Mike Rogo:
You know what it means to be picked out from all the people aboard to sit at the Captain's table on New Year's Eve? Well, I'll tell ya what it means. It means that all your worries about those other women looking on ya is a lot of bull.

Linda Rogo:
He only invited you because you're a Detective Lieutenant. Why don't you just go without me?

Mike Rogo:
And what am I supposed to do at midnight? Kiss the Captain?

Linda Rogo:
Don't knock it. (Linda enters the bathroom and closes the door)

Mike Rogo:
Why don't you admit the real reason? You're still afraid some bum will recognize you. Well that's pretty stupid! You're out of that business now, you're my wife. You can't keep running around pretending that every guy you bump into is a former customer. Linda, you hear me?!

Linda Rogo:
Will you shut up?! I'm busy in here! (Toilet flushes)

Mike Rogo:
You weren't even out on the streets that long! How the hell many guys did you know?! You realize how slim the chances are that even one of these characters is on this boat?!

Linda Rogo:
(opening the bathroom door) You don't have to shout.

Mike Rogo:
I SAID THA-...I said do you realize how slim-

Linda Rogo:
I HEARD WHAT YOU SAID! (sitting down on the bed) Mike? I saw a young officer on deck the other day. And he looked pretty damn familiar! Even with his clothes on!

Mike Rogo:
So he recognized you. So?

Linda Rogo:
But doesn't that bother you?

Mike Rogo:
If it bothered me I wouldn't have married you.

Linda Rogo:
Well first you arrested me six times!

Mike Rogo:
Well I had to figure out some way to keep you off the streets until you married me!

Linda Rogo:
[softening] Come here, you lousy cop.
