Benton walks into the ambulance bay, where hundreds of bags of garbage are all piled up. He gets to the barriers separating the picketers from the hospital, greets Nat, and they exchange pleasantries. Benton starts to move one of the barriers to let himself out, but Nat stops him. Benton asks, "What are you doing?" Nat quietly asks, "Go around the other way, would you?" Benton starts to say that he's late, and Nat explains, "The news is here." Benton glances up and sees an anchor lady setting up a shot. Benton wishes Nat luck and duly heads back to the hospital to cut through to the other entrance. Chen sits on a bench outside, sniffling. He calls her name, and she says she's on break, and sniffles some more. Her legs are crossed to obscure her lap. He asks if she's all right, and she says she's fine. Just then the sirens start, and Weaver comes running out, telling Benton that a "mass cas" is coming in: "a riot at a high-school football game." Benton protests that he was "just leaving to pick up somebody" (and under the circumstances I don't know why he wouldn't beg off by explaining that somebody is Carter), but Weaver curtly says, "Not anymore, you're not." The picketers dive for cover as the ambulances pull in.
