Luke: Uh, do you have a minute, just to talk?
Reid: Not really. This hospital’s full of whining hypochondriacs. Must be something in the water.

— Luke and Reid

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?
