9-1-1: Lone Star (2020–…): Season 3, Episode 18 - A Bright and Cloudless Morning - full transcript

The 126 come together when one of their own is trapped after a building explosion. Owen reflects on his 9/11 experience, TK and Carlos come to a decision and Tommy and Julius decide on their future.

You guys have
the most sophisticated

health and fitness algorithm
on the market.

But you're broke.


Because we don't do it
for the money.

I do. We're just
not making any.

What? It's true, Brandy.

It's because you don't have
the right exposure.

I'm not interested
in your PR, Max.

MAX: I could just
buy you outright.

But I'd rather
have you on board.

Alright, round two,
here we go.

I don't know how you got me
another shot at this,

but, thanks, Dad.

Well, Wyatt, you didn't
mess it up the first time, I did.

And, uh, I ain't exactly
got you another shot yet.

Hold on, you haven't
spoken to him yet?

You really think you're just
gonna waltz into Max Keller's office

and have
a conversation with him?

Yeah, that's
pretty much the idea.

Watch this.


You guys incubate
your next app here

inside our walls.

And I will put the full might
of Tele-Lively

behind you when you launch.


Folks been complaining

of a rotten egg smell
in the lobby.

- GAS WORKER: Just the lobby?
- (sighs)

Show me where the meter's at.

- Basement. This way.
- Basement.

MAX: We are actually
bringing in a pastry chef...

Hey. You can't go in there.

JUDD: It's only gonna take a second.


Howdy, yourself.

Sorry to interrupt
your meeting here.

I think you met
my son yesterday.

- Wyatt Harris.
- What-what do I do with that?

- (Max laughs)
- The kid in the suit.

Agent Smith.

Okay. Okay. Thank you.

And now I get to meet his dad.

This is, this is,
this is too good.

Yeah, well, I understand that he
kind of belly-flopped the interview,

but that was my fault
'cause I sent him in here

dressed up
in that monkey suit.

The truth about my son is,
he's brilliant.

He's a really kind kid.

And he's graduating next week
as valedictorian.

And, you know, I think he'd bring
a lot of value to your company.

So this is me
just coming in to ask

if you'd be willing
to give him another shot.

You remind me of my father.

- Oh.
- I hate my father.

So why don't you please
take your giant crutches

and just mosey on
out of here... in peace,

or I will call security.

Mechanical room's right here.

Ninety-eight PPM and climbing.

We shouldn't be down here.
We have to evacuate.

What-what-what was that?

Oh, my God.

(alarm blaring)

Y'all get down
and cover your heads.


(rumbling continues)

(theme music playing)


You are a terrible alarm clock.

Oh, come on.

I thought that that was better

than the traffic report.

(laughs) I'll say.

But now I don't wanna
get out of bed and I...

No, don't. Don't.

Bad, bad alarm clock.
Bad alarm clock.

(Gwyneth chuckles)
Owen, I have a deposition.

- Skip it.
- I can't skip it.

They're making me partner.

Hmm. Quit.

And TK needs to get to school.

Well, he's seven. He can walk.

Wow, we are really

full of good suggestions
this morning, aren't we?

Full of something.

This is a perfect moment.

We should make it last.

You can't preserve
a perfect moment.

That's why
they call it a moment.

And I have a deposition.

Well, we have a lifetime
of perfect moments ahead of us.


DR. JACOBS (echoing):
It's not what I'm hoping to see,

but your CT scan does show
a new mass in your right lung.

It doesn't necessarily mean

that it's a recurrence
of the cancer.

It could be a few things.

So we're not leaping
to any conclusions.

We're just, we're gonna take
this one step at a time, okay?

Owen, did you hear
anything I just said?

(scoffs) Yeah, I heard
CT scan, mass, lung.

And did you also hear me say

that we are gonna take
this one step at a time?

- I thought we got all of it.
- We did.

So what is that,
it's new cancer?

We don't even know
if this is cancer.

We need to do a biopsy.

So if you have time,
I'd like to do that now.

