Chicago Fire Quotes
Severide: We should get away. Just us.
Kidd: You got somewhere in mind that doesn’t involve airports or crowds?
Severide: How about the cabin?
Kidd: So icy roads, snow-covered driveway, subzero temperatures, and the two of us? Sounds hot.
Severide: That’s exactly what I was thinking.
Mouch: I know what all that whispering was about.
Cruz: You do?
Mouch: Yeah, and if you saw it, say it to my face.
Cruz: What are you talking about, Mouch?
Mackey: I just wanted to make sure you weren’t moping around, feeling sorry for yourself.
Gallo: That’s very thoughtful of you.
Mackey: Yeah, I’m like that. Seriously, though, I feel so badly about pushing you into telling that story.
Gallo: Don’t. Everything that happened with Casey is on me. You want a beer?
Mackey: No, no, I don’t want to take any more of your hanging out, looking hot in sweats time.
Gallo: I get the feeling you do.
Mackey: I don’t know. I mean I know how nervous you get when I’m within reach.
Casey: I’m sorry. I’d really like to, but…
Sydney: Something to do with the paramedic maybe? Sylvie? It’s kind of impossible not to notice the way you look at her.
Casey: You’re great, Sydney, and a lot of fun.
Sydney: You are too.
Casey: God, I really wish I was in the right place for this now.
Sydney: Maybe another time then. Don’t lose my number, Capt. Casey.
Casey: I thought I should explain. I’ve been a little out of sorts lately, mind elsewhere.
Gallo: Yeah, well, sure. No worries.
Casey: This isn’t an apology.
Gallo: Right, of course.
Casey: The fact is Gallo I’m your captain. I’m answerable for your safety. Losing a firefighter is the worst thing that can happen to an officer, and I would know. If anything had happened to you under that canopy, I wouldn’t have even known you were there. I couldn’t have done a thing to help you. You robbed me of my accountability, and that can’t happen again.
Gallo: It won’t. I swear.
Severide: I’ve been MIA because I thought that was best for you. Chief Conway told me the white shirts said the only reason you’re moving up the ladder is because you’re with me. I didn’t tell you because I figured it would mess with your head. You deserve better.
Kidd: You thought that I couldn’t handle that?
Severide: What I thought is you’ve earned every part of this yourself. Everybody should know that.
Kidd: It sounds like maybe you care what they’re saying because I sure as hell don’t. Kelly, I didn’t become a firefighter as a white guy with my father at the top of the chain. I came up alone, fighting every step of the way with people looking down on me and doing whatever they could to shake my confidence. I have a built-in armor that you will never understand, and no one like Conway is going to knock me down.
Severide: Then why aren’t you taking the test? You don’t need my help. You have to know that.
Kidd: Of course I know I don’t need your help with some test. I needed you to do what you do best: To tell me, ‘You got this, Stella Kidd.’ And to pick me up when I’m feeling low, and instead, you shut down on me. You shut down on me like the bad old days.
Severide: This attitude of yours is exactly why I know you got this, Stella Kidd, and it’s why I know how badly I screwed up, and it’s why I’m never gonna let you go away from me again.
Kidd: You are not the decider. And pretty soon, we’re gonna be in the same rank, so listen up. I am the one who’s never going to let you get away again.
Kidd: I was just thinking would it be possible to put off taking the lieutenant’s test until next year.
Boden: Well, as you know, tests are only scheduled for when there are openings available, so waiting is a gamble.
Kidd: I’m so grateful to you, for your support, and I definitely do see myself getting on that officer track soon. There is just a lot going on right now, and I don’t want Girls on Fire falling through the cracks.
Boden: OK, can you do me a favor? Why don’t you take a few days to think it over?
Kidd: OK, I will.
Kidd: Sorry, my head’s all over the place.
Brett: I don’t blame you.
Kidd: Everyone warned me that Kelly wasn’t the settling down type, that he would blow this up, somehow, someway.
Brett: But he’s changed so much since you two got together.
Kidd: Does anybody ever really change? What if everything I thought we had together was wrong?
Mackey: So are you going to tell me what’s going on with you and Casey because when we ran into that Sydney girl, you were pretty spun out.
Brett: We had a brief complicated thing, and I guess I was a little hurt to see how quickly he got over it, even though I’m the one who told him to. Honestly, I just want him to be happy.
Mackey: Well girl, clearly you need to get out and have some fun on your own.
Brett: Hey, um, I know I asked for space, and you’ve been really great about that, but it’s been a while, and it’s nice just to talk again, you know?
Casey: Yeah, it is.
Colson: I’ve seen this before: Medics swapping out narcotics for something benign, usually saline. How well do you know your new partner?
Brett: You think Gianna Mackey is stealing meds off of the ambulance? No way, no chance.
Boden: Mackey came to us highly recommended by Joe Cruz, who’s known her all her life. If Brett says that she trusts her, so do I.
Colson: I can respect that, but I’m going to have to open up an inquiry, and if this doesn’t get resolved, it comes back on the PIC.
Mackey: See, that’s why we’re so good together because when it matters, we give it all we got.
Gallo: See, I thought it was the crazy chemistry. So what is this you and me? Not that it has to have a label or anything.
Mackey: How about no rules, just fun.
Gallo: I like that except maybe, one rule. Cruz can never know this happened, which means we can’t tell anyone at the firehouse.
Mackey: I’ll think about it.
