Had a big one, Dr. C?

Another day, another life.

Oh, hell yeah.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you.

And he is out. Can't feel a thing.

That's what she said.

I mean, I'm good, but I can't fix that.

Okay. Give me a 5/1 suture

on a C1 needle.

Stitch to cannula.


- Hello?

- How ya doing, pal?

It's Kenny. You got a sec?

Ah, yeah.

Father of the groom. Are you psyched?

- Yeah...

- Look, I know you got stuff.

But we got a bit of a jam going on,

a lot of people didn't check off

whether they want steak or fish.

I was wondering if you had an idea

what your side of the family

would want more,

Then we don't have to over-order.

- Uh...

- Take your time.

Well, maybe a steak by a little.

Oh, that's great!

- So, would you say...

- No.

...maybe 60% steak, 40% fish or...

Uh, you know, I can still help you pay

for the wedding if you'd let me...

No, no! I got this. All good here, pal.

The wedding, the hotel rooms. Mmm!

Yeah. Pinky Toe! Get down! Down!

Get her down!

She shouldn't be up here.

Uh, you know what?

Uh, could you hold on for a second?

Yeah, not a problem.

No, no, no! Take her off the table.

Because she's licking the cookies,

and, yes, I'll still eat them.

Hello? Ugh! Damn it!

- Hey.

- Hi!

Can you believe it's in five days?

It's like, is this really happening?

I mean in a good way!

Yeah, it's great.

I just have one question for you

as a doctor.

Um, I read about this candy being recalled

due to salmonella.

And I was buying candies

for the wedding...

Of course, now I can't think of the brand.

You know what? Maybe text it later.

It was a peppermint bark,

and also a drizzled peanut brittle.

Very nice.

Me and the girls were taste-testing.

But now I'm reading

salmonella could be fatal?

Well, actually, that's pretty rare.

I mean, the only deaths I've seen reported

are children under three.

Oh, thank God! Yay!

Okay, well, mine are older.

So 15 is okay then, right?

Even if she got her period late?

What the hell are we...

Here, hand me the phone. Hi.

Hey! Okay, we're done bothering you, pal.

Go back to doing whatever you were doing.

Sounds good. See you.

I wanna talk to you.

I am so sorry

I'm such an embarrassment to you!

I just wanted to know if my family

was in jeopardy from salmonella!

You couldn't google it

like everything else you google?

So now I over-google?

You wasted the man's time!

He's a heart doctor.

- Did you not hear the beepy things?

- I know how beeps work!

They were normal beeps, not long beeps!

I never would have bothered him

during a long beep!

Oh, my God. That's so cute.

The toothbrush for you,

the stethoscope for Tyler.

You like it?

I will pay for it

like every other girl's parents do!

- And it's gonna be great!

- It was Isaac's idea.

Of course it is!

You're an amazing father!

- You're just tense!

- I'm not tense!

Okay! Hey, everybody!

Grapes of Wrath, Rose, good choice.

You still gotta read the book, though.

- Have you read it, Dad?

- I'm gonna read it with you.

Tyler, you're gonna take him to practice?

That's not gonna stress you out?

- Oh, yeah, no big deal.

- All right.

I'm gonna go to the airport

and pick up Uncle Seymour.

- Who's that?

- He's Dad's grand-uncle.

He's the oldest living Lustig.

Come on. You met him in Miami.

He's got all those great stories?

He's got one leg?

- Oh, right.

- Yeah, you're gonna love him.

What are you doing?

Why're you walking like this?

- Are they too tight on you?

- No, my feet are swollen.

- I'll go to Penney's. I'll return them.

- No, they fit. I'm just breaking them in.

It's so she doesn't walk like that

at the wedding, Mr. Lustig.

- Okay, okay. What's my favorite candy bar?

- The Whatchamacallit.

- Who's my favorite first daughter?

- Me.

- I love you.

- Love you. Bye.

- I love you.

- Thank you, Mr. Lustig.

Here they come.


- You got him from here?

- Oh, you're not his nurse?

Sir, I work for the airline.

I'm not a nurse.

What? No, I was saying

because of the wheelchair...

This is an airport wheelchair.

And I'm actually gonna need it back.

Someone needs it more, sir.

Oh! Someone needs it more than this guy?

Okay. Okay.

How was your trip, pal?

Oh. Oh!



- No legs?

- Yeah. Why?

I thought he still had one.

You didn't tell me.

Well, maybe you never asked.

That's diabetes. Works fast.

- Terrible.

- Yeah.

Okay, anything else? I'm at work.

Okay. Why is he alone?

What, you think I got time

to come in early?

World doesn't stop, bud.

I'm running a pharmacy here.

Uh, look, just call me later

and I'll give you all the instructions.

Instructions? What instructions?

You know, changing, his upkeep,

all that stuff.

- So, he doesn't have a nurse?

- Oh, calm down!

The doc says he can go 48 hours

without another cleaning

- if you don't have time.

- What's a "cleaning"?

- We'll talk. I got a customer.

- Wait!

So, he's gonna stay

at the hotel all alone?

You're putting him in a hotel? He's 87!

It's just, there's so much going on

at the house already...

The man is 87!

Okay, I'm taking him home!

Oh, so, how's the painting going, Seymour?

You still doing the ceramics?


Just tell Sarah to help you.

Move my desk and fold out the sofa.

You were gonna put him

in a hotel? With no legs?

I didn't know about the no legs!

It's fine. It's one person.

Yes. Um, just... I'll be another hour.
