R.
Your East Coast squeeze is here.
She's kind of a looker in an interstate off-ramp kind of way.
I'm here now, baby.
- Bobby hit me.
- What? Broke a rib.
I'm sorry, I didn't know, but you didn't say anything.
- Why didn't you go to the police? - He is the police.
- A compass? - It seems we always find each other.
- Can we talk? - What? I'm pregnant.
E.
R.
112x11 "IF NOT NOW" What are you doing? Well, Christmas was two weeks ago.
I figured it's time to put it away.
Leave it.
I like it.
You wanna be one of those people dragging some dead brown tree out into the street in the middle of April? I like those people.
They don't give up easy.
I made this for Maggie when I was, I think, 6.
We were living in a motel in Minnetonka.
Don't you have a search-committee meeting this morning? I could skip it.
We can talk some more.
No, you should go.
I have to be in soon, so - We haven't figured anything out yet.
- Yeah, I really don't wanna get into it again.
You've made a decision? We don't know what we are to each other.
- No one ever knows that.
- Oh, come on.
We've been friends for a long time.
Good friends.
- Yeah? - Been through a lot together.
That doesn't mean we could take care of a child.
It has to be your choice.
I know that.
Fall in the ambulance bay.
No head trauma, no LOC.
Okay, it's all right.
I'm fine.
- Complains of hip pain, can't bear weight.
- Stop it.
- I'm trying to be professional.
- It's annoying.
Whose job is it to deice the entrance? Get back to work.
Only a bruise, I'm fine.
- I'm gonna go find you a bed.
- No.
I don't need all that.
Hey.
Acetaminophen OD.
Should I give Mucomyst? Could you look over the positive-cultures list? - CT's down, we're closing- - Hold it! I'm not even on today.
Guys, guys.
Easy.
Easy.
Look, she had a nasty little slip on the ice, so let's give her some space, okay? Thank you.
- All right.
What? - What "what"? - What do you want? - I need a few weeks off.
- Why? - My band got a recording deal.
We're going to L.
A.
Back away from the gurney or I will impale you with my crutch.
- Kerry.
- Back off, Elvis.
Damn salt's ruined my shoes.
Newark's been snow-free all year.
Why don't you go back there? - These are Jimmy Choos.
- Jimmy who? Why are you wearing his shoes? Choos.
And they cost me about 400 bucks.
A, number one, you shouldn't be wearing shoes that cost more than people's rent.
And B, number two, it's January in Chicago.
Get some damn boots.
Let me tell you something: You're not a morning person.
No, I am not.
Hey, excuse me.
Excuse me, can I get some more coffee, please? - And some Splenda, about a fistful.
- No problem.
- What? - Shut up.
All I'm saying is that you're not really prepared for winter, are you? - So? - So So? So, so, so why don't you stay at my place today? I wanna see Michigan Avenue.
All right, fine.
Whatever.
Just don't buy it, will you? - I can shop if I want to, Vic.
- On whose credit card? You're still worried about Bobby.
I told you I severed all ties with him.
Just because you severed all ties with Bobby doesn't mean that he severed all ties with you.
- He has no idea where I went.
- Of course not.
He has no idea.
He would never think of you being with me.
- He doesn't know where you are.
- No.
No.
He's a freaking cop.
How hard do you think that is, huh? What are you, stupid? I mean, how stupid do you have to be? - What? - Give me some money.
- What for? - For a cab.
Give me some money.
Oh, come on.
Don't do this.
Don't be ridiculous, okay? Just don't Give me the money.
Yeah.
I need another 20.
Come on, don't do this.
And you know what you should think about? You- Don't touch me.
You should think about getting into meditation classes or maybe Pilates or something, because you, Vic, are getting very ugly.
And I mean that in the most metaphorical sense, okay? - Come on, don't walk away mad.
- Don't.
What? Now I gotta go get myself some boots, you jerk-off.
Oh, come on.
Come back here.
Jodie.
I'm sorry, I'm having trouble clearing a bed.
