And not like Gibbs and Sloane were friends. Do people think that we're like Gibbs and Sloane? Like, 'Are they? Did they? Will they, won't they?' I mean, what exactly do people think is going on between me and Nick? Because if people are talking about us behind our back, Jimmy, that's not cool."  (Jessica C)

Every day multiple people die because they can't afford the care that they need. So for my own well being, I choose to dedicate my conscience elsewhere. I sponsor children in the Sudan; I give to my local food bank. I do all those things with the money I earn from this job which I would lose if I caved every time someone like you accused me of not having a conscience!"  (Julia)

The Rookie
1.  Tim: "You're a good cop, Nolan. I'll grant you that."  Nolan: "Thank you, sir. I appreciate it. Is that a yes to Thai?"  Tim: "How serious are you about becoming a training officer?"  Nolan: "Very serious."  Tim: "Training our next generation is the most sacred position an office can hold. It's not a consolation prize or a rung on the ladder to your next promotion."  Nolan: "I know that."  Tim: "No, I don't think you do. Because last month you wanted to be a detective, and you found out that couldn't happen and now you wanna be a T.O."  Nolan: "Sir, I don't want to be a T.O. I'm going to be a T.O. If you want to doubt my convictions, that's fine. You don't want to help me? That's fine, too, but you're not going to deter me."  Tim: "Let's get Mexican."  Nolan: "Love it."
2.  Angela, about La Fiera : "When you look at her, all you see is a woman from a third-world country with a fourth grade education, but she's smarter than you."  Taggart: "Oh, really? But not you?"  Angela: "No, she probably is but I'm humble enough to know that, which is why I'm going to be the one who takes her down."
3.  Harper: "Look at me. This is your final chance to back out. Do you still want this after what you just experienced?"  Lucy: "Yeah. Yeah, I do."  (Folie-lex)
