Chicago Fire s07e11 Episode Script

You Choose

1 Everything I own, my whole life, is ash.
Go to my place, that's your new home as long as you need it.
You and Kyle would be great together, you should call him.
I was just wondering if you want to have dinner with me.
You've been pushing me away ever since your dad died and I've done everything I can to try and make this work.
I love you, but I can't be with you anymore.
Hey, Bradley Boyd.
I'm hoping we can have the boat seaworthy by summer.
I realize it'll take up a lot of your time.
You know what? I'm in.
- Looking for your dad? - He's out with his girlfriend.
Grab a scraper.
All right, bud, so what are we looking for? A two-part poly whatever-it's-called varnish.
I was listening.
I always listen.
Yeah, you do.
So where do you go to school? Tramble Academy up in Highland Park.
How's that? Most of the kids live near it, so they get together all the time.
I just see them at school.
It's all right.
You know, I went to a school I could ride my back to.
I didn't get a choice.
Oh, is this it? It says "two part" on it.
- That's the one.
- All right.
I'm getting pretty good at this.
My secret plan is for you to get so good at it, you hire me to work on your gigantic yacht someday.
The last thing I expected was to be looking - for a new place for living.
- Ooh! Can I help? I've watched so many episodes of "House Hunters," I'm basically a qualified realtor.
I'll take all I can get.
Yes! Thank you, I live for this stuff.
Kyle's like, "Can we go see a movie? And I'm like, "'Flip or Flop' is about to start.
" How's that going with the chaplain? Incredible.
We click.
Pretty sure this is why there's a rule about not dating in the firehouse.
The thing about rules is they don't work unless you enforce them.
Severide's been in some mood, man.
He has? Try riding in the back of truck next to her.
What? Uh, nothing.
No, what'd you say? Uh I was just commenting on how, uh When when did you start wearing your hair pulled back like that? [GROANS.]
Okay, you know what? Let's just get this out in the open.
Yeah, Severide and I broke up.
No, it won't affect our ability to work together.
We are both adults, we moving on, End of discussion.
- Copy.
- Right.
- Well stated.
- For sure.
All right? What is this? "Fire safety dog competition"? We should enter Tuesday! - [WHIMPERS CURIOUSLY.]
- Oh no, I'm not sure Oh, she can win this thing.
Trust me, that dog is a superstar in the making.
Right, but I-I-I'm just not sure Traveling around to different schools, teaching kids stop, drop, and roll.
Are you kidding me? - Okay, still.
- Engine 51, Squad 3.
- Yeah, this is happening.
Vehicle accident.
Intersection of North State and Madison.
Oh, my God! I saw the entire thing! It just flew straight into the shelter at full speed! Didn't slow down or nothing.
Help! Help, please! We have a victim underneath! Will you back off, ma'am? Casey, take the driver.
- Severide! - Yeah! Capp, Cruz, Tony, let's get cribbing and air bags under this bus.
Let's lift the undercarriage off the curb.
- Copy that.
- Got it.
Anyone with minor injuries, sit over there and we'll get to you! Okay, 61 to Main, uh, let's get an EMS Plan One.
Set up the staging area at the intersection of Congress and Michigan.
Ma'am hold on.
We're gonna get you out! [GROANING.]
I can't move.
What's your name? - Brandon.
- All right, Brandon.
Just stay focused on me.
We're gonna get you out of here.
All right.
Hey, Cruz, where are those airbags? Landing now! Brett, the driver's having a seizure.
You gotta get her out of there.
Can't extract until Squad has the cribbing secured.
- Cruz? - Two minutes.
- What does she need? - Versed.
Prep her for it.
Otis, grab me the grinder.
- Set! - Go.
All right, almost there.
- Good to go.
- Hey, Tony or Cruz.
One of you guys, get on the other side.
Hold on! Hey, kid! Can you get under here for Severide? Yeah! - Grinder coming in.
