Medic Wade:
Actually, the trick to falling asleep is trying to stay awake.
Mellish:
How is that, Wade?
Medic Wade:
Well, when my mother was an intern, she used to work late through the night... sleep through the day. So the only time we'd ever get to talk about anything is when she'd get home. So what I... I used to do, I used to lie in my bed and try to stay awake as long as I could, but it never worked 'cause... 'cause the harder I'd try, the faster I'd fall asleep.
Private Reiben:
Yeah well, that wouldn't have mattered none in my house. My ma, she would've come home, shook me awake, chatted me up 'til dawn. I swear that woman was never too tired to talk.
Mellish:
That was probably the only time she could get a word in.

Transcript:
Yeah, what did I say?
Well, actually, the trick to falling asleep
is trying to stay awake.
How is that, Wade?
Well, when my mother was an intern,
she used to work late through the night,
sleep through the day.
So the only time that we ever got
to talk about anything
was when she'd get home.
So what I used to do,
I used to lie in my bed
and try to stay awake as long as I could,
but it never worked
'cause the harder I tried,
the faster I'd fall asleep.
Yeah. Well, that wouldn't have
mattered none in my house.
My ma, she would've come home,
shook me awake,
chatted me up till dawn.
I swear, that woman
was never too tired to talk.
Yeah. That's probably the only time
she could get a word in.
Funny thing is,
sometimes she'd come home early,
and I'd pretend to be asleep.
-Who? Your mum?
-Yeah.
She'd stand in the doorway,
looking at me.
And I'd just keep my eyes shut.
And I knew she just wanted
to find out about my day,
that she came home early
just to talk to me.
And I still wouldn't move.
I'd still pretend to just be asleep.
I don't know why I did that.
We only got a couple of hours.
Shut up and go to sleep.
