Hank's hospital room. He and Marie and Flynn are playing cards, and if he wasn't already annoyed by his condition and his wife's cheerful humming, he's certainly annoyed by her habit of saying "knock-knock" instead of just knocking the table, like you're supposed to do (and then defending this practice by saying this is just how she plays cards). But it's Flynn who lays down the winning hand, prompting some carping from Hank. Marie looks at the kid skeptically, "Have you been playing cards with your dad?" Fortunately, he has no idea what she's talking about. She then tells Flynn -- in a passive-aggressive poke at Hank -- that the doctors have told Hank he's clear to go home, only he's not going to. Hank fumes and cites the fact that he's "shitting in a pan and peeing in a pitcher," much less his nonfunctioning legs, as reasons why he's not going home yet. "So people in wheelchairs should be in hospitals," Flynn says, in a tiny little moment of heroism. "What about people on crutches? Maybe I should be in here too." Marie smirks, almost imperceptibly, and Flynn has a bit of the "gotcha" gleam in his eye too. Hank's having none of it, saying, "Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Deal, you little prick." Flynn knows he's made his best effort and picks up the cards.
