Code of Silence script
Synopsis: In Chicago, honor-driven Sgt. Eddie Cusack (Chuck Norris) and his team stake out a drug exchange involving notorious drug czar Luis Comacho (Henry Silva). Cusack is caught off guard, however, when rival Mafia kingpin Tony Luna (Mike Genovese) and his disguised crew show up, unleash a torrent of gunfire on Comacho's crew and make off with both cash and cocaine. Now Cusack must fight both gangs -- and corruption in his own department -- in order to stop the drug war.

EXT. EL STATION - DAY

At the corner in a beat up Pontiac are officers MUSIC and

BRENNAN. The two rough looking detectives follow Doc's car

through half closed eyes.

They also HEAR Spider's TRANSMITTER. The quality of the

reception improves as Spider and his antennae clear the steel

support structure of the el platform.

DOC (V.O.)

(from radio)

This early bird shit just ain't my

style.

SPIDER (V.O.)

(from radio)

Dig it. Too close to real work for

me.

Doc and Spider talk in a nervous false bravado.

EXT. ALLEY - DAY

Eddie nods to Donato who grabs a walkie-talkie from the seat.

DONATO:

(to walkie-talkie)

O.K. Home Team. Ready in the bullpen.

MUSIC (V.O.)

(from radio)

Copy Shortstop. Double play. We're

with him now.

SPOTTER (V.O.)

(from radio)

Center's in.

SILENCE. Eddie looks at Donato.

EDDIE:

Where's Cragie?

EXT. CEMETERY - DAY

Two cops are against the wall separating the cemetery from

the El. CRAGIE, a weathered twenty-five year veteran; and

NICK KOSALAS, the new kid on the team. Cragie sits on a crate

with a styrofoam cup of coffee.
