The Flash of Here's Where It All Went To Hell. Abby waits outside for an incoming trauma, and spies Chen crossing the snowy ambulance bay. "Didn't know you were on today," Abby says pleasantly. "I got the call from Weaver," Chen says, amused. "Oh, too bad for you," Abby says. Chen is carrying a really cute black purse with a big red flower on it. Damn, I'm recapping my own envy, and apparently it's floral. Chen whispers mischievously that the big gossip of the day is Erin and Luka dancing and then leaving Susan's party together. Abby looks taken aback. "So? I was dancing with Yosh," Abby scoffs with a snicker. Luka slips through the sliding glass doors at this point, and Chen greets him too brightly. He responds by emotionlessly giving her the bullet on a patient she's to deal with -- Jane, I think -- and Chen disappears inside. "That wasn't so bad," Abby offers. "A couple hours saving lives and you're back on the streets." Luka complains that he feels like crap. "You don't look so good, either," she giggles. "Thanks a lot," he grins, and oh, hello, teeth. I'd like to suck on you.
Abby and Luka watch the ambulance arrive; a medic unloads COA, announcing that he was sideswiped by a bus while seemingly fleeing from somebody. Luka notices that the man's last name is Croatian, and speaks in his native tongue. The man responds. "He doesn't want the police," translates Luka. As they cart him inside, Abby laughingly warns him to flee before he gets sucked back inside, but Luka wonders if he should stay in case COA needs a translator. Abby insists that they're fine, and heads back inside. Luka turns and begins trudging home, but then he's seized by compassion -- or possibly the reality that he's got little better to do, since he's so lonely -- and he turns back around to go inside. It's the decision that he should never have made. We fade to black thinking that the eerie music they're using sounds an awful lot like the woman who played a metal coat-hanger with a violin bow on Sesame Street that one time.
