Have You Told Him?

- Yeah.
It's good, right? - Yeah, stylish.
Want a coffee? - I'll get it.
- No, no, no, it's on me.
I owe you.
I came home from Guatemala because I found a lump that turned out to be testicular cancer.
Now they want to operate to make sure it doesn't spread.
But it's not serious.
- You're gonna be good then? - Yeah.
Yeah, I hope so.
I should've told you.
I know that.
And I'm sorry for going back and forth.
I just couldn't talk about it anymore.
When people hear the word "cancer," you'd think it rhymed with "death," so - You're not going to die.
- Not this time.
I think you're great.
And you're fierce.
But this whole thing with us I just I just can't.
Surprise! Hey, look what I found in Niels-Anders' office.
How lovely.
Your mum got a double-page spread in Billed Bladet.
It looks so good.
Apparently, it's been 25 years since she won the Eurovision prelims.
Hey, listen, um Yeah, yeah.
So, I'm a bit busy.
Can can we do this later? Yeah, so Well, I know your schedule off by heart.
So I know your first patient is in half an hour.
What is it? So I saw Mathias.
Oh, okay.
Did he tell you why he didn't show up for dinner, or? Yeah, he I bet he's married, isn't he? Well, that's what I think, at least.
He has cancer.
- What? - Yeah.
He'll be all right.
- It's not serious.
- Come on.
Cancer is generally serious.
What'd you mean? Yeah, but it's, uh The prognosis is good, but they weren't sure if it'd spread, so he needed emergency surgery.
And that's why he didn't come to meet me.
I see.
I kind of had this premonition - That he had cancer? - No.
That that he was lying.
He was covering up the truth, you know? Okay, he wasn't lying.
He just didn't say.
- That's understandable.
- Okay.
He neglected to tell you the truth.
- That's kind of the same thing as lying.
- Okay.
He had every chance to tell you, and he didn't.
It's really odd not to tell you something this serious.
- I don't think that he - I don't know what it is about him.
- I just have that - It's not that really bad feeling about this.
He lied to you! - Or I guess you could say, like - Keep going there.
he neglected to tell you the truth.
Nana? Hello? Can you please say something? Hello? What the hell is going on? I'm pregnant.
Uh - Did you hear what I said? - You're joking? No.
I'm deadly serious.
I'm pregnant.
Yeah, yeah.
- Babe! Stop! - Yeah.
Yeah? - Congratulations! - Thanks.
No! I mean, yes! Oh, my God.
- But that's fantastic.
- Yeah? - Isn't it? - No.
- It really is.
- Yeah, yeah.
I'm just a bit - Well, yeah, me too, but - Yeah, okay.
But who who's the father? - Who's the father? - Yeah, it's - Is it Mathias? - Huh? No, he's ill and we, uh We haven't done anything.
Then it has to be Soren? - You've not slept with anyone else? - No.
- It has to be Soren then, yeah? - Yeah, yeah.
It has to be.
- It has to be.
- Have you told him? No.
- Okay, but - And no one else could know.
- Not even him.
Not yet.
- But he's going to need to know Sure, I'm going to tell him.
I mean Uh, I need some time.
What's with the face? Oh, babe.
Babe, it's so incredible! You're gonna be so happy.
Why can't I keep my big mouth shut? "Soren is the dad.
" Fuck! Okay.
Well, I guess he could be the dad if I just say it's him.
Otherwise, it'll just be me and the baby.
Shit, I can't.
Poor kid.
Maybe Soren could be the dad.
Is that such a terrible idea? Okay.
Now, take a deep breath.
Sweetheart, honey, can you just hum inside your head instead? Yeah.
I just thought it might be soothing.
Take a deep breath.
Hey, could we could we turn it off? Just turn it off.
Yeah, yeah.
Of course.
It just You know, they said that it might be nice to have a piece of music - to remind us of this - Yeah, I know.
But it doesn't have to be 80's lesbian pathos hell.
No, no, it's okay.
Relax for me if you can? - Relax your pelvis.
- What about a different song? Uh, maybe some Jada.
Uh, how do you spell that? J-A-D-A.
Okay, never mind.
Can we just be silent? Yeah.
Of course.
We'll be completely quiet, darling.
It's fine.
Try to relax as much as you can and just breathe.
It's a It's a duet with Thomas Helmig.
- It's not very lesbian.
- Helle! Let's make a baby.
I just think that I might be too old for Marie.
Of course.
And one day she'll realize, and then what? She bloody loves you, Helle.
It's obvious.
Well, she doesn't like my music taste.
And I'm certain that she hates the way I dress.
Yes, but she still loves the rest of you, doesn't she? Uh - Hi.
- Hi.
Is this the queue for coffee? It takes ages, you know.
I've been making a cortado for 15 minutes.
Go ahead.
Go ahead.
- Okay, yeah.
- Go ahead.
You might be different, but you're going to make great parents, Helle.
