Season 1Edit

Pilot [1.01]Edit

Samaritan [1.02]Edit

Sgt. Renzulli: Hey, college boy, tell your brother the first rule of riding in my car.
Danny: Jamie, tell your boss I know Brooklyn better than a Manhattan cop.
Jamie: This is me keeping my mouth shut.

Erin: If anyone's going to punch my ex out it's going to be me.
Frank: I wouldn't mind being there to see that.

Privilege [1.03]Edit

Officer Down [1.04]Edit

Frank: I think you're stuck with the role of bad cop.
Erin: Which is ironic since I'm the only one in the family who isn't.

After Hours [1.10]Edit

Det. Curatola: You enjoying yourself, Reagan?
Danny: How could I not be? Come on. We just took a statement from a six-four transsexual escort who thinks her Labradoodle was dognapped by her shrink. How can I not be having fun right now?

Danny: This is the New York that I love. The one you never see on a postcard.
Det. Curatola: Now there's an untapped market: tranny hooker postcards.

Little Fish [1.11]Edit

Det. Curatola: Well, listen, here's what we're gonna do; We're gonna figure out who did this, and we're gonna string him up by his family jewels. It's not gonna bring her back, but it's gonna make you feel better.

Frank: Nothing undermines our way of life more than the taking of it.

Henry: It's the losses that keep you up at night.

Family Ties [1.12]Edit

Frank: (speaking to Danny and Jackie about the car bomb and its ties to the Russian mob) I want Grushenko for this. They say his people have a code of silence. What they really have is a code of betrayal. That's how we got the brigades the first time and that's how we'll finish them now.
Chief Winston: Yes, sir.
Frank: No one's turning my city into Baghdad.

Age of Innocence [1.16]Edit

Jackie: So if you're single and unhappy at work you're a suspect for murder.

To Tell the Truth [1.18]Edit

Frank: Family is what makes us strong.

All That Glitters [1.20]Edit

Jackie: Do you Reagans ever take a day off?
Danny: Not if we can help it.

The Blue Templar [1.22]Edit

Frank: Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. :Henry: Raymond Chandler?
Frank: (nods) His definition of a hero.

Frank: We all die son, it's just a question of when.

Season 2Edit

Critical Condition [2.03]Edit

Danny: Never date a girl with a gun.

Thanksgiving [2.08]Edit

Jacob: I am innocent.
Erin: I am an assistant district attorney for the city of New York. Do you know how many times a day I hear those three words.

Leap of Faith [2.12]Edit

Frank: My mother was a saint. My wife was a saint especially by the time she was chasing four kids under ten around the house.

Frank: The only thing harder than being a cop is being married to one.

Parenthood [2.13]Edit

Jackie: You guys get together every week to eat and fight. You sure you're not Italian?
Danny: Nope Irish. We just drink a little more.

The Life We Chose [2.14]Edit

Frank: Courage is not the absence of fear it is the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

Front Page News [3.11]Edit

Frank: There's no mistake you can make that I already haven't been there, done that.

No Regrets [3.18]Edit

[Frank delivers a press conference on the NYPD sweep of the Bitterman Projects]]
Frank Reagan: At 0600 hours this morning a joint task force consisting of the Detective Bureau, the Narcotics Division....[police cars screech to a halt on the street. Hundreds of uniformed and ESU officers rush into the Bitterman Projects in formation] ....ESU, the Warrant Squad, the Gang Division and patrol - armed with warrants for arrests on charges including conspiracy to murder in the cases of Police Officer Vincent Cruz and Mayor Carter Poole, narcotics possession with intent to distribute, enterprise corruption....[A gangbanger is shown running down a stairwell, only to run into an ESU team coming up the stairs]....racketeering and a number of other serious charges-- conducted a sweep of the Bitterman Housing Projects....[An ESU team led by Danny and Baez raids Santana's unit, handcuffing Santana and one of his mistresses]... arresting 47 members and associates of the Los Lordes criminal organization, including their head. [Police officers escort several groups of Los Lordes members out of the buildings, shackled to each other] These arrests were made with information given by the residents of the Bitterman Projects, at their own risk, with no promise of reward, other than full NYPD cooperation in restoring law and order to their community. [Jamie and Sgt. Renzulli shake hands with Hector Santiago's father] I would like to note that this operation was carried out with the full input, and by design of, Mayor Carter Poole, with the explicit intent of conducting the investigations and arrests in such a manner as to build trust between the NYPD and the Bitterman community-- a trust that has been absent, on both sides, for far too long. [Danny and Baez load Santana into the back of a squad car]

