Station 19 (2018) s02e13 Episode Script

The Dark Night

1 - Previously on "Station 19" - This is Jenna.
I work with Tanner and I'm the best second date he's ever gonna have.
MAYA: What happened between us the other day can never happen again.
Hawaii Air runs a 7:45 flight to Kauai.
Let's hop it.
I'm sticking to a very tight schedule.
Home, Medic One studies, here.
I'm even doing nightly videochats with Miranda and Tuck.
We violated policy.
So now you're having second thoughts after.
If we can't even fight and make-up, then we won't survive.
ANDY: Everything seems perfectly fine in the light.
Wait, you went where? Hawaii.
Here, this is for you.
And for you, young man.
Chocolate covered.
Very delicious.
The world is bright and happy and delicious - Can I have some? - When you eat your actual dinner.
Mom won't let you keep coming to eat with me if all I do is fill you with sweets - So you just up and went to Hawaii? - Yes he did! TRAVIS: Hawaii Hawaii.
With the luaus and the drinks inside the pineapples I even got to climb a dormant volcano It gives you some perspective on firefighting, let me tell you.
Sorry, it's just a little hard to compute you relaxing.
Wearing shorts.
Flip flops, and Did you put on one of those flower leis? But you don't know what's around every corner.
- What is all this? - Oh, my dad got Lei'd.
[LAID] [LAUGHS] She She, uh She means a necklace.
You know, of of flowers.
The trip was a very spontaneous decision One I do not regret.
I'm all for spontaneous! You can't know what's coming next Miller.
I did it all by myself - What's wrong with you? - I can't do it anymore.
My mother's list of possible dates is endless.
How does she know this many people? How does she persuade them all to go on these dates? It's like waterboarding.
But with small-talk and twinkly lights.
I don't think you understand what waterboarding is TUCK: I don't either.
What is it? - Uh - [CHUCKLES] Hey, what You want one of these now, actually? I am exhausted.
I need it to stop.
ANDY: Can't you just make it stop by saying, Mom, I am stopping this now.
You haven't met Dean's mom.
It's all or nothing with her.
We struck a deal.
Now, either I hold up my end of the bargain, or there there is no "or.
" Sounds like the only way to win is to bring home a living, breathing girlfriend, on the list, or not.
I-If your mom's that by the books, she's not gonna encourage you to cheat, right? So, like a, fake girlfriend? You're kind of small.
But your ideas are big Don't Don't encourage him, Tuck.
I'll do it.
I'm an Olympian.
I'm hilarious.
I've got a killer smile.
You'd be lucky to have me.
Turn this down, and you're missing out.
The light may go out [ELECTRICITY BUZZES] It looks like the blackouts have made it to this neck of the woods.
I'm done.
Can I go? Um, o-okay.
I did it all by myself Excuse me.
and leave you I did all by myself in the dark.
Hey, hey, hey, yo.
It's It's It's been ages since we hung out at the station.
Come on, stay a little longer.
To sit around and listen to you and your work friends talk about stuff that you don't want me to listen to? - No thanks.
- Well, okay, well you and me, then.
We can hang, you know? Let's get your mom to pick you up a little later.
I can't.
I have a debate competition tomorrow and I need to prep.
You'd know that if you weren't too busy to answer the phone when Mom and I call you.
- Everyone's always too busy - No, no, no, I-I-I'm not I'm not too busy.
All right? I'm just I'm just juggling a lot, you know, all at once.
Working shifts, trying to study for Medic One.
The Uh You remember, I told you about that Yeah, it's what you always do.
You find some new job thing to fill up your time and not actually be there for me and Mom.
- Tuck - [CAR HORN HONKS] - My ride's here.
- Come Come on, just stay stay a little [DOOR CLOSES] Man [DOOR OPENS] Uh, um - Can Can I help you? - Yeah.
Is Lieutenant Herrera around? RIPLEY: Here you are.
Stopped by your office but you weren't there Generator's flashing the fault alarm warning.
That's not good with these blackouts, gotta fix it.
The manual's here somewhere Is this a social visit? - [ELECTRICITY BUZZES] - Routine.
Just dropping off the new guidelines for firefighter pension benefits.
