The still be-spleened Susan lies in her hospital bed, sleeping, as beside her Karl laughs himself hoarse over Dr. Ron's note. Susan finally wakes up and asks what's so funny. Karl: "I'm just enjoying the silky smooth moves of Dr. Ron, or should I say 'Doctor LOVE'?" Susan makes a grab for the note, but Karl yanks it out of range. Karl reads aloud his favorite selection with faux-sincerity: "'I can't wait to be with you in the operating room, so I can touch your heart, because you've already touched mine so deeply.'" Susan admits that it sounds better when read with an inside voice. Karl asks Susan if she likes Dr. Love as much as she likes him. Susan, with not an ounce of enthusiasm: "Of course I do. He's smart and funny and kind." Karl notes that he doesn't "hear the word 'love'" in Susan's list. Susan, with uncustomary sanity: "Well, that's a big word. We just started dating. We have a connection, and I'm going to follow it through and see where it goes." Karl, translating: "You're going to string him along until you feel something you don't, and you're going to waste the next five years of your life." Susan: "As opposed to the twelve years I wasted on you?" Point: Susan. Besides, Susan points out that she never asked Karl's advice in the first place, and he starts poking her and saying she's his wife again, which means he has "certain rights," including the right to "badger" Susan. Susan invites him to leave, and Karl emotes, "I wish I could MRI your soul." Susan: "Out!" Karl staggers out, still laughing. In the hall, he runs into crazy Nurse Negligence, and for some reason he feels compelled to tell her, "Watch out for my wife, she's on a tear." Nurse N's face goes from upside-down to frown.
