Cut to the hospital. A young doctor shines a light into Jim's eyes and tells him to look up, down, et cetera. Dr. Young asks what, exactly, happened, and Susan jumps in to explain that it was "an accident." Jim: "Oh, I don't know about that: in some cultures head-butting is a mating ritual." Susan shoots Jim him a disgusted look. She asks "Dr. McCreedy" if she can "talk to him...away from [she looks over at Jim] the...draft." He tells her to call her "Dr. Ron" as they retreat into a corner. Susan begs Dr. Young to admit her for the night...anything, everything, whatever it takes to get her out of this, the worst date of her life. Dr. Young looks over at Jim, who's talking to a nurse while pulling the fingers of an inflated rubber glove. Susan, begging now, grabs Dr. Young by the lapels. She tells him that her "mental health" is at risk, and she reminds him that he "took an oath." He asks her to unhand him, and she looks down at his crumpled lab coat with surprise. "Sorry," she whispers as she pats and smoothes his shoulders. He tells her that as sorry as he is to hear that her date is a disaster, he still can't admit her. Dr. Young heads back over to the exam table to check Jim's reflexes. Jim tells him a joke (clearly Jim is socially broken): "What is the correct medical term for the circumcision of a rabbit?" The doctor cocks his eyebrows in the barest hint of a "go on," and Jim delivers the punch line: "Hare cut." Susan closes her eyes like, "Oh god, make it go away," while Dr. Young gives Jim the same blank look Susan wore throughout the date. Dr. Young: "Jim? I'm going to need to keep you here awhile...run some tests." But Susan is free to go. Susan looks so obviously happy to hear this news that even Jim catches wind of it, and his brow darkens into a "hey, wait a second" little furrow. MAVO: "And though it only lasted a moment, Jim caught the look that passed between his date [Susan smiles warmly at Dr. Young] and his doctor [Dr. Young winks back]. And [Jim] suddenly got the feeling the joke was on him." Yes, yes it was.