You know, send a sample
right away to the lab.

(exhales deeply)


I walk into the loft,

Carlos is sitting
at the counter

cool as a breeze...

Which is that man's
resting state.


And he was updating his will.

Was he taking you out of it?

What? No.

You guys don't think
that's morbid

that he was just sitting there

with his last will and testament
like it was Sudoku?

I mean, I didn't even know
he had a will.

So then we got
into this stupid fight

because now he's on me
because I don't have a will.

Hold up.
You don't have a will?

- You do?
- Yeah.

Bro, we risk
our lives every day.

Plus it's just
sound financial planning.

Alright, now you
sound like Carlos.

TK, if anyone on this planet
should have a will, it's you.

- Me?
- Yeah, you.

Near-death experience guy.
You're like the NDE MVP.

Do you remember when you got
hypothermia saving that kid?

Or when you got shot
by that other kid?

Mm-hmm. Bro, maybe you should
stay away from kids.

No, you guys don't get it.

The only reason I survived
those close calls

is because I don't have a will.

Because that makes sense.

I'm serious.

Once I sign that dotted line,
that's it.

The Grim Reaper
is gonna collect his due.

- Good God, that is dark.
- It's kind of mental.

It's idiotic.

Death isn't a credit card debt,
it's a part of life.

And a hazard of this job.

You can't cheat it.

So stop acting like a child,

get your act together.


(knock on door)

Captain Strand.

Captain Vega.

Owen, is everything okay?


No, Uh... it's hard to say.

What's going on?

I went to my oncologist

who I thought was
no longer my oncologist.

I'd had a physical
and there's a...

there's a mass in my lung.

Oh, Owen. I'm so sorry.

They did a biopsy and...
now I just have to wait.

My plan was to come
right down here and tell TK,

but, uh, being candid with him
about my health status

has always been a weak spot.

And did you?


But I did tell him
he needed a will.

He needed a will?

And that he should grow up
and stop acting like a child.

Not terrible advice.

I think a bomb just went off!

Okay, sir,
I need you to slow down

and give me that address again.

WYATT (over phone):
3-2-1-1 Nueces Street!

The new Tele-Lively Building!

Okay, the Tele-Lively building
on Nueces Street.

Help is on the way.

Can you give me your name?

Yeah, my name is Wyatt.

Wyatt Harris!

Please hurry!

Half the building came down!

My dad's inside!
I have to go get him!

Okay, Wyatt, I need you
to stay away from the building.

Don't try to go
in there yourself, okay?

We need to keep you safe.

- Wyatt?
- WYATT: Grace?

Grace? Is that you?

Wyatt, what's happening,

I don't know. I don't know.

There was just an explosion

and then
the building fell, Grace.

- I don't know.
- Are you hurt?

No, I was outside
in Judd's truck.

Wyatt, where's Judd at?

He's in there.



(glass shatters)

No. No...



Oh, God.


- Who's hurt?
- LYLE: I think I'm okay.

- Brandy?
- Yeah, I think so.

I'm-I'm okay.

What the hell happened?

JUDD (coughs): Some sort
of a structure failure.

Yeah, there was an explosion.

Yeah, I heard a big boom
before everything went down.

We gotta get outta here.

There's a stairwell
on this hall.

Let's go.

No, no, no.
Don't take those stairs. Don't.

Why the hell not?

JUDD: 'Cause it looks to me like we're on

the side of the building
that collapsed.

So we need to move away
from the failure

and find another way out.

Wait, why should
we listen to you?

JUDD: 'Cause I'm 20 years a firefighter.

If you stick with me,
I'll get you out of here.

You are a cripple.

I'm a firefighter.

(clears throat)

(groans sharply)




- JUDD (on phone): Gracie.
- Ohh!

Judd... Thank you, God.

Are you okay?

Still kickin'.

As much as I can
kick these days.


It's 9-1-1.

9-1-1 called him?

Yeah, I'm sticking
with that dude.

I take you got wind
of what happened here.

