    The opening is typically gripping. A developmentally delayed man runs an errand for local firemen and shortly after he leaves the fire-hall the sound of screeching brakes is heard. The firemen rush into the street and find their friend conscious but injured. He says, 'I broke my bike!' Once in the hospital, it becomes apparent that the man fled an institutionalized existence which frightened and demeaned him. His relative wants him back there against his wishes. Casey supports him but has to have an alternative to the institution in order to go to bat for him. When Casey sees how much the firemen care about him, he works with them to enable the man to become a member of the station.moreless