Wanted to make sure you knew about the changes.
- Okay.
- Also wanted to say thank you.
For our talk the other day.
Really appreciated it.
Ah, didn't see you at dinner, Captain! Wanted to give you a little something from my trip.
- Thank you.
- Aloha, Chief.
Your trip? You know, I can't remember the last time I took a vacation.
Here you go.
- Thank you.
- [ELECTRICITY BUZZES] Are you looking for the generator manual? Yes.
Do you know where it is? - I-I know where one copy is.
- Fantastic where? Do you think you could stick around a little longer? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING] [GASPS] Captain Herrera Aloha'd you, too? Yeah.
Seems like he had an amazing time.
[WHISPERING] You know what? Maybe you and I should try to get away somewhere [WHISPERING] Oh, right.
Like that's a possibility given work, plus secrecy, plus all the other strings involved.
I know.
You're right.
But we could take a fake vacation, in our brains.
To Colorado? - Or Vancouver.
- [GASPS] We could get a little ski chalet.
- With a fireplace - I'm sorry.
In your fantasy, you want me in a snowsuit? There are things called beaches.
And swimwear.
You'd look sexy in a snowsuit.
Okay, just so you know, in my fantasy, you're shirtless.
All the time.
Oh yeah? Oh definitely yeah.
[BOTH CHUCKLE, LIGHTS BUZZ] Sorry to just drop by unannounced, I'm sure you're busy.
No, no, no! Glad to see you, how's training been going? Kinda bad, actually.
There's one other woman in my class at the Academy.
My friend Laura We're, really close.
And she quit today.
I met my best friend in training.
I know how much we relied on each other Still do.
[CHUCKLES] Are you okay? Not really.
You know, she's kinda my rock, you know? Did you ever get to a place - where you thought about quitting? - Ooh.
- Don't tell me you are - DISPATCH: 19, respond.
Minor in possible medical distress in building without power Uh, you've gotta go.
I can see myself out Nope.
Uh uh.
Come with me.
Gotta love these blackouts.
What, you scared of the dark? I got rid of my night-lights a long time ago, Herrera.
Yeah, uh huh.
You're not as tough as you look.
Hey, listen, you cool if I bring somebody along on this call? - Excuse me? - Uh, she's the cadet I introduced you to before.
She's here, and she's kind of having a tough time right now.
I feel like being out on a call, experiencing what we do first hand SULLIVAN: We're not gonna throw a civilian into the mix, okay? Especially not when there's a minor involved - and a blackout - She's not just a civilian.
She's an FD cadet.
There's no time to debate this, Herrera.
Boots on the ground experience is the best way for her to learn.
And we do ride-alongs all the time.
- I don't appreciate being blindsided.
- I'll stay on her.
The whole time.
She's my responsibility.
Fine to observe, only.
I speak a little Nepalese.
Learned it when I backpacked through Kathmandu.
That sounds made up.
Some parents might find that impressive I would.
Why are you still on this? Even if Olympic Gold is not your thing, I can cook.
I'm organized.
Not one single cavity.
I absorbed my twin in utero.
That makes me a winner.
You will literally turn anything into a competition, won't you? Second place is just the first loser.
- There's no competition.
- Hold up.
Go back to the twin thing Even if I entertain your ridiculous scheme, it's doomed before it even begins because everybody knows that you do not "do" relationships.
Everybody? Who's everybody? That's not true.
How many years have we been working again? What does that have to do with anything? And in that time, how many exclusive relationships have you had that lasted more than a couple of weeks? [SIREN WAILING] Whatever.
You're the one looking for a fake girlfriend.
I'm not looking so much as you volunteered.
All right, I'll do it.
You'll do what? I mean, I know I'm married and all, but I would be honored to be your fake boyfriend.
[LAUGHS] All right.
Oh man.
The whole block is out.
[BRAKES HISS] - What do we got? - We've got a missing 6-year-old child, name is Penelope Hayes.
Goes by Penny.
for approximately two hours already.
She's at high risk for potential medical assistance.
She has really bad asthma.
This is her brother, Xander, he called it in.
Yeah, after I lost her.
We were playing hide and seek, and then the power went out.
That's when I called you guys.