All we know is that there's been
a partial building collapse,

but there's no word
on what caused it.

Did you hear from Wyatt?

'Cause I left him
parked out front.

Wyatt's fine, baby.
He's just worried about you.


But he does know you're alive,

so let's keep it that way.

Do you know
what floor you're on?

Well, we-we was on
the sixth floor,

now I reckon
we're on the fifth.

Who's we?

JUDD: I'm here with three civilians.

Whoa, whoa. Wait a minute.

There was another fella
in your office. Where is he?

- Hugo. Hugo!
- Hugo.

- MAX: Hugo?
- LYLE: Hugo!

- BRANDY: Hugo!
- MAX: Hugo?

- BRANDY: Hugo!
- (indistinct chatter over phone)


- (mumbles weakly)
- JUDD: Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Thank God. He's hurt!

Hang on. Hang on...

It's okay. We're here.

You're gonna be okay.
You're gonna be okay.

Come on, we need help!

We got a firefighter here.
It's okay.

It's okay. We're here.
It's okay, Hugo, we're here.

Hang on, partner.

Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

Don't touch that,
no, no, no!

Hey, anybody have something
we can wrap him up?

- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
- Quick, quick, quick.

- (Brandy crying)
- JUDD: Hang on.

Oh, my God, this isn't
happening, this isn't happening.

Help me.

Hey, hey, hey.
Partner, stay with me. Don't go.

Look, I got you,
I got you, I got you.

Hang on, hang on, hang on,
hang on. Stay with me.

(Hugo groaning)

Yeah. Stay with me.
Stay with me.

- (Hugo coughs)
- JUDD: Easy.

Stay with me. Right here.
Right here, right here.

Hang on, hang on.

Come on. Come on, come on,
come on, come on.

Stay with me.


(Brandy weeps)

Oh, God! (Grunts)

Grace, we lost a man here.

Help is on the way, sweetheart.

Can't get here soon enough.


(siren wailing in distance)

You ever see
anything like this?

(wailing continues)

Oh, I have.

Alright, let's find the IC.

TK, Nancy, go get as many
supplies as you can carry.

We're gonna join triage.


Hey. Isn't that Judd's kid?

Report is some kind of explosion
at the sublevel.

Folks on the lower floors
heard a boom,

followed by hammering
all around.

It's the cracking of rebar
in its concrete.


A reinforced shear wall
came down,

took three support
columns with it.

It's a wonder this much of it
is still standing.

Well, we gotta get these
people outta here now.

The good news is they were
renovating the building,

so it's mostly unoccupied.

There's still some folks
stuck on an upper floor.

Captain Strand,
one of 'em's yours.

Judd Ryder's in there.

(Judd groans)

GRACE: Judd, the 126 is on the scene.

I'm connecting you
to Captain Strand. Go ahead.

Hey, Judd,
how you doing in there?

JUDD (over radio): I'm more,
more or less in one piece now, Cap.

But me and the folks
I'm up here with

could use an assist getting out.

OWEN: Yeah, that's what
we're working on right now.

Listen, I need you
to avoid the stairwells

that are closest to you,
they're compromised.

We've got reports
of spot fires.

You'd asphyxiate
before you even

made it to the ground floor.

I'm pretty sure the elevators
ain't working either.

Alright, I've got the
building plans in front of me.

Captain Strand,
can you describe the damage?

OWEN: The lobby's gone.

North side is a no.

You're gonna have to lead people to
the southeast corner of the building.

Those stairwells
are gonna be your best bet.

Alright, I do see a stairwell
on the southeast corner,

but it's gonna be about
a 300-foot trek to get there.

That's assuming
that the way is clear.

Then it's just...

- Six flights down.
- GRACE: Five, sweetheart.

You guys took the first flight
down the hard way, remember?

My leg's broke again, Grace,

and it's screaming at me
pretty good right now.

GRACE: Baby, listen.

Every part of you
is gonna be screaming

if you don't get out of there.

OWEN: Judd, could you
handle two stories?

