    Jack Walsh: "I know my rights. You owe me phone calls
    FBI Special Agent Alonzo Mosely: "What should be of paramount importance to you right now is not the phone calls. It's the fact that you're gonna spend ten years for impersonating a Federal agent."
    Walsh: "Ten years for impersonating a Fed, huh?"
    Mosely: "Ten years."
    Walsh: "How comes no one's after you?"

    "Back in the 1600s, Paulaner monks moved from Southern Italy to the Cloister Neudeck ob der Au in Bavaria. “Being a strict order, they were not allowed to consume solid food during Lent,” the braumeister and beer sommelier of Paulaner Brewery Martin Zuber explained in a video on the company’s website.

    They needed something other than water to sustain them, so the monks turned to a common staple of the time of their region – beer. They concocted an “unusually strong” brew, full of carbohydrates and nutrients, because “liquid bread wouldn’t break the fast,” Zuber noted."

    Alonzo Mosely: "Let me tell you something, asshole. I've been working on this Jimmy Serrano thing for about six years; Mardukas is my shot. I'm gonna bring him into federal court, and I don't want any third-rate rent-a-thug who couldn't cut it as a cop in Chicago bringing him to LA on some bullshit local charge. Do I make myself understood?"
    Jack Walsh: "Can I ask you something? These sunglasses, they're really nice: are they government-issued, or all you guys go to the same store to get them?"
