ER s09e16 Episode Script

A Thousand Cranes

Previously on E.
- Well, then where's my brother? - They found his plane? - Intact.
- Intact.
Tied down in a field outside of Sault Sainte Marie.
He's my son.
How can I wait? Welcome to the outside of the disease.
I don't want Sean to suffer anymore.
I don't wanna die.
Then you should fight.
With everything you have.
- What do you want? - I want you to stop being so afraid.
- I'm not afraid.
- I'm want us to stop being so careful.
- I'm just- - I wanna marry you! What? I wish the sun would rise already.
This graveyard shift's going forever.
You okay? I love you too, Carter, but it's over.
I'm gonna ask her tonight.
You’re going to propose? Actually, I already did, but badly.
- She said no? - She didn't say anything.
But this time I'm gonna do it right.
That is a nice rock.
That was my great-grandmother's.
Great-grandfather gave it to her the day he left for the Army.
I don't think she'll mind that it's secondhand.
You guys want something from Magoo's? My treat.
- No, thanks.
- No, I'm all right.
- Hey, Luka.
- Hey.
You dispo Mr.
Lindsey? - They took him up to Cards.
- He'll be all right.
- He's bounced back before.
- Actually, he died.
- Way to start the day, huh? - Yeah.
Can I buy you some breakfast? Okay.
So, what's that you’re reading? The workplace sensitivity manual.
Weaver wants me to learn it.
- What's-? What's "schmuck"? - Schmuck? It's one of the inappropriate words.
"Schmuck," "puts" - - No, I think you mean "putz.
" - Putz.
" Is that a tree? Hello? Anybody here? Hello? Oh, my God.
Gray matter.
No pulse.
We should get the police.
Oh, my God.
Oh, God.
GSW to the head.
Exit wound through the spine.
They’re gone.
Oh, my God.
She's breathing.
Go get help.
Do you remember the Rileys? You guys stayed with them when you were about 10 or so.
Yeah, they had a cabin up by Mount Lutsen.
Eric used to call Sonia "Gammy.
” - Grammy.
- Grammy.
Maybe he went there.
They were really good with you when things were bad.
They- They took you fishing.
- Remember? - Yeah, in Grand Rapids.
- At Grand Rapids.
- I cut my finger.
Yeah, with a hook.
Eric caught this great, big old smelly fish.
He acted like he found gold, for God's sakes.
- He'll be okay, Mom.
- I know.
I should pack.
- Is that John? - No.
It's work, but guess what.
He asked me to marry him.
Really? Well, he didn't really mean it.
I mean, it was- We were on the roof it was freezing, there was a helicopter flying around, and he was kind of shouting it at me.
It's every girl's dream, right? - What'd you say? - Nothing.
Really, because, you know, he didn't mean it.
It just- It was just something that happened.
I don't know.
Hi, it's Abby.
What? Oh, my God.
Was anybody there? No, from the ER.
I'll be right in.
- What's the matter? - I- I have to go.
But come by the hospital later, and I'll give you a ride to the bus station.
Or you could stay a few more days.
No, I- I have to get back to work.
Be here waiting in case he shows up.
What if he shows up in Minnesota? You’re right.
Nothing confirmed.
Looks like you got multiple shooters on the loose.
- She's dropping her sats.
- Keep those people away from the building.
Can we talk to her now in case she can't later? Setting up for multiple traumas.
How many? - One.
- Three were pronounced on the scene.
- Luka, let me take this.
- It's okay, I got it.
Officer, make sure these cars don't block that entrance.
- Breathe for us, Trina.
- Tracheal shift.
Hold up.
Her lung is down.
- Sats, only 88.
- Miss, can you describe who did this? - Decreased on the right.
- Needle her.
- Want me to do it? - No, 18 gauge.
How many were there? You' re gonna get your ID as soon as she's stable, I promise.
She's not moving air.
No pulse.
Try the other side.
- No, pull the dressing off.
- What? The dressing on the chest wound, pull it off.
- Okay, pulse is stronger.
- Good chest excursions.
All right, let's get her inside.
Luka? Just need a minute.
Lewis, patron saint of lost causes.
- GSW to head and chest.
- Tension pneumo.
One's clear.
You all right? Yeah.
I'm a little nauseous.
It takes me a couple days to get back up to terminal.
- What's going on? - There was a shooting across the street.
- Anybody you know? - No, but still.
- Kind of scary when it happens so close.
- Yeah.
So I heard you' re getting released today.
