On July 2 1921 Emily Schroeder is diagnosed with polio and quarantined in the children's hospital. Margaret Schroeder, Katy and Lillian collect Emily’s things at her home.

Katy and Lillian wear masks to cover their faces and place the collected possessions on a bonfire outside. Margaret watches from the window with Teddy. Pauline comes downstairs with a case packed. Margaret asks where she is going and Pauline apologises. Margaret tries to reassure her that they are taking every precaution. Pauline says that she has to worry about her own children and leaves. Teddy watches the fire from the window as Emily’s favourite doll is consumed by the flames. ("Battle of the Century")