You know, this really isn't necessary.
I'm sure I can get to my office- Oh, you should let me examine you.
All right.
Just treat me like any other patient.
- You sure? - Yeah.
Get me out of the hall.
Neela, let's run the board.
- I have to take my broken-hip lady- - Hey.
- Not broken.
- Ted Cunningham, 23.
Lost his Shiley at the nursing home.
They found him cyanotic, put a 7.
0 in the neck.
- Okay, Pratt, go with them.
- He had a lot of mucous.
We tried to suction him.
His trach tube came out, he turned blue.
- You from the home? - No, I'm his mother.
Ted, can you open your eyes? He can't follow commands.
Okay.
Excuse us.
- NG tube and Number 6 Shiley.
- Ninety-four and 15 liters.
- He needs an NG? - Use it as a guide to change the airway.
- How long has he been like this? - Two years.
Ever since the night he turned 21.
His friends took him to a bar and made him drink 21 shots.
And on the way home he stepped into traffic and got clipped by a pickup truck.
You spend your whole life raising a kid right and then one stupid night turns him into this.
Where are you? It's time to open the presents.
Just making sure.
Oh, I think you can stop now.
We could find a way to make it work.
- If that's what you want.
- I don't know what I want.
I mean, I'm 37 years old.
If not now, when? You know how I feel about it.
Everything happens for a reason.
It scares me, Luka.
Having it or choosing not to? Yeah.
All right, pull the NG and bag him.
Abby, bag him.
Is he all right? He should be much better now that he has a new tube.
Thank you.
Sats up to 99.
What's Coburn doing here? Kovac's got her down on this lady with ovarian torsion.
Dr.
Rasgotra, someone seems to have left this.
So how's married life? It's very nice, thank you.
We're looking for a place of our own.
It sounds exciting.
The Army want Michael to finish his Residency at a military hospital.
- Then, where's the closest program? - Fort Hood, Texas.
I'm hoping he can end up somewhere not too far away.
Tenderness over the greater trochanter? Probably just a contusion from where I hit the ground.
I'm going to check your range of motion.
Ow! Oh, God.
Pain with internal rotation.
That's happened before.
I just need an ice pack for 10 minutes and it'll stop.
Something for the pain perhaps? Percocet? Vicodin? No, no.
I have too much work to do.
Eight hundred of ibuprofen and call for a hip series.
Well, I'll have to run it past my Attending first- I'm sorry.
Hey, pull the curtain, please.
- How's she doing? - Bit cranky at the moment.
You'll soften her up for me, right? - What? - For my TO request.
What do you need time off for? Neela, do you know who Barry Ginzberg is? - Gynecologist on the fourth floor? - No.
No, he's a record producer, a mogul, an idol maker.
He took a listen to a couple tracks my boys laid down and: We are going to L.
A.
and we have a gig at the Key Club.
If all goes well, we get to record a demo at his studio in Venice.
- Italy? - California, on the beach.
Congratulations, Ray, that's really awesome.
Here.
Super-infected foot fungus in 4.
Only thing is, is I'm gonna need a little time off.
- How much is a little? - Just a month.
- That's not little.
- Can you check out this patient for me? Amanda Ramsey, 15, presented with vague pain.
Sorry.
I have to get some ibuprofen and a hip series for Dr.
Weaver.
Please, I'll trade you.
- Haven't told her yet.
- Thanks a lot.
Amanda, I'm Dr.
Rasgotra.
How much longer do you think it'll be? Because I didn't mean to make a big deal.
- I probably just need Motrin or something.
- We ran a test on your urine.
Do I have a bladder infection? You're pregnant.
Did you know that? You didn't tell my parents, did you? They've been told that you were here, but that's all.
Who's the father? Some guy from school.
Boyfriend? No.
I can get our Adolescent Clinic to come down and talk to you.
- My parents won't like that.
- There are a number of options.
Yeah, I can keep it or put it up for adoption.
Or you could choose not to have it.
I could never do that.
It'd be against God.
