The Rookie Season 2 Episode 4: "Warriors and Guardians" Quotes
Bradford: Grey’s put you in a bad position. She’s a land mine waiting to go off, so if you find yourself in a jam, you text Officer Chen. We’ll be there.
Nolan: Thank you.
Bradford: Don’t get all emotional on me. Training rookies is a sacred duty and it bothers me when cops don’t treat it that way.
Nyla: I don’t answer to you, 5%.
Nolan: No, you don’t but if you are committed to making this an antagonistic relationship, don’t expect me to roll over and take it.
Those kids took away her dignity, tortured her for fun. She deserves a little compassion.Lopez
Sgt. Grey: She’s spent the last four years neck-deep in paranoia and adrenaline. Lying every time she opened her mouth. Striking out at any sign of aggression. Now don’t get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for her service but transitioning back into a uniform, that’s going to be a bitch.
Nolan: So you made her my T.O.?
Sgt. Grey: I didn’t have much say in that matter. She would eat a 25-year-old recruit alive. At least you stand a chance.
Nolan: You really think we’re going to need an AR-15?
Nyla: I sure hope so.
Nolan: Because when people are having their worst day I want to be there to try and help make it right.
Nyla: Oh God, you’re one of those.
Nolan: One of what?
Nyla: A guardian. There are two kinds of cops, Officer Nolan. Warriors and guardians. One’s a hunter, the other’s a nurturer. One is only alive when they’re in the fight, the other is happy to clock out after twelve. One is worth my time, the other is not.
Nolan: Why the game?
Nyla: Because I wanted to see if you could play.
Nyla: Wife left you. Kid left you. Nothing like a gun in hand to make you feel powerful again.
Nolan: No, that’s not why at all.
