Chiefs (TV Mini-Series 1983) Poster


Billy Dee Williams: Tyler Watts (aka Joshua Cole)


  • Bobby Patrick : [Newton has arrested Tyler, and has him emptying his pockets]  So, what's your name, high roller?

    Tyler Watts : My name's Tyler Watts,

    [slams badge onto counter] 

    Tyler Watts : , but you can call me... CHIEF!

  • Tyler Watts : [Sheriff Skeeter wants to remove a prisoner, and Tyler refuses]  Sheriff Willis, You're welcome here anytime... But whenever you want to remove a prisoner from my jail, you'd better show me some paperwork... That's the way things are done in MY jurisdiction!

    [Sheriff Skeeter storms off] 

  • Tyler Watts : [Tyler is addressing his men first day on the job]  Just pretend you're back in the service, and I'm your commanding officer. And if that doesn't work, just pretend I'm... GOD!

  • Tyler Watts : [to his wife, Liz]  If this thing is as big as I think it is, they won't need an election... they'll carry Billy to the governor's mansion on their shoulders!

  • Tyler Watts : [Addressing his men for the first time]  I see from your records that most of you have prior military experience... That's good since none of you know the first damn thing about police procedure!

  • Tyler Watts : [Tyler comes up behind Billy Lee, who is petting his horse]  Don't worry about old Dapple, Billy... I'll take good care of him, and that's a promise from me to you.

    Billy Lee : [Looks startled, and begins to cry, realizing who it really is]  See that he gets a carrot every day?... He likes carrots.

    Tyler Watts : I will, even if I have to steal one.

    Billy Lee : [Turns around, in tears]  Joshua?

    [they embrace each other] 

  • Tyler Watts : [to John Howell after being released from Skeeter's custody]  Before, I was determined... Now, I'm mad!... No matter what happens in the election on Tuesday... Wednesday, I'm gonna make my move!

  • Tyler Watts : [Skeeter is removing Tyler from his cell]  Where are you taking me?

    Skeeter Willis : I'm not taking you anywhere... You are in the process of escaping.

  • Tyler Watts : [as he is addressing his men on the first day]  If anyone calls in sick, he had better be in the hospital.

  • Tyler Watts : [Doing a search on Foxy's property]  It's a graveyard... I can feel it.
