Mark staggers down the hall toward the elevator. The medical personnel standing there give him a wide berth, because he looks really scary at this moment.
Mark gets off the elevator on the OB floor and zombies through a series of doors to the nursery. He stands outside the door and watches through the glass as Sean cradles his son in his arms. After a moment, he pulls open the door, steps inside, and sits in front of Sean. We can't hear what he says -- we only hear Jared's crying -- but we see Sean gasp, then lean his head back and sob, and then clutch the baby tightly to his chest.
In the trauma room, Mark stares at Jodi's lifeless face. Carter, strolling past in the hall, spots Mark's vigil and enters. Carter says Mark's name a couple of times before Mark notices he's there, and blearily meets his eye. Carter stammers, "Dr. Greene, I just wanted to say, to...or to tell you that I thought what you did was a heroic thing." Mark blinks, and furrows his brow. He squints at Carter, and then leaves the room without a word. ["Okay, that's snotty." -- Sars]
Mark and Susan climb the stairs to the El; she's saying, "It's just one stop the other way, right by the train station!" Mark tightly replies, "I gotta get going." Susan kindly wheedles, "Come on! Not only does Shorty's have the greasiest eggs in town -- stuff falls from the ceiling every time the El goes by!" Mark says, "Sounds attractive, Susan. I've just got a million things I've got to do." The El pulls in and Mark goes to board it. Susan calls after him, "Are you sure you're okay?" Mark transparently lies, "I'm fine! Scout's honour." Susan calls, "Is Jen home?" but Mark's already on the train and doesn't answer. He walks to the back of the last car and stands by the window, waving back at her. Susan sighs, and watches as the train pulls away.
In the car, Mark finds a seat and sits down. The city landscape rolls by outside. Mark watches, and then tilts his head back and weeps at his own impotence.