- Come on, come on! [BUZZING.]
Hey, help me slide this backboard underneath.
Ma'am, can you hear me? I'm gonna give you 5 milligrams of Versed.
- Let it go, Brandon.
- You got it? Okay.
Hey, Casey, we're all clear! Okay, Truck, let's get the driver out of here! Take him out.
- Easy.
Slide her, pull her arm.
- Okay.
- Watch your head.
She seems stable.
Let's get her to Lakeshore.
Hey, thanks for helping me under there.
You see, "International House Hunters" is the fancier version of House Hunters.
Those are the only two in the franchise so far, but I think they should do another one.
Check it out: Farm Hunters.
People never talk about it on TV, but agriculture makes up over 40% of the land in the USA.
I think what's that? Oh, the bus driver's tag said "Anita" on it.
She was taking almost a dozen prescriptions.
That's probably why she made the card.
In case she was incapacitated, she wanted us to know what she's on so we don't push Blood pressure meds, arthritis meds, multiple antidepressant meds, and not one seizure medication.
No, this this doesn't add up.
She's got the doctor's name on it.
Excuse me, uh, we just found a medical card that belongs to the woman we just brought in.
- Great, I'll get it to - I don't know who this Dr.
Shaw is, but clearly he isn't paying attention to his patients.
This list is dangerous without any anti-seizure medication to balance her out.
She just drove into a bus shelter today and has a great case for medical negligence.
Maybe you should alert him.
- What? [GROWLING.]
So according to the competition's website, there are two components to this: the presentation Well, no problem there.
Tuesday's the cutest thing to ever hit the CFD.
And then there's the performance portion.
Commands, tricks, things to amuse and enhance fire safety demonstrations.
This is what I've been trying to tell Kidd.
She isn't exactly the best listener.
It's all under control.
One of Trudy's best friends, Denise, is a dog trainer.
Wait a minute, doesn't Denise hate you? We see the world differently.
However, this is right up her alley and if it makes me look good in Trudy's eyes to hire her, well, two birds, one stone.
Uh, don't you think you ought to run this by Kidd first? I think Kidd is gonna be happy we took the initiative.
Mm This is tougher than I thought it was gonna be.
We are never gonna be able to work together if we cannot put this behind us, Kelly.
Yeah, I agree.
So I've been throwing something together.
A little spreadsheet action on some places around your area.
Wow, you're not messing around.
Now what you're gonna wanna look for is a big backyard for grilling/entertaining, hardwood floors, two bedroom plus a home office, maybe? Brett.
You really know how to pick a partner, don't you? Uh, I don't Get Emily Foster and meet me in the briefing room now.
I-I don't blame him for filing a complaint.
Jim Shaw is a respected doctor at Lakeshore and you accuse him of medical negligence to a duty nurse? Chief Hatcher, in my defense, I know exactly what I know all about your medical background, it's irrelevant.
It gives you no right to disparage actual doctors.
The CFD won't stand for this so let me be clear, if this happens again, you won't be a paramedic.
Not here, not anywhere.
Chief, it took me months to find the right fit for 61.
Foster's a talented paramedic.
She's You're supposed to be the leader here.
- I'm sorry.
- No, I'm used to it.
My old partner used to lock horns with Hatcher all the time.
You could set your watch by it.
How'd that work out? He, uh, he invited her to lead a task force in Puerto Rico.
How would you describe your relationship with your dog? Friendly.
- Really terrific.
- Yeah, she's a sweetheart.
Wrong! Dogs aren't your friends, they aren't your children, they aren't your sweethearts.
They are animals, and they are looking for any sign of weakness in your voice, in your demeanor, in your body language to take advantage of.
Dominance is the key.
Firm leash corrections, bitter apple spray, you know it.
Negative reinforcement.
- They are not supposed to - Excuse me.
Uh, Kidd, this is Denise, she's the professional dog trainer I was telling you about.
