    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Kim is visited by the evaluator from the Family council she states that her son is a big fan of Sesame Street. Kim Raver (playing Kim) starred on that show when she was a kid.

      • The fictitious 55th Precinct and the area covered by the 55th Squad do not have realistic boundaries. Both houses are obviously located in in Queens, which is clearly apparent when they launch potatoes from the roof of the firehouse. The characters are constantly in Manhattan and in Brooklyn, with response scenes filmed on the 59th Street Bridge and Long Island City, Queens.

    • QUOTES (24)

      • Doc: Never again, Alex. Johnson says get out, you get out.
        Taylor: Johnson came down on you?
        Doc: Well, that's how it works, you defy an order under his command, that's on you, under my command, that's on me.
        Taylor: He knows I'm a firefighter.
        Doc: No, you're a paramedic, get that straight.
        Taylor: Well, maybe I'm both.
        Doc: Well, you can't be both.

      • Jimmy: How's she doin' Alex?
        Taylor: Her foot's pinned, it might be broken but other than that, she's doing just fine.
        Lt. Johnson: Alright, Taylor move out.
        Nazira: No don't leave me.
        Jimmy: I'll stay with you, sweetie. It's gonna be fine, I promise.
        Lt. Johnson: That's an order, Taylor, not a request. Move out.
        Taylor: No, we're doing fine, Lou.
        Lt. Johnson: You got no turnouts, you got no protection, you got no helmet, move out.
        Taylor: You gotta watch her foot when we bring this up with the mixer.
        Lt. Johnson (to Jimmy): She's just like her old man.

      • Davis: You seem to be in an awful good mood lately.
        Sully: What buyin' coffee for the homeless guy suddenly makes me Al Roker all of a sudden?
        Davis: Well, coffee for the homeless guy, you're hummin' a little tune as you're drivin' around.
        Sully: I don't hum.
        Davis: You've been humming. If I didn't know any better I'd say somebody's been getting it pretty good lately.
        Sully: What is it with you and this sex thing all the time?
        Davis: You can't deny it man, it's right there on your face. You finally shipped Tatiana's family back to Ukraine.
        Sully: That was weeks ago.
        Davis: Meaning weeks of non-stop hump-o-rama.
        Sully: Wrong.
        Davis: I'm wrong?
        Sully: Well, I mean, you know it's been good.
        Davis: Just good?
        Sully: Great, okay? But whatever it is that you see on my face is not just about sex.
        Davis: I'm just sayin' that you seem… content.
        Sully: Content, huh?
        Davis: Yes, content like marriage agrees with you.
        Davis: You seem to be in an awful good mood lately.
        Sully: What buyin' coffee for the homeless guy suddenly makes me Al Roker all of a sudden?
        Davis: Well, coffee for the homeless guy, you're hummin' a little tune as you're drivin' around.
        Sully: I don't hum.
        Davis: You've been humming. If I didn't know any better I'd say somebody's been getting it pretty good lately.
        Sully: What is it with you and this sex thing all the time?
        Davis: You can't deny it man, it's right there on your face. You finally shipped Tatiana's family back to Ukraine.
        Sully: That was weeks ago.
        Davis: Meaning weeks of non-stop hump-o-rama.
        Sully: Wrong.
        Davis: I'm wrong?
        Sully: Well, I mean, you know it's been good.
        Davis: Just good?
        Sully: Great, okay? But whatever it is that you see on my face is not just about sex.
        Davis: I'm just sayin' that you seem… content.
        Sully: Content, huh?
        Davis: Yes, content like marriage agrees with you.

      • Davis: Every summer we'd drive up to the Giants training camp. Simms, LT, Carson, that was our thing.
        Taylor: Your thing, huh?
        Davis: Yeah, it was what we did.
        Taylor: How old were you?
        Davis: Oh, um, in that picture I was 10.
        Taylor; No, I mean when um…
        Davis: 6 days after my 12th birthday.
        Taylor: You remember that?
        Davis: Certain details you do not forget. I mean, it kinda gets sketchy over time as it gets further away.
        Taylor: My dad's a Jets fan.
        Davis: Was he? (about the ring on Alex's necklace) Is that his wedding ring?
        Taylor: Oh, no. My mom wears his wedding ring. This was his 20 year ring from the squad and this is St. Fluorine. He gave it to me when I passed the test.

