Chicago Fire (2012–…): Season 3, Episode 8 - Chopper - full transcript

The members of the firehouse spring into action when a helicopter explodes over a populated area.

Vegas was great; I got married.

Hey, everybody, this is Brittany.

Our home is your home,

and that makes it her home.

We don't even know who she is.

He doesn't even know who she is.

All right, ladies!

Work those arms!

What's it gonna take to
keep you quiet about this?

I'd just like to understand

why our baby has been put
in the high-risk category.

Heart rate's good. BP's good.

Have you experienced any
bleeding or unusual pain?

My ankles tend to swell
up like water balloons.

Other than that, I feel fine.

It's perfectly normal.

Are you ready to see how
the little one's doing?


We've been counting down the days.

Let's take a look.

Oh, my goodness.

Will you look at that?

Looks like you have a
beautiful, healthy baby.

There's its heart.

Right here's an arm.

See how the baby's on its side?


So what do we think? Would
you like to know the sex?

- No.
- Yes, please.

Not quite yet.

Yeah, we'll wait.

You know what?

Would you two mind hanging tight for a bit?

There's something I'd like
to check before you go.

Of course.

Is everything okay?

Let me just run a few tests,

and we'll take it from there.


I thought I knew everything, but...

Aw, damn, I... I got to get in the shower.

- I got to go to work.
- Wait, what?

- Yeah.
- Today's shift day.


Two off, one on.

No, what if you... what if you, uh...

what if you call in sick?

I mean, there's this...

This amazing, amazing burger place

just on the corner of
where Rush and State meet.

- I can't do it.
- Yes.

I got to go to work.

Okay, okay.

Do me a favor, okay?


Promise me you'll be safe out there.

Don't worry; I'll be fine.

No, that's not a promise!

That is not a...

hey, that's not a promise.

I'll be fine. I promise.



You want to talk to him?

You made this bed.

You can change the sheets.


It's called placenta previa.

Puts Donna in higher risk of a...

life-threatening hemorrhage
in the third trimester.

Damn it.

That's terrible.

How's she holding up?

We left the appointment in a daze,

haven't spoken since.

I can tell you from experience, Chief,

all you can do is you
put your arm around her

and you tell her
everything is gonna be okay.

It's all we can do.

Herrmann, what if it's
not going to be okay?


Oh, my God.

You scared the crap out of me.

You left this at my class last night.

- Oh, thank you.
- Oh, and also,

I just wanted to give
you a piece of advice.

You know, during this part,

you're bringing your
shoulders up a little bit,

so what you want to do
is, you want to just...

- Knock-knock.
- Hey.

Uh... Cruz and Brett.

What do you know?

What's up? Dawson said that
you wanted to talk to me.

Yeah, come in for a sec.

What's this for?

Thought you'd need a recharge

after your workout this morning.



You guys heard that?

Pretty sure half of Milwaukee heard that.

We'll try to keep it down.

Hey, um...

I don't want to put pressure on you,

but have you guys thought about plans?


Come quick, Lieutenant.
You're gonna want to see this.

- What's going on?
- We're looking at live footage

of a mid-air helicopter explosion
that took place moments ago.

The cause of that explosion
is currently unknown.

Sources are reporting the aircraft
displayed signs of distress...

Truck 81, Squad 3, Engine 51,

Ambulance 61, Battalion
25, Truck 70, Ambulance 96.

Hey, guys, these choppers
carry 300-gallon fuel tanks,

so let's assume the worst.

Everybody grab an extinguisher. You got it?

- Copy that.
- Newhouse, you bring

the k-12 saw. Tony, Capp, jaws and cutters.

- _
- Got it, Lieutenant.

Stay focused!

Listen, things might look a little hairy

when we get there.

Just take one patient at a time.

We'll get through this.

Roger that.

Hey, can I ask you a question?

Say you and someone in
the house had a... secret.


And you didn't really see any reason

for it to be a secret.

Well... Look. In my experience,

in-house relationships are
better kept out in the open

rather than have people guessing about it.

Wait, no, it's not that kind of...

Hold up.

Who'd you date in-house?

Whoa, mama.

Okay, everybody listen up.
I want a full evacuation.

Every one of these buildings
got to be checked out

and emptied out right now.

Designate that area for triage.

Squad 3, get on top of that building.

Secure the fuselage.

Check for survivors.

Right away, Chief.

