On his way out for the day, Pratt stops and stares at Thomas's still body. Luka walks up and reports that Lysander did have a diaphragmatic laceration. Pratt isn't that interested. Luka adds, "You saved his life." Pratt doesn't react. Luka says that they all miss things, and that the social worker saw the patient too. Pratt says that he pulled rank on her: "Attending trumps resident, resident trumps intern, we all trump the social worker. It's a great system." Luka reminds him that most of the time it works. Pratt asks, "How do you stand it?" Luka asks what he means, and Pratt says, "The responsibility."
Neela walks in and asks Abby if she had a busy shift. Abby says it was normal, and asks Neela what she did that day. Neela says she tried to sleep, but couldn't, so she watched bad TV and ate cereal. Abby runs down the patients she's signing over. Sam asks if anyone wants to join her for a drink, since Luka is working and Alex is at a sleepover. I wondered why Sam had to explain why she's going out, but then I realized that some viewers would accuse Sam of neglecting her child or her relationship if she didn't. Abby begs off, but Susan is in. Darlene hands off the materials Susan asked her for earlier, and Susan thanks her and says she's the only one who came through. Susan offers to buy her a drink. Darlene says she can't, but that she would like Susan to write her a recommendation. Susan agrees, and Shane bleats, "Way to work it, [Darlene]!" Sam asks Shane if he's coming out with them. Shane says he can't drink with Attendings because it's too weird. Neela tells Shane that the plumber came and the shower's fixed. Shane is psyched, and Neela asks him for eighty bucks for his share. But she smiles at him. I really, really hope that's not going anywhere.
Wendall and Carter walk down the street outside. Wendall begs him not to give her the speech about how they win some and they lose some. Carter says he wasn't going to. Wendall beats herself up about not doing her job. Carter asks what she thinks would have happened if she did, but she asks him not to try to cheer her up. Carter moves around so that they are facing each other, and Wendall starts sobbing and says she should have saved that kid. Carter hugs her.
Pratt heads to the fancy restaurant where his ex-lover is celebrating. He walks in over the host's protests, and heads straight to the woman's table. She's surprised to see him. He apologizes to the group for interrupting and says, "I went to work this morning thinking about what you said and I need to tell you something. The work that I do? Is as real and as serious as it gets. And I don't know how you define an 'adult,' but I assure you, I'm all grown up." The woman says she didn't mean to offend him. Pratt smiles and shakes his head. He says that he doesn't know what she's looking for, but he hopes she finds it. He finishes, "Good luck" and walks out. Was that supposed to convince me that Pratt is going to lose the Prattitude? Because it's going to take a little more than that. Frankly, I think that was pretty immature, showing up at the restaurant in front of her friends.
