You are not the decider. And pretty soon, we’re gonna be in the same rank, so listen up. I am...
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.
