Gamma then turns to Carter and reminds him of Thursday's board meeting to elect new foundation officers. "I always thought that was sort of a 'whoever's in the bathroom gets elected president' kind of thing," Carter cracks. Gamma rolls her eyes and tries to sway him by announcing that she wants him to run for Treasurer to replace his father. Carter's not enticed by this bone, which is understandable because it's a Gamma bone that involves math. "How did Dad get off so easy?" Carter smirks. Gamma drops the bomb that she's asking Carter's father to replace her as president. This stuns Carter, although it's hard to imagine why. It's not like Mrs. Carter, Queen Of The Glaciers is going to get the nod from Gamma. She's more likely to get a horse head in her bed. Carter is still silent. "Don't you think you're getting a bit long in the tooth for the disaffected youth role, John?" Gamma sighs. Carter stiffens and points out that he already has a day job, then stalks away in a right poor-little-rich-boy snit. Gamma is displeased, whereas Abby bites her prodigious lips and tries not to look terribly bothered by the fact that her date just ditched her with his disapproving grandmother and a plate of appetizers that might be canapés.
Luka and Weaver check out young David's wrecked arm. Weaver snaps at Luka for interrupting her assessment. Basically, the few lines they exchange are meant to convey her short temper with him. Weaver wants a head CT; Luka notices old bruises on the boy's body and asks for a long-bone survey. "First we have to rule out an intercranial bleed," Weaver insists curtly. Malik enters in search of Pratt; Jessie's potassium levels have dropped. Or risen. Honestly, who knows. They're at 3.2, if anyone out there is worried. Weaver orders treatment. "She's a DNR," Luka argues. " Yeah, and if she arrests, we let her go. Until then, we treat her," Weaver snits. "She's dead, Kerry," Luka counters. And for a second time this hour, Romano appears behind the door and raps on it to get attention. Dear God, does he do anything but knock, peer, and sneer? Kerry clearly doesn't appreciate the interruption. "This is a decision the husband should be making," Weaver insists. Luka points out the obvious: that Tom's in surgery with a massive slit in his abdomen that might prevent him from making any snappy decisions just this second. Weaver still maintains that if Luka had leveled with him, Tom might've given them clear instructions about his wife's treatment. "Now we have to decide," she brats. I think Luka did about as well as he could have with a very sick, clearly grieving man. He sensed that the man's judgment was impaired due to his sorrow and his medical condition and he did what he felt he needed to do to save the man's life. At any rate, Weaver elects to keep treating her until her heart gives out completely. Luka broods. What, you're surprised?
