- Are you free for dinner tonight?

- No.

Oh, don't date your patients, huh?

I'm busy.

I've got a fundraiser

for the pediatric burns unit.

Lisa told me about that.

I think it's great.

Do you know you've done all my friends

with exact measurements?

Lisa, Susan and Tina, yeah.

- Did I turn out as good as they did?

- You all turned out very well.

Gosh, I haven't seen them in ages.

I just got back from Tahiti.

- Have you ever been to Tahiti?

- No.

Oh, come on. It's great.

- You should go.

- Will you sit still?

Dr. Roberts, Lieutenant Masters

from the police is here to see you.

You really should pay

those parking tickets.

You know what I do?

I cry, and they let me off.

Crying probably

wouldn't work for you, huh?

Okay, you're fine. Get out of here.

Send Lieutenant Masters to my office.

- And you behave yourself.

- Oh, I always do.

And it is so boring.

I keep hoping for a little excitement

in my life.

You know, like a handsome doctor.

- Good luck, Cindy.

- Bye.

I appreciate your time, Dr. Roberts.

Not at all. What can I do for you?

I want to ask about two

of your former patients...

...Lisa Convey and Susan Wilson.

What about them?

Anything you can tell me.

They're both dead.


Last week, Susan smashed her car

into a freeway pylon.

And Lisa jumped

from her apartment balcony last night.

We're just following up.

Well, there's not much I can tell you.

They were attractive girls

who worked in commercials.

They wanted specific cosmetic changes.

In fact, they both brought in lists,

down to the millimeter.

And I performed the surgery.

- Lists? Isn't that unusual?

- Yes, it is.

Do you think these girls

would commit suicide?

I doubt it.

Sometimes we see a post-operative

depression syndrome...

...particularly with patients
