Grey's Anatomy s15e17 Episode Script

And Dream of Sheep

1 When I was in second grade.
This girl Misie, could cross her leg behind her head like a pretzel.
And one day her leg just poped.
And then it was lying there, behind her.
My mother said, "Stop crying.
It was just an anterior hip dislocation.
" Then she said something I've never forgotten.
Mm Nope.
Save it for the sake of the fight "Just because you can do something" [SIGHS.]
- "doesn't mean you should.
" - [DOOR OPENS.]
Copy/paste the child inside You used to smile, but now you are staged [ELEVATOR BELL DINGS.]
- Hey.
- I hate to watch you walk away Hey.
Did you spend the night here again last night? Yeah.
One of the lambs had a rough night.
I-I really need some of that.
It's actually for you.
It's a peace offering.
I guess I was wrong about your dad, and it's none of my business.
- No, it's it's not that - I'm just - [ELEVATOR BELL DINGS.]
- I'm glad it's going well.
- I appreciate that.
- Yeah.
And I really appreciate this.
Do you have a minute? Save it for the sake of our love I missed you.
Raise a hand to show that you're strong You're not mad at me? You used to smile, but now you are shunned So, if I was to stay at my place one night this week, would you care to join me? I hate to watch you walk alone That's the best idea I've ever heard.
I'll try to figure it out.
Is this how you're gonna grow old? I really should get to work.
Is this how you're gonna grow old? And you should get some sleep, Doctor.
- Is this how you're gonna grow old? - [CHUCKLES.]
Don't forget your coffee.
- I'm already wide awake.
- [CHUCKLES.]
[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES.]
JACKSON: Keep your cuts straight.
You want to go into the dermis.
Stay as shallow as we can.
Wonder if the guys at Pike Street Market went to four years of medical school.
[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES.]
Hey.
So I think I should cancel this thing tomorrow.
Oh, my God.
Honestly, I don't even smell it anymore.
I do.
Yeah, I-I'm not going on "Good Morning Seattle.
" A podcast was one thing, but television? Plus, it's not even about medicine anymore.
It's It's "Genius surgeon finds out she's the illegitimate love-child of other genius surgeons.
" I'm morning show fodder.
You're in the genius surgeon segment, okay? It's not like you're going in there to make French toast.
No, that would be the worst segment in the world.
They'd just be watching me fishing around looking for eggshells with my fingers.
Yet I would still pay to see that.
[TELEPHONE RINGS IN DISTANCE.]
So you're saying I shouldn't cancel it? I'm saying it shoots tomorrow, and it's too late to cancel.
Don't be nervous.
You're gonna do great.
- Okay.
- [CHUCKLING.]
Okay? Why are your interns making sushi? - Well - Oh, is this your thing? Well, I have to get out of here.
I can't go on TV smelling like fish.
Why can't we practice on cadavers? Formaldehyde smells nicer.
This is not for your scalpel technique.
It's not? Then why? This is why.
Oh, that's - Ohh.
- Fantastic.
Hey, Rick.
[INDISTINCT WHISPERING.]
We're making fish people.
[GASPS.]
It is very disturbing.
Have y-you seen it? The little laminated lambs kicking in their little bags.
It's pretty amazing, huh? When I look at the fetal lamb in a bag, I imagine the next step would be a fetal human in a bag.
And if anything goes wrong with that, we are in an ethical and legal quagmire that you created and will have left me holding the quag.
That's funny, but I imagine rewriting the paradigm of at-risk pregnancies, - saving premature babies.
- Ohh.
And he's a long way from human trials.
And are you sure it's good to go down this road? I mean, I'm hearing things about this Dr.
DeLuca having a history of mental illness We should discriminate against people for that? [SCOFFS.]
Of course not.
But we should ask questions when they start putting babies in bags.
Bailey, my mom came out here by herself.
She's been in my apartment for over a week no routine, no being chained to a library desk.
And even if Dr.
DeLuca does suffer from mental illness, we need to support people Hellmouth, what? Hi, hello.
Sorry.
Uh, hi.
I, uh, was wondering if you might want to take a stroll by Dr.
DeLuca Sr.
's lab or, more specifically, you should you should do that.

[SPEAKING ITALIAN.]
[SPEAKING ITALIAN.]
Excuse me.
Did you call the headmaster now? What's the problem? He lost a lamb.
One subject expired.
A minor setback, to be expected.
We think that it Babies die in womb all the time.
papà, you're working very fast.
- Y-You are too impatient.
- Hey! You don't like the way I work, you can get out.
- I'm not saying that I - Go! I will miss your bold vision.

" - I meant to say you're late.
- [SIREN WAILING.]
[SIGHS.]
I ran into trouble with Leo this morning, and Amelia's at a conference.
Actually, Amelia's out of the picture, which is You know, Amelia, she would sometimes help with Leo, but this morning, it was all me.

Excuse me.
Is this the, uh, line? - Hey.

Yeah.
Tough day.
Yes.
I cried at you, convulsively.
You might recall.
I haven't seen you around much since then.
Yeah, that was intentional.
It's hard to know where to go after that.
Anyway, I'm, uh, newly into it.
How about you? Uh, I do, like, three of these a year, yeah.
I'm giving a lecture.
Wow.
- W-When is that? - Tomorrow.

