    The drug addicted lawyer convinces Casey to give her a grain of morphine - sort of harm-reduction treatment. When Zorba finds out he states that with that much an elephant could stomp on someone (or a mouse), I believe, and they wouldn't feel it. Then when her supply is cut off, she cons a sensitive boy into being her link to her connection. When Casey finds out she talked about poetry with him and gave him a copy of a Shropshire Lad he snarls, "A Shropshire Lad - you didn't just lean on 'em. You fell on 'em like a ton of bricks!'

    Turns out the boy has other, more serious issues - he's been beating his injured mother who's also a patient.moreless
