The Resident (2018) s02e18 Episode Script

Emergency Contact

1 Previously on The Resident You're not wearing a ring.
I haven't made my decision yet.
You love Micah.
You love Conrad.
You're not getting married.
You know why I stay, don't you? You're here.
We make a great team.
KIT: Don't you look dapper? - I could say the same thing - Shall we? One of my investigators was able to locate a former QuoVadis employee who witnessed fraud at the company.
Will they come forward? (LOW CHATTER) CONRAD: A special M&M? Run by Bell.
With the entire board present.
Why? Man, I wish I brought popcorn.
Maybe we're gonna get an update on QuoVadis.
There's nothing to update.
QuoVadis is dead.
We killed it.
Gloriously.
Take your seats, please.
I called you here today because we have an unusual patient to discuss: Chastain Park Memorial.
Our speaker will explain exactly how Chastain fell victim to an unscrupulous device company.
Former QuoVadis device rep, Julian Booth.
Did you know? I thought she was dead.
Thank you, Dr.
Bell, for having me here.
I look out today and I see dedicated doctors and nurses who come to work each day to heal their patients.
That was my mission as well.
But, like Chastain, I was misled by QuoVadis.
The results were harm and, in some cases death.
And the most frightening thing is the fraud committed by QuoVadis was far too easy to accomplish.
And that is why I'm here today so that, moving forward, we can make sure the devices put into Chastain patients heal instead of harm.
I can't believe that you're here.
What happened to you? Gordon's bodyguards were following me.
I lost control of the car and I crashed into the river.
Almost drowned, but managed to get out and swim to safety.
Yeah, but where have you been this whole time? Hiding out in my parents' house in Savannah.
Why didn't you just let me know where you were? I was afraid of what Gordon would do if he found out where I was.
And I I thought you'd be in Silicon Valley.
No.
I didn't marry Priya.
I'm sorry.
It was for the best.
Julian, there is something that we need to talk about that can't wait.
- Your cat.
- What? I've been taking care of him.
You have Bailey? Wow.
Uh, thank you.
Uh, so my shift is over.
If you want to come by, reunite with Bailey, - and talk some more - (LAUGHS) Sure.
I'd love to talk.
You shake me like a tambourine Like a tambourine, like a tambourine Yeah, you shake me like a tambourine Like a tambourine, like a tambourine, yeah Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh Oh, oh Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh Oh, oh Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh.
(BAILEY MEOWS) No ring on your finger.
You still haven't given Micah your answer? I make decisions based on rational thought, long-term analysis, and coldhearted logic.
That takes time.
Emotion needs to factor into that, too.
Talk later.
Come on, you can't dodge Micah forever.
He deserves an answer.
I'll handle my situation with Micah - if you handle yours with Alec.
- What situation? You're never at the clinic when he's there.
You're avoiding him.
Why? - Talk later.
- Mm-hmm.
- Am I night owl or an early bird? - CARA: Uh-huh.
Well, I guess it depends on the company.
And how is the company so far? (LAUGHS) Let me just say I'm here for you.
Okay.
How do you feel about co-pays? - Well - (BELL DINGS) - Are you single? - (CONRAD LAUGHS) Uh, I think you're in the wrong place.
This isn't really speed dating.
We're helping patients find doctors.
Oh, I know.
But my mom's been begging me to find a nice doctor to bring home, so No.
Uh, just - No.
- Okay.
- Craziest disease I've ever treated? - (BELL DINGS) The weirdest place I've practiced medicine.
(BELL DINGS) Valerie, right? That gymnast training for the Olympics.
Doctors who listen and retain information.
- It's like Christmas.
- (CHUCKLES) Look, uh, my whole life has been about getting into the Olympics.
I moved away from my family to train at the best club, sacrificed having friends, delayed going to college.
But a few weeks ago, I had some shortness of breath and dizziness that came out of nowhere.
And I sprained my calf a few days ago, but it could be because of the extra training hours.
Well, to be safe, we could examine you.
(TONGUE CLICKS) But which doctor to choose? Two for the price of one.
Let's see how this shakes out.
So, what's wrong with me? I didn't hear any murmurs in your heart - and your lungs sound clear.
