    After Time



    Somehow I missed this episode until today. Having served as a Paramedic for almost 10 years it was very difficult to watch. I can't imagine what it was like enduring all of the loss of coworkers, friends and family. Third Watch handled this subject matter with respect for the lost and the ones left behind, also lost. The characters were believable; it offered hope with the birth of the baby. Hope that life could return back to normal with the Monday night barbeque, only to have it cut short by finding one of their own. I am so disappointed that this show has been canceled. Working the streets is just like what you see on the screen. God Bless all of the Firefighters, Paramedics, Port Authority workers and NYPD. Never Forgetmoreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Carlos: I cannot believe Doc did this. I don't mean that as a dis on you, I mean dumping me like he did.
      Taylor: He needs to work with Kim.
      Carlos: Why can't you work with Kim?
      Taylor: Carlos, this is not my choice.

    • Davis: A day off.
      Sully: Yeah. I don't even remember what that feels like.
      Davis: Feels kinda strange, like I shouldn't be takin' it.

    • Faith (about the people still showing support for them): It's amazing, huh?
      Bosco: Ten days later, they're still here. I figured it'd last for a day or two, it's incredible.
      Faith: Maybe everything has changed.

    • Faith: Bosco's gonna be here in like 15 minutes.
      Fred: So you're okay now?
      Faith: No, I'm late now!
      Fred: But you're up.

    • Fred: How much longer are these 12 hour shifts gonna be?
      Yokas: I don't know. They didn't say.
      Fred: The kids miss you. Emily especially.

    • Lt. Johnson: I was studying for the captain's test. I thought I might pass it this time.
      Jimmy: You'd make a great captain.
      Lt. Johnson: They'd assign me to another house. I want to stay here now.

    • Catherine: I didn't know you were back on the payroll with the department.
      Kim: I'm not.
      Catherine: You mean you're going down there every night and you don't have to?
      Kim: Lots of people are volunteering.
      Catherine: Lots of people haven't been through what you've been through.
      Kim: No, they've been through much worse.
      Catherine: Jimmys been workin' every day, then goin' down there every night. Which means he isn't seeing that much of Joey.
      Kim: I'll stop by this afternoon.
      Catherine: ... Look, if you want to do something to help, go back to work... and help the living instead of digging through that tragic pile of rubble every night.

    • Sully (to Sergi): I was sleeping until your concert.

    • Tatiana: You got up?
      Sully: I didn't want to miss the party.

    • Davis (seeing Bosco and Faith in their formal uniforms): Who?
      Faith: Tommy Battiglia. We were at the academy with him.
      Bosco (about his formal uni): I remember when I only wore this thing for parades.
      Davis (sighs): I feel like I haven't left this place in weeks, man.
      Bosco: That's 'cause you haven't.
      Faith: I have no idea what my kids have been up to.
      Bosco: No news is probably good news.
      Faith: Fred's been amazing. He does everything now. All I have to do is... get out of bed and come to work.
      Bosco: That's good, 'cause that's all we been doin'. I wonder which barricade we'll be guarding today. I just wanna be a cop again.
      Davis: The mayor asked the governor to send in the National Guard, take over the checkpoints downtown.
      Faith: That's great. A bunch of kids in camoflauge with M-16's flung over their shoulders. (to Sully) Hey.
      Sully: Hey.
      Davis: You get any rest?
      Sully: Not much.
      Davis: Yeah, me neither.
      Sully: Oh yeah, you got a Ukrainian carnival at your house too?

    • Carlos (about people thanking them): You know, I can't get used to this.
      Doc: Yeah, I guess it's nice. People showing their apperciation.
      Carlos: They wanna show their apperciation, they could start by paying us more.
      Doc: I think that's more like a city hall thing.
      Carlos: Guy can make a million dollars in one day on Wall Street. You don't see him running into a burning building for $35,000 a year. Vote for a bond measure to up our salaries and leave the signs at home.

    • Faith: Charlie's been having nightmares. He wants me to quit. He thinks that I should be doing something else. He brings it up everytime that I see him.
      Bosco: Aw, hell, who could blame 'em? I'm thinking about quitting and doing something else.
      Faith: Really?
      Bosco: You haven't thought about it? After all this?
      Faith: Yeah... So, are you?
      Bosco: And let that skinny little bearded bastard think he beat me? Hell no. Give me a parachute and a pistol and drop me in there. I'll shoot him in the head myself.

    • Davis (about Taylor): Is she all right?
      Jimmy: Her father's a chief, still missing.

    • Walsh (about Taylor): She going back down there tonight?
      Lombardo: Yep.
      Walsh: You think that's a good idea?
      Jimmy: You tell her she can't.

