John Randolph: Sidney Green
Frank Serpico : You know that I'm totally isolated in the department. I don't have a friend.
Chief Sidney Green : Oh, don't give me that bullshit about friends. I've been putting cops away for thirty years. My name's an obscenity to every shithouse wall in every precinct in the city.
Frank Serpico : I've observed that, sir.
Chief Sidney Green : Friends! And I fought my way up as a Jew in the department in the days you were supposed to have an uncircumcised shamrock between your legs. I have this nightmare. I'm on 5th Avenue watching the St. Patrick's Day parade and I have a coronary and nine thousand cops march happily over my body.