- No signs of edema.
We'll do a CBC to rule out anemia.
We'll run an EKG to have a look at your heart.
Valerie, you did good, girl.
(LAUGHTER) Any pain besides the shoulder? My back has been giving me the blues, but that's old news.
I want to check your gait.
Let's take a loop.
(GRUNTS) Ooh, ooh.
(LAUGHS) I'd know that bum anywhere.
- Hello, sweet cheeks.
- (BOTH LAUGH) BOTH: Mwah.
- First husband.
- You mean best husband.
Well, number two was a bit of a bore.
What are you doing here? That's between me and my doctor, not between me, my doctor and my ex-wife.
We have two children and a grandchild.
I beg to differ.
I bought Josie a scooter, and I took it for a test ride and I failed the test.
- Brett - Though, to be fair, that garbage truck came out of nowhere.
I thought we agreed, no gifts for Josie - until her next report card.
- And when did "we" decide that? When I said, "No gifts for Josie until her next report card.
" Ooh.
Careful, that's a little tender.
KIT: Dr.
Feldman, what did you feel? Not 100% sure.
I'll grab an ultrasound, get a thorough look.
I got a call from Jessie's doctors at her rehab.
She's fatigued and nauseous.
You think this is residual effects from the drug trial she was in? I'm bringing her in for some bloodwork.
- Let me help you with Jessie.
- Thanks, - really, but I'm fine.
- Who's picking her up? - Kyle.
- Kyle? Jessie reconnected with him.
He offered to help.
(SIGHS) Since when does Kyle offer to help? Please let me catch my breath Let me catch my breath Let me catch my Okay, please, let me catch my Ah, come on, bring it in.
You know the drill.
Oh Gosh, I missed you, baby girl.
Glad you're doing okay.
- I missed you too, Daddy.
- Hop in.
Let's go.
(TIRES SCREECHING) You broke up with Karen.
How could you possibly know that? Your blood pressure's high, which usually means you started smoking again, and since she was the only thing between you - and your hand-rolled Cuban cigars - Damn, she's good.
- Imagine being married to her.
- I liked Karen.
What happened? She wasn't the one.
And once you know that why waste time? A focal dilation in the aorta about 5.
6 centimeters.
Add that to his abdominal tenderness, and Brett has an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
I-It's an enlarged area in the lower part of the aorta, the major blood vessel that supplies blood to the body.
Am I gonna die? It's treatable.
We'll consult with our surgeons, the best.
Until then, I'm gonna put you on a drip to get your blood pressure down and admit you to the ICU.
ICU? Come on, be straight with me.
Do we need to call the girls? Yes, but don't worry.
I've got you.
DEVON: That was incredible.
- Unless I'm kidding myself.
- No, you're not.
That was incredible.
- Then why are you making a run for it? - Uh, I'm not.
I'm not.
I have a-a meeting later this afternoon, so I-I, um, I need to get Bailey home because he's clearly pissed at me.
- (MEOWS) - (LAUGHS) Okay.
Look I am figuring out pretty much everything in my life.
I just don't want you to get caught up in that mess.
- You deserve better.
- Julian, stay.
Okay? Trust me, I am still figuring out my own mess.
Maybe we do this together.
This was nice.
But I have to go.
(DOOR CLOSES) Given the size and-and potential for rupture with this triple A, do you think he needs surgery? Oh, there's no doubt in my mind.
Well, isn't there an alternative that won't require him to go under the knife? He's the father of your children.
I get it.
Go on, get a second opinion.
Just quickly circle back to mine before your first love dies waiting.
This all looks good.
You don't have to run these by me.
Just wanted to make sure.
Look, Nic, you've been avoiding me ever since I told you how I feel about you.
(SIGHS) No.
Look, I just I have - a lot going on.
- Hey.
Hey.
Is that Valerie's blood work? You guys sharing a patient? - Yeah.
- Oh.
Cool.
Well, I will let you get back to it.
Valerie's EKG is normal.
So her heart is fine.
What if the intermittent shortness of breath and dizziness is a lung issue a pulmonary embolism? Well, Valerie also has calf pain.
