No matter the hardship or the loss, this family does not stand down, ever.

Bad things happen to everyone, boys. We all get knocked down. What matters is you get up. You keep going.

Frank: Is there anything I can say?
Mayor Poole: You can give me your word that you'll be just as hard on my successor as you were on me.
Frank: You have my word.

Frank: Mr. Mayor, I think you have lost confidence in my command and I am prepared to step down.
Mayor Poole: Frank, this morning I paid a condolence call to the family of Fleming's last victims. Visits like that are the worst part of my job, yours too. I've done more than I can count, you probably ten times more than that.
Frank: I find no use in looking at that score board.
Mayor Poole: But it should offer some measure of comfort, Frank, and of hope.
Frank: That's all you can do.
Mayor Poole: Oh, but I didn't have it, Frank. I just couldn't find the words.
Frank: Sometimes there aren't any.
Mayor Poole: We should offer some hope. Hell, I won two terms on that message, but I didn't have it.
Frank: It was a tough week.
Mayor Poole: And this guy, this Evan Fleming. How many more of those are just walking around out there, waiting?
Frank: I don't know.
Mayor Poole: You can't know. I know. Or now I know.
Frank: Change the subject or you'll lose your mind.
Mayor Poole: You know I gave 28 years and the use of both my legs to this city. Loved nearly every single minute of it.
Frank: Oh, come on, Carter. You got a bar in here? Let's have drink.
Mayor Poole: Monday morning I'm submitting my resignation to the City Council and I wanted you to be the first to know. All I ask is that you respect my decision. Please.

Calls have been made. Things are motion. Those responsible will pay for what they did, and you know better than to ask particulars.

Garrett: The mayor wants you to handle the announcement solo.
Sid: Poole never missed a victory lap in his life.
Garrett: Until now.
Frank: It's about me taking the weight for six dead bodies.
Sid: But we caught the guy.
Frank: Yeah, but it comes soaked in blood and the mayor wants to keep his shoes clean.

I became a prosecutor to deliver justice and I'm damned good at it but if you don’t like the way I do it and you want to take me on, you go for it, but don't let the halo fool you cause I like a good fight.

So the ends justify the means, I must have missed that class in law school.

I know your brother, Danny, hell of a detective. If you were more like him maybe you still wouldn't be walking a beat.

Detective

Forensics hasn't gotten a good impression for all the gore.

Gormley

In what world is that fair to my client? A prosecutor who was stealing drugs gets immunity while the regular citizen gets prison.

Defense Attorney

If one more person gets killed because you're not telling us what you know, we're going to have a serious problem and I don't mean a Russian, America problem, I mean a me and you personal problem.

Blue Bloods Quotes

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.

Frank

In most places they call that a badge but in New York they call it a shield. You know why? Because a shield is used to protect people.
