Special Sub-Topic: "Nip/Tuck" - "Frankenlaura"
|Silas Prine's morbid pastime was discovered when a man came to retrieve what from the mortuary?|
wedding ring. As Glen Easley, the manager of the mortuary, explained to Sean and Christian, possessions should be returned before cremation and the man's wife was scheduled to be cremated a week prior, so when they couldn't find her possessions they went looking to see if they'd been misplaced. What they found was a number of bodies missing limbs and the body Prine had sewn together from the varied parts to create a whole woman.
|What did Christian tell Gina he could no longer pay for?|
rent and car lease. He reassured her that he would still pay for her medications but, because of the state of the business, he would no longer be able to cover her rent and car lease. She blew up at him, furious because she'd been hoping to get him to loan her money to buy some real estate.
|Where did Sean go to try to sell the McNamara/Troy services?|
nursing home. He went to Carl's nursing home but the patients didn't seem to understand or be interested. One man was snoring and another was wetting his pants where he sat in his wheelchair. Sean finally said that, through the end of the year, if they came in for one procedure, the second would be half price. One woman seemed interested (and later did come to McNamara/Troy for a facelift) but the sales pitch overall seemed pretty hopeless.
|What did Gina say Julia had that she had always wanted?|
dignity. Gina told Julia that she was trying to surround herself with people she respected. Then she told Julia, "You're at the top of my list." Julia was obviously flattered and taken aback, but reminded Gina that she was a "divorcee, with no job, living in a short term apartment with a 10-year old and a high-schooler who's pretty messed up." Gina wasn't hearing any of it and told Julia, "But you have dignity. That's something I've always wanted."
|Who fired Liz?|
no one. Liz resigned of her own volition. She saw how much Sean and Christian were struggling so she submitted her resignation to try to help alleviate the situation.
|Did McNamara/Troy opt into Julia and Gina's surgical recovery spa?|
no. Quentin wanted to, but Christian mocked the idea and Sean was more than a little skeptical. After taking a bit of criticism, the women packed up and moved on. They were able to find investors elsewhere, though, and moved forward with their business plan.
|What was Silas Prine's relation to the woman whose head he had used on his "Frankenlaura"?|
he was her brother. Prine made Sean promise to preserve the head so that he could be reunited with her when he got out of prison. Sean agreed and asked again who the woman was. Prine told him simply, "Her name is Laura, and she's my sister."
|Who did Julia hire from McNamara/Troy for her surgical recovery spa?|
Liz. Sean and Christian told Liz that she could come back because they'd done the mortuary job so could pay her salary again. Liz told them, though, that she'd taken a job as a General Practitioner at Julia's spa. Sean was clearly shocked and hurt, asking why she'd want to go work there. Liz told him that she thought Julia's spa had the "potential to really help people." Sean asked incredulously, "You don't think we're helping people?" Liz looked at him and said with sad resignation, "I guess I am just tired of putting them to sleep."
|Did Sean want to operate on Mrs. Ogulvie, the woman from the nursing home?|
no. He was clearly uncomfortable with the prospect of the surgery, pointing out the risks posed by her age and the reality that her skin had so little elasticity that she wouldn't be able to smile or frown. As he told Mrs. Ogulvie, "It'll mask the real you." The woman was more interested in Christian's reassurances, though, and signed up for surgery that very afternoon. Sean walked out in the middle of the surgery, upset because of the situation with Silas Prine and also probably in part because he'd been thinking about what Liz had said and wondering if they were actually helping their patients.
|Did Sean preserve the woman's head for Silas Prine?|
no. He removed the head from the body Prine had sutured it onto and burned it in the incinerator.
