AIRED:
Faith begs Fred to return home, but he refuses for a reason that infuriates his wife; Bosco turns a cold shoulder to Maritza's attempts to offer her condolences; Carlos is spectacularly unsuccessful in his attempts to hit on Grace; on the day of his son's funeral, Donald Mann exacts his revenge with the help of a dirty cop by planting bombs designed to kill the police officers he holds responsible for the death of his son; after Mann's lieutenants force a man to crash a car carrying a live bomb into the funeral home where Mikey's wake is being held, Grace takes charge and goes out of protocol to save Rose's life, and Dr. Fields later swears to have her job for it; Kim's decision not to enter the funeral home while the bomb is still live stems not from cowardice, but from maternal instincts; when Mann discovers that some of his intended targets survived the bombings, he sends machine-gun wielding minions into the hospital to finish off the job.moreless

  • wow, they DEFINITELY know how to make a cliffhanger!!!!!!

    9.7
    when i saw this episode i completely freaked out!!!! donald mann really tried to kill the whole team, although his son's death was an accident!!!!!! and i am really sorry for bosco - first his brother's death and know his mother seems to be killed, too...

    and isn't it just crazy to run into a hospital, armed with this special weapons, and shoot around?! i am really keen on seeing how this will end... i mean, it would be magic if they will all come out of this healthy...

    i think of all the episodes of third watch, that was the most striking, most frightening episode i have ever seen!!!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This is the last episode Fred appears in as a main character. For season six he is back to a guest star

    • Grace made two major errors when she performed the tracheotomy. She cut horizontally, instead of vertically, which could have severed arteries, nerves, and caused vocal damage, and she didn't cut the windpipe to insert the breathing tube.

    • Maritza calls in her location as 108th and West End, but West End Avenue doesn't extend beyond 107th Street.

  • QUOTES (48)

    • Yokas: Fred, you just can't up and leave.
      Fred: Fine, this is all out of the blue. Does that make you feel better? Is that what you want me to say?
      Yokas: I want you and the kids to come home.
      Fred: No.

    • Yokas: I'm not doing this because I'm trying to prove to the city that they were wrong about me, or because I'm worried about Cruz knocking me out of the box. I'm doing this because I can help people. Defenseless people like that little girl. True victims. And I can make it better for them. I mean, what would you expect me to do, turn my back on them?
      Fred: Like you did us?

    • Yokas: We're a team. I love you so much. We've been together forever…
      Fred: I met someone.

    • {Cruz shows up at Rose's}
      Bosco: What?
      Cruz: This is, uh, Sacojo. It's uh…my mother used to make it, it's uh…stew. It's kind of a tradition, a condolence. I'm not really a good cook, but it tastes about right, so…
      Bosco: How'd you get my mother's address?
      Cruz: I'm a cop, right? I…investigated.
      Bosco: You investigated my mother?
      Cruz: No, I…uh…That was a joke. Actually Monroe, she told me. So I just wanted to drop this off for your mother. I'm really sorry about your---
      Bosco: Goodbye.

    • Mann: Besides Boscorelli, Yokas and Cruz of the 55th, Sergeant Wynn and Dombroski of Narcotics--- I want them all dead before they put my Joey in the ground tomorrow.

    • Jelly: Something wrong?
      Swersky: Is that a new suit?
      Jelly: Yeah.
      Swersky: You're wearing a new suit?
      Jelly: So?
      Swersky: Looks expensive.
      Jelly: You don't think I can afford a suit?
      Swersky: No, I didn't think you had the taste.

    • Jelly: Usually I get my johnson yanked 'cause I look bad. Now I'm getting it 'cause I look good?
      Swersky: I never said you looked good.
      Jelly: Ha ha ha. Take your show on the road. The Joking Lieutenant.

    • {Yoshi decides to skip the raid and go to the wake}
      Cruz: You're gonna leave your partner hanging?
      Yoshi: My partner?
      Cruz: Glenn's back.
      Yoshi: He is?
      Cruz: Yeah, he's getting his gear.
      Yoshi: He wasn't supposed to be back until next week.
      Cruz: Yeah, well, uh, I guess he's dedicated to the mission, unlike some people I know.

