(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. you're 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. and then? then i close. 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 yourlf 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.
12:20 am
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 clinil trials... i jumped. i thought, finally we'll have a hip implant that never needs replacing. (penlicks) 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. (chuckle yeah. that's only 'cause i got burned on the last miracle implant.
12:21 am
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. that's less than any prosthesis on the market.
12:22 am
(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 srri'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, it would be a scarf. i had hem inspection every morning. 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 kw. i've been cooking. it helps me think.
12:23 am
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-- what 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. with proper monitoring, there may be no need for a doub mastectomy. off! and the ovaries, too. just take 'em out.

12:28 am
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. (strained voice) so why live with the anxiety of the recurrence of cancer when you can take control? (cork pops) but is a doue mastectomy the right way? i'm an 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?
12:29 am

(man) i'm well. how are you? hi. well, i'm having a crap day. hoabout 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, at time you took me to the ballet. and i just wanted to tell you that i'm sorry... (inhales deeply) i'm sorry for spoiling i 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.
12:30 am
(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 sick and tired of bng in control. i've been in control my entire life. and where has it gotten me? huh? 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.
12:31 am
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 great. to the pointer sisters. (clink) so i appreciate you coming in at the last minute. i know i wasn't supposed to see you until next month. 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?
12:32 am
(exhales deeply) i hate to t 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.) (p.a. tone sounds) (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 t going. but it's--it's only magic that you can do. or my emissary.
12:33 am
me talking to you. (chuckles) tell me what to say. you'll know what to say. no leotards, right? mnh-mnh. i'll do it. thank u. (whispers) whoa! ah, shoot! (chuckles) i'm so cold... (blows air) come on. (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.
12:34 am
pee in a bush. (whispers) okay. (wine sloshing in bottle) where's the key? (vehicle approaches, siren whoops) oh, this is not good. oh. (c 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. she lives here. great. let's go with that. okay. can you tell me your address? oh! here it is. shoot. empty. officer, if you could st 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.
12:35 am
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 could hurt me oh--oh. play the card. no. yes, 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. m her doctor. it's--it's fine. 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.
12:36 am
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. i'm sorry, what did you say? you're the common denominator here, joel. this could be surgical error. uh, well, no one can make that case. (chuckles) well, it doesn't have to be true to do damage. i think you should leave. gee, i didn't realize when we slept together, that you had such thin skin. it was one time.
