Nightmares and Dreamscapes

1 [baby crying] Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
- Charlie said I could have her.
- No! No.
No.
[baby continues crying] Charlie? - Charlie.
- Yeah.
Yeah, what? Wake up, wake up.
We got to get up.
Yeah, I'm I'm still here.
Um [sighs] Everything okay? Yeah, I just, uh, had a nightmare.
Um anything to do with what we were talking about? Where'd that land, anyway? Oh, well, we're two people who have a kid, broke up, got pregnant with another kid - pretty straightforward.
- Ah.
Clear as mud.
The thing is, is I just feel like every time I turn around, I'm pushed in a different direction.
Okay, well, let's just take things slow then.
You focus on the baby, and we'll keep things stable for you and Luke.
[inhales sharply] Um, I'm gonna take off and see if I can grab another couple hours sleep before shift starts.
You sure you're okay? Yeah, Charlie, I'm fine.
Okay.
Alex, and one more thing.
Mm-hmm.
Thank you for the, uh talk.
No problem.
Stability, right? Stability.
I didn't think this would be so difficult.
Jonathan, do you have Form A15? Babe, you made it through med school.
I'm pretty sure this is gonna be a piece of cake.
Thank you.
Yes, but intake meetings, references, police check, home study.
What did you think? We're adopting a child, not leasing a car.
But there are so many questions.
Listen.
"What age range would you consider?" "What gender would you like?" "Would you consider a child with disabilities?" - Would you - You heard the rep.
These are just sample questions to figure out our motivations for becoming parents.
Jonathan, you were arrested? - Jonathan! - Relax.
It was in high school.
I stole mascara from my girlfriend.
- Girlfriend? - All right.
You know what? I-I can't do this with you right now.
All they want is for us to answer some simple questions.
I don't know why you have to keep acting so "So" what? How How am I acting? Weird.
I'm s [sighs] I didn't mean that.
I Just Just shut the door on your way out.
[door shuts] I'm very flattered.
I'm a great fan of the work Torbin General does.
And we're excited at the possibility of having you.
We were thrilled you applied after your three months with us.
Yes, so was I a year ago, when I did that.
I know.
I apologize for things moving so slowly, but you have to understand it's a popular position, one that's still yours if you want it.
Of course I want it.
So, shall I take that as a yes? Can I have the day to think about it and figure out my finances? I'll let you know tomorrow? Good enough.
Talk soon, Dr.
Katz.
- Okay.
- Cheerio.
Thanks.
Covert FaceTime session.
Try and tamp down my paranoia.
It's just my sister, no big deal.
What are you talking about? Finally patched things up with your family.
You're back for good.
It's a very big deal, es-especially to me.
Are you okay? We need to talk.
[cellphone vibrates] E.
R.
Can you save it for later? And I can tell you again how happy I am - to have you back in my life? - [chuckles] [beep] [woman speaking indistinctly over P.
A.
] Katrina.
Didn't recognize you without your makeup on.
Funny.
I'm heading to the Zombiewalk.
- You done for the day? - Just finishing the night shift, which I rocked, by the way.
Ah, karaoke with the geriatric ward again, huh? Got to give the people what they want.
Well, have fun.
Just remember the only way to kill the undead is to cancel their TV show.
Or a silver bullet, stake through the heart.
Or you can cut off their head with an ax.
Um, hello, Blake.
Black, please.
What, uh Whatcha doing? Thought you hit the road.
That's the thanks I get for giving you your space? You did what again? You've been avoiding me, Charlie.
I assumed it was 'cause you and the baby mama needed some time to grieve.
Oh, Martha's funeral.
Well, then, thank you, I guess.
Thank you for your tact.
You're, uh You're one hell of a stand-up spirit.
Yes, I seem to recall you mentioning something about helping me with that.
Uh, yeah.
Yeah.
Thought you, uh, liked the liminal state, though.
You were, uh, worried about where you might end up.
Can't be any worse than this place Screaming kids, old people.
[cellphone vibrates] That.
Uh, I got to go.
Come on, man.
I really need your undivided here, okay? I'm a surgeon, Blake.
The only dividing I do is with a scalpel.
But I'll help you, I promise.
I just duty calls.
Got to run.
Right, copy that.
