When you talk to Wanda, tell her Janine wants to compare notes on wardrobe.
I want Wanda to wear that black body-hugging minidress with those black fishnet stock Vinnie, I'll get the tickets.
Thanks for dropping the money off, but I'm swamped now.
Really busy.
Dr.
howser, your students await.
Good morning, Dr.
howser.
Howser, you Wow.
What i mean, what are you i can't Shall we, nurses? Stay right here.
I'll bring you some oxygen.
Now what's the code call for a fire? Dr.
firestone.
Dr.
firestone.
Fire exits are at the end of the hall.
Extinguishers are located in cabinets along the wall.
We'll be in pathology this morning.
We'll look at some biopsy slides, then we'll answer questions afterwards, o.
K.
? Right this way.
Eew.
Oh.
Those sloppy pathologists.
Always leaving organs laying around.
Ohh.
Is she o.
K.
? Are you all right, m-miss Her name's Michele.
Michele.
It's 8:30.
Time to hop in the bathtub.
Do I have to? O.
K.
O.
K.
I'm going.
Good night, doogie.
Good night.
Thanks for helping her with her homework, doogie.
No problem.
Wanda, Janine wants to know what you're wearing to Monte Carlo night on Saturday.
Did you hear me? What? Hello.
Hi, miss Phillips.
Oh, my gosh, that's this weekend.
Yeah, I've got a tent.
Well, when do we leave? Saturday morning at 6:00? And return? No, that's o.
K.
Yeah, we'll be there.
Thanks.
Bye-bye.
I can forget about Saturday, huh? I'm sorry, doogie.
Maggie's got this mother-daughter camp-out this weekend.
You're mad, aren't you? A little.
We haven't been out in a month.
Look, doogie, things have changed since my mom died.
There are things I've got to take care of.
But we should get out.
That's important, too.
We will.
Just bear with me a little while.
I'm trying.
I just lately have been feeling like Vinnie and Janine's chauffeur.
I'm tired of going out alone.
Well, then, I'll understand if you decide to take somebody else.
You will? Just promise you'll take somebody ugly.
Who would I take out, anyway? Yes.
And another.
Got it! And the crowd goes wild.
I can't pull Wanda out of this, vin.
It's frustrating.
Wanda and Janine barely see each other these days, and they're best friends.
She even said i could go out with someone else on Saturday if I wanted to.
She what? I don't even know who I'd take out, anyway.
You don't know who to take? You were surrounded by five bodacious, traffic-stopping student nurses this morning.
Mixing personal and professional is not a good idea.
So don't mix.
Fire the prettiest one and take her to monte Carlo night.
I'd feel awkward taking one out.
I'm their teacher and all.
You got to be kidding.
Where are you going? I'm turning you in to the wimp police.
Your girlfriend says go ahead, and you got access to a bevy of beauties.
Get on your palomino, ride over, and cut one from the herd.
As a teacher, it's important to maintain a professional distance.
Head 'em up! Move 'em out! Yeah! How is a coronary artery bypass performed? Michele.
By a vein graft between the aorta and the coronary artery beyond the obstruction.
Very good.
Which heart valves are most commonly replaced in open-heart surgery? Michele.
II don't know.
I didn't raise my hand.
Oh.
That's right.
Janet? Um, the aortic and the mitral valves.
Great.
That'll be it for today.
I'll look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
I mean, the collective you.
Each and every one of you, um, as a group.
Dismissed.
Michele.
I've been real impressed with how much you've improved in the last two sessions.
Well, we've only had two sessions.
Right.
Well, you're well on your way, then.
Part of being a good nurse is being able to relax and enjoy less stressful activities.
Are you going to monte Carlo night? Yes, I am.
Alone.
So am I.
What a coincidence.
We'll be there simultaneously, alone.
Well I don't know.
Maybe we could We could go together.
Exactly.
I think I should tell you this.
I've been going with someone for a while now, and due to other circumstances, she can't go.
But she said it would be o.
K.
If I went with someone else.
This won't be a date.
Don't get the wrong impression.
Oh, right.
I assume when we get there, we'll be free to roam around.
Right.
It won't be a together together kind of thing.
It won't be a A date.
No.
No.
More like More like a carpool.
That's it.
A carpool.
Yeah, we'd be Saving energy.
A conservation kind of thing.
Right.
Not a date.
No.
No, definitely not.
No.
