ALISON’S OLD BOYFRIEND, GREG PARSONS MD/HEART SURGEON AT THE CLEVELAND CLINIC, IS INCESSANTLY TEXTING AND EMAILING, WANTING TO BECOME ENGAGED.

JASON STROUD MD

HELLO, YOU’RE ALISON - RIGHT?

ALISON

YES I AM, AND YOU MUST BE THE FAMOUS RECRUIT - SAVIOR OF MY DAD DR. JASON STROUD.

JASON STROUD MD

YES, I’M THE NEW GUY ON THE BLOCK - FRESH FROM IOWA. AND CANNOT WAIT TO GO SKIING. IN FACT WITH THIS SNOWFALL BEGINNING THIS AFTERNOON I’M THINKING OF HEADING UP TO THE LIFTS TOMORROW IF NO ONE IS IN LABOR.

ALISON

YOU CAN JOIN OUR GROUP, “DOWNTOWN.” WE’RE ALL HEADING TO THE SLOPES IN A BIG WAY.

JASON STROUD MD

WHAT IS DOWNTOWN? AREN’T WE RURAL? I DON’T GET IT!

ALISON

MOST DON’T. WE ARE A BUNCH OF COLLEGE GRADUATES WHO ALL CAME BACK HOME TO SUMMIT COUNTY. WE WANT THE COLORADO LIFESTYLE. YES, DOWNTOWN IS A KIND OF PARODY NAME, BUT WE ALL SING, DANCE, PLAY MUSIC AND HAVE A GREAT TIME ENJOYING THE ARTS. “DOWNTOWN” CAME ABOUT ONE NIGHT WHEN WE WERE SINGING THE SONG.........THUS DAD NAMED US THAT.....AND IT STUCK.

JASON STROUD MD

COOL, I’D LIKE TO HEAR AND SEE YOUR GROUP - EVEN IF IT IS INFORMAL.

ALISON

WELL TOMORROW IS SATURDAY - DOWNTOWN IS MEETING AT THE BASE OF A-BASIN AT 0700 SHARP FOR BREAKFAST, THEN WE’LL BE THE FIRST ONES ON THE MOUNTAIN AT 0800. FRONT ROW PARKING, WAFFLES, EGGS, AND JUICE WILL BE SERVED. WE’RE SKIING OUR BRAINS OUT TOMORROW. YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME. I’LL BE THERE.

JASON STROUD MD ALISON

AS LONG AS NO ONE IS IN LABOR!

JASON STROUD MD

CORRECT. I NEED TO GET IN HERE TO SEE MRS. WILSON ASAP. I’M ONLY 90 MINUTES BEHIND BECAUSE OF THE BUMP IN SURGERY THIS MORNING. THANKS AGAIN. SEE YOU TOMORROW.

ALISON

HEY DAD - THIS NEW GUY - DR. STROUD....ISN’T HE LIKE ENGAGED?

3


DAD

YES HE IS. I MET HER. SHE’S FROM GRINNELL, IOWA - AND THEY ARE PLANNING A WEDDING THIS NEXT SUMMER IN GRINNELL. SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?

ALISON

OH NOTHING. HE JUST WANTS TO JOIN US SKIING AT A-BASIN TOMORROW.

DAD

THAT’S NICE OF YOU TO INVITE HIM - BUT PLEASE DON’T GET ANY IDEAS. CONSIDER HIM MARRIED. I’M SERIOUS. I NEED THIS GUY FOR MY SANITY AND TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH MOM.

ALISON

I GET IT DAD - I JUST FELT HE WAS A TOUCH CUTE - THAT’S ALL. NOTHING BIG. ARE THERE ANY GALS DUE OVER THE WEEKEND OR SCHEDULED C SECTIONS?

DAD

NONE THAT I CAN RECALL - BUT THAT CAN CHANGE QUICKLY WITH WEATHER FRONTS BRINGING ON LABOR. THIS SNOW DUMP TONIGHT MAY INDEED PROMPT LABOR.

ALISON

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN US FOR A COUPLE HOURS OR SO?

DAD

YOU KNOW - I MAY INDEED DO THAT. I LOVE EARLY SEASON SKIING WHEN WE GET THESE MIRACULOUS FLUFFY MULTIPLE FEET OF SNOW.

ALISON

OH - DON’T LET ME SLOW YOU DOWN. WE’VE GOT A WAITING ROOM FULL OF FOLKS. I’LL WORK UNTIL THE LAST ONE IS IN A ROOM. WE’LL BE OVER AT THE BRECKENRIDGE BREWERY TONIGHT - HAVING OUR GLEE MOMENT WITH “DOWNTOWN.”

