9-1-1: Lone Star (2020) s03e04 Episode Script


- Come on.
Please, please.
- (DIALING PHONE) - Gracie, give it up, okay? - (LINE BEEPING) At this point all that thing's good for is keeping your ear warm.
(KEYPAD BEEPING) CB radio, on the other hand, that would come in handy, wouldn't it? I'm sorry, what was that? Oh, I was just saying if we'd taken my truck like I suggested back at the house Billy, if you're on your way to an I-told-you-so? I will rip your weasel tongue out, stick it to that windshield just to watch it freeze.
You conjure quite an image.
(GRACE SIGHS) How's them contractions? They still coming on the regular? GRACE: Oh, God, please, no.
(WINCES) (SCREAMING IN PAIN) Why would you say that? - Oops.
(GASPING) - Sorry.
Uh Okay, just think of something else, okay? Uh Why don't you You-you wanna squeeze my hand? Just squeeze my hand.
You can keep your weasel hands as far away from me as possible.
How about that? Seems we have a running weasel theme here.
All right.
Why don't I go do some foraging, huh? Maybe I can find a car that still drives or at least has a working radio.
Yeah, I think that would be wise.
You know, like my truck.
- You you're a dead man.
- Be right back.
Here I go.
(WIND WHISTLING) When I'm alone and I'm dreaming TK: Come on, Mom, could we please try one now? GWYNETH: Just give it one more second to cool.
TK: Ugh! Don't ugh me.
(LAUGHS) Remember that Purim when you tried to eat the hamantaschen right out of the oven? I was like nine.
And you couldn't taste anything for a week.
TK: That's not true.
It was two weeks and everything tasted like hair.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) You ever think about going back, to temple? TK: I don't know.
It's just been so long, it would it would be weird now.
I think it would be good for you you know, to get back in touch with that part of yourself.
Now more than ever.
I'll think about it, okay? Hmm.
- Now, could we please try one? - MOM: Sure.
Yes! - Oh, wow.
- They're pretty good, huh? (CHEWING) Pretty good? That is the best cookie I've ever had in my life.
You know what the best part about that cookie is? - TK: Hmm? - Calorie-free.
How? Because, silly, they don't exist.
Um Mom? Yes.
Am I dead? You're not dead.
Are you? I'm not even here.
How am I talking to you then? Because you need me to be the person to tell you this.
- Tell me what? - Stop it.
Stop what? Dying.
One, two.
(BEEPING CONTINUES) NURSE: God, look at him.
So young.
JANINE: Kid's a hero too, apparently.
Heard he got hurt saving a little boy.
NURSE: He would have been better off if they'd never brought him back from that cardiac out in the snow.
JANINE: Yep, now he gets to torture the friends and family for another three days.
NURSE: Three days? I've seen one go for three weeks.
No kidding.
In this state? Yup.
First year out of nursing school.
Well, either way, at this point, it's a matter of when, not I We didn't mean Dr.
Patel will be by soon with an update.
Excuse us.
(CLICKS SWITCH) Oh, great.
We came home to rough it.
I've been trying to reach you.
Hey, did you ever manage to get in touch with the Cap? It's nice to see you, too.
Yeah, I saw him.
In fact, he just dropped me off.
So he's back in town? Oh, it's a whole story.
What, uh Where is he now? I assume home.
Why? I still got no service.
Uh Did you get him to sign the Billy letter? What are you doing here? I thought you were assigned to the 129.
Captain Tatum loaned me to the 122 to help dig Paul out.
Dig Paul out? Dig him out of what? Gym collapse over at the Providence Pasture Church.
What was he doing there? We were all there.
After the first collapse.
You are aware that you start your stories in the middle, yeah? - So did you get him out? - Yeah, we got him out.
So where is he? In the hospital.
Is he okay? Yeah, I mean, he's okay.
MARJAN: All right.
So who's not? (MONITOR BEEPING) Am I the world's biggest schmuck? What? I'm holding vigil for a man who doesn't even want me in his life.
Doesn't that just scream "schmuck"? Hell to the no.
First of all, TK loves you.
And second, where did you pick up "schmuck"? From TK.
Must have rubbed off.