      • Taylor (making a face): Where do you want this lamp?
        Davis: What you think it's ugly?
        Taylor: You are so not gay.

      • Jimmy: I know I've made mistakes. And maybe I haven't been the best father, but do you ever stop to think that maybe that all changed the day you decided to wash down a fistful of pills with a bottle of wine? Tell me Kim, come on tell me. I really wanna know. Middle of the day, you were about to die, right there in the bathtub willing to be discovered by whoever walks in next. Knowing full well that it's going to be my 8 year old son!
        Kim: I wasn't thinking about that.
        Jimmy: Well, that's not good enough.
        Kim: I know. I know it's not good enough, okay? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. … But it's still one mistake and it's one that I will never make again, I swear. You can't take my baby away from me, please.

      • Taylor (voiceover): Nights are the worst, not on the job, but after, all alone… being still… the silence, which is not that silent anymore. I guess it's like that for a lot of people who lost somebody, not that, that makes it any easier. So, I do what I can to avoid the silence. I volunteer for extra shifts, visit with some of the guys' kids. The more I have to do, the less time there is to think about things. Things like, being angry, or sad or worst of all being afraid. Now, there was a dirty word in my house as a kid. 'Be brave and the world will respect you'. That's what my dad used to drill into us. As if we had the slightest idea what the word brave even meant. Like it was supposed to come natural to us. As kids of a legendary fire captain it should be in our blood, right? … Who the hell knows? It's probably why I went after this job in the first place. Just to show him. Show him I could be brave. Earn some of that respect he always talked about. Figured if I did this job long enough and well enough I might someday qualify as brave in his book. Not that I'll ever know that now… anyway, I can't think about that. My life's too busy.

      • Colleen Frewer: You would be Mr. Doherty?
        Jimmy: Jimmy, please.
        Kim: Look, don't start flirting with my associate now, okay?

      • Taylor: Is that the last of it?
        Carlos: There's one more box. Then lock it up when you're done.
        Taylor: Oh, guess again.
        Carlos: Come on. I left the van open.
        Davis: Better hurry up then.
        Taylor (referring to the cockatoo): Why don't you give him the key? He'll move it.
        Carlos: My bird's a she for your information.
        Taylor: Does she have a name?
        Carlos: Bird.
        Davis: Bird?
        Taylor: I can tell you two have really bonded.
        Carlos: Yeah. I'm not hung up on names. (walks off to go lock up the van)
        Davis: My roommate.
        Taylor: My sympathies.
        Davis: Thank you.
        Taylor: He thinks you're gay you know.
        Davis: He does, doesn't he? Well, I'm pretty sure he thinks you are, too.
        Taylor: Fine by me. Anything to discourage him.
        Davis: Ah, don't be so sure. Some guys dig lesbians.
        Taylor: Guys like you?
        Davis: Depends on the lesbian.

      • {about the lady in charge of the nursing home}
        Sully: Why were you busting her chops?
        Tatiana: She needs chops busted.

      • Carlos: I still have a king sized bed in the hall.
        Taylor: You know, as much as it creeps me out to touch it, Carlos, I'll help you with that.

      • Carlos (about Ty's bed): So what's this, a-a... queen?
        Davis: Yes, yes, a queen. A big 'ol queen.

      • Margo Rodriguez (about Joey's friends): All girls?
        Kim: Mostly. Apple doesn't fall far, I guess.

      • (about his putting his mother in the nursing home)
        Sully: Look, you don't know the Sophie's choice I went through deciding to put her there in the first place.
        Tatiana: Who is Sophie?

      • Sully: I didn't marry Tatiana so she can be my mother's caretaker. She's my mother, she's my responsibility.
        Davis: Okay. Back to the home she goes.

