(man)
NATE. NATE, COME ON. IT’S TIME TO GO. (woman)
NATE? CAN’T BE LATE,
CAN WE? [bird squawking] [telephone ringing] [pigeon coos] WHAT’S THIS? MY GRANDFATHER’S COMPASS. I’VE NEVER SEEN IT LOOK SO– YOU KNOW, THIS HAS BEEN
IN MY FAMILY– FAMILY FOREVER. I KNOW. (woman)
NATE? (man)
SINCE WHEN DOES HE SCRUB IN? HE’S GOING TO CRACK
IF HE KEEPS PUSHING HIMSELF
LIKE THIS. EVAN’S PRETTY SOLID;
HE’LL GET THROUGH THIS. (man)
YOU EVER LOSE SOMEONE
THAT CLOSE? I DON’T THINK
YOU CAN EVER GET PAST IT. (man)
HEY, PAL. HEY, MARTY. WHEN YOU TAKING OFF
FOR THE COAST? UH, NOT SURE. I HAVE SOME TOP-SECRET INFO
THAT MAY CHEER YOU UP. OH, YEAH? CONNELLY’S RETIRING. REALLY? I JUST HEARD. HE’S ANNOUNCING
IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. MAKE ME THE YOUNGEST HEAD
OF PEDIATRICS IN THE COUNTRY. UNLESS THEY GO
WITH MACKENZIE. NO, NO, THIS IS MINE. DIDN’T HEAR IT FROM ME. OF COURSE NOT. THANKS, MARTIN. (man)
VERY IMPRESSIVE, DR. GIBBS. YOU’VE PUBLISHED
MORE THAN I HAVE. YOU HAVE GOOD RAPPORT
WITH YOUR PATIENTS. THANK YOU, SIR. AND PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE
FOR SOMEONE SO YOUNG. YOU’RE MORE THAN QUALIFIED TO HEAD
THE PEDIATRICS UNIT. THANK YOU. HOW ARE THINGS AT HOME, EVAN? FINE, SIR. WELL… LOSING BETH HAS BEEN– BEEN HARD ON NATE AND I,
BUT– BUT WE’RE ADJUSTING WELL,
AND WE’RE FINE. WE’RE WELL ON THE ROAD
TO RECOVERY. BEING A DOCTOR IS MORE THAN TREATING AILMENTS AND PUBLISHING PAPERS, EVAN. AT ITS CORE,
IT’S ABOUT HEALING– HEALING THE BODY, HEALING THE MIND,
AND AFFECTING THE PEOPLE THAT COME TO US
WITH THEIR TRUST. YOU ARE THE RIGHT PERSON
FOR THIS POSITION, PROBABLY MY TOP CHOICE. I JUST DON’T THINK YOUR HEAD
IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AND DR. MACKENZIE
HAS EXPRESSED INTEREST. HE IS EQUALLY QUALIFIED, ALTHOUGH I THINK I KNOW A WAY
YOU CAN LOCK THIS UP. REALLY? IF YOU’RE WILLING TO– WHATEVER I NEED TO DO, I’LL– ANY PLANS FOR THIS SUMMER? NO. YOU SURE? NOT THIS SUMMER. GOOD, THEN. [man talking on television] CAN YOU TURN THE TV DOWN
AND TAKE OFF YOUR MASK FOR A SECOND? NOW, I KNOW THIS MIGHT BE
A LITTLE DISAPPOINTING FOR YOU, BUT YOU’RE JUST GOING
TO HAVE TO TRUST THAT I KNOW WHAT’S BEST
FOR US RIGHT NOW. WE’RE GOING TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE
FOR OUR SUMMER VACATION THIS YEAR. BUT WE ALWAYS GO TO THE COAST. I KNOW, AND THAT’S WHY WE’RE GOING TO TRY
SOMEPLACE NEW THIS YEAR. A LITTLE PLACE. IT’S UP IN THE MOUNTAINS. IT’S NORTH CAROLINA. IT’S APPARENTLY
BEAUTIFUL. NORTH CAROLINA? DUNN’S ROCK, TO BE EXACT. WHY? WELL, THERE’S THIS LITTLE TOWN
THAT NEEDS MY HELP, AND IF I HELP THEM,
WHEN I GET BACK, THEN I GET THE JOB THAT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED. YOU’RE GOING TO BE WORKING? NO, NOT ALL THE TIME. NO, NOT AS MUCH AS I DO HERE. IT’S A VACATION. I KNOW, NATE. YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK ON VACATIONS. BUT THIS IS THE BEST THING
FOR BOTH OF US, IN THE LONG RUN, AND– MOMMY NEVER WOULD HAVE
LET THIS HAPPEN. COME ON, NATE. [crickets chirping] [various animal noises] [creaking noise] I’M JUST RIGHT ACROSS THE HALL
IF YOU NEED ANYTHING. GOOD NIGHT, NATE. GOOD NIGHT. [bird warbling] [dog barking in the distance] [horse whinnies] [Evan sighs] I GOTTA GO MEET MY NEW NURSE
