Station 19 (2018) s03e02 Episode Script

Indoor Fireworks

1 Previously on "Grey's Anatomy" and "Station 19" You're dumping me.
They're naming a new Fire Chief.
Promotions will trickle down.
Is that what this is about? Are you gunning for Captain, Maya? I didn't sleep with him, and if I had, it's still none of your business! Your decisions reflect on me, on my legacy! - You're leaving Seattle? - For a couple months, yeah.
I feel like I always wind up going home to find you, and I Well, I think maybe, uh that's a pattern that needs to stop, too.
BEN: Now, I used to be an anesthesiologist.
I have logged I don't know how many hours in the O.
R.
You're a surgeon.
You're needed in the operating room.
I-I'm not a white-coat guy.
I'm I'm a run-into-the-fire guy.
I don't need your patronizing idea of protection, because I get enough of that from my father.
You finish your shift, then take the week off.
- Get up! Whoo! - Na na-na, na-na na, na na na Na na-na, na-na na, yeah Can't you see the sun shinin'? Gibson, can you handle the fire report? Like I do every shift? Yeah, I got it.
Thanks for asking.
Here we go.
Herrera, heads up.
It's Vasquez.
You took Herrera's spot, you take her name.
Hey, you think us Latinos are all the same? Hilarious.
[CHUCKLES.]
Right.
I forgot.
It's all PC-kumbaya-crap here on the A-shift.
We prefer A-team, actually.
[LAUGHS.]
I'm sure you do.
While we're on the B-shift, we call you guys The View 'cause there's one of everything.
There's two of you, though.
At what point are we allowed to hit this guy? Go ahead.
I'd love an excuse to knock the boy band off your face.
BEN: Hey! Guys! Come see this.
Yeah Gonna be a good, good day What fresh hell is this? DIXON: I'm grateful to the Mayor for taking a chance on me.
And with my proven track record with the Seattle Police Department, I'm confident I can bring Seattle Fire to new levels.
New levels? Seattle Fire's a fine institution, but I believe there's always room for improvement.
[CHUCKLING.]
He looks like a sex offender.
[LAUGHTER.]
The new Chief is a cop? Former.
Cop, not sex offender.
Um I-I thought that was live.
'Cause news news conferences are us usually live? Chief Dixon? Lieutenant Maya Bishop.
Olympian.
Gold medalist.
Bishop, I've heard about you.
I understand the department's failed to utilize you as an asset for public relations.
I plan to change that.
Lieutenant Jack Gibson, sir.
And you're what? Silver medal? Uh n DIXON: You're the surgeon? I am.
Was.
Heard you did good work at that incident at the bar.
I was just doing my job, sir.
[CHUCKLES.]
Been on the job eight hours, I've already heard that expression five times.
Just keep your scalpel to yourself.
I paid out enough lawsuits in the PD.
That was a joke.
[FORCED LAUGHTER.]
Sullivan here is giving me the tour.
I just wanted to meet the department's best company myself.
Oh, so when are you going over to 35? [LAUGHING.]
That was a That was a joke.
No, I No, I got it.
You are? I'm Victoria Hughes.
- Travis Montgomery.
- Travis.
- Dean Miller.
- Hi, Dean.
- Rigo Vasquez.
- Vasquez.
What about, uh, Captain Herrera's kid? I thought he was at this station.
She is.
Andy Herrera.
She's on sick leave.
How about that tour? Yeah.
Okay, bye, now.
Can I move in with you when I get fired? I just called him a sex offender.
Hey.
I think I know why Andy's "sick.
" Don't you want to know? Why are you acting like you didn't get picked for prom king? Huh.
I didn't take you as the kind of guy who would let the dissolution of our brief romantic relationship affect our ongoing professional one.
Maya, we dated for months.
Dated? [LAUGHS.]
I must have missed the part where we were having brunch and shopping for towels.
We had sex.
Abundant and skilled sex, but it was just sex.
Jack, seriously, there was barely even pillow talk.
Look me in the eye.
Tell me you didn't break things off with me because you want to be Captain.
I didn't.
[SCOFFS.]
Gold medal liar.
- Got it.
- [VELCRO RIPS.]
This is why women shouldn't date men.
Thanks again for coming by.
I know this is a busy time for you.
Oh, you got quite a team here.
