It will have to be a rerun of a rerun. It has been on twice already
Hopefully with the success of The Sixth Sense, they will play it again, although it re-played the week the movie was released, so I dunno.
I don’t want to sounds like a blubbering baby, but I bawled my eyes out watching this episode, not so much for his character, but because of Ling. I’ll give you a quick over-view if you don’t want to chance that it will be replayed.
WARNING: Ally McBeal stuff most may want to skip.
If you are familiar with this show, you know that Ling is a cold bitch. The little boy got attached to her because she was rude to him. Insulted his bald head as well as other things. He said she made him feel like he wasn’t dying because she wasn’t being phoney sweet to him like everyone else. He also became close to Ally for reasons I won’t go into (you’re welcome).
Anyway. . . .
The two of them were sitting in his room and Ally related a story about her baby sister dying and how she walked outside that day and saw a blimp (we all know that she is quite bizarre). Her mother told her it was a sign from God or God himself or something (I forget) and how it made her feel a lot better.
Ling hears her tell this story.
A bunch of things happen, he wins his case, commercial break, more stuff. . . .
At the end, the boy dies. Ling and Ally are there at the hospital when it happens. Ally begins to cry and Ling coldly fires off to her, “It isn’t like you didn’t know he was going to die.” She then walks out of the hospital but when she gets out of the sight of Ally, she begins to run and starts crying.
Why am I telling you this? Oh well, almost finished, if anyone is still with me here.
Jump to a day or two later. No one knows where Ling is and Ally is out walking. We see Ling hiding hiding behind a corner watching Ally. Ally stops and looks up into the sky. The camera pans and we see what she is looking at - a giant blimp.
The last shot is of Ling smiling and we know she is responsible.
Trust me, the TV version is much better.
Coarse and violent nudity. Occasional language.