DAD

I’D LIKE TO SEE IT AGAIN. SOUNDS LIKE FUN. MANY PATIENTS HAVE ENJOYED DOWNTOWN’S ENTHUSIASM, GREAT VOICES AND DANCING. BUT I FEEL MOM NEEDS ME A LOT MORE TONIGHT. SHE JUST ISN’T STRONG ENOUGH TO GO. BUT WE KEEP HOPING WITH THIS EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT.....WE’LL SEE. I’M BACK IN AN EXAM ROOM. CAN YOU SEND IN SOME SUTURE FOR THIS FACIAL CUT? THIS GUY CLAIMS HE CUT HIMSELF FOLLOWING BEAR TRACKS BEHIND KEYSTONE’S NORTH PEAK.INTERESTING!

JASON STROUD MD

OH MY GOD - WE’VE GOT A WOMAN NEARLY GIVING BIRTH IN THE WAITING ROOM! GET HER BACK HERE ALISON. PUT HER ON A GURNEY OR STRETCHER - WHATEVER YOU HAVE.

DAD

I’LL BE IN TO ASSIST IN A MOMENT. PUT MRS. WILSON’S DAUGHTER UP IN STIRRUPS. THE DELIVERY INSTRUMENTS ARE IN THE BACK CABINET. THE LIDOCAINE IS RIGHT NEXT TO IT - DRAW UP 30 MILLILITERS FOR THE EPISIOTOMY.

ALISON

DAD, I DON’T THINK WE’LL HAVE TIME TO DO ALL THIS. SHE IS DELIVERING RIGHT NOW. DR. STROUD IS CATCHING THE BABY AS WE SPEAK.

JASON STROUD MD

ONE MORE LITTLE PUSH AND WE’RE DONE. WE’VE GOT THE BUTTOCKS OUT. I’M CERTAIN YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE A BREECH DELIVERY OTHERWISE YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A C-SECTION A WEEK AGO. ANYWAY ONE REALLY GOOD PUSH AND WE’LL HAVE THE BABY.

ALISON

WOW! DR. STROUD YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! YOU’RE WHAT FRISCO, COLORADO NEEDS. A REALLY GOOD DOC TO COMPLEMENT MY DAD.

DAD

I’LL SECOND THAT. GREAT JOB JASON. FEW PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY ARE DELIVERING BREECH BABIES THESE DAYS. SHE MUST HAVE FLIPPED AROUND THIS PAST WEEK. HER ULTRASOUND FROM 4 DAYS AGO SHOWED A NORMAL VERTEX OR HEAD IN PELVIS CONDITION.

JASON STROUD MD

THANKS. THE BABY LOOKS GREAT ALSO. MOM AND THE FAMILY ARE HAPPY. EVERYTHING IS COOL.

ALISON

I’LL SAY SO. IT IS COOL GIVING BIRTH LIKE THIS. OUR WAITING ROOM IS NOW COOL WITH US BEING BEHIND. IN FACT ONE GAL SAID - I’LL BE LAST IF WE’RE HAVING A BABY.

JASON STROUD MD

THAT’S THE FUN THING ABOUT FAMILY PRACTICE - THE ENTIRE SPECTRUM OF PATIENTS - FROM CRADLE TO DEATH IS OUR MISSION. THAT IS REALLY GREAT. I’M GLAD I CHOSE THIS SPECIALTY INSTEAD OF NEPHROLOGY - WHERE I PERFORM AND PRACTICE VIRTUALLY THE SAME THING DAILY.

ALISON

OH - WE’VE GOT ANOTHER GAL IN LABOR IN THE WAITING ROOM.......JUST KIDDING. WE’LL SEE YOU TONIGHT AT THE BRECKENRIDGE BREWERY. HAVE SOME FUN.

JASON STROUD MD

I’LL BE THERE AROUND 8. I WON’T FINISH HERE UNTIL SEVENISH. PERFECT.

ALISON

FADE OUT: FADE IN: INT. SCENE IS BRECKENRIDGE BREWERY WITH “DOWNTOWN” PLAYING ON STAGE - SINGING AND DANCING ALL TYPES OF MUSIC.

5


JASON STROUD MD

HEY - JUST ARRIVED. DOWNTOWN SOUNDS GREAT. YOUR GROUP DOES IT ALL - FROM INSTRUMENTALS TO A CAPPELLA TO ORIGINAL MUSIC. YOU ALL PLAY INSTRUMENTS, DANCE, SING AND ENJOY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

ALISON

OH - WE’RE JUST HAVING A BIT OF FUN BEFORE WE ARE FORCED TO BE REAL ADULTS - YOU KNOW: MARRIAGE/NO SLEEP AND DIAPERS/REAL JOBS/MORTGAGES - YOU GET THE PICTURE.