Okay, we got three patients just arrived, all acute trauma.
Car hit a guardrail.
Let's look alive.
[radio chatter] Here we go.
Maggie, Dev, take stretcher 1.
- Yeah.
- All right.
Let's get the second stretcher into the trauma bay.
- Check his vitals, Sekara.
- Yeah.
We need O-neg with plenty of ringers.
- Jackson, take the bag.
- Yeah.
Okay, gonna need a FAST over here.
[radio chatter] I'm not getting anything.
Pupils are fixed and dilated.
- [sighs] - He's gone.
I've got massive internal hemorrhaging.
[monitor beeping] We're losing him.
All right, talk to me.
What have we got? - Airbag deployed.
- Must've had his feet on the dash at the point of impact.
Get ready to transfer.
One, two, three.
Wait, wait.
That's me.
I'm not Let's get pressure on those wounds.
He's bleeding out.
I'm dead? [woman speaking indistinctly] He's in hemorrhagic shock.
I need O-neg now.
Man: Got it.
[monitor beeping] Hey, hey.
You can hear us, right? You can, can't you? [alarm beeping] Alex: We're losing him.
You can't let our little brother die.
He's the whole reason we were in that car in the first place.
If you don't save him, our dad is never gonna forgive himself.
You brothers? They're brothers? Oh, my God.
Hell of a force.
Look at that seatbelt mark.
He's-He's got to have internal damage.
Compound complex fracture to the tib, fib.
I want to see if I can get that shoulder back in.
- Alex, can I use you for counter traction? - Yep.
We need to get him up to imaging ASAP.
[joint pops] Okay, he's good to go.
Dr.
Williams, can you prep the O.
R.
? We need him there immediately following the C.
T.
scan.
Got it.
Get Jackson to notify the family.
We've already lost two of them.
[monitor beeps] Your blood pressure's low, but that can happen with pregnancy.
Other than that, everything looks good.
I don't think your fall on the sidewalk affected anything.
Two left feet.
I don't even know why I'm still dressing up for this.
Even I'm starting to think I'm a little old for it.
It says here you had some trouble conceiving? That's putting it mildly.
Five rounds of IVF before I finally got pregnant.
Cost me everything I had.
Well, congratulations.
You and your partner must be thrilled.
He is, as is his new modern dancer girlfriend.
Ah.
[chuckles] We split after 13 years when it finally clicked we didn't want the same things.
Kids.
13 years, and you started over just like that? Oh, starting over's the easy part.
Hard part's leaving.
But you got to decide what you want most.
I just need you to sign your release form, and then you can go.
Okay.
Right there.
Something wrong? Yeah.
Uh I-I don't remember how to sign my name.
Dr.
Lin, the nosebleed in cubicle 3, - he's starting to get restless.
- I'm on it.
Yeah.
I know you have a hell of a busy nightlife, but in case you forgot, people enter here in dire situations, and we kind of need you to be I don't know awake.
[groans] I'm sorry.
I'm exhausted.
I've been spending every night at Sydney's, and her tiny, little hobbit bed is just so hobbity.
So why don't you and Sydney buy a bigger bed, something more orc-sized.
We're not buying a bed.
Why not? You and Sydney basically live together.
Oh, I get it.
It's because you guys aren't really that serious, right? Exactly.
We're just We're just keeping it loose.
- Wrong.
You want to know why? - Mm-hmm.
Because sleeping over every night means that you are serious, very serious.
Seriously.
I'm serious.
Cereal.
You weren't expecting that last one, were you? You're a child.
Can't hide from the truth, Lin.
You guys are in a serious relationship.
Sekara, Scott.
Deal with that mustache.
Go.
[monitor beeping] Alex: Dr.
Williams? Just tying off the abdominal bleed now.
I thought Dr.
Harris was going to be joining us.
He is.
All right, let me get in there, have a look.
That is not good.
Bowel must have perforated on impact.
Needle driver.
Charlie, we gonna do this or what? I'm kind of in the middle of something important, in case you hadn't noticed.
How come when I was in a coma, you never came in to look in on me before I croaked? I don't know, Blake.
Maybe that's because you weren't my patient.
We'll talk when I get back.
How'd you do that? You okay? Uh, yeah.
Just got held up.
How's our patient doing? He's hemodynamically stable.
