The jingle continues as we fade to the Museum Section of the hospital. Cameron asks Mitch if he has a second and walks him towards the statue to ask if he can have the two hundred dollars back that Mitch kept from his paycheck. Mitch obviously isn't interested in this conversation, but Cameron says he needs it for Kenny and he thinks that Mitch'll be "really proud of [him]." Mitch still isn't interested. Cameron says that he wants to do something for Kenny and it's a "long shot" and he doesn't even know if he can "pull it off." I look out my sliding glass door. I look out down the road. About a mile. That's where I can see this plot line coming from. I figure I've got time to clean up before it gets here. Mitch puts a hand on Cameron's shoulder (which seems to be Mitch's signature move indicating "concern") as two other "people" (you can't tell the visitors from the staff from the patients, really) walk down the hall to the Renaissance Era exhibit. Mitch says that they don't really need any distractions right now and they would rather Cameron just stick close. The oboe is joined by the piano for the five-note jingle as Cameron stares at the ground.
Pan across the museum/hospital hallway to Kenny and Pepsi Girl. He asks if her mom is still there. She says that her mom goes home at nights now. She used to stay all night and sleep in a chair, but she goes home now. Kenny asks how long she's been there. "Two months." Kenny says that he's been there less than a day. Emotion registers on Pepsi Girl's face in such a way that you can see the three thoughts she's thinking at once. It's such a refreshing change of acting choices. Depth. Subtext. Hidden meaning. I try not to get too drunk off the talent. She tells Kenny that she'd like to tell him that it gets easier. He says she seems to have adjusted well. "I meant for the parents," she says, as she watches Mitch and Mary sit over Coma Kenny. Lord. Coma Kenny is in his bed underneath this huge window where a beam of white light shines in a perfect circle around his body. Mary sits at one side reading a book, while Mitch has his face buried in the other side while he sleeps. Where's everyone else? It doesn't matter, as it would ruin this Jesus Portrait they've made with Kenny.
