Brenda Leigh Johnson: [to Capt. Raydor] I'm not goin' anywhere with you. I can't stop FID from interfering, but if you wanna be involved, you're gonna have to follow me.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Knowing and understanding your rights as I've explained them to you, are you willing, Mr. Kretchner, to answer a few questions without an attorney preset?
Edward 'Teddy' Kretchner: Eat me.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Is that "eat me" as in "I wanna talk" or "eat me" as in "I'm unwilling to cooperate?"
Captain Sharon Raydor: Officers Stern and Duran have been completely exonerated.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: And because of the way Force Investigation Division operates, I'll be investigation' the murder of more good cops just like them.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Excuse me?
Brenda Leigh Johnson: When officers are shot and killed in the line of duty, they're investigated by me; when they shoot back, they're investigated by you. That means that they'll think twice before defending themselves. That hesitation will mean that more good cops will die, and I have to ask: Have you ever considered what your principles cost?
Captain Sharon Raydor: Seventy million dollars. That was the settlement in the Rampart case. One hundred - that's how many convictions were overturned due to renegade policing and lack of oversight in one division alone, not to mention the loss of trust the LAPD needs to remain effective.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: [taking it in] There has to be a better way.
Captain Sharon Raydor: Well... until then, you've got me.
