Grey's Anatomy (2005–…): Season 14, Episode 22 - Fight For Your Mind - full transcript

Alex and Jo go on a road trip to Iowa to find Alex's mom, whom he hasn't heard from in a very long time. Meanwhile, Meredith gives a presentation on her mini-livers project, which attracts a ton of attention, and Jackson works to ...

Before surgery, we ask
patients a series of questions.

"Do you have a job to return to?

Do you have a support system at home?"

We're screening for mental illness.

Anxiety, depression, delusions.

We need to make sure
you're of sound mind.

We need to make sure
you know what to expect.

But if we check patients
for mental illness,

why not surgeons?

Someone should really get on that.

She's in the worst part of the detox.

I can stay stay, help...

No, I'm okay. I got it.
Thank you, though.

Okay. Well, good luck.

All right. Dr. Webber, we have to go.

Vik Roy and his lawyer brother are here.

What do you mean "we"? You're the chief.

And you fired him.

They say how much
it would cost to settle?

No, and unlike you,

we don't have millions
of dollars at our disposal.

And if we can't settle,

we have to make sure we were
100% justified in firing him.

I do recall his having
a disrespectful attitude

toward a patient who tried
to cut off his own hand.

Acted as if it were a joke.

Ooh, go on.

Well, I called Dr. Carina DeLuca

to tell the boy that masturbation

was perfectly healthy...

Stop. I want you to imagine that sentence

with "Your Honor" at the end of it.

- Yeah, never mind.
- Mm.

Avery, do you have anything
helpful on Dr. Roy?

I think I do. He tried to
take advantage of Dr. Kepner

during a particularly
vulnerable time in her...

"When he was an intern and she
was an attending, Your Honor."

You know what?

Forget I... said anything.

He spits up a lot.

I thought it was GERD
or A pyloric stenosis, but...

No, they just barf.

I think it's triggered by
the cleanliness of your shirt.

Oh. The babies.

I love them like this,
Enjoy them like this.

Hey you, um, why don't you go
get yourself checked in, okay?

Sofia got suspended from school.

From second grade?!

What, did she color outside the lines?

No, she stole the field-trip money.

- What?
- Oh, that'll do it.

- Why?
- Why? Uh, 'cause she's acting out.

'Cause she's sad
'cause I'm a terrible mother.

I don't know, but enjoy those babies.

Any minute now, she's gonna realize

I am the love of her life.

Meredith Grey is straight.

Ever heard her talk about Cristina Yang?

Hey. Someone needs to run
this bloodwork up to the lab.

Hey! You know, we're also
shorthanded in the clinic today,

and there is a nasty
hemorrhoid in bed seven

that needs to be lanced and drained.

I've got the bloodwork!

Have fun with your hemorrhoid.

I'd rather lance a hemorrhoid
than be a hemorrhoid.

Great, then you got rectals
in the ICU after that.

You want bed sores in geriatrics, too?

Wish I could say it was nice
to see you back at work, but...

Come on.

I'm gonna show you
the coolest thing ever,

on the tiniest patient ever.

Don't assume the worst, okay?

The worst being my mom is roaming
the street in her nightgown?

Or my mom's dead and
nobody thought to tell me?

Okay. I'm going.

Mom? It's me... Alex!

You there?!

Looking for someone?

Uh, yes. Uh...

The lady that lives here. Helen Karev?

What happened?! Is it bad?!

Oh, my God... Is it bad?!

Who's the guy?! Did he...
Does he know where she is?!


She's at work.

Synced & corrected by -robtor-

I'll talk about that in the presentation,

but Dr. Wilson and I are very encouraged

by the work that we've done so far.

Was any of this work funded
by Harper Avery money?

The Catherine Fox Foundation. No.

Do you feel renaming
the foundation is enough?

But we haven't simply renamed it.

It's a whole new foundation
with a new direction,

which will be exemplified
here at Grey Sloan.

What do you have to say
to the dozens of women

denied the opportunity to do
such research by Harper Avery?

Dr. Grey? I said, what do you...

I couldn't be prouder

of the work that my team
and I accomplished

in the face of what seemed
to be insurmountable odds.

If you'll excuse me, I have work to do.

Thanks so much. Thank you. Excuse me.

Dr. Myers to Oncology.

Dr. Myers to Oncology.

- What's her problem?
- Tomophobia.

Fear of medical procedures.

She equates surgery with death.