Diverse.
And three girls? Good optics.
You come from a fire service family, Sullivan? No.
I-I don't.
Good.
Firefighters and the humble hero crap.
Noble men who run into fires and rescue kittens from trees, all for the love of their community.
That's all well and good for small towns in Indiana, but Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States.
Citizens want to know what their fire department tax dollars are doing for them.
Yeah.
Ripley was a nice guy, but he was old school.
Allergic to publicity.
He believed in firefighters keeping their heads down and doing their jobs.
I'm not saying city council was happy when he died, but it certainly gave them the chance to bring in fresh blood.
Sir, Ripley was a friend.
I'm sure he was.
Kind of guy you'd want to get a beer with, right? I'm sure you know I'll be appointing a new Battalion Chief soon.
You want to give me any reason why it shouldn't be you? Before I find out myself, that is.
Can't think of anything, sir.
Glad to hear that.
You're at the top of my list, Sullivan.
Prove me right.
[CHUCKLING.]
I like being right.
- [ALARM BEEPING.]
- DISPATCH: Structure fire in commercial building.
Channel 4 response.
Ladder 19, Engine 19 [SIREN WAILING.]
I know you're new at this, but when the lights and sirens are on, you know, the street signs are actually just a suggestion.
Can't save anybody if we show up dead.
And, uh, I'm not new.
[CHUCKLES.]
Come on.
My dad worked graveyard last night.
He'll be asleep for another three hours.
- Whoa! - Damn! Hey! Shh.
[DOOR LOCKS.]
Warren, give me a boost.
[GRUNTS.]
Man, when'd you get the new Jordans? Shut up! You sure your dad's asleep? No, and if you fools don't shut up, we're gonna find out.
- [LAUGHS.]
- We got the keys We got the keys - We got the - [CLANGING.]
Ooh! Let's go.
[ENGINE STARTS.]
- That was loud.
- Shut up.
[KNOCK ON DOOR.]
RYAN: Seattle PD! Open up! I need to see your badge before I unlock the door.
Open up! - Wha - Why aren't you at work? Why are you here? Welfare check.
- You sleep till 4:00 p.
m.
now? - No Why are you here in Seattle? "Oh, Ryan, it's so good to see you.
It's been so long!" How hard could that be? Did my dad call you? Is that why you're back? No.
I'm back because I'm just back.
Not everything's about you, Andy.
[WOMAN SCREAMING.]
Wait.
Is it there? [WOMAN WHIMPERING.]
What's her name? Uh Ruby, I think.
- You think? - I'm never home.
- [KNOCK ON DOOR.]
- Ruby, open up! [WHIMPERING CONTINUES.]
Mama have booboo.
ANDY: Oh.
Okay.
[VOICE BREAKING.]
I broke a wine glass.
[HORN BLARES, SIREN WAILING.]
[PEOPLE COUGHING.]
SULLIVAN: Let's go, let's go, let's go! Everybody clear out! Come on, people! Everybody out! Come on, come on, come on.
Hurry.
Everybody clear out.
Come on.
Let's go.
All right, lay a supply line and charge the hose.
I need a blower at the back door and a ladder to the roof.
You, set up patient care, start triaging [LOUD BANGING.]
JACK: Shots fired! No, no, no! It's not gunfire! It's fireworks! It's fireworks.
- Get in there and knock that fire down.
- On it, Captain! Everybody out.
Come on.
[SIREN WAILING.]
- Uh, call 911.
- Yep.
On it.
Wait, no, no.
Please don't call an ambulance.
I can't afford an ambulance.
Ruby, if you don't get to a hospital, you'll be dead before dinnertime.
Then can you just drive me? Please just drive me.
- Just don't call an ambulance.
- Okay.
Listen.
If we try to transport you without medical equipment, same deal.
Your blood, my car, you dead.
I need you on the floor.
[SOBS.]
I broke a wine glass doing the dishes.
That can't be the thing that ends with me and my kids homeless, okay? Their dad's a deadbeat.
It's just me.
I'm already two months behind on rent.
[GROANS.]
Mama? It's okay, Milo.
I'm gonna be okay.
Why am I on the floor? To keep the blood flow to your heart.
Do you have a first aid kit? I think I have some Band-Aids? - Paper towels? - We're out.