AND THE MAYOR. THERE’S SOME STUFF
FOR SANDWICHES IN THE FRIDGE
FOR LUNCH. I’M GOING TO SEE
IF THE MAYOR KNOWS ANYONE WHO CAN STOP BY
AND CHECK IN ON YOU. [sighs] AND I’LL HIT THE MARKET AND PICK UP SOME FOOD
FOR DINNER LATER. OKAY, SEE YOU LATER. crack! PERFECT. [chittering] [knocking at door] (woman)
HELLO? (Evan)
HELLO! YOU MUST BE
DR. GIBBS. YOU WERE TOLD THE MAYOR IS COMING
THIS MORNING, RIGHT? I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
THIS COFFEE MACHINE, WHICH I’M SURE IS ABOUT
30 YEARS OLD, AND I CAN’T EVEN FIND
THE LIGHT SWITCH. OH, GOOD. THANK YOU. I’M NOT SURE HOW YOU’RE USED
TO DOING THINGS AROUND HERE, BUT WHILE I’M DOCTOR,
BEING LATE IS UNACCEPTABLE. WE ARE GOING TO BE ON TIME
IN THIS OFFICE. CAN YOU SMELL THAT? THERE’S SOME KIND
OF AN ANIMAL IN HERE. [sighs] WE’RE LUCKY THE MAYOR’S LATE. UM, I’M NOT YOUR– AND DRESSING LIKE THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE EITHER. THIS IS
A PROFESSIONAL OFFICE, AND WE WILL ACT LIKE IT. WE’RE NOT A HAY BARN. A HAY BARN? ALSO, I KEEP
A VERY CLOSE INVENTORY OF ALL THE MEDICATIONS
ON THE PREMISES. I’M SURE IT WON’T BE
A PROBLEM, BUT I’M JUST
LETTING YOU KNOW THAT I KEEP TRACK
OF EVERY PILL. I’M NOT YOUR NURSE. YOU’RE NOT? NOPE. MAGGIE’S YOUR NURSE.
SHE’LL BE HERE TOMORROW. SHE’S TAKING CARE OF HER MAMA THIS MORNING. AND WHO ARE YOU? I’M TERRY HUDSON. TERRY HUDSON, THE– THE MAYOR. RIGHT, YOUR BOSS. MAYOR TERRY HUDSON. THE ONE WRITING
YOUR RECOMMENDATION. SO YOU’RE–YOU’RE NOT A MAN. COFFEE? I’M NOT SURE HOW YOU DO THINGS WAY UP THERE IN CHICAGO,
DR. GIBBS, BUT DOWN HERE IN DUNN’S ROCK, IF YOU ACT SUPERIOR
AND CONDESCENDING, FOLKS TEND NOT TO COME AROUND. AND MOST FOLKS
DON’T LIKE DOCTORS TO BEGIN WITH, DON’T TRUST THEM. SOME KIDS HERE HAVEN’T SEEN
A DOCTOR IN TEN YEARS FOR SOME REASON OR ANOTHER,
AND I AM TRYING TO CHANGE THAT, SO IT DOES NOT HELP MATTERS IF THE ONES THAT DO
COME IN HERE WIND UP GETTING SCOLDED
BY THE BIG-CITY DOCTOR WITH A FANCY CAR. NOW, THAT SMELL
YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT, THAT’S RACCOON…POOP. I WILL HAVE SOMEBODY
TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU UNLESS YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ABLE
TO TAKE CARE OF IT YOURSELF. NO. GOOD. YOU HUNGRY? UH– PERFECT. I’M TAKING YOU TO BREAKFAST. OH, AND, BY THE WAY, THESE ARE MY GOOD JEANS. [random piano notes] [gasps] [switch clicking on and off] ARE YOU KIDDING ME? NO TV? [door squeaks] [deep rumbling noise] [creaking noise] HEY, THERE, SUSIE. SO WHEN’D YOU GET IN? LAST NIGHT. MY SON AND I
FLEW IN FROM– ROGER, HEY,
TOWN MEETING’S COMING UP. BE SURE
AND BRING YOUR BROTHER. ROGER HERE OWNS
THE ONLY HARDWARE STORE IN TOWN. HE’S A GOOD MAN TO KNOW. SO YOU HAVE A SON. HOW OLD? HE JUST
TURNED TEN. OH! HE’S A LITTLE MIFFED– AW. HEY, THERE, LUCY. MORNING,
TERRY. EVERYTHING OKAY? YEAH, EVERYTHING’S FINE. THANKS. WELL,
THAT’S INTERESTING. ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING
TO ANYTHING– HEY, THERE,
JULIE. (Julie)
DID YOU READ
THE NEWSLETTER? I ABSOLUTELY DID.
IT WAS WONDERFUL. THANK YOU SO MUCH. JULIE, THIS IS DR. GIBBS. HE’S DOWN FROM CHICAGO. HE’S GOING TO RUN
THE CLINIC THIS SUMMER. JUST FOR THE SUMMER, HUH? (Terry)
HE’S GOT A TEN-YEAR-OLD SON. RIGHT?
