Beyond the Headlines: Catching the Craigslist Killer

Genre: Documentary

-Hey, Philip.

-Hey, dude.

-What's up? Did you pass that midterm?

-Not really.

-Hey, Philip.

-Hey, what's up, Phil?

Thanks for lunch.

I'm really glad you guys

got to see the new clinic.

Are you kidding?

Think we'd come to Boston

and not see our girl?

We're so proud ofyou.

-Hey, Phil, I need your help on my cadaver.


I've been trying for, like, six hours

to find the posterior thoracic nerve,

and if I don't dig it up soon,

Lenhoff is gonna cut me open.

Yeah, I know. Posterior thoracic is a b*tch.

I need... Janet!

Janet, love, we need you. Come here.

Why don't I like the sound of that?

It's all in the interest of science, dear.

-Trust me?


Put your left hand up. Tom, pay attention.

You just dig behind...

Sorry my hands are cold.

Dig behind the scalenus medius,

then you move aside the brachial plexus,

and then slide down to the serratus anterior.

And there you have it. Posterior thoracic.

You finished, Philip?

Yes. I thank you.

Science thanks you. Tom here thanks you.

I thank you.

All right, you guys. I gotta go study, okay?



Any thoughts on why

we're seeing shortness of breath,

Iethargy and dizziness in a 7-year-old?

Eisenmenger Syndrome.

I mean, that would go with

the pulmonary hypertension.

That's a bit of a leap, Mr. Markoff.

But assuming your hypothesis is correct,

then why are we seeing the low heart rate,

the diminished reflex and a lack of affect?

Perhaps the fact

that a 7-year-old boy is alone

and his parents wouldn't bother to be

with him when he's in the hospital.

Personalizing, Philip?

No, sir.

Here you are, baby.

I had to go all the way to the CVS on

Commonwealth to get you the cherry kind.

It'll be right here waiting for you

when you wake up.

There's a lesson for you all.

Things are not always

what they appear to be,

and even the remarkable Mr. Markoff

isn't perfect.

All right, guys. Next patient.

I only torture you,

because when every

major hospital comes clamoring

for you to do your residency with them,

I want you to realize that this place

recognizes your talent

and is gonna push you to be even better.

Also, l... Well, I kind of like torturing you.


Don't turn around.

What part of "don't turn"

-didn't you understand?


He is locked in.

I think he's looking at you.

No. He is definitely looking at you.

-I don't think so.


He could not get cuter

if he was holding a teddy bear and a puppy.

-Mr. Markoff?


I need your genius.

He likes you.

Butene... Aromatic?



Aromatics are tough.


I can never figure out

which electrons to put where.

You wanna know a trick?

Don't memorize, diagram.

I'm Philip, by the way. Markoff.

We actually met the other day for a second.

Well, we didn't really meet.

We just kind of bumped.


I'm Megan McAllister.

So, that's cool.

You're helping out at the clinic.

Yeah. And you're going to med school.

That I am.

That's cool, too.

Yeah, I should really be going,

'cause I have to study.

I have this huge test in 17 hours.

Wait. You've got a test tomorrow,

and you are studying?

Yeah. That's what people do.

No, not me.

Okay, so what do you think

I should be doing?

I think you should be cutting loose,

airing out your brain.

Right. Right.

So, when I fail the test tomorrow,

can I write that theory in

at the essay portion

of my medical school applications?

Where you applying?

Here, he asks hopefully?

Probably, but I probably won't get in.

They really would be lucky to have you.

-You don't even know me.

-Oh, my God. That's true.
