Dr. Hearn: I've opted for chemotherapy as probably our best, most aggressive form of treatment. This chart lays out a treatment plan for the next few months.

Liberty: Months.

Dr. Hearn: After that, we'll re-evaluate.

Jack: Hi. Sorry I'm late.

Janet: Hi. Is everything okay?

Jack: Yeah, just stuff at the station.

Janet: Do you have to get back?

Jack: No. I passed it on. What did I miss?

Liberty: Schedule for my chemo diet. Looks like I'm gonna be bald in three months, just in time for prom. Maybe I can find a wig that matches my corsage.

Janet: Liberty --

Liberty: I was trying to be optimistic.

Jack: So we're sure that chemo is the best treatment here?

Dr. Hearn: Oh, I am sure.

Jack: Well, uh, no offense, but I -- I think we -- we should hold off on committing to that until we, uh, talk to the specialist in new York.

Janet: I agree. Yes.

Dr. Hearn: Of course. I think this trip is a good idea.

Liberty: Oh, yeah. It will be great. We'll make sure to send you a postcard from the empire state building and the Manhattan Cancer Center, 'cause it's just -- like, I hear it's a big go-to for tourists.

Janet: Liberty, please stop. I'm so sorry, Doctor.

Dr. Hearn: Don't be. Stay feisty, young lady. Cancer cells hate it.

Liberty: Yeah. They're gonna despise me.

Dr. Hearn: I'll see you all when you get back.

Liberty: [Laughs] This Dr. Hearn gets my sense of humor. What, did you guys forget how to laugh? I'm -- gonna go for a walk.

Janet: It's -- it's very cold outside, Liberty.

Liberty: What will happen? Catch my death. That was supposed to be a joke, Mom. Please, lighten up, okay?

Janet: I don't know what to do. I mean, should I -- should I be mad at her? Should I come down harder?

Jack: No, I think you should start laughing at her jokes, let her get it out of her system.

Janet: Jokes about cancer aren't funny.

Jack: Maybe not, but if a few laughs are gonna help her get through this, then you've got to give her that.

Janet: I'm afraid she's not taking this seriously.

Liberty: I just came to see parker.

Carly: He's at school.

Liberty: Really?

Carly: Yeah. He insisted on going, crutches and all.

Liberty: Wow. He sure is tougher than I am. I couldn't face everybody.

Carly: Hey, sweetie, I know that what you're going through must be really scary. Remember, that to your friends, just -- just same old Liberty.

Liberty: No, I'm not. I'm Liberty who has cancer, so everybody tries really hard not to upset her.

Carly: You know what? Your friends aren't gonna act like that. And if they do, it's just because they're worried about you.

Liberty: I'm tired of everybody being worried about how sick I am, you know? 'Cause I don't even know how sick I am, 'cause I don't feel sick, Carly. I feel like I could, like, run a marathon tomorrow and win.

Molly: You know what? I'm gonna get out of here and let you two girls talk. But you know what, Liberty? You came to the right place, because Carly just helped me through a mini-crisis with the best advice ever.

Liberty: Yeah? What was it?

Molly: "The best way to stop obsessing over your problem is just to obsess over work." You're so smart. Thank you. I love you. I'll see you later.

Carly: Wow. You know something? That's pretty good advice for you, too.

Liberty: Work? Carly, I don't have a job.

[Liberty chuckles]

Carly: Well, you still have a future. And you don't want to go back to school right now. I understand that. Maybe we could start working on that portfolio for F.I.T., huh? What? I say the wrong thing here?

Liberty: There's just -- there's no point.

Carly: Liberty, come on. Wait. You can't let cancer stop you from living your life.

Liberty: It's not the cancer.

Carly: Then what?

Liberty: I missed the deadline to turn my portfolio in. F.I.T. is gone, just like everything else.

Carly: Oh. Honey, I -- I'm sure that if you call them, you know, they'll understand under the circumstances. A few days isn't gonna make that much of a difference.

Liberty: I asked for an extension, and a few days aren't even enough, because I -- I burned my sketches.

Carly: Why?

Liberty: I was just really mad, and I had given up. And now that I'm looking at the letter, it was so stupid, and I'm sorry that I did it, 'cause I really want to go.

Carly: I'm sorry.

Liberty: No. Don't worry. It is what it is. Besides, I'm -- I may not even make it in the fashion world anyway. Maybe in another life.

Carly: Stop it.

Liberty: Who knows? Maybe they have, like, a fashion magazine in heaven.

Carly: Stop it!

Liberty: I'm joking. I'm joking. I feel like I get sick, and no one has a sense of humor anymore. What are -- what are these?

Carly: Uh, that's -- it's nothing. I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things myself and not having much success.

Liberty: These aren't too bad.

Carly: [Laughs] That's really beautiful words of praise.

Liberty: No, I'm sorry.

[Carly laughs]

Liberty: I think they're good. I just, well --

Carly: What?

Liberty: Well, I would -- for one, I would make sure to tighten the waist there. And, like, I think that the, uh, stripes should be vertical. It would make a much cleaner line, definitely on the skirt.

Carly: Oh. Show me.

Liberty: Why?

Carly: Because, it's a good idea. If you can make it a great one, maybe I'll offer you a job.

Liberty: Now who's joking?

Jack: It's a design company that Carly and Craig ran a few years ago. It didn't work out all that well.

Carly: It will be better this time.

Liberty: Yeah, and she's hiring me as her assistant, so she's even gonna let me submit a few designs of my own.

Janet: Well, that is very, very generous. Unfortunately, we're gonna have to turn you down.

Liberty: I don't want to turn it down.

Janet: We have to be practical, Liberty. How are you supposed to have a full-time job and go to school and have --

Liberty: Cancer? I'm not dead yet. I think I've got a few sketches left in me, Mom.

Liberty: How do you want me to deal with this? What do you want me to do?

Janet: I want you to be smart about this, sweetie. I want you to put your treatment first.

Liberty: So in your world, I can't do anything other than my treatment? I can't have a life? I can't have friends? I can't have a job?

Janet: Do you really want all that?

Liberty: Yes!

Janet: Even if it kills you? I'm sorry, sweetie. I didn't mean it to come out like that. I really didn't.

Liberty: Yes, you did. It's what you think. Look, Mom, I know you're scared. I'm really scared. I'm more scared. And this is happening to me. So if there is something that I can hold onto, you know, that will make me feel better or make -- make it easier to -- to have something to hold onto other than my next chemo session, then I'm going to. And I'm going to hold onto that with everything I can. Please don't ruin it for me. Please don't.
