Movie: The Departed (2006)
Who does the sonning? Dignam (Mark Wahlberg)
Who gets sonned? Lazio (Robert Wahlberg)
Context: Dignam, a hard-nosed Boston cop, has a lot on his plate. During an operations meeting, one of the other feds asks a nosy question about the mole in Frank Costello's gang. Let's think about it—if you had an inside guy infiltrating the most wanted mob in Boston, saying anything to anyone could cause a leak. Not wanting to jeopardize the whole situation, Dignam explains, in three magical sentences, that he doesn't have time for this. —Arianna Friedman
