Rusty Beck Quotes

04x13 - Reality Check Season 4 / Episode 13: - Reality Check

Bobby G. Monroe: Do you mind if we leap right into business, because Greg Rasenick isn't my only client.
Rusty Beck: But he IS the only one going to court this year, isn't he? I looked you up. Lots and lots of death penalty cases.
Bobby G. Monroe: It's my entire practice.
Rusty Beck: Well, I'm sorry to interrupt it.
04x05 - Snitch Season 4 / Episode 5: - Snitch

Rusty Beck: So, since you're the only one I can tell, and you're... law enforcement... adjacent, I... I thought you might tell me where I stand.
Dr. Joe Bowman: Well, first I have an issue with your premise. I'm NOT the only person you can tell about the messages. Your mother is readily available...
Rusty Beck: No, no, no, no. She's been busy with a bunch of gang killings for days now, and her job is very different from mine. The justice system needs to prosecute a killer. I need to identify a victim. I don't want Alice to finish up her life on Earth as a nameless, invisible person on the street. I have to be her voice.
03x19 - Special Master Part Two Season 3 / Episode 19: - Special Master Part Two

Rusty Beck: I just thought maybe that joining SWAT would make it harder for Stroh to get at me.
Louie Provenza: Son, son, listen. No, no, no. If you join SWAT because of Stroh, you are giving him a say in your destiny. Look, if you wanna spend your days looking over your shoulder, afraid, wondering when the blow will fall, you can just wait till you get married.
03x19 - Special Master Part Two Season 3 / Episode 19: - Special Master Part Two

Fritz Howard: If it is Stroh and he is armed, we shoot to kill. Agreed?
Rusty Beck: Yes, yes. Agree.
Russell Taylor: Well, he can't get away with a rifle. Surround the mall. And do not let this asshole escape from us again.
Gloria Lim: Shooting only if necessary.
Ann McGinnis: That's up to Stroh, not me.
03x18 - Special Master Part One Season 3 / Episode 18: - Special Master Part One

Phillip Stroh: Rusty Beck. Please take a seat.
Rusty Beck: I'm fine here, thanks. What do you wanna know?
Phillip Stroh: Just the basics. For example, if we end up in court... do you intend to repeat your pretrial testimony against me?
Rusty Beck: Yeah. Every word.
Phillip Stroh: Even knowing your statement could help the state execute me?
Rusty Beck: No one gets executed in California anymore. Actually, in the last ten years, you've killed more people than the state has. And you tried to kill me.
Phillip Stroh: Well, it was never personal, Rusty. I mean, who wants to leave witnesses behind? You're living proof of how dangerous that can be, right?

Phillip Stroh: Relax, okay? I am incapable of reaching you from here. So, moving on, I understand Emma Rios has asked you for an Impact Statement.
Rusty Beck: Yeah, what about it?
Phillip Stroh: I was just wondering if in addition to the dustups we've had, you might wanna include some of the positive effects I've had on your life.
Rusty Beck: Positive effects?
Phillip Stroh: By becoming a material witness for the state, you were taken off the streets and out of a life of prostitution, an incredibly unsafe profession. You gained a mother. You got a high school degree. You think anybody around here would have given a shit about you if it hadn't been for me?
Rusty Beck: Okay, and what about the interest Wade Weller took in me?
Phillip Stroh: Who?
Rusty Beck: Oh, don't act like you don't know his name. Wade Weller. The freak who you had write me threatening letters and who you ordered to kill me, okay? That Wade Weller. You think I should change my Impact Statement because you changed my life? Well, get this from me, okay? If anyone in this room changed someone else's life, I changed yours, okay? I changed yours.
Phillip Stroh: Oh, and I never forget it, Rusty, but to be completely fair, to be completely honest, we changed each other's lives, as we were fated to do. And we will have the power to change each other again.
Rusty Beck: Change each other how?
Phillip Stroh: I don't know. I can't see that far ahead, but our lives have been intertwined, yours and mine. A pattern has begun to emerge, wouldn't you say? And that pattern is destiny. And when you finally see destiny, Rusty, in all her glory, destiny is like an arrow... pointing toward the end.
Rusty Beck: What end? The end of what?
Phillip Stroh: Heaven knows. I'm satisfied with the witness.
Rusty Beck: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. What end? What are you talking about? What end?
Phillip Stroh: I'm satisfied with the witness. Now, get me the written parts of my deal to Judge Schaeffer and I'll give you the name of the killer.