Cruz, bring Severide the aerial.

- Casey.
- Yeah.

We got smoke and fuel
coming out of that building.

Get everybody out.

And locate where that rotor went,

- see what kind of damage it did.
- Yes, sir.

Nobody's on anybody's hip today.

Everyone needs to step up.

Herrmann, Otis, find that rotor.

Everyone else, follow me.

All right, let's go.

That the transmission?

Looks to be.

Come out, come on, move it.

Stairs are shot.

Mouch, you and Cruz bring ladders.

- Check the upper floors.
- Yep.

Dawson, take the ground floor.

- I'll take the basement.
- Got it.

Hey, guys, let's make this quick.

We're walking on thin ice here.


Stop moving! Hey!

Hey, sir, stop!

Listen to me. What's your name?

- Frank.
- Frank, okay.

You're sitting right on the edge.

You can't move another inch, okay?

- No movement.
- Okay.

- Okay, are you hurt?
- No.

What about you, ma'am?

The seat, it's crushing my leg.

Okay, just sit tight.

We're gonna get you guys out of there.


We're gonna need to secure this thing

before we cut into it.

Use that A.C. unit as an anchoring point.

- You got it?
- Got it.

Let's move on this, double time, go on.

Hey, Chief, I got a pilot and
two passengers alive and well.

That's the good news.

Bad news is, I don't know
how much time we got up here.

This roof seems really unstable.

Okay, you do what you can and report back.

Copy that, Chief.

How am I? Please.

We're gonna take good care of you.

Is it bad?

Tell me.

Put a good thought in your head, okay?

Your family, your friends,
the best thing you can think,

and just hold on to that.

- Brett.
- I know.


Yeah, what's next?

Ambulance 65 just brought a newcomer.

Chief Boden...

Ma'am, I'm gonna have to ask you

to step back behind these
lines and stay there.

I'm Kelly Severide's wife; I'm Brittany.

I'm so sorry, but I thought I
heard his voice on your radio,

- and I really just... I need...
- You know what you need to do

is you need to remove
yourself from the area...

And you let your husband do his job.

Herrmann, what's your status?

Looks like that dang
rotor rolled all the way

through the neighborhood
like a wagon wheel,

but I think we're closing in on it.


Hold on, we're gonna get you out of here.

Give me your halligan.

Go grab one of those stumps.

Drag it over here.

Okay, you're all right.

I got you.

All right?

Where do you want this?

Quick, over here.

Pull up on it.

All right, you know what?

Try to pull her up.

It's still too heavy.

We're gonna have to
disassemble the whole thing.

You think you can hold this
while I go get the tool bag?


Hey, listen.

Look at me, all right?

Can you breathe a little now?


Nice piece of jewelry you got here.

Please, don't make me laugh.

All right, sorry.

Enough with the funny business, right?

Hey, Lieutenant, we located the rotor.

We got a victim pinned under it.

We're pulling her out now.

Here, go with him.

Roger that, Herrmann.

Oh, Mills...

Check out this van.

Oh, man.

It's stuck.

So is this.

Sir, can you hear me?

He's losing a lot of blood.
We need to get in and help him.

Chief, this is Brett.

We need assistance with a pinned-in victim.

Copy, 61, stand by.

The hell with "stand by."

Upstairs is all clear.

Any sign of Dawson?

It's pitch black in there.

Dawson, report.


It's not her.

I can't breathe.

What happened?

The firefighter who gave me the mask,

she fell.

Get her clear.

Dawson, report.


I'm going in!

Never give up your mask!

The floor above collapsed.

My legs got pinned, and
I had to get her out.


Get over to triage.

I'm fine.

Okay, yeah, okay.


Nice work.

Chief, this is 81.

We finished our primary search.

We're gonna go in for another pass.

- Make it a quick one.
- Copy that.

Herrmann, what's your status?

Hanging in there, Chief.

We got a lady pinned under the rotor.

We're gonna need a few minutes,

but if you got paramedics
and you can spare them,

- send them over.
- Copy. Stand by.

I'm gonna die, aren't I?

P'shh, come on.

You kidding me?

This kind of thing happens all the time.

Yesterday it happened twice.

We're gonna pop you out
of there lickety split.

How we looking?

There's a lot of bolts.

This thing's top-heavy.

If it drops...

All right.

Okay, so we're gonna pull
this hub apart piece by piece.

