(sighs) well, i'm dead, charlie. there's... there's no coming back from this. i know. i'm worried about her. she always felt responsible for you. i think in a way she feels like she let you down. maybe that's it. maybe that's why i'm still here. maybe it's my turn to take care of her. and when i know that she's okay, i'll--i'll move on. that could take a while, luke. right? in the meantime, let's, um, let's try this funeral home release. couldn't hurt, right? baby steps. get her to sign it when i see her, and we'll see what happens. thanks.

(siren wailing in distance) so tell me... why do you do it? i mean, is it the social aspect? hope. it gave me so much hope. when you're trapped, tiny moments of freedommean a lot.
11:43 pm
how much does the study cost, anyway? why? i won 500 bucks on a scratch ticket. i'd throw it in if that would help. walter, you know how we've been discussing your self-esteem and how it's easier for you to stay home with vallenwe'en and take care of her than to go out and how socially, your experience is feeling withdrawn? yeah. and i'm gonna work on that, now that vallenwe'en has a home. (exhales) well, actually, walter, about that, um... i've got a good feeling about that doctor. she's a heart doctor, and she is so beautiful. walter, wait. uh-- i gotta say, i love that guinea pig so much,
11:44 pm
to give it to the doctor who fixed my heart. well... walter... (sighs) dr. bell and i discussed the real issues that surround her taking a guinea pig. considering her busy schedule, and, um-- and we decided that at my house vallenwe'en would be left alone for too many hours of the day, and the last time that i checked, my neighborhood doesn't have a guinea pig watcher. (chuckles) so dr. murphy suggested that i make a home for vallenwe'en in my office. that way, i could make sure that she eats every day, and that way, i could make sure that she eats every day, and my office has a south-facing window, so she'll get lots of light. dr. bell, how can i ever thank you? wow, dr. bell. you can thank me by coming to visit vallenwe'en, keep her company. (gavin) really? i will. not every day, right, dr. murphy? we'll talk about what works for you.

(scoffs) wow, this woman is in serious denial. y is that? a 2.5 centimeter tumor in the lower pole? if she takes a bath or puts on a bra, she would have felt it. perhaps she did. perhaps she thought it was benign tissue. not at her age. and what age is that? 16? 75? do you have to make everything a test? okay. see the relationship between the stroma and the lobules. they're almost equal, whic means she's not producing milk.

(chuckles) mm. all right. mm-hmm. (grunts) (camera shutter continues clicking) oh, i'm so sorry. did i dip you too low? oh, no. no, it's okay. it's a little achy lately. it's just... probably the flu, karl.

thanks for coming, man. yeah, well, i know what it's like to lose a patient. what can i do? i really need another set of eyes on this. hello, blake. what you doing here? are you worried about litigation? i see you haven't lost your cynicism, charlie. yeah, any, uh, findings on cause? i believe the scientific term for this is "whoa, mama." that's a crazy big heart. yeah, the autopsy report will indicate intrinsic cardiomyopathy. and sectioning of the brain revealed neurodegeneration at a much higher rate than i'd expecfor her age. now when you were with her earlier, did she exhibit any neurological symptoms? uh, fatigue and an odd kind of aphasia. uh, she would mix up nouns. okay, any common denominator between brain and heart? blood, maybe? what would you expect the cobalt ion content of her blood to be? mm, i'm guessing maybe 1 or 2 micrograms per liter? right, well, this poor woman's was higher by a factor of 6,000. suggesting the hip implant killed her? that's a big leap, charlie.

stating a fact. th is what we suctioned out of the capsule. metallosis. right. and, uh, it didn't show up on the x-ray, but, um... see how the metal's worn down there on the ft-hand side of that? a flaw in the forging process? metal broke down... got into her bloodstream, and it poisoned her. that is exactly what i was thinking. well, that's one theory. i'm sure the metallurgists will have one, and the hematologists, yet another. there's nothing simple about putting foreign objects in the human body. so instead of jumping to conclusions, how about we get this right? (p.a. tone sounds, woman speaking indistinctly) first, i will transect the terminal ducts and separate the nipple areola complex from the underlying tissue. with what margin of normal tissue? 1 centimeter. yore certain? if i can do it in .5, i will. but maintaining the integrity of the vascular supply is my priority. and how do you excise the parenchyma? in a fusiform pattern towards the n.a.c.

