Station 19 (2018) s05e14 Episode Script

Alone in the Dark

1 It's the end of an era, y'all.
I'm the king of unemployment! - 23! - Hey! Hey, let's get one with the cap.
- Yeah, let's do it.
- Come on.
Be like Jordan, baby.
Come on, come on.
- Can you snap me with them real quick? - Oh, yeah.
- It was my first house.
- It was my only house.
It was the house that took me in after I lost it all.
It was a good house.
Hear, hear.
Okay, who wants a drink? - Oh.
- Yeah, yeah.
- Yes.
- I better hit the road before my wife comes and drags me home, so Aw! Yeah.
- Boo! - I know.
I know.
I know.
Come on, man.
- 23! - 23! Herrera, I know that was tough, but you handled it with grace.
I can't make you any promises, but I'm doing everything that I can to make sure you land back at 19.
- Thanks, Chief.
- Yeah.
See you.
It was a good clinic day, I thought.
Twice the volume as the first day.
Yeah, you know, and, uh, Chief Ross wasn't here to see my big comeback, either, so Well, probably too busy shutting down stations and denying promotions.
I'm still working on it.
Almost there, I swear.
And have you thought about it yet? Oh, about the fact that you are actually entertaining the idea of my ex-boyfriend being our sperm donor? - Yeah, it's all I can think about.
- Okay, okay.
I prefer to think of him as my friend, not as your ex-boyfriend, and I know, he's the last person I thought I'd want as our sperm donor, but we've been looking at options for months, and nothing has felt right, and then he offered, and it got into my brain and I can't seem to shake it out of it.
It's just that, a couple months ago, you didn't want me to be in the same room with him, and now you want him to potentially be in our family.
I know.
I know.
It sounds crazy.
But the thought of the two of you together used to make me want to smash dishes.
But now, honestly? I can't imagine it.
It makes me laugh.
He's a doofus.
Come on.
I've been spending so much time with him because of the clinic, and he's a little awkward, but he's also kind and humble and smart.
And handsome.
Do I need to be concerned about you two? I'm only saying maybe we think about the future and not about the past.
Well, it's just that I thought I was supposed to have an interview with that Tabitha woman, and then I heard nothing.
- You take me off the list? - No, no.
You're still on the list.
Oh, God, are the Millers pulling some crap again? I swear, I don't know how Dean came out of those two ass No, they are very fine people, okay? They just, uh We might be settling out of court.
They want us to have full custody.
What? Are you serious? - Shh! - We have to celebrate.
- We got her? We got Pru? - Y-Y-Yes.
K-Keep your voice down.
- We got mm-hm-mm.
- Keep your voice down.
- But we have her, yes.
For now.
- Mm-hmm.
- It's looking promising, but, uh - Okay.
They've, uh They've got one request.
They've got one final request, and I don't know if I can give it to them.
Okay, well, whatever it is, you got to do it - 'cause it's Pru, so - I am aware.
Okay, so stop being Mr.
Cautious-Keep-Your-Voice-Down and start celebrating.
Cause we got Pru.
We got Pru! - What? - Shh! Uh, n-nothing.
She's just being silly.
Shh! Would you shut up? Ugh.
Come on, Trav.
Mom, Dad, we're here.
Whose birthday is it? Uh, Dad's.
You didn't tell me it was your dad's birthday.
Yeah, I didn't want to give you a reason to skip it.
I didn't bring a gift.
- Trust me, he won't care.
- I care.
I mean, it's bad enough showing up empty-handed.
- I told you to.
- But showing up empty-handed to a birthday? I mean, not even a card or flowers or a bottle of wine.
Believe me, my mom will have wine.
I can feel my mother's red-hot laser beam of shame - roasting me from way across town.
- Hi, Mom.
Trav, I'm telling you, it's fine.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- Mwah.
Mm, nice to see my boy on time for once.
Kitty Dixon.
So lovely to finally meet you, Trevor.
It's Travis, Mom.
Oh! Right.
Uh, Trevor's the surgeon who did my neck lift.
- He's a genius.
I look 30.
- Yes.
Uh, Birthday Boy, our guests are here.
Don't be rude.
Oh, tell him he looks nice, okay? I'm trying to upgrade his look a bit.
