Magnum P.I. (2018) s03e08 Episode Script

Someone to Watch Over Me

1 The best things in life are free Straight flush.
- Aw, come on.
- Come to papa.
This guy's on fire.
KUMU: He takes any more of my money, I'll set him on fire.
(LAUGHS) That's what I want Hey, uh, you want a scrip for that? I, uh, I know you've been having trouble sleeping.
How would you know that? I might have mentioned it.
(MAGNUM CHUCKLES) - Really? - Magnum, Ethan is a doctor.
He's offering you a remedy.
I think the correct response might be "thank you.
" Well, Dr.
Ethan, thank you, but no, thank you.
(SHORT CHUCKLE) Feeling really, really good about this one, I'm not gonna lie.
(GIGGLING) Hey, uh, Shammy wants to surf this weekend.
You in? Oh, I'm gonna raise five.
A Marine homie asked me to talk to potential officer candidates.
Hang on, is that Mitch? I know Mitch.
Why wouldn't Mitch ask me? 'Cause he knew I would do it better.
I call.
- I am definitely in.
- Ooh, Kumu! (OVERLAPPING CHATTER, LAUGHTER) (LAUGHS) Bet's to you, Higgy.
Oh, sorry.
(CLEARS THROAT) Hey, hey, you can't You guys can't do that.
- Do what? - You're colluding under the table.
I saw you you were doing something.
Oh, they're playing footsie.
RICK: No, no.
You know what? He's right.
You can't do that.
You could be signaling what cards you have.
I-I swear, we're not cheating.
That's exactly what someone who's cheating would say.
Oh, come on.
This is absurd.
If we are cheating, we're not very good at it, are we? I mean, Thomas's chip stack is twice the size of ours put together.
All the more reason for you to want your money back.
Oh, do you really want to start talking about who owes whom money at this table? (LAUGHTER) - She does have a point there.
- MAGNUM: Just saying.
Poker is not a team sport.
Okay, fine.
You know what? I'll make this easy.
I fold.
ETHAN: Yeah, I'm - I'm out, too.
Here comes the flop.
(LAUGHING) Rick, that's to you.
RICK: Oh, sorry.
I was just, uh, throwing up a little bit in my mouth.
Uh, I'll check.
(LAUGHING) Okay, seriously, guys? We're in the middle of a big hand here.
What do you want us to do? Ignore each other? I-I mean, you could get a room? KATSUMOTO: Good idea.
RICK: Yeah, get a room.
I That's my vote.
Doctor, doctor, give me the news.
Don't you dare answer that.
I don't want to.
Doctor, doctor, give me the news.
Duty calls.
I know.
Doctor, doctor Dr.
Yeah, I'll be right there.
(PANTING) I'm sorry.
(SIGHS) Look who's on fire now! - (KUMU GIGGLES) - MAGNUM: Come on.
I see you Kumu.
Hey, look who's back.
That was fast.
What happened? Don't ask.
No way you had time to Yeah.
Why you eyeing our chips like a starving hyena? Can we just shut up and play, please? - Kumu, would you deal? - Okay.
Mm, watch out, guys.
I think Higgy's about to take our money.
(BIRDS SINGING) (KNOCKING) Magnum, wake up.
Magnum? (CLEARS THROAT) Oh, hey, hey! Good morning.
What are you doing? (SIGHS) Oh, no, it's not a good morning.
I just fell asleep an hour ago.
What do you want? Ethan needs us at hospital.
Us? Like you and me? Yes, Magnum.
That's generally what "us" means.
- Why? - I have no idea.
He said it's urgent, so hurry up.
Come on.
Get dressed.
TC: Look, it ain't no walk in the park, that's for sure.
The Corps is gonna push you in ways you can't even imagine.
But I'd become a Marine all over again.
It was the best thing I ever did.
If you don't mind my asking, what made you seek a commission? (SIGHS) Lot of things.
I grew up in North Carolina.
Went and got a college degree, but I had no path.
