Dr. Carl De "You're So" Raad introduces himself to Luka by saying, "Your psychiatric hold? Way out of line, my friend." Lucy tries not to let her face say "I told you so" but fails. Luka asks why, and De Raad says that, in order to justify certification, the patient has to present a danger to himself or others. "He is a danger to others, come on! Just look at his wife," Luka protests, and Lucy says quickly, "She says she fell off a ladder." Luka snorts, and De Raad says, "Until she says different, nothing we can do. I'm sorry." Luka asks De Raad if he's talked to Paulie, and De Raad says he's seen Paulie and he knows why Luka had him committed, but he won't even take Paulie upstairs for an evaluation. Luka rubs his forehead stagily and asks De Raad to talk to Paulie before releasing him. De Raad asks, "What's the point?" and Luka says, "Please, you and me -- let, let's talk to him." Luka and De Raad go into the next room, and Paulie says, "Look, it's the crazy foreigner! They should put these [restraints] on you, you know?" Luka baits him about hitting his wife, and De Raad tells Paulie to settle down, and Paulie tells them to ask Loren whether he ever hit her, and Loren says he never has. Lucy asks if Loren wants them to release Paulie, and Loren, knowing she'll get it worse at home the longer they keep her husband, says urgently, "Please." De Raad mutters, "Okay, let him go." Luka keeps needling Paulie as the attendants release him from the restraints, and Lucy asks, "What are you doing?" and De Raad tells him to "leave it, Kovac," and Luka implies that Paulie kicked and stomped on Loren, adding sarcastically, "Wow, what a man," and Loren knows this won't help her once they leave, so she snarls at Luka, "Shut up!" Luka makes one last provocative comment. Paulie punches him in the face and starts screaming that he'll kill Luka, and Luka gets up and says, "See? 'Danger to others,'" and De Raad yells at Luka, "Get outta here!" as the attendants hold Paulie back from attacking Luka.
Chuny hands Mark the test results on Crystal, the sickle-cell girl. Mark looks them over and asks if she and her family have left yet, and Chuny says they walked out a couple of minutes before. Mark yells, "Lawrence, we've got a problem here!" Hawkeye runs to follow Mark out through the ambulance bay, and Mark catches the Powells and tells them they need to come back in; Crystal needs another test. Mr. Powell says that they just left and that Crystal feels much better, and Hawkeye wants to know what's going on; Mark tells Hawkeye meaningfully, "The icon was positive." Hawkeye stares at him, then nods and says, "She has to come right back in." Crystal makes a "whatever" face.