Got it.

Hey, Chief, this is Dawson.

I found a blood trail,

and I think a victim may have wandered off.

I'm gonna go check it out.

Okay, well, you watch yourself.

Report back if you need assistance.

Don't you hesitate.

Yes, Chief, copy that.

61, repeat your location.

I have personnel available.

We're good to go, Chief.
Cancel that assistance.

- Copy that.
- Boy, sometimes it pays

to have an ex-Squad guy as your P.I.C.

Aw, dude.


Looks like he pulled it out himself.

Well, an "A" for effort,
sir, we're gonna have to...


Leave me the... hell alone.

As soon as we patch you up.

Hey, Brett.

Yeah, sorry.


Come on.

What's wrong?

I don't know; It's stuck.

All right, hang on. I'm gonna loosen it.

Hang on. All right, all right.

You got to go quick.

I'm almost there. I'm almost there.

What's happening?

Nothing, I'm just hoping
to get home in time

to toss out my wife's cooking.

I told you not to make me laugh.

Got it.

- Come on, come on.
- You're good to go, kid.

We got you; We got you.

Home free!

Otis, grab this.


All right, what'd I tell you?

All right? Okay, okay.

You're gonna make me laugh.

You're good; You're good.


What the hell is that?

The line's anchored, Capp.

It's not gonna be enough.

We need some more webbing to hold her down.

Hey, whatever it takes.

Just make it fast.

I don't know what happened.

It feels like maybe we
hit a bird or something.

It just happened so fast.

Hey, don't even think about it.

You're in good hands.

I'm on a total hot streak.

Just won a thousand bucks
in Vegas two weeks ago.

Blackjack or dice?

Rolling the bones, baby.


Aah! Aah!

Grab the line!

Hey, look out!

We got it, Lieutenant.

See? What'd I say? Total hot streak.

Squad 3, report.

Hey, we're all good, Chief.

Still working on it.

All right, almost there, safe and sound,

like I told you.

I'm gonna be all right?


Right as rain, no time, guaranteed.


This was stuck in the rotor.

It's a remote-controlled drone.

There's lots of kids flying
them around these days.


Fire department, open up!

I'm here to help!

I... I can't. Please.

All right, back up; Shield your eyes.

I'm gonna open the door.


Hey, hey.

Hey, can you hear me?

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I screwed up.

Come on, I'm gonna help
you. Let's go; I got you.

There we go.

Okay, hey.

What's your name?

- Allen.
- Allen, okay.

All right, Allen, listen.

Now, you probably got
one hell of a headache,

but I'm not gonna play 20 questions.

Just need you to do me a favor.

Take this and hold it really tight

against your head like this, okay?

Right there.

Chief, this is Dawson.
I'm behind the building,

west of the impact site.

I've got a juvenile victim with
an open-fracture head wound.

Ambulance 61, do you copy?

Yeah, Chief.

We're short of paramedics.
Can you split up?

Go, I got this guy.



Hey, Chief, I'm on my way.

Copy that.

It's just you and me, whoever you are.

Sir, relax.


What did you do to me? What did you do?

I'm trying to help you.

You have a serious, serious injury here.

There was a crash.

Stop it. Just stop.

Look, I'm not a cop.

I'm a paramedic.

Look at my uniform.

I got to get out of here.

No, you've got to go to the hospital.

No! No hospital.


Whatever illegal crap
you're doing in this van,

that is your business.

Mine is keeping you alive.

I have lost too many lives today.

I am not about to lose you.

Sit back and let me do my job!

Well, come on, then.

Do your thing.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Hey, what do we got?

Intracranial fracture,

shallow respirations.

Help me out with a "C" collar.

I'll secure his airway and intubate.

No, no, no.

No, let's not intubate.

It could increase intracranial pressure.

Let's make sure that he doesn't
have a brain injury first.


It's my fault.

Hey, honey...

I promise you, this is not your fault.

My dad said not to fly it without him.

Now Jack is gonna die.

Wait, what?

Who's Jack?

The boy and his brother
were on a roof next-door

flying their dad's remote-controlled drone.

They got clipped by the
chopper when it came down.

Brother got knocked off.
He's still down somewhere.

Okay, say no more.

81, do you copy?

Heard the whole thing, Chief.

We're on our way.

Let's go.

Fire department, call out!

Over here, Lieutenant.

He's alive.

Can you hear me?