Maybe it's a DVT.
Well, we should get a CT angio to see what's going on.
No, I-I think a CT is premature.
Years on the road has taught me that speed and efficiency in diagnosis is key.
80 million CT scans are done a year.
Many of them are unnecessary.
All right, fine.
We'll do it your way.
For now.
(BELL INHALES) I agree with Dr.
Austin.
Brett's gonna need surgery.
- Well, thank you for taking a look.
- BRETT: Ditto.
It's not every day you get seen by the hospital CEO.
Happy to do it.
Kit's a friend.
When he says "friend," does he mean good friend? No, stop it.
Another F.
O.
W.
? I mean, haven't you had enough of those? BELL: F.
O.
W.
? What am I missing? Stop worrying about me.
Just this once, I'll let you worry about me.
All right, I checked upstairs.
They're gonna let me know when they're ready for you.
How you feeling? - Tired and just still nauseous.
- Well, if your blood work comes back inconclusive, we'll tag in Conrad.
How's he doing? Things still good between you two? (EXHALES) Fine.
Yeah.
Things are things are great.
- How was the drive? - KYLE: Traffic jam.
We'd still be staring at bumpers if I hadn't improvised a well-timed U-turn, creating my own lane.
Which worked like a charm until we saw the flashing lights - behind us.
- Yeah, okay, look.
I'm developing this app to help the people who keep us safe.
FBI, firefighters, cops.
It's a dream of mine.
So, I get to talking to this very handsome young officer - who pulls us over.
- (CHUCKLES) And I told him about this passion of mine.
Nic, ask yourself.
What if law enforcement agencies could share information ten times faster than they do right now? Huh? Game changer.
The cop loved the pitch, and Dad promised to drive like a normal person, so no ticket, no big deal.
I thought your dream job was at that real estate firm after you left your other dream job reinventing public transportation.
Fickle markets.
I read the tea leaves, and thankfully You'll need to know a lot about programming.
Sweetheart, I can hire other people to dig into the details.
- Right.
- (PAGER BUZZING) - They are ready for you.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Wait, wait, wait.
You know what? What if I converted my app to help the health care industry? What do you think? That sounds amazing.
Yeah.
Yeah, it does.
We should get going.
(BEEPING) ALEC: You have a deep vein thrombosis a blood clot in your leg.
That's why you were having calf pain.
Yeah, we want to put you on blood thinners to treat this clot and stop it from getting worse.
Valerie you will need to suspend your training for a few months.
A bad fall could cause internal bleeding.
No.
No, if I do that, I won't be ready for the qualifiers, and I'll miss out on joining the Olympic team.
Look, I'm 18.
That's old for my sport.
This is my last shot.
We wouldn't ask this of you if your life didn't depend on it.
Hey, you know, Valerie, my sister she had the same condition.
And she was torn between playing professional basketball and taking this treatment.
She chose her career and lost her life.
I can't watch you make the same mistake.
Okay.
Give me the blood thinners.
I'm sorry about your sister.
When did she pass? She lives in Buffalo.
Please tell me you didn't just lie to our patient.
Well, I could, but that would be a lie.
We don't coerce patients into treatments they don't want.
Even if it's for their own good and they don't understand what they're choosing? That's why we take the time to explain it to them.
Look, when I treated people in underserved communities, I didn't have the luxury of time.
I did what I had to do to save my patient's life.
Yeah, but you're not out there anymore, are you? - You're at Chastain.
- Yeah, and maybe you've been in here way too long.
Are you sure you were a medic in Afghanistan? Oh, I know who I am.
Question is who are you? CONRAD: I've been summoned.
Must be important.
Dad, what's going on? I'm leaving Chastain.
Leaving? Why? Was there a shake-up on the board? No.
I resigned.
I came here to rebuild our relationship and we've done that.
Yeah, we just got to a great place.
I know.
And, as a result of your influence, I've come to realize that I want to use my vast resources to change the medical industry for the better.
But you can do that here.
There's still work to be done.
But there's even more in the device industry.
I'm considering - righting the QuoVadis ship.
- What? - Why? - I am putting that plan - together as we speak.
- Dad I think you are making a huge mistake.
