Outside in the hall, by the Monet, Mitch asks why Cameron would do something behind his back that he told him not to do. Cameron says he's not suicidal. Mitch asks then why did his bank call and ask for clearance on the request for two hundred and fifty dollars from his mutual account. Cam says that's old news and to not worry about it. Mitch starts to yell at Cam and then pulls him into a hug, of course. Cam asks if Mitch is all right. Mitch stares at Coma Kenny over Cam's shoulder. There is not one other person in this hospital. The five-note jingle is going wild. Mitch says, "I just want you to know..." "Dad, I know. I know," Cam says and pulls Mitch in for another hug.
Meghan sits brooding against a wall in an empty room. Mary walks in and sits down and asks Meghan how she's feeling. "Kinda like I'm never gonna be happy again," Meghan says with a half-laugh. Oh, the martyrdom. Mary says she knows how Meghan is feeling, and that she doesn't want to see any more grim faces or get any more bad news. Meghan says (with an obvious motive) that perhaps for the next five minutes they could talk about "anything other than here." Mary asks if Meghan would like to talk about Clay. Would she!? The five-note jingle kicks back up again as the Centers of the Universe form their secret alliance. Meghan says she thought Mary didn't want to hear any more bad news. She says that her and Clay are taking a break. "I... I don't think he's in love with me." Mary says, "One of the best things about you, honey, is your ability to express your feelings, your love for someone else." Really? I did not know that. "For Clay, for most people that's a hard thing to do." "Maybe it's... it's like some warning sign that we're not supposed to be together." Mary shakes her head. "Making a relationship work is work. You have to resist the urge to walk away when things get tough. I mean, taking the easy way out is just that -- it's easy. It doesn't make you stronger. Or better." Meghan leans her head on Mary's shoulder and wishes she could date her dad or her brother. She doesn't, but she does.
Meghan walks outside the hospital and sees Clay putting his mother in the front seat of the car. He tells her that after some more physical therapy she's not going to need his help anymore. Meghan interrupts this tender moment immediately. She says that she wants to talk to him but he starts talking too and she hears him say, "This is all my fault," which immediately gets her beaming. She says "Okay, me first." Of course she's first. "I get how you are. I get that you have trouble saying stuff, no I even get the lie of it all." She says that if he found someone that he wants to open himself up to then why didn't he just take the chance? Clay interrupts to say that he only hesitated because he's never been in love before. "Never really felt it until now. I mean... Amy." I guess he forgot her name for a second. "I always knew we'd break up. But you feel like... forever." Before he can go on about his feelings and "open up" like she's bitching he should do, she tells him to shut up and starts kissing him. Oh, the sensitive piano is killing me softly with its song. "Meghan Green. I love you." He touches her head a lot. "See, that wasn't so hard now, was it?" she asks. She sighs and Clay asks, "Kenny?" "He's in that bed...just...so alone." "I know it sounds weird but... he's not." They hug. Meanwhile, Mom's in the front seat going, "Hello? Helloooo? Legs don't work here. Really need to pee." Fade to black. Commercial.
