QUOTES
Unknown patient
Martin
Is that it?
Well, if you'd taken the trouble to read what it said on the packet, then you wouldn't have had to call me twice in a day,
would you?  
Martin
To dog:  Get out of my life.

You have to speak up and speak clearly!
Yeah.  There's no need to shout.
Is there any purpose to this call?
Pratt.
What?
Phil Pratt.  Can you go and see his wife?
Martin
Mrs Pratt
Martin
You must be Mrs Pratt.
Hello Doctor.  It's good of you to come.
Yes, it is.
Martin
Aunt Joan
Martin
You'd think a home visit at very short notice might at least qualify for a thank you, but oh, no.  Hmm?  Auntie Joan?
I'm sorry really.  Just give me a minute.
Yeah.  Take your time.  
Martin
It's very sad, but life goes on.  Not for Mrs Pratt, obviously.  
Martin
Call the receptionist…if she's not too busy.  I'm sorry Pauline.  Perhaps you'd like to use my consulting room to
entertain your friends.

This is Ross.
Yes, we've met.
He's a helmsman.
Congratulations.
I'm now one of the senior guys on the lifeboat.
I'll bear that in mind.
Ross

Martin
You're not in quite yet Paul, though.  Uh, Doc's gotta do your medical first.  Can’t confirm it till we know she's fully fit.  
She looks pretty fit to me.
I'll make a note of that.

Louisa
Oh, While you're here Martin, I was wondering.  Could you take a look at Tricia's hands?  Sorry.  This is Tricia Soames,
our new member of staff.  My first recruit.  I poached her from Truro Junior.  Padstow Community wanted her, but I got in
first.
Really?
Hello.
Um, I - I noticed that...that Tricia's hands...Tricia's hands are...are looking very sore.  And then I thought...
Let me make a couple of things clear for you, Miss Glasson.  One, a small fishbone is not an emergency.  Two, if a
member of your staff wants medical attention, she should come to my surgery.  Now, unless any more of your pupils
wish to vomit all over me, I'll be off.  Miss Soames.
I'm sorry. He's not normally that rude.  Actually, he IS normally that rude, but he also happens to be a very good
doctor.  So, I - I should make that appointment.  
Pauline
Bert
Al.  Ross Says I don't run fast enough.  Can you help me train or something?  I'll buy you a pint every night for a week.  
I'll help you.
Tricia
Martin
Miss Glasson was keen for me to see you.
Did she explain that I also have something called "surgery hours" which finished some time ago?  Good evening.
Martin
Where's Pauline?  I see.  Can anyone tell me who's next?  
Bert
Patient
Bert
Maybe you should see Lilla next.
I'll go next.  Two minutes, three at the most.
Tempting to get her out of the way Doc.

I didn't have any lunch.  Maybe that's why I fainted.
Yes, that would be a perfectly reasonable explanation.  Unless you've got any more emergencies for me, I'll be on my
way.
I hope you're not suggesting I called you without good reason.
Oh, no.
Could you look at Tricia's hands please?
Yeah, when she comes to the surgery.
She went to your surgery last night, and you refused to see her.
I was only too happy to make her an appointment, but she didn't want to.
But, since you're here...
Do you wear rubber gloves when you do the washing up?
No.
I think you should.  Now...
Tricia, I'm so sorry.

If you've got a problem with me, don't take it out on Tricia.
I don't know what you mean.
I can't keep apologizing for your behaviours.
Then don't.  I didn't ask you to.
Why do you have to upset everyone?  When you're with your patients, why can't you make an effort?  Just smile.  Try
some small talk.  Have a laugh.
Sick people don't want to laugh.  They want a doctor who knows what he's doing.
They want a bedside manner.
A bedside manner can't cure you.
It makes them feel better.
Oh, it can diagnose an illness, can it?  Write a prescription?
You know what I mean.  Please, for once, just agree with me.  You DO know what I'm trying to say.
Actually, I find you hard to understand at the best of times.  Very little of what you say, or - or do makes much sense to
me.
What are we talking about?  Are we..are we talking about...What?  What are we talking about?
I'm not quite sure.
Don't you think we should sit down with a drink and stop having these stupid, bad-tempered mini-rows?  And let's sort
out what we really think about each other.
Yeah.  All right.
Well, well not now, cause I - I'm busy tonight.
You've got a prayer meeting at the chapel, have you?
I'm not seeing Dan..I'm...I'm just busy, right?  But tomorrow night I'm gonna be at the Crab at 8:00.  So you can join me
or don't join me.  It's up to you.
All right.  I'll be there.
Really?
Yes.

You locked yourself out?

You keep doing that.  Looking at your watch.
No I don't.
I know what's stopping you from going inside.
You don't.  I'm just…thinking.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
What?
You never wondered what's wrong with you?  Never looked up your symptoms on the  internet or read about OCD?
There's nothing wrong with me.

