    Summary

    Still off balance, Buck slams his left heel onto the roof, heaving forward to catch the collar of that yellow shirt. And there’s no conscious decision making here. It’s all instinct, and he’s grateful for it. If he’d given his overzealous mind the chance to consider another way, he would have missed his shot. Instead, his arms hurl the boy into the hands of another survivor...

    And his right foot misses the edge.

    OR

    Buck catches Chris before he rolls off the firetruck, and it's him who falls back into the retreating waters of the tsunami. Unconscious and seriously injured, he's unaware that his team has been searching for him, never giving up as the days pass.

    Summary

    “We’re here for our grandson,” Helena says.
    “Chris is still sleeping,” Buck says.
    “I meant, we’re here to take him back to Texas,” Helena clarifies.
    “Yeah,” Buck says. He’s too tired, way too tired to be tactful. “Over my dead body.”

    --
    An accident on a call leaves Buck with custody of Chris after Eddie is... missing presumed.
    While they navigate their new family circumstances -- and fight to stay together, despite Eddie's parents' best efforts -- a John Doe wakes up in a coma ward with no memory of his own life beyond the knowledge he has a son named Christopher and, somehow, he needs to get home.

    Summary

    There was a snap, and a crack, and Buck was suddenly weightless. The car, the tree, Eddie, everything was falling.

    Buck was falling.

    Falling.

    Summary

    After the lawsuit, Buck decides to take a small vacation to take a break from the stress of coming to work each day to a group of people who can't forgive him. He decides to fly back to Wyoming to the ranch he worked on as a younger man. But the flight he is scheduled to take doesn't make it to its destination.

    Based on an article I read a few years back that has always stuck with me. I adapted it a little for Buck. Find it here, if you're interested:

    Summary

    “You know, being stuck here isn’t actually the end of the world,” Chimney says, coming up to the table and picking up one of the smoke detectors. “It just feels like it, Buck. Trust me, I know.”
    “I’m pretty sure it might actually be the end of the world,” Buck says. “Considering this is the sixth time I’ve lived this day.”
    Chimney stares at him for a beat and then his eyebrows lift. “Wait, are you like – dude, are you in Groundhog Day?”