WHAT’S HIS NAME? NATE. WELL, WELCOME TO DUNN’S ROCK. I’LL HAVE TO BRING PIE BY
OR SOMETHIN’. OKAY. WELL, I’LL LET YOU TWO CHAT. SEE YOU AT THE MEETIN’. SO– ARE YOU ALWAYS THIS SOCIAL? I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN. HOW DO YOU ACCOMPLISH
ANYTHING AROUND HERE WHEN YOU’RE CONSTANTLY
BEING DISTRACTED? THIS IS HOW
I GET THINGS DONE. (Susie)
COFFEE? HEY, SUSIE.
THANK YOU. SO WHAT DO YOU THINK
OF THE CLINIC? WELL, BESIDES A GOOD CLEANING
AND SOME SERIOUS HANDIWORK, I’M GOING TO NEED
SOME BASIC SUPPLIES: MEDS, NEW DOOR LOCKS. I NEED SOME BASIC EQUIPMENT: A DOPPLER, A DEFIBRILLATOR. I DON’T REMEMBER SEEING A SPHYGMOMANOMETER. I’M A SCIENTIST. I CAN’T BE EXPECTED
TO PERFORM WITHOUT
THE APPROPRIATE TOOLS. YOU’RE LIKELY GOING
TO HAVE TO IMPROVISE A LITTLE BIT,
DR. GIBBS, THE SPHYGNO-WHATEVER-METER
AND MOST OF THE REST OF IT. YOU CAN CALL IT
A BP CUFF. IT JUST TAKES
BLOOD PRESSURE. WELL, THAT’S VERY NICE, BUT THIS TOWN HAS A CAP
ON MEDICAL SPENDING, AND WE’VE ALREADY
REACHED IT. [laughs] THERE’S NO BUDGET
FOR THE CLINIC? AROUND HERE, THERE’S A LOT OF MAKING DO
WITH WHAT YOU GOT. THERE’S NOTHING
IN THERE, MAYOR. IF THIS IS GOING
TO WORK, DR. GIBBS, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE
TO WORK WITH US. ALL THESE PEOPLE NEED IS PROPER CARE
AND GUIDANCE. I’M NOT A CAMP COUNSELOR. I’VE BEEN PRACTICING MEDICINE
FOR NINE YEARS AT THE TOP HOSPITALS
IN THE STATE. YES, I KNOW
YOU’RE VERY QUALIFIED. I TREAT PATIENTS, MAYOR. THEY COME TO ME SICK AND BROKEN,
AND I HEAL THEM, OR I FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN. TO DO THIS, I REQUIRE
THE TOOLS OF MY TRADE, LIKE A PLUMBER OR A CARPENTER. IT’S BLACK AND WHITE. THAT IS SOME POMPOUS,
BUREAUCRATIC, CONVEYOR BELT HEALTH CARE CRAP
THAT I CAN’T STAND. THERE IS NOTHING BLACK AND WHITE
ABOUT THIS TOWN, DR. GIBBS. NOW, ALL I AM
ASKING YOU TO DO IS TO SIT ACROSS A DESK
OR STAND IN A ROOM AND PRETEND THAT THE PERSON
ACROSS FROM YOU, WHO IS SICK AND AFRAID,
WHO NEEDS YOUR HELP AND DOESN’T KNOW HOW
TO ASK FOR IT, ACTUALLY MEANS SOMETHING. OKAY. REALLY? YEAH. UNDER THESE CONDITIONS,
I’M NOT SURE WHAT I CAN ACHIEVE
IN SUCH A SHORT TIME, BUT I DO NEED
A GOOD RECOMMENDATION FROM YOU, SO… I’LL DO WHAT I CAN. GOOD. OKAY. MAGGIE WILL BE BY TOMORROW. SHE’LL HELP YOU GET SET UP. AND I WILL SEND SOMEBODY BY TO FIX THE PLACE UP
A LITTLE BIT, A HANDYMAN OF SORTS. I NEED SOMEONE TO CHECK IN
ON MY SON WHILE I’M AT THE CLINIC. I’VE GOT A DAUGHTER
HIS AGE. I’LL GET HER AND A FRIEND
TO STOP BY. I WAS THINKING MORE LIKE AN ADULT. I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN FIND. [clears throat] [coughs] ANY DAY NOW, RIGHT? YOUR BABY’S IN POSITION. YOU SHOULD GO INTO LABOR
ANY TIME. I GUESS. I’M THE NEW PEDIATRICIAN. WELL, I’M JUST HERE
FOR THE SUMMER. NATE? HEY, NATE, ARE YOU HOME? NATE? CAN WE GET A TV? THIS SUCKS. HEY. YOU MUST BE THE–
THE HANDY GUY. A LONG WAY FROM THE CITY,
AIN’T IT? CAN I HELP YOU GUYS
WITH SOMETHING? [engine turns over] [snoring] ARE YOU HURT? [slurred]
I’M THE NEW DOCTOR. I’M HERE TO FIX– ANIMALS. OH. THAT’S REAL FUNNY, TERRY. [rattling noise] HELLO? OH, HELLO. YOU MUST BE DR. GIBBS. I GOT MOST OF THE CRAP
SWEPT UP, BUT I STILL CAN’T FIND
THAT STINKY LITTLE RODENT. ARE YOU THE NURSE? [laughs] I AIN’T THE MAID. MAGGIE PERKINS.
