Chicago Fire (2012–…): Season 7, Episode 6 - All the Proof - full transcript

Gorsch takes over Boden's morning meeting at Firehouse 51 and goes out on calls in his place; Brett and Foster respond to a call about a Halloween prank getting deadly serious.

My name is Naomi Graham.
I'm a reporter.

You are a great interview, Matt.

Let me know if you need
anything else.

I know all about the friction

between Boden
and Commissioner Grissom.

I don't ask you for much.

I'm asking you to help Boden.

That's right.

Relinquish your command of 51.

You will report directly to me.

You start telling people
what to do,

you disrupt
the chain of command,

and I will not let that happen.

Sylvie Brett, I got something

for us to wear
for our uniforms this morning.


You don't even know what it is.

Cat's ears or headband
with bendy-spring things.

The answer's no.

I hate Halloween.

People are crazy enough
as it is.

They don't need a holiday
encouraging them.

Well, if you ask me,
I take Halloween

over Thanksgiving
or Christmas any day,

You want to see real crazy,

put all the Fosters under
one roof and add alcohol.

You'll see.

Everything seem
perfectly normal,

and then when you least
expect it... Boo.


Wallace, just want to give
you a head's up,

I'll be conducting
the morning briefing today.

But that's
the battalion chief's job.

Yeah, well, I feel like
the men might be inspired

by someone
with a little more authority.

Also from here on out,

I'll supervise 51
on their calls.

You can hang back, man the fort.

You have no experience
commanding units in the field.

Seen you do it.

I think I can handle it.

Gorsch, the incident commander

holds the lives of
his men and women in his hands.

It's not a game.

You need to let me do my job.

Your job is to follow orders
of the man above you.

Morning, men.

And women, of course.

Women... women are a big part
here too...

At the fire department.
That's clear.


I want us to get out there
this shift,

and if we fail,

just remember
that is part of our success.

I know that we all know
that sometimes victims die.

Sometimes we, lose 'em,

and that's what we build upon...
the job.

Right? Okay.

Thank you.

Okay, I also have to cover
the morning assignments.

Hey, Chaplain Orlovsky.

Hey, the Chap.

'Scuse me.

I'm not finished here.

Ambulance 61, Truck 81, Squad 3,

multiple victims down
from unknown causes,

4918 South Chicago Beach Drive.

Looks like Gorsch is escalating.

Guests have been complaining

all morning of nausea,

I thought it was just some type
of food bug going around,

but when people started
wheezing I called you guys.

The same.

All right, go have paramedics
take a look.

What do you think?

Could be a gas leak.

Otis, grab the four-gas meter.
Everyone, mask up.

We need to clear out the hotel

till we know what
we're dealing with.

81, take the first floor.

Engine, take the second.

Squad, third.

Got it.

Let's go.

Come on.

I got a pulse.

Hey, Capp, Tony.

We'll get her out to the ambo.

Ready... one, two, three.

She was right by this door.

No pulse.

Suicide pact?

Filled the tub with chemicals.

Enough to poison everyone
in the hotel.

This is a chemical situation.

We have a confirmed
chloramine release

with large exposure radius.

We need to get HazMat
out here ASAP.

Yep, that's what I think too.

Let's go.

Hey, Deputy Commissioner.

I think you're the one
who calls this in.

This is 51 to Main.

I need a level one
HazMat response at,

4918 South Chicago Beach Drive.

Copy that, 51.

We'll dispatch level one
HazMat to your location.

Everyone, clear out.

If you can move, go to the exit.

Everyone out.

Fire Department.
You gotta go.

Fire Department.
Everyone, out.

Let's go.
Move, move, move.

Fire Department. Let's go.

I got you.
Come on.

No, turn around. Let's go.
Turn around.

Ayudame. Mi hijo esta en...

You gotta keep moving.

Por favor, senor. Mi hijo
estaba en el pasillo.

Mi hermano esta perdido.

