Dr. Alpert says "Mind if I ask you something?" even though that's what he just did, and he changes the slides to X-rays -- well, not X-rays, but some sort of medical photos that pique Juliet's interest. Alpert asks what she sees, and Juliet stands up and moves over right in front of them. "Well, that's a human womb, obviously. Judging from the decomposition of the endometrium, I would say that the woman was somewhere in her seventies." I was just about to say the same thing! Alpert says the woman is actually 26, surprising Juliet, who wants to know what happened to her. "What if I told you that you could have complete freedom and money to find out? We think you're special, Dr. Burke. And we want you to lead a team of highly trained people because we think you're just that good." Don't believe him! That's the same pitch Sars and Wing Chun give prospective recappers! Then you get Bachelorettes in Alaska!
Anyway, Juliet then starts burbling about how she can't do it, because her ex-husband won't let her, and then there's a weird exchange in which Alpert suggests Mittelos "reach out" to him on her behalf. "There must be something that he would respond to," he says. "If he were hit by a bus. How about that? That would work," she says, and she's practically crying at this point, and she at least admits that this is totally inappropriate, and Alpert tries to play it down, and she apologizes for wasting his time. "Whatever you think I am, I'm not. I'm not a leader, Mr. Alpert. I'm a mess," she says, gathering her things and leaving.