Very close friends with Trudy.
Uh-huh, yeah.
Nice to meet you, Denise.
Uh, exactly how firm of a tug are we talking about with this leash correction thing? - Oh, boy.
- Well, here.
I'll show you.
- Here we go.
- Uh-huh.
Okay? Thank you for stopping by, uh, I think we got it from here, Denise.
- Excuse me? - You're fired.
Oh, let's not be rash.
Oh, we're beyond rash.
Get out of here, Denise.
Hey, don't worry, girl.
She's not gonna scare you like that again, okay? Look, uh, see I I had I will be training this sweet animal from now on and if see negative reinforcement again, you will be riding to calls on the outsides of your rigs.
That sounds like negative reinforcement.
Hey Brett, thanks for this.
Happy to do it.
What was that about? She's gonna help me find a new place.
There's no rush to move out.
Fish and houseguests.
Oh no, it's fine.
Seriously, it's been nice having you around.
You're barely there.
You go from shift to the boat and back to shift.
Ah, idle hands.
Well, look, if you want a cigar and chat about anything, I'm there.
Okay, maybe.
We'll see.
Okay, Riley, next we're gonna do what's called wet sanding.
Have you heard of that? No.
All right, this is a hand sander.
See the bucket? Mm-hmm.
We pre-soak the paper because we got to keep the hull wet while we work.
Okay, grab that sponge.
We'll wipe off the excess water.
Can I ask you a question? Yup.
Do you like my dad? Why? He's never here.
Yeah, well, I'm sure he's busy.
With Mandy.
Where's your mom? I don't remember her.
Kid, I don't know what to tell you.
You got some pretty tough cards dealt your way.
I know exactly how that feels.
What do you do about it? I'm still figuring that out but I'll let you know when I do.
Riley, driver's here.
Grab your book bag and let's go.
You think it's okay to talk to my son that way? Excuse me? I hired you to restore a boat.
If I needed a child counselor, I'd have a damn professional do it.
Okay? Dad! Terrell says he needs money.
Latte with skim milk, please.
Two of those.
Okay, I have one for you.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or dead, who would it be? St.
Oh, right.
I guess that No, I'm totally kidding.
No, uh, Stephen King.
What, really? Yeah, my dad used to leave Stephen King books lying around the house.
Picked up my first one when I was 12, "Pet Sematary," and I have been addicted ever since.
I would not have guessed that.
Well, stick around and you'll find out so much more.
- Hey, I have an idea.
- Yeah? You up for a detour? [DOOR OPENING.]
- Hello.
- Hi.
- Welcome.
- Oh, we're just looking.
Of course, make yourself at home.
Have a cookie.
- Hmm.
- And, um there's a gym in the building for your husband.
- Oh no, we're not - Yeah, we're just Okay, I'll let you guys look around.
Wow, this is an amazing view.
So what do you think? Countertops are nice, oh, I'd change those fixtures, though.
Great lighting, beautiful hardwood floors, good storage but for the asking price, this feels like a steal.
What was that for? You just looked all cute there house hunting.
It's for Casey.
I know, but the live version is just way better than watching it on HGTV.
Well, if there's a walk-in closet in the master, you're gonna see a side of me that might get embarrassing.
How are you guys doing? Great.
Excuse me, nurse? Hi, can you tell me where I can find Doctor Jim Shaw? Oh, sorry.
He isn't on call today.
Got it, thank you.
What about the room of a patient named Anita Grant? That's so sweet.
You didn't have to do that.
Just wanted to get you a little something and check on you and see how you've been since the accident.
I still don't remember much.
One second I was looking in my side view because some lady in a pickup was crowding me and then I felt weird, like I was having goosebumps up and down my side.
Next thing I know, I'm looking at you guys.
You look a lot better now, let me tell you.
How were the people at the bus stop? I-I feel terrible.
All on the mend, not one permanent injury.
Thank the good Lord for that.
