The Rookie Quotes
Nolan: Two cops are dead and the guy I thought was my friend is responsible. Now help me.
Rosalind: Kill him?
Nolan: Catch him.
Rosalind: Less interesting and help will cost you.
Chen: I still can’t believe karaoke bars are covers for brothels.
Bradford: Everywhere is a cover for a brothel.
Chen: That’s depressing.
Harper: So what? Armstrong murdered Erin to shut her up? Do you realize what you are accusing him of?
Nolan: Yes, I do. He’s my friend and a mentor and this is killing me but if I’m right, he’s betraying everything we stand for.
Cops make the best criminals.Harper
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
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.
Nick: I’m out.
Reuben: There is no out. You know this.
Nick: No, I won’t. I’ve done a lot of bad things for you but I ain’t doing that.
Reuben Darien: Yes you will, my friend, because when you sell me your soul you don’t get to choose how I use it.
Bradford: But Cisco’s been radio silent since he was sent a request for a meet yesterday.
Chen: And you’re worried he’s been compromised?
Bradford: I’m worried he’s been dumped in a shallow grave.
Harper: Did you really just say the Q word in my shop?
Nolan: What, quiet?
Harper: Ah, ah, ah, stop! You do not under any circumstance ever use the Q word while on duty. That is like saying Macbeth in theater or talking about a no-hitter in the dugout.
Nolan: Okay, I had no idea you were superstitious.
Harper: That is not superstitious, that’s fact.
Nolan: Where are you going?
Harper: I’m going to get the trauma plate for my vest because I have a feeling I'm going to need it.
Rookies aren’t used to the adrenaline, they get amped up. It’s lights and sirens syndrome.Bradford
You are only going to hear me say this once. Emmett’s a fireman, they’re idiots. They mean well, and Emmett, he’s a not bad firemen. Don’t write him off.Bradford
