One of the best shows ever!

These are pics from my all time favourite show The Shield!Okay second fave after Smallville, Vic Mackie may rock bute Clark and Lex still rule!The season finale was on tv some time back and it was to die for!It ended on such an unexpected twist that even I was shocked!Lucky for me another cable channel is showing the show from season 1!Here is a brief synopsis of the show with some quotes.
The Shield breaks the conventional formula of the cop genre. It plays out in a tough, morally ambiguous world in which the line between good and bad is crossed ever day. The series focuses on the tension between a group of corrupt but effective cops and a captain torn between bringing them down and advancing his own political ambitions. The Shield stars Michael Chiklis (The Commish) as rogue cop "Det. Vic Mackey," leader of the elite Strike Team unit, who is effective at eliminating crime but who operates under his own set of rules. Benito Martinez (Outbreak & Her Costly Affair) plays "Captain David Aceveda," the young precinct head who doesn't like Mackey's tactics and wants to bust him off the force. And the Emmy-nominated CCH Pounder (ER & Boycott), plays "Det. Claudette Wyms," a veteran detective who understands Mackey and knows how to play both sides of the fence.
Vic is a man after my own heart!I love the way he kicks ass and takes names!A true man's man if you ask me!He always has his teams' back no matter what and he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty!
Here are some quotes from this work of art!

Kavanaugh: An Internal Affairs Detective who has made it his life's goal to nail Vic for all the "evil" he has done.
Kavanaugh: Vic Mackey kills cops! He--he deals drugs! He beats suspects! You know what he did yesterday? He--he screwed my ex-wife with the sole purpose… of making this investigation seem like a personal vendetta. He may have assassinated a gang leader. And that’s just all in one day. I wonder what he’s gonna do today? I wonder what he’s gonna do tomorrow?

Vic: Let me remind you of a few things you seem to have forgotten. I didn’t kill Terry. You’ve lost your leverage with Lem. And you’re ex-wife’s p---y… tastes like sweet butter.

When he steps into the interrogation room to question a perv who is holding an 8 year old girl and won't give her up.
Vic Mackey: Good cop and bad cop have left for the day. I'm a different kind of cop.
Needless to say the suspect had the truth beat out of him with a directory.

Vic Mackey: Ay, Mo. Your sister's ass really tastes as sweet as Alvarez here says it does? He wants to know what your momma's putting in the corn muffin

Vic Mackey: Hi. I'm detective Vic Mackey.
Cop: These your men?
Vic Mackey: It depends. What did they do?

Claudette is Detective Holland's partner.Holland does not have a high opinion of Vic, I wonder why?
Claudette Wyms: Right now Vic Mackey may look like a mighty big catch to you. Do the smart thing, son. Cut bait.
David Aceveda: It doesn't bother you, the things he does?
Claudette Wyms: I don't judge other cops.
David Aceveda: Mackey's not a cop. He's Al Capone with a badge.
Claudette Wyms: Al Capone made money by giving the people what they wanted. What people want these days is to make it to their cars without getting mugged. Come home from work and see their stereo is still there. Hear about some murder in the barrio, find out the next day the police caught the guy. If having all those things means some cop roughed up some spic or some nigger in the ghetto... well, as far as most people are concerned it's don't ask, don't tell.

Holland Wagenbach: [about Vic Mackey] Why does everyone like that asshole so much?

Claudette Wyms: The evidence is lacking.
Vic Mackey: So is Dutchboy's dick but I'm not helping with that.

Vic Mackey: Pack up your shit and get on the first donkey back to home.

Shane Vendrell: The truth is like grits, you can't serve it up plain, you got to put a little salt on it.

Vic's answer to Acaveda on why he would file a report in his own time and not during the time the captain wanted.The captain says that Vic is under his command to which Vic says...
Vic Mackey: Maybe in your own mind amigo. But around here, i don't answer to you, not now, not even on Cinco De Mayo!

Vic Mackey: Put your clothes on, get out of here, and change your taste in men.

[Trish wants Shane to go undercover as a gay hooker]
Shane Vendrell: [indicating Ronnie and Lem] Why can't one of them do it?
Trish: They don't look gay enough.