You got PD units looking already? OFFICER PRICE: Yes, but we got a lot of ground to cover XANDER: Our parents finally let me babysit.
She doesn't have her inhaler, and when she gets scared, she starts to not breathe.
She's all alone in the dark somewhere, and she's probably so scared.
Do you guys play this game a lot? Does Penny have any favorite hiding spots? Sure, yeah, the basement, Ms.
Kennedy's apartment 'cause it always smells like cookies - Okay so - Yeah, the the parking garage, too.
The stairs.
Mailboxes, laundry room, and over by the storage area.
Great, so the entire building.
Thanks, Xander.
We're on it.
All right, listen up.
Penny is susceptible to severe asthma attacks and in danger every minute she's alone without her medication.
The clock is already ticking.
We've got a building with five floors plus basement, over 150 people living inside We got to split up to cover as much ground as possible.
Hughes, Montgomery, Warren, you got the top floors.
Bishop, Miller, you're with me.
Gibson, Herrera, you take the lower floors plus basement.
- Got it.
- Copy that.
- Herrera? - Yes, Captain? Watch your cadet.
No freelancing.
Understood? Yes, sir.
Okay, this is already hella fun.
ALL: Penny! KAT: Are you here? JACK: If you can hear us, come out, sweetie.
- Penelope? - Hey! Penelope? Excuse me.
Has anyone seen a little girl? - Can you hear us? - Penelope? - Just call out, okay? - Hey, Penny! Make sure you check small crawlspaces, stairwells - kids will hide anywhere.
- Penny? VIC: Hey, Seattle Fire Department.
I'm looking for a little girl, 6 years old.
- Penny? - Penny! WOMAN: [MUFFLED] Help! Help me! - Hang tight! Help is on the way! - Please, hurry! Help! - Hello? - The power went out.
My dad's life support system shut off.
I found him like this.
Please, you have to help.
Please don't let my dad die.
No pulse.
I'll take over.
You know how to use that? Yeah.
How long have you been doing CPR? I don't know, maybe 15 to 20 minutes? I'm gonna need you to switch on my radio.
- [RADIO CHIRPS] - Warren to 19.
VIC: Copy Warren.
Did you find Penny? Uh, no.
But I do need some help.
Apartment 515.
I have an unconscious male in cardiac arrest.
I need a jump bag, a Lifepak, and a portable generator STAT.
- TRAVIS: Copy, on our way.
- [RADIO CLICKS] That's it, slow and steady.
Help is coming.
My dad's name is Elliot.
He has stage four lung cancer, and he's terminal, and he doesn't want to die in a hospital, so we set up a home hospice for him And the ventilator? Tumors grew around his phrenic nerves - And paralyzed his chest.
- Dad? Come back, okay? Please? This This can't be it, okay? Today is not the day - [DOOR OPENS] - and it's not time, not like this.
Please just come back, daddy.
Stage four terminal lung cancer.
He's been down at least 20.
I can take that from here.
TRAVIS: Okay, let's get the Lifepak hooked up, open fluids, and set up the generator so we can get his ventilator up and running.
- Penny? - Can you hear us? So we're searching for a kid, there's no power, no trail, what's our first priority? Keep calling loudly, so even if she might not see us, - she can still hear us.
- Very good.
Now, Kat, I want you to be our time keeper.
Track how long we've been searching, check in with me every five minutes.
The longer we search, the worse it looks for Penny.
- What's with the tag-a-long? - She needs a little guidance.
- I'm guiding.
- And running into - [GRUNTS] Ooh, sorry, sir.
- Hey.
- You all right? - No, I'm stuck in the dark.
When's the power coming back on? The electric company's working on it.
You seen a little girl? She's about 3 feet tall, 45 pounds? No, I have not.
And like I told those other guys, that kid needs to learn to stay in her own apartment so that maybe someone can start to focus on getting our power back on.
JENNA: And like we told you, the kid's our job, not your power.
Go light a candle or something Or, maybe just turn on a flashlight.
- It's less of a fire hazard.
- Great.
Uh, I didn't know you guys were working this call together.
Yeah, we covered that end of this floor we can cover the rest if you guys want to move on - to a different floor - I'd feel more comfortable doing the floor ourselves, too, since the vic's asthmatic, likely gonna need medical assistance - Oh, we can handle ourselves.
