Hospital. Colin's cutting his hair. He tells his mom, "I told them if I have to wear a muumuu in public, I get to shave my own head." His mom, who I usually hate beyond reason, is actually bearable today. How did my world get all topsy-turvy? Mommy Hart tells him to be careful. Colin smiles at her and says, "Didn't you give me every single haircut I ever had until high school?" Mommy Hart nods, and says, "Then one day you came home and announced that you needed a cooler barber. You fired me." Colin laughs and apologizes. He asks his mom, "Any chance you'll take the job back?" Aw. She kisses him on the head and starts to cut. Colin gets lots of kisses on the head. Also, I am a professional with the hair, and Mommy Hart is doing some Krazy Kutting right here.
The camera pans out on Colin and his mom, and here's where I might lose it a little bit. A song I'd never heard before, but now have downloaded illegally (just kidding, corporate music people! I did no such thing! I'm not even typing this right now! I think Couch Baron's typing monkeys must have gotten ahold of my computer!) and listen to about one million times a day starts to play. It's "Cathedrals," by Jump, Little Children, and the song talks about the feeling you get in cathedrals that you should go home, and spend a lifetime finding out where home is. It's absolutely beautiful, and perfect for the montage they show us: Colin's mom cutting his hair; Treat studying Colin's x-rays and thinking to himself; Amy packing her bag, and remembering to take Grover with her; the surgical table being prepared; Colin's dad walking the halls of the hospital; back to Colin's head being shaved; Delia and Nina working on a sign for Colin; Treat scrubbing in; Colin's head, fully shaved; the Abbotts leaving together for the hospital; and finally, Colin on the operating table. Treat tells Colin to count backwards from ten. He starts to count, and is out before he gets to five. I haven't seen a more perfect scene this year, people, and I watch a LOT of television.