I was only sure of two things.
How much I love this country and how bad I wanted to fly choppers.
(LAUGHS) Yeah, I knew I could learn in the service.
And once I was in, I got things I didn't even know I needed.
Focus, structure, discipline.
MITCH: He got that and more from Gunnery Sergeant Murphy.
(CHUCKLES) Hell yeah.
He rode my ass.
(LAUGHTER) But he made me the man I am today.
I can attest to what kind of man that is.
They don't make 'em better.
(CHUCKLES) Well, any more questions? All right.
Well, good luck.
- ALL: Oorah! - Well done, pal.
It's a good group.
Yeah, we'll see who can hack it.
- Yeah? - Not for the faint of heart.
- (CHUCKLES) - Speaking of, how's Rick doing? Oh, you know, he's jealous you didn't ask him.
Sounds like Rick.
(BOTH LAUGH) JOEY: Um, excuse me, Mr.
Calvin? I'm-I'm Joey.
I just want to say thanks.
You know, I was already excited to become a Marine, but what you said really brought it home for me.
Well, that's good to hear.
Where you from? Uh, same as you.
North Carolina.
- No way.
- Yeah.
How long since you've been back home? About four months.
I-I just wanted to come out here and get some sun before I joined up.
- Get some surfing in.
- All right.
- I feel ya.
- (LAUGHING): Yeah.
Uh, listen, I don't I don't know if you're busy right now, but, uh, I-I'd love to buy you coffee and hear more about the Corps.
For a young brother from North Carolina? I got time, but I'm buying.
All right.
- Hey.
Thanks for coming.
She didn't give me much choice.
What's going on? Few hours ago, I was called to the ER to do an emergency consult on a 22-year-old named Paul Wilson.
He had shortness of breath that was getting worse.
X-rays show an early tension pneumothorax.
HIGGINS: For the laymen amongst us, a pneumothorax is Air in the pleural cavity, generally caused by a punctured lung.
See, the air can't escape, so the pressure increases, compressing the heart, right? That's correct.
I've gone undercover as a doctor a couple times.
- I've done my research.
- Anyway, X-ray also revealed some sort of odd metallic object.
It could be what caused the puncture, I'm not sure, but I asked Paul if he had swallowed anything, or if he knew what it could be.
- He said "no.
" - MAGNUM: Okay.
Where do we come in? I'm sorry.
I'm getting there.
I told him I needed to do more imaging to better define the object.
Then I would do surgery to remove it and then repair the lung.
But when the nurse went to take him to CT, he was gone.
He just left? MAGNUM: Maybe he got scared.
Wanted a second opinion.
He could have just said that.
I mean, I wasn't gonna force him into anything.
Do you have any idea where this Paul might have gone? No.
I-I left three voice mails.
Said if I had to, I'd go to the cops.
MAGNUM: Maybe that's why he didn't come back.
I mean, this isn't really a police matter.
I know, but he needs surgery.
Is this Paul? Yeah.
I mean, looks like it might be a bullet.
So this guy gets shot and then somehow forgets about it? It's unlikely.
I mean, could be a bottle cap or a coin.
Kids swallow things all the time.
Look, while medicine is my area of expertise, finding people That's yours.
I really need your help.
Of course we'll help, pro bono.
Thank you.
But here's the thing.
There's a clock on this.
How much time do we have? Without surgical intervention, the pneumo will likely expand, ultimately causing cardiovascular collapse.
If we don't do something soon, Paul will be dead in a few hours.
Perhaps Paul left the hospital because he doesn't like doctors.
Well, aside from you, I I don't know many people that do.
I mean, you go to the hospital for one thing, right? You end up running a hundred tests and find out you either wasted a bunch of money, or there's six other things wrong with you.
Is that the reason that you refused to go to a doctor for your recent bout of insomnia? Not going to the doctor for something that's gonna fix itself.
Ah, the old "ignore the problem, and it will just go away" strategy, yeah, 'cause that always works.
