Mark's on a bus, placing a call on his cell phone. The bus is crowded. He drops his cell phone. The bus isn't moving. Mark makes his way to the front. The driver tells him the engine's seized, and that there's another bus on its way. Mark asks when, and is told, "When it gets here." Mark gets off the bus. His umbrella gets stuck in the bus doors as they close on him, and the umbrella breaks. He is just a modern-day Sisyphus, eh what? Sigh.
County. Chen inspects an x-ray, and announces that the lungs are fine, the neck is clear, and that NC&A doesn't have to wear the collar any longer. NC&A says she thinks she broke something "in here" (though we can't see what body part she's indicating), since she couldn't walk at all. Chen asks whether she has a pain in her abdomen, and NC&A says she does. The guard sarcastically observes, "Yeah, she hurts everywhere." Chen examines her belly and, based on NC&A's response, orders another test. She calls NC&A "Sara" (shout-out?) and tells her they're going to get an x-ray. The guard, still not buying it, tells Chen, "She's playing you, Doc." Chen unbuttons Sara's pants and, spotting the scar, asks, "You've had a C-section?" "Yeah, so?" Sara mumbles. Chen asks whether there's any chance that Sara could be pregnant now, and she says there isn't: "I got fixed after Diana. I got pictures. These cuffs!" The guard brusquely tells her to save it. Sara mewls that she's missing her visit with Diana now, and that she doesn't know when she'll see her next. Chen's heart grows three sizes and she asks, "Why?" Sara says that her sister's moving to Los Angeles, and that there's no one else to take care of Diana, who's seven. Sara says she has "four years mandatory" before she'll see her again. The guard pipes up that Sara should have thought of that before she broke parole. Sara ignores the guard and tells Chen she just wanted to see Diana today. "She's probably better off," opines the guard. Sara screams at him to shut up, contorting her body into ever more (apparently) painful positions. Sara starts crying. Chen says she'll come back after the x-ray. The mean guard twirls his moustache and then goes off to tie another prisoner to the El tracks.
Veronica's curtain area. They've wrapped a sheet around her torso, and Carter tells Rena to "keep giving resistance to the pressure I apply." Rena nods apprehensively.
