Rusty Beck Quotes

02x14 - All In Season 2 / Episode 14: - All In

D.D.A. Emma Rios: Excuse me. Do you have a minute? Because I want to apologize. I'm... very sorry about trying to stop you from seeing a doctor, but my concern for your safety is real. I don't believe the state should expose minors to the kind of danger you're facing.
Rusty Beck: Anything else?
D.D.A. Emma Rios: Just doing my job. Sorry.
Rusty Beck: Your job sucks. But that's an apology I can accept. Good night, Emma.
02x13 - Jailbait Season 2 / Episode 13: - Jailbait

Rusty Beck: I don't see how feeling sorry for myself will change anything. It won't my mom back, it won't change what happened to me.
Dr. Joe Bowman: Pity is one thing. Sympathy is another. Forget about yourself for a second. Picture another 15-year old boy, walking through the zoo at Griffith Park, expecting to be picked up by his mom. Picture him waiting. Picture his panic as he begins to understand his mother's not showing up. Picture him with no resources, and no clothes and no food, and nothing but the knapsack that he was carrying with him, walking three miles back to the apartment where he'd been living, only to find one small suitcase, packed, and left behind. And himself alone. Can you picture that, Rusty?
Rusty Beck: Yeah. I can picture that, yeah.
Dr. Joe Bowman: Anything you'd like to say to that boy?
Rusty Beck: I... I'd tell him that it wasn't his fault. And that even though he might have to do some bad things... though some bad things might happen to him... that he'd end up with people who cared about him.
Dr. Joe Bowman: So, you do have some sympathy for that boy?
Rusty Beck: Yeah, sure.
Dr. Joe Bowman: Okay... Okay. I was supposed to do a straight two days with you, but we had a little trouble getting started, so... fill out this paperwork, and, I'll make some time for you right before Christmas, and we'll see if we can finish up.
02x12 - Pick Your Poison Season 2 / Episode 12: - Pick Your Poison

Rusty Beck: I feel like my life is like... I just, I feel like my life is being sacrificed so that you all can have a trial.
Lt. Louie Provenza: It's tough. We know that. That's why we wanna talk to you about all three ways to deal with these threats.
Assistant Chief Taylor: Not three ways. Two ways.
Lt. Louie Provenza: Three.
Assistant Chief Taylor: No. No, no.
02x10 - Backfire Season 2 / Episode 10: - Backfire

Rusty Beck: Uh, that girl, Briana? You said you were looking for her boyfriend. Did you find him yet?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Um, yeah. But unfortunately, he was already murdered.
Rusty Beck: Why?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Well, because, if you hang out with criminals, you eventually are going to become a witness, a suspect, or a victim.
02x06 - Boys Will Be Boys Season 2 / Episode 6: - Boys Will Be Boys

Jackson Raydor: Oh, oh, oh. I just had another flash of what I modestly call genius.
Rusty Beck: He has.
Jackson Raydor: What better, what safer, what more trustworthy cop to accompany our young students of Romeo and Juliet to the movies than you?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Tonight?
Jackson Raydor: Mm, hm.
Kris Slater: They're showing Shakespeare in Love at Hollywood Forever.
Jackson Raydor: Blankets. A picnic. Mistaken identities. Romance. Role reversals. Outrageous fortune. Kids really wanna go, but they can't without you. What say you, madam?
02x03 - Under the Influence Season 2 / Episode 3: - Under the Influence

Captain Sharon Raydor: "Write about the person in your life who has influenced you the most."
Buzz Watson: I proofed it. Just read the first line.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Okay. "From the day I finally learned to tie my shoes, the person who has exercised the most influence in my life is me." [pause] Oh.
Rusty Beck: What? It's true.
02x03 - Under the Influence Season 2 / Episode 3: - Under the Influence

Rusty Beck: "As my mother drifted further and further away under the influence of crack and finally disappeared, in a curious contradiction of our circumstances, her affect on the choices I make has only increased. I sometimes wonder why she cannot choose me over using drugs, but I will never wonder if I will do that to other people. And I won't run away from problems again, no matter how threatening they may seem. These are the lessons my mother taught me, even as she failed to learn them herself."
Captain Sharon Raydor: That was very good. Very you.
Rusty Beck: For better or for worse?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Oh, for better. Very, very much better.
02x02 - False Pretenses Season 2 / Episode 2: - False Pretenses

Captain Sharon Raydor: Well, it's just while we wait until the lab results from the letter come back. If you don't mind.
Rusty Beck: Well, you're asking me? So it sounds like I have a choice?
Captain Sharon Raydor: That would be misleading.
02x01 - Final Cut Season 2 / Episode 1: - Final Cut

Captain Sharon Raydor: Let me explain to you just how important you are to this process. A man who raped, and killed five young girls could end up going free, unless you speak up. Is that what you want to happen?
Rusty Beck: No. No, Sharon. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. But even... even if I... I plead the Fifth or whatever, people will find out about me. They will.
Captain Sharon Raydor: And they will also find out... that under... very difficult circumstances and against your own best interests that Rusty Beck was the kind of person who was brave enough to do the right thing.
02x01 - Final Cut Season 2 / Episode 1: - Final Cut

Rusty Beck: And, uh, can you... make Sharon think that it was, like, all your idea?
Lt. Louie Provenza: Well... I have no problem taking credit for other people's ideas. How do you think I became a lieutenant?
01x04 - The Ecstasy and the Agony Season 1 / Episode 4: - The Ecstasy and the Agony

Rusty Beck: I shouldn't be going to this school. I'm not even Catholic.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Just walk around with a guilty expression on your face, you'll fit right in.
01x01 - Reload Season 1 / Episode 1: - Reload

Rusty Beck: Don't think I'm gonna be all, like, thankful for you taking me in.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Oh, trust me. You're not the first adolescent to my home with your presence. Having raised two teenagers of my own, I have tremendous capacity for ingratitude. [pauses] Rusty, it's so funny. Just when you get good at being a mother, you're fired.
Rusty Beck: Or you quit.
01x01 - Reload Season 1 / Episode 1: - Reload

Rusty Beck: So, what are we supposed to call each other, anyway?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Oh. I think you should call me Captain Raydor.
Rusty Beck: Okay. And you can call me Mr. Beck.
Captain Sharon Raydor: *You* are the child in this relationship.
Rusty Beck: No, I am the witness. If you are the police officer, then I am the witness.
Captain Sharon Raydor: There are not a lot of people around here who call me by my first name.
Rusty Beck: Oh, well, maybe that's why you live alone with a spare bedroom.
Captain Sharon Raydor: I live alone because my children are grown. The spare bedroom is for when they visit. But you may call me Sharon. How's that?
Rusty Beck: *Sharon*? What, is that like your bad idea of a joke of something?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Why do you say that?
Rusty Beck: Sharon is my mother's name.
Captain Sharon Raydor: [sighs] Oh.
Rusty Beck: God, you haven't been looking for her at all, have you?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Rusty, I just got this job yesterday. Give me a chance to catch up. I am making a good-faith effort. I am. Rusty, if it is possible to find your mother, I will do it. I promise you.
Rusty Beck: Sure you will, Captain. Sure you will.
