    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Charles Haid Directed this episode and appears as a fire chief. In season six, however, he plays C.T. Finney.

      • When Sasha and Bosco drop off Emily at school, she gets out of the back seat of the R.M.P. by herself, which isn't possible.

      • Candid gives the location of the warehouse as 96th and Pine during the confrontation in the station house. After Bosco and Sasha show up at the warehouse, she calls in the location as 86th and Pine. When the call comes into the fire station, the location given is 96th and Pine.

      • In a previous episode, Faith and Fred called her brother "Stanley"; in this episode, Mona refers to him as "Ronnie".

      • Bosco had sunglasses on when he ran into Sully's and Ty's R.M.P., but wasn't wearing them when the chase began.

    • QUOTES (41)

      • {to Jimmy at the training session}
        Chief: Congratulations, you just killed all your men.

      • Carlos: Don't worry about the drill, Jimmy. Kim's been pretending to be a boss all week.

      • Jimmy: I've never known a drill to go like that.
        Walsh: I've never known a boss to kill his entire crew at a job.
        Jimmy: I didn't ask for the job, Billy.
        Walsh: You didn't turn it down either.

      • Monroe: You know, why don't you let some of what Davis has rub off on you?
        Bosco: You know what? Davis can keep his sunshine all to himself. Don't be late.

      • {to Davis}
        Monroe: Ah, happy brother got flowers.

      • Davis: It's not set in stone.
        Sully: No, it's set in uh...pillowtalk.

      • Pierre: Ooh, 'bout time you cops got on the J.O.
        Bosco: You guys go to the same spelling school?

      • Pierre: All that blue made you forget you was black, huh?
        Monroe: No baby, I'm black everyday.
        Bosco: Yo, Wu-Tang, get the hell out of here and don't come back.
        Pierre: "Wu-Tang." Munchkin got jokes.

      • Kim: EMS has more logs than Lincoln.
        Jimmy: Johnson used to always say that.

      • Jimmy: Billy, leave the truck right there.
        Walsh: Yeah, good idea boss. Why don't you go tell the cops how to direct traffic now.

      • Yokas: Ow! Ow! Ow!
        Therapist: Does it hurt?
        Yokas: Yeah, that would explain the scream.

      • Therapist: "Success" is a relative term. What do you expect out of this Faith?
        Yokas: I expect to get better.
        Therapist: "Better" is a relative term.
        Fred: How about a break?
        Therapist: We just started.
        Fred: She said it hurts.
        Therapist: Well, there are other things we can do.
        Fred: Not today.
        Therapist: But I think that we can make some progress.
        Yokas: Yeah, well "progress" is a relative term.

      • Sully: I bet I could read you a question from this book and you'll be able to answer it correctly. You ready?
        Davis: I don't think I've ever seen you read anything that didn't have cartoons in it.

      • {to Bosco}
        Pierre: I know white men can't jump, right? But can they run?

      • {about Bosco}
        Sully: Man, he likes to chase people.

      • Sully: That's what I'm talking about, Davis. You go to law school you never got to chase another idiot down the street. Or look like and idiot chasing somebody.

      • {to Pierre}
        Bosco: You are one mental midget.

      • {to Pierre}
        Sully: Hope he didn't hurt anything important. Nah, just your head.

      • Pierre: I don't want to go to jail, son.
        Sully: You should have thought of that, dad, before you pissed off that little man right there.

      • DK: Come on Jimmy, you and Billy are friends.
        Jimmy: Not today.

      • Monroe: You know him?
        Kandid: This is my dawg for life.
        Pierre: For life!
        Monroe: Get a leash, and get your dog and get out.

      • Jimmy: Why does it come so easy for you?
        Kim: You think it comes easy? Carlos questions everything I say.
        Jimmy: Yeah, but you don't let it get to you.
        Kim: Because he can't.
        Jimmy: What do you mean?
        Kim: Doesn't matter what he says. End of the day I'm the supervisor. He doesn't have to be happy about it and I don't have to argue with him about it.

