The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
Dr. William Burroughs is named after writer William S. Burroughs. As Rose is healing from the procedure, Dr. Burroughs actually listens to a recording of "Advice For Young People", in which the author William S. Burroughs talks about psychic vampires: "If, after having been exposed to someone's presence, you feel as if you've lost a quart of plasma, avoid that presence. You need it like you need pernicious anemia. We don't like to hear the word 'vampire' here. Trying to improve our PR. 'Interdependence' is the keyword. Enlightened interdependence. Life in all its rich variety. Take a little; leave a little. However, by the inexorable logistics of the vampiric process, they always take more than they leave."
Dr. Keloid says the accident punctured Rose's abdomen, but the bandages are on her chest.
