      Ronald Bartel: Wrong question. Who isn't? It's not a spark because there's not enough damage. He wouldn't have had any fun. It's not an insurance scam because there isn't any profit.

      Brian McCaffrey: Do you know who's doing this?

      Ronald Bartel: Yes.

      Brian McCaffrey: Then tell me.

      Ronald: You want to know who? I want to know if this kid really wanted to be just like his dad.

      Firefighter Brian McCaffrey: I wanted to be him. I wanted to be him more than anything else in the world.

      Ronald: And you loved him?

      Firefighter Brian McCaffrey: Yeah.

      Ronald: And you watched him dance with the animal. You saw your dad burn.

      Firefighter Brian McCaffrey: F@#* you Ronald. Who's doing this, huh?

      Ronald: Did it look at you? Did the fire look at you? It did. Whoa. Wow. Our worlds aren't that far apart after all, are they? So, whoever is doing this knows the animal well, doesn't he? He knows him real well, but he won't let him loose. He won't let him have any fun, so he does not love him. Now who doesn't love fire? And is around trychtichlorate all day long?

      Firefighter Brian McCaffrey: [realizes who it might be] Oh my God!

      Ronald: [laughs] See... that wasn't such a long trip after all.

        Brian: DAD!

        [there is an explosion]

        His dad's helmet falls to the ground. Brian is seen crying his eyes out. Adcox runs outside with blood streaming down his cheek and he runs and hugs Brian. Brian, still crying holds his dad's helmet while photographers are photographing him.