My next round of chemotherapy's in about two days, so I thought I'd come by, say so long.
- How's your mom doing? - You mean is she still pissed at you? No, I didn't mean exactly that, but - She's still pissed at you.
- Good to know.
She's upstairs with the "doc.
" Does she know you' re here? I kind of snuck off.
I actually might need one of those basins.
I think you need some IV Compazine.
- That sounds good.
- All right.
I'll go tell your mom you' re here.
Will you watch him for a minute? I'm not a child.
Yeah, Marky! Yeah, Marky! - Yeah! Oh, yeah! - Come on, man.
Come on.
- I got this corner ball.
- Let's go.
Come on.
- Let's go.
- What you trying to do? - What you doing, man? - It's our ball.
Back up! Hey, back up! Hey, man, it's all right.
We got this.
- I'm all right.
Come on.
- David.
- Let's go.
- Come on.
It's game point anyway.
- Let's get these clowns out of here.
- Play ball! Let's do it.
Come on, come on.
Yo, watch it, bitch! It's a man's game.
Come on, man.
What, you wanna go? Forget about it.
We won.
Let's get some breakfast.
Come on.
- Next week.
- That's what I thought.
- I thought you were on later.
- I heard what happened.
- I thought we might need help.
- Actually, we only got the one.
Three went straight to the morgue.
- Sorry I didn't come by last night.
- It's okay.
Maggie and I played Scrabble.
I got a 75-point word.
- Really? - "Cyanotic.
" She challenged it.
found brutally murdered early this morning inside of this establishment.
Doc Magoo's a diner frequented by staff and visitors of County General Hospital.
The crime was committed prior to opening as the staff was preparing for a day of serving the usual sandwiches and sodas.
What got served instead was a cold-blooded robbery-homicide in which four people were murdered execution-style.
- One of them's still alive.
- Police are trying to identify suspects.
- More on the story later.
- Any word on Eric? I don't expect any.
It's like a bear hibernating.
He won't come out till spring.
Hey, what do you say we go out tonight? Sushi.
Just you and me.
- Maggie can fend for herself.
- Told her I'd drive her to the bus station.
- She's leaving? - Yep.
- Is that a good thing? - I don't know.
It was kind of nice having a roommate.
Sushi? I hope you have a better plan than that.
It's all about misdirection.
I don't wanna show my hand too early.
Well, the two of you have had enough misdirection.
Trust me, show your hand.
Move your toes, Trina.
- O-neg's here.
- Put it right on the infuser.
Trina, do you remember anything? They started shooting.
They just started shooting.
Threading the catheter.
Wire back.
- What'd she say? - Hook me up.
- Ten blade.
- Trina, how many of them were there? Two, in an SUV.
I saw them drive up.
- Another 50 of fent.
- Knife back.
- Curved Kelly.
- I might have seen them getting away.
Anything more specific? It was a 4x4, gold or tan maybe.
It looked pretty new.
Anything about the men? Height? Weight? - What they were wearing? - It was far away.
Into pleural space.
Chen? OpSite and Polysporin.
Tube's in.
Hook up the Thora-Seal.
Any detail would help us.
Sats are back up, 91.
- Were they Latinos? Black guys? - I don't know.
It happened so fast.
Let's page Corday.
Hey, Trina, you did really good.
Rest up now, okay? For us to get to work here, we need a real description.
I saw one of them.
I think he was black.
Driver, get out nice and calm.
Face the vehicle.
- Welcome to the ' hood.
- Passenger, come around to this side.
Face the vehicle.
Put your hands up on the roof.
Grab the roof.
Hey, man, take it easy.
License and registration's in the glove.
- Hey, what are we being stopped for? - Easy.
Where'd you get money for a ride like this? We' re doctors at County.
- Where you headed in a hurry? - Y'all can't just do this.
Just be quiet.
I see you guys brought a lot of pals.
What's the deal? - Four people shot this morning in a diner.
- What diner? We were just up at the Sedgwick Y in a pickup game.
Call the gym manager.
Why don't you search the car and let us get the hell out of here? All right, go ahead.
See, that's my boss right now.
Somebody's very sick.
Look, we' re late for our shift.
Dealers got shifts now, huh? - We are doctors, damn it.
- Relax, punk.
No, wait a minute, I can explain that.
I can explain! Get on the ground right now, or I'll put a bullet in your damn head.
Cuff them.
You belong to the Y? I play ball there twice a week.
Who do you play with? I don't remember their names.
