Occasional Integrity = No Integrity

On an NYPD Blue episode a few weeks ago, Sipowicz’s career is in serious danger due to conflicts with a dangerous but well-connected detective new to the squad. The new captain, Gibson, fails to stand up for justice when push comes to shove, despite compelling evidence that the cop killed his wife some years back. After the bad cop is exposed to all, Gibson admits to Sipowicz that he ought to have done better. What Sipowicz says in reply very aptly, if colloquially, sums up an very important moral principle:

“You gotta stand up for what you believe in, Gibson, not just some of the time.”
