In today's LAPD, especially my house, we don't threaten people. Not even the murderers.


Wesley: Does it seem like we fight a lot?
Lopez: Definitely, but I think it’s our thing, you know, how some couples swing dance or go to Disneyland?

Officer West: Did you shoot me?
Officer Lopez: Just a little.
Officer West: I guess you’re screwed. Rules clearly state that if you shoot your rookie you can’t hand them off to another T.O.

Here’s the thing, I made my peace with dying when I got on this bus. So I’m coming over there and I’m arresting you.

Officer West

Officer Nolan: It’s not right, keeping everyone in the dark. We’re supposed to be protecting them.
Officer Bishop: That’s exactly what we’re trying to do.
Officer Nolan: Yeah, but…
Officer Bishop: But nothing, Officer Nolan. This is where the job’s hardest. If we alert the public, we alert the men we’re hunting. Odds are they’ll panic and set it all off and we’ll cause the thing we’re trying to prevent.
Officer Nolan: And what if they set it off anyway before we catch them?
Officer Bishop: Then it’ll haunt us.

Randy Fisher: We’ve got psychic client confidentiality.
Psychic: That’s not a thing, Asshat.

Sgt. Grey: Remind me, Officer Nolan, again, how the Chief feels about you.
Officer Nolan: Oh, big fan, Sir.

Officer Lopez: Eighty might be the passing grade, Boot, but if you don’t get at least a 90 you should turn in your badge just on principle.
Officer Bradford: Officer Chen, I will take it as a personal insult if you get anything less than a 93.

[to Jessica] Henry’s flying in, you two can finally meet. Is that too soon? I’m sorry, I have no idea of the single dad rules yet.


I think helping people when you can look them in the eye is one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done.


I’m not training a quitter, Boot. We fight until the bell rings, there’s no other way.

Officer Bradford

Yesterday you felt safe. Tomorrow you won’t, but until you do, I’m going to be here for you.


The Rookie Season 1 Quotes

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

Officer Bradford

Stacy: Happy Divorce Day!
John: That’s not a thing.
Stacy: It should be. When mine went through I took the boys to Disneyland.
John: I’m not really feeling the Matterhorn.
Stacy: Try and look at this as an opportunity.
John: Right now I’m just trying to remember to wear pants.
