Ellie raises her left arm in the air and notes that her left side still sort of works, which she takes as a good sign. Okay, if she can move her arm all around like that, couldn't she communicate by squeezing someone's hand? Like simple yes or no questions? Squeeze once for yes and twice for no? Just wondering. Ellie tries to move her right side with no success. Sam walks in and says that Ellie's heart rate is down. She peers at Ellie and asks, "You okay in there?" She could squeeze your hand to answer that one. Ellie complains that the tube in her throat hurts, and that she can't pee or walk. Sam tells her that she has gorgeous kids, and doesn't look like she's had three kids. Sam adds that the kids are in the family room. Ellie wonders why the kids aren't with her, and who is watching them, and where their father is. Ellie wrinkles her nose in disgust and asks, "Dear God, what is that?" Sam chuckles and says, "Yeah, pretty stinky, huh?" She looks over to the next bed, where an elderly woman is wearing a diaper. Sam goes over to change the woman's diaper. Ellie watches, probably wondering if that's what she has in store for the rest of her life. It was at this point that I had a talk with my husband about my health-care wishes, and reminded myself to get some paperwork sorted out. Because, seriously. That would be hell.
Malarkey, Chuny, and Shane are still treating Teargas Tito. Malarkey says, "Add a little police presence, throw a bottle or two, suddenly there's a whole lot of looting going on!" Tito asks what the odds are that he got hid. Shane continues the exam as Malarkey asks if Tito at least got a TV out of the deal. Tito gets angry and says that he was just walking by. Chuny and Shane give Malarkey dirty looks. Malarkey says, "Yep, running errands for Granny during a riot." Tito asks if Malarkey doesn't believe him, and Malarkey says that they've heard it all before, and looks to Chuny for backup. Chuny looks at him like, "Dude, you are on your own here." Malarkey issues the treatment orders, and Shane explains them to Tito kindly. Shane and Malarkey walk into the hall, and Malarkey tells Shane that the guy's full of crap, but Shane shouldn't worry, because it took Malarkey two years to learn how to spot the con artists. He walks off, and Shane looks at him like, "Dude, who thought there was someone on the show that could make me look good?"
