Jake: Well, there she is! Let me be the first to congratulate you. Hail to the chief.
Frankie: Hey, Ma. How you doing?
Angie: Hi, baby. Well, I'm ready to get to work -- no, actually, more than ready. Listen, before I get on with my day, I want you all to know that I am thrilled to be back. But it won't be business as usual because I'm not the same chief of staff who left you. I'm better. I'm more fully aware of the needs of patients who have struggled to be independent but at times have to rely on health care professionals. I may fumble a bit -- being blind does that -- but I'm learning more every day. And my o&m specialist will be joining me for a while. Not S&M, Jake. O&M -- orientation and mobility specialist. Now, I will learn to navigate these halls and this job without my sight. Now, I may need help occasionally getting from one place to another or with documents until I finish my Braille training. But on the upside, my sense of smell has improved to the point where I can tell you what the cafeteria is serving, even up on the third floor.
Jake: Ooh. Is that a good thing?
Angie: And for any of you who thinks that losing my sight has caused me to go soft, well, you've assumed wrong. I will run this hospital just as well -- even better than I did before. There. I'm done. So let's get to work.
Frankie: It's great to have you back, Mom.
Jake: I second that.
Jake: What's the matter with you, though, Jesse? You look like you're lost or something.
Jesse: I just want her home where I can take care of her and make sure everything's ok.
Frankie: Everyone here is gonna be looking out for her, dad. I'm at the top of the list.
Jesse: I know. It's just -- I don't know. We know each other so well, but I don't know what she needs, what she's feeling, because I'm not blind.
Jake: Or pregnant.
Frankie: Well, mom's never been the type to put her feet up and be taken care of, but I'm with you. I wish she'd let us wrap her in bubble wrap until the baby was born.
Jesse: Yeah, you want to have that conversation with her?
Frankie: Hell to the no. Right.
Shelley: Your son's here.
Angie: Oh. I should've known that.
Shelley: Mind reading is on tomorrow's schedule. I'll see you then?
Angie: Yeah. First thing.
Angie: Frankie, do you have a minute?
Angie: Thank you.
Frankie: For what?
Angie: Letting me do this myself. And I'm sorry about earlier.
Frankie: Inside these walls, we're doctor and chief of staff. You told me that a thousand times, but I can't turn off being your son when I clock in.
Angie: That's exactly what you need to do. But I overreacted. I guess I'm just afraid that people will feel sorry for me. I'm sorry.
Frankie: No, you don't have to apologize. I deserve it. So if you want to write me up, write me up.
Angie: I am not going to write you up. But next time, I will knock you upside the head with my cane.
Frankie: Well, lesson learned.
Angie: Sweetheart? You know, when you injured your hands, I helped you. But you were the one who had to find the strength, courage to use those hands again just to treat patient again. That's what I need to do. Can you understand that?
