You didn’t ask me to come here, Mr. Snyder. You forced me to. My time is extremely valuable. Just ask any of my patients who are waiting for me back in Dallas. And God help you if one of them doesn’t make it because I’ve been wasting my time here.

— Reid (to Luke)

Transcript | 12 May 2010

Face Touch. Luke worries about Noah and Reid comforts him…and Lily cottons on. Luke shines like a 200-watt lightbulb as he describes Reid (he’s rude…) and Noah wakes up and convinces Luke (against his best judgment) to take him outside.

HappyInChintz72’s Reid Oliver Story Parts TBC

Anthony D Langford May 12, 2010 Parts TBC


Luke: What — what happened? Is Noah okay? Did he — did he wake up?

Reid: Don’t have a coronary. I don’t do cardiology.

Luke: Oh. Really? ‘Cause I thought you were, like, über-doctor, like know all, see all, cure all.

Reid: Just on alternate Wednesdays. They’re taking Noah down to radiology.

Luke: Really? What’s wrong?

Reid: Well, this might be nothing, but we think he’s showing signs of coming around.

Luke: Really? He’s getting better? Are you sure?

Reid: Well, we’re not sure about anything yet.

Luke: But you said there were signs. Like what, did he open his eyes, can he talk? Are you sure there’s no brain damage?

Reid: We don’t know anything, Luke. That’s why we’re doing the tests.

Luke: Yeah, but if there is brain damage, then what are you gonna do next?

Reid: Try to relax, okay? We need to take this one step at a time. I’ll come back when the tests are done.

Lily: Is something going on between you two?

Luke: Thanks, Mom.

Lily: So, they haven’t brought Noah back yet? We can talk about what just happened?

Luke: About Reid?

Lily: Oh, it’s "Reid" now?

Luke: Mom —

Lily: Luke, what is going on?

Luke: He told me that he has feelings for me.

Lily: What? I can’t believe it. You’re worrying about Noah, and for his doctor to take advantage of that —

Luke: He’s not taking advantage of anything, Mom. He’s been completely honest this whole time.

Lily: So you’re encouraging him? What about Noah?

Luke: Mom, we broke up. You know that. He said he needed his space. He couldn’t have that with me there, so we ended things.

Lily: You said that Dr. Oliver has feelings for you. What about you? Do you have feelings for him?

Luke: Yeah. But I’m not really sure what they are right now. Reid’s sure, though. What?

Lily: I just — I can’t imagine you with anyone other than Noah.

Luke: Yeah. I used to think that, too.

Lily: He doesn’t seem like a very nice man.

Luke: Dr. Oliver? He’s not. He’s rude, and he’s cold. He’s rude.

Lily: And you find that attractive?

Luke: No, it’s just — he’s in your face, like — he’s like, "Okay, here I am, and this is what I’m feeling. Deal with that." And to have a guy like that, a guy who says exactly what he feels at all times — to have somebody like that say that he likes you, I mean, it feels nice for a change. Why are you so sad?

Lily: Because I wanted things to work out with you and Noah, okay? I wanted you to have that kind of love that lasts forever.

Luke: Yeah, but people thought that you and Dad had that kind of love.

Lily: Yeah. So did we.

Luke: But how does that even work? Is it possible?

Lily: Well, it takes two people that want it to work, that believe it will work and make it work.

Luke: Yeah, well, who stopped believing, you or Dad?

Lily: We both took turns.

Luke: Whose turn was it this time?

Lily: Do you want forever with Reid Oliver?

Luke: I want Noah to wake up.

Lily: So do I. And I want you to be happy, Baby.

Luke: Happy and Noah — they used to mean the same thing.

Luke: I’m gonna go wait in Noah’s room. You can come with if you’d like.

Lily: You go ahead. It sounds like you’ve got some thinking to do.

Luke: Mm. Thanks, Mom.

Lily: I’ll check in on Noah later. I’m praying for good results.

Luke: Well, I’ll tell him you said that. I don’t know if he can hear me, but I keep talking to him like he can.

Lily: You do that. I’ll talk to you soon.

Luke: So, how did the test go? Is there any change? Is Noah gonna be all right?

Reid: One step at a time. First do the tests, then analyze the tests. So if you’ll back off, I will go do that now.

Luke: Look, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to walk all over you. I just want Noah to wake up.

Reid: Me, too.

Luke: Why, so you can declare your surgery an official success?

