Sgt. Grey: She felt your experience would make you a valuable addition to our house.
Officer Nolan: I guess I’ve got a lot to live up to.
Sgt. Grey: We all do. We all do.

Grief is grief. It’s a hole that can’t be filled but over time it will shrink enough so that you won’t fall in every time you take a step. If there’s one thing you can use to make you a better cop, it will be her life, not her death.

Officer Bradford

Officer Nolan: You were right. I was selfish. I got her killed.
Officer Bishop: Don’t do that. Don’t make this about you. She didn’t die because of your choice, she died doing her job the only way she knew how. You look at it any other way, you diminish her.

Killing this loser won’t honor her memory, doing our jobs will.

Sgt. Grey

Riding with the Captain. And I thought being greenlit was scary.

Officer Nolan

My training would be put on hold. I’d stay a rookie while you guys moved up. We’d be separated.

Officer Nolan

Officer Nolan: I mean I can’t just go to work, right? I’d be endangering everyone who came within five feet of me.
Captain Anderson: Being a cop means being at risk.
Officer Nolan: So you’re saying I should just report for duty, act like nothing happened.
Captain Anderson: I think we tell criminals what to do, not the other way around.
Officer Nolan: No matter the consequences.
Captain Anderson: No matter the consequences.

How’s a rookie get greenlit before me? I’ve got to step up my game.

Officer Bradford

If you have to change your behavior because of these reversals then we have a problem. My officers do things the right way every day.

Captain Anderson
