This is America. Stephanie, who was the only one who came to my father's funeral? Jimmy had a rough month. Hey, go save a kitten in a tree, you fucking homos. You don't even know my fucking name. Terminal ballistics is the study of a projectile
Delahunt, muscle. French, the number one. But of course, the rock star, you-know-who. We've done a briefing book, so read up. I want all ideas Work hard, you'll rise fast. You're in the best possible position Let's go to work. Your old man was a fucking hump from Southie. Baggage handler at the airport, right? Family's all criminals except for the old man, huh? And one priest, since you seem to know everything. Last I heard he was married to a year-old boy, living on a beach in Thailand.
Fucking family's dug into the Southie projects like ticks. Three-decker men at best. You, however, grew up Well, la-di-fucking-da. You were kind of a double kid, I bet, right? One kid with your old man, one kid with your mother. You're upper-middle class during the weeks, then you're hanging I got that right? You have different accents? You did, didn't you, you little fucking snake?
If I was, I'd ask you why you're a statie making 30 grand a year. Tell me, what's a lace-curtain motherfucker like you doing in the staties?
Well, families are always rising or falling in America, am I right? What's the matter, smart-ass, you don't know any fucking Shakespeare?
We have a question. Do you wanna be a cop, or do you wanna appear to be a cop? It's an honest question. Lot of guys want to appear to be cops. Gun, badge, pretend they're on TV. A lot of them just wanna slam a nigger through a window I'm set without your own personal job application, sergeant. Hey, he can't help you. I know what you are.
I know what you are I'm the best friend you have and I'm gonna help you understand something. You're no fucking cop. He's right. We deal in deception here.
What we do not deal with is self-deception. Five years from now you could be anything else in the world. But you will not be a Massachusetts state trooper. You had on your SATs, kid. You're an astronaut, not a statie. You don't have much family. I don't have any family. What's this I hear from Stephanie about you becoming a policeman? Stephanie, who was the only one who came to my father's funeral?
When you say "the family," who do you mean exactly? You always have to question everything, don't you? Maybe it would've done you some good to have some questions from time to time. Are my kids a mess? Is my wife a money-grubbing whore? When my mother dies, we don't have any more connection. It's lovely. You get the high ceilings, the parquet floors. Bathroom is massive. The fridge has got an alarm in it in case you have Not a very funny one.

Oh, cool. Yeah, you intend to have a houseguest. That's cool.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed So what do I do? There's money behind this operation. You won't be paid as a regular cop We can't conceal that you were a trainee.
You'll be convicted of a crime. We're thinking a guilty plea to assault and battery would make sense. Given your nature. You'll do enough jail time to convince anyone this is no setup. You'll be on probation, see a court-ordered shrink You wanna serve the Commonwealth, this is your chance. We need you, pal. You've already pretended to be a Costigan from South Boston.
Do it again. For me. Well, nothing. I know a Sean Costigan down on L Street. Not too bright. Good to see you. Oh, good to see you. Come on in. They said you was in the staties. I couldn't believe it.
I got kicked out, like, four months ago. Yeah, it was in the papers. So you know. And why are we graced with your presence? I brought your mother some pictures of my father. My mother's dead. I'm sorry. Sorry for your troubles. I was at a funeral myself, man. Myles Kennefick. Knew him in school. He was a young guy, you know? It's terrible. It's a shame. What a night.

R is for Ricans P is for pigs Would you shut the fuck up for five seconds, huh? You used to be a cop. When we're working together just limit it to two eight-balls an hour. We're not even supposed to be doing this shit this close to Worcester.
This side of Worcester. Says Costello. God says, as far as you're No, no, he's no cop. He got out of the joint three weeks ago. He talks like his shit don't stink, but he's good people. Well, I knew his father. Uncle Jackie was excellent. Fucking guineas. Cranberry juice. It's a natural diuretic.
My girlfriend drinks it when she's got her period. What, do you got your period? Hey, hey. Do you know me? Well, I'm the guy that tells you there are guys you can hit Now, that's not quite a guy you can't hit So I'm gonna make a fucking ruling on this right now: You don't fucking hit him.
You understand? Yeah, excellent. Fine, fine. I fucking know you. I know your family. You make one more drug deal I'll cut your fucking nuts off. You understand that? Yeah, I do. What are you drinking? A cranberry juice. What is it, your period? Get him a cranberry juice. Hey, fuckhead, that's Jackie's nephew. Get the fuck out of here. Sorry I'm late. Staff Sergeant Dignam is our liaison to the undercover section. His undercover work is extensive. He's here to give us his report. Sergeant Dignam.

