Tate warning Bayleaf about sexist remarks en route to the garage fire

Tate: Oi!

Vaseline doesn't want to go to Ethnic's leaving banquet

Vaseline: I'll bring bleedin' sandwiches!
Bayleaf: You've had three wives and 300 fiancees and not one of them has ever so much as buttered you a slice of bread!

Josie introduces herself in the dorm

Josie: Okay here we go. 1) I'm not a dyke 2) I'm not a woman's libber 3) I'm not a nymphomaniac and 4) I'm not an alien from outer space. I'm in the job cause I like it. I'm not clever enough to be a nurse or secretary, but two days and two nights a week, I'm bloody good at fighting fires. The rest of the time, I do stuff other women do. Been married for five months, I've been in the Brigade for just over a year. I've been to hundreds of shouts. So you can all behave exactly as normal, whether on shouts, in the station or in your pits. There's only one difference between you and me and that's no doubt what you're holding in your hands under your blankets, so that's only a little difference, ain't it? And sod all to do with putting out fires, unless you piss on them. Good night.

[Voice on the other end can be heard shouting at him] about time... ...who was that anyway
Vaseline: It's just Bayleaf... Well if you only called me up to slag me off...
[Bayleaf winds up a bell and holds it near the phone]
Vaseline: Sorry love, bell's gone down. There’s a shout. Coming Sir! [hangs up]
Bayleaf: Which Marion was it?
Vaseline: Never said.

Vaseline: It wasn't my fault
Charisma: Cat killer
Josie: Butcher
Malcolm: Certainly the crudest form of vivisection!
Vaseline: I don't believe this! How was I supposed to know?! It was obviously an act of suicide. It's a suicidal cat, why else was it on the roof? That was probably the tenth try they're only allotted nine. It's definitely suicide!

Vaseline reveals why his boots ignited

Vaseline: It was sodium chlorate
Hallam: Sodium Chlorate!?
Vaseline: Yeah I must've spilt some on me boots without realising.

Vaseline: well yeah but...oh...it won't affect my sick pay will it Guv?

Kevin: Donna Donna. That's her Christian name and her surname is it?

Tate lectures John in the office after the buried incident

Tate: Oh you're real Station Officer material you are John. Only 6 ETs in the entire area covered by the London Brigade. That's 620 square miles and over 7 and half million people. And you call out the whole cavalry on the say so of a woman who the ADO informs me had so much meths in her bloodstream that if you struck a match by her she'd ignite!... ...Well what are you waiting for? Queens award for cock ups!

Bayleaf notices Jaffa's poster seeking volunteers to box for the Brigade

Bayleaf: Another one of your dead or alive posters is it Jaffa? Anyone who is not actually buried, who has four limbs, two eyes and a nose is wanted for use as a punchbag by the LFB Boxing Club. [imitating Frank Bruno] You know what I mean Harry!

Charisma caught in a chemical explosion

Tate: QUICK! Get those hose lines in there! Protect him with spray! Pull him out! Bayleaf! For god's sake pull him out!

Bayleaf and Josie have crossed wires about the last shout

Bayleaf: How did it go?
Josie: How did what go?
Bayleaf: The shout.
Josie: Oh, we helped rescue some bird.
Bayleaf: Oh, let me guess, broken love affair, right?
Josie: What?
Bayleaf: Well, nine times out of ten that's what it is, with birds.
Josie: What are you talking about?!
Bayleaf: Women jumpers.

Bayleaf: What? You mean like a transvestite?!
Josie: No, I mean like a parrot!
Bayleaf: Can we start this conversation again?!

Josie enters the dorm soaking wet after the lads tampered with her toilet

Vaseline: Aw what's up Jose? You look a bit flushed!

Sicknote and Charisma

Charisma: I step out for five minutes to get this. I come back, I go to the front room and I thought hang on, "you're in the wrong house". You've been moving the furniture!
Sicknote: It's a sort of therapy.
Charisma: It's a sort of lunacy!

