7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 4, Episode 11 - Forget Me Not - full transcript

Robbie fears Eric will never give him a chance when told, now his and Mary's community service goes so well they can meet, but only at home. Super hot Brad Landers finally asks Lucy on a ...

Man, watching you
two is worse than

having to sit through a
chick movie or something.

Forget it-- I'm going
to the library.

What's wrong?

Maybe I shouldn't go away
to New York this weekend.

Come on, you have to find
a place to live.

School starts in January.

I still can't believe
I'm going to NYU.

Still can't believe it, either.

But-but it's great,
and you're going,

and you need a place to live.

Most guys would be

pressuring me to stay.

You are the best boyfriend ever.

Long distance relationships
aren't easy,

but I know we can make it work.


You wanted
to see me?

Uh, your supervisor from the
diversion program called.


Uh, she's very happy
with your work.

And so are we.

You passed your
30-day evaluation
with flying colors.

That's great.

We're really
proud of you.

I never would have made it
this far without Robbie.

It really helps to have
someone to talk to

who understands exactly
what I'm going through.

You know, someone who's been
arrested and everything.


They're still on
separate work shifts

down at the program,
aren't they?

Yes, but we said Robbie
could call her, remember?

Well, that was a mistake.



Brad Landers wants to take me
out after school tomorrow

for a burger to thank me
for all the help

I've given him in math class.

Wow, there is a B-list,
an A-list,

and then there is...

Brad Landers.

Okay, so why aren't you
screaming or something?

Because tomorrow,
I'm supposed to install toilets

at the Habitat House.

Installing toilets
or a date with Brad Landers.

That's a no-brainer.

But I can't just cancel
on Habitat for a guy.

Can I?

They only have to know
you're canceling for a guy

if you tell them
you're canceling for a guy.

Hey. Still spending tomorrow
night over at Matt's?

It's gonna be great.

You seem
pretty excited.

Well, I really miss Matt--
I mean, I know he's here

all the time eating and stuff,

but he never really has time
to hang out with me anymore.

But tomorrow night,
it's gonna be

just the two of us,
like it used to be.

What are you just
standing there for?

There are only two weeks left
until the end of the year.

At the end
of the year

comes the millennium,
and that's big trouble.

Hey, the millennium
is nothing to laugh at.

And January 1,

all sorts of things
could fail and fall apart.

Cars will stop running, people
will get trapped in elevators,

credit cards won't work.

It'll be bedtime.

I think you mean "bedlam."

What's the difference?

To you, not much.


What a nice surprise.

Wh-Where's Dad?

I don't know.


What do you mean
you don't know?

What's going on?

Um, Annie, honey, your father,


I don't know where he is.

Just call us as soon as
you know anything.

Yeah, yeah, anything
that would be of help.

Even if they don't
know absolutely,

just call.

I, uh, I hope I'm
not worrying the kids.

Well, I told them that Dad
had to stay in Phoenix

and that he'd probably be
here sometime tomorrow.

Oh, you can stay
in Simon's room

and he can bunk
in with Ruthie.

I don't want to be any trouble.

You're not trouble,
you're family.

Okay, Sergeant Michaels
is out looking for Charles.

Plus, he's called
in a few off-duty
officers to help,

and he's got bulletins
out to the neighboring
police departments.

Why do you think Dad is
heading toward Glenoak?

Well, ever since
the diagnosis,

I mean, he's been talking
a lot about you and the kids.

The diagnosis?

Oh, I'm sorry.

This is not the way
I wanted to tell you.

Tell us what?

About three months ago,

I started noticing some little
changes in Charles' behavior.

What changes?

Difficulty in

buttoning his shirt, uh,

trouble saying certain words,

feeling lost
in familiar places,

misplacing things.

And, uh, so we went
to see the doctor.


And, after
a battery of tests,

your father was
diagnosed as being

in the very early stages
of Alzheimer's.

