(RAPID BEEPING CONTINUES) (FLATLINE SOUNDS) (LAUGHTER) MARCY: Ooh, what do we have tonight? Oh, well, on the menu this evening, we have a fine ragù of assorted vegetables, pulled fresh from the midland soil by people who then sold them to me for money.
- Oh, really? - Yeah.
Mmm! Wow.
Chef Nash! I like the ring.
(RUNNING STEPS APPROACHING) Oh, gross! BOBBY: Dear Lord, thank you for another day full of love and family.
Thank you for this food.
Keep us all safe.
All right, Brook, are you ready? Give you some pasta? Robert, can you take this and give some to your mother? How are we gonna do this? (DISTORTED VOICES) MAN (FAINT, DISTORTED): Captain Nash, can you hear me? (ECHOING WHISPER): You have to go.

- Why!? - Sir, relax.
- Get him get him out of here.
- We'll walk him out.
- And keep his name off the damn radio.
- (INDISTINCT PA ANNOUNCEMENT) - (DOOR CLOSES) Am I fired? For what? Being an alcoholic? (SCOFFS SOFTLY) Pick a day, I'll point you to ten church basements.
You'll see some familiar faces.
Guess you read the report.
They cleared me.
I don't want that.
I confessed because 148 people died in there, Phil.
You were drunk and high and left a space heater on unattended, and it overheated.
Then the circuit breaker didn't trip.
The water supply failed to supply water.
Building alarms with dead batteries and no electrical backup.
Dozens of code violations that were overlooked.
I missed them, too, and I lived there.
I have to own this.
I have to What? Punish yourself? Yes.
You want to be punished? Your punishment is that you lived.
Now, make it worth a damn.
I'm an alcoholic.
OTHERS: Hi, Bobby.
BOBBY: When I first came here, I was alone.
No friends, no family, no higher power.
I told Oscar I didn't believe in it, I didn't need it.
And he said, "Imagine "you're by the ocean.
"You walk out into the waves.
"You hold out your hand, and you say, 'Stop.
"'Be still.
' "And if the ocean obliges, congratulations, you're God.
" (CHUCKLING) "And if it don't, "sit down, shut up "and accept how powerless you really are.
Or get drunk.
" (CHUCKLING) I'm not real good with speeches, and I'm-I'm less good with praise, but I'm all right with gratitude.
So I want to say thank you.
I wouldn't be here without you.
(APPLAUSE) OSCAR: So, how was work? Still riding a desk.
- And climbing the walls? - Yeah.
Yeah, I got to be honest, I want to get back out there.
I need to get back out there.
You've been working the steps, and you're coming up on the difficult one.
This is for when you get there.
"We made a list of all persons we had harmed.
We became willing to make amends to them all.
" I'm proud of you, Bobby.
They would be, too.
- Six months.
- Fantastic.
Keep at it and we can start a poker game.
- (CHUCKLES) - So - what's next? - I go back to work.
Real work.
Put me back out there.
I'm not sure you're ready for that.
148 names.
Those are lives that I owe to balance the books, and I can't do that riding a desk.
- I'm ready.
- Great.
You are.
It's gonna take a while for any of these guys to feel comfortable walking through fire with you watching their back.
All right, then transfer me.
I don't care where.
Bobby, what's really going on? I need to atone for what I've done in my own way, and if you won't let me do that here, then send me someplace that will.
Dart and a map, coach.
Just put me in.
(BIG BAND MUSIC INTRO PLAYS) If you have sunshine and beaches HEN: All right, folks, five minutes.
House is open.
$20 goes in, $100 pays out.
- What's the over-under? - I got six weeks.
Give me four on credit.
- (SCOFFS) - I gotta run to the ATM.
Boy, I'm gonna eat your lunch, and you better pay up 'cause I know the bookie, and she's a madwoman.
- Sal, you in? - I'll give him one week, tops.
Guy's from, like, Nebraska.
- Minnesota, actually.
- Whatever.
There's New York, there's L.
, and in between, there's Nebraska.
