Carter wakes up with a start and stiffly sits up, stretching. He bursts out into the ER and encounters...Randi! Hello, Randi. Way to miss a season. "Hey, Sleeping Beauty," she greets him. "How long have I been in there?" he yawns. "Since before my shift started," she answers, handing him a Post-It that Abby left him. On the front desk computer. That is so very intimate of her. She might've just tacked it onto the public bulletin board, you know, but she chose to put it on a computer. Sniffle. Love. Randi points Carter in Erin's direction; she's the only remaining med student, and she's conked out in the waiting area.
Nudging Erin's arm, Carter plops down beside her as she jolts awake. "Look, I'm sorry," he says. "The day got away from me. Try again tomorrow?" He smiles and gets up. Erin follows, not one to give up easily. "No, no, I don't think so, no," she sputters. "I've been here for sixteen hours. I have been ignored and yelled at and called 'honey' and 'sweetie' and 'bitch' -- twice. I don't smell good and all I've had to eat is Gummy Bears and Diet Coke." She pauses and stares him squarely in the eye. "I'm not leaving until I get what I came for," she says firmly. Carter regards her for a second and shoots her The Eye Twinkle of Newly Dawning Respect For The Spunky Newbie. After a beat, he gestures for her to follow him, and the camera pulls back as Carter starts to orient Erin. She besieges him with questions as we fade to black.
