Ben tells Barb and Tim that there's no sign of a fungus in Larry's test, which doesn't mean that there isn't one. Tim starts to complain about Larry's care, but then realizes that it doesn't matter. Ben asks why Tim is there, when he's never been there before. Tim says that his dad probably never mentioned him either. Ben says that he did, calling Tim "the son that marched to the beat of a different drummer." Either Ben's lying, or this is bad continuity, because earlier in the episode Ben was surprised that there was another son. Ben says that Larry was proud of Tim, and asks why Tim showed up now. Tim says he's there to make sure that his father is taken care of properly, and that his father wouldn't be "kept alive beyond what was reasonable and humane." Tim asks what happens now. Ben says they keep him comfortable. Tim thinks it's a disaster, but Ben sees it as an opportunity for Tim to put things right. Tim does that "I'm going to look very angry so you can't tell that I'm crying" thing. He looks a lot like Joe Rogan.
Boies approaches Lucinda's daughter in the waiting room. She says that this hospital's food is way better than the other hospital's food. Boies takes the opportunity to discover that Lucinda "fell down the stairs" some time back and got a black eye and a broken nose. You know, I don't mean to make light of domestic abuse, but couldn't its victims (on television at least) come up with some other excuse? It's so transparent.
Ben finds Tim in Larry's room, and asks if they talked. Tim says they did, but he doesn't know if his father heard it. He asks Ben not to "say anything wise or uplifting." Brother, that's like asking the sun not to shine.
Boies walks painfully into Lucinda's room. Lucinda notices the hangover. Hey, Continuity! You're back! Boies looks for marks or bruises on Lucinda's neck. Lucinda says that her ex-husband tried to strangle her a month ago, but she didn't press charges because she didn't think it was a big deal. Boies asks where the ex is now. Lucinda says that he's in the waiting room to pick up their daughter. Boies runs out and confronts the ex-husband, and tells him the strangling caused her stroke. The ex denies it. Boies physically restrains him and spits into his face, "You could have killed her, you son of a bitch."