PLEASED TO MEET YOU. YOU TOO. UH-HUH. WELL, TERRY, SHE TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR PROFESSIONALISM
AND ALL, AND JUST LET ME SAY THIS. I’VE BEEN A NURSE
FOR 14 YEARS, A MOTHER FOR 23. I’VE BURIED TWO HUSBANDS, AND I’M WORKING
ON MY THIRD. SO IF YOU CAN THINK IT, I’VE SEEN IT
OR I’VE PROBABLY DONE IT, AND YOU DON’T NEED
TO WORRY ABOUT ME. OKAY. ALL RIGHT. AND IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, I CAN PROBABLY
HELP YOU FIND IT, OR SOMEBODY I KNOW WILL, BECAUSE I’M PRETTY WELL
DUG IN AROUND HERE. WELL, THAT’S GOOD TO KNOW. OH, THERE’S A GUY PASSED OUT
ON THE FRONT STEP. OH, SLIDER, HE’S HARMLESS. TERRY THOUGHT IT’D BE
A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE USE OF HIM, AND THAT’S MIGHTY KIND
OF YOU, DR. GIBBS. THAT’S HER HANDYMAN? OH, WELL,
HE’LL SOBER UP BY NOON. WE’LL PUT HIM TO WORK. SO WHAT’S ON THE BOOKS TODAY? WELL, NOTHING SO FAR, BUT WE’LL SEE
HOW THE DAY PLAYS OUT. THERE IS NOTHING SCHEDULED? WELL, THIS AIN’T CHICAGO,
DR. GIBBS. YOU’RE ON MOUNTAIN TIME NOW. I GOT COFFEE BREWING, AND THERE’S A PAPER
IN THE OFFICE. WHY DON’T YOU JUST SETTLE IN? [Slider snoring] [fluttering noise] [door bangs] THAT HAS TO BE
THE NEW DOCTOR’S KID. WE WERE WONDERIN’ IF YOU WANTED TO COME OUT AND PLAY. WHAT ARE YOU DOIN’? GET UP HERE. HI, I’M CHRIS,
AND THIS IS FRED. (Nate)
HI. WHAT’S YOUR NAME? NATE. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
LIVIN’ HERE NOW? JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE. WHERE IS EVERYBODY? MY DAD’S AT WORK, AND I DON’T HAVE A MOM ANYMORE. THAT’S OKAY. I DON’T HAVE A DAD, AND FRED LIVES
WITH HIS UNCLE. SO YOU WANNA COME OUT? MAYBE SOME OTHER TIME. CATCH YA LATER. [yells] OW! AFTERNOON, SIR. ARE YOU OKAY? MUCH BETTER NOW, THANKS. NAME’S SLIDER. YOU MUST BE
THE NEW DOC. YES. I’M DR. GIBBS. YEAH, WELL, I GOT SOME
MEDICAL EXPERIENCE OF MY OWN, SO I DON’T WANT YOU TO TRY NO FUNNY STUFF
AROUND HERE. WHILST I’M HERE, I MIGHT DO
SOME FIXING UP FOR YOU… AS WELL. SO WHERE DO I START? UH… WELL, I GUESS THE FRONT STEP. GOOD, THEN. MAGGIE. SLIDER. (Slider)
YUP. LOOKS BROKE TO ME. WHERE ARE YOU GOING? NEED MY TOOLS. OH, BEAUTIFUL DAY,
ISN’T IT? IS HE COMING BACK? HARD TO SAY. OKAY. CAN’T RIGHTLY
HELP IT, DOC. SHE HAS THEM
GRANDMA SEEJURS. I’M NOT FAMILIAR
WITH THOSE. YOU KNOW, YELPING
AND TWITCHING AND WETTING HERSELF
RIGHT THERE ON THE GROUND. YOU MEAN
GRAND MAL SEIZURES. THAT’S WHAT I SAID. LAST TIME, SHE ALMOST
CHOKED ON A FRY. WELL, OTHER THAN THAT,
SHE SEEMS FINE. I CAN GIVE YOU
SOME ANTISEIZURE MEDICINES THAT MIGHT HELP HER. COME ON, NOW. LET’S GO
INTO THE OTHER ROOM WHILE I TALK
SOME BUSINESS WITH DOC. I’LL SEE YOU. THIS VISIT HERE, HOW MUCH IT GONNA COST? WITHOUT INSURANCE, IT’S $75. HMM, WELL, I HAVEN’T GOT
THE INSURANCE, BUT HERE’S THE DEAL. I CAN’T PAY FOR BOTH YOU AND THE PILLS,
ONE OR THE OTHER. NOW, I WOULD HAVE DONE
WITHOUT YOU ALTOGETHER AND JUST GOT THE PILLS, BUT THEN THEY WOULD HAVE HAD
SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT OVER AT THE CVS. SO HERE’S WHAT
WE’RE GOING TO DO. WHY DON’T YOU WORK THIS OUT
WITH MAGGIE? NO, THIS IS
BETWEEN YOU AND ME, MAN TO MAN. NOW, YOU HELPED CORALEE THERE,
AND I MEAN TO PAY YOU FOR IT. I MEAN TO PAY YOU IN FUTURES. FUTURES? CUCUMBER FUTURES. AS PAYMENT FOR TODAY,
YOU GET SHARES. WHEN THE CUKES COME UP,
YOU COME PICK ‘EM. ALL YOU WANT, ALL SUMMER LONG. ALL RIGHT.
