Written by Tamar Laddy & Catharine Ledeboer
Previously, on Night Shift...
Claire: I wanted to give you this.
Patrick: What is it?
Claire: My resignation.
Robin: Jagger, what is it?
Jagger: His mother has filed for custody.
Saira: I'm going to help you with this.
[Bomb explodes in front of GH]
[Sounds distorted and muffled as Patrick wakes up to a nightmarish scene]
Woman: Oh, my God! Aah!
[Shouting and screaming]
Jagger: Are you all right?
[People groaning and shouting]
Patrick: You all just stay where you are.
[Man groaning, woman sobbing]
Kyle: Claire? Claire?!
Epiphany: What...what in God's name...
Patrick: Epiphany! Set up triage! Critical patients in the E.R., on-critical in the hub. Epiphany, go!
Jagger: We'll secure the perimeter. I want all non-injured people out of here immediately, you understand me?
Patrick: How could you do this--
Jagger: Back up! Just take it easy! I'll take care of it.
Kyle: Claire? Claire. I might need some help over here!
[Claire coughing and gasping]
Kyle: Come on. Come on.
Leo: Saira! Page a code black and get a disaster team out here. Go! Saira!
Robin: Patrick! Patrick!
Patrick: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Go back inside.
Robin: Are you ok? You're bleeding!
Patrick: I'm fine. Go back inside, please. It's too dangerous.
Robin: No, I'm gonna help.
Jagger: Get down. Down, down! Come on, come on. Uhh!
Leo: Oh, my God!
Anna: I need some help in here, please.
Nurse: What's the problem?
Robert: What's going on out there?
Nurse: Please, you cannot get up.
Anna: You need to help me get him out of here.
Nurse: Oh, we can't unhook him from these machines.
Patrick: You gotta go.
Nurse: I'll get some help.
Robert: I'm telling you.
Anna: Stop it. Ok. We'll just wait this out together, all right? Whatever happens.
Leo: Let's get her on some oxygen and order a stat brain scan.
Epiphany: I've got some morphine on board.
Leo: Call Respiratory in case we have to intubate.
Epiphany: Move, people!
Jagger: My God.
Patrick: Ok, everyone listen up! We need to evacuate to the north parking lot, patients and personnel. Everyone move!
Claire: Ok, I'm ok.
Kyle: No, we should--we should get you checked out.
Claire: No, no, I'm fine.
Patrick: Let's go, people! North parking lot! Move!
Claire: Oh, my God. Oh, my God, let's go help.
Patrick: Bomb squad on the way?
Jagger: Yep. But I don't think we got time to wait.
Claire: All right, listen, she is gonna need a bed in the Neuro ICU. Call County, have them arrange transport stat, ok? Go. All right. What have we got?
Jagger: We're not done here. Once this thing blows, it'll trigger another explosion.
Patrick: A third bomb?
Jagger: Yeah. It's gotta be around here somewhere. It's one of these.
Patrick: Yeah. Which one is the question.
Leo: She's losing a lot of blood.
Kyle: Put pressure on it.
Epiphany: Toussaint, make sure that the blood bank's on their way here.
Toussaint: Blood bank's here in the triage area.
Robin: Let's get that bleeding under control.
Jagger: These guys are too dumb to make something so sophisticated on their own.
Patrick: Probably got the instructions off the Net.
Jagger: In which case...
Patrick: Yeah, but we don't have time to open up a laptop right now.
Jagger: Hold these. Hold these.
Epiphany: First unit of O-positive is hung, O.R. 7 is open.
Kyle: There's fluid draining from the left ear.
Leo: You see a ring of glucose?
Leo: Damn. It's a skull fracture. Test the fluid with a glucose strip and change the CT to an MRI now!
Robin: Come on, Saira, hang in there.
Patrick: Jagger, you better know what you're doing!
Jagger: Yeah, I'm still looking!
Patrick: We got 45 seconds!
Kyle: She's in defib.
Leo: Charge the paddles and push some epi. Start me at 200. Clear!
