Dr. Anspaugh shows up and sarcastically wishes Weaver a happy Thanksgiving. Anspaugh! Nice to see them trotting out the ones we expect to come through in a tragedy. One of the nurses passes by with an injured wrist. Pratt is appropriately impressed that she lifted patients with her injury.
A big music swell blasts our eardrums, so that we know A Hero Who, If He'd Known He Could Fall 1500 Feet And Get A Promo Dedicated To Him, Probably Might Have Gotten On The Chopper After All is about to burst back into our lives in a blaze of implausibility. "I need a doctor here!" Chuck shouts. He has a man with a neck wound. "Weren't you the flight nurse?" Pratt asks. "Supposed to be," Chuck says. They wheel Chuck's patient into the trauma room. Where the hell did Chuck and his mystery patient come from? No other copter arrived. No one was on the helipad -- we saw only Neela and the nurse while Chopper was thrashing around showing off. Maybe he was just waiting for Susan in the downstairs bathroom.
As Coop sucks on an inhaler to quell his asthma, he points shakily at the trauma-room window. "I thought he was dead," he says. Susan turns around and, when she sees Chuck, lets tears spring to her eyes. Chuck seems relieved to see her, and they both drop everything as the background music drops out. "Baby, I had to tube..." Chuck begins. Susan throws herself at him and her arms around him, clinging tightly. "It's not that big of a deal," he laughs, confused. "I thought you were on the chopper," Susan says between happy sobs. "No, they brought their own flight nurse, and the bitch wouldn't let me fly," Chuck says, smiling. "That bitch saved your life!" Susan cries. She's called away. "I know, I know," she stomps her foot, sweetly torn between wanting to revel in Chuck and knowing that she's needed. "I thought you were dead," she says emotionally, glowing at the sight of him. "I scraped my back a little," Chuck boasts teasingly, touching the spot and pulling away a bleeding hand. Susan backs away to tend to her patients, positively beaming. Again, very well acted. These two are way more appealing than any other couple on this show, as long as the writers don't decide to make Chuck a complete knob for the purposes of giving Susan relationship angst. Which...yeah, Chuck's probably still doomed.
