The officers experience radio problems delaying their deployment and causing Mac to reprimand them. Lately this has become a issue between him and all the officers. A call at a store being robbed has a woman taken hostage and to the roof. The officers are held off with gunfire but when they move to a different roof the hostage is left behind when she doesn't complete a jump between roofs. The officers rescue her and with the aid of Air 10 track the suspects and capture them. At the station Mac talks to Pete about a conversation with his wife. She has opened an antique shop and it is taking her time which Mac does not like putting a strain on their marriage. A call about a runaway elderly woman has her husband mad because his wife goes to a pizza restaurant to listen to a piano player there. Mac arrives at the restaurant to ask Pete to pick up his kids and overhears an orderly who arrives. He states the couple has been married for sixty years but the husband can't understand his wife ...