what about the hemoclips? oh! right! if we don't put the hemoclips on dana's pectoralis and lateral edges, there'll be no guidance for radiation. dana, you're talking about yourself in the third person now. okay, that's it. we're done here. (sighs) you are such a great surgeon, but you are the world's worst patient. what are you still doing here? stop taking it out on everyone. you're fired. go away. listen, i know that yore worried. i am not worried. i am angry because you are not up to the job. (thuds) you're not angry, you're scared. you know what? that's why charlie left you. really? what was your husband's excuse? oh, you are so fired. this tumor is not going away because you say so, dana, and neither am i. (paper hits floor) you know, when sabian medical asked me to participate in the clinical trials...
12:22 am
i thought, finally we'll have a hip implant that never needs replacing. (pen clicks) this is the result. well, don't beat yourself up. everyone wants to believe in the miracle. well, you were smart enough not to get involved. (chuckles) yeah. that's only 'cause i got burned on the last miracle implant. (drawer clatters) how about a drink? um... (sighs) i really have to take this to pathology. actually, that's going with me. what do you mean, it's going with you? you know the terms of our clinical trial-- any implant removed from participants becomes the sole property of sabian medical devices. what, is that the only reason that you wanted to conduct the autopsy-- just to get your prosthesis? (sighs) if there is a design flaw here, i want to know about it, and i want to get it fixed. yeah, we all do. (chuckles) okay. but let's get some perspective here. this is just one hip-- just one failure out of 3,000 implants to date.
12:23 am
(engine turns off) (dog barks in distance) (doorbell rings) uh, mom, alex is here! molly... i'm surprised you remember me. yeah. hey. hi. um, i'm at sherri's until 11:00 studying french. so i will see you later. studying or meeting jason? 'cause i don't see a textbook. c'est ici, ma belle m re. good, well, study hard, because you just called me your "mother-in-law." (groans) oh. it's "tr s belle m re." yes, love you. how are you getting home? sherri's mom. god, if that skirt were any shorter,
12:24 am
so did i. sister valenciaga with a ruler. 2 1/2 inches above the knee, max. you're still fired, by the way. i'd quit if i wasn't. i'm making carrot and coriander soup. or leek and potato, courgette and mint. yes. (sighs) i know. i've been cooking. it helps me think. (clinks) that's a lot of thinking. mm-hmm. so, doctor... making house calls? remember the b.r.c.a. test you canceled? mm-hmm. the one that saved the hospital $3,000-- at about it? well, i guess they didn't get the facts because they sent me the results. oh. (pot lid clatters) it's come back positive. which means the risk of a recurrence of breast cancer is... (slams pot lid shut) 80%, yes. i know the prognosis. not great odds. (chopping) so they'll have to come off. hmm? well, i-i think that's a little hasty.
12:25 am
there may be no ne for a double mastectomy. off! and the ovaries, too. just take 'em out. (chopping continues) never underestimate the power of energizer. our longest lasting energizer max ever. with the pain and swelling of my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis... ordinary objects often seemed... intimidating. doing something simple... meant enduring a lot of pain. if ra is changing your view of everyday things orencia may help.
12:26 am
by targeting a source of ra early in the inflammation process. for many, orencia provides long-term relief of ra symptoms. it's helped new ra patients and those not help enough by other treatments. do not take orencia with another biologic medicine for ra due to an increased risk of serious infection. serious side effects can occur including fatal infections. cases of lymphoma anlung cancer have been reported. tell your doctor if you're prone to or have any infection like an open sore, the flu, or a history of copd, a chronic lung disease. orcia may worsen your copd. if you're not getting the relief you need... ask your doctor about orencia. orencia. see your ra in a different way. eat up, buddy. you'll get it this time. yeah ok not too quick don't let go until iay so. i got you... start strong with the lasting energy of 100% you're doing it!
12:27 am
we all eat foods that are acidic... we all have risk of acid erosion. there's only so much enamel, and everybody needs to do something about it now if they want to preserve their teeth. i recommend pronamel. it helps strengthen the tooth and makes it more resistant
12:28 am
karl thought i was having an affair because i sneak off thursdays.
12:29 am
i was gonna tell him at the recital. see, i startedhi teacng this class-- young kids... having their first recital thursday. i thought maybe you could go. be me. and wear a tutu? no, thank you. no. see, before the kids go on stage, we have this secret ritual. they can't dance without it. you know, my, um... fianc\e-- or i guess, ex-fianc\e-- took me to a ballet once. (sighs) and i fell asleep.
12:30 am