YOU GOT A DEAL. I GOT SOME PAPERS
FOR YOU TO SIGN. [trunk engine turns over] SHARES IN FUTURES. WELCOME TO DUNN’S ROCK, DOCTOR. WE WENT BY THE HOUSE
TODAY. OH, DID YOU MEET
THE NEW DOCTOR’S KID? SORTA. HE’S KIND OF WEIRD. HOW DO YOU MEAN? HE WOULDN’T COME OUTSIDE. OH, HONEY,
HE’S JUST ADJUSTING. GIVE HIM TIME. (Evan)
JUVENILE HEART VALVE GRANT? WHERE’D HE PULL THAT OUT OF? (Marty)
I DON’T KNOW. THE BOARD’S EXTREMELY IMPRESSED
WITH HIM. YEAH, THAT IS IMPRESSIVE. I’M GOING TO HAVE
TO UP THE STAKES HERE. I’M GOING TO NEED
A GLOWING REVIEW FROM THE MAYOR. THAT SHOULD LOCK IT UP. YOU’D THINK, RIGHT? [coughs] REMEMBER ME? WHAT DO YOU WANT? YOU LOOK LIKE YOU COULD USE
SOME HELP WITH THAT BIG BOX. I DON’T. I COULD GIVE YOU A RIDE. WHAT’S YOUR NAME? SALLY. SALLY.
I’M DR. GIBBS. OR, IF YOU WANT, I COULD JUST
DRIVE THE BOX SOMEWHERE. WHAT’S IN THE BOX? HAND-ME-DOWNS. THAT’S A LOT OF CLOTHES. WELL, WE AIN’T SURE
IF IT’S A GIRL OR A BOY, BUT I GRABBED BOTH. DARRYL THINKS
IT’S A BOY, BUT THAT’S JUST
‘CAUSE HE WANTS ONE. DARRYL? MY HUSBAND. YOU SEEM AWFULLY YOUNG
TO BE GETTING MARRIED. I’M 20, ALMOST. WELL, IT AIN’T OFFICIAL YET,
BUT WE MAKE LIKE IT IS ‘CAUSE OF THE BABY
AND ALL. EVEN GOT A RING. WOW, THAT’S BEAUTIFUL. DARRYL AT WORK? KIND OF WORKS WHEN HE’S NEEDED. WHY ISN’T HE HELPING YOU
WITH THE CLOTHES? HE AND MY FOLKS
DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE, SO HE’S NOT WELCOME
ROUND THERE. UP THERE ON THE RIGHT. [sighs] NO, NO, I GOT IT FROM HERE. WHAT DO WE GOT HERE? (Sally)
THIS IS THE NEW DOCTOR. YEAH, WE MET. HOW MUCH THIS GONNA COST ME,
MR. BIG-SHOT? NO CHARGE, DARRYL. ALL RIGHTY. GUESS WE’LL SEE YOU
AROUND, THEN. NICE TO MEET YOU, TOO, DARRYL. YOU HAVE A NICE DAY. NATE? I HEARD NOISES. YOU WANT TO CHECK IT OUT? COME ON. IT’S JUST AN OLD HOUSE, NATE. THERE’S NOTHING DOWN HERE TO BE AFRAID OF. [chuckles] HEY, THIS IS DR. SUMNER’S
OLD HOUSE. WE BETTER KEEP OUT
OF THIS STUFF, NATE. NO PROBLEM. DID ANYBODY STOP BY
TODAY? SOME KIDS. DID YOU PLAY WITH THEM? WHY NOT? WASN’T UP FOR IT. MAYBE TOMORROW? MAYBE. STEP’S FIXED. YEAH, WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? SOMETIME LAST NIGHT,
I FIGURE. WHERE’S HE NOW? thud! [groaning] OW! JUST CHECKING THE FLOORBOARDS. THEY’RE SOLID. SO… WHAT’S NEXT, DOC? WHATEVER NEEDS FIXING, SLIDER. JUST LOOK AROUND AND FIND OUT
WHATEVER’S BROKEN OR UNKEMPT. I’M ON IT. MAGGIE. MORNING, SLIDER. YOU GO
ON ANY ADVENTURES? ADVENTURES? WE GO ON ‘EM
ALL THE TIME. AIN’T THAT RIGHT, FRED? WELL, ME AND FRED
ARE HEADING INTO TOWN TO GET SOME ICE CREAM. WANNA COME? SURE. (Chris)
WHAT ARE YOU DOIN’? DON’T BE SCARED. COME ON. GUESS THERE AREN’T
TOO MANY FORESTS WHERE YOU COME FROM, HUH? (Nate)
NO. ONLY PARKS. FRED UNCLE’S SAYS
THERE’S MAGIC IN THE FOREST. SAYS IT’S
THE ONLY PLACE LEFT. AIN’T THAT RIGHT, FRED? MAGIC? YEAH. IT GIVES US
OUR POWERS. WE HAVEN’T FOUND
WHERE IT COMES FROM YET, THOUGH. BUT I THINK IT LIVES
DEEP INTO THE FOREST AROUND ANY PATH WE USE. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN
IF YOU FOUND IT? I WOULD THINK
JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. DEPENDS ON YOUR POWER,
THOUGH. WHAT’S YOURS? I DON’T HAVE ONE. SURE, YOU DO. YOU JUST DON’T KNOW IT. FRED TALKS TO THE WIND