- We should discuss this over dinner.
- (PAGER BUZZING) It's important to me that you're on board.
Fine.
Oh, thanks for being here.
I know you have got a lot on your plate and more important things to do.
Nothing's more important than you.
Listen, I'm s-sorry, I-I just got to ask.
"F.
O.
W.
"? If you don't tell me, it's just gonna keep me up all night.
Brett knows I write my dance card in pencil.
He was asking if you were my current "flavor of the week.
" As an ex-husband, I find it interesting that Brett cares.
He wants me to be happy.
And in his mind, happiness includes finding someone to share my life with.
Which is sweet, considering I broke his heart into a million pieces.
I was dedicated to my career, wanted out.
Didn't have it in me to end our marriage, so I gave him a reason to divorce me.
I cheated on him.
(BELL SIGHS) I s-sometimes wonder if I should have fought harder to have a marriage and a career.
One of them would have suffered.
Yeah, see, people like you and me we believe that.
And here we are.
Alone.
Well, it seems appropriate that we're both here - in the ruins of QuoVadis.
- How so? The information that you gave my investigator that QuoVadis made their devices in China started the chain of events that led to this.
Thank you for convincing me to come forward.
- Hmm.
- And for not telling anyone where I was.
What was the final nail in the QuoVadis coffin? It was a study.
Called "SEVER.
" 20 people were implanted with a VNS device and 15 of them died.
Oh, my God.
But my experience here has shown me that we need medical device companies that care about their patients.
So I'm thinking about buying, rebranding and retooling QuoVadis.
Okay.
Uh, but why am I here? Because I was moved by your speech at the M&M.
See, I bet on people.
And not the letters after their name.
I wish I could share your vision, but I don't know what I believe in anymore.
MARSHALL: Yes, you do.
You believe that the industry needs to be changed.
Gordon used words just like that.
- Yeah, that's not me.
- That remains to be seen.
I have to do my homework on you before I give you an answer.
Very well.
You'll let me know what you decide.
AUSTIN: Administer the anesthesia.
(RAPID BEEPING) CHU: He's having a hypertensive crisis.
Despite the meds we've given him.
Systolic pressure's at 250.
If we don't stabilize his BP He'll bleed out and die before we make a single cut.
AUSTIN: Phentolamine, now.
(BEEPING STOPS) MINA: This is a temporary fix.
We can't go forward until we get his hypertension under control.
Till then, we need to abort the surgery.
She still in there? How long you think it's gonna be? Well, these things can take a while, so, if there's somewhere else you need to be, just go.
Nic, what's the problem? Why are you here, Kyle? I thought you could use an extra hand with Jessie.
An extra hand? Seriously? I was going to Jessie's parent-teacher conferences when I was 16.
Where were you when I had to bail her out of jail on my prom night, or when she OD'd last year? Or the year before that? - Ah, sweetheart, how'd it go? - Fine.
You know.
They won't have the results till tomorrow.
So, um, see you at home? Yeah, yeah.
Call if there's anything.
JESSIE: Oh, we'll be fine.
I got this guy to wait on me hand and foot.
- Yeah, you do.
- We'll make dinner.
- Love you.
- Love you.
KYLE: I'm thinking lobster thermidor.
JESSIE: (LAUGHS) I bet you are.
(KNOCKING) I was a jerk.
You were sweet, and it's not who I am.
Not that that's an excuse, but can I come in? We should have started with this conversation and not, you know, sex.
But it happened, and we can't take it back.
- Would you? - No.
No.
That's-that's not the point.
The point is you were great and kind.
I want to take you out for dinner.
My treat.
A thank you for taking care of Bailey.
And time for us to talk about everything.
You, me, what the hell we're gonna do with our lives.
Mostly mine.
- Before you say no - I wasn't gonna say no.
Good.
How long do you think he'll be staying with you? You know Kyle.
When things get tough, he'll bail.
Not too long ago, the same could have been said about me.
Well, you wanted to change.
He doesn't.
Anyway, enough about my dad.
What about yours? I heard rumors.
(GROANS) They're true.
He's leaving Chastain to pursue a new passion.
I don't know.
I should be happy.