Jagger: I got it!
Patrick: Ok, what does it look like?
Kyle: Still defib!
Leo: Give a second epi and some atropine. Come on, baby. Clear!
Jagger: It's white! White!
Patrick: Are you sure?!
Jagger: Yes! Go head, cut it!
Anna: Do you want to tell him or shall I?
Robin: No, go ahead.
Anna: No, you should tell him. You're the doctor. Go on.
Robert: Hey, hey, hey, ladies. Talk to the patient.
Robin: Your white count is down to normal, and your chest X-ray is clear.
Robert: And that's...in English?
Robin: [Laughs] Your body is finally responding to the antibiotics. And...your cancer tumor markers have dropped considerably.
Anna: You're beating it, Robert.
Robert: Well... time to celebrate with a suite at the Belleview, I think. You know, apart from me, your mother never could keep her hands off the minibar.
Robin: Ohh... well, actually, um... Mom found this experimental trial for a new drug protocol.
Anna: In Switzerland.
Robert: But you said I was beating it.
Robin: Things are looking really good, but you're not out of the woods yet.
Anna: So this treatment, right, it's, um... monoclonal...yeah, it's monoclonal antibodies. And what it does, it can increase your chances of just staying cancer-free.
Robert: It'll kill me.
Anna: Robert, right about now you should be thanking us, I think.
Robert: Oh. Switzerland, huh?
Anna: Berne. There's a bed... with your name on it, waiting for you. As soon as Dr. Scorpio says you're ready to travel.
Jagger: Patrick, Patrick. You got a second?
Patrick: I'm a dead man walking. I, uh, have a board meeting in 10 minutes. First on the agenda, 6 patients that were injured in the explosion last week.
Jagger: Look, I want you to know that it wasn't your fault the bomb went off.
Patrick: Yeah, it was. It was on my watch in retaliation for a call that I made.
Jagger: Look, if it helps, the case that was filed against you has been dropped. Once we arrested the white supremacists for planting those bombs, they didn't have much of a leg to stand on.
Patrick: Thanks. I can't imagine the board's going to see the silver lining, but...
Jagger: I'd be happy to talk to them. I mean, you weren't the only one who made a bad call on the job.
Patrick: Yeah, about that, Jagger... what I said last week about it being your fault... I was out of line. I'm sorry.
Jagger: No, you were right. It was my responsibility to keep the hospital safe.
Patrick: Well, off to the firing squad.
Jagger: Patrick. Hold on. Whatever happens in there... you are a good doctor and a good leader. Remember that.
Patrick: Yeah, we made a good team out there, didn't we?
Jagger: We sure did.
Patrick: Well, if the FBI's hiring, put in a good word for me.
Jagger: I'll see what I can do.
Patrick: Thanks, man.
Jagger: You got it.
Robin: Saira, you have to come back to us. You have to meet my little girl. Can you feel that? She's a regular Mia Hamm.
Leo: How is she?
Robin: The same.
Leo: You don't have to leave on my account.
Robin: Oh, no, it's ok. Uh... I've got rounds. Julian, thank you.
Leo: For what?
Robin: You did everything you could to save her.
Leo: Yeah. And what if... what if it's not enough?
Robin: All we can do is what Saira would do. Just have faith.
Saira: I thought you didn't pray.
Kyle: Oh. Hey.
Kyle: What are you doing here?
Claire: I had to see H.R. about my last paycheck. Turns out unemployment is not as glamorous as everyone says it is.
Kyle: Listen, I'm--
Claire: Kyle, I just want to say--
Kyle: I'm sorry... for being so upset these last few weeks.
Claire: No, you have every right to be pissed at me.
Kyle: No, I-- and you shouldn't be leaving because of us.
Claire: Oh, I'm not. I... I think I'm coming back.
Kyle: You are?
Claire: Yeah. After the bomb and jumping in there and treating patients...I don't know, I was...it was the first time that I was, like... I can do this. And it's important what we do. Plus, they wouldn't hire me at the coffee shop.
