Rookies. You all think you can change the world.


Grey: Is there a problem, Smitty?
Smitty: Oh no, sir. I just love playing Whack-a-mole.
Grey: It’s true. Knockdown a problem spot it can pop back up anywhere but that’s the job, right? And since you’re so excited about doing it, I think you should share your excitement with Officer West out there today.
Smitty: Seriously?
West: Seriously?
Grey: Yeah, seriously.

West: It can’t be worse than today.
Smitty: Oh, it can always get worse.

Angela: Only a rich person would think turning down money is a noble idea. I wore my brother’s hand-me-downs until I was 15. My mom worked two jobs and so did we once we reached high school.
Wesley: So, you think less of me?
Angela: Are you kidding? Your mom and I already started planning the wedding. California is a no fault divorce state so if you ever felt like doing me a solid…

I was married for 20 years. Nothing usually means a whole lot of something.


We’d been friends for a few months and there’d always been a spark but it went off like a bomb. Crawled all over each other for two weeks. It was zero to 160 in the span of a heartbeat.


I left you a note because I wouldn’t have been able to go through with it if I saw you in person. And I don’t regret marrying Sarah and I have loved every minute of being Henry’s Dad but what I did to you was selfish and you deserved better and I’m sorry.


Jackson: Smitty, you live in the police station parking lot.
Smitty: I even have the password to the coffee shop wifi.

Don’t do that, speculate. Making up stories is how innocent men go to jail and guilty men go free.


I will hunt the men who did this. I will hunt them to the ends of the earth and I will not stop until I find them.


I am not going to lie, the change to short sleeves has been life-altering.


Grey: You ever heard of a Night General?
Nolan: No, Sir.
Grey: Night general detectives. They respond to any crime scene after normal business hours. They work the case until it’s assigned. They have to be a master at everything because they see everything.
Nolan: Sound impressive.
Grey: It is and most of them got the attitude to go with it.

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