- Welcome.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Nice sweater.
- Really great sweater.
- It looks very warm.
- Mm-hmm.
- I look like a cupcake.
- Oh, God.
Your mother's doing.
Nice to see you, Montgomery.
Happy birthday, Chief sir Dixon.
- No, just call him Dick.
- I don't think I can.
Kitty, do these boys need drinks? - Yes.
- Oh, yeah, just wine for me, - Please, yeah.
- Ah, come on, Emmett.
Be a man.
Have a Scotch.
Travis, what's your poison? - I make a mean Manhattan.
- Oh, I got it, honey.
Trust me, mine are better.
He shakes his Manhattans like a heathen.
He also likes his steaks well done.
Yes, sir, you can bring it in anytime.
We'd be glad to check out your fire extinguisher to make sure it works alright.
Yes, sir.
Have a good night.
Chief Ross, how can I help you? Lieutenant Sullivan, this is Captain Henderson, a representative from the Professional Standards Unit.
I've heard good things.
Wish I could say the same.
Uh, Captain, why don't you go ahead in and say hello to Captain Beckett and I'll join you in a moment, okay? Come in.
You're doing this now? In the middle of a shift? Hey, it took me a couple of days to get the department behind me, but I didn't want to wait any longer if he's a danger to 19.
Sully, you better be right about this.
- 'Cause if you're wrong - I'm not wrong.
Captain Beckett.
Chief Ross.
So, the department just has a few questions - about your recent performance.
- Uh-huh.
The pipeline explosion which resulted in the death of two firefighters Is still under investigation by the city.
But you made the call to leave your post and go on foot, is that correct? I left Incident Command to Chief McCallister, as more hands were needed, just like any good firefighter would do.
And the incident with the engine at the Phoenix fair? Do you have eyes in the back of your head at all times, Chief? What about the candy factory fire? You had the schematics wrong.
I was working off of a hand-drawn map.
Respectfully, Chief, you say you're direct, so, please, be direct.
I recently had an anonymous tip with concern that you have been drinking on the job.
- Hmm.
- After asking you a few questions, I don't think that's an unfounded concern.
Thank you.
You will need to submit a urine sample.
Captain Henderson will escort you to the restroom to witness the sample, and then he will escort you home, where you will remain until the results come in.
Permitting you're clean, you can come back to your shift.
Is this clear, Captain? Is that how we're gonna play this? The department takes accusations of this nature very seriously.
Are we clear, Captain? I'm not leaving my team mid-shift and having them wonder why.
I'll stay here.
You can even send in a babysitter.
But once you give us the sample, you're not to leave this room until the results come in.
Please escort Captain Beckett to the restroom.
Alright, first round's on me.
10 beers, please.
Hey, what's up, man?! You okay? Yeah.
You know it's okay not to be, right? You were at 23 a long time.
I was, uh I was sent to 23 after Michael It felt like exile.
And then it kinda became a-a haven.
You know, there were no expectations to promote again Mm.
make big splashes, or be anything other than a dutiful firefighter.
You know, and yeah, 23 had its problems, but, you know, being there let me be okay, so I'm mad as hell that some new brass from San Diego can just show up and decide it's closed like that.
Actually, can I get a shot of tequila, too? And, yeah, we're all here drinking, 'cause our station's closed down.
- You're staring.
- Shut up.
Whoo! Alright.
Warren, how's it going with the Millers and Pru and all that? Oh, well, you know You know, it's a whole I don't think Travis has missed a shift since he started at 19.
Mm, that's not true.
You know, he missed them three weeks when the Well, give a guy a pass for penetrating trauma.
Okay, but, you know, it just speaks to his work ethic is all I'm saying.
I wonder what Dixon's house looks like.
Uh, well, he probably has a sex dungeon - even his wife doesn't know about.
- 19.
No, sit, sit.
Keep eating.
I just wanted to update you all.
There's, um There's been a situation, and Captain Beckett will not be on duty until further notice.
Lieutenant Sullivan, you are acting captain for the rest of the shift.
Enjoy your dinner.
Did you know that Chief Ross Engine 19, Ladder 19, and Aid Car 19 requested to 8214 Crabb Way.