Blood gases are okay.
And we seem to be controlling the bleeding.
Branch of the superior mesenteric vein.
We've already tied it off.
Working on the tear in the bowel.
How's the leg? Uh, tibia's broken in two places.
I'm gonna need plates and screw Oh.
[Blake laughs] Oh, you're right, Charlie.
I think I will stick around for a while.
You sure you're okay? Never better.
You have a rapidly expanding acute subdural hematoma.
The right side of your brain is swelling.
Swelling how? Like it's gonna bust through my skull? No, I wouldn't use those words.
The skull is hard.
Therefore, the hematoma can push the brain down into the spinal column, and we don't want that.
When you fell, you must have hit your head.
- Do you remember that? - Uh, I don't know.
I-I stepped off the curb and went down.
I was so focused on the ba by.
Okay, okay.
Okay, we need to get you into an operating room right away.
I need to open the skull, remove the hematoma, and then release some of the pressure.
- Okay? - Okay, Dr.
Hamza, I just need a moment with you.
And, Trudy, lay back.
One second.
Okay.
- Hmm? - She's 23 weeks pregnant.
Anesthetic alone increases the risk of spontaneous miscarriages, not to mention the risks of infection, seizure, blood clots.
Yes, I know this, but if we don't get her into surgery right away, we won't have the privilege of worrying about the baby.
So, you really don't remember anything.
All I know is that I woke up in a heap on the sidewalk surrounded by monsters.
- I'm sorry.
Monsters? - He's talking about Zombiewalk.
Must have been a primo buzz kill, huh, waking up in the middle of that gore-fest? Buzz kill? Are you implying that I'm a drug user? Is he implying that I'm a drug user? It's just something we need to ask.
Doesn't have to be illegal drugs.
Sometimes, medication can act against each other.
Okay, I don't take anything, okay? I just I-I can't even have a cup of coffee without feeling sick.
Yeah, okay, can you raise your arms for me? Thank you.
Sekara, we got a problem.
I can't find the source of the bleed.
So, is that fake blood from the Zombiewalk? No, no, no.
It's definitely real.
The question is, if it's not his, whose is it? [tool grinding] - Dr.
Hamza? - Go.
We have an issue with the bone bank.
Apparently, we're still waiting for it to be up and running.
The skull flap could be unusable if we can't freeze it.
Where's the closest alternative? Victoria Mercy.
It's too far away.
The bone flap won't make it.
Are you familiar with the work of Dr.
Hillinger? He believed storing bone flaps in the subcutaneous fat of the abdomen is an effective way to keep them nourished.
You're proposing we put Trudy's skull into her abdomen? - It's actually quite common.
- Have you ever seen it done on a patient who was 23 weeks pregnant? We have a small window to save this patient's life.
If you have a time-efficient alternative to store this bone flap and preserve it, then I'm all ears.
Okay, Mr.
Dolson, I have veal sandwich from Papa Alfredo's I've been wanting to eat all morning.
So let's make this quick, shall we? [sighs] I told you I don't remember.
That might work with Cagney and Lacey here, but I've been around the block a few times, and I'm not buying it.
Neither are the cops when I call them.
- Whoa, okay.
- Which I'm gonna do now.
Okay, w wait.
- I'm dialing.
- Give me a second to get my bearings, okay? Don't you think I want to know what happened - just as much as you do? - I don't know.
Do you? Zach, may I speak with you for a second? Kind of in the middle of losing game of Clue here, Lin.
I think I might be able to help with that.
Look what you did to me, freak.
Whoa, wait.
You two know each other? Apparently, they're roommates.
Yeah, he's the one that did this.
- What?! - Get ready to die, bro.
- Whoa.
- Okay, calm down, Niles.
- No, no, no, no.
- Niles, is that your name? Niles? Niles, listen, I'm just gonna give you a little - Boop.
- Ohh! Aah! Ohh! - Boop? - Just a little [pops lips].
[chuckling] Oh.
Cassie, can you retract the spleen, please? No problem.
I've got it.
Roxy: Looks like we have a ghost.
Can we get more sterilized tools now? You know what? I'm-I'm sorry.
Dr.
Harris, I w I wasn't gonna say anything, - but I have to speak up.
