Cole's recurring dream, um, recurs. We see a few extra glimpses—but not much.
He wakes up in the mental hospital. Goines joins Cole to give him a lecture on how crazy is simply not being a part of majority rule.
He cites the example of Ignaz Semmelweis as proof.
Brain Snack: Semmelweis didn't come up with a working germ theory as Goines suggests. However, he did pioneer the idea that doctors should wash their hands and sterilize their instruments between jobs. You know, like don't operate on a patient immediately after an autopsy.
Although Semmelweis was right, he also wasn't very popular, so no one took his idea seriously and countless people died as a result.
Fun fact to spice up to your brain snack: Semmelweis died of an infection after being committed to a mental institution (source).
Goines suggests he can help Cole escape the mental hospital.
Cole wonders why Goines doesn't just go, but Goines says his father is coming for him soon so he's all taken care of.
