But she started to feel sick after the concert, so - Your mum's a singer? - Yeah, she is.

- Yeah, makes sense.
That does make sense, doesn't it? Listen, I just wanted to ask have you spoken to, uh, Simone at all? - No.
- No.
It's just that Simone is stopping by later to get her other things.
Oh, and, uh, don't worry, we're making sure she gets a great severance package.
We just can't We just can't keep her after that journalist called.
It's very exciting.
I got the scoop in the kitchen this morning.
- I I have a client.
- Okay.
So I'm going to go, but Let let me just point out.
It's actually so exciting that it's something we have to keep under wraps for now, okay? - Hi.
- Can Christina come in? - I can wait outside.
- No, no, no.
Come in.
Sit, sit.
I could see that you had no one in here with you.
Thought it was okay she came in.
Uh, the door, please? - What? - Close the door.
Oh, right.
- Have a seat.
- Thank you.
So how are things? Yeah, all good.
I think I think, uh Uh, I decided on the abortion.
But, uh - Hi, again.
- Hi, Tobias.
Come in.
- Take a seat.
- Hi.
- I hope it's okay that I join you.
- Of course.
Yes, well, I, uh I mean, we have decided together that, uh, we want to keep the baby, even though we're separating.
Yeah, so even though we're not together, we want to have this child together.
That's great news! Thank you.
Thank you.
There it is.
So strange.
- Would you like a picture? - Mm.
Let's see.
Um So pretty little one.
Well, it's I think it's because of the system.
I'm new here, so I just need to learn how to use it better.
- Oh! Hey, Nana? Nana! - Yeah? How long will the consultation take, do you reckon? This is This is Malene, your next appointment.
- Oh, yeah, that's right.
- My name's Marianne.
- Sorry.
- Hi! Yeah, so we're going to be discussing initiating treatment, so, um We'll be back half an hour, maybe.
Is there anywhere I can park for that long? - Uh Yep.
- I I'll find out for you, okay? Look, I have I have an EasyPark, but I'm An EasyPark? - Yeah.
- Hi.
- Hi, Simone.
Well, I - Hi.
- I'm so glad you could come in.
- Yeah, of course.
- I have plenty of time now.
- Yes.
Yeah, well, here, it's busy as usual.
Nana has a client.
Would you like a coffee? - Yeah, can do.
- Great! Let's see if the machine will make one of those delicious flat whites.
- I'll take it black.
- Okay.
Like my conscience.
I just love your sense of humour.
- Come on.
- Nana? - Nana? - Yeah? - Are you ready? - For what? For Marianne.
Yes, of course.
Yeah, so I supposed that deep down, I always knew that I'd be on my own.
- Mm.
- Yeah.
- Does that make sense? - Yeah, uh, my husband feels the same.
Husband? Mm-hmm.
You just said you're a single mother.
I mean, I am, just not - in the classic sense.
- I don't understand.
Let's take a look at, uh Where was it? The treatment plan.
Wait a second, did you hear a word of what I've said? Yes.
This is making me feel very uncomfortable.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
- I'm sorry, I just got confused.
- Whether you're a single mother? - Yeah, yeah.
I I don't.
- You're not confused? - No.
- Or a mum? - Yeah.
- Okay, listen.
I honestly don't appreciate you just paying lip service to your patients.
We prefer to say "clients," rather than "patients.
" I mean Does it matter what you call if you're just chatting shit - and not even listening? - Mm.
I'm really sorry about this.
Can we can we start again and look at the - uh, treatment plan? - No.
You know what? That's simply not good enough.
No way near.
This is totally unacceptable.
It's just because it's our policy to say that they can't count on it.
Because, well, we really can't guarantee that.
Well, maybe they're just disappointed? - Yes, maybe.
That may well be it.
- Mm-hmm.
Good point.
Uh, are you finished, Nana? - Piece of shit! - Ooh.
Right in the smacker.
It I'm not sure it's a good idea to I'll just come back later.
