[Dramatic music]

[airplane engine roaring]

We parked it in 212.

Over here!

Over here!


You have good taste in cars.

All right,

I'll get it, sweetheart.

No, Dad, I got it.


Grandpa is waiting for us.

How about I let you

take them all out

when we get there, hmm?

No, Dad, I can do it.

I can.

Let him do it.



Watch out.

It's heavy.

Oh, yeah,

that's what I'm talking about.

You know,

before you know it,

he won't need me anymore.

It's okay, honey.

I'll always need you.

And not just

to carry your luggage?



Is there another way to go?

Try turning right

up here on Surawong.

Say hi.

- Hi.

- Hi.

How much longer to Grandpa's?

At this rate, a million years.

Did you really fly

all the way over here

the first time

just to meet Mommy?


Not quite.

I first met your grandpa

on business,

and then I had to come out here

on a trip,

and I met your mother.

And the rest is history.

I was born!

Where did we find this kid?

He's all you, honey.

Yeah, except looks.

Thank God he has your looks.

Group shot!


- Is this the turn right here?

- Yeah.

Come on, honey,

you don't want to miss the light.


Oh, come on,

you could have made it.

Down, Kyle.

We didn't fly

halfway around the world

to get a speeding ticket.

[Loud crash]

[Glass shattering]

[Slow breathing]


My God.

- That's all right.

- Rangsan.

I've been praying for this,


Dr. Anand said

we should never give up hope.

How long?

I had you moved here

to my condo two weeks ago.

You were in the hospital

three weeks before that.


and Kyle?

Jeff, I'm sorry.

They did everything they could.

We just...

We lost them.

[Somber music]

Keep the drip at 100ccs.

You can begin to taper off

once he starts

accepting fluids orally.

Yes, of course.

Other than that,

he checks out great.


The shunt site's healing well.

- All right.

- It's quite remarkable.

Now, it will take some time

for him to stabilize.

He could still have

some bruising on the cerebellum.

As you know, Rangsan,

I'm always available for you.

Thank you, Doctor.

I've got Choi here full-time

with Jeff.

I have to leave town for a week.

If you need to reach me,

Choi has all

my international numbers.

Do you want

to try some of this?

No, no, no.

No, it's all right.

I'll give it to you.

Who are you?


You're right.

My name is Choi.


Try a little ice.


There you go.

Group shot!



Are you all right?


Yes, I'm fine.

No, I got it.

I got it.


[High-pitched tone]

[Eerie moaning]

Do you need some help?


No. No.

- You're okay, right?

- Yes.

- Okay, you sure?

- Yeah, I'm fine.


Don't you ever have a day off?

Not when I'm working.

How about

when you're not working?

I live with my mother.

But usually I'm not on a job

this long.


Usually my job

only lasts a few weeks.

I mainly do

end-stage hospice care.


You mean people who are dying?


That's a cheerful job.

I guess I fooled you,

didn't I?

Yes, you fooled me.

So it's a first

for both of us.

Let's see how you feel

in the morning,

and if you're sure

you want to go,

I'll take you to the temple.

I'd like that.

- Good night.

- Good night.

[High-pitched tone]


[Indistinct voices]

[Woman sobbing]

[Electronic beeping]

Are you all right?

Somebody's hurt...

a woman.

Something's wrong.

A woman?


Right next door.

The hallway to the elevator

is on the other side.

Are you sure it's not from...
