Louie Provenza: Ah, this is a crappy way to make a living, dealing with the worst the world has to offer without being in charge.
Andy Flynn: You weren't in charge for eight years.
Louie Provenza: Yeah, but now I'm mad about it.
Cynthia: Just finishing up, Captain, and from what I can tell, Rusty is in good hands here, and DCFS is very grateful to you.
Rusty Beck: No, you are very happy to lock me up until I testify in your stupid murder trial, which is why nobody is bothering to look for my mom.
Rusty Beck: You know, the first chance I get, I'm going to leave and find her myself.
Sharon Raydor: Would you rather I spend my time looking for your mother or you?
Andy Flynn: She's smart and dumb at the same time.
Louie Provenza: Oh, she's not dumb. She's choosing sides.
Rusty Beck: Can I come in yet?
Buzz Watson: No. I told you to stay at my desk until I'm done and then I'll look over your exam...
Rusty Beck: Hey, "no" is enough. It's not like I'm desperate to spend time with you.
Sharon Raydor: You have been a homicide detective for how long? And you're still expecting life to be fair?
Sharon Raydor: Lieutenant, aren't you experienced enough to speak your mind with me AND remember my rank?
Louie Provenza: Well, of course, I am. The problem is I-I don't want to.
[Provenza prepares to leave Major Crimes over its perceived state of unfairness]
Sharon Raydor: Look, why don't you agree to stay on at Major Crmes only... only till you find someplace completely fair to work?
Rusty Beck: You can not tell me to go to my room. I am not a child, first of all, and second of all, you are NOT my mother.
Sharon Raydor: You're right. I'm not your mother, and how do we know that? Because I am HERE! I'm here... and your mother is not... and you're gonna have to try and make the best of it.