They stabbed me in the heart! P.
P.
Perkins, mugging victim.
Wounds to chest, arms- - Name's P.
P.
? - I got blood coming out.
- He's only satting 82.
- You guys need a hand? No, we're on it.
Chest tube, in here.
Let's move it.
Okay, we're gonna need to remove an ovary, Sara but that's why God gave you a spare.
It's gonna be fine.
Prep her in 2.
I should be up in 15 minutes.
- How's it going? - Oh, well, good.
She's young and the other ovary looks good.
Oh, no.
I meant - Oh, "How's it going?" Well, fine.
You? - Good.
I just got paged for an ultrasound.
- Do you know anything about that? - No.
No, but I remember hearing that you surg your own practice? Yeah, yeah.
It's going very well, you know.
The only problem's the boss.
What a bitch.
- I'm the boss, Abby.
- Right.
- Now you're patronizing me.
- No, I- I just- I just might want to come and see you.
I need an OB.
Congratulations.
Wow, I had no idea.
I'll shut up.
Yeah, it wasn't something I expected.
Is it something you want? I'm not sure I'm at the right place in my life for this.
So So you don't wanna keep it.
- I'm sorry.
- I'm always prepared.
Here.
Thanks.
I've got office hours every afternoon.
Just come by any time.
I can help you.
Whether it's prenatal care or termination.
Whatever you decide.
Thank you.
And whatever you do, Abby, it's gonna be the right thing.
Thanks.
- Systolic's only 86.
- Almost there.
Get the Thora-Seal.
Okay.
A little pressure now.
All right.
So who really jacked you, huh, P.
P.
?.
- Some guys I know.
- Sats coming up.
We was drinking by this fire in this alley.
Right.
Must be real good friends to stab you in the heart.
- Did somebody call the cops? - Yeah.
On their way.
- I'm sure they're rushing over.
- No cops.
- BP's better, 110/75.
- No cops? They could have killed you.
I got problems.
I got problems.
- Cops only gonna make it worse.
- I feel you, bro.
Trust me.
Then do me a solid, man.
Anything for you, P.
P.
Anything.
More lube.
- It's cold.
- Oh, sorry about that.
- Dr.
Coburn.
- I called OB.
Couldn't there have been a mistake with that test? I don't think so.
Here.
You see this? That's the heart beating.
It's about seven weeks old, I'd say.
They won't understand.
- Your parents? - They'll say I've sinned.
I can help you talk to them if you want.
Can I have a minute? You were in with a patient, so I thought it was best to just- It would be better if you presented to me first.
Well, either way, I had to call an OB.
She's 15 and scared.
- Family on the way in? - They're very religious people.
Call me when they get here.
How'd you do this? Tried to hop a bus.
What, did you slip on the ice? I was skitching, fell off the fender.
Might be easier just to pay the fare.
Do I look like I got surplus income to blow? - Can I get another 3-0 Ethilon? - Mm-hm.
Were you on your way home? I haven't been home in a while.
Since, like, May.
Your folks must be worried about you.
Yeah, they worry a lot.
Always wanting to know what I'm doing, what I'm up to.
Gets to be a real drag, you know.
Doesn't sound so bad.
I'm an independent spirit, you know.
I wanna be on my own.
Do they even know where you are? No.
Just left one day.
What if I don't know how to love it right? Abby.
Maybe I'm not strong enough.
Being a parent makes you stronger.
And it breaks your heart.
You told me that.
That's not what I meant.
- I'm sorry, I didn't mean- - No, don't- Don't use that as a reason.
I'm sorry.
What if I go shopping and leave it in the supermarket? Don't worry, I'll do all the shopping.
I'm afraid I'd mess it up, Luka.
We won't.
Okay.
Keep the wound clean and dry.
Come back in a week to have the stitches removed.
- That's it? - Yeah.
Unless you wanna talk to somebody from Social Work.
Your daughter's right in here.
- Mandy? Are you okay? - I'm fine, Mom.
I'll leave you all to talk.
