Carlos Nieto: You're not even listening to me!

Monte Parker: We had an assignment.
Carlos Nieto: We had 30 assignments waiting, but I guess they weren't important enough for you.

Monte Parker: Come on. There were cops calling for help!
Carlos Nieto: And I would've gone! I just wanted to be asked, man. You didn't even give me a chance!

Carlos Nieto: Just like you decided that I was gonna take that guy's money?
Monte Parker: So, that's what this is really about?
Carlos Nieto: No, no, it's about you. You don't want to talk to me. You want to talk at me and I'm over it. I'm over you.
Monte Parker: You think I give a damn what you're over? Huh?
Carlos Nieto: No, you don't and that's your problem.
Monte Parker: No, that's your problem because I am your superior and my word is final and you can't deal with that!
Carlos Nieto: Oh, whatever.
Monte Parker: I was doing this job when you were learning to walk, okay, so you could be as pissed as you want to be, but you damn well better respect that!

[Doc shoves Carlos]
Carlos Nieto: You wanna hit me again? Go ahead, take it all out on me. You selfish son of a bitch.

Kim Zambrano: [to Carlos] All right, we gotta go to SoHo.
Carlos Nieto: Do I look like a cabbie?

Carlos Nieto: [to Kim] I hate working with Levine. She's always talking about her dead husband.

Carlos Nieto: It's kind of hard not to when she carries his ashes around her neck.

Carlos Nieto: Ha ha. What? What? Are you jealous or something? Huh?
Holly Levine: You have to be kidding me.

Holly Levine: [to Carlos] You know what? You're right. That's what keeps Grace from jumping all over you.
Carlos Nieto: So, stop it, all right?
Holly Levine: No way is it that stupid haircut or the disgusting way you lick your lips when you're talking to her or the way you never look higher than her chest or lower than her ass or just your general creepiness you get whenever you're around any woman. That slimy look you get in your eyes like we're all hunks of meat in a deli display case and you haven't eaten in years. That is all very attractive. In fact, I'm sure that you're the man Grace Foster's been looking for all her life.
Carlos Nieto: I don't have a stupid haircut.

Monte 'Doc' Parker: Sit down!
Carlos Nieto: You wanna shoot me? Shoot me.

Carlos Nieto: [to Doc] Do you understand what you've done.

Carlos Nieto: Country club?
Grace Foster: So while I'm figuring out how to get back there, how about you do us both a favor?
Carlos Nieto: Sure.
Grace Foster: One, I got a face, two, don't even think about trying to be friends, and three, don't ever let me hear you refer to me as a newbie. Got that?

Carlos Nieto: [to Grace] Look, I respect how much you loved your old detail, but we aren't any country club.
Grace Foster: Yeah, okay.
Carlos Nieto: Don't walk away from me, come here. You know what? None of us were born the day you got here. You don't know anything about us. You have no idea how many calls we take, how many lives we've saved and lost, how many bullets we've ducked, no matter how minor you manage to make it all sound. I don't care whether you came from Bed-Stuy or Baghdad, you're not gonna minimize my experience here just because it's not yours. So you either learn to respect us the way that we respect you or just keep your mouth shut until you've clawed your way back to that war zone where you'd rather be, you got that?
Grace Foster: [to Kim] Guy's got stones.


"Third Watch: Firestarter (#4.7)" (2002)
Carlos Nieto: [to Doc when he gets Joy's phone number] I know nothing. You rule.

"Third Watch: Family Ties: Part 2 (#5.17)" (2004)
Dr. Breene: [to Carlos about Doc] Mr. Parker is an extreme example of what can happen if you don't have a release, someone to talk to. But sometimes it's enough for someone to just to listen.
Carlos Nieto: Listen? I had a cop in my bus last night. He died. While I was talking to him, he just died and I don't know why. Medically, I just don't understand it. I need Monte Parker here so I can ask him to explain it to me. Because he'd probably know. That's what he was to me. He's the only person I talk to.

Carlos Nieto: [to Davis] All right. I just wanna make sure we're clear on some things. If you're gonna have company over let me know ahead of time and I'll make myself scarce, alright? And no sleepovers, it'd be too creepy tiptoeing around in the morning so me and your date don't run into each other over the coffee filters.
Tyrone Davis: No, you're not gonna tell me who I can and cannot have in my own room, hell no.