Okay, uh, Milo, can you go to the bathroom and get your mama some towels? Go ahead.
Go, go.
Is there an ambulance coming? I keep getting put on hold.
Uh, call my dad.
He'll do you a favor.
He's a paramedic for a private ambulance service.
He won't put it on the books.
[WHIMPERING.]
Oh, my God.
Oh, thank you.
[CHUCKLES.]
You're such a good helper, buddy.
Why does he have to do me a favor and not you? Because we aren't speaking.
Wait, what? - [GRUNTS.]
- Pruitt.
It's Ryan.
[BABY CRYING.]
- RUBY: [GROANS.]
- It's okay.
[RADIO CHATTER.]
Well, HVAC system pulled most of the smoke out for us.
DEAN: Man, no sprinklers? Going out of business for a reason.
Let's go.
- I love this store.
- Yeah.
It's the only place you can get gummy bears and vodka - And long underwear.
- [LAUGHS.]
TRAVIS: Everybody walk out! Seattle Fire! Sir, you need to evacuate right now.
Put that candy down and walk outside.
[RADIO CHATTER.]
Hey, everybody out! [FEEDBACK.]
[AMPLIFIED.]
Attention, shoppers.
This is the Seattle Fire Department.
If you haven't noticed, there's currently an ongoing fire here at Rogers' Five & Dime.
In an orderly fashion, please make your way to the front of the store and out the exit doors.
Everything is pretty cheap, so please leave your stolen goods where you found them.
[FEEDBACK.]
All right, here we go.
H2O incoming.
On my count.
Ready? 1, 2 Really?! BEN: All right, listen up, I need hands raised if you sustained burns.
Any smoke inhalation? Uh how about hurt feelings? Yeah.
Okay, Vasquez on the, uh Okay.
Ma'am.
I fell when we were all trying to get out, and somebody stepped on me.
You mean tripped over you.
- Is there any tenderness? - Yes, I have tenderness! My husband stepped on my damn leg! Okay.
Well, can you move your foot? I caught this kid looting after the fire broke out.
Went to throw him in the cruiser, but he's complaining he got burned.
- I'll take him.
- Officer! I want to report my husband for criminal stupidity! Diane, stop it.
Ma'am Ma'am, please be seated.
All right, son, what's your name? Okay, can I, uh, take a look? Okay.
Either you take the hoodie off or, uh I'll cut it off.
It's brand new.
It's stolen.
What's your name, son? Why? What is your name? - It's Tyler.
- Tyler.
All right.
Unzip the hoodie.
[SIGHS.]
O kay.
I'm gonna have to cut your shirt off.
How close were you to the fireworks when they went off? I don't know.
What do you mean you don't know? I don't know, okay? I got scared, and I just ran.
Warren! If you dent the hood of this car with your big dumb dome, we're gonna be fighting, man.
Oh, it's the car you're worried about, not my dome? You mess the car up, my dad will bust my dome.
Gotta go risk versus reward, man.
I see how it is.
I don't think you do, Warren.
My analogy suggests that what's in my head is more valuable than what's in your head, and therefore, more risky to lose.
Oh, I get it.
Thanks.
Jokes are always funniest when you have to explain them.
You fools ready? Think you can get closer than last time? Hell yeah.
- [ENGINE STARTS.]
- Let's go.
Whoo! MAYA: When we're done in here, bring in some salvage covers and the water vac.
No, we need to dig through this debris and make sure there isn't any unexploded fireworks first.
Yeah, if we want to be here an extra 45 minutes.
Uh, guys? I'm the commanding lieutenant.
You listen to me.
Yeah, you're not power hungry at all.
Hello? Seattle Fire! Anyone in here? Hello? Seattle Fire! Sir, we need to evacuate the building.
Sir.
Sir, are you hurt? Please don't shoot! Please.
I promise I'm not gonna shoot you, okay? Look at me.
I'm a firefighter.
Are they still shooting out there? Nobody's shooting, okay? It was fireworks, and it set off a fire, okay? I need to get you out of here right Okay.
All right.
We can stay here for a second.
[BREATHING SHAKILY.]
I see shootings on the news every day.
And at school, the lockdown drills.
"Lock the doors, lights out, stay quiet.
" I always knew I'd be in one of these eventually.
I knew it.
I knew it.