Why do you say that? That he loves me? Because it's true.
You've been by his side all this time.
Does he ever talk about me? Honestly, not much.
I didn't think so.
But he does bite off my head any time I bring up your name.
That makes me feel so much better.
It should, you big dummy.
He doesn't wanna hear it because it's too painful for him, which means he still has it bad for you.
It's obvious.
Dude loves you.
If he loves me so much then why did he break my heart? How do you like the new look? (WHINES) Yeah, you're right.
It's pretty much just the same old look.
But no reaction, huh? Really? How about this? This give you a reaction? - (BUTTERCUP WHINES) - Yeah.
(KNOCK ON DOOR) Captain Vega.
Owen What's happened? We need to talk.
(QUIET CHATTER) (INDISTINCT ANNOUNCEMENT OVER PA) They're telling me that his body is trying to shut down.
And they say it's because his heart stopped.
But I don't think that's right, I think it's because mine did.
You were right.
I gave up.
I quit.
And it didn't wasn't about ego or pride.
I wish it was.
It was about fear.
Our world imploded so spectacularly and everybody was looking to me to put it back together and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to.
This time.
And so I ran away.
Everything that's happening it's my fault.
No, Owen.
OWEN: No, but it's-it's true.
So you can tell the universe.
Message received.
I mean, it may be too late and I may not be able to fix things, but I'm sure as hell gonna try.
I'm not waitin' around.
What does that mean? It means I'm gonna go find Billy Tyson, gonna put that signed letter of apology in his hand, and I'm gonna get myself reinstated.
You're gonna go do that now? It's something he can do.
Look, I don't know if I can fix the world in time for my for my boy to wake up, but When he does, I want him to see that he's not the only Strand who's still fighting.
Would you like some company, Captain? I would love that.
You can reach me on my radio if you need me.
PAUL: Hey, Cap? It's good to have you back.
(WIND WHISTLING) (GRACE SIGHS) God, I've never been this cold in my life.
And I know I got myself here because I was headstrong and I was reckless.
I was filled with wrath even though I'm I'm kinda hoping you'll overlook that last part because this is Billy Tyson we're talking about.
(SIGHS) I'm scared now, God.
(SHUDDERING BREATHS) I'm asking that you please deliver me out of this.
Not for me, but because this child deserves a chance to meet her father.
Please, God.
(KNOCK ON WINDOW) Wanna open the door, please.
(SIGHS) Did you find something? Not gonna be the answer to your prayers or anything Okay.
But better than sticking around in this icebox.
How far do you think you can you walk? As far as it takes.
(TENSE MUSIC) Let me help you.
GRACE: I got it.
I got it.
Aye, mi amor.
What are you doing here? I told you not to go out in the storm.
ANDREA: Callate.
You think I'd let a few snowflakes keep me from my boy when he's hurting? Does Dad know you're here? What is he gonna say? Well, I I appreciate it.
What are the doctors saying? That he, uh he's heading in the wrong direction.
Well, the doctors don't know everything.
This boy is a fighter.
And he has something to fight for.
He's got the love of his life sitting right here waiting for him.
We broke up.
What? When? A few months ago.
Why didn't you say anything? I wanted to, but it was so amazing how you and Dad supported us.
I just didn't want to let you down.
Carlos there is nothing you can do to let us down.
Your father and I are so proud of the man you are.
You have no idea how proud.
Thank you.
And we love TK too.
But when this boy wakes up, we're gonna have a little conversation.
A conversation about what? About why he thought he can break my baby's heart and get away with it.
Hmm? - Mama's not happy.
- (LAUGHING) (WIND WHISTLING) BILLY: Just a little further.
Here we are.
- GRACE: What is this? - BILLY: A tour bus.
GRACE: We gettin' out in this, Billy? BILLY: Nah, it ain't going nowhere, but it's shelter.
Come on.
(GRACE PANTING) BILLY: What do you think? GRACE: It's not exactly sterile.
Yeah, neither was the manger.
A restroom in the back, though I can't speak to the plumbing.
Here, why don't you You lay down.
(GROANS SHARPLY, EXHALES) No, not that one.
I brought my own.
I don't know where that one's been.
All right, good call.
