7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 9, Episode 10 - Gratitude - full transcript

Shortly before Thanksgiving, the parents are still not home with the twins, who also are difficult now Eric has a cold and Annie somehow already blames him for ruining the family Thanksgiving again. Simon has brought his pregnant fiancée Georgia Huffington home, but she refuses to tell anyone else before they tell his parents. Later she tells him she lied not to lose him. Pregenant Lucy takes advantage of her condition and is moody, driving Kevin (who desperately tries to dress for a drug undercover job), and Matt, mad. Martin canceled camping because of the weather. Lucy faints in the supermarket, Matt's limited medical student knowledge makes it harder on the and Dr. Kline. When Ruthie calls from Puerto Rico, lonely as Carlos's family is occupied with the baby, Martin assures her Thanksgiving is celebrated in overseas territories too.


Go back to sleep.

I'm just getting
ready for work.

As who? Nelly?

I'm working undercover.

I need to fit in.
What do you think?

I need a hamburger.


No, two hamburgers.

Fresh, not frozen.

No bun, no mustard, no onions.

Just hamburger

and ketchup.

Hon, I've got to get to work,

and hamburger places don't
have hamburgers at breakfast.

You know how to
make a hamburger.

I do, but honestly,
I don't have time.

Your daughter's hungry,
and so is your wife.

A hamburger.

And make me some French fries.

Oh, and, uh...

...about the cap, anyone who
wears a hat backwards

over the age of 14 is a...

Way too much MTV, dude.


Yeah, and French fries.

Thank you.

Great, no hamburger.

I hate it when Mom
goes out of town.

Why can't anyone
else buy groceries?

Maybe she can live with a
grilled cheese sandwich.

Are you talking to me?

Yes, I've got to get to work.

Do you think a grilled
cheese sandwich will do?

Do what?

Hamburger with ketchup.

She wants ketchup.


Yes, Lucy.
She wants a hamburger.

She's pregnant.

No, I know the second part.

There's always
hamburger in there.

When are they coming back?

Uh, from Ginger's?

Don't tell me they're going
somewhere after Ginger's.

Would you relax?

They'll be home
sometime tonight.

They don't want to drive

on the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving.

It's the worst possible time;
everyone will be on the road.

Well, that was the plan.

It's a bad plan.

They should have
come home last night.

You're not going on some

undercover drug bust,
are you?

It's that obvious?

Oh, don't worry, I mean,

maybe they'll be too high
to notice you're a cop.

Great, gotta go.

Tell Lucy we're fresh out.

No, no, not my job.

Could you help me out here?

Okay, but be careful out there.

Hamburger... Simon.



You are not going
to get sick.

"Gesundheit" might
have been kinder.

You'll ruin Thanksgiving.

We already had

last week, and again
last night.

Well, now we're
having an encore

and you cannot get sick.

I took an antihistamine,
Echinacea, zinc

and Vitamin C--
1,000 milligrams.

1,000 milligrams?

That's right.
That's the correct amount.

Since when did you become
a medical expert?

Since our son
became "AAD."

"Almost a doctor."

I figured I'd look
things up to impress Matt.

Don't get sick.

That'll impress him.

Oh, great.

I'll go get the boys.

Maybe you're right.

Maybe we shouldn't tell them
until after the holidays.

Well, you're the one
insisting on telling them.

I'm having second thoughts.

You're not feeling any, like,
morning sickness, are you?

No, not at all.

Does anyone in this
family ever knock?

Where's gangsta rapper boy?

He got paged from work.

I'm his official

Where's my hamburger?

Come on, I'll take you out.

Okay, we'll go eat,

and then we'll go
pick out the turkey.

Another turkey?
Didn't we do that last week?

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving.
Don't you want a turkey?

I'm having turkey
with my wife in New York.

Right and why aren't
you back there already?

Oh, because Mom made
such a big deal about

there being some
family emergency here,

I... I was too
afraid to go back.

So, you're not
just sticking around

waiting for Simon to show up?

Something is going on.

Yeah, I'll just
get my car keys.

Simon has your car,

and he didn't come
home last night,

so, I'll drive
and you can answer

all my questions about Simon.

You need money?

No, I have money.

For now.