- What the hell's going on? - No idea.
Let's go, 19! Uh, you're welcome.
But you should tell them.
We need a win around here, and Pru is ours.
And she might be living in your house, but she's our firehouse baby, and we deserve a - little bit of happy - They want me to quit firefighting.
Alright? Th-That's their request.
They don't want Pru to lose another dad.
That's why we're not celebrating.
- But you can't quit.
- Mm-hmm.
- But you have to raise Pru.
- Yeah.
Here we go.
Alright, reports are a car fire four floors down.
Gibson, Bishop, you're on fire attack on S4.
Warren, Hughes, search and rescue, S1 down to S4.
- Let's go.
- Dispatch, requesting additional aid cars.
Cutler, Klyne, assist Warren and Hughes on evac.
Nice and clean tonight, 19.
Nice and clean.
Three people down! Hello! Seattle Fire! Seattle Fire! Seattle Fire! Is anybody in here?! Seattle Fire! Holler if you can hear me! Hello?! Seattle Fire! Ma'am, ma'am, ma'am, no, no, no.
- You cannot be in here.
- My kids are down there.
- No! What are you doing? - I have to get back down there! - No, no, ma'am - Let go of me! We cannot let you go back down there.
- The smoke is too thick.
- I don't give a damn about the smoke.
My kids are still in the car.
Okay, okay, ma'am.
What are their names? Abby and Jonny.
I just had to run into the store.
This is Incident Command, maintenance says the fire's coming from a hybrid car that may be plugged in.
Gonna cut power.
Okay, ma'am, it's about to get really dark in here.
If you can't help me, then get out of my way! Ma'am, ma'am, we can find your children.
- You're just wasting time! - We cannot do that with you in here.
Okay? Cutler, Cutler, can you take her outside so we can continue evac? - I am not leaving! - Ma'am, listen listen to me! You need to let us do our job so we can bring your kids back to you safely.
The longer you fight us, the longer it takes us to find them.
Alright, great.
Now, go with them.
- They'll take care of you.
- Okay.
Thanks, fellas.
- Abby! Jonny! - Hello?! - A toy gun? - Yep.
That's my boy.
He used to love playing cops and robbers.
No, he loved playing dress-up.
Oh, I had this pair of high-heeled leather boots that he was obsessed with.
I always found him in my closet.
Okay, no more photos.
Thanks, Mom.
We know Oh, no, no, no.
- Please, please keep them coming.
- Ah.
Montgomery, did you play any sports in school? I wrestled for four years in high school, - varsity for three.
- Impressive.
Yeah, I mean, I only joined the team freshman year because I had a crush on this guy, but then I ended up really liking it.
Oh, so you were gay even back then? Trendsetter.
- Mom.
- What'd I say? Montgomery, how's that new, uh, lady fire chief working out? I heard she closed Station 23.
Chief Ross is impressive.
You know, she's smart.
And the right fit for the moment we're in Female and a double minority - Black and Asian.
- Ah.
- Isn't she gay, too? - Who isn't nowadays? Uh, I'm not quite sure about her personal life.
The department needs more conservatism.
Get too many people in there with liberal ideas and, well, you get 19.
- What's wrong with 19? - What isn't wrong with 19? - Dad.
- Another Manhattan, dear? - No, thank you.
- Okay.
I think it all stems from Pruitt Herrera.
Frankly, he let his house run rampant.
And now what you have is a bunch of entitled millennials.
- I'll take another, Kit.
- Could I get a please on that? Pretty please, pretty Kitty.
Oh, see? That's not so hard.
At least McCallister came up through the ranks.
He respected the history, although he had his own problems.
If I'm being honest, the whole department has been flailing since I retired.
Retired? Oh.
I thought you left because of the charges against you.
D-Dad, I think what Trav means Oh, I-I-I know what he's trying to do.
But the charges were dropped and my pension was reinstated, so it's just as though I had retired.
Yes, of course.
The old boys' club working just the way it's supposed to, right? Okay, uh, Mom, yeah, I think dinner must be ready.
Yeah, right, right.
I think the potatoes should be ready, honey.
- Great, yeah.
- Potatoes.
Yeah, so Sullivan, place is like a maze with low visibility.
