Casey and Gabby have been working on their baby making skills, but Gabby is disappointed when she's not immediately pregnant. She gets the name of a fertility doctor from Sylvie, and convinces Matt its a good idea to go get checked out. They find out that her previous pregnancy has left her with an aneurysm. The chance of the aneurysm bursting will go up if Gabby becomes pregnant.
At a rescue site, Sylvie and Cruz meet somebody from the Indianapolis Fire Department who happens to work in equipment procurement. They're both excited about the prospect of a big sale of Slamigans...until Cruz picks up on his interest in Brett. Cruz is so upset by the man's obvious interest that he deliberately throws the sale, quoting a much higher price than the team agreed upon. Otis confronts him about the bad decisions he's been making lately, and says that his advice to ignore his feelings for Sylvie was no good. Joe argues against revealing his feelings to Brett, assuming that she's interested in the guy from Indy. But just as he's about to give up, Brett comes in with the equipment guy on the phone -- he's made a counter offer for the Slamigans. When Joe asks how she got him back to the table, she mentions it wasn't easy especially after she refused to go out with him, which gives Joe new hope. He decides to confess his feelings, but puts it off, wanting to make a grand gesture.
