Brett: How do you like the new guy?
Boden: Eh, jury's out.

No I could never date anyone there; it’s against the rules. Pretty much everyone breaks them, but still.


Gallo: I realize this opportunity comes to me at a very high cost to 51. I don’t take that lightly. I know I’ll be walking in the shadow of a beloved member of this family. I intend to honor Otis’ memory in everything I do here.
Boden: Welcome to 51.

Boden: He’s a daredevil Casey. He’s not coming into my firehouse.
Casey: Chief, as captain of Truck 81, I should have the right to pick my own crew.
Boden: I have just buried a firefighter, and I’m not going to bury another one.

Foster: Wow, how many shampoos does one woman need?
Kidd: When Brett emptied her locker, I took in her toiletries. I didn’t want them to feel abandoned.

Brian Zvonacek – He was our brother, he was a friend, he was hell of a firefighter. He was smart, he was funny, he was kind, he was unselfish, and he was loyal. So if you see someone – a fellow firefighter, a citizen, a friend – standing, looking at this memorial, I want you to come down and tell them about Brian. You tell them the story about who Brian was, the kind of man he was. And that way, you will bring this memorial to life.


The order was mine. In a fire scene, in all the chaos and unpredictability, a firefighter can only relay back to his incident commander the information he has at the time, but it is up to the chief to make a decision where or when to send the additional resources … It was I, not Captain Casey, not anyone else, but I who ordered them into the fire scene. So if you are looking to blame someone, if you are looking for a human scapegoat, blame me.


You know what my big fear is? We got all these plaques on the wall and these badges at the academy, but what happens five years from now, or ten, when we’re all split up and there’s new firefighters walking the halls at 51. And somebody goes, ‘Who is that guy,’ and nobody knows.


The roof collapsed? That’s two feet of concrete. I never would have called you into position if I’d known.


The other night Severide said they’re going to write this report – it’ll be stamped I’m clear – and it will be shoved in a desk somewhere and disappear forever … It’s just I lost a firefighter that day. I’ll never be clear.


Cruz: I know you’re going up to a better place and I know when you get there, they’re going to welcome you with open arms. Maybe, you could save us a place to live up there together, you know. I’ll be there someday. I love you brother. I love you, and I’m going to miss you.
Otis: Brother, I will be with you always.

You're not doing your job as a parent unless your kid is scared to death of you.