I-I couldn't tell you this
on the phone,

I just couldn't.

And so I just, um,
hopped on a plane

and headed here.

Are you saying

that my Dad
has Alzheimer's?

I'm afraid so.

Can't believe
it's almost finished.

I know.

Habitat for Humanity

is so cool.

I don't think I can
help out after school.

Something just came up.


We'll all
cover for you.

You will?

Sure, that's what
friends are for.

I owe you. Thanks.

Shut up.


How'd you get in here?

I have my ways.

Shouldn't you be
at your school?

Yes, I should, but since
your parents won't let us

work together, this is the
only way I can see you.

Maybe not the only way.

I passed my 30-day evaluation

and my parents are really happy
about it, so I think now

is the perfect time
to ask them for permission

for us to go out on a date.

A date-date?


Your parents wouldn't even
let us pick up trash together.

They're never gonna let me
take you out on a date.

Never say never.

Are you still going fishing
with your dad this weekend?

Not just fishing,

My dad's taking me camping, so
I can earn another merit badge.

He thinks I'm gonna make
Eagle Scout before I turn 16.

You can come
if you want.

I can't.

I'm gonna hang out
at my big brother's apartment.

We're gonna do guy stuff.

"Guy stuff"?

Well, you know, stay up late,
talk about girls,

not take showers, talk about
girls, eat bad food...

...talk about girls.


Man, my brother doesn't
even talk to me.

You are so lucky.

What's wrong with you?

What makes you think
there's something wrong?

Oh, my mistake.

You often sit around
in your pajamas

eating Cocoa Puffs
in the middle of the afternoon.

I'm a little depressed.

And you hide it so well.

This morning,

when I was shaving, I realized
that Shana's going to NYU.

You told her to go.

I know, but now
she's really going.

She's looking for
a place to live,

and there's nothing
I can do to stop her.

So you two will have to have
a long distance relationship,

that's all.

I mean, a lot
of people do it.

Well, long distance
relationships never work out.

She'll leave, I'll stay,
and for the rest of my life,

I'll always think of her
as the one that got away.

So you're
saying that

after the millennium,
there won't be any toilet paper?


Stop that.

Y2K is serious.


Where did you hear that?

My friend Ben.

He has a computer
and he surfs it.

You mean he surfs the Web?

That's what I just said.


So what about
Ben's parents?

Don't they monitor
what he does on the computer?

No, and he's on the computer
all the time.

You know what I think
you should do

to prepare for the millennium?

Stay away from Ben.

I didn't ask you out
just to thank you.

I have ulterior

And a good vocabulary.


You were saying?

I've had a crush on you
since the ninth grade.

Every time I worked up enough
courage to ask you out,

you were always dating someone.

I'm single now.

I know.

Do you know Susan Gertz

from our school?

Maybe that's why she and her
friends have been

staring at us
since they came in.

Could you excuse me
for just one second?

Hi. This is not

what you think it is.

I think we all know
exactly what this is.

You blew off the
project to have burgers

with some guy.

What kind of woman are you?

Is this a bad time

to ask for a favor?
-Uh, it depends on the favor.

I was thinking
that since I'm doing

so well
at the diversion program,

maybe I could have
permission to go out

on a date tomorrow with Robbie.

We won't go far,

just out to the pool
hall or something.

I don't think so.

But you and Mom told me that
if I did well at the program,

you'd let me go out with Robbie.

We said we'd consider it.

Then consider it.



He's been in trouble.

So have I.

If you go out with Robbie
and something

bad happens,
you could get kicked out

of diversion program
and face sentencing.

Dad, come on.

I'm not going to change
my mind on this one.

Why am I working so hard

if-if you're never
going to trust me?

Or never let me go out
on a date or have fun?

I mean, what's
the point?

You're not being fair.

Neither are you.

Hello? Dad,
is that you?

Yes, honey, it's me.

We've been so worried.

