Meanwhile, out in Minnesota, the hold-up is still in progress. The robber decides to give C-Note some lip, and he replies, "Look, my daughter is sick, and I don't want to spend any more minutes in here than [is] necessary. Trust me -- that is all [the cash] that I have." The robber moves on. When a bulky older guy goes to rush the robber, he back-hands him with his gun hand. C-Note tells him to calm down, and the robber screams, "Shut! Up!" A dedicated contingent of forum posters begins applauding. C-Note does not shut. Instead, he just... talks himself into taking over the situation: "Listen to me. You have got to calm down. I can get you everything you want, but you don't want to hurt anybody else, right? Come on. Look -- listen -- hey ... why don't you lock the door and turn the 'Closed' sign back so everybody thinks that this place is closed. And then we can get away from the windows." A blonde waitress closes the door and flips the sign, and then C-Note suggests that everyone move over to the far side of the room. The robber is too panicky to notice that not only is C-Note practicing crowd control, he's just grabbed the hearts and minds of the crowd too. C-Note sends Dede to the back of the room with Blonde Waitress Lady, then puts himself between the crowd and the robber, saying, "We're all good, right?"
Back on the train, back down at the bathroom door. I give points to Michael for heading back down there again. This time, Dr. Sara lets him in, and he wanders over to one corner, waiting for her to speak. Dr. Sara tells him, "I, uh, I jumped bail, I'm on the run, and I just tried to take a man's life." She looks over at Michael, who is wearing his broody face, and tells him, "I'm not using, which is actually quite an accomplishment." Michael does not respond. She looks away, noting, "About three weeks ago, I was a doctor." And, unless the state certification boards move really quickly, she still is, no? She's just between gigs. Michael tells her, "You can get that back... you need to believe that." Dr. Sara looks over at him and asks, "Do you believe that? Do you think you can get it all back?" It's a nicely-composed shot: she's sitting in front of a mirror, so while she appears to be looking at Michael, he also appears to be behind her. Go wild, all ye semioticians. Michael moves over next to her, sits down, says, "I choose to have faith, because without that, I have nothing." Dr. Sara gives him a skeptical look, and he adds matter-of-factly, "It's the only thing keeping me going." Sara replies, "I got two things keeping me going: the first is that I want the people who took my dad. And actually, the second... ironically, I wouldn't even say, if I hadn't lost, um... you should know that, uh... the first thing they tell you when you take the job is, um, never to fall in love with an inmate."
