    Goodnight.

    Friday, September 17 2010

    It's early morning and Bob walks the halls of Memorial, listening to the machines humming. He walks into his office and thinks about how this quiet will end as the day dawns and the lives of the people of Oakdale begin to swarm through the place. He thinks about how he has taken care of many of the town's residents since they were children and then taken care of their children. It's now time for him to walk away. Kim comes in and reminds him he's supposed to be packing. He finds it impossible to believe that he is retiring today.

    Katie and Chris go to Tom and Margo's and wonder if they could be happy living there.

    Susan goes to see Bob in his office and complains about having to work with John again. Kim comes in so Susan makes herself scarce, wishing them well on her way out. Bob didn't know how hard it would be to say goodbye. She says it's just goodnight and time to have fun. When she leaves him alone, he packs his desk. He shuts the light out, says 'goodnight' and leaves. The globe lights up and spins.

    That's A Damn Shame.

    At Al's, Kim continues to worry to Bob about Chris. He says everything points to a steady recovery. She wonders what the lessons are in all of this for her.

    At the hospital, Chris keeps prodding Katie to tell him whose heart he has. She says he doesn't need to know right now. He begs until she tells him. This confuses and upsets him so she explains. Chris starts blaming himself. Bob comes in and his son demands to know how long he would have had to wait for the truth. They tell him the transplant was Reid's idea. Katie and Bob walk out and he tells her that she did the right thing in coming clean to Chris. She returns to Chris and tells him that he better suck up his feelings about this or he might as well be dead. He jokingly asks if Reid's heart will make him eat junk food. She cuddles with him and listens to the heart beat.

    Back at the hospital, Bob tells Chris that the new wing will be named after Reid.

    Where Is That Jerk?

    Wednesday, September 08 2010

    Chris wakes up in his hospital room with his parents around him. John says the surgery was a success. Katie comes in. He thinks he should thank Reid for getting him the heart. "Where is that jerk?" he asks. The family and friends wander into the hall and talk about how they will keep things from Chris. Kim hugs John and thanks him. Margo tells Katie she should get some rest. Then she turns to John and they talk about him. She wonders why he never bothers getting in touch with her.

    Luke goes back to the hospital and Bob and Kim tell him how grateful they are for what Reid did. Kim tells Luke he was really generous to sign the paperwork. Luke asks Bob if Reid ever mentioned his family. He didn't.

    I Wish It Wasn't This.

    Tuesday, September 07 2010

    In the hall, John tells Kim and Bob that they need a new heart for Chris within twenty-four hours or it will be too late. Kim hopes for a miracle.

    Alison, Casey and Luke wander around the hospital. She wishes Luke would tell Bob and Kim what Reid is doing. He walks over to the couple and tells them that Reid has gone to Bay City to try and get the heart. "I wouldn't be surprised if he came back here tonight with that new heart," Luke says. They all go in and tell Chris and Katie. Bob sends his wife off to get something to eat and then talks to Casey and Luke about how important it is not to give up hope. He wants Reid to work as co-chair with Chris. When Luke and Casey drift away, Margo and Tom arrive. Reluctantly, they walk over. Bob realizes something is wrong and they inform him that Reid was hit by a train. Bob sees Luke returning and tries to send him to the cafeteria but Reid is rushed by on a stretcher before he can leave. Bob keeps Luke back and tells him that it's just a matter of time before Reid dies. Luke thinks he's giving up and yells at him to help Reid. He runs off. John walks by and Bob informs him of the accident. John and Bob have no idea why any of this is happening.
