I don't mind tough questions as long as my answers are printed accurately without any shade or shine.

Eddie: Apparently I talk about you too much and it made him feel inferior, I guess.
Jamie: Well, I see how I could make other guys feel inferior.

Anthony: When Sophia grows up I hope she's just like you, and not because you're a hottie.
Erin: A hottie?
Anthony: Not because you're good looking, but because you're smart, you know what you want, and you know how to go after it. And you're a good mom because you taught Nicky to be the same way.

Frank: Oh, our dinners really aren't about eating.
Erin: I know.
Frank: You hope the food's good but the connection's why we gather.

Erin: Okay, so you guys want to stop sugar coating it now?
Frank: Nobody's sugar coating it.
Erin: Really?
Frank: Yeah.
Erin: Because I don't hear anyone talking about the stinkers and the jumpers, the crack addicts and the child abusers. Not to mention the anti-cop sentiment that is your thank you these days.

If a smart, savvy, young candidate from a long line of dedicated cops wants to take the exam, if I blink at that you should throw me out the door.

Anthony: You think I'm looking for happy endings in a sleazy massage parlor for kicks while I'm on duty?
Danny: That's not what I was saying. I mean, obviously it wasn't a happy ending, look how the hell it turned out for you.

Most guys find out I'm a cop and that's an instant turn off. God forbid I should carry a gun and kick ass.

Eddie

There is no better feeling for a cop than slapping the cuffs on a bad guy and getting them off the street.

Erin: Nicky is not a cop.
Frank: You don’t know that.
Erin: I am very proud to come from a cop family. It defines who I am and what I do. Nicky is not a cop.
Frank: She doesn't get to decide what she wants to do for a living?
Erin: That's not fair.
Frank: But it is the real question here.

Frank: I've heard one side called fascist and cruel, the other called fairy tales for snowflakes. Neither is true. The middle ground has gone missing.
Erin: How do you get it back?
Frank: I don't know.

Erin: How can you say I'm wasting resources?
Anthony: Because you're looking for a guy who doesn't want to be found for his son who doesn't care about finding him. Pretty much defines wasting resources.

Blue Bloods Quotes

Only a fool seeks peace by inciting violence.

That even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop on the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
