The Good Doctor (2017) s02e12 Episode Script


You hit me once, I hit you back You gave a kick, I gave a slap You smashed a plate over my head Then I set fire to our bed Oh, oh My black eye casts no shadow Your red eye sees nothing Your slaps don't stick, your kicks don't hit So we remain the same - Love sticks, sweat drips - [GRUNTING.]
Break the lock if it don't fit A kick in the teeth is good for some A kiss with a fist is better than none Whoa-oh A kiss with a fist is better than none I broke your jaw once before I spilled your blood upon the floor You broke my leg in retur [SCREAMS.]
Holy crap, Shaun! - [SIGHS.]
- You're a good dancer.
No, I'm not.
So don't be a lurker.
You've gotta give a girl a warning before she makes a total fool out of herself.
I'm sorry.
Why are you even up? You've just gone through hell.
You should be sleeping till noon, then go out for a Bloody Mary Brunch and a credit crashing shopping spree.
Those are all unhealthy ways to cope with stress.
But whatever you choose to do to decompress on your day off, it can't start before 9:00.
And it absolutely cannot involve you sitting around all day reading medical journals.
You've got to get out and do something.
I'm so sorry for pushing you.
But you know I am right.
ANDREWS: How can you investigate a response that's not even over yet? We just began the Terminal Clean.
The Governor believes an immediate D.
review is essential to restore public confidence.
The CDC confirmed the virus originated in Malaysia.
And that there was nothing my staff could've done to prevent the three deaths or Dr.
Lim's infection.
I'm going to need access to every patient record and all staff communication from the moment the first outbreak patient arrived.
Look at you.
Already back at work.
It's either that or watch the news.
And I'd rather be back on ECMO with a rusty cannula.
- Anything you need? - Thanks, but not necessary.
You sure? Magazines, a book, a Maple Bacon doughnut? Yeah, you don't have to play "supportive friend" just because we slept together.
I'm not "playing," I'm being nice.
Which I've done for people I haven't slept with many times in my life.
No doubt.
But until we did, you were always more interested in competing than supporting.
And that's how I prefer it.
I'm not sure that's true, or fair I'm also exhausted, unshowered, and constipated, so if you could shut the door on your way out, I'd really appreciate it.
Will do.
Wake up, Maggie I think I got something to say to you It's late September And I really should be back at school I know I keep you amused [CELLPHONE VIBRATING.]
- Hello? - You up for mimosas? I was just about to head out to Hollander's, and I thought you might want to join me.
You thought I might want to join you for mimosas? Why not? Because we don't like each other? We don't really know each other.
Hollander's has the absolute best brunch in San Jose.
I'll drive.
I'll buy.
Morgan, how about you just cut to what it is you really want.
What else are you gonna do? Sit around, play guitar, and sing into your phone? - How did you know what I was doing? - I didn't.
But that's what your profile on a certain dating app says - you like to do on your days off? - Are you stalking me? One mimosa and I'll tell you the fake profile I use for "oppo research.
" The guy I used for my pic is gorgeous.
You really want to risk swiping right on me? I'll drive myself.
It'll be fun.
Meet you in an hour.
Call me every night.
I already said I would.
- Okay.
Thanks for letting me stop by.
No problem.
Okay, well Bye.
Mia, wait.
Why don't you stay and fly back with Kellan on Sunday? I know it's crazy, but it's been so long since we've all been together.
Like old times.
I think that virus may've affected your memory.
Come on.
Hang with us a bit.
Just take a break for a few days.
I'm sure you could use one.
It does sound nice.
But I can't.
Have a safe flight.
But I could take a later flight out tonight.
What are you doing? I am buttoning my shirt.
The procedure was a success.
The CSF leak was fixed.
What are you doing here? Thought this was your day off.
Lea said I'm not allowed to read medical journals, and Dr.
Blaize said you can't be discharged for two days.
Ah, yes, and yet the U.
Constitution says I can leave whenever I want.
I am sick and tired of being sick.
I'm sick and tired of being around sick people.
Surgery and radiation and blood draws, CT's, MRIs I've had it.
I need a break.
If you delay the chemotherapy, you will weaken its effectiveness.
It'll be fine.
Y-You can't quit.
I'm not quitting, Shaun! I'm just [SIGHS.]
I appreciate your concern, but you just have no idea.
No, it hasn't had time to heal.
If it leaks, it would be bad.
You could develop a subdural hematoma And yet if I stay one more minute in this place, I will lose my mind.