Kyle: Well, that's because you inhale caffeine like it's crack.
Claire: Oh, I'm so sorry.
Kyle: Me, too.
Robert: Let me... you know, I haven't forgotten how to walk, you know.
Anna: Just like you haven't forgotten how to been a pain in the ass.
Robert: Do they have a vaccine for that?
Anna: No, not yet. They don't have it.
Anna: Oh, gosh.
Robert: That's go.
Anna: Ohh... you gave everyone quite a scare, you know.
Anna: Well, they were worried. You know, me, I...took a couple of days' holiday in the city.
Robert: You lie like a rug. You never left my side.
Anna: You must have hallucinated that in your coma.
Robert: You know, it was, uh... it was a pretty crazy trip.
Anna: Oh, yeah? You see anything good?
Robert: I hooked up with some old friends. They...told me that... Robert Scorpio was far from finished.
Anna: I've been thinking...
Robert: Oh, no.
Anna: I'd really like to see you through this. You know, get you back on your feet.
Robert: I think you already have.
Anna: No... my assignment here is not yet complete. I'm coming with you. To Berne.
Robin: Hi there, Sleeping Beauty.
Robin: How's the patient?
Leo: Pulse is normal. BP is--
Saira: 106 over 66.
Leo: The answer to your question is the patient is bossy as ever.
Saira: Which is why I can be let out of here. He wants to keep me locked up in here for another week, so can we please get a second opinion, Doc?
Robin: I'd listen to what the man says. He saved your life, after all.
Leo: Actually, Jagger's the one that pulled you out of the car.
Robin: Julian hasn't left your side for a week.
Leo: Which means I have to get to my rounds if I want to keep my job, so you stay put. Make sure she stays put.
Robin: I--yes, done.
Saira: So Jagger really pulled me out of the car?
Robin: Yep. What? Is there something you're not telling me?
Monica: I mean it, you did very well in there.
Patrick: I don't know.
Monica: Well, I do. I was there.
Robin: Hey. How did it go?
Patrick: Uh, good. I think it went well.
Monica: Yes. He did a remarkable job.
Patrick: Thanks for sticking up for me in there. It meant a lot.
Monica: Well, it was the least I could do. See, Patrick, you're a very, very good surgeon. Nobody in that room doubts that for a second.
Patrick: I appreciate the board seeing that.
Monica: Good. See you later.
Patrick: Thanks, Monica.
Robin: Thank God. I knew they were gonna see that it wasn't your fault.
Patrick: Yeah. You know, I think they made the right decision.
Robin: Yeah. Now you can just put all of this behind you and you'll get better. Being chief of staff is a big job and--
Patrick: Robin, uh... they fired me.
Robin: We haven't done this for a while.
Patrick: What's that, make love in bed?
Robin: [Laughs] Yeah.
Patrick: Hmm. Thank you.
Robin: It was that good, huh?
Patrick: Actually, it was, but that's not what I'm talking about. Thank you for sticking with me through all this...mess.
Robin: What? Don't say that. I just want you to be ok, for you to be happy.
Patrick: Actually, I am.
Robin: Why is that so surprising?
Patrick: I just--I didn't think losing or failing would feel so good.
Robin: You didn't fail.
Patrick: Yes, I did. But it's ok. For the first time in my life, I am ok with not winning. I don't want to be chief anymore. I'm glad I'm not. Now I can go back to doing what I love to do.
Robin: Speaking of which...
Epiphany: So you have a son.
Epiphany: But you--you never... did you know?
Toussaint: It's not something I'm proud of. It's a chapter in my past that I shied away from.
Epiphany: What happened?
Toussaint: I made a mistake. And...as much as I tried over the years to... make up for it... I never had a chance. His mother kept us apart. And then... life got in the way.
Epiphany: [Sighs] I don't know what to say. I would give anything to have one more day with my son, no matter what got in the way.
Toussaint: Well...that's why I need to get things right. He reached out to me.
Epiphany: What are you going to do?