Ooh, Chicago's gonna kick your ass.
Hey, there's a whole lot of Little Leagues out there, but if you ain't the Yankees, you're just not playing baseball.
Doesn't everybody hate the Yankees? Listen, we've had, like, six captains in two years.
We're like the Island of Misfit Toys for retiring brass.
Might be nice for somebody to stick around for a while.
I'm saying the barn burns down or the road needs salting, sure, guy's a rock star.
Fire at the fair, news at 11:00.
But L.
's gonna look like Mars to this Podunk, and we're fresh out of training wheels.
(SIREN WAILS) Smog free day You're also out of half the supplies that should be stocked on this truck.
So give me the odds on lasting longer than one or all of you.
Briefing in five.
I've got 20 on the Viking.
And they passed it by 9-1-1, what's your emergency? The palm tree is eating him alive! 9-1-1, what's your emergency? Her head is swelling up like a melon! It's Maurice, he's gone crazy! (SIREN WAILING) ("CRAZY TRAIN" BY OZZY OSBOURNE PLAYING) (HORN HONKING) MAN: Help! BOBBY: What am I looking at? Are we rescuing a cat? Whoa! Tree trimmer.
Fronds got him.
(SIREN WAILING) - (GRUNTING) - CHIMNEY: Really wedged in there.
Tommy, get on the ladder and prep the saw.
Hen, I need you teed up at the base, ready to attend.
Looks like an allergic reaction - to the hair dye.
- (CHIMNEY GRUNTS) - It's probably PPD.
- PP what? Mental wounds not healing Life's a bitter shame - I thought this was a holistic salon.
- AMY: We are.
We pride ourselves on our green policies.
We even use non toxic products to clean the equipment.
You didn't use it on my head.
Off the rails on a crazy train I- I need a decoder ring.
Who lays out a city this way? I've listened to fools - This happen a lot? - Few times a year.
Sometimes the weight can snap their necks.
Sometimes they suffocate before we can get to them.
Okay, cut her free.
Just don't decapitate her.
It's my first day.
One person conditioned To rule and control The media sells it Just hang in there, okay? We're gonna get you out of there.
I hope so.
I have a really big audition this afternoon.
Let's get on the freeway right here.
Driving me insane CHIMNEY: Doing great.
Just relax.
On a crazy train - (HORNS HONKING) - (SIREN WAILING) 2:00 in the afternoon.
Where are these people even going? On a crazy train All right.
I know that things are going wrong for me (JULIE GASPS) Yeah, you got him? (TREE TRIMMER SCREAMING) My words (JULIE CRYING) CHIMNEY: Almost there.
- We're coming down.
- (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Well, that's new.
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.
I don't think she's getting that part.
(SIREN WAILING, HORN HONKING) All right, a stabbing.
This I can deal with.
Patch them up, move them out.
(TED GRUNTING) Help me! Please, help me.
Not seeing any punctures.
- Just - HEN: Slashes.
They don't look like knife wounds.
They're too narrow and shallow.
- Razor blade? - Sir, can you tell us what happened? Maurice went crazy.
Okay, we're gonna patch you up and get you out of here.
- The police are on their way.
- Police? No, no, no, no, no.
(CLUCKING) Oh, there he is! - BOBBY: Come on! - TED: He's coming, he's coming! - I guess that's Maurice.
- Oh, my A cockfighting ring? That's what we're doing back here? Why are we helping him? TED: What are you, one of those animal rights types, huh? - Well, her name is Hen.
- (CROWING) So what do we do with the assailant? TED: He's gonna attack.
Don't look at him.
SAL: No, no, no, no, I-I We got this.
We got this.
Help me corner the colonel here.
- Hah! (KISSING SOUNDS) Oh, God! - What, are you gonna kiss him? CHIMNEY: Do you want to stay and see what happens? We're already looking at what's gonna happen.
TOMMY: Hey! (LAUGHING) SAL: Rocky, dude.
All right.
Come on.
You're okay.
I got you.
You're okay.
You're okay.
I got you.