- So can we.
KAT: Why don't we split up and pair up? One cop and one firefighter? We just learned that technique in training it's within protocol.
Can't argue with that logic.
All right, good thinking, Newbie.
- Tanner, you're with me.
- Oh, um JACK: Penny? All right.
System should be powering up.
- [VENTILATOR WHIRRING] - Stop bagging.
[MACHINE BEEPS] There's a pulse.
It's weak, but it's there.
Let's make sure you're okay, too.
MILA: I'm fine.
It's my dad just help my dad.
You were doing compressions for a long time, that's very strenuous work.
Follow my light? Okay.
Just gonna get you checked out and make sure everything's in normal range, make sure you're not in shock Is that thing powerful enough to keep my dad alive, through this blackout? It'll keep his system running for a while.
Take a deep breath for me.
VIC: His Pulse ox is 92.
How are you feeling about this? If he was without oxygen when the power went out, it depends on how long Mila took to find him it's hard to say.
Could mean any number of things.
Bad things.
Brain damage things.
So, you guys really like the stars, huh? MILA: My dad's an astronomer.
When I was a kid, we would fall asleep in the backyard, looking up at the stars, just picking out constellations for hours, sometimes.
And then when he got too sick to go outside, I put the maps up to to bring the stars to him.
BEN: Yeah, but, uh, brain damage means he might never regain consciousness.
His heart rate isn't improving.
MILA: He's gonna wake up, right? He He has to wake up.
We're doing our best.
Yeah, I am not feeling good about this.
He's back.
Be careful.
- Okay.
Careful, careful.
- Oh, my God, Dad? MILA: Oh, Dad.
It's okay, they got you back.
- We got you.
- You're back.
You're back.
Look, you're here, and I am right here, too.
Elliot, your life support system went down, but you have a very smart daughter.
She called out to us, and we were able to bring you back.
- [GRUNTS] - Yeah.
[CHUCKLES] There you go, perfect.
- Nice, calm breaths.
- Daddy, thank God.
[WEAKLY] Why the hell didn't you let me die? MILA: Dad, you and I both know that this is not the way you want to go.
Okay, what what was that last one again? Um a vat of acid? Stranded in space.
Well, see, that one seems almost peaceful.
But the spacesuit is filled with bees.
[LAUGHS] He He does this.
He He likes to come up with all the ways he could die that are so much worse than how he's actually dying.
[CHUCKLES] TRAVIS: Uh, sorry to cut in on the space bees, but, Mila, do you know what medications your dad's on? We don't want to give him anything that could cause a bad reaction.
Oh, boy.
What isn't he on? - I'll show you.
- [MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY] - [RADIO CHIRPS] - Northwest, stairwell is clear.
Let's double back.
So that's your partner back there? Yeah.
I'm a little worried things might be - getting weird between her and Andy.
- Why? Well, I broke things off with Andy - in order to start things with Jenna - Whoa, whoa.
Why'd you let them get paired up then? You agreed to the pairs before I could say anything! Oh man.
No question.
Things are gonna get weird.
ANDY: So, what's the first thing we need to do when we find Penny? Give her a head-to-toe medical assessment, make sure she's alert and reactive - 28 minutes, by the way.
- Hey, have you seen a little girl? - No, sorry.
- Okay.
JENNA: God, where is this kid? I can't imagine how scared she must be - Penny? - Penny, you there? Hey, have you seen a little girl? - [KNOCKING ON DOORS] - So, what are you, like, FD in training or something? I'm at the Academy right now.
Yeah, trying a little woman-to-woman mentoring to give Kat a leg up on all the bros.
We've got an Academy too.
There are so many bros.
- [GIRL SCREAMING] - Penny?! Penny! Penny! We may have to kick it in Seattle PD, open up! False alarm? We're sorry! It was a really scary part of the movie the guy had a knife, and he jumped out, and Oh, just glad you're all safe.
Hey, listen, have you seen a little girl? Her name's Penny? She's gone missing, she's either hiding or lost Oh yeah.
That kid's always around.
She likes to play in the basement Basement.
- Thanks.
- Yeah.