Toussaint: I'm not gonna make the same mistake twice.
Robin: Any word on the custody case?
Robin: I have an excellent lawyer if you need one.
Jagger: Actually, I got in touch with a lawyer in San Francisco. I'm flying back there in a couple of days.
Robin: Oh, good. Stone can stay with us while you're gone if you like.
Jagger: Well, actually, I don't know if we'll be coming back. We're moving back to San Francisco.
Patrick: I sent your biopsy reports and your MRI images to your Swiss team. Once your trial's done, you'll have a follow-up CT scan, tumor marker in about 3 months, then in about 6 months you'll have a PET scan just to monitor the effectiveness of your treatment.
Robert: When do I lose the portable latrine?
Patrick: The colostomy can't be reversed for probably about another year. I'm sorry about that.
Robert: Nothing to apologize for. I mean, you saved my life.
Patrick: The oncologist did that.
Robert: You were there every step of the way, even though you had to run this place.
Patrick: Yeah, it turns out I'm not very good at multitasking.
Robert: You can't let stuff like that get to you. Somebody throws you a curve ball, you snatch it up and stuff it down their throat, then you get back in the race.
Patrick: It's not my job to keep.
Robert: Chief of Staff--that's just a title. I'm talking about life, and I...I speak as someone who almost lost his.
Patrick: Get some rest.
Robert: You promise me one thing. You'll treat your little girl a whole lot better than I treated mine.
Patrick: Sir... you're a great father. And I'm sorry for giving you a hard time about that before.
Robert: Nothing I didn't deserve.
Patrick: Robin loves you. And I promise that I will look at my daughter the same way that you look at yours.
Robert: Thank you. Son.
Robin: You can't leave Port Charles. You just got here.
Jagger: I know.
Jagger: But if Stone's mother gets awarded full custody, I don't know what I would do. He's my entire life.
Robin: I know.
Jagger: Look, I just need to be there to fight for him.
Robin: Yeah. But what about when it's all settled? Will you come back then?
Jagger: I would love to. You know that. But I just can't think past tomorrow, really.
Robin: Of course. Do you want me to check on some Autism specialists in the area?
Jagger: I already started a list. I just want you to know... how much it means to me to have you back in my life.
Robin: Me, too.
Jagger: And I'm sorry if I caused some tension between you and Patrick.
Robin: Oh, no, you didn't. [Laughs] Ok, maybe you did just a little bit, but don't worry about it. It's good for him. A little jealousy keeps him on his toes.
Jagger: I'm gonna miss you.
Robin: Then come back.
Leo: You look so much better.
Saira: Thank you. I think.
Leo: You look beautiful.
Saira: Plastic surgeon says it might leave a scar.
Leo: It doesn't matter. Not to me. Saira, I, uh--
Saira: You don't have to.
Leo: Yeah, I do. I have to. I'm sorry. I... for, um... for cheating on you. And for not coming clean with it. [Crying] Most of all, for hurting you. You are, like, the most amazing woman that's come into my life in... a long time. Forever. You are so sexy. You are so smart. You're so graceful.
Saira: And don't forget bossy and--
Leo: And stubborn as hell. And that's what I love about you. I do. I love you.
Saira: I don't know what to say.
Leo: Say you'll forgive me.
Saira: I do.
Leo: You know, um... when this whole thing is over with and you get out of bed and you feel better, I--I want-- I want to take us on a trip. Just the two of us. A long weekend.
Saira: I can't. Leo, I forgive you, but I can't. I can't be with you.
Leo: What do you mean?
Saira: When you cheated on me... something inside of me shifted. I need to be able to respect myself when I'm in a relationship, and...I just-- I can't get back to that place with you.
Leo: I've changed.
Saira: I know you have. You are a--a good man, Leo. Regardless of what people say. I know who you are. I've seen it. And on some level, I'm going to be envious of the next woman who comes into your life, but... it just...it can't be me.
