Rescue Me: Karate

Tommy has a stand-off with a wise-ass NYPD hockey player that leads to another one of his emotional breakdowns in the locker room.

Meanwhile, Lou finally gets his life's second wind and decides to get off his dead ass and not let what happened to him and Candi destroy his life. Also Franco finds himself with a woman who might seem like someone with whom he could have a serious relationship with.

Episode Quotes
Tommy: I don't even know that many black people. I mean, maybe a total of five - two of those are Reggie Jackson and Barry Bonds, who I hate by the way.

(About survivors guilt.)
Collins: Eventually, I got a handle on it on my own.
Tommy: How?
Collins: Booze.
Tommy: Booze.
Collins: Ya, I drank a lot. I still do. I mean, I don't drink on the job or anything. I'm not drunk right now, but I will be pretty soon, like right after this. 12 beers, 6 shots of tequila, that'll pretty much knock it right out of your system.

Lou: I was sitting here. I was stuffing my face. I was reading the paper. I'm watching TV. I'm feeling miserable about myself, ya know,... Wednesday.

Chaplain: Nice rack, huh?

Chris: Hey, dude, I'm a guy. You're a guy. We both know guys screw around, but you told me you were a one guy guy.
Probie: I am. That's why I'm screwing around with a woman.

Probie: Oh shit, the 5 horse lost?
Franco: No, we all lost.
Chief: What'd you say, the 5 horse?
Probie: Ya, it's what you told me to bet, right?
Chief: Shit, you stupid son of a bitch.... I love ya. (Kisses Probie on the cheek.)
Lou: Hey Chief, should we leave the room?
Chief: He bet the wrong horse, but the horse that he bet won. This thing's worth fifteen grand. We're in boys.