ANDY: Time check? - 30 minutes.
- All right, let's go.
Oh, um, looks like you got a kink in your IV line here.
I'll just adjust this.
Mila thinks I'm joking About wanting to die now.
I'm not.
I make jokes.
All the time, about dying.
The ridiculous ways, but Have you talked to her about this? You saw her.
It'd kill her.
Before it killed me.
[CHUCKLES] Um I-It can be really hard to talk to your kids about stuff, especially when it's something that really matters, you know? My son was visiting with me today, and he's so upset about this new thing I'm trying to do, but I can't bring myself to be honest with him about why I'm doing it.
- Ah, I know my good days - [INHALES SHARPLY] Are behind me.
I hurt so much.
I'm so tired.
But how do I tell my child I'm ready to go? [MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY] Um If If that's how you really feel Have you taken any legal steps? Do you have a DNR? - Yes.
- MILA: No.
Absolutely no.
He does not.
PRUITT: Oh, one of these circuits is overloaded.
I can figure this out.
You should go home.
I imagine you, uh, have a Hawaiian travel companion waiting up for you? [CHUCKLES] I'm happy for you.
I didn't realize you were seeing anyone Reggie's really something.
She doesn't worry about what anybody thinks.
She just figures out what she wants and goes for it.
Sounds simple.
Starting to learn it can be.
[SIGHS] They asked if I could have my previous boss, uh, fill out a recommendation.
And if there's anything my trip inspired me to do, it's not to sit around, waiting for things to happen to me.
I'm gonna make things happen for myself.
You know you're vastly overqualified for this.
Big fish, little pond.
Wouldn't mind a little adoration here and there.
You just got back.
You sure you don't want to kick back, put your feet up instead? Come on.
Do a big fish a solid.
MILA: He's never actually told me he wants it.
If anything, he avoids the topic and just starts spouting off some crazy death of the week.
- So, there's no DNR? - I mean, kind of.
Well, we drew one up I'm his power of attorney but he never once asked me to sign it - [COUGHS] - He's dehydrated.
I'm pushing fluids.
[COUGHING CONTINUES] BEN: Elliot, you do understand that, without a DNR, we are required to take extraordinary measures - to keep you alive? - [COUGHS] Now, you have set this whole place up to spend your last days in peace, and if we take extraordinary measures, that means intervention, transportation to a hospital, procedures, machines.
So, to be clear, that is what you get without a signed DNR.
Excuse us, uh, for a moment.
[QUIETLY] What are you doing? Pushing a patient into a DNR is illegal.
BEN: [QUIETLY] I am not pushing.
I am simply stating the facts so that he can make a decision for himself.
We are here to help, not guide decisions about life or death.
His daughter is legally in charge here.
Elliot hasn't requested that she sign anything.
End of story.
Okay, you don't know what he really wants, or what he's been trying to tell her - That's not our problem - Trav, he's stage four.
You know his condition's only gonna get worse.
The cancer's already taken its toll, - he can't even move his limbs.
- [SIGHS] And the strain his body's already endured today alone Okay, maybe, as a surgeon, the lines were different, but you and I, we do not get an opinion on this.
As long as there's no DNR, it is our job to do what we can to prevent death.
That's what we're gonna do.
Understood? Excuse me.
Have you seen a little girl running through here? - [KNOCKING ON DOORS] - Maybe hiding somewhere? No.
Sullivan to Station 19.
Anything yet? ANDY: We're about to search the basement.
We've hit the 40-minute mark.
- Damn it.
- [GROANS] Sir, are you feeling okay? A little nauseous.
I've been eating ice cream - for the past two hours.
- Respect.
But my freezer lost power, so, what am I supposed to do? Throw it all out? - Mmm.
- [GROANS] He's altered.
MAYA: Sir, are you feeling any other symptoms? Worst brain freeze headache of my life.
And I feel a little dizzy I don't think this is brain freeze.
KAT: Didn't think this building could get any darker, but now that we're in the basement - it's darker.
- JENNA: Is it possible we missed her? Either that, or she's not in the building any longer.
We should alert PD to amp up their perimeter search [LOUD KNOCKS] Wait.