Wait... listen,
you gotta keep moving.

Hey, all right, everybody
up to third floor. Let's go.

Hey, Cruz, do you know what
they're saying?

Mi hijo estaba jugando
en el pasillo. Esta perdido.

Her son is missing.

They were playing hide and seek

and they can't find
him anywhere.

We gotta go to the first
floor hallway now.

All right, come on.
Ladies, move. Move. Move.

Come on.

There's a boy missing.

Playing hide and seek in
the hallways.

Well, we should search for him.

Good idea.



We did a sweep of one.

We didn't see him.

We're running out of time.



51, I need an update on that,
rescue search.

Hey, guys, over here.

By the vending machines.

Truck 81, Squad 3, somebody
needs to report to me now.



All right, he's got a pulse.
We need to intubate.

He's going into
respiratory arrest.

I'll get the de-fib pads
on him right now.

Let's get these contaminated
clothes off of him.

You wanna help me?

He's in V-tach.

He's got a pulse.
We got to cardiovert him.

And shocking.

Increasing the joules to 80.

Come on Mateo.


We've got a steady rhythm.

Few minutes later it would
have been a different story.

Primary search is complete.
Hotel's clear.

All right.

Let's pack it up.
Move out.

we usually hang tight

in case HazMat needs
an assist with ventilation.

Right, of course.
I meant after.

So... how's the call?

It was bananas.

This couple carried out some
kind of suicide pact.

Nearly took out
the entire hotel.

It was grim.

Well, I'm here
if anyone needs to talk.

Thanks, we'll see
if a sandwich helps first.


Listen, Chief.

You, you can't let Gorsch
run point anymore.

That guy is out of his depth.

He'd be out of his depth
in a glass of water.


So, guys, I have some news.

Okay, I've decided.

You are all learning Spanish.

That kid could have died today

because of
a communication barrier.

That's unacceptable, so I think
Spanish lessons are in order.

It all worked out.

What if I hadn't gotten
there in time to translate?

What... Chaplain is trying
to make an announcement,

and Cruz here won't shut
his pie hole.

Sorry, Chap.

So after 35 years with
the Chicago Fire Department,

I have decided to retire.

I didn't even know chaplains
were allowed to retire.

Yeah, well,
keeping up with you guys,

that's a young man's game.

So I'm heading for Florida
where there's...

Warm weather.

A charity that
I'm involved with...

and some really good golf

There it is.

There you go.

Good for you, Chaplain.
Sad to see you go though.

Well, I'm honored
that you'll miss me,

but I'm leaving 51
in capable hands.

In fact, your new chaplain
should be arriving any minute.

There he is.

No way.

I didn't know you were here.


It's, like, six weeks now.

Man, it is so good to see you.

You too.

Brett, this is Kyle.

He's... he's the best.

She's saying that
because she owes me money.

We had a regular Texas
Hold 'Em game at Lakeshore,

and... and Kyle always seemed
to win.

Blessed with good luck,
of course.

Not really, no, Emily was
just too stubborn to fold.


Sylvie Brett.
Welcome to the CFD, Chaplain.

I'm gonna say my goodbyes
to Orlovsky,

but you two can catch up,
and it's nice to meet you.



I heard you had a rough time
of it on that call.

And no wonder.

What have you been teaching
these people, Wallace?

The reckless insubordination
I experienced

is beyond anything
I've ever seen.

It's as if rank has no meaning
for them.

Well, I wasn't there,

but it doesn't sound
like the men to me.

Here are the formal
reprimands I'll be filing.

Captain Matt Casey,
for failing to await

my command prior
to entering the structure.

Harold Capp, for making
an insubordinate comment.


Lieutenant Severide, for
taking an insubordinate tone.

And all three officers

for failing to report
when ordered to do so.

I will fight every single one

of those charges
on their behalf.

You can't, Wallace.

As you said, you weren't there.

This is how it's gonna work
from now on.

I'm gonna whip this house
into shape.