Just with school
and my job and...

the baby, I...

it's not enough money.

We'll figure it out.

Did you tell your
brother you wouldn't
be sleeping at home?

No, I just
kinda snuck out

without saying
anything to anyone.

Our son better never
do that to us.


Or daughter.

So, what do you want?

A boy or a girl?

I-I don't know.

I guess I've never
really thought about it.

I know.

I know sometimes it doesn't
seem real to me either.

A boy.

I'd rather have a girl.

Girls seem like a lot
of trouble to me, you know?

Why do you say that?

Is that some kind of
comment about me?

No, no, no, no, no.

I just grew up with
three sisters, that's all.

I... I don't know
why I said that.

It's okay.

It's okay, I guess I'm just
feeling a little sensitive.

I think a girl would be lucky
to have you for a father.

You sure that's
a free-range turkey?

This is a free-range turkey.

Oh, hey, good,
I gotta make sure

that I get organic yams
and sweet potatoes.

Organic yams?

You're scarfing
down pork rinds.

They're sodium-reduced low fat.

Right, and full of vitamins.

No, protein.
You know, you
gotta drop

this young Dr. Carter
thing every now and again.

I'm just looking
out for you.

I can look out for myself.

Ooh! Hey, look,

Do you want to,
you want to do the ABC's?


I'm hungry.

I have to go
to the bathroom.

You just went to the bathroom.

That was Sam.
That was me.

Well, why didn't you
go when Sam went?

I didn't have to go then.
I have to go now.

I want a hamburger.

Well, there's turkey sandwiches
in your bag back there.

I'm tired of turkey.

Me, too, I want
a hamburger, too.

You couldn't just let them sing.

This new taquito flavor
is great.

Hey, fiesta corn.

That's a new twist
on Thanksgiving tradition.

Okay, this little
Thanksgiving again dinner

is turning
into an insanity feast.

You don't want
to cook all this stuff.

Don't you think you should
be taking it a little easy?

Why, because
I'm pregnant?

Do you know that
women in China

work up until the day
they go into labor?

They deliver in the field,

and an hour later,
they go back to work.

Hey, spicy garlic
green beans.

Goes with the corn.

One, you're not a
Chinese peasant

working in the fields;

and two, I don't think
Chinese peasant women

have spicy garlic
green beans

and fiesta corn
in their diet.

And three, I don't believe
that myth anyway.

You just can't stand it when
you're not in charge, can you?

What are you talking about?

I'm talking about how you've
got something going on

with Simon that no one else can
handle, so you're still in town.

And while you're in town,
you're trying to handle my life,

when my life is quite perfect,
thank you.

You okay?

Yeah, it's probably
just the pork rinds.

Sit down.

No, I'm fine.

Oh... maybe just for a minute.

All right, I'm going
to get some help.

No, no, really, I... I'm fine.

Why don't you go get in line,

and, um, I'll be there
in a minute.

I can't leave you here.

No, it... you know, it's
probably just the pork rinds.

I need some space anyway,
if you don't mind.

Um, I'll meet you
at the checkout.




Hey, Ruthie.

I thought you went camping.

I changed my mind.

We spent last night out,
and it rained,

and it was cold,
so we came home.

Are Mom and Dad back yet?

Uh, no,
they're driving back today.


Is anything wrong?


Are you having fun?

Yeah, it-it's great.

How is your nephew?
How's... how's Charlie?

He's great.

Carlos and Mary?


Carlos's family?


You sound funny.


I'm here.

Did you want to talk
to anyone else?

I don't think anyone's home.


I'll call back later.

Okay. Bye.


Lucy, Lucy.


Come on, Lucy,
you okay?

I guess I'm not a very
good peasant girl.

I need some help.

Call 911 now.


You're going
to be okay, Lucy.

Everything's going
to be okay.


18 angio in the
right antecubital.

I'll hang a liter of saline
and draw a blood panel.

She'll need a CBC
and an ultrasound.

Why don't we wait
for Dr. Kline?

Who's he?

He's my doctor.



I thought you
were camping.
I thought you
were at school.

I changed my mind.
I changed my mind.

Yeah, so, uh, how is school?

It's great.

Well, your mom's going
to be really excited to see you.

No, she's not.

It's okay, Dad,
you can move closer.

