Lisa walks through the desk and out to chairs, where Kerri's husband is waiting to speak with her. He is played by Bradley Gregg, most widely known as Eyeball Chambers, the older brother of River Phoenix's character Chris in Stand By Me. Lisa introduces herself and tells him Kerri was "a little dehydrated and tired." He says that he was told Kerri had to be brought in by ambulance, and Lisa admits that it's true, but that that is the standard procedure when patients lose consciousness. Eyeball says, "Oh, God," and Lisa assures him that it's okay -- that Kerri had a small abrasion on her forehead, but that she mostly needed to rest. Eyeball says she overdoes it, and Lisa suggests that he look into getting Kerri some help at home. He says "yeah" in a tone that sounds more like "whatever" and asks if he may see her. Lisa takes a breath and starts lying: "She went upstairs for some tests." Eyeball asks what kind of tests, and Lisa says that since Kerri was anemic they had to do some blood work and check her heart, and smoothly suggests that she take Eyeball to see his kids. As they go, he reminds Lisa that she'd said that Kerri only needed to rest. Lisa agrees that she did say that, but that the doctors are "just being thorough." Eyeball says, "I should really be with her," and Lisa says, "That might be difficult." I don't know how she can walk around when her pants are on fire like that.
Elizabeth storms in as Benton scrubs and asks whether he was planning to call her about the ex-lap he's about to perform. He tartly replies that he didn't know he was expected to ask her permission. She asks, "Did your friend bother to tell you that I'd examined this patient first?" Benton replies, "Dr. Finch fully advised me of your surgical opinion." Elizabeth sarcastically says, "Oh, I'll bet she did." Benton says that he made his own clinical assessment. Elizabeth says that the patient in question is currently asymptomatic, and Benton informs her with a smirk that Eli's white count rose to 18,000. Elizabeth says that, in that case, Finch should have called her. Benton says that maybe Finch figured that Elizabeth had already made up her mind. Elizabeth says that she was observing him, and adds, "Dr. Finch may not be as comfortable with me as she obviously is with you, but had she disclosed the elevated white count, I might have changed my mind." "Maybe," says Benton, looking very amused. His amusement only serves to make her even more irate, and she commands him to stop scrubbing. He smirks at her some more, and she tells him again to stop. He tells her that he's operating on Eli, and she curtly replies, "No, you're not. I am." He protests that he's ready, but she pulls rank as Associate Chief of Surgery. He is incredulous, but she's like, "Believe it, bitch." (I'm paraphrasing, here.)