Call was bad?


I'm sorry for putting you
in that position.

It's not your fault.

I'm not sure about that.

The word untenable
comes to mind.

Right now... I don't
see a way out.

Well, I got a message from
Benny while we were out.

Says he's got news on
the Grissom front.

He wants to meet at the Palace
after shift.

Well, that's something.

We'll see.

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks, Severide.

'Scuse me.

I'm wondering where I can find
Captain Matt Casey.

Who can I say
is looking for him?


Hey, Matt.

What brings you by?

For starters,
I wanted to thank you again

for your help on
the trailer story.

Looks like federal courts
are stepping in.

Grandbrook has to recall
thousands of units.

Can't say I'm surprised.
You're a hell of a journalist.

Well, I couldn't have done it
without you.

Glad I could help.

Anyway, the success
of that piece

has me wanting
to do more like it,

and since we work
so well together

I was thinking maybe
I could pick your brain

about some other calls
you've been on.

Not just corporate violations,

but events or incidents

where public awareness might
save lives.

I'm sure I can think of a few.

Got a ton of old incident
reports in my quarters

that might jog my memory.

Lead the way.

Just not on the...
Okay, well, that one's obvious.

Spanish lessons begin ahora.

Hey, this is outrageous.

You guys, Latinos make up nearly

a third of Chicago's population.

It behooves all of us
to speak the language.

You know how many different
tongues are spoken here, Cruz?

Polish, Chinese...

Polish. All right,
you gonna teach them too?

I ain't gonna do it.

I got out of school
for a reason.

Okay. Everybody,
please repeat after me.

Por favor, tome asiento
en la silla.

Yeah, guys, okay. All right,
let's just try that again.

Por favor, tome asiento
en la silla.

Go ahead.

I feel like you're going
about this all wrong.

I'm all ears.

These guys spend all day
running into burning buildings.

Sticky notes?
I don't think so, kay?

Well, what do you have in mind?

You might wanna try a little
extra visual stimulation.

That was a close one.

Sulfuric acid stored without
a permit.

Forklift veered into it
and chemical spill.

Sounds like complete negligence

on the part of
the warehouse manager.

He didn't make it.

Neither did the guy operating
the forklift.

Damn. What happened
to the company?

They were fined or sued.
I never got called to testify.

This was a fire that started

in an apartment building
over on Grant Place.

One of the tenants was using
a propane grill to keep warm.

Landlord wasn't providing heat.

Textbook slum lord.

One good thing came from it.

Chief Boden met his wife
on that call.

You mean all I have to do

is fire up the grill in
the middle of my living room

and my days as single woman
are over?

This is all great, really.

I don't want to take up more
of your time

at the firehouse, though.

Could we maybe meet up
for dinner?

Discuss some of these further?
My treat.


I don't get out of here
till tomorrow.

No problem. It'll give me
a chance to do some research.

I'm sorry, my tenacity
doesn't have an off switch.

Hazard of the job.

No... no, it's... nothing.

You remind me of someone I know.


She was...

pretty tenacious too...
It's an admirable quality.

So I'll text you with
the restaurant?

Sounds good.

Till then.

Have you ever made ghosts
out of tissues?

You know,
where you crunch up the top,

make a head, and then you wrap

a rubber band around the neck.


I was wondering if we could
do it with gauze too.

We could cover this whole place
with ghosts.

That sounds terrible.


So what is your connection
to Chaplain Sheffield?

He was at the hospital
when I was a resident.

Just an awesome guy all around.
Helpful, caring.

You guys had kind of a moment
when I introduced you.



Okay, Foster,
I was not flirting.

I mean, he's a chaplain.

He's not a priest.

You know, you two would
actually be great together.

You should call him.

No, I can't do that.

No, I'm not... Come on, Brett.

When's the last time you went
on a date?

Ambulance 61,
person in distress,

703 Throop Street.

My God.

We should call Squad.

Holy crap, did someone
actually call 911?