My brother always told me, "Jesse, it's statistically unlikely," but I know! I know.
I don't even go to the movies anymore.
Every time I go to the grocery store, I check for all the exits.
I didn't even want to come here to try on this suit, but my sister is getting married, so I had to get a suit, and now I guess if I die in here, at least they'll bury me in this suit.
Hey, hey, hey.
Jesse.
Jesse.
You're not gonna die.
You're not gonna die.
I mean, eventually, we all are going to die, but you are not dying now.
Not in this store, not in that suit.
I-I-I can't move my legs.
I'm gonna teach you a little trick that I learned in training, okay? It's called box breathing.
It helps me.
Whenever I'm anxious or stressed out, it helps me to calm down.
We'll do it together, okay? Ready? Breathe in 2, 3, 4.
Hold 2, 3, 4.
- Breathe out 2, 3, 4.
- [EXHALES DEEPLY.]
Hold 2, 3, 4.
Feel better? I peed.
I-I think I peed in the suit.
I think they'll understand.
- [RADIO CHATTER, - PEOPLE COUGHING.]
Vasquez! She was close to the fire.
Let's put her on high-flow oxygen and a nebulizer treatment.
All right.
Yeah, bronchospasms.
Know how to treat them.
Thanks.
Well, you wouldn't know it by your head-to-toes.
Minor flash burns in the face.
Needs airway check.
- Got it.
- [COUGHING.]
Hey, uh Bishop's kind of got a stick up her fine ass, huh? Bishop's a Lieutenant.
Watch your mouth.
- [KNOCK ON DOOR.]
- Hello? Ryan? Dad.
This is Ruby.
She is bleeding profusely.
She needs a transfusion and a surgical consult.
Could've probably put that together.
- Two, three.
- [GRUNTS.]
Did you do this on purpose, Ruby? No! God, no.
Because if you did, we can get you the help you need.
No, no, I was doing the dishes, and a glass broke, and I tried to catch it, I swear.
- I would never - ANDY: Dad, she just needs a ride, and she needs you to keep it off the books.
You used a T-shirt? It's all I had.
Why aren't you at work? Because the captain gave me the week off.
Pew pew! Pew pew pew! I found you Pruitt.
Pew pew pew! You're a bad guy! Hey, don't shoot me! I'm the good guy! Pew pew pew! No, you're bad! Pew pew pew! Ryan, good to see you.
Staying out of trouble? Well, except the imaginary kind, yes, sir.
Pew pew pew! [SIGHS.]
The kids? Is their dad local? Yes, but he's not allowed within 100 yards of us.
I-It's okay.
I'll stay.
Me too.
[BABY CRYING.]
Hey, Milo.
Sweetie, Mommy has to go to the doctor now, okay? Okay.
The neighbors are gonna stay with you.
There's baby food in the the thing.
And Milo We'll feed them.
You go.
- Beer later this week? - Yes, sir.
RUBY: Thank you.
Pew pew pew! Pew! So, um what's up with you and your dad? I can't hear you.
There's too much blood.
[SIGHS.]
All right.
[CLICK.]
[FAN WHIRRING.]
[RADIO CHATTER.]
We good with flow path? Yeah.
I'm getting good smoke movement.
It's clearing out.
All right.
Let's go.
Tyler, I'm gonna need you to tell me what happened in there.
If I tell you, you're just gonna go tell the police.
Police aren't here right now, all right? It's just you and me.
I was like you once.
No, I was.
I did some crazy stuff, too.
[SCOFFS.]
Yeah, okay.
[GROANS.]
Me and my buddies, we, uh Tyler, who bought the fireworks? My brother got it on some trip.
Is Is your brother here now? No.
He doesn't know we took them.
Who's we? Me and my friend Chris.
Look, it was just some stupid dare, okay? So Chris is the one who dared you to set the fireworks off? No.
No, I dared him.
Where's Chris now? I don't know.
I didn't see him come out yet.
[SIGHS.]
Hey, Gibson, Bishop.
Did you evacuate a kid with burns, about 14? - MAYA: Negative.
- JACK: Negative.
Hey, Vasquez.
You seen a 14-year-old named Chris? Nope.
Just the one you got.
Where did your friend go after the fireworks went off? I don't know.
I couldn't see anything.