Anita, can I ask you something? Your doctor, did he talk to you about your medication? No, I don't think so.
Um I saw your medical card.
Oh good, that's exactly why I made it.
Yes, uh, but Look, I don't mean to alarm you, but if your doctor is prescribing all those medicines together, my opinion is My opinion is you need to find a new doctor.
Hey! Took a look at the boat this morning.
Yeah? Let's just say I'm not happy with the work.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
Not sure what you were doing.
The sanding's uneven, the varnish looks like it was thrown up there with a spray can.
Yeah, maybe you're just not used to high-end jobs.
I get it, you work down-market.
It's it's my mistake.
All I can say is, um, I hope you're better at fighting fires than restoring boats.
- Watch yourself.
- Dad! No, Riley, it's good you see this.
This is how you handle business.
Recognize a bad hire, make a change as soon as you can.
You can keep the deposit.
Anything more, I'm not paying.
You know what? I don't want your money.
Sorry about cluttering up your place with all this smoke-filled junk.
Yeah, I was gonna say there needs to be some rules.
Oh, ha-ha.
You got a to-go mug in there? - No.
- All right.
Then you get the one that Shay gave me.
Hey, after shift, what say you and me drive to Detroit and catch the Hawks-Red Wings? - Yeah? - Yeah.
What about the boat? Eh, owner turned into a jackass.
Went right into the "life's too short" column.
Anyway, kind of glad to be done with it.
Frees me up for more hang time.
- Sexy pants.
- Thanks.
It's open! Hey, Cindy made a batch of these muffins you rave about.
I told her, you know, I'd look at them and, they'd all be gone, so.
She make them on her own or you ask her to make them? Nah, she just you I mean, I-I I might've suggested.
Herrmann, will you please stop fussing over me? Okay? Seriously, I'm fine.
Hey whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa! Hey, hey, about face, you can leave the muffins.
Thank you.
Hey, what's this? Uh, a dog training bible.
That has got all the secrets on how to transform Tuesday into the perfect show dog.
You're really taking this competition seriously, huh? Well, fire safety is serious business.
Or you might say that you're throwing yourself into this because you don't wanna deal with the Severide of it all.
All right, um, eat your muffins.
I'm gonna go knock the ice off the windshield and meet you in the truck.
Gimme ten minutes.
All right.
Just the guy I was looking for.
Wait till you see the selects I came up with while we were off shift.
All right, this one's in Hyde Park.
Three bedroom, top floor, parking's included.
I may have popped over there and it's not ready to move in yet, but it's pretty nice.
I'm not really a fan of big windows.
Oh, yeah, no, totally get it.
Um, this one used to be a school that was converted into residential condos.
And again, I might've done a little drive-by and it is nice! Hmm, shower's a little small.
- Huh.
- Right? Oh, I mean, I guess I guess it's average.
I didn't really Okay, how about this one? It has a fireplace and it's in Millennium Park.
- Maybe.
- Yeah? Yeah, yeah, uh, send me the details and I'll fly by.
- Whoops.
- Hey, Captain.
I must've left half a dozen messages for Doctor Shaw and I still haven't heard back.
- Oh, I'm sure it's just - Could we maybe swing by Lakeshore? If he's not taking my calls, then I need to get in his face and make him see where I'm coming from.
Um, respectfully, of course.
I'll just explain, not accuse.
Thanks for this.
It'll work out, you'll see.
No, no, no, no, no.
Come over here.
Tuesday, come.
Good girl, and sit? Sit.
Will you sit, please? Want to walk with me and inspect the rigs? Yeah, sure.
Hey, hey, hey.
Now we're gonna try drop.
Okay, Tuesday? Hey, come here.
Okay, can you drop for me? Drop! Drop? No, Tuesday.
Drop down.
What are the odds of getting Denise back? Drop for me, Tuesday! Come on, Tu You know, maybe it's the treats that I'm giving her.