Some live up the street from Greg.
- You show proof to the arresting officers? - Yeah, they took my ID.
I told the arresting officer my ID was in the glove.
Did you ever hear of a place called Magoo's? I work right across the street.
We work right across the street from it.
Did you ever own a firearm? I already told you no.
No, I've never owned a firearm.
Why are you hassling me? Just call County.
- Where'd you say you were? - You know, I told you where I was.
- What kind of a doctor are you? - I'm a med- I'm a med student.
I'm a med student.
What difference does that make? - What kind of doctor are you? - I told you what I am.
Look, we brought you in because you match the ID.
Because I match the ID.
What? Young, black and handsome? That's- No, that's ridiculous.
I'll send them over immediately.
- Do we have photo IDs down here? - Yeah, bottom shelf.
Messenger off personnel face sheets for Pratt and Gallant to Area Seven Headquarters.
- Really? Why? - Just do it.
Susan, Sean Simmons is being discharged to home hospice care.
- I know, the cancer's back.
- While he's here waiting the mother has asked that you keep your distance.
- What? - She doesn't want you interacting with her son.
What does Sean say? She's a grieving mother.
I think we need to respect her wishes.
Look, we should get their names or something.
How else are we gonna file a complaint against them? Why don't you just be quiet? Story checked out at the Y.
County confirmed you' re employed there.
It's not like we didn't tell you guys that.
You can pick up your stuff at the front desk.
Have a nice day.
Is her crit stable? Holding at 29 with two units in.
Luka, if you wanna take it easy for a while we can keep you out of the trauma rooms assign you to non-critical-care cases.
If you need me anywhere, Kerry, you need me in here.
We all have times where we could use a little less stress.
I'm fine.
There's nothing wrong with admitting that you need some help.
I don't.
Even so, I've scheduled a meeting with Dr.
Meyers up on seven.
It's a formality.
Unless you wanna make it something more.
But it's mandatory.
You shouldn't have let them search the car.
That's what you do when you' re innocent.
I don't usually ride around with a bloody shirt.
- You guys hear what happened? - I thought none of our people got hurt.
Jing-Mei was first on the scene.
- Is she okay? - A little freaked.
I don't get it, man, how you could just roll over.
- That's the way it works sometimes.
- Yeah, if you let it.
- What are you gonna do, file a lawsuit? - That's one way to fight it.
- There is no fighting it.
- You know, I don't buy that.
Carter wants the output on Bed 4 before he leaves.
Look, we could be perfect, you know, like Gandhi.
But as soon as the crap goes down, we'll be the first ones laid out with a gun to our head.
Now, where I grew up, you see it every day.
And if it happens to you enough, you get the message.
You are not equal.
You are not a full citizen.
You are first, last and, above all, one thing and one thing only: A suspect.
You sure you wanna wait out here? Yeah, there's too many sick people in there.
- Thanks.
- You' re welcome.
Cold enough for you? My mom went ahead to help set up stuff for the home hospice team.
- Then she'll be coming to pick me up.
- I think you' re doing the right thing.
I think it doesn't matter what you think.
I'm sorry.
I don't know why I'm so pissed at you.
Guess it all just feels so much more real now.
I keep daydreaming about the stuff that I wanted to do.
Get really drunk at a college party.
Go windsurfing.
Get married and have kids.
Stupid stuff like that.
It's not stupid.
Even after I got really sick I kept talking myself into believing that I had more time.
At least enough to do some of those things.
Sean Simmons? You know what? Hold on a second.
Sean, I can't get you into college, and windsurfing's nuts.
But you know what? Come on, let's get out of here.
- For real? - Yeah, come on.
Not unless you have someplace else to go.
- I'm supposed to get him home.
- Yeah, could you call his mom for us? - Tell her we went on a date.
- I'll have him back by curfew.
Say maybe.
Listen, I got ahold of Sonia Riley and I told her to call you here if she hears from Eric.
I'll keep my eye open for messages.
Can you get this banana bag to that guy? My leg-splint girl's screaming.
The Soupbox for lunch? Oh, you' re busy.
We could go to that place across the street.
- That's not really a good idea today.
- Abby.
Triage needs extra bodies.
They got 20 kids from Kelton Elementary with vomiting and diarrhea.
I'll be there in five minutes.
Abby, it's okay.
I can get to the bus station by myself.
No, I'll take you.
I'll take you.
Levine, what's your problem? I just got drunk at a Valentine's Day party.
- Five days ago.
