Please, time's up! Hurry up!

Time's up! Come on!

- Hi!

- Hi, Deepak.

Congratulations, Deepak!

I swear to fulfill to the best

of my ability and judgment this covenant.

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains

of those physicians

in whose steps I walk.

I will remember that warmth,

sympathy and understanding

may outweigh the surgeon's knife.

May I long experience

the joy of healing those

who may seek my help.

And I will maintain

by all means in my power

the honour and noble tradition

of the medical profession.

Swami-ji, keep the rupees!

It's all about dollars for me!

Show some respect now, huh?

I'm a doctor!


Dr. Deepak Veer Chopra.


- on!


Your father would've been

so proud of you today!

He would've been proud of you, Ma.

You've worked so hard for us.

Ma! Ma!

Last time!

I want us to experience the world now!

And, Ma, I can heal people anywhere!



Ma, pack up these spices now!

We'll need them to keep us warm.

We are moving to the land of opportunity.

- Honey... I thought

we were going to Canada.

Let's go!

So many white people, new?

Ma, did you know the entire country

once belonged to the Indians?

Amazing! Indians!


Dr. Deepak Veer Chopra. Really?

Millions of us Indians

share many names,

but there's only one great

Dr. Deepak Chopra.

You also!

And Vijay Sharma sponsored you?

Yes! He's my brother!

He's got the best Indian

restaurant in Toronto:

Korma Suva!

Susan, you should come there sometime

if you like Indian food.

We'll give you big discount!

- Welcome to Canada.

- Thank you, ma'am!

Thank you! Thank you!

Look how quickly

she stamped our passports!

These Chinese, they're just like us!

- OK!

- They love discounts

even more than sex!

Shhh! Shhh! Let's go!


We have to find your uncle Vijay.

- OK!

Over here! Over here!

Who are these girls?

Must be his assistants, new?

Hey, Uncle!

Welcome to Toronto! Huh?

So, Uncle, where's all the snow?


- Huh?

Beautiful house, Uncle!

Very nice!

And where is she?

Uncle, when do we meet Rani?

- Viju, you never told us

where did you meet her?

- Uh,where?

- Huh, where?

She's coming.

Huh? What do you think?


Welcome to your new home.



- I hope you brought your appetites.

I've been cooking up a storm!

Buzz, buzz, buzz!


Let's eat!

That's fine. Thank you!

- Mmm! Rani,

there's already enough food!

Oh, but the Dalai Lama says,

"One must approach both love

and cooking with reckless abandon. "


Oh, your auntie warships the snake god.

But, Uncle, isn't the snake god a cobra?

- Um, there are no cobras here,

so she worships the rattlesnake god.

- No, thank you, Auntie!

I don't eat meat!

My Deepu is a grass eater!


But I'll have some!


Thank you! Uncle, can I serve you?

- Please!

- Mmm!

Looks tasty!

Uh. good!


Thank you!


Thank you!


- Where did you learn

to cook Indian food?


- Uncle? Auntie?

You've been godsends.

Supporting my education

and now sponsoring us?

Really, words can't express

how thankful lam

for everything you've done

for Ma and me.

- Don't thank me.

It was your aunt's idea.

She wanted us all to be together.

- Really?

- Thank you, Auntie!

You're welcome!

To my lovely Indian family!


I'll drink to that!

- But Neelu-ji,

you've never drank alcohol before!

Well, I've never been on a plane before!


I like Canada!

It likes you!


Ma, are you OK?

I would be proud to be a pan
