So Tish, when are you starting that new job at the
I’m not, I turned it down.
You turned it down? But why?
I couldn’t get any information on who owns that bank
or why I was hired.
But it was a good job, just perfect for you. And the
salary was fantastic.
That’s what worried me. It was the salary that made me
take those other jobs without asking why I was being

I have no home.
Is there anything that I can get you for next time?
Yes, the Doctor. I need to see the Doctor.
I need to give him something. To tell him something

Excuse me Doctor Jones. It’s time for Mrs. Saxon’s
Lucy grabs Martha’s arm.
Martha! Tell him. Tell the Doctor to come. There’s
something he has to know. You will do it Martha.
( Martha leaves the room. Dr. Kinderhaus meets her in
the lobby as she is signing out.)
And how was Mrs Saxon today.