- Okay, did he run away? - I don't know, okay? Tyler, I need you to give me more than what you're giving me now, 'cause he could be badly hurt.
Tyler, did he run away? Where is he? He might be hiding.
Yeah.
Vasquez, where's my You know what? Just cover me.
Ladder 19, this is Warren.
Warren, you're not properly protected! Don't go in! [CHEERING.]
[ENGINE REVS.]
Warren! Warren, get your butt in the seat! Oh, my God! Whoo! Hold on to your nuts! - Whoa! - Holy [LAUGHTER, CHEERING.]
Yeah! - Yeah! - [TIRES SCREECH.]
Turn this body out [LAUGHING.]
Damn, that was close.
I beat my record.
[LAUGHS.]
Can I drive this time? - Man, get the - Come on, man! You never let me drive.
Plus, don't you want to try that standing thing? It's awesome.
It's pretty awesome.
I dare you.
Come on, Warren.
You know that's not fair.
I know.
That's why I said it.
[SIGHS.]
Whoo! [LAUGHS.]
TRAVIS: [COUGHS.]
Come on, Jesse.
Just a little further.
Montgomery.
You seen a 14-year-old kid? No.
Gibson and Bishop gave the all-clear.
[SIGHS.]
I think we're missing one.
[FIREWORKS EXPLODING.]
JESSE: Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot! Jesse! Hey, hey, hey! Jesse, it's just more fireworks, okay? It's just more fireworks.
Look at me.
We gotta go, all right? We need to leave.
Engine 19, we have more fireworks.
I think the kid who lit them is still near the source.
I'm going in to look for him.
MAYA: Copy.
We heard it.
Coming back in with the hose.
JACK: Warren, you're not wearing an SCBA.
Stand down and wait for us.
SULLIVAN: Warren? I'm fine.
I'm trying to find this kid.
Just watch my exposure.
Who knew potato chips were so flammable, huh? Starch and oil in a polypropylene bag.
Add fire, and it's basically a Molotov cocktail.
MAYA: Hughes, Miller, kill the fans! Where's the water?! - I'm working on it.
- Work faster! Do you want to fight me or the fire? [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
Jesse, listen to me.
I'm gonna pull you out of here, okay? I'm gonna pick you up, then I'm gonna pull you out.
Take your glasses.
I want you to put this on.
I don't want to die, plea I don't want to die.
Jesse, listen to me.
That news that you watch every day is designed to terrify you.
Because if it terrifies you, you drink more, you smoke more, you take more prescription drugs, and that financially benefits the same people who program the news.
And yes, there are bad people out there with a crazy number of guns, but there are good people, too.
Kind people, people who fight for justice and take care of their neighbors and build houses and plant trees and ignore the fearmongering or rise above it.
So don't waste your energy worrying you're gonna get shot.
Use it to fight for the world you want to be a part of.
Use all that energy to make your fully functional legs lift you up out of this pee-stained suit and march you towards the world you want to live in! [COUGHING.]
[BOTH COUGHING.]
You You should run for office or something.
Nah.
[SNIFFS.]
I like my job.
Come on.
[COUGHS.]
[SIREN WAILING.]
Some dumb kids set off fireworks at the Rogers' Five & Dime.
Probably a freakin' YouTube challenge.
Do they need us? Nah, apparently, Aid 19 has it covered.
Only minor injuries.
We should see if they need backup, just in case.
[ENGINE STARTS.]
Pew pew pew! Pew pew Ohh! You got me, Detective Milo.
Bang! [GIGGLES.]
Wait, can I see your badge? Wow! [CELLPHONE CHIMES.]
I kinda like being the bad guy again.
Don't get any ideas.
Your dad said Ruby's at the hospital.
She's going to be fine.
Oh.
I wish I could say the same for her rug.
[SIGHS.]
You remember when we used to steal his badge - and play cops and robbers? - [CHUCKLES.]
I do.
He was our hero.
Still is mine.
I know what you're doing, and it's not cute.
- Oh, it's not? - I said I don't want to talk about it.
Andy, whatever happened with you and your dad He called me a slut.
Whoa.
What? I mean, not in so many words, but yeah.
Were you being a slut? Hey! Sluts have all the fun.
I am pro-slut.
[LAUGHS.]
- Is it Jack? - No.
Oh.
Sullivan.
