Titre original : Flowers from the Heart
Dr. Robson intercedes when the police transport Charlie out of the hospital: the patient is still too fragile and risk for infection too great. Charlie gets his own private room and Candy as sole caretaker. Eliza requires Candy to pay the hospital bill for Charlie, and if she cannot pay she will require Pony's Home to cough up the hefty sum. Candy meets a patient who makes her living from making fake flowers for the theatre, and tries her own hand at it to solve her present money issue. When Charlie witnesses her making the flowers he confronts her about her motives and reveals his mother used to make such flowers. She worked in a factory in the day and made flowers at night to support him, before he ran away to fend for himself. Meanwhile, a reporter who wishes an interview with Terry about his double alerts Terry of what has happened in Chicago. Since Charlie is a friend of his from his past, he sends Candy a check to pay for Charlie's medical bill. When next Candy visits Charlie, she finds him gone, leaving her two fake flowers he made, just as he used to for his mother. Charlie has been taken to the prison's infirmary.
