Grey: When I joined the department I told myself to do whatever you need to do to survive, get a promotion, then make some real change.
Luna: And now you're about to retire.
Grey: And I didn't change a damn thing.
Luna: Okay. What are you gonna do about it?

Tim: I've been making excuses for pricks like Stanton my entire life. I figured there was no changing him so I let it go. I gave him a pass.
Jackson: But it wasn't a pass! You gave him permission. Silence is complicity, sir.
Tim: Yeah. I get that now.

We're survivors, Diego and me. When it comes to your child there is nothing you won't do. Nothing you won't become to protect them. You'll see.

La Fiera

Lucy: Stanton is a racist.
Tim: You don't know that for sure.
Lucy: Uh, yeah. Actually, I do. But you're right. Let's just make excuses for him.

We're arresting the whole family? Even the grandmother? Are you serious?

Jackson

This is not a costume. I am a police officer. Filing a report is his right.

Nolan

Harper: You can’t come at this like you are some kind of savior.
Nolan: You mean white savior. Look, that’s the last thing I’m trying to be but what am I supposed to do? How can I be an ally to the people that live here?
Harper: Stop pretending like you know what they need and just ask.

With all due respect, screw Tim. Yeah, and all the other T. O.s. You know, I am so sick of being on the bottom of the food chain. Of always jumping through somebody else’s hoops.

Jackson

Nolan: You shouldn’t have to trade a place to play for safety.
James: No, we shouldn’t, but we do.

Bradford: Congratulations.
Chen: On what?
Bradford: On your first puppy. Every rookie adopts a puppy at some point. Someone they think they can save. Honestly, I’m surprised it took you this long.
Chen: Did you have a puppy?
Bradford: That’s not relevant here.

You are without a doubt the biggest pain in my ass I’ve suffered in 25 years on the job.

Sgt. Grey

Forget about your job, Nolan. I’m trying to keep you out of prison.

The Rookie Quotes

Grief is grief. It’s a hole that can’t be filled but over time it will shrink enough so that you won’t fall in every time you take a step. If there’s one thing you can use to make you a better cop, it will be her life, not her death.

Officer Bradford

I love Rookie Day. It’s Christmas and the Purge in one.