Where are you going? Anywhere I don't smell iodoform.
- I'm coming with you.
- You don't have to come with me.
I don't like that smell either.
But where are we going? Are we friends? - Yes.
- Why? 'Cause I helped you through school, because I helped you get a job? Or is it because neither one of us have any other friends? - You have lots of friends.
- Who? And if I did, why did I have somebody drive me around who I barely know and who I don't really like very much? And by the way, why doesn't she have any other friends besides you? She does.
She goes out with people all the time.
And yet she slept on your floor for a month.
So unless the people she goes out with are homeless Hello, Lea.
LEA: You better not be studying.
- I'm not.
- Good.
You want to come have lunch with me? Lea wants us to have lunch with her.
Wait, us? Who are you with? Dr.
Glassy can come, too.
Glassy never said he wanted to come.
Tell him the food at my office is amazing.
She says that the food at her I'm not hungry! Go.
You just go.
I can't come.
Come on, Shaun.
Please? I'm having a really crappy day, and you're, like, my only friend.
You know what? I changed my mind.
I would love to come and have lunch with your friend Lea.
Yes! Okay, I will text you guys the address.
Diego Luis.
My pseudonym.
I think Latin names are sexy.
You might want to pace yourself.
We don't even have the menu yet.
I'll be fine.
I'm really sorry about that EMT.
Tyler, right? I heard you guys were kinda close.
Well, you heard wrong.
I barely even knew him.
But as long as I'm here.
If you want to talk about I don't.
I wanted a brunch partner.
Not a shrink.
I'm not trying to be a shrink.
I'm trying to be a decent human being.
Of course you are.
Claire to the rescue.
What is your problem? You literally blackmailed me to be here, and now you have the nerve to act like I am the one [CELLPHONE VIBRATING.]
I'm gonna take this outside.
If you wanna just get the check that's fine with me.
- Ho! - Yeah! Damn, I'm gonna have to wear a helmet next time I pitch to you.
- Yeah! - There you go.
You seeing anyone? Sorry, don't mean to interrogate.
It's all right.
And no, I'm not.
What about you? Yeah, but it's nothing serious.
It's okay if it is.
I'd tell you if it was.
You don't have to tell me anything.
It's none of my business.
Could you imagine us ever getting back together? Yeah, sure.
I mean, the same way I can imagine what it's like to walk across hot coals or to be waterboarded or attacked by a great white All right, I get it.
Very funny.
Andrews, can I help you? I just wanted to make sure you have everything you need.
Yes, we do.
Thank you.
Any update? Anything I should know? It's best if we wait until the investigation is complete before discussing any findings.
You already have findings? - None that I'm prepared to discuss.
- Okay.
Although, I was a bit surprised to learn that you have a part-time Chief of Surgery.
What're you talking about? I was here around the clock.
In your role as Chief of Surgery or as the hospital's President? My dual role was a benefit.
It sped up decision-making and ensured that there was no miscommunication between administration and the surgical staff.
Not to mention this is none of your business.
has no oversight of our management structure.
If it adversely affects patient care Oh, it didn't.
And it never has.
You bureaucrats have no idea how a hospital runs or what doctors and nurses have to do on a daily basis to provide optimum care for patients.
And you can tell that to the Governor.
- I have to go.
- Mimosas.
That was the deal.
I've had one.
You've had one quarter.
Yeah, well, my mom is getting evicted.
I'll come along.
I'm not lying.
I have to help her move.
- I could use the exercise.
- No.
- Two cars are better than one.
- Stop.
What is going on? You were right.
Tyler's death was upsetting.
I can carry a lot.
And I'm great with moms.
She doesn't think I can be both President and Chief of Surgery.
Really? You agree with her? I never was a fan of your staying on as Chief after your promotion.
You really think anything would've been different if someone else was Chief during the outbreak? You used to have more time to manage scheduling issues.
And staffing shortage did complicate our response.
Every hospital in this country is facing a nursing shortage.
I'm not gonna reverse my decision now.
I'd look like an indecisive fool.
Or like someone who's realized they've made a mistake and reconsidered.
How are you not all 300 pounds? We also have an amazing gym, a basketball court, and an ice rink.
You have a very generous boss.
And idiot investors.
The founder's from Minnesota.
He's obsessed with hockey, so there's pickup at lunch and a beer league after work.
- No Flying Glass Elevators? - Get anything you want.
There's also a pasta bar and a deli and Spanish tapas next door.
