The Justice Posse is questioning Joe the Witness on videotape. He claims he's never seen Letterman Jacket before in his life. Letterman Jacket says he's lying, and yells at him to tell the truth. This prompts a wheezing fit from Witness Joe and a mass exodus by the Justice Posse.
In a break room at the hospital, Defense asserts that Joe is "plainly lying," because he's afraid of incriminating himself. Defense astutely points out that while the Justice Posse knows that Joe is on his last legs, Joe himself may not.
Maxine, miraculously and unexplainably out of jail, tells the Posse that Joe does not, in fact, know the seriousness of his illness, and that she's not going to tell him and that they can't make her. Maxine waxes poetic about the fact that while we all know we're going to die, the blessing in life is not knowing when, because it gives us hope for the future. Dude, now I'm depressed. Maxine staunchly refuses to take Joseph's hope away. Amy snips that hope or no hope, Joe can't find that hope based on lies, and that he certainly can't find hope at someone else's expense. She stands up and stalks out of the makeshift courtroom. Letterman Jacket stares pleadingly at Maxine.
