Life on the lam leads the Baudelaires to a horrifying hospital with an enormous library that could hold the answers to all of their questions.
- For Beatrice –
- Summer without you is as
cold as Winter.
- Winter without you is even
Having run out of gas, the Baudelaires are forced to enter Last Chance General Store for help. They attempt to use a telegraph machine to contact Mr. Poe, however, Count Olaf suddenly appears. They evade Olaf and his troupe by sneaking into a van labeled VFD. They are unexpectedly welcomed in by a group of optimists called Volunteers Fighting Disease who are on their way to Heimlich Hospital. The Baudelaires learn from the group that there is, supposedly, a Library of Records in the hospital that collects esoteric records which could help them and answer their questions. The Baudelaires also think that the hospital could be a safe place to hide from Olaf.
After sneaking past the hospital's administration head and human resources manager Babs, the Baudelaires meet Hal who runs the Library of Records, who welcomes their help, but he only allows them to help sort incoming material but not to read anything already there. The children quickly gain Hal's trust. While being shown the ropes, a film reel labeled "Snicket File" arrives; Hal says he has a secret process where he stores similar records.
Meanwhile, believing the Sugar Bowl is somewhere in the hospital, Olaf and his troupe take the role of doctors and nurses, and scare Babs as to seize control of the hospital, giving Olaf time to find the Baudelaires and Esmé to find the Sugar Bowl.
The children decide to steal Hal's keys to access the Library, where they find the film, which contains a debriefing by Jacques Snicket that reports someone may have survived a fire. The Baudelaires suspect this may mean one of their parents had survived the Baudelaire Mansion fire. However, they are interrupted by Esmé, and as they try to escape, the Library is ruined. Violet is captured by Olaf while Klaus and Sunny hide in the air vents.

- When the Baudelaires are in the van with the Volunteers Fighting Disease, the subtitles are pink with a bouncing heart. This is probably a reference to the lyric video of Katy Perry's Chained to the Rhythm which also features pink subtitles, although it has a bouncing hamster.
- Count Olaf smashing lightbulbs is a homage to some scene in A Clockwork Orange.
- The white-faced women in the hallway is a reference to the film The Shining.
- When the Baudelaires searched the library of records, one of the sub-sections is Jabberwocky, a story by Lewis Carroll.

Deviations from the novel
- In the TV series, the Baudelaires arrive at Last Chance because they stole a firetruck in the last episode. In the book, they arrive on foot.
- In the TV series, in the general store, the Baudelaires decide to try to contact Jacquelyn since unlike the book, Mr. Poe did not believe the Baudelaires and visited them in jail to give them a final goodbye. In the book, they decide to try to contact Mr. Poe and try to convince him that they are innocent and need help.
- In the TV series, their telegram is interrupted by Count Olaf who gives chase. In the book, Olaf does not appear so the Baudelaires have time to send the telegram, however, Milt and Lou obtain the latest Daily Punctilio article and recognize them, prompting them to flee.
- Heimlich Hospital, in the TV series, is about two thirds the way finished, with only the tower on the right under construction. In the books, the hospital is literally split down the middle, with one half being completed, and the other, not.
- Count Olaf and his troupe decide not to kill Babs in the TV series. Instead, she is tied up and locked in a closet. In the books, Olaf, disguised as Mattathias, claims she took up a career as a stuntwoman, and started jumping off buildings.
- Also, Babs is seen throughout the TV series, whereas in the book, only her voice was heard.
- On a related note, Count Olaf shows up in the Library of Records and can be seen throughout, while only his voice was heard until Violet's surgery in the book.