West Coast, meet Midwest.
You're okay.
All right, buddy, you're okay.
LAPD, I'm Sergeant Grant.
Got a call about a stabbing.
Unknown assailant.
Well, actually, his name is Maurice.
Wha (GASPS) Don't worry, he's been disarmed.
Go easy on him, Sergeant.
He's had a rough day.
No, no.
No, no.
No, nope.
(CLUCKING QUIETLY) OSCAR: So, how's the left coast treating you? Um it's a different world.
You been making your meetings? BOBBY: Hasn't really been a problem.
No matter where you go, never hard to find a room full of old drunks and addicts.
90 meetings in 90 days, Bobby.
And you'll keep looking for a local sponsor, right? Yeah.
Take care of yourself, Bobby.
Will do.
Oh, sorry.
Did I keep you long? That man has had a ridiculously busy month.
Uh, it's all right.
I just It's been a while since I've done this.
- Can we just talk here? - Please, sit down.
Something for your collection plate, Father Oh.
Would've been a year, but last night - I-I reset the clock a bit.
- Mm.
- Did you have a bad day? - No, I had a good one.
And you don't get to have those? I don't deserve to have those.
I made a mistake.
And, Father, there aren't enough candles in this church for the people that I hurt.
But I made a promise, and I've got a plan.
A way to make things right.
And until then, you don't get to be happy? I don't get to forget.
And for a moment, I did.
Was doing good work with good people.
It felt familiar, like my life before.
(SIGHS) And I thought if I let myself I could go on living.
Where'd you transplant from? Minnesota.
Took a job at the LAFD.
I basically ran away from one fire into another.
In my experience, there's only been one person who was good at multitasking from a cross.
He saved everybody from up there.
Now, if you want to help people, take this back and earn it again.
Thanks so much, you guys.
Thank you.
How are we looking? - Uh - That good, huh? Well, it's worse than last month.
- Which was - Worse than the month before that.
We're gonna be okay.
We'll figure it out.
Hey, why don't you, uh, forget about the paperwork and just take Freddie home? I'll lock up.
Are you sure? What? You afraid I can't keep up with the dinner rush? (CHUCKLES) Point taken.
- I'll see you guys at home, okay? - Okay, honey.
Get your stuff together, we're going home.
Wait a minute, I just want to finish this part, all right? Hey.
Can I get you something else? Like food? Why would I want food? Well, because you're in a restaurant.
- Yeah, no.
- Look, man, you gotta buy something or you gotta leave.
I'm taking my business elsewhere.
What business? What business?! 9-1-1, what's your emergency? Our restaurant is on fire! I think my son's in there.
What's your location? Guillermo's Eatery.
2384 Ferrer Avenue.
I think my son went back in for his laptop.
I accidentally left it in there and now - Freddie! - Victor! My husband just ran in there after him.
Please, hurry! (SIREN WAILING) (HORN HONKS) ELLIE: Why haven't they come out yet? Why didn't the sprinklers come on? We got two inside.
Teenage boy and his dad.
Please, my family's in - Stay back.
- Ma'am, ma'am, we are on it.
Let's get a hose line going.
Kinard, you hit the roof.
- You guys work containment from out here.
- Please, please.
- You have to save them! - Han, Wilson.
Don't worry.
I got 'em.
Cyanokits on standby.
Deluca, you're with Deluca, get back here.
Deluca, what are you doing? DELUCA: My job.
Saving lives.
BOBBY: Deluca, what's your location? Lots of smoke, too much vapor.
Flashover conditions.
(COUGHS) Flashover.
(FLAMES WHOOSHING) (FLAMES RUMBLING) CHIMNEY: Okay, there's a skylight right above you.
I'm gonna vent the roof.
CHIMNEY: Copy that.
Clearing the roof.
- Where are you going? - There's a kid in there.
(COUGHING) Cap! Hey, Cap! Sal's got him! - Deluca, what the hell?! - Went out the back.
- Seemed safer.
- FREDDIE: Dad? - Dad.
Mom, I'm sorry.
- No.
