You want to grill him.
That's what you wanna do.
Hospital? [SIGHS.]
Wendell's room service is on the way.
How's he doing? Apparently living it up.
On my dime.
At least we got our couch back.
So when's he supposed to hear about that job in Boston? - Well, he says any day now.

She's in surgery right now.
She has a broken arm and some facial fractures, which our plastics and orthopedic teams are working on.
She also suffered an injury to her spleen, which at this point, opening up her abdomen could do more harm than good.
And the blood flow to her organs is stable.
Oftentimes, these things heal themselves.
We have a family dinner every week.

Sweetheart, you know, I was thinking we should create a wellness room at home.

So, your contractions are irregular and not too strong, so it appears to be just Braxton Hicks.

Doctors are the worst.
Excuse me? Stop hovering.
Mind your business.

I gave him a good deal.
Why'd you buy so many? [CHUCKLES.]
I-I used to ask myself that a lot.
None of the answers made sense, so I just tried to move past it.
How'd that work out? Um I burned my relationship with Amelia to the ground.
I trashed my friendship with Jo.
So not great.
Is it 'cause you slept together? I don't regret Scout, if that's what you mean.
Not Amelia.
She told you? Well, we were drinking.
You say things when you're drinking.
Did she mention anything about feelings? 'Cause, apparently, there were some feelings.
There are no longer feelings? - Now there's Todd.

I really don't.
But even when I do, it doesn't matter if she's sober or not.
She still lies to my face without an ounce of remorse.
