- [Soren.]
Nana? - Hi.
- Good morning, miss.
- Good morning, sir.
- Stressful morning? - A bit, yeah.
I've got some clients inside.
Well, it's just, we didn't get much time together - last time.
- Yeah, thanks, it was nice.
- We had a nice time.
- Yeah.
- So, I went mushroom picking this weekend.
- You went mushroom picking? - Yeah.
- Amazing.
- Chanterelles and oyster mushrooms.
- You don't say? - And they make such a good soup.
- Great.
Maybe you'd like to come over for dinner next week? That sounds great, yeah.
My week's pretty, but - Okay.
- Okay.
Have a nice day.
And you.
- Is that the new GE scanner? - It is.
That's awesome.
I've been bugging my boss about this for six months.
It shows both the endometrium and follicles in 3D.
And it's smaller in size.
So vaginal penetration will be much nicer.
[clears throat.]
[upbeat music.]
- Morning.
- Morning.
What's up, Bastian? Did you drop out first section again? Mom, will you let me do that? Uh, no, sweetie.
- I'm afraid that's not a thing.
- I think you can if you want.
- Uh, it's not an option.
- God, you're smart.
The boy is sick and his father is kite surfing with his new girlfriend.
You know I can hear you, right? Yeah, uh - He's got good hearing.
- Yeah.
- Did I see you outside with Fit Physio? - Well, he's nice.
- He is.
- Good-looking.
- Very.
- A little bit boring.
Wasn't it like a week ago at Friday Drinks? You made it sound like he practically invented sex.
I don't think I really have time for dating right now.
- Mm.
- I just have too much work.
Here's a good idea.
We could swap.
Let's say that you're the single mother, I'm the doctor who gets to bang gorgeous physios - and pay the highest tax rate.
- Yeah? Can you feel it? But I'm shit at role play.
If I If I win at bowling, we have to switch.
Nana! - Sorry, I forgot.
- Seriously, come on! - Yeah, but - How can you forget - the highlight of the week? - I don't know.
- [staff.]
Nana? - Uh, yeah, it's unbelievable.
I don't have time to get my bowling shoes.
Then do it in your socks.
- Oh, yeah, like last time? - It worked out fine.
- Okay, remember that the new guy.
You - Hold on, I know this.
- His name is Andreas.
- Anton.
- Name's Anton.
- Yes, well done.
Anton will be shadowing you today.
- Thanks for that.
- Mm.
It's gonna be over really soon, Latifa.
So the last follicle is draining now.
- You're doing great, baby.
- Thanks.
I'm now removing it.
Well done.
Was it bad? [Latifa.]
No, it was okay.
I mean, it's not the nicest thing in the world.
[breathes heavily.]
- [Nana.]
Uh - [staff.]
Yeah, we got five.
- Say again? - [staff.]
We got five.
We got five.
Wouldn't it be better if there were more than that? Quality is much more important than quantity, so it's great.
- How do you know the quality's good? - [Nana.]
You're only 32.
At your age, the quality of your eggs should be totally fine.
When I had my twins, I was only working with three eggs.
It can be enough.
That's very nice to hear.
- Is it tough having twins? - [Nana.]
Sure is.
Really tough.
I never sleep, for example, and, um And the only thing they want is Coco Pops for supper.
But when they're yours, you you just think it's cute.
I I can't stand the thought of it, losing another.
It's, um [sighs.]
Actually, I don't know if I can handle it.
I felt exactly the same.
- Did you? - Didn't wanna take the risk.
I was terrified.
I ended up gaining 25 kilos.
I was just sprawled out on the sofa eating Marabou and Daim, bingeing Friends.
[Lene chuckles.]
Ten series, uh That's part of the month, seriously.
[both laugh.]
I'm glad to hear you say that.
Tell you what, here's my private number.
If there's anything wrong, you can just call me.
Day or night.
I mean it, really.
I appreciate it, thank you.
Okay, can I - Can I show you how to do it? - Great, thanks.
You know models always look so angry.
Why is that? - Because they're always starving? - Yeah.
Nana, I just want to say I'm really impressed with the way you talk to the clients.
- Thanks.
- [Anton.]
Yeah, I can tell that Well, it means a lot to them that you that you talk about yourself and you talk about your kids and all that.
