Dear Nick, I wish I could see you in person, but that would be a mistake.
The truth is, there's no good way for me to let you know - our relationship can't go on.
- Mom? I'm going away for a while to clear my head.
- Mom?! - What?! What the hell is this? Camille, please don't yell like that.
You're making me think something is wrong.
Something is wrong.
Camille, give me that! Tell me it's not real.
Just give it to me! Tell me it's not loaded! Camille All right, at least, tell me that it's not yours.
It's Tom's, all right? Now, give it to me.
What are you doing in my closet? I was looking for your black sweater and I found your gun instead.
I asked you to go in your closet and look for my sweater, Camille.
Okay? Can you go find my sweater, please? Yeah.
Camille, any luck with that black sweater? No, not yet.
You know what? Just forget it because we're just gonna be late.
let's just get going.
Yeah.
I'll get your bag.
Cool, and you know what? We are gonna have to make a couple of stops, okay? - Yeah, that's cool.
- All right.
You ready? Did you check in on Mr.
Vohlers? First thing.
Why? Are you worried? No, it's just the guy won't stop talking about how expensive everything is.
I'm just not in the mood.
Look, Miles, I-- Tom, I know.
I just want to say I appreciated-- It was an honor working with you.
And I'm sorry.
Miles, you have nothing to apologize for.
You-- You came here in the middle of that crisis with Christina, and you stepped up, stood by my side.
And whatever happened between you and Camille-- I know you treated her with respect.
Everything else, that's That's your business.
Thank you.
I wish you the best with your family.
You okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
You sure? 'Cause, um You haven't really told me what's going on.
I know.
I will.
ButWe got one more stop to make.
And I don't want to be late for the flight, so Yeah.
Uh, sure.
So, where to? The hospital.
To see Tom? Yeah.
Okay.
Come in.
Hey.
Still here? Actually, just stopped by to give this to you.
And then I'm leaving.
Tom, I know I've said this before.
Um I'm sorry.
And I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me someday.
Okay.
Have a good one.
"Really? I have enough time for a planning committee.
" Yeah, that makes sense.
Busy? No.
Come on in.
Oh, don't let me, uh, interrupt.
I was having a conversation with Garlan Bryce in my head.
And next thing you know, I'm talking out loud.
He's finally driven you insane, has he? Well, make no mistake-- Garlan Bryce is a crazy maker.
Okay.
What's the latest? Well, I told you, he wants me to work strictly as chief nursing officer.
The next moment, he's asking me to sit in on his planning committee.
It's nothing personal.
It's just about power, that's all.
You're right.
But what's really "looney tunes" is that when he arrived, I hated him.
It was instant and mutual.
Now I might be liking him-- Might be.
What's wrong with that? Well, I was just getting used to hating him.
Anyway, enough about him.
Have you heard? We're getting married? Yeah.
Okay, just promise me this-- After we get married, there will only be a low level of insanity.
Oh, I promise-- Low-level insanity only.
I'm serious.
So am I.
What do you think? I can't be held responsible.
Oh, yeah, and you have just redecorated.
Well, then, we should.
Okay, good.
Okay.
Okay.
Get the door.
You ready? Go.
Yeah.
Oop.
All right.
Maybe I shouldn't go.
MomGo.
You need to clear your head.
You know I don't really know what's going on, but I can put it together for myself, I guess.
But, uh, the fact is, it's not my business.
I just want to be there for whatever you need.
You're right.
I probably just need to just go and catch my breath.
You do need to catch your breath.
And if you don't go now, you'll never go.
Right.
I'm not gonna feel guilty.
No, you won't.
When I get back, we're gonna talk about college.
Yeah.
Maybe.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Be safe, okay? Don't miss your flight.

Okay.
Excuse me.
Nick? I'm in here.

Are you in here by yourself? The boys went out.
I'm sorry.
When did she pass? During the night.
You checked on her about at 10 o'clock.
Blood pressure was fine.
Heart was fine.
And, uh, I walked in this morning And she was gone.
Tried to wake her, you know? I'm glad you came.
Thank you.
I'm here to help you with whatever you may need.
I know that.
I loved her.
She loved you.
I know.
What's the matter? You okay? It's not the time.
You're here for me.
And if we are friends, you got to let me be here for you.
I just-- I signed my divorce papers.
You okay? Well, let's just get through the day.
Okay.
Kelly.
Hey, listen.
It's Christina.
I need a favor.
Of course.
