I'm now watching the tape from earlier today. I'll summarize a bit, but I'm only paying 75% attention.
Maureen has contacted Dr. Phil because she has a family situation that is concerning her very much.
She has a brother (call him Brother 1 until I catch his name) - who has something or the other wrong with him, I missed exactly what. When they were little, Brother 1 was always able to get their parents to do whatever he wanted them to do. Their father is now living with Brother 1.
She has another brother too (Brother 2, for now). Both Maureen and Brother 2 are worried because Brother 1 and their father have stopped communicating with them, locked up the house, and say that Maureen is crazy and needs help.
Maureen is very upset about all of this, using a lot of dramatic language about her heart, etc. Dr. Phil saw some video, and he told Maureen that based on what he saw, she has every right to be VERY concerned.
And he is going to tell her exactly what she needs to do.