I've heard of patients who have died

because they refuse treatment.

Well, it's because of her dad.
He had an appendectomy.

And they told him it was nothing,

and then there were complications.

He went in for surgery, and then she...

never saw him again.

She was 5.

What's DeLuca doing here?

Oh, I brought him to cheer him up.

And so far, it's depressing me more.

Well, the exciting part
is the surgery, not the patient.

You got a golden ticket.

This is the spina bifida surgery
on an exteriorized uterus.

Besides the Texas Children's
Fetal Center,

we are one of the only places to do this.

Okay, people. Warm faces,
library voices, and lay terms.

- Yay.
- Yay.

Hi. Teresa and Ed. How we doin'?

Gettin' there.

But could you go over
the whole thing one last time?

- I think it helps.
- It does.

It does. It helps me to hear it out loud.

Of course. Um, DeLuca?

Teresa Benson, 24 weeks pregnant,

baby diagnosed with spina bifida
with meningocele.

Lay terms.

Right. Uh...

Look, b-because your...
your baby has spina bifida,

the tissue around her spinal
cord hasn't fully closed.

And this can cause problems after birth

like, uh, paralysis,

bowel and bladder problems,
fluid on the brain...

But I will nip it in the bud.

I'm gonna make a really small incision,

I'm gonna pull out your uterus

and use very tiny instruments
to repair the spinal defect,

while she stays very safely inside.

I'll give her a little medication

to keep her perfectly still,

and I will be there, monitoring
her heart the whole time.

- Great.
- Okay.

Okay. See? It's kind of a miracle.


You're gonna be under general anesthesia.

I'm gonna make a little tiny incision...

No! No, no! No. God. Sorry.

I... I can't. I'm sorry. No, no. I ca...

- I'm sorry. I can't.
- All right.

Teresa, the chances of
something happening to you

- are so, so s...
- Just knock me out.

Just sneak up from behind me
when I'm leaving and sedate me.

I can't, because it's against the law.

But I have a sedative, okay?
It'll be very, very quick.

No! No, no, no, no, no!
Please take me home!

- Please take me home!
- Okay, okay, okay. All right.

Listen. We can wait all day.

We'll just... We'll give you some time.

And I can, uh, go check
some other patients.

It's gonna be okay.

I'll give her therapist a call.

I'll with you in one... just in one s...



Your neighbor said you
got your old job back,

but I didn't think that seemed possible.


My God.

I've missed you so much!

- Coffee. Black.
- You got it.

- Not smart.
- Excuse me?

The coffee's terrible.

It requires copious amounts
of, uh, cream and sugar.

Well, if it's good coffee you're after,

there's a great cart at the
hospital across the street.

No, I like the light in here.

And the smell of stale beer.

It does make a good hideout.

You know what? You're right. Can
you pass me the cream, please?


Are you here for the
- Meredith Grey presentation?

Actually I...

- am.
- Me too.

After much soul searching
on the part of my client...


...he has arrived at a request
we think is more than generous.

He is willing to return
to work immediately

with pay for the weeks he has missed,

free medical expenses for the accident,


a formal apology...

from the chief.

That sounds more than reasonable.

We'll take that under advisement.
Thank you for your time.

The nightmares will stop. I promise.

A day into my last detox,
I was afraid I was gonna die.

The next day, I was afraid I wasn't.

You just got to keep telling
yourself it is not forever.

Your life must be really pathetic

for you to just have all this time

to sit here watching me puke.

Don't ignore me.

I'm not ignoring you.

I'm ignoring the demon.

What demon?

Your last high.

It is like a demon,

and it is dying
a painful death right now.

And it knows it's dying,

so it's trying to push me away
so that it can live.

But I am the exorcist. I'm protected.

So the demon can say
whatever it wants. I'm good.


None of the doctors are really sure.

Just sometimes, with age,
schizophrenia burns itself out.

But that doesn't mean you're cured.

No, no.

But it's...

It's more like the
volume's been turned down.

Medications have a better effect.

And, uh, I just have to be
really vigilant with my routine.


Yeah. I-I, uh...

I keep my days the same.

I-I make my tea at the same time,

I take my breaks at the same time.

It just helps keep reality more tangible.

Oh. Thank you, Joyce.

Thanks, Helen.

So you're fine?

You're just... You're fine now?

You didn't tell me?

You just... You just
stopped cashing the checks.

Well, you're so busy.
Uh, you deserve your space.

