Trudy: Oh. Doctor-
Trudy, hello! It's so lovely to see you.
Did I know you were in town?
I was at a conference not too far away, so I figured I'd drop in and say hello.
Can I come in?
Oh. Um--yes. Come in, of course come in. Gosh, I'm sorry it's such a mess. I wasn't expecting anyone.
Can I get you something? A beer, or? Coffee?
Sure, Coffee would be welcome.
Just gimme a sec. I'm so sorry-we're out of coffee. I hoped, that is I thought we-
A beer would be fine.
Oh good. Do you want to sit? Well this is such a nice surprise.
I couldn't come so close and not check in on my favorite family, could I. They are home, aren't they-the twins.
The twins? Um yes.
Especially after you missed your appointment a couple weeks ago. And I've been calling.
I'm sorry-we just couldn't....we couldn't get there. I'm so sorry we didn't call
I've been worried.
Doctor Barnes. Wendell...Can I talk to you, just frankly? Just...frankly.
Well weve been having trouble lately. You see, Samantha doesn't seem to be taking to And i wondered if there was anything else we could
What part of things is she not taking to?
The whole being a girl part?
It's a long process, Trudy. Full of ups and downs.
No, I know, I just want to be sure you still feel sure..
Do I feel sure?
I feel...that teenagers act out. That's what teenagers do.
Can I see her? I'd really like to see her now
I don't know.
Okay, let me..I'll just go tell them you're here.
I'll come with you.
No. I mean, that's allright. I'll go. I'm so sorry you came all the way here, and..
Well I'm afraid the twins aren't available right now.
What could thirteen year olds conceivably be doing that would make them unavailable?
Like I said-Im sorry.
You don't want her to see me. You've given up.
That's not it. I tried. I really did. I want her to see you.
Then let me go down there.
I can't let you do that. She's too upset.
All the more reason I should see her. Please.
Doug: I see that. Why?
I was in town, and so I stopped by. I hope that's all right.
well actually. Well actually no. It's not alright.
And why's that? We've never had a problem before.
Oh no? We've never had any problems?
Are you okay, Doug?
Don't call me Doug.
I don't like walking in here and seeing you.
Where is this coming from? Trudy?
Trudy: I um
I saw Samantha just a few months ago. Maybe she was a little blue, but nothing out of bounds for a girl her age.
Doug: Did you know whenever she visits you she spends that night bawling her eyes out? Did you know that?
I don't think it's an unhealthy attachment. I've known her all her life.
Right, she worships you. And it tortures her.
Will you tell me what's happened to Samantha since I saw her?
Trudy: She hasn't left the room. She won't go to school.
What? Why didn't you tell me?
She didn't want me to.
I don't understand.
Doug: She doesn't want an operation, okay?
Well, I know that. But who wants a operation?
Trudy: I think Doug's saying that over the years, we put on a sort of a brave face.
I appreciate your candor, but I am, also, you must remember, a doctor. I've observed Samantha all these years.
Samantha in particular. I think Samantha in particular put on a brave face.
Why would she do that?
Doug: WHy would she do that? Are you really asking?
......Not even her brother, they used to be friends.
It's upsetting for all of us that she's been going through such a rough patch.
Why dont you shut up Trudy?
If you want to take my words completely out of context-
Oh come one, we both know you never really cared about Sam. All you wanted was a doll to play dress u with. To prove your theories with.
No. I care about Samantha. Deeply. Terribly.
Well, I'm her father!
Then act like it!...pay her some attention...To be honest, I'm not sure either of you pays her the kind of attention she needs.
This is hilarious. Isn't this hilarious?
I really think we ought to focus on Samantha and what we can do to help her feel she can go to school again. Can we do that? Can we focus?
Oh, no, we aren't gonna do anything
What does that mean?
It means you aren't gunna have anything to do with Samantha anymore. It means I'd like you to get out of my house.
Please don't do this. Please. Consider Samantha. What would she think if I just....disappeared? It would be a devastating blow. It would shape her. She needs me.
Trudy: Samantha said she won't see you! And I'm at my wits end. I just can't force her to do things anymore. I can't do it.
Samantha said that? That she didn't want to see me? I don't believe it. I don't believe you.
Maybe it didn't work! Did you ever think of that? Oh god maybe it didn't work. O my god. Oh my god.
No, she's going through a rough patch. A rough patch. You'll see. She's gunna be fine. She's gunna be just fine.
Maybe you should just go.
