I think that that's something

you should discuss

with your wife.

No, I'm not telling my wife.

I'm not telling anybody.

And neither are you.

They opened me up once,

and they're not opening

me up again.

Whatever's broken, doctor,

we both know

it's not getting fixed.


If you don't have

this surgery...

You're going to die.

And if I do have the surgery?

Would you please see

that all of that is in my file?

Of course.

Thank you, doctor.

I'll take a copy

of my file, sue.

And could you dial

a number for me, please?

Hello. Can I speak

to Peter, please?

It's Raymond Engersol.

Thank you.

Hey, Pete, it's ray.

How you doing today?

Oh, well, that's good to hear.

Are we still set for Tuesday?

Next Tuesday?

Great, I'll be there.

No, I'm coming, Peter.

I've been speaking

to Dr. Feldstein about this.

I've made up my mind.


I'll see you soon.

And, daddy, I love you so much

that I even let you order

a bacon cheeseburger

at this fine establishment,

so, I'm a hero.

But seriously,

happy birthday, dad.

Here's to many, many,

many, many more. Cheers.

- Honey?

Oh, uh, cheers.

Happy birthday.

Happy birthday, ray.

So, Colt, tell me,

how's football going, bud?

- Good, sir.

- Good.

You got your first game

coming up this week.

Yeah, yeah,

we're looking really great.

Excellent. You gonna get

some playing time this year?

- Dad.

- It's an alternating lineup.

Annie, have you talked

to your brother lately?

Nick's fine, he texted me that

he's doing this photo shoot

off-campus with a nude couple.

Really, is that

for extra credit or...

- Fetish?

- Or for fun?

- Stop.

- Both, knowing him.

At least he calls you back.

Honey, how was your

appointment today?

- Raymond?

- Oh, it was fine.

Who are you seeing, dad?