Look, I need you to go to the police station.
Did you get arrested? No, I didn't get arrested.
Oh, good.
Kelly, just listen to me.
I need you to go to the police station on Stuart and grove.
Oh, I know where that is.
Okay, good.
I need you to go there, and I need you to pick up a letter that I mistakenly left for detective Renata.
Detective Renata.
Oh, you mean Nick? Yes.
Can you do it? Um I'm supposed to teach this infant CPR class for Bobbie, but I'll do that first.
I mean after.
I'll do your thing first.
Good.
You're a lifesaver.
I really appreciate it, okay? But I need you to go now, okay? Go get it.
Okay.
Bye.
Oh, good.
I caught you.
I wanted to tell you in person.
Wait-- Just-- Just give me a second.
I have the most amazing news.
The FBI have arrested Eric Petrak.
That is good news.
Honey, they nailed the miserable bastard.
And, even better, it was his glorious, one-of-a-kind Aston Martin that led police to his whereabouts.
What? D-don't you want to know what's happened to your money? What is it? Your brother called.
Your father didn't want you knowing, but Your father's in respiratory failure.
His kidneys are giving out.
He's also on dialysis.
This is the name and number of the hospital he's at.
Quite a rat's nest he's landed in.
Anyway, um Agent, uh, Kruchmar w-w-wants you to call him.
Oh, sorry.
I have a number for you, too.
"Kruchmar.
" What kind of spelling is that? He-- He wants you to call him before revealing any details about money.
But it's great! Isn't it? I mean, uh, now-- Now you can, uh, press on without delay.
Now you can-- You can break ground as-- As soon as possible.
Hey, Steve.
Tom, thanks for coming.
Yeah, of course.
Look, uh, I want to apologize for the other day.
You were just helping a patient, and I was out of line.
No, actually, I think we both were.
Call it a draw? Excellent.
Pleural effusion, disseminated pulmonary metastasis, a bone metastasis-- Wow.
Have you talked to this patient? No.
Not yet.
Well, I'd recommend that you do it soon.
They don't have long.
They belong to my father.
I'm sorry.
You could put him on hemodialysis.
He already is.
Of course there's radiation or chemo.
Doubtful, right? Yeah.
You know, a lung and liver transplant are probably his best bet.
As you know, in england, you're a donor unless you refuse.
Part of me thinks any treatment now would just be heroic and wasteful.
Well, let his doctors think like doctors.
You're his son.
I don't feel much like his son.
Well, what better reason, then, than to go see him before he dies? I-I know you have a delicate relationship with your father.
So, I'm not gonna pretend I know what you're going through.
But if it were me, I'd hate to look back years from now and know that anger kept me from saying goodbye.
Thanks, mate.
Yeah.
Christina? Okay.
C-can you hear me? Christina? Hold on.
You're gonna have to speak up.
Okay.
Can you hear me now? Um, yeah.
Oh, no, I'm-- I'm fine.
I just was going a disaster training seminar.
What's up? Okay, what about the letter? Oh, um, well, a nice detective told me that he couldn't release it to me.
So you don't have it? No.
I'm sorry.
Kelly, listen to me.
It's so important you get that letter for me.
Is it a matter of life or death? In a manner of speaking, okay? I said something in the letter that I shouldn't have.
Oh.
Write it, regret it.
Say it, forget it.
Kelly, what I mean to say is that I need to tell him in person.
Yeah, t-that's what I said.
It means like when something's really important, it's better to say it in person.
Uh, y-- Kelly, just get the letter, okay? Please.
Yeah.
Okay.
I'll try.
He was a very sweet pastor, so Yeah.
Yeah.
Yeah, we did get a lot done.
So, I'll just, uh Hold on a second.
You stay right there.
Don't move.
I told you to stay outside, Christina.
How are you, doctor? Freeze! Yes! Hi, Dr.
Wakefield.
Kelly.
It's already pressed.
What? This isn't my floor.
Antoine.
You searched the whole house? Yeah.
Nothing.
All right, I got Branson Dusting for prints, couple uniforms canvassing the neighborhood.
Okay.
Got it.
Son of a bitch! Okay, what about flying him over, having him put directly into isolation after total irradiation? A bone-marrow transplant.
Exactly.
You know, I-I don't think the strain of that would-- Ah.
There you are.
Oh, thank you.
Listen, I'm, uh-- I'm sorry about last night.
I wouldn't shut up.
I just kept, uh, spouting off possible remedies for my dad, one after the other.
