After commercial, Boies is up. He says that Cherry and Ollie updated him on Sunday afternoon. Cut to Boies giving Ollie and Cherry quite the dressing-down, as he points out that the doctors have given Porter a heart attack and now kidney failure. Boies tells them to go home. Wyatt is on the phone with his mother. Does he do anything but make personal calls? Boies gets serious and hands Porter over to Wyatt, telling him that although he's Wyatt's patient, Wyatt needs to do exactly what Boies says.
Lab Guy gives his testimony to Ben. It's all lab talk, and I can't really make heads or tails of it. Boies says he gave the lab report "due consideration" on Sunday evening. Cut to Boies telling Wyatt that he doesn't want to give Porter meds. Wyatt thinks Porter has a staph infection. Boies checks out the report and reveals that they don't know what kind of staph it is, where it came from, or if he even has it for sure. Boies wants to "let him heal" and "wait it out."
Wyatt is talking to the nurse, and they note that Porter's temperature is spiking. Wyatt consults Boies, who doesn't want to do anything until the lab confirms it's a bug. The nurse tells Wyatt that Porter's "potassium is six" and she thinks he should be on dialysis. Wyatt calls Boies, and leaves a message. The nurse can't believe he hasn't talked to Boies, and points out that it's Wyatt's patient. This appears to be all the convincing Wyatt needs, as he orders dialysis. Can he even do that? Ben feels the same way. Boies admits that Wyatt did it "without [his] consent and without [his] consultation." Just when you think Wyatt is in big, big trouble, Ben points out that Wyatt saved the patient's life at that time. Oh, so it wasn't that bad.
Boies continues that, at about 3 AM on Sunday, he stopped by to check on Porter, and he was stable and still undergoing dialysis. The dialysis guy says that Porter's blood is as "thick as mud" and asks if Boies can cover for a minute while he takes a break. Boies agrees. Ben establishes that Boies was responsible for the patient. We see Boies's beeper go off, and he checks out some sort of monitor. It must look okay, because Boies walks out of the room and asks the nurse at the desk to look in on Porter while he returns the page. He does, and it's relating to his coach-flying thrombosis case. The nurse hears someone calling weakly for her, and goes into another patient's room instead of Porter's. Boies is detained on the phone for a moment longer. Ben can't believe he left the patient. Boies tries to say that he had to make a phone call, and Ollie looks surprised. Cut to the dialysis machine suddenly shutting down and all sorts of alarms going off. Commercial.
