Sebastian Fitzek's Therapy (2023) s01e03 Episode Script


It's a nightmare.
I hardly dare to leave the house.
How long has this been going on?
Since about a year ago.
I can no longer work.
I just can't.
When you see him.
I mean, when he's around
Does he do anything?
He just stands there and looks at me.
Is he here now?
He's behind you.
How often do you experience this?
He follows me around every day.
- At night as well?
- No.
Is that good?
At least he lets you sleep.
I still hardly get any sleep.
You said you first saw him
about a year ago.
- Do you remember what you did that day?
- I was out shopping.
Then I had lunch with my ex-husband.
When exactly did you see him?
After I'd said goodbye to my ex-husband.
He was on the other side of the street.
- During the day?
- Yes.
Do you think it has to do with my ex?
I don't think so.
I'd like to try something.
Is he still here?
No. He's gone now.
He's standing right in front of me.
How did you do that?
I know where we can go. Amsterdam!
The coolest city in the world.
You said so yourself.
What if you get sick again?
I didn't get sick last time.
Okay Do you have any cash?
I have 35 euros.
That's not even enough
for the train ticket.
I have to get away.
You're in luck!
I have Daddy's credit card.
Are you crazy?
It was just lying around.
You have what's called
Charles Bonnet syndrome.
That means your optic nerve
is likely damaged.
Your brain tricks you into thinking
you're seeing things.
Darkness can prevent these hallucinations.
You know
We sometimes see things that are not real.
The damage may have various causes.
I'll refer you to a radiologist.
He'll do an MRI scan of your head
and we'll look at the results together.
Until then, please take one of these pills
every day in the morning.
They will take away the stress.
- Why do I see this man specifically?
- I hate you!
We can talk about that shortly.
One moment.
- I don't want to talk to you!
- It's your doing.
- I don't want any more discussions.
- Just leave me alone! I hate you!
Hey, Isabell. Can you be a bit quieter?
- Tell that to your daughter.
- What's going on?
I caught Josy video-chatting with Mila.
- I thought you took her phone!
- I did.
It's locked in my dresser upstairs.
Apparently Mila gave her
another phone at school.
Now what?
She's grounded for another week.
I'll add another one
if she continues like this.
Do you think that'll help?
Why don't you try
to get your daughter under control?
Let's see how far you'll get.
- Where did it go? Did you see anything?
- No idea.
Hold the weapon using both hands.
Not like that. You don't want to look
like you're praying.
The slide would go over your thumb.
It hurts and it's bad for accuracy.
Grab the gun with your right hand
and put it on your left.
Yes. Now point slightly above your target.
Breathe in.
When you breathe out, slowly lower the gun
and fire at the right moment.
Well Let's try something else.
Hold the gun with both hands.
Close your eyes.
Go on. Close them.
Keep them closed.
Lift your gun and point it at your target.
Now imagine it's not a chair,
but the person who kidnapped Josy.
Calm your breath. Slowly.
Much better.
Hey, can you throw the ball back?
Come on, throw the ball back.
Come on, move it. We want to play.
Come on, throw it.
Come on!
Hey, you loser! Make an effort, will you?
Fuck you.
You want trouble?
- Fuck off.
- Do you want trouble?
Yeah, on Saturday.
I know that we invited people.
Everyone brings a case.
Okay. See you later.
Excuse me.
Can I use your phone?
I need to make a call.
Some soup? Something warm?
- Thank you so much.
- Excuse me.
It's Dr. Roth.
Dr. Roth. Today's Saturday.
I know.
But I'm kind of in an emergency situation.
I don't get paid enough
to deal with emergencies on the weekends.
Can you pick me up?
I'm I'm not doing so well.
Where are you?
At Holzmarkt, under the bridge.
Pick me up here.
Were you robbed by a dealer?
As you can see.
I have a tip for you.
No need to risk your skin in dark corners
for drugs. You know Telegram?
You can get your heart's desire.
Free delivery.
- EscobarExpressBerlin24/7.
- Yes.
If you won't see a doctor,
at least go to the police.
There were no witnesses.
You can't have many friends
if you had to call me.
- Are you feeling better?
- Yeah.
- Do you have a first aid kit somewhere?
- What?
- A first aid kit.
- Maybe in the bathroom.
It's nice and cozy here.
It's just temporary.
You should get a CT scan done
in case it's more than a concussion.
It's nothing.
I hear that rather often.
