  • show Description
  • Blue Bloods is a CBS police drama by Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess, known for their work on the long running HBO drama 'The Sopranos'. The show follows the lives of the multi-generational Reagan family (Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, Bridget Moynahan as Erin Reagan, Donnie Wahlberg as Danny Reagan) and their dedication to the New York City Police Department. Although a tight-knit family, you find that the Reagan's have very different ideas of how to gain justice. But they have one thing in common, they'll stop at nothing to see justice served, because their occupation is more than just a job, it's the family business.moreless

    • Danny tells Jackie that he wants her to question an officer at the "two-seven" (i.e., the 27th precinct). The NYPD does not have a 27th Precinct; however, there is a fictional one on the long-running cop show Law & Order.

    • Commissioner Reagan: I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

      The Commissioner is quoting American clergyman, author and historian Edward Everett Hale (1822–1909).

    • ADA Erin Reagan-Boyle: (to Det. Danny Reagan) Ah, well fine. While you're at it why don't you look for a one-armed man.

      The "one-armed man" is a reference to The Fugitive, a TV series that aired on ABC for four season from 1963 to 1967. The series was created by Roy Huggins and produced by QM Productions. The series centered around a Richard Kimble who was falsely convicted of his wife's murder who, after he escaped, continued to search for the real killer, a "one-armed man". In 1993, The Fugitive was made into a movie directed by Andrew Davis and produced by Arnold Kopelson. In 2002, a short lived remake, The Fugitive, was produced by Warner Bros. Television and aired on CBS for one sesaon.

    • Frank: (to Baker) Stop looking at me as if I'm Captain Queeg asking about the strawberries.
      Reagan acknowledges his  intense focus on the suspect 9/11 charity when he references Herman Wouk's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Caine Mutiny (1951). Captain Queeg, the commanding officer of the USS Caine, becomes so obsessed with finding the thief of some strawberries that he neglects his other duties, disrupts his crew, and eventually suffers a psychological breakdown. Wouk adapted his novel into the Broadway play The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial (1954) which starred Peter Fonda as Captain Queeg. That same year, the Oscar-nominated film starring Humphrey Bogart was released.

    • Eddie Janko: Let's move on Norma Rae.
      Norma Rae is the title of the 1979 American drama film staring Sally Field, directed by Martin Ritt and written by Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank Jr.