Could you stay? Sure.
Mom.
Daddy.
Something happened and I'm real sorry.
What happened, sweetie? We ran a test and did an ultrasound.
Amanda's pregnant.
We're waiting for some blood results.
- As soon as they arrive- - That's fine.
There are a number of places we can refer you to for counseling.
We'd like to be alone with our daughter now.
Thank you.
No free fluid on ultrasound.
Waiting on surgery to evaluate.
Not anymore, Red.
What do you got? Morning, sunshine.
- Who are you? - Clemente.
Who are you? - I'm Surgery, see the badge? - Oh, yeah.
You must be the bedside-manner coach I heard so much about.
Multiple stab wounds.
Stable after the chest tube.
- Anything enter the peritoneum? - Not sure.
Ultrasound's negative.
Doesn't answer my question.
- Hey, I got the cops out here.
- Relax.
Relax.
I got your back.
If you can get a smile out of Surgery, I'll pay for the date.
You're right on the cusp of sexual harassment.
The cusp.
That would be a new position for me.
Hey, guys.
I'm the Attending Physician on this case.
- Clemente? - Yeah.
This dude is very sick.
He's out of it completely.
He won't be able to give a statement.
I'm sorry.
- Hold on a sec.
You're Victor Clemente? - Yeah.
Were you listening to me? - He won't be able to give a statement.
- Easy.
We're not here on your patient.
We're here for you.
Dubenko's feisty gopher's at it again.
What? The chief Resident from the Death Star.
- She's down on a consult.
- Albright? He's hemodynamically stable with no peritoneal signs.
- So why'd you call me? - Look, missy, it's protocol, all right? You didn't really just call me "missy," did you? Okay, look.
The case meets trauma criteria.
Next time, call me when you know what you got on your hands.
Are you Dr.
Albright? He was stabbed.
I need to know if he needs surgical repair.
Neela Rasgotra.
I wanted to catch you about doing a surgery elective.
Right.
Work up your patient.
Image the belly, explore the wounds, figure out how deep they are.
If they enter the peritoneal cavity, call me.
I'll be more than happy to get involved.
One-third of stab wounds enter the peritoneal cavity and damage the viscera.
One-third go in and don't hit anything.
And one-third are shallow and tangential.
The trajectory was suggested by the hilt mark of the knife.
He won't need surgery.
You should pay more attention to your interns, Red.
I'm an R2, actually.
Okay, R2.
Call me about that elective.
We might be able to work something out.
Parking violations? You gotta be kidding me, right? Okay.
But you had some other problems back East.
What problems you talking about? You left Newark General under some serious allegations.
I never.
I never, never, never compromised a patient's care.
- Do you understand me? I never.
- Okay, okay.
Let's get back to Mrs.
Kenyon.
She had issues- What issues? She had no issues.
She was a nurse.
I'd ask her for 6-0 Vicryl and she'd bring it to me.
No issues.
- Can I go now? Thank you.
- Not yet.
All right.
You do realize that son of a bitch hits her? - So you have seen her? - You realize that.
No, I haven't seen her.
But I can see what's going on here and it's pretty low.
To sic you on me because he can't keep his wife happy, that's pretty pathetic.
All we know is Mrs.
Kenyon's a missing person who might be in trouble.
- Be in more trouble if you find her.
- Meaning? Meaning sometimes people go missing because they feel safer that way.
- My advice: Stop looking for her.
- Don't you go missing.
- I'm gonna wanna talk to you.
- Why would I go missing? Why? Confusing me for one of your scumbags? Settle down before it gets embarrassing.
Hope this conversation doesn't throw me off my game.
After all the cops' lives I've saved.
I'd hate to be less than 100 percent when your brother comes in with a bullet.
I think we're done for now.
Take it easy.
Hey, we got any loperamide in stock? Yeah, I'm sure we have some.
- I got you the good stuff.
Today was- - Hey.
Sorry.
It's turkey day in the cafeteria.
No.
- No what? - Is the answer to your question.
Can I at least state my case first? Okay.
