The Shield

The Shield is an American crime drama television series starring Michael Chiklis that premiered on March 12, 2002, on FX in the United States, and concluded on November 25, 2008, after seven seasons. Known for its portrayal of corrupt police officers, it was originally advertised as Rampart in reference to the true life Rampart Division police scandal, on which the show's Strike Team was loosely based. The series was created by Shawn Ryan and The Barn Productions for Fox Television Studios and Sony Pictures Television. Several notable film actors took extended roles on the show, including Glenn Close, who was the female lead during the fourth season; Forest Whitaker, who guest starred in seasons 5 and 6; Laura Harring, in season 5; Franka Potente, in season 6; and Laurie Holden, in season 7. The series has received critical acclaim as well as several awards and nominations. It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama in 2002, and the final season won a 2008 AFI Award for best television series. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Shield #50 on its list of the 60 Best Series of All Time. Chiklis won both the Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Lead Actor in a Drama in 2002.

Vic Mackey:
Things went south.

Antwon Mitchell:
Very south. Alabama south.

Vic Mackey:
If I would've had all the information going in, we wouldn't be sitting here.

Antwon Mitchell:
Well, here we are. Little blue and his big black puppet.

Vic Mackey:
What the hell are you talking about?

Antwon Mitchell:
Kavanaugh dimed me, man. Told me you were braggin' about playing me against him and protecting Lemansky to sh*t on his deal.

Vic Mackey:
He's just jerking us off. What do you care? He can't get to you in here.

Antwon Mitchell:
No, but he can touch everyone around me. That crazy ass nigga, he initiated a full-scale DOC investigation of this place. The heat is on. And soon, I won't be filling all the comforts of home.

Vic Mackey:
Look... I'll figure out a way to get you your cash; look into this DOC thing.

Antwon Mitchell:
You've done enough. The deal, and this conversation, are over.

Vic Mackey:
Jesus Christ! I took care of that little thing for you! Now... You gonna tell me that doesn't buy Lem some time?

Antwon Mitchell:
That buys you one more dead cop. I've got Niners in every pen in the state. So, wherever he touches down, it will happen, and you can set your watch to that inevitability.

Vic Mackey:
One of your crew so much as hard-looks my guy, MY reach will get YOU shivved!

Antwon Mitchell:
You got a reach like that? So, why're you sittin' here, talking to me, grey boy, huh?

Vic Mackey:
*Vic jumps across the table, tries to attack Antwon, but is pulled away by a Correctional Officer.*

Antwon Mitchell:
It's okay. It's alright. That's just Detective Mackey's way of saying GOODBYE!
