Kelly: It gets resolved the way most disputes do. Nobody gets everything they want.
Frank: Perps do. It's free money.
Kelly: It's nickels on the dollar.
Frank: They're still free nickels.

Eddie: I'm just saying it's kind of boring.
Jamie: Baseball is boring. Seriously?
Eddie: Yeah, the games are like nine hours long. Nothing actually happens.
Jamie: Baseball is a metaphor for life.
Eddie: Yeah, and I'm not going to spend my lunch watching a bunch of grown men in pajamas…

Part of what we love most about the job is that there's always a fresh pain in the ass around the corner.

One of them thought you were cute. I guess that's what happens when it's 3am and you're drunk.

You don't regret the great relationships that failed, you regret the ones you never followed through on.

Erin

I would like you to put on an NYPD uniform, and 20 lbs. of equipment, and a gun belt, and run up six flights of stairs to save a woman who is being beaten by her boyfriend, and then, I would like you to be raked over the coals for your effort. And then, when you have that frame of reference, maybe we can talk.

Baker: Something occurred to me today. You are the only member of this department to have presided over a line of duty death both as the commissioner and as a fallen officer's father.
Frank: Meaning?
Baker: That maybe you should hold off meeting with the mayor until...
Frank: Until I'm calm. That'll be never.

Mayor Dutton

Danny: Amir's friend ID'd the shooter.
Erin: Yeah, but DeSilva was already in the back seat of the squad car when he was identified as the shooter.
Danny: So what?
Erin: So identifying him while he's in the backseat of a police car already handcuffed is suggestive. There's no way I can get a conviction.

Erin: I always wonder why they call it a Gentleman's Club.
Anthony: Looks better on your credit card receipt.

Erin: Do you believe him?
Frank: Yeah, I think I do.
Erin: That “think” kind of waters it down.

"By general law, life and limb must be protected, yet often a limb must be amputated to save a life, but a life is never wisely given to save a limb," Abraham Lincoln. This department is the life, Officer Whitman is a limb.
