Episode Summary

Alone Again, Naturally
After she realizes that telling the truth will mean a prison sentence and never seeing her children again, Faith reluctantly agrees to go along with Maritza's cover story that she shot Mann as he was trying to stab Maritza; Yoshi slips out of the cuffs and into the wind; Sasha and Ty hook up; Maritza gets a tough new boss who's been charged with keeping her on a very short leash to curb her renegade ways; Faith goes ballistic when Fred has her served her with divorce papers at the station house; Swersky shuffles the partnerships, and assigns Faith to ride with Sully and Sasha to ride with Ty; Maritza gets an anonymous call that there's an I.A.B. plant in the house who's after her, and she immediately suspects that it's her new boss; Faith decides to turn down the promotion to detective that she's offered for saving Maritza's life until Sully reminds her that the new assignment will improve her chances of getting custody of her children; Bosco's surgeon gives Faith a devastating prognosis about his recovery; after Ty refuses to listen to Sasha about how they should handle a car stop and the situation goes south, Sasha refuses to back up Ty's decision to make things right by falsifying the paperwork; the I.A.B. captain in charge of the Mann investigation doubts that Faith and Maritza are telling the truth about what really transpired, and has an after-hours meeting with his plant, who isn't Maritza's new boss after all.moreless

    • QUOTES (48)

      • Yokas: What are you doing?
        Cruz: He drew a knife and tried to stab me, so you shot him.
        Yokas: I shot him because he killed my partner.

      • Cruz: He was already in custody.
        Yokas: I know.
        Cruz: Say it. He drew and tried to stab me.

      • Yokas: Stay out of this.
        Cruz: You shot a handcuffed prisoner.
        Yokas: I know what I did. I don't care.

      • Cruz: We don't have much time.
        Yokas: There is no "we."
        Cruz: Think about it.
        Yokas: I'm not going in on a lie with you.

      • Cruz: This is prison we're talking about. It's murder. You'll never see your family again.
        Yokas: What the hell do you care what happens to me?
        Cruz: He started the day trying to put you, me, and Bosco out of commission. Now, you do what you're thinking, and he got two out of three. It's not about you, or me. It's about not letting him win. Now say it! He drew the knife and tried to stab me.

      • {arriving on the roof}
        Swersky: Why are you wet?
        Cruz: I went in to check on him.

      • Swersky: What happened?
        Cruz: Ask Officer Yokas. {to Yokas} Tell him.
        Yokas: He drew a knife and tried to stab Cruz, so I shot him.

        Davis: I'll get the lights.
        Monroe: Knight in shining armor, huh?
        Davis: Yeah, I wish. It would've helped when that guy was kicking my ass.
        Monroe: You saved my life.
        Davis: I could argue it was the other way around.

      • IAB Cop: Looks like a whole lot of justifiable shooting to me.
        Cruz: Easiest time I've ever had with IAB.
        IAB Cop: Hey, well, we're not always the enemy.

      • Captain Finney: So when I heard there was a shooting at the 5-5 tonight, how'd I know you were gonna be involved?
        Cruz: You didn't call to see if I was all right?
        Capt. Finney: I went down to the morgue. I wanted to see this Donald Mann myself.
        Cruz: I bet he looks good in a drawer.

      • Cruz: Are you accusing me of something?
        Captain Finney: Not yet, Sergeant.
        Cruz: You know where I'll be.
        Captain Finney: Yeah, and I know where you're going.

      • {about Bosco}
        Yokas: When will he be able to go back to work?
        Doctor: Officer Yokas, your partner's never going back to work. I mean, he'll be lucky if he can walk, talk, or feed himself. I'm sorry.

      • Yokas: Hey, Bosco. I just talked to the doctor and, uh…he said you're gonna be all right. So is your mom. She's still here but she's better…And hey, about Donald Mann. I just want you to know that I took care of that for you, okay? I…it's over. I took care of that for you.

      • Swersky: Welcome back. Have a good three days?
        Cruz: You know I'd rather be here.
        Swersky: Yeah, but I don't know why.

      • Cruz: Any word on Bosco?
        Swersky: Nothing good.
        Cruz: Yeah, he's tough. He'll be back.

      • Cruz: This is my office.
        Miller: Not anymore.

      • {Cruz is wearing a tank top}
        Miller: You working prostitution today?
        Cruz: What?
        Miller: Are you going undercover as a whore?
        Cruz: No.
        Miller: Then cover yourself up. My team will look professional at all times.
        Cruz: Your team?
        Miller: I'm Lieutenant Miller, your new boss.

      • Swersky: Welcome back to all of my mandatory 72-hour vacationers. I trust that you used the time to brush up on your summons skills, because that's what One PP is screaming for now.
        Sully: Nobody shoot at me out there, maybe I'll bring 'em one.
        Swersky: Let's hope the shooting is done for a long, long time.

      • Man: Officer Yokas?
        Yokas: Yeah?
        Man: Are you Officer Yokas?
        Yokas: What do you want?
        Man: Your husband is filing for divorce. You've been served.

      • {to Monroe}
        Davis: You know, you're a hell of a lot better looking than Sully is. I can say that.

      • Sully: What's going on at Midnight Express?
        Yokas: Fred works here.
        Sully: Faith…
        Yokas: Sully!

      • Cruz: What they got going on?
        Miller: Don't worry about it.
        Cruz: Don't worry about it.
        Miller: Doesn't concern you.
        Cruz: I'm their sergeant.
        Miller: We're not gonna get into a whole discussion about how a lieutenant outranks a sergeant, are we?

      • {to Cruz}
        Miller: Now I need a driver. I suggest you volunteer.

