Ladder 49 quotes

Chief Kennedy: People are always asking me how is it that firefighters run into a burning building when everyone else is running out. Courage is the answer.

Lenny Richter: I'm getting too old for this sh**.

Jack Morrison: There's something I wanted to talk to you about, Cap. I was thinking of transferring to the truck.
Chief Kennedy: Oh, geez. What the hell do you want to do that for? You're an engine man. Truck's a whole different thing. No water between you and the fire, no hose to lead you out if you get lost in the smoke. Not a good idea.
Jack Morrison: I know that, Cap. And I love being on the pipe, but... I want this, Mike.
Chief Kennedy: Ok. We'll give it a try. But you gotta tell me something. If this isn't for you, you tell me right away. Promise?
Jack Morrison: Yes, sir.

Chief Kennedy: It's never an easy thing, saying goodbye to a brother firefighter, it's not. And this time, particularly is difficult for me because I watched Jack grow into a, well, into one of the finest firefighters I've ever known. He joined this department because he wanted to help people, who knows how many homes are still standing because Jack was there or how many lives were spared. He gave his life for that cause. We'll never forget you Jack. And we're better for having known you. But I make you this one promise, tomorrow when that bell rings, we will be back on the truck, because you were the bravest of the brave. People are always asking me, how is it that firefighters run into a burning building when everyone else is running out? Well, Jack, you answered that question by saving another man's life. Your courage is the answer. And today we will be as brave as you, by not mourning you, but by celebrating your life. So I'd like everyone to stand up and celebrate the life of Jack Morrison.

Linda Morrison: So, you guys usually pick up girls in the supermarket? For fun, or...?
Jack Morrison: Usually I just throw them over my shoulder and carry them down a ladder.
Linda Morrison: (smiles) Sort of a tarzan/jane thing?

Linda Morrison: Hi, I've heard alot about you!
Chief Kennedy: Yeah?
Linda Morrison: Yeah; you wear really sexy boxers, right? With the red love hearts on them?... little too tight?

Jack Morrison: (Latched onto a frantic man while hanging from a rope) Calm down! Sir - you need to calm down! I swear to God I'll drop you!