This is epic.

Halloween blows.

Hey. Over here.

Yes, hurry,

there's something wrong
with my Kailey.

She's thrown up everything
in her stomach

and... and now she's just
lying there.

Hey, Kailey.

All that candy give you
a bad tummy

How long has she been like this?

A while.

I told you not to let her
have so much candy.

Pupils are dilated like saucers.

This isn't a stomachache.

She's high out of her mind.

She's a five-year-old girl.

What type of candy did she eat?

I don't know. Regular stuff.
Gummy bears, M&M's,

the kind our neighbors have
given out for years.

Somebody gave her
something else.

She must have
gotten into my stash.

I had a bag of edibles.
She must...

I didn't think she was...

Jesus, she ate almost
half of it.

She's seizing.

Draw up one milligram of Versed.

Drawing one milligram of Versed.

It's okay.

Okay, hold her tight.

Let's get her to Med.

I'll go to the hospital.


We're watching the game here.

I thought we'd try something
new for our Spanish lesson.

I thought I was clear.

I ain't learning Spanish,

Hold on a second.

Elle es caliente?

Well, Rosalita was
with another guy, Fernando,

in order to make
Enrique jealous.

Or to make him celoso.

Okay, but why the hell
is he not all over her?

Because Enrique dumped Rosalita

to be with another woman,

who turned out to be a man.

So now he's confundido.

We managed to make
it through the shift

with only five false calls.

Four choking victims

and one high-as-a-kite

See? Halloween isn't so bad.

So, Kyle.
Want his number?

I'm not sure.

Come on.
You'd have a great time.

Okay, I know I must seem like
a homebody compared to you,

but I'm not just some old lady
who never leaves the house.

You don't have to feel sorry
for me.

Brett, I'm not suggesting
it for you.

I-I thought it would be good
for him.

Look, the way I know him,

he wasn't a chaplain
at the hospital.

He was a patient
in long-term care.

Car blew a tire
and it hit him head on.

It was one of those
freak accidents.

No one's fault,
but his best friend was driving

and didn't make it.

Kyle underwent multiple
surgeries, months of rehab...

It was touch and go
there for a minute.

Became a chaplain after that.
Figured he got a second chance

and just could help others
find their way.


I know I haven't known you
that long,

and I definitely don't mean
to overstep.

I just think...

he could use someone
like you in his life.

Definitely let me know how
things shake out with Benny.

Yeah, you got it, Chief.

Saw that reporter here earlier.


She just came by to ask about

some old calls she may want
to mine for potential stories.

Gonna meet up with her later
for dinner.

You just worry about breakfast.

So now Rosalita wants
to be with Fernando.

No, she's still in love
with Enrique.

Okay, so then why didn't
she answer the door

when Enrique went to her house?

Because Fernando just told her

that he just came into
an inheritance

that's made him a very rich man.

Richer than Enrique,

so now she's not sure
if she can leave Fernando.

Even though she loves Enrique?


No, I think three cups
is probably enough.

My old man?

Just the check, thanks.

Which is why we vent a roof
before breaking a window.

Thing about fire, it's on
the constant hunt for oxygen.

That's fascinating, though.

I thought firefighters

are supposed to break
all the windows.

Not always.

Vent behind or below
your search team

and you can kill 'em.


You think there's something

These warehouses are supposed

to follow regulations for
storing chemicals,

but there's no mechanism
to make them comply.


I'm gonna have to do
some more digging,

but, yeah, this is a story.


Don't even think about it.

This has been the most fun
I've ever had doing research,

and I'm definitely passing

the cost off
to my next publisher.

I'm serious.



Do you mind if I text you

with some follow-up questions
when they arise?

Of course, call anytime
for any reason.

What if the reason is
I'd like to see you again?

Yeah, well,
I gotta get up early.

No, of course.
Sorry, I don't...

No, no, no, it's not...
It's not you. I...

Matt, the woman
you mentioned earlier,

the one I remind you of.