Bye.

You'll never know the difference.
We didn't win anything, but we had a good time.
That's what counts.
I would have loved that toaster.
Well, Dr.
howser, thanks for, um, carpooling with me.
Anytime.
We carpool well together.
It it would be wrong right now.
O.
K.
I understand.
Well, I had a great time.

I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
Can you check on those pizzas, please? Thanks.
Think he's sporting enough artificial turf on his head? There's a Santa Ana wind coming tomorrow.
He'll need a chin strap.
Looks like a wharf rat died up there.
The babysitter's only good till 10:00.
Aren't we going to the pier? Maybe I should just take a cab home.
Are you kidding? No, it's o.
K.
I'll be all right.
I'll drive you home.
Here's for the pizza.
Bye.
Thanks, Tina.
Good night.
Good night.
Good night.
You know, it just struck me.
Babysitters are the backbone of the popcorn industry.
They sit for your first kid Bang Addicted for life.
Yeah? Are we o.
K.
? Yeah.
What's going on with us? It's not us.
It's me.
I know I've been no fun to be around.
No.
A lot has happened.
You'll feel better.
No, I don't think so.
It's like I don't feel anything anymore.
Ever since my mom died, I have no feelings about having fun or being affectionate or anything.
I don't know what to say.
I don't think we should see each other anymore.
Lately the only time i really feel good is when I'm in this house with my family.
I'm sorry, doogie.
O.
K.
I want to say let's not do this, try to work at making things better.
You're a wonderful boyfriend.
You're one of the most important people in my life.
You taught me so Don't.
I know all that.
I love you.
I love you, too.
I hate this.
I know.
You know, Janine said Michele's really nice.
Doogie.
Doogie, guess what.
I did great with the blood-taking today.
I was scared because the first guy had this really fat arm.
But I just remembered your advice, and it worked like a charm.
Terrific.
That's That's really great.
Well, I I just wanted to thank you again, so That's it, I guess.
Michele.
I have some news, too.
It's not quite as exciting.
Uh My girlfriend and I decided to stop seeing each other a few days ago.
I'm sorry.
I'm all right with it.
She thought it would be best.
I guess I do, too.
So So I was wondering if you wanted to go out with me sometime.
A real date? Yeah.
Yeah.
Yeah, i think I would.
Excellent.
What a fabulous last scene.
And those classic lines "we'll always have Paris.
" Here's lookin' at you, kid.
That was a great choice tonight, doogie.
I bet I've seen casablanca25 times, and you know what? I could see it another 50.
Why don't we go back next week? They're showing the Maltese falcon.
I'd have come back to you sooner or later.
From the very first instant I saw you, I knew.
If you get a good break, you'll be out of tehachapi in 20 years.
I hope they don't hang you, precious, by your sweet neck.
This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
A six-letter word for romance.
Hickey.
It's romantic to me.
How'd it go with Michele? You two play a little tonsil hockey? Vincent, a gentleman never kisses and tells.
So, how did it go? It was great.
We saw a movie, and things just got later than I thought.
Things? What kind of things? Unspeakable things? Things you did in the dark? Things you'd like to? None of those things.
We just saw casablanca, and I drove her home.
No, no.
I'm not buying this cover-up.
You forget, I'm psychic.
I'm sensing some very heavy vibes.
Oh.
Wait.
Uh-huh.
I'm getting a vision.
I see the two of you going to see another bogart classic.
Uh The Maltese falcon, perhaps.
Actually, we were thinking about seeing that.
Wait.
Wait.
There's more.
I can see the two of you meeting in the hospital cafeteria at 2:00.
No, no Tomorrow.
Sharing a frozen yogurt, perhaps.
This woman thinks of you as something special.
Uh-huh.
I see this as the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Get out of here.
Now don't cross me.
I'm psychic.
See you, Dr.
h.
Good night, Vincent.
So You o.
K.
? Yeah, I'm o.
K.
Michele's really nice and all, but A couple of times tonight I caught myself thinking about Wanda.
Doogie, you never forget your first love.
You'll be thinking about Wanda for the rest of your life.
So it's all right to feel happy and sad at the same time? Good night, son.
Hi, doogie, it's Michele.
I just wanted to thank you for a great evening.
I can't wait to see the Maltese falcon.
Can you meet me in the cafeteria at 4:00 tomorrow? Maybe we can share a frozen yogurt.
