Season 1 Quotes

01x05 - Episode Five Season 1 / Episode 5: - Episode Five

Commander Khokar: [Gabriel has just discovered about the cover-up of Delaney's drug dealing] Where are you going to go with this? Over my head?
Jonah Gabriel: I might hit a wall, but sooner or later I'll find a gate.
Commander Khokar: And what are you going to tell them when you do? How you forgot to log the operation on the night you went out with Delaney? Why didn't you do that, Jonah? Unless you didn't want them to know where you were? That's got to look shady in anyone's book. You'll end up in jail.
Jonah Gabriel: With you in the cell next door, sir.
Commander Khokar: And all of us without our pension. So what's your wife going to do then? Especially now you've got a baby on the way? [Gabriel is taken aback] Good news travels fast. Bad news we can bury.
Jonah Gabriel: I'm not one of you.
Commander Khokar: [a dark smile on his face] But you don't know that, though, do you? Because you can't remember. And going by the evidence, I'd say that's exactly who you are. Listen, you're fine. In fact, you're better than that. A cop with no faults, how does he know where to find other people's? Now, let's be clear. I'm saying we should all move on now. All together. Because frankly, what other choice do we have? It's the Shadow Line, Gabriel. It' where we walk.
01x02 - Episode Two Season 1 / Episode 2: - Episode Two

Jonah Gabriel: [when his police car is caught in a traffic jam] I'm on foot! Typical fucking British car chase!
