S.W.A.T. Season 1 Episode 7 Quotes

Hondo: You know everything I've done since what happened back then, was me trying to be as worthy as you thought I was. You helped make me who I am. But I made you who you are too, and I've been sorry about that ever since.
Leroy: Man, come on, get over yourself! I'd be right here even if we never met. We all got our own paths, this was mine, you just happened to jaywalk across it back then. You hear what I'm saying? This is not your fault.

Look, we're trying to celebrate a man's life here. You need to shake a few hands, smile at the stories. Say something nice for the memorial. The girl's still waiting to put you on camera. Either find the strength or fake it. But do it.

Luca's Dad [to Luca]