Where is the stairwell located? East wall, side of the hall, through the double doors.
We need to get water on that vehicle and keep water on it until it cools.
We don't want the lithium batteries or the fuel tank to catch fire.
That way.
Got it.
- I got it, I got it.
- What? - I got it.
- O-Okay, okay.
Come on.
Pretend it's Chief Ross.
I'm not Chief Ross.
Screw you! I should be captain of 19! - Ugh! - Yeah, whoo! So So, he's all amped up after we knocked down the fire, right, and he's all he starts strutting around, walking around like like he won a Super Bowl or something, right? - You know what saying? - Flexing.
And out of nowhere bam! Maddox disappears into the open septic which had not been emptied yet.
Oh! Oh, what are we talking about? Hey, guys, uh, Cap, Ruiz, this is Jeremy.
We were in the The academy together, but now he's a big shot at 42 in Oregon.
- Hey, man.
- Yeah, thanks for letting - me crash the commiserating.
- Hey, uh, Herrera's buying tonight, so you picked a good one.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
It's the first round.
The first round.
Oh, my God.
This is my song.
- Same.
- Come on.
- Girl.
- Hey! Hoy el mundo es mío Let it go, let it go, aquí 'toy contigo Somo' un equipo Ready, set, ready, set Hey, hey, hey, hey! Push it back, swing it back - Ooh, sorry.
- Sorry.
- Nice to meet you.
- You, too.
Whoo! I love you, man! I love you, too! I love you, John! I love you! Whoo! Abby! - Hello?! - Jonny! Incident Command to search and rescue Any word on your primary search? Yeah, second floor's clear.
We're still searching for the two missing civilians.
If you don't find them soon, I need you on fire attack.
No, we are not gonna go back up there to that broken mother without her kids.
Okay, keep you posted.
What?! - It's just dancing.
- Uh-huh, yeah.
It's never just dancing.
- Oh, "it's never just dancing.
" - Mm.
Ugh, this stupid no-sex pact.
Yell, well, you realize you only have yourself - to blame for that.
- Well, you know what? Sadly, it's actually given me so much clarity.
Like, without any entanglements and complications, I see what I want and need so much more clearly now.
Like, if I had tried talking to Chief Ross before the pact, it would've been even more disastrous.
Even more disastrous? Oh.
No, I meant, like, if I had tried talking to Chief Ross about my future before the pact, it would've gone badly.
When did you talk to her? After you told me to go after what I wanted.
What did you say? I just I I was I was honest.
I told her that Aquino was coming back and that means I would've been bumped to lieutenant and if I'm gonna be a lieutenant anywhere, I'd rather it be at 19.
No, I-I told her I was proud of the changes I made at 23, but it would've been hard to see it revert back to a boys' club.
So you told her that 23 was a lost cause? I didn't sa No, Theo, I was just honest.
I So you wanting to go back to your precious 19 - is the reason 23 got shut down? - What? So you're the one who got us shut down? - No, that is not what I said.
- Okay, then what did you say? 'Cause if Ruiz is - calling you out, then - Duval Hey, ladies, we are commiserating here.
We are not fighting.
- Unless it's with Jell-o.
- Hello.
Okay, what's happening? - Nothing.
- Nothing.
Stop it.
We all deserve to know the truth.
So you can tell them or I will.
Look, okay, I-I-I talked to Chief Ross before the station shut down, and I asked her if I asked her to transfer me back to 19 as a lieutenant alright? Aquino was coming back anyway, and I decided McCallister's punishment had gone on long enough.
Look, I didn't ask to be at 23.
I didn't ask to be in charge of changing decades of toxicity and misogyny, alright? - Whoa.
- I-I-I had done my part, and I was ready to go home.
But you were supposed to be our our captain.
I-I didn't tell her to close it.
And after she decided to, I tried to fight You sold us out to leverage your way back to the Girl Scouts.
That is You know, you constantly preach that we are a team.
That We have each other's backs, right? But the first chance you get, you just stab us in ours.
- That is not - Some freaking captain you are.
Hey, 23, let's go somewhere else.
- Come on.
- Hey, Jer, you coming? Dude, she just said she tried to protect you all.
