Is he in his room?

He's sleeping.

Let's not make any sound.


I thought we weren't

making any sound.

Where are you?

- I'm right here.

- Oh, there you are.


He wouldn't listen to my

free throw shooting advice.

You're the blind father

giving basketball advice now?

Yes. Yes, I am.


I used to be quite

the all-star player, you know?

- Mm-hmm.

- I was!

How's my favorite

blind man doing?

Still very much in the dark.

Now we're even.

Will you do

the silly dance for me?



- No.

- Come on, please.

- No way.

- Come on.

You're really

gonna make me do it?


I'm not buying up.


Oh, fine.

I bet you look

so good right now.

Oh, Bob told me a story today.

Honey, I have

to get up early tomorrow.

Fine. Okay. I won't tell you.

It's a good story, though.

Okay, fine. Let's hear it.

Hmm. All right, so...

There's this man...

And he really wants

to win the lottery.

So, he prays to god.

Every night for 50 years.

Night, after night,

after night, he prays.

"Please god, please,

let me win the lottery."


And finally,

an angel goes to god,

and he says,

"god, why don't we let

this guy win?"

And you know what god says?


God says,

"i want to..."

"But he's never bought

a lottery ticket."

- Oh.

- You see?

- It was a good story.

- Yeah, it's all right.

What's wrong?


Dear god, I'm thankful

for everything I have.

I am deeply satisfied with

my life and everything in it.

And I live for today,

and I enjoy what I do.

I do not compare myself

to others.


Yeah, son.

Is everything okay?

Yeah. Yeah, of course it is.

I was just getting some air.

Here, let's go back inside.

You have school tomorrow.

Come on.

Oh, my god.


What's wrong?

- I... I can see you.

- Huh?

I can see you.

How did this happen?



How did this happen?

How did this happen?

I don't... I don't...

How can a pituitary tumor

just disappear overnight?

It didn't disappear, it shrank.

It is rare, but not unheard of.

But the good news is

it's normally pushing up

against the optic chiasm.

Which is how he can see?


We'll only keep him here

for a few days.

We just wanna make sure

there isn't cause for concern.

So, you need to admit him?

Just for a few days.

Welcome home!

They're brushing Joan out.

Oh, and I called your work,

talked to Bob.

He's gonna talk to them.

And hr told you to take

as much time as you need.

And they're fine with you not

coming in

until you feel up for it.

So, um...

Here, let me get that.

I can do that.

Oh, I know.

I'm just gonna call work

and tell them

that I'm not feeling well.

Stay home.

I need to do

something with my hair.

Now that you can see me.

I have no idea what to do now.

I'll go make us some lunch.


I'll... I'll be fine.

You know?

- I'll be fine.

- Yeah, I know.

Here I am.

This is crazy.

I know.

Took me 30 minutes

to find that place.

Does it hurt?

No. Nah.

No, not at all.

What did the doctor say?


Couldn't explain it.

So, it's a miracle?

Well, you could say that.

Are you gonna tell me

what happened to your face?

Mom said not to tell you.

She... she saw this?

She came at lunch.

They called her from school.


What happened?

Got into a fight.

It's not a big deal.

Well, who gave it to ya?

Don't worry about it.


Mom... mom said

she'll take care of it.

Jonah, who gave it to you?

You don't need

to worry about it.

Who told you that?

I just don't want you

to expect too much

and be disappointed.

Why would I be disappointed?

It's a little sad-looking.
