“Sam, we’re acting like teenagers.” -McNally

“And that’s a bad thing?” -Swarek

“Hey, Casanova, that’s her face not your lunch. get a room!” -Peck talking to civilians

“The answer is no, I won’t do yoga with you.” -Swarek

“I only asked you about that once! Okay, maybe twice.” -McNally


I really liked this episode, the storyline keeps getting better, and this is only the second episode.  Epstein and his girlfriend are really cute together which is great, being he had a thing for Peck.  McNally and Swarek are finally talking about a real relationship, she deserves much better than Luke treated her in the previous season. I don’t know about Epstein joining S.W.A.T…Shaw is right to doubt his capabilities. He seems too good-natured for S.W.A.T. I sense the writers maybe putting Diaz and Nash together, rather than Nash and Detective Barber. I personally think that Diaz is better for her, but that’s just me. Don’t really know about the new Collins guy, he seems real. We’ll see where he goes in this season.  Williams and Best are developing a relationship, even though he was only supposed to be a sperm donor.  Again, loved this ep!
