Rampart (2011) Poster


Woody Harrelson: David Douglas Brown



  • 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 : I don't cheat on my taxes... you can't cheat on something you never committed to.

  • 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 : You are the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.

    Linda Fentress : [consternation smile] 

    Dave Brown : In this bar.

  • Helen : Hey, Date Rape.

    Dave Brown : Don't call me that.

  • Dave Brown : This used to be a glorious soldiers department. And now it's... you.

    [indicating Jane] 

  • 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 : I want you to know, I never hurt any good people.

    Helen : What about us?

  • Dave Brown : [to Kyle Timkins]  I've been up the river, motherfucker, when you were still sucking on your mama's tit.

  • 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?

  • Dave Brown : You wanna cuddle later?

    Barbara : I have a boyfriend.

    Dave Brown : Cheat on him!

    Barbara : Like you cheat on your taxes?