No, no.
- I didn't mean it.
I didn't - No, No.
I-I know.
I know.
- I know.
- I didn't - I didn't mean to - Thank you.
Thank you so much.
- FREDDIE: Is my dad okay? - SAL: Yes, he'll be fine.
- But we got to move him.
- All right, let's get you in here.
It's gonna be okay.
I promise.
Found him hiding in the bathroom.
Smart kid.
Probably saved his own life with that move.
Well, I'm glad somebody was thinking tonight.
(SIREN WAILING) Deluca, I need a minute.
Now, Deluca! You're a piece of work.
You come in here with your nose in the air and your eyes looking down.
- Sal, stop.
- You might want to watch your tone there, Deluca.
Why? 'Cause you're my captain? You're not.
You're just the latest jackhole in a long line of jackholes that come into this house and think they know how to run it.
And you think you know how to run it? You put people's lives at risk so that you could play hero.
That kid would be dead right now if it wasn't for me.
BOBBY: We could all be dead right now because of you.
- We just got lucky.
- That wasn't luck, man.
That was skill.
The kind of skill it takes to save lives, to lead this house.
But definitely not the temperament.
Okay, enough.
Look, we get it, Fredo.
You got passed over.
Now let it go and say you're sorry.
You want me to apologize to this mook? Never gonna happen.
You are gonna learn to respect the chain of command, Deluca, or you're not gonna work here anymore.
Screw you.
Yeah, I guess I got my answer.
You're relieved of duty.
You're firing me? Pack your stuff, get out.
(INDISTINCT, OVERLAPPING VOICES) (FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING) Did one of you polish the pipes on the engine, or do you delegate that to a probie? That was that was me.
Did it not meet your expectations, Captain? No.
It exceeded them.
Nice work.
Thank you.
So what's with the book? Sorry.
I was just trying to make conversation.
Okay, Wilson, what do you want to talk about? Hen.
Everybody calls me "Hen.
" Not to be confused with "Han", who everybody around here calls "Chimney".
- Chimney? Why? - You should ask him.
And the guy you fired the other day we used to call him "Sal.
" You think I was wrong to fire him.
- He nearly got us killed.
- But he didn't.
- Everybody lived.
- Which is why I would have given him a second chance.
He didn't want one, at least not from me.
Maybe he'll have better luck at the 122.
You surprised? - You fired him.
- Yeah, from this house.
Then I called Chief Alonzo, and I suggested a suspension and transfer would be best for everyone.
That's gracious.
I like to think of it as fair which I do try to be.
Hopefully, you'll learn that as you get to know me.
Listen, tomorrow night some of us are going out for drinks.
You should join us.
I don't know.
Join us.
(BAR PATRONS CHATTERING, MUSIC PLAYING) Look, man, Sal may have been a tool, but he was a useful one most of the time.
- (CHUCKLES) - CHIMNEY: The punishment did not fit the crime.
He fired Sal to mark his territory.
Keep the rest of us in line.
HEN: Cap found a spot for him.
At the 122.
I mean, after six weeks of suspension - for insubordination.
- Seriously? Cap's plan was always just to reprimand him, - but Sal - Talked himself out of a job.
Well, at least that part tracks.
By the way, does anyone know what the hell - a "mook" is? - (HEN LAUGHS) BOBBY: It means a stupid person.
I googled it.
Didn't expect to see you here, Cap.
Ah, Wilson uh, Hen invited me.
- Oh, did she now? - What can I get for you? BOBBY: Can I get a club soda, please? And another round of whatever they're having? - Thanks.
- Thank you.
Drinks are on me tonight.
All right, make some room, come on.
Cap's here, Cap's here.
TOMMY: I'm telling you, single is easier.
Having the scars impresses women, - getting 'em freaks 'em out.
- HEN: Well, listen, I still get decent mileage out of this one.
(MEN OOH-ING) (CHUCKLES) That house fire, down in Venice, last year.
Factory explosion.
Caught a piece of shrapnel this big.
- HEN: Ooh - Ouch.
