One Christmas night in L.A Confidential (1997), Officer Bud White departs from a bar and notices a woman with a bandaged nose in the vicinity of a car. Approaching the vehicle, Bud confronts Buzz, a former cop seated in the driver's position. After conducting a thorough search and finding a firearm, Bud inquires about the woman's well-being. Receiving confirmation that she is unharmed, Bud confiscates the bullets from Buzz's gun and joins with Dick Stensland:
Dick Stensland: What's going on?
Bud White: You know him?
Dick Stensland: Yeah, I've seen him around. He used to be a cop.
(Dick Stensland laughs)