But part of me just feels like Like he's leaving you again.
Yeah.
VALERIE: I need help! (COUGHING) CONRAD: Valerie, what's going on? - I'm scared I don't know what's going on.
- NIC: She has hemoptysis.
She needs a CT now.
(VALERIE GROANING) There's a sharp pain in my stomach.
Add an abdomen pelvis sequence.
(BEEPING) Valerie doesn't have a uterus.
ALEC: Incredible.
What's going on? Her ovaries aren't cystic, and there's no torsion.
What if they're masses? They are smaller.
Inflammation caused by cancer could explain the DV and the abdominal pain.
We need to schedule a biopsy.
These are cancerous cells.
Well, that explains the pelvic pain and DVT.
Wait, I see sertoli cells.
Seminiferous tubules.
Are you saying our female gymnast has testicular cancer? Did you get sneaky and go behind my back? I was supposed to pay for dinner.
That was the deal.
Okay, the chef remembered me from the ER on Valentine's Day.
I saved his pinky, which meant - he could cook dinner for his wife.
- (LAUGHS) He insisted on covering our meal.
That's romantic-adjacent.
Pretty impressive.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) Hey, can I ask you about your wedding? I've been secretly hoping I wasn't the reason it all blew up.
You know, if I was.
.
truly in love with Priya, I wouldn't have had feelings for you.
Now, what I don't know is I did and I do have feelings for you.
And now you're back.
With a job offer from Marshall Winthrop.
I don't know if I should take it.
To be honest, it scares me a little.
Wait, that's a good thing.
If it doesn't scare you, it's probably not worth doing.
It's our job as parents to push our kids.
You tell your husband to get on the train, - but let you drive.
- Oh, yeah.
Oh, I'm so sorry.
You came to see Mr.
Winthrop, and I talked your ear off.
Oh, that's okay.
Is-is he available? Uh, well, you don't have an appointment, and he has a board meeting soon, so Well, good news is I have another appointment and a board meeting myself, so I'll just be five minutes.
Not to mention my daughter is dating his son.
Mr.
Winthrop, I put Mr.
Nevin - on the schedule for a quick hello.
- Hey, there.
Kyle Nevin.
Nic's father.
- It's great to finally meet you.
- A pleasure.
Your daughter is the best thing that's ever happened to my son.
Well, what, uh, what brings you by? Marshall yeah, I've spent my entire career building a brand with little regard for anyone other than myself.
It's always been about me.
My legacy.
Now I find myself wanting to give back.
So I'm on the cusp of revolutionizing the way doctors communicate with their patients.
It's a very personal venture for me.
I'd like to keep it in the family.
So, I'd love to explore a partnership if you're interested.
Unfortunately, I'm not looking for new business opportunities.
But I wish you the best of luck.
Ah.
Okay.
(CHUCKLES) Thank you.
Thank you for your time.
Hey, you know where to find me.
We got to figure out Brett's hypertension pronto.
We had to put him into a medically-induced coma.
Well, you just rescanned him.
Tell me you learned something.
A mass in his right adrenal.
I think it's a pheochromocytoma.
I mean, it produces hormones that spike blood pressure.
We paged the lab to add on plasma and urine metanephrines to confirm.
- How bad is this? - Well, it's-it's bad.
AUSTIN: Look at that.
The aneurysm is dissecting and blocking flow to the kidneys, so if we don't operate, we risk organ failure and possibly death.
If they operate on Brett with an uncontrolled pheo, he could have a hypertensive crisis, leading to a stroke, a brain bleed or rupture of his aneurysm.
This is an impossible choice.
And it's-it's one we don't get to make.
This is up to his power of attorney.
Did he list one on his intake? He did.
You.
My ovaries are actually testicles? That never descended.
It's a genetic condition known as androgen insensitivity syndrome.
The disorder prevented your male DNA from processing testosterone in utero.
And because you could only process estrogen, you were born with external female characteristics.
- But now one of those testicles has cancer.
-ALEC: Yes.
But the good news is the cancer didn't get far.
CONRAD: Once we remove your testes, you have a high chance of full recovery.
And knowing you, cancer's the underdog in this fight.
