  • During a fire drill, the Laramie firemen crash into each other sparking an argument. Lily steps in to break it up, and Dan suggests that they make her the new fire chief. Meanwhile, outlaws plan to rob the bank using a barn fire as a diversion.moreless

    9.0
    This was a good mix of both serious and humor. You had the humor of Lily trying to run the fire department while wearing high heels and an evening gown. Then you had the serious of bank robbers setting a barn on fire as a diversion to take the money since the barn was on the other side of town from the bank. They first slug Johnny over the head and tie him up. Dan frees him, and while Johnny recovers Dan gets slugged over the head and taken hostage. During the standoff, Johnny does manage to shoot one of them in the shoulder. Then we get the woman's ingenuity from Lily of using the firehose to soak the crooks into letting Dan go. The closing scene was priceless with Lily chuckling at Dan being all wet, and Dan still trying to look dignified even though he is soaked to the bone. They talked about her spark, and they do have a great one between them.moreless

    • Lily: You need to get some dry clothes on!
      Dan: I know...I'm all wet.
      Lily: Now you said that, I didn't!

    • Dan and Lily at the end of the show:
      "You know, that fire hat does do something for you, Lily - I think I detect a dangerous spark in your eye."
      "Now, Dan, that's one spark the Laramie Fire Brigade will never put out!"

    • After Dan suggests the town would be better off if Lily were made the Chief of the Fire Brigade, and she's unanimously elected right then, Johnny looks at Dan. "A lady fire chief?"
      Dan says,"Sometimes I talk when I should listen."

    • Lily and Dan:
      "Think this fire hat does anything for me, Dan?"
      "Aw, it's a silly-looking thing."
      "I think your jealous."
      "Hah!"
      "I have admired fire engines and firemen ever since I was a little girl. Firemen-especially volunteer firemen-are the bravest, finest, truest, and best men in all the world...with the possible, just possible exception of lawmen." (She blinks at him.)
      He covers his heart and looks touched. "Thank you, ma'am."
