Scene shifts to Alice and Jacob’s house. Saanvi is at Jacob’s bedside performing some tests on him.
JACOB: Thank you for coming. Since we lost the insurance, nobody will come to the house. [COUGHS]
SAANVI: Okay. You got to save your energy. You know, your wife loves you very much.
Alice and Saanvi leave the room.
ALICE: So you think you could help him?
SAANVI: I’m sorry, Alice. I wish I had better news, but there’s nothing I can tell you that your doctors haven’t already told you.
ALICE: But your treatment.
SAANVI: Jacob’s cancer is just too far along.
ALICE: We’ve only been married for two years. I’ve spent half of it going from specialist to specialist. I’m not ready to lose him.
SAANVI: I’m sorry, Alice. You and Jacob really should be looking to make him as comfortable as possible.
ALICE: What? Until he dies?
SAANVI: I’m happy to make some recommendation for palliative care, if you like.
ALICE: N-No. I-I would not like. I want you to make him better.
Alice’s Attack and Threat
ALICE: You are returned. You were brought back here to help, so help. You can cure him.
SAANVI: I’m sorry. I don’t know where you got that impression. I’m just a doctor. Actually, you know what? I have to go.
ALICE: No, no. Please. You’re the only one.
SAANVI: Alice, there is nothing I can do to help
Alice slaps Saanvi in the face breaking open her skin on her left cheek.
ALICE: I’m sorry. I am so sorry.
SAANVI: It’s okay. It’s okay. I just really have to go.
ALICE: I told you, you’re going to save him. Get in there. Do what you were brought here to do.