CHIMNEY: I don't know.
I am thus far unscarred and I fully intend to remain that way.
Besides, I find this whole ritual a pale insult to the great Robert Shaw.
(SCOFFS) - (EXHALES) What about you, Cap? - All right.
Four-alarm blaze at an outlet mall, electrical burn from a live junction box.
(EXHALES) - TOMMY: Oh, yeah.
Source of the fire, as it turned out.
"I don't want to die without any scars.
" (LAUGHS) - Tyler Durden? - Fight Club.
Come on! (LAUGHS) - HEN (ECHOING): What? - (LAUGHTER) I'm sorry, guys.
I have to call it a night.
I'm gonna make sure the waitress keeps the tab - open for you, okay? - (SLURRING): What, no.
ATHENA: Step away.
Hands in the air.
Sergeant Grant.
It's just me, Captain Nash.
I know.
You still upset about the rooster? What you doing here, Captain? Just following a hunch, I guess.
- You? - Same.
Laying in bed, trying to sleep and then I started thinking, "when it rains, it pours.
" But not in here.
See, sprinkler system never went off.
And the wife said it was serviced just last month.
Seems the water valve around back was shut off.
You have the same hunch? No.
Mine was about the source of the fire.
Typically, these things are electrical.
But the breaker's untouched.
Everything else is powered down.
I followed the burn patterns here.
And this is where I found the father.
Hmm, man runs into a building looking for his son and runs to the worst of it? (WOOD CLATTERS) Only how would he know where that is unless What do we got here? What is left of a nine-volt battery.
And you see there? Steel wool.
Improvised incendiary timing device.
Probably set it before he left and didn't expect - his kid to come back.
- Runs inside.
Doesn't see his son.
Tries to put out the fire, but it's too late.
This was arson.
Man sets his own place on fire.
I'm a hypocrite.
Bobby, I hate to break it to you, but I'm a sinner who wags his finger at other sinners.
So, welcome to hypocrisy.
I pulled this guy out of a fire.
Good man, good father.
Just in over his head.
So, he burned down his family business, for his family.
Almost got 'em killed.
But somehow it's me, the guy who did get his family killed, who has to hold him accountable, when I can't even hold myself (EXHALES) I wouldn't even have this job if Saint Paul hadn't whitewashed my file.
Strings were pulled to get me this job, details were left out, and I allowed it to happen.
So did St.
And I mean the man, not the city.
He wasn't always Paul, and he certainly wasn't always a saint.
- Saul.
- Christ appeared to him in a blinding flash and embraced him with love and absolution and gave him a fresh purpose and a new name.
Now, L.
is not exactly Damascus, Bobby, but it is where you find yourself.
Father, they whitewashed my file, not my application for sainthood.
And I let 'em.
- I don't deserve it.
- But that is the whole point of the story of St.
And of our faith.
Grace is not something that you earn or deserve.
It is a divine gift.
And I'm just supposed to accept that? Yes.
Thank you.
Can we talk? Something wrong, Sergeant? Anxious to get him home.
Sir? Just give us a minute, El.
ELLIE: You know, why don't we just bring the car around? No, no, I want to stay with Dad.
It's okay, buddy.
Just go with Mom.
- Come on.
- Dad, what's going on? VICTOR: It's okay.
They they just want to talk to me about the fire.
FREDDIE: Okay, what do you need to talk about? - It was an accident.
- No, it wasn't.
- Sir, you don't have to - Victor? - What did you do? - He didn't do anything.
Yes, I did.
I set the fire.
Every month, we went deeper into the hole, and we were gonna lose everything.
I I just thought a big check from the insurance company would give us another shot.
Sir, I'm gonna have to take you into custody.
What were you thinking? He was thinking of you.
He was thinking of both of you.
My father is not a criminal.
He's not a criminal! - Freddie, it's all right - No, don't you touch me! You said everything was gonna be okay.
You lied.
VICTOR: Freddie, stop, stop, okay? I have to go with them now.
- I have to go.
- FREDDIE: Dad I love you! I love you both! - Okay, enough, Freddie.