Did you guys hear that? Penny? [DOOR CREAKS OPEN] - [MUFFLED, WEAKLY] Help me - Penny? - Please? - Penny! We're here now.
We've got you, okay? Damn it.
It won't open.
[STRAINING] It must've locked when the power went out.
It's okay.
You'll be okay.
Has she been trapped in the washer this whole time, - because, if so - She's running out of air.
Have a seat right here.
Give me that.
Do you smell that? Graham, do you have a natural gas stove? Were you cooking something recently? I was making pasta when the power went out SULLIVAN: Here we go.
[SNIFFING] [EXHALES DEEPLY] [DETECTOR BEEPING] His pulse is weak, but steady.
Skin's a little clammy.
Short of breath crackling too.
[EXHALES SHAKILY] The stove appears to be fine, but guys.
- [DETECTOR BEEPING] - This whole place is filled with gas.
- [RADIO CHIRPS] - ANDY: 19, this is Herrera.
We found the girl.
I need every extraction tool you have and all the hands you can spare in the basement.
Repeat, we found Penny She's trapped, and we need to get her out of here, right now! - Anyone copy? - [RADIO CHIRPS] in the basement.
Repeat - [STATIC, RADIO CHIRPS] - JACK: Herrera, say again.
RYAN: Must be because she's in the basement.
- [STATIC] - Need a rotary saw, halligans - and sawzall, does anyone copy? - [RADIO CHIRPS] This is Gibson, I read you.
I'm close to the truck.
I'll head back for the tools now.
- What's the reading? - Same.
MAYA: I checked the entire apartment, it's not a fluke.
There's a gas leak somewhere, and it's big It could be the boiler, or the blackout shut the power off of something - Regardless, we got to get out of here.
- [RADIO CHIRPS] ANDY: Copy, Gibson.
Hurry with those power tools.
- Over.
- Wait, wait, wait, wait.
No, no.
No power tools.
Do not use those.
The building has a gas leak.
We don't know how big it is.
One spark could set this whole building off.
- Do you hear me, Herrera? - [STATIC] Herrera?! We got to evacuate the entire building.
- Starting with this guy.
- We'll call the gas company, have them shut off the gas to the building and get somebody to shut off the main gas valve.
This is Captain Sullivan to all units.
We discovered a dangerous natural gas leak.
There's a serious risk of explosion.
This building needs to be evacuated immediately.
Every floor.
Every apartment.
Do you copy, Herrera? Get him to the Aid Car right now and start evacuations.
- On it.
- On it.
- Herrera, do you copy? - [STATIC] It's just a few more minutes.
We'll get you out soon.
Penny? Penny! Oh, she's looking worse.
[STRAINED] Stupid industrial washers.
Oh thank God over here! We've got everything, the rotary saw But did you hear Sullivan's orders? If we cause a spark boom.
Penny is suffocating in there.
These aren't normal machines.
We got to get in there, fast.
It's worth the risk.
SULLIVAN: No it's not.
Stand down, Herrera.
We don't know how big the leak is or how long it's been going.
Too many lives are at risk, - this whole building could blow - We have to get in there, fast.
We will! But not with that.
Everybody else, get out.
Go, go, go! Help with the evac, now.
That includes you, Kat.
Observation time's over.
But I can help.
I've disassembled equipment in training Do you understand the danger you're in? This isn't a drill! Go! We got to do this carefully.
And fast.
You better keep up.
If you need assistance, look for the police officer or firefighter in your area and they will help you exit.
RYAN: Extinguish all candles, matches, or any type of open flame.
Open up please! There's a gas leak.
[MUFFLED] You need to evacuate the building! ANDY: [STRAINING] A little further ELLIOT: What's happening? Our Captain just ordered a full scale evacuation.
- VIC: We're moving you now.
- We know it's not ideal, but none of us can stay.
Exposure to a gas leak - is harmful for everyone.
- MILA: Oh.
Um, well, will he be okay with the machines, and We're gonna have to put your dad on a portable ventilator.
Get him on a gurney and down to our ambulance.
Then to the nearest hospital, probably Grey-Sloan Memorial At this point, that's our only choice.
Okay, um, this is good, this is good.
Dad, they are gonna help you, okay? The hospital will know what you might need, and I got to get your extra pajamas.