- I didn't... I didn't wa...
- My space?!

You're my mom.

I came here because
I was worried about you.

Why didn't you tell me
you were doing better?

- Why didn't you tell me that?
- I had so much to manage.

Manage? I'm not something
you manage. I am your son.

I think you need to go.

- What?
- Look, I realize you were worried.

And I'm sorry I caused that. But right...

But right now I have to
take care of myself.

I'm... I'm...

I'm getting really upset,

and, uh... and in moments like this,

I need... I need to keep my focus,

and I'm at work, so I need to do that.


What happened?

My presence is upsetting her.
She asked me to go.

- What? What'd you do?
- I didn't do anything!

I mean... She's my mom.

I came all the way out here.
I thought she was dead.

Okay, let's... let's get out of here.

- And go where?
- Just... somewhere else.

How much money was it?

Um, 30 times $40,
so not exactly grand theft

but enough to make me feel like

I've fundamentally failed as a parent.

No. Every kid steals
something at some point.

I stole a lipstick from the drug store.

Not quite $1,200, but...

So, what did your dad do
when he found out?

He never knew. I was an excellent thief.

Teresa. Teresa, wait!

Hey. Whoa! What's... What's going on?

She's checking out.
She consented to sedation,

but when we tried to get the IV in...

I'm sorry. I-I will come back.

I'll... I'll try to come back.

C-Can you please tell her?

Teresa, if you don't have

this procedure today,
then your baby could be...

I know! She can be paralyzed!

Please don't say that anymore!

Is that everything?

Can we go? Ed? Please.

Okay. All right.


All the boy wants is an apology.

Do you know how much worse this could be?

You know, I am a big believer
in the power of words

and an even bigger believer

in the power of a good apology.

But I will not sully my belief
in those two things

by putting fake words
into some forced apology

to a person who is in the wrong!

Roy made a mistake, a grave one.

But it's... it's possible
I overcorrected in firing him.

You did no such thing!

If he had operated under the con...

But he didn't.

But you know who has
operated in this hospital

knowingly under the influence?


You gonna fire me, too?

Now, that's just manipulative.

This has nothing to do with you.

Thought you had a big surgery today.

Oh, it was canceled.

Cold feet.

Are you okay?

Sofia stole the money

so that she could buy
a plane ticket to New York.

And she didn't want to tell me

because she...

'cause she didn't want
to hurt my feelings.

She said that?


I read it in her diary.
I picked the stupid lock.

Which... is also another
gold-star parenting moment.

What are you gonna do?

I don't know.

Because I can't keep her
against her will, can I?

You're her mom.

You can do whatever
you think is best for her.


Where are you going?

So, are you in Seattle much?

All the time.

I like it. It's so gloomy
and, you know, rainy.

You like the gloom?

Well, I grew up in Los Angeles,

so I'm way over my sunshine
quota. I like the rain.

Well, I didn't know
anybody grew up in Los Angeles.

I thought everyone just moved there

to chase their dreams
and then have them crushed.

No, some people, uh, grow their
crushed dreams right there.

- No offense.
- No, none taken.

It's weird... Everyone that
likes it already lives there.

Everyone else seems to hate it.

Something stronger?

Oh, not for me. I have a thing.
Thanks, Mark.

I'll make a fresh pot, Dr. Grey.

"Dr. Grey."

You're kidding me.

You could've said that.

- I could've.
- Tha...

- I knew...
- Is everything okay?

It's just... No. Of course... I mean...

Yeah, you're... you're Dr. Grey,

and of course you're terrific.

And that just makes it really
hard to keep hating you.

Why would you hate me?

Because you wasted a year of my life.

You're at my house. Wh... Is that normal?

Is that... Is that a thing you do?

No. It's not normal. It's really weird.

I just... I needed to ask you a question.

If it weren't you having surgery,

if it was your daughter's
life at stake...

and she was... and she was standing
right there, and she needed surgery...

what would you do?

Would you let her have it?

Can I come in?

This is dumb.

So let it be dumb.

She ruined my whole damn life.

I hid Aaron and Amber from her.

Failed Geometry 'cause that was the year

that she decided to get up
and walk out of the house

every morning...

no shoes, no money, nothing.

I'd spend all of first period
looking for her,

and there's she'd be,
just laughing her ass off,

or yelling at nobody
on the street corner.

