Chicago Fire Quotes
Brett: You reapplied to med school?
Foster: I… I wanted to tell you. I started to, but first I just wanted to know if it was even a possibility.
Brett: Well, it sounds like it is a possibility Foster.
Foster: I have a meeting Wednesday with admissions. First, I just wanted to… you and me, I think we should talk about it.
Brett: Why? It seems you’ve already made up your mind.
You get told a lot in high school what you can’t do, and you get it from all sides. You get it from your teachers, your classmates, but not here. In this program, you are going to get told over and over what you can do because I just saw what you can do. So don’t let anyone -- and I mean anyone -- ever stand between you and the goals you set for yourself.Kidd
Violet: You’ve texted me five times in the last 24 hours.
Gallo: Well, you didn’t text me back, and I was wondering what was up.
Violet: What’s up is that we aren’t in a serious relationship, which sometimes means we might go a little while without texting or talking, and there’s no reason to freak out.
Gallo: I’m not freaked out.
Violet: The last text asked if I was dead.
Herrmann: Hey, how’s Capp doing?
Severide: Don’t know but might have to kill him.
Casey: He skipped out against doctor’s orders.
Capp: Hey guys.
Severide: What the hell are you doing?
Capp: They said I need to rest my eyes.
Severide: They said stay under hospital supervision.
Casey: You need to go back and see Dr. Halstead or he’s reporting you to the CFD.
Capp: I’m already feeling better.
Severide: Ever tell you the first time I met Capp? We get a fire call to this big apartment complex. The whole place is cooking, and there’s this woman stuck behind a door that I couldn’t open for the life of me. I tried wheel kicking it, prying the hinges, but couldn’t get the damn thing to budge. I feel this firefighter from another truck next to me, so I scream at him to get a sledgehammer. He heads away for about five steps, then turns back, runs, and flies through the air like the Karate Kid. And his foot goes right through the damn door, and now he’s stuck. But I can reach through the hole he made and finally unlock the door.
Casey: Only Capp.
Severide: Only Capp.
Foster: I need your advice, and I need to give it to me straight.
Kidd: Do I ever hold back?
Foster: No, you don’t, which is why I wanted to tell you I have a meeting on the books with the admission’s committee at Northwestern.
Kidd: Wait, start over.
Foster: I want to go back to med school.
Kidd: Wow, whoa.
Foster: It’s just a meeting, but yeah, it’s something I’ve been… I’ve had on my mind for a while.
Kidd: That’s great.
Foster: But the thing is that was before everything happened with Brett’s birth mom dying, and then Cruz moving out. What kind of friend would I be if I were to abandon her in the middle of all that?
Kidd: Look, I can’t tell you what to do here, but what I can tell you is you shouldn’t be talking to me. You should be talking to Brett.
Foster: So just dump this in her lap on top of everything she’s gone through? No, no thank you.
Kidd: She’s your partner, your roomie, and one of your best friends. Talk to her. You told me to give it you straight. I’m giving it to you straight.
Violet: What’s going on with you?
Gallo: The other day when you said you were going out to the Sox game with another guy…
Gallo: I just… I guess I didn’t really like it. That’s all.
Violet: You didn’t like it?
Violet: You’re the one who said we should see other people.
Gallo: No, I know. I just didn’t think you actually would.
Violet: So you figured you would see other people, and I would what, just sit at home, mooning after you.
Gallo: That’s not it at all.
Violet: You are the most arrogant…
Gallo: Maybe we should be exclusive.
Violet: Maybe we should break up.
Gallo: Maybe we should get married.
I know you read my application, and I know you are aware of the circumstances surrounding why I am reapplying to Northwestern. I made a life-altering mistake, and I won’t make excuses for it. That said, that mistake was the best thing that ever happened to me. I wasn’t ready, and I get that now. In the last three years, I have met and worked with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever known. And I’ve learned so much from all of them. With their help, I’ve been able to transform myself into a responsible, knowledgeable, caring, resourceful paramedic, the kind of paramedic who knows how to put the patient first and handle whatever is required on the other end of a 911 call. I’ve been in the trenches, and I know now that I am ready to be a great student and an even better doctor.Foster
Brett: They are moving back to Rockford.
Foster: Oh damn.
Brett: I just had this idea that I would get to see her all the time. You know, swing by, take her to the park, bring her to our place for playdates, just watch her get bigger.
Foster: Well, Rockford isn’t that far.
Brett: Yeah, I know, and I’ll make it work. I am not going to let someone else I care about out of my life, you know?
Severide: What’s this?
Capp: Ding a ling ding. It’s 51’s original bell. I’m gonna get it shining again.
Severide: Nah, not here.
Capp: Squad table’s everyone’s table. Er, I mean everyone on Squad’s table.
Severide: Hey, you the manager?
Severide: We were here this morning.
Owner: Uh-huh, yeah.
Severide: Just wondering how much you’re getting paid under the table to dump hazardous materials.
Owner: Hey, I can’t personally check every piece of metal that comes through here.
Cruz: I thought that was your job.
Owner: I got a whopper of a fine from OSHA. What more do you want?
Severide: One of my men might lose his eyesight.
Owner: Hey, some of my people got hurt too.
Severide: That’s on you.
