Awake: That's Not My Penguin

In one reality, Michael deals with a schizophrenic patient who has taken a hospital hostage, and gets advice from Dr. Lee. However, the key to solving the standoff lies in the other reality, where Michael tries to cope with a hallucinatory penguin while looking for a ring with the clue he needs.

Episode Quotes
Emma: They practice progressive parenting. As long as I tell the truth, they trust me.
Rex: They must want to kill me.
Emma: No. They'd be more mad at you if they found out you were giving me this. Processed sugar.
Rex: So you're allowed to sleep over at your boyfriend's, but you can't have Cap'n Crunch?
Emma: Progressive parenting.

Evans: But when you came face-to-face with the larger revelations, you backed down. You retreated into a--a scenario where yous ave the day, you play the hero, win the affection of the wife you've eared losing, and the approval of the therapist who's expressed doubts in you. Just like Gabe, you hold the keys that will tell you what's real and what's not. But for the moment, you're unwilling to turn them.