Oh, gross.

No, I'm... I'm
not her husband.

Oh, that's okay.

I have a nine-month-old,

and I'm getting
married next month.

No, no, no, I'm...
I'm not, uh...

Hi, Lucy.

Okay, let's see what mischief

you've gotten
yourself into.

Who are you?

That's her boyfriend.

They're getting married.

Really, Lucy?

How does Kevin
feel about this?

Oh, God.

I'm, uh, Matt,
her, uh...

Matt, the
medical student.

Lucy brags about
you all the time.


Does she have
another brother

Matt who's in
medical school?

All right Matt
the med student,

I'm going to examine
your sister now,

so maybe you
ought to, uh...

BP 100/70.

Pulse is 104.

Good, I'll
need a CBC,

chem one, uh, UA
type and screen

and an antigen

I'll be right outside.

Run 500cc's of saline,

another 250
per hour.

Call Kevin.

I don't have
my cell.

There's a pay phone
out in the hall.



I've got medical stuff to do.

Yes, it's Matt Camden again.

Did anyone get in touch
with Kevin Kinkirk?

Yes, it's important.

His wife's in the hospital.

Glenoak Hospital.

Right, I...

No, I'm his brother-in-law.

Well, how long before you
can reach him?

Okay, just get him the message.


Matt, you can
come back in now.




Hey, hi.

How's Puerto Rico?

You're home for Thanksgiving?


I thought you were working.

I got someone to fill in.



We had Thanksgiving
last weekend.

You missed it.

Yeah, I know, but I mean,

Matt was still
at the house, and so...

Matt's still home?

Yeah, well, he had
already lied to the dean,

so he... he felt like he had
to stay out of town.

No one was supposed to be home
for Thanksgiving.

Ruthie, what's the difference?

You're... you're in Puerto Rico.

I know.

I'm in Puerto Rico.

Is everything okay?

Yeah, everything's great.

Anyone home?

Uh, Martin's here.

Just Martin?

Um, yeah, my... my parents
are on their way back.

They... they're going
to be here tonight.


Um, well,
I was thinking

about going shopping
for maternity clothes.

Soon, you'll be able
to feel her kicking.


Okay, hold on.

This is all happening
way too fast.

But we've talked about this.

Oh, actually,
we-we haven't.

Okay? It's... it just...

it's just sort of happening,
and we're not talking about it.

The first time we're going
to talk about it

is going to be with my parents.

But there's nothing
to talk about.

I mean, what are we
supposed to do?

I don't know.

Maybe we should
just talk to Matt,

okay, together,
just the two of us.

No, no.

I don't even like
that you talked to your brother.

I'm not going to talk to him.

He doesn't even like me.

That's not true.

What... what about
my shrink, okay?

Dr. Gibson.

No, we can do this
without anyone's help.

It'll be okay.

I knew you weren't going
to want to talk

to Matt, okay,
so I made an appointment

at the family
planning center...

just... just to get some advice.


I don't need

any advice.

I need you to step up.

It's what I expect,

and it's what you're going
to do.

I don't

Unless we stop them,

you may go
into preterm labor.

But it's
too early.

I need to perform
an ultrasound

to check the size
and position of the baby.

I'll be right back
with the machine.

Where is

He's on that assignment,

and I couldn't reach
Captain Michaels.

He's in court.

It'll be okay, Lucy.

I need Kevin.

Are you sure
you're allowed to mix

those cold pills
with your regular medication?

Oh, yeah, I'm... I'm...

I'm fine.


Too much turkey.

You should have
had a hamburger.

Or a cheeseburger.

Did you go to the bathroom?

We forgot.

I'll take them.

Oh, thank you.



Hey, maybe I should
have had a hamburger.

Oh, you don't need a hamburger.

You can eat those
turkey sandwiches.

They're made on low-fat bread.
You know, I think

a second turkey in a week
kind of did me in on turkey.

Well, I hope not,
because I'm pretty sure

Lucy's planning
on cooking one tomorrow.

I thought we
were doing nothing tomorrow.

Well, don't count on it.

Well, then, I'm having a burger.

Good position.

Normal movement.

Placenta looks great.

Amniotic fluid
looks fantastic, too.

Is she all right?

She's fine.