You know, the "Dog Bible" says that they should be high value.
Maybe these aren't cutting it.
What's high value mean? She's a dog.
She'll eat anything.
Yeah, but when I try to give her medication, she wouldn't take it unless I slather it in peanut butter.
No, I'm telling you.
Like, she'd eat a rock if I put peanut butter on it.
Won't you? - Madame.
- Oh, why thank you.
All right.
Drop! And roll! - Oh! - Unbelievable! [CHEERING.]
What'd I tell ya? We might actually win this thing.
That work on kids too? - Oh! - Way to go, kid.
Good job.
Foster? I know, I'm just here to explain.
- Doctor Shaw? - You're looking at him.
I'm Emily Foster, the paramedic you snitched out to my chief.
Excuse me? Anita Grant, bus driver, does that ring a bell? I have no idea what you're talking Your patient was dangerously overmedicated.
That woman trusts you, you were her doctor.
You were supposed to put her health and her care first and foremost.
Not pump her so full of drugs that she has a seizure while driving.
She deserves better and that's on you.
Ambulance 61, Truck 81, Engine 51, Squad 3 Report me again, I don't care.
What you're doing is not right.
Structure fire at 3386 North Tahoma Avenue.
Hey, that's Boyd's place! - Who? - The boat I've been restoring.
That's his address.
Severide, how many live here? Father and son, son's ten.
They have a boat in the garage.
Get in there and do a primary search.
- Copy that.
- Hurry, get a line in there! Copy that, Chief! - Casey! - Yup.
- Clear the house.
- 81, let's go.
Check every square inch! Copy! [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC.]
Riley! Riley! Anyone here? Riley! [CREAKING.]
Get down! [GROANING.]
Let's keep looking.
Come on.
The house is clear.
- What is this? - Oh, my God.
You the homeowner? - Yeah.
- You know where your son is? Yeah, he's at school.
How how did this happen? All occupants accounted for.
Severide, Cruz, evacuate.
Copy that.
Herrmann, let's get this fire out.
Did you did you say Kelly Severide? - You did this! - Hey, hey! - You did this! - Hey! This son of a bitch lit up my boat! He did this! You're going to jail, asshole.
Look, I don't know what you're trying to pull.
Back the hell up.
Enough! Casey, get him out of here.
Come on, back up.
You, over there until I tell you otherwise.
Fire's out, Chief.
- Copy that.
Good, the cops are here.
Hey, I'm the homeowner.
I know who did this.
He's right there.
He started the fire! That man right there.
How long are they gonna keep grilling me, Chief? There's a third detective here asking me more questions.
The truth is on your side, Kelly, don't forget that.
Doesn't matter how many people you have to tell.
You know what I think? I think the boy lit his own boat on fire.
I think he wanted this reaction.
He's already come after me in front of his son, made a show of it.
That's not enough? Kelly.
Come on.
This is beyond.
So you weren't upset with Boyd for firing you? That's a lot of money.
Like I told the first officer, the second, and now you, I've been on shift all day.
Ask 30 people here who've seen me.
- Boss.
- Tom, thanks for coming.
I'm Captain Van Meter, Office of Fire Investigation.
Detective Johnson, Major Crimes.
Did you find evidence of arson? Uh, the source of the fire was a pile of rags soaked in oil-based wood stain which makes a perfect setup for spontaneous combustion.
Meaning? The oil stain cures and has nowhere to off gas within the pile of rags, so it generates its own heat and fwoom.
How long would it take for this spontaneous combustion to occur? Anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.
So theoretically, someone could have planted the pile of rags in the morning, headed off to shift, and waited for the inevitable.
I didn't leave any rags out.
- You all right? - Yeah.
What happened? They told me to get a lawyer.
That's unacceptable.
You want me to call someone? I'm thinking it won't be necessary.
Well, nice working with you, Brett.
I just heard from Doctor Shaw.