- Go ahead, Cassie.
We've got to get the HVAC fixed in here.
It's wreaking havoc.
And I know that you're Chief of Surgery, and I don't mean to be bossy, but No, it's that's a good idea.
Hmm.
HVAC aside, is there anything that I we need to be concerned about, as pertains to the patient? Um can't be 100% sure.
Uh, can't exactly talk to the patient.
Right.
How's the patient now, Roxy? Roxy: Looks good from where I sit.
Looks good from where I sit, too, Doc.
- Spoke too soon.
- Damn it.
The diaphragm has ruptured.
I can't ventilate him.
- He's suffocating.
- We've got to fix this tear.
I need sutures, and we're gonna need a chest tube.
How's that leg going, Charlie? Uh I'm done.
Somebody close for me.
Stepping out.
[sighs] Sorry, I don't know how I missed the diaphragm tear on the C.
T.
He had massive injuries in his belly.
It happens.
It's no excuse.
He's coming back up.
Right.
Cassie, shake it off.
We got the stomach down.
Let's anchor it.
2-0 silk, suture.
Ugh, this guy had a full lunch.
Someone get Dr.
Williams a gastro tube.
Knife.
There you have it.
Okay, securing gastrostomy tube.
Almost done.
That's it.
Looks like we're out of the woods.
Good job, Cassie.
Thanks for not reaming me out.
Hey, we get to tell a father that his one remaining son is still alive.
That is all that matters to me right now.
Is he in there, my boy, Ezra? You must be Mr.
Town.
I am Dr.
Reid.
Let's Let's find you somewhere private that we can talk, okay? Just answer the damn question.
Is he in there? Yes.
Yes, he is, okay? Now, your son was pretty banged up from the accident, but the surgery's gone well, and we are expecting a full recovery.
And what about, uh, Kieran and-and, uh and Isaac? I am so sorry.
Sir, somebody was supposed to have-have told you.
What? That they're dead? Yes, they told me.
But that-that that doesn't matter.
I-I need to see them.
I need to s-see them now.
Have you been drinking? What-What does that got to do with anything? Okay.
Let's-Let's just get you a cup of coffee, okay? Let's just start there.
Come on.
Let's go.
This doesn't make any sense.
I wouldn't just attack you for no reason.
Oh, yeah, unless you were pissed about how I left the kitchen.
- I leave crumbs, right, bro? - Yeah.
He works nights, I work days.
I come home for lunch every day for a protein shake.
50% whey, little bit of soy milk, glutamine for the boys.
I'm starting to get why you punched him.
But this morning, I come home, Bart's sleeping on the couch.
He gets up, freaks out, and punches me in the face.
Completely unprovoked.
- Bart, how much do you weigh? - 130 pounds.
- [scoffs] - And, Niles? 260.
But that's lean muscle.
I'm like 10% body fat.
[sighs] I know, I know, I could be better, but, uh, I got a sweet tooth.
Excuse us.
[clears throat] What do you think? He's lying.
Nobody's 10% body fat.
Maggie, it doesn't matter what I think, because no matter how you cut it, it's a domestic dispute.
But why would tiny Bart attack giant Niles? It makes no sense.
Maybe Bart doesn't like Niles' tiny hobbit bed.
I don't care.
It's not my problem to figure out.
- I'm calling.
- Okay.
Lin, I'm sorry about what I said about the hobbit bed.
I didn't mean that you and Katz are like those two goons.
No, we're not.
And we won't be, - 'cause we don't live together.
- Yes, you do.
- No, we don't.
- Yes Hi.
I would like to report an incident.
Hope Zion.
Mr.
Town? Can't Irish this up, huh? No.
And even if I could Listen, there's a chapel.
There's somebody you could talk to.
I could arrange it if you'd like.
Done enough talking in church basements about problems.
Listen, why don't we have a seat, and you can have a drink of that? Bet now you know why they were driving so fast, huh? Get away from me.
I'm sorry.
We don't have to talk about this right now if you don't want to.
You know, Ezra was, uh the only one left, after the other two, uh, flew the coop.
And then they just they just had to stick their noses in, try to take him from me.
And so you fought, and they left.
Mm-hmm.
- Need to see my boys.
- Um, okay.
Uh, you know what? I know that you do, but you need to calm down right now.
