  • Bobby's death, a great Third Watch moment and amazing episode

    10
    This episode was one of the greats. Bobby was an amazing character in the show and how they really went all out for his goodbye was spectacular. We really saw everyones feeling and reactions about what happend. At first i expected it to be a really Kim focused thing since she saw him get shot and stuff, but they did an amazing job showing everyone handling the situation in thir own way. The acting didnt look cheap or fake which it sometime can be during a sentimental episoide. Plus the talk he had with his father was a really stong point considering we never really heard his true feelings toward him. The boxing hit then flatline was also greatly done as well as the dynamic between Kim and Bobby's mother. Also, how they ended up catcing Paulie in the end was important because ususally they really don't focus on what happends to the killer, but to me that was extremly important to find out.



    There really isn't much bad I can say about this hour. the writers wrote it extrmly well so that it was sad, but not overboard unrealistic. Every end was tied up as a great character departing episoide.moreless

    I always liked the Bobby character for some reason. I usually don't dig the do gooding type, But I always liked Bobby. Maybe it's because he played the role so well and made it so convincable that he was a nice guy who always tried to help someone. This episode is truly a amazing episode of Third Watch. The whole dream with Bobby was great. It showed just how much Bobby cared about the people in his life. How he raised his family and stuck by them when his dad ditched them. And how he even stood by Paulie only to get shot down. This was such a sad episode, When they announce Bobby has died to the medics and to his mom, The reaction on everyone's parts is just so sad. The ending is one of my favorite endings to a episode. With the kid Bobby walking with his dad, And with the firefighters and even the cops being sad over Bobby dying. Kim was also really good here, And how she didn't really break down until she saw her mom. It sucks that Bobby got killed off, But the final two episodes with him were great.moreless

  • QUOTES (19)

    • (flashback/dream)
      Bobby: So now what, we shake hands, say you're sorry, huh?
      Bobby's Dad: I'm not sorry.
      Bobby: You're not?
      Bobby's Dad: No.
      Bobby: You abandoned us.
      Bobby's Dad: I had to be happy. I had to live. We got married so young, then all the babies came and... I just wanted a life of my own.
      Bobby: Now who do you think had to be the father of this family?

    • Jimmy: Maybe you should go ask the boss if he could spare you, go down to the hospital.
      Taylor: Like I wouldn't go crazy just standing there.
      Jimmy: You're starin' at the phone, Alex. Come on. Go downstairs keep yourself busy with the equipment or somethin'.
      Taylor: I'm fine. (to herself) Come on, Bobby.

    • (flashback/dream)
      Bobby's Dad: You look good.
      Bobby: Go to hell.

      Bobby: Don't talk about her.
      Bobby's Dad: She was a beautiful woman.
      Bobby: She is a beautiful woman.
      Bobby's Dad: A very special woman.
      Bobby: My mother's none of your damn business.

    • Det. Kyser: Any idea where to look?
      Sully: Oh, from what I could gather from the medic's partner, the shooter's a junkie, heroin. Pretty bad. Now, the medic threw his stash in the toliet, so this guy's gotta be lookin' to cop somewhere.
      Det. Kyser: So all we have to do is find out if anyone deals drugs in New York and sit on them.
      Davis: Bosco's runnin' a few spots right now.
      Sully: Junkie's don't keep secrets for very long.

    • Gina: What happened?
      Davis: Your brother may have hurt somebody.
      Gina: My brother doesn't hurt anybody but himself.
      Sully: Yeah? Well, he graduated tonight.

    • Faith (entering a crack house): Oh, they redecorated since the last time.
      Bosco: How do you end up shooting dope in a place like this and not know you screwed up?
      Faith: I'm pretty sure they know. So how many of these places are we plannin' on hitting?
      Bosco: All of 'em.

    • Bosco: New pad, Bernard?
      Dollar Bill/Bernard: I'm not doin' anything here but sleepin'.

