- "Money or no money, I don't ever want to see you again. I am retired."
- ―Phil Sharkey[src]
When Cross De Lena suspected Losey's hand in the death of his father, he approached Sharkey at his home, paying him a large amount of money to divulge information about his former colleague. Sharkey had admired Losey, but became nervous following Losey's shooting of the suspected killer Hugh Marlowe and his increasingly reckless behaviour.
After passing on this information to Cross, he admitted he knew who Cross was, and who Losey was working with.
