...no good deed goes unpunished.

It's a chance I'll have to take.

Code blue!

If you expect me to jump on a chair,

don't hold your breath.

How about a piece of cheese?

Help me.

"Dear Dr. Dodgson.

You are a talented doctor...

...a caring person,

and under no circumstances.

...should you blame yourself

for Jenny's death.

However, by prescribing Raptomycin.

...and disobeying my specific instructions...

...you have compromised

this institution's legal standing.

I have no choice but to recommend

that your license be suspended.

...for no less than two years.

Yours, Dr. Javitz. "

Dr. Javitz.

Yes, it's... it's Alice Dodgson.

Yeah, I'm calling to...

to ask you for a favor...

...if you think that's appropriate.

Um, I realize that I can't practice

medicine for the next two years...

...but there is a medical referral service...

...and they're offering

an overseas position.

which doesn't require a license.

Yeah, the patient was diagnosed

with atypical lymphocytosis...

...slipped into a coma twice last year.

Lives in Jamaica

in some out of the way place.

They want someone

to give supportive care.

Well, I'm calling you because...

'Cause I...

Well, they do ask for a reference.

And although I do have other references...

I... I think that they should know

why I had my license suspended.

...before they decide whether or not

they want to hire me.

Welcome. Welcome.

Welcome. Welcome to Jamaica.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Hey. How you doin'?

I am fine, baby girl.

And you're very fine, too, you know.

But me at work now.

Normally, I would love

to make your acquaintance.

...and show you a good time...

...but me have to work.

I'm... I'm Dr. Dodgson.

I'm J.B. I'm sorry. Can I help you?

No, I'm fine.

- Yes.

- Actually, very fine.