Charisma complaining about Sicknote to Tate

Charisma: If he's not moving things about, he's grinding his teeth. If he's not grinding his teeth, he's worrying that he's getting another ulcer. If he's not worrying he's getting another ulcer, he's waking me up at three o'clock in the morning to tell me his heart's stopped!
Sicknote: My heart did stop! It stopped for several seconds, I had to get out of bed and run on the spot to get it going again! I think that's what's given me this rash!

Malcolm: Ah, Firewoman Ingham. And how dare one ask is your love life?
Josie: Much the same as yours I would imagine, restricted to the odd wet dream!

Tate: That bloke's half a pork pie short of a picnic you know that!

Bulstrode: If I had meant pretend to remove the roof, I WOULD HAVE SAID PRETEND TO REMOVE THE ROOF!
Malcolm: Remove the roof!

Tate learns from Blue Watch about Sandra Hallam finding lipstick on John's y-fronts

Malcolm: Guv. When our Sub was at college it seems he had a carnal relationship with a certain lady who left telltale lipstick marks on some rather intimate items of his apparel.
Hallam: It had nothing to do with no woman guv; Duffy interfered with my underwear!

Blue Watch and Red Watch sing to John Hallam

Have you seen the Y-front man, the Y-front man, the Y-front man? Have you seen the Y-front man with lipstick on his drawers?
There's lipstick all over my Y-fronts
The wife's in a terrible tiz
There's lipstick all over my Y-fronts
Cos I give a woman the biz!

Technique is summoned to Brigade HQ to account for his long spells off duty due to sickness

Officer: Are you sitting comfortably?
Technique: Well as comfortable as I ever hope to be sir.
Officer: Then I'll begin. Before the back you were off sick for five weeks with a frozen shoulder. What is a frozen shoulder?
Technique: It's when you cant feel it sir.
Officer: So you don't know if it's frozen or not? Before that there was three weeks with blurred vision.
Technique: Er I fell on my head.
Officer: Ten weeks with a torn ligament.
Technique: Yeah I tripped over a hose.
Officer: And at the end of last year you were off with a suspected strangulated colon.
Technique: Ye-
Officer: I know what strangulated means, and I know what a colon is! It's what you're trying to pull over my eyes and not just for the last couple of years. Fireman Pagnall you have a record of sickness and incapacitation stretching back over the last five years. Which leads me to believe, considering you're built like a brick carsey, that you have been swinging the lead.

Tate frustrated at acting up

Tate: So there we are John. By decree of the Area Commander, i’m about to be cost adrift on the inhospitable stormy sea of troubles that is our ground, with nothing to keep me company except a Maestro and a pager!

John unwittingly gives Bayleaf transfer papers

Hallam: There you are Mike.
Bayleaf: Cheers John.
Tate: What was that you give him!?
Hallam: Pad of form tens.
Tate: WHAT!?
Hallam: Well he was in here earlier having a man to man about his domestic problems. He reckon they’d be sold if he’d transferred to Croyden. So i dug him out a pad of form tens.
Tate: i never thought i’d hear myself say this to you John, but you are a PILLOCK!

Station Officer Tate catches Malcolm eating in the appliance

Sicknote is moaning about being served dumplings for lunch

Tate: PUT A SOCK IN IT WILL YOU SICKNOTE!

Sicknote: There's nothing wrong with my feet!
Kevin: No, it's just where you put them!

Series 4[]

Nick reminds Bayleaf how to behave when on duty

Nick: Just to refresh your memory. If a member of the public walks in off the street you address him as "Sir". If he asks you for the officer in charge, you take him to the officer. If you point and say "up there, mate", and he turns out to be your new Guvnor, you're going to look very stupid when you find out!

Kevin insults Nick, and gets punched

Kevin: Hey Zorba! Kiss my arse!
[Nick punches him]
(The following episode)
Nick: In Cyprus an insult like that's a hanging offence!

