She also tells the doctor that ever since the car accident, she is not "comfortable" with sex, but she does not believe the accident is the cause, she believes the image of the blue-eyed man is the cause, but she can't tell Richard because she's afraid that he will leave her "I already make his life so difficult.
She tells the doctor about the blue-eyed man in the waiting room and he says she must be mistaken, he never has his patients wait together. He takes her to the waiting room and, sure enough, no one is there. Jane asks Barbara if she saw a man in the waiting room and she says yes, he wasn't a patient, but he wanted to talk to the doctor.
