Sheldon is MIA at Pete's memorial because he's dealing with a troubled patient back at the office. Nick is man who is supremely unhappy with his life. That's why he's going to end it by killing himself. The distraught man believes this is his only option, as he's prone to having indecent thoughts about little girls. He's afraid he may act on these urges one day. Nick believes he's a monster. He feels the only solution is for him to die.
Sheldon assures his patient that they can work on his impulse control. Nick is stunned to learn that someone actually wants to help him. He didn't expect this. That's why he swallowed a bunch of pills. Sheldon calls 911 when Nick starts convulsing in his office. His patient apologizes for doing this to him. He just didn't want to die alone. Nick pulls through after being admitted to the hospital. Sheldon lets him know that every life is worth saving. He'll back in the morning to help his patient take the next steps.
In random news, Sam believes he and Addison should resort to small talk with each other in an effort to remain friends. Charlotte lets Cooper know that, of course, they'll take care of Lucas should something happen to Violet as long as he's not stoned if/when it happens. As for Violet, she's doing her best to keep it together as another mourning guest cries incessantly in front of her. Addison also tears up when Derek calls to let her know that Mark Sloan is dead. It's a very sad scene. It's the exact opposite of what Pete wanted.
