Andy's Voiceover
"When the danger's coming at you, you need to make a choice. Where do you focus? How do you proceed? Do you run? Do you hide? Or do you stand your ground and commit? Once you really commit to something, there's no turning back. You got to own your part, show your cards, be honest. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Follow through on your commitments. Try something new. Let go of the past...and dive in to the future."

Vic in this episode

Vic is at work and sick. Travis suggests that she should go home but she doesn't want to because Ripley left one of his shirts at her place and she is not ready to deal with him and their fight. When Sullivan sees how sick she is, he sends home. On her way out, she runs into Ripley, sneezes into his face and then leaves. On her way home, she witnesses an accident and immediately stops to help. It's a couple with a pregnant woman. Vic does her best to work under the worst circumstances: rain, woman trapped inside her car, fire. She manages to deliver the baby just in time for 19 to arrive and take care of the rest. The couple is grateful to her that she saved them. Later, Vic gets checked out by Ripley. He is making sre she is okay. She tells him she doesn't need him to help her because she can do it herself. She is finally at home, sneezing and sick, when Ripley walks in with tea telling her to just call him if she needs anything. She tells him she does and brings up their fight and wants to finish it. She opens up about what she wants and Ripley admits that he doesn't want to let her go before climbing into bed with her, not caring about getting sick, and just holding her.

Quotes from this episode

Vic: [ sneezes]
Travis: That didn't sound like a "where's the fluffy cat" sneeze. It sounded like an "I'm patient zero and need to go home right now" sneeze.
Vic: No, it was just a regular textbook sneeze, sneeze. [ sneezes]
Travis: [ sighs ] You should go.
Vic: No, I don't want to go home. I still have one of Ripley's T-shirts there.
Travis: Okay?
Vic: Oh, God. He accidentally left it, and, oh, my God, it smells so good, but now I don't know what to do with it, and if I go, I have to decide.
Travis: Deciding sounds... important.
Vic: Yeah.
Travis: Yeah. So you should go home to decide.
Vic: Okay, if I give the T-shirt back, we have to talk, and I'm not sure I'm ready for that, because he might say the thing that he didn't want to say before when we fought, and I'm afraid I might not want to hear it. Okay? And I might say something that I don't mean to say, but I don't want to throw the shirt out, either, because did I mention -- did I mention how good it smells?
Travis: You know, letting go can be really hard sometimes.
Vic: Okay.
Travis: You know, a-and the longer that you're in it, the deeper the commitment, and that -- that can be even harder.
Vic: You're saying I should -- I should toss the shirt. Or toss... Or toss Ripley? No, hang on. It was just one fight. Now you think we should break up.
Travis: That's -- That's not what I'm saying.
Vic: Okay, you know what? You talk in circles, Freckles. It's confusing for a woman with a fever. [ sneezes]
Sullivan: Hughes, go home before you infect this entire place.
Vic: What?
Sullivan: Captain's orders.
Travis: Leave a message at the tone. Thanks.
Vic: Montgomery, this is your fault. I'm blaming you. I ran into Ripley on my way out, and I sneezed in his face, and all I wanted to do was yell "T-shirt." I-I don't know. If he and I can't even talk to each other, then maybe you're right. Maybe we should break up. I-I cannot believe you are not answering your phone when I need you to talk me off my fever ledge. You're a jerk. [ sneezes] I hate you.
Emmanuelle: What is it?
Vic: Uh, you are starting to crown.
Emmanuelle: Oh, no.
Vic: So, uh, I'm just gonna get a few things ready, and, uh -- just in case. And in the meantime, I need you to do me a big favor.
Emmanuelle: What's that?
Vic: Don't push.
Vic: Hey, don't push. Don't push.
Josh: How are you gonna do this?
Vic: Don't worry. I've done this before.
Emmanuelle: Oh, really? You've delivered a baby on the side of the road in the rain with the mom-to-be trapped inside a car wreck?
Vic: Every birth is special.
Vic: Uh, you guys got a fridge in your kitchen?
Josh: Yeah. Why?
Vic: Okay, now, I want you both to imagine opening that fridge, got it? It's important. I promise.
Emmanuelle: Okay.
Vic: All right, now, see the carton of eggs? I want you each to take out an egg and imagine holding it in your hand. Okay, it's smooth, right? - You feel that?
Emmanuelle: Yeah.
Vic: Okay, now imagine shaking that egg as hard as you possibly can, and now imagine cracking it open.
Josh: I don't understand. Why -- Why are we doing this?
Vic: Because no matter how hard you shake it, that egg, when you crack it open, how does the yolk look?
Emmanuelle: Like...a yolk?
Vic: Exactly, yeah. It's yellow. It's round. It's intact. It's totally fine, okay? And that baby is strong as an egg yolk and very well protected, so even though your car was rolled and you were bouncing all around, Blueberry was floating, okay? And so I don't want you to worry about Blue. I don't want you to worry about anything. Just -- Just breathe, okay?
Ripley: Your temp's pretty high.
Vic: I feel great. I saved people, and I delivered a baby like a baller.
Ripley: That's the adrenaline talking.
Vic: I'm awesome. [ laughs ]
Ripley: You are.
Vic: I'm still mad at you.
Ripley: Yeah, I know.
Vic: Hey, I can -- Hey, I can treat myself.
Vic: I don't need you.
Ripley: Noted.
Vic: I don't.
Ripley: Okay.
Vic: Okay. Ooh, starting -- I'm starting to feel that fever now.
Vic: [ sneezes] [ coughs ]
Ripley: Just let me know if there's anything else you need, okay?
Vic: Actually, there -- there is. Uh, we had our first fight, but we didn't finish it.
Ripley: Well, we don't have to finish it now, Vic.
Vic: You're wrong, because if an argument's all it takes - to tear us apart ---
Ripley: You're sick. You're sick. You should just rest.
Vic: But I have your shirt!
Ripley: My shirt?
Vic: You left your s-stupid shirt here, okay? And I don't want to give it back, but I swear to God I will if we can't straighten a few things out.
Ripley: Get what things straight?
Vic: I am sick of the secrets. And I'm tired of hiding, but we have to. Unless we don't. I don't -- I don't know. But if we can't even fight and make up, then there's no point in you being nice to me or bringing me tea, because we won't survive, in which case you can just take your nice-smelling shirt and go.
Ripley: I don't want my shirt back. And mad or sick or tired or any other way you feel. I don't want to go. I don't want to let you go.
Vic: What if you get sick? I could be contagious.
Ripley: Oh, you are.
Vic: [ scoffs ]