03x17 - Internal Affairs Season 3 / Episode 17: - Internal Affairs

Rusty Beck: You're a good lawyer, right?
Jackson Raydor: I'm a great lawyer, yeah.
Rusty Beck: Okay, great. You are a great lawyer, and you had a fantastic wife and two amazing kids. You know, lots of people might say you already won the jackpot.

Rusty Beck: And you just didn't realize it.
Jackson Raydor: Yeah, I do know when I've lost.
03x17 - Internal Affairs Season 3 / Episode 17: - Internal Affairs

Rusty Beck: Look, Sharon, he-he's not violent. When he wakes up, he's going to be in terrible shape. Julio needs you right now. Do you really wanna be sitting here watching Jack sleep it off? Because we're family now, Sharon. We can split emergencies. I mean, did I... did I not do the right thing by taking his keys and coming to you?
03x17 - Internal Affairs Season 3 / Episode 17: - Internal Affairs

Jackson Raydor: So... how bad is it?
Rusty Beck: Well, you showed up drunk, you're supposed to be sober; you offered Sharon money you won gambling, you said you weren't doing that anymore; you broke into your ex-wife's house using a key that you should've returned when the divorce was final... Oh, and you passed out on her sofa.
Jackson Raydor: I came over with good intentions.
Rusty Beck: Didn't come off that way, really.
03x16 - Leap of Faith Season 3 / Episode 16: - Leap of Faith

D.D.A. Andrea Hobbs: Impact statements come from victims.
Rusty Beck: I'm not a victim, though.
Sharon Raydor: Stroh tried to kill you. He hit you in the head with a shovel. He pushed you into a canyon. He sliced your leg open with a knife.
D.D.A. Andrea Hobbs: And that's all attempted murder.
Rusty Beck: Right.
03x16 - Leap of Faith Season 3 / Episode 16: - Leap of Faith