      Bosco: Where is he?
      Dollar Bill/Bernard: He's headed over to the Greeks.
      Bosco: On 108th?
      Faith: Is lookin' to cop?
      Dollar Bill/Bernard: Well, why else would you goes see those dirty bastards, huh?
      Bosco: Well, you might as well go back to sleep. Narcotics won't be able to get here until the morning to toss the joint anyway. They'll love hearing about your new address.
      Dollar Bill/Bernard: I'm not holdin' here, this is my new home.
      Bosco: Well, we'll find out in the morning, won't we? Spread the word! No peace for anyone who helps Paulie Fuentes!

    • Faith: He's still in surgery, that's all they know at the desk. It's gonna be mornin' soon.
      Bosco: Yeah, it's long operation.
      Faith: Well, we hit every place that I can think of.

      Doc: It'll be a while. He's... He's, uh, he's strong, young.
      Carlos: He's got a hole in his heart.
      Doc: You okay?
      Carlos: Yeah, don't worry about it.
      Doc: I am.
      Carlos: Remember when Jerry got shot? I didn't really know him. I only spent that one day with him. Everyone was so freaked. I felt kind of left out, almost envious, you know?
      Doc: Envious?
      Carlos: Yeah, it was like you guys were all a family.
      Doc: We are.
      Carlos: I've been here more than a year and I'm no closer to being part of that family.

    • (flashback/dream)
      Bobby: Why did you leave?
      Bobby's Dad: What?
      Bobby (referring to when he lost a fight): You wouldn't talk to me after that. And the next morning, you were gone.
      Bobby's Dad: If I didn't talk it was because I had other things on my mind. It-it wasn't you.
      Bobby: Mami, Mateo, the girls. It was my fault you were gone.
      Bobby's Dad: They thought that?
      Bobby: I thought that! Nobody knew... except Paulie.

    • Paulie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
      Bosco: It's a little late for that.

    • (flashback/dream)
      Bobby (about a fight he lost): I'm sorry, I'm sorry that I lost. I'm sorry.
      Bobby's Dad: I carried a picture of you everywhere I went. I'm proud of you. Hey, you're the only thing I ever did that was any good... that was worth anything.
      Bobby: I missed you so much.
      Bobby's Dad: It wasn't you, you hear me? It wasn't you.

    • (flashback/dream – when Bobby dies)
      Bobby: I never got to do all the things that I wanted to, you know?
      Bobby's Dad: You did a lot. You helped people, you saved lives.
      Bobby: I don't have kids. Never had a wife.
      Bobby's Dad: You raised a family, my family. You took care of your mother.
      Bobby: Will they be alright?
      Bobby's Dad: With you as their father, why wouldn't they?
      Bobby: Will you be with me?
      Bobby's Dad: Is that what you want?
      Bobby: I want that very much.

    • Doc: Hey.
      Carlos (cleaning Bobby's blood from the ambulance): It's dry. I shoud've done this right away. It's a bitch to clean when it's dry.
      Doc: Carlos, look...
      Carlos (still cleaning the blood): No, no. ... Damn it. We got him here, that's the most important thing, right?
      Doc: Maybe we should get you some coffee.
      Carlos: No, if I have anymore coffee I'm going to explode. I told you though, didn't I? Not many people make it when they get their chests cracked.
      Doc: Come on, we'll clean this up later.
      Carlos: No, it'll be worse then.
      Doc: We'll get it.
      Carlos: It's a pretty amazing, my ablitity that I've developed, knowing when somebody's going to... It's not going to come up.

    • Ty: You ever talk to him much?
      Sully: Caffey? No. You?
      Ty: I puked in his car once.
      Sully: Now, there's a memory.

    • Carlos: I don't need a lecture.
      Doc: Lecture?
      Carlos: I know it selfish for me to be thinking of myself right now, I know that.
      Doc: Come on. He's out of surgery, and the doctor wants to talk to his mother, and she wants us there.