      • (they get a call for a suspicious powder)
        Faith: 99 percent of these calls are bogus and you probably have no reason to suspect that somebody would target you.
        Lou: Then what's the problem?
        Bosco: Problem is you got two cops here who aren't about to go down in history for letting that one percent get away that takes out the entire Eastern Seaboard. Now, back the hell up! (Bosco and Faith walk back to the car to wait for Haz Mat)
        Faith: You're getting pretty good at that speech.
        Bosco: Yeah, well, you say it enough times in the day. What are you gonna do?
        Faith: That sick bastard, he's probably sittin' in a window somewhere enjoying the show with his little gonads in hand.
        Bosco: Screw jail time. You know what we should do? Parachute these jag offs right into Osama land.
        Faith: Yeah, after a sex change.
        Bosco: Amen.

      • Bosco: Imagine that, Hazmat's backed up.

      • Faith: All I want is some Harry Potter Lego's.
        Bosco: Excuse me?
        Faith: Well, that's all I should be thinking about this time of the year. We got shut out all over town.
        Bosco: For Lego's?
        Faith: No, Harry Potter Lego's. Fred and I were just happy that Charlie finally found some books that he liked to read, you know, we never counted on the movie and the merchandising.
        Bosco: Hey, that's where I get most of my reading done. The Godfather, Jaws, Silence of the Lambs. I 'read' them all. (Faith laughs)

      • Lombardo: What kitchen planner puts a gas valve behind a 400-pound stove?

      • Nazira: You won't leave me?
        Taylor: I got nowhere else to be.

      • Jimmy: Any update on our gas bill?
        Lombardo (over radio): Keyspan just got here.
        Jimmy: If they'd hurry, we'd appreciate it.

      • Sully: So much for business as usual, huh?
        Davis: Yeah, those days are long gone.
        Bosco: These jokers, I swear. Haz Mat cleared the dental office. Corn starch, again.
        Faith: Those bastards got me.
        Sully: Who?
        Faith: 'Who'? Them. I knew that powder was crap. And I would've known that fire was just a fire. But with them happening, you know so close together. At that moment they succeeded. They had me wonderin' they got me good.
        Sully: Anybody else read in the paper how some 200 abortion clinics have gotten envelopes with white powder in them?
        Bosco: Oh, yeah. Like the Taliban over there are serious right to lifers.
        Davis: Well, as long as people are scaring easily, there's idiots happy to scare them.
        Faith: The other day at Emily's school, her and like nine of her classmates go down to the nurses office complaining of stomach pains and Fred goes nuts. You know, along with all the other parents jumpin' to conclusions. Thinkin' it's like Scarlett Fever or Anthrax, or the Andaman strain.
        Davis: What was it?
        Faith: Tuna. Two day old tuna fish.
        Bosco: They're makin' us nuts.
        Davis: Yeah, we're letting 'em.

      • Doc: No fatalities…not one.

      • Davis: Zero fatalities, perfect score. Jimmy said that you were pretty great.
        Taylor: Do you miss him? Your dad?
        Davis: Yeah, sure.
        Taylor: All the time?
        Davis: No, just certain times, you know.
        Taylor: That thing you said about forgetting, you know, as it gets farther away. … I don't wanna forget.
        Davis: Well, I said I forget the details, but him… My dad, my sense of him, that never goes away. I mean, to this day if I'm yellin' at the giants on TV or I hear a Motown song on the radio, or I'm eatin' peanut butter on cheese crackers… Man could polish off a box and a jar in one sitting.
        Taylor: That's how my dad was with apples, by the bushel.
        Davis: Don't get me wrong, you could eat a hundred apples and not think of him. But then you'll bite into that one, somehow you just feel him. It's like he's right there with you. It's weird.
        Taylor: I used to be afraid of the dark, as a kid, you know, bed time. And my dad would always come in and tell me 'any daughter of mine is too brave to be afraid'. I know I didn't feel brave, so I'd just pretend. I figured if I could make him think I was, maybe that'd be good enough.
        Davis: Was it?
        Taylor: It worked today.