Hey, Lieutenant, be careful.

Cruz, I need the power killed
on this transformer now.


Somebody bring me some tools.

Copy that, Lieutenant.

All right, bud, we're almost there.

Thank you.

Thank you.

- Oh, thank you.
- Yeah.

- What about us?
- I... I can't move.

Robert, my husband, he's stuck.

All right, just hang on.
We're gonna get you out.

He's breathing. Hold on, honey.

All right, listen. I
just... Don't move, okay?

- I'm having trouble breathing.
- Yeah, I know, just...

I need you to be still.
Can you do that for me?

Okay, good.

Chief, this is Lieutenant Casey.

I found the victim.

He's fallen into a transformer cage.

Bleeding heavily. Transformer took some

serious damage when he
hit, and I've got live wires

I'm trying to keep him clear of.

Copy, 81. Proceed with extreme caution.

Will do. Just waiting
on Cruz to kill the power

to this transformer.


Hey, what's your name?

Jack... Jack.

Jack? Come on, buddy.

I need your help. This is gonna hurt.

I have to get you away
from this transformer.

No luck, Casey.

We're gonna need Com-Ed
to shut the power off.

Not enough time. He's bleeding out.

Lieutenant, if that blood
touches the live wire...

I know. You two get clear now.

Squad 3, come in.

Check your lines. Secure that chopper.

You're running out of time!


Not yet, Chief; I'm almost there.

Severide, that ledge is crumbling!

You are losing support!

Herrmann, Otis,

I need this entire area cleared right now.

Move them to the end of the road.

All right, everybody.

All right, let's get 'em out.

- Careful, Tony.
- It's all right, I got him.

Hey, Chief, I got one victim free,

one to go.

Are you gonna... tell my pops?

Trust me, Jack.

He's only gonna care that you're alive.

Hold still, almost done.

Okay. Come on, let's go, go, go.

Damn it.

Casey, report!

Lieutenant, it's gonna go!

Quick, grab that line now!

Lieutenant, don't move in there.

We need to secure this line!

Okay... we got you!

- Get out... now!
- Coming out!



Jack, can you hear me?

You okay?

That was gnarly.

Casey, report.

Yeah, we're okay.

On our way to triage.


Casey's all right.

He and the boy are on their way back.

Allen! Allen! Is that my boy?

Sir, sir, he's gonna be okay, all right?

Trauma team at Chicago
Medical is top-notch.

Jack... is he...

We got him; He's alive.

If you want, you can ride with us.


Both of you.

Hey, good work.

Dawson and Mills.

Just like old times, huh?


Just like old times.

Just about done.

Well, there are no more
stretchers or backboards.

Do you think you can
walk with me to triage?


Okay, fine.

Well, I've controlled the bleeding for now,

but you need stitches.

We're done here.

Not until I get you to the hospital.

Are you gonna get out of my way,

or do I have to go through you?

Please, Robert, hang in there.

He hates flying.

I begged him to go for our anniversary.

Don't beat yourself up, all right?

It wasn't your fault.

Just stick with him.

I'm so sorry, Robert.

I'm so sorry.

He just squeezed my hand.


I want a refund.

Oh, Robert.

Hey, Severide, your wife find you?


Yeah, she's here, bugging
out, looking all over for you.


Hey, we got to book it to Chicago Med.

We got a kid here with severe head trauma.

Where's the driver?

He refused treatment.

Don't ask.

Yeah, Doc, thanks for returning my call.

Yeah. Course.

My shift finishes at 8:00.
I can be there by 8:30.

Yeah, of course. Why?

Is there a update regarding the test?

I'm gonna check storage
for another box of gauze.

I think we went through
everything we had in the ambo.



That's who you had the romance with.

Uh... Yeah. You're perceptive.

I've been called worse.

Look, this is gonna require
a longer conversation,

including beers.

Whenever you want.

All I'm saying is,
considering the day we've had,

I wouldn't object to an early dinner.

Oh, yeah, Mouch? You volunteering to cook?

Hey, hey. Hold up a sec.

So... two big saves in one day.

Sounds like a cause for celebration.

I was thinking maybe we get
a hotel room tomorrow night,

get out of the apartment.

You didn't tell Severide to leave.



I didn't.

Hotel room better have champagne.

You all right?

Okay, so...

I don't do this for just anybody, but...

I think that you're a budding superstar.

