B Positive (2020) s02e09 Episode Script

Heartburn, Woodstock and Ribs

1 Previously on B Positive Hey, Mr.
Nomad, how's your trip going? Great.
Just great.
The freedom of the open road is truly exhilarating.
Just do me a favour.
Text me your location every few hours, you know, to help with the search.
So, tomorrow I have to be at the hospital 9:00 a.
I know.
It's in my calendar.
You're the reason I'm doing this.
And you remember that when you're able to run and play with the other children.
I saw a hip replacement surgery on YouTube.
They pretty much hang you from the ceiling.
If you're trying to make me jealous, it's working.
Oh, my God.
Is everything okay? Call 911.
- How's Harry? - GINA: I haven't talked to him yet.
You're not at the hospital? I'm in jail.
Any word on Meredith? She's still in the ICU.
Let's just get there.
We'll get my car later.
What were you busted for? Remember a few years ago when I got arrested for selling fake IDs? Yeah.
Why is it even illegal? All you were trying to do is help kids drink.
We come here too damn much.
My third husband died in this hospital.
No, my second.
My third died on a boat.
Well, in the ocean.
He almost made it back to the boat.
I don't want to die in a hospital.
I want to be out in the woods.
Perhaps a sylvan glade, like Walden Pond.
That just means your corpse will get eaten by the coyotes and rats and whatnot.
That's fine.
I'll still be part of the cycle of life.
They'll start with your eyes.
Would you please shut up?! - Any news? - Not yet.
I can't believe you're walking already.
They made me, sadistic sons of bitches.
Thank you.
Is your doctor American? What does that have to do with anything? So no.
Hey, how's Meredith? We don't know.
Harry's with her.
Norma, I am so sorry I wasn't here.
Can we please not do this now? Do you forgive me? What's important is that you forgive yourself.
- I don't.
- Then I'm happy.
How is she? She's gone.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Oh, I'm so glad you're here.
I came as quick as I could.
How's Harry? He hasn't come out of his room, and he won't talk to anybody.
- Mm.
I'll check on him.
- Thank you.
Here, sit.
Sorry you had to cut your trip short.
Oh, it's okay.
Things weren't going that great.
Why not? Well, I met a woman.
We got drunk and, uh, you know No, I don't know.
Come on, you know I don't know.
Tell me.
We had intimate relations.
Which I was led to believe were mutually satisfying.
However, upon my awakening, I discovered she had robbed me.
Oh, oh She took my cash, credit cards, laptop, even my EpiPen.
Luckily she didn't find my backup.
You poor thing.
I thought we had a real connection.
Then she took everything.
It was like a two-hour version of my marriage.
So what about you? You spent the night in jail.
Oh, it's not a big deal.
Me and a shoplifter from TJ Maxx, we talked about winter looks for under $30.
Still, behind bars with a common thief.
You had sex with a common thief.
Yes, I did.
- The more you give - The more you give - The more you live - The more you live Your happiness is relative And if you're feeling like crap It's time to face the fact It's your prerogative Your prerogative To be positive If we become What we believe Then as ye think ye shall receive So just let go of the past Pull your head from your ass It's your prerogative Your prerogative To be positive [KNOCK ON DOOR.]
Harry? It's me, Drew.
I know you're in there.
I heard you grunt.
- Hi.
- Yeah.
I'm so sorry about Meredith.
- She was a wonderful woman.
- Yeah.
Thank you.
So, uh, how you doing? You want to talk? Well, we're talking now.
Can you not hear me? Harry There's nothing to talk about.
I knew she was gonna die, she died, I'm sad.
End of story.
So what's going on here? I'm giving away her clothes.
See anything you like? You don't have to do that today.
You might want to take some time.
For what? It's just stuff.
Doesn't mean anything.
I'm just saying you might not be ready to part with Drew, I appreciate you stopping by.
But I'm good.
Well, I'm here if you need me.
Thank you.
You know, that thank you kind of implied goodbye.
Oh, let me give you a hand.
Ah, thank you.
Gabby, do me a favour.
Go to my room and get my painkillers.
- Okay.
- I've counted them.
: Okay.
So, how you feeling? Tired, but for the first time in months my hip didn't wake me up last night.
Hip-hip hooray! Did you see what I did there? I hope you don't have a scar.
Aw, who cares? No one's gonna see it.
Ah, sure.
For you that's probably true.
It's open.
I was wondering how it went with Harry.
He'll be okay.
He just needs some time.
Uh, I hope so.
What's that smell? Oh, I microwaved some salmon last night.
Do you want a chunk? I think I'm eating it now.
Is that dill I'm tasting? Good for you.
I just wanted to say again how happy I am that you're back.
Me, too.
So this van girl - Hannah.
- Hannah.
What's the deal with Hannah? Well, I told you.
You know, we spent the night together, and then she ripped me off.
Wow, that's crazy.
Is she cute? I think so, yeah.
In a "doesn't shave her arms or legs or really anywhere" kind of way.
Why do you care? Well, why wouldn't I? You know, you're my friend and You're my friend! [AWKWARD LAUGH.]
What's interesting? Nothing's interesting.
You know what, it's cold and it stinks in here, so I'm going.
- Interesting.
- It's not interesting! Oh, it's interesting.
- Can I tell you something? - Sure.
I'm more comfortable with all the touching because you're gay, but it'd be a lot sexier if you were straight.
You sound like my high school girlfriend.
We gotta get that hip moving before you start your physical therapy.
Now, hang on.
Ooh, careful with those.
They're pretty strong.
Oh, I can handle it.
I took the brown acid at Woodstock.
