Buck: It's been like, 14 hours. How long does it take to pull a rod out of a guy's skull anyway?
Hen: You ever heard that saying, "It ain't brain surgery?" Well, this is.
Chimney: How come I'm not dead?
Bobby: Because you are the luckiest and the unluckiest son of a bitch on the face of the earth all at the same time.
Hen: Oh, oh, so you're fleeing the scene? You do realize that you lose points for murdering people on the way to a fire.

My family is everything to me. And there ain't no trouble from the inside, or evil from the outside that's going to tear it apart. Now we may be buried in it up to our necks right now, and I may want to slap you with my left hand, but my right hand is holding you and the kids tight.Athena
Abby: I'm not asking out that fireman. He's way too young for me.

He broke up with me, and he did not have my permission. But I'll tell you the truth, really once my mom moved in here, I really didn't have anything else to give. And what guy is gonna want to be here with me with my mom snoring in the other room? I mean, it's not sexy.Abby
Look, people dying is part of the gig, right? See your problem is you're looking at every job like it's a long term relationship. They're one-night stands, man. In the moment they mean everything to you, but once the morning comes, it's on to the next one.Howie
Athena Grant called me, wanted to tell me what an asset you are. I told her she was half right.Bobby
Athena: All right. No heroics. Don't go chasing waterfalls.
Buck: I don't know what that means.
Athena: Nobody thought you would.
Buck: Why I don't I just punch it in its face?
Bobby: You can't punch it in the face, Buck, it's a snake. It's not some guy in an El Torito happy hour.