And then we'll meet back out in the atrium for our feast.
Any of your co-workers gonna be joining us? Why? I don't know.
Just trying to be social.
You didn't want to come, then you did.
What changed? She always this suspicious? [CHUCKLES.]
I'm in the mood for Thai.
- Shaun? - No, thank you.
- Sherlock? - No.
Okay, so I'll see you two in a few.
By the way, the lobster rolls are amazing.
Thank you.
Since when do you eat bratwurst? Oh, thought I'd try something new.
- You a Bulls fan, Breeze? - Bulls? Oh, no, that's from when I played South by Southwest with Danny Attie's band.
That was Austin.
The Bulls are from Chicago.
Mom, who else is living here? It's someone else's mug, but he is not living here.
He just dropped you off after a date and left his coffee mug and bratwurst behind by mistake? What do you guys care? Okay, I am not a child.
It's my damn apartment.
Yeah, and it was my money that was supposed to be paying for it.
What was it this time? You guys were gonna start a new record label? A restaurant? What? I didn't rip you off.
And he didn't rip me off.
I was just a little late.
So you're getting evicted because your landlord is a stickler for prompt payments.
It's the truth.
Mom, why the hell do you have to get out of here so fast? There is no way it's because of a mean landlord.
Because he beat my ass, and I'm terrified that he's gonna do it again.
And I'm not going to the cops.
I just want to get the hell out of this apartment and never come back.
That's it.
Nananana-nananana- nananana-nananana, nananana-nananana- nananana-nananana.
Putting's all about process.
Apparently not.
Front nine's for posers.
Back nine's for closers.
You just know I hate that movie, and you're trying to get me off my game.
- But it's not gonna work.
So, what's she do? This woman you're not serious about? [SIGHS.]
Come on.
You started it.
And it was a mistake.
All right, what about work? Kellan said one of the other residents has autism? Yeah.
So what's he like? He's a bit immature.
But nice.
Wow, I feel like I totally know him now.
Sorry, I just don't want to talk about work.
Or your personal life.
But I would like to talk about something other than your putting process.
What's going on in your life? How are you doing? I'm doing great.
Everything's fine.
Come on, Mia.
I'm just trying to relax.
Have some fun.
This is exactly why we broke up.
That's not how I remember it.
I made a mistake.
But we were broken long before that.
'Cause I didn't like to talk about work? You decided to leave the police force and become a doctor, and the first I heard of it is when you told me you got into med school.
Most people would think that's a step up.
Be supportive.
How could I support a man I never saw? And when I did see you, we didn't talk.
It's like everything in your life can only be divulged on a "need to know" basis.
And I never needed to know.
Found this in the trash.
An old pay stub for Carnell Hunter.
- I say we pay him a visit.
- And do what? Give him a stern lecture that'll teach him to respect women? We need to make it clear that abusing, stalking, or in any way bothering your mom ever again will be more trouble than it's worth.
You're a bit out of your element here.
We're not dealing with some frat boy or creepy surgeon.
The guys my mom dates are psychos.
So you just want to do nothing? Let him get away with it? Is she doesn't want to involve the police, there's nothing we can do about it.
Let's just help her get out of this mess and be done with it.
- No.
I'm not as clueless as you think.
- [SIGHS.]
I had a stalker in med school.
The guy was scary.
Which is why now I never go anywhere without this.
What the hell? Don't worry.
It's legal.
I have a C.
So what're you gonna do? Pop a cap in his ass? No.
We just need to send him a message.
And studies have shown that men are more likely to be visual learners.
Give me your key.
- Why? - I want to lock this.
We're leaving the car together.
- How am I gonna get it? - Key.
You're the one who insisted the guy was so dangerous.
I'm sure he is.
But you with a gun is even more frightening.
Go ahead.
How come you're St.
Claire with everyone but your mom? Stop calling me St.
And you don't know my mom.
I know it's not her fault she's bipolar.
Feeling any better? Actually, I am.
Nothing like a good B.
to turn a frown upside down.
I've been thinking about what you said this morning.
About how competitive I always am.
And the more I think about it, the angrier I get.
All I was trying to say I have been nothing but professional with you.
And for the record, you're the one who invited me out for drinks.
You're the one who wanted to go back to my apartment.
And now you're the one who's acting differently just because we had sex.
You need to project more, use your diaphragm if you really want the entire hospital to hear you.
I definitely won't go out of my way to be nice to you again.
He doesn't trust me.
