Firstly, its just easier to SAY 8 million than 8.7 million, so I don't think what she said meant anything.Originally Posted by ArchieComic Fan;2224987;
Secondly, she neglected to deposit the check for a long time, as we know, so she's got a lot less interest that she would have.
Third, she paid for that girl's operation in a previous episode. I don't recall the amount, but 3/4 of a mil would not be an uncommon figure for a really complex operation and after care.
Fourth, its kind of bull that what we saw of a clinic cost $8 million. Also, it seems to me what someone would actually do with a real clinic is to line up other doners based on having a CORE of $8 mil in the bank collecting interest for the charity you've set up to administer the clinic. The clinic would be funded by interest AND other donations.