I know; I called Phoenix
and I talked to Ginger's son.

Well, Ginger's here.

That's what her son said.

Well, where have you been?

Well, I was on the way
to Glenoak,

then I saw a sign
for the Sagebrush Motel.

Remember the motel that

your mother and I used
to stay at when we took

our fishing trips together?
-Yes, I know the Sagebrush.

I just couldn't
resist the impulse

to take a little trip
down memory lane.

But when I got to the motel,
it was so late

that I just decided to get
a room and stay the night.

He stayed last night
at the Sagebrush Motel.

Where is he now?

Where are you now?

I don't really know.

Well... don't worry,
I'll have Eric come and get you.

Why would you do that?

Because you don't know
where you are.

Oh, honey, I don't know
what city I'm in,

but I know how to get
to Glenoak from here.

Listen, give Ginger my love,
and I'll see you soon.

- He's on his way here.

Thank goodness.

I'm so relieved.

What is it?

It's just that he sounded
so... normal.

Like he always does.

Like my dad.


-Oh, sweetheart.
-Hello, sweetheart.

Hi buddy, good
to see you.

Come here, come here.

I was so worried.

-Are you okay?

-I'm fine. I'm fine.
-Well, that's good.


Um, Ginger, could I
talk to Dad alone?


Is something
wrong with Eric?

-Is it his heart again?

Well, then what is it?
I know something's the matter.

Eric's fine.

Do you want to sit down?

No, I want to know
what's going on.

Ginger told me about
the Alzheimer's.

She told you?

Well, she thought
I should know.

Well, I do, too, but I'm
surprised she said anything.

I mean, she's been
having a hard time

even accepting the fact
that she had it.

She hasn't even told
her children yet.

Wait. Ginger has Alzheimer's?

Who did you think
I was talking about?

Ginger said you
had Alzheimer's.

Me? No.

No, I'm fine.

Ginger, on the other hand,

has been forgetting things

and misplacing
things, and...

You just up and disappeared
from Phoenix.

Ginger didn't
misplace you, did she?

She knew I was coming here.

I told her two weeks ago.

She just forgot.

We've been going
through a lot lately,

and, well, we needed a break.

So I planned

a visit to come and
see you and Eric
and the kids.

I don't have Alzheimer's.

You believe me,
don't you?

Look, I found the
Sagebrush Motel, right?

A place I haven't even
been to in 30 years.

Now, could a man with
Alzheimer's do that?

I don't think so.

Don't worry, honey.

Ginger's going to be
okay; she'll be fine.

You want to go out?

Shana might call.

You want to watch some TV?

It'll just make me
think of Shana.


what can we do that won't
make you think of Shana?

Everything makes me
think of Shana.



Oh, man, sit down,

stay awhile,
please stay awhile.


Much later.

Hey, you seem
a little low.

I kind of lied

to my Habitat friends,
so I could go out

with this really cute guy.

But then my friends

saw me with the
really cute guy, so
now they know that...

That you lied?

Not "kind of" lied,

but lied, right?

Yeah, okay, I lied.

And I feel like such a heel,
and I'm really sorry I did it.

Well, don't tell me,
tell your friends.


Can we talk?

Look, if Robbie wants
to spend time with you,

he can come over and spend
time with you here,

at the house under
our supervision.

I promise, once we've

gotten to know him
a little better,

we'll revisit
the dating issue.

That's a pretty fair offer.

I'm a pretty fair guy.

I know.


What am I supposed
to be helping you with again?

My millennium project.

-Ben says,

to successfully survive
the millennium,

we need money and canned food.

I also need to learn
how to cook over fire.

Ben says, after the millennium,
there won't be any more stoves.

Oh... Who's Ben?

Susan, don't hang up.

Carol and Lisa already did.

That's because you lied to us.

I know. I'm sorry.

I just thought
if I said no to Brad,

he might not ask me out again.