- You're supposed to save people.
- Enough.
- You're supposed to save them! BOBBY: He called me a liar.
And it stung.
Well, it sounds about right.
By your own admission, you're a hypocritical liar - who lies a lot.
- (CHUCKLES) All right.
All right, you made a joke out of that.
(CHUCKLING) Well, that's because it's funny.
But it's also true.
Your team.
The other firefighters.
- Do they know your past? - No.
- I don't want them to.
- Mm.
They're good people, good firefighters, and I ask everything of them.
To offer up all of themselves.
To trust that I can be in two places at once.
- How's that? - In front, to lead them.
And behind them, to always have their backs.
I ask for their trust, and I can't give it back in return.
You don't have to tell them what you've done in order to show them who you are.
Bobby, you may have a plan, and that's all well and good.
But I have faith.
I have faith that God has a very different plan for you.
Looking good.
Is where I want to be How are you? Hey.
Hi, Captain.
I feel numb Born with a weak heart I guess I must be having fun The less we say about it, the better We'll make it up as we go along Feet on the ground, head in the sky It's okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing I, yeah, I got plenty of time I, yeah You got light in your eyes BOBBY: Hey, listen up! I want everybody upstairs ASAP.
Come on.
What do you think that's about? I'm just hoping I'm not the one who gets fired this time.
What's going on? BOBBY: Little something I like to call dinner.
Take a seat.
CHIMNEY: I didn't know you cooked, Cap.
It's been a while.
I'm a little rusty, so, you'll have to forgive me if not everything - is exactly perfect.
- If that tastes as good as it smells, (CHUCKLING) I'll forgive you for anything.
So what's the occasion? No occasion.
I'm just starting a new tradition.
We here at the 118 work together and we eat together.
- Every shift.
- Family dinner.
- I'm in.
- (ALL CHUCKLING) (INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) Home is where I want to be But I guess I'm already there I come home She lifted up her wings I guess that this must be the place I can't tell one from another Did I find you or you find me? There was a time before we were born If someone asks, this is where I'll be Where I'll be I, yeah, we drift in and out I, yeah Sing into my mouth Surprise! (LAUGHING) - Aww - (CLAPPING) - Oh! - (CHEERING) How's that cake taste, Tommy? And you love me 'till my heart stops Love me 'til I'm dead Yo.
Uh, hi.
I'm Evan Buckley, new recruit.
I was told to report to Captain Nash.
You know a Captain Nash? You? You? BUCK: Uh Um - Take a seat, Evan.
- (LAUGHTER) Uh, Buck.
Ev Everyone just calls me Buck.
Well, welcome to the 118, Buck.
Thank you.
Ah, this is amazing.
- Is it always like this? - Always.
Well, when Bobby's in the captain's chair, anyway.
I think I might be in the right place.
Hey, Cap.
Why are you sitting up here in your civvies? And how come I am not smelling my breakfast? Heh.
Maybe you should all sit down.
This doesn't feel good.
All right.
I know the shift's about to start, but I wanted to be here to tell you this in person.
As of this morning, pending further investigation, I am officially suspended from my duties here at the 118.
What? Why? That-That's insane.
Suspended for what? For not disclosing what happened in Minnesota - before I took the job.
- Minnesota? - That's old news.
- Well, not to them, and if they knew all the details, there's a very good chance they never would've hired me.
Cap, you don't owe them that part of you.
- You owe them your record.
- All the people you've helped.
- The lives you've saved.
- Well, I knew the truth would catch up to me one day.
I just figured by the time it did, it wouldn't matter.
I'd have nothing left to lose.
I was wrong.
WOMAN: Captain Nash, you understand that you are entitled to have a union representative or attorney present? I do.
And you also understand that this is not - a criminal proceeding? - I do.
MAN: Captain Nash, the duty of this panel is to make a recommendation as to whether or not you should remain a member of the Los Angeles Fire Department, and anything you say to us will be used in making - this determination.
- I understand.
I just want to tell the truth.
