Set in 1999 Los Angeles, veteran police officer Dave Brown, the last of the renegade cops, works to take care of his family, and struggles for his own survival.

Dave Brown: [to Kyle Timkins] Bear in mind that I am not a racist. Fact is, I hate all people equally. And if it helps, I've slept with some of your people. You wanna be mad at someone, try J. Edgar Hoover. He was a racist. Or the Founding Fathers, all slave-owners.
Dave Brown: This used to be a glorious soldiers department. And now it's... you.
[indicating Jane]
Helen: [to Dave Brown] You're a dinosaur, Date Rape. You're a classic racist, a bigot, a sexist, a womanizer, a chauvinist, a misanthrope, homophobic clearly, or maybe you don't like yourself.
Dave Brown: You are the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.
Linda Fentress: [consternation smile]
Dave Brown: In this bar.
Dave Brown: [giving driving lessons] You aim for the shortest wetback and watch him skedaddle. Plow the dice and the Schlitz Malt Liquor cans. And hit your siren as well. Let's see what we got...
[accelerates into pedestrians]
Dave Brown: [screeches to a halt] You'll get the hang of it.
Jane: Aren't you worried?
Dave Brown: About?
Jane: Getting a 1-28?
Dave Brown: Okay, listen, this is the most important thing I've told you so far. Everything you learned at the academy - bullshit. Illegal is just a sick bird. Just a military occupation, kid. Emergency law. Alright, let's have some fun...
Dave Brown: [to Kyle Timkins] I've been up the river, motherfucker, when you were still sucking on your mama's tit.
Dave Brown: I want you to know, I never hurt any good people.
Helen: What about us?
Dave Brown: Every shooting testimony contains inconsistencies. Otherwise you wouldn't have a job. No man whoever shoots and kills another man is entirely cogent in the moment. No plan survives contact with the enemy.
Joan Confrey: Did you learn that with the first man you killed?
Dave Brown: I learned that serving my country as a non-electric pop-up target in an often misunderstood crusade for liberty and justice, turned puppet-show for politicians, known as the Vietnam War.
Dave Brown: I don't cheat on my taxes... you can't cheat on something you never committed to.
LAPD Union Rep: Why do you still want to be a cop?
Dave Brown: Because I'm a dutiful hard-charging motherfucker and I want to explicate the LAPD's somewhat hyperbolized misdeeds with true panache regardless of my alleged transgressions. Capiche?
Catherine: [to Dave Brown] You know what I think? I think you were a dirty cop from day one. You were a dirty cop with a dirty mind and you dirtied all of us up by default.
Hartshorn: [to Dave] You know, when you first came into the department I wasn't certain whether or not you were the dumbest rookie ever, or the most bullheaded. I'm still debating it.
Dave Brown: You wanna cuddle later?
Barbara: I have a boyfriend.
Dave Brown: Cheat on him!
Barbara: Like you cheat on your taxes?
Helen: Hey, Date Rape.
Dave Brown: Don't call me that.
