11:24 pm
(heartbeat whooshing) thank god they found her. where was she? in an elevator. (sighs) okay, walter, i'm just looking at your heart right now. are they feeding her? they shouldn't give her oranges. they give her mouth sores. they will not feed her unless you tell them to. but let's worry about working on you first, and then we'll worry about vallenwe'en. your left ventricle is barely moving. put a stent in it, problem solved. her mother abandoned her, and that's why she wound up in a pet store. so that's why i can't give her to another pet store. and the creeps that had her before, they never would change her hay. so when i adopted her, all her hair was falling out, and she was, like, scared of everybody, but now she has got, like, this silky coat, and she is, like, so friendly. isn't she friendly, dr. murphy? you've definitely given vallenwe'en a new lease on life. it's true. dr. murphy is helping me see how dependent i am on her. walter's overly attached to vallenwe'en, so we're working on strengthening the attachments to the people in his life
11:25 pm

(disco music playing) feel the pain,nd... (with patients) oxygenate the brain. great. joel, you're more than welcome to join the spin class here. i'll be doing a little guided imagery. no, thank you.'m just here to watch hope zion's money disappear into the toilet. sorry? ida!

(stammers) sats and pressure again. still holding. (exhales) okay, so far, so good. kidney is free anteriorly. he's tolerating the rection. i don't feel any cancer on the liver. feeling the vertebral bodies. (sighs) there is definitely more tumor there. near the spine. give it a feel. tell me what you think. page dr. harris, please. there's no plane. yeah. damn. i think the tumor's invading the l3 vertebra. the c.t. didn't show it. tumor has the same consistency as the surrounding tissue and fat, so it wouldn't show on the c.t. right. did you reach dr. harris? he's not picking up. we, he should be answering. he knows that we need him.
11:27 pm
(man) dr. reid? (beeping continues) dr. reid? give him his lidocaine drip. stabilize him. what--wh-- where are you going? (gloves snap) reycraft, make sure we didn't miss any tumor.

11:30 pm
a healthy helping of delicious gravy. marie callender spends time on the little things, so that you can spend time on what really matters. marie callender's.
11:31 pm
pick up, pick up, pick up. dr. reid? mr. kapogrecko. wh-- shouldn't you... (gasps) no. no. it--it's okay. there were complications during lou's surgery. he's not out of the woods yet, but we managed to stabilize him. oh! (exhales and sniffles) i thought you were gonna tell me that he died. that's, uh, how it happened with his mother. i mean, you never expect a doctor to come out and tell you that. (sniffles) marvin, he's hanging in there.
11:32 pm
he's smarter than me. and he never ges up. he's a good kid. no, he's a great kid. we are gonna get through this. okay? (sighs) just hang on a little bit longer. (buttons click) (sighs, under breath) come on, charlie. answer the damn phone. you lied to my patient. what, about adopting his guinea pig? yes. you're not really gonna do that, are you? no, i'm not. but it worked, right? he feels better. i can't lie to my patients, and that means that you can't lie to him with me. the most important part of my care is trust. dr. murphy, we give patients placebos--sugar pills. they heal. they feel better. that is good medicine, too.
11:33 pm
everything that he said about that guinea pig is true about him. he was abandoned by his mother. he was malnourished, incommunicive. his adoptive parents gave him one-tenth of the love and encouragement that he needed to be a healthy man with healthy attachments to people. guilt trip recved. okay, now i'm gonna have to give that guinea pig back to him, and everything we worked on is gonna backslide. he may not ever part with it again. you gonna waste time backsliding? that is a choice. right now your patient is on his way to being healed. that is your choice. (telephone ringing in distance) (horn honks in distance) (clears throat) you canceled the study. shahir, won't you come in? i am in. joel, i don't understand your decision. your patient fell. she's your patient, too. she may have sprained her wrist. yes, because she's old. she has parkinson's. but soon she'll be frozen. she won't be able to move at all.
11:34 pm
i mean, i... it feels a little pointless. it's not pointless, joel. (sighs) i believe if a patient seeks treatment early enough, cycling can be just as effective as deep brain stimulation. you injured your patient. it was minor. okay, if hope zion is spending money, i wanna see concrete results and no lawsuits. so then the outdoor component-- that's--that's out of the question. is it? i'm sorry, shahir. i... . i feel bad. nah. you don't feel bad. you don't feel anything. trust me, i'm a bit of an expert on that. but, see, i-i have asperger's. what's your excuse? three months you were stuck like this wandering these halls? yep. alex was here fighting for my life, searching for a y to bring me back. (sighs) well, i'm dead, charlie. there's... there's no coming back from this. i know.
11:35 pm
she always felt responsible for you. i think in a way she feels like she let you down. maybe that's it. maybe that's why i'm still here. maybe it's my turn to take care of her. and when i know that she's okay, i'll--i'll move on. that could take a while, luke. right? in the meantime, let's, um, let's try this funeral home release. couldn't hurt, right? baby steps. get her to sign it when i see her, and we'll see what happens. thanks. i really appreciate you helping me figure this out. hey, man, this is apparently what i do. charlie. hey! i was, uh... we've been paging you. we need you in the o.r. now. okay. i'll sign the release.
