"Everything looks okay," says Elizabeth "Rip" Corday to a very pale patient lying on her side. "No bleeding?" the patient mumbles. Elizabeth confirms that there is no bleeding, and the patient (let's call her Wicked Pale Girl) breathes, "Good, now I can go home." Elizabeth contradicts her: "You vomited blood. You fainted at work. The IV needs to stay in a while longer." WPG protests, "But you said I could leave if everything checked out!" Elizabeth says, "Yes, but your potassium level's low; we need to replenish it." At this news, Lydia leans in and asks, "Where'd you put the lab slip?" Elizabeth says, "Uh, the printer's down; I got it off the computer." Lydia is obviously unconvinced, but doesn't say anything. WPG snots, "You've wasted enough of my time already. Nurse, get my clothes." She sits up and then wobbles. All medical personnel in the room rush to her aid. Elizabeth asks what's wrong, and WPG says she's just a little dizzy from sitting up too quickly. Elizabeth tells her she has a weak pulse, which means she's dehydrated. She indicates a bag of (I presume) saline and says that WPG can go when the fluid runs in. WPG wanly agrees, and lies back down, adding, "But that's it -- then I'm out of here." Elizabeth says, "Okay," and asks Lydia to "assist [her] in making sure all of Claire's discharge papers are in order." Lydia says, "Sure," and follows her out. The camera lingers on Claire (formerly WPG), who does look thin, but she also looks like she's wearing about a pound of Kabuki make-up and some kind of lavendar blusher meant to make her cheeks look hollow. However, I watched Friends the night this aired, too, and either Jennifer Aniston or Courteney Cox Arquette makes this girl look like Mother Love -- I'm just sayin'.