Look, we all have
things in our lives:

boyfriends, jobs, schoolwork.

You have to prioritize.

Decide what's important to you.

No one is forcing you

to be a part
of the Habitat project.

But if you're going to do it,
people are depending on you.

So you have to show up
when you're scheduled.

If everyone canceled,
where would we be?

Ginger's really upset.

She said I should
talk to you.

Wh-What's going on?

-My Dad doesn't
have Alzheimer's.

And Ginger is upset
because I told her

that I know that she's
the one with Alzheimer's.

Who-who told you that?



I just spent five minutes
with your father upstairs,

and there's
definitely something off.

I've been around a
lot of people with
Alzheimer's and...

And what?

There's definitely something
not right with your father.

He's upset. And so am I.

-That's not it.
-How do you know?

I mean, here he is,

coping with Ginger's diagnosis,

knowing that he's
the one that's going

to have the burden
of caring for her

in the years to come.

Now, that's an awful lot
for any person to handle.

He's a little off
because he's stressed.

My father does not
have Alzheimer's.

Well, aren't you
going to answer that?

If it's Shana,
I don't want her to know

I'm just sitting here
missing her.

That's crazy, you do miss her.

Yes, but she doesn't know that.

Hey, this is Matt...

And John.

Leave us a message at the beep.

Matt, are you there?

Pick up if you are.

Pick up.

-You're nuts.

Maybe, but I'm still
not picking up that phone.

Okay, I guess you're not there.

Well, I will...

Don't hang up, don't
hang up-- I'm here.

Hey, I almost missed you.

Yeah, I was uh, in the bathroom.


I-I found a place to live.

Uh-huh. What's all that noise?

Brett's throwing a party
so I can meet some people.

Who's Brett?

It's a great apartment.

Good. Who's Brett?

Oh, he's one of the guys
I'm moving in with.

You're moving in
with a bunch of guys?

You have no idea how hard it is
to find a place in Manhattan.

I met Brett
and these other guys,

and they need a fourth.

I'll have a bedroom to myself...



She's moving
into a frat house.

So I have some good news.

I got your message.
What's up?

My parents said we can
see each other.

That's great.

But we can't go
out-out, exactly.

Um, we can have
sort of a home date.

They just want
to get to know you

a little bit better
and when they do,

they'll see how great
you are and then...

It's not going to work.

Why do you say that?

Because when your parents
look at me,

all they see is trouble.

And that's never going to change
no matter how much time I spend

at your house
sucking up to them.

Come on, just give it a chance.

I really like you, and I want
to spend time with you,

but I don't think your parents
are gonna ever let that happen.

They're just stalling, hoping
you give up and I go away.

Well, I'm never
going to give up.

You mean too much to me.

But you're stronger than I am.

What is that supposed to mean?

I think it means that I don't

want to come
to your house tomorrow.

I'm getting a really...
bad feeling here.

Are we breaking up?

Thanks for helping
me, Grandpa.

Glad to be of service.

What exactly are we doing?

Learning to cook over a fire.


First we need to
light the barbecue.

I'm not allowed to use matches.

So this is some sort
of school project?

Kind of.


So what are we cooking?

I'll be right back.

Watch the fire.

Is that...?


We smell smoke.

Yeah, it's coming
from the backyard.

There's a fire
in the backyard.

Dad! Dad!


Annie, hi.

Are you okay?

I remember the day I taught you
to ride your first two-wheeler.

And you fell off

and you skinned
both your knees.

Dad, the fire.

What happened?

What's all the commotion?

So what's wrong with Grandpa?

Well, he's got something
called Alzheimer's.

What's that?

It's something
that makes it hard

for Grandpa to remember things.

Yeah, like, "Watch the fire."

I need to talk
to Ruthie.

I'm in trouble, aren't I?

Yes and no.

I get a choice?

No, what I mean is,

you shouldn't have lit
a fire in the barbecue,

but you did ask
an adult to help.


