In a trauma room, Paul is saying, "You're not allowed to be doing this to me." Yosh asks Malik, "Are you sure it's him?" and Malik replies in the emphatic affirmative. Weaver, now in scrubs, enters as Chen yells meds orders; Chen concludes by saying, "He's combative. He's agitated. I'm not taking any chances." Paul is still babbling incoherently. Weaver yells for someone to bring in the police detective. Paul yells, "I won't talk! I won't talk! I made promises to people!" and in his paranoid, delusional state -- coupled with his dark eyes and hair and prominent nose -- he really looks a lot like one-time West Wing recapper Sugar Larry. Weaver leans in to ask, "Paul, do you know where you are?" Paul demands, "Who told you my name?! I don't even know you!" Weaver asks, "Do you remember what happened?" Struggling with his restraints, Paul yells, "You can't trick me! I don't even know you!" Weaver leans back. Malik, conducting the physical exam, calls out, "No deformities," and Paul yells, "I'm not deformed!" Lisa, with a thermometer in his ear, calls out his temperature, and Paul manages to rear all the way up and growl, "Don't stick me!" Lisa jumps back a bit. Paul yells, "Don't stick me! They wouldn't stop sticking me!" Yosh comes forward and asks whether Weaver wants Haldol, but she's backed all the way to the door and doesn't say anything. Lisa watches her, looking alarmed. Yosh says Weaver's name again, and she orders both Haldol and saline and then pushes through the doors into the adjacent trauma room, where Mark is working on the industrial-trauma victim about whom no one, including Mark, cares. Because he isn't doing anything important, Mark asks Weaver if she's okay, and she tells him that the stabber is in the next room. They both look up to see Paul, still so juiced-up on adrenaline that he looks like he could easily break his restraints. Mark starts to ask her what's wrong with Paul, and she very firmly asks him to take it. Mark's patient is going to surgery, or somewhere -- whatever, so Mark goes in to work on Paul, who is still begging everyone not to stick him, and not to cut him.
This station ID features Carol Hathaway. Oh, so that's why this episode is so good! She's not in it!
Elizabeth sits on the floor in the hall, looking wrecked. Romano emerges from an OR and makes a Valentine's Day joke. Lucy is stable, and he congratulates Elizabeth on her good work. She asks how Carter is, and Romano tells her it took a while for the surgeons to stop the bleeding, but they ultimately salvaged his kidney, and are now working on a colostomy. Down the hall, a blonde woman we've never seen before tells Romano that the county supervisor's on the phone, having just heard what happened. Romano instructs her to the tell the supervisor he's in surgery, but she says she already told the supervisor he was out of surgery. Romano sarcastically yells, "Thank you! Appreciate that!" and she totally gives him the hand. Heh. He goes to take the call, and Kit opens the door to tell Elizabeth that Lucy's waking up.
