      • Jimmy (voiceover): The most difficult thing to do in sports is hit a major league fastball. The Yankees gave me three swings. Every spring they have open try outs for the guys who think they can make it but didn't have the advantage of going to a Michigan or a USC. Spring of 1993, that was my year. They give you three swings, you hit one you move on to fielding. Kinda harsh, but it didn't matter to me, anyways. I knew I was good. I had it all figured out, maybe a year in the minors then I'd make it to the big show. Easy street. Seven figure endorsment contract with Nike or Adidas, or somebody. All I had to do was hit one. How hard could that be? Being a fireman, that was my backup plan. Joined the fire department three months later. Didn't expect to, but I love my job. I love being a fireman. Didn't expect to, but I love my job. I love being a fireman. I'm really good at it. Better at it than everything else I've ever tried to do. Being a fireman, people in the neighborhood look up to you. Being a good fireman, the other firefighters look up to you. And I'm a good fireman. In the firehouse, I'm respected. I know my spot, I know I belong. Work with men I admire, and I trust with my life, and who trust me with theirs. That was the best. I'd found my place in the world after all. And then I got shot. The Yankees gave me three swings, and while I don't really have any regrets, sometimes I wish they'd just given me one more swing.

      • Jimmy (voiceover): Most difficult thing to do in sports is to hit a major league fast ball. Been thinkin' a lot about Wally Pipp. Wally Pipp never got into another game, Lou Gehrig didn't miss a start for 13 years. On this job, I guess I always thought on myself as Gehrig in that story.

      • Doc: Can't sleep?
        Taylor: I'm not tired.
        Doc: Well, you should try and get some rest anyway.
        Taylor: No, thanks. (walks off)
        Carlos: Ooh, I thought you guys were friends.
        Kim: Nice girl.

      • Lt. Johnson (introducing Taylor to everyone): DK, Walsh, Lombardo, Roberts, Howell, and the ugly one is Doherty.

      • Doc: Hey, is that Alex Taylor?
        Howell: The one and only.
        Carlos: You know her?
        Doc: Yeah, she used to be a paramedic, we worked a few shifts together before she took the fire exam, and made it up the list.
        Carlos: Is she the one from 78?
        Doc: Yeah, nice lady, hard worker.
        Howell: Yeah, well, she shoulda stayed a paramedic.
        Carlos: Too bad she's litigious. Girl's got a great ass.

      • Roberts: Kim Zambrano. Bobby Caffey, this is Alex Taylor. Today is her first day.
        Bobby: Welcome to high school.
        Kim: Yeah, junior high school. It'll be nice havin' another woman around here.
        Alex: Yeah. Are the lockers upstairs?
        Kim: Yeah, you want me to show you?
        Alex: No. I'll find them. (walks off)
        Kim: Okay, friendly.

      • Roberts: Hey, uh, where's Jimmy?
        Kim: Jimmy's here?
        Lombardo: Yeah, he came back today.
        Kim: He wasn't supposed to be back for another couple of weeks.
        Lombardo: Uh, you know Jimmy. (Kim walks off to find Jimmy)
        Bobby: Let the games begin.

      • Doc: So... how they treatin' 'ya? ... They'll come around.
        Taylor: I'm here. I'm not goin' anywhere. They're just gonna have to get used to it. Right across the street from the donut dopes. Must be a royal pain.
        Doc: Mostly we get along.
        Taylor: Same old Doc. 50 feet from enemy camp and you're still Mary Sunshine.
        Doc: I manage a thunderstorm every now and then. What you doin' sittin' out here all alone?
        Taylor: Didn't wanna be in the way in there.
        Doc: Lieutenant said you're thinkin' about takin' some paramedic shifts?
        Taylor: Yeah, maybe. Little extra cash.
        Doc: Well, you can ride with me anytime.
        Taylor: You still drive like Richard Petty?
        Doc: More like Willie T. Ribbs. The Indy driver. You'll have to take my word for it. ... How's your dad?
        Taylor: Ah, he still thinks that I'll make Chief.

      • (Bobby is outside using a clipboard to tan)
        Jimmy: What the hell you doin'?
        Bobby: Saving lives and taking sun, baby.

      • Danny: How long you been off the disabled list?
        Jimmy: What time is it?

      • (a car has crashed into a produce stand)
        Jimmy: What's happenin', Bobby?
        Bobby: Once again, a drunk defies the laws of physics, escapes unscathed.

      • Jimmy: I'm a better firefighter then you Joe. Any day of the week.
        Lombardo: Yeah, you were, and maybe you will be again. But you know what? We're only as strong as our weakest link, and today you're it.

      • Kim: So now you just quit? Go home?
        Jimmy: Can't do it.
        Kim: So take a few more weeks on disability, nobody expected you back this soon. Spend a some time as a can man.
        Jimmy: I can't be a can man.
        Kim: Why not?
        Jimmy: I just can't.
        Kim: Is it your pride? You can ask for help, Jimmy.
        Jimmy: I don't ask for help. I'm the one everyone else asks for help. I don't have that, I'm nothing.
        Kim: That's not true, Jimmy.

      • Doc: Where's the shooting?
        Faith: There isn't one. They just called us out 'cause they want us to rouse some drug dealers.
        Sully: Like we're their own personal security service.
        Jimmy: I can't say that I blame them.
        Sully: That's 'cause you just as soon sit around the firehouse watchin' Ricki Lake.
        Alex: Better than sitting around thinkin' up tired jokes about firemen.
        Davis: Who are you?
        Alex: From the outfit, I'd say I was a firefighter.
        Sully: You're supposed to have a Barco Lounger attached to your ass. Where is it? (everyone laughs)
        Alex: Who's side are you guys on?
        Carlos: That'd be the one with funnier jokes. (they all say good byes and walk off)
        Faith: You new?
        Alex: Alex Taylor.
        Faith: Faith Yokas. It's amazing, isn't it? It's like they get dumber when they're in packs.

      • Howell: You are one sorry looking specimen.
        Jimmy: I got shot. What's your excuse?
        Lombardo: If we give you a glass of water, you gonna sprout a coupla fountains?
        Jimmy: Ten weeks and that's the best that you could come up with?
        Walsh (taking Jimmy's bag): Lemme get that.
        Jimmy: Hey, I got it, Candyman.
        Howell: Somebody better tell the arsonist that Jimmy D's back.

      • Alex: He's going to need a saline drip, O2, and at least 5 mg's or morphine.
        Kim: Great, another ER fan.
        Alex: I was a paramedic before I moved up.
        Kim: Moved up?

      • Davis: Who are you?
        Alex: From the outfit, I'd say I was a firefighter.
        Sully: You're supposed to have a BarcoLounger attached to your ass. Where is it?