Listen, if you do change your mind, Ethan's up to speed.
Yeah, apparently.
Magnum, sleep is one of the most important parts of your health, and you're suffering, so I asked a doctor some advice.
Is that a big deal? No.
Anything else on Paul? I pinged his cell.
There's no signal.
Looks like it's been off-line since he left the hospital.
He hasn't made any calls, either.
We should go to his house.
I mean, if I'm not feeling well, it's the first place I go.
Unlike the rest of us, who just go to a doctor.
JOEY: Hurricane was coming, you know, and they closed the Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge.
And I was on the wrong side of it.
(CHUCKLES): How'd you get home? I-I swam.
I got I got cut up on an oyster bed.
It was, in hindsight, not my best idea, you know.
- (CHUCKLES) - Yeah.
When's the last time you were home? (EXHALES) Man, it's been a while, man.
But this is home now.
You know, my two best friends Met 'em in the service They live here, too.
"Best friends" doesn't do it justice.
Those are my brothers.
To the end.
You know you don't have to give me the hard sell, right? - (LAUGHS) - Oh, got me.
I mean, I-I wanted this before I even signed up.
My dad, my uncle, grandad all vets.
And me following in their footsteps means the world to them.
I'm sure they'll be proud.
But what's the draw for you? Lot of reasons, you know? (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) Well, I guess, um I love my country, you know? Joey, do you want to join up for you or for your family? What's the difference? Long as I sign up, right? (INDISTINCT CHATTER) Something wrong with it? No, uh, just kinda full.
That sounds kind of suspicious.
Let me see here.
Oh! No, no, no, no.
That mahi's not even cooked.
Oh, my God, what are you doing? You gotta say something when that happens.
- You know, raw fish can kill you.
- How? It's just sushi, right? No.
Oh, my God, I'm so sorry.
So embarrassing.
I'm sorry, my-my chef, he moved back to Texas when COVID hit, and the new guy, he could use Cooking lessons? Yeah.
(BOTH LAUGH) The bartender go with him? Oh, no, he just stopped showing up.
(LAUGHING) We've got all kinds of problems.
(CHUCKLES) What's so funny? Our inability to retain staff, apparently.
- TC, this is - Suzy.
I remember.
Your dad had a houseboat in the marina, named it after you.
Kind of hard to forget.
I actually just moved in there.
Fell on some hard times, but Rick was kind enough to let me do what I love and pay me for it.
Uh, the wall that we replaced.
The one that Booky plowed through.
Suzy's gonna snazz it up, paint a mural for us.
Of what? It's a surprise.
Rick didn't want to know.
Well, I trust the artist.
You know, I want to leave it to her and her vision.
And I won't let you down.
And I better get back to it, actually.
Uh, thank you for the the meal.
Yeah, well, next time it won't be so bad.
- I promise.
- Okay.
All right.
(CHUCKLING) Suzy, huh? Come on.
We were just talking.
(LAUGHS) How'd your recruiting talk go? Good, mostly.
But there's this one kid named Joey.
I'm kind of worried about his motivation for signing up.
Well, mine was easy: Enlist or do time.
And I wanted to fly, baby.
Why is Joey doing it? To please his family.
I'm not sure I should get involved.
I mean, who's to say what the right reasons are? Well, whatever our motivations were, we both wanted it.
You can't do it for somebody else.
You're gonna have to talk to that kid, lay it down.
Yeah, well, I spoke to the officer candidates as a favor to Mitch.
What's he gonna say if I talk Joey out of it? He's not gonna be happy.
Look, it sucks, but there's sometimes a cost to doing the right thing.
(SIGHS) It doesn't look like anyone's home.
Doesn't appear to be a woman of the house.
I was about to say the same thing.
Looks like Paul and his dad and his brother, maybe? No indication that Paul came home.
Except for his hospital bracelet.
So he did come back.
Well, where'd he go? I don't know.
He didn't make any calls from his cell, but maybe he used the land line.