Anna: So I'm gonna head down to New York tonight, so I can be at the consulate first thing in the morning to get our visas. All right, now...these are applications, passports... oh, my God. You are 2 years older than you said you are. Tsk, tsk.
Robert: Mind if I see your passport?
Anna: Right. So then I'll be back in the evening to pick you up, and then we can catch the flight to Berne. Ok?
Robert: I don't want you missing the wedding. I mean, whenever that is.
Anna: Robin's independent, you know. I mean, she understands that your health is more important.
Robert: I don't want you doing this.
Anna: It's the only way. Really, it's the quickest way, because we don't have time to wait for these papers to be processed.
Robert: I mean...taking care of me. I want to be that man that you fell in love with, not this invalid.
Anna: I don't know about you, Robert, but I was serious before, about what we said. I always did think that we would find our way back to each other. I always thought that.
Robert: Bucket of mai-tais?
Anna: Yeah. I'm not willing to wait anymore. And I can't risk not getting to that day.
Robert: [Sighs] Oh, I do love you.
Anna: You do? I love you, too.
Patrick: Here's a list of all the open staff positions, the spreadsheet I created for patient flow. Human Resource cases that are still under review. And these are reports that need to be filed before the next board meeting.
Patrick: Is that it? I think--I'm not missing anything, am I?
Epiphany: Well, if you are, I know exactly where to find you. Exam room 2. There's a 30-year-old male complaining of severe migraines.
Epiphany: Uh, Dr. Drake.
Epiphany: For what it's worth, I just wanted you to know I think the board made big mistake. You were a fair boss and a loyal friend. The two very rarely walk hand in hand.
Patrick: Get back to work.
[Knock on door]
Saira: Come in.
Jagger: Hey, you.
Saira: Hiya, stranger.
Jagger: Here. This is for you.
Saira: Thank you.
Jagger: You're welcome.
Saira: I was beginning to wonder when you would show up.
Jagger: Oh, I'm sorry. I've just been caught up with Stone's custody case.
Saira: I understand.
Jagger: I did come around here, but you were talking to Leo and...
Saira: No, Jagger...
Jagger: But I've been hounding Robin every hour on how you were doing and...I'm glad you're ok.
Saira: Thank you. I hear you had a hand in it.
Jagger: I did. Um... I'm going back to San Francisco.
Jagger: For the trial.
Saira: Of course.
Jagger: I want to tell you, without you, when I first walked in here with stone... I was angry, I was confused. I...I couldn't accept the fact that this was happening to me. But now, I wouldn't change a single thing about him.
Saira: That's wonderful.
Jagger: I mean, his Autism is part of who he is, and I love him all the more for it. And I have to thank you for that.
Saira: Just when it felt like things were getting started.
Jagger: I know what you mean.
Saira: I'll miss you.
Jagger: I'll miss you, too.
Robin: Mom called. She's downtown. She'll be here in 20 minutes. And the helicopter is waiting on the roof to take you guys to JFK.
Robert: I don't see why I need a whole lot of fancy new luggage. Now, this duffel bag and I, we've been--we've been to hell and back. You and me, duff. It's always been you and me on every mission. We got a relationship.
Robin: I'm sure you do. Listen, um, I put your pills in the carry-on just in case your luggage gets lost. And I'm having a car pick you guys up in Geneva and take you directly to the research center.
Robin: What? I have to finish packing. I have to get a copy of your medical records--
Robert: I'm gonna be ok. I'm...going to be... O...K.
Robin: I know.
Robert: And as soon as I'm pumped full of all these juicy new drugs, I'm coming back for a nice long visit.
Robin: Is that before or after you and duff go fight rebel forces in the Congo?
Robert: I think I'm done with that. It's more important that I spend time with you. In a way, I'm almost glad that this happened. It... brought us back together again.
Robin: I just don't want to lose you again, Dad.
Robert: You won't. I'm coming back to change my granddaughter's diapers.
Robin: [Laughs] You better.
Robert: I love you, kiddo.
Robin: I love you more.
Kyle: So I got an e-mail from Eric up in Portland.