He refuses to acknowledge it, and now you are, too.
I'm being paged to The Hole.
The Pit.

This is an important project, but my father Is the one who brought it here.
Could ruin it if you let him.
Is that your take? Look, he's not easy.
H-He's never been easy.

Strong heartbeat, moving, no signs of distress.

We were gonna wait, like, five years.
We just got married, but when we found out, we were just like, "Yay!" All right, Lizzie.
You sit tight.
Can I talk to you outside for a minute, please? Yeah.
[BEEPING CONTINUES.]
I know you're seeing a healthy baby, but I'm seeing a mother with a belly full of blood, and to save her, I might have to remove her uterus along with the baby.
The baby's no more than 21 weeks.
- It cannot survive outside - I know.
And I have to tell her now, and you just made it so much harder for her to hear.
So please keep your mouth shut and check with me if you need to talk to her again, all right? I-I-I'm sorry.

[CLEARS THROAT.]
Grey, you're being creepy.
I'm creepy? They're calling you the ruler of Atlantis.
Yeah, well, I mean, it's pretty cool.
Tilapia skin's rich in collagen, which promotes healing.
No more need for painful dressing changes.
I'm looking to apply a lot of those properties to my spray-on skin.
Ooh, the spray-on skin is back? Well, your boyfriend is putting lambs in zip-lock bags.
He can't be the only one changing the world, you know? He's not my boyfriend.
Well, that's not what Maggie said.
Or Richard.
Anyway, I'm not sure how that project is going.
I have a bad feeling.
Why? Why is that? Never mind.
I'm just gonna be supportive.
Ah.
I get it.
Because he's your boyfriend.
How is Maggie doing? Is she nervous about the TV thing? Well, she put her makeup on twice, and then they wiped it right off and then re-applied it, so - [LAUGHS.]
- It's going great.
Hey, can he breathe underwater? - Just keep walking, Grey.
- [LAUGHS.]
[TELEPHONE RINGS IN DISTANCE.]
She told you she's afraid to go home? - But she seems to be doing fine.
- And she is.
But, you know, mental illness is like cancer and diabetes, any other chronic illness you have to monitor.
Why was she even telling you this? I asked her how she was.
Is this some kind of crusade for you, Bailey? I mean, first going after Dr.
DeLuca, now my mom? Wh I'm not "going after" anyone.
'Cause it seems like you're prejudiced.
It What? Against people with mental illness.
I'm not prejudiced, you jackass! I am a person with mental illness! [SIGHS.]
And I cope with it every day.
I take my medication, and I'm doing great.
But, sometimes, I need help.
That's That's why I asked you to stay on as chief.
And it's hard to ask for that help.
Your mother needs to ask, and she can't.
Your job is to make it so that she can.
So do your job, son.
Prejudiced.
[SCOFFS.]
Jackass.
[DOOR CREAKS.]
[CELLPHONE CHIMES, VIBRATES.]
What the hell? Tell me what happened.
Last night, I found Vincenzo DeLuca counseling my patient to gestate her premature baby in a bag.

He said that the fetus would be safe and sound in an artificial womb.
[SIGHS.]
Listen.
He He's working on I transfused multiple times overnight to buy time, but I'm just wasting blood.
I'm gonna have to operate soon.
But, Alex, we can do this? I mean, we can save my patient's 21-week-old baby? Can we really save them both? Hey.
Have you seen Maggie? - MAGGIE: Um, I know.
- [GASPS.]
Is that the woman from "Good Morning Seattle"? Huh! - Yeah, Maggie's very fancy now.
- Shh.
Right, uh-huh.
I-I I took the job here before anyone knew.
And you found a family.
Yeah.
I mean, I-I knew that, uh, my mom had been here and she was gone.
But I had no idea that I had a sister.
And, um, a man who, um I have a father [CHUCKLES.]
Bill Pierce, who raised me.
Hi, Dad.
[CHUCKLES.]
Um, but Richard Webber is, uh, a bonus.
I don't know how else to describe it.
I'm I'm I'm very lucky.
Sounds like a pleasant surprise.
It's more than pleasant.
It's life-changing.
- Oh, my God.
- But you missed that crucial window, - the chance to meet your mother.
- JACKSON: What? - I did, but - That's a sign.
I came here to ask her whether I should find my birth mother, and then she's - That is a sign.
- gain a perspective on her - that no one else got.
- What? JACKSON: Uh, nothing.
- Um.
- Do you think What? I connected with my father a while back, and it was not the best idea.
It didn't alleviate any of my pain.
It just kind of created more.
So unless there's some big answer that you're looking for, you might just want to let it go.
MAGGIE: My point was, I was I was raised by You took my sign down.
wonderful parents who encouraged me to go for everything I wanted.
WOMAN: When we come back, we're making wraps the sandwich solution that brightens your kid's lunch box.

