  • Another superb character development episode. (Spoilers)

    9.5
    I'm still continuing to enjoy Rescue Me even after almost two seasons. =] I definitely liked this episode, but it's not perfect. I hope Tommy gets his own anti-depressant pills, because him being dishonest with his wife is not the right thing to do. Also, he needs to keep taking the pills, because when he stopped taking them in this episode, he really hurt someone. I don't like that Franco keeps being dishonest. If he had just told the truth to Laura in the first place, things would still be going strong for them. Overall, I give this episode, **** a 9.5 out of 10.moreless
  • This episode was awesome. Franco is something else, he need to quit lying and get hid act strait.

    9.2
    It was good, the best I've seen for a while. The backround music weas awesome and well picked. Who ever picked it knows what good music is. Tommy is crazy, what is up with those pills. Producers need to rethink the pills. And Franco's rule was really well played. However Sean could step it up a little.
  • Story lines following as expected. However, rift between Franco is exasperated by each dating others.

    9.0
    This episode moved along well but as usual, there was the scene that had me laughing out loud and rolling on the floor. I must say, there is someone very sick on your writing staff, but I love it!! The scene was when the \"porn star\" came to the station to allegedly date Franco. It was an absolutely perfect setup...until she walked around the counter. I laughed so hard, at the looks of the other fireman, that I m still sore today. This was just like the vet episode with the monkey. Absolutely great writing. Keep me laughing!!moreless

    • (After Tommy just drank orange juice that had pulp in it)
      Janet: Since when do you hate pulp?
      Tommy: Ever since they started takin' the time to take the goddamn pulp out. Since then, okay?
      Janet: Honey, I'm sorry. I didn't know you had a thing with the pulp.
      Tommy: Yeah. I hate all pulp. I hate orange juice pulp. I hate that stupid British band named Pulp. Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino, what's with that goddamn head by the way. Is that not the biggest head in the history of heads? He turns sideways it's like you're lookin' at a map of the New Jersey coastline. And Kill Bill what a piece of shit. And then there's a Kill Bill 2 what's that about? Jesus Christ.
      Janet: Tommy, the kids.
      Tommy: Kids, when you grow up don't see either one of the Kill Bill's they both suck, okay?

    • (playing Scrabble)
      Laura: Do you hear that crackling sound? That's the sound of my ovaries drying up. Come on!
      Sean (putting letters down): Okay. Here you go. What do you think about this?
      Laura: Cock...again?
      Sean: What you can't use the same word twice?
      Laura: Oh, sure you can. Especially if it has more than one meaning.
      Sean: Right.
      Laura: Such as?
      Sean (pauses): Uh...If this is gonna turn into 20 questions it's a load of bullshit. (they all laugh) That's very funny.

    • Uncle Teddy (referring to all the cats in the house): Jeez. My entire life I've dreamed about being knee-deep in pussy. But this isn't what I had in mind.

    • Franco: Oh, shit. Sean Garrity readin' a book. That's the first sign of the apocalypse.

    • Sean: Wait a second. Auto-fellatio means you can suck your own schlong?
      Lou: Yes.
      Sean: Oh. I thought it meant gettin' a blow job while you're in a car.
      (Tommy laughs, but Sean doesn't)
      Tommy: That's funny. You didn't know it was funny. That's even funnier.

    • Chief (seeing Sean and Mike play Scrabble): Look at this: A meeting of the minds and the minds are a no-show.
      Tommy (looking at the Scrabble board): Hmm. "Tag." "Arm." "It." "Go." That's great guys.
      Laura: Why even bother keepin' score?
      Mike (placing tiles on the board): F-E-L-L. Read it and weap.
      Sean: Oh, shit. How many points? (Sean and Mike just stare at each other, Mike takes a little time to figure it out)
      Mike: Eight.

    • John Sr.: She was a good woman, Tommy.
      Tommy: You always said she was a goddamn nightmare.
      John Sr.: Well, that was before the cats ate her.

    • Tommy: There isn't a job on the whole goddamn planet I'd rather do than this one... because everyday you do feel like you've made a difference, like you gave somehting back, ya know?

    • Franco: I don't know if I can believe you or not, Tom. See the Tommy Gavin I used to know was a lyin', cheatin', schemin', brawlin', skirt-chasin' son of a bitch. I looked up to him. You always knew where he stood, but this new Tommy, this, uh, fancy coffee-drinkin', pastry-eatin', kind, sweet, sincere one, uh-uh, Bro, I don't trust him as far as I can throw him.

  • NOTES (2)

    • In this episode Tommy's hockey helmet is emblazoned with a "W 6" logo on the front.
      "W 6" stands for "Worcester Six" which represents and memorializes six firefighters lost on December 3, 1999, in the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse fire in his hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts. Leary's cousin, Jerry Lucey, and childhood friend, Lt. Thomas Spencer were killed.
