In The Departed (2006), Fitzy and Delahunt are playing "who's cop & whose not" in front of the bar. Billy is sitting in the bar and there are a group of men sitting near him. Frank comes in from the kitchen with his sleeves stained with blood.

Frank: You can get out of here. I'm using a new crew tonight. New guys.

Billy: I thought I was on for this.

Frank: I changed my mind. Take the night off.

Frank goes back to the kitchen, the group of men follow him back into the kitchen. Mr French turns to Billy & says:

French: There's guys who answer the questions right...and there's guys that don't.

            up...questions...see, Bill, you're
            the new guy...and the girlfriend.
            Why don't you stay in the bar when
            I get the numbers. Your numbers.
            Everybody's numbers.
                Is there something you want to ask
                me, Frank?

So, not so much specific questions, but Frank (Costello) is questioning who the rat it is in his organization. He was not satisfied that he knew, so he brought in a whole new crew for the job.