Maria Baez: You were spotted in the area a few hours before the explosion.
Kevin Conklin: That rat's nest is on my way to work.
Maria Baez: You've got quite a mouth on you, Kevin.
Kevin Conklin: (smirks) You know, I got a place upstairs that's a real mess. You got your mop and bucket in the car, chiquita? (grins insolently; Maria gives Danny a look)
Maria Baez: (steps forward and quickly frisks Conklin) We have Department guidelines for dealing with verbally abusive subjects. We're supposed to find a way to make a connection.

[Suddenly, she grabs the front of his jacket and knees him in the groin, hard)

(Mr. Kyle unlocks and opens the door Danny enters as music is playing loudly)
Danny: Mrs. Cairo? Detective Reagan. (shuts off music) Just want to ask you a few questions.
Mrs. Cairo: You have no right! (throws glass vase with flowers at Danny)
Danny: Hey! Hey! I'm a detective!
Mrs. Cairo: So, my husband had me followed again?! Well, you tell him he's wasting his time.

Danny Yeah, I'm okay. You missed. Is anybody else in that bedroom?
Mrs. Cairo: No
Danny: How about you-- are you all right?
Mrs. Cairo: I'm not supposed to be on my feet. I just had my boobs, ass and tummy done.
Danny: Oh.
Mrs. Cairo: And I had nothing to do with that damn car going missing. Assuming that's why you're here.

Hold Outs [6.09]Edit

Jamie: Here, have a seat. You know when we add these four goons to the three my partner and I locked up the other day, it's like damn near arrested half your gang. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, huh?
Rainey: What?
Jamie: Just saying. Not a great week for you as boss, but maybe there's something you can do to fix that.
Rainey: Here we go, hmm? Time for Let's Make a Deal. Guess what? Rainey don't deal.
Jamie: You could save you and your boys a lot of jail time if you come clean about what's really going on.
Rainey: You know what, man? I don't even, like, understand a single thing you saying.
Jamie: Sure you do. You're smarter than you play. Why would you and your crew hit the same block six times in a month?
Rainey: I ain't saying nothing.
Jamie: If someone else is behind this, maybe we could trade up Get you and your crew a year, maybe just probation.
Rainey: You know what, man? You're right. I am smart. Smart enough to know that the most we gonna get is six months, probably three if we wear ties to court. (chuckles)
Jamie: Yeah, you're right, except there's this little known section of the penal law that I discovered when I was at law school. It's called "enterprise corruption.
Rainey: Hmm.
Jamie: I won't bore you with the details, but basically what it says is, since you've repeated the same crime multiple times, minimum for you is five years upstate.
Rainey: Please. (laughing) You ain't go to no law school. You just a cop.
Jamie pulls out his Harvard law school ID Card and places it on the desk
Jamie: (handcuffs rattling) Let's go.

Erin: Thanks for coming down. Please, have a seat.
Louise: You know, uh, I've been thinking about what you said about what hand Granderson used and all. I think I was right the first time. He reached in with his right hand, and he shot Victor with his left.
Erin: Great. That's great. That's very helpful. Can you tell me who Richard Hart is?
Louise: What?
Erin: Who is Richard Hart?
Louise: I don't I don't know anyone by that name.
Erin: That's interesting. Because you make quite a few phone calls to him.
Louise: Okay, I know him, but he's just a friend.
Erin: Yeah. I think he's your boyfriend. And for quite some time, based on those phone records.
Louise: Oh, God. Okay. Yes, he's someone I've been involved with. Look, I'm not proud of it.
Erin: Which is why you never told this office or the police?
Louise: I knew how it would come across. Husband is shot dead and wife is having an affair. I mean, we all know what that would look like.
Erin: Like you had your husband killed so you can start a new life.
Louise: That is not what happened.
Erin: I think it is.
Louise: Okay. I think I need a lawyer.
Erin: Yeah.That's probably a good idea. But the truth is I think it's a little late for that.
Louise: Oh, no.
Erin: Yeah, bad move getting involved with a two-time felon. See, one more felony conviction and Richie goes away for life. Unless he cooperates.
Louise: Richie loves me. He wouldn't say a thing.
Erin: Yeah. He said everything. About how you two carried out the murder of your beloved Victor, as well as killing Robin Dunn, the only eyewitness that could contradict your testimony.
Louise: (gasping) Wait. Wait. This was all Richie's idea. I will tell you anything you need to know.
Erin: Yeah. He thought you might say that. Which is why he was smart enough to record all your phone conversations. You're under arrest.

