Judge: Are you telling the court you’re leaving Oakdale, Dr. Oliver?
Reid: As fast as I possibly can, your honor. Yes, if I could flap my wings and bust through your ceiling, already be on my way.
Judge: You realize you’ve just told me you’re a flight risk?
Reid: Are you kidding me? Where am I? What is this horrible rabbit hole that I’ve fallen down?

— Judge and Reid

START

Luke: Everything’s changed. Think about it, Noah. Yesterday, you couldn’t see, and now you can. And I know that everything’s blurry, but that’s just because of the swelling. Pretty soon you’re going to be back to your old self.

Noah: I can’t go back to the way I was before the accident. I mean, too much has changed. I’m talking about you, Luke. Something’s changed with you.

Luke: A lot’s happened.

Noah: I know. But you’re not just different. You’re — you’re different with me. So — so I’m asking, has the way you feel about me changed?

Luke: Yeah. It has.

Noah: Wow. I, uh — I know I asked. I just never expected you to say yes.

Luke: Noah, I wanted to be here for you. I did everything I could to make sure that happened. I didn’t care that you couldn’t see. I just wanted to be with you. But you didn’t feel the same way.

Noah: How can you say that?

Luke: And how can you not? Noah, I was in this 100%, and I asked you, remember? All or nothing, and you chose nothing.

Noah: I know what I said then, but —

Luke: You told me to go on with my life, and now you’re acting like that never happened. What happens if you change your mind tomorrow?

Noah: I didn’t push you away because I stopped loving you. Because I haven’t. I couldn’t.

Luke: Who cares? When things got rough, you were you. You weren’t us. And I know you were hurting, Noah. And — I was hurting, too. But the difference is is that I didn’t abandon you.

Noah: I was terrified and so angry.

Luke: I know, at me, because I caused the accident.

Noah: At the world, Luke! At the possibility of never directing a film again or reading a book or — or waking up and seeing your face.

Luke: I was there, Noah, whether you could see me or not. I wasn’t going anywhere.

Noah: Yeah, but I just — couldn’t stand the thought of you sitting there, feeling sorry for me, even if that’s not what you were doing. I’d never been in a real couple before. I don’t know what to do.

Luke: Well, I think you’re supposed to figure it out together.

Noah: Isn’t that what this is?

[Luke sighs]

Noah: You know, when I couldn’t see, I — I felt cut off, like I was locked inside my head and nothing was real. It wasn’t living. But now I feel part of the world again, connected, to you.

Luke: Well, I just don’t feel that way. I mean, I know that you feel like you’ve been somewhere else for these last few months, but I have been here the whole time, waiting for you, begging you not to leave me. I didn’t know if you were ever coming back.

Noah: We didn’t know a lot of things then.

Luke: Yeah well, Noah, we haven’t been happy for a long time. I can’t go back to the way it was before the accident.

Noah: I don’t expect you to. I mean, I can’t either. But I still — I want to be with you — to find a new way to be together, if you want to.

Luke: A few months ago, I think I would have known what that meant. Now I’m not so sure.

Reid: What the hell are you doing out here?

Noah: Dr. Oliver?

Luke: Uh, Noah just wanted some fresh air. It’s no big deal.

Reid: It’s no big deal? He just had brain surgery, you idiot. Are you trying to undo everything?

Noah: I — I feel fine.

Reid: It doesn’t matter. If you felt bad, it would be too late. Mr. Snyder knows how important rest is for your recovery.

Noah: Please, don’t be mad at Luke, okay? I made him take me out here. It was probably a stupid thing to do.

Reid: It was, but you have a reason for not thinking clearly. Your boyfriend here should know better.

Luke: Yeah. He’s right. I’m sorry. Noah, let’s get you out of here.


Luke: Hey. I’m glad I found the two of you together.

Casey: Not by choice.

Luke: Is something wrong?

Alison: He’s just being dramatic. How’s Noah?

Luke: Uh, good news. He’s got his sight back.

Casey: For real?

Luke: Yeah. I mean, everything’s a little bit blurry, but he can see light colors and dark colors. Noah’s going to be able to see again.

Alison: Well, what about the bleeding in his brain?

Luke: No permanent damage. Noah’s still Noah.

Alison: God, I’m so happy for you! Can we see him?

Luke: Oh, you guys can. I can’t. Um, I took him up to the roof to see the sun, and Dr. Oliver caught me, and now I’m banned.

Casey: Well, if you want to sneak in, I’ll watch the door for you.

Luke: No, you know what? He probably didn’t mean it. But you guys should stop by. Noah would like to see some friendly faces.


Reid: Well, you’re lucky. You don’t seem to have suffered any ill effects as a result of Luke’s stupidity.

Noah: Why are you being so hard on him?

Reid: You’re fresh out of surgery. The roof is hardly sterile.

Noah: Yeah, but I wasn’t exactly rolling around up there. I didn’t even get out of the wheelchair.

Reid: Surgery is traumatic for the body. Luke should have enough sense to know that.

Noah: I thought you two were getting along better ever since your trip to Texas?

Reid: What gave you that idea?

Noah: Well, you stopped calling him "Mr. Snyder," for one thing.

Reid: I hadn’t noticed.

Noah: I think you should give him a break. I mean, he did help you avoid that malpractice suit and keep your license. He didn’t have to do that.

Reid: He did it for you, not for me.

