I'm a God
Mickey Cohen: "I'm not an educated man, but I've read some history. Every kingdom comes up bloody. Every castle is built on a pile of bones. When I came out here, LA was nothing. Back east I was a gangster, out here I'm god."
The pure arrogance of Mickey Cohen comes out in this clip as he explains that despite not being the sharpest tool in the shed, he does know enough to completely take over the city of Los Angeles and is fully willing to go through whoever stands in his way to do just that.

Leave These at Home
Sgt. John O'Mara: "Leave these at home. Nobody will ever know what we've done. We're not solving a case here, we're going to war."
Referring to their police badges, Sergeant O'Mara explains to his newly formed gangster squad that for this mission, they are no longer cops, they are soldiers fighting a war against evil.

What's Your Racket, Handsome?
Grace Faraday: "What's your racket, handsome?"
Sgt. Jerry Wooters: "I'm a bible salesman."
Grace Faraday: "Want to take me away from all this and make an honest woman out of me?"
Sgt. Jerry Wooters: "No ma'am, I was just hoping to take you to bed."
There's an unmistakable chemistry between Grace Faraday, Mickey Cohen's girl, and Sergeant Jerry Wooters the first time they meet. How close the two will get at that point neither know but it definitely complicates things between the two sides.

You Gotta Die of Something
Det. Navidad Ramirez: "Going up against 40?"
Sgt. Jerry Wooters: "Well you gotta die of something"
Detective Navidad Ramirez is hesitant to join the gangster squad to take down Mickey Cohen knowing that it's an uphill battle. Sergeant Wooters however reminds him that dying is inevitable and this way at least you can go out doing something meaningful.

Swear to God
Mitch Racine: "I am so sorry, Mr. Cohen. It won't ever happen again. I swear to god."
Mickey Cohen: "You're talking to god so you might as well swear to me."
If Mickey Cohen seems like he thinks he's better than everyone else, that's because he does. He even goes so far as to make everyone else know how much of a god he is to the city of Los Angeles and everyone in it.