You're too upset.
You don't know a damn thing about me.
Okay, I'm sorry.
You're right, I don't.
But I-I do know something about drinking.
I have been around it my whole life.
And whatever you're feeling right now, if you don't deal with this, it's gonna be nothing compared to how awful you feel when you sober up tomorrow and realize that they're gone.
Mr.
Town, this is one of the last times that you get to see the boys.
Don't you want to remember it? [laughs] That kid could've died back there.
You get that? [laughing] Oh.
It was a joke.
How was I supposed to know he was going to fish out like that? You sat on his chest.
Hey, news flash, old man.
- I'm a ghost.
- No.
See, right before I walked in that O.
R.
, you grabbed my arm.
- How'd you do that? - Well, guess it looks like you don't know as much as you think you do.
Well, you seem to be the expert, so why don't you tell me? [exhaling sharply] Blake! - Pshew.
- Okay, okay.
Enough, okay? You want to leave, all right? - Let's do that.
- Let's, uh Let's get you gone.
What, now? No way.
I'm just starting to figure out how to have fun here.
Wow.
Kind of makes you think, doesn't it? One day, we just run out of ink, and someone throws us in a drawer.
You are not staying here.
I won't let you.
Maybe I'm supposed to stay here.
Yeah, and do what, huh? Move stuff around? You gonna scare people? - You're scared? - Oh, no.
I'm not scared.
Bye, Charlie.
Blake.
Blake? Who's Blake? Hey, sorry.
I just got your text.
I was in surgery.
I'm happy to help wherever I can.
Great.
Can you grab, uh, sutures and gauze, and we'll, um, finish this? Yeah.
Charlie, who's Blake? What does he want? I don't know.
I don't know.
All right.
Um Well, Ezra's father would like to look at his other sons, so I have to make them as presentable as possible.
Do you need my help? No.
Hey, where's security? I thought you called them.
I did, but, you know, who falls asleep while waiting for the cops to arrest them? We need to rule out concussion.
Duh.
I was just about to do that before you so rudely interrupted me.
Uh, maybe wait for the cops.
You do remember he came in here covered in someone else's blood.
[chuckles] Yo.
Bartholomew.
Wakey-wakey, friend.
- [gasps] - Whoa.
Everybody down! This place is gonna blow! - Somebody quick.
- Call security.
- I thought you called security.
- Call them again! I need somebody to knock this guy out.
I don't think we need to do that, Billy.
- He's already asleep.
- [groans] Dev! How we doing on the help? - RBD - R.
E.
M.
sleep behavior disorder.
Which means Bart may not have been lying about not remembering anything.
- Right.
- [grunting] Scott, we're gonna be there.
Just give us a second.
Yeah, no problem.
Jackson's still looking for security.
And you still haven't woken him up? No, it could spook him and make him more violent.
We're gonna tranq him first.
Clonazepam, 44 megs right in the butt.
Be strong.
- Wait, what? Me? - I found him! - Somebody call the police! - Wait, why am I doing it? - Good luck.
- Listen, Sekara, I didn't want to have to tell you this, but evaluations are upcoming, and your paperwork is iffy at best.
Or at least it will be when I'm done with it.
Bart: He's got the whole place rigged! Just give me the syringe.
[both grunting] Stay back! Ohh! [crowd gasps] Bad news is I couldn't find security.
Good news found this in their locker.
[groaning] - Yeah, or we could just do that.
- Yeah.
Jackson! There you are.
Here's that file on Blake Mitchell you asked for.
You know he's deceased, right? Yeah, I know that, but, um, some patients are harder to shake than others.
Mm.
[electricity crackles] Is that a stun gun? Yeah, today's weird.
You okay? [sniffles] Huh? Oh, yeah.
Just a little tired.
Maybe we should take a break.
I'm fine.
[exhales shakily] Can I have, uh Can I have some gauze, please? I can finish them on my own.
Can we just get through this, please? You're crying.
[sniffles] No, Dr.
Williams, I am not crying.
I'm not.
[sniffles] Okay, so what if I am? Aren't I allowed to? They're dead.
She's dead.
Everybody's dead.
You know what? Don't bother.
I know I know how ridiculous I sound right now.
Why don't we sit? - [scoffs] - Let's sit.
