up a tape recorder] Fuck was that great! Can you just say that one more time for me, please?