So why'd you do it?

I have to know
how to cook over fire.

Why's that?

The millennium.

There won't be any stoves.

Says who?

Ben, my friend at school.

And who told Ben that?

His parents, I guess.

But there's stuff about
the millennium everywhere.

I want to tell
you a story.

After the story,
will someone

be getting punished?

Well, that depends on whether
someone learns a lesson or not.

I'm all ears.

Well, 60 years ago,

an actor named Orson Welles
read a story on the radio

about an invasion from Mars.

It's called The
War of the Worlds.

And a lot of people who heard
the story thought that the Earth

was actually being
invaded by Martians.


It may seem funny
now, but back then,

if it was on the radio,
people thought it was true.

What happened?

A lot of people

I mean, they ran out
into the streets,

some called the police,
others hid in their cellars.

You know, later,
people realized that
what they'd heard

on the radio wasn't real
and no one needed to panic.

Now, I'm not saying the
millennium is make-believe,

or that there aren't real
concerns about problems

that could happen
on January 1.

What I'm saying is that
not everything you hear or read

about the millennium is true,

no matter whether it's on
the news or in a paper or...

In Ben's computer.


'Cause when the millennium
happens, if everybody panics,

there'll be a lot bigger things
to worry about than...

A fire in the barbecue.


Did I learn a lesson?

I just walked away for a second.

I made a mistake,
I'm sorry.

We have to talk about this.

There's nothing
to talk about.

I'm fine.

I really think that
you're overreacting.

Dad, you almost set
the house on fire!

I do not have Alzheimer's.

Dad, don't be afraid.

You don't have to go
through this alone.

I'm here,

Eric's here,
the kids, Ginger.

I don't have Alzheimer's!

-End of discussion!

I think Ginger and
I ought go home.

It's too late.

We'll leave first
thing in the morning.


So is Robbie coming
over tomorrow?



Do you really care?

Come on,
isn't this exactly

what you wanted, Robbie gone?

If that were true,

I never would have invited him
over to the house.

Well, doesn't matter
what you want

or what I want.

What matters is Robbie
doesn't want to come over here.

How's your father?

In denial,
just like I was.

I really owe Ginger an apology.

Oh, we're gonna
get through this.


So why did Ruthie set
fire to the barbecue?

The millennium.

She's eight.

What does she know
about the millennium?

You'd be surprised.

I think I helped her see
that there's more than one way

to look at the end of 1999.


Oh, Simon called,
and he doesn't want

to spend the night at Matt's.

He'll have to stay
in Ruthie's room.

Yeah, I told him that,
but he doesn't care.

-Must be really bad.

I'll go get him.

Oh, um, will you
stop at a store?

We're almost
out of milk.

Brad, it's Lucy.

Hey. So I had fun
at the pool hall today.

Me, too.

Great. Then come to the movies
with me tomorrow afternoon.

Look, I like you,

but if I say yes to you,
I have to say no

to something else,
and I already did that once.

Is "something else" another guy?


There's no other guy.

Then I don't see the problem.

I can't see you anymore.


I volunteered for something
a long time ago,

and I'm committed
to seeing it through.

I just want to take you to the
movies, not change your life.

You don't understand.

I'm Superman,
and you're kryptonite.


When you're around me,
I feel powerless,

because I like you so much
I'm willing to blow off

other things
just to be with you.

And doing stuff like that
is the old me, not the new me.

I'm sorry,

but it's just the way
it's got to be.



I didn't know you, uh...

You didn't know I worked
at a grocery store on weekends?

Did you know
I made

the honor roll
at my high school?

Or that I'm doing so well
in the diversion program

they're considering
letting me out early?

No, I didn't.

Wow. Guess you don't know me

as well as you thought you did.

I know you about as well
as you know me.

But I'm willing to get
to know you better.

You can get

to know me a little better,

and then... who knows
what could happen?

