Yay! Frances Sternhagen's going to be on tonight! Malik slowly pushes a cart behind a lovely young lady puffing into a tube; he fully runs into Haleh, who barks, "Malik, how many times you going to pass by with the same cart?" Heh. Dr. Dave tells Malik about the vacant slot on his hockey team, and the totally busted Malik bitterly snaps, "Do I look like I play hockey?" As he takes off to make another circuit with his cart, Dr. Dave yells after him, "Well, what about your pal in Cards? Big East Indian dude? D'you know if he skates?" Mark overhears and butts in, saying that he played hockey in college and could fill in on Dr. Dave's team "in a pinch."
Dr. Dave all but says, "Whatever." Actually, he says, "Yeah, yeah, sure thing, G," which is almost even less respectful than "whatever" would have been. Dr. Dave chases after Malik and passes Jing-Mei "Deb" Chen, handing her the chart in his hands and really selling the patient: "Cute guy. Curtain Three. Daddy material. Just say thanks." Chen tries to give him back the chart but "Flat-Top" Frank distracts her by saying that her mother's been holding for ten minutes, and not very patiently. Chen implores Frank to tell her mother Chen's with a patient, but Frank primly replies, "Lying might be part of your job description. It's not part of mine." Chen reluctantly picks up the phone and tells "Mommy" that she's "been busy." Kerry "Four-Eyed, Bum-Legged, Flying Purple People Eater" Weaver arrives at the desk wearing the very C.J. Cregg-ish ensemble of an olive-green power pantsuit with a lavender blouse unbuttoned over a white camisole. The suit is nice but it doesn't really go with the lavender blouse, which she has to wear because...oh, never mind. Anyway, she asks Frank for her messages, and he comments that she must have a "power meeting" today; she tells him it's a seminar that she doesn't want to attend, and asks him to make sure she leaves by 6:00. Carter comes up behind her pushing a man in a wheelchair; the patient's saying, "It seemed like a good idea at the time." As he gets closer to the camera, we can see he has a toupee on, rather askew. "Super-glue," Carter informs Weaver. Heh. Weaver starts getting up in his grill that she hopes Super-Glue is "patient one of two." Dr. Dave interjects, "Carter, Birdman still dead?" Okay, whatever, GRENADA. Carter tells Weaver that Super-Glue is actually "patient one of one," and hopefully asks her whether there are any traumas coming in. She dashes his hopes by telling him that she has a guy in Exam Three who cut his hand on a tin can. Ow. Those fuckers hurt.
