~ Carter to Lee when he didn't respond to Carter

Detective James Carter is one of the two main characters of the Rush Hour trilogy (the deuteragonist of the first two movies, and the protagonist of the third). He is a detective for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in Los Angeles and is Chief Inspector Lee's partner and best friend - though in the beginning, they did not get along. James Carter appears in all three Rush Hour films.

He is portrayed by Chris Tucker, who also portrays Franklin Hatchett in Money Talks.

It's also known that Carter has been in the LAPD for some time and doesn't like working with partners.