About that Informed me that you caught a prescription error that the hospital made with one of his patients.
May well have saved her life.
No one else caught the fact that she was overmedicated.
I take a hard line, but I can admit when I made a mistake and clearly I owe you an apology.
Uh, I don't I mean, you don't have No, I do, and I'm sorry.
What just happened? You kicked ass, that's what happened.
Excuse me, um Is Kelly here? [SOLEMN MUSIC.]
I started the fire.
I know.
How did you know? I've told you a dozen times how dangerous it is to leave oily rags lying around, how flammable they are, and I've never once seen you leave them out.
I hate him.
Here, let's grab a seat.
The way he acts towards you, towards everyone, that's his problem.
It's not your problem.
What is your problem is how you respond to it.
And like I told you before, I didn't have that part figured out.
I don't.
But I do know this isn't the way and I know it's not you.
The good news is no one got hurt.
Hey, we got lucky.
Oh, gosh.
Riley, look at me.
We got lucky, but going forward isn't about luck.
It isn't about your old man or how he acts, it's about you.
It's how about you decide to respond.
Choose to be better than him.
Good man.
Now we have something really hard we have to do.
I did.
I told my dad.
We're gonna get him counseling.
I assure you.
You choose.
Riley, get in the car.
You coming out tonight? First, I think I need to swing by Lakeshore, toss a couple of "my bads" at the doctor I lit up.
- Could we try this again? - Yeah.
- Emily Foster.
- Jim Shaw, pleasure.
You know, just so you know, I do care about my patients.
I'm confused, why did you rat me out to the chief in the first place? I didn't, my ER nurse made the call after you gave her Anita's medical card.
Apparently, you had some pretty choice words to say about me after you thought I was her primary caregiver.
Me? No.
I mean, okay, guilty.
Okay, not a big deal.
No, nurses get protective.
You know, Anita Grant had seen five different doctors in the last eight months.
Clearly, none of them bothered to look at her card, but the reason my name was there was that I was the first physician she saw.
I would never prescribe someone that many medications.
I Honestly, I'm I'm grateful that you caught the mistake.
And a little impressed.
There are not a whole lot of paramedics that pay that much attention.
That's kind of my thing.
I can see that.
Anyway, I apologize for coming at you.
I will check first before I bring both barrels.
Not a problem, I understand.
Hey wait, um, I got a question for ya, um [UPBEAT MUSIC.]
All right would you like to get dinner sometime? - [CHEERING.]
And what do we do when we hear this howl? ALL: Get out of the house! [CHUCKLES.]
All right, next up we have Tuesday the Dalmatian from Firehouse 51.
Okay, you're with me.
All right.
Okay, all right.
Stop! Good girl.
Go, down.
Okay, just come on.
Tuesday, Tuesday! No! No! Oh, my God! No! [THUDDING.]
That dog is mauling the girl! [SCREAMING.]
No, no, no! The dog is not the dog is not mauling the girl.
- Tomorrow night - Mm, let me guess.
"Property Brothers" marathon.
What's this? Stephen King is speaking at Northwestern.
No way.
If you bring a book, he will sign it.
- Marry me.
I didn't mean that that was, uh that was, uh No, I know.
I'm gonna go get you another bottle.
Brett, that house in Millennium Park, uh What? The house you sent me to look at.
I don't think it's going to work out.
Really? I thought it had everything you wanted.
It it's not the house, uh, I think I'm gonna stay with Severide for a while.
He'd never admit it, but he he needs someone looking after him.
As a fellow parent, if I saw some strange dog trying to lick my kid's face off, I'd be a little pissed too.
Yeah, yeah, I might've gotten a little too into that.
Hey, you know you keep telling me that you're fine and I hear ya.
Everybody deals with breakups differently but if you're not totally fine and you're just trying to find your way through it, hey it's okay too.
Doesn't make you any less badass.
So maybe I'm not completely over it.
But I will be.
