N/A - Because I Got High

Previously on Rush Personalized medicine, working out of the back of your car? Where else am I supposed to treat them? I mean I was thrown out of the hospital.
I did what I had to do.
I was the best doctor on the floor that night, and you know it.
After six years, you still can't own up to your mistakes.
You two are taking a break.
What?! Not forever, just for a little while, until my husband gets his priorities straight.
Why do you think I'm with him and not with you? It's because he's someone that I can depend on.
If he makes you happy then, you know go for it.
Hey, someone's at the door.
Oh, yeah Arturo! What can I do for you? Another party, Dr.
Rush? No, no.
It's the same party.
Just, you know, sometimes an event takes a few nights just to really hit its stride.
You want to join us? I work three jobs, Dr.
I never get a day off.
Well, we should do something about that.
What's going on? Ah, the-the manager told me to get you.
Um, uh, there's a guest in 405-- he won't wake up.
Well, here's an idea: let him sleep.
But the ladies in the room with him said that his heart stopped.
So, he's dead.
'Cause if he's dead, you really don't need me.
No, no, no.
It stopped, then start again.
Stop! Start.
Stop! They said he's very famous.
Um, Tyler, uh, "Doo-gone"? Tyler Dougan, the singer? Si, Tyler "Doo-gone.
" I'll get my bag.
"How the Mighty Have Fallen.
" No.
I don't know any of these songs, Dr.
Summer of '94, I smoked my first joint to "Porcelain Gods.
" In Jonas Morris's brother's room, up above his parents' garage.
And I had my first threesome with Jenny Rubin and Kimby Carter, listening to "White Rabbit Radio.
" "No Looking Back"? No.
No? Wow.
Can't this thing go any faster? Oh, hey.
How you doing? Where is he? Oh, wow.
Tyler Dougan.
How the mighty have fallen.
What happened here? Nothing illegal.
He was telling us a story about partying in the rainforest, and he just passed out.
Weak pulse.
Pinpoint pupils.
Blue fingertips.
I'd say opiates.
A little Narcan should do it.
Can I have some room, please? Shit, what are you on, Big Dog? No tracking.
All right, let's take a look at this.
Oh, bingo! Fentanyl patches.
Well, Narcan is not gonna work if you got opiates in overdrive.
All right, let's give it another go.
Oh, come on Oh, there we go! Arturo, give me a hand, please.
Get him on the bed.
All right.
Up we get.
What happened? "Too Much of a Good Thing.
" I wrote that song.
Oh, I know.
Rock on.
Rock on.
Is he gonna be okay? Yeah, now that those patches are off him.
Just needs to sleep it off.
As for me, I think I'll take this for my troubles, get back to my party.
Can we come, too? That's possible.
Arturo! Care to join? Um I-I do have a 20-minute break.
Well, it's no day off, but it's something.
Rock on.
Shall we? Where are you, toner? I guess you'll have to do.
Now my jacket? Great.
Just got the estimate from the gutter guy.
Yeah? Take a guess.
Thirty-two Mm-hmm.
I could get a boob job for that.
On one side, anyway.
Not that you need one.
Well, I guess there goes our trip to Cabo.
Unless I get my dad to pitch in? No.
Don't even.
Laurel, please.
Alex, it's been six months.
Elliot needs to see his nana and papa.
Look, it's either gutters or margaritas.
Take a pick.
Can't you just fix the gutters? Me? Just make them last another year.
You know, do some of your Alex Burke magic.
Screw 'em in.
You you You're good.
That did it.
I already work might as well be a frickin' contractor, too.
What was that, baby? I said, I love you! I love you.
Going to Cabo.
What are you doing? The maid can clean that stuff up.
The maid complained.
And, frankly, I don't blame her.
Animal House 2 in here lately.
That sequel never happened.
It's happening right now.
Oh! God, what the hell's the matter with you? What is the matter with you? Ever since you came back from that ultrasound conference, you've been messy.
Oh, what? So you're punishing me with noise? No, I am rousing you, so the maid can come in here and do what she thinks is the full extent of her job.
I, on the other hand, am going downtown to have your medical license renewed.
So get up! No.
Just wake me up when you get back.
The maid can wait.
No, you have Molly Wilcox at noon.
What? Since when? You never told me about that.
Yes, I did.
I told you last week.
And I told you yesterday.
Well, reschedule her.
You know she can't reschedule.
What I know is: it would've been nice to have been told.
Rush, I told you.
No, you didn't.
Yes, I did.
No, you didn't! Rush, just once, admit you're wrong.
I will when it happens.
What? Nothing.
No, what'd you say? Nothing.
No, n-no! Come on, come on, come on! You got something to say, let's say it.
You know that expression "No man is an island"? Yeah.
You are that island.
And you always will be until you admit you're wrong.
Well, who doesn't like islands? Yes! Oh! Hi, sorry.
Uh, yeah.
Sure, that'd be I'll be right down.
Who's that? Oh, you know.
Just someone else I'm sure you'd have a lot of very helpful opinions about.
I just meant No, no, no, I know what you meant.
What are we gonna do about Molly Wilcox? Well, I'll figure it out.
Like always.
I'm coming, I'm coming.
Ah! Champagne! Whoa! Yeah, please! Tough morning doctoring? No.
Doctoring I can handle.
Armchair psychology? Not so much.
I hear you saved my life.
Well, uh, I could say the same, Big Dog.
Big Dog? You're a fan? Every track.
Even the last record? "White Rabbit Radio Redux"? Yeah, a lot of people thought that was a load of crap, right? Like the same record all over again.
No, no, no.
I loved it.
Rock on, man.
Sit down! You're making me nervous.
Sit down.
Yeah? Yeah, take a load off.
Yeah, I would take it easy, mixing the alcohol with patches and the you know.
Just take it from a guy who knows.
I take it you've, uh treated a lot of guys in that predicament.
Oh, no.
I have been the guy in your predicament.
A fellow sailor on the canal of controlled substances.
That's me.
What's your excuse? Demons.
Mine, too.
Look at us, huh? Two peas in a pod.
Listen, I-I got to ask you one question while I'm here.
Winona Ryder.
No, that's not my question.
That's everybody's question.
No, no, n-no.
God, no.
No, um On-on "No Looking Back," are you using lap steel picks? You got a good ear, son.
Yeah? You play? Oh You play.
Ah, well, not-not in a long while, but yeah.
I mean, when I was in high school, God, I used to spend hours just sitting in my room, playing along to your records.
You know, hours, man.
Dude, you were my hero.
I wanted to be just like you.
I-I wanted to be a rock star.
You want to write a song? D-Don't you have somewhere to be? Probably.
Go on Go on.
Really? Yeah.
Get a feel for that, huh? First thing we need is a title, right? Uh, something from the heart, you know? Wow, this is this is crazy.
"Never Been Wrong.
" You just make that up? Yeah.
That's fantastic! Really? Yeah! "Never Been Wrong.
" Let's do this, man! All right.
Start with a B.
Give me a B? Start with a B? Ready? Uh Nice, huh? That's good.
If you took it, just tell me.
Why would I take your toner? I'm also missing two tops, a jacket, my iPod and who knows what else.
It it feels like everything's been messed with.
How do you know exactly how many tops are missing? Because I have enough tops to wear a different one every day for a month.
They're on a rotation.
That's crazy.
I know.
So, where are they? No.
I mean having a rotation like that for tops is crazy.
It's not crazy.
It works.
Well, I was obviously just about to say it's also completely adorable.
Didn't say it fast enough.
Look, Eve, I'm sure it will all turn up right when you least expect it.
Want to bet? Sure.
If you find the stuff-- any of it-- I get a weekend in Palm Springs.
And what do you want? Two tops, a new iPod and my special Swedish toner? Bye.

