Chicago Fire Season 8 Episode 8: "Seeing Is Believing" Quotes
I know you’re in compliance. I know you’re very careful to make sure that your furniture meets the minimum safety standards. But which kind of goal is that – the bare minimum? Look, we’re not asking for a miracle here. We know you gotta make a buck. We just want you to take care of your customers, ok. Give those people more than just a nice piece of furniture; give those people a fighting chance because every single second counts.Herrmann
We see a lot of close calls in our line of work. How soon we can get to a victim, how fast we can get some poor shot kid to the ER. Most of the time their fate – whether they live or die – comes down to a matter of seconds … I hope you understand that in the space of a single heartbeat, my friend Brian saved the lives of me and six other firefighters in your factory fire, but that heartbeat was his last. He was as good a person as you could ever hope to know.Herrmann
Casey: What am I supposed to put in the report? That you spaced out, that Mouch was quicker than you?
Kidd: It won’t happen again.
Casey: I’m already training one new firefighter; I can’t train two.
Van Meter: Have you ever watched a juggler? You know, like an at the circus juggler? You see, a juggler has a limited amount of hands in which to juggle a limited number of balls. If he takes the hand out of the mix or adds too many balls, then everything crashes to the ground. We only have two hands Severide and eight months’ worth of balls out there.
Severide: With all due respect, if you wanted someone to just come in here and rubber stamp things, you detailed the wrong guy.
Herrmann: Ok guys, let’s pack it up. We’re moving on to Plan B.
Gallo: What’s Plan B?
Herrmann: Uh, do some brainstorming over at Molly’s.
PR Lady: Well, I can assure you we have warning labels on all of our furniture expressly stating that smoking or an open flame such as a candle on or around our materials is a hazard.
Herrmann: No, you see, what your warning labels don’t cover lady is that your company products are made out of gasoline.
PR Lady: Our furniture is composed of materials that fall well within state, federal, and international code.
Herrmann: Who cares about code when people are dying?
Seager: This place is a little creepy. What?
Severide: Just didn’t picture you the scaredy-cat type.
Seager: That’s offensive because inside I know you’re thinking, ‘She’s right. It’s freaky in here.’
Seager: And you’re also thinking, ‘How did I get so damn lucky to get a partner like her?’
Herrmann: Where is the oversight, huh? They’ll give me a ticket for parking in the yellow zone but no one is regulating what my furniture is made of.
Mouch: Well, these big companies have the money to make sure the government lowers the safety standards.
Gallo: We should cancel them.
Gallo: You go on Insta and you shame the hell out of ‘em.
Boden: What’d you and Severide call ‘em: cigar chats?
Casey: I don’t think we call them anything chief.
Boden: Well, since your partner in crime has been detailed out, maybe I could fill in.
Casey: Say no more.
Brett and Kidd: They reached so high, high, high; they touched the sky, sky.
Kidd: I’m 90 percent sure there’s a double hand clap there.
Brett: Oh, that makes more sense.
Both: And they never came back, back, back, Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack.
