Admit desk. Dave gives Jing-Mei "Day" Chen guff for doing paperwork when they have patients waiting. Chen informs him with an air of fatigue that she isn't even on yet, then adds that she's doing chart reviews for Carter's and Lucy's patients. Dave apologizes and offers to help; she turns him down. Elsewhere, Abby is on the phone, reciting test results to Luka; Kerry says into Abby's other ear that she has a couple of interesting cases for her, including a foreign body up the nose (heh) and hemorrhoids (bleh).
On the other end, Luka makes "good, good" noises into his cellphone while driving, says the patient should follow up with cardiology, mentions ruefully that he has the night shift all week, and says he'll see Abby tomorrow. A ball rolls out into the street Luka is driving down -- do kids even play with balls anymore? -- and he looks annoyed and hits the brakes, and a kid chases the ball out into the street as her friend shouts, "Laura!" A shot from outside the car reveals that Luka drives a Saab. Luka owns a Saab? And a cellphone? Who'd he sell his boat to, anyway -- George Soros? Anyway, Luka stops about a foot short of the kid, and she pauses for a second to look at him before continuing across the street after the ball, and just then another car pulls around to pass Luka's car and hits the kid, and she slides up the windshield and tumbles to the ground in front of the other guy's car. Luka stares into the other guy's car and gets a good look at him before the other guy throws it in reverse and peels out. Luka jumps out of the Saab to go help the girl, and as he gets out, the other guy roars past, and Luka yells at him to stop, but the car disappears as Luka kneels beside the girl, who is moaning in pain, and tells her that he's a doctor and he's going to help her. He tells her to breathe easy and asks her name and where it hurts. She wails, "Laura -- my leg!" He holds her face and tells her to keep her head still. I add "go to Chicago and wander around in traffic" to my to-do list.
