Sharky's Machine

Synopsis: Tom Sharky is a narcotics cop in Atlanta who's demoted to vice after a botched bust. In the depths of this lowly division, while investigating a high-dollar prostitution ring, Sharky stumbles across a mob murder with government ties, and responds by assembling his downtrodden fellow investigators (Sharky's "machine") to find the leaders and bring them to justice before they kill off all his partners and witnesses, including Sharky himself.

I don't think you're

going to need the vest.

The last casualty they had in Vice

was a suicide.

You know what I mean?

I don't understand you.

You take a stupid cup.

You got citations up the

kazoo, and you walk...

Sharky, wait.

Um, I'm really sorry.

What can I do?

Have a heart attack.


Have 2, Smiley.

You bimbo.


You told him, Shark.

You want to know what I think?


I've been in this force for 12 years,

and you are the best partner I've ever had.

And that's no shit.

I mean, you're a little crazy, you know?

But I like you,

and, uh, I'm never going to forget you.

I'm never going to forget you, Jojo.

Thanks, Shark.

I appreciate that. I really do.

I mean, 4 years together, right?




This is as far as I go.

I mean, people go further,

sometimes you never see them again,

you know what I mean?


- See you around, Shark.

- See you around, Jojo.

What a putz.

I told you I'm looking.

Hey! Sharky!

So I had an erection

I always get erections when I'm there

When I was a kid,

I got erections when I was there

Oh, I know you love Jackie.

Jackie won't eat his dinner

unless you feed him.

You know you can t go around pulling

your dick out in the park every Monday

Monday's my day off

You gotta work on a hobby,

you know what I mean?

Well, uh, there's a tank

full of fish at home,

but that's not as exciting



Hello, Friscoe.

Been a while. What 8, 9 years?

9 years.


Welcome to the snake pit.

You know, Friscoe,

we used to flush the toilets upstairs...

always wondered where it came to.

Still got that sense of humor.


I hope it stays with you.

That's your place right over there.

Right by the cage.


You can get it organized later.

It's been 6 weeks in a row.