And then the complaining starts.
- Just go.
- Sit down.
I haven't done anything yet.
Thank you.
I'll wash my hands and go.
I don't have any friends.
My wife had friends.
I just had colleagues.
And none of them could stand me.
Well. Not much has changed.
Plants need light and water.
You know that, right?
They need care and to be talked to.
Same as any living thing.
Why do you have a plant if you
How are you?
Good. Tired.
Then lie down. Get some rest.
Mila's going to the movies tonight.
We arranged it a few weeks ago.
She'll go again.
Yeah, sure.
Dad, no one watches a movie twice.
I saw E.T. five times.
I'll be home late tonight.
Food's in the fridge.
I love you both.
We love you too.
Would you like to go out?
Where to?
- Thanks.
- What's this?
Real-life Finding Nemo?
I'm not eight anymore.
Wait and see.
- It's an aquarium. What's there to see?
- Enjoy.
They survive by swimming in groups.
Alone, they'd be eaten.
They lose one or two,
but the core of the family survives.
Yes, I'm coming.
Mr. Larenz? Do you know what time it is?
- Is she here?
- Yes.
Hey. Hey, wait!
You can't go in there.
- Mr. Larenz!
- Ms. Spiegel, open up.
Open the door or I'll kick it down!
You took your time.
Tell me the truth. Now.
Which truth?
Or mine?
- You kidnapped my daughter!
- Jesus
Did I?
Stop playing games!
But you like playing along.
Mr. Larenz, please!
I think you need therapy more than I do.
See this?
What is this?
A hammer.
The hammer she bought at your store.
My store?
She beat my dog to death with this hammer.
What dog?
Mr. Larenz. Don't get too sad.
We don't sell tools at the store.
Don't lie to me.
I'm not lying.
On the day I arrived
or the day after that,
you said Anna Spiegel had asked about me
and had bought a hammer.
Mr. Larenz, listen to me. Please.
We don't sell tools at the store.
Mr. Larenz.
Please, Mr. Larenz!
It was
It was right here.
Mr. Larenz.
I'd like to be a John Dory.
Why that one?
It lives alone,
hides in the sand,
and hunts from there as well.
We learned that in biology.
I'd like to be one of them.
It wasn't a bad idea
to come here after all.
See? Sometimes your dad has good ideas.
Look at that one.
Hey. Josy!
Shit. Josy!
Please call a doctor. I need a doctor.
Thank you.
- Hello.
- Hello.
Can I speak to Professor Gessl?
He's not in his office right now.
What is it about?
I'd rather tell him myself. Thanks.
You want me to fire him
just because you don't like him?
Surely you can do something about him.
- Did you know Roth appeared
- Professor.
in front of the ethics committee
because of his methods?
Really? And?
And nothing.
A warning and a few weeks' holiday.
I couldn't take a look at the minutes.
I'll talk to Merkt.
Perhaps he can do something.
Professor Gessl. Sorry to disturb you.
Yes, Ms. Mergentheimer?
I'd like to show you something.
Show me what?
In private.
I'm in the middle of a conversation.
If this is about my assistant's successor,
I haven't decided yet.
No, that sounds right.
Yes, exactly.
Was this from you?
It's lovely.
There's a card.
"Thank you. Roth."
You're a poet.
- There you go.
- Thank you.
Thilo. Nice to see you.
How is it like to be retired?
You get lazy.
Pruning roses isn't really fulfilling.
I miss you all.
I didn't think I would.
We miss you too.
Didn't think we would either.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Spill the beans. Why are you here?
- I wanted to see you again.
- Nonsense.
Your successor is causing us
a lot of headache.
Really? In what sense?
Roth doesn't stick to the rules.
Is he violating any ethical principles?
He has a tendency to push the limits.
That's not forbidden.
He caused unrest at the hospital.
I've been asking myself
why you recommended him so strongly.
Roth is in a very different league
than you and I.
That can mean all sorts of things.
I think it's a clear statement.
What do you know about
the ethics committee business
from years ago?
What everyone else knows.
Nothing concrete. A lot of rumors.
It can't have been anything serious.
What are you not telling me?
I can only advise you.
Don't get in his way.
- Marte, this is a bad time. Can I
- No. Now.
Did you sign the consent form?
Which one?
The one I've been asking you
to sign for weeks.
Mila's going on a school trip to London.
I'll do it when I get home. I promise.
I want that form by tomorrow.