How did you know that? I know you.
I see things.
Your Captain, though? Yeah.
Yeah, that would That would piss your dad off.
My dad accused me of crapping where I eat.
Which is an expression I'd be happy to never hear again in my life.
[CHUCKLES.]
This thing with Sullivan it's something I've never felt before.
It's like a feeling I can't shake or get over unless I hate him.
But you can't hate your Captain and function, and that is what makes my dad right, which is what is so enraging.
So you love him? [INHALES SHARPLY, SIGHS.]
[SPRAY BOTTLE HISSES.]
You crapped where you eat.
I crapped where I eat.
I fell in love with my Captain and ruined the best thing in my life.
Oh.
So something new and different for you.
Wow! He goes to San Diego, he comes back with jokes.
[LAUGHS.]
Roof division, give me an update.
[VEHICLE DOORS OPEN.]
I didn't request another Aid Car.
I was driving by, saw you might need help.
Well, we're good here, but thanks.
Why isn't my daughter working with her unit, Sullivan? She took sick leave this week.
She's not sick.
You know, your daughter has a right to use her personal days as she sees fit.
She says it was your idea.
Sir Heard they named Dixon to Fire Chief.
He's not who I would have picked, but no one asked me.
Anyway I think he'll take my call.
We go back.
You're in line for Battalion Chief.
I think your behavior with my daughter could get in the way of that if it comes to light.
Nothing happened between me and your daughter.
You and I have different definitions of "nothing.
" Whatever it is between you it ends now.
MAYA: Sir, Warren's still in there.
Warren, I need you to get out of there now.
Better learn to get a handle on that one before he gets himself killed.
That wouldn't be great for your chances with Dixon, either.
Warren? Warren, come in.
- [ENGINE REVS.]
- [CHEERING.]
Whoooo! If I get grounded, it's totally worth it! Hey, man, sit down, sit down! Sit down, man! Here we go! [ENGINE REVS.]
[INDISTINCT SHOUTING, CHEERING.]
[TIRES SCREECHING.]
[CRASH.]
Go.
Warren! I hear you, Captain.
I'm just trying to find this kid.
He set off the fireworks.
I think he's still close to them.
I don't care.
That's not your assignment.
Gibson will find him.
No, I got this.
I-I know how this kid thinks.
I was this kid.
- Baby, there you go - [SHOUTING.]
Saying that you need some time alone There's something you should know I would never make it on my own Give me something for the pain A little something for the way you are I will love you just the same I will love you with a broken heart Ooh, ooh, there's a million different reasons why I'm never gonna be the one you want Give me something for the pain Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh Phew! Hell of a way to end a shift.
- Anybody want a beer? - Me.
- Yep.
- Yeah! I'm gonna go work out.
No, you're not.
You're gonna go study for your Captain's test.
Don't do that.
Do what, call you a liar? Presume to know me.
Ambition's not a bad thing, Maya.
Just when it's the only thing.
Okay, for the record, this right here? This is why we don't date each other.
Wow.
Pot, kettle.
Ripley didn't work at the station.
Yeah, still Vic's right, you guys.
You need to kiss and make up.
Or, you know not kiss, but just decide to get along.
I am getting along.
You guys? You're cutting into my drinking time.
[VEHICLE DOOR SLAMS.]
I do my best, I won't stick to my head DIXON: And the incident today is a perfect example of how Seattle Fire is going to be there for you going forward.
We were able to contain the fire and treat the patients with only one company.
Screw this guy.
He's using us to launch his agenda.
He doesn't miss a photo op, does he? That, I can promise you.
I thought I was done being mad at Ripley for dying, but here I am, pissed at a dead guy.
DEAN: At least we don't have to work with him every day.
I might have to level that Rigo guy - [DOOR OPENS.]
- before Andy gets back.
If she ever does.
[SCOFFS.]
That guy looks like a sex offender.
- [SNORTS, LAUGHS.]
- Thank you! [LAUGHTER.]
What are you drinking? What are you buying? VIC: It's just not the [LAUGHING.]
same.
[TIMER BEEPS.]
[GROANS.]
What are you still doing here? I didn't get a chance to get my workout in today.
It's great to meet Chief Dixon.
Seems like a real breath of fresh air.
Yeah.
And I thought you handled the incident really well.
