Vic in this episode

Vic wakes up in Jackson's bed starting the day with hot coffee. Later at work, she gets super excited when Ben arrives with his new aid car but stops flailing when the new chief arrives and introduces his son as their new probie. The team is called to a plane crash site but when they arrive, it turns out that it's a fuel spill at a gas station with loose live wire. Vic convinces Maya to let her walk across the pool of foam to clamp the live wire which she successfully achieves. On her way back, she slips of the foam and catches fire herself. Travis is spraying foam all over her while she runs back to them, seemingly okay. Afterwards, when Andy and Travis are scrubbing her off, Vic admits that she was evicted and is now living with Jackson without him knowing or noticing it. Meanwhile, in a drug infused hallucination, Sullivan sees Ripley and Vic making out, talking about love at the workplace. Back at the station after Maya's outburst about them all being insubordinate, Vic and Travis clean the trucks and talk about Vic's situation. When Travis asks her if she is okay, it appears as if she wants to answer but the new probie interrupts them and Vic flees without answering.

Quotes from this episode

Vic: Oh, yeah, but where is the crappy cafeteria food and the smell of sadness, huh?
Vic: You two better have your mess handled. I'm not gonna die today because you can't keep it in your turnouts.
Sullivan: Hey, w-what are you two doing there?
Ripley: What we should have done a lot more of a lot sooner.
Vic: Why? You gonna tell on us? [ chuckles ] You gonna write us up, Chief? [ both chuckle ]
Sullivan: No, but this is a slippery slope. If you love someone in your firehouse, you... you may lose judgment and the morale of the company, and lives are at stake. People may die. You can't let yourself love.
Ripley: Hey, hey, if you could stop yourself from loving who you love...
Vic: Then I'd say you're already dead. And in terms of a slippery slope...
Ripley: I'd say you're at least two doses past slippery slope.
Vic: I got evicted. [ breathes heavily ] It's a long story involving my landlady and a drippy faucet and my... my poor impulse control. But I'm out on my ass, and I haven't found a new place. But, you know, I sleep at the station three nights a week anyway, so I've just been kind of living at Jackson's place. But I kind of forgot to tell him. [ chuckles ] You know, so I've just kind of, like, had my stuff there. But it's not like he notices, because he lives in a palace. And I know I really should have told him, but he's got 800-thread-count sheets and an espresso machine, so I didn't. And you know what? I almost died just then [ chuckles ] so, you know, I just felt like I had to say something out loud. You know what I mean? [ inhales sharply ] Is that bad?
Travis: It's incredibly bad.
Andy: Y-Yes. That's super terrible.
Travis: So, when are you gonna tell Avery that you're squatting in his penthouse?
Vic: Oh, I don't know. I was thinking maybe never, 'cause he's a doctor and he should have figured it out by now. Right?
Travis: So glad I'm not straight. [ laughes ]
Vic: Shut up.
Travis: Seriously, though, are you okay?
Vic: Hey, man, how was your first day?
Emmett: Uh, yeah, interesting. I, uh, had a homeless guy walk in and kind of just camp out.
Travis: Hmm. Just like you're doing at Jackson's.