There's some kind of
a roof garden

on the southeast side.

Yep, two flights
is better than five.

That sounds like a plan.

I'm gonna have to put you
in my pocket, Gracie.

I'm gonna need both my hands.

Hang up and get moving.

I love you.

I love you, too.

You get home, okay?

Hey, you know where that roof
deck is that he's talking about?

Uh, yeah, yeah. I was gonna
put a members-only club there.

Get these three there
as fast as you can, sir.

- What about you?
- JUDD: Don't wait for me.

I'll be right there.
Y'all go ahead.


Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

- Just lean on me.
- JUDD: Mr. Keller...

No, no. We would all be dead
of smoke inhalation already

if it wasn't for you, okay?

Lyle, Lyle,
get on the other side.

I'm stronger than you.

- Alright. We got this.
- Let's go, let's go.

Move, move, move,
move, move, move.

My wife and my daughter
will be grateful to y'all.

And, Mr. Keller,
maybe we could have a word

about my son getting this job.

If we make it out.

He's already got the job, okay?

And if we actually
get out of here,

he's already
been promoted. Twice.

- Yes, sir.
- Okay, let's go.

Let's go, let's go.

It's my fault he's in there.

If I hadn't tanked
on my first interview...

If you hadn't tanked
on your first interview,

you'd have that job.

Which means he would
have been in there anyway

looking for you.

Trust me when I tell you.

He prefers it this way.

Alright, 126.

Stage a ladder down here.

Extend the aerial
up to the roof deck.

- MARJAN: On it, Cap.
- PAUL: Okay, we got it.

Did you talk to him?
Is he okay?

He's tough.

We're gonna
get him out of there, alright?

Hey, Captain, you said there
was a sublevel gas explosion?

Most likely. We shut
the mains off the street level.

The gas company
didn't do it, did they?

CAPTAIN ANDREWS (over radio):

I saw the guy
driving the truck go in there

right before the explosion
with a security guard.

- You see them come out?
- No.

Alright, there are
more people in this building.

- Mateo.
- Yep?

You and two more
strong backs.

We're going in.

were at the point of ignition,

their chances
of being survivors...

Is greater than you think.

Excuse me. Coming through.

So clear out.

Austin FD.

Anybody in here?

(lights fizzling)

MATEO: Cap, we sure
they shut off the gas?

PPMs are off the charts.

There was enough gas
in the explosion

to bring the house down,

so there's probably
some pockets left.


Ladder 126.
This is Strickland.

We're in position but we're
not seeing any signs of Judd.

(Judd groaning)

MAX: Okay. Okay.
Now for the fun part.

- (Judd wincing)
- BRANDY: Come on.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

- BRANDY: We got you.
- (Judd panting and groaning)


We're good.
One at a time.


OWEN: Hello?


Over here!

Down here.


Hey, friend, Owen Strand,
Austin FD.

We're gonna get you
outta there.

Ah, please help me.

Okay, okay, okay.
Come on, come on, come on.

- (Judd groaning)
- BRANDY: Alright.

- Mateo?
- MATEO: Yeah.

Gonna get this
concrete off of him.

another fella down here.

Gas worker. I've been calling
to him, but he ain't answering.

OWEN: Alright, come on.

One, two, three.


I want everybody outta here.

Turn off all the backup power.

Put him on a backboard,
get him out.

- I'm gonna keep looking.
- MATEO: Wait, Cap.

By yourself?

I mean, how are you gonna
get him out if you find him?

Haven't you ever heard
of the fireman's carry?

Go on. Clear it out.

Keep me on the radio.

Okay. Here-here we go.

(groaning sharply)

Just a few more.
Just a few more.

- Come on, you're almost there.
- MAX: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

BRANDY: Let's go.


- MATEO: Careful. Careful.
- (groaning)

MATEO: I know.

- BRANDY: Okay. Alright.
- (Judd groans)

We can do this.

MARJAN: I see them.