I'm guessing you're not over
her yet and that's fine.

We're separating.
Or divorcing.

But... Honestly,
I'm not even sure.

I'm sorry.
Nah, it's my issue.

I'm dealing with it.

Well, when you get it all
figured out,

give me a call.

Okay, guys, it's cool.

We can change it back to sports.

No, no, no, no.

Look, I appreciate that you
guys are taking this seriously,

but you don't have to...

Do you think I'm gonna be
kept in the dark

as to whether Rosalita chooses
Enrique or Fernando?

Not a chance.

Okay, but... Quiete.

And asientete.

Um... Well, turns out
that her twin sister

just got back from the convent.



I'm sorry.

It's typical.

but don't beat yourself up.

I mean, you were trying
to help the firehouse.

You did the right thing.


You know what?
I am just gonna...

get out of your hair.


I'll be right there.

Tell Boden I had to go to Med.

Benny had a stroke.

Excuse me.

Do you have any information on
a Benjamin Severide?

Admitted for a stroke.

Let me check.


I'm sorry.

We did everything we could.

Your father passed away
ten minutes ago.

I'm so sorry.


Hey, can I... Yes, of course.

I can cover for you.
Thank you.

I'm gonna call in for relief

so we can all go.

Can I have everyone's
attention, please?

Just received word from
Chicago Med...

Benny Severide died before
Kelly could make it over there.

He's gonna need your support
right now.

I've gone ahead and taken
the house out of service.

So go.
I'll join you as soon as

a replacement
battalion chief arrives.

The cleaning lady
at his place came in

and he'd been alone for...

Kelly, can you come
with me, please?

Came as soon as I heard.


They took him back.

Okay, listen, I know
I don't know most of you,

but I've been in this
position before

and I know that when one person
in the firehouse loses a parent

the whole house grieves.

All I can tell you is what
your brother needs right now.

He needs your love, he
needs your sympathy,

and he needs to know you care.

You'll think he's aware
of these things already,

but he can't hear them enough.

Trust me.

I have an office here
at the hospital.

My doors are always open.

Thanks, Chaplain.

ADC Gorsch.


I wanted to alert you

as to why I took 51
out of service.

You don't have to alert me
to anything anymore.

I don't know how you did it.

I don't know which rock
you picked up and threw,

but congratulations on your aim.

Commissioner Grissom has
recalled me to headquarters.

Said my time would be better
spent outside the field.

Said he's expecting your call.

So I will retreat,
regroup, rethink...

and wait for another

Deputy Gorsch...

close the door when you leave.

May I speak to Commissioner
Grissom, please?

Battalion Chief Wallace Boden.



they asked Kelly where
to deliver the remains.

So he looked a bit overwhelmed,

but he wanted me to tell
you not to wait around

because, you know,
he knows how you all are,

and he also wanted me to say

that if we take it
to Herrmann's house

he will join us later.

It's good by me.
I'll let Cindy know.

All right.

Um, no, no. I can stay.

All right,
just make sure he comes.

He shouldn't be alone.
Yeah, of course.

I will.
All right.

All right,
let's regroup at Herrmann's.

The last thing I said to him...

was that you were a better
father to me than he ever was.

And then...

then he does nothing.

I ask him for one thing

despite every alarm bell in
my head telling me not to...

It's the same ol' Benny.

He never... You don't know.

Your father stepped in, Kelly.

He stepped up with Grissom.

I've just spoken with
the Commissioner.

He met with him personally,

talked about the situation
in 51.

About how it not only
affected me,

but the whole house,
how it affected you.

Every bit of goodwill,

every piece of political

every favor he was ever owed,

he put it on the line

to appeal to the Commissioner
to back off of 51,

and it worked.

Gorsch is gone.

Your father told Grissom

that I am the type of leader

who molds good men
into great ones,

and that you, Kelly...

You're all the proof he needs
to know that that's true.

Those were the exact words
of your father.
