Ollie enters Max's office. Her hair is very lanky and unprofessional. Sars would tell her to put. Her hair. Up. ["Word. My kingdom for a barrette, people." -- Sars] Max says that his friend is coming in to see Ollie, and he wants ten minutes of her time. The friend is Josh Steinman, the owner of the sick building.
Ben sees Becky sitting in the foyer. He sits and asks what's wrong. She's bleeding under the skin on her back. Ben says it could be because the cancer has invaded her bone marrow. Becky says that Tao Healer is concerned too, and he gave her a salve. A fucking salve? If I'm bleeding under the skin, I want more than a fucking salve. That's for damn sure. Oh my God, I think I just channeled my father. Ben offers to do a blood test, but Becky's going to stick with the salve. Ben tells her they are getting near the point where her cancer will be untreatable. Becky babbles about how physical life is not the only life. Ben tells her that she helps those children. Ooh, go for the jugular, Ben! Ben thinks that Becky came to him for morphine because she was skeptical, which is a sign of strength, not weakness. Becky would rather be dead than have to deal with this, and she would just like to move on. Ben tells her she could get two or three more years. Becky's not interested. Ben tells her that a cure could be two years away. Apropos of nothing, Becky tells a long story about seeing her mother's mastectomy scars, and having her mother ask if Becky could still love her the way she was, "like she was defective or something." Becky was seven years old at the time. Ben listens. See that? He was listening.
Ollie meets with Steinman. Ollie tells him his building is making people sick. Steinman thinks that those people don't want to be in his building because "they don't want to commute to a black neighborhood." Ollie tells him that her patient tested positive for that bacteria, and she didn't imagine it. Steinman sighs, and Ollie walks away.