- I don't need coffee right now.
- Me neither.
Hey, Helle? It's fine, I don't need any good coffee.
Wait! I need to talk.
Helle? Helle? Can I have a second? Yep.
Of course.
She really loves her job and I have never seen her make a mistake - like that before.
- No, and I actually don't disagree, Nana.
But technically speaking, there has been a mistake! And that just can't happen when we're dealing with human lives.
But it was me.
I forgot to set the alarm.
We were both here, we were drunk and Simone asked me to set the alarm because she was tired - Oh, but she was drunk.
Right? - Yeah, but - Anyway, she asked me to do it and I - None of that matters, does it? No, because because it shouldn't be a doctor, setting the alarm in a sperm bank.
Especially when they don't even work in that sperm bank.
- But the thing - Eh! No buts! Simone shouldn't have got drunk.
Because then we wouldn't have this problem, would we? And now what? Should I should I fire you? Over some minor issue with an alarm and leave your clients without a doctor? - Think of the impact.
- Yeah, but We'd have to change to a completely new doctor.
- Yeah, I get it.
It's not great.
- Did you get it? - But it's really important that you - Do you get it? Because I - I get it.
- Yeah, Helle.
But I don't think you do, actually.
What? - Sorry, uh - Hi.
Is it okay if I interrupt you? - Uh, yeah.
Is it? - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- What are you doing here, darling? - Well, I ran all the way here, um - Well - No, darling.
- I know.
- Darling - Oh, my God.
- Yes.
Uh, may I ask what's going on in here? You may ask.
- We got a positive test result.
- Yeah.
- Congratulations.
That's wonderful! - Congratulations.
Sounds like congratulations are in order? Yes.
Yes, they bloody well are.
Oh, and And it's all thanks to Nana.
- Oh, I don't know about that.
- Let's not forget.
- She's talented.
- Yeah.
- She sure is.
- Yes.
Thank you, Nana.
Thank you.
- Oh, Niels-Anders? - Yeah, Helle? Would you please tell the new receptionist I'm taking the rest of the day off? Of course.
Oh, my God.
- I love you.
- Come on.
- Okay.
- I have an idea.
A lot has happened since I last saw you.
My little business has not stopped growing for seven months.
And recently, I had to hire three new people.
And what was it you're, uh You're a designer of jackets for, um, animals? - For dogs.
- Dog jacket? - Raincoat.
- Oh.
Or you can visit our website.
- Wetwetdog.
com - Yeah.
And I've been thinking a lot about how I spend my time, and what I want to do for me with the business, and I mean I've come to the conclusion that it's not the right time - for me to have kids, um - Mm.
I'm sorry.
I know I've wasted your time.
No, no, no.
Never mind.
Don't think about that.
It's your decision, you know.
It's not But I do need to I do need to point out that the longer you wait, the the harder it'll be.
Yes, I am aware of that.
But I'm actually okay with it.
- Sorry.
Are you okay? - Yes.
I just think, if it's meant to happen, then it'll happen.
I mean, you met your husband in the jungle, and then you got pregnant right away.
And now now you have two kids? Actually, I don't.
- Uh, you definitely said you had two kids.
- I mean, I have none, but - But we talked about your kids? - No kids at all.
A boy and a girl? Hmm I'm so sorry, but would you excuse me? What's going on? Oh, fuck.
Nana? Nana! Nana, come here.
Nana! Nana! I got you.
We need to call an ambulance now! Call an ambulance! Let's check for an ectopic pregnancy, first.
Yeah, I'm on it.
Check for ectopic pregnancy, first.
Good morning.
Is it morning? Well, no.
It's It's just what people say when someone wakes up.
You were only out for about an hour.
And the baby? It's all fine.
A doctor will be here in a bit, but, yeah, it's all good.
- Must have been frightening.
- Yeah.
Hmm Oh, congratulations, my friend.
- Thanks.
- Of course.
It's still new.
You know what? I think you'll make a fantastic mum.
