At the restaurant scene in L.A Confidential (1997), Dudley speaks to the suspended cop Bud White and reveals a police badge and gun in front of him:
Dudley: They're yours. Go ahead, take them.
Immediately, Bud White grabs the police badge and gun in front of him:
Bud White: There's no goddamn bill on me?
Dudley: Four witnesses recanted their testimony.
Here Dudley didn't directly answer Bud White's question about a bill. Instead, he talked about four witnesses changing their statements.
Why didn't Dudley answer Bud White's question here?