of the recurrence of cancer when you can take control? (cork pops but is a double mastectomy the right way? i'm all or nothing kind of gal. but you want to keep your nipples? definitely. (bottle thuds) losing them reduces the risk of recurrence to 1%. (sighs) where the hell is that pizza? ugh, i don't know. i mean, after two bowls of soup, i'm stuffed. wait till you see our delivery guy. (chuckles) you're drunk. (doorbell rings) (clinks) (cell phone buzzes) (chuckles) how are you? (man) i'm well. how are you? hi. well, i'm having a crap day. how about you? i'm over at dana's. oh... (chuckles) stop. yeah, my spies told me that. how is she taking it? i think she's pretty much in denial. extra special topping... listen, i was thinking about that, uh, that time you took me to the ballet. and i just wanted to tell you that i'm sorry...
12:31 am
i'm sorry for spoiling it because i fell asleep. charlie... you can't do this. you can't just call me. i know. anyways, you got it backwards, like you do everything. i'm the one who worked the triple shift. i fell asleep. you stayed awake. you loved it. (sniffs) (dana, chuckles) that's strong. i gotta go. have a good evening. yes. (footsteps depart) (laughing) i just scored some pot and a pizza. (laughter) whoo! (box thuds) let's go skinny dipping. (chuckles) you are officially out of control. good! because i'm ck and tired of being in control. i've been in control my entire life.
12:32 am
i'm passed over for chief, my husband has left me for his secretary, and i am paying him alimony. i'm a single mother with breast cancer... who's terrified that she's never gonna live to see her daughter grow up. (whispers) dana. (sobs and inhales sharply) sorry, i don't mean to get maudlin, i-- it's okay. it's just... (sighs) remember how we used to pray for these when we were kids? and then somehow we forget, right? we-- we just take them for granted, but they are so useful... and pretty... and they feed babies. fun for the whole family. (sighs) girls... (inhales deeply) it's been grt. to the pointer sisters. (clink) so i appreciate you coming in at the last minute.
12:33 am
i'm just gonna examine your range of motion. has it ever given out on you? very, very impressive, mate. uh, how about we get you down to the lab, check out your blood, just to, uh, be safe? (sighs) that's it. just walk. (exhales deeply) i hate to put you through it again. um... this hip has to come out. it's my anniversary next month. i promised my wife we'd go dancing. well, how about i do it this thursday? (sighs) i'll replace it with a ceramic. (p.a. tone sounds) (woman speaking indistinctly on p.a.)
12:34 am
(grunts) you said you had some sort of secret magic ritual for your dancers for this recital thingy. i'm not about to tell you if you're not going. but it's--it's only magic that you can do. or my emissary. me talking to dancers is stranger than me talking to you. (chuckles) tell me what to say. you'll know what to say. no leotards, right? mnh-mnh. i'll dit. thank you. (whispers) whoa! ah, shoot! (chuckles)
12:35 am
(dog barking in distance) (exhales sharply) okay. let's go! let's go! (doorknob rattles) ah, come on. don't tell me we're locked out. oh! no, no, no, no, no, no, there's a key around here someplace. unbelievable. oh, come on. you had a blast. you cannonballing into that pool-- that's the most fun you've had since this whole charlie thing. mm, you don't need to hear my sad little story. no, i need to pee. pee in a bush. (whispers) okay. (wine sloshing in bottle) where's the key? (vehicle approaches, siren whoops) oh, this is not good. oh. (car door closes) i've got this. okay. (male officer) evening, ladies. evening, officer. i had a call-- two naked trespassers. (police radio chatter) she said we were allowed to. well-- you said we were allowed to. actually... (chuckles, blows raspberry) okay, okay. officer, we are not trespassers. we're actually doctors. you want a tummy tuck? i'm your gal.
12:36 am
great. let's go with that. okay. can you tell me your address? oh! here it is. shoot. empty. officer, if you could just let us in, she'll be able to prove that she lives... (glass breaks) (radio chatter continues) okay. (handle clicks, glass shatters) ooh! we're good to go. no! i was just-- just please-- hands on the hood! both of you. (laughs) (whispers) this is serious. i know. (blows raspberry) ooh, hey. don't make this a love story. okay. okay, okay-- anything in your pockets that cou hurt me? oh--oh. play the card. no. ye if there was ever a time to play the card, it's now. (static, radio chatter) officer? yeah, um... i-i have cancer, and so that's medicinal... for chemo. i almost have a prescription. and she's writing me one. i'm her doctor.
12:37 am
thanks for calling. hey, i need to bring you up to speed. i called in all of our mutual patients. um, and i... you should take a look at what i discovered. (purse thuds) what are those cloudy bits right there? my guess is they are pseudo-cysts. they are little pieces of metal that have broken away from the implant. the immune system sort of... contains them in the soft tissue. and, um... it's kind of like an oyster makes a pearl out of a grain of sand. except these pearls mean my product is worthless. look, if it was only paulina's hip that had failed, then i'd tell you this is an outlier, but... to--to have 3 faulty hips out of 2 dozen-- suggests a catastrophic design failure. (alcohol pouring) it certainly destroys your chance of f.d.a. approval, yeah. mind you, the trouble may not be with the product. it may just be the surgeon.
