Adam is making a larger point about “do you want to do this activity” and the idea of doing things for those you care about vs. strangers.
Adam explains the conversation he had with Chris about nobody wanting to go to the hospital and how you can reflect on the time that person spent focused on you to then use that to motivate you to visit him in the hospital.

Adam is now breaking down motivation and brings up his dad’s confusion about his sister not visiting him in the hospital.
Adam shares his 2nd date theorem and drew assists him with it after his own insightful “I’m this now, see me for who I am now” take on parenting and the evolution of a human being.
“Just like the catheter, internalize!” – Adam with a self-satisfied sniff worthy comment about people making their own future hospital beds with their friends and family and how they treated them when it counted most.
