Station 19 Season 4 Episode 3: "We Are Family" Quotes
Andy: I don’t know what happened to our friendship, but I know I never forgave you taking the job, for Jack, for some many things that weren’t entirely your fault, and my life kept rolling forward, blow after blow and I never processed it. I kept it inside. I fell back on my dad’s bad habits. I walled up and isolated and shut down because that’s how things were handled in my family, and you freak out over French toast because you never felt safe around the breakfast table as a kid. I miss having a friend that’s just as messed up as me.
Maya: Well, you have Jack.
Andy: I’m so it’s taken me so long to say all this.
Maya: No, I’m sorry.
I know what I did was wrong. I know I made mistakes. I made colossally bad calls, but I also know I made a lot of good ones. I made decades of good ones, saving lives, helping more people than I can count, and I’m not even close to being done. Look, I regret every moment of pain I caused my colleagues. I regret breaking their trust, and I plan to spend the rest of my career making it up to them, making it right, if you let me.Sullivan
You didn’t intend to take anything from me, and that matters. We’re 19. We fight the fight together.Ben
Jack: Inara is my friend, man. If you have a problem…
Dean: I don’t have a problem with Inara.
Jack: You called her a rescue.
Dean: Jack, you’re picking a fight with me about something I don’t want to fight you on after you popped my kneecap back in place. Dude, I get it. I’m not judging you. You never had parents, so Marsha’s your surrogate mother. Marcus reminds you of your deaf foster sister, and Inara is in love with you, which is your favorite thing. I’m happy for you, Jack. I’m proud of you. I’m glad you have a family. Prue was the best thing that happened to me, and I didn’t even know I wanted her.
Maya: So Carina moved in. This morning, she made me French toast, and I know, I known how nice, what a lovely gesture. My super, super hot Italian girlfriend got up early to make me this gourmet breakfast, and I sat there nearly breaking out in hives because it was so, so nice. Too nice. I kept looking around at my apartment at her things on my bookshelves, and her vagina art…
Andy: Vagina art?
Maya: And her bras drying in my bathroom, and I’m like, ‘Is this my life now?’ I mean I’m allergic to monogamy, and I moved in with my girlfriend during a pandemic, and there’s something wrong with me because she’s perfect. And I want to be with her, and I want to live with her, but it’s like my body has a security system that goes off at all the wrong times. It’s like my wiring is faulty, or maybe Carina is light and lovely, and I’m not. I’m dark as hell and messy, and I just need to be able to call my equally dark and messy best friend when I am freaking out over vagina art and French toast, and I can’t.
Andy: You can call me.
Maya: Can I? I mean your entire world crumbled a few weeks ago, and I heard about it from Gibson.
Travis: OK, No. 1 for the record, I didn’t force anyone… Oh my god.
Travis: I was sleeping with my dad. Emmett was my dad.
Vic: Oh yeah, that totally tracks, actually, but you know what, whatever. It happens to all of us at some point.
Lowther: Exactly how long have you known Robert Sullivan?
Richard: Long enough to know that he’s a man…
Lowther: So, your recommendation is based on what, your own personal history as a drug addict?
Richard: What’s the toughest thing you’ve ever overcome, Mr. Lowther? A bad hair day, a traffic ticket, your favorite Ribeye overcooked? Addiction is a disease, sir. It’s not a weakness or a shortcoming.
Lowther: Thank you, doctor.
Richard: Overcoming addiction is a daily battle. It’s clawing your way back to any semblance of normal, and there is nothing harder than that first step, and Robert Sullivan has taken it, despite the agonizing pain of withdrawal, despite the fear of losing the career he loves, he’s still putting one foot in front of the other. One day at a time and he deserves to be judged as much for that as he does his past.
Andy: Look, I am his wife, and he has asked me not to be there, and I really want to ignore that, but I can’t, so I’m asking you to bust in there, bring everyone, help the commission see what type of man my husband really is.
Maya: I’m sorry. I can’t, Andy. He asked me not to.
Ben: Herrera, I already know what you’re going to say.
Andy: Great, so I can stop worrying you’re going to end my husband’s firefighting career.
Ben: I’m gonna tell the truth.
Andy: And I’m not telling you not to. I’m just saying Robert made a mistake, and there’s a way to talk about his mistake and how he’s worked himself back from it.
Ben: Andy, no one’s saying he hasn’t changed. I’ve seen it; I’ve seen him, but…
Andy: But what?
Ben: This is my dream, Andy, and that dream might come to an end because of what Sullivan did. Countless lives might not be saved…
Andy: Imagine if it was Miranda. What if Miranda made a mistake, and you needed me to help. I mean obviously it would never be you and Miranda because you’re you and Miranda. You’re both so clear and smart and moral and fine. You’re always so fine, which is why I need you to help us. You have to help us so Robert and I can have a shot at being you and Miranda. So we can have a shot at being fine.
Ben: I’m gonna tell the truth.
Sullivan: Nice to meet you in real life, sir.
Richard: You’re taller than I thought.
Dean: What’s this?
Dean: Pre-cut fruit?
Vic: It truly is some days.
Dean: Wait, no eggs and bacon? We don’t get eggs and bacon? Don’t we sacrifice enough?
