Running Scared (1986)

Angry chief: Captain Logan (Dan Hedaya)
Angriest quote: “Let me tell you something. If I find you in the city, I'm gonna have you arrested. If you step one foot in this station house, I'm gonna have you shot.”
Anger level: Comically high.
Possible HR issue: He maintains that one of the best reasons to be a cop is that you can shoot people and get away with it. Probably best if he stays away from the press.
Health problems? None as yet – but give it time around these two.
Badge and/or gun taken: In a fashion, yes: he insists Ray (Gregory Hines) and Danny (Billy Crystal) take their vacation as soon as possible, but comes to regret that decision.

Captain Logan is full of well-primed put-downs, ready to be launched as soon as Ray and Danny – the former in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers baseball cap; the latter in a piece of novelty headgear where a foam shark is leaping out of his forehead – walk into his office. “You are the detectives. Go and detect,” is a typical example quip, as is “You're getting careful, aren't you? Careful gets you killed in this line of work. You think about getting shot and you get shot.” But because this is a Billy Crystal movie, there isn’t that much danger/tension/real fear, so for all his barbs, you still know he’s only in it for the gags. That, and the doughnuts, of course.