Leo: How's your boy doing?
Kyle: Pretty good. He said he figured out how he was accepted for treatment.
Kyle: Yeah. It turns out a Dr. Julian made some phone calls on his behalf. The other Dr. Julian.
Leo: It must have been a typo.
Kyle: Thank you.
Leo: It's no big deal. I just... you deserve to be happy.
Kyle: Oh, hey, wait. What are you-- what are you doing this weekend?
Leo: Nothing...I guess.
Kyle: Want to catch a movie?
Leo: You don't have to do this.
Leo: Suicide watch. I got dumped. I'll be fine.
Kyle: No, I just--I thought... I mean, since we're both dateless, I don't know, we can maybe hang out.
Leo: Ok. All right. Fine. Let's do it. No movies.
Leo: Let's go to a bar. I'll help you pick up a guy.
Kyle: You want to go to a gay bar?
Leo: Why not? I'm an excellent wingman.
Kyle: Right. Or you're just keeping your options open, because you know you can't get a woman to date you.
[Robert puts down his cane, picks up his duffel bag and leaves]
Anna: Oh, sorry I'm late. The traffic was absolutely... Robert?
Patrick: So, you don't think doctors are so bad anymore, do you?
Stone: Can you come visit me?
Patrick: Yeah. I'd love to, Stone.
Epiphany: Hey there, Jagger. I, uh...wanted to give you this. It's my e-mail address. In case you have any medical questions about the little one or, uh...any kind of questions at all, really. Feel free to write me.
Toussaint: Agent Cates, are you being harassed by this woman?
Jagger: Not at all. Miss Johnson and I were saying our goodbyes. You're a lucky man.
Epiphany: He said you were lucky.
Stone: Aunt Robin!
Robin: Hi! Ohh! Do you know how much I'm gonna miss you? That much. [Laughs] What time's your flight?
Jagger: 6 A.M.
Robin: Well, you better get this kid to bed, or you're in for a long flight tomorrow.
Jagger: Hey, buddy. Wasn't there something you wanted to say to Aunt Robin?
Stone: I love you.
Robin: Oh, sweetie. I love you, too. Mwah. Oh, Jagger. You hold on to him tight.
Jagger: I will.
Jagger: I will.
Robin: Oh, I hate goodbyes.
Jagger: This is not a goodbye.
Robin: It better not be.
Jagger: I'm gonna keep that promise about raising our kids together.
Jagger: You ready? Ok, let's go.
You snuck up on me
Here as the words fall from your lips...
Jagger: Thank you.
Watch as it slips through your fingers
oh, time is never on your side when it stands by...
Robin: Where's Dad?
Anna: He's gone.
Robin: What do you mean, he's gone? He was just here.
Anna: Yeah, he left...without me.
Robin: [Sighs] I'm gonna call you a car. You can meet him at JFK.
Anna: No, don't. He'll be fine.
Robin: Mom, he can't do this alone.
Anna: He has to do it alone.
Robin: Oh, Mom. I'm so sorry.
Anna: It's ok. I suppose, um... deep down I kind of knew that it had to be this way. You know? Your father, he... he has to put himself back together. You know, he has to... become Robert Scorpio again. I just...I got... caught up in the moment. You are so lucky... because...you get to spend the rest of your life with the man you love.
Robin: Need some help?
Patrick: No, I think that's it.
Robin: [Sighs] Since when do you smoke cigars?
Patrick: They're for when our baby is born, and they're coming with me. They're hand-rolled.
Robin: [Chuckles] Oh.
Robin: She's at it again with the soccer practice. Can you tell?
Patrick: Mm-hmm. [Chuckles]
Robin: We're gonna be ok, aren't we?
Patrick: Yeah, we are. Ok, well... that's it. No more balancing budgets, no more...disciplining employees.
Robin: You know...ahem. There is...one last thing you can do before ending your tenure.
Patrick: I'm so going to miss having my own office. Come here.
Robin: I love you.
Patrick: I love you, too.