Rusty Beck: So what do you think? I mean, sh-should I write the impact statement or not?
Sharon Raydor: It's a choice... between putting someone in an institution for life or putting them to death because they are in some way a danger and lack the mental capacity for change. It's an awful thing to have to consider - but you've been given a voice here, if not the last word: If it were up to Rusty Beck, what would happen to someone like Philip Stroh?
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Rusty Beck: Emily, Ricky, let's get out of here before we become witnesses to something.
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Ricky Raydor: Mom, where's the Christmas Village?
Rusty Beck: The what?
Emily Raydor: Ignore him, Rusty. He's obsessed with childhood junk.
Ricky Raydor: Whoa. "Junk?" No, no. First off, the Christmas Village is very valuable. It's filled with collectives. Rusty, it's-it's a special diorama made with all these model buildings from Dickens' novels and they all light up. It's awesome.
Sharon Raydor: I am so sorry, honey. I... I left the Christmas Village in storage.
Ricky Raydor: Why would it be in storage? We put it up every year and... and... Mom, where are the pinecone elves? What is this? That looks like a guilt cookie.
Sharon Raydor: They were falling apart.
Ricky Raydor: You didn't throw them away.
Sharon Raydor: I'm afraid I did.
Ricky Raydor: You dumped Harry, Sam, Franklin, Scotty, and Twinkle in the trash?
Emily Raydor: Ha-ha-ha.
Rusty Beck: You named the elves?
Ricky Raydor: Mom, these are not just pinecones with hats. These are part of my childhood. Eh-eh, they're a Christmas tradition.
Sharon Raydor: Well, this Christmas we can make some new traditions. The four of us, a new family.
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Rusty Beck: Did those wine bottles come out of Jack's garbage?
Ricky Raydor: Yeah, just don't say anything about that to Mom.
Rusty Beck: Bu... but what if she finds out we knew and didn't say anything?
Emily Raydor: Here's another Christmas tradition you need to learn...
Ricky Raydor: Right. So, after a certain age, the holidays are for our parents, not for us; so, it's our job, our responsibility really, to make them feel like we're having as great time as we did when we were seven.
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Emily Raydor: I'm just a... I'm worried that-that Dad's gonna say he's drinking because, you know, he-he feels like you tried to change him and we still cut him out of Christmas.
Rusty Beck: Well, yeah, and he probably WILL say that because users always find a reason why it's someone else's fault they're drinking. And Sharon knows that.
Emily Raydor: You just... You don't understand the whole history. Mom promised Dad that he would never see his kids again unless he stayed sober; and, you know, you may not know this, but, um, she keeps her promises.
Rusty Beck: Right... Well, you may have to pretend like you're seven at Christmas but you and Ricky are still adults. Does Sharon still tell you who you can and can't see? 'Cause she doesn't do that to me. Don't you think this might be what Jack wants, for you to not trust Sharon?
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Ricky Raydor: It's okay, little brother.
Louie Provenza: Happy holidays!
Ricky Raydor: What Mom doesn't know won't hurt her.
Rusty Beck: I hope you're right.
03x15 - Chain Reaction Season 3 / Episode 15: - Chain Reaction

Rusty Beck: Ah, well, County Jail at Christmas, about as fun as it sounds.
03x14 - Trial by Fire Season 3 / Episode 14: - Trial by Fire

Jeff Berrier: Hey, Lieutenant Mike!
Mike Tao: Hey-hey, Jeff. Welcome to the real L.A.P.D.
Jeff Berrier: Ah, thank you so much. Thank you. Yeah, Beckin's described this place to me so well, I could probably move around with my eyes closed. Uh, oh, I got my camera here. Is it okay if I just take a few photographs?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Yeah, if you let me review them before you leave. Right, Beckin?
Rusty Beck: Oh, oh, that's my nickname at work.
Jeff Berrier: Well, it's... it's "Beck and call" because he's there when we need him, he's got a great work ethic, he, uh, he-he never complains, he's always upbeat. Just positive, positive, positive. We love it.
03x14 - Trial by Fire Season 3 / Episode 14: - Trial by Fire

Jackson Raydor: Ah, Rusty Beck, L.A.P.D.'s very own Oliver Twist.
Rusty Beck: And a "Merry Christmas" to you too, Mr. Scrooge.
Jeff Berrier: Who was that?
Rusty Beck: Oh, uh, that's my mom's ex-husband.
Jeff Berrier: Oh, she was married to someone else before she met your father?
Rusty Beck: The short answer to that is yes.
03x13 - Acting Out Season 3 / Episode 13: - Acting Out

Andy Flynn: Uh, Nicole? Nicole? So, uh... you're not mad about this?
Nicole: About what?
Sharon Raydor: [privately to Rusty after Nicole and Andy exit] We're not dating.
Rusty Beck: Several times a month.
03x12 - Party Foul Season 3 / Episode 12: - Party Foul

Sharon Raydor: Are you at least having a good time?
Rusty Beck: Yeah. It's... I mean, it's crazy, but the people are nice. And, you know, the second AD, Jeff?
Sharon Raydor: Mm.
Rusty Beck: He said that I am the best set PA that he has ever met. He's a... he's a really great guy, Jeff. You'd like him a lot, and he's... he's smart, and he's very funny, and... He's, actually, he's only 25, which is really, really young for an AD. And he also says our hours aren't bad for TV at all.
03x12 - Party Foul Season 3 / Episode 12: - Party Foul