(PHONE BEEPS) Well, looks like that number was called an hour ago.
Uh, you sure this is the place Paul called? No, I'm only sure that someone from the Wilson home - called a phone at this location.
- I mean, it can't be Paul.
He can't breathe, so he leaves the hospital and orders a muffin? It doesn't make sense.
Only one way to find out.
Excuse me.
Uh, do you know this man? His name is Paul Wilson.
Never seen him before.
Well, maybe you haven't seen him, but we believe he called here about an hour ago.
No one's called me all day.
You must be in the wrong place.
What was that number again? Hang on.
(DIALING) (PHONE RINGING) It's coming from the back.
Hey, no, you're not going back there.
We're trying to save a life.
(PHONE RINGING) (WOMAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) Looks like an underground medical clinic.
See, now that makes sense.
Hey, Doc.
How did you get in here? This is a really nice place.
I'm guessing it's not, uh, what's the word legal.
I am a doctor.
I'm just not licensed in the U.
But these people, they can't afford proper care.
They need me.
My place.
Look, we're not here to give you any trouble.
We are just looking for Paul Wilson.
He was here, wasn't he? He's a good kid.
Just needed help.
Well, we're trying to help him.
If he doesn't get surgery, he could die.
I know.
I said the same thing.
But they wouldn't hear it.
You said "they.
" Paul was with his brother, Tanner.
Well, this isn't exactly an easy place to find.
How did they know to come here? Because I helped them once before, 12 years ago.
(RASPY BREATHING) He got shot.
Bullet's wedged in a tough spot.
Doesn't seem like it hit any vital organs.
I can leave the bullet and patch him up, but I can't guarantee he'll be okay.
I urge you to go to the hospital.
We can't.
Any idea who the shooter is? One of the draws of this place is that I just want to help people, so I don't ask too many questions.
Wilson's child was shot.
What could possibly justify not going straight to a hospital? The doctors find a bullet, they gotta call the cops.
But why would Mr.
Wilson not want the police involved? I don't know.
Maybe that's why Paul took off.
He doesn't want that either.
It's Sarge's birthday.
Oh, sorry, I don't have any cash; You want to spot me? (SCOFFS) (PHONE RINGS) Well, if it isn't the reason why I don't have any cash.
Yes, I'm sorry about that.
I don't actually think I've ever played so well.
So well or so angry? I want a rematch.
HIGGINS: I promise you'll have one.
And I might even let you win.
In exchange for what favor you're about to ask that I may or may not agree to.
Well, okay, there is a patient of Dr.
Shah's You call your boyfriend Dr.
Shah? The kid's name is Paul Wilson.
He's 22.
He needs immediate surgery.
The problem is we can't seem to find him.
I'm running him now.
What's wrong with him? He was shot 12 years ago, and the bullet has now punctured his lung.
He would have been ten years old at the time.
Any idea what happened? No, not yet.
I don't see anything.
You got any more details? He was a kid when he got shot.
Maybe he's got a juvie record.
Yeah, those would be sealed.
Might take some time to look into.
All right, I'll get right on it.
- Thanks, Gordie.
- Thank you.
How does a ten-year-old end up with a bullet inside him? Barring being a criminal, it can't have been intentional.
I mean, drive-by, line of fire.
Accident, maybe? You know what I don't understand is the doctor at the clinic said that Mr.
Wilson was a loving and responsible father.
Why would he not do everything in his power to protect his son? Well, maybe he was trying to protect his son.
- His other son.
- Tanner? Yeah.
I mean, it wouldn't be the first time a couple of kids got a hold of a gun and somebody ended up shot.
Maybe Tanner shot Paul.
Maybe Mr.
Wilson was worried that the police would take Tanner away.
Hey, man.
You were right about this spot, - the swells are great.
- Nice, right? Yeah.
What brings you out here? Ah, I just wanted to talk.
Something wrong? Look, I don't know if it's my place, but since I tried to get you to sign up, I gotta be up-front.
