Abbott/Brown Office. Patch tells Rose, who is getting re-dressed, that Louise should have her X-rays in a few minutes. Rose says shortly, "That's fine." Patch sighs and asks Rose what she wants from him. Rose apologizes, and says she doesn't know what's wrong with her. She says, initially, she didn't want another child, but when she started thinking about the possible baby..."I really wanted her." Patch: "A her?" Rose says yes, she was hoping for a girl -- appropriately fingered and toed, of course. Patch says he never felt more useful in this world than the day he became a father. Rose tells him that they raised two wonderful children with good hearts. Patch: "The girl's going to Princeton, for heaven's sake. I'd say we did fantastic." ["Just don't let her start an internet business. Heh." -- Sars] He tells her he read an article about a lady in Budapest who gave birth in her seventies. Rose says they have a couple decades on her. Patch says they could try, if she wanted. Rose is delighted. Louise arrives with the X-rays. Patch puts them up on his little light box thing, and Rose says she's free that very night, if he'd like to start trying again. Aw. Patch says that sounds good to him. He says he doesn't see any visible fractures in Rose's back, but they'll set up a scan just to be certain. Rose says she's got to get home. Patch says he's right behind her. Something bad is going to happen.
Back at Dimples's house, it appears that Veneers has gone bar-hopping. Good riddance. Treat and Dimples are eating Nina's food. Dimples says he doesn't know how she does it -- her cooking is like magic. He says he doesn't know what just happened. Treat: "I'll tell you what happened; your brother came here and decided to stir the pot. That's what families do, and that's what makes the holidays so fun." Dimples says he knew his brother would pull something like this, because he always does. He says he thought he was happy, but maybe he's not. Treat says he got the same pitch when he moved to Everwood, about how he was crazy, and he'd miss the city, and never last a year. Dimples asks what made him stop listening. Treat says it wasn't any great epiphany or anything, but he knows that Nina's worth it. "I was a disaster when I got here. Nina was the first friend I had...and she saved me from myself more times than she should have." Dimples says he knows. Treat tells him he is surely not going to find somebody like her in L.A., so he better recognize. Dimples gives Treat a funny look, and says he just figured something out, the way Treat and Nina are so close, and he gets it. Treat asks what he gets. Dimples: "Why Nina was in love with you." Treat stops short. Dimples is all, "You had to know." Treat obviously didn't know, but doesn't say anything. Dimples tells Treat the big irony is, he actually told Nina to go for it, and he really respects Treat for not wanting to risk their friendship like that. Treat looks like he might throw up. Well, Treat, I hate to have to tell you this: Life sucks.
