In an office lined with law books, Benton is telling a woman that he's already told the mediator he doesn't want to take Reese from Carla, but that he's only trying to prevent Carla from taking Reese from him. She asks whether he thinks Carla's doing this to hurt him. He says Carla doesn't seem to care. The woman asks whether Benton cares about Carla's situation. He looks at her suspiciously, and she says, "What is it?" He says he's never talked to a therapist before. She says he's not here to psychoanalyze him -- only to assess the family dynamic for the court. Benton says it's simple: "Carla and I both love our son, but she's trying to take him away from me so her new husband can pursue his career." The therapist asks a bunch of rapid-fire questions about Roger, Carla's new husband, and determines that Benton thinks Roger's a decent guy who treats Reese well and seems to love him. Benton gets agitated and asks why they're talking about Roger when it's about Benton, Reese, and Carla. The therapist tells Benton that, like it or not, Roger is part of the question, and asks Benton how he'd deal with it if Carla does, finally, take Reese out of the country. Benton says, "That's not going to happen." The therapist says, "If it did?" Benton looks out the window and doesn't answer. This is really only going to get worse before it gets better.
Carter gets Terruh's two most recent chest films and runs into Corday. He congratulates her, and she curtly tells him she has a patient. He says, "Aye aye, Chief," as she rolls her eyes and goes behind a curtain. Before she pulls it, Carter sees an anxious-looking Elaine in a hospital gown. Ruh roh!
St. Carol brings a book to a woman named Vanessa, whose nursing home sent her over. The book has a Sacred Heart on it, and when Carol comments on it (and, as we are all well aware, Carol should know from Sacred Hearts), Vanessa asks if she's Catholic and comments about what happened to "Paul" and implies that whatever it was made her lose her faith, which is too bad, since "Heaven sounds good right now." Carol asks if Vanessa wants to see a priest, since the hospital has one on call. Vanessa dismissively says, "God, no." Carol asks again, and Vanessa tells her not to trouble herself. Carol says, "It's really no bother," so that Vanessa has to say, rather forcefully, "Really, don't."
Jeanie runs down the hall to catch up with Bob from DCFS, and excitedly tells him she'll take Carlos. Bob asks if she's a licensed foster parent, and she says she isn't, but she can become one. He says it's nice of her, but not realistic, because she'd have to be screened first, and have training. She says she can do all that, and take care of him in the meantime. Bob asks if she has any other children, and she says she doesn't, so she can focus on Carlos. Bob says it's not policy, but maybe Jeanie can do it until Bob finds a licensed foster parent. Jeanie fades a bit, then brightly adds, "Or until I get licensed!" Bob jollies her along a bit, saying he'll look into it, but will make no promises.
