As soon as he says the magic words Mitch says that they won't let Kenny die and Mary walks off to a doorway so she can stare off blankly and Elizabeth walks into her Invisible Shield until they need her for a line or two later. Mary stares across the hall to a woman sitting at the Coma Pepsi Girl's bed. She reads from a book. She looks up at Mary. Mary smiles and thinks, "My kid's got meningitis. Beat that, Hit and Run." The woman smiles back and stares at Coma Pepsi Girl and thinks, "My kid has talent. So sorry for you." Close up on the Coma Pepsi Girl. Mary visibly pulls her head back, having to shun herself from the amazing cuteness and talent that this little girl can ooze being completely brain dead. Mary can't take the competition, so she licks her lips and turns back around with a hair flip. She walks back through the World's Largest Hospital Room and passes Mitch leaning against a pillar (!) and by the enormous clock outside the windowed wall (!) that says it's eight o' clock and over to Kenny's bed. As she leans down we see some guy in the back standing over another hospital bed, but we can't see who is in the bed. Mary kisses Kenny's head as Elizabeth keeps her arms around the other Green kids. Close up on Meghan who is trying so hard to make tears that she's smiling. Cameron mouth-breathes and swallows. Mitch keeps his hand on Mary's shoulder. Mary looks at him and buries her head in his arms, ashamed that not one family member could drum up some tears for the possible death of Kenny. As Mitch pets Mary's head the person visiting the bed is much closer and suddenly writing something in a chart. I guess this guy dressed in black pants and a black t-shirt is supposed to work for the hospital? Fade to black and the first damn commercial break.
When the announcer comes on to say I'm watching Get Real, he says the title of the show in such a way that I cannot tell if he's commenting on the last scene.
Fade up on the World's Largest Hospital Room. Clay walks in with a woman in a wheelchair and introduces his mother (Andrea) to Meghan and Mary. Mary thanks her for coming and Andrea says she wanted to come down since she had spent six months in that hospital. Clay gives Meghan a look that says, "I'm so the better person here." Meghan looks down as her hair says, "You shut the fuck up." Andrea is still talking and says that she found that "people can be just as healing as the medicine." Uncomfortable silent moment. Andrea asks how Kenny is doing. Mary says that he's "doing" and that she's not leaving until he wakes up. Andrea sucks her lip and nods like, "Right. You are Mary Green, right? Center of the Universe? Woman who went out for ice cream while her brother in law was to be thrown in jail? Just checking." Andrea says that she'll see if she can get her nurse transferred down. Supposedly the best in the ward and stuff. Since it doesn't even look like Kenny has a nurse, that might be a good idea. Cue that five-note Get Real jingle that you know and love as Mary gives Andrea a fake smile. Meghan avoids Clay's stares by looking towards the floor.