Rusty Beck: Uhhh, hey, I was wondering. What would you think if I waited to summer to start college instead of January? Just because "Badge of Justice" shoots till May, and... and they, like, really, really depend on me over there.
Sharon Raydor: Oh, I'm sure that they do, but I can't imagine anyone on that set would want you to put off college just to lend them a hand.
Rusty Beck: No, no, actually, actually Jeff says that, sometimes, uh, work experience is better than college because it helps you, like, figure out what you wanna do with your life.
Sharon Raydor: Ah. Well, I think that it is possible to appreciate Jeff's perspective without giving up on your own.
03x12 - Party Foul Season 3 / Episode 12: - Party Foul

Rusty Beck: Uh, but we went to Delancy's afterwards, and I'm not sure how the subject came up exactly, but it turns out that Jeff thought I would be nuts to skip college this semester.
Sharon Raydor: Did he?
Rusty Beck: Yeah. And he brought up another point that was... kind of obvious, which is, if you really like people... you don't have to stop being friends with them just because you're going to college.
Sharon Raydor: You know, I think you're right about this Jeff. He does seem insightful.
03x12 - Party Foul Season 3 / Episode 12: - Party Foul

Sharon Raydor: You made a plan to go to college, and you're sticking to that plan. And it's the bigger plan, really. And keeping the bigger plan in mind when things don't go exactly the way you want... that's what real stability means, Rusty.
Rusty Beck: You're just glad you got your way again, and that, somehow or other, I always end up doing exactly what you want.
Sharon Raydor: Oh, well, yes. Ha, ha. That, too.
03x11 - Down the Drain Season 3 / Episode 11: - Down the Drain

Rusty Beck: Morning.
Sharon Raydor: Morning. You headed to work?
Rusty Beck: Well, if getting a lot of people coffee and telling other people to be quiet when the camera is running is an actual job, then, yes, I am going to work. Part of the Hollywood glamour machine.
03x11 - Down the Drain Season 3 / Episode 11: - Down the Drain

Sharon Beck: Whose idea was it? Was this your idea, or Captain Raydor's? Since you're so interested in explaining yourself and telling me the truth.
Rusty Beck: It was Sharon's idea, but I agree with it, a hundred percent. Look, I made my decision, so don't make me feel bad about it, because it won't work.
Sharon Beck: And this is how you sound when you're happy? Really?
Rusty Beck: I am just trying to make the best out of a bad situation.
Sharon Beck: Okay, you know, I'll do that too, but I want you to think of something, while you're sitting there and you're judging me... All mothers make mistakes.
Rusty Beck: I know, but your mistakes were against the law. I'll see you when I can. You take care. And thank you for not trying to manipulate me, Mom. I appreciate that.
Sharon Beck: Whatever happens, whatever you sign, I will always be your mother.
03x11 - Down the Drain Season 3 / Episode 11: - Down the Drain

Rusty Beck: Sharon, one day, I-I promise you... one day, I will give you a reason to be proud of me... I promise.
Sharon Raydor: Oh, my God, Rusty. I am already so proud of you.
03x11 - Down the Drain Season 3 / Episode 11: - Down the Drain

Rusty Beck: Thanks. Thanks, Buzz. Thank you. Thank you.
03x11 - Down the Drain Season 3 / Episode 11: - Down the Drain

Rusty Beck: Um, lemme go and I will ask my boss if I can have some time later in the week to, um... change mothers.
03x10 - Zoo Story Season 3 / Episode 10: - Zoo Story

Sharon Beck: Do you think there's any way you could, eh, um... come up with $500 somehow?
Rusty Beck: Where do you think I'm supposed to get $500, Mom?
Sharon Beck: I'm... Do you... Well, do you still do that work you did on the side... when I was away? I wouldn't judge you if you did.
