Hondo: Then why leave? Right when we can help you the most?
Daniel Sr.: Because if I leave, you can hate me, instead of me breaking your hearts again.
Hondo: Listen here. Ain't no world where you disappear and hearts don't get broken.

Deacon: Garrett, Ramiro, and the others are staying pretty tight-lipped.
Tam: I guess they're more afraid of whoever ordered the hits than the American justice system.
Deacon: At some point, Garrett's gonna realize that those shooters were firing at him too. Maybe he's going to rethink his loyalties.

Chris: Who's in the hospital? I saw someone trying to call your phone.
Street: I told you that it's nothing.
Chirs: If it's nothing, then answer me.
Street: My mom has been sick for a while, apparently. Um, they transferred her from the prison infirmary to Pleasant Green Hospital.
Chris: I'm really sorry to hear that. You talk to her, see her?
Street: No. I told you, I'm done trying to save her.

Luca: Well, LA's got the largest Guatemalan community in the U.S. That means lots of political enemies to squeeze, undocumented workers to extort.
Hicks: But if your M.O. is to target your own people, why the hell would you kill an American Reporter?

Jillian: When we first met, maybe I could have given you the benefit of the doubt.
Deacon: Well, after what your daughter saw happen to her boyfriend, I can, I can understand why you didn't. See, I, I forget sometimes that not every police officer that wears that badge holds himself to the high standards that we do here at SWAT. And I don't think I said this, and I should have. I am truly sorry for your loss.

You know, there's something wrong with a grown man who's still playing video games. It shows a lack of maturity.


Deacon: By the way, it's not like I was their only option.
Hondo: Deacon, just try to look at it from Jillian's perspective. Rhodium made a stand about police brutality but not all police, Deac. In her mind, if you got a problem with that, then maybe you're part of the problem.
Deacon: I'm part of the problem? It's not just that. It's this whole defund the police nonsense. It's not exactly the thanks we deserve for going out there and risking our lives everyday. And to her, it might just be something she's chanting, but a thing like that changes the way people look at us. It makes our job harder.
Hondo: And I hear you, and that is one truth. But there's also another truth, man. We got guns on our hips. We got the power to end a life. Look, maybe it doesn't hurt to have some people out there trying to hold us all accountable.
Deacon: Are you trying to calm me down or make me angrier?
Hondo: Deac, you and I both know that sometimes we get asked to take on problems where there is no one right answer. What Rhodium was talking about is maybe some things can be solved without a gun.
Deacon: I don't like the mom implying that I won't go out there and do my job tomorrow. Take a bullet just like anybody else.
Hondo: OK, then you get out there and you prove her wrong, without the taking a bullet part.

I'll be seeing you around, Hondo.
