The sheriff of a suburban New Jersey community populated by New York City policemen slowly discovers the town is a front for mob connections and corruption.

Liz Randone: Why is it that you never got married Freddy?
Freddy Heflin: All the best girls were taken.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: I can't hear you Ray.
Gary "Figgsy" Figgis: Listen to me, I got a check in my pocket for $200,000. I got a chance to start my life again. I don't give a shit about this town, I don't give a shit about that town and I don't give a shit about your fucking justice. Bein' right is not a bulletproof vest, Freddy.
Figgs: Being right is not a bullet-proof vest, Freddy!
Moe Tilden: See sheriff, I got a sticky problem. My jurisdiction ends, in a sense, at the George Washington Bridge. But half the men I watch live beyond that bridge, where no one's watching.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: I'm watching.
Moe Tilden: The case is closed, finished, over! Go to lunch! Go! Hey, go to lunch. Go to lunch! The case is closed. Everybody, get the fuck outta here. Get outta here! The case is fucking closed!
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: What about Babitch?
Moe Tilden: What about him? Fuck him.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: What about Donlan?
Moe Tilden: Fuck him too.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: What about Joey Randone?
Moe Tilden: He fell off a building. Don't you read the papers?
Moe Tilden: Listen, you deaf fuck. I offered you a chance when we could have done something, I offered you a chance to be a cop, and you blew it! You blew it.
Figgs: Look Freddy, I say it's okay to be jealous. You save this girl's life, right? From it, from risking yourself, from saving her sorry ass, you go deaf as a result.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: In one ear.
Figgs: In one ear. Then you have to watch this girl you saved, this beauty queen, marries this cocksucker.
Gary "Figgsy" Figgis: You don't go down Broadway to get to Broadway! You zig! You zag!
Moe Tilden: Can't do anything now! Hands are tied now!
Deputy Bill Geisler: I don't know about Ray, but not everyone in Garrison is a murderer.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: No, they just keep their eyes closed and their mouths shut, just like me.
Figgs: Don't shut me out, Ray! You found us a sweet little town. You got us the low interest, and I'm grateful. But don't forget who it was that you came to two years ago to cover your ass.
Ray Donlan: Get him outta here Freddy.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: Come on.
[as he tries to pull Figgs out of the bar but is pushed away]
Figgs: It's not my fault that you can't look at him! You sit in this chair with your back to 'im. You want it to go away, but I'm still here. In for a penny, in for a pound. Don't shut me out, Ray.
Ray Donlan: What brings you to our fair city?
Moe Tilden: I heard there was a way of life out here. Thought I'd check it out for myself.
Ray Donlan: What are we, like the Amish now?
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: I look at this town, and I don't like what I see.
Moe Tilden: That cupcake makes a mess and we got a case again.
Figgs: Shut the fuck up, would ya, please? Sh - fuck!
Moe Tilden: I gave you a chance to be a cop and you blew it
Joey Randone: What the fuck, Ray? You said PDA was gonna set this guy up, with a new life and everything.
Ray Donlan: You think I'm all that, huh, Joey?
Ray Donlan: You're just a child, Freddie.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: You people are all the same.
Moe Tilden: What you've got here, sheriff, is a town that scares the shit outta certain people.
Ray Donlan: You know the difference between men and boys? Boys bet everything on everything! Boys think every hand is a royal flush! You play cards with a man, he knows his limits.
Frank LaGunda: You're gonna be hurtin', Freddy. You're not gonna know when, you're not gonna know where. You're gonna be hurtin'. You mark my words - I'm watchin' you!
Ray Donlan: I always liked you, Murray. You just sweat too much!
Ray Donlan: See officer, in Garrison, when the car you're gonna tag has got a PDA sticker, I'd advise you to think to yourself, "Hey, that's one of the good guys. I think I'll go catch me a bad guy."
Deputy Cindy Betts: If we didn't pull over P.D., there wouldn't be any violations in this town.
Deputy Cindy Betts: Are you on the job?
Jack Rucker: No honey were commin' from Forest Hills. I'm John MacEnroe, that's Jimmy Conners.
Sheriff Freddy Heflin: How do you think this makes me look.
Ray Donlan: Go home and don't think so much.

Moe Tilden: [narrating] Every precinct has its cop bar - a private club - all blue. For the 3-7 it was the Four Aces, just across the river.