- (BILLY SIGHS) - GRACE: I got it, I got it.
BILLY: I'll see if I can get the heat going for us.
GRACE: Whoo! Billy, you didn't really expect to find the keys under the seat, did you? Expecting? No.
I was hoping, though.
Luckily, I possess a set of skills one might call extra-legal.
Billy Tyson has a shady side? Knock me over with a feather.
(ENGINE STARTS, REVVING) (BEEPING) Now we're cookin' with gas.
(EXHALES) (ENGINE TURNS OFF) - What happened? - No gas.
Well, we gotta go somewhere else then, Billy.
(GROANS SHARPLY) Those contractions are comin' thick and fast now, okay? You can't be out in the elements trying to deliver no baby.
What difference does it make? Either we freeze in here or we freeze out here.
We are not gonna freeze, okay? We just need some fuel.
So you just gonna walk over to the filling station and get some? No.
I'm gonna go siphon us some with this.
(SIGHS) (GROANS) This is Captain Tommy Vega going for Deputy Chief Tyson.
Don't use my name.
It gets him awfully skittish.
Yeah, I'm aware.
TOMMY: Deputy Chief Tyson, do you copy? This is Tommy Vega.
Radio silence.
Owen, I, uh, I-I need to tell you No.
- You don't have to do that.
- Yes, I-I really do.
No, no, you don't.
You know why? Because I don't wanna hear it.
What are you gonna say? There's something you could have done differently or better.
Yes, that's right.
Well, you know what? You're right.
Because there always is.
(INHALES AND EXHALES DEEPLY) You don't have to ask for my forgiveness.
You already have it.
Thank you.
For saying that.
I mean No matter what happens, I can't think of anyone I would have rather have had my son serve under than you.
- (RADIO CHIRPS) - This is Captain Vega for Deputy Chief Tyson.
Do you read? (DRAMATIC MUSIC) (SPITS, COUGHS) Good God.
(SPITS, COUGHS) (GRUNTS) It almost looks like he's trying to say something, no? The nurse said they're just muscle spasms.
They don't mean anything.
Well, I wouldn't be so sure of that.
I think you need to talk to him, son.
Why not? I wouldn't know what to say.
You tell him what's on your heart.
If I told him what's on my heart, it wouldn't be very nice.
- Because you're angry? - Yes.
- Then tell him.
- I can't right now, Mom.
Now is the time, Carlitos.
He needs to hear it and you need to say it.
Heaven forbid that this is your last chance to say what you need to say to this man.
Hazlo, mijo.
I'll be outside.
(SOMBER MUSIC) (GROANING) Ohh, you're back.
Hey, I'm back.
How we doing? GRACE: I'd be better if you told me you found an epidural out there, Billy.
I did find about a gallon of diesel, though, which does seem to take the edge off, by the way.
Oh! (BLOWS) All right, come on, girl.
Here we go.
- You hear that? - I hear it, Billy, I hear it.
Heat's on full blast.
Should only take a minute to warm up.
Apologies if I smell like a barrel of crude.
- You okay? - BILLY: Yeah, fine.
Just a sip or two of diesel over my personal limit.
Are you sure, Billy? Your eyes look a little glassy.
Yeah, I'm fine, okay? Just stop.
- (GROANS) - I'm supposed to be looking after you.
(GASPS) (BODY THUDS) TOMMY (OVER RADIO): Hey, Juddy, you there? - It's Tommy.
- Yeah, I'm here.
You able to track down Captain Strand? He's, uh, here with me actually.
I want you to know how sorry I am about TK.
And I'm praying for him.
I appreciate that.
Um, have you happened to have heard from your wife? JUDD: No, not since the cell phones went down, but she's at home.
Why? Uh, actually, she's not at home.
What do you mean? How do you know that? Because we're standing in your living room.
What the hell y'all doing? Judd, we've been trying to track down Billy.
We had his GPS ping to this location and his truck is out front, but he's gone.
We were wondering if you might know where they are.
JUDD: There is no they.
Grace ain't going nowhere with Billy.
So look around, see if you can find a pink duffel.
Okay? That's her go-bag for the hospital.
- Yeah, there's no baby bag.
