This Koman is totally worthless,

a firefighter without a fire engine.

Let's have the mayor fire him.

He destroyed the fire engine driving back

and forth to visit his mom.

Hey, look here, the council of elders is

coming, don't let them ruin our card game!

Lemi, what are you talking about so early in the

morning! Elders, card game... For God's sake!

Come on, deal the cards.

Cut the deck.

And people make fun of us,

calling us Black Sea guys.

Who manages to start a fire in the rain?

And then can't put it out either.

Can't put out a fire in the rain!

He just stands there looking,

but can't put it out.

He says he will, but he can't...

Lemi, just shut up, will you!

My God, the man just talks way too much!

Rain slows down things.

How so?

How so? It's harderwhen it's raining.

- Hey, Koman!

- What are you talking about, you blabbermouth?

Your movie's on, son, isn't this

"Selvi Yazmalm"?

Well, now Koman's heart is on fire.

Man, we're already dead tired,

we don't want to deal with you just now.

Go watch your movie, Koman.

You chicken, why are you scared?

And he's supposed to be a fire fighter, huh?

Good God...

You just sit there and flatten your asses.

The town is on fire and you are busy

playing cards. Shame on you!

And good sir Koman just sits there.

What is he supposed to do, Uncle Yaar,

the fire engine is broken, it's not working.

It's his ass that's broken!

He's watching the same movie

the entire day.

Trkan oray is the fire!

God forbid!

Get up, man!

- Make up your mind already!

- Come on.

Well, if there is no fire brigade,

then why are we paying him?

What does the municipality do?


The mayor won't fire Koman, a new

fire engine is on the way here anyway.

Who donated it? Who sent it?

Where is it from?

I can't say! But Koman is

supposed to go get it.

Must be either from Trabzon or

Akaabat, where else can it be from?


Arakli, Arsin, Beikdz, aykara,

Srmene, alpazar, Tonya, Vakfkebir...

...Yomra, arba, Hayrat,

Dernekpazar, Dzky, Kprba?

- Nope.

- Of then!

- No, it's not Of!

- So where is it from, you fool!

Buy me a diet coke and I'll tell you.

Fk off!

- Is it from Rize?

- I won't go get it if it is from Rize!

- Like hell you won't!

- Well, I just won't!

What if the mayor gives you

two days off...

- I said I won't go!

- What if he tells you to go get it from Rize...

...and stop on the way home in Artvin.

You can visit your mother...

Leave my mother alone!

I said I won't go!

I'll go to Athens, but I won't go there!

Veysel, give me a diet coke.

- And a glass too!

- How about a wine glass! Drink up already!


Come again!?

Trabzon? Neither Karaz nor Mermer

has a fire engine...

...and we give one to Trabzon?

For God's sake, brother Sait,

this is the epitome of populism.

Well, Sait, my friend we can't act like

everybody else.

It's in our nature to help someone in need.

Please, sir, what nature? You're only

concerned about media exposure.

Sir, why don't they ask for a fire truck

from Trabzon or Rize, but us?

Friends, sometimes it is more meaningful

to put out the fire that is farther away.

It is more important to look at the

big picture, brother Sait.

The big picture, you understand?

There's definitely something in it for him...

...or why else would he be interested?

Donating a fire engine to Trabzon...

Look at it from multiple dimensions, Muharrem,

multiple dimensions!

Come on, brother Muharrem, just sign it

and pass it down here.

There is no way I'll sign it.

Why are we putting out someone else's fire

when we have a fire of our own burning?