Find out what happened to Helen and tell that deranged husband of hers.  This isn't gonna stop until he knows you
didn't make a mistake.
I didn't make a mistake.
I know you didn't, but he's unhinged.
What about?
Well, she thought he was having an affair.  And he hit her once.
You don't think he'd hit you, do you?
I'm not afraid of Mr Pratt, gun or no gun.
He's got a gun?
Well, he's a farmer.  Of course he's got a gun.
Oh, I'm not happy about this.  Auntie Joan, you're living next door to a man who beat his wife, slashed your tires and
owns a gun.
Where are you going?
I'm going to see him.
Well, don't do anything stupid.
I'm going to talk to him.
Oh, God.

I-If I hold that, you can hold this Martin.
No.  I don't want to touch the...Got to put this in anyway and check his blood pressure.
What if I press on the wound and Joan phones the ambulance?
Why don't I check on the bloody ambulance?

Yeah, well, I was trying to make Al jealous.  Sorry.  I was only trying to use you like you try and use every girl in the

Oh, well.  Thi - This isn't a good time.  I have to be somewhere.
You can't leave me.
Well I can.
I can't go out there again till half past.  I can't go in or out of a building unless it's on the hour or the half hour.  I know I
sound mad.
Yes, you do.  Which is to be expected with OCD, which you definitely have.  Let me see your hands.  And is this just
from scrubbing them?
Sometimes only at home.  When it gets really bad, they notice at work.  That's why I keep changing schools.  So, how
can you help me?
Umm...bu...
Danny
Louisa
Hi there.  Ah.  Waiting for someone?
No.  Not anymore.

Literary Reference - An American country music song recorded by many different individuals and groups, but
most notably Willie Nelson.  The lyrics are about a person who has been neglecting his partner but insists that the
partner has always been on his mind.  The singer also pleads with the partner to give him one more chance.
Connecting the Episode Title to the Storylines
The storylines in this episode don't really tie in too well to the song, but essentially just into just the title, "Always on
My Mind."
Phil's Pratt's deceased wife is on his mind because he feels guilty about her death.  It seems that he told her that
he was having an affair with a man shortly before she had the stroke that killed her.  But it doesn't seem like he
had any intention of breaking off the affair and since her death he seems to be spending quite a bit of time with
Tony.  She is on his mind because he thinks that her stroke might have been caused by the shock of his
confession.
Tricia's OCD is on her mind all the time.  She always has to be aware of the time because her mind is telling her
that she can only go in or out of a building on the hour or half hour.  She also has a whole set of routines of things
she can't or must do, so there is probably a lot on her mind at all times.
Pauline is on Al's mind because, while she is working to get on the lifeboat crew, she is using all the time spent with
Ross to make Al jealous.  Al tells Pauline that he isn't jealous, but you can see that it is bothering him.  
Unfortunately, that just spurs Pauline even more to get a reaction from Al.
Julie Mitchell is on Mark Mylow's mind because he developed a crush on her the moment he met her.  
Martin & Louisa's relationship actually fit best with the lyrics to the song.  Martin is in a foul mood because he has
been seeing Louisa constantly with Danny over several episodes. In this episode he walks by them sitting on a
bench with Danny arm around her back.  When he is called to the school a couple of times for emergencies, he is
very rude to Louisa.  They finally have it out in the schoolyard and decide that they need to sit down together and
try to figure out what they mean to each other.  So it seems that they have both been on each other's minds.  
Louisa has been neglecting moving on their relationship because she has been dallying with Danny, but it seems
that they both want another chance to try to explore their feelings.
MARTIN & LOUISA
Louisa and Danny are sitting on a bench just up the road from the surgery.  Martin walks by and scowls as he sees them.  Martin,
"Afternoon."  Louisa, "Hello."  Danny, "Afternoon."  Martin doesn't slow his stride and Louisa watches his back as he continues down the hill.
Martin has been called to the school on an emergency to remove a small fishbone from the throat of a student.  After he finishes and the
student throws up all over the front of his suit, Louisa asks Martin if he would look at Tricia's (new teacher's) severly chapped hands.  
Martin's mood has gotten progressively worse while he's been there.  It seems to have started with his annoyance with Louisa at all the time
he has seen her spending with Danny, and worsened because the fishbone was tiny and he doesn't feel it was an emergency.  The student
throwing up on him and Louisa asking him to look at Tricia's hands are the last straws.  He squares up to Louisa and starts by saying, "Let
me make a couple of things clear for you Miss Glasson..."  By the time he finishes, Louisa's annoyance level is approaching Martin's.  After
he leaves, she apologises to Tricia.
Martin has received another emergency call to the school.  This time it is because Tricia has fainted, but he quickly determines that it was
because she did not eat any lunch.  Once again, he is really annoyed at Louisa.  When she asks again that he look at Tricia's hands, he
once again tells her that he would be happy to if she would make an appointment at the surgery.  When Louisa presses him, he asks Tricia if
she uses gloves for washing up.  When she says that she doesn't, he simply says, "I think you should."  He turns on his heel and walks out
the door.
Louisa follows Martin out to the schoolyard after this latest battle.  She tells him that she can't keep apologising for his behaviour and he tells
her that she shouldn't - he didn't ask her to.  She tries to get him to understand that his patients want a good bedside manner, but he is
dismissive of this idea.  He feels that the patients want a competent doctor rather than a good bedside manner.  Louisa pleads with him to try
and understand what she is saying.  Martin counters that little that she says or does makes much sense to him.  All of a sudden, this
conversation seems to have moved from his public demeanor to their personal relationship and they both become tongue tied.  Louisa
suggests that maybe they should sit down, have a drink, and try to figure out how they feel about each other and Martin immediately accepts
her suggestion.  She tells him that she can't right now because she has plans.  Martin sneers, asking if she is going to a prayer meeting?  
Louisa starts to say that she isn't seeing Danny, but she stops mid-sentence and simply says that she is busy, but will meet him tomorrow
evening.  She angrily tells him that she will be there and he can join her or not join her.  As she turns to walk away he says that he will be
there.  She turns back to him in surprise and says, "Really?"  He says, "Yes." and turns and walks away.
Martin has just arrived home from attending to Phil Pratt's injury when Louisa walks past the surgery.  She stops and says she heard about
Phil.  She seems to be hinting about the gossip regarding the outing of his sexuality, but it goes right over his head and he just thinks she is
talking about the accident and tells her that Phil should fully recover.  He tells her he will see her in the pub later and Louisa continues on her
way with Martin gazing at her as she walks down the hill.  He looks like he has a slight smile as he turns to go into the surgery.
Martin is closing up the surgery for the night.  He has changed into a different suit, shirt and tie.  As he is checking his teeth in a mirror, the
surgery door opens and Tricia walks in.  She tells him that she does have OCD and wants his help.  He tries to explain that he can't see her
now because he has to be somewhere.  She tells him that she won't be able to leave the building for another 30 minutes because of her
disorder.  Martin looks dismayed, but knows that he she needs his help.  In the meantime, Louisa is in the pub and takes a bottle of wine and
two goblets out to a table on the balcony.  Back to Martin in his consulting room listening to Tricia's recitation of her symptoms while he
checks his watch with a look of resignation.  Then back to Louisa who has been watching and waiting for him.  Danny walks out onto the
balcony and asks if she is waiting for someone.  She looks at the two goblets, sets one aside, smiles at Danny, and says, "Not anymore."

