The Rookie Season 3 Episode 1: "Consequences" Quotes
Forget about your job, Nolan. I’m trying to keep you out of prison.Wesley
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.
Nolan: The truth is on my side.
Wesley: And you think that means something? If you were any other defendant…
Wesley: Never mind.
Nolan: No, I want to know. If I was any other defendant, what?
Wesley: You are a white man, a cop. You have already been treated with a level of deference my other clients would never get. If you were black or brown the police would have created exigent circumstances and kicked the door in, shot you if they thought you reacted aggressively. Arrested you if you surrendered, confident that the DA would bully you into a plea deal.

The power to take a life in pursuit of justice. Power that is all too easily abused and yet at every turn cops like you look at us like the enemy, the Rat Squad. How the hell do you expect me to root out problem cops when I’m sabotaged at every turn?Commander West

Jackson: You said that Nolan came to your house to kill you.
Jackson: But first he told you about a bunch of evidence hidden at his place. Why would he waste time doing that?
Armstrong: Nolan’s a talker. You know him.
Jackson: Yeah, I do, but he’s not a boaster and he’s definitely not stupid.
You are without a doubt the biggest pain in my ass I’ve suffered in 25 years on the job.Sgt. Grey
Angela: You know I peed on that, right?
Angela: I’m just saying, you might want to wash your hands.
If I can’t handle talking to Rosalind while she’s in a cage, I shouldn’t be a cop.Chen