Why do you even care?

Because my daughter does.

Now, why don't you

want to come over
to the house tomorrow?


I'm going home.


I understand you have different
things in your life now,

but this weekend
was supposed to be

like old times.

You know, you and me
hanging out.

But you know what
it was instead?

Me, watching you obsess
over your girlfriend.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, too.

I'm sorry I came.

What's going on?

Oh, no way, man; you're
way out of control.

Get ready for
some tough love.

Give me that
stupid cereal box.

So what happened?

I'd rather not talk about it.


Life is so unfair.

I mean, one minute you have
this great big brother.

The next, you have some
guy who sits around

in his pajamas
eating cereal out of the box,

moaning about his girlfriend.

Well, why does everything
have to change?

I mean,

I know Matt had to move out
and go to college,

but why can't things
be the way they used to be?

Change is... it's part of life.

A bad part.

No, that's
not true.

It's just that

you have to keep changing
to really keep living.

Change or die?

These are my options?


are like school.

There's a new lesson every day.

And if you're aware of that,

you can learn something
all the time,

every day.

Brothers, sisters,
uncles, aunts, fathers,

mothers, husbands,
wives, friends,

teachers, boyfriends,

they're all relationships,
and they're constantly changing.

At-at what point
in this conversation

do you start
making me feel better?

I know now
that Dad's not well.

You know, I felt
just like you did

when I first found
out about Charles.

I didn't want to
believe it, either.

You don't know
how many times

that I wanted
to call you,

and to tell you...
and talk to you.

I can't imagine what you
must be going through.

Well, it's... hard.

But I've got my kids.

My sister is
close by and...

And you have us.

You have me and Eric,
and we're going to make sure

that Dad gets the best
medical care possible.

That's not the problem.

The problem is getting
him to accept the fact

that he has to deal
with this.

You see, I'm afraid
to leave him alone.

You saw what happened
with the barbecue.

But if he doesn't
believe that there's
anything wrong with him,

It's hard to convince him
that he needs someone...

when I'm not there.

I mean...
what if he, uh,

he takes off again?

What if he goes somewhere
and forgets how to get home?


he forgets what his name is?


Oh, sweetheart.


I didn't know I was
scaring everyone, I...

I'm sorry, I...

It's just that...

if I agree with the
doctors that they're right,

then I have to start
facing up to this thing.

I-I don't know if I can.

We're going to
get through this.

We are.

You're not alone.

I almost didn't recognize you
without your pajamas.

Can I come in?


What if I come
bearing an apology?

You can apologize
from out there.

I'm sorry about last night;
I was stupid and selfish.

Not to mention inconsiderate

and thoughtless.

Are you also sorry
that because of you,

I had to spend the night
sleeping on Pokémon sheets

surrounded by Hello Kitty

Yeah, that, too.

Okay, apology accepted.


So what happened
with Shana and Brett?

You mean, Brett,
Shana's new roommate?

Are you guys going to be okay?

Long distance relationships
are hard,

but it's not the worst thing
that could've happened to us.


do you want to go
to the Crawford football game

with me this afternoon?


And I'm coming, too.

And I invited Nigel.

Matt and I both agree it's time
to start a new tradition...

big brother/little brother day.


You might not have
realized it last night, but...

I miss having you around.

If you guys are gonna start
getting mushy, I'm out of here.

What are you doing?

Spending time with
you, any way I can.

I talked to Susan Gertz,
your Habitat friend,

and she said they could
use another volunteer
down at the house.

You'd do that for me?

I am doing that for you.

There's just
one problem,

you should know, I almost
flunked out of shop.

Which end of this
thing do I use?

Just stick close to me.

That's the plan.

Hi, Ruthie.

Hey, Ben.

Hi, I'm Eric Camden;
I'm Ruthie's dad.

Hi, I'm Ken.
This is my wife, Sally.