- (SIGHS) Well, then she must have gone into labor of all the damn days.
All right, Juddy.
We've radioed every hospital within 20 miles and no one's got her.
Yeah, which means that she's stuck out there in this.
Where were you planning on having the baby? Our birth plan was for West Park.
Okay, we're gonna head over there.
I'll see if I can get Captain Andrews to lend me a truck so we can start looking too.
You come in from the north, we'll come in from the south - and meet in the middle.
- Please, God.
Just let her be okay.
It's me.
I've been here for a while now.
I don't even know if you want that, but I guess you're not in any position to walk out this time.
And even if you can't hear it Mom's right.
I just need to say it.
I'm so mad at you right now.
And the worst part about this is if this is goodbye.
I can't even hold your hand.
Or run my fingers through your hair, or kiss your head.
Not without it feeling like it's some kind of violation.
Believe people when they tell you who they are.
Just believe them, right? He looks so mad, Mom.
CARLOS: Yeah, well, that's exactly He doesn't look particularly happy.
when you walked out our first date.
What in the world did you do to this boy? Why do you immediately assume that it was my fault? 'Cause I'll have you know that there was blame on both sides.
I didn't, and that's okay.
MOM: Tyler Kennedy.
You don't really want to go with that line, do you? That's your mechanism of defense, right? Whatever it was, just own it.
Why do I even have to tell you? I mean, you already know.
You're just a figment of my imagination.
Figment or not, I am still your mother.
(SIGHS) Okay, fine.
Remember when Carlos' townhouse burned down? Who can forget? So many innocent hoodies lost their lives that night.
(SIGHS) After that, you know, we were staying with Dad while looking for a place and Carlos eventually found this loft downtown with polished concrete floors and great light and, you know, walking distance to some amazing nightlife.
That sounds fantastic.
Ugh, you have no idea.
I was so in love with it, but they didn't wanna lease it.
They were looking for buyers, not renters.
And you couldn't come up with the down payment.
Well, you know my credit I-I haven't always made the best choices.
You don't say.
So then we had to deal with the crushing disappointment.
Whose crushing disappointment? Mostly mine.
You know, Carlos said he didn't care where he lives so long as it was with me.
So we agreed to keep looking until eventually he says he thinks he found something, and he takes me back to the same exact place and says, "Surprise, it's ours!" So without telling me, he went back and made an offer.
That is so romantic.
Romantic? It's-it's a total power move.
Or an unbelievably sweet gesture.
Well, it could be both.
It was a really sweet power move.
I mean he didn't want me to feel like I was just living in his place again, so he put me on the deed and he knew I didn't have the money, but he still made me a half owner.
So you panicked.
And then I panicked.
Because things were too good.
Everything was perfect.
And then you did the thing.
I did the thing.
You blew it up.
I blew it up.
(BOTH SIGH) TK: I hurt him so bad, Mom.
What if he doesn't want to take me back? MOM: There's only one way to find out.
You need to wake up! (GRACE GROANING) GRACE: Billy Billy, I think it's time.
What? - (SCREAMING) - Easy.
Easy, easy, easy, easy.
Here, let me, uh What can I get you? Can I (SCREAMING CONTINUES) - Essential oils? - No! You got Valiant Vapor, Misty Mama.
GRACE (GROANING): Billy! Please just take my hand.
Sure thing.
You got it.
(EXHALES DEEPLY) I need my husband.
(DRAMATIC MUSIC) Come on, Grace, where are you? OWEN (ON RADIO): Judd, we're crawling up Exposition.
The road's a little jammed up.
Where are you? We're southbound on Enfield at De Zavala.
Still ain't no sign of her.
Owen, there, I think that's Gracie's car.
Pull over! Yeah, definitely Grace's car.
- We found her car.
- She ain't in it? TOMMY: It looks like they abandoned it.
Tommy, footprints.
(WIND WHISTLING) TOMMY: Footprints in the snow, Juddy.
She can't be far.
Hey, you know what? Just stop.
I'm gonna hoof it from here.
OWEN: Bus is running.
Hey! (SCREAMING) OWEN: Hey! Hey! Grace? They're here! (ALL EXCLAIMING) Oh, Tommy.