You think an interim captain really has the power to To shut down an entire station? I'm gonna finish my beer, man.
- Whatever.
- Hey, Theo, hey, you know that Jonny?! Abby?! - Jonny! - Call out if you can hear me! Jonny! That poor woman.
The guilt she must feel.
- Abby! Jonny! - No, d-do you hear that? - Do you hear that? - I hear a fire alarm.
No, no no.
This way.
Abby! Jonny! Abby! Well, of course, we all loved Alicia.
I was so looking forward to those gorgeous grand-babies, but Gay couples can have kids, too, Mom.
You know, one of our lieutenants and her wife are about to start a family.
Is that Bishop? See? Lesbians everywhere.
Well, I do suppose it's a little easier for them, uterus and all.
Kitty, not at the table.
Dick, the word uterus is not a provocative word.
You know, I still want to have kids one day.
Yeah, I'm open to it with the right person.
B Um, I mean, we've we've never talked about it, so We don't talk about a lot of things.
Leave it to you, Kit, to find the sore spot.
What? All I said was that I'm pro-grandchildren.
But by all means, save us from this awkward silence.
I was sorry to hear about Miller.
Thank you, sir.
It's been tough.
I can imagine.
Down a member, and then you have to pilot a program that wasn't even your baby.
Well, I mean, actually, I'm I'm pretty grateful Crisis One is thriving.
It's Dean's legacy.
Oh, sure.
I was skeptical at first, but PD's overall call volume is down, which is nice.
Oh, honey, you're gonna have to fake it much better than that when you're stumping for mayor.
I'm sorry.
What? You're running for mayor? Did you know about this? Uh, h-he's joking, right? No, he's not.
Tell 'em, honey.
And tell the truth, about how your first order of business is to eliminate this, um, Crisis One program that you're pretending to like.
What? Oh, see, there I go again, touching on the sore spot.
Why would you kill a program that's working? Wow.
You are unbelievable.
- Trav, just stop.
- Seriously? You're a founding member of Crisis One.
Well, I think it's time we have cake.
- I heard it that time.
- Yeah, yeah, I think it's this way.
- Think it's this way.
- Jonny, get up.
We have to find Mom.
- Abby?! Abby?! - Hey.
Hey, hey.
Hey, hey, hey.
Hey, hey.
My name is Ben.
This is my friend, Vic.
We're here to help you.
Sullivan, we found the two civilians.
- We're bringing them up now.
- Copy, Hughes.
I tried to get us away from the fire, but I couldn't see anything and then Jonny wouldn't wake up and I didn't know what to do.
You did great.
You did so, so great.
Will my brother be okay? Let's get you out of here, okay? Hey, Sullivan.
This is Gibson.
We've arrived at the vehicle.
We're gonna need an extra set of hands down here.
Okay, okay.
Aah! - Abby? - You okay? - Let me see.
- A-Ab A-Abby.
- Jonny! - Abby.
Jonny, you're awake.
I'm here.
No, you're hurt.
We got to get you guys outside, okay? 19, report, what happened? Yeah, this is Gibson.
Bishop and I were thrown by the car exploding Sending in help.
Sullivan, Sullivan this is Warren.
I'm one floor up from the explosion.
- I can help.
- No, no, no, no, no.
Sullivan, this is Hughes, Warren is evac-ing two civilian minors.
I'll go down to help Gibson and Bishop.
You can't let the Millers be right.
Okay? Hey, Abby, how's your head? You okay? Hey, you guys good? What happened? The fire must have reached the hybrid's gas tank.
So much for saving the planet.
Abby! Jonny! Oh, my God.
Oh, you're okay.
You're okay.
What happened? My babies.
Mom, I'm so sorry.
No, I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have left you.
You didn't know there was gonna be an accident, Mom.
The man is right about that.
Now, here.
Take a few breaths of oxygen for me.
He carried us both out like we weighed nothing.
- It was so cool.
- Yeah, I was just doing my job.
Your job is really cool.
I can't thank you enough.
I just had to grab some chocolate milk.
Ma'am, ma'am, ma'am, I promise you.
They are not gonna remember that Mom left them in the car.
They're gonna remember that Mom was exhausted but made time to still get the chocolate milk.
