Lieutenant Danny Roman: A quick lesson in lying. See, this is what us real cops do: We study liars. Example: If I ask you a question about something visual, like your favorite color, your eyes go up and to the left. Neurophysiology tells us your eyes go in that direction, because you're accessing the visual cortex. So you're telling the truth. If your eyes go up and right, you're accessing the brain's creative centers and we know you're full of shit.
Rudy Timmons: Because once you familiarize yourself with the chains of bondage you prepare your own limbs to wear them. Fuckin' Abraham Lincoln said it, and I fuckin' believe it, so you have got to get me the fuck out! Now.
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: I can't believe this, I'm just surrounded by a room of people who wanna go in there and kill him. This is the guy who call you friend. I got nothing invested in this. I wonder why that is, or maybe someday we'll find out.
Lieutenant Danny Roman: You want my blood? Take my blood.
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: Well I guess you think Butch and Sundance lived too.
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: I once talked a guy out of blowing up the Sears Tower but I can't talk my wife out of the bedroom or my kid off the phone.
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: You hurt one of them, you burn up any currency you have with me. They're all I care about. Getting you out of here alive... a distant second.
Lieutenant Danny Roman: When your friends betray you, sometimes the only people you can trust are strangers.
Rudy Timmons: You know what Nietzsche says: Even the strongest have their moments of fatigue. And I'm fatigued, Danny. I'm just, I'm fucking fatigued.
Rudy Timmons: Why d'you always pick on me? What am I, Charlie Brown?
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: I'm a stranger to you. You have no idea what I am capable of.
Lieutenant Chris Sabian: You think killing a man gives you the right to negotiate with me?
Lieutenant Danny Roman: I'm still alive, motherfucker.