Original Broadcast:  Dec 08, 2005

EASTER EGGS - When Ross comes to the surgery to tell Pauline she is on the lifeboat crew, Martin comes into the waiting room and
recognizes him.  He brags that he is a senior member of the crew and puts his hand up to his chest.  If you pay close attention, it looks like
seeing Martin has reminded him of their first meeting - when Ross was diagnosed with gynecomastia.  The same thing happens in S2E9 when
Martin runs into Colonel Spencer on the coast path.

FOOD - When Martin walks by Louisa and Danny sitting on a bench, Danny is eating a sandwich.

FOOD - Aunt Joan arrives with leek and potato soup right after Helen Pratt has died.

FOOD - Bert is waiting to see the doc about his bad back and reached for a cookie from Pauline's desk.

HAEMOPHOBIA - While treating Phil Pratt when the piece of farm machinery pierced his leg, Martin gagged five different times. (He usually
only does this once and then just gets on with it.)

INTERRUPTIONS - Martin is just about to leave to meet Louisa at the pub when Trisha walks in, finally ready to admit her OCD.  While Martin
tries to explain that he has to be somewhere, he recognizes that she needs his help now.  (But he could have called Louisa!)

LOOK BACK - After Martin passes Louisa and Danny sitting on the bench, she watches his back as he continues down the hill.

LOOK BACK - Louisa watches Martin leaving the school after he gives her a lecture about wasting his time with non-emergencies.

LOOK BACK - As Martin is getting home from treating Phil Pratt, Louisa walks by.  She stops and inquires about Phil and then they confirm
that they will be meeting in the pub that evening.  Martin watches her walk down the hill and then has a hint of a smile as he turns to go into the
surgery.

LOUISA STANDING UP - After Martin is very rude to Louisa and Tricia when he has come to the school to remove a small fishbone from a
student's throat, Louisa tells Tricia that she is sorry, that he isn't normally that rude.  But then she says that actually he IS normally that rude,
but that he also happens to be a very good doctor.

NICE MARTIN - After being very rude to Louisa and Tricia (although it was really meant for Louisa), he takes his time to be helpful to Tricia on
two occasions.  The first time is when he sees her trying to enter her cottage.  He stops and walks up to her and gently tells her that he thinks
her problem is OCD.  

NICE MARTIN - Martin is just about to leave to meet Louisa at the pub when Trisha walks in, finally ready to admit her OCD.  While Martin tries
to explain that he has to be somewhere, he recognizes that she needs his help now and misses out on the evening with Louisa.

RADIOS - There is a radio on the windowsill behind Pauline's desk.

RUDE MARTIN - When Martin is called to the school to retrieve a small fishbone from a student's throat, he is obviously peeved at Louisa
because he has seen her with Danny so much lately.  He gives her a lecture about wasting his time, starting with, "Let me make a couple of
things clear for you Miss Glasson..."

RUDE MARTIN - When he is back at the school for Tricia's fainting spell (the result of no lunch), he is really peeved again and is very rude
and dismissive when Louisa asks him once again to look at Tricia's hands.