You'll hear about them through me or Captain Queenan. You will not ever know the identity of undercover people. Unfortunately, this shithole has more leaks than the Iraqi navy.

We're not here to solve the case of the missing scumbag. We're here to nail Costello. All right, look. We got a guy He set up the whole fucking job and popped Kennefick.
You do not want to miss it if Costello takes a dump. We'd miss less if you made your informants available to us and the Bureau. Without asking for too many details, do you have anyone in with Costello now? Maybe not. Maybe fuck yourself. My theory on Feds is they're like mushrooms. Feed them shit and keep them in the dark.
You girls have a good day. Normally he's a very nice guy. Don't judge him from this meeting alone. Now, Mrs. Kennefick, I knew your son. I knew Myles. He was younger than me, but he was behind me in school. I wanna get these people who did this to him. Would you like to help us? You wanna help catch the people If he was killed, he probably did something wrong.
But not the robbery. That's not wrong. He did something else wrong? Wave to your girlfriend, honey. I mean, fuck yourself. I need a cup of coffee. You making a house call? Have I seen you professionally? No, no. No, I know who you are, though. I know. Guys gotta use their service revolver in the course of duty No, no, I know how it goes.

Can I meet you for lunch? All right, see you then. Who's the lead detective? He's a lox. Get the cops to look at Jimmy Pappas for the hit. He had nothing to do with it Look in his car, you'll find the gun that did it, registered, official.
In the trunk or the glove compartment? Hey, you wanna see some dead guys? Hey, this will get Captain Ellerby on the 6: No wonder you get ahead. Have a seat, Bill. Do you know John Lennon? Yeah, sure, he was the president before Lincoln. Lennon said: You give me a fucking tuba, I'll get you something out of it.
I'd like to squeeze some fucking money out of it. Too bad. If you'll indulge me Now what? Choir practice. Choir practice The point I'm making with John Lennon is For instance I look at you and I think: What could I use you for? Get rid of this. Put it downstairs. Go ahead, thank you. Maybe we could work something out. It was nice the way you asked the guy I hope this don't shake Rita up. As I remember, she ain't that sentimental. That was quick. You think he's dead already? We have to do it by phone.
I won't do it No wires. We'll probably be at war with the Chinese in odd years Microprocessors, chips, computer parts. Anybody says anything about anything like that So who did the two guys from Providence? Jimmy Pappas.
What happened to Jimmy Pappas? Jimmy had a rough month. Jimmy had a heart attack in jail I believe it's been in the papers. You seem quite happy with that result. It's a fucking result. Yeah, but cui bono? Who benefits? Cui gives a shit? It's got a frigging bow on it. I think you are a cop, my son. I don't see none. There's no such thing as a license, of course.

The guy don't need any fucking teeth anyway. It's a small surveillance subunit, but it's mine. I didn't take this job to fuck up or let anyone else fuck up.
I handpicked this group. You're my A team. Now, our prim Hi, Captain. This crazy fuck You're gonna give me shit? It wasn't for no reason, Frank. He reached into his coat. I don't know if he's a bookie or what he's doing.
Well, you do know what a bookie does, don't you? Yeah, he pays you. Queenan's compartmentalizing everything in SIU I don't trust half the troopers out there anymore.
Bottom line We think Costello's got a rat in the state police. Do we have direct access to Queenan's undercovers? No, no, not presently. But I'm working on that. Here, Bill, this is for you. From now on, call the bar, ask for Mikey.

Last year, nearly half of nominated screenplays were available online which you can find here. Only Warner Bros and Picture House studios put up their own scripts on studio sites. The winners for best adapted screenplay and best original screenplay last year just so happened to be the two scripts that were available online prior to the voting.
Scorcese is at his best and truly deserves Oscar for this film. However, some in the theater with me who had seen Infernal Affairs did say that Departed did not live up to the original.