Got a free class card I want to give you.

- Aw.
- Save you 60 bucks.

Thank you.

Hey... Zumba!


I know it's none of my business,

and frankly I'm not in a
position to judge, but...


No, no, Cruz and I are not a thing.

I just feel obligated to say

that the whole firehouse romance thing,


it's not easy, all right?

You have to work at it.

No, it's not...

it's not what you think.


All right.

But this goes no further.

Promise me this won't go any further.

Okay, so this goes no further.

All right, but this goes no further.

Hey, guys, guess what.

Hey, Brett.

See you soon?

All I'm wondering is
if there's some sort of

special equipment involved
in this whole plan.

Seriously, Mouch, you're over-thinking it.

Just bring yourself, and the
rest will take care of itself.

- All right?
- And in terms of any...

Out-of-pocket expense?

All right, listen, um...

- I'll catch up with you later.
- Okay, sure, but Trudy

always says be prepared for
the worst-case scenario...

Okay. He's gone.

It's a personal matter.

No, you can't.


Now's not a good time, Herrmann.

I know... just give me two seconds, tops.

I want you to know something. Quickly.

The woman we saved...

she was minding her own business,

and then the hand of God dropped
a helicopter rotor on her.

What's your point, Herrmann?

When she was in the thick of it,

she thought for sure she was a goner.

I followed up with Chicago Med.

The lady's out of the red.

Guess what I'm trying to say is

dark skies don't always mean rain.

Give Donna our love.

Come on.



I just want to talk.

My boyfriend's gonna be here any second.

Oh, yeah, this, like, your guys' spot?


It's a thank you.

I was a real jerk yesterday.

Might have been a little rude.

You were just doing your job.

You might just have saved my life.

I appreciate that.

If you ever get into any problems,

any kind at all, you call me.

Leave a message.

I'll find you.

Simple as that.

Take care, now.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Well, considering the
day you had yesterday,

I figured you'd still be at the firehouse.

Paperwork can wait. This can't.

You been waiting long?

You know you don't have
to come to all these.

I will come to the ones I can.

How you feeling?


Terrified, if I'm telling the truth.

I feel fine for a while,
but then, you know,

the commercial comes on
with the smiling baby.

Hey, hey, hey.

You're gonna be okay.

Our baby is gonna be okay.

Now, don't ask me how I know.

I just know.

I got you.


I got you.


It's a boy.

I asked the doctor.

I knew you wanted to know.

Come here.

Look, babe,

you can't be showing up at accident sites.

- Who does that?
- Someone who's concerned

about their loved one.

Did you see one other
firefighter's wife there?

So what, Kelly?

All you had to do was respond to one text.

I wouldn't have come.

Britt, I can't be messing with my phone

when I'm on my way to a damn rescue!

And I can't be expected to sit at home

waiting for a phone call

telling me that you're not coming home!

What are you talking about?

This is insanity!

Insanity is doing the same
thing over and over again.


That's the definition of insanity.

This is what the end sounds like.

You see?

Sometimes when you just
wait out your problems,

they go away.

Now I don't have to tell...

No, no!

Oh, yes.

Let's get out of here.


Damn, Cruz, you got a full house out there?



It's time to bring it up a notch, Joe.

You bring 'em the magic.

You bring 'em the magic.

All right, everybody!

- How we feeling tonight?
- Whoo!

Can I hear you say zum...


That is not good.

Et tu, Brette?

Come on, what's the hold-up here?

We paid a lot for the zima,
not the yappety-yap, come on!

It's zumba.

All right, he knows what I mean.

You know what? Forget it.

- Hey!
- No!

- Come on, come on.
- Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe.

- For real?
- Come on, we're here.

We're ready to go.


Okay, but I take this very seriously.

By all means.

All right, kids!

Let me see what you're made of!

Hey! Ho, oh!

Come on, this way!

Here we go!

Shake it!


Come to me! Slide it out!

Give it up! That's right!

Pump it up! Keep goin', goin', come on!

I hate fighting.

I don't know.

The aftermath has its perks.

- Some of this looks fresh.
- It is.

I keep adding a little bit more to it

every month since the accident.


'Cause I want to remind myself.

Losing my sister...

experiencing the pain of that loss...

it's a part of who I am.

I'm sorry I showed up at the crash.

Just the thought of losing you too...

No one understands what
it's like but you, Kelly.


I'm not going anywhere.
