On the series finale of Rescue Me...
Tommy has a dream that everyone but Lou died in the arson explosion at the abandoned warehouse.
After Tommy writes his report about what happened (Lou's death, etc.) he decides to retire.
Meanwhile, the rest of the crew decides to leave the firehouse and go their seperate ways.
Tommy goes to the playground with Wyatt and gets into an argument. Katie tells him that being in the "real world" for Tommy isn't going to work.
On their way to spread Lou's ashes, Mike opens the box containing them and they fly all over the car and the guys inside. They replace his ashes with cake mix. Tommy reads a letter Lou left for him that tells him and the crew to stay together.
Tommy delivers his baby at the apartment. They name him Shea Gavin. Janet tells Tommy to go back to work as a firefighters.
The final sequence involves Tommy giving a speech to a new set of probies. The crew has remained together and Franco has become a Lieutenant. After his speech and recognition that sex and alcohol don't solve problems, Tommy gets into his truck and sees Lou. The two drive off.
Black Shawn: I'm thinking I got to find a nice little Korean lady with little small fingers to get down here and get that itch, you know?
Mike: Or a baby.
Black Shawn: Say what?
Mike: Babies have small fingers.
Sean: Korean babies. Even smaller fingers.

Today, we are gathered together here to honor five men, my men, my brothers. Five men who were given a choice to run, to flee for safe ground, to seek clean fresh air, or to move deeper knowing the danger, knowing that two young people, innocent kids, were crying out for help, for my men, to save them. We all know which choice they made. These men, these five extraordinary human beings will forever live in my heart and in the memory of all who knew them and in the public records of this great city as heroes, the bravest of the brave, I shed no tears. I cry out not in agony. I beseech the sky not in anger but with pride and a voice that is strong and clear. I am a better man and we are all better people for having known them. Good night, my dear friends, my five unforgettable brothers. I shall see you on the other side.Lou
