List Chapter or Page:
Pat suggests a meeting with Nikki at the place they got engaged, and despite no reply he slips away from his family on Christmas Day to meet her. Nikki is not there; Tiffany is, and admits she has forged Nikki's letters and that she had been trying to help Pat move on and gain closure with his marriage because she, Tiffany, is in love with Pat.
Pat is furious that the last two months of correspondence were a lie. In shock Pat runs into an unfamiliar neighborhood and is assaulted.
By chance, he encounters Danny, his friend from the Baltimore mental health facility. Danny helps Pat get to a hospital and reunite with his family. Pat still does not recall how or why he was separated from his wife, and only when he watches the wedding video, which his mother had hidden, do the memories eventually return — with the realization that he and Nikki will never be reunited.
After several weeks, Pat recovers from his injuries, and after receiving a letter, agrees to meet Tiffany. Pat explains that he asked his brother Jake to drive him to see Nikki, and observed her from afar, finally realizing she has a new family and is happy, and thus accepts it as the ending of the movie of his life.
Tiffany gives Pat a cloud chart as a belated birthday present and they lie on the ground and watch the clouds together. Pat pulls Tiffany close and she tells him that she needs him.
I dont want to stay in the bad place, where no one believes in silver linings or love or happy endings, and where everyone tells me Nikki will not like my new body, nor will she even want to see me when apart time is over. But I am also afraid the people from my old life will not be as enthusiastic as I am now trying to be. Even still, I need to get away from the depressing doctors and the ugly nurses — with their endless pills in paper cups — if I am ever going to get my thoughts straight, and since Mom will be much easier to trick than medical professionals, I jump up, find my feet, and say, "I'll come live with you just until apart time is over.
The Silver Linings Playbook: A Novel
I say goodbye to my roommate, Jackie, who just stares at me from his bed like he always does, drool running down off his chin like clear honey. Poor Jackie, with his random tufts of hair, oddly shaped head, and flabby body. What woman would ever love him? He blinks at me. I take this for goodbye and good luck, so I blink back with both eyes — meaning double good luck to you, Jackie, which I figure he understands, since he grunts and bangs his shoulder against his ear like he does whenever he gets what you are trying to tell him.
My other friends are in music relaxation class, which I do not attend, because smooth jazz makes me angry sometimes.
Thinking maybe I should say goodbye to the men who had my back while I was locked up, I look into the music-room window and see my boys sitting Indian style on purple yoga mats, their elbows resting on their knees, their palms pressed together in front of their faces, and their eyes closed. Luckily, the glass of the window blocks the smooth jazz from entering my ears. My friends look really relaxed — at peace — so I decide not to interrupt their session.
I hate goodbyes. In his white coat, Dr. Timbers is waiting for me when I meet my mother in the lobby, where three palm trees lurk among the couches and lounge chairs, as if the bad place were in Orlando and not Baltimore. Enjoy your life, he says to me — wearing that sober look of his — and shakes my hand.
Just as soon as apart time ends, I say, and his face falls as if I said I was going to kill his wife, Natalie, and their three blond-haired daughters — Kristen, Jenny, and Becky — because thats just how much he does not believe in silver linings, making it his business to preach apathy and negativity and pessimism unceasingly.
But I make sure he understands that he has failed to infect me with his depressing life philosophies — and that I will be looking forward to the end of apart time. I say, Picture me rollin to Dr. Timbers, which is exactly what Danny — my only black friend in the bad place — told me he was going to say to Dr.
Timbers when Danny got out. I sort of feel bad about stealing Dannys exit line, but it works; I know because Dr. Timbers squints as if I had punched him in the gut. As my mother drives me out of Maryland and through Delaware, past all those fast-food places and strip malls, she explains that Dr. Timbers did not want to let me out of the bad place, but with the help of a few lawyers and her girlfriends therapist — the man who will be my new therapist--she waged a legal battle and managed to convince some judge that she could care for me at home, so I thank her.
On the Delaware Memorial Bridge, she looks over at me and asks if I want to get better, saying, You do want to get better, Pat. I nod. I say, I do. And then we are back in New Jersey, flying up As we drive down Haddon Avenue into the heart of Collingswood — my hometown — I see that the main drag looks different.
So many new boutique stores, new expensive-looking restaurants, and well-dressed strangers walking the sidewalks that I wonder if this is really my hometown at all. I start to feel anxious, breathing heavily like I sometimes do. Mom asks me whats wrong, and when I tell her, she again promises that my new therapist, Dr.
Patel, will have me feeling normal in no time. When we arrive home, I immediately go down into the basement, and its like Christmas.

I find the weight bench my mother had promised me so many times, along with the rack of weights, the stationary bike, dumbbells, and the Stomach Master , which I had seen on late-night television and coveted for however long I was in the bad place.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I tell Mom, and give her a huge hug, picking her up off the ground and spinning her around once.
When I put her down, she smiles and says, Welcome home, Pat. Eagerly I go to work, alternating between sets of bench presses, curls, machine sit-ups on the Stomach Master , leg lifts, squats, hours on the bike, hydration sessions I try to drink four gallons of water every day, doing endless shots of H2O from a shot glass for intensive hydration , and then there is my writing, which is mostly daily memoirs like this one, so that Nikki will be able to read about my life and know exactly what Ive been up to since apart time began.
My memory started to slip in the bad place because of the drugs, so I began writing down everything that happens to me, keeping track of what I will need to tell Nikki when apart time concludes, to catch her up on my life.
But the doctors in the bad place confiscated everything I wrote before I came home, so I had to start over. When I finally come out of the basement, I notice that all the pictures of Nikki and me have been removed from the walls and the mantel over the fireplace. I ask my mother where these pictures went.
She tells me our house was burglarized a few weeks before I came home and the pictures were stolen.Perks is jewel-like in its surreal isolation. I ask my mother where these pictures went. My other friends are in music relaxation class, which I do not attend, because smooth jazz makes me angry sometimes.
