All right, sweet pea,

it's time for you to go to bed.

Mommy, would you ask Daddy

to come tuck me in?

No, he's at work tonight

at the fire station.

But he'll be home tomorrow night.

Mommy, I want to marry Daddy.

You do?

Catherine, you can't marry Daddy.

He's my husband.

Well, when you're done being married,

can I have him?

We'll never be done.

You'll have to marry somebody else.

Can I wear a white dress

and white gloves?

Sure, if you want to.

Will we live happily after ever?

If you marry somebody

who really, really loves you.

Like Daddy?

Yes, like Daddy.

- Terrell, man, my bad out there.

- This ain't no game.

You playing with people lives.

Come on, man.

Eric, he's got a right to be upset.

You left him in a dangerous spot

and tried to be a hero.

I thought I heard someone

calling for help.

It was coming

from outside the building.

It was dark, I couldn't see.

That's why you stay with your partner.

He had to assume...

...that something happened to you

and you needed his help.

You never leave your partner,

especially in a fire.

You give him some time

and then give him an apology.

- And make it sincere.

- Yes, sir.

- Hey, Tasha.

- Oh, hey, Cat.

Just saw you on TV. Looking good.

Oh, I missed it. I was giving a tour

of the new cancer wing.

- Hey, has Robin left yet?

- No, she's here.

Robin, Cat's here.

- Hey.

- How are you?

I'm good. How are you?


Hey, are we still on for tomorrow?

Yeah, 4:
00. You still want

those scented candles, right?

Oh, absolutely. Bring them on.

- I wanna try them all.

- Good.

I'm going to see my parents

this weekend.

- I thought they might like some too.

- Oh, how are they?

Do you know it's been a year

since Mom's stroke?

I've been trying to get her

a new bed and wheelchair...

...but their insurance

doesn't cover it.

I don't know.

It's so frustrating for my dad.

He wants to help her too,

but he can't afford it either.

- I am so sorry.

- Yeah, it's all right.

Anyway, well, I need to run.

- But I'll see you tomorrow, right?

- I'll see you.

- Okay, bye.

- Bye.

- Hey, Catherine.

- I'm so sorry, Dr. Keller.

Call me Gavin, please.

Gavin, sorry for almost

running you over.

- Anytime. It's good to see you.

- You too. Take care.

Sweet girl.

- Tasha, will you file this for me?

- Sure, doctor.

If I didn't know any better,

I'd say the doctor has a thing for Cat.

- Hi, sweetheart.

- Hey, Daddy.

- How are you?

- Oh, great. Good to see you.

You too.

Hey, Mama. How are you, huh?

She's doing great today.

Can I get you

something to drink, dear?

- Do you have any sweet tea?

- With lemon?

You know me.

Oh, Mama, I wish we could talk.

It's been so long

since I heard your voice.

I miss you.

- You have breakfast already?

- Yes.

- What'd you eat?

- I had the last bagel and a yogurt.

Are you planning

on making a grocery trip soon?

Caleb, you work 24 hours

and then you're off for 48.

- You've got more time to go than I do.

- I asked a simple question.

You don't need to get smart with me.

At least save me some breakfast.

I never know when you're coming

or going. You don't tell me.

Catherine, what is your problem?

Did I offend you

by walking in the door?

You can't expect me to work every day

and get the groceries...

...while you look at trash on the

Internet dreaming about your boat.

You chose to take this job.

- No one said you had to work full-time.

- We need the income.

Especially since you tuck away

a third of your salary...

...saving for a boat we don't need.

You've got $24,000 in savings

when things in our house need fixing.