- Mm.
- Oh! And it's safe to say, your child won't like Anne Linnet or Jada.
- I hope so.
- Yeah.
Oh, Nana.
Thank you.
- Thanks.
- Okay.
The child doesn't really need to know that it wasn't I mean my swimmers, right? - We haven't told anyone.
- I guess.
But that's quite unethical.
We'd be bad parents if we kept that from our child.
Yeah, we, uh - Our advice is usually to tell the truth.
- Mm-hmm.
There's a lot of research that shows it's better for the child to, um I understand it's tricky.
It's a very big decision.
I, um It's a bit It's hard.
Maybe we should think about booking another appointment.
And then you can have more time to think about it.
This might sound ridiculous, but have you tried making a list? A list? Yeah, like, pros and cons, you know.
Try it.
My husband and I often do it when we're not sure about something.
Um a while back, he was in a situation very similar.
And it helped.
What if there's a same amount of pros and cons to consider? Thanks, Simone.
Can you print a delivery slip for this? It's for, um, Andrea Larsen.
Meet at the bowling alley? That's what we said.
Or maybe out the front, if you like.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Uh, Helle said I needed a new key card, and she told me you're the person to speak to about these things.
Yeah, she's right.
Yeah? Yeah - Let me - Okay.
Uh - Uh, do you Have you printed the - Uh, no, not yet.
- Because I need to - Sure, okay.
It'll only take a minute.
- I can come back later, if that's better.
- Yep.
You can You can come back if you'd father.
- Hmm? - I mean, if you'd rather, you can come back.
- It's no problem.
- I'll do that.
I'll just I'll just put it in your pigeonhole.
- Okay.
Many thanks.
- Okay.
Oh, my God! Really? If you'd father? You okay, babe? Yeah.
Yes, uh He wants you to speak to him.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Is there a problem? Uh, um, I just need to Take your time.
Don't stress over it.
I mean, there's no hurry at all.
I've never had this problem before.
I mean, when I'm in the mood, I can - I just mean, when I'm in the mood - I'm sure it's all right.
It's just, when I do it at home I mean, not all the time No, no, but I'm sure you're able to do it.
- Yeah, I mean - Yeah.
When you want to.
Yeah, but what if I don't know what.
I mean, what if it's not possible? What if it doesn't happen? If what doesn't - Hi.
- Hi.
Let me know if I can be of any service to you with that.
Okay? I don't need help.
- I don't want help.
- Okay.
Uh, we have this thermal bag you can take home.
- Okay.
- You can borrow it if you like.
And then we can rebook the insemination for tomorrow.
Does that work? Could you maybe tell her that you think tomorrow would be better? In your professional opinion, it's not good today.
- And it'll be better tomorrow? - Yeah, it's better tomorrow.
Today is, uh - A stupid day? - Yeah, it's a stupid day.
- Sure.
- Tomorrow's good.
- Mm-hmm.
- Thanks.
"Hi, it's Nana.
I've bloody fallen pretty pregnant.
You're the father.
" That took ten seconds.
The number of seconds doesn't necessarily make it easier to say.
You're going to have to tell him soon.
Seriously, you know that.
Yeah, yeah.
But if you're not sure whether you want him to be a part of the child's future, you just need to say it.
- See what happens.
- You know, I just think that I I just wish I was in love with him.
You sound like the losers in Married at First Sight.
Married at First Sight? Yeah.
The people who think they're going to undergo love at first sight, and don't.
They get really disappointed.
Love can sneak up on you unseen.
- Hi, Mum.
- Hi, sweetie! Hi.
Listen, I have fantastic news.
Guess what? You saw that I rang? Oh, what? You saw that I rang? No, you didn't.
You must have my old number.
You've had the same number for three years now.
Are you stressed, sweetie? You sound stressed.
- No, I - Are you sure you're not stressed? I am not.
It's important to relax once in a while, you know.
I'm not stressed.
I'm just calling to say some good news.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
So what? What's the good news, then? I don't think I want to tell you now.
Come on, Mum, just say it! I don't like your tone.
There's nothing wrong with my tone! - For God's sake! - You're stressed.
No, I'm not stressed! I think it's better if I call later.
Are you actually - Fine.
- Then you have time to calm down.
I can't believe her.
I'm doing this all on my own.
What if I have this child and I never meet anyone? And what if I'm really shit as a mum? What if it doesn't like me? Of course, it will like you.
And there's no such thing as a shit mother.
- Uh - Yeah.
- Okay, you could say it.
- Yeah, no.
Yeah, there are some bad mums, but I'm certain you'll be a really, really great one.
What if things don't work out? It's such a big thing.
What if I can't do it? ONE OF DENMARK'S BIGGEST STARS IS COMING HOME And, uh, how long how long have you been trying? - Two years.
- Three years.
- Yeah, three.
- Three.
And how long have you been together? - Three, I'd say.
- Five years.
