Chicago Fire Season 9 Episode 3: "Smash Therapy" Quotes
Casey: I’m really sorry about the way things went down the other night.
Brett: No, don’t be. Like I said, this is on me.
Casey: It was on both of us, and I want you to know I don’t regret it.
Casey: It sounds like you do.
Boden: Ritter, come here.
Ritter: What’s up, chief?
Boden: What is that?
Ritter: I think it’s one of those standing desks.
Boden: But why?
Boden: Why is it here in my office?
Ritter: I don’t know, chief. I didn’t have anything to do with this.
Kylie: Why do you think?
Boden: About the, uh?
Kylie: Yeah, I found it in the utility closet. You were complaining about your back earlier, so I figured.
Kylie: And you know what they say: Sitting is the new smoking.
Boden: Right, right, OK. Well done, Kylie.
Mouch: I don’t know what happened. Lock’s working just fine now, but on the call… I swear I locked it in. I know I did.
Herrmann: OK, what’d Casey say?
Mouch: Not a lot. Just stared at me with hate in his eyes.
Herrmann: No he didn’t. Maybe, he’s a little pissed off is my guess.
Mouch: Got every right to be. He was half an inch away from a career-ending injury or worse. I know I didn’t bump lever, and even if I did, when it’s locked in, it shouldn’t move.
Herrmann: Hey, if you say it was locked in, I believe you.
Mouch: Then why can’t I find a mechanical problem? Can you just let me?
Herrmann: OK, of course.
Mouch: I got to figure this out. What happened today, it can’t ever happen again.
Conway: I met your girlfriend today at the lieutenant candidates meeting.
Severide: Is that so.
Conway: Took me ‘til I was 42 to make lieutenant. She’s really zooming up the ladder.
Severide: She’s a great firefighter.
Conway: If you say so. These days they promote people for all kinds of reasons that have nothing to do with skill and experience.
Severide: She has both.
Conway: Sure. I’ll tell you what. A victim that’s got to be shoulder carried down a ground ladder doesn’t care that there are enough ladies in the CFD or diversity. They just need saving. Am I right?
Severide: You might want to think about retirement, chief. You’re starting to sound a little creaky.
Conway: I get it. You go to defend your girl, but it’s funny because folks around here are saying the real reason Kidd’s moving up so fast is you.
Severide: What are you talking about?
Conway: It can’t hurt sleeping with an officer, especially one so closely connected to Commissioner Grissom. I’m just telling you what everyone else is saying. Don’t shoot the messenger.
Casey: Care to explain, Mouch.
Mouch: I don’t know what happened. Captain, I swear it was locked.
Casey: Yeah, sure, OK. Good job.
Severide: Actually, I just ran into Chief Conway, and…
Kidd: I have to say I feel so much better after leaving that meeting. People coming up, saying really nice things. It meant a lot.
Severide: That’s, yeah, I’m glad to hear.
Kidd: I’m geared up. I’m gonna hit the books hard. I’m gonna dazzle those white shirts. I’m gonna get myself a promotion. Do Boden proud. You’ll take me through the squad later?
Severide: Uh, you don’t need my help with that. There’s all kinds of diagrams.
Kidd: Diagrams? I thought you were going to walk me through it. Listen, I’ll make it fun.
Severide: I’m sure you would, but I got a thing to do after shift.
Kidd: A thing?
Severide: Yes. Capp, walk Kidd through squad, OK.
Capp: Sure, after I get a little me time.
Kidd: No, I can wait until you have time.
Severide: Capp could use the extra training.
Brett: I don’t want things to be weird between us.
Casey: Neither do I. They don’t have to be. I know what I said the other night, but you have to know my feelings for you, they’re real, Sylvie, regardless of Gabby.
Brett: There is no regardless of Gabby. That’s the point.
Casey: I’m not sure that has to be true.
Brett: I am. Matt, what happened between us, it can’t happen again, ever. You’ve been such a great friend to me.
Casey: I feel the same way.
Brett: I just I need a little space right now. I can’t go right back to the way things were, pretend nothing happened.
Mackey: Play time is over. Can I get in trouble for that?
Brett: That thing was clearly a threat to our safety.
Woman: Finish it.
Mackey [to Brett]: I feel like you might need this more than I do.
Brett: Oh no, you do it.
Woman: I’ll do it.
Brett: Oh no, you should stay still.
Mackey: You ever heard of smash therapy? People pay good money for this.
Gallo: Hey, Kylie, come clean. What do you have on Chief Boden?
Gallo: Why is he so nice to you?
Kylie: Because he’s a giant teddy bear. What?
Herrmann: More like a grizzly.
Gallo: Or a T-rex.
Casey: Not any more. Looks like that was the extent of it. Gabby, our relationship, it’s always going to be an issue for Sylvie.
Severide: And for you?
Casey: I thought so, but to be honest these last few months, I haven’t had any contact with Gabby or thought much about her. Sylvie’s been the only one of my mind.
Severide: But you’re just going to let it go?
Casey: That’s what she wants, so, I don’t know. Maybe it’s for the best.
Severide: Is it? It sounds to me like you’ve got it pretty bad for Brett.
Casey: I think that’s exactly why I have to pull back. It’s the best thing for her.
Kylie: You don’t like the standing desk.
Boden: It’s not that I don’t like it. I just… I don’t like it. Whoever invented it needs their butt kicked.
Kylie: Why didn’t you just say so? Chief, just because I’m a girl, you don’t have to go easy on me.
Boden: It is not because you are a girl. It’s because I don’t want to be the one to dampen your enthusiasm for this job.
Kylie: The only thing that can dampen my enthusiasm is watching my chief squatting on box too scared to treat me like a normal person. If one of your guys put this here, what would you say to them?
Boden: I’d say, ‘Get this out of my sight right now.’
Kylie: You got it, chief.
Boden: Get my chair back in here.
Kylie: Yes, sir.
Mouch: Herrmann, what possessed you to do all the leg work?
Herrmann: I knew you didn’t screw up, so it had to be something else.
Herrmann: Fricking Gorsch.
Mouch: I hate that guy.