Shane Vendrell: So, if I'm a cocksucker . . .
Ronnie Gardocki: What do you mean "if"?

Vic Mackey: [to Julien about a suspect] He sees the uniform and runs? He did it.
Julien Lowe: [to the back-up cops] Vic's out back trying to get him to put the gun down.
Cop: Hope he doesn't try too hard.

[Shane goes undercover as a gay hooker and comments on a passing truck's wheels]
Trish: Looks like our new guy knows a thing or two about rim jobs.
Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky: [listening in the car] Ha ha... rim jobs.

Claudette Wyms: How'd the Strike Team do?
Trish: They did great.
[indicates Shane]
Trish: That one's a naturally born undercover cum guzzler.
Shane Vendrell: [playfully] Hey, I heard that, bitch.

Vic Mackey: You still got that boyfriend?
Lauren Riley: You still got that wife?
Vic Mackey: No. You still got that boyfriend?

[Vic doesn't do anything and the suspect starts screaming]
Suspect: Help! Help! HELP!
David Aceveda: [walks in] What's going on in here?
Vic Mackey: [confused] Nothing.
[Aceveda glares at him]
Vic Mackey: Really.

Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky: [about breaking into the safe] I don't like this.
Vic Mackey: Well pretend.

Vic Mackey: Since when did you get an ulcer?
Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky: Since the Armenian mob started looking for me.(this one is for you shiroh!)

Vic Mackey: [to the Strike Team] Hey, option one is: we take him alive. But feel free to consider option two.

Holland Wagenbach: When was the last time you saw your dick without using a mirror?

Vic Mackey: You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.
Claudette Wyms: Neither am I.

[Vic is trying to scare a suspect in a third floor apartment]
Vic Mackey: Write what I tell you.
[Vic puts a notepad and a pen in the suspect's hands]
Vic Mackey: L. I. F. E. New word, new word! S. U. X.
[rips off the page and puts it into the lapel pocket of the suspect's shirt, then leads him towards an open window]
Vic Mackey: Looks like you're going to die a bad speller.

[when confronting Shane about how the Strike Team could lose their jobs because Shane had lost the drugs they stole when he called in to his girlfriend's house to get laid]
Curtis 'Lemonhead' Lemansky: We're gonna all crash and burn because of you! I mean, Christ, dude, Amy's not even that hot!

Taylor: Are you gonna hold this third strike over me for the rest of my life?
Vic Mackey: I could lie to you. But I have far too much respect for you as a person. Yes I am!

Vic Mackey: [about Shane's baby, Jackson] Cute kid.
Shane Vendrell: Thanks. He's got his mother's looks.
Vic Mackey: Thank God!

Captain Monica Rawling: Let me guess - you're either with Vic Mackey or you're against him.
Vic Mackey: Keeps things simple.

David Aceveda: You're going to free a murderer so his mob boss can kill him?
Shane Vendrell: It sounded a lot better the way Vic explained it...

Holland Wagenbach: I am mature and distinguished - a lot of young women appreciate that.
Claudette Wyms: You really ought to cut back on the porn.

And the quotes don't end there!Those are just the ones I could get hold of and remember!My birthday isn't far away so season 1,2,3 or 4 DVDs would be appreciated (hint hint!).
On a more serious note a fellow blogger Mocha just lost a good good friend and it would be nice if the same people who gave me support during my loss do the same for her.

Guessaurus said...

Aco - now you are talking.
I am a shield fan from day one - I think we finished season 4 last year, cant wait for 5 to roll around.

Vic is the mutha - that man can kill you with just a look. Remember when he locked these two black dudes in a container, and said whoever came out alive wins - and he came back in the morning. LOL that made me laugh

@Nicko - definitely the favourites as well.

Aceveda got to give a blow job
Julian pretending not to be gay anymore
Shane and his very weird girlfriend
Dutch strangling a cat - LOL he is a kookie for sure... and the office jokes about his manhood - at least he has a sense of humour - and the mind of a serial killer.

Aco you made my day - it was like i had watched an episode of The Shield.

As for you hinting about the DVD boxset LOL shameless...

@Mocha - Pole sana dada.

acolyte said...
