One of your influences?
Yeah, Kim's work blends art with engineering
to express the pursuit of new desires.
Mine's meant to be experienced in the here and now.
But if the now is disruptive,
- I am happy to take a break. - Thank you.
Arty-boy wants to butter your scone.
- It's "Scahn." - Whatever.
He wants to put something on your biscuit.
In the first trial, the surgery extended
the longevity and quality of life
by weeks, sometimes months.
But the side effects are consistent
with chemo and radiation.
Only four small incisions are required,
so it's minimally invasive.
There could be...
uh, unpredictable complications as well.
To be clear, this treatment is experimental,
and we're still in the clinical-trial phase.
In one case, a patient developed something called
Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome...
which can cause a dangerously high fever.
So please understand-- we're not offering a cure,
but we can offer hope.
So feel free to think it over...
I want you to weigh the risks and the benefits.
And let us know.
So I'm gambling on living a few weeks longer
or dying even sooner?
The first trial had a 90% success rate, Evan.
Look, doc, you've been... straight with me on this whole ride.
If you were me, would you do it?
Look, uh, it's up to you, Evan,
but after what you went through in your last run of chemo,
I would probably take my dog on a road trip.
Then that's my answer.
Okay, A, you don't have a dog,
and, two, this trial may give us a chance
to extend the lives of our patients
and find innovative treatments.
What--You should be excited about this.
I am excited about this.
It's just-- Evan's made his peace.
He asked me for the truth, and I gave it to him.
And all those others-- they made their own decisions.
No, no, after you talked them out of it.
What's the first thing we learn about terminal patients?
They all want the same thing--more time.
This procedure can give them that.
And--and it's your specialty.
You could climb up the ranks, become head of your department.
Hold on a second.
Is this about advancing our careers?
You--you think I became CIO to advance my career?
I took this job to have access to funding
for research and breakthroughs
and hopefully better treatments and cures.
So what this is really about, Pierce,
is the same thing we both want--
better lives for our patients.
I get that, but what about "do no harm"?
We're supposed to give them a good life while we can.
Shouldn't that include a good death too?
I don't know who I'm talking to.
Right now your peer, Alex.
Then you'll understand why I'm doing this trial...
with or without you.
Hey, we should--
It's jet lag.
Yeah, I-I-I mean, I'm not trying to talk anybody into anything.
I was making a solid medical case.
It sounds like Pierce was doing exactly the same as you,
just from a different point of view.
It doesn't make him wrong. It just pisses you off.
You know how important this trial is to me?
Only now I have zero participants.
Why are you taking his side?
I'm not taking his side.
Now that I've had a chance
to get to know your boyfriend a little bit better,
I can tell he's a damn good doctor.
Did I just hear quotes around "boyfriend",
the way you said it just now?
Oh, my God, only if you put them there.
I mean, you and Pierce are good together.
He's a good balance for you.
"Balance"? What are you--
You'd be the first to admit that you can be impossible.
Pierce is good for you.
You should cut him a bit of slack
and realize there's nothing wrong
with his way of looking at things.
So you are taking his side.
It's good doctoring to know when enough's enough.
Alex, sometimes prolonging a patient's life
at the expense of their well-being
isn't the right way to go.
You of all people should know that.
So, yeah, philosophically,
I agree with Pierce.
Intellectually, I'm with you.
When it comes to the bigger picture
and the benefits of a trial like this,
we're both playing the long game.
I'm not playing any game.
And you're way out of line,
commenting on my relationship with Pierce.
So if you and I are gonna work together,
keep it professional.
There's only one way you and I can work together.
You need to get over me.
And then we can keep it professional.
Of all the arrogant and condescending and...
"Oh, yeah, you and Pierce are so great together."
And I need to get over him?
Why don't you get over yourself...
I was never here.
What if he's right?
She's great. What is she, around 7?
No, she's 13.
She still loves the park.
That's great. Have a good day.
Just the person I was looking for.
