Frank: Mr. Mayor, I think you have lost confidence in my command and I am prepared to step down.
Mayor Poole: Frank, this morning I paid a condolence call to the family of Fleming's last victims. Visits like that are the worst part of my job, yours too. I've done more than I can count, you probably ten times more than that.
Frank: I find no use in looking at that score board.
Mayor Poole: But it should offer some measure of comfort, Frank, and of hope.
Frank: That's all you can do.
Mayor Poole: Oh, but I didn't have it, Frank. I just couldn't find the words.
Frank: Sometimes there aren't any.
Mayor Poole: We should offer some hope. Hell, I won two terms on that message, but I didn't have it.
Frank: It was a tough week.
Mayor Poole: And this guy, this Evan Fleming. How many more of those are just walking around out there, waiting?
Frank: I don't know.
Mayor Poole: You can't know. I know. Or now I know.
Frank: Change the subject or you'll lose your mind.
Mayor Poole: You know I gave 28 years and the use of both my legs to this city. Loved nearly every single minute of it.
Frank: Oh, come on, Carter. You got a bar in here? Let's have drink.
Mayor Poole: Monday morning I'm submitting my resignation to the City Council and I wanted you to be the first to know. All I ask is that you respect my decision. Please.