We've tried everything, uh - sexually.
- Yeah.
- Everything.
- Different positions, times of day, - different locations.
- Mm-hmm.
Inside, outside, uh, in a forest, in a van.
It was rented.
Um, we don't have a van, so we had to rent.
Okay, listen.
Uh, look, I'm gonna be straight, 'cause I'm pretty good at lying or rather at telling when people are lying.
It's just you do know that you can get help even if you're not really partners? If you're not a couple, then the donor has to go through various tests for hereditary diseases, STDs Well, I absolutely don't have any STDs.
Okay, so, um you lied so you could get treatment earlier? My mother isn't good.
She's been given one year.
Or one and a half, if she's lucky.
She's always dreamed of being a grandmother, and I I always wanted children, so We're we're best friends.
We've known each other since primary school.
Ida's mum is like a second mum to me.
I'm entirely certain.
Can you come for your first test next week? - Of course, yeah.
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- Thanks.
- Thank you.
- It's a deal.
- Bastian, no playing indoors.
- Hi.
Come here.
- I'm gonna throw it.
- You can't throw.
Put it down.
- See you in a bit.
- See you later! Bye! I'll look after him, maybe.
Hey, watch it.
Oh, yeah.
You ready? Hard as you can.
One, two, three! As hard as you can! Shit.
- Are you okay? - Yeah, yeah.
- I am.
I'm fine.
- We just Yeah.
I didn't know there was a match on, so - You have to watch out.
- I have to be careful around here.
- It was you that made me hit the man.
- Oh, really? Ah, that's okay, I'm fine.
Would you like to play? I think Soren's probably busy.
I I've got a bit of time, yeah.
Yeah, five minutes.
- I'm really good, though.
- Yeah, yeah, so I'm on your team.
- Okay.
- What about me? - No.
He's with me, okay? - Are you ready, Nana? I'm on my own? - Okay.
- To be annihilated? - Well, you're not as good as me.
- No? What? I'm very good.
- Oh.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, pass it in.
- Over there, Bastian! Yes, perfect.
Perfect Bastian! - Oh! - Oh, great! I'll go defend.
Good defending.
That's very good.
Oh! I hit the post and it went in! What a goal! Okay, can you Reckon you can take a shot from over there, Bastian? Whoops! Great! Good.
Well done, Bastian.
Now They used to call me Soren Messi at school.
Whoa! Did I score? - No.
- Was it outside the post? - Yeah.
- All right.
I'll get it.
Bastian, are you ready? Yes.
So you think those chanterelles are past their best now? Are you asking me to make you dinner? They look really happy in the photos.
Your parents.
They got divorced when I was ten.
I think they tried really hard to make sure we didn't feel it.
We spend Christmas together, stuff like that.
And do you want to have children? - As we're speaking of divorce? - Yeah, um, as we're speaking of divorce.
Yeah, I do.
I'd like to have two or three? Yeah.
And then we move to the country so they can grow up surrounded by nature.
Of course.
- What? - I don't know.
You're just a very wholesome person.
- Mm.
- It's a good thing.
Your children will be wholesome too.
Kind of children who will become scouts and rescue animals.
They'll never take the biggest piece of cake just in case someone more deserving needs it.
Well, thanks.
I've never thought about it like that before.
Well, one day, I hope to have reasonably wholesome children.
Of course, you will.
You'll be the best dad ever.
To any child.
Maybe even mine.
And you don't need to know that it's technically not yours.
Then it won't really matter that you have no individual style.
Maybe I just need to try again.
Because love can creep up on you unseen, can't it? Yeah, I'd like the flowers to say something like, "Get well soon.
" And, well, "Thinking of you.
" Like, for a guy that's got cancer.
But write something that's cheerful.
Or maybe "I think you're great.
Sorry about the cancer.
" Do you know what I mean? Let's go with the tulips.
- Morning.
- What's up? - What's up? You're not getting off that easy.
Bastian told me Soren joined him for football yesterday.
Anything else you'd like to tell me? I mean, is there anything? Uh What else can I tell you? We, um We ate at his place and, um Yeah? We had dhal.
- Did you tell him yet? - Tell him That you're pregnant.
Uh, no, not yet.
But I stayed the night.
It was quite a strange evening.
Okay, but strange in a good way or They need to get their fucking shit together! - Could you calm down? - It's not It's their responsibility, isn't it? It's my job on the line! We'll find a solution, Niels-Anders.
It's your neck, Helle! And it's my neck! And it's Nana's! - What's happening? - We're all totally fucked because Jannick's sperm is a mess! - Anton, what's going on? - Fucking hell! Niels-Anders used the wrong donor sperm to inseminate a client.
I was supposed to double-check the bank slip, and I forgot to.
I really don't understand how this could've happened.
The straws must have got mixed up.
I don't understand, either.
They they usually check it.
Not thoroughly enough, apparently.
Someone is going to lose their medical license, and it's not going to be me!