We've just
got to get

the contractions stopped.

Dr. Kline, they need you
in OR Two.

I've got to go.

The nurse will start you
on the medication.

I'll check back on you
in half an hour.

But I have

some questions.

Maybe I can
answer your questions.

Where's Kevin?

I called.

I... I left messages

He hasn't called
back yet.

I don't know.

That's the only question
I need you to answer.

She's so tiny.

I don't want to lose her.

I'm supposed to protect her
and keep her safe.

You didn't do
anything wrong.

If that's true, then why
is this happening?

Guy in black's our
man, Ryan Miller.

Main source for
crystal on campus.

The rest?

The guy
in the blue jeans,

our guy.

Don't want to
expose him.

We'll make a buy,
make the arrest.

Our guy stays clear,
keeps his cover.

It's the station.

Later for that.

We don't want
to blow this.

Simon Le Bon?

Hi, that's me.

Okay, Simon, uh, is your
partner meeting you here?

No, no, it's just me.

Okay, well,
why don't you sit down

and one of our counselors will
be with you soon?


Um, pardon me.
Could I...?



You don't look pregnant.

No, no, I'm, I'm not.

I mean my,
my girlfriend, um...

If you get embarrassed
that easily,

it takes all the fun
out of teasing you.

I'm Leah, Leah Morris.

Hi, Simon...

...Le Bon.

Isn't that the name of the lead
singer for Duran Duran?

Yeah, um, I panicked.

So you're here

Sort of, yeah,
I guess.

She meeting you here?


Your girlfriend.

Uh, I don't know.

And I-I asked her to,
but I don't think so.

Scary time
for the two of you.

Lots of big changes?

Yeah, um, I just--

I just wanted some
advice, you know,

from someone who's
not in my family.

That's good.

Say it all aloud first,
think about it.

You're playing it smart.

I think if I was
playing it smart,
I really wouldn't

have to be here in the
first place, you know.

Well, brave then.

I'm terrified.

Look around you.

Most women have to come
here on their own,

yet you're here.

Terrified or not.

I'd say your girlfriend's
pretty lucky to have you.

Maybe your child will be lucky
to have you.


Simon Le Bon?

Are-are you sure

Dr. Kline didn't want to start
with terbutaline?

Is something wrong?

He ordered

Do you mind getting him?

I-I want to ask him

I checked the order.

I'd still like to talk
to him.


Is it

the wrong medicine, Matt?
Tell me.

No, I just want to ask
Dr. Kline a question.

Matt, stop the medicine!

I don't want them to hurt
my baby, Matt...

What's the problem here?

They gave me the wrong medicine.

Matt, tell him.

This is exactly what I ordered,


I was taught that terbutaline
was the first-line treatment.

In this case, I chose magnesium.

Lucy, don't worry,
it's the right medicine.

Are you sure?

Yes, I'm sure.

I graduated medical school
quite some time ago.

This is not my first
time around.

Matt, you're making me crazy!

Could I speak with you
for a second?

No, no, no secrets!

if you want to say something,
say it in front of me.

No, Lucy, I think we'll save
your brother the embarrassment

of a public flogging
and we'll go talk outside.

What were you doing in there?

Looking out for
my sister.


Okay, you know the cliché

about a little knowledge
being a dangerous thing?

But you agreed that terbutaline
was the first-line drug.

And what are the relative

to terbutaline?

Your sister has a mild prolapsed
mitral valve.

It's asymptomatic,

but given my extensive

I thought magnesium would be the
more appropriate choice for her.

I didn't know
about the prolapse.

That's because
you're her brother,

not her doctor.

I'll do my job,

you do yours, okay?

Okay, then.

For 75, it better be good.

Hey, all my stuff comes
with a money-back guarantee.

Just like your finer retail

We're having a party next
week; can you handle it?

Hey, why don't we take
one thing at a time?

That's 75,

cash on delivery.

Nice doing business
with you.

One last piece
of business.

I'm sure you know the drill.

Now, why did you have to go
and do that?

nice tackle, bro.

I remember when
road trips were fun.

That was seven
children ago.

Matt is now older

than we were
when we were married.

We used to make
this trip a lot

when the children
were younger.

Yeah, but the key is,
we were younger.

