Station 19 Season 3 Episode 14: "The Ghosts That Haunt Me" Quotes
Ben: You knew you wanted to be a firefighter when you were 7?
Pruitt: The red trucks, the sirens, the suspenders, the boots. I loved it all. How could I be anything else?
Ben: Yeah. You were a great firefighter, sir.
Pruitt: I was a good firefighter. Great firefighters get good firefighters killed. You succeed or fail as a team. You can paint outside the lines once in a while, but it’s always about that team.
Jack: We have to get out.
Andy: OK, look at me, look at me. You were right. You were right. It might have been a mistake to marry Sullivan. Come on. It seemed like a good idea. I was mostly thinking about my dad walking me down the aisle before he died, and Diane got inside my head about how I was trying to replace my father, and I was trying to prove her wrong, but somehow I ended up proving her right … I’m scared to even tell people we’re married. Look, I know it’s crazy what we did. And… and they’ll think I just did it out of panic, fear, and grief, but maybe I did. But also, I swear, I did it out of love. I do love him, Jack, but I’m terrified.
Jack: You kinda should be.
Sullivan: I had a feeling to go into that storage unit.
Ben: You’re battalion chief. You don’t get to break rules just because you have a feeling. You abandoned your command, and you abandoned your team.
Sullivan: I had no other choice.
Ben: You could have gone up on that roof.
Sullivan: The roof was suicide. Capt. Herrera had cancer.
Ben: No, don’t you dare make this about his cancer. If Pruitt Herrera had been perfectly healthy, he still would have gone up on that roof. It never once occurred to you to climb up there and do that.
Sullivan: I have to stay alive for my wife, who has lost enough this year and who was going to lose her father soon, with or without the fire.
Ben: Your what?
Sullivan: Andy and I got married a couple weeks ago. Her father walked her down the aisle. He blessed it. He shook my hand. Warren, I had to go in there to save my wife.
Carina: I, too, love my dad very much. He’s… he’s brilliant. He’s… he’s funny. He’s… he’s my hero in so many ways. But that’s why it took me so long to realize that he wasn’t OK. It took me so long to realize that… that it isn’t normal to live your life on eggshells. Maya, denial is a strong force, and the abuse your mom described outside is still abuse.
Maya: I’m not in denial. I won a gold medal because of my dad. I am the youngest fire captain in Seattle, and this station’s first female captain because of my dad. I am not in denial. I am pissed.