This is big.
This is a big opportunity for my band.
And for me.
And you never know when you're gonna get another shot like this.
My recollection is you were warned last year about your commitment to this job.
Yes, I was.
To your credit, you've done an excellent job showing us that you wanna be here.
- I do.
- You're a good doctor.
- Thank you.
- We don't need to discuss this further.
You're valuable, you're valued.
Conversation over.
Have you tried the stuffing? It's great stuffing.
And, you know, I got you an extra piece- - Dr.
Barnett! - Look, Kerry- Dr.
Weaver.
Have you ever dreamed about something without ever believing it would actually happen? Because that's what this is.
I've This is so huge to me, that if I couldn't do this I would seriously consider quitting.
Far be it from me to stand in the way of the next Springsteen or KC & The Sunshine Band.
Resignation accepted.
What? - Why do you wanna do surgery? - I'm curious about it.
The hours suck, Attendings are slave drivers Residents stab each other in the back.
Not like down here where we're just one big, happy family.
What's wrong? Ashlee Simpson get caught lip-synching again? - I think I just quit.
- Quit? To go to California with my band.
Oh, great.
Yeah.
No, bold move.
I like it.
Keeping that music dream alive.
No, you'll love California.
Everybody, Ray Barnett, rock god.
Morris, I've already sent my paperwork up to Surgery.
Well, get it back.
I can't spare you, especially now with Ray on his way out.
If we're not fully staffed, you're not going anywhere.
I don't care what Dr.
Cruella says.
Three forty-five, that'll work.
Yeah.
Thank you.
- Ray's on his way out? - Yeah.
Up and quit, not gonna let the man keep him down.
- I don't think he meant to.
- Hey, guys.
Guys, come here.
- Know the girl I've been hanging with? - Jodie? Yeah, we love Jodie.
Taught me to tie a knot in a cherry stem using only my tongue.
- Really? - Come on, guys.
- Anybody ask for her? - No.
You never saw her, okay? And if anybody asks, the same goes for me.
- What? - Pretend you never heard of me.
Pratt's bringing in a patient.
Get with him, okay? Okay.
He gets weirder every day.
Look, you heard what Dr.
Albright said.
So? She's the chief Resident upstairs, I'm the chief here.
You work for me.
- Oh, come on.
That's not fair.
- Fair? What's fair? Excuse me, doctor.
Mr.
Ramsey.
I can sign whatever I need to, and we'll get out of your way.
Like me to call anyone for further treatment? Thank you.
I think we'll arrange our own prenatal care.
Amanda decided to keep it? The baby.
It's just that she's young and it was an accident.
No, no.
I don't believe in accidents.
Now, I know you may not understand this but it is God's will for her to have this child.
I only mean you may want to consider the long-term effects.
You might wanna consider the spiritual effects of what you're suggesting.
It's my job to make sure the patient understands all the options available.
A human life has just been created.
And I'm sorry, but anything that interferes with that is morally indefensible.
Finished a cycle of chemo two days ago.
Couldn't get an IV, he's too dry.
Pratt, O.
R.
needs an Attending to sign off on your pancreatic pseudocyst.
- Where's Clemente? - On the roof.
- We're getting a chopper patient? - No.
He just says that his cell phone gets better reception up there.
Place a subclavian and bolus him.
I'll be back.
Okay, triple lumen tray and 1 percent lido.
- He's tachy at 132.
- A little bit cold here.
I was never the sickly type, you know.
- No? - Always very healthy.
Used to do triathlons.
Believe that? - Me too.
- Really? Smoking, drinking and watching TV.
- You should stop that.
- I have.
Six years ago, I find out I inherited the Philadelphia chromosome.
Ran on my mother's side of the family.
I never knew.
Screwed by genetics.
First time, I was panicked the baby would be bipolar.
I'm not so sure I've changed that much.
The chances are slim, you know that.
Crossing the street is a risk.
If you let it get to you, you'd never have children.
Nobody would.
Well, maybe some people aren't supposed to.
