2106: My computer says this call came in at 21:46. How come you waited an hour to give it to me?
Unidentified Caller: She didn’t know if you could handle it.
Unidentified Caller number two: Shut up, psycho.
2106: There some reason for that hour delay, squad?
Dispatcher: Ah, I don’t know the reason why you didn’t get it from the third watch, but I can speak for the first watch, and that is because we had priority jobs to get out before this one.
2106:How are we gonna do our [static] job, that’s what!
Dispatcher: OK, well, I don’t want a verbal confrontation today. If you need your sergeant over there, I’ll be more than happy to send your sergeant.
Unidentified caller:Tell it like it is!
Unidentified caller number two: Yeah, whatever.

854: Squad, it sounds like he’s in the apartment kickin’ the door in.
Unidentified caller: Maybe he was trying to get in.
Dispatcher: 854, she just told us that he kicked in the back door trying to get in.
854: You said he kicked in the door, right?
Dispatcher: That’s what she told us.
854: But he’s still trying to get in? What’s he got, a screen door he can’t get through?
Unidentified caller: Smitty, you know better than to try to figure out the stuff that goes on these days.
Unidentified caller number two: Well, you know how it is. You know Smitty’s a philosopher.
Unidentified caller: I know, I know. He’s got to question everything.
Unidentified caller number three: It’s called c-a-p, cap. I mean, c-a-p-s, CAPS.