No friends, no girlfriends,

'cause, I mean, who the hell
wants to hang out

with the freak with the psycho for a mom?

But it's good that she's better, right?

Yeah, yeah. Sure.
It's... It's freaking great.

She's nice. She's... She's calm.

She's... She's working, and she's eating,

and she's looking perfectly normal

in her perfectly normal life!

Okay, if she's good,
why are you so angry?

Why the hell now?!

Now?! Why now?!

Now, when... when nobody needs her,

when nobody wants her around,

w-when Aaron and Amber
don't need a mother

instead of me raising them?!

Why, when all the
freaking damage is done?!

Now she's good? She's fine?! She's okay?!

And I can't even
say a damn thing about it.

Because I have been cleaning up
her mess my whole damn life.

But never once did I cause it.
And I am not about to start now!

You want to take a break?

- No. Load it, please.
- Okay.

I just know that if you put me
under, I won't come back.

That I'll die.
That I'll never see my baby.

That I'll never see Ed.
I'll never come back.

I used to roller-skate.


M-My family used to move around
a lot, which was really scary.

But whenever we'd get somewhere new,

first thing, my dad would...

my dad would take me skating.

And so no matter
where I was in the world,

that would stay the same.

And I... I felt safe.

I did it in college, um,
and I did it in med school,

and then I did it when
I first got my job here.

Um, I worked with kids,

and so it kind of
made them feel safe, too.

And then I was in an accident.

And they told me that...

that I may lose my leg.

And all I could think about was...

I'll never be able to skate again.

And a lot of my life would change,

but that seemingly tiny thing
felt like...

I felt like my whole life
was being taken away from me.

And that all the stuff
that my dad had given me,

you know, all the magic
and all the safety,

was just gonna be gone.

And so I made my wife promise me

that she would not let them take my leg.

No... matter... what.

But then it came down
to my life or my leg.

And they needed her consent to amputate.

I am so lucky...

that she and my doctors could
clearly see what I couldn't.

And you know what?

I skated again.

And my worst fear was wrong.

And the only thing I really lost
was my leg.

And I would've died if I'd have kept it.

And I have so much joy
in my life right now.

More than I could possibly imagine.

I have a... I have a healthy daughter,

and I have work that I love,
and I'm okay.

I'm... I'm great.

And I want that for you.

I want that for your life, too.

I just... I...

I'll die.


Your dad died.

And it was unfair. It was terrible.

And it still scares you.

But you're a mom now. You're her mom.

And you need to do what's best for her.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Everything okay?

A surgery I was excited about
got canceled.

What about you?

Oh, I spent all day cutting checks.

Paid $38 million before lunch.

I took a break to read
a hard-hitting op-ed titled

How Much Did Grandbaby Avery Know?"

- Yeah.
- Good stuff.

Well, it's easy, and it's lazy

to sit outside a complicated situation

and attack the people involved.

But you know what's sexy?

What's that?

The way you just keep doing you.

- Is that right?
- Mm-hmm.

You want to go find someplace private?


- Take your mind off money?
- Mm-hmm.

You know, if we keep doing this
every time I write big checks,

then we're not gonna get much work done.

I'm okay with that.

Hey, Betty?

Sounds like it's quieted down in there.

I know you hate my guts right now.

But will you let me change
your fluids? It'll really help.

Come on, Betty. We'll play a game.

I will just sit there, and you
can mean-girl me until I cry.

Betty? You okay?

Betty?! Betty!

So, I went to my team, and I said,

"I have good news and bad news.

The good news...

the abdominal-wall transplant
definitely works.

Bad news?

We can all go home. Meredith
Grey just pulled it off."

I fail to see how that warrants hatred.

I had no idea.

And I'm sure your work

will help perfect the process
in the future.

You ever hear of Pete Conrad?

No. Is he a surgeon?

- Astronaut.
- Oh.

First guy to walk on the Moon
during the second Moon landing.

And one of only 12 people
in history to do that.

And no one cares.
Because he wasn't first.

You looking for an apology?

You're barking up the wrong tree,

because I won fair and square.

That's just another reason I hate you.

Get in line.

Beat someone else to the punch?


Someone tried to steal mini-livers.

A friend. Or so I thought.

Literally to my face said
she was going to steal it

and beat me to market.

Sounds like there's a story there.

There is.

So... got any... Got any pets?

That doesn't make sense. She
texted me she was coming here.

So if she's not here, she's not okay!

