    wedge for??

    In one episode of "Shield" two police officers were talking about third policeman whose past was little obscure.
    One of them told that what he knew of him was that he was a trustworthy and good cop while the other one appeared to be sceptical.
    "Do you wedge for him?" (that's how I heard it said) she asked him.
    The subtitles translated it as "guarantee"
    Do you guarantee that he doesn't make any foolish things?.
    Maybe this belongs to the cathegory of misheard things but can you confirm this or suggest some other word??

    What about vouch for? It means, to give personal assurance; to give a guanantee.

    Source: vouch - definition of vouch by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