What does this all make me? Who am I? The same person you've always been.
Did the testosterone give me an edge? Then the Olympic committee could deem me ineligible.
I just traded one obstacle for another.
Look, we've only been together a couple days, all right? But game recognizes game.
You're like me.
You break down doors.
When one closes, we climb through windows.
Windows won't open, we barrel through the ceiling.
We chew up obstacles and find a way to move forward no matter what.
None of that changes, unless you let it.
So what's it gonna be, Valerie? Let's remove these bad boys.
I have the Olympics to train for.
What man puts his life into the hands of the woman who broke his heart? A man capable of forgiveness.
I guess that's true.
I don't know why he's forgiven me.
What am I supposed to do, Randolph? There is no logical choice.
Well, you know, sometimes logic just goes out the window, and you have to trust your instincts.
I know Brett wouldn't want to wait.
Send him to the OR.
Okay.
(BUZZING) MINA: Micah, hi.
Wow.
I'd nearly given up on you.
I've been considering your proposal.
We need to talk.
I know.
I assume you have your answer? Well, your record appears to be different from the man you say you are today.
I don't take gambles on men I don't know.
Not anymore.
Well, I'm sorry you won't be working for me.
That doesn't mean I won't take your money.
I want to start a nonprofit that will hold device companies like QuoVadis and the FDA accountable.
Something that will become a solution to this epidemic.
I knew I was right about you.
JESSIE: Hey, w-what's going on? Why do I need to be in the ER? Your potassium levels are elevated.
Okay, well, what does that mean? Am I gonna be okay? Um, we just need to try to normalize your levels.
Here, why don't you lie down here.
Hang a liter and let's get her up on the monitors.
I need to talk to Kyle for a second.
You pitched your thing to Marshall.
You used my name and put my boyfriend's father in the position to have to reject your offer.
I mean, do you see how weird this is for everybody? - He struck up a conversation.
- You orchestrated this.
- That's why you're at Chastain.
- Don't you do this.
- I am here for Jessie.
- You called me weeks before Jessie needed to leave rehab.
You knew that Conrad's father was chairman of the board, and when I didn't return your call, you just found another way in.
It doesn't mean I'm not here for her.
Okay, yes, look I know I crossed a line.
But I'm telling you, if this app takes off (NIC SIGHS) we'll never have to worry about money again.
- I did this for the two of you.
- I can't It could be my legacy.
You think this app is gonna change your legacy? Growing up, our school didn't have your number for emergencies, they had our neighbor's.
Even the nurse knew that our father couldn't be trusted to be there.
There isn't one person who relies on you in a time of need.
That is your legacy.
Look, Jessie needs stability, okay? If that's not you, just leave.
Nic this time I'm here.
For her, for you.
You're just gonna have to give me a shot to prove it.
- You mind if I join you? - Oh, I prefer it.
There aren't enough bones in this surgery.
I'm bound to get lost in the weeds.
Well, I can walk you through it if that's helpful.
It is.
And thanks again for being here for me.
Well, Brett's under, his blood pressure seems to be holding.
So we're already off to a great start.
You know what's even more helpful? Honesty.
Don't sugarcoat this.
Walk me through it like a surgeon.
So, by manipulating the pheo, it could release even more "catecholamine" hormones into his body, causing a hypertensive crisis, resulting in a stroke or rupture.
That's more like it.
Thank you.
(BELL EXHALES) Now what's Dr.
Austin doing? He's trying to get control of the distal and proximal abdominal aorta, and this way, if the aneurysm ruptures, he can clamp it off immediately so Brett doesn't bleed out.
AUSTIN: Gerald Forceps and vessel loops for the iliacs.
Right angle to Mina.
(MONITOR BEEPING RAPIDLY) Chu, I need you to max out those drips.
CHU: We maxed out two minutes ago.
- NOLAN: Austin, do you have control yet? - If he can't get control? He will.
These are our most talented surgeons.
NOLAN: U-Uh, guys, I think he's gonna stroke out.
We need to abort If we abort now, we'll never get another shot at this.
It's now or never.
Dr.
Austin.
AUSTIN: Dr.
Okafor.
Aortic clamp.
