Wyatt wants to inject some "vasodialators" into Boner Guy, who agrees to go along with it. Wyatt asks if Boner Guy rides a bike, and Boner Guy admits that he does. His wife adds, "He's always on that bike." Boner Guy says he got the idea from doctors, because he wants to be fit. Oh, the irony.
Ollie tells Sid she was wrong, and that her patient must be getting the fungus from another source. Sid says that others in the building had symptoms. Ollie says that none of the others tested positive, and people are very suggestible. Yeah, especially Cherry. Ollie says she was supposed to call the CDC, and now she's been called to Ben's office. Sid looks worried.
Ben tells Ollie that she is supposed to "follow orders or people die." Ollie defends herself by saying that if she called the CDC, the newspapers would pick up on the story, and no one would ever want to build a structure in a poor black neighborhood again. Ben says that they could have tested negative and still be allergic. Ollie is taken aback and says it won't happen again. Ben tells her that she successfully diagnosed a rare illness, so she shouldn't "lose [her] fire. It's who [she is]." Ollie's like, "Did I just get yelled at, or praised?"
Ben tells Becky a story about a tree. It's not very interesting. Becky says she's going to continue to try healing with the Tao. Ben says that the analysis of her tumors shows they can get her two to three years. Becky talks about how working with kids has made her set aside her own problems, because they don't care about that, and just live her life, and that they don't care that she's not perfect. Ben tells her that she inspires fatherly feelings in him, and that to him, she is perfect. Becky smiles, and looks down, and then says, "I want to live."
Ben is lecturing again about how they are taught to maintain clinical distance from their patients. However, management experts say that letting workers see the end product is what makes workers happy. It's like letting people on an auto assembly line see the car run. Ben feels it is the same way with doctors, and that he does "love to see [his patients] run." I'm not sure I like the people-as-cars analogy, but I get it.
Next week: Some woman gets misdiagnosed. A girl has sex with her boyfriend in an exam room, and Boies gets pissed. Ben says that his patients don't die. Well, that seems to be like tempting fate, no?