I'm so sorry I fell asleep.
No.
You were exhausted.
Anyway, I just came and woke Tom up.
You were up all night, too? Hmm.
Never left my bed.
Okay.
What about chemotherapy and radiation therapy? You know, there's a clinical trial at Cleburne-- Those are lousy odds.
Well, better than what he's got now.
Hello? When? Uh, I don't know when I'll be able to get over.
Let me call you.
Yeah.
Bye.
He, uh-- He coded twice this morning.
Good morning.
Mm.

You look like you're going to a funeral.
Yeah, Nick's mom died.
Um Wow.
I'm sorry.
Uh, was that Was that why you didn't leave? Yeah.
She meant a lot to me, you know? Was like a She was like the mother I wish I had had.
I want to tell you something, though.
I'm proud of you.
Going through life with so much strength and grace.
You're doing it a lot different than I did.
I'm grateful for that.
I really am.
What? Uh Well, maybe, uh Mom, what were you gonna say? Oh Maybe it's a good thing I didn't focus on you so much.
Didn't give me a chance to screw you up.
Mom Parenting is hard.
You know what the hardest thing is, though, is like Trying to figure out what your kids need and not to give Too much or too little, you know? But you, um You make it sound like you abandoned me or something.
I never felt like you neglected me.
I'm just glad you have a chance to work on you, instead of everybody else, like you always do.
We all make mistakes.
And we all have a chance to make them right.
Why do I think we just did a little switcheroo here? What is up with that? I don't know.
I think maybe we're just becoming friends.
There's some things I need to share with you before that's official.
- The whole thing is unfair.
- What do you it's completely unfair.
Do, man? You're making the decision for everybody.
What? Are you kidding me? Why would you bury mom in Virginia? We're from New York.
She should be with us.
I took care of mom for the past three years.
And all of a sudden, you want to be close to her in New York? Now?! But you didn't even talk to us about it! You can't just decide these things on your own.
Is that right? Why don't you strap her to your ass and start walking? Huh? Huh? Yeah, we will.
Okay, okay.
Why you always got to be the tough guy? You're always the boss, huh? You're always the tough guy.

You're all I got, Christina.
You know that.
Nick, they're your brothers.
Just make it right.
Just make it right.
I really need you to keep me together.
Hear me? Okay.
We've hardly spoken since we made love.
Look, it's just been-- It's been a-- It's been a confusing time, okay? It's been Yeah, but we can't act like it didn't happen.

First time in my life I knew what it felt like to be loved like a daughter.
For that, I thank you.
I have a confession.
You were right.
You know, about Nick loving me and me loving Nick.
I crossed a line.
But I'm gonna make it right, by them both, mom.
All I know, I first got to Learn to love myself and know that I'm enough so I don't hurt the people that I love anymore.
I, uh Nick said that you He said that you went in your sleep.
And if I know you, if you have anything Any say in this, you're somewhere that's Full of joy and laughter, salsa music.
I don't know.
Mama I don't know if there's any such thing, but, uh If there is If you want to come see me, I won't be afraid.

I'd like that.
There will be a few more family but I think we can start in probably 10 minutes.
She will be greatly missed.
Thank you.
Well, it looks like everybody's here.
I'm just waiting for Tammy.
I didn't see your cousin, so Um, just so you know-- Front row, your brothers, immediate family, everybody else will stand and sit-- Where are you sitting? I'm gonna stand back here.
Christina I want you to sit with me.
Nick, the front row is for family.
Christina, you're more family to me than anybody here.
Please.
Okay.
Let me just take this real quick.
Hello? Christina? There you are.
I got your message.
Kelly? Hello? Kelly, can you hear me? Um, I'm sorry.
Ohh.
I-I-I don't think I can hear you.
Hello? Christina? Kelly.
Oh, okay.
Hi.
The letter, Kelly.
Oh.
I'm sorry.
I thought I lost you.
Yes, I finally got the letter.
Great, Kelly.
You're a lifesaver.
Thank you.
Okay? No problem, Christina.
Yep? Now, this may seem an odd day for this, but I think it's time I delivered my wedding toast.
Uh, the psych ward's on the first floor, pal.
Well, Camille assured me you're done for the day.
Now, if memory serves, I was best man at your wedding, but I never had a chance.
Behold the surgeon A masked man who believes to cut is to cure, a man who considers himself untouchable, enlightened healer aloft the summit of his profession.