The pump crew travel to Kent on standby

Sicknote: Yes take a look at it while it’s still here. One of the few remaining areas on the globe that hasn't been entirely devastated by the fossil fuel industry, chemical companies effluence, genocide of the rainforests, naked avarice in the world money markets, wars and gay anti-vivisectionists!
Kate: Gay what?!
George: Give us a break Sicknote!
Hallam: Ugh, it’s not on the Geograph here
George: What aint?
Hallam: The area where the bloody fire station is. It’s off the map
Sicknote: Charming!
Hallam: Well i’m not radioing the Kent Fire Brigade to tell them that the London Fire Brigades lost it’s way. No chance!
Kate: What’s this standby about Guv?
Hallam: I don’t know!
Sicknote: What we have here is a serious lack of communication

Recall in a situation

Recall: I need the toilet!
Nick: What?
Recall: I need to take a piss!... ...ahhh, that’s another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!

Series 5[]

In Nick's office after they stole the Borough Street Station Officer's dentures

Malcolm: We just got our teeth into it!
Nick: Now that's the last time for you Cross. One more stunt, one more piece of idiocy and you wont just be disciplined you’ll be KICKED OUT!... ...Got a smart arse remark for that!?
Malcolm: No Guv.
Nick: What a pity. Anyone else?

Maggie: Ere George, your mother-in-law was here earlier.
George: She weren't on fire was she?!

Bulstrode's Phonecall

Hallam: Echo 44 Blackwall?... ...Area Commander Bulstrode for you Guv
Nick Georgiadis: About this?... ...How'd he sound?
Hallam: Well hopping mad would be a severe understatement!

Bulstrode's rebuke

Bulstrode: What the hell possessed you, Station Officer Georgiadis!? Have you gone totally loco!? Are you utterly out of your tiny mind!?
Nick: Sir I can’t emphasise this too strongly, I did not give that interview! He came round to the station to talk about the speech Id given at the Chamber Of Commerce Dinner.
Bulstrode: Did you say any of this in that speech?
Nick: Well some of it yes, but I didn’t go into such lurid detail! And my chief aim in the speech was to draw attention to the fact as fire as fire safety’s concerned, the modern motor vehicles is a death trap.
Bulstrode: That’s got nothing to do with you! It’s not up to you to get off your hind legs and spite about the construction of the bloody modern motor vehicle! YOU WERE IN UNIFORM! You were given permission to make a speech about possible changes in fire cover with regard to Blackwall. BRIGADE ORDERS ARE SPECIFIC IN THAT RESPECT. YOU ARE IN CONTRAVENTION OF BRIGADE ORDERS! You’re about LFB business, you had no right to speak off your own bat.
Nick: Sir-
Bulstrode: You know what the Brigade is doing about the escalation in numbers of deaths in car fires?
Nick: Sir I don’t.
Bulstrode: Well you may rest assured there are ongoing dialogue with the motor industry. SO YOU CAN GO ON DOING WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING YOUR DUTY! NOT RIDING HOLLYHORSES AND PLASTERING YOURSELF ABOUT THE NEWSPAPERS!

George: You talk enough of it!

Scase: I beg your pardon, sir?
Bulstrode: No need to beg my pardon, I can't wait to see the back of you! If you're the vision of the future Scase, I don't want to be here to witness it personally. You could make a beehive look like a bunch of wandering hippies with your managerial mania!

Hallam: Yeah well so will your work pattern in a minute cause I’ll send you home! Either you’re fit for duty or you’re not! You can't bring this in here! This is a fire engine not a bloody invalid carriage! Now whatever this extraneous intrusion is you'd better get it sorted and get a good night's kip or you'll be out: you and your wooden balls!
Kevin: Hey, Sicknote, this extraneous intrusion that's interrupting your sleep patterns. It's not Jean is it?!

A stupid dangerous idiot. Well your parents are paying for that idiot. Because they pay us you see, that's how it works. Your mum, your dad, your sister I wonder where they all are now eh? Maybe they’re in danger, maybe they’re in a fire, maybe they’re in a car crash, maybe they’re trapped somewhere and they need help. Where are we? We’re out wasting time! For an idiot!
