Luka watches Ante's surgery from the gallery, and calls Ante's mom to tell her that everything is going smoothly. When he hangs up, he just stares at the surgeons. Kerry, behind him, quietly promises to calm the outrage that will spill from the Fat Cats when they find out that their hypothetical situation so unexpectedly became terribly, terribly, terribly real. "I thought if I could save him, it would make me feel...I don't know, like, uh, maybe I was a doctor again," he whispers brokenly. We would have liked to see what Kerry said, but apparently TPTB decided to end the scene instead. Okay then.
Carter yawns. Jerry hangs up the phone and informs him that Abby is on her way down. "That'd be a first," Carter's pants think. "Ah, memories," Luka's pants think. A nearby Gallant sees Romano charging toward the exit and calls out, "Dr. Romano, how's it going?" Romano glares, "How's what going?" Gallant gulps, "Nothing." Good bitch.
Diana gets wheeled into a room, so Carter follows her in and pleasantly asks how she's feeling. "Is Curtis here?" she asks. Carter coughs that he had to go briefly, but promised to come back for a visit. "You're a doctor, and you dress so nice," she swoons. Carter's all, Yeah, thanks, cow, I'm grieving. And Diana's like, Sucks to be you, Puffy. And Carter's like, Yeah, it does, you think I like it that my face blew up suddenly? Seriously, I hope it's just that Noah Wyle's just tired from the baby, or something. He's looking rougher than usual. Diana asks when Curtis will be back, and Carter swears he'll have the doctors send him in when he arrives. "He's a good boy, my Curtis," she coos. Carter gives her the "You Hide Your Ignorance With Your Wig" look and leaves, shaking his head in pity.