Can we help you with something?

Uh, Ben's been
telling Ruthie

some interesting stories

about the millennium.

What kind of stories?

Well, Ruthie almost
set fire to our house,

because Ben told her
that she needed to
learn how to cook

on a barbecue because,
after the millennium,

there won't be any stoves.

Why are you here?

I think there's been
a lot of, you know,

hysteria associated
with the millennium,

and maybe Ben
picked up

on some of your anxiety.

We're not anxious; we're calm.

We have CB radios,
blankets, food,

a water purifier,

a gas powered generator,

a large first aid kit,
two satellite phones,

plenty of cash and...

and our child knows

how to cook over fire.

Okay, nice talking to you.

I thought you were
going to tell them

about The War
of the Worlds.

Well, maybe
some other time.

What are you
doing here?

I had a long talk
with your dad last night.

You did?

He's not half bad.

He isn't?

He's just looking
out for you,

being overprotective.

You know, dad stuff.

So I agreed to you know,
come hang out of the house

and let your parents
get to know me,

and your dad agreed
to give me a chance

and not to judge me
based on my past.

So does this mean
we're back together?

What do you think?

Thank you again for making
the time to see us

on such short notice,
Dr. Burns.

Call me Nancy.

Dr. Hastings filled me
in on your situation.

I don't understand
why I'm here.

I have a doctor
in Phoenix.

Yes, I know; I spoke with your
doctor, who's a neurologist.

I'm a gerontologist.

And I think Dr. Hastings
asked me to speak with you

because I see a lot
of Alzheimer's patients.

I feel that the hardest
part of Alzheimer's

is the initial diagnosis.

It's scary, and you don't know
what to expect

or what lies ahead.

It's important to remember
that you are not alone.

Every year, thousands
of people find themselves

in the same position
that you're in right now.

There's something that
I like to tell

my newly-diagnosed patients,
and it may sound strange, but...

I think that with every
problem, there's a gift.

With Alzheimer's,
the gift is time.

It's time with your family,
time with your wife...

-But eventually, I'm going
to lose my memory, right?

Memory loss is inevitable
with Alzheimer's.

You'll lose your short-
term memory first,

and for awhile,
hopefully a long while,

you'll retain
your long-term memory.

So, someday...

you may not
recognize your wife.

But you'll
still be here,

and you'll be able to sit
with her on a porch

and enjoy a sunset together.

What about later on?

I know things are going
to get worse, not better.

Alzheimer's progresses
very slowly,

and luckily you're
in the early stages,

and that can last

for many, many years.

But you should know that there's
a program called Safe Return

that uses ID bracelets

and clothing labels

to help locate and return
memory-impaired loved ones.

Plus, there are many
support groups

and senior day care centers
all over the country

that are there to provide you
with some help and assistance.

And you're very lucky.

You obviously have a family

that's very invested
in seeing you receive
the best care available.

Give yourself some
time to adjust.

And here's some pamphlets
from the Alzheimer's Association

that I think
you should read.

Also, my card with my
phone number on it.

Call me anytime, day or night,

with whatever problems or
questions that you might have.

When faced
with a physical

or medical challenge,
a positive attitude is key.

It may be hard to grasp
right now,

while it is true that your life
is going to change,

it's not over.

It's just

the beginning of a new chapter.

Thank you, Doctor.

Mom was so beautiful.

They used to call her
the Pink Cloud.

The Pink Cloud?

When we were dating, I
would take her out dancing.

She had this...
pink chiffon dress.

And the way she twirled
around the dance floor...

the Pink Cloud.

I remember when
you were born.

I hadn't been a
husband that long,

and there I was,
moments away from
being a father.

And I was just
so scared.

Then the nurse came out
and put you in my arms,

and all my fears
just went away.

You did that.

You made everything better.

I love you, Dad.

I love you, too.

I think I'd like to...

rest my eyes a bit
before dinner.
