Det svimlet for Bjørn Hansen. At ingen hadde sett det. Det var jo så opplagt. Men det var opplagt nå, bare fordi dr. Schiøtz hadde snakket i dette gira språket. o. Bjørn Hansen innså det nå bare fordi dr. Schiøtz hadde gitt ham en invitt ti! a innse det. Dette gjorde et så voldsomt inntrykk på ham at han knapt visste hva han foretok seg. Han så vantro på dr. Schiøtz som satt der bak skrivebordet, i sin legekittel, med sine tynne fingre, og fingret med stetoskopet, og med sitt milde fraværende blikk.
Han gikk til bunns, men hun nektet å bli med ham til bunns. Hun vrikket på svansen i stedet, og publikum glemte for en stakket stund denne talentløse forestilling, og lot seg villig forføre av Turid Lammers. Hun stjal scenen. Bjørn Hansen spilte traust videre på sin ferd mot sitt prosjekts endelikt, mens Turid spilte ut all sin charme. Hun sto der, i prosjektørenes barmhjertige lys, med et tjukt lag av sminke i ansiktet, og var opprømt over at hun tok publikum med storm, ja hun skalv over hele seg, det kunne Bjørn som sto henne meget nær tydelig se.
Bjørn Hansen nikket. Dr. Schiøtz lyttet på Bjørn Hansens bryst med sitt stetoskop. Stillferdig, fjern, som alltid. Men plutselig sa han: - Hvor mange pasienter tror du jeg har hatt? I hele livet? Bjørn Hansen ristet på hodet, forbauset over spørsmålet. Han visste ikke hva han skulle si. Dr. Schiøtz så plutselig rett på ham, intenst, men med sitt evig fraværende blikk, som alle hadde tolket som tilbaketrukkenhet og beskjedenhet. - Å fa inn en helfrisk patient, det kan vel ikke kalles tilfredsstillende fra en leges synspunkt.
