- Jenn: Why not look the old fashioned way? Pound the pavement.
- Lieutenant: Till we find these guys you wanna lay low, ride the desk for a while?
- Eddie: You mean hide? That's not my style.
- Lieutenant: I know. But if these are the guys that hit Lund, you probably realize that they were aiming for you as payback for Donell.
- Eddie: I'm not letting these fools put me behind a desk.

- Eddie: His coming of age party.
- Kevin: I don't get it, so it's like a bar mitzvah… but with soul music.
- Eddie: Tay's turning 13 this weekend, he's coming of age. What's not to get?
- Kevin: And you're gonna get him a hooker.
- Eddie: What the hell's wrong with you?
- Kevin: Nothing's wrong with me, I'm not the one throwing my son a cotillion.
The "F" Word (1.13) 
- Taylor: Is he crazy?
- Lizzie: It wasn't his idea to kidnap me. It was his partner's.
- Taylor: You can't write to him Lizzie. I mean do you want us to be homeless? I mean if Dad finds out that Boa wrote you and you wrote him back, Dad will kill him, Lizzie. Then Dad will go to jail, Mom will be mad, we'll be sad, we'll end up on the streets broke and homeless because of you.
- Cassie: I can't believe that my dad is letting me go out with you. What did you say to him?
- Charles: Stuff men say to each other. But the important thing is what I want to tell you. Cassie, sex isn't really a big deal to me right now. (pause) Well, maybe a medium deal. The important thing is that I love you and I want you to feel comfortable with me.
- Cassie: I am and I've always been comfortable with you.
- Khan: (to Eddie) You'll never rest easy, as long as I'm alive.
- Reverend Hammond: (to Eddie) One thing about the real Lincoln Heights, we look out for our own.

- Cassie: You wanna know why I'm by myself? The buses aren't running, there's people all in the streets, I lost my boyfriend. I've been waiting an hour-and-a-half for him to pick me up! People are throwing bottles everywhere, this city's going crazy! Now you come to hassle me?! You want something from me? Well, come get it, papi, otherwise back off!
Peacemaker (2.2)

- Eddie: What did you say? (to Cassie) What in the hell's going on? You're home late; your sister's talking back.
- Cassie: Don't look at me, Tay's the one wearing makeup.
- Lizzie: (about Boa) He says that my letters are what's keeping him alive. I know I should listen to what my dad says, but if all it takes is a letter to help someone, isn't it wrong not to write it?
Grown Folks Business (2.3) 
- Kevin: What the hell kind of a name is "Sage"?
- Eddie: It beats "Parsley".

- Eddie: Remember when we used to be especially bad on Saturday mornings?
The Old Man and the G (2.4) 
- Jarone: (voice over) In every war there are weapons: Gats, nines, hate, intimidation. Don't matter who you are, everybody's strappin'. But sometimes, some days, it goes the other way, and the weapons are hope, trust and understanding. Maybe those are the weapons that can win the war, or maybe it ain't supposed to be won at all. Maybe the point is to keep on going, keep on fighting, and never, ever, give up.
- Eddie: I'm in kind of a bind here. I made Jarone's family a promise, if you press charges I won't be able to keep that promise.
- Jake: That boy needs to pay for what he's done.
- Eddie: I hear ya, but some bad guys are after Jarone connected guys. He goes into the system now, he may not come out alive. See how it goes. If it doesn't work out, press charges. Make him pay his debt to society.
- Jake: To hell with society, he can pay his debt to me.
- Eddie: (about Jarone) How can I help him if I don't give him the benefit of the doubt?
- Kevin: Well, you're a better man than me.
- Eddie: And this surprises you?
The Feeling that We Have (2.5) 
- Cassie: (to Charles) Are you breaking up with me? (Charles looks away) Are you?
- Charles: Yes.
- Cassie: Don't you love me anymore?
- Charles: It doesn't matter...
- Cassie: It does, Charles, it matters to me. Did you ever love me?
- Charles: I did, and I still do.
- Cassie: Well why won't you fight for us?!
- Charles: 'Cause it won't work. This is for the best.
- Cassie: For who, Charles? Don't say it's for me, because it's not. You're doing this for you! (turns and runs out)
- Jenn: (to Lizzie about The Wiz) You want me to watch it with you? I know the words to the songs.
- Lizzie: Uh no thanks, Mom, I've heard you sing. You're no Diana Ross.
The Cost of A T-Shirt (2.6) 
- Eddie: Baby, I don't want you to quit your job.
- Jenn: But you don't want me to have that job, either.
- Eddie: That's because I can't let you go to work without worrying you'll get stuck by a needle, or that some sick guy in the waiting room is not gonna get violent on you. So I need your help. I need you to tell me how you get through the day, knowing the dangers I come across. Tell me, so I can do it for you.
No Way Back (2.7) 
- Sage: (spills coffee on purpose) Oh! Oops! Sorry. Guess you might wanna mop that up.
- Cassie: (looks at Sage's top) Was that Charles' shirt?

