Storyline

A football player collapses of dehydration during a practice session, but doesn't die...but his fellow player and best friend Joshua Peter Lagmead is ignored as he falls a moment later. Nate and Brenda prepare to make her high-school boyfriend Trevor envious when he visits for dinner with his own family, but in between trying to succeed, Nate is plagued with visions of Josh weeping, afraid of what will happen to him in death, and does his best to ignore his presence. Robbie graduates from The Plan, and invites Ruth to be his witness, and she's intrigued by the positive outcome and free-spiritedness seen in all its graduates so considers enrolling. David tries to keep contact with Keith as a friend, and when he tags by Keith's sister Karla's houses so he can give his niece Taylor a birthday gift, Taylor becomes intrigued on their relationship, while Keith is angry with his relapsing drug-addict sister for neglecting Taylor. Claire learns that Gabe stole embalming fluid from the Fishers... Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Trivia

Trevor's wife refers to her appearance on Politically Incorrect (1993) and adds that the "emaciated chick" from The Practice (1997) was also on the show with her. This is presumably a reference to the show's star, Lara Flynn Boyle, who is well known for her often very skinny figure. See more »

Goofs

The reflection of a crew member's walking feet can be seen in the reflection of Mitzi Dalton Huntley's car as she drives into her parking space. See more »

Quotes

Nate Fisher: What would you rather have, some overly-educated gas bag like Trevor, or a semi-literate fuck-machine like me, come on.

Disclosing Innermost Feelings
8 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the football player Sam Langmead dies of dehydration after a strong training, the Fishers are hired for the funeral services. Brenda invites her former sweetheart Trevor, his wife Dawn and their son Will for a dinner with Nate. Rico asks for a US$ 11,000.00 loan to David and Nate to buy a house for his family, but David decides to buy an Appleby casket wall instead. The executive of Kroehner Mitzi Dalton Huntley makes another offer to buy the Fisher's business. Claire finds that Gabe stole a controlled substance for embalming corpse to make stronger marijuana and robbed a convenience store. Nate is haunted by the spirit of Sam and decides to tell his brother about his condition AVM and that he may have a stroke or an aneurysm any moment.

"Out, Out, Brief Candle" is a depressing episode of "Six Feet Under", with the problematic Claire recalling her traumatic childhood; Claire finding the dark side of Gabe; and Nate disclosing his disease to David. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vida Breve" ("Short Life")