- Yeah, it was a blowout.
- I wanted to tell you- - Hey.
Why did you take that out? It was itchy.
- Altered mental status.
- Abby, send up admit labs two sets of blood cultures, and grab an LP tray.
- Meningitis? - Let's find out.
- I'm sorry.
- It's okay, I'll call you when I get home.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Nurses shortage, you know.
Working in the ER can be a very inconvenient job sometimes.
I'm sorry, John.
I just wanted Eric to come home so bad so that I could be with my family just for a second.
Abby and I were getting along so well.
You should stay longer.
- You know, she would love it.
- I'm sorry.
Thank you, John.
I can catch a cab out here, right? I'm off in a couple of minutes.
I'll drive you.
- Really? - Yeah.
So, what brings you here? Dr.
She told me to come.
Well, why do you suppose she wanted us to meet? - You tell me.
- Well, that's not quite how it works.
Hey, you' re a doctor.
Someone comes to me with a problem, I tell them how to fix it, so - Let's start with you telling me- - My problem? What's on your mind? My family died during the war in Croatia.
So I came to America.
I had a relationship with someone I cared about, which I then ruined.
So I started to look for the answers in the wrong places.
You know, like sex, drinking, living fast.
I killed a patient I should have saved, then I almost killed a medical student in a car crash, so- Woke up one morning and everything I thought I had was gone.
Gone or broken.
So, what do you have for that? Well, Dr.
Kovac, it's not something that I can really- Yeah, that's what I thought.
I should get back to work.
Tell Weaver I showed up.
Further complicating the commute, a high-speed chase is underway snarling a two-mile stretch of the I-40.
Police are in pursuit of a tan SUV suspected of being connected to the grisly murders of three people early this morning in a coffee shop off South Foundry.
- A fourth victim - Do they consider the collateral damage of a pursuit like that? They' re hoping they kill them, avoid the wasted time and money of due process.
They might have the wrong suspects.
Last time I checked, the police were still on our side.
- Well, what exactly is our side? - Tell her what happened.
They laid us out on the sidewalk, they took us in, and they interrogated us.
- That's terrible.
- The real problem is you guys are guilty.
- Guilty of what? - DWB.
Driving while black.
Just forget it.
The police play the odds just like us.
They look for horses, not zebras.
Tell me you don't think that's the same thing.
Look, it's about percentages.
Last time I flew to London they pulled two Arab men out of line for a security check.
I hate to admit it, it made me feel more secure.
You think they'd pull over two Arabs driving through Highland Park? No, because terrorist acts in Highland Park aren't high on the list of concerns.
But violent crime by African-Americans certainly is.
Like I said, we should drop it.
So you really believe racial profiling is a legitimate law-enforcement tool? A lot of people do.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I don't know whose day's been worse, yours or mine.
- You okay? - Yeah.
You? I never thought I'd see something like that.
It's different when they roll in on a gurney.
Yeah, but you stepped up.
That's all that counts.
I did my job.
At least we saved one of them.
- So I heard she gave an ID.
- Partial one.
I filled in some details.
What, you saw the guys? A glimpse as they drove off.
- They were black, huh? - I think so.
You think so? Well, it was quick, you know? But- And I only saw one of them.
So that's why the cops are picking up brothers all over town.
I told them what I saw.
What you saw, or what you thought you saw? I was trying to help, Greg.
Can't you see you fed right into what they always wanna jump to? Look, I'm really sorry for what happened to you, but that's on the cops, not me.
It's all part of the same thing.
What are you talking about? - I don't know.
- So, what, now I'm a racist? It's just hard not to feel that everybody is when you' re lying in the street with a cop's foot to the back of your neck.
I've never seen it like this.
It's okay, there will be a later bus.
That's not your music, that's Abby's.
She always liked that noise.
I'm getting used to it.
There's an accident up ahead.
Sit tight, we'll keep you posted.
- Thank- Thank you.
- Thanks.
- Well - Thank you for this, John.
- I know it's a huge inconvenience.
- It's no problem.
I'm sorry for getting so upset.
I hate being so pathetic.
Just the idea of going home alone and waiting - Eric will turn up.
- Yeah.
Yeah, but I worry about both of them.
Abby's good.
You know, we' re both good.
You don't have to worry about that.
She told me.
She told me you might get married.
- Is that what she said? - No, she told me you proposed.
I know she's work, it runs in the family, but she's so worth it.
I spend 23 hours a day wondering whether we' re wrong for each other.