JASON STROUD MD

OH I FULLY SUPPORT WHAT YOU’RE DOING - YOU’RE A PARENT AND THEN TRANSITION INTO A GRAND PARENT AND THEN YOU DIE.

ALISON

RIGHT - JAMIE IS THE DIRECTOR AND LEAD ACTOR FOR THE BRECKENRIDGE THEATER. KELLY IS THE SKY SOX ANNOUNCER DOWN IN THE SPRINGS. WE ALL GREW UP TOGETHER, PLAYED A BUNCH OF SPORTS AND MUSIC TOGETHER. NOW WE’RE ALL FINISHED WITH SCHOOL AND ENJOYING LIFE IN THE MOUNTAINS. NEVER A DULL MOMENT - NOT EVEN IN DAD’S FAMILY PRACTICE CLINIC.

JASON STROUD MD

THAT WAS SOME FIRST DAY. I WAS TELLING LINDSAY...... WHO’S THAT?

ALISON JASON STROUD MD

LINDSAY IS BACK IN IOWA FINISHING UP HER PHD THESIS. WE’RE ENGAGED.

ALISON

WELL CONGRATULATIONS. DAD NEVER SAID MUCH OF ANYTHING ABOUT THAT. BUT HE’S A GUY - THEY MISS THE GOOD STUFF.

JASON STROUD MD

OH IT JUST HAPPENED BEFORE I MOVED OUT. EXCEPT LINDSAY ISN’T TOO EXCITED ABOUT LIVING IN A SMALL MOUNTAIN TOWN. LINDSAY IS FROM CHICAGO.

ALISON

MANY GALS DON’T LIKE THE MOUNTAIN LIFE. YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE OUTDOORS, COZY RELATIONSHIPS, GRUFF GUYS, AND REALIZE WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

JASON STROUD MD

LINDSAY WOULD TAKE A WESTERN CHICAGO SUBURB, MICHIGAN AVENUE SHOPPING, AND THE CUBS IN A HEARTBEAT.

ALISON

WELL TELL LINDSAY - DENVER IS ONLY AN HOUR AWAY. WE HAVE THE ROCKIES, NUGGETS, AND BRONCOS. THERE IS GREAT THEATER IN DENVER AND RIGHT HERE IN SUMMIT COUNTY - WITH BOTH DILLON AND BRECKENRIDGE THEATERS HAVING MANY GREAT ACTORS AND PLAY-

6


WRIGHTS. MANY GREAT ARTISTS SUMMER HERE AND PERFORM AT SUMMIT THEATERS.

JASON STROUD MD

I DON’T THINK ALL OF THAT WOULD CUSHION HER. I FEEL IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME. ALL GUYS LOVE COLORADO. GIRLS ARE USUALLY IFFY.

ALISON

UNLESS THEY ARE A GUY GIRL LIKE ME - A REAL MOUNTAIN TOMBOY. MAYBE SHE’LL CHANGE INTO WHAT I BECAME?

JASON STROUD MD

I DON’T KNOW. I JUST DON’T KNOW.

ALISON

IF THINGS DON’T WORK OUT....I’M AROUND. OH DAM.....I DIDN’T JUST SAY THAT....I’M SORRY. I’M HEADING BACK TO THE STAGE. WE’RE ON A 70S THEME HERE TONIGHT. I’LL SEE YOU LATER.

JASON STROUD MD

OK, I THINK I’LL HAVE ONE OF THOSE ALES AT THE BREWERY - LOOKS MIGHTY GOOD. BUT ONLY ONE - I DON’T HAVE A DESIGNATED DRIVER AND I DON’T DRINK MUCH EITHER.

ALISON

NEITHER DO I. I JUST ENJOY LIFE. “DOWNTOWN” IS HEADING OVER TO A-BASIN TOMORROW. MY DAD MAY COME. GET THE SUMMIT PASS! WE’LL SEE YOU THERE.

JASON STROUD MD

YES - IF NO ONE IS IN LABOR.

