Nicole: If she (Lt. Nordstrom) weren't a woman, how would you feel about her?
Kevin: I would feel she was the worst damn Lieutenant who ever set foot in a squad room.
Tom: That's not exactly fair. Nobody starts off knowing how to run a squad.
Nicole: It can't be easy filling Jim's shoes. She's got to understand that.
Kevin: I am not asking her to fill Jim's shoes. I just think she ought to know to listen.
Nicole: Did it ever occur to you that she might be unsure of herself?
Kevin: Yeah it occurred to me. I think it should occur to her.
Nicole: I think she's scared.
Tom: Makes sense to me.
