There's other people

in the house, okay?

She's somehow comfortable

with it...

You're not gonna have

any more sex. It's over

I almost, almost

had sex this morning.

Hi, everything all right?

They didn't come.

I need you to drive me

to my appointment.

- Who didn't come?

- The taxi.

They said they got

the time wrong.

My appointment was for 11:00.

- Um, can you reschedule?

- I can't reschedule.

I need to be there today.

Come on.

Sorry, it's, um...

His birthday, and...

- He's intense.

- Oh, you have no idea.

It's two years

since the heart attack,

and Kate insists

that he stay here

until he gets a full recovery,

and there is no full recovery.

I don't know

how you're doing it, man.

My in-laws stayed with us

for a couple weeks in June,

and I was ready to, like,

fucking drive my truck

off the GW

with them in the back.

- Stop it!

- In a sack tied up.

- Um, how are you getting home?

- I'll take a cab.

Are you sure you don't want me

to come back and get you...

You're welcome.

Well, I'm sorry to have

to give you this news

on your birthday,

Dr. Engersol.

It's not your fault.

All right, so, as you can see,

your severe aortic stenosis

should make you

a reasonable candidate

for valve replacement.

However, your pre-op Cath

shows extensive blockages...

We've been over this.

I just need my records.

Now, there are still

surgical options.

Yes. Aortic valve replacement.

Another bypass.

I don't have to tell you

that a procedure on a heart

- in your condition...

- No, you don't.

I sat behind a desk like yours

for over 40 years.

Let me ask you something.

Even if I didn't code

on the table,

what kind of time

do you actually think

this would buy me,

six months at most?

Let me make your job

easier for you, okay?

I'm not having the surgery.
