  • Quotes

    • Webster: Well, if you've got any questions, anything you'd like to learn, please feel free to ask.
      Lt. Monroe: There's not much you can teach me, Officer Webster.
      Webster: No? Then how come you're riding with us?
      Lt. Monroe: Because some of the people in Internal Affairs are getting a little bit worried over the fact that, uh, we may have created a problem with all this new cop nonsense.
      Gillis: Well, what kind of a problem, Lieutenant?
      Lt. Monroe: A problem concerning an elite corps on the force, some young cops thinking they know all the answers, thinking they're better than men who've been on the force for 20 years, that's what kind of a problem.
      Webster: Then you don't agree with the program?
      Lt. Monroe: Well, it doesn't matter whether I agree or not, I wasn't consulted.
      Webster: But if you had been?
      Lt. Monroe: Well, I would have told them they're getting all hot and bothered because people don't like cops. So what? Who said people are supposed to like cops? Nobody likes anybody with power; and cops have the power. So nobody's going to like cops and that's all there is to it.
