THE WORLD OF OAKDALE
Ben arrives at Windy Falls Medical with a million and some questions for Dr. Dagar. The receptionist's shady behavior after he asks to speak with the good doctor about Chris Hughes makes Ben re-think his coming there. Dr. Dagar arrives and offers help for anything Ben needs. Ben asks if he knows why Chris Hughes was terminated and Dr. Dagar replies shockingly that Dr. Hughes was partially involved in the death of an elderly patient. After he was uncooperative during questioning, he was put on probation and terminated from their facility. Ben thanks Dr. Dagar for all of his assistance.

A quick scan around the Grant-less lobby has Emma and Lisa both baffled and dis-heartened. Lisa and Emma make up something and Susan doesn't fall for it.

Susan angrily shouts that this is ridiculous and begins to march out, but she runs smack into Grant.
Barbara returns from her lunch break to find Dana snooping at her desk, scurriedly flipping through files and papers. Barbara asks the new employee what she thinks she's doing and Dana is at a loss for words. Barbara grows even agrier when Dana still doesn't respond and fires her on the spot. As soon as she leaves, a down-but-not-out Dana applauds herself on getting the information she needed as she tucks away a folder she snatched from Barbara's desk. Later, Barbara becomes frustrated when one of her employees comes in and needs a file from the 1997 Baltimore runway show (to try and contact a former costume designer) and Barbara can't find it.
