After the break, Dr. Ben tries to explain to Snake-Bait and Yappy GF that releasing the snake's pressure could cause S-B to bleed out and die. S-B, though, is kind of panicky at the thought of having to keep the snake around him for a jungle trek. So the four of them hoist up Snake-Bait and Friend on the gurney and begin walking. (Which...I am dubious that three women and Ben could carry both a man and a huge-ass anaconda, but whatevs.)
Mina, Clark, and Wind Chimes are taking a riverboat down to Chimes's village. Clark is chatting him up, in Spanish, and she sees that Mina is off making notes in isolation. Clark tells her that "Bruno" and his sister grew up in an artists' colony in Venezuela; as you can imagine, this doesn't really rouse Mina's interest. Clark somewhat subtly suggests that with Mina speaking no Spanish, it's easiest to learn by trying to speak a little every day. She also volunteers that her parents were missionaries and asks about Mina's upbringing, at which Mina cuts her off: While she'd be happy to chit-chat about her "crap language skills and WASPy ubringing after hours" (which...kinda doubt that's true), when she's on the job, she works alone. Clark smiles and is all, "Okay, then."
Over to Plastics, who has recruited Charlie the Boy Sage to help him with the latrine. And to help better announce his presence as the douche American, Plastics has decided to don mirrored sunglasses and pop his collar. Good lord. So apparently Plastics and Charlie have a deal where Charlie will teach him Spanish while Plastics will let Charlie apprentice him on his medical excursions. If and when he ever actually gets to do them. Plastics spots some kids playing on the other side of a shallow stream, and one girl in a soccer jersey, sitting alone. She's got kind of a poorly-healed gash on her chin, but otherwise she looks like a normal young girl. But when Plastics asks for a translation for "Wanna build a bathroom," Charlie averts his eyes and looks away from the girl, nervous. Plastics needles Charlie for being a terrible Spanish teacher, and when he turns back, he sees the girl having a seizure and then falling into the stream. Plastics runs into the stream to save her, but when he yells for the other children to help him, they run away. Even Charlie won't venture towards the stream. Plastics is dumbfounded, but he keeps trying to save the girl by himself.
Mina's examining Bruno's sister and assesses that she's got pneumonia and is in pretty dire circumstances. Bruno doesn't understand but senses that is bad and begins to cry, so Clark tells him something in Spanish that calms him. She then reminds Mina that the girl is Bruno's only family. Mina predictably blows right past this and says they need to break up the mucus in her lungs or she'll essentially drown in them. "Wish I had a steam tent," Mina muses. Clark gabs her arm: "Ask, and you shall receive." Which is either clichéd writing or Clark's third religion-tinted remark in two episodes. Developing...
