Bob: 25 wonderful years.

Kim: Oh.

Bob: And they said it wouldn’t last.

Kim: You know, I actually can’t believe that it’s been 25 years.

Bob: Quarter century.

Kim: Oh! Do you have to put it that way?

Bob: Hey, we’re still here. I got to be the luckiest guy in the world. I get up every morning and I see that beautiful face.

Kim: What? This old thing?

Bob: Oh, we’re not old. We’re classic. To us!

Kim: I’ll drink to that.

[Both chuckle]

Reid: We need to talk.

Bob: Dr. Oliver, I’m having lunch with my wife.

Reid: Yeah, lunch can wait. This is really important.

Kim: You two stay here. I’ll go up and see Barbara for a minute.

Bob: Don’t be long. I may need rescuing.

Kim: You’re on your own, Toots.

Reid: I’m being sued for malpractice.

Bob: By whom?

Reid: The father of one of my patients back in Texas. His little girl died, and he needs someone to blame.

Bob: Was it your fault?

Reid: No. But now — the father’s avoiding his grief and coming after my career.

Bob: It sounds like a very well-rehearsed answer. Be honest with me. Did you make a mistake?

Reid: No. I would tell you if I had. Look, you’ve been really good to me — not counting the stunt you pulled in court to keep me here, but since then. I don’t want the new hospital wing being held up because of my bad P.R. maybe I should take a leave of absence until this whole thing’s resolved.

Bob: Absolutely not. You’re not going anywhere. The new wing is you.

Reid: But if I get dragged through the mud because of this malpractice case, the hospital’s going to get dragged along with it.

Bob: We can handle it. When someone threatens one of my doctors, they have to go through me. That’s the deal.

Reid: Thank you. Why? What’s in it for you?

Bob: For a genius, you’re clueless.

Jack: We don’t have to do this now.

Janet: Hey, you remember those vows we took? Didn’t really mean it.

Jack: I did. Every word. You did, too.

Janet: Yeah. I just always thought vows were meant to be permanent.

Jack: Nobody likes divorce. Well, look at it this way — [Clears throat] You’re with somebody new. We weren’t right for each other, and now you have a whole new future ahead of you, and you deserve the best, Janet.

[Cell phone ringing]

Janet: Oh. That could be the hospital. Ah, hello?

Reid: Mrs. Snyder, its Dr. Oliver. I was just in to check on Mr. Donovan. There’s been no change in his condition.

Janet: Oh, okay. Well, thanks for calling, Dr. Oliver. Oh, wait, wait, wait. I have one more question.

Reid: Yes?

Janet: What if he doesn’t wake up?

Reid: I don’t deal in "What ifs." Good-bye, Mrs. Snyder.

Jack: What did Dr. Oliver say?

Janet: No change. So, you remember that future you were just telling me about? I might have to face the fact that Dusty might not be in it.

Jack: Aw, Janet, you can’t give up hope.

Janet: Oh, come on, Jack. We both know the longer he stays unconscious, the less likely he is to wake up.

Jack: Janet.

Janet: I’m not going to lie to myself, and I don’t want you to lie to me, either. Things are going to have to change, right? I can’t stay here forever. So, if Dusty doesn’t wake up, I’m going to have to figure out something else for us.

Jack: Us?

Janet: Me and Liberty and the baby.

Jack: What about me? Don’t count me out. Just ’cause we’re not married anymore doesn’t mean I’m going to stop looking out for you.

Janet: And how will Carly feel about that?

Bob: Let’s try this again, shall we?

Kim: Hey — what happened to your new best friend?

Bob: Oh, I know he’s not one of your favorite physicians.

Kim: Ho, ho.

Bob: But you should be relieved that he’s agreed to stay in Oakdale.

Kim: Why? You work twice as hard now as you did before he got here, and so much for cutting down on your hours.

Bob: That’s all going to change when the new wing is finished.

Kim: Now, you know, that’s something I do believe, because you’re going to have more staff, more patients, more responsibility.

Bob: You know, I want to leave Memorial a better hospital than it was when I got there for the doctors that come after me, like Oliver and like Christopher.

Kim: Christopher. You know, he’s so happy in pediatrics. He really doesn’t want to run the hospital. He’s made that very clear. But I do have a feeling that he’d like to have his father around for a few more years.

Bob: I’m not going anywhere. With the new wing and Oliver in charge, I think that’ll be my greatest achievement. Second only to our marriage, of course.

Katie: Reid, looking good.

Reid: The answer’s no.

Katie: Listen, today is Bob and Kim’s silver wedding anniversary, and we need someone to help us get them to Tom and Margo’s house for their surprise party.

Reid: What does this have to do with me?

Chris: Aren’t you being sued for malpractice?

Reid: Excuse me?

Chris: News travels fast when you get served in these court orders.

Katie: My God! Why didn’t you say anything?

Chris: Katie, we got to focus on the bigger problem here. Okay, look. My brother, Tom, is the hospital’s lawyer, all right. I’m sure if you call my dad, tell him that you got to meet him at Tom’s house to deal with it, he’ll come rushing over.

Katie: Kim’s easy, but we need help with Bob, please?

Reid: Fine. Do I get to come to the party?

Chris: It’s more a family thing.

Katie: Sure, if you want to.

Katie: Come on. We got to hurry up. Reid’s going to be here any minute with your parents.

Chris: Look at them.

Katie: How can you not?

Chris: Yeah, they’re like apple pie and baseball and — what’s that third thing?

Barbara: Diamonds?

Chris: Right. How could I forget diamonds?

Barbara: Oh, oh, am I glad I got here early. I should have known you’d gone tacky.

Katie: Hey, I was just about to put that up!

Barbara: You know, you know, there are going to be a lot of pictures taken here tonight, and in six months, when you look at them, you’re going to regret every one of these crepe paper bells. I mean, if it’s a choice between bare and tacky —

Katie: Well, you would know tacky.

Chris: Okay, wait a minute. The wedding bells, that’s my fault, all right? I was the most desperate person at the party store when they took advantage of me. My bad, all right? So don’t beat up on Katie about it, all right? Today’s all about positive vibes for my mom and dad, so —

Bob: I’ve spent my whole career at Memorial hospital, and I’d like to leave something behind that all of those years are not forgotten.

Kim: That’s funny, because I feel the same way about our marriage.

Bob: So do I, and when I retire, we’ll be able to travel and do all the things we haven’t had time to do before. But right now I’m in charge of building a wing on the hospital. I can’t turn my back on that. It’s my job.

Kim: You and your job.

Bob: Honey, be reasonable.

Kim: I don’t want to be reasonable! I want romance. I want to feel like I come first just for a change.

Bob: Of course you do.

Kim: Well, then prove it! Its a few days. I mean, the hospital is not going to grind to a halt without you. [Sighs]

Happy 25th anniversary.
