Fire trucks scream down the street. Have I ever mentioned that I live across the street from a firehouse? It's all volunteer, so the dudes don't live there like they do on this show. But what I don't get is why, in this day and age, we still need fire whistles or sirens or whatever. Don't they all have pagers? Because that thing is really loud, and it always seems to go off at 4 AM. Plus, the area I live in is pretty rural, so I doubt all the volunteers live within hearing range anyway. But I digress. In the truck, Garrity asks Franco if he's made the call about the calendar. Franco says they need a picture, and when Garrity says he doesn't have one, Franco offers to take one. Tommy asks what they're talking about, and Franco tells him, as Garrity adds that Franco gets to pick his own month. Newbie takes the bait and asks what month Franco wants. Garrity suggests February, to work the Valentine angle. Franco quickly says that it's the shortest month of the year, so no go. Newbie asks what's a good month. Franco says you don't want December, because no one will see it until the end of the year, so you have to get in the first half of the year. He guesses he'll take April or May. Tommy looks disgusted, and Newbie looks fascinated. Franco concludes, "Yeah, it's a science. And I'm a mad scientist."
The truck pulls up to a building on fire. Chief calls in on his radio as a woman clutches his arm, sobbing. Chief yells out instructions to Tommy as he heads up the fire escape. Inside, on the first floor, a shopkeeper tries to throw water on the flames, but the firefighters pull him out. Moments later, the fire is out. Franco finds a disposable camera in the shop and suggests that they do Garrity's photo shoot right now. Garrity takes off his helmet and coat, and Franco tells him to pull up his shirt so they can see his abs. Franco starts snapping photos as Lou asks what they're doing. Garrity explains, and Lou asks if they're doing "an all-geek theme this year." Lou demonstrates how Garrity should pull his shirt up, and then shows how to breathe out like he's just come out of a fire and is getting his first breath of fresh air. Garrity agrees that it's hot. Lou continues to art-direct the photo shoot, ordering Garrity to lean forward to flex his muscles, and then to show a little nipple. He even says, "We're losing our light." Hee! Lou asks Chief is he has any suggestions. Chief says, "Yeah, I got a suggestion for the three of you. You go right from here down to the health office, and you have your testosterone checked, because you're all down a quart." Chief walks out, and Lou continues to show Garrity how to pose.
