A trolley goes by the house at Pier 70. What is with all the transportation in this episode? So far, we've seen boats, cars, a bus, trains, and a trolley. What next? Is a gondola going to float by? Perhaps a rickshaw? And technically, I guess the flashback elephant footage counts as transportation, since people were riding the elephant. Irene sits alone in the sun, and we hear her say in a voice-over, "There are people that walk around with medical problems all the time that you just don't know about. Like, I took my medicine every night and I regulated myself, but I was a person that walked around with this that nobody really knew about. And now it's different and our bodies demand it, and I do have to go public. I mean, my body is making me." At the end there, Irene was talking in some weird Southern accent, but I chalk that up to plain old quirkiness rather than some sort of mental illness. Although, from what they just showed us, you would think she was talking about mental illness, wouldn't you?
Irene and Janet walk down the street. Irene voice-overs that it's been "three years that I've been sick with this Lyme Disease. You get it from a tick, and I'm not better." Janet and Irene sit in a coffee shop. Janet says she feels like "a chump," because they haven't taken Irene's problems seriously enough. Irene lets her off the hook by saying, "Sickness is hard for anyone to understand." Irene voice-overs that she was diagnosed before her sophomore year of college, and that she had "no concept of what Lyme Disease was." We keep hearing the voice-overs while we see Irene talking to Janet, and if you weren't playing close attention, you would definitely think that Irene was saying these things to Janet instead of in response to a producer's questions. Irene starts crying as she talks to Janet, and admits that she's "psyched" that she's "gotten this far," but she also wonders whether it's ever going to get better. She concludes, "Am I going to live my life like this? Oh my God!" Janet just looks at her, and doesn't know how to react, because she hasn't checked with Lindsay yet. Janet and Irene walk home, and Irene starts sobbing. At one point, Irene starts laughing, possibly in response to something Janet said, and then they cut to a different shot of Janet looking totally serious, so that you think Irene is crazy. Then Irene is crying again, and she tells Janet that she misses being healthy. Janet says she can't believe that Irene's been going through this alone.