Becoming a Marine for your pops is not a good idea.
I mean, lots of people do stuff to make their parents proud.
Go to law school, join the family business, you know? Yeah, but it's not the same.
See, lives are at stake.
Yours and the Marines you'll be responsible for.
I'm not afraid.
I got this.
Look, it's not about fear, it's about the risk.
Especially if you're not doing this for you.
See, your life has got to be your own, 'cause you're the one that's got to live it.
You feel me? The doctor confirmed it was a bullet.
Paul was shot 12 years ago.
Bullet must have migrated over time, eroded into the lung and punctured it.
So far, we haven't been unable to find any trace of where Paul might have gone after the clinic.
Is there anything else you remember? Something that could indicate where he might go? Well, he was having a lot of trouble breathing.
He didn't say much.
Uh, okay.
Well, I'd I better get back to it.
Uh, Jules, thank you.
Of course.
I'll keep you updated.
Did you tell him what I had for breakfast? Oh, I can assure you, Magnum, Ethan does not care about your dietary habits.
Oh, okay, so just my sleeping habits? I explained my reasons for sharing that.
What is your issue? Why can't we be friends? Why can't Hey, Gordie.
What do you got? There's no record of the shooting.
And Paul Wilson's clean.
His brother Tanner, not so much.
So he's got a jacket? Yep.
Started young.
In and out of juvie.
Did some jail time, too.
He has no phone registered to him.
Address is the dad's house.
How old was Tanner when he started his life of crime? He was about 12.
Okay, right around the same time Paul was shot.
There's more.
That same year, a shopkeeper was killed during a robbery.
Left behind a wife and a young daughter.
Case went cold because there wasn't enough evidence.
You think Tanner killed the shopkeeper? No.
But our prime suspect was Paul and Tanner's father, Henry Wilson.
Okay, so the father commits the murder, two kids find the gun You think Tanner shot Paul? That's the theory we're working with.
Yeah, think about it, right? They go to the hospital, the doctor's gonna find that bullet HPD would've matched the ballistics to the gun that killed the shopkeeper.
- Exactly.
- So Mr.
Wilson wasn't protecting his kids, he was protecting himself.
Now Paul's risking his life to keep his father's secret.
I don't like driving this as much.
Were you planning on transporting Paul in the boot of the 488, or? Could've put you in there.
You know, I have to say, I'm gonna find it hard to contain myself when I meet Mr.
I mean, sacrificing your child for yourself is unforgivable.
It is, but please try, okay? 'Cause we need his help to find Paul.
Look, Katsumoto's definitely going after Wilson for the shopkeeper's murder and we got to get there before he does.
Why can't we be friends? Huh.
Why can't we Do you think he can hear us? Detective.
KATSUMOTO: You're on your way to Henry Wilson's place of work, aren't you? I'll take that as a yes.
You need to turn around, because Mr.
Wilson's left work already, went home for the day.
Are you giving us a head start? Paul's life is at stake.
And HPD wouldn't have a lead on this cold case without you.
Well, uh, thank you.
You're welcome.
Also, Wilson's less likely to be scared off by you than by us.
- I don't want him to run.
- Ah, all right.
So we're helping you, then? Just hope that he comes through, 'cause you got an hour.
After that, HPD's all over him.
Um What did Abby know about me? Hmm? Well, I mean, you seem to have this issue with Ethan and I discussing you, but, I mean, you and Abby were pretty serious for a minute there.
And since it is absolutely normal to discuss your partner with your partner, I mean, surely I must have come up in conversation.
Not at all.
Can I help you? Hello, Mr.
Um, we're private investigators and we're actually looking for your son Paul.
Well, he's not here.
What's this about? Well, this is about the bullet that's been lodged inside him for the last 12 years.
HIGGINS: We also know about the shopkeeper that you murdered.
Are you going to deny it? No.
I'm not.
I've been waiting 12 years for this to catch up to me.