AND CAN MAKE THE CLOUDS MOVE, AND I TALK TO THE ANIMALS. REALLY? YOU HAVE A POWER. WE’LL HELP YOU FIND IT. (Maggie)
HEY, JULIE. WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? OH, TERRY WANTED ME
TO DROP OFF THIS LETTER FOR THE GOOD DOCTOR. OH, I CAN TAKE IT FOR HIM. OH, NO, NO, I ALSO HAVE
THIS PIE THAT I BAKED. SORT OF WELCOMING PRESENT. IS HE AROUND? YEAH, GO ON BACK. HEY, DOC. HI. I’M JULIE. WE MET THE OTHER DAY
AT THE DINER. OH, YEAH, RIGHT, RIGHT. HOW ARE YOU? OH, I’M SICK. I NEED A CHECKUP. REALLY? NO. BUT I CAN BE. THANKS FOR THE PIE. ANY TIME. IT’S FROM THE MAYOR. OH. EVERYTHING OKAY? YEAH. WELL, I APPRECIATE YOU
COMING BY, AND THANK YOU
FOR THE PIE. IT’S VERY SWEET. AND IF YOU NEED ANYTHING
AT ALL, YOU JUST GIVE ME
A CALL, NOW. TERRY SAID YOU MIGHT BE
LOOKING FOR A SITTER. WOULD THAT BE FOR YOU
OR YOUR BOY? DON’T PAY THEM
ANY ATTENTION. OH, LOOK. WHAT DO WE GOT HERE? LOOKS LIKE THE MUTE AND HIS BOYFRIEND
FOUND THEMSELVES A STRAY. STUFF IT, TOMMY. WHO ARE YOU? YOU RELATED TO THESE FREAKS? LOOKS LIKE WE GOT US
ANOTHER MUTE. YOU’RE THE NEW DOC’S KID,
AIN’T YOU? WE GOT US A REAL BIG-CITY BOY. I HEAR KIDS FROM THE CITY
ARE TOUGH. THAT TRUE? LEAVE HIM ALONE, TOMMY. YOU GONNA HAVE A GIRL DO
YOUR FIGHTING FOR YA? THESE GUYS ARE WIMPS. LET’S HIT THE HOLE. LATER, GIRLS. THAT’S TOMMY. HE’S A PROBLEM. [people talking] OKAY, PEOPLE! PEOPLE, SETTLE!
SETTLE! [banging] SETTLE! [talking ceases] OKAY. NOW, I THINK THIS HAS BEEN
VERY PRODUCTIVE. AS I UNDERSTAND IT, ROGER’S GOING TO DONATE
SOME MATERIAL FOR THE HOLES
ON OLD CEDAR ROAD. RICK AND HIS CREW, TIME PERMITTING,
ARE GONNA FIX AND FILL THEM. OKAY. NOW, EVERYTHING’S COVERED
FOR THE SUMMER SET-OFF. OH, Y’ALL,
LET’S KEEP OFF THE GRASS. IT TOOK A YEAR
TO REGROW PROPERLY. [laughter] ALL RIGHT? AND DO NOT FORGET, THE NEW SOFTBALL LEAGUE
FUND-RAISER’S COMING UP. I EXPECT TO SEE Y’ALL THERE. AND, FINALLY… NOW, I KNOW SOME OF Y’ALL
HAVE BEEN APPROACHING ME ABOUT THE NEW CLINIC. AH. AIN’T NEEDED,
AND THAT’S ALL. AND THAT’S ALL! [people talking] SETTLE! [talking ceases] TONIGHT, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU
TO THE NEW DOCTOR, WHO’S GOING TO GET
THE WHOLE THING OFF THE GROUND. DR. GIBBS? (Rick)
HE AIN’T WELCOME. RICK. IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS,
NOW WOULD BE THE– BEFORE THERE ARE
ANY QUESTIONS, LET ME JUST SAY
WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS TO BE ABLE TO COME TO A QUAINT LITTLE TOWN
SUCH AS DUNN’S ROCK, WHERE MY KNOWLEDGE
AND EXPERIENCE CAN AND SHOULD BE EXPLOITED
TO THE FULLEST. OH, THIS SHOULD BE GOOD. I’VE BEEN PRACTICING MEDICINE
FOR NINE YEARS, AND I’M BOARD CERTIFIED
IN PEDIATRICS. IN LAYMAN’S TERMS, THAT MEANS THAT I’M A DOCTOR
FOR CHILDREN… IN CASE ANY OF YOU
WEREN’T SURE. I CAN FIELD ANY QUESTIONS NOW. I’VE HEARD ABOUT
THESE TOWN MEETINGS BEFORE, AND I’VE SEEN THEM ON TV, BUT TO SIT THROUGH ONE
IS REALLY… QUITE A TREAT. I MUST SAY I APPRECIATE THE SIMPLICITY
OF YOUR LIFESTYLE, TO NOT HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR A BAKE SALE
OR POTHOLES. BUT THERE IS A HEALTH RISK
ASSOCIATED WITH LACK OF EDUCATION. REGULAR CHECKUPS ARE NOT ONLY IMPORTANT
BUT ALSO INFORMATIVE. HAVE YOU HEARD THE ONE ABOUT THE TWO REDNECKS