Wondering whether we've got the energy that we need to get through everything that we seem to get into.
Whether the baggage we both bring would sink a small ship.
But in the 24th hour, I realize I've been thinking about her for 23 hours.
And I come back to, there's something about her that I can't stay away from.
Something about her that makes me wanna love her.
Julia, my sister, read this story about a little Japanese girl who had cancer.
And she tried to make a thousand paper cranes because she thought if she did, it would make her wish come true.
- What was her wish? - To get better.
So how many paper cuts do you have? A lot.
But my wish is kind of different.
What is it? It's hard to explain.
I kiss pretty good for a dead kid, huh? Not bad at all.
Cop wounded in a multi-car collision.
BP, 124/68, pulse, 96, good sats.
Jing-Mei, take him in.
I'll wait on the next.
- Find the guys? - The guys opened fire.
- We have a bunch of cops hurt.
- Mitch Palnick, 41-year-old officer.
MVA with passenger-space intrusion.
- Can't breathe.
- Hey, nice to see you again.
- You know him? - He wears Florsheims, rubber-soled.
- Isn't that right? - Correct.
He's got a couple of fractured ribs, maybe his sternum too.
Set up for a chest tube.
Trauma panel, type and cross four units.
- He could've bagged his spleen.
- Look, I'll get the other one.
- We need you here.
- We'll be there.
- Now, Gallant.
- It's cool.
It's not cool.
Hurry the hell up.
- Come on, let's go.
- You've got two doctors.
That's enough.
We've got a critical patient who needs rapid assessment and prompt treatment.
What's the matter? Forget what happened earlier and do your job.
- I- I can't help that guy.
- This is what we do, all right? Now, get your ass in there.
Come on.
Come on.
John, it's beautiful.
Absolutely beautiful.
Marriage can be a great thing.
- Can be.
- Yeah.
What the hell do I know? Mine failed.
For many reasons.
You sure as hell don't want my advice.
But I would think that kind of commitment to somebody, you have to be ready for anything.
Or nothing.
You never know what's gonna happen.
Or you do.
You mean drinking? I drank, I smoked when I was younger.
It took having a baby to make me stop.
Smoking, at least.
I always went back to the drinking.
Maybe Abby will be stronger.
Have you two talked about this? About having kids? I know that she worries about passing on the disease.
She and Richard never communicated ever, I don't think.
Really? I think they loved each other at first.
But he had all these expectations that she never realized.
He didn't understand her.
Well, I'm not walking into this blind.
No, no, no, I don't think you are.
I just don't want Yes? I I just don't want you to wanna fix her.
Abby doesn't need to be fixed.
- Or heal her or change her.
- I love her.
I just don't want you to be waiting for her to change.
- I'm not.
- She's an amazing person.
- I know who she is.
- She's an amazing person with certain weaknesses.
And you'd be lucky to have her even with those weaknesses.
But you have to love her even if she never changes anything.
- Pressure's only 85.
- Put two units on the rapid infuser.
- I don't want them.
- You don't get to choose your doctors.
Like we don't get to choose our patients.
- No evidence of intra-abdominal bleeding.
- Twelve-lead.
- Prepping the chest.
- ST depression.
- Could be ischemia from hypotension.
- What about tamponade? No, that gives you low-voltage QRS.
We need to put a tube in your chest to expand the lung.
Looks like a damn garden hose.
- There'll be some burning with the local.
- We were just doing our job, okay? So let us do ours.
Gallant, there's no pericardial effusion.
Start secondary survey.
- HemoCue's 14.
- Hold the transfusion.
No, no, no, prime the infuser.
Weaver, I don't think he needs a chest tube.
It takes time for your crit to drop.
Look, LV wall motion abnormality.
He's got a cardiac contusion.
That's not as bad, right? - Start dopamine at 10 mics per kilo.
- Go.
X- ray's back.
- I'll mix up some lido in case of ectopy.
- I don't see a collapsed lung.
Setting up cardiac enzymes Q six hours.
- We'll bring you in when the docs finish.
- Good call.
So this must be a really scary part for you, huh? What? Well, all the white folks left.
Now it's just you and a couple of niggas with knives.
Sorry I'm late.
- Why did you make me wait outside? - Surprise.
- It's February in Chicago.
- I know.
It makes you feel alive, doesn't it? The visiting nurse waited an hour, and then she had to go.
- It's my fault, Mrs.
- No, it's not.
I wanted a hot dog.
Sean, you should see your room.