If he isn't actually a God, by George, he feels like one.
Arrogant, inflexible, utterly lacking in bedside manner-- These are supposedly his finest qualities, all of which lead me to believe that you, my friend, are either no surgeon at all or else you are unlike any man I know.
A little precious.
Thank you.
Mm.
Definitely points for brevity, though.
Hear, hear.
Anything to bring a little cheer, eh? Amen.
"Oh, dios, de quién único hijo nos ha "otorgado Los beneficios de la vida eterna, "concédenos la gracia que te pedimos "mientras meditamos Los misterios "del mas santo rosario de la bienaventurada virgen María, "debemos imitar lo que contienen "Cristo nuestro señor.
Amen.
" What the hell am I gonna do? This is gonna be the second time I'm divorced.
I wish I could be more help, but, uh I only just got engaged.
I won't pretend to you that I know how you're feeling.
You know, my ex-wife-- Not to be confused with my soon-to-be ex-wife-- Used to say that I'd never have a family because I put my career first.
Is that what you think happened here? I have no idea what happened here.
I mean, I do know that if I hadn't taken that meeting with Morrissey, Christina and I would have left together and she wouldn't have been attacked.
Perhaps.
But then maybe it would have happened another night, given the man had a personal vendetta.
Well, now I really am putting my career first by making promises to head the surgical department.
Well, what's wrong with losing yourself in your work At least for the time being? You know, I'm not paying for this shrink session.
Let's call it even.
And I'll need another beer.
Thank you so much.
Appreciate it.
Oh.
It's okay.
Hi.
Thank you so much.
I appreciate it.
I'm very sorry.
Thank you.
Sorry about your loss.
Thank you.
You-- Hey, hey! Whoa! Hey, hey, hey, hey! Let me see your hands! Put 'em up! Let me see your hands! What? What? I haven't broken any laws.
I came to offer my condolences.
That's all.
Of course, nobody said they were sorry when my friend died.
Hey-- Get out of here! Get the hell out of here! Get back! Get him back! Get the hell out of here! Get him out of here! Get him out of here now! Let's go.
Hey.
You okay? What's that? My mother wanted you to have it.
Wow.
It's beautiful.
Yeah.
You sure? She made me promise.
Okay.
She really loved you.
Okay.
Nick There's a letter on the table, okay? It's gonna explain everything.
Okay.
Why don't we try Millie's? We can get booth and start with a gallon of vodka.
Mm.
Hey, fellas.
Tom's gonna join us for dinner.
Oh.
How about Cuban? Uh, no.
Okay.
How about the water grill? Ooh, what about it? Uh, blue points and calamari.
That's all you need to know.
Care to join us? Yeah! Hey, where are you guys headed? To dinner.
Come with us.
Really? Where should we go? Millie's.
It's my favorite.
Maybe we can even invite Christina.
I'm sorry.
I just saw her in Mr.
Bryce's office.
Any idea what she was doing there? Um, I don't know.
Probably asking for her old job back.
But Um, uh Maybe another night, mate.
Yeah, sure.
A-actually, I have some paperwork I need to catch up on.
Okay.
Wow.
You made swift work of that.
So we're not going to dinner? No, Kelly, we're not, because, you see, everyone has left and you are the plague.
Do you have a minute? Of course.
Please.
Mr.
Bryce, you're the interim COO.
I was just looking for some clarification.
When you first got here, it seemed like you intended to replace me.
And yet a few weeks later, you asked me join the planning committee, despite the fact that I've made some really, really big mistakes.
So I'm totally confused.
I feel like I'm in a big shell game where there's a ball, those three little cups, you move it around, and the next thing you know, you've lost it all.
So, I'm kind of at sixes and sevens here.
Anyway, my point is-- I think you're still looking to replace me, and I just want you to know that I don't want that to happen.
I really love my job.
I want to be good at it.
In fact, I want to be great at it.
So I intend to keep it.
Well, that's good Because I have no intention of replacing you.
I think you're a damn fine CNO.
And you have a lot of untapped potential.
I agree.
SoWe don't have a problem, then.
No.
I see what you're doing.
First to wake and last to fall angry all the time are you hurt? the pain will go leaving less to hide anyone else I know they would believe me anyone else would beg me to decide can't tell you what I've done what I've done can't take this on my own own can't save it what have I done again? broken down help us out now I feel what you wanted always are down save yourself I don't want it broken down help us out now I feel what you wanted always are down save yourself I don't want it