- Thanks.
- [Anton.]
- Which kids did you talk about today? - Oh, it's not just the twins? - [Simone.]
There's Lea, she's 11.
- Yep.
- She's wonderful at jazz ballet.
- It's true.
- So you have three children? - And how's Maxi? Still getting homesick? - [Nana.]
Well, things are better.
- Yeah? I think it was just a phase.
Oh, he just went to Bogo.
- [Simone.]
Yeah? - For three days with his class.
- He loves Billie Eilish.
- Oh, she's good.
Here you go.
Thank you.
- So you have four children? - Yeah.
Well, I mean, um it depends on the situation, more or less.
As in shared custody? Okay.
Imagine, uh, that you have a dentist and they have really bad teeth.
- [Anton.]
- Hmm? That wouldn't work.
- Mm.
- [Simone.]
Right? Yeah, so if they find it reassuring that I have kids, then uh then I do.
So you don't have kids then? Nope.
I, uh, have to, uh Want to chip in for Helle's birthday present? For sure.
What are you thinking? Yeah, well, Niels-Anders suggested a sea kayak.
- A sea kayak? - Yeah.
A sea kayak, yeah.
She'll never use it, that's for sure.
I know, right? I don't think so either.
- She will, just wait.
- [Nana.]
Wait and see? - Wait and see.
- [Nana.]
A sea kayak? - [Niels-Anders.]
She will.
- [Helle.]
Good morning, everybody.
- Good morning.
- Hi.
Welcome to yet another wonderful weekly staff meeting.
Let me begin by saying how excited I am to work with you all every day.
- Likewise, sure.
- [Helle.]
So, I have a great news.
Um, the numbers are looking [Nana.]
Maybe I should just say yes to mushroom soup with Fit Physio.
But who actually goes mushroom picking? But he's so good-looking.
Like, so good-looking.
And it was really nice last time.
A little awkward, but it was nice.
But if we do it again, he might think it's getting serious.
Mmm, sex and soup, sex and soup And Nana, it's your clients in particular.
I don't know how you do it, but they they get pregnant by the dozen.
- Mm.
That's great.
- [Helle.]
[Niels-Anders blowing.]
Oh, so now, Niels-Anders would like to share an idea.
Uh [clears throat.]
Well, you see, it's come to my attention that several of our competitors have launched an all-inclusive package - Yeah.
- where all of the scans and medications are included in the price, so there aren't any Yeah, so there aren't any surprises when the clients Excuse me.
But isn't that I mean, come on.
Isn't that just a way of swindling more money from people? No.
I mean, it is.
No, not at all.
I think it's more transparent for clients.
It could be really good, you know, for our bottom line.
Bottom line? I mean, it's it's not a football game, is it? - Wait.
- What? A foo Football game? Yeah, with lines.
- Oh, you mean the touch line? - Yeah, the touch line.
Can I just interject? If no one [chuckles.]
like me, for instance, - because I'm the boss, you know? - Mm.
If no one focuses on our revenue, then we can't afford to give a client a discount every once in a while, or buy a new scanner, for example.
For example.
- [Helle.]
And other stuff, Niels-Anders.
- Well, yes, but - [Helle.]
Yeah, well, okay.
- So, you're - [Helle.]
We'll look into it.
- Okay, fine, then it's fine.
As I've said, Nana, I've not decided yet, so let's move on.
- One quick thing.
- [Helle.]
Yeah? New fruit arrangement.
Can I just Excuse me.
Uh - Nana? Do you have a second? - Yeah, sure.
- It's about, uh, Marie.
- Oh, your new girlfriend.
Oh! - We've been together for almost two years.
- Oh, yeah.
But It's just that we we've been thinking about starting treatment.
- Oh.
That's so nice.
- And Yeah.
- Congrats, that's great.
- Thanks, and So, we would really like it Well, I guess I'm asking if you'd do Marie's insemination for us, huh? - Uh - I understand it's a bit too [blows raspberry.]
"Shit, the boss's wife.
" Pressure! You know, "Such an honour!" Am I right? I'm just joking.
But, look, I'm just - Hi.
- Hi, Niels-Anders.
You mustn't worry.
We're just regular clients.
So, whenever works best for you, okay? Our calendar's busy.