Oh, thank God.
Gracie! All right.
We are here now.
I can see you're in good hands.
I'm gonna check you out.
Here we go.
- (GROANS) - All right.
Listen to me.
It's time to push.
All right? Tommy, we gotta wait.
I need Judd here.
I gotta have my husband.
Gracie, listen to me.
He did everything he could to get here in time.
Mama, it's time to push.
Trust me, we can do this.
- You got this.
Okay? - Okay.
JUDD: Gracie! (PANTING) (LAUGHS) (LAUGHING) Hey Oh Sweetheart, you made it.
You didn't think I was gonna miss this, did you? Oh.
- TOMMY: All right, Daddy.
- Come on.
You're up.
- (GRACE GROANS) - TOMMY: Almost there.
- You got it, Gracie.
You got it, Grace.
Good girl.
Good girl.
(BEEPING CONTINUES) (GASPING) One more just like that, just one more breath in.
He's fighting, doctor.
- TOMMY: Push.
(LAUGHING) Is this really necessary? I've already seen this place.
Not finished, you haven't.
(SIGHS) You're such a control freak.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, shut up.
- Okay.
- Hm Open your eyes.
TK: Oh, my God.
Th This is so much nicer than I remember.
TK: Wow.
Is that my exercise bike? Mm-hmm.
Is that my my throw blanket? Did you break into my house and move me in while I was in the hospital? (CARLOS LAUGHING) No, of course not.
Mateo let me in.
You moved me in.
- I moved you in.
- Moving sucks.
Welcome home, TK.
(BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING) You know, you You are the world's biggest control freak, right? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's okay.
You love it.
You love it.
It's okay.
It's okay.
(GRUNTS) You guys ready to meet your little cousin? EVIE AND IZZY: Yeah.
She might be sleeping.
Oh, friend, I wish.
Come say hey, girls.
It's all right.
She won't bite.
Oh, she bites.
But she saves that just for her mama.
Aw, she's so cute! Thank you.
Now this is Evie and Izzy.
They're both gonna be looking out for you your whole life, so you gotta do what they say, okay? We'll be nice, we promise.
We brought her something.
I see.
What is this? A penguin.
Because she was born in the snow.
Y'all are so sweet.
Thank you so much.
- I thought of it.
- IZZY: No, you did not.
- EVIE: Did so.
- I'm the one who just did the report on the emperor penguins.
- EVIE: So what? - TOMMY: Ladies, enough.
Y'all did the right thing just startin' with one.
Oh, she's beautiful.
Yeah, she's lucky.
She favors her mama.
Oh, yeah, well, I see plenty of you in there, Juddy.
Oh, my goodness.
All right, time to take your godchild.
What took you so long? My goodness.
(SPEAKING SPANISH) Oh! Now have y'all decided what you're gonna name this miracle baby? (WISTFUL MUSIC PLAYING) Tommy, we wanted to name her Charlie.
EVIE: Charlie's a boy's name.
Hey, now.
IZZY: Sounds like our father's name.
GRACE: Now we, um we just wanted to honor him, T.
We don't wanna overstep in any way.
Yeah, if it's, if it's uncomfortable or anything, you know, we ain't married to it, so I like it.
Do you like it? (COOS) I like it very much.
FOREMAN: All right, Marty.
Lower it down.
Go more.
Can't believe it's finally over.
MARJAN: Hey, at least we went down swinging.
Thank you for fighting for the 126 and for me.
It's been a pleasure working with you, Marjan.
You, too.
I have never had as much fun on the job as in your house, Cap.
That's very kind of you to say.
FOREMAN: All right, Marty.
Lower it down.
Little more.
It's good.
NANCY: Uh, Cap? ("BLOOM" BY THE PAPER KITES PLAYING) Now, I know y'all aren't trying to have a pity party without carbs.
- Come on now.
- Hey, man.
What's up? In the morning when I wake What are the odds any of this is gluten-free? No way, Cap.
Those are fully leaded, old school, everything is bad for you donuts.
Today, we eat our feelings.
- Give me a bear claw.
- Oh! Well done, good choice.
How about you, Marj? You know what, just save me one with sugar.
