    Your son has the measles.
    Ms. Ellison
    Oh, the measles? Thank God. I thought it was something serious.
    Alex Lowe
    The measles are serious, Mrs. Ellison, and completely unnecessary. If you had followed my advice and had Max vaccinated, then we wouldn't be...
    Ms. Ellison
    We did what we thought was right. Okay, all that stuff out there how vaccines can lead to autism, how can they actually kill people!
