Sharon Raydor: Just keep your eye on the ball, everyone, and ignore me like you usually do.
Sharon Raydor: Asking all these questions at every one of your crime scenes for the past two months, I am feeling less like a captain and more like a hall monitor every day. I understand the importance of the federal lawsuit we are facing, but I am not convinced that my constant presence in your division is necessary; and, there is something else. There is something else that I've been meaning to tell you.
Sharon Raydor: I've had a job offer - Director of Internal Threats and Corporate Security at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Russell Taylor: You're quitting?
Sharon Raydor: I'm eligible to collect my captain's pension, and I feel like it's time to work someplace where people might be glad to see me.
Will Pope: Captain, do not feel that you are unappreciated.
Sharon Raydor: I walk into a room, it goes silent. I can't say hello to anyone outside the Professional Standards Bureau without provoking a defensive response. Between that and a few things in my personal life, I feel that it's time for me...
Will Pope: Captain, you can not retire tight now. No one else is nearly as familiar with this federal case against us; and, with all due respect to your issues, Major Crimes is run by a deputy chief and three lieutenants. Replacing you with a lower ranking officer, it's... i-it's not even possible. I have no one else for this job.
Sharon Raydor: Can't do it anymore. I'm sorry, sir.
Will Pope: All right, when the promotions freeze is over, I will make you a commander.
Russell Taylor: Wow. That's quite an offer, Captain.
Sharon Raydor: Thank you, Chief... but I feel I've have enough.
Louie Provenza: Apropos of nothing, really, when can Major Crimes start planning your retirement party? I wanna bring the balloon animals myself.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: [hearing about Raydor's retrement] But she hasn't found the leak yet.
Fritz Howard: You don't believe there IS a leak.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: It doesn't mean I'm... right.
Fritz Howard: Amazing.
Sharon Raydor: As good as Coach Carr's intentions are, his actions were illegal.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: Or you could say that the challenges he faced at work forced him to look for unorthodox solutions; and now, for goin' above and beyond the call of duty, he'll probably lose his job.
Sharon Raydor: Well, maybe it's time for him to move on.
Brenda Leigh Johnson: I don't know. He seemed to be doin' important work... even if it wasn't fully appreciated by his boss and fellow teachers. There's something about that I find... admirable.
Sharon Raydor: Me, too.
