Lieutenant Chris Sabian: (while trying to talk his wife out through the bedroom door) 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...

Sabians Wife: That's because nobody is standing behind you with a big gun!

Lieutenant Chris Sabian: That's debatable...

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 a distant second...

Lieutenant Danny Roman: (while trying to talk down a Hostage Taker through a closed door) Yeah, I like animals better than people sometimes... Especially dogs. Dogs are the best. Every time you come home, they act like they haven't seen you in a year. And the good thing about dogs... is they got different dogs for different people. Like pit bulls. The dog of dogs. Pit bulls can be the right man's best friend... or the wrong man's worst enemy. You gonna give me a dog for a pet, give me a pit bull. Give me... Raoul. Right, Omar? Give me Raoul.

Omar: (shouting at his Pitbull that is constantly barking) I fucking hate Raoul! Shut the fuck up, asshole! Son of a bitch won't shut up!

Lieutenant Danny Roman: [to his partner Nathan] Hates Raoul. Farley fucked up the list.

Lieutenant Danny Roman: (talking again to Omar through a door) Yeah... I can dig it, Omar. I had a dog like that... a poodle. She didn't bark, though... She pissed on the floor. I hated that dog. But if I was ever depressed... she'd lay her head in my lap, look up at me with those big old eyes. And even though I thought I hated that dog... I loved her. It's like that, ain't it? That love-hate thing.

Omar: (getting more erratic) No more goddamned talk! I can't wait anymore. I want my wife! I want her up here. Or I'll do our daughter. Listen to me... no more talking. I want that bitch or I'll do the girl.

Lieutenant Danny Roman: Omar, I'm doing the best I can here, man.

Omar: I'm not gonna hurt her. I just want her to see me blow my brains out. I want her to think about that when she's sucking that fat prick's cock.

Lieutenant Danny Roman: (trying to setup Omar by a bedroom window for a sniper shot, starts a joke) Omar... A Marine and a sailor are taking a piss... The Marine goes to leave without washing up... The sailor says, "In the Navy... they teach us to wash our hands... The Marine turns to him and says...

Omar: (in sync with Danny Roman) "... in the Marines they teach us not to piss on our hands...” [sniper takes his shot and wounds Omar in the shoulder ending the siege]

Lieutenant Danny Roman: You working?

Lieutenant Chris Sabian: Sort of. I was negotiating a truce between my wife and daughter.

Lieutenant Danny Roman: That might prove to be easy by comparison.

Lieutenant Chris Sabian: It wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Lieutenant Chris Sabian: (after Danny has just executed a hostage) You want want something from me? You thinking killing a man gives you the power to negotiate with me? Is that because you think you know me? What I am going to do? That I'm gonna give you time, (pulls gun) don't you fucking count on it...

Lieutenant Danny Roman: I still have hostage's, they can still pay for your mistakes...

Lieutenant Chris Sabian: Is that a threat Danny? Cause that's all I need to walk out of here...

Lieutenant Danny Roman: The rules of engagement state that you don't risk a breech, if the hostage taker is willing to take lives in retaliation...and I think I've proved I'm willing to do that...

Lieutenant Danny Roman: (while hiding behind Nebaumas assistant who he is using as a shield) Now leave your badge, guns, cuffs everything on the table

Lieutenant Danny Roman: (a officer on the above walkway jumps out from behind the pillar. (Roman firs a shot that misses his head by inches) That wasn't an accident and neither will the next one that goes in your head, now get out!
