Stop selling me this fairy tale about how things are gonna be if I just fight. Not while I'm doing everything I can to wrap my head around what's real.

Anna [to Kelly, about her leukemia]

Kannall: Matt Casey! Respectable guy. Officer on the CFD, happily married, and a damn alderman to boot.
Matt: Can't be entirely respectable.
Kannall: Just saying. You done good, brother. Considering the homes you and I came up in? It wasn't necessarily in the cards.

Might want to vacate that seat. Wars have been started over less.

Casey [to Kannall, who is sitting in Severide's chair]

Otis: I just wanted to swing by and pass along some pro tips when it comes to dealing with Connie.
Marcy: I don't follow.
Otis: How do I put this? There are ground rules, okay? You don't ask questions, you know. You avoid making eye contact. She may perceive that as a challenge.

I just want you to know, like it or not, you're loved and you're not alone.

Kelly [to Anna]

Sylvie: Okay, so you've done this before. Are the quizzes open book, or should I invest in flashcards?
Gabby: Um, I sort of erased that experience from my memory. Disciplinary training is less like college and more like traffic school.

June: Where are the babies?
Nurse: Oh, we had a tough night. Two went in the intensive care unit and the others are with God.

Ofglen: Be careful, a lot of the drivers work for the Eyes.
Offred: He said I shouldn't trust you. He said you were dangerous.
Ofglen: Really? I mean, he's right. Trusting anyone's dangerous. Especially a carpet-munching gender traitor.

Girls? I know this must feel so strange, but ordinary is just what you're used to. This may not be ordinary to you now, but after a time it will. This will become ordinary.

Aunt Lydia

A priest, a doctor, a gay man. I think I heard that joke once. This wasn't the punchline.


Offred: Moira? What'd they do to her?
Moira: If my right eye offends thee, pluck it out. We're breeding stock. You don't need eyes for that.

The bath is required before the Ceremony. I am to make myself clean. Washed and brushed like a prized pig.
