On his way out, Carter bumps into Luka Kovac, who has skied to work. On downhill skis, so that can't have been terribly quick or fun, but hey, he gets to look manly and overpaid. Luka asks if Abby found Eric. Carter explains importantly that he's en route to Midway to sit there and wait for the airport to re-open so he can go to Nebraska. "She's already there. She left last night," Carter adds. Luka studies him. "You didn't go with her?" Luka asks. "I had a shift," Carter says. "I sent Gallant with her." Luka cocks an eyebrow. "Yeah?" he asks. "Why?" Carter retorts, starting to get a little defensive. He wants to throw down, but he's intimidated by Luka's giant pole. Ski pole, that is. Luckily, this stops before they whip it out and golden-shower each other to death in a shockingly literal pissing contest. Susan shouts that they've got multiple traumas incoming; a drunk driver plowed into a family that was building a snowman. "Where's Weaver?" Carter asks. No go -- Weaver's car is stuck, and Susan points out that it's going to take a while for her to cane her way through the snow. "I thought we were closed to ambulance traffic. How's anybody going to get here, anyway?" Carter pouts, frowning and stomping back to the hospital while mentally adding another chapter to his autobiography, Nobody Knows The Trouble I Seen.
Cut to Elizabeth and Nathan in the elevator, preparing to meet a MedEvac copter. She gives him instructions on how to behave and what to watch for if the wind is disorienting. She then helps Nathan don his yellow slicker. Slowly, Nathan's left hand starts trembling again. "You have a tremor on the left," Elizabeth notices suddenly. "I only noticed it on the right. Have you had symptoms on the left before?" Nathan ascribes it to stress and sleep deprivation, as always, but Elizabeth gently suggests that his Parkinson's is progressing. "My rotation's almost over," he snaps. With an air of sympathy, Elizabeth wonders why he puts himself through such insane shifts at the hospital. "Please don't treat me like I'm dying," Nathan says testily. "Can we just go get this patient?" The doors open. "Stick with me and stay clear of the tail rotor," Elizabeth yells. You know, if they'd wanted to cut off someone's arm and had it be relatively in-character, as opposed to Romano's careless moment, this would've been the time. Nathan's dyskinesia could've caused his arm to shoot out and come off. Okay, fine, that's a little insensitive, but at least it wouldn't involve turning Romano into a dumb-ass. That's an unforgivable sin. Nathan's body stalls at the lip of the elevator, and you can see in his eyes that he's praying for one last burst of momentum; he gets it.