Why? So you can give me some kind of pep talk, some long-winded advice about how I'm not processing my mother's death? That's what everybody thinks, right? No.
We're just sitting.
Okay, yeah, let's-let's let's do that.
We're doing it.
[both chuckle] [monitor beeping] I'm getting ready to place the calvarial bone flap inside the abdominal pocket.
[monitor beeping rapidly] Uh, just give me a second to find out what the hell is going on.
Get me 75 mics of ritodrine.
It's the baby.
Trudy's having contractions.
- She's in labor? - I'm trying to stop it.
I don't know about you, but I'm not really in the mood to do an emergency C-section here.
- Talk to me, Dr.
Katz.
- Give me another 50 mics.
We've only cut into the subcutaneous fat, and her levels have been fine.
Like I said, nothing about babies is easy.
No.
Are we hitting her again, or Yes, hit her again, another 25 mics.
Come on, Trudy.
You fought so hard.
Don't give up now.
- Okay, it's not working.
- Just give it a second.
She can't handle more.
Wait.
Oh, come on.
Come on, Trudy.
[monitor beeps] Okay, hold up.
She's coming down.
The contractions are spacing out.
[sighs] The only other thing I know about babies They are always miracles.
What do I do? Tell them how you feel.
You boys look like crap, you know that? But you got nothing on the old man.
I am the king of the crap house.
I messed up.
I didn't mean to, but I did.
Ezzie was right to call you.
It should be me lying here, not you.
You're my good boys.
[sniffles] I should have been better for you.
I-I should have been.
And-And I'm sorry.
[sobbing] I'm-I'm sorry.
Blake: Still stalking me, Charlie? Well, to be honest, you're not a difficult spirit to track down.
Just need to follow the path of chaos and confusion.
Oh, I'm having fun.
Yeah? - What's that? - That's a hospital file.
Yours.
Do you want to, uh, have a little read? No, just give me the CliffNotes.
Mm.
Well, let's see.
The, uh, first entry is from when you were 5.
Little boy who fell down a lot Least that's what your folks said.
Yeah, I was a I was a stinker.
Mm-hmm.
Hairline fracture from falling out of a tree.
Broken arm from basketball.
Broken nose from chasing a Cat down the stairs.
I tripped.
Cat had a mean left hook.
Don't Don't sweat it.
I'm in a good place now.
[clears throat] Yeah, what about the little kid who went through all that? How does he feel? That's kid's dead, Charlie.
Yeah? Then how come I can still see him? What are you gonna do, Blake? Are you gonna torment the living till they feel as bad as you do? I don't know.
Worth a try.
I know what your parents did to you.
Stop it.
- Why are you protecting them? - Just stop it.
Charlie Because I was bad.
They tried to fix me, but they couldn't.
You're not bad, buddy.
There's no such thing.
Then why did they do it? Because they were hurting, and they were in pain, and no one helped them.
And I'm not gonna let the same thing happen to you.
It's time you stopped paying for their mistakes, okay? I just don't want to hurt anymore.
I know.
You won't.
Uh But I need you to do something for me.
Can you be brave? Am I dying? No.
You're free.
[man speaking indistinctly over P.
A.
] Bart: Somebody said I roughed up a Dr.
Scott? How is he? He's still a pain in the ass, but that's not your fault.
Bart, we figured out what's wrong with you.
You have R.
E.
M.
sleep behavior disorder.
Do you know what that is? Is it like sleep terrors? My mom said I had that when I was a kid.
Sometimes it's confused with sleep terrors, but the disorder means that the paralysis that normally occurs during R.
E.
M.
sleep is absent.
So the sufferer "acts out" their dreams.
It can be triggered by stress or sleep deprivation.
You been burning the candle at both ends? I started picking up some extra shifts after my last roommate bailed.
I guess I haven't got caught up on sleep.
Well, good news is you can relax now.
We're gonna keep you overnight, run a couple tests, just make sure this isn't related to something bigger.
Oh.
Great.
So the weird sleepwalking disease might be the least of my problems.
That's perfect.
Is there anyone we can call for you? Actually, I was thinking I'd stay, you know, see how he makes out.
- Really? - [chuckles] Yeah.
Uh, you obviously haven't looked for an apartment in this city.
