Capt. Thomas Fuller Quotes:

  • [about Hondo's S.W.A.T. selection]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Sanchez is a woman and Street, well he's on my shit list

    Hondo: Hey! I'm on your shit list too and I'm the team captain.

  • Hondo: 10-David, this is 70-David.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: 70-David, where the hell are you?

    Hondo: We are somewhere around Sixth and Trenton. We lost communication in the tunnels. Where's our backup?

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: [**POSSIBLE SPOILER**] Everything I have is going to Hawthorne Airport. That's where your friends Gamble and T.J. McCabe are headed.

    Hondo: That's the other side of town! Send a couple units to pick us up.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: PICK YOU UP? For all I know you're in on this! I got a good mind to bring you in!

    Hondo: [to Street, Sanchez, and Deke] Like hell. Come on, let's go.

  • Capt. Thomas Fuller: Sometimes doing the right thing isn't doing the right thing.

    Sgt. Howard: What the hell is that supposed mean?

  • Capt. Thomas Fuller: Nice job.

    Hondo: Don't sound so happy.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Still got a problem. He's still here.

    [Gestures towards Alex Montel]

    Chris: Road trip?

    Street: [Beaten up from the fight with Gamble] Road trip.

  • Velasquez: We have ID'd those suspects.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Great! Who are they?

    Velasquez: Former officer Gamble and Officer T.J. McCabe.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Gamble, as in Street's ex-partner, Gamble?

    Velasquez: Roger.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: We have got two SWAT-trained guys leading this attack. How do we know the rest of the team isn't in on it?

    Velasquez: Because I can vouch for Hondo.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: You wanna bet 100 million dollars on that?

  • Brian Gamble: [getting chewed out by Fuller for his stunt at the bank] That woman is alive because of what we did!

    Brian Gamble: C'mon Fuller we get...

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: [Interrupting] That's *Captain* Fuller.

    Velasquez: Captain. They're two of our best officers.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Well I'm not sticking them back in the field after a stunt like that.

    Brian Gamble: [Becoming angry] Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know that saving lives was goddamn stunt!

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Hey, you've got a big mouth, and apparently you're quick on the trigger, and *that* is why your ass is in a sling!

    Velasquez: Captain Fuller, if you're really gonna put them off SWAT at least keep them in the division. Give'em a shot at getting back.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: [pause] Fine, stick'em in the gun cage. Get'em out of my sight.

  • Brian Gamble: [Mumbling under his breath to Street] This is total bullshit.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: What?

    Brian Gamble: [Raising his voice to Fuller] I said this is bullshit.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Really.

    Brian Gamble: Yeah, really.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: You should consider yourself lucky Lieutenant Velazquez is standing up for you.

    Brian Gamble: [Looks back at Velazquez and walks towards Fuller] No. I'm lucky I don't have to work for an asshole like you.

    [Shoves a few things off of Fuller's desk and pushes him back]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: [shouting over Gamble] That's it, you're outta here, Gamble, you're gone, Gamble, you're gone!

    [Gamble is pushed out of the office]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Street, Street, stay.

    Street: [to Gamble] Hey!

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Give us a minute.

    [the rest of the cops leave]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Jim, sit down.

    Street: I'll Stand.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Okay,

    [Sits down]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Jim, be both know that Gamble is a bad influence on the rest of the team.

    Street: Gamble's a good cop.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Unlike him, you still have a chance ata future here. You'll go on record by following after Gamble recklessly. But you had no choice but to follow your partner after he disobeyed orders, and I'll make sure you're back on SWAT tomorrow morning.

  • Capt. Thomas Fuller: The Chief is *making* me take you back. He's concerned about losing all his best officers to other cities.

    Hondo: He thinks that I'm one of his best officers?

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: But, he's given me complete oversight, and trust me, you've got no room for error.

    [Looking at the files]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: So, I will give you Boxer, T.J. McCabe and this new guy, uh, Deacon Kay. I'm gonna pass up the other 2. Sanchez is a woman and Street? Well, Street's on my shit list.

    Hondo: Hey, *I'm* on your shit list too, and I'm the team leader.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: You work for *me* now, and it's *my* team to choose.

    Hondo: With all due respect, Captain, other leaders get to pick their teams.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: And you can too, just pick two new people.

    Hondo: Look. Just give me the team I asked for. You can even call it your *shit list* team. That way, if anything goes wrong, you can put all the blame on me. It'll be just like old times.

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: Okay. Okay, you got your team.

    [Puts the files together]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: But, when you fail, and you probably will fail, Sanchez goes back to Traffic, and you and your boy Street are plain gone.

    [Hondo shrugs in disgust]

    Capt. Thomas Fuller: No, not just off S.W.A.T., off the force. You *feel* me?

    Hondo: Oh yeah, I *feel* you.
