Hank arrives back at the marina aboard Jim Harper's boat where Dr. Nina Greene awaits them. The two men have been searching for Jack O'Malley in some of his favorite fishing spots with no luck. Jim is having some pain above his eye and Hank diagnoses it immediately and uses some ice from the cooler to temporarily relieve the pain until he can prescribe some medication for the problem. Jim pays him in the usual fashion, fresh fish. Nina asks him if he knows any of Jack's other friends that might know where he is and Hank says he knows one...

Episode Quotes
Hank: No luck. Jack's not at any of the fishing spots Jim knew about.
Dr. Nina Greene: All of my calls are still going to voicemail.
Jim Harper: He must be on further out, he's not answering his radio.

Jim Harper: Usual payment okay, Doc?
Hank: Usual is perfect.
Dr. Nina Greene: Fish? I've never seen a doctor paid so promptly.
Hank: And no paperwork.

Hank: You got the gift, right?
Evan: The christening's in a few hours and you remind me of this now?
Hank: You didn't get it. (Evan grabs a blanket) You got it!

Hank: (To Boris) You seem to be free and clear of any symptoms, genetic or otherwise.

Hank: You do have a genetic mutation. Whether that means you'll eventually become symptomatic is...
Boris: ... a question. Suddenly my future is unwritten. Thank you Hank.

Jill: Jack, how are you feeling?
Jack O'Malley: Well, you know those drug commercials where a reassuring voice comes on at the end and talks about possible side effects, well it turns out these side effects are very possible, in fact they're probable even because I feel like I've got every last one of 'em.

Evan: Anything you want to share?
Divya: Not that I can think of.
Evan: Really? How about your love life, how's that going?
Divya: Hmmm. (stares angrily at Evan)
Evan: Alright, I saw you and Raj earlier. Are you guys back together? Is it because of your family? Or is it Raj, is he pressuring you?
Divya: It is nothing for you to worry about.

Evan: No ones's here.
Divya: Need I point out that we are in fact here?
Evan: Seriously, where is everybody else? HankMed can't be the only people Boris and Marisa know.
Hank: Marisa's family is in Cuba, and Boris's family...
Evan: ... greedy murderers.
Hank: If you were him, you'd err on the safe side too.

Dr. Nina Greene: Hank I have not been outside of the hospital this much since I started working in a hospital.
Hank: Welcome to concierge medicine.
Dr. Nina Greene: I gotta say, it's not bad.

Evan: Here's what I've been thinking.
Divya: Five truly terrifying words.
Evan: I've given this a lot of thought. So as you know, HankMed is a family business, founded by two brothers and a Divya.
Divya: Yes, I remember.
Evan: In all this time, you have become not only one of my closest friends, but also part of my family. And when you broke off your marriage with Raj, it was one of the most courageous things I've ever seen. And what did it get you? Your parents cut you off, and his parents stuck you with the wedding bill, it's not right.
Divya: Thank you Evan, truly. But friends lending friends money never ends well.
Evan: How about family lending family money?
Divya: Worse.
Evan: I knew you'd say that and I'm nothing if not prepared so here's my pitch. I buy your one third stake in HankMed.
Divya: Ahh, Evan...
Evan: It's not a loan.
Divya: That is very generous, but I brought up selling my shares to Hank and he said that I should keep them.
Evan: And I totally agree. The moment you can buy them back, they're yours again. In the meantime I promise to take very good care of them. Just think about it. You have two minutes.
visual: Divya looks at Evan with exasperation.

Dr. Nina Greene: How's Jack?
Hank: (to Jill and Nina) It happened so fast. He went septic. And we couldn't catch up. We lost him. Jack's dead.

Cultural References
Boris: (to Hank) I'm back for less than a day, and already you have me in your Frankenstein's laboratory.

Frankenstein is a novel written by Mary Shelley in 1818 about a scientist who creates a monster in his laboratory.

Episode References
Boris: (to Hank) I've been investigating your theory that... our history of illness may have been a result of shall we say, family politics.

In episode 3x08, Run, Hank, Run, Hank discovers that Boris had been slowly poisoned over many years.
