Boies comes upon Wyatt taking cultures from a large group of people. Boies is mad about the chaos. Wyatt just keeps sticking culture swabs up people's noses. The people don't look very happy about it. Boies grabs a swab and helps out, angrily.
A maintenance guy hands Sid a stack of pink slips, explaining that they are all the completed maintenance requests for the entire hospital for the past two weeks. Sid says that he only needs the ones on floors two through five for the past four days. Maintenance Guy says they are in there. Sid can't believe the guy won't help him find them. MG says, "Sure I am. Because I have nothing better to do." He takes off. Heh.
Ollie and Ben go over what they know about the sick patients. Basically, they had nothing in common. Cherry comes in and tells them what's wrong with Sharon. Ben orders more dopamine, but she's maxed out on dopamine. Ben orders another drug, and Cherry asks about the damage to her kidneys. Ben points out that death will damage her kidneys too. Yeah, good point. Lab Guy comes in and tells them that all of the existing cases show the same bacteria. Ben is glad. Lab Guy says there have been two more cases today. Ben is sad.
Ben can't believe that his biopsy guy has the infection. Boies and Wyatt walk in with their cultures. Ben scolds Boies for getting involved, but Wyatt covers. Cherry walks in, and Ben tells Boies that they'll talk later. Cherry reports that Sharon is not getting worse, but she's not getting better. Ben asks about the kitchen, and Cherry says they didn't find anything there. Ollie thinks they need to start ruling things out, like the food, because some of the patients weren't allowed to eat anyway. Ben isn't ready to, because something carried the bacteria to all eight patients. Boies interrupts and points out that they've been trying to find something common to all eight, when maybe they should look at subgroupings. Ben reluctantly listens to Boies, who points out that four of them were on I.V. drips, four were on the same floor, etc. Ben says that it can't be the I.V. solutions because they come sealed, and the whole batch would have been bad. Boies says that sometimes medications are added to the I.V. bags, and that's done in the pharmacy. Ben starts barking out orders, and he lets Boies be the one to check out the pharmacy. Aw, I hope they become friends again.
Wyatt complains to Ollie that his wife won't talk to him. Ollie isn't sure that that's bad, and thought that he wanted distance. Wyatt says that he "didn't ask for this." Ollie babbles about the difference between a bad husband and an unhappy husband, and says that she stays busy because "busy is happy." Wyatt wonders why she doesn't want something more long-term in a relationship. You know, I have to hand it to this show. Having the Ollie character be male would have just been another cliché -- the doctor who sleeps around and doesn't want to settle down, but deep down is unhappy. By making Ollie female, it's a little more interesting. Anyway, Ollie points out that Wyatt keeps changing his mind about what he wants. Wyatt says that he just wants his life back. Still not feeling sorry for him. Am I supposed to? Ollie says that's not that much to ask, and they go get more cultures.
