LA's Finest Season 1 Episode 3: "Con Air" Quotes
McKenna: So all this shit, all this damage you have caused is because of that?
Syd: That is 50 times more potent than heroin. Two milligrams is a lethal dose. There’s over 100 pounds here, enough to kill 26 million people. So, no, I didn’t plan any of this. Yes, I burned down the club, but before I did I found that hidden in a backroom. I couldn’t just leave it there.
McKenna: Ray’s dead because of that. Because you stole Fentanyl. And yeah, he made bad choices, but you know what, so did I. And I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Ray and Dante.
Syd: If you think I’m going to weigh Ray’s life against all of the people who could have died because Knox wanted to put that poison on the streets, do the math, McKenna. You, you were right. You are right. There is no way I could get to Knox without affecting the people that I care about.
McKenna: Be real. If I would have told you that I knew Ray…
Syd: Yeah, I would have done things differently. I’m sorry.
Syd: Oh, so we’re just going to pretend like you didn’t walk away from me yesterday, and you haven’t been returning my calls? We’re just gonna pretend it didn’t happen?
McKenna: I don’t know. Are we going to pretend you didn’t go a background check on me, which is like a major violation.
Syd: OK, here we go.
McKenna: Look, after what you’ve done, you don’t get to dig into my life.
Syd: Nobody cares what you did, McKenna. Everyone’s got a past, and for the record, I wasn’t digging into your life. I was looking into Ray Sherman, which led me to his brother Dante, which led me to you. And you shouldn’t be surprised because I saw Dante at your house.
McKenna: Because of you. You are dragging me into your mess. I know what Gabriel Knox did to you.
Syd: I don’t even know what Gabriel Knox did to me. I’ve got the scars, I’ve got the medical records, but when I close my eyes at night, I can’t even see the asshole’s face.
Patrick: I don’t know what I’m going to do without you there giving me…
Howser: Guidance, the wisdom of my years.
Patrick: I worked harder to keep you from giving me shit.
Howser: That’s right.
Syd: So maybe Lowell was taking out a tour and fell out?
McKenna: Right, he owns one of those magical helicopters that keep flying even when the pilot accidentally falls out.
Syd: Or maybe, Lowell was pushed out of his chopper for being a smart ass.
McKenna: Not bad.
Syd: Like a B-.
Todd: Excuse me?
McKenna: You didn’t stick the landing.
Syd: Neither did Lowell.
McKenna: Too soon.
Syd: Too soon?
McKenna: Yeah, a little too soon.
Calloway: I’ll be blunt. Syd’s going to get herself arrested if she’s lucky. Killed if she’s not. You want to help her? Help me.
McKenna: That’s really dramatic.
Carlene: You dodged a bullet.
Syd: Excuse me?
Carlene: Man dense enough to ignore that dress isn’t worth your time.
Syd: You window shopping?
Carlene: I was. I think I found what I’m looking for.
McKenna: What is wrong with you?
Dante: What’s wrong with me? Ray’s fucking dead. Knox’s killing him. When they find him behind this club, this club we were going to open to get out underneath Knox. They’re coming for me next. So, you know what’s interesting about it? They burned him alive because they think he stole some drugs, burnt down the club, but you and I, we both know what really happened, don’t we?
McKenna: Oh god. Dante, I’m… I’m so sorry.
Dante: I know that’s bullshit because you hid it, right, and the feeling was mutual, OK. But that guy always came first for me. You know that. You owe him.
McKenna: So what do you want from me?
Dante: I want you to do your job, and I want you to find who did this.
Syd: I want Knox.
Arlo: Careful what you wish for.
McKenna: What’s up, kiddo?
Izzie: I think we work best with healthy boundaries based on my respectful deference to you as an authority figure.
McKenna: Respectful, really?
Priest: Is today the day? Do I finally get your confession?
Syd: I’d have to be a sinner first.
Priest: I guess I dressed up for nothing. You know you don’t have to suffer alone.
Syd: Maybe I don’t want to drag other people into my suffering.