Thank you.
But, yeah, don't ever leave your kids in the car.
Back it up, back it up.
Bishop, Gibson, we're all done.
You made me look good in there.
You look happy.
I guess you got what you wanted.
It's just temporary.
Until it's not.
And then, "Oops, sorry, Bishop, guess I was the better man for the job.
" I'm sorry Chief Ross isn't reinstating you, Bishop.
You're sorry? You're the reason I got demoted in the first place.
Are we rehashing this now, Bishop? - No.
Sorry, Lieutenant.
- It's Captain today.
Sorry, Captain.
Uh, dude, I know you're hurting.
Like, you feel like you got something taken away from you Something you love.
I mean, trust me, I get it.
I mean, this pact with Andy Okay, not letting yourself have sex is not the same thing as losing your career, Jack.
Uh, we are both giving up things we love, huh? Sex and winning.
Look, all I'm saying is, don't let your frustrations get you in even more trouble than you're already in, okay? You know, it doesn't matter.
Chief hates me.
There's no way I'm gonna rise again.
If there's anyone I know who can get knocked down and then get back up again, it's you.
I know 'cause I just saw it happen.
So, my first station down in Oregon got shut down two months into my gig there.
It sucks, but it happens.
And they will get over it and they will land on their feet - somewhere else.
- Yeah, right, no, I get I get that they're mad.
I was mad.
But I - I don't think I did anything wrong.
- Mnh-mnh.
Like, all I did was advocate for myself, which, by they way, Ruiz was the one who told me to do that.
Knowing what you want and fighting for yourself, I like that in a woman.
- Oh, yeah? - Yeah.
What else What else do you like in a woman? A lot of what I'm seeing right now.
I'm sorry.
Does that Does that line normally work for you? Yeah.
Yeah, it d No.
Not really.
Two more shots, please.
Oh, God, no, I don't think I can do another one.
Oh, no, these are for me.
Got some erasing to do.
Ah, right.
- Um, so wait.
- Thank you.
So wait.
So wait.
So wait.
So wait.
Um, there's one thing I can't get past.
What? Oh, I know.
Some people like conventionally attractive men.
- Oh, hilarious.
- What are you gonna do? Um, are you are you really friends with Maddox? That douchebag? No.
I was gonna leave, pretend I didn't see him, - then I saw who he was with.
- Who? You.
You did it again.
You did it again.
Okay, I swear that wasn't a line.
- Sure, sure, sure, sure.
- It just happened.
- Whoo! - Pretty good, right? - Yeah.
- Two more? Well, sure.
Why not? Why not? - Happy Birth - That's ridiculous.
The voters of Seattle are not going to elect a man who has a record of public corruption.
Bleeding hearts only bleed until crime shows up on their doorstep or the homeless set up camp on their street.
Then they clamor for law and order, and that's me.
Good luck winning votes by attacking the fire department.
I'll show them that it's out of control, that it's cowed to the woke mob.
Instead of focusing on fire safety, it's treating homeless crazies, paying for a roving knife-mobile, and operating a free clinic.
You know, those programs save lives.
We show up and provide quality care to the community, and we do it unarmed and without a threat.
So, you guys gonna have some cake, or That money could be better used to increase public safety.
Talking about PD, right? Because you guys need more money? Whereas we could use the money for mental health services or making the streets safer or - expanding public transportation.
- Please, spare me your "defund - the police" propaganda.
- What else do you guys need? What are you missing? A couple of tanks - and a battle ship? - Trav Since when do you care about saving lives? Didn't you just let a guy light himself on fire during one of your crisis calls? Actually, we saved that man from killing himself.
Yeah, and humiliated my son in the process.
Trav, just stop, okay? It's not worth it.
Come on, Montgomery.
You've been in FD for what, a decade? You're clearly a career firefighter who lacks any ambition to climb to the top, which seems to stem from some lack of commitment to something or someone other than himself.
- Dick.
- Dad.
Or maybe you just prefer to stay in the shallow end, where nobody expects anything of you.
As opposed to you, who continually fails his way upward.
You are not a leader.
You are a mediocre company man who thinks power is gained by grinding down everyone around him.
Even your own son hates you.
- Travis.
