Kerry runs into Carter in the lounge and gently chides his tardiness. He sadly says he was at the airport bidding farewell to the twig that was in his bed. "She has two hundred HIV patients to save," he says. "Good for her," Weaver says strongly. No kidding. Quit your pouting, Carter, and remember why you love her in the first place. Unless it's just because you can't believe she lets you sleep with her, in which case, still quit your damn pouting. Sandy pages Kerry, who checks it and gulps that Sandy's going to be so frustrated that she got stuck with a squalling infant for twelve hours. "How long will [Kem] be gone?" Kerry asks. "A few weeks," Carter says emptily. To cheer him up, Weaver shows him photos of Henry, who looks alternately terrified, stoned, and just genetically unfortunate. They coo about babies and their personalities. "You'll see," Kerry smiles.
And what's a crappy day without a Dido song? "Here With Me" kicks in as Sam kicks open the door of her sloppy, empty apartment, clearly lonely and down after a rough day. She flops down and tries to watch TV, but can't focus, and then trips over one of Alex's anatomy dolls.
This evidently makes her think of Luka, because the next thing we see is her knocking on his door and inviting him to get some dinner. Luka's apartment is dark. Not a light on in the entire place. He had been doing dishes, too. Who does that? Maybe he just eats a shitload of carrots. Anyway, Sam makes small talk about his apartment, but as Luka shrugs on his coat, she eases her way nervously up to him and peers into his eyes. Silently, he caresses her cheek, and they kiss. Shirts come off, tongues slip in, arms wrap around torsos. That lucky...gah. I don't really love Sam, but I don't loathe her, either; they're just two needy people whose genitals happen to fit together like a puzzle, and sometimes that's all people need, so you GO, Sam, and you get on that Croatian love stud for those of us who can't. The last shot is of Sam lying on her back, probably nude, as a shirtless Luka works her. And that is one lovely back he's got. It's a good thing they didn't put this shot into the episode any earlier, or I wouldn't have been able to think. Hot. Hot.