What do you want, Bishop? I know you're in the running for Battalion Chief.
And I know you stand a good chance of getting it.
I want to make Captain when you do.
There's no guarantee I'll get We both know you're the best man for the job.
And we both know I'm the best woman for this job.
Gibson and Herrera they both let their personal lives get in the way of their careers.
I do not.
I have no conflicts.
No baggage.
I have spent a lifetime dedicating every waking hour to my goals.
[EXHALES SHARPLY.]
And I always achieve them.
[EXHALES SHARPLY.]
I am the next Captain of Station 19.

What's the rush? [CHUCKLES.]
If gold's within my reach, why wouldn't I grab it? Well, you just missed those unexploded fireworks and let a member of our team run into a fire without a helmet today.
[GRUNTS.]
I did miss those fireworks.
[EXHALES SHARPLY.]
But with all due respect, sir, you let Warren run in without a helmet.
So I guess even the best players sometimes drop the ball.

Dark turn of phrase, all things considered.
What happened in San Diego? Jenna cheated on me.
Ouch.
How'd you find out? Oh, she told me.
- She told you? - Yeah.
She wanted to hurt me.
Why would she do that? Well, the day before, she asked me if I was still in love with my ex.
Oh.
And I said yes.
Oh.
Yeah.
[LAUGHTER.]
Wait, okay, wait.
So, who do y'all think is gonna be the new Captain when Sullivan makes Battalion Chief? - Herrera.
- [SNORTS.]
What, you don't think it's gonna be Herrera? You know what? I'm not saying anything, so Okay.
You did say something.
Snorting is saying something.
Now say words.
She ain't out sick.
Say more words.
Sullivan benched her.
What? Why did he bench her? Because she broke his heart.
Or he broke her heart.
I don't know.
- I haven't worked it out yet.
- All right.
- Okay.
Right.
- Yeah.
- He's Captain, she's Lieutenant, - Yeah.
They were secretly in love, and none of us knew about it.
Mm-hmm.
Shocking.
Okay, you know what? Everything in life comes down to two things love and war.
Sex.
Maybe money.
- Uh-huh.
Definitely money.
- Yeah.
Herrera and Sullivan? Really? Mm-hmm.
Well, I have zero proof, but this is all gossip and speculation.
Yeah.
I love gossip - more than I should.
- [LAUGHING.]
Same.
Right? Oh, God.
These smell like the fire today.
- Yucky.
- Yeah.
- This delicious? - Mm-hmm.
- It's a Molotov cocktail.
- [DOOR OPENS.]
- [LAUGHING.]

I'm looking for my wife.
Her friend said that she was here.

- [ZIPPER CLOSES.]
Ohh.
[EXHALES SHARPLY.]
Damn it.
My husband.
- You have a husband? - Yeah.
You knew that.
How would I know that? We just met.
What are you talking about? What are you talking about? Last summer? Station 19 barbecue? I said "Nice hot dog," you said, "Nice buns.
" [SIGHS.]
Your husband is Vasquez.
Everyone keeps telling me to stay in my lane.
T-That I'm not a doctor anymore.
But I am still a doctor.
And I'm a firefighter.
I am highly trained in both those fields.
That should make me an asset, not a liability.
What makes you a liability is that you run into burning buildings without permission and deliberately defy your Captain's orders.
Yes.
Yes.
I am defiant sometimes.
Yes.
I'm also brave.
I'm wired for adrenaline.
And I care about my fellow man.
I'm smart, Captain, all right? And I'm capable, and I can think six steps ahead, and I'm tired of apologizing for that.
Look, I spend so much time apologizing for all the career changes and all the years of training.
I swear to God, Captain, I think all of it, every minute of my life up until now has led me to this moment, to this conversation, to to this possibility.
What possibility? A physician response team.
Field medicine.
A surgeon who's first on the scene.
You want to do surgery in the field? They do it in the military.
Why not here? Look, I am a surgeon who's also a first responder.
How many fire departments can say that they've got someone like me on their roster? Look.
You want to impress Dixon? I'm your shot.
Ryan No.
Y-You don't have to say anything I want to.
I want to say something.
Well, there's nothing to say.
It's just [CHUCKLES.]
I guess it turns out everything is about you, Andy.
MILO: Bang! [GIGGLES.]
