Tess Trueheart: You'll get Big Boy.
Dick Tracy: Big Boy's on the street and they want to stick me behind a desk?
Tess Trueheart: They believe in you, Tracy. They think if you're chief of police, the city'll be safe.
Dick Tracy: Tess, there's about as much chance of me getting behind a desk as there is of me getting a new girlfriend.
Big Boy Caprice: Police brutality, boys. And this is the fifth time. Lucky for me I don't bruise easily.
Reporter: Mr. Caprice, do you intend to take legal action against the city for false arrest?
Big Boy Caprice: Why should I blame the city for something one man is doing? This Tracy character's unstable. The city should get rid of him.
Reporter: You mean if you don't get rid of him first.
Big Boy Caprice: Who said that?
