There has been a lot of attention about this spoiler and although I do not suspect it is a foiler, I want to warn that this could always be the case for end of the season episodes. I also want to point out that at the end of this post contains a major character spoiler so if you wish to avoid it, do not read the last paragraph.
This episode will air August 15, 2006.
The episode begins with the crew on a call at a large apartment building. They think that everything is clear until they realize that one of the back apartments have not been cleared. In that room they find a small man named Warren who is attached to a computer that allows him to breathe and speak. They guys are all amazed that the man can do this but then they realize that its going to be impossible to get Warren out of the apartment because his wheelchair and computer are too heavy to lift but he will die without the machine. Tommy has a bright idea to get the bucket and then gets Warren down with it.
Back at the firehouse the guys get into an argument about which snack foods can be considered healthy such as Mr. Goodbar because it has peanuts. Then Jerry tells them that they have another call to go to but won't explain the situation because he knows the guys are in for a real treat when they get there. When the crew finally arrives at the location they find a large black woman who has speared the fatty part of per upper arm on a metal fence spike. The woman is screaming in pain but is being very abrasive to the guys, she tells them her name is Oprah. Jerry decides that they need to get a large saw to cut out a part of the fence so she can be taken to the hospital. Oprah wants no part of this and screams at the guys not to saw at anything but instead just to get her off of the fence. Just then she faints and all the guys have to rush to hold Oprah up while they saw away at the fence.

Tommy arrives at his apartment to see a beautiful woman named Theresa with minimal clothing on. Theresa says that she is waiting for Lou and heads to the bathroom. Tommy goes into Lou's room and wants to know who the lady is but gives him props for nailing her. Tommy gives Lou "thumbs up" and leaves the room but then spots Teresa getting dressed in her nun's uniform. Later on Tommy confronts Lou about the fact that he had sex with a nun and how wrong it was. Lou's defense is that he is on an enlightened Buddhist kick and thinks there is nothing to get upset about. Lou adds that Theresa was leaving the order soon anyway and thinks he could get serious with her.