I'm almost relieved that it has.
Was your son shot with the same gun? I'd never done anything like that before.
I needed to feed my kids it got out of hand.
I came home, I put the gun in my nightstand.
He must have seen me.
TANNER: Paul, look what I got.
Is that Dad's? Let me see.
When I heard the gun go off That was the worst day of my life.
But that moment, I made a deal with God that I would never break the law or hurt anybody ever again so long as my boy was okay.
And he was.
Well, he's not anymore.
He's in trouble.
The bullet has migrated and punctured his lung and he'd refused treatment at hospital.
He didn't tell me he was in any pain.
But he knew that this time, I would make him get it fixed properly, and Paul doesn't want to give me up.
Wilson, his condition is worsening, and we need your help to find him.
MAGNUM: Yeah, Paul's cell phone is turned off and uh, there's no registered number for Tanner.
How do you get in contact with him? Uh, well, he has a prepaid cell.
What's she doing? We're trying to track his location to the phone.
Anything? They're at Ethan's house.
I don't understand.
Why would they be at his house? - Come on.
Pick up.
- The clinic doctor said they need a surgeon.
Ethan was the only one they know.
Come on, Ethan.
- ETHAN: You've reached - Damn it.
Voice mail.
Go faster.
We brought you back here to do it.
You have to do it.
You have to listen to me I'm going in.
Hold on.
He has a record.
You have no idea what he's capable of.
Look, shooting his brother really tore him apart and he went down a bad path, but he's trying to do better.
He won't hurt anybody if I'm here.
Just get behind me.
- Okay.
Let him know you're here.
- Tanner! Hey Who the hell are they? We're private investigators.
Shah hired us to help find Paul so he could help save his life.
He's right here, so save him.
You don't have to put a gun on me.
I want to do the surgery.
But I can't do it here, it could kill him.
You won't let that happen.
Tanner, it isn't enough that he's a surgeon.
He needs a sterile environment, he needs anesthesia, - proper instruments.
- You got to listen to them.
We have to get him to the hospital.
PAUL: We can't go.
Yes, you can.
You don't have to protect me anymore.
They'll take you away.
It's time for me to turn myself in, son.
It's what I want.
I won't let you do that.
What if your father was to leave the Island? Our priority was to save Paul's life.
That was the case that we took.
What do you say? TANNER: Here.
This is Dr.
Ethan Shah.
I need an ambulanceYou're gonna make it.
- At 173 Kumuhau Street.
- You hear me? I have a 22-year-old male in severe respiratory distress.
Katsumoto's gonna kill us.
HPD can catch up to Mr.
We couldn't let Paul die.
- TANNER: Paul? Paul! What happened? - He's unconscious.
- No, no, no.
He can't die.
Tools, medical bag, office.
Tanner, move away from him.
Calm down.
He's-he's gonna be okay.
- Jules? - HIGGINS: Here.
- Rip open his shirt.
- Okay.
Whoa, whoa, what are you doing to him? ETHAN: If we don't do a needle decompression, he'll be dead in five minutes.
It's gonna be all right.
Is he okay? It won't last.
We can't wait for EMS.
We have to take him now.
- Okay.
- Jules, legs.
Tension pneumo status post-needle decompression - with temporary relief.
- You can stay here, but you can't come in.
ETHAN: BP dropping.
I need a chest tube set up now.
The only thing to do now is wait.
I need to call Katsumoto.
Got it.
I can't just sit here.
Get a coffee or something.
You want some? I'm good, thank you.
Can't believe you let Wilson get away.
Uh, we we had no other option.
We? No.
Don't pull her into this.
I'm sure this was all you.
Actually, it wasn't.
I made the decision to save a life.
Come on, Gordie.
You're gonna find Wilson.
KATSUMOTO: We put out a BOLO.
So far, nothing.
MITCH: Thanks a lot, pal.
I asked you to help recruit them.
Not talk them out of it.
The kid's not a good candidate.
One coffee don't make you an expert on him.