I'm sorry, but we haven't seen Teresa

since you left this morning.

She's here.

Babe, what happened, what are you...

We had... It's okay.

We had a little trouble
getting out of the car.

And then we had a little trouble
getting in the door.

But we're here. So those are
some little victories.

- Mm-hmm.
- We're gonna keep going, okay?

We're just gonna keep going.

Sorry me and my family is so depressing.

Shut up.

She had one really good year
when I was a kid.

She worked at that library,

and I would hang out with her there.

We'd play hide-and-seek in the stacks.

My whole life, all I ever wanted
was a mom who wasn't sick.

I didn't care about toys or sports

or any of that crap.

I just wanted a mom who was okay.

And she is.

She finally is.

And she doesn't want me there.

You may never hear what you
want to hear from your mom.

You may never get an acknowledgment.

You may never get an apology.

But you have a shot at having a mom.

And that... Alex, that's...

That's something that's real.

Okay, it's just sleep. It's not dying.

You're gonna go to sleep,
and then you're gonna wake up.

And you'll be okay.

You promise?

I promise.

Easy for you to say.

If you're wrong, you're off
the hook, 'cause I'll be dead.

I promise.

Don't be nervous, Dr. Schmitt.

I'll be talking with
all of your colleagues.

And for the moment,

these conversations are off the record.

- Okay.
- Okay?

So, how would you describe
your experience

working with Dr. Vikram Roy?

Especially any mistakes

or... gross incompetence

you may have witnessed.

If you're asking

if I think you made the
wrong decision firing him,

I don't.

It was the right call.

If the Chief of Surgery
can admit to being high,

so should an intern.

And I watched you.

I watched you stare into the abyss

of a patient you'd opened up,

higher than a kite,
for what felt like an eternity.

But you made the right call.

That is leadership, on drugs or not.

"Your Honor."

Hey. Got your page. What's up?


Uh, well, this was what I was
able to set aside for Harriet.

Everything I have might be up for grabs,

but they can't touch this.

Thank you.

Yeah, she's gonna be okay.

Everything else is fair game? Really?

Well, the foundation has to
keep the hospitals afloat,

so I have decided to pay all
the personal settlements myself.

People must really appreciate that.

It's mixed.

You know, a lot of folks want
jobs, others want lost wages.

Of course, there's
a few lawyers out for blood.

But, I mean, it's really hard
to quantify loss like this.

This means a lot.

And it will to her one day, too.

So, you know, there's this

- story in the Bible.
- Oh, yeah?

Yeah, hear me out. Hear me out.
You're gonna like this one.

About this rich young ruler
who wants to follow Jesus.

And Jesus tells him to
sell all of his belongings

and give the money to the poor.

So for what it's worth,
you are on a really good path.

Your buddy Jesus interested
in buying a yacht?

So my mother had a choice to make...

follow the medicine, or her friend.

- Tough choice.
- It isn't, though.

You follow your friend. Period.

And my mother didn't.

And Marie got the short end of the stick.

So in her mind, it's okay
to stab me in the back.

But it's totally not.

It's totally not.
And I can't even look at her.

But you still feel for her.

Which pisses me off even more.

Because I won fair and square.
And screw her.

But something terrible happened to her.

But that doesn't justify what she did.

I saw your mom speak once,
on the Grey Method, ages ago.

Most inspiring presentation of my career.

It made me switch
from plastics to general.


See? That's the thing.

I mean, she was hell to live with,

but she really did inspire
so many people...

and inspired a whole generation
of female surgeons.

That's... That's the dream.

That's the dream.

That's why we do what we do, right?

I mean, everybody wants
their place in history.

Nobody wants to be the astronaut
that no one remembers.

- Are you trying to rub it in?
- Sorry. No, no, no.

But that's what she took from Cerone.

She stole the dream.

And that's why Cerone feels

that she deserves that place in history.

Because she does.

Alex, please. This is for the best.

Look. I don't want
to mess with your routine.

I, uh... I just needed
to say a couple things.

I want a library card.

- What?
- I mean, it's...

You have to be here for your
job. That's part of it, right?

I'm so happy for you. And proud.

And, uh, seeing you here
doing so well, it...

it was a lot.

And I got mad. And...

And I know it was a lot for you, too.

So much more.

And I know...

I know that I haven't stayed in touch.

But I always thought about you.

And I'm...

I'm so happy.

I'm really happy for you.