[QUIETLY] No hospital BEN: We might lose you on the way though.
Without a DNR, just to be clear, we are gonna have to resuscitate you Warren.
He has a right to know his situation.
His situation is the same as it is for all of us.
- We need to leave.
- VIC: Hey.
Both of you, this arguing is not helping.
Somebody help me move this generator.
No ambulance.
MILA: Do I need to bring his medications too? - TRAVIS: Yes.
Yes, you should.
- I've got the portable ventilator ready, but it's gonna be a trick to get down all those stairs.
How long ago did Sullivan call the evac? Too long.
We should be moving already.
I'm not going anywhere! [EXPLOSION] [MUFFLED EXPLOSION] - [RADIO CHIRPS] - Herrera to 19 what was that?! - [RADIO CHIRPS] - Flare up, third floor, attacking now.
I think we'll get it out, but there's a big chance it's already jumping floors.
Gas will make it travel faster.
- You still in the basement? - Copy that! We're almost out! [LOCK BREAKS] - Irregular pulse.
- We gotta move.
Let's go, let's go, let's go.
- She's not breathing.
- She needs oxygen.

VIC: I'm sorry, I know this is the very worst moment, but we're out of time.
We have to go.
If If I sign the DNR, that means No extraordinary measures.
So he doesn't have to go in an ambulance? He doesn't have to go to the hospital? No.
Not if he doesn't want to.

- Thank you.
[KNOCKS ON DOOR] I-I snapped at you, I apologize.
This call did not go how I had hoped.
I wanted to get you excited about all this, not put you in danger.
Are you kidding? This was incredible! I mean, that kid in there is a living breathing kid who was not living or breathing just a few minutes ago.
That's true.
Hey, do me a favor.
Uh, let Miller over there check you out for good measure? Hey.
Your Cadet got a real baptism by fire Whew! She did.
In a lot of ways.
Her best friend quit the Academy today.
Really shook her up.
I probably don't say this enough but, I am so glad I have you.
- You did good today.
- We all did.
Just glad the fire's under control now.
I feel like you and I should get a drink sometime.
You know, badass to badass.
- I could use one right now, in fact.
- [BOTH LAUGH] So they're friends now? Yeah.
Looks that way.
Good luck with that, huh? [SIGHS] Mm.
- Come in? Things have been different, between us, since the Aid Car.
We're friends.
Can Can I say we're friends? - Yes.
- Well, just because we're friends, doesn't mean that I can take liberties.
Like I did last night.
I shouldn't have pushed to bring Kat on the call.
She didn't belong there.
You knew it.
I pushed anyway, and And I agreed to the arrangement.
That wasn't on you.
And I think it's great that you want to teach, mentor.
The Academy needs more hands-on mentors like you.
- I put Kat in danger.
- This job puts us all in danger.
She knew what she was signing up for.
- And I'm glad - [SIGHS] by the way.
That we're friends.
I am too.
See, I don't open up to many people.
With you it's easy.
I-I feel the same.
Macadamia nuts do not equal a meal.
You do know the Beanery's packed with leftovers from dinner? [BIRDS CHIRPING] DEAN: See? Even you beer choice is wrong for me.
What do you have against a good Stout? It's liquid cake.
If I wanted to eat cake, I would have it in solid form.
Ah! There.
Right above us is Cassiopeia.
I know this because I have an app that tells me.
All I see is sky.
And clouds.
JACK: Look.
At our house.
And they're making me rethink my morning brew choice.
I'll I'll have a Stout.
- I'll grab it for you.
- Thanks.
Look at that.
My influence is already rubbing off! Are you sure you don't want to fake date me? No.
As much as I'm enjoying all of this, the faux bae plan is a really bad idea.
And the faux bae plan starring you I-is Gibson, please explain to Bishop all the ways in which she would make me a truly terrible girlfriend.
- Ah.
- JACK: Well, she can be pretty annoying.
But, despite that, she's actually also pretty impressive.
She's the type of person that'll be there for you even if you don't want her to.
She's She's pretty relentless.
She cares about you, she cares fully, with every piece of herself.
And that's a thing that's, uh, really rare.
And maybe she's not usually the relationship type, but, uh, doesn't mean she couldn't be.
