Owen: [nods] Yeah.
Doctor: Then I don't have to tell you by the 20th anniversary of 9/11, more survivors who were there that day and during the cleanup will get sick or die than people killed on 9/11 itself.
Owen: This is going to kill me, isn't it?

Radford: We need somebody like you. We need somebody who truly understands how much rebuilding this house is gonna heal the community.

Mateo: My teachers always told me I was a little slow.

Judd: Hey, look, man. I saw what you're doin' when I came in here. You got a whole, ah, we are the world thing goin' right, but you got no place for a guy like me who can actually do the job.
Owen: Mr. Ryder, I'm gonna do you a favor.
Judd: You're gonna do me a favor? Who the hell do you think you are?! This is MY house!
Owen: It was.
Owen: Whoa whoa whoa. Since when does EMS tell Fire what time it is?
Michelle: You didn't read the Travis County manual, did you?
Owen: I'm more of a visual learner.

Owen: What's your routine? Your skincare regimen?
Paul: Uh, soap and water?
Owen: Are you insane? That is the worst thing you can do. Soap dries you out.
Mateo: Isn't that a good thing?
Owen: NO! The single biggest mistake all men make when it comes to skincare is not washing properly, which is particularly problematic for guys like us. You know, the more we sweat, the more we break out. So, I start my routine with a general exfoliating cleanser. It's all organic and has detoxifying malachite.
Michelle: Captain Strand, shall we?
Owen: Oh, no, no, no. You do not want to see me line dance.
Michelle: Oh, are you shy? I thought you weren't scared of anything.
Owen: Ahhh, now I see why you invited us all here. I see you. Tryin' to exert your dominance?
Michelle: Well, I just think a man should have to earn his spurs.
Owen: I gotta say, it was a surprise meeting your wife.
Judd: Cause she's black?
Owen: Because she's wise. She's a smart lady. You married up.