Reid: Among other things.

Luke: Noah — Noah, do you hear me? They say that you might be making some headway, so if that’s true, if you can hear me, just — just open your eyes, Noah. Please wake up. Please. Noah, it’s me. Can you see me?

Luke: Noah, are you okay? Can you see me? If you can hear what I’m saying, just say something or nod your head.

Noah: I see — I see your eyes. You’re the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

Luke: You’re you. You’re still you.

Noah: Who else would I be?

Reid: You’re awake.

Luke: He can see.

Noah: Sort of.

Reid: Well, if you’ll excuse us, Mr. Snyder, I need to examine my patient.

Luke: Yeah, of course. I’ll be back later, Noah.

Noah: See you then.

Reid: What’s your name?

Noah: Did you forget?

Reid: I’m checking to see how much you’ve forgotten. Follow the light. You’ve been unconscious for a long time. Name?

Noah: Noah Mayer.

Reid: Year?

Noah: Star date 2010. Still sounds funny to say. And you are Dr. Reid Oliver. But you’re gonna have to come closer so I can see the — the comb-over, buck teeth, and, beer belly you were talking about before.

Reid: You remember that? You were pretty high on anesthesia. So, what do you see?

Noah: Well, I see you. Just, you’re really blurry. This is way better than it was before, but, I don’t want to sound greedy, but is this as good as it’s gonna get?

Reid: No. Your vision will continue to improve, but it’s gonna take some time. You need to be patient.

Noah: Thank you.

Reid: Just doing my job.

Noah: I never thought I was gonna be able to see again. You and Luke — Luke made this happen.

Reid: Oh, I think I had a little more to do with it.

Noah: No, but he brought you here. This whole time, I’ve been — I’ve been pushing him away. I’m gonna make it up to him.

Reid: Okay, well, great. I’m interested in your vision, so, you know, you can save your true confessions for somebody who, I don’t know, cares.

Noah: Some things never change. Your bedside manners still stinks.

Reid: That’s a relief.

Luke: How is he?

Reid: All yours.

Luke: What did he say? Are you on the road to recovery?

Noah: I’m great. I can see shapes and colors and details, too, you know, if they’re close enough. But Dr. Oliver says that will improve, too.

Luke: So, Noah Mayer, you just had a successful surgery, and you’re getting your sight back. What do you want to do now?

Noah: Everything.

Luke: Be more specific.

Noah: I want to go outside.

Luke: Noah, you just got out of surgery. I don’t know if that’s a good idea.

Noah: I haven’t been able to see in months. Come on, help me out.

Luke: Well — let me ask Dr. Oliver if it’s okay.

Noah: Dr. Oliver’s gonna say no. He says no to everything.

Luke: Well, maybe there is a reason for that. I can’t just haul you out of here.

Noah: Who cares what the doctors say? You asked me what it was I wanted. This is it, Luke.

Luke: I’ll go get you a wheelchair.

Doctor: Dr. Oliver, congratulations.

Reid: On?

Doctor: Everybody in the hospital’s talking about your miracle case. You must feel good about finally proving yourself to be the brilliant genius you always insisted you were.

Reid: I haven’t given it much thought. That case is done. I’m moving on to the next one.

Luke: How’s this?

Noah: It feels so good.

Luke: How are your eyes? Do they hurt?

Noah: It’s still blurry, but I can make out which blob is the sky and which blobs are the buildings. I can see colors.

Luke: That’s great.

Noah: I know how hard I’ve been on you. I’m so sorry, Luke.

Luke: Look, Noah, don’t apologize. The accident was my fault. If I hadn’t distracted you that day —

Noah: I can see again, Luke, because of you, because you stuck with me through all this.

Luke: Whether you wanted me to or not.

Noah: I know it hurt you when I asked you to back off, but you did it anyway. And when I needed you to be there for me through the surgery, you were. A lot of people talk about love, but you do it. And I am so grateful to you, Luke.

Luke: Look, Noah, you don’t have to apologize because you didn’t want to be with me. It happens.

Noah: That had nothing to do with you or the way I feel about you. I was so afraid that this moment would never come again. Look, I know we’ve got a lot to work through, but I hope our relationship is — is strong enough to survive this.

Luke: Noah — that’s not important right now. You have to focus on your health, not on our relationship.

Noah: Okay. I know I may not be able to see the expression on your face, but I can feel it. Something’s changed. What is it?
