  • So exciting! (Spoilers)

    It was an amazing episode! I'm very happy that Andy decided to join the special task force. She can use a break, especially after Sam confessed out of the blue that he loves her. I love Andy and Sam together but I'm not surprised by her reaction. And I like it that her partner is Nick. They were great together in "The Rules" and I think they can be good friends.

    Gail is back on duty. I'm happy about that but it seems to happened very fast. And Chris... I get it - he is excited to be a dad but he is overdoing it. Is he really ready to leave "the band" , all his friends and everything he achieved so far? For a girl he haven't seen for years and a child that may not be his? I hope he still will be a part of 15 Division.

    All in all I can't wait for next season! Why do we have to wait so long?:(moreless

    • Andy McNally: (very upset) You don't get to do this anymore, okay? I don't care if you're serious. I don't care if you're joking. I don't care anymore. So just leave me alone.
      Sam Swarek: I'm not gonna leave you alone. I screwed up, okay? Things got tough and I walked away. I thought I was doing the right thing!
      Andy McNally: Do you have any idea what you put me through? ou broke up with me in a parking lot and for six weeks I tried to contact you. You didn't answer one of my calls!
      Sam Swarek: Andy.
      Andy McNally: No!
      Sam Swarek: Andy, I'm -
      Andy McNally: Sam, it's too late! I'm sorry. I can't do this anymore.

    • Sam Swarek: (Andy's holding a grenade) I wish I was more like you.
      Andy McNally: What are you ...
      Sam Swarek: I wish you were in my head. I wish you could read my mind.
      Andy McNally: What are you talking about?
      Sam Swarek: I love you, Andy. (a tear rolls down Andy's cheek) I do.
      Andy McNally: Sam ... I'm holding a bomb.
      Sam Swarek: (wraps his hands around Andy's hand with the grenade) So am I.

    • Sam Swarek: (Arriving at work with Oliver) Oliver, don't clean my truck.
      Oliver Shaw: (cleaning Sam's truck) You know what? Somebody's gotta do it. It looks like you've been living in here. And don't, don't get me even started about your house.
      Sam Swarek: It was your idea to crash there, man.
      Oliver Shaw: Yeah, yeah. And I regretted it from the second that I waded through your front door. Listen man - this? This is not like you. (Oliver throws Sam the plastic bag he just filled with trash from Sam's truck)
      Sam Swarek: I want this. New me.
      Oliver Shaw: Yeah, well, the new you needs a cleaning lady. Or maybe a girlfriend, or, hey, maybe you could start by admitting that you that you made a mistake leaving your last one.
      Sam Swarek: I'm gonna get a coffee. Do you want a coffee?
      Oliver Shaw: No. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Come here. I'm serious. Sam, I know you don't wanna be alone. You just want to avoid the hard stuff. No, no, listen. Like changing, growing. And let me tell you, you don't grow, you die.

    • Andy McNally: (in Andy's kitchen making coffee) And even last night, you know, Sam was there playing pool with another girl, I wasn't even jealous. You know, all I kept thinking to myself was, that man never once told me anything about himself, never said "I love you". Never once made an effort to make things work when things got tough.
      Claire McNally: If you're gonna use the French press, you do one heaping tablespoon per cup.
      Andy McNally: Are you even listening to me?
      Claire McNally: Of course I'm listening to you.
      Andy McNally: Okay, well, then ... do you have any motherly thoughts?
      Claire McNally: Get over it.
      Andy McNally: I am over it. That's what I'm trying to tell you.
      Claire McNally: If you were over it you wouldn't be trying to tell me anything. You'd be focusing on this task force or signed up for, I don't know, scuba lessons.
