8:07 PM. On speakerphone, Romano yells at Elizabeth to get up to surgery. Elizabeth yells back that she'll be there as quickly as she can, and that she's with a critical patient. Romano yells at her to find someone else now. Melted Mask Man has apparently stabilized, and Elizabeth tells Carter to run some additional tests and find him a burn-unit bed. Carter asks, "What about him?" and gestures to Nathan. Elizabeth says, "Yeah, what about him," and brushes past Nathan on her way out. Nathan hurries after her and gives her some test results for Melted Mask Man; he then asks whether she's headed up to surgery on the nec fash. Elizabeth says that she is. Nathan guesses that he can go home, then. Elizabeth says that she's done, but that he still owes eight hours. Nathan says that he's on rounds at 6 AM, but Elizabeth tells him, as she gets in the elevator, "Welcome to Surgery." The elevator doors close, and Nathan gives a tired sigh, then stretches his jaw muscles.
The other elevator doors open, and Terry (Melted Mask Man's partner) walks out. He tells Nathan that he's looking for someone who was brought in, and Nathan tells him to go to Admit. Terry looks confused, so Nathan offers to show him. Nathan asks who he's looking for, and Terry says he's looking for Melted Mask Man. Things are still very busy at Admit, where a nun asks Pratt to be directed to the victims of the fire. Pratt says, "Keep your habit on, my man. You'll get to be with your drag queen friends soon enough." The nun explains that she has food and housing vouchers for the displaced. Pratt apologizes. Nathan gets Pratt's attention and explains that Terry is with Melted Mask Man. Pratt gives a disgusted sigh. Could it be any more predictable that Pratt is a homophobe? Wouldn't it have been more interesting to have Gallant, or Luka, or someone who the audience doesn't already hate, exhibit homophobic tendencies?
Up in surgery, Romano observes Edson operating on Bug Bite Boy. Romano asks for some oil of wintergreen to mask the smell of rotting flesh, and then orders Edson to start cutting faster to stay ahead of the infection. Romano observes that the infection is in the muscle, and proceeds to backseat-operate. When Edson makes an incision that is too long for Romano's liking, he asks for Elizabeth, who is scrubbing up. Romano thinks she might be able to "debride this guy's wound without using a chainsaw." In the scrub room, Elizabeth calls her nanny and asks if the nanny can take Ella to her house while she finishes packing; Elizabeth promises to be home in an hour. Romano knocks on the window and makes angry gestures. Elizabeth settles things with the nanny while she scrubs up, and then drops her wedding ring down the drain. She tries not to panic as she asks a nurse to call Engineering. Dude, just tape off the drain and then remove the trap later to get the ring. Unless hospital have special non-trap pipes or something, it's not that difficult. Who has never dropped an earring or something down a sink drain? A nurse puts Romano on speakerphone, and he yells, "Lizzie, get your ass in here." Elizabeth explains that she's lost her wedding ring, and Romano replies, "Oh, boo hoo! This guy's about to lose a leg! I'd say chop chop, but that would be in extremely bad taste." I love Romano. Elizabeth asks a nurse to tape off the drain, and then screams at Romano that she's on her way in.
