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]
Hugh Holmes: My name is Hugh Holmes and I like to think of Delano as my town.
Skeeter Willis: [to Tyler] Now listen, Boy, I don't care how long you was a MP. You doin' business in my county now, and I just might go outta my way to show you what that means.

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!

Billy Lee: [Turns around, in tears] Joshua?
[they embrace each other]
Sonny Butts: [Sonny catches Foxy burying a body] You always said you wanted to help... Well, let me tell you something, Foxy baby... You and that shovel just dug me out of a hole deeper than this one... You just saved my neck, old buddy.

Hugh Holmes: [to Billy Lee after the revelation of murders at Foxy's place] It's gonna take a lot of good people to make this place decent again.
Charlie Ward: [Putting his arm around Sonny] Sonny, it's gonna be great having you on the Force. Believe you me. We'll snatch some folks heads sideways around this town.
Sonny Butts: [Grabbing Charlie's wrist] Just don't you ever grab a hold of me, Charlie, and we'll get along just fine.
Charlie Ward: [Shaking] Sure, Sonny, sure.
Tyler Watts: [Doing a search on Foxy's property] It's a graveyard... I can feel it.
Trish Lee: [Chief Watts has come to see the newly elected Governor Lee] Tyler... Hugh Holmes said it would take a lot of good people to make things decent around here again... You're one of them.