- And her eyes.
- Hm.
Well they sparkle, even in the dark.
- [HITS LEG] - That's genius.
I gotta get a pen and write that down.
The The part about her eyes, say that again.
ANDY: Firefighters are taught to find our way in the dark.
Keep one hand on the wall, at all times - Let it guide you.
- I, um I had to let someone die last night.
I never had clouds - Follow me each day - Oh man.
- Years of sun that never went away - That sucks.
It did.
But, you know, it's part of my job.
I think sometimes I-I try to protect you from the bad stuff because you're a kid.
You're my kid.
I don't want you to worry.
Remember when your mom and I went through a rough patch, earlier in the year? - Is it bad again? - No.
No, no, not not not like that.
Um, but we're doing a lot, you know, and making changes to try and make sure that it doesn't get bad again.
I'm making changes.
I'm doing what I can on my end to make sure that my world doesn't interfere with her's, in a way that's not healthy.
I'm not one to pray But it's gonna be a little tough before it gets better.
You're already starting to feel that, I know.
Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh [SIGHS] And I need you to also know that, all of it, that everything I do - Now I'm scared of the dark - is for you.
- Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh - And your mom.
I'm trying really hard to make it all work, you know? Can you Can you meet me half way? Ooh, ooh Um, yeah.
I need you to bring me home I can try.
I need you to bring me home Good.
Good, 'cause, uh My life is out of control I-I-I got a thing planned for us tonight.
J-Just you and me.
No tablets, no video games What is it? We're going hunting.
- [SCOFFS] - Out in our own backyard.
We're just gonna lay in the grass, look up at the sky And we are gonna hunt for constellations.
Yeah, 'til 'til our toes get so numb and we have to go inside to avoid getting frost bite.
[CHUCKLES] I need you to bring me home - Dad.
- Yeah? Sometimes you're really weird.
- [LAUGHS] - Don't let the dark daunt you.
Stay calm.
Move forward.
I'm rattled this time Morning.
- Can someone lift my chin? - Long day? - Keep my head above water - Ooh, long night.
New fantasy vacation idea - 'Fore I'm too deep in - Someplace with a bed.
I've never had problems, where do I begin? - Let's do it.
- [CHUCKLES] But it's not a problem, I'm just being human I wish you could've met this guy BB I met on my call tod.
He was a master of fantasy scenarios.
- I am falling apart - [LAUGHS] But, in the end, I think reality turned out a lot better for him.
Now I'm scared of the dark Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh All I can hear is my heart Life's too short.
No more fantasizing.
Let's take a vacation.
For real.
Sun, snow, bed, it doesn't it doesn't matter.
I don't want to put things off Okay.
Okay, I can see the look on your face.
I know, it's not realistic, but I was going to say I've got vacation days.
And I don't want to be the guy who never uses them.
I'll need you to bring me home - Really? - Sure.
Yeah, I know, yeah, I know This ain't forever Okay.
Okay, okay.
So, we take the days off, and then what? We can't tell people, so how will that work, can we make that work? Okay, so, we can't we can't take the time without telling people why, and we can't tell people why without outing our secret, and doing that messes with careers, and jobs, so I am losing my patience They say that winding roads Forget it.
Forget it.
- Lead to great destinations - [SMOOCHES] - But I'm so far from home - Back to fantasy vacation, I guess.
- Can you help me to change this? - [SIGHS] If this secret is what's holding us back, then maybe [SIGHS] maybe we shouldn't be a secret anymore? Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh Now I'm scared of the dark - Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh - There's always a way.
So when your find your path through the darkness I thought you left.
I had to bring you a plate of leftovers.
Friends don't let friends not eat real food.
You're really gonna insist on getting your way for the second time today? When you step out into the light You know, Kat told me she wanted to join Seattle FD because of what she saw us all do in the skyscraper fire.
I feel like she's kind of the one bright spot that came out of that whole thing.
- I need you to bring me home - There's other bright spots.
You made it out alive.
I think that qualifies.
That night also ruined my prospects as Captain of 19, but that's another conversation.
That's also how you got me.
Take a breath, let your eyes adjust Could that be a bright spot, too? Eat your food.
and see what you see
