Brown House. Colin knocks on the door. When Ephram answers, he asks for Treat. Ephram calls for him and invites Colin in. He asks Colin if he should wait with him. Colin says that's fine. They stand and stare at each other awkwardly for about forty-five hours. Kiss! Kiss! Colin finally says Ephram doesn't have to wait. Ephram starts to say, "Well, I feel like..." Colin says, "I know how you feel." Now, what does that mean, exactly? He knows that Ephram wants to punch him back? He knows how he feels about Amy? I'm very confused. Colin says he'll just wait by himself. He goes to the living room. Treat finds him, and Colin says he needs to talk for a minute. When they sit down, Treat asks Colin how he is. Colin fakes, "I'm good!" He tells Treat that his day was amazing. He laughs uncomfortably. Treat has no idea what Colin wants. I don't either. Colin finally gets to the point: he tells Treat that if he doesn't wake up the way he's supposed to after the surgery, he doesn't want to come back. He tells Treat, "Don't bring me back." Treat tries to say something reassuring, but Colin interrupts him: "Just promise me that you won't keep trying." Treat promises. Colin hands Treat an envelope, and says he wrote it down just in case. Treat says, "I understand. But everything's going to be fine. This will never get opened." At this point Colin has tears in his eyes. I don't. Aw. I wish Dr. Brown were MY doctor!
Cut to the next morning, in Treat's kitchen. Nina is there, fixing breakfast and generally helping out. Treat tells her she didn't have to do "all this," but Nina says she doesn't mind at all. As she's putting on her jacket, Treat says, "I gotta tell you, Carl's one heck of a lucky guy." Shit, Treat. You mess up when you don't even know it. Nina freezes with her back to Treat. He asks her if she's okay, and Nina says she's just tired. She gives Treat a very, VERY friendly good luck kiss on the cheek. Why not just lick him, Nina? It would be just about the same. Nina puts on her jacket of hatred and lies and goes home to the empty house where her homosexual husband used to share her bed. I'm mean. Ephram asks his dad if he can drive to the hospital. Treat: "Not if we want to get there alive." As they walk out, Ephram cutely flips his water bottle. Yes, you needed to know that.