(Judd groaning)

Hey, 126, we got eyes
on firefighter Ryder,

plus four civilians.

Everyone looks to be
in one piece.

Listen, you just couldn't stay
out of the action, could ya?

I'll tell you what, after this, I
might never leave the house again.

- Whoa, whoa.
- There he is.

There he is!
Let's get that basket.

Paul, don't drop
my husband, okay?

PAUL (over phone): We'll
handle him with utmost care.



There you go...




(people screaming)

You good?

MATEO: You guys alright?

(Marjan groans)

(yelling) Captain Strand!

Captain Strand, do you copy?

Captain Strand!

Captain Strand, do you copy?

(building creaking)

(groans weakly)

(radio static)

Strand 126 to IC.

- Anyone copy?
- (radio static)

I'm in the basement.
I don't see any point of egress.

Does anyone copy?

(man coughing)


MAN (weakly):
Yeah. Over here.



(man coughs)

OWEN: Alright.

Try not to move.


I pretty much
got that one covered

without even trying.

You FD?

Yeah. My name's Owen.
What's your name?

- Manny.
- Hey, Manny.

I'm gonna try to
get you out of here.

And after that,
who's gonna get you out?

My team.
They're just outside.

They should be here any minute.

If they can find us.

Yeah, I may have to give 'em
a hand with that.

(Manny coughs)

You see the second one?

- OWEN: The second one?
- MANNY: Yeah.

I heard over my radio
there was a second one.

- You have a radio?
- Yeah.

Can't seem to grab it right now.

(Manny coughing)


This might be loud.

Think they can hear that?

The seismic sensors will.

It'll turn this whole pile
into one big microphone.

MANNY: Awesome.

(Manny coughing)

Alright, I gotta figure out
a way to get you out of there.

(coughing continues)

Let me find something
to pry this off ya.

(Owen grunts)

Let me know if I can help.

Hey, hey.

You can help by staying awake.

Tell me a little bit
about yourself.

Got a wife?

Had a... had a wife.

OWEN: Yeah, me too.

Got any kids?

Two girls.

Emma, she's 36

and Mya...

I guess she'll be 28 next month.

Man, what is your secret?

You don't look old enough
to have kids that old.

Well, they were 16
and 8 when I died, so...

That's the math, right?

(metal thuds)

Manny. Manny Canales. NYPD.

You and I were in the Concourse
the day the South Tower fell.

Which is how
we ended up like this. Yeah.


Give it a rest, Owen.

You never get
this thing off me, remember?

What are you doin'
down here, man?

I'm not here.

Obviously, uh...

I must be bleeding out
under a different building.

Yeah, well, maybe.

You've been stuck
down here longer than I was.

See, me, I... I was only
like this for 29 minutes

and that second tower came down.

I was done, but you... you...

you've been down here,
what, 20 years, right?

That's the math.

So why you keep
coming back, man?

I don't.

It must have been on my mind.

They told me today
that my cancer might be back.

MANNY: Cancer?

A lot of people got sick.

The guys who went back in.

And people who were just there.

They say 3,000 people died
that day, but it was more.

It was...

thousands more.

MANNY: Man, it sucks
to be a statistic, man.


How can I get away from a day

that keeps coming for me?

This day ain't comin' for you.

You... You keep
going back to it.

That's not true.

MANNY: Then why you
keep that thing on your desk?

It's a reminder.

To never forget.

MANNY: Nobody asking
you to forget, brother.

Hell, far too many people
already have.

But you don't need to be,
you know, keeping a piece of...

what they did to us

and turning it
into some holy relic.

I hope that's not
what I'm doing.

MANNY: Look, man,
this day may get you yet.

But you need to stop
acting like it already has.

You need to stop living in it.

You know,
you need to stop trying

to make things
turn out different.

I'm not.

MANNY: Here it comes.

(rumbling and thudding)

OWEN: (groans) I'm
gonna get you outta here.



Welcome back, Cap.

We weren't sure we were gonna
get a chance to see you again, man.

Scared the hell out of us, Dad.