Cursed [6.12]Edit

Danny: Did you forget how to dial a phone, Ronnie?
Ronnie: I didn't know anyone was gonna do anything last night. Last time I saw those guys, Sal was telling us all to get out.
Danny: Right, and you all just went home and watched The Bachelorette, is that it?

Season 7Edit

Personal Business [7.8]Edit

Eddie: I know, I know, we need to stop meeting like this. (she enters, Jaime looks bewildered) So, uh, I think we need to clear the air.
Jaime: Yeah.
Eddie: I've been thinking about what you- you said about me being... jealous of Tara.
Jaime: I shouldn't have said that, I'm sorry-
Eddie: Yeah, well- the thing is, it's true.
Jaime:... What are you talking about?
Eddie: I was. Jealous of Tara. Just like I'm jealous every time you go on a date with somebody, every time you tell me how some girl is hot.
Jaime:... Eddie-
Eddie: Could you please not talk? This is, you know, this is really hard, so just let me get it off my chest.
Jaime: Okay.
Eddie: (takes a deep breath)... I have feelings for you. I have for a long time. (pause, Jaime stares at her) There, I said it. I do everything I can to make them go away. Because, I mean, you're not even close to my type, and you are a complete Boy Scout, and you make me crazy most of the time. You're also... the best person I think I've ever met. (starting to tear up) And you're the best friend I've ever had.
Jaime: Look, I-
Eddie: Is that you talking?!
Jaime: Sorry.
Eddie:... I know that you're my partner, and I don't want to do anything to screw that up. I just, I needed... to tell you that you're so much more than that. And if I didn't tell you, it was gonna get really weird.
Jaime: (teasingly) 'Cause this doesn't make things weird at all. (Eddie punches him in the arm, he laughs and raises his hands defensively) I'm kidding, I'm kidding! (pause) Cards on the table? I have feelings for you, too. I think you know that. But, we've been down that road before, and it's a bad idea for... a lot of reasons.
Eddie: I know.
Jaime: It can really cloud your judgement, and... totally screw up a partnership.
Eddie: Yeah- totally. I just, you know- I just wanted to be honest. (Jaime nods) Are we good?
Jaime: Definitely.
[Eddie walks past him, pauses, then turns back and kisses him; Jaime returns the kiss and they embrace for a moment]
Eddie:... Good talk. (swats him teasingly) See you tomorrow.

The Thin Blue Line [7.22]Edit

[Mayor Carter Poole tells Frank he intends to resign]

Frank Reagan:...Is there anything I can say?
Carter Poole: (smiles)... You can give me your word. That you'll be just as hard on my successor, as you were on me.
Frank Reagan:... You have my word. (they shake hands) Thank you, Mr. Mayor.
Carter Poole: Thank you, Commissioner.

Frank: Oh
Henry: But you know that you can't work together anymore.
Jamie: Well, that's what we thought, too, Pop.
Henry: You thought
Eddie: Well, assumed.
Jamie: But I looked it up. And there's nothing in the Patrol Guide-- or any of the books, for that matter-- says married cops can't be partners on the job.
Henry: Nowhere
Jamie: No
Henry: Wow
Jamie: But I knew that you and Dad would be for that rule, even if it wasn't actually a rule.
Frank: But the rule does make enormous sense.
Nicky: Why?
Frank: Well, a couple partnered together on the job can create conflicts.
Eddie: Yes but
Frank: But
Jamie: Hear us out? Consider if two people willing to swear the following to each other could still be good partners on the job.
Danny: Swear the following what?
Eddie: Vows that we wrote to each other
Danny: You wrote vows already? - Okay.
Jamie: Turns out she's been working on 'em for a while, so I just
Eddie: Turns out so has he.

Eddie: I'll earn your respect, and pay you respect every day we have.
Jamie: I'll be your scout, your night watchman, your cavalry.
Eddie: Your medic, your chaplain in our army of two.
Jamie: No retreat, no surrender.
Eddie: No retreat, no surrender. [chuckles]
Jamie: You can count on me.
Eddie: And you can count on me.
Frank: Welcome to our family, Eddie.
Eddie: Thank you. Dad.
