Get out of the way!

This way!

Saint Luke's Hospital.

I repeat, Saint Luke's Hospital.

Does anything hurt?

Sweetheart, is your mommy here?

Do you know where she is?

Really, I'm just... No.

Don't come over.

No. No, I swear

I wasn't just seeing things.

I mean, it could have just been a prank.

I don't know who.

No, really, I'm just gonna see you

at school tomorrow.

Thanks, Leann.




Come on.

Over here.

Beth's a little too sane for me,

but she does throw a good party.

Yeah, so now I'm having sex

and phone sex at the same time.

Oh, man. Are you serious?

I know, but he was just so handsome.

And I was so nervous, you know?

And I'm trying to describe

the plot of Beloved to him...

...and I just started crying.

It was a perfect year, wasn't it?

I loved it.

Brian, could you get your eyes off Taylor

for two seconds and help me with this?


And before the sheets are even cold.

No wonder why Leann moved out.

I am a man. I have needs.

Is that a problem for you?

No. But it might be a problem for Taylor.

Hot. Yes, well...

...we can't force Taylor

to have good taste, now can we?

Just keep chopping.

I'll keep chopping.

You know, I can hear you analyzing me in

your head. You might as well do it out loud.

Okay, I think that

you're still messed up over Leann.

You think if you flirt with Taylor...

...maybe Leann'll get jealous

and come back to you.

Go back to analyzing me in your head.

I think I like that better.

Hey, did someone lock the door?

- Hey, Leann. Hi.

- Hi.

Oh, I'm so glad to see you.

- Me too.

- Is... Is Brian home?

Yeah, he's in the kitchen,

so we should go upstairs.

How you doing?

Oh. Oh.

Hey, it's Leann.


Okay. Just leave the alarm off. Thanks.


How was it?

It was a funeral. It sucked.

From now on, I only go to parties

where no one gets cremated.

How are Shelley's parents?

Considering their 24-year-old daughter

drowned in the backyard pond...

...they're great.

And you?

I knew Shelley.

We interned at Saint Luke's together.

I mean, she was not crazy.

I know, but the way she was

talking at the end was pretty...

Yeah, that doesn't mean

she killed herself.

That's not my ringtone.

It says it's from Shelley.

Who'd be calling from Shelley's phone?

That's creepy.

It's dated Monday, 10:17 p. m.

It's Friday. Maybe you just

set the date wrong.

Leann, what is it?


If you'd like to hear this message again... one.

Voice call received Monday,

June 12th, 10:
17 p. m.

I don't know,

it's the weirdest, weirdest thing.

It's like every time I

turn around, they're...

No! Aaah!

That's your voice.

That's you.



Cut me a break, man.

No, man, you know what the price is.

You gotta hit it right.

All right. Give me that.

All right, slow down, homie.


Yeah. They're real nice.

Detective Andrews. Yeah.

A group of hikers found her.

We held off on the autopsy

until you got here, detective.

Even so, your sister was out

there for more than a week.

There's really no need for you to do this.


Oh, jeez.

In cases of severe and repeated

childhood abuse...

...the posttraumatic-stress model

may be valid.

Long-term effects may include

sexual dysfunction, amnesia...

...dissociation, even hallucinations

and multiple personalities.

The post-trauma child...

...faces formidable developmental tasks...

...and among these what we call

"dissociative virtuosity. "

The post-trauma child

will form primary attachments... develop a sense of basic trust...

...and to preserve a sense

of hope and meaning in life.
