Iconic ‘Training Day’ Quotes

These Training Day quotes will give you an inside glimpse of the corrupt world of the L.A.

Police, as told by film director, Antoine Fuqua.

The film follows a rookie cop, Jake Hoyt, played by Ethan Hawke, who is assigned to learn from the experienced narcotics officer, Alonzo, played by Denzel Washington.

As it turns out, Alonzo isn’t as vetted as he seems.

Which Iconic Training Day quote was your favorite?

Officer Hoyt dreams of earning a promotion so he can give his family a better life.

Alonzo is the man who can get him there.

But after just one day of training, Hoyt has experienced more than he bargained for.

Alonzo is the definition of a dirty cop.

In just one day, Hoyt witnesses Alonzo abusing his power in every way.

Hoyt is forced to do drugs, watches Alonzo beat up criminals rather than arresting them, and is ordered to kill a man or be framed for his murder.

Alonzo is a psychopath and Washington does a stellar job portraying this on screen.

In fact, he won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the role.

The film was a critical and commercial success and is now a modern classic.
