The Rookie Quotes
Wesley: Is everything all right?
Angela: No, everything is a dumpster fire. Two cops are dead and I’m here to get a warrant on a friend of mine.
Wesley: Is there anything else bothering you?
Harper: Please tell me you at least taped the conversation.
Nolan: Yeah, that would have been smart.
Nolan: I am really sorry.
Harper: And I am really looking forward to yelling at you when we are on the other side of this.
You are without a doubt the biggest pain in my ass I’ve suffered in 25 years on the job.Sgt. Grey
To be clear, receiving a Letter of Reprimand as a rookie is almost certain to keep you from advancing in the department. So any hopes of joining a specialized unit or making detective should be abandoned. Given those constraints, you’ll have to decide if the life of a patrol officer is good enough for you.Sgt. Grey
You’re out of moves, Nick. Enjoy prison.Rosalind Dyer

If I can’t handle talking to Rosalind while she’s in a cage, I shouldn’t be a cop.Chen
Nick: What’s the truth?
Nolan: You’re a coward. You weren’t there for Rebecca because you were too weak to watch her suffer so you blamed the job. The same way you blame your debts for becoming a criminal and a murderer. It doesn’t matter that you fell down. Everybody falls down. What matters is what comes next. Do you make it right or do you just make it worse?
Nick: You know your problem, John? You think you’re better than people.
Nolan: No, just you.
Armstrong is much smarter than you John, twice as ruthless. Hell, he caught me. So if this is the last time I see you, you will live on in my fantasies.Rosalind
Nolan: Two cops are dead and the guy I thought was my friend is responsible. Now help me.

Rosalind: Less interesting and help will cost you.