You gonna be okay tomorrow?

Yeah, I'll be fine.

Counting last night,

it'll be our third Thanksgiving
in a week without my dad,

so it's getting easier.

Well, I-I know Ginger's glad
we came.

Me, too.

I like her a lot better now

that my dad is back with my mom.

Shh, shh,

shh, shh, shh.

It's still fun being on the road
with you.

I hope you're
not upset at me. I...

I just felt like

I had to get this all straight
in my head, you know,

and... and now it
all makes sense.


and I-I could do this.

Do what?

Be a dad.

A really great dad.

And raise a son

or a daughter.

And teach them stuff

and-and-and be there for them.

Are you sure?

You know, I mean,
what about school,

and your job,

you know, your plans?

I'm sure.

And school, and-and the job

and everything,
we-we can figure it out,

you know, together.

I'm ready to do this.

You ready to tell your parents,

my parents?

Because we can wait.

You know, I mean, we're just
getting used to the idea

of getting married
and having a baby ourselves.

We're gonna tell them as adults,

parents to parents.


Tonight, today,

as soon as possible.

Parents to parents.


Any more free
medical advice?




Called again.

Not his fault.

I knew he wouldn't
be reachable today.

I wanted him to take
the assignment

before we got too close
to our due date.

I should have taken better
care of myself,

of us.

You have to stop
blaming yourself.

I tried to do too much.

School, church, wife,
Thanksgiving dinner--

I thought only of myself,

and I should have thought
of the baby first.

Lucy, being pregnant

doesn't mean you have
to put life on hold.

I'm not talking about hold.

I'm talking about changing.

It's not about me anymore.

I'm responsible
for another human being.


I'm gonna be a mom.

It changes everything.

I guess it's time for the Camden
kids to grow up.

I'm working on it.

What's going on with Simon?

Let's not worry about Simon
right now.

I have a confession to make.

I don't really like Georgia.

I just...

Don't trust her?

No, I don't either,

but let's not talk about them
right now.

Do you ever think
about having kids?

I mean, yes.

I mean, with-with med school

and with Sarah and I
working things out,

I'd like to have kids
when the timing's right.


Lucy, you okay?

can't catch my breath, Matt.

We need some
help in here!

It's okay, Lucy.

It's okay.
We need some help!

It's okay,
it's okay.

We need some help.

Bilateral rales.

Another 40 of
Furosemide IV push.

BP 90/60, resps 28.

Pulse ox is 88.

High-flow O2 by mask.

Lorazepam five milligrams.

If she's hypoxic,
shouldn't we intubate her?

Let's let the
meds circulate.

Pressure's dropping,

She's hypotensive.

She needs to be on
a dopamine drip.


Side effect of
all the medicines.

What do we do now?

Breathe... slowly.

She's stopping.

BP coming back up


Pulse ox up to 96.

Color's improving.

- She's pinking up.
- Vitals q15.

Keep her on the monitor;

get that ultrasound
back in here.

Is she okay?

Is the baby okay?

I don't know yet, Matt.

- Doesn't look dislocated.
- May be an AC separation.

You'll have to get
an X-ray at the ER.

Nice work, Kinkirk.

Thank you, sir.

Just got word Lucy's trying
to get in touch with you.

Did she say anything
about hamburgers?

Now, don't panic.

She's at the hospital.

Matt's with her.

She's gonna be okay.

But we need to get you
down there right away.

Hello? Anybody home?


We'll go
check upstairs.

Yeah, well
check upstairs.

Thank you, and then
get ready for bed.

We slept all day
in the car.

We're not sleepy.

Oh, well, your mom
and I are very sleepy.

So, maybe we'll go to bed

and you can stay up all
night if you're very quiet.


Stay up all night?

Oh, don't worry,
they'll never make it.

Well, somebody's been here.

Kevin, if you get this, call me

at the Glenoak Hospital
right away.

I had to bring Lucy
in to be checked.

She's-she's all right,

but I-I need you to call me
as soon as you get this.


I'll call.

I-I want to go to the hospital.

We should call.

Well, I need to be with her.

Uh, stay with the boys.

The number for Glenoak
Hospital Emergency, please.

Simon, Georgia, what
are you doing here?


Georgia and I,
it's a surprise.