We're all pretty worried.

Everybody's been
praying for you, Captain Strand.

That's right.

MATEO: I knew
you'd pull through.

He did say that.

What happened to Manny?

Did he make it?

Who's Manny?

GWYNETH: He died.


You can't save everyone.

I know.

I'm not sure you do.

I wish I could
have saved you.

I'm sorry.

It wasn't your fault.

We never should have gotten
out of the bed that morning.

The world wouldn't
let us stay in bed.

I wish I could go back.

GWYNETH: You can't
preserve a perfect moment.

"That's what makes it a moment."

(rapid beeping)

You need to go forward, Owen...

not back.

(choir singing)

He's alive!

(singing continues)


(singing continues)

(singing continues)

(weakly) Hey, son.

Hey, Dad.

How are you feeling?

Like a building fell on me.

(TK chuckles softly)

I told 'em
you were indestructible.

I take after my son.

Did everybody get out okay?

TK: Yeah.

Judd rebroke his leg,
but he'll be okay.

We saved a lot of people, Dad.

That's good.

They found something else.

Who did?

TK: The doctors when
they were examining you.

(inhales deeply)

The spot on my lungs.

You knew?


For a while.

I wish I knew why they told you.

TK: You made me
your medical proxy

when you went in for surgery,

What's going on, Dad?

We did a biopsy.

The doctor says it could be...

a number of things that...

Doesn't necessarily mean
that the cancer is back.

But it might be.

It might be.

Well, I can't do it again, Dad.

Pretty sure I'd be the one
doing it again, son.

No, I mean,
I can't lose another parent.

Not now.

Well, that is not something
either one of us

are gonna have a say in, TK.

No one's guaranteed anything.

It's why you make a will.

It's not to prepare for the end

because that comes
no matter what we do.

It's so the moment
is taken care of

so we can live in this one.

'Cause that's all
any of us have.

(TK sighs)

(softly) Carlos?



- What? Do you smell smoke?
- No, no.

Is the lizard back?

Hey, no, no, no,
there's no lizard.

Hey, everything's okay, relax.

I was relaxing.

What's going on?

I'm ready to make my will.

- You're ready to make your will?
- I'm ready to make my will.

You're ready to make
your will now?

TK: Mm-hmm.

At... 3:18 in the morning?

Yeah. I don't wanna
waste another minute.

You think you can
survive until dawn?

I mean, you put it
off this long. I...

It'll be easy because I'd just
leave everything to my husband.


Marry me.


Baby, I'm-I'm serious.
Let's get married.

Yeah, TK, we've had
a pretty dramatic week.

Baby, this isn't,
this isn't drama.

- TK, we're both...
- This isn't...

It's not drama. It's not drama.

It's love.

The kind that
you can't get away from.

And maybe my life
has been scarred with loss.

And at times
it's felt inescapable.

But that's the risk
of love, right?

For the first time in my life...

the love that I feel

is infinitely more powerful

than the fear of losing it.

And every moment that we're not
married is a wasted moment.

And, baby, we...
we only get so many.

- And every day...
- Tyler.

Can I say yes now?

Can I say yes now?

I sure hope so.

Then, yes...

a thousand times yes.

You're not just saying yes

so you could go
back to sleep, right?

I mean, maybe. Maybe.

(indistinct announcement
over PA)

Well, well, look who's
flaunting their uprightness.

- About to get sprung?
- Yeah.

Not a moment too soon.

You know, I think
they were thinking of

renaming this entire wing
after the Strand family.

I bet you that comes
with a hell of a parking spot.

Where are the girls?

Oh, I sent 'em home.

Poor Grace
now has two relations

that aren't walking
very well, so...

When is the new
recovery time line?

She told me about three weeks
more than the old time frame.

- That's a lucky break.
- It's two.

I got, I got six lucky screws
in there too.


How about you,
the department letting you

get right back at it?

In a couple of days.

Captain Scofield's there now.

But I hear Marjan
is really running the show.

