Added DiffLines:

* DirtyCop: Apparently, most of the cops in Chicago were on Jimmy Serrano's payroll. Walsh refused to take bribes, and was thus unfairly drummed out of the force.

* NoIndoorVoice: Jack is forced to resort to this [[spoiler:at the climax, when Marvin tussels with Jack during the sting operation, causing Jack's wire to malfunction, and allowing Cerrano to sneak away with the computer disks. Jack sees Cerrano's thugs moving in for the kill, and in desperation, yells out, "Cerrano's got the disks! ''Cerrano's got the disks! CERRANO'S GOT THE DISKS!''"

* GuileHero: Mardukas. Pretending to have acrophobia so he slow down his time to Los Angeles (it turns out he is a ''trained pilot''), and using Moseley's badge to pretend to be an FBI Agent looking for a counterfeiter so he can get money from store clerks. If he weren't so concerned about Jack's safety, he could have slipped away a lot sooner.
