Garrity and Mike are in the firehouse kitchen, telling Lou about their encounter with Katie, and how it was like something in a horror movie. Lou reminds them that she's a little girl dealing with a dead brother. Garrity and Mike aren't convinced that there's not something more to it. Grinch walks in and asks where Chief is, and Lou says that he's in the hospital dealing with his wife. Grinch asks what's wrong with her now, and Lou reports matter-of-factly that she tried to kill herself. I'm starting to think the firehouse is cursed. I'd put in for a transfer immediately. Grinch isn't even fazed by this news, and just says that Chief needs to show up for his shifts on time, and walks out. Also, what's up with Grinch's sideburns? Does he have a side gig as an extra on Deadwood? Or is he playing Murray in a movie remake of The Mary Tyler Moore Show? Oh, where have you gone, Gavin McLeod. Actually, I don't care. Lou muses that Grinch has a "heart of gold with a creamy center of pure shit."
Garrity says that he's still freaked out by the Katie thing. Lou asks if Garrity truly believes that there's a heaven where people with wings stand around on clouds. Garrity does, minus the wings part. Because that's what's implausible about the whole scenario. Lou points out that the cloud thing isn't too plausible either. Garrity says that each person has his or her own idea of heaven, and that in his heaven, there are clouds. Garrity weaves a tale of a place where there's a lot of downtime, and you can play videogames all day. But the best part in Garrity's heaven is that when you want something, like a Mountain Dew, you just think about it and the taste comes into your mouth and your thirst is quenched. Mike thinks that sounds awesome, and Lou just shakes his head.
Chief is checking Jeannie out of the hospital. The doctor asks if Chief will be able to stay home with his wife, and Chief says he has to work. The doctor asks if he can afford twenty-four-hour in-home care. Chief says he can't, so the doctor suggests moving Jeannie into an "extended-care facility." She tells Chief about one in Connecticut, run by a friend, that deals almost exclusively with Alzheimer's patients. Chief can't believe the doctor's suggesting that he move his wife into a home. The doctor asks if he'll consider it when Jeannie tries to commit suicide again, and then says, "I don't mean to be cruel." Chief replies, "No, you don't mean to be." Well, she doesn't, and he does need to do something about it. Can't he call Pete for moral support and to help him with this decision? Just in case you didn't make your healthcare decisions known to your family after the whole Terri Schiavo thing, this storyline should remind you to do it now. Even if you don't care, I can tell you that it's incredibly comforting to family to know what you would have wanted if you were capable of making the decision at the time. Okay, lecture over.
