The scene opens with a flashback to the beginning of the novel, when Mr. Nemo is still unconscious. He is shown the side of Nemo's body that is visible to the naked eye, and he is shown a side of the body that he will not be able to see because it is in front of him. The flashback is interrupted by the arrival of Mr. Sawyer, who has come to visit Nemo. He asks the boy if he is tired of him, and the boy tells him that he is. The boy asks if he can give him the medicine that he took from Nemo, and when the boy says yes, he gives the boy the medicine. He then tells the boy that he has taken the medicine and is ready to give it to Nemo. When the boy asks for the medicine, he is told that it is the same medicine that Nemo took when he first arrived in the U.S.
