Hello, it's Dr. Mathis

and I was just calling to see

how you're doing on the new medicine.

If you're sleeping okay.

If you still have anxiety.

[touch tones beeping]

Yes, but I need you to try harder.

You can't cancel within a 24-hour window.

Mm-hmm.

Terry?

Terry?

[ominous music begins]

[girl] Dr. Mathis?

[sighs]

Nora.

[whimpering]

I did what you told me to do.

Nora...

Nora.

You need to listen to me.

Give me the glass.

Nora, it's okay.

I'm going to call the ambulance,

and you're going to give me that glass.

Nora, look at me. Look at me.

You were wrong.

Give me the glass.

You were so wrong.

Let me help you.

Aah!

[struggling]

[grunts]

No.

[gasps]

No, no, no!

[Jane] Remember when you were a kid

and a year felt like a really long time?

[Terry] Perils of age.

Last week I was 20.

So, it's the anniversary.

[Jane] Two years.

I feel like I have to move on now.

I need to be helping people.

I can't... I've been avoiding this

for too long.

[Terry] What would you like

to talk about today?

[Jane sighs]

Well...

feeling slightly disconnected,

insecure,

some mild form of general anxiety,

obsessive-compulsive thoughts...

Jane, you drive 90 minutes

every week to see me.

Let's make it worth the trip.

You are the patient now.

I'm sorry, I... I just...

I think it's time to move on.

Last time you talked

about going to see her.

I'm not ready.

Fine.

Uh...

the painters left yesterday.

Finally.

[chuckles]

Now it's kind of back

to how my dad had it.

[chuckles]

He was always working, but he...

he wasn't at work

when I was a kid, you know?

Could always go and visit him.

I am seeing this guy.

Oh!

He's a cop.

- I know what you're thinking.

- What am I thinking?

You're thinking I...

You're thinking I'm dating Miles

because I have a...

I didn't know he was a cop

when I met him, okay?

I just want you

to find someone you care about.

He's a really good person.

And, um, it's been a while.

[chuckles]

[sighs]

I can't believe I'm saying this, but...

I like him.

Well, that's good!

[chuckles]

You see that, right?

You're confronting the trauma,

and now you're getting on with it.

You just take care of yourself.

I'm taking it slow.

- Good.

- Yes.

That's what all great psychiatrists say.

[chuckles]

[patient] Finally,

you know, I just got up,

I walked into her office,

and I told her... you know,

I told her that she was wrong.

You know?

It... it offended me as a person.

Feel good?

Actually, yes!

It's like this giant weight's

been lifted off my shoulders.

[no audio]

[no audio]

Good. That's the hour.

Mm.

Greg?

Um... you think there's anything

you might be able to give me?

You know, I'm still having

a lot of anxiety.

Let's try a few more sessions
