Although they are still mourning the death of their son, Tommy and Janet are moving forward with their separation. Tommy is also still trying to maintain his sobriety while now bogged down with new responsibilities, which include caring for his father. Sean Garrity has struck up a secret relationship with Tommy's sister Maggie, and unfortunately for him, he's really starting to fall for her. Sheila finds condoms in her son Damian's room, and asks Tommy to have a conversation with him about it. In confronting Damian, Tommy learns that the teenager is carrying on an affair with one of his teachers, Mrs. Turbody. And when the city's no-smoking ban threatens the firehouse, the crew tries to make things interesting by starting a big wager on whether they can quit smoking. Written by WyattJones

Great Show.
10 June 2006 | by lisaboston71See all my reviews

It's getting Better and Better, Scene by Scene. A joy to wait for to watch. It has a story of Gavin's life (Leary), the reality of the life of a Fireman dealing with his inner demons, a divorce...etc (Watch it yourself and see) Dennis is getting better and better. I enjoy watching him. Aside the drama, through these realities of each member of the cast there is also comic relief, which I praise the writers on. You need it here and there, and it is there.

In this-episode I found Lenny Clarke (Uncle Teddy) keeping me in stitches when he yells out: "Goddammit Jerry, where the hell are my handcuffs? Jesus, what are you, taking a nap? I could'a killed another five people in here already. Come on, let's go." Then this bald headed prison Guard (whoever he was) comes in (yea, yea, yea like) to cuff Clarke. Funny.
