    • Kim: Look, I wanna ask you something? When did you get the idea going, huh? Was it those weeks you spent at our house when you couldn't an apartment? Or was it when you asked to baby sit when I was workin' nights? Melanie: Are you gonna punish me forever? Kim: You slept with my husband. Melanie: I'm so sorry. Kim: In my bed, Melanie. You're my sister. Melanie: It was a mistake. Kim: After a year and a half that's all that you could come up with? Melanie: Is that what you came here to talk about? Kim: I need to know, how did you seduce Jimmy? Melanie: You think that I seduced him? Kim: I need to know, what it was that I did wrong. I mean, did I invite you over too often? I mean, should I have put you in cab instead of making Jimmy take you home, is that it? Melanie: Look, I don't know what you want me to say. If I knew, I'd say it. Kim: I wanna know how to get woman like you away from my husband. Melanie: Oh, my God. You're back together again? Kim: Wasn't I enough? Melanie: Kim, please... Kim: Oh, you know what, Melanie, just forget it.

    • Bobby: He's gettin' married, Kim. Get on with your life. Kim: Look, I want my life back, okay? Bobby: He screwed your sister, Kim and you chased after him. He gets engaged and there you are again. Kim: Yeah, we belong together. You know, we would've been fine if it wasn't for her. Bobby: Who? Melanie? No wonder you can't explain this divorce to Joey. You don't understand it yourself. You think that you're doin' this for son, Kim? You're dead wrong. This is all about you. Kim: You don't get it.

    • Bobby: So, were you able to get into the mind of Joey Doherty? Kim: No mystery, he just wants his family back. Bobby: Yeah, right, he set the fire for attention try to get his mom and dad back. How'd you get around that? (Kim is silent) Oh, no. Kim: What? Bobby: Nothin', I already know. Kim: What do you already know? Bobby: You slept with him. Kim: Absolutley not. Bobby: Really? Kim: Didn't happen. I told Jimmy that I loved him. Bobby: What?! Kim: We're making another go of it. Bobby: Kim, you're son tried to burn his school down. Did you talk at all about that? Kim: Look, we're working it out, okay? That's what we need to do. Bobby: You're supposed to help Joey understand that his life is okay, even though his parents aren't. Kim: Meaning what? You know, Joey's my son, I know what he needs. It's not really all that complicated. Bobby: Kim, you told him that you loved him. Kim: Yeah, I do. Bobby: You don't. Kim: You know, I really don't need your help right now.

    • Carlos: You get called for review yet? Kim: The baby lived. Carlos: Yeah, lucky for you. Kim: What's that supposed to mean? Carlos: Look, next time you wanna start hacking limbs off, just make sure I'm nowhere near. Kim: You better stay clear then, 'cause I'd do it again. Doc: You do it around me again, and I'll write you up myself. Kim: I was doing my job. Doc: Is that what that was, huh? Making your own rules? Kim: It was a judgement call. The woman was dead, you would've done the same thing. Doc: Maybe, maybe not. The point is, you did it the wrong way and I don't apperciate being forced into backing you up. Kim: Doc, I saved that baby. Doc: It went well for you, great. I'm getting major grief from Morales and our district supervisor, you're not putting me in that position again. That's it, I don't wanna hear anymore about it.

    • Kim (voiceover): They say if you have more than one of something, you're a collector. I guess that makes me a professional. I don't know when it happened. I woke up one morning with 16 leather jackets, vintage. I can't seem to throw anything away. I guess I'm not the comfortable with change. I moved around so much when I was a kid. New apartments, new schools, new dads, new stuff. I got to where I hung onto stuff. I realize that I should clean house, but it's hard figuring out what's important.

    Trivia (2)

    • Continuity problem: Kim and Bobby have already finished at least on call on their shift when they are called to Joey's school. If they work the "Third Watch" and start work at 3:00 pm Joey should have been long out of school by this time.

    • When Kim and Bobby witness the car crash, Kim tells dispatch that they are at Fulton Street and the Brooklyn Bridge, which would put them either in downtown Manhattan or Brooklyn, very far from the uptown area that the 55 squad covers.
