Dirty Harry 2: Magnum Force



This is a .44 Magnum,

the most powerful handgun in the world.

And it could blow your head clean off.

Do you feel lucky?

Mr. Ricca!

How do you feel about your acquittal?

It proves what I always said,

I had nothing to do with Scarza's murder.

Who could have killed

Anthony Scarza and his family?

That's a stupid question. Get off my back!

Mr. Weinstein, explain the technicality

involving the lack of admissible evidence.

That's a legality

that can't be explained at this time.

Mr. Weinstein, you don't seem surprised

about the decision.

I don't know why they waste

the taxpayers' money.

This whole thing is an arbitrary attack

on a legitimate businessman.

- Do you have any comments?

- What, dear?

Do you have any other comments?

I'll give you a comment:

Their minds are dead.

- What do you mean by that?

- Their minds are dead.

Mr. Ricca means he is very pleased

with the decision.

There's a big crowd.

Do you fear for your life?

No, of course not.

Mr. Estabrook.

As the prosecutor,

how do you feel about the court's decision?

It's happened before,

it'll probably happen again.

I have no more comments.

I'm sorry, no comments. No comments!

I have no comments.

You know what I think?

I'll tell you what I think!

F*ck the courts, that's what I think!

They've already wasted too much time

worrying about the rights of killers!

Ricca, you're a killer!

Get in the car! Go on!

Will you please back off?

We've made all of our comments.

There is nothing that I can add.


Today the noted labor leader

Carmine Ricca...

was acquitted on a technicality:

The lack of admissible evidence.

Ricca had been charged with complicity...

in the murders of labor reformer

Anthony Scarza and his family.

When he appeared outside the courthouse

this afternoon, a free man...

it touched off a wild,

mob-like demonstration.

But the police were finally able

to bring it under control...

and there have been

no reports of injuries.

But one can expect an uproar

from an angry and alarmed crowd...

which fully expected Ricca

to be convicted.

And I'm sure we haven't heard

the last of the Ricca case.

Art Brown reporting from city hall.


Gino, for Christ-sake.

Come on, Carmine. I'm driving

this thing like a baby carriage.

Could I see your driver's license, please?

Do you know who that is

sitting back there?

I'll still have to see

your driver's license, please.

I'll have to find it.

Do you know why you're being stopped?

Yes, we know, officer,

and you're making a big mistake.

- You crossed a double line back there.

- A double line?

Take it easy.

Whatever you say, officer.

I just happened to find it, sir.

That's right, Simple Simon.

Check, see if it's stolen.

I want this bastard busted out of his job.

We'll take care of this guy.

You fellas, just take it easy.

- This car registered to you?

- To him.

- I'll have to see the registration.

- Come on, give me that license.

Hi, Harry. Is this your case?


Hello, Harry. What are you doing here?

This couldn't have happened

to a nicer bunch.

Ricca, Weinstein, his attorney.

James Cantina, the driver.

What about the bodyguard?

We're checking that out now, lieutenant.

Looks like somebody saved

the taxpayers a lot of money, doesn't it?

Callahan, what are you doing here?

You're on loan to stakeout.

We had nothing hot on,

besides, we were close.

Callahan, you get your lying ass in gear

and get back to that stakeout squad.

Anything else, you call it in.

- Who do you think did this, Briggs?

- You're on loan to stakeout, Callahan.

That's right, lieutenant, you saw to that.