FADE OUT: FADE IN: EXT. DOWNTOWN INCLUDING ALISON SIZEMORE IS RIDING UP THE NORWAY LIFT AT A-BASIN AFTER A GREAT TAILGATE BREAKFAST. THE DOWNTOWN GROUP BEGINS TO SING A CAPPELLA AND THE ENTIRE RESORT STOPS AT THE TOP TO ENJOY IT. AFTER A FEW MINUTES THEY HEAD OFF BOARDING AND SKIING. JASON STROUD HAS JOINED THEM AND DOWNTOWN IMMEDIATELY DISCOVERS HE’S A NATURAL SINGER/DANCER/ARTIST.

ALISON

I CAN’T GET OVER HOW BEAUTIFUL THE MOUNTAINS ARE IN THE FALL. THIS ONGOING DUMP MAY BE A COUPLE OF FEET. AND JASON - WHERE ON EARTH DID YOU GET THAT VOICE AND THE DANCE MOVES? YOU FIT RIGHT IN WITH DOWNTOWN.

JASON STROUD MD

I WAS IN THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA GLEE CLUB. THESE GUYS WERE GREAT; WE TRAVELED CONSIDERABLY, AND IT WAS THE MOST FUN I’D HAD WHILE ENDURING MY FAMILY PRACTICE RESIDENCY.

7


ALISON

WELL THAT’S COOL. YOU’RE ALSO NOT BAD ON SKIS - WHICH ARE BARELY ACCEPTABLE. MOST OF US BOARD, BUT WE ARE NOT PREJUDICED - SKIS ARE OK. YOU’RE ON THE MOUNTAIN.

DAD

HEY I CAUGHT UP. I HEARD YOU WHILE COMING UP THE LIFT. I GUESS THE CELL PHONES AREN’T WORKING THAT WELL TODAY. OUR INTERNET SERVICE IS WORKING GREAT. THE HOSPITAL HAS A WAY OF FINDING US IF THEY REALLY NEED US. THE LODGE JUST SENDS OUT SKI PATROL. I’VE GOT THIS RED SKI COAT ON - WHICH IS UNMISTAKABLE. I’LL GET YOU ONE ALSO.

JASON STROUD MD

THAT’S COOL. I’M LIKING EVERYTHING SO FAR.

ALISON

AND THIS GUY CAN SING AND DANCE DAD. HE’S A NATURAL DOWNTOWN GUY.

DAD

WE’RE ALL CAPABLE ALISON - SOME HAVE A TOUCH MORE TALENT THAN MOST.......

ALISON

NO - YOU AREN’T JOINING US DAD - TOO MUCH OF A CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

DAD

JASON - THINK YOU CAN HANDLE THIS DOUBLE BLACK DIAMOND COMING UP? I’M SURPRISED IT’S OPEN - BUT HERE WE GO.

ALISON

THAT’S COOL DR. STROUD. JUST TAKE YOUR TIME. ANYONE - INCLUDING ME - CAN KILL THEMSELVES ON THIS BUMPY RUN. WE’RE ALMOST THROUGH IT. GREAT JOB FOR A GUY FROM IOWA. REALLY!

JASON STROUD MD

I HAVEN’T SKIED THAT MUCH.....BUT I GET IT. IT’S JUST BALANCE, TIMING ON THE TURNS AND LOVE OF THE MOUNTAIN. THAT WILL GET YOU THROUGH MOST RUNS.

ALISON

I AGREE. JUST LIKE THE BASICS GOT YOU THROUGH THAT BREECH DELIVERY.

DAD

LAST ONE TO THE LIFT IS A ROTTEN YOU KNOW WHAT!

ALISON

NOT BAD JASON - I GUESS I CAN CALL YOU THAT OUT HERE - BUT NOT IN THE OFFICE. THAT WORKS!

JASON STROUD MD


DAD

THESE HIGH SPEED QUAD LIFTS ARE REALLY GREAT. I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WITH THE SLOWNESS AND MULTIPLE STOPS. TOOK FOREVER!

ALISON

THE DIFFERENCE ON A LIFT SUCH AS NORWAY IS AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BUT IT’S STILL COOL TO RIDE UP THOSE OLD 2 PERSON LIFTS AND TALK.

JASON STROUD MD

I’LL TAKE THESE HIGH SPEED QUADS. THIS IS LIKE MELTED BUTTER TO ME. ONE JUST HOPS ON, AND IN A FEW MINUTES YOU’RE FLAT OUT ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.

DAD

JASON, I HAD CHECKED BEFORE I LEFT AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE GAL IN OB TRIAGE - LOOKS LIKE SHE’LL BE SENT HOME. SHE’S 34 WEEKS AND CONTRACTING FAIRLY IRREGULARLY. HER BABY LOOKS GOOD ON THE MONITORS AND THE BLOOD WORK IS EXCELLENT.

