"Ecotone" Last night's episode of Six Feet Under...

To download a free wallpaper from Season 5 of Six Feet Under:
Following Nate's AVM seizure, Maggie follows Nate's ambulance to the hospital. In the emergency waiting room with David, Maggie answers the doctor's questions about Nate's physical and emotional well-being in the moments before he collapsed. Although she doesn't state it explicitly, Maggie reveals that she and Nate had sex earlier in the evening. Claire is dismayed to discover that her new boyfriend Ted is a Republican. The pair is heatedly arguing about politics when Claire gets a phone call with news about Nate's seizure. Ted goes with Claire to the hospital and stays by her side in the waiting room all night, earning her trust.A doctor at the hospital tells the family that Nate was suffering from a new Arteriovenous malformation which ruptured, causing a hemorrhage in his brain. Nate is rushed into the operating room immediately to stop the bleeding, but during the surgery he slips into a coma. Meanwhile, no one in the family is able to reach Ruth because she's camping in the woods with Hiram. Although Ruth isn't in the mood for sex, Hiram is feeling very amorous. When he doesn't want to take no for an answer, Ruth leaves him alone in the tent. The next morning, the two argue and Ruth stomps off into the wilderness by herself. Later, she happens upon a bus filled with Chinese tourists, who give her a ride back to Los AngelesWhile unconscious, Nate dreams that his arm merely fell asleep the night before and there was no seizure. In his alternate, dream life, he and Maggie profess their love for each other, then Nate goes home and calmly asks Brenda for a divorce. When Nate wakes from his coma the family delightedly rallies around him. He has some weakness on his left side but the doctors say that with physical therapy he will likely return to normal. Later, Brenda tells Nate that she knows about his affair with Maggie but she's willing to forgive him. Nate surprises Brenda when he says he's tired of fighting and thinks they should give up struggling to keep their marriage together. With David seated by Nate's hospital bed, the two brothers take a nap and have a shared dream that they're on a surfing trip with Nathaniel, getting stoned in the back of the Deadwagon. When they arrive at the ocean, Nate jumps in the water and encourages his brother to join him but David suddenly becomes nervous about sharks. When David awakens from the dream, he finds that Nate has died.

Memorable Quotes from "Six Feet Under"
Nate: Look, I have to go identify our dead father's body. I'm sorry you're having a bad drug experience, but deal with it.
Claire: Apparently you want a child with an eating disorder.

Nate: Uh, Brenda, why do you have my name tattooed on your ass?

Brenda: The future is just a concept that we use to avoid living today.

Claire: I know stealing a foot is weird. But, hello, living in a house where a foot is available to be stolen is weird.

Aunt Sarah: You know, vodka is for Russians what therapy is for Americans. Brenda: Yeah. Habit-forming and destroys your ability to lead a normal life.

Nate Sr.: Life is wasted on the living.

Brenda: You know what I find interesting? If you lose a spouse, you're called a widow, or a widower. If you're a child and you lose your parents, then you're an orphan. But what's the word to describe a parent who loses a child? I guess that's just too gosh darn awful to even have a name.

Ruth: Claire, are you depressed? Claire: I'm not going to even answer that. Ruth: Well, whatever you're going through, I hope you're not going to blame me

David: Do you have any respect for human life whatsoever? Nate: I have a HUGE respect for human life, I just didn't know they could take a dump when they're dead!
David: [recording an answering machine message] Hi, it's David and Keith, but we can't come to the phone right now because we're too *gay*.

Maggie Sibley: What's wrong? Nate: [Nate breathing heavily] My arm is numb... [slurs] Nate: Numb arm... numb arm... narm!... Narm!