Anyway, it didn't work.
He was worried that you might've called me, so he came by to reassure me he wants to sign up.
It's fine now.
No, it's not.
Joey couldn't give me one good reason besides making his pops proud.
This ain't some nine-to-five desk job where you can just fail and move on.
- We need officers.
- Yeah, but not just any officers.
We need the right ones.
And you know that's true.
You said it this morning: We don't come out the way we went in.
We can't really know Not if you keep your head in the sand and you don't talk to him.
If I'm wrong okay.
But if I'm right he comes home in a body bag.
Along with the Marines he leads.
Your brother's gonna be fine.
Can I can I see him? Yeah.
Come on.
You are quite something.
Thank you.
No, thanks goes to you.
I couldn't have saved Paul if you two didn't find him.
Now if you could only find Mr.
Think we just did.
Paul's going to be okay.
Thank you.
All of you.
I was never gonna run.
I just had to convince Paul to get the surgery.
Like I should've done 12 years ago.
Before you take me in, can I Dad? Why'd you come back? There's a cop out there.
Listen to me.
I'm going to jail.
I just came back to say goodbye.
No You can't leave us alone.
WILSON: Now, you listen to me.
Now, when you were kids, I couldn't let you get separated and put into the system.
You needed me then.
You are not kids anymore.
And you won't be alone.
TC: So everything worked out with Mitch.
He's gonna call Joey.
That's what I said would happen.
You said: "It sucks, but there's always a cost to doing the right thing.
"Yeah, except there wasn't a cost, so it all worked out.
Just like I said.
I'm done.
- For the day? - No.
Want to see it? - Yeah.
- Uh, yeah.
Is it okay? It's not okay Uh it's incredible.
Hell yeah.
What he said.
So the Chicago The Chicago is for me.
- Yeah.
Then you got North Carolina.
Roxboro and Pettigrew.
Well, Rick mentioned you're a not-so-silent silent partner.
And the original owner, Annette La Mariana Nahinu, was from Brooklyn.
So, New York's for her.
Brooklyn! RICK: This is this is amazing.
I'm-I'm touched.
I H-How did you know some of these things? You talk a lot.
I listen.
TC: Uh, you can't even tell that a van drove through here.
No, you can't.
No, this is this is amazing.
I-I feel like paying you isn't enough thanks.
Do you want to maybe, uh You can keep the cash.
What I need is a job.
I used to tend bar back in art school.
Any chance I could work here? Even part time would help a lot.
You-you want to work here? She wants, she wants to work here.
You can Definitely.
You can start tomorrow.
- Yeah? - RICK: Yes.
You're saving me.
Thank you.
No, thank you.
You're saving us.
See you tomorrow.
Oh, come on.
You like her.
Of course, you do realize that now that she's gonna work for you, she's the only woman on this island that you can't date? Uh That sucks.
But there's a cost to doing the right thing.
I see what you did there.
You're not seriously angry with me that I spoke to Ethan about you not sleeping, are you? I was never angry.
Do you remember when I felt hurt by you and I wasn't truthful about it? Higgy, once again Do you remember? When I made a unilateral decision? Is that what you're talking about? Mm-hmm.
And you said that the only way that this would work is if we were totally truthful.
And this is a two-way street.
Okay, this is gonna sound a little ridiculous.
I can assure you, it won't be more ridiculous than anything that ordinarily comes out of your mouth.
Um You and I have a cone of silence.
And when I tell you something, I expect that what I say to you stays between us.
And now you're in a relationship with somebody and you guys have your own cone.
And I don't want to feel like I have to censor myself or hide things from you because I'm afraid you're gonna tell him what we talk about.
Does that make sense? It makes absolute sense.
I'm really sorry for that.
I promise to be more respectful in the future.
Thank you.
But you have to know that when I'm talking to Ethan about my day, or just conversing with him, it is inevitable that you'll come up.
Because you're a very important part of my day.
Of my life.
Back at you.