Noah: All right, still —

Reid: Look, I wanted something. Luke was able to help me. I made nice to get what I wanted. Now that I have, I don’t have to fake it anymore. End of story.

Luke: So that’s all it was? You were just using me?

Noah: Um, what exactly is going on between you two?

Reid: It seems that I’ve hurt Mr. Snyder’s feelings. Sorry if I don’t want to be your new best friend. Well, at least you two have each other.

Noah: Wow. You know, I mean, he’s a brilliant doctor, but uh, as a person, he’s — [Laughs] Are you all right?

Luke: Yeah, yeah. Don’t worry about me. I — I don’t care about him.

Noah: Really? Because you —

Alison: Can we come in?

Noah: Hey, Alison.

Alison: Hey!

Noah: Come here. Let me see what color your hair is this week.

Alison: Oh, man. It’s so good to see you.

Noah: And Casey, it is good to see you.

Casey: How are you doing, Buddy?

[Laughter]

Casey: I know. It’s literally great news. I know. I’m happy for you, man.

Alison: That Dr. Oliver really is a miracle worker.

Noah: Yeah. We were just talking about that.

Casey: I would just like to say something. You know, the way you guys really made it through this together, you know, it’s really awesome. I wish we could all be as lucky.

Luke: Um —

Alison: What Casey said.

Luke: Well, hey, I — I have a present for you. Uh — it’s your movie. I mean, I — I know I already gave you a copy, but when you moved out, you didn’t take it with you. So I thought that maybe you could have another one, and now you can actually watch it. Um, please, if — if you don’t like the edit, feel free to change it.

Noah: I’ll probably re-edit it now just because I can.

[Laughter]

Noah: Thank you.

Casey: I — I saw it on campus, actually. Luke did an amazing job.

Luke: Oh, come on. I’m not so sure about that. Please be kind.

Noah: I will. As kind to you as you’ve been to me.


Reid: What part of "The patient needs rest" do you not understand?

Noah: We were just telling stories.

Reid: You need to be lying down.

Noah: I — I’m sorry, but we were just — you know, needed a different position for a little while.

Reid: Oh, by all means, whatever you need.

Luke: Look, it’s not like he was running down the halls, doing laps.

Reid: Noah’s brain needs to heal itself, which means bed rest. You fought very hard to get me to do this surgery. Now it seems that you’re doing everything you can to endanger the results.

Noah: Luke would never do anything to hurt me. You gave me my life back. I just want to celebrate.

Reid: Don’t get ahead of yourself, Noah.

Noah: It’s been a really long time since I was able to just hang out and laugh with my friends. I need this.

Reid: Oh well, golly, I must have missed that course in medical school.

Alison: Okay, yeah, Casey and I have to get back to work, anyway. So we’ll just, uh — we’ll check in on you later, okay?

Casey: Definitely, yep.

Alison: Bye.

Casey: Yeah.

Luke: Um — maybe you need some sleep. I’ll come back in a couple hours.

Reid: Tomorrow would be better.

Noah: Wait. No, don’t go. Please, Dr. Oliver, let him stay. I — I promise I’ll rest. I just — I don’t want to be alone right now.

Reid: Suit yourself. I’ve already told you what I think.

Luke: Are you sure you’re not too tired?

Noah: Yeah, no. I’ve rested enough. Right now I just want to watch my movie, even though it may be a little blurry. I — I think I left my laptop in the closet.

Luke: Well, actually, I brought you a DVD player.

Noah: Thank you. Luke, this is, uh — this is the best present I ever had.

Luke: [Chuckles] I hope you feel that way after you’ve seen it. Look, I’ll let you watch it alone. That way you don’t have to pretend that you couldn’t have done it any better. Why are you treating me like this?

Reid: I’m sorry you don’t like the way I’m treating you.

Luke: Look, it’s just that I thought —

Reid: I’m being a responsible neurosurgeon, protecting my patient from his own reckless behavior. What are you doing?

Luke: What do you mean? I’m trying to support Noah. That’s what he needs. I’m trying to be there for him.

Reid: No, you’re not. You’re trying to make up for the fact that you kissed me.

Luke: We kissed each other.

Reid: Yeah, but I don’t feel guilty about it. You do. That’s why you’re pretending that you and Noah are star-crossed lovers all over again.

Luke: I never said that.

Reid: You didn’t have to. You’re playing the devoted boyfriend to the hilt. It’s sickening.

Luke: Are you jealous?

Reid: I don’t have time to be jealous, okay? But just so we’re clear, you’re not helping your boyfriend.

Luke: Look, he’s not my boyfriend. He’s —

Reid: He’s what?

Luke: He’s feeling better. Isn’t that all that matters?

Reid: Not to me! I don’t care how he feels. He’s got months of a very difficult recovery ahead of him. Turning his room into party central isn’t going to make it any easier! But, you know, that’s just my opinion. You know what’s best.


Noah: Luke, you did an amazing job. Luke! Luke.

Luke: This is not about medicine. It’s personal.

Reid: No, it’s not. Noah is my patient. You’re his cheating boyfriend.

Luke: We are not back together! You know that.

Reid: Does Noah realize that?

Luke: Well, we’re trying to work things out.

Reid: Good luck with that, Mr. Snyder.

Luke: Don’t call me that.

Reid: What do you want from me? Tell me. You want me to pretend that nothing happened between us? That’s not the way I work. We both know that’s not true.