- May I ask who is the lucky father? - He doesn't know.
- Mm.
- It's a bit It'll be better if he didn't.
- Mm.
- If he didn't know, yeah.
I get it.
Of course.
Of course.
What are you reading? Oh, it it's not actually mine.
It It was You know, it was in the waiting room.
Um, it's actually quite It's really quite good.
It's about, um, a woman living in a mansion, who realises that after many years, that she's always been in love with the gardener, and immediately, after she tells him, right, he's drafted into the war.
And it's just a really, really, uh horrific, and tragic situation.
- Hi.
Nana? - Hi.
- Glad to see you're awake.
- Yeah.
- I'm Lars, your doctor.
- Hi.
I saw you when you when you came in.
- Have you drunk anything? - I have, yeah.
I'm fine.
Well, I suspect it was a a small blood vessel that ruptured and if you're already stressed or exhausted - There's no blood in the abdominal cavity? - No.
The fetus is very strong and healthy.
A real little fireball.
Do you have any questions, or, uh No? - So I'll get on with my day.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- I know.
My daughter, Nana Lacour, what, uh, what room is she in? Oh, uh, Nana's just down there, the right.
- Oh, thank you so much.
- Uh So, the nurse asked who your next of kin was, and I rang your mum.
- Oh, my little darling.
- Hi, Mum.
Hello, darling.
- Oh, of course, hello there, Jens-Anders.
- Yeah, hi.
Uh - And thank you for calling.
- I'm glad to be of service.
- Yeah.
- Well, I'll leave you to it.
No, it's okay, you don't have to leave.
If you want, you can stay.
Uh, I It's okay, I should be getting back to the clinic, so - Yeah.
- See you later.
- Bye now.
- Bye.
- Quite juicy, isn't he? - Jesus Christ, Mum.
I can tell he's a true fan.
Uh Why didn't you tell me you were pregnant? - I made a mess of it all.
- What? Made a mess of it all.
Are you hungry? A little.
Just have the rest of mine.
- I can't eat 'em.
- Oh, thanks.
It's just fantastic French fries sauce.
- I always forget.
- Don't they have it in Sweden? No.
They only give you ketchup.
I stopped by your concert.
- Oh? - Mm-hmm.
- I didn't see you.
- No, I didn't go in.
I just stayed outside, but I heard everything.
It was really good.
Well, thanks.
Yeah, I thought the way you sang was really beautiful.
Without all the added stuff.
Well, they couldn't afford a bassist or backing singers, so - You just have to make due.
- Yeah, uh Yeah.
- And I never really - Hmm? heard the words like that before, if that makes sense.
Thank you.
Well - I actually wrote it for you, darling.
- Oh.
I thought you've written it for that guy you moved in with.
Was it Fritz? Not at all.
That didn't last very long, you know that.
No, not for him.
Oh, I didn't know that, actually.
Well, you'd just been born and then It was those early days when all you did was lie in the cod and you cried and cried and the doctors thought you had colic.
It was hard, I tell you.
All my girlfriends were there to help me.
It was absolutely crazy.
And after, they'd all disappeared because they couldn't stand the sound of your loud crying all the time.
It was just the two of us.
And for the first time in three days, you were quiet.
So I wrote the lyrics.
It is you who makes the sky turn blue ♪ And I always think of you ♪ Without you, the day is sad and grey ♪ It is you who brings me smiles of joy ♪ I've been struck by Cupid's arrow ♪ You're my greatest love ♪ Would you like some tea? Darling, don't you want Sweetie, what's wrong? - I think I'm just really tired.
- Yeah.
I know.
I know.
There, there.
It's hard.
- Oh.
- I don't know why I'm so tired.
I know.
That's just how it is, darling.
I'm afraid that's just how it is.
Your little body is working very hard, okay? - Yeah.
- Yes.
There, there, there.
Well, I think in regards to that I don't know what to call it.
If it's something with, uh - Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Nana.
Are you okay? Yeah.
