Ben: That's right, bitch. I have it all.
Dickson: What do you think you have, McCall?
Ben: I have Patrick Stone on tape telling the world that your on the cartel's payroll. Besides myself and Alvarez, there are two federal agents who will back up that testimony.
Dickson: Agent Guerra deals drugs and is implicated in the Fourth of July bombing. Evans killed a former FBI agent and may have conspired with a cartel hitman to murder the only real witness in this investigation. Alvarez would say anything to save his own neck. No, no one's going to believe any of it.
Ben: So you're saying it's Vietnam all over again.
Dickson: Not necessarily. You did break the cartel. Some people might even consider you a hero. But if you level these false accusations against me, things will go very badly for you. Walk away, Detective. That's all you have to do.
Ben: Don't even blink, motherfucker! I've got him! In here!
Alvarez: You're wasting your time, Ben. I got friends high up on the food chain. One call and I'm a free man.
Ben: No! Not this time, Tony. Your friends don't fucking impress me.
Tony: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing man? Jesus Christ, come on, we can work this out! What do you want?
Ben: I want you to pay for all the fucking misery you've caused. This is for Jess, you evil son of a bitch.
Kim: You can't McCall. I want to see Dickson and Waters behind bars. That won't happen without his testimony.
Ben: And they will give this fucker immunity, and he will skate, just like he always does. Well, fuck that. Not this time. No fucking way.
Kim: You know I won't let you kill him.
Eddie: Why the fuck not? There's a shitload of money here. We can split it three ways, and no one will ever know.
Ben: What the hell are you talking about?
Eddie: I'm talking about starting over, man. I'm talking about a clean fucking slate. Look, I owe people money, and this could solve all my problems.
Kim: Jesus Christ.
Eddie: Hey, it's going in somebody's pocket. Some asshole in DC with more juice than us is going to walk away with all of it, man. A payday like this? We'll be set for life, and I'll be done with this shit.
Alvarez: You will never be done, ese.
Eddie: Shut the fuck up!
Alvarez: The FBI paid off all of your paper, puto. And in return, they got all kinds of incriminating shit, and they're going to hold over your head until the day you are dead.
Eddie: What the hell are you talking about?
Alvarez: Ask her.
Ben: What the hell is he talking about?
Kim: It's true.
Ben: How the fuck does Alvarez know about this?
Kim: Because he's a federal informant. He's our man inside the cartel. You can't kill him, Ben.
Alvarez: See Eddie? They got you by the balls, brother. But my offer still holds.
Eddie: You lying motherfuckers.
Ben: You got that right.
Kim: Sometimes you got to choose the lesser of two evils.
Ben: Yeah, but in the end, you're still choosing evil.
Kim: Fine. Do it.
Eddie: We could have been set for life. All three of us. Split three ways.
Reporter: The corruption has apparently spread to the highest levels of the justice department. As Alvarez's testimony implicates Assistant Deputy Director Shane Dickson in the scandal. A special Senate committee is looking into any and all links between the Department of Justice and the Mendoza Cartel. Members of the interagency task force created by Dickson are all under investigation. DEA Agent Edward Guerra is suspected of working with the Mendoza Cartel. He is accused of complicity in the murder of Jessica Stone, the daughter of the FBI agent killed in the bombing and the only witness in the case. Also accused of complicity in the Stone murder is FBI Special Agent Kimberly Evans. In addition, she is being charged with the shooting death of retired FBI agent Kevin Dorleavy. The Deputy Attorney General has promised his full cooperation with any investigation.
Deputy: The special interagency task force has been, on balance, a success. The Mendoza Cartel has been crushed, and Michael Duke, CEO of Peacekeepers International was killed while resisting arrest. His entire organization has been implicated in the smuggling and distribution of illegal military weaponry. More importantly, the tensions between Mexico and the U.S. have calmed considerably. We have come together as allies, working side by side for the common good.
Reporter: Joe Megel, LA Times. Some people believe this scandal has revealed weakness in our domestic security apparatus. Would you care to comment on that?
Deputy: A free country is always exposed to such dangers. The very freedom that protects us also can make us vulnerable. As we all experienced on September 11th. But it is the rule of law and our constitution that is the backbone and strength of our democracy. With tools like the Federal Witness Protection program, we can protect those who step forward like Mr. Alvarez, who testified against his former employers. Because he had the courage to do the right thing, Mr. Alvarez will have a second chance. And isn't that what this country is all about?