Uh, I'm gonna go.

You want to do the stamp?

- Huh?
- The due-date stamp.

I always change it at the end
of the night for tomorrow.

And when you were a little boy,

you used to love to do that for me.

It's silly. Never mind.

No, no. No, no, no.

That'd be cool.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

These things are archaic now.

Online, in-store or in print!

Thank you all for coming.

Before I get started, I have
a statement I'd like to make.

My mother, Ellis Grey,

did not come up with
the Grey Method on her own.

She did it with the help of
and alongside Dr. Marie Cerone.

Due to the reprehensible
behavior of Harper Avery,

Marie Cerone was blacklisted.

And my mother made
the regrettable decision

to publish the work as her own.

I'd like to think that was a result

of the time or the workplace culture,

but that I can't know.

What I can do...

is correct that error.

So from this day forward,

I would like the method
known as the Grey Method

to be known as the Grey-Cerone Method.

And now on to business...

The Formation of New Liver Tissue

with Intraperitoneal
Hepatocyte Injection.

Dr. Wilson and I
are faced with a problem...

And she's okay? My baby's okay?

Oh, yeah. Yeah. I got a good look at her.

She's better than fine. She's
got two super-strong legs.

And a-a great head of hair.

And a closed spine. We like that, too.

I can't believe I put you all
through that.

I was so scared... for nothing.

Hey. Would you stop it?
You saved our little girl, babe.

You're my hero.

He's right. You did.

You did it.

You did everything
that you could for her.

I'm a mom.

You are a mom.

Dr. Roy, on behalf of
Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital,

I would like to tell you that I am s...



Um, I think what Chief Bailey
is trying to say

is that she would like...

I would like to tell you...

that you are lucky.

Lucky to learn from good doctors
who have given everything

in the face of obstacles
you cannot begin to imagine.

People that fought and bled
to pave a way.

Doctors like me.

And I have made mistakes,

but firing you was not one of them.

You got what you deserve.

That said...

I am willing to have you back

for a one-year probationary period,

during which time
I will watch you like a hawk.

I've spent the better part of a year

researching the best way
to get up in someone's butt,

so expect to find me up yours.

And if... if you don't screw it up,

I will shape you into an amazing surgeon.

I accept your apology.

Fixing your mental
health isn't like surgery.

Write that up.

We can't just run the bloodwork
and check the vitals.

A doctor got her high for the first time.

It wasn't a dealer.

It wasn't some random pusher
from the street.

It was a surgeon. Like me.

And I took an oath to do no harm.

And I just feel like there's this
epidemic going on out there.

There are these kids...

They're good kids with ruined
lives and ruined families.

And it's all because

somebody like me
who didn't know any better...

somebody like me who doesn't
understand addiction...

wrote a prescription
in an attempt to help.

And the hilarious part is

I'm so angry about it all
that I am craving drugs!

With mental health, progress
is way harder to measure.

I just hope she comes back.

And if something's wrong,
we have to take action.

You know you're the first girl
I've introduced to my mom in 20 years?

Seriously? I'm really, really nervous.

Why would you say that?

Oh, come on. She's gonna love you.

Oh. Hey. Uh, Mom, this is my fiancée, Jo.

Ohh. Lovely to meet you.

You too, Ms. Karev.

Uh, we're getting married soon,

and we would love for you
to come to the wedding.

Wow. Nothing would make me happier.

But, uh, travel's tough for me
to manage with my routine.

We totally get it.

There's a lot of uncertainty.

There's a lot of fear.

And what might be easy for one person...

for someone else might take

inner strength you can't even imagine.

That's my ride.

Right on time.

Yeah. We got a plane to catch.

My sweetest boy.

My truest love.

But we have to try.

Mer Mer.

Thank you so much.

Can we talk?

Marie, I think I've said
all there is to say.

We have to stand up to our demons.

We have to face reality whenever possible

and ask for help when we can't.

I know that you don't agree with me.

I know... I know that
you think that I coddle her,

but I'm her mother.

And I have to do what's best
for her if I can,

and in this case, I can.

Okay, then, why defend yourself to me

if you don't even care what I think?

I just wish that what's best for her

wasn't what's worst for me.

Callie, hey.

Um, so, I was... I was thinking.

Um, and I think... I think that...

I think that Sofia should move
back to New York with you.

And when we do that, healing is possible.

Mm-hmm. Yeah.

And I think I need to move back with her.