I'm sure you're aware, but But it'd be great if we can start within the next two weeks 'cause that would fit best with Marie's cycle.
And, um, Niels-Anders doesn't have time? We both wanted Nana.
- Uh Okay then.
- I mean it.
Thank you.
[relief sigh.]
It means a lot to me.
Thanks, really.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Isn't it beautiful? I'm just saying the lane is book for seven o'clock, and I still have records to file and I also need to mop up the bank.
It won't take more than two minutes.
And I'll help you clean.
Yeah, but, Nana, you're really bad at it.
Jump up so we can try it out.
No, thanks.
- Hey, come on.
- No.
Come on, please, please, please, please, please.
I don't have the time and I don't want to.
- Why not? - Because I Uh, it'll, like - You've done this a thousand times.
- I've decided.
- It'll take two minutes.
- And you have to respect what I say.
It's a yes.
- I said "No.
" That's that.
- It's a no.
What? - You can scan me.
- No.
Are you serious? [Simone.]
- Are you ready? - Yes.
Move it a bit more to the right.
Or up.
The resolution's amazing, right? - Mm.
- Can we go further in? [Nana.]
Isn't it crazy how sharp the image is? Do you want me to check anything else? Hold it there a moment.
Can you try pressing the plus button down there? Freeze then plus.
And now zoom it.
- That's perfect.
- There.
Can you now press print? - [beeps.]
- That's all done.
Three follicles.
What does that mean? Well, it means that, uh Yeah, I don't know.
That I have maybe five or six cycles.
So that's six months to get pregnant? That's not too good.
At least not if you want to get pregnant.
- But do you want to? - I have no fucking idea.
I mean, you've always you've always said that maybe it just wasn't - it just wasn't meant to be.
- I know, I just never imagined that that my deadline was so near, you know? You're only 37.
Isn't that young to run out of eggs? I suppose.
Some women just have less eggs than others.
- Is it a genetic thing? - Yep.
That's another thing to thank my mother for.
Well, it's a good thing we're surrounded by sperm then.
Just take your pick, I say.
I don't know if I'm ready to do that.
And why is that? Didn't imagine doing it by myself.
How about that nice guy from Vejle? No, he's way too close to his mom and it was really weird.
Uh - Jacob! - Who the hell's Jacob? - Um, low hairline, tall.
- I don't remember.
- Frederik, yeah? - Oh, yeah.
He doesn't want kids.
I've got it.
Fit Physio.
Fit Physio? The Fit Physio.
Simone, you don't have kids with a shack from Friday work drinks.
Sure you do.
Why don't you pick someone from the sperm bank donor catalogue? And so so fuck it if a dad's not around.
Your turn.
Look at the great single mothers that you in the clinic help every day.
- Yeah, I know.
- They manage.
Yeah, I know.
I just don't think that my mom was Well, she was She was kind of I actually heard her song on the radio yesterday.
It's a shame you didn't inherit her singing talent.
I inherited fuck all.
I don't think I can do anything apart from work.
- That's not true.
- Is it? It isn't.
But I still use my phone to go to the toilet.
Uh, um, what what for? The torch.
For the torch? - What? - It's been six months, I haven't changed the light bulb yet.
I don't think I can be something to someone.
Come here.
[line ringing.]
[line beeps.]
You've reached Lise LaCour's voicemail.
I can't come to the phone right now, but if you sing your message, I might call you back.
Bye now! [beeps.]
Hi, Mom, it's me.
Uh I was just wondering how you are.
It's been a while, yeah.
Yeah, I just wanted to say hi.
So, hi.
And Bye-bye.

[Nana grunts.]
Come on.
Nana? Oh, shit.
Hi! - Can I help you with that? - No, no, it's, um, I think I think I I think I spilt it all over my new jeans.

- It's good to see you.
- It's good to see you.
- Uh, do you work here? - Uh, yeah, I work in, um Uh, um In a fertility clinic.
In, uh - here.
- Really? Uh, right here, so - Congrats, that's what you wanted.
- Thanks.
Yeah, that's right.
Yeah, but tell me, so, have you finished saving the planet? No, uh, it still needs saving.
Uh, I'm in Guatemala right now.
- But for a quick visit.
- Interesting.
- Yeah.
- Yep.
So what are you doing here at my work? Um, that is an interesting story.
