About Dr. Nickelson
When a shooting occurs at Max's school, George takes him to see a counselor at his school Dr. Nickelson, who ends up spending seven hours in his school office with George, who was supposed to taking max to see about stress issues, which was supposedly because of witnessing the shooting, but, he and Dr. Nickelson discovers that Max's issue was not because of what he saw at school, but because of George not being at home and staying with Ernie because of George and Benny arguing all the time, as the visit to the doctors' office turns into an impromptu "therapy" session for George instead, as he wearies Dr. Nickelson, telling him about his "abuse" as a kid at the hands of Benny.
Remarkably, Dr. Nickleson describes the same thing about a similar relationship with his own mother, as he describes to George that they "finally had a breakthrough" in their relationship, as he tells him "She died!", as, since George stayed in his school office for so long, that he drops by his private practice office, as when George asks how much it would cost, Dr. Nickelson tells him it would cost $150 an hour. George then suggests that he and Nickelson become buddies, and that Dr. Nickelson stops by his home once a week, and that he'd "bring chicken"! In the end, George winds up getting back at Angie (for taking Benny's side during the arguement which caused him to leave home and stay at Ernie's in the first place) by telling the Dr. Nickelson, who indeed stops by the Lopez home to visit George and have dinner with the family, to convince Angie that she has "Know-it-all syndrome", and he, incredibly agrees due to being annoyed by what he describes as her "constant talking, talking talking!".