Who is it? Spencer.
All right.
What do you want? Okay, come in.
The cashier tried to sell me some fruity seltzer.
I reminded her that I pee standing up.
All right.
Thanks, thanks.
And I won't waste your time asking how you're doing.
Thanks again.
You know, when my Jackie passed, everybody was all, "How are ya? How you doing?" And I'm like, "How the hell do you think I am? I'm sad, and I don't know how to work the dishwasher.
" You know what I hate? "I'm here for you.
" Well, will you go somewhere else for me? The weirdest thing, I started having terrible heartburn.
- Really? - Yeah.
So I went to my doctor American, by the way And he says, "Have you had any changes in your lifestyle?" So I tell him my wife died, and it was like a pipe burst.
All of a sudden I'm spilling my guts about Jackie like I'm at a slumber party.
Don't tell me you cried.
Like I was watching Brian's Song all over again.
But, I gotta tell you, right after that, the heartburn was gone.
So what are you saying? You're gonna do what you want to, but talking helped me.
So you want me to talk? You want me to open up.
All right, how's this? I can never look at you again without picturing you crying.
That's fair.
I was told that this was your idea.
I was thinking maybe we could start a tradition.
Every time a resident passes, we could gather together and celebrate their life.
- Every time? - Is that a problem? It is during flu season.
Here, try this.
I made it specially for our older residents.
What's in it? Kahlua and Ensure.
- You gotta be kidding me.
- What? Does my attire not meet your approval? Uh, no.
You gotta be kidding me that a woman could look so hot and yet appropriate.
Thank you.
Good save.
Bert, what is this? Baby back ribs, baby.
I thought you were making finger foods.
Ribs are finger food.
Show me how you eat 'em without using your fingers.
No, I was thinking little sandwiches and canapes, hors d'oeuvres.
Take a bite.
- Bert, I don't want to.
- Take a bite.
- Oh, my God.
- Right? I forgot there was a dead woman for a second.
It's the meat that heals a broken heart.
Thank you for coming to celebrate Meredith.
I bet you she's in heaven right now with some serious FOMO.
Serious what? FOMO.
Fear Of Missing Out.
Would it kill you to say that? Sorry.
Harry, would you like to say a few words about your wonderful wife of 55 years? I'm good.
Oh, um Okay, would anyone like to share some memories? I've got something.
When I first moved here, which was years ago, I was going through a rough time.
Meredith, whom I'd never spoken to, one day invites me to a casino.
We played penny slots for hours, and then hit the all-you-can-eat buffet.
Then she pulls out this big tote bag.
What we lost gambling, we took home twice as much in king crab legs.
She was my first friend here, Harry.
To Meredith.
To Meredith.
I-I'd like to say something.
Some time ago, Meredith and I started a book club.
We never got a chance to talk about our last book, Catcher in the Rye, but she left me her thoughts.
"Holden Caulfield was a schmuck.
" "All he does is call people phonies.
" "I wish he'd taken the time to get to know them.
" "He would have seen everyone has something" "that makes them special.
" "And connecting with people is what gives life its meaning.
" Meredith enriched my life's meaning.
Her passing means the end of our book club, but I'll always be grateful for our time together.
I got her hooked on the classics, she got me hooked on The Bachelorette.
And this year she's black! - To Meredith! - To Meredith.
Gina, thank you for putting this together.
It was very nice.
You're welcome.
Are you sure you don't want to say a few words? Oh, very.
Okay, um, then I will.
Watch it.
Everybody! Hello! Um, will you turn off the music? Thank you.
I would like to take this moment to talk about what Meredith meant to me.
Who wants buffalo wings? Bert, not now.
Even before I bought Valley Hills I'll just put 'em here.
Thanks! There's spicy and mild.
They're all mixed together, so be careful.
Bert! She said she wanted finger foods.
Even before I bought Valley Hills, Meredith was one of my favorite people here.
And after I took over, we got even closer.
I guess I've I've grown closer to all of you.
And so And so now that she's I'm so sorry.
Oh, boy, I got a hot one.
Hey, buddy.
Meredith's not here anymore.
Don't believe me, huh? Yeah.
It still smells like her, huh? I miss her like hell already.
But honestly part of me is relieved.
I dreaded losing her for so long, but now that she's, you know I feel like this, this this weight has been lifted.
And I I hate myself for thinking like that.
The worst part is that she would know exactly what to say to make me feel better.
DREW: There you are.
- You okay? - No.
I'm sorry.
It's not just Meredith, it's it's everyone in this place.
What do you mean? When I looked around and I saw all their faces, um I realized they're all gonna die, and I'm gonna have to give that speech over and over again.
You've worked here for years.
Other people have died.
It was always sad, but it feels different now.
When I was driving the van, I was just trying to get through the day so I could go back to my real life.
And now these people are my life.
And when they die, it feels like I'm losing a family member.
Except you actually like these people.
I'm just gonna keep getting close to them, and I'm gonna keep losing them.
And when they go, a whole new batch will come in, and then they'll become family, and then they'll die, and I-I can't handle that.
You're thinking about this all wrong.
It's not about losing people, it's about connecting with them.
Drew, that's what makes this so hard.
Well, yeah.
It's never gonna be easy.
But you are making a huge difference in their lives when they need someone the most.
Just like you did with me.
So what do I do now? You go back in there with the people you love, and you enjoy every moment you are lucky enough to have with them.
I'm glad you got robbed and came back.
- Interesting.
- It's not interesting.
Oh, I'm telling you, it's interesting.
- Harry? - Morning.
What are you doing? Going on the road with you.
Get out of my bed.
