      • Rose (about Nicole): She's a wonderful girl.
        Bosco: You don't have to say that for me, ma.
        Rose: Anybody who can go drink for drink with me and stay standing is alright in my book. Especially since she's so in love with my son.
        Bosco: Sometimes I think about after dad left. I think about... I think about how you raised us, by yourself. You still worked... but you were always there. You were always there for us.

      • Kim: Look... You hurt me in a lotta ways, Jimmy, but you've always have had faith in me. No matter how messed up things... No matter how messed up I got...
        Jimmy: What are you talkin' about?
        Kim: Let me just... I'm sorry. I'm sorry for all the times that I never believed in you. Maybe if I had, you and I would still...
        Jimmy: Nah, don't. Don't blame yourself for me, Kim.

      • Doc: What's going with you and your girl?
        Carlos: She's not my girl.
        Doc: Okay, fine. What's going on between you and Vangie?
        Carlos: Nothing.
        Doc: Nothing? That's why we're parked in front of her place, waiting for her to come home 'cause nothing's going on between you two.

      • (Ty is reading emails from women after he set Sully up on an online dating site)
        Sully: Davis, you don't seem to understand that I don't need your help meeting anybody, and I definatly don't need your help hooking up with some freak from a webnig--- Whatever the hell it's called.
        Davis: You know, you know how to suck the romance right out of internet dating.

      • (Davis is reading an email from a woman after he sent Sully up on an internet dating site)
        Sully: Law enforcement official? You forget how to spell 'cop'?

      • Carlos: I've had time to things, and we should talk about your options. Maybe if there was something that you wanted to do...
        Vangie: Something what?
        Carlos: We're both young. This really isn't a time for either of us to be having a kid, so like I said, if... If there's something that you wanted to do.
        Vangie: So, what are you gonna do? Gimme a 100 bucks and a ride to the abortion clinic?
        Carlos: Maybe that'd be the best thing.
        Vangie: You son of a bitch. You don't even care, and you can't even fake it. Hurt me now, miss me later.

      • (cleaning out the ambulance looking for the watch)
        Bobby: Anything?
        Kim: 84 cents and a, oh... Britney Spears tape.
        Bobby: I'll take the 84 cents.

      • Faith: I mean, about those kids. You're getting kind of hung up on that little one.
        Bosco: And you're not?
        Faith: I don't know, I'm kinda hung up on what kind of son of a bitch beats his own children.
        Bosco: Same kind of son of a bitch who'd beat his wife, and steal from her, and start a fire to cover it.
        Faith: Theory.
        Bosco: You got a better one? I wanna know where the hell social services was on all this. They didn't know that those kids were gettin' beat?
        Faith: The mother was probably gettin' abused herself and she's probably too afraid to tell anybody.
        Bosco: What about school? Teachers?
        Faith: You got 30 students a class, 6 classes a day. I mean, teacher's are lucky they can remember their student's faces.
        Bosco: Families don't work, schools don't work. The system's a joke. Who the hell's supposed to be looking out for kids?
        Faith: Me. You.

      • Kim (about Vangie's suicide attempt): Looks like an overdose.
        Bobby: Looks like a performance at the Met.

      • Sully: Sunder Walker, you're under arrest.
        Sunder: For what?
        Davis: Assault in the second degree. I know it's a tongue twister. You'll have the next three to five to practice it.

      • Sully: Kids with guns. How'd it ever get to be when a 13 year old goes out and gets a piece and thinks he has to do something about the guy who beat his sister up?
        Davis: Well, maybe he thinks he's gotta do somethin' 'cause he figures that we wouldn't.
        Sully: It's our job to do somethin'.
        Davis: Yeah, but if you're young and you're black and you read about people taking 40 bullets and broomsticks from the cops who are supposed to be protecting you, then when there's trouble who do you trust? The cops or yourself?

      • Bobby: I miss winter.
        Kim: You miss the cold?
        Bobby: I miss the dark. I'm a night person.
        Kim: Transfer to Alaska. It's dark all day in winter.
        Bobby: Yeah, thought about it. You can't get good bagels in Alaska.

      • Kim: If city equipment were any less durable, it would be made out of tissue paper.

      • Malcolm: When have you ever once done right by me?
        Davis: I'm doing it now.

      • Doc (to Moralas): I'm trying to get past the things I've lost. Trying to learn how to appreciate the things I have. And I can't think of a better way to do both than by starting a life here, with you.

      • Bosco: Great, we get to direct traffic for the bucket boys. If this isn't the start of a great day, I don't know what the hell is.

      • Bosco: My mother's birthday is tonight. 50 years.
        Faith: Aw, well tell her congrats from me.
        Bosco: Nicole says that she wants to go to the party.
        Faith: You asked her, good for you. It's about time that you introduce her to your family.
        Bosco: I don't know.
        Faith: What, you havin' second thoughts?
        Bosco: I'm just not sure the night for Nicole to meet my mother is the night her bitter, divorced friends gather her up, get her drunk on light beer, and carve up a penis birthday cake, while some male stripper writes "Happy 50th, Rose" in the air with his unit.

      • Carlos: Vangie's not my problem.
        Doc: Not your problem?! She's carrying your baby.
        Carlos: So she says.
        Doc: You don't beelieve her?
        Carlos: The girl is four short of a six pack. For all I know, she could show up nursing a Tickle-Me-Elmo, telling me how it looks just like me.
        Doc: What if she shows up with a baby that looks just like you?
        Carlos: What am I supposed to do? I'm 22. I'm barely making ends now. I'm supposed to take on a wife and a kid? Look, there are some things that I want in life, and I'm not about to let some crazy girl and her maybe baby stop me from getting them.