It's good to see you.

Can you watch the boys?

I've got to go.

Where? Didn't you
just get home?

Yeah, I have to go
to the hospital.

Something's wrong with Lucy;
your mom just left.

The baby?

We don't know; we'll call you.

No way! I'm going with you.

Yeah, but we're
going with you.

I need you two to
take care of the boys.

Well, Martin's here.

He can watch the boys.
I'll get him.

Simon, look, look,
we don't know

if Lucy would want
everyone there.

Please, you and
Georgia stay here.

I'll feel better
if you're here.

Y-You can come down later.

How's she doing?

have stopped.

The baby?

Hear that?

Perfect baby

I've gotta answer that.

I'll look in on you
in a half hour.

Good job, Matt.

Maybe that medical school
thing will work out.

Nice timing, Dad.

You shouldn't keep an
expectant mom waiting.

Lucy, are you okay?

The baby?

She's fine; we're both fine.

Are you sure?

What happened to you?

Nothing, Luce,
I'm fine.


Is she...

The baby?

They're fine.

Go in and see
for yourself.

Kevin's with her.

Thanks for being here.

It's okay.

I mean, Camden residence.

Oh, it's you.

Yeah, it's just me.

Simon's around.
He's with Georgia.

You want to talk to him?

No, I want to talk
to Mom and Dad.

Did Mom and Dad get home?

Uh, they did.

So, where are they?

They had to go do some stuff.

There aren't any groceries.

They probably just
went to the market.

I'm watching the boys.
Uh, you sound kind of lonely.

Where's everyone there?

They're all watching
Charlie sleep.

I thought I was going
to be helping baby-sit.

I can't even get
my hands on the kid.

And Mary and Carlos
are acting like

it's their honeymoon
or something.

I feel completely out of place.
I should have stayed home.

I knew you didn't sound great
when you called before.

I really miss my family.

I want to be home
for Thanksgiving.

I can't even believe
I'm not there.

It's okay, Ruthie.

It's gonna be okay.

No, it's not.

Listen to me.

I never get to spend
Thanksgiving with my family.

I've had a lot of experience
with this, and I can help you.


First thing tomorrow, I'd go
straight to the kitchen.

Someone there is
cooking and cleaning,

and that someone needs you.

Work is good. It... It'll make
you feel better to help out.

It's Puerto Rico.

It's not even Thanksgiving
here tomorrow.

It's a U.S. territory.

I'm pretty sure
they adopted the holiday.

No kidding?

No kidding.

And Thanksgiving is just
a meal where you feel

grateful for what
you have, anyway.

I am feeling pretty
grateful for my family,

and I'm including you in that.

It's gonna be okay.

I'll make sure everyone
calls you tomorrow-- promise.


I love you, Martin.

Like a brother, I mean.

I love you, too, Ruthie.

Good night.

Good night.

As it turns out, maybe
it isn't the best time

to say anything,
so we'll wait.

But when we do tell them,
everything will be fine.

gonna be okay.

I don't think I'm gonna
want to go to the hospital.

I'm not going to have a baby.

Oh, no, no, I know everything
is really scary right now.

That's all...
No, no.

There is no baby.

There never was.

It was just...

A lie?

Why would you...?

I didn't want to lose you.

You thought lying to me
about getting pregnant

wouldn't make you lose me?


What is wrong with you?

Simon, you know
you and Christina...


We're just friends;
she's my neighbor.

My-my-my dad's
helping her family.

You like her!

So, what?
We're just friends.

Okay, but I didn't want it to,
you know, become more than that.

So you lied!

You lied about
something this important!

I'm sorry, okay?

Georgia, I can't
believe you did that.

I'm sorry.

Okay? I shouldn't have.

I shouldn't have, but I'm sorry.

I think we should go home now.

Thank you.

Yeah, thanks.

Thanks for being
here for us.


We love you.


Lucy's fine
and the baby's fine.

I'm sorry, I should
have called home.

Georgia's not pregnant.

She lied to me.

She was just gonna let me
think that so I'd marry her.

I'm sorry, I know that
you were staying in town

just to be with me when
I told Mom and Dad.

It's okay, I'm glad I was here.

We have a lot to be grateful for
this Thanksgiving.
