♪♪♪♪ -Got my discharge? -[ Sighs ] Got to be honest. I’m just not comfortable
signing off on you going back to work yet. -You’re gonna keep me
from working. -Look.
I’ll make you a deal. Commit to some therapy —
twice a week, once a week. -You don’t get it. I can’t be a firefighter
if I have PTSD. -What, you can’t be
a firefighter and have feelings? Look. I have no problem keeping this
out of your chart, if that’ll make you feel better. -If I see a shrink,
people are gonna find out. I can’t have that. -Tell me something. When I asked you to close
your eyes earlier today, what did you see? What did you really see? Otis, you can tell me. -Okay. I had to get a mom and a baby
out of the building. I lost contact. Told her not to get
in the elevator. She got in the elevator. The elevator got stuck. When we finally got
the doors open… there they were… [ Voice breaking ] burned alive. Their faces were gone,
but I knew it was them. [ Sighs ] I can’t get it out of my head. ♪♪♪♪ -It’s called
an intrusive memory. We can help you with that. -Dr. Charles… [ Speaking foreign language ] Means “Life’s not a stroll
across a meadow.” These things I see?
They’re part of the job. Every firefighter sees them. ♪♪♪♪ We cope. ♪♪♪♪ I’m out of here. You want to destroy my life, write whatever you want
on your chart. ♪♪♪♪