Well, the dueling roomies have made up, and all is right with the world.
Maggs, I'm an idiot.
I agree, but go on.
Look.
You shouldn't move in with Sydney if you're not ready.
It's just that I was happy to finally see you happy, and I didn't want to see you screw that up.
Can we just go back to the part where we agree you're an idiot? You like this girl.
I see it in your face every time you're with her.
So what gives? Every time that Syd and I get close, something goes down, and she leaves.
I just don't want that to happen again.
So, you think that keeping her at arm's length is the surefire way to stay together.
You think I'm being ridiculous.
No.
No, no, not at all.
I think you're in love.
How are you feeling, Trudy? Oh, you know, totally freaked out.
How long is it gonna be like this? Just a few more weeks.
And what about the baby? How is this gonna affect my pregnancy? It won't.
You and the baby will be very closely monitored, I promise.
Oh, the cards were stacked against us, and yet here we are.
Quod intelligitur esse.
That's Latin for, "It is meant to be.
" Hmm.
Bashert.
Yiddish.
Means the same thing.
Latin, Yiddish We'll take all the help we can get.
[both chuckle] It's been a long day.
- You just rest, okay? - Okay.
But first, thought you might want to hear something.
[heartbeat] [both chuckle] [monitor beeping] Dad? I'll give you a moment.
Thank you.
[groans] What happened? What are all these things? Where's Kieran and Isaac, Dad? They're with your mother, Ezzie.
They're gone? N No.
I promise I will do better.
No.
No, Dad.
I'm s I'm sorry.
Hey.
No, I haven't been, uh, lurking here all day like a creep.
I-I just got here.
I, uh, thought maybe you'd want to look over my answers before I send it in.
And you're still angry.
Okay, I get that.
Um Strange tendencies, learning disability, special needs, social anxiety.
And finally one day, it was Asperger's.
That was my list.
Uh, Shahir, this, um This isn't about that.
When I look at this piece of paper and a list like that, you know, if my parents were given a choice, I wonder if they would've chosen me.
I wouldn't have made anyone's list, Jonathan.
[sighs] Well, then how come you're on mine? Hmm? - You don't have a list.
- I do, and you're on it.
[both chuckle] But you're right, you know? We start making labels and lists and, uh, must-haves, and we'll miss out on someone truly special.
Then why are we doing it, hmm? Because if we don't, then we're gonna miss out altogether.
You do want a child, right? A baby? And nothing with babies comes easy.
That's right.
- Okay.
- Let's do this, then.
What do you say to dual pillow-top comfort with memory foam, complete with box frame and under-bed storage? And here I was expecting some weird medical scan.
Au contraire.
Though, I did do a scan of your apartment, and my professional opinion is you need a bigger bed.
- Hmm.
- We need one.
- I need one.
- You trying to move in with me? I'm serious about us.
Sue me.
Wait till you see the, uh, goose-down pillows I found.
We put a skull in a pregnant woman's abdominal wall today.
Cool.
- Mm-hmm.
- Mm-hmm.
It was terrifying and awe-inspiring.
It's why I became a doctor.
You know? That feeling, it's likea drug.
I knew from the moment I started that I wanted to work at the very best hospitals, and I won't give that up.
Not for anyone.
Is someone asking you to? I got a job offer.
At Torbin General.
Torbin General in London? Oh, I knew it.
You keep doing this to me.
As soon as I let you in, as soon as I commit to us Come with me.
What? There are geese in England.
Sorry? For the pillows.
I'm serious.
Come with me.
I can't go without you, Maggie.
I can't.
I I'll come.
[chuckles] - You will? - Yeah.
Okay.
[both laugh] I watched you as you slept Mm, but, seriously, we need a bigger bed.
[laughs] Red arrows fell around us And before the sea came in [knock on door] [sighs] I knew you were the one - Hey.
- Hey.
Sorry, I didn't realize you were coming over.
I already put Luke down.
Oh, that's okay.
I gave him a few extra hugs this morning.
Should tide me over.
Brought you, uh, dim sum from that place you like with the flowers on the tables.
Bringing out the big guns? Ohh, yeah.
Listen.
Um Blake was, uh was this poor messed-up kid with, um, very cruel parents.

I'll prove it to you if I have to.
