Michaela gets drilled by psychiatrist
Scene shifts to a psychiatrist’s office.
DR. BORTEL: I’ve been through your file. Seems like your world turned upside down five months before you got on that plane.
MICHAELA: My friend died. We had a car accident.
DR. BORTEL: You were the driver and you’d been drinking? That would weigh heavily on anyone.
MICHAELA: Well, there was an investigation, and I was exonerated.
DR. BORTEL: But still put on desk duty.
Michaela wants her old job back
MICHAELA: Yeah, I couldn’t drive. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t want to. What-What exactly is the point here?
DR. BORTEL: I’m trying to help you process the magnitude of changes in your life in the last five years.
MICHAELA: Last four days.
DR. BORTEL: That’s my point. To absorb so much change in so little time. You don’t have to hide your emotions. I’m on your side.
MICHAELA: Due respect, but you’re not. Look, I know the drill here. I break down and you mark me unfit for duty, but I am okay. So how about letting me get back to the one thing that I do have left, my job? [INHALES DEEPLY]
DR. BORTEL: [PEN SCRIBBLES] I’ll need to see you again.
