Carter trots into Dimon's room. "Marcus Welby, am I gonna live?" D shouts merrily. Carter nods. He notices that Dimon has a friend in the room, an oddly skulled dude in a brown patchwork coat. His name is CC, and he's the quiet, steady one to Dimon's flashy, braggadocious nature. Carter reveals that Dimon's spine tests came back just fine -- but his urine is cloudy. Dimon's face darkens. "That why it burns when I whiz?" he asks. Carter nods. It's chlamydia. CC stiffens and stares out the window into the lobby. He turns his head slightly to listen. At this point, the plot "twist" is so obvious, you could see it through a brick wall. "You git dat from nasty booty, right?" Dimon asks. "Nasty booty": best phrase ever. Dimon insists that Aisha is clean, and that he doesn't cheat on her; CC bites his lip and keeps mum, clearly hiding something. Carter orders up an HIV test, which he claims is standard in cases like these. "Whatever, man," Dimon shrugs. "Hey, can I get some more pudding?" Wow, we could've just found a title for an Oz episode, or something -- "Nasty Booty: Can I Get Some More Pudding?"
Carter passes Abby in the lobby and comments, over her protests, about how tired she seems. "I was up most of the night," Abby moans. "Not for fun." Carter smirks, joking that he's pretty sure it's not a coincidence that Frank is also "a little drag-ass" today. "You caught me," sighs Abby. "I was up all night slapping Frank's ass raw...You haven't seen him sit down today, have you?" I laughed out loud at that, even though Frank's cherry-red ass isn't high on my list of must-see landmarks. Carter chews on this, then brightly calls out to Frank, "Have you sat down today? Are you feeling sore at all?" Abby stifles a considerable snicker as Frank, puzzled, gapes at them, pretty sure they're talking shit about his nasty booty. Carter picks up the phone to call Stephen; he arranges to meet his father at the airport for lunch.
Weaver wanders into Reception, only to hear from Frank that Romano wants her up in his office right away. Wincing, Weaver sidles up to Carter and lightly wonders why Chen is at the hospital. "Deb's here?" Carter says, trying to feign surprise. He lies that he hasn't spoken to her recently, and blesses CC a million times over for showing up and changing the subject. CC urgently whispers to Carter that he wants a chlamydia test. "It's only contagious through sexual conduct," Carter assures him. "Right," CC says, clearing his throat and studying the linoleum. Carter's eyes bug out. "RIGHT, okay, right," Carter realizes, thinking CC and Aisha have been revving the chainsaw in secret. He has Abby do up a new chart.