- Lizzie: And the toast is ready, and the coffee's hot.
- Eddie: Okay, what'd you guys do with our kids?

Eye for An Eye (2.8) 
- Eddie: I'm just trying to keep you safe.

- Eddie: Jenn, you can't fix every broken wing.
- Jenn: Neither can you, but you haven't stopped trying.
- Lund (to Charles): So what's the deal? You got some kind of a twisted fetish for cops' daughters?
- Charles: No! Sage is cool, we're just hanging out.
- Lund: Let's keep it that way; Sage has got enough problems.
- Charles: Mr. Lund, I'm a good guy. You don't need to worry about me hurting your daughter.
- Lund: It's not her I'm worried about. Sage eats good guys for breakfast.
- Sage (to Charles): What do I have to do for you to dedicate a song to me?
Out With A Bang (2.9) 
- Sage: Hey girls, I know it's very ghetto-chic to gang up on me, but I gotta get to class.
- Ta'Wanda: Ghetto what?? Bitch, I know you did not just call me ghetto!
- Ta'wanda: So, What's up girl? You and Charles back together again?
- Cassie: (slowing down) No.
- Ta'Wanda: 'Cause it kinda looked that way after he was doing all that singing to you last week.
- Cassie: Charles and I are not back together. He's with Sage now.
- Ta'wanda: He was better with you than that skinny old ho. (Cassie giggles)
- Ta'wanda: (sees her boyfriend take number from Sage) Oh, hell no! (to Sage) What the hell do you think you're doing, chattin' up my man?
- Sage: (smirks) Looks like your man's thinking 'bout trading up.
- Ta'wanda: Girl, it's no wonder white boy sang his little love song to Cassie instead of you. You're just plain old white trash.
- Cassie: Charles, you broke up with me. Then you go and buy my painting now you're singing to me in public? Why are you playing games with me?
- Charles: I'm not playing games with you, Cassie. I'm sorry. It's just been harder for me to turn it off than I expected. You meant a lot to me, you still do.
- Cassie: Charles, it's hard for me too, but you have to stop.
- Charles: I never meant to cause you any pain especially now that you're with Luc. You are with Luc, aren't you?
- Cassie: (sighs) Maybe it'd be easier if we just stayed away from each other. (walks away)
- Charles: I'll try. (slams his locker)
The Vision (2.10) 
- Charles: (about the mural) I hope you finish it. Cassie, you have to do the stuff that matters to you; you never know when something's gonna happen.
- Taylor: (bumps into Desmond) Oh! Sorry.
- Desmond: Yeah, you better be, bitch!
- Taylor: Don't call me that! I said I was sorry. (looks at another Shiloh member) What you want from me, a cookie?!
- Eddie: (about Cassie's mural) But what kind of parents would we be if we let her do this and she gets hurt?
- Jenn: And what kind of hypocrites are we if we don't help her? And to be honest, I don't think we can stop her.
- Eddie: Oh. Oh, I can stop her.
