  • Tommy faces dangers at home and at work

    Tommy must face dangers each and everyday and not at

    Just at the fire department with death defying stunts but

    Also at home where his homelife makes his job look like

    A cakewalk. You really feel very sorry for Tommy despite

    Him being a butthole and jerky. But also can't help but admire him and the dedication he puts to his job and with his fellow firefighters!
  • The episodes are just flying by now. (Spoilers)

    This was another pivotal episode of Rescue Me, showing Tommy lose his mom and his dog in the same episode. Tommy's life just isn't going very well, and he said it best when he said his life was purgatory. That's basically what his life has become since 9/11. He keeps pulling dangerous stunts on the job, and I think it's because he's starting to hate his life. Maybe things will get better for him, but judging by the way things are going right now; I don't think anything good will happen to Tommy anytime soon. I also don't agree with how the crew is treating the new female firefighter. I know they feel a little betrayed, and she may be a little demanding, but she's still doing her job. Overall, I give this episode, Mom, a 9 out of 10.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Tommy (to Laura): Let me tell you something, sister, you serve two purposes in this house-- you can give me a blow job or make me a sandwich. I'm not in the mood for head and I had a late breakfast, so you're shit out of luck.

    • (About his picture in the calendar)
      Tommy: You look like the Marlboro Man.
      Sean: Really?
      Tommy: Yeah. If the Marlboro Man smoked cock instead of cigarettes.

    • Franco: I'm tellin' ya brother. Havin' your picture in this calendar is like having a license to mint pussy.
      Lou: "Mint pussy." May be one of the worst Ben & Jerry flavors of all time.

    • Tommy: Did you go outside like that?
      Uncle Teddy: Like what?
      Tommy: Like that. With your joint hangin' out.
      Uncle Teddy: Hey, you got issues with the human body, that's your problem. That's your shame-based religious upbringing rearing its ugly head.
      Tommy: Speakin' of ugly heads.
      Uncle Teddy: Don't lay your issues on me. I got no problem being naked.
      Tommy: Oh, yeah? Why don't you go upstairs and look in the mirror? I think there's more than one problem goin' on down there.

    • Tommy: What's this?
      John Sr.: What's it look like?
      Tommy: It looks like a joint.
      John Sr.: Well, then that's what it is.

    • Tommy: Want me to make some coffee?
      John Sr.: Nah, your coffee sucks.

    • (After they found out they were cheating on each other)
      Lou: Are you gonna stop seein' him?
      Phyllis: Are you gonna stop seein' her?
      Lou: Who is this guy?
      Phyllis: Who's the girl?
      Lou: Do I know 'em?
      Phyllis: Do I know her?
      Lou: You know what? Maybe, maybe we shouldn't be asking questions right now.
      Phyllis: Maybe not.
      Lou: You know what? Lemme just say this, okay? If you told me, what you told me and I didn't have somethin' goin' on the side, I would have been so goddamn pissed you wouldn't even believe.
      Phyllis: Well, you know, I'd be pissed too.

    • (After they got into a huge fight)
      Sheila: This is butter-scotch pudding I made this afternoon. I was gonna let you lick it off my tits. But you blew it! Forget it!
      Tommy: Oh yeah? Well, you sh--should have mentioned the pudding first!

    • Laura: Hey, I don't mean to be a pain in the balls.
      Lou: Too late.
