Conway: I met your girlfriend today at the lieutenant candidates meeting.
Severide: Is that so.
Conway: Took me ‘til I was 42 to make lieutenant. She’s really zooming up the ladder.
Severide: She’s a great firefighter.
Conway: If you say so. These days they promote people for all kinds of reasons that have nothing to do with skill and experience.
Severide: She has both.
Conway: Sure. I’ll tell you what. A victim that’s got to be shoulder carried down a ground ladder doesn’t care that there are enough ladies in the CFD or diversity. They just need saving. Am I right?
Severide: You might want to think about retirement, chief. You’re starting to sound a little creaky.
Conway: I get it. You go to defend your girl, but it’s funny because folks around here are saying the real reason Kidd’s moving up so fast is you.
Severide: What are you talking about?
Conway: It can’t hurt sleeping with an officer, especially one so closely connected to Commissioner Grissom. I’m just telling you what everyone else is saying. Don’t shoot the messenger.