    • Yoshi: Maybe you should just call this one off, huh? Go to the wake, too.
      Cruz: First of all, most of the third watch is gonna be there. Somebody's gotta stay back and watch the shop. Second, I don't call off a raid like this for anyone. Or anything. Third, I wasn't invited.

    • Carlos: I was thinking that it would probably help you to switch it up some.
      Grace: Is that so?
      Carlos: Vary the experience.
      Levine: Watching Carlos scream at other drivers all night can really help your résumé.
      Carlos: They're idiots.

    • Grace: You were that close.
      Levine: Yeah. I don't think you were really all that close.
      Carlos: Chipping away. Uh-huh.

    • Mann: He had a nightmare when he was five. A monster was chasing him. I said there was no such thing. He fell asleep in my arms. I held him there, looking down at his face. I fell in love with him that night.
      Butler: Well, that's a happy memory.
      Mann: But the night I fell in love with my son, I lied to him.
      Butler: Sir?
      Mann: There are monsters.

    • {at Mikey's wake}
      Rose: Your precinct sent a very beautiful arrangement.
      Bosco: Yeah, they're nice.
      Rose: Michael would've loved them.
      Bosco: Flowers from the police. He would've got a kick out of that.

    • {at Mikey's wake}
      Sully: You guys ready for this?
      Monroe: Are you ever really ready?
      Sully: I guess not.
      Davis: I hate these places, man.
      Sully: No kidding.

    • Grace: God, when does anything ever happen around here?
      Kim: Oh, haven't you been doing this long enough to know you don't say things like that?

    • Grace: I am gonna jump out of my skin.
      Kim: Oh, I'm sorry, Grace. You want me to run someone over so you can go out and patch them up?

    • Grace: Well, you'd have to hit them pretty good for it to be interesting…It was a joke.
      Kim: Oh, sometimes it's hard to tell with you.

    • Grace: Well, everyone at the 6-8 knew.
      Kim: You're not there anymore.
      Grace: Yeah, don't remind me.

    • Kim: That's getting really old, Grace.
      Grace: I'll try to be more fresh and exciting.
      Kim: Why don't you just try and be quiet.

    • Kim: You have any kids?
      Grace: Thought I was supposed to quiet.
      Kim: Do you?
      Grace: No. Why?
      Kim: Just curious.
      Grace: You ever pull that stick out of your ass?
      Kim: Excuse me?
      Grace: Just curious.

    • Kim: I should've worked with Carlos today.

    • Carlos: Why do you do that?
      Levine: I didn't get a chance to eat today.
      Carlos: No, make me look bad.
      Levine: When did I make you look bad?

    • Carlos: "Watching Carlos yell at other drivers is good for your résumé"?
      Levine: Oh, come on.
      Carlos: Ha ha. What? What? Are you jealous or something? Huh?
      Levine: You have to be kidding me.

    • Carlos: You only do it when I'm about to lay my rap.
      Levine: Lay your rap?
      Carlos: Yeah. I'm about to get it and there you are with some stupid comment.

    • Levine: You know what? You're right. That's what keeps Grace from jumping all over you.
      Carlos: So stop it, all right?
      Levine: No way is it that stupid haircut or the disgusting way you lick your lips when you're talking to her, or the way you never look higher than her chest or lower than her ass, or just your general creepiness you get whenever you're around any woman. That slimy look you get in your eyes like we're all just hunks of meat in a deli display case and you haven't eaten in years. That is all very attractive. In fact, I'm sure that you're the man Grace Foster's been looking for all her life.
      Carlos: I don't have a stupid haircut.

    • {at Mikey's wake}
      Anthony: You need anything?
      Rose: I need him back.

    • Sully: What the hell happened?
      Davis: It was a car.
      Sully: A car?
      Monroe: Yeah, a car came through the building.
      Sully: I got hit by a car inside?