Shall I write it in a letter? So glad you all came.
You kidding? We wouldn't miss it.
I mean, we wouldn't miss it again.
I can't lie.
This one stings.
I spent the best years of my life here.
Hell, most of my life.
I'm really gonna miss this place.
FOREMAN: All right, Marty, whenever you're ready.
NANCY: Oh, man, you guys.
Here we go.
(CELL PHONE CHIMES) Can I be close to you? Holy crap.
I mean, holy crap.
NANCY: What? Our GoFundMe to save the 126? It just got fully funded.
Come on, Marj, stop messing with us.
- MARJAN: I'm not.
- Wait.
Somebody gave us $4.
6 million? A whole five actually.
Who would do that? Someone named Cole Robertson.
- Hey! Hey! - Hey.
- Whoa, whoa, hey! - MARJAN: Stop! Stop! OWEN: Time out.
Time out.
Does anyone know who this Cole Robertson is? - No clue.
- I've never heard of him.
Are we sure he's even a real person? Oh, yeah, he's definitely real.
I want to start by thanking the Robertson family, whose generous gift to the AFD allowed us all to be here together today.
It's the least we could do after what your people did for us.
(APPLAUSE) OWEN: The push-in ceremony has its origins dating back to the 1800s when horses were used to pull hand pumpers.
But upon returning to the station, the horses could not back up to push in the rigs.
So the firefighters had to manually push them into the bays.
In honor of that, it's become tradition for firefighters to push their rigs in the very first time they enter their firehouse.
The push-in ceremony reminds us that even the best equipment in the world is useless without the people who operate it.
The 126 six is a family.
These uniforms bind us tighter than blood.
(RINGS BELL) Like a family, we argue, screw up - (RINGS BELL) - Let each other down.
But as long as we keep fighting for one another, there is no challenge that we cannot rise to.
There is no crisis that we cannot overcome.
This building stands today not because of its bricks and mortar, but because of the heart and the soul of the family inside of it.
And so it shall always be.
That's game, baby! PAUL: No way! My girl Lindsey's puck wins it for team red in a squeaker.
MATEO: I think you've had too much punch, Paul.
Nancy's is definitely the winning puck.
PAUL: Oh Hey, Marjan.
Which puck is further? I'm gonna have to go with whichever one belongs to the daughter of the man who bought the table and the building that it's in.
You wanna hold her? Uh, that's all right.
Probably just make her cry.
That's the effect you have on most people, but she's gotta get used to you sometime.
Come on.
All right.
Come here, you.
Come on.
Oh, don't do it.
Don't cry.
That's a future fire chief right there.
JUDD: Oh, Billy! So what do you think? It's still homey, right? I didn't go too far on the remodel.
What are you talking about? It looks exactly the same, Dad.
Are you out of your mind? The subway tile on the backsplash is new, isn't it? Thank you, Carlos.
Always wanted to get rid of that.
Almost makes this whole thing kinda worth it.
Mom? Is she really here? She's late, but she's here.
GWYNETH: I am so sorry that I missed the ceremony.
Why didn't you tell us you were coming? Because I didn't know if I could, and your father thought it would be more fun to surprise you.
- Hi, Carlos.
- Hi, good to see you, Gwyneth.
- Oh, my goodness.
- Hi! Hi.
Oh, don't squish your brother.
OWEN: He is gonna be a heartbreaker.
Am I crazy or does he kinda look like me? You're crazy.
That's not diesel, is it? Premium.
I'll take it.
Well, you did it, New York.
With your help, Texas.
All I did was get the hell out of the way.
That's all you had to do.
BILLY: Boys look good in their new spot.
OWEN: Mm-hmm.
To the 126.
This is the house that Jack built, y'all Remember this house This was the land that he worked by hand It was the dream of an upright man That was the room that was filled with love It was a love that I was proud of This was a life of a love that he planned On a love, the same old love In the house that Jack built The house that Jack built Remember this house There was the fence - that held our love - Yes, it was There was the gate that he walked out of This is the heart - that is turned to stone - Yes, it is This was the house, but it ain't no home This is the love that I once had In a dream that I thought was love In the house that Jack built The house that Jack built I'm gonna remember this house