AND THE ROOSTER? (Terry)
UH, DR. GIBBS? THAT’S GOOD. OKAY. OKAY. I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR COMING OUT TONIGHT. HAVE A GOOD ONE. UM, EVAN? CAN YOU WAIT FOR ME? I’LL JUST BE A MINUTE. IT’S GOING
TO BE FINE. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT. [sighs] MAY I CALL YOU “EVAN”? OF COURSE. THAT WAS QUITE A SPEECH. I GOT NERVOUS. DOESN’T USUALLY HAPPEN
TO ME. IT’S A ROUGH CROWD. BUT THEY’RE GOOD PEOPLE. THE FLYERS? NOT SO GOOD. I’M AT A LOSS. EVAN, LOOK AROUND YOU. WHAT DO YOU SEE? AN EMPTY PARKING LOT. TREES. STARS. THE TREES,
YOU SEE HOW THEY MOVE? THE STARS AND THE TREES, HOW DOES THAT
MAKE YOU FEEL? I DON’T KNOW. CALM, I GUESS. THAT’S IT RIGHT THERE. YOU THINK THEY OUGHT
TO MAKE YOU FEEL CALM, BUT YOU DON’T ACTUALLY
FEEL IT. THE PEOPLE AROUND HERE, THEY SEE AND FEEL
DIFFERENT THINGS. THEY MOVE
AT A DIFFERENT PACE. THERE’S A PULSE. AND UNTIL
YOU CAN OPEN TO IT, YOU’RE NEVER GONNA GAIN
THEIR TRUST. I’M NOT SURE
I KNOW HOW TO DO THAT. IT JUST TAKES TIME. HOPEFULLY, YOU’LL
STICK AROUND LONG ENOUGH. [woman coughing] YOU OKAY? YEAH, BUT THIS IS
A LITTLE WEIRD, ISN’T IT? WHAT ABOUT SURGERY? SURGERY WOULD BE INEFFECTIVE. THE GOAL NOW IS TO PROLONG LIFE WITH AS LITTLE SUFFERING
AS POSSIBLE. I’M GOING TO FIND A WAY
TO BEAT THIS. DAD? ARE YOU OKAY? YEAH, OF COURSE. GO BACK TO SLEEP. (Chris)
ANYTHING YET? NOPE. MAYBE I’M NOT
DOING IT RIGHT. IT MIGHT TAKE SOME TIME,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE A CITY KID. DOES THAT MAKES
A DIFFERENCE? I THINK SO. BESIDES, YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW
ABOUT SPECIAL POWERS. LET’S HEAD TO THE HOLE. ISN’T THAT WHERE
THOSE JERKS HANG OUT? THERE. (Slider)
WELL, WHAT WE GOT HERE? DON’T LOOK SICK TO ME. OH, IGNORE HIM. YOU COME ON IN.
COME ON. DOC? WOULD YOU MIND
YOUR OWN BUSINESS, YOU SKANKY OLD FOOL? PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY
IS MY BUSINESS, MAGGIE. [running footsteps] WHERE’S THE DOCTOR? (Maggie)
HE’S IN WITH A PATIENT! DOCTOR! I’M WITH A PATIENT. DOCTOR, IT’S SALLY. SHE’S HAVING THE BABY! ALL RIGHT, CALM DOWN. IT’S ALL MESSED UP! I MEAN, I DON’T KNOW– WE–WE BEEN TRYING
ALL NIGHT. TRYING WHAT? AND NOW– THE CORD– THE CORD IS ALL
TANGLED UP. AND–AND SHE’S BLEEDING.
SHE’S BLEEDING. WHERE IS SHE? WELL, SHE CAN’T WALK
VERY FAST. WHAT? I RAN AHEAD. COME ON! [Sally screaming] BE HERE IN 15. AND 15 BACK?
THAT’S NO GOOD. KEEP HER STILL. (Sally)
IT HURTS! [crying] IT HURTS, DOC! (Evan)
OKAY, SALLY? THE UMBILICAL CORD
IS TWISTED. THAT’S A BAD SIGN. IT’S VERY DANGEROUS
FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE
TO GET YOUR BABY OUT. I’M GOING TO PERFORM
A SIMPLE OPERATION. IT’S CALLED A C-SECTION. (Sally)
C-SECTION? WHY? IT’S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET
YOUR BABY OUT SAFELY. IT’S A SIMPLE INCISION. WE TAKE YOUR BABY OUT,
AND WE STITCH YOU UP. THAT’S SURGERY. WE DON’T HAVE THE PAPERWORK
FOR THAT; WE CAN’T. YES, WE CAN. I’M SAVING THIS BABY. OKAY, HONEY,
I’M JUST GOING TO– YOU’RE GONNA FEEL
A LITTLE PINCH HERE, ALL RIGHT? WHAT IS THAT? (Maggie)
IT’S ANESTHETIC. SHOULDN’T WE JUST WAIT
FOR THE AMBULANCE? IF WE DO, ONE OF THEM
WILL DIE, MAYBE BOTH. [screaming] DARRYL, WE NEED YOU
TO WATCH HER PULSE. OH, GOD.