They brought a bed with a remote.
No way.
I didn't mean to worry you, I just wanted to make it easier for Sean.
- Easier? - He wasn't ready to come home yet.
Mom, Sean wants to talk to you.
Well, he's home now.
Good night.
Sean wants to know if she could wait a minute, because - So you' re Julia? - Yeah, you' re Susan.
Yeah, I work at the hospital.
I know.
Sean said you were the only doctor he ever met who was like a friend.
And that you were hot.
BP's up to 112/78 on dopamine.
- We need some more morphine.
- Yeah, push another four mgs.
How you doing, Mitch? Your partner has an elevation of his cardiac enzymes indicating a bruised heart.
It's the equivalent of a small heart attack.
- Do you smoke? - Yeah.
- I hear it's bad for you.
- Yeah, thanks for the advice.
No, you should be thanking this brother.
They profiled you as a collapsed lung.
But he kept an open mind, saved you from surgery that you don't need.
- Yeah.
- Know what? That's not gonna cut it.
I think an apology's in order.
You think I'm gonna apologize to you? - No, to him.
- Hey, Pratt, forget about it.
I didn't do anything wrong.
There's nothing on your record.
You don't look like you're hurt.
You're here now.
- Lucky for you.
- And what is your damage? You know, there were three people butchered outside your hospital.
We were doing what we were supposed to- You need cops like me to catch animals like that.
"Sorry" would've been a whole lot easier.
- You gonna tell me what this is about? - I thought we both deserved a break.
Especially after a day like today.
Feels more like a month.
But what's it really all about? So you think this is a keeper? - The restaurant? - Us.
You and me.
Are you okay? I've spent a long time looking for a relationship that I thought would stick.
Sometimes it was the wrong person.
Sometimes I guess I wasn't ready.
Or in the right place.
But I think I am now.
I really think I am now.
Are you? - John- - Because I really want this to stick.
Me too.
I know that we've had a rough time and that there's still a lot of stuff that we have to get through.
But I think we' re doing okay.
You know, I think that we' re growing.
We' re changing.
Do you? I don't know if people ever really change.
But I- I know what you mean.
You do? I think I do.
Well, let's see what's for dessert.
That's it? You bought out this whole place just for that? That and the chocolate soufflé.
Check this out.
Who knew it'd be so much fun, huh? Oh, here.
It's for you.
Open it later.
Sometimes if I think about what comes next, it helps.
Maybe afterwards I'll know.
I'll know what it's all about.
What it all means, if it means anything.
You'll know before any of us.
That sucks.
It does.
I want you to know what you did for me, Susan.
It's mutual.
I want you to know.
I know, Sean.
I know.
How's Officer Palnick doing? No cardiac ectopy on the lido drip.
Pulse ox, 99 on two liters.
That was good, what you did in there.
But never make me ask you twice again, okay? Yes, ma'am.
A couple of cops got real hurt trying to bring in those guys that killed those people.
And that's why Mitch is here, because he won't let scum like that get away.
Still, maybe we overstepped this morning.
I think we did.
But thanks for fixing up my partner.
They'll be moving him soon.
What was that about? Almost sounded like an apology.
- One love, Gallant.
- Yep.
Better day tomorrow than we had today.
- Luka, how'd it go upstairs? - Great.
I feel a lot better.
- Hey.
- Hey.
It's so quiet now, you know? You'd hardly know anything happened there.
- Yeah, except the police tape.
- Yeah.
You did good today.
Probably saved that woman's life.
Well, at least there's that.
Headed to the El? No.
I forgot something inside.
- Good night.
- Yeah, good night.
You know, ever since I was a kid, I've always acted like it doesn't bother me.
But you know something? It bothers me.
Well, at least they caught the guys.
Let's get out of here.
Do you want tea? Carter? - Hello.
- Hello, Abby? Mom.
Are you there already? No.
No, I'm not.
We' re delayed here in Tomah.
The roads are snowed in.
Tomah, Wisconsin? Abby, I- I know I was in the way, and I'm sorry.
I - I never wanna be a burden.
- Mom, you are not a burden.
I just wish Eric would've come back.
I know.
We could've all been together just for one little minute.
I love you both so much.
Sometimes I don't know what to do with it.
- I love you too.
- I'll call you in a few days.
Call me tomorrow.
- Get home safe.
- Bye.
Who was that? Maggie.
What did she want? She wanted to thank you for the ride.
What kind of tea do you want? Whatever you' re having.
