Aaliyah: I should have stayed in your class.
Kidd: No.
Aaliyah: I didn’t think I was good enough.
Kidd: There isn't a girl in that class who isn't good enough, all right. That’s what I was trying to tell you when you first came.
Aaliyah: I should have listened. No one ever told me that before. Maybe, I couldn’t hear it from you.
Kidd: Well, that’s on me, OK. Not on you because I had never done that before, taught a bunch of girls. I didn’t have anyone in my life like that, not at that age. No one to tell me what my worth was, so, um, I didn’t know how to do it.
Aaliyah: No, no, you were strong. I think about how strong you were all the time.

Cruz: I’m taking a parenting class, ‘Baby basics for beginners.’ Just the dads and partners. There’s this one woman named Bailey. Anyway…
Violet: That sounds awesome.
Cruz: Really?
Violet: Yeah, your wife is going to be half a zombie, and you’re going to be ready to rock as a father on day one. I think it’s great.
Cruz: I appreciate your enthusiasm, but I’m getting my ass handed to me by this suck up named Huxley. Calls himself the king swaddler. Big showoff. I want to murder him.
Violet: How’s your swaddling?
Cruz: Needs work to be honest.

Aaliyah: You saved my life.
Kidd: You saved your own life is what you did. Yours and your brother’s. Do you have any idea how strong that makes you?
Aaliyah: Do you think I can come back to Girls on Fire.
Kidd: You come back anytime, anytime.

Severide: Looks like you climbed a few trees in your day.
Kidd: Yeah, I wasn’t much for Easy Bake Ovens growing up. I was out in the backyard getting my hands dirty. You think that guy’s gonna make it?
Severide: Ten percent chance, but it wouldn’t have been zero if you hadn’t taken the weight off him.
Casey: He’s right. You did good work.

Boden: Did the school bell ring?
Donna: Yes, it did. Can I tell you, I have never had a more attentive class than the ones today. Thanks to my secret weapons over here.
Gallo: It was fun. We were really happy to do it.
Ritter: Yeah, I wish I had a teacher like you growing up, no doubt. You were awesome to watch.
Donna: Thank you, you guys.

Kidd: Who is this?
Aaliyah: I can’t tell you.
Kidd: OK.
Aaliyah: You do Girls on Fire, right?
Kidd: That’s right.
Aaliyah: I came once. You said you rescue people. I need that.
Kidd: OK, well, I need you to tell me what’s going on so I can help you.

Casey: I just wanted to talk to you, man to man. Brett and I were never really an item. She asked for space, and I backed off. Plain and simple. I know you’re a great guy, and I see the way you’re into her. And I want you to know, I’m not going to try to get in the way of that. I want her to be happy. That’s all I want.
Grainger: You don’t get it, do you? I’m not thinking about what you’re going to do or not do. Honestly, I don’t care. What I think about is Sylvie. From everything I’ve witnessed over the last few months, she’s in love you.

Grainger: You warned me this could happen. I can't get upset about that. You left out that the friend you’re helping is Casey.
Brett: Oh, I… it’s really just a privacy thing. He hasn’t told a lot of people. I feel terrible about ruining another plan. Can we reschedule? Anytime.
Grainger: I don’t think that’s such a good idea.
Brett: Why not?
Grainger: Because I think you have some stuff you need to figure out, Sylvie.

Kidd: Commissioner, respectfully, you and I both had to fight to get our foot in the CFD’s door. And we continue to fight our way up the ladder to prove that we belong. This young man isn't perfect. He stole a car when he was 17. But he served his time, and he put his life on the line fighting wildfires for 80 cents an hour and some time knocked off his sentence. We met him on a call where he helped save the life of a woman when he could have run out the door. He has CFD material written all over him, and he can't even apply. We just want give him a fair shot.
Hill: I appreciate your passion, truly, I do, but the CFD is an elite group of men and women. We’re exclusionary on purpose. Some people can't be firefighters no matter how bad they want it.

Brett: I’m coming with you to hear the results.
Casey: Sylvie…
Brett: No, I know firefighting is your whole life, and you’re scared as hell, but so am I. We can be scared together.
Casey: You have your own life to deal with. I was being selfish.
Brett: Matt Casey, don’t argue with me. You just call me when you hear or else.

Gallo: Actually we don’t need Mike Thompson.
Mouch: You don’t?
Ritter: We found someone better.
Mouch: Better than ‘The Bullet’?
Ritter: Yeah.
Mouch: What does this mean?
Gallo: It means you Mouch.
Mouch: Me?
Ritter: Yeah, I want our group to get a little taste of everything I’ve learned from you. From the things you said to me when I was locked up on that stairwell to the skills I learned watching you on every call.
Gallo: And how you kicked epic ass on that party storefront.
Ritter: You’re the guy we want to hear from.

Casey: I was thinking it’d be better if I get the results alone.
Brett: Oh OK. Why?
Casey: I’ve been making too big a deal out of this. Honestly, no matter what the results are, I’ll be fine. You tagging along on every visit, it’s silly.

Chicago Fire Quotes

Chief Boden once told me, "a hero's not somebody who's unafraid, it's the guy who's scared to death and does what's right anyway."


You think I cant look after my daughter?
