Hey, it's Love!
Marcus: Yep, she only works when I'm workin'.
Frank Pierce: I heard you and Love went on a blind date.

At the end of the movie we see an F.D.N.Y. Ambulance in the background. The story takes place in the early 1990s. In the early '90s, N.Y.C. E.M.S. was still under The Health and Hospitals Corporation of N.Y.C. The Fire Department did not take over E.M.S. until 1995, when Mayor Rudolph Guilliani saw that E.M.S. could supplement the income of F.D.N.Y.