I mean, why? Is he that way with everybody or just me? Can you help me convince him to start his chemotherapy on schedule? You want me to convince a brain surgeon, who doesn't like me, that I know the best way to treat his tumor? Yes.
Maybe just be supportive, Shaun.
He just wants some time.
He doesn't have time.
You don't understand.
Actually, I do understand.
And I'm getting really tired of people treating me like I don't.
I know how you feel.
Where's your food? Too many options.
I got confused.
You find out why no one wants to eat with me? Still snooping.
We all need to do something fun.
Either of you need a refill? No, thanks.
I'm good.
Neither do I.
But I'm gonna get one anyways.
I'll be in the arcade when you two are done with whatever you need to deal with.
Regretting your invite now? No.
It's just, um Maybe we should think about trying to get back together.
Are you insane? We can't even spend half a day together without a fight.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
I do respect you.
Which is exactly why I need you back in my life.
To remind me who I can be.
Come on, Alex.
You've just been through a traumatic experience.
You're exhausted and lonely.
But I love you.
Just tell me what I need to do, and I'll do it.
Thank you.
I know how hard it is for you to open up.
I love you, too.
But I think it's best if we just keep moving forward with our lives.
Carnell Hunter? - Yeah? - We need to talk.
Yeah, well, I need to do my job.
So unless you got a badge, I ain't interested.
Time for a break.
Because we need to tell you something, and we want to make sure you're listening.
Well, I'd get out of my face if I were you.
Or what? You gonna beat my ass? Who the hell are you? Breeze Browne is my mom.
She's moving out of the apartment today.
And she never wants to see you again.
What are you talking about? You're a disgusting, pathetically weak coward.
You know it.
And every woman you've ever been with knows it, too.
I don't know what you're talking about, but I would never lay my hands on a woman.
Especially Breeze.
I mean, she's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
I love her.
You guys all memorize the same speech, don't you? Why do you think I asked her to marry me? Oh, she didn't tell you? What did she tell you? You had no right to butt in.
The poor guy was almost in tears.
Which is exactly why I couldn't tell him to his face.
He's just He's so darn sensitive about everything.
CLAIRE: So you thought disappearing into the night would make it easier for him? I know, you're right.
It's just [SIGHS.]
I don't want to marry him.
So tell him you're not ready.
You want to take things slower.
He's one of the sweetest men I've ever met.
So why are you trying to ghost him? I don't know.
Mom [SIGHS.]
Andrews, we have some findings.
I'm excited to hear them.
And I just wanted to say, with regard to the staffing issu I wouldn't worry about that anymore.
Uh, Dr.
Audrey Lim non-consensually dosed a man who was not even a patient with Haldol, which is not only unethical, it's a crime.
And Dr.
Neil Melendez ignored a written DNR, which is also a crime.
And I've just reviewed a video showing Dr.
Shaun Murphy curled up on the E.
floor in the fetal position.
Murphy has autism, which on extremely rare occasions impacts his Ability to provide the proper standard of care? I'll be recommending all three to the State Medical Board for license suspension.
Bumper cars? I'd rather go ice skating.
I don't want to do either.
All right, these aren't bumper cars, smartass.
They're electric sprint-karts.
NASCAR drivers train in them.
We use them to test our device prototypes, and they haul ass.
This is a very bad idea.
If the skull base repair doesn't hold I could get a subdural hematoma.
- Yes, we've established that.
- I don't know what that means.
But I do know both of you drove on the freeway to get here.
If it's safe, why do we have to wear Enough negativity.
Both of you.
You didn't blow off Blaize just to go out for a walk or a nice lunch.
It's time to crank up the volume on this day off.
I don't want to drive a go-kart.
I don't believe you.
I think you do want to drive a go-kart.
You just don't want me to drive a go-kart.
You know what? I'm in.
I live my life in the city There's no easy way out The day's moving just too fast for me I need some time in the sunshine [BEEPING.]
I've got to slow it right down The day's moving just too fast for me I live my life for the stars that shine People say it's just a waste of time Then they said I should feed my head That to me was just a day in bed I'll take my car and drive real far They're not concerned about the way we are In my mind, my dreams are real Now we're concerned about the way I feel Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star You're not down with who I am Look at you now, you're all in my hands tonight [TIRES SQUEAL.]
Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star It's just rock 'n' roll It's just rock 'n' roll [ALARM BLARING.]
That was awesome.
I still beat your ass, but you improved your time every lap.
Thank you.
You did, too, Shaun.
