Training Day

Synopsis: In Los Angeles, a city where streets are overrun by drug dealers, those who have sworn to uphold the law are breaking them to clean up the streets.

'Training Day' follows Harris as he trains rookie Jake Hoyt over a 24-hour period.

Get in, it's unlocked.

- No. Sexy, though, huh?

- Where's the office, at division?

- You're in the office.

Going up.

Today is a training day.

Give you a taste of the business.

I got 38 cases pending trial...

...63 active investigations,

I supervise five officers.

Five personalities.

Five sets of problems.

You could be six.

I ain't holding no hands.

You got today to show me

what you're made of.

You don't like Narcotics,

get the f*ck out of my car...

...get a job chasing bad checks.

You hear me?

- I hear you.

- Okay.

Why do you want to be a narc?

To serve my community by ridding

it of dangerous drugs.

Right, but why a narc?

I want to make detective.

Stick with me, you can do it.

Unlearn that academy shit.

Don't bring that here.

It'll get you killed.

I'll do anything you want me to do.

My n*gger.

Roll your window down. Start there.

- Got to hear it, smell it, taste it.

- Right.

How's your Espaol?.

Learn that shit.

That will get you killed.

They plot all kinds of shit

behind your back.

You gonna teach me that

old-school Rodney King shit?

We don't roll like that no more.

Now we use this.

These niggers are too strong.

- Think I'm crazy?

- I don't know what to think.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.



Been married long?

- About a year.

- Yeah?

- You got a kid?

- A girl, 9 months.

I got four. Boys.

You need a son,

I'll hook your lady up. Can't miss.

Can we not talk

about my family, all right?

I respect that.

I'm married, I got my queen too.

I remember having a young bride.

You probably f*ck her face-to-face,

don't you?

Let's not talk about her.

That's my point. You're so in love,

it's coming right out.

The day you bring

that here is the day...