JASON STROUD MD

I’LL CHECK IN ON HER ON THE WAY HOME. I’LL MAKE CERTAIN SHE CALLS US IF SHE STARTS FEELING AS IF THE BABY ISN’T MOVING AS MUCH.

DAD

GREAT IDEA - LOOKS LIKE WE’RE ALMOST HERE. SKI TIPS UP.

ALISON

HEY DAD. WE’RE HEADING DOWN THE MONTEZUMA BOWL. ARE YOU UP FOR THIS?

DAD

YES - BUT I’M TIRED AND NEED TO GET HOME TO MOM. EIGHT RUNS IS ENOUGH FOR ME TODAY. A HALF DAY OF SKIING SUITS ME FINE. WE’LL SEE YOU LATER - ENJOY THE POWDER BACK THERE. BYE DAD - SEE YOU IN A COUPLE.

ALISON

JASON STROUD MD

WHERE ARE WE HEADED? IS MONTEZUMA BOWL EXTREME SKIING?

ALISON

RELAX DOC. IT’S FLUFFY - MOSTLY BLUE - AND HAS SOME GREAT SAFE TREE AREAS. I DON’T DO TREES!

JASON STROUD MD

YOU DO NOW! FOLLOW ME.

ALISON

JASON STROUD MD

OK - NOT BAD. WE’RE WORKING THROUGH THIS POWDER. BUT I LIKE IT WITH THESE SMOOTH TRAIL RUNS.

9


ALISON

HEY - THERE’S THE LIFT BACK TO THE TOP RIGHT THERE. YOU DID GREAT. LAST ONE THERE IS A ROTTEN YOU KNOW WHAT.

JASON STROUD MD

I BET YOU ARE SICK OF HEARING THAT FROM DAD.

ALISON

OK WE’RE ON THE LIFT. YOU’RE OK. OH BACK TO THE ROTTEN YOU KNOW WHAT - NO I LOVE IT. IT MEANS MY DAD IS AROUND. WHEN I WAS IN MIDDLEBURY - AND YES, I LOVED IT, THE GREAT EASTERN COLLEGE AND ALL - BUT MY LOVE FOR MY FAMILY OVERRIDES EVERYTHING.

JASON STROUD MD

INCLUDING CHASING BACK TO CLEVELAND WITH THE HEART SURGEON?

ALISON

ABSOLUTELY. IT’S SUMMIT COUNTY OR NOTHING. SORRY - I’M NOT LEAVING MY FAMILY EVER AGAIN. EVER! MY STRONG BELIEF IN GOD AND FAMILY SUPERSEDES EVERYTHING. I LOVED THE HECK OUT OF THIS GUY BUT WE DON’T HAVE HEART OPERATING ROOMS IN SUMMIT COUNTY. I’M NOT MOVING TO DENVER EITHER.

JASON STROUD MD

WOW - MOST GALS WOULD KILL TO MARRY A HEART SURGEON - LIVE IN A BIG CITY - BE FINANCIALLY STABLE - YOU KNOW - THE “GOOD THINGS.”

ALISON

THERE’S NOT ENOUGH MONEY IN THE WORLD TO OVERRIDE WHAT BOARDING THE MOUNTAIN, CATCHING A CUTTHROAT ON THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE OR BEING AT HOME IN FRONT OF A REAL FIRE TALKING TO MOM AND DAD.

JASON STROUD MD

SOUNDS LIKE YOU SOLVE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF SUMMIT COUNTY?

ALISON

YES - FOR INSTANCE “DOWNTOWN” HAS BEEN ASKED TO GO TO HOLLYWOOD, NASHVILLE, AND LONDON. AS A GROUP - WE SAID NO. IT’S OVER. WE ALL LOVE IT HERE - SING AND DANCE FOR FUN AND THE ENJOYMENT OF THE ARTS - WE’LL ALL EVENTUALLY MARRY, HAVE KIDS AND JUST STAY HERE WITH OUR FAMILIES - ENJOYING THE MOUNTAIN LIFE OF SUMMIT COUNTY.

JASON STROUD MD

I NEED TO GET BACK TO THE HOSPITAL TO CHECK THAT 34 WEEKER. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR A GREAT DAY TODAY AND HELP WITH THE CLINIC YESTERDAY.

ALISON

SO LONG - SEE YOU NEXT WEEK - BYE THE WAY - IS IT REALLY THAT SERIOUS BETWEEN LINDSAY AND YOU. OH! DARN IT - I DIDN’T JSUT SAY THAT........

END - COLORADO GIRL V 10
