When Mary died, when I lost my wife, I was a mess and it was my kids, Joe, Erin, Jamie, and Danny who, even though they had lost their mom, always made sure, each in their own way, to be there for me. I'm not sure what a shrink would say about that, but it was appreciated.

Abigail, I'm tired. The kind of tired you can't sleep off.

Frank

Detective: We have to make it look less suspicious; you need a girlfriend.
Eddie: I guess that's where I come in? I've always wanted to be arm candy.

That's all you’ve got? I don't think the mayor likes me? Who the hell do you think you're talking to here?

Abigail

Erin: Who would want to kill Jack?
Danny: It's Jack, the list of possible suspects is endless. He's been a prosecutor and a defense attorney. He deals with a lot of bad people.
