Island of Terror

Not a very pretty sight.
I intend to make
the first incision here. Agreed?

Here's something interesting.
There are a series of minute
punctures in this dermal segment.

That's odd.
Let's collect segments
from other parts of the body.

Try staining it with eosin.
- It's the same with all of them.
- They're all over the body.

I've never seen anything
like these punctures before.

Could something have entered
the body through them?

- Like what, for instance?
- It's possible some enzyme

was introduced into the body
through the punctures.

If they are punctures. I can't tell
if they're punctures or ruptures.

Something came out or some organism
producing an enzyme went in.

There's no trace of calcium
phosphate in the body.

Then this enzyme,
or whatever it is,

seems to attack and break down
the calcium phosphate.

A major component of human bone.
We don't know
if there's a connection

between the perforations
and the absence of bone.

They could be two evidences
of a similar syndrome.

We'll have to assume it.
If we only had more complete

There's Philips' lab,
but I don't know if he'll talk to us.

- He'll talk to me.
- How well equipped is he?

I've never seen it,
but I believe it's complete.

Don't say the lights
are going to fail.

We've had trouble
with the generator.

- Let's get out to Philips' place.
- All right.

I'd better leave a note
for Constable Harris at his house.