    • Driver: They're gonna kill her.
      Bosco: What are you talk---
      Driver: I got a bomb!

    • {outside the demolished funeral home}
      Kim: Grace, wait.
      Grace: What.
      Kim: I can't.
      Grace: Can't?
      Kim: I can't go in there.

    • {working on Rose}
      Bosco: There's a bomb inside this car.
      Grace: So?
      Bosco: So maybe you shouldn't be in here.
      Grace: She's hurt, isn't she?

    • {about Rose}
      Grace: How long's she been like this?
      Bosco: What do you mean?
      Grace: In this position?
      Bosco: Five minutes I guess. Why?
      Grace: Because she isn't breathing.

    • {about Rose}
      Grace: There must be an injury.
      Bosco: How bad an injury?
      Grace: Well, right now it's killing her.
      Bosco: Can you do something? Please?

    • {working on Rose}
      Grace: This should be the thyroid cartilage.
      Bosco: "Should be"?

    • {performing a procedure on Rose}
      Bosco: Hey, are you supposed to be doing this?
      Grace: Not really.

    • {bleeding from the head – to Ginny}
      Sully: Am I still pretty?

    • {at the hospital}
      Cruz: What are you doing here?
      Bosco: I don't know. Someone drove a bomb into my brother's wake. What are you doing here?
      Cruz: Someone blew up a building we were raiding.
      Bosco: What?
      Yokas: That's quite a coincidence, huh?

    • Carlos: What's the matter with you?
      Grace: Ask your supervisor.

    • Kim: I was not afraid.
      Grace: Looked like it to me.
      Kim: If it was just me I would've been right next to you.
      Grace: What does that mean?
      Kim: I wasn't afraid!
      Grace: Whatever.

    • Kim: I said I couldn't go in, not that I didn't want to go in.
      Carlos: You couldn't go in where?
      Grace: We had injured in a funeral home. There was a car with a bomb in it and she left me alone to go inside.
      Kim: Yeah, well, you didn't have to.
      Grace: It's my job.

    • Levine: I've never known Kim to be afraid of anything.
      Kim: I wasn't afraid.
      Carlos: Well, if you were, it's okay…
      Kim: I'm pregnant!
      Levine: Congratulations.

    • {about Kim}
      Grace: She could've said something.
      Levine: Yeah, you really don't give anyone a chance to say anything, do you?

    • {about performing the procedure on Rose}
      Grace: She was dying!
      Dr. Fields: So, perform a surgical procedure?
      Grace: Look, she wasn't breathing, there was a bomb. I had to make a snap decision.
      Dr. Fields: Here's my decision: I'm gonna make sure you never work on the street again. You got that? Never.

    • {to Grace}
      Carlos: You know, for what it's worth, I agree with you.

    • Butler: Sir, uh, there's a--- a problem. The bomb at the piers, we got both of the Narcotics cops, Wynn and Dombrowski. Apparently there aren't even bodies left.
      Mann: That doesn't sound like much of a problem.
      Butler: No, sir.
      Mann: What is the problem?
      Butler: The other cops: Cruz, at the raid. I understand she survived. And the funeral home, our, uh, agent. Either the bomb didn't go off or the driver never hit the button.

    • Cruz: He tried to kill us all at the same time.

    • Davis: I was just talking to Jelly. Laura Wynn was killed. Explosion down on the docks.
      Bosco: This is war.

    • Cruz: Son of a bitch. Hurt my whole team trying to get to me…except Yoshi.
      Davis: Yoshi's all right?
      Cruz: Yoshi didn't get hurt at the wake?
      Davis: I don't remember seeing Yoshi at the wake.
      Yokas: Yeah, me neither.
      Cruz: Yoshi wasn't---

    • Bosco: Oh, who cares about Yoshi!? What are we gonna do about this son of a bitch Mann? That's what I wanna know.
      Cruz: We're gonna be smart. We're gonna find out all the information that Laura had on him. We're gonna start locking people up one by one until someone gives him to us. You don't go to war with the New York City Police Department.
      Yokas: Hey guys…