Well, I don't think you're one of them.
Yeah, well, you don't know what it was like with Maggie and Eric.
Come on.
You're looking for reasons again.
And what are you looking for? Someone to have a baby with? That what you think? Because if it is, then what the hell are we doing here? Happy New Year.
A whole cascade of things have to happen to cause CML.
Philadelphia chromosome doesn't mean cancer.
No, just that you're born with a big strike against you.
As soon as you get this message, call me.
I wanna talk to you immediately.
Right away.
Maybe you're trying me right now, so I'm just gonna hang up and And you gotta call me.
You gonna jump? - It's not a trick question.
- Yeah, sure it's not.
Here.
I need you to sign off on this.
- What are you doing here? It's freezing.
- Yeah, well, I got a very high core temp.
It's a Latin thing.
- You wanna talk or something? - No.
Why would I? I don't know.
You seem a little ragged.
Yeah, I just got some chick trouble, that's all.
- Then I'm your men.
- Except I don't like to share.
You know, I heard you never stick anyplace.
Maybe people don't go to the mat for you because they have no idea who you are.
All right.
All right, so there was this crazy nurse at my last hospital.
- In Newark? - Yeah.
She's a piece of work, and it just ended bad.
It usually does.
You know, I came here just to focus, to stay on the straight and narrow.
- Sounds like a good idea.
- Yeah, one would think.
Except it's easier said than done, because this girl she's got my number, if you know what I mean.
And a very pissed-off husband.
See? I'm starting to like you more already.
Damn, so many patients.
- Don't you feel better now? - Not really, no.
Can't say that I do.
Type and Rh are back on Amanda.
Then we're done.
- You off already? - Yeah.
- I have a doctor's appointment.
- Oh.
I'm going to see Coburn.
- Coburn? - At her practice.
- I'll get Clemente to cover.
- It's okay.
You're working.
No, I should come with you.
- It probably would be easier if you didn't.
Hey.
Hey.
When I say I want us to keep it, you don't like the way it sounds.
But anything else is a lie.
Luka.
Neela's waiting for you to sign off on the Ramsey girl.
- Get Clemente to do it.
- He's MIA.
I don't know what else to say.
Don't say anything.
Take one of these every day.
It'll help keep you and the baby healthy.
- Okay.
- Where are your parents? My mom's making some calls and my dad had to go to a meeting.
If it makes you nauseous, try taking it at night before you go to bed, okay? This is some more information that might be useful.
And we got this for you from the ultrasound.
I wish this didn't happen.
I wish I could make it go away.
Well, everything happens for a reason.
There was this party at my friend Ginny's house.
And I drank some beer and I did some other stuff with a couple of guys, and And I must have passed out in the bedroom because when I woke up my jeans were on the floor and there was blood all over the sheets.
I tried to change the covers- Amanda were you raped? Always thought the first time would be with someone I loved.
Why didn't you say something? I don't want this.
Please.
You need to explain to your parents what happened.
They'll understand.
You have to tell them.
I did tell them.
Mrs.
Ramsey? I'll call you back.
- Amanda told you what happened to her? - Yes.
And you still want her to do this? That baby can't be punished for how it was conceived.
It's not up to us to determine who gets to be born.
We're talking about a 15-year-old girl.
- Your daughter, who was raped.
- Neela.
You'd force her to carry this to term, change her life? I wouldn't force her to do anything.
She believes the same things that we believe.
- This is an inappropriate conversation.
- Inappropriate? - She's terrified, doesn't wanna keep it.
- Let's take a walk.
Think for one minute about what's in your daughter's best interest.
You think it's in her best interest to kill the baby? Because I can assure you that in the eyes of God, it most certainly is not.
Excuse me.
Leave these people alone now.
They've made a decision.
Parents have no legal rights.
Pregnancy emancipates her.
There's nothing else you can do.
That girl's head is so far twisted, she doesn't understand she has a choice.
She doesn't want an abortion.
She doesn't wanna have the baby either.
Anyone can see that.