We now have proximal and distal control.
I am ready to open up that aneurysm sac.
Potts Scissors to me.
Nolan, your days of being a wallflower are over.
Come join the party, brother.
Aortic graft is going in.
- BP's normalizing.
- (EXHALES) Brett's almost there.
God, the nonprofit sounds awesome, Julian.
- (LAUGHS) - And you got Marshall on board? - Impressive.
- You should know that a teeny, tiny part of what you said was helpful.
Oh, yeah? - Which teeny, tiny part? - (CHUCKLES) "If it doesn't scare you, it isn't worth doing.
" I lost my life once as a dancer and then in a job that I settled for.
What scares me is living a life without meaning.
It is inspiring to watch you dedicate yourself to moving the needle in health care.
- And I know you will.
- I'll have to devote everything to making this project work, which means leaving Atlanta and traveling the world.
I understand.
Now is not our time.
Well, eventually, I'll have my sea legs.
You'll have your research year.
- And who knows what'll happen? - True.
And we still have tonight.
And I want to make the most of it.
So we got Valerie all set up for her surgery.
A hundred says she wins a gold medal.
I'll put a grand on seeing her face on a box of cereal one day.
Ooh.
High roller.
(LAUGHS) No dice.
She's sharp, you're probably right.
So, listen, about our disagreement Look we're just two doctors who do things differently, right? Which means we probably shouldn't work together again.
But if you ever want to grab a beer Yeah.
I know where to find you.
- (NIC SIGHS) - CONRAD: How's Jessie? Well, we stabilized her, but her kidneys are failing.
Is the damage reversible? We don't know yet.
There are still more tests to be done.
Sorry to interrupt.
Conrad.
Kyle.
I was talking to Jessie.
Do you think her kidney damage is related to her opioid use? No.
It's most likely experimental meds she was given during a drug trial.
Well, I-I know we're gonna get through this.
The Nevins will do whatever it takes to help one of their own.
That is, if I'm welcome.
Let's go see her together.
You've died and gone to hell, darling.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) You'll be in critical condition for the next week and in physical therapy for at least six months.
But I'll guide you through both if that's okay with you.
I care about you, Micah.
More than I ever thought I could for anyone.
Really? Because I haven't heard from you in weeks.
Well, I was weighing the pros and cons of your proposal.
I I don't like to make decisions - based solely on emotions.
- Look, maybe we should just But yes.
Yes, I will marry you.
You should be with him, I can't compete (LAUGHS) I love you.
You know that.
But Mina, I need to be with someone who loves me on the same level.
- I-I do love you.
- I know.
But these past few weeks have made it very clear.
We're not supposed to be together.
I'm sorry.
When you got to run Just hear my voice in you My voice in you Shutting me out of you Shutting me out of you I should let you pack.
I should let you sleep.
You have an early shift.
Somehow work is not on my mind.
Yeah.
Suitcases, neither.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) I have an idea that'll get us out of bed.
One last dance.
(MUSIC PLAYING) I love that idea.
Night around you Is what night becomes Lake becomes an ocean (LAUGHS) Well, look at you.
- A left foot and a right foot.
- (CHUCKLES) Just wait till you see me next time.
I'll have hips, too.
Please don't Please don't make a fool of me Please don't make If you feel like you've found your next calling, then I'm happy for you.
Well, thank you, but I want to do our exit differently than last time.
Last time, I would've ushered you right out the door.
(CHUCKLES) Now I'm considering locking you inside.
Son, I-I'm leaving town, I'm not leaving your life.
I want to see you often.
And I'll be making many trips to Atlanta.
You know what? Why wait for that? Maybe we finally take that trip to Anguilla.
And you would actually go? Dad, I told you things have changed between us.
I'll send you a few dates, we'll put it in the books.
I'd love that.
Hey, Nic.
Look, I don't mean to add to your stress, but we can't just keep avoiding each other.
Right? I mean, my feelings aren't just gonna change.
Alec Conrad and I have fought long and hard for our relationship, and we've been through it.
But I love him.
But if you and Conrad weren't together? Look, right now, the work we're doing at the clinic should be our only focus.
Let's not complicate things.
