You're available to start

right away?


I'm not really seeing a lot of restaurant

experience on the, uh, resume.

I've always had, um, summer jobs,

but, yeah, mostly retail.

So, did you drop out of

school, or...

Why'd you come

all the way back here?

Oh, no, um...

Well, this is my home, and there

was an accident, so I have to

take care of my brother.

Well, I'll tell you

what I can do, um...

I'll talk to the owner.

Uh, I know they were looking

for, uh, wait staff with

experience, but...

Obviously you're smart, so maybe they'll,

um, work with you, so...

Sure, that'd be, great.

Maybe you could do, um,

host, if nothing else.

Oh, sure, definitely.

OK, I mean, I can't promise

anything, but, um...

Oh, no, yeah.

Maybe I'll let you know

by the end of the day.

Thank you so much.

Nice to meet you.

Nice meeting you.

I can make you

some eggs if you want.

Yeah, I can make 'em, too.

I'm gonna go back to the clinic

for a little while today.

Will you be OK here alone?

Something wrong?

Dr. Barden thinks that he can

help us cut some of the costs.


I... I have no idea.

But I'll find out.

So there'll probably be

some of this... Yeah?

Yeah, probably.

Thank you.

Oh, thank you.

Thank you both.

Um, Dr. Barden?

- The nurse said that I...

- Of course, come in.

Iris, good to see you.


Iris, Shepard Lambrick.


Dr. Barden's told

me much about you.

Iris, please, have a seat.


So... your brother.

He's quite sick, correct?

You can help him?

Well, let's just say that my

foundation has the ability to

improve his situation.

The Lambricks have funded

the building of clinics

all over the world.

Haiti, uh, Afghanistan...

schools, too.

Well, my brother

doesn't need a school.

You're right.

Absolutely right.

Because we're not talking

about that today.

Not at all.

My family also believes in

creating opportunities for...

Everyday people.

People who just haven't received

a fair shake in life...

People like you and your brother.

What do we have to do?

I'm hosting a dinner party

tomorrow night, and

I'd like you to join us.

Just me.

Just you... oh, but there'll

be other guests there.

Individuals that we'd

also like to help.

And the evening will culminate

with a game, of sorts,

and the winner...

will be taken care of.

Bills, school, house, everything.

A contest.

What if I don't win?

Well, then, you just don't win.

That's it.

Um, I'm sorry, Dr. Barden.

No, no offense to Mr. Lambrick,

but is this legit?

This is for real?

Very real, Iris.

Mr. Lambrick saved my life.

Not long ago, but before I met

you and your brother,

I was in the same position.

I'd already lost my wife.

I was on my way to losing

everything... this practice,


I had no place to turn.

I was invited to this

event, so I went.

You won?

He did, and I am proud to say

that the Lambrick foundation

came through on its promise.


You see what we might

be able to do for you.

Well, money would definitely

help, but my brother needs a

bone marrow transplant.

So, do you mind if I think this over?

- Um, it's just...

- Short notice.

It is, you're right.

Of course, yes.

Think it over.

Do that.


But R.S.V.P. By eight o'clock tonight,

if you do decide to join us.

And my staff will make

arrangements to pick you up.

Thank you.


When I say that we have the

ability to dramatically improve

your brother's situation,

Iris, it's not just the money

I'm talking about.

You win the game, and we can

bypass any waiting list and

locate a donor, immediately.
