    • {into her tape recorder/voiceover} Breene: Paramedic Parker’s breakdown left an immeasurable hole in the fabric of life in that firehouse. Mr. Parker seems to have become a sort of surrogate father for these employees and apparently helped them through difficulties encountered during and after 9/11. This role as father almost certainly contributed to his feeling that it was left to him to rectify what he saw as the closing of the 5-5 and therefore the destruction of his family.

    • Fred: She starts riding with her old friend Bosco tomorrow. Yokas: Fred… Fred: The kids should know you might not be coming home tomorrow night. Yokas: Fred! Charlie: What? Yokas: Charlie, daddy didn’t mean that. Fred: I didn’t? Yokas: No, because you couldn’t be that stupid.

    • {about Mikey} Rose: He’s clean. Bosco: I’ve heard that before. Rose: He’s got a job now. Bosco: I’ve heard that too.

    • {to Bosco and Mikey} Rose: We’re gonna sit like normal people and eat lasagna. Is that too much to ask? You’re brothers for God’s sake.

    • {to Breene} Carlos: Are we finished sitting here staring at each other yet?
