Fall Pilot Season: A Gifted Man
Ron the billionaire senator is on the phone and wants to recover at St. Barts and Michael's like, "No, that island is filled with Real Housewives of New York and satchels of gold," and Ron is peeved. Michael's foxy CFO enters the room, he hangs up and the two drink wine talking about business. The stock market sucks, but their company is only down 1.1 per cent and Michael is like "Damn, girl." The CFO may or may not be shady, but she is certainly sexy and the two go at it for what is obviously not the first time.
Michael is taking a post-coitus victory walk around the corner when he sees the red dodge ball from his jog and then Anna "The Ghost" Paul. Anna's like, "I'm really sorry about haunting you," and Michael is like, "NOOOO!" Turns out Anna got hit by a car and died while trying to help some kids get their red dodge ball in the street. Michael is like, "Dude, stop haunting me." Anna says the ball followed her "here", which could mean the afterlife or anywhere near Michael, I'm not sure. She needs his help, and he's like, "Doing what? Making pottery?" and apparently a lot of people depended on her in the Bronx and she never trained any of 'em. She's worried about her staff, so she tells Michael to go to her old clinic and open her files. Doc, you remember her password right? MYMIKE (which would be really, really easy to hack, at least make it MYM!KE1) and he agrees.
At the office, MYMIKE is passed out at his couch and Rita bring him a clean shirt. Rita's ready to start the day, but Michael tells her to cancel his mornings and to book him a MRI to scan for ghosts.
He drives up to the Bronx, where he sees a clinic that is nowhere near as swagger as his, but looks pretty accurate to what the rest of the clinics in the forgotten boroughs of NYC look like. He's charges up to the front desk and is all, "Can I get to your computers?" and the dude behind the bulletproof glass is like, "Yay! Tech guy! Come in!" Sitting in Anna's office, he sees her picture and just can't believe she's gone. He logs in and all is good. Walking out, he can't help but notice this kid who had a seizure and obviously needs an MRI. He gives some unsolicited and extremely helpful advice to the kid's mother, and the nurse is like, "Hey fancy neurosurgeon, why can't you give the MRI, you selfish pig?" and he can't really smooth talk his way out. He gives the mom his business card and she wants to know which bus goes there. It's gonna be a looong day.