Well, I bet you old Scofield'll
be happy when you get back.


when the day finally does come

and they really do
have to fill that chair,

I just want you to know
the department

has my recommendation
in file.

Assuming you ever
get back on your feet...

the 126 is your command.

It's your house, Judd.

Always has been.

I appreciate that, Owen.

(pop music playing
over speakers)

So do we make a speech?

We could.

Something heartfelt,

thanking them
for being there for us?

Sounds good.

Or we could put
a ring on your finger

and you could ask them, "Does
this make me look engaged?"

Let's stick
with heartfelt, okay?

- Yeah.
- (knock on door)

- Hey!
- Hey.

TK: Hey, guys.

Hey, man.

You look great, man.

- Thank you.
- Thank you.


- This is amazing. What a spread.
- Uh, thank you for coming.

Okay, this looks amazing.

TK: Where's Nance and Mateo?

Oh, they were making out
in the parking lot,

so they missed the elevator.

Not that we saw them.

Hey, hey, party can start now.

Wow, look at that spread!

- Didn't wanna hold the elevator, huh?
- Nope.

Guys, we are so happy
that you're with us today.

Yeah, to get that beat down
coming your way.

Paladins never say die.

Actually, before we start...


We just wanted to say
that you guys have been just...

Hold up.
Is this Taleggio cheese?

And Wagyu salami?

It is, in fact.

Um, but I just wanted to say
that you guys have been...

No, no.
Something's going on here.

(softly) Heartfelt
speech? Heartfelt speech?

Guys, that champagne?

No, it's sparkling cider.

Because TK doesn't drink.

But there's gonna be a toast.

- No way.
- Yes way.

- Yes way?
- Yes way?

Oh, my God.

Yes way.

MARJAN: Oh, my God.

Okay, I'm a little lost here.

ALL: They're engaged!

- No way!
- (cheering)


Yo, I'm so happy for you!

- Dibs on best man.
- No, no, no, no.

- That is not how this works.
- It is when you say it first.

First? You were literally
the last one to know.

Guys, guys, it's okay
because we get two best men.

- PAUL: Hey!
- But do they have to be men?

Well, yeah, no.

- (overlapping chatter)
- (laughter)


Aw. Mm.

Thank you for making this work
on such short notice.

TOMMY: Of course.

Your message said
you had news.

I do indeed.

Oh, I hope you don't mind,
I took the liberty of ordering.

Oh, okay. Well, what is it?

Just taste it first.

Um, it's better
than explaining it.

TOMMY: Mm! Mm-hmm.

- OWEN: Right?
- Is that almond milk?

It's called a Gibraltar.

And it turns out
it is the perfect beverage

with which to celebrate...

my fungal infection.

- Your fungal infection?
- My fungal infection.

You have a fungal infection?

I do. Inside me.

Oh, that's fantastic news.

Oh, congratulations.

Well, on not having cancer,

which I'm assuming
that's what this means.

Indeed it does.

You ever heard of it?

I most certainly have.

It's an occupational hazard
for us.

It shows up as a nodule,

which can look
a lot like cancer.

- Turns out it is not.
- Yes!

My oncologist, who is now once
again no longer my oncologist,

tells me I'm 100%
still in remission.


I just wanted to say that
to another living human being.

Well, I'm honored
you found me qualified.

Well, honestly,
my fungal infection

was just an elaborate ruse

because it has taken too long
for the two captains of the 126

to sit down
outside the firehouse.

And I wanted to fix it.

(chuckles) Well, you have
been buried at work.

Ahh! I see what you did there.

Congratulations, Wyatt.

Oh, there it is.

Hey, now that you got
that high school diploma,

you're ready to face the world.

You don't need nothin' else.

He's going to college!

Oh, they're just gonna ruin him.

I agree.

- See what I mean?
- Grace.

Listen, I will try
to talk to him,

it won't do no good though.

I'm proud of you, son.

Thanks, Dad.

- CHARLIE: Yeah!
- BOTH: Yeah!