Otherwise your daughter can't go.
You wouldn't want that.
I have to go.
- Got it. Cash only.
- Okay. When?
- At 10 p.m.
- Okay.
You made yourself comfortable.
You said I should make myself at home.
So I thought I'd do that.
I heard you were at the Ankerhof Hotel.
Bentje said you threatened Anna Spiegel?
What do you think, Halberstaedt?
I wasn't there.
My dog was beaten to death.
With this hammer.
Sindbad. You told me.
One of you is lying.
Viktor. How long do you want
to go on like this?
Whose side are you on?
What are you saying?
I was in your garage.
- Yes?
- Your tool kit
is missing this hammer.
Exactly this one. Explain that to me.
Everyone here has a hammer like that.
You're lying!
We both had a tough day.
I've been reinforcing the fences
for the storm since this morning.
Please. Before something happens
that we would both regret,
look in my backpack. Here.
Go ahead.
Don't you want to sleep
on my couch tonight?
It would do you good.
Tomorrow we can consider
what to do about Anna Spiegel.
Josy! What happened?
Nothing. Everything's fine.
- But you're in the ER
- Isabell. She fainted. That's all.
The doctor said everything's fine.
We're just waiting for test results.
What were you doing?
Were you in the garden?
- Jumping
- Don't make such a fuss, mom.
I'm fine.
It's embarrassing.
- Why are we here?
- What do you mean?
Why are we at this hospital?
I had to drive across town to get here.
- Viktor, you didn't
- Come.
- You didn't
- Hey!
She was sad.
She wasn't allowed to go to the movies.
I wanted to cheer her up.
We went to the aquarium.
This was the last time.
You endangered the life of my daughter.
This ends now!
She's my daughter too!
Do you understand?
Please let go of me.
- Hello.
- Hi.
China Express?
- What?
- China Express.
No. Do you have a cigarette?
- No.
- Shit, man.
China Express, cash payment?
Here. Careful. It's hot.
If you like it, give us a good rating.
See you next time.
I don't understand
why this has to happen now.
- He's not even 50 years old.
- Isabell, I
I had clients
who fell off a bike at 35 and died.
If the inheritance isn't set up,
things can get difficult later.
Can we start?
I want to get it over and done with.
It's all pretty standard.
I listed your capital.
Shares, assets, properties,
life insurance and so on.
Where's the life insurance?
Under assets.
The beneficiary is Isabell,
as we previously agreed upon.
Yes. I see it.
In case of your death,
Isabell and Josy each get 50 percent
of your entire capital.
If you die before Josy is of age,
which nobody wants,
Isabell will manage it
until Josy turns 18.
What do you mean, "no"?
If that happens, I want a trustee
to take care of Josy's share.
Do you need time to think it over?
There's no going back.
No, Wolfgang.
If Viktor wants this, that's how it goes.
Who are you considering?
I'm sorry. I have to go.
Let me know when it's ready to sign.
Did something happen between you?
I don't know what's going on with him.
I'm sorry.
What happened to you?
Don't look at me like that.
The door was unlocked.
Here. Sit down.
I think you're having a nervous breakdown.
I'm not having a nervous breakdown.
It makes no sense.
What doesn't make sense?
The definition of a nervous breakdown.
Don't tell me what a breakdown is!
Doctors are the worst patients.
What did you put in the tea?
You poisoned me.
Mr. Larenz, look at me.
Look at me!
I did not poison you.
And I didn't beat your dog to death.
Do you understand?
- Everything will be okay.
- You
I want to help you. Believe me.
I don't believe you.
What did you do to my daughter?
God, you're burning up.
Dad, where are we going?
- Everything will be fine.
- Yes.
Everything will be fine.
May I?
I would buckle up if I were you.
What are you doing?
Hold on tight.
Everything will be fine.
What are you doing here?
I was about to ask you that.
I thought you stored
family souvenirs here.
What's wrong with you?
The rats are in an induced coma.
They're not dead.
Get rid of them or I'll report this.
No, no, no. I
I've been trying to find the right
medication to wake them up.
- I don't give a damn about your reasons.
- Please.
- I just need Give me a few more weeks.
- You have until tomorrow.
Or you'll be in trouble. Serious trouble.
Listen, I
Tomorrow morning.
You are awake.
Ms. Spiegel?
Do you recognize it?
Yes. This
This is my childhood bedroom.
What else?
What do you remember?