- Trenton.
My son was on a path, and you took him off that path.
He wasn't even gay till he met you What? No.
Travis didn't make me gay.
Nobody makes anybody gay.
and now he's a laughingstock.
The only laughingstock in this room is you.
If I'm a laughingstock, it's 'cause you're my father.
- What? - No.
Do it.
Look, Trav, I don't need you to fight this fight - for me, okay? - Clearly you do because it's the first time tonight that you've actually stood up to him.
Oh, wow.
Oh, wow.
See? There it is.
That's how you think of me.
That's not - Mmm.
- Oh, you're not even gonna heat it up? You're not worried about, like, salmonella? I just inhaled smoke from a lithium battery fire.
You think I'm worried about salmonella? Sullivan, I'm We're good, Bishop.
We're cool.
You know what? No.
No, they they they do - not get to steal my joy.
- Hmm? Miranda always says no one can steal your joy, but all I do is let people steal my joy.
We got Pru.

No catch.
They're not gonna No, I'm calling their bluff.
Yeah, and they're just gonna have to deal with it.
Yeah, firehouse baby! They do not get to steal my joy.
I feel I owe you all an explanation.
I wasn't on the call because earlier this evening, I was accused of drinking on the job.
They were baseless accusations, of course, and I came out clean, because I do not drink on the job.
However, I have it on pretty good authority that it was someone in this firehouse not saying who That submitted the tip.
And while I thank you While I thank you for your concern, I can't help but think, how can I expect my team to follow me into a fire if they don't even think I can get through a puny 24-hour shift without taking to the bottle? So in order to ensure your safety and the safety of your community, I think it's best for all of us that you get in fighting shape.
But what's hap What's happening? What's happening is intervals.
In the barn.
Right now.
N-Now? But, sir, it's It's almost midnight.
- Been going all day.
- We haven't even finished dinner yet.
You don't want to be the last one out, Bishop, if your captain's a drunk.
Sir, um, none of us accused you of drinking on the job.
No, you don't know that to be true, Warren.
One of you did.
Until that one of you comes forward and admits you made false claims, then intervals.
Now! There goes my joy.
- I'll give you two a moment, okay? - Thanks.
I'm really sorry.
I should've let you stand up for yourself.
You said I reminded you of your dad.
Well, it turns out, you remind me of mine.
I think we both know that we shouldn't be together, Trav.
But, uh, I think we're both just so afraid of letting go.
I mean, you you told everyone in a two-block radius that you didn't want to be with me and I just came running right back to you like a sad little puppy.
Just like I do with my dad.
I, uh I applied to an art program.
In Florence.
I didn't tell you 'cause I didn't think I'd get in, and and things were weird between us at that time, but, uh I got in.
That's amazing.
Yeah, yeah.
I honestly can't believe it.
Why? Your work's incredible.
You don't have to be nice to me now.
I guess, um, I can't believe I even applied.
You know, it's so unlike me.
Emmett, you are one of the most beautiful, amazing, generous, bravest souls I've ever been lucky enough to know.
I wish you treated me like it.
But I wouldn't have got this far if you hadn't been in my life, so I guess I have to thank you.
I am so sorry for so much.
You should go.
Will you tell your parents I said - thanks? - I won't.
I really do care about you.
Yeah, I know.
Bye, Trav.
Hughes, are you good? Hughes? Hughes? Bishop, I thought you were an Olympian.
Keep it moving.
Okay, Beckett, stop it.
They're getting sick.
They're not even wearing turnouts, they can't be tired yet.
Alright, fine, it was me.
- What's that, Sullivan? - It was me! I accused you of drinking because I found booze in your office, which I was looking for because I thought you were getting sloppy.
And I was right.
No, in fact, you were wrong.
I'm clean.
The new chief takes a chance on you, gives you a promotion.
This is how you repay her? Can't be very good for your rapport, now, can it? Thank you for your honesty, Sullivan.
I appreciate it.
I'm sorry.
Sorry you doubted me.
Hit the showers, everyone.
I knew you were ruthless, but I didn't know you were that ruthless, man.
I Warren.
Come on.

Watch your step.

Well, is this friend a boyfriend? No, just a friend who has my back.