    • Sully: Well, we'll see you guys day after tomorrow.
      Faith: Lucky bastards.
      Davis: We'll be here when you're off.
      Faith: Yeah, if Christopher ever gives us one!
      Bosco: I feel like we aren't doing our job.
      Faith: No?
      Bosco: No. There's been a crime committed and we aren't doing anything about it. Can't do anything about it 'cause there's no one to catch.
      Faith: Well, there's no one we can catch.
      Bosco: Same thing.

    • Faith: You alright?
      Bosco: I'm fine.
      Faith: Are you sure?
      Bosco: Yeah, I'm fine.
      Faith: You wanna come over for dinner? Fred and the kids would love to see 'ya.
      Bosco: No, they wouldn't.
      Faith: They'll get over it.
      Bosco: I'm okay. Alright? Thanks.
      Faith: You goin' back down?
      Bosco: Yep.
      Faith: Get some sleep, Bosco.
      Bosco: You, too.

    • Davis: Hey.
      Taylor: Hey. You lost?
      Davis: Yeah, can you, uh, tell me where to heroes are? I heard they were here.
      Taylor: Only if you brought a casserole.
      Davis: Oh, you don't want anything I cooked.
      Taylor: Same here.
      Davis: What's this?
      Taylor: All that's left of our engine. (sets down the toy fire truck) I had one just like it when I was a kid. All the other girls had Barbies, I had a fire truck.
      Davis: Yeah, all mine were police cars.

    • Davis: You know, my father died in the line. Um...
      Taylor: Oh, he's missing. We haven't found him yet.
      Davis: Oh, right. Sorry, I didn't--
      Taylor: No, I mean, I know there's not much hope. But, you don't know him, he's ... strong.
      Davis: I'm gonna get going. You know where to find me if you wanna talk or hang out, or... exchange recipes.

    • Davis: Why you didn't eat before the shift?
      Sully: There's no food in my refrigerator. Davis, they are the fish sticks that have been frozen into the permafrost of my freezer for the last three years.
      Davis: So, they're all still there?
      Sully: Yeah. I'm spending 300 dollars a week on food, and I'm ordering take out every night.
      Davis: It seems to me this problem can be easily solved. Marry her.
      Sully: Where the hell am I supposed to find the time to go and do that?
      Davis: You got the license already, right?
      Sully: Yeah.
      Davis: So, in your 50 years on the job you haven't made friends with some judge that can help you out? Just take her down to city hall.
      Sully: 21 years.

    • Sully: 20 years in here I can't get a free refill on a cup of coffee, now I can't pay for my own sandwich.
      Davis: Oh, you'll pay for it. (taps Sully's stomach)

    • Doc: Kim's coming back to work.
      Carlos: Really?
      Doc: I want her to work with me. I need to keep an eye on her.
      Carlos: What am I supposed to do?
      Doc: Well, Johnson wants Taylor a medic again. Just for a little while, get her off the squad.
      Carlos: Alex Taylor?
      Doc: Yeah, she's wrung out, man. I mean, with all that's happened, and with her father.
      Carlos: We're all beat, so what? I'm supposed to carry her load?
      Doc: Come on, man, she's good. She wouldn't let you carry her load even if you wanted her to.
      Carlos: Wh- What's this about? You just wanna get away from me?
      Doc: No.
      Carlos: Two years, and then you just dump me off the bus?
      Doc: I'm not dumping you. Kim's been off, she needs help. I'm senior guy, she's gonna ride with me for a while and that's it.
      Carlos: Thanks a lot.

    • Yokas: I don't think I'll ever get used to it.
      Bosco: What?
      Yokas: The downtown skyline. You think it'll ever be normal again, Bos?
      Bosco: What's normal?
      Yokas: The way it was.
      Bosco: No.

    • Taylor: Doc? She's crowning.
      Kim: What?
      Carlos: Are you serious?
      Taylor: I'm not joking about this.

    • DK: Any one else gettin' sick of this hero crap?
      Walsh: You know my neighbor's starting to cut my lawn now? I didn't ask him to, he just started doing it.
      Lombardo: Send him to my place.
      Carlos: How's he feel about painting?
      Walsh: I don't know, his place looks like crap.
      Lombardo: What about plumbing? I got a stopped toilet for about a week now.
      Jimmy: You do the same damn thing here, man.
      Walsh: What the hell do you eat, man?
      Lombardo: Your cooking.
      Jimmy: Now that makes you a hero.
      Walsh: Kiss my ass.

    • Carlos: I'll make the beans.
      Doc: Yeah, here. But not too much brown sugar this time, okay? It's not a dessert item.

    • Lt. Johnson (to the people in the neighborhood): Thank you.

    • Faith: Thanks.
      Fred: For what?
      Faith: Taking care of the kids and everything. You've been amazing.
      Fred: I've been worried about you.
      Faith: I'm fine.
      Fred: You sure?
      Faith: I'm alive.