      • Bosco: Why do you do that?
        Monroe: Do what?
        Bosco: You messing with me like that?
        Monroe: Because you make it so damn easy.

      • Mona: You have always been the strong one in this family. For your father, for me, your brother, little Emily. All of us, we count on you. And that's what's killing me--- that I don't know how to...make you help yourself.

      • {to Kandid}
        Monroe: Put your hands behind your back and don't act like you haven't done this before.

      • Yokas: That therapist come back tomorrow?
        Fred: I told her I'd call her in the morning.
        Yokas: You tell her that we're on.
        Fred: You sure you want to push it?
        Yokas: Yeah. I'll pick up her ball a thousand times if that's what it takes to get out of this chair.

      • Walsh: Being a good firefighter doesn't make you a good boss.
        Jimmy: I am your friend. I thought you'd help me figure this job out, not cut me off at the knees.
        Walsh: You're not supposed to have to "figure it out."

      • {to Davis}
        Sully: The look on Bosco's face. He thought you were some kind of superhero or something. Lawyer-Cop Man!

      • Davis: Guy gives rap a bad name.
        Bosco: No, rap gives rap a bad name.
        Monroe: Watch your mouth.
        Davis: I guess if anybody'd know that it would be Maurice Boscorelli.

      • Monroe: One minute you're an ass, the next you're who the hell knows what.
        Bosco: Uh, uh. Judging--- no judging.

      • {looking at a picture of Lt. Johnson}
        Jimmy: I'll do you proud.

      • Monroe: It's a crime and we're crime fighters kinda like your superheroes.
        Bosco: Hey, hey, hey, they're not my superheroes.
        Monroe: Sounds like it.
        Bosco: No, no, no, no my brother's the one that collected comics.
        Monroe: Yet you seem to have all the knowledge.

      • {to Kandid}
        Bosco: Don't trip on your bling-bling yo-yo.

      • Candid Jones: I'm all about free speech. That ain't dead is it?
        Davis: No,no the only thing dead is good hip hop.

      • Davis: I don't think I've ever seen you read anything that didn't have cartoons in it.
        Sully: Ha.

      • Jenny the PT: Does it hurt?
        Faith: That would explain the scream.

      • Jimmy: The Chief threw us a curve ball. I've never known a drill to go like that.
        Billy: I've never known a boss to kill his entire crew at a job.

      • Bosco: Don't be late.
        Monroe: I'm on my J.O.
        Bosco: Your who?
        Monroe: Add a 'b' to the end.
        Bosco: Or you could just say JOB.

      • Bosco: How's school?
        Emily: I'm adjusting.
        Bosco: Be yourself, you'll be alright.
        Emily: Nothing's normal anymore, thanks Bosco.
        Bosco: You're welcome.
        Monroe: Nice. Nice disposition.
        Bosco: Maybe you shouldn't be judging people so quick.
        Monroe: I can't believe you of all people let that come out of your mouth!

      • Monroe: Oh I don't know, I'm picking up a vibe, kinda like Superman. I'm sensing something.
        Sully: I thought that was Spiderman?
        Bosco: Spiderman only senses danger, but he can't tell if it's a supervillain or a bill collector.

      • Jimmy: You never panic, you hear me, never panic.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Monroe: I'm picking up a vibe, kinda like Superman. I'm sensing something.

        Monroe incorrectly compares herself to Superman when she means Spiderman. Superman cannot sense danger like Spiderman but has heightened senses such as hearing and so will fly off to help those in need when they cry out for help.

      • Bosco: Spiderman only senses danger, but he can't tell if it's a supervillain or a bill collector.

        Bosco is referring to the Marvel comic superhero Spiderman. Spiderman, like Third Watch is set in New York and has recently been made into two blockbuster films starring Tobey Maguire in the title role. The power Bosco mentions is called his 'spidey-sense' and alerts him just in time to any potential danger.