Oh, brother, trust me, that is a life-changing experience that will open doors of perception.
I mean, really allow you to look within.
No, not interested.
Some doors are better left closed.

Alex Burke.
Sorry for the delay.
Got the wrong address.
Have a seat.
It's actually good you're running late.
Gave me a chance to go over these new script pages, which are terrible.
These writers have no idea about human motivation.
What do you do here? I'm a producer.
Always wondered what they did.
You sound like a writer.
The business is not a world I'm in much.
Honestly, I can't remember the last time I saw a movie that wasn't animated.
I'm envious.
Rush didn't tell me what we were doing today, so, uh I came prepared.
Sounds like Rush.
My husband and I are doing IVF, but I don't have time to drive to our doctor in Venice every week, and I don't care what he says.
I can't stand needles.
It's so lame, right? No.
We all have things that freak us out.
Mine is cereal milk.
Cereal milk? Yeah.
You know, the milk that's left behind in the bowl? Some people actually drink that stuff.
I can't.
It freaks me out, every time.
I no longer feel so stupid.
Good job! Thank you.
Your supplies? Oh.
Uh, in there.
You mind? Knock yourself out.
So how do you know Rush? Uh, Rush dated an actress that was in my last film.
Sounds about right.
Uh, I tried to put him in that movie, but he said it wasn't for him.
That's surprising.
All done.
Rush usually sings to me.
Sings? Yeah.
When he does it, he sings.
Sings what? I don't know, just sing the last thing that you heard or I'll faint.
The itsy-bitsy spider Went up the waterspout Down came the rain And washed the spider out Out came the sun And dried up all the rain And the itsy-bitsy spider Climbed up the spout again.
All done.
Rush usually goes with "This Is How We Do It.
" Oh, sorry about that.
Uh, it's the last thing I heard at home.
You know, my son loves that song.
It was nice.
Will! Help me! Help me! Help me! Thanks for coming in.

Yes, I did.
Why? You almost lost a patient.
I saved a patient.
A patient you almost killed.

I am gonna head downstairs, get myself some real breakfast.
Rush? Yeah? I'm sorry about yesterday.
What I said.
You don't have to apologize.
Yes I do.
I am not in any position to judge anyone else's life.
Certainly not when it comes to relationships.
I'm sorry.
No harm, no foul.
Uh, one more thing? Super hungry.
I may have been wrong about telling you about Molly Wilcox.
No, you were right.

Let me just I'll see if he's available.
This woman, um, wants you to come out to Bel-Air to remove a tick from her eight-year-old son.
Uh, can you tell her I'll be an hour or so? Give the little creature a chance to get his fix.
I feel his pain.
Rush can be there in an hour.
Just make sure this stuff gets there before I do.
We land at PDX at 2:00.
I know, just as long as it gets there before I do.
