Improve it a bit.

That's what we all say...

until the third time

you're stabbed with a pencil.

Point taken.

When did you

start working here?

Last year.

I served the same

internship you did.

So you graduated last year?

You're a year older than me.

Which means you have

to do everything I say.

Come on. I'll be your

tour guide today.

This is B ward.

Group therapy's in there.

Showers, med station.

We keep it locked

for obvious reasons.

Also we keep some low

security risk patients here.

Ladies' rooms.

Your duties will range

from monitoring patients...

sitting on

group therapy sessions...

to assisting staff.

Speaking of which, brace

yourself. Nurse Hendricks.


- You must be Clark.

- Yes, indeed. Nice to meet you.

- He's the new intern.

- Of course he is.

I'm Anabelle Hendricks,

head nurse.

- Pleasure.

- I wondered where you went to.

Seems to be a regular

occurrence lately.

I'm sorry, I haven't

been feeling well.

You'll assist Nurse Hendricks

as well as other staff.

- I look forward to it.

- So do I.

It will be nice to have

a little muscle here.

May I speak with

you in the office, please?


He's been up there...

for months.

Who has?

- We need to change the prescription.

- I signed off on everything.

You need to be there

at precisely...


Do you understand?

- Ready for more?

- Sure.

- Enjoy your stay here, Clark.

- Thank you very much.

What a bitch. Come on.

That's Crystal.

She's our resident


- Come on.

- Where are we going?

To the unpleasant part

of this job.

Where we keep

high-risk patients.

You won't often be asked

to come down here.

Trust me, it's a good thing.

What is it?

Housing for potential

murderers, lunatics...

Your everyday

garden-variety maniacs.
