didn't mean to wake you. Go back to sleep."

know, I know. Soon. Doc says in a couple of days.
But right now - you've got a nice hole in your shoulder so
you need to rest here a while, get a little better before
we can take you home."

small hours of the morning, Danny. Everyone's asleep.
You should be too."

could try looking in the mirror."
lucky you're lying in a hospital bed stitched up and doped
up out of your skull."
or what? Have to spank me?"
not giving me any respect, definitely. Using me for
target practice, absolutely."
cheap shots at the colonel."
I know it. But you know the rules. You cross the
line you pay the fine."
You got me. I'll settle up - catch me...catch me later.
Hold the thought. Or...or something...ohhhh....
Mmmmmmm. That feels… that feels nice…"
right. Close your eyes, Danny. Go back to
to. But I can't."

just like we were at home. Put you right out like

As in GO - go. You don't have one of those…

I can get up. Just can't - can't do it - by
it already, did ya?"
caught you, huh?"
yeah. New nurse. Mean one - the one - looks like -
Terminator? Whoa! She scares me, and I don't scare
but you're a push-over."
it up, boy, you're just racking up the infractions.
You're going to have quite a running total by the time
you get out of here. I'm keeping track."
yeah, petrified. Can we - can I get a little action,
here? Are you gonna talk or help me up? Gotta GO."
Listen, you sure about this getting up thing?"
okay, let's just - easy does it, big fella. Let's take
it nice and slow. One foot on the floor. Then the
other one. That's the way. Now, give me your arm.
That's it, hold on to me. I'll just…standing up now,
here we go. Whoa! Easy, Danny! Don't worry.
I got you."
I know. Thanks. Wow. Floor's cold."
lean on me now, and let's just take this one step at a
time. Wait - lemme - just get this…here we go. We'll
just roll this bad boy right along with us, shall we?
Take it easy, Danny, no rush."
for you to say. My back teeth are swimming."
making good time, here. Doin' fine. Not much
farther now. You okay? How's the shoulder?
Not hurting you, am I? We can go slower."
fine and no we can't! Just - just get me there, Jack.
Danny, okay. Whatever you need. You just say the
word. 'Round the corner and here we go! The end is
mind making cracks about my ass just get me - "
even crossed my mind. Even though it's hard to miss.
What with the gown and all. Okay, okay, I've got you.
Steady now. You're gonna fall in, weaving around like
that. You gonna be able to do this? Here let me help
do it! Geeez! Just hold me up. Let me worry
about - holding it."
think you should be worrying about - hey, careful where you
point that thing! What's the big deal, anyway?
Never seemed to mind me holding it before."
different! I'm taking a leak, Jack. Trying to, anyway.
Whoa! Little dizzy."
the aim there, pal, going a bit wide. Ah, there we go,
a memory I'm going to cherish. A for sure 'dear diary'
'bout done there?"
huh. You 'bout done groping my ass?"
- keeping it warm. You look cold. What with it
hanging out and all."
stupid gown. It is a bit breezy. Wait - there's no
one else around here, right?"
your worryin'. Jack wouldn't hang you out to dry.
No witnesses. Your exposed rear flank is just between you
and me, and I'm behind your behind all the way."
up the rear? God, don't make me laugh, I won't make it
back to the bed."
made it here, we'll make it back. I'll get you there,
bare ass and all. What's more, I might be able to help
you out with your current coverage problem."
You brought them? It's okay?"
and it's okay. I checked. How 'bout we get you back into
- good idea. Sorry. Thanks for the help. Hope
I'm not - don't want to be a bother. Not too heavy or
at all. Just a few more steps. Almost there."
sitting down. Sitting is good. Very good. Well,
that was…interesting. But I think I'll stay right here
for a while. No more walks tonight. Jack? Where -
where are you going?"
closing the curtain. Just in case. All right,
let's get you into these things."
You did bring them!"
you. Here let me help you with that - what's so
usually the other way around. You're trying to get these
off me - not on."
the irony of the situation hasn't exactly escaped me.
Other leg - in we go. Now just - lean on me a bit, lift
your butt. There! Bottom half jammy-fied. Ah well,
not our usual routine, but we still make a pretty good
sure do. Thanks. Feel a lot better now."
now, careful with the arm. That didn't hurt, did it?
Never mind the buttons, you're fine. You're looking a
little pale, Danny. I want you to lie back down now.
I think you've had enough excitement for one evening."
think you're right. I'll just - feeling a little tired.
Rest now. Rest is good. Thanks for the jammies."
pleasure. You lie back, now. Get yourself set there.
I'll - let me - there you go, all covered up. Don't want
you catching cold. Tuck it around there. Perfect. All
nice and cosy. Comfy now?"
Oh yeah…that feels so nice. Your hand…like…just like
that… You're really good at this."

you did. You were the best. I'm really sorry I didn't
get to see you be Charlie's Dad. That's a part of you
I'll never see, now - never get to know. Sorry. Sorry
know. Me too. But he's still here, inside me. Some
things never truly leave you, no matter what happens. And you
get to see what he made me. You're the only one who ever
You know the rules. No kissing on the base."
There's no one else around. Besides, it's just on the
forehead. What are you going to do, spank me?"
the rules…owe me…owe me one…"
Danny. I owe you more than that. I'll be ready and
waiting whenever you want to collect. That's a promise.
You go to sleep now, buddy."
glad you're here. Out there - before you got me back...I
was - I was scared. Didn't even see it coming… and
then... it hurt - it hurt - scared me...."
know, but you didn't let it stop you. You kept on going,
kept on dialling. The rest of us were pinned down and
you were the only one who could get to the DHD. You
saved all of us. When that gate came on and those creeps
all high-tailed it… Scared the crap out of them.
I'm really proud of you, Danny. So proud."
More than good."
too. It's okay to be scared. Happens to me all the

all right, you hang onto my hand if you want to. You
hold it for as long as you like. I'm not going anywhere.
It's okay to go to sleep. I'll be right here."
sleep, Danny. God, thank God you're safe. Don't
know what I'd do if…I love you, Danny."