Uh Uh, I have an appointment at the sperm bank.
Uh, the sperm bank.
Well, it's just, uh just around down staircase D.
Okay, thanks.
Otherwise, I'd been looking all day.
Of course.
But, um, how long are you here? Grab a drink? - Uh, yeah, of course.
- [Nana.]
Yeah? - Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- [Nana.]
This is - Simone.
- Mathias.
Hi, Mathias.
Nice to meet you.
- Yeah, um, I work with her here.
- I'll be up soon.
Just give me a minute.
- Okay.
- [Mathias.]
- Bye.
- [both.]
- Uh, yeah, yeah.
I've got to get going.
- Yeah, I should get to work.
It's, uh Okay, but we'll figure something out and, um, yeah.
See you soon, I guess.
- See you soon.
- And, um - have a nice day, yeah? - Thanks.
Same to you.
Or [groans.]
Who was that? Huh? Oh, I do - So is that an ex? - No! - I could tell from your face that he is.
- He isn't.
You never told me about him.
And we dated for six months, and, uh Yeah.
- It was really good, actually.
- [Simone.]
Hmm? [clicks tongue.]
He was great.
- Almost too great, actually.
- Yeah, who would really want that? That's why I always go for guys with "idiot" tattooed on their head.
They can't disappoint you.
Then he got a job with some NGO in South America and Yeah, then it ended.
So he's a definition of "the one who got away"? And you haven't seen each other for seven years? No.
Well, now he's back to donate sperm so that other people can have a beautiful child that will also save the world.
It's fate that he's come back right at this moment.
And you two were meant to see each other, you know? Did I say he lives in Guatemala? Listen, just one date with you and he won't be going back to Guatemala.
He'll be the father of your beautiful baby and you'll live happily ever after.
Yeah, uh Well, that's never gonna happen.
After he left, I deleted his number.
Then what's the issue if you're not gonna call him? Six fucking months.
I mean, come on.
- [knocking on door.]
- [door opens.]
- [staff.]
Nana, your next client is here.
- Great.
Thank you.
Send her in.
It's good that you called.
You shouldn't have to be sitting at home worrying.
Okay, let's have a little look, shall we? [breathes shakily.]
I'm just checking your pulse.
It's a little bit on the high side.
Is is that a bad thing? Not at all, no.
It's just because you're nervous.
Let me see here.
Hmm I knew it.
[muffled heartbeat.]
Okay, great.
- Is that the heart? - Yeah, it's a very strong little heart.
It's going so quickly.
Well, it must be busy in there.
Little human.
That's the best sound in the whole world.
[slow upbeat music.]
What's up? [Simone.]
Never tell anyone about this, ever.
What are you talking about? [Simone.]

I'm not calling him, anyway.
At first, I thought I saw you everywhere.
You know, at the market, on the street.
In Chile.
- That was strange.
Why would you be there? - Right.
I actually thought about writing to you, but [Mathias.]
- It was a bit hard when you left.
- Yeah, it was a bit messy.
- It was a bit messy.
- [soft chuckle.]
It's pretty strange, you know? That we bumped into each other.
It's not a place where you typically run into someone you know, yeah.
- Are you cold? - A little.
Thank you.
It's really great to Yeah.
To see you again.

- It's okay.
I'm sorry, that was too much.
Can we maybe just Can we just pretend that didn't happen? - Yeah, yeah, yeah, no.
Let's try.
- Okay, good.
[both chuckle.]
All fine.
And then I ask him, "Do you want kids? When do you want kids?" - So, uh - I mean, seriously.
Uh, okay.
Just pause a second for me, yeah? Let me just get this straight.
- So, you're kissing - Yeah.
and you sort of ask him if he wants to have kids with you? Yeah.
Yeah, so, then he kind of, uh, froze.
Yeah, but like, don't blame him.
That's a pretty hardcore That's a pretty hardcore question for a first day asking if he - It is awful.
- What? - Uh, no.
- Look at me.
Is it awful? - Yeah.
- Fuck! - Well, it's probably not the smartest.
- What a total fuck-up of me.
Okay, I'll take a break from cleaning, we'll go up to the clinic, we'll listen to some Poul and have ourselves a little shot.
[Nana groaning.]
- Are you feeling it? - Yeah.
