After the commercial, the whole crowd is making the final adjustments on a stabilized Mr. Barnes. Romano wanders in to bust Benton's chops for operating in the trauma room; Benton tells him, essentially, that if he'd waited for an open OR, Mr. Barnes would be dead. Romano rides Benton some more as they take the patient up for proper surgery. Dr. Dave remarks, "You've got to admit that was pretty cool." Lisa stands alone in the empty (but for all kinds of trash on the floor) trauma room, looking bewildered.
Darnell is continuing to hold his hard line against Carter, who shows up carrying a product-placed blue iBook. Carter puts the computer in front of Darnell and suggests that the problems he's having at school might be related to the troubles he's having with his motor skills, and that working on a computer might help him to keep up with the other kids. Darnell brats that his school is "full of losers," and bats the iBook onto the floor, sarcastically saying, "Oops." Carter busts out the tough love, asking Darnell if he feels better, and whether he wants to smash something else. Darnell starts pushing things around and knocking other things over, and Carter goads him: "Is that the best you can do?" To distill an unnecessarily long, hackneyed scene into a slightly shorter summary, Carter and Darnell smash up the joint, and then Carter hands Darnell a pad and paper and asks Darnell to write his name. Darnell awkwardly grips the pen, but then hands both implements back to Carter because he's tired of people trying to help him, and he can do things for himself. Then he starts crying about how humiliating his MD is. Oh, do you feel like a big man now, John? Carter agrees with Darnell that he is not, in fact, a baby, and says he's going to go get Mrs. Henry, but that while he's gone, Darnell should clean the room up. Darnell tearfully agrees. The hell? Well, whatever.
