Alli gillie:
wild wind

carry me

to a place

I'd rather be

wild wind

pure and strong

sing your siren song

hoo ooh ooh

hoo ooh ooh

how I dream

to ride with you

and see the sights

wild winds do

around the world

in 80 days

calling all the way


hoo ooh ooh

hoo ooh ooh

hoo ooh ooh

morning, Shannon.

I'm Dr. Baker.

You can call me Rita.

Technically, Shannon,

you had an accident.

However, there's concern

there was intent behind it,

so we're hoping

you'll let us find out.

You lost your dad, sweetheart.

That's got to hurt,

probably more than you know,

and they're gonna

want to make sure

you've begun

the process of healing

before they let you leave.

Before they let me leave?


They don't know anything.


Since I'm one of the "they,"

I'd have to disagree with you.

But I do agree

that I don't know you,

so the sooner you

let me work with you,

the sooner you

can get out of here.

[Door closes]

I can't believe

she didn't come.

Funerals aren't really

Emily's thing, okay?

You know, she...

Let's just leave it at that.

You're gonna have to give her

a little bit more time

and remember that she never had

her own children.

She never wanted kids.


If you're not hungry,

Shannon, just say so.

You don't have to pretend

to eat it or even like it,

but you will most certainly

not play with it.



This is my house, my rules.

Got it, honey lamb?


My house, my rules.


[Horn blares]

[Door opens]

Dave, Emily, right?


Welcome. You can call me Rita.


I'm curious to know if Shannon

said anything to you

about her mother.

That she died in childbirth

and her father

raised her on his own.

Well, that ain't

really what happened.

What did happen?

Jeff met Christine senior year.

They fell in love.

Unfortunately she got pregnant.

Christine's parents,

they didn't like

the idea that she

was gonna have a kid,

and, uh, Jeff and his mother,

I guess they decided would

take little Shannon

and, uh, disappear with her,

tell the other family

that the baby was dead.

Mother and family think

that the baby's dead,

and Shannon thinks

her mother's dead.

And it's gotta be made right.

Jeff never did it,

but he asked me to do it.

He said if anything

ever happened to him...

That I should go and, uh...

And I should tell

Shannon the truth

and tell her what happened

and tell her that

her mom was still alive.

Are you sure you want

to do this now?


I'm gonna tell her.

And would the two of you

continue raising Shannon?

Well, I could.

No, no, no, no, we couldn't.

No, we couldn't.

I see.

I'm so sorry.

It's all right.

Shannon, Dave has

something to tell you.

Do I get to leave the hospital?



Your father loved you

very, very much.

I hope you know that.

Yeah, of course.

And everything he ever did,

he felt he was doing

for the right reason,

even though it might

not have seemed like it.

What's going on?

Your mom,

your mother's still alive.


Your mother's still alive.

What is this?

Dave's gonna answer

all your questions, okay?

I'm here to help with the rest.

Did my daddy know?


He's been waiting for you.

Oh, hello, handsome.


You're such a sweetie.

Let's take a look.

You're not ready

to go home just yet.

Mm, how much longer,

Dr. Pearson?

He's not eating the way I want,

but with that will of his,

let's say

another 48 to 72 hours.

But that's just a guess.

Of course. [Pager beeping]

I have Dr. Pearson

returning Dr. Baker's call.

Dr. Baker,

what can I do for you?

I'm the staff psychiatrist

at South Florida

medical center.

Did you know a man

named Jeff Greene?


He died piloting a small plane.

I'm sorry.

Um, I appreciate that.

Uh, I haven't seen him

in over 16 years,

so I am not sure exactly

why you're calling me.

He left behind a daughter,


That's not funny.

No, it's not.

Your daughter needs you.

She's in a bad way.

Dr. Pearson?

I'm sorry, but I'm gonna to have

to call you back.

You okay, Dr. Pearson?


You know they make TV movies about this

kind of stuff, right?



You know, things happen, babe,

and we move on.

Both of you were lied to,

not just you,

and now you get

to heal together.

I'm not sure I know

how to do that.

None of us do until we do it.


No, no, no. Don't cry.


Ah, sweetie.

Hi, Shannon. I'm...


I'm Christine.

I'm gonna miss you

a little bit, kiddo.


Everything's gonna be fine.

It's gonna be okay.

Don't you worry.


You don't know.

You gotta trust me.

I promise.

It's gonna be all right.

You're right.

Nobody here knows

what's going to happen.

I mean, we only just heard

about each other a few days ago.

Oh, God.

Look, just because

I'm your mother,

it doesn't mean that you're gonna

have to make this permanent.

You have a life here,

and my life is there...


What I suggest

is let's give it the summer.

You hate it, you come back.

Keep in touch, don't keep in touch,

up to you.

But let's give it the summer.




[Plane engine roaring]

How's the barn doing?

Well, we picked up

another filly,

but, um...

What's wrong?

She's got a knee problem,

and, uh, looks like

it's a little worse

than I thought.
