Mark and Benton sit in traffic. Mark drones on about the stresses on Elizabeth: "Between the weather, and her mother, and her father, who I've yet to meet...." Benton's all cool, "He's okay." Mark squeaks, "You know him?" Benton says he met him. Mark covers, "That's right." He quickly changes the subject to the shitty traffic, and then back to Dr. Corday, père. Benton promises that Papa Corday is nice. Mark complains about Mama Corday, and Benton chuckles, agreeing. There's some brief Mars/Venus shit about "women and their mothers," and Mark and Benton both declare that they both got along famously with their own mothers. Mark surmises, "Must be a chick thing." Please, tell us all more of your insights, M. le Divorcé. No? Thought not. Benton seems to grow weary of Mark's brand of small talk (as who would not?), so Mark changes the subject to Finch's mom. That line of inquiry doesn't really go anywhere. Much like the car, which continues to sit in traffic.
County. Chen stitches the lacerated chin of a young woman with tattoos all over her cheek and neck. Tattoo Annie asks whether the stitches will leave a scar, and Chen snorts, "Not that you'd notice." Lily comes down the hall and tells Chen there's a hypothermic ten-year-old coming in. Chen is just starting to give some preparatory instructions when a woman's voice calls out, "Close the exits!" Seconds later, Sara comes tearing around the corner like a bat out of hell, with the mean guard in close pursuit. Medical personnel get out of the way of the chase, and it doesn't take long for them to detain Sara by knocking her onto the floor. Chen asks what happened, and Haleh tells her that Sara jumped off the table in x-ray and took off running. As the struggle continues on the floor, one of the guards complains that Sara bit him. Chen tries to intercede, telling the guards that they're hurting Sara. Eventually, they cuff her hands behind her back, as Sara continues crying for her daughter. Chen frowns.