What about misoprostol? It's used as an abortifacient.
She won't consent to that.
Just let it go, Neela.
You're the wrong person to talk to about this.
Excuse me? I would like your permission to consult another Attending.
Someone who's not Catholic.
Listen to me very seriously.
I'm a doctor first, above and beyond anything else and I don't let my personal beliefs get in the way of a patient's best interests.
Ever.
Now, give me that chart and move on to the next one.
I'm sorry.
I - There's gotta be something that we- - You're done here.
Do you wanna have this baby? I have to.
Is it what you want? No.
No, it isn't.
This is called a laminaria.
It goes into the cervix where it absorbs water and swells, creating a larger opening.
After that happens it's possible that the fetus might fall out.
- Possible? - You might have a miscarriage.
- Does it hurt? - A little.
There might be some cramping.
Is it a sin? It's just a medical way we have of giving God a chance to reconsider.
Abigail Lockhart? Oh, my God.
Nobody was out today.
I had the pick of the litter.
Hey, come on.
You gotta leave.
Hey, what the hell's wrong with you? Cops are on me, getting on my ass.
Why? Your dick of a husband, Bobby, has put out a missing-persons report.
- That's why.
- He did? Yeah.
How long we got till he traces you to me? How long before I'm walking around with my testicles in a jar? Tell me.
Vicky.
Vic, Vic.
I love you.
Sometimes you can be such a little faggot.
Oh, yeah? I'm gonna get a big boyfriend who'll kick your maniac of a husband's ass.
How do you like that, huh? How do you like that? Hey, you're ripping the leather.
Quiet, will you? - That's great.
That's great.
- You gotta pay your tickets.
That's great.
Damn it.
Vic, what's going on? Hey, X-Ray, how's it going? So this must be Jodie, huh? Who, her? That's not Jodie.
- Hi.
- Hey.
It's weird.
I've parked here a lot of times and never had a problem.
Yeah, it's weird.
We're gonna take the el.
Right.
- Nice meeting you.
- Likewise.
Yo, Ray.
Bret.
Hey, how was practice? - Thanks for meeting me, man.
- Yeah.
Grab some coffee? Yeah.
So I took care of everything.
Schedule's all cleared up.
I thought we were gonna talk before you did anything.
Did something happen? Don't tell me Ginzberg isn't interested.
No, it's still on.
Here's the thing.
You've been pretty busy with this whole doctor thing lately.
- Kind of distracted, you know? - True.
True.
But I'm a hundred percent onboard now, okay? Hundred and ten, actually.
Well, we all got together and talked about it.
Who did? The guys.
This morning.
Kind of decided the band's gotta make some changes.
Changes? What do you mean, changes? You'll need to come back to have the laminaria removed.
Probably feel a little pain.
Nothing to worry about.
You can take ibuprofen.
That should help.
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee.
And before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee and ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Jeremiah 1:5.
Man was born of dust.
It was only when God breathed life into Adam that he became a living soul.
Genesis.
You're a Christian.
What do I tell my mom? She'll think you're having a miscarriage.
And you will be.
All done.
You can take her home now.
Okay.
Thank you, doctor.
Weaver's MRI results are back.
- What happened? - Sorry? What were you doing in there? Taking care of the patient.
Hey, Abby.
It's me.
I guess I missed you.
Nothing.
I'll see you soon.
Okay.
Advanced degeneration with a cartilaginous flap.
At least that explains the pain.
I've seen that kind of thing heal with enough bed rest and physical therapy.
I've been putting this off for years.
Maybe it's time to face the music.
- I'll need a total hip replacement.
- Not necessarily.
Just when Henry's starting to run around like a crazy man.
- How is he? - He's great.
You should see him.
He looks just like Sandy.
Went by your place but I figured you might come home this way.
I don't want everything we have to come down to this one decision.
We can get past it.
You did what you had to do.
Doesn't mean we can't be together.
I didn't do it.
I couldn't.
I wanna keep it.
I want us to have this baby.