I'm okay.
Helle, could we have a quick chat? It'll only take a minute.
Let me get this straight.
You So you Well, I, um, took the sperm straw with his numbers on, and I put the Well, I guess the others must've fallen out.
Then I picked them up, and I must've put them back in the wrong place.
- And then you inseminated yourself? - Yeah.
- Jesus Christ.
- Yeah.
Want some water? Yes, I think so.
- There you go.
- Thanks.
Um I think we should keep this to ourselves, like I mean, I don't, uh, want to involve the police just now.
And the fact is, nothing happened.
And no one has been seriously affected.
But what about Simone? Yeah, right.
I will Yeah.
I will call her.
Actually, I'd like to be the one who will talk to her.
And it would be great if you could re-hire her.
Of course.
Uh, yes, I I'll need to talk to Jannick, but, um, yes, I will.
And you, what am I gonna do? Oh, Soren? - Hi.
- Hi.
I've been fired.
It's, uh, kind of long a story I don't think I need any more of your stories.
Is it just Simone who thinks that I'm the father of your child, or did you tell anyone else? - It would be useful to know.
- No, I didn't tell anyone that.
I swear.
It's not It's fucking wrecked.
It's all It's all a mess.
But the mess is yours.
I don't really know what to say, Soren.
Go away, Nana.
- I talked to Helle.
- I don't care.
Go away.
I told her everything.
I told her.
It doesn't matter now.
It's too late.
Can you please Can you please just open the door? Open the door.
I've never been so humiliated.
And you knew all the time.
- Yeah.
- I'm sorry! I don't care.
I don't know what to say.
It was just totally stupid and insane and fucking idiotic and - And what? - It It was really awful and I just I completely understand if you can't forgive me, but could you Could you at least just try? I honestly don't know what I'd do without you.
- You're totally fucked up.
- Yeah, you're right.
- And a huge liar.
- I know.
But I'm not gonna do that anymore.
Helle also apologises, and Yeah, you've got your job back, if you want.
- Have you been fired, or? - Yeah, very much fired.
Very fired.
- Cool.
- Thanks.
- Do you want a coffee? - Yes, please, yeah.
I don't have any milk.
Oh, that's fine.
I'll take it black.
Like my conscience.
Too soon.
- Do you have the keys? - Yes.
Are we like burglars now? - No.
No, no, no.
- No, no, no.
Then why are we whispering? Because it's more fun.
Okay, let's go.
- Like this? - That's it.
Okay, let's have a look.
It looks like slime.
Yes, a kind of slime that helps the scanner work better.
Can you press the green button? The one on the right? - Wow, it's beating so quickly.
- Yeah.
So, Bastian, give Nana the present now.
What have we here? - Is it for me? - No, it's for the baby.
It's for the baby? Well, Bastian, it's really mega ace.
- With glittered eyes and everything.
- And glittered claws.
It was his own idea.
You've done a good job there.
So will you.
But you have to tell him.
He's going to absolutely hate me.
Yeah, but if he hates you, he hates you.
And you'll go from there.
What would I say to him? I think I'd start with the truth.
Everybody has a secret ♪ Something we don't share ♪ But keep to ourselves ♪ But, darling, If I have to tell the truth ♪ You're the most beautiful thing I know ♪ I think that's what you call love ♪ It is you who makes the sky turn blue ♪ And I always think of you ♪ Without you, the day is sad and grey ♪ It is you who brings me smiles of joy ♪ I've been struck by Cupid's arrow ♪ You're my greatest love ♪ In forever ♪ Life can bring rain and sun ♪ But everything I need ♪ Is a little sign ♪ To feel that you are right by my side ♪ You are the best thing I know ♪ I think that's what you call love ♪ It is you who makes the sky turn blue ♪ And I always think of you ♪ Without you, the day is sad and grey ♪ It is you who brings me smiles of joy ♪ I've been struck by Cupid's arrow ♪ You're my greatest love ♪ In forever ♪