- Are you okay? - [EXHALES SHARPLY.]
- Yeah, I'm fine.
- You sure? You look a little glassy-eyed, Glassy.
No, I think I just have something in my eye.
Do you have any dizziness or a metallic taste? I'm fine, Shaun.
I'm actually fine.
I'm You know what? I'm better than fine.
I'm good.
He's good.
Yes! Come on, Shaun.
ANDREWS: I was wrong.
From the moment we met, my defensiveness was unprofessional and my subsequent behavior even worse.
I was not aware Dr.
Lim dosed a hospital visitor.
Or that Dr.
Melendez violated a DNR.
But that's my fault.
Neither of them made any attempt to hide their actions.
Because they both are totally committed to doing whatever it takes to provide the utmost care for their patients.
Practicing medicine requires doctors to make judgments.
Not just follow rules.
Two human beings who would otherwise be dead are alive because of rules broken by Lim and Melendez.
They were doing their jobs.
They shouldn't be punished for that.
They should be applauded.
I'll be notifying the State Board of our findings.
It'll then be up to those doctors to decide.
They'll leave us bureaucrats out of it.
See you at the hearing.
I screwed up.
No, you did the right thing.
We both did.
I wasn't talking about this stupid investigation.
I was talking about us.
Ever since my divorce, I can't help but think [SIGHS.]
no matter how real this feels, it's not.
I have feelings for you.
I have for a long time.
And it scares me.
But I don't want the night we spent together to be our last.
I feel the same way.
But I'm not sure it's it's a good idea.
Especially now since we're both gonna be under a microscope.
Yeah, that is true.
Of course, if, for the time being, we just made sure that Andrews and everyone else doesn't know Interesting idea.
Good night, Neil.
Good night, Audrey.
Thank you.
I'm glad you were here.
It helped.
No problem.
And also, um, you're not clueless.
I am.
You carry a gun.
And you practically dared that guy to take a swing at you.
I volunteered at a battered women's shelter in med school, and I'm not an expert, and I'm definitely not trying to be a shrink, but if you ever need someone to talk to.
About anything.
Thank you.
It was a good day.
I need to return the favor, have you meet my mom.
It's a date.
I decided not to postpone the chemo.
That's a good idea.
In fact, I'm gonna speed it up.
I'm gonna go for a-a much more aggressive regimen.
- But Dr.
Blaize - Dr.
Blaize will have to agree.
Or I'll get another doctor.
I want to get this over with.
I want to have more days like today.
And you should do the same.
- I don't have cancer.
- Exactly.
You have no excuse.
Lea's okay, huh? She gets you.
I get her, too.
She's a good friend.
You think she'll ever be more than that? She only wants to be my friend.
She made that very clear.
You're a good man, you know.
Deserve to be happy.
Well, thanks again for staying.
It was nice.
It was.
Well, bye.
You forget something? No.
Maybe you're right.
We could try to slowly and cautiously test the waters.
I would love that.
Maybe in a couple weeks I could come back for a weekend.
On my own.
I'll call you.
LEA: Shaun? I thought you were gonna hang with Glassy tonight.
I did.
But he got tired.
Is there any more beer? I'd like to try one.
Yeah, there's more in the fridge.
How many beers have you drunk? Just this one.
Why? Oh, no.
Um that's Jake's.
Jake, meet my totally cool roomie, Shaun Murphy.
Shaun, meet Jake.
It's nice to meet you.
Uh, Lea's told me a lot about you.
He's such a sweetheart.
Well, we gotta run.
Jake's taking me to Death Cab for Cutie.
Take it easy, Shaun.
And don't wait up.
We're probably gonna be out late.
We've seen the holy, the lonely, the sinners and Been to the promise, the garden, the wasteland Oh, the truth of it all We rise and we fall We hold on, we hold on When we fight, when we lie, when the weakness shows When we laugh, when we cry, when it's all exposed The truth of it all We rise and we fall We hold on, we hold on We hold on Hold on We hold on Hold on Oh, oh, love, we hold on together We scream like sisters and brothers, drew hard lines We love like star crossed, blind eyes, seeing light - [CHUCKLES.]
- Oh, oh, the truth of it all We rise and we fall - We hold on, we hold on - [BREATHES DEEPLY.]
We hold on Hold on We hold on Hold on Oh, oh, love, we hold on together When we fight, when we lie, when the weakness shows When we laugh, when we cry, when it's all exposed The truth of it all We rise and we fall We hold on, we hold on