      • Monroe: So we have a car theft from an uncooperative victim?
        Davis: Probably.
        Monroe: And a teenager I chased in front of a car.

      • Davis: You know what Sully always says in situations like this? "Crap."
        Monroe: Crap.

      • Yokas: How did my life get so messed up?
        Sully: I'm sure it's all gonna work out for the best.

      • Dispatcher {over radio}: 5-5 Charlie, return to the station house forthwith. Authority of the Platoon Commander.
        Yokas: Fred probably complained.
        Sully: Well, you did go to his work.
        Yokas: You're right Sully, things are starting to look up already.

      • {to Cruz about paying informants}
        Miller: I'm not running an ATM here.

      • {giving advice to Yokas on talking to Swersky}
        Sully: He likes to hear himself speak. When he yells, just let it come, you know? I mean, his temper blows up fast, but it fades away just as quickly. Say "yes, sir" "no, sir" a lot. He likes that, too.

      • {on the phone}
        Cruz: Yeah?
        Phone: Hey Cruz? Watch your back.
        Cruz: Who is this?
        Phone: A friend. IAB has a plant in the 5-5 and they're after you.
        Cruz: Now who is this?
        Phone: Watch your back.

      • {why she can't take the promotion}
        Yokas: It's complicated.
        Sully: How?
        Yokas: Look, Sully, when Bosco gets out of the hospital I'm gonna get back in that car---
        Sully: Faith, we've all seen him. He's not coming back.
        Yokas: You would never leave Davis hanging.

      • Yokas: Fred is not getting the kids.
        Sully: Yeah, my sister swore that she was gonna get full custody of her kids, too. Then the judge cited her hectic schedule and gave the kids to my lousy ex-brother-in-law.
        Yokas: Was your ex-brother-in-law a drunk?
        Sully: No. But from what I hear Fred used to be a drunk. And you're still a cop. So if I was you I would take this promotion and get myself a good lawyer.

      • Val: I didn't know what happened until later.
        Jelly: You must've been flabbergasted.
        Val: For real.

      • Regina: If we would've just rode the subway, my sister would still be here.
        Monroe: So would Mrs. Jenkins.

      • Cruz: So where'd you come from?
        Miller: You mean as a child?
        Cruz: Your last command.

      • Miller: Sergeant Cruz. Sergeant Cruz.
        Cruz: What?
        Miller: Uncuff him.
        Cruz: What?
        Miller: I said uncuff him.
        Cruz: Not funny.

      • Miller: Uncuff the prisoner or I'll bring you up on insubordination charges and have your badge before the end of the night.
        Cruz: You'd like that, wouldn't you?
        Miller: Oh, sweetheart, that's your choice. I could care less.

      • Cruz: What the hell was that about?
        Miller: What did I tell you this afternoon? You do nothing unless I authorize you to do it.
        Cruz: Ignore crime that's happening right in front of me?
        Miller: That's right. Unless I tell you to do something about it.
        Cruz: Hell no.

      • Miller: You wanna know why I'm here? Why this Anti-Crime unit in the 5-5?
        Cruz: Yeah, I wanna know why. Let's hear.
        Miller: Because you're out of control. Your whole team's out of control. You're a renegade. Overcompensating for the fact that you're a woman and a minority hire.
        Cruz: A minority hire.

      • Miller: The days of you running cowboy over these streets are over. We're going back to the basics – pros, decoys, pick pockets, guns – and only if I tell you do something about it. And if you got a problem with that, your exit paperwork is in my desk, filled out, ready for you to sign.
        Cruz: Don't think you're gonna scare me off this job.
        Miller: I don't give you that much thought.

      • Jelly: Look, all you got is the initial stop. Everything else came off of that. If the stop was bad, everything else goes away.
        Davis: Everything?
        Jelly: Everything. Fruits of a poisonous tree.
        Davis: All right. Uh, what if they ran a stop sign?
        Monroe: What? Jelly: Traffic stop works.

      • Monroe: What are you doing?
        Davis: I'm getting the conviction.
        Monroe: Theirs or ours?

      • Davis: Don't tell me about corruption. We're trying to make things right. And if getting the really bad people off the street means I gotta fudge the truth a little bit, every once in a while, I can live with that.
        Monroe: Do you know how many brothers are in jail because of cops with that same mentality?

      • Davis: And how many brothers and sisters get hurt or killed everyday by people who should be in jail but they're not because they got around the system? Tell me that.
        Monroe: I'm not gonna have your back on this.
        Davis: You don't have to.

      • {about Yokas}
        Monroe: She made detective.
        Cruz: Yeah? Monroe: Yeah. Meritoriously. For what happened on the roof the other night.
        Cruz: No kidding. At least someone had a good day.

      • Captain Finney: What do you got?
        Monroe: Nothing.
        Captain Finney: When why the hell'd you call me?
        Monroe: I think I may need to change precincts. Someone warned Cruz that there may be a plant in the 5-5.
        Captain Finney: They say it was you?
        Monroe: No, not really. She thinks it may be her new boss.

      • Captain Finney: Cruz sort of trusts you. We're not gonna get this sort of opportunity again.
        Monroe: Yeah, but they suspect.
        Captain Finney: Detective Monroe, I need to know what happened up on that roof. Sergeant Cruz murdered Donald Mann. Now there's risks that come with the job. You knew that when you signed up for IAB.

      • Monroe: What if it happened exactly the way they say it did? Yokas saved Cruz's life.
        Captain Finney: I saw the body. Mann had handcuff marks on his wrists. Do you know how hard it is to pull a knife with handcuffs on? This is not about a free cup of coffee. This is about a murder.
        Monroe: I get it.
        Captain Finney: I want her. Don't call me until you have her.