OH, GOD. DARRYL, I NEED YOU
TO STAY WITH ME. YOU NEED TO RUB
AND SQUEEZE HER FINGERS AND WATCH HER PULSE. CAN YOU DO THAT?
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT. [Sally crying] YEAH. DARRYL? DARRYL! JUST LET HIM GO.
HE’S USELESS. SALLY, YOU’RE GONNA FEEL
A LITTLE BIT OF PRESSURE. OKAY? I’LL TRY TO MAKE THIS
AS PAINLESS AS POSSIBLE. STAY WITH US. THEY’RE JUST IN THERE– I KNOW. (Maggie)
OH, GOD. SLIDER, YOU GET ON OVER THERE, AND YOU WASH YOUR HANDS
REAL GOOD! YOU’RE GOING TO HELP US NOW! NOW, SLIDER! MY BABY. YOU SICK? NO. YOU HAVIN’ A BABY? (Evan)
STAY WITH US, SALLY. YEAH. THEY DO THAT HERE? YOU’RE DOING GREAT, SALLY. YOU’RE DOING GREAT. I GUESS SO. [baby crying] YOU HEAR THAT? SOMETHING ELSE,
AIN’T IT? THEY’RE IN THERE. SHOULDN’T YOU GO SEE? YEAH. YEAH. (Evan)
NICE AND GENTLE. THERE WE GO. THE UMBILICAL CORD
WAS WRAPPED AROUND THE BABY’S NECK,
SO WE DID A C-SECTION. YOU WANT TO GET HER ON I.V.
AS SOON AS YOU CAN AND CHECK HER LEVELS;
SHE LOST A LOT OF BLOOD. THERE’S A DEFORMITY
ALONG THE SPINE. IT’S SPINA BIFIDA. BOY OR GIRL? I DON’T KNOW. SHOULDN’T YOU RIDE WITH THEM? YES, SIR. PARDON ME. THIS IS A GOOD TEST. NOW, THINK OF HOW
YOU’D GET BACK AT TOMMY, IF YOU COULD. OKAY, I WOULD PROBABLY– NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. YOU CAN’T TELL US. IT’S LIKE A WISH. IF YOU SHARE IT,
IT WON’T COME TRUE. THINK IT REALLY HARD. IF YOU HAVE ANY POWER,
IT’LL HAPPEN. OKAY, DONE. NOW WHAT? WE WAIT AND SEE. IT DOESN’T ALWAYS HAPPEN
RIGHT AWAY. YOU HAVING FUN HERE? DO YOU NEED A SITTER? I CAN HANDLE IT. YOU’RE GROWING UP
SO FAST. NATE, I WANT TO–
I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT– [vehicle approaching] GENTLEMEN. CAN I HELP YOU? WE WERE SENT FOR YOU. YOU BEST COME WITH US. IT’S URGENT. I AIN’T TAKING “NO”
FOR AN ANSWER. DAD? IT’S OKAY, NATE. GO INSIDE. I’M JUST GOING TO GO
WITH THESE MEN FOR A LITTLE BIT. [whispers]
NATE, GO INSIDE. (Rick)
YOU BETTER BE AS GOOD
AS THEY SAY YOU ARE. (Evan)
I THINK I KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS,
IF HE HAS A– AH, JUST AS I THOUGHT. IT’S A TICK BITE. THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE RASH
AND THE SYMPTOMS. CAN YOU MAKE HIM BETTER? NOT HERE. WE DO HAVE MEDS
AT THE CLINIC THAT WOULD HELP HIM
TEMPORARILY, BUT HE WILL HAVE TO GO
TO A HOSPITAL IN ASHEVILLE IF YOU
WANT THIS TO CLEAR UP. IS HE GONNA DIE? NO. ONLY IF UNTREATED. I APPRECIATE IT. IS EVERYTHING OKAY? YEAH. WHAT DID THEY WANT? OH, IT WAS A KID,
ABOUT YOUR AGE. TOMMY.
HE WAS REALLY SICK. HE NEEDED SOME HELP. YOU KNOW THIS KID? IS HE OKAY? WELL, HE’S GOING TO BE FINE. THEY’RE TAKING HIM
TO THE HOSPITAL IN ASHEVILLE. I’M AS SURPRISED AS YOU. SLIDER? MORNING, DOC. IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT, SLIDER? IT’S A FINE MORNING, DOC. THEY FIXED
THAT BABY GIRL UP, RIGHT? THERE IS A NEURAL TUBE DEFECT. IS THAT BAD? SHE’S GOING TO NEED A NUMBER
OF EXPENSIVE PROCEDURES, AND EVEN THEN, IT’S NOT CERTAIN
HOW LONG SHE’LL LAST. SHE’S A FIGHTER;
I CAN TELL. [laughs] (Maggie)
