No one's taken me home

since the first grade.

I have tickets on AmTrak

to get you to San Francisco.

Your train leaves in an hour.

I want to fly.

I'm sorry?

You'll fly me back to San Francisco

for free...


Of course.

But when I told your wife the good news,

she said that...

...even before the unpleasant...


Yes, right.

Even before that...

...you were afraid to fly.

I'd love to fly home on your airline,

but I've got a request.


I want to go first class.


With our compliments, sir.

- Cockpit preparation?

- Completed.

Light test?

- Oxygen and interphone?

- Checked.

- Yaw damper?

- On.



Sir, may I see your boarding pass?

Your seat is right down the aisle.

Is he on board?

I just made it.

I'm Bill Perlman.

Going home, right?

Glad to be going home, I bet.

You're a shrink.

That's right.

I specialize in the treatment

of post-traumatic stress disorder.

I wrote a book about it

and several airlines hired me...

We're pulling away from the gate.

...as a consultant to work

with crash survivors.

One of my perks is free tickets.

Seatbelt, I think you should put it on.

But I have to travel so much for work...

...that my idea of a vacation...

That's normal.

...is just to stay put.

I'm not scared.

But I would like another drink...

...when we're airborne.

I should say, if we're airborne.

- Mom, he's here! He's really here!

- I knew you were all right.

- I knew you were okay!

- We were so worried.

It's a miracle.

You're alive.

I knew I couldn't lose you.

- Coffee. Let's get coffee.

- Okay.

- Look at you. He's perfect.

- Yes, he is. He's just fine.

Come here.

Were you scared?


Not at all.

Excuse me.

- I'm Steven Brillstein.

- Nan asked if he could wait here.

He's a lawyer.

I'm sorry to intrude, but...
