He... and he...
[sobbing continues]

[horns honk outside]

So, we've gone quite a bit over,

and we need to wrap up.

But I think you should
call a close friend.

I don't think you should
be alone right now.

You look like you could use a hug.

[sighs] Okay.

Okay.
Do you want to...

keep your same appointment
time for next week?



Actually, would it be possible for me
to come back first thing on Monday?

I'm sorry, I'm all
booked up for Monday.

Friday is still the only day that I
can accommodate a double session.

Okay.

You're doing great work, Natalie.

I'll... see you next week.

- Thank you. [Crying]
- Take care.

- Hi.
- Any trouble breathing?

- No.
- Impaired vision or headaches?

- No.
- Any allergies to medications?

No. Pain level on a scale of one to 10,

one being no pain at all, and 10 being
the worst pain you can imagine?

Uh... ss-seven.

Hmm. All right.

I'll come back and give you
something for the pain.

Oh, no. What...
what's in that bag?

That's just fluids. Oh. No, I'm okay.
I don't want drugs.

Are you sure? Yeah, I'm... No,
I mean, I'm okay. I'm cool.

Okay. Well, if you change your
mind, that's your call button.

Okay. Thank you.

[people chattering]
We don't have enough beds.

I don't know why
we don't have enough beds,

but I can't make the beds...
[chatter continues]

You think I should tell 'em?
I mean, I don't...

Wait. You didn't tell the lady
that was asking the questions

- when we got here?
- I didn't know what to say.

Do you you think you can get it out?

I tried. My hand doesn't go up that far.

- Yeah.
- I mean, listen,

they're gonna get up there, and
they're gonna find that anyway.

I should just tell them, right?

- What's your friend's name?
- Fermuth.

Yes, yes, we admitted him.
He's up in 307.

- These elevators over here?
- Yes.

[speaking Hindi]

Are y'all watching
"Dancing with the Stars" this week?

- No, I'm not. Oh.
- Yes!

It's beginning to be
more of the same, though.

Needs new judges if you ask me.

Who are the judges this time, huh?

Some ones. I don't care
for that backup dancer.

- Oh, who you like?
- The girl from that group

- and the football player.
- Oh, how about the housewife?

The technical judge told her she needed
to do more than trying to be sexy,

which is funny to me,
because she can't dance.

- Oh.
- Hey, Sid.

- What?
- You okay?

[sighs] Yeah.
I... I got a pain.

He's been eating like a pig.

- It's my prostrate.
- It's "prostate."

What?
What'd I eat last night?

Yeah, you had
that scungeel or something.

- Yeah. Would it...
- Where are you going?

- I gotta take a piss.
- Down the hall. You okay?

Could she smile? Would it kill her?
[curtain rustles]

- Oh, but she's working.
- Yeah, she's working.

They're like that.
They don't smile.

They work very hard here.
She works very hard.

- I worked hard.
- Shh! Quiet.

Is someone getting me the water?

- ...pillow.
- My throat is so dry.

Okay, just lay back, feel better.

Have you had a bowel movement today?

♪ [noises stop]

And I know...

daggers have been at your throats.

To the ones who were never
told that they are worthy

of every good and perfect thing

'cause you didn't pray
to the God you grew up with

or fall in love with the boy
you were supposed to,

or in my case, any boy at all.
[laughter]

All of you with your faith that
all of this has been a rehearsal,

some strange experiment in suffering.

Listen.
You are not charity cases.

- No.
- Not victims.

Yeah. Not history's bad-luck accidents.

So, to the trying ones,
the deliberate ones,

the holding-on ones,
just praise.

- Yes.
- Praise your body

in the way you woke up this morning.

Praise the miracle and the mess.

Yes. Yes.
[man laughs]

Praise the language you were born with

and the ones you're learning.

Yeah.

Praise the child you were

and the adult you are still becoming.

- Praise the becoming.
- Amen.

Praise the journey.

Praise the fight.
Praise the wherewithal.

Amen.

Praise the riding of wind

without asking permission.

Yeah.

[camera clicks]

Praise that there is
so much... of you left,

and praise the otherworldly
algorithm that is your heart.

Yeah.

Especially that.

Revolution is the sound...

of your heart...

still beating.

So, praise.

- Amen.
- Amen.
