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.

Kosalas is trying to maneuver his cup lid off, and still

hold on to his walkie-talkie.

DONATO (V.O.)

(from radio)

Talk to me left field.

KOSALAS:

(to mike)

Ready sir. Left Field in position.

Cragie pulls a pint of whiskey from his pocket and sweetens

his coffee with a healthy shot. He notices Kosalas, who has

set down the thermos and is nervously moving from leg to

leg.

CRAGIE:

Have a shot, kid. A little nerve

tonic.

KOSALAS:

What's the matter with you?

Cragie grins and raises his cup to drink. His hand shakes

and he has to steady it with the other.

The RADIO CRACKLES.

SPOTTER (V.O.)

(from radio)

O.K., guys, runner on first base.

INT. SPOTTER APARTMENT - DAY

A spotter, KOBAS, covers the scene from an abandoned building

across the street.

KOBAS:

(to walkie-talkie)

Just turning on Paulina.

EDDIE (V.O.)

(from radio)

Double Play, you got him in sight?
