- John Sullivan: You on the job? Jack Shepard: Long time ago. Do I know you? John Sullivan: Do I look familiar? Jack Shepard: No. What house you work? John Sullivan: 7-4 homicide. Jack Shepard: Hot shot. John Sullivan: No, just working the job. As a matter of fact, I caught a case that goes back to your day. One of the Nightingale murders. Jack Shepard: No kidding. John Sullivan: No. Missing teenager, disappeared back in '68. Found her bones last week buried out by some old diner by Dyckman Street. Mary Finelli. Yeah, talk about dumb luck. The odds of anyone finding that 30 years later and the chance of hitting a dental? Forget about it. The best part is, she's the first victim. She knew the killer, so I bet those old bones are gonna do a lot of talking. Not for nothing, the past is a funny thing. We all have skeletons in the closet, we just don't know when they're gonna pop up and bite us in the ass. Huh, Jack? You changed your MO, 'cause if they knew your mother was the Nightingale, they would have looked at the family. They would have looked at you. Jack Shepard: What are you looking at? John Sullivan: Stealing your life away. You went down 30 years ago, pal. You just don't know it yet.
John: I want you to remember this word, okay? It's kind of like a code word: Yahoo. Can you remember that?
John: Shoulda, woulda, coulda, pal.
Frank: I'm still here, Chief.
John Sullivan: You gotta be more careful, cause I can't lose you again. Not like that. Frank Sullivan: You won't John. You won't. I swear to God, no matter what. You got it? You hear me? John Sullivan: I hear you. Frank Sullivan: So how old are you? John Sullivan: I'm 36. Frank Sullivan: 36. You're all grown up. You must be married and everything. John Sullivan: No, I'm not married. Frank Sullivan: What? Too busy playing ball? John Sullivan: It didn't work out. I gave it up. Frank Sullivan: What happened? John Sullivan: I blew my arm out senior year. Didn't have a shot. Frank Sullivan: Oh, I'm sorry Johnny. I know that had to hurt. John Sullivan: Thanks. Frank Sullivan: So what did ya wind up doing? You join the department? John Sullivan: Actually I went the other way. I'm a cop. Frank Sullivan: [laughing] What? You're 3rd generation fire fighter. Come on I thought you were gonna grow out of that cop thing. John Sullivan: Well you got Satch to thank for that one. Frank Sullivan: You're kidding me huh. Satch? He was always crazy about you ever since you were born. You're still my little chief, right? John Sullivan: Yeah, I'm trying to be. I'm trying.