[SPEAKING ITALIAN.]
[SPEAKING ITALIAN.]
- [SPEAKING ITALIAN.]
- Dr.
DeLuca, you can't promise fake procedures with my patients.
Please.
Tell me something you try that could work.
I have a living subject.
And a dead one just last night! P-papà, you are reckless! You are thoughtless! - You just You just - All right, right now, we have a mess to clean up with this patient.
And you're gonna help.

[SIGHS.]
[GLASS SHATTERS.]
[MONITOR BEEPING.]
I have to take you up to surgery now, and I will most likely have to do a hysterectomy.
Wait.
N-No.
That doctor he said he could save the baby.
The procedure he told you about is not yet available.
But he said it was.
He said he could do it.
TEDDY: It It hasn't been tested in people.
We don't have approval to try this procedure on your baby.
I-I approve.
I'm the mother.
I give you approval.
Do it.
Try it! I-I can't.
[VOICE BREAKING.]
You'll just let our baby die? I'm sorry.

LINK: This is Jason.
In 2014, Jason was a junior and goalie in high school and club soccer.
Scholarship material.
Protecting the goal got him a patellar fracture, comminuted tibial plateau, torn meniscus, ACL.
Still, he got the team to the state finals.
- [LAUGHTER.]
- He required multiple surgeries, all of which went well, had intense P.
T.
sessions, and I prescribed him opioids for the pain.
When Jason died two years later in a car accident under the influence, I realized that he was a drug addict.
- And I had been his first dealer.
- [CROWD MURMURING.]
[CLEARS THROAT.]
But here's my real point.
If I had to do it all over again, I would've made the same decision.
[MURMURING CONTINUES.]
Ah Let me tell you why.
Opioids are undeniably a very effective way of fooling the body into thinking everything is okay.
[MONITOR BEEPING.]
Are you going to intubate? No.

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS.]
What did you think you were doing? You know [SCOFFS.]
I mean, you must know that you couldn't try it on their baby.
Why would you give them false hope like that? We have the tools right there.
I could've saved a person's life Not yet! It's not ready.
We don't know if the baby would survive, how the baby would survive, if if the brain - would have deficits - Oh, porca miseria stop.
Stop.
You sound just like the rest of them.
Oh, my God.
This is it.
This is just like it was that night.
What night? Andrea, what night? What do you mean "what night"? The night four people died, papà! It is just like that night.
Seven people come in mangled.
- I am the only one there.
- No, no, no, no.
People came, people offered to help, and you wouldn't let them.
I was doing the job that needed to be done! - And the roads are filling up - You see, this is exactly what they talk about.
This is delusional, papà.
Am I supposed to stop, let another doctor try and continue where I am? - They would've died! - They did! - They did die! - But, baby, I know And tonight, a pregnant mother might lose her unborn baby to a car accident, which is tragic, but it's merciful - compared to watching it die in a bag - I was standing on the ceiling at the hands of some scientist who doesn't know what the hell he's doing! papà, please tell me you can see that.
Saw a plane crash on the news [VOICE BREAKING.]
Are you too sick to see that? They say the chances of that happening How is the baby? Are about the same as finding you CARINA: Would you like to Yeah.

But what happened with this patient was a major breach of protocol.
I can't have that.
So I've decided You need to reconsider right now what you're about to say.
- DELUCA: papà, don't argue.
- Do not interrupt me.
papà, you need to get help before somebody gets hurt.
Like that baby? I might have saved that baby.
But you let it die, and you let it die, and you let it die! Because of your cowardice and laziness, you will never know if that child had to die at your hands.
Damn it! You're stopping my research? That what you're about to say? No! You don't get my research! You don't deserve it! I take it and go! Cretini! [SIGHS SOFTLY.]

You missed the good part.
There was a good part? You know, "error of my ways," all that stuff.

You know, I-I didn't really have a choice but to give him those drugs.
You would've done the exact same thing I did.
I absolutely would not have, because I understand how addiction works.
- Back then, you would've.
- And I believe the drug companies also understand it, and they have made billions on the back of it.
Jason's leg was caught between a defender and a goalpost.
His knee was bent 90 degrees sideways.
No amount of ibuprofen or sound baths were gonna help him.
- He was talking about suicide.
- Yeah, and you gave him the means! And you would do it again.
You said you Not the same way, not blindly.
[DOOR CREAKS.]
[DOOR CLICKS SHUT.]
Amelia, science has given us a way to tell the brain to stop unbearable pain.
So far, there's no alternative as effect Are you just giving me your lecture now? A child is dead! You failed him! And you think I haven't felt that every day since Jason's funeral? When I saw the look on his mother's face, I left medicine.
For a year, I only trusted myself to fix bikes.
I quit.
But, then, I got mad.
Because, yeah, I failed, the same way we've all failed.
We blew the first rule do no harm.
But he needed those drugs immediately post-op, and that's where it should've stopped.
I should've warned him and his mother about the dangers of dependency.
I-I should've followed up with his GP.
The system is broken, and I'm doing everything I can to try to fix it.
So you're saying I missed the good part.
[EXHALES SHARPLY.]
I'm trying to make it right for Jason.
You're trying to make it right for Betty.
Maybe we don't have to fight about this.
M-Maybe we could fight this thing together, like Batman and Batman.
Okay.
