Carter bumps into Abby on her way out, and invites her to dinner. "I can't," she beams. "Eric's picking me up." Carter's appropriately shocked. "He's here, and he's on his meds," she delights. "He's taking me to see his airplane." Carter can't quite digest all this, and sputters an offer to accompany her. She rejects it, pleased that Eric seems to be so healthy. "Are you going flying with him?" Carter asks. Abby snorts. "No," she grins. "I'm supportive, not stupid." Carter shrugs that he needs to drop by Ed's clinic anyway to drop off a forgotten prescription. "Don't go flying with him," he urges one last time. "Don't go to Chechnya," she retorts, as if that's a fair bargain.
Romano bursts into recovery to spy Lizzie hovering over Aidan's bedside. "Your resident asked for a curbside," she explains testily, expositing for our benefit that there's some sensory loss on the thigh, but no foot drop -- all the nerves are intact. "Guess he got lucky then," Romano offers weakly. "Yes, he did," Elizabeth says firmly. Romano bites his lip, then wheels around and bursts into reception to ask Shirley where Jensen might be. "He said he was going up to the roof...to jump," she replies. Romano heads for the elevator.
Leon waits outside the bus station; Gallant appears with some food for his trip. "How far is Baltimore?" Leon asks. Gallant pats him reassuringly and says he should be there by tomorrow night. He's going to stay with an aunt of theirs, Rose. "Let's get you on the bus, then," Gallant says. Leon flips out, realizing Pratt isn't going to come see him off. Gallant tries to explain that Pratt's stuck at the hospital, but even if it's true, it sounds lame and Gallant knows it. So does Leon. "He's mad at me," Leon sobs. Ugh, I'm not going to miss this at all. The actor isn't objectionable, but all his lines are panicky wails. "I'm getting sent away because I messed up and I'm stupid!" Leon shrieks. Gallant tries to calm him down and get him on the bus; despite his tears, Leon finally obliges, and Gallant sadly wishes him a good trip. Leon looks crushed. "Be safe," Gallant calls out lamely, dodging the anvil that a cackling Foreshadowing has heaved at his noggin.
Up on the roof, Romano sees Jensen hanging out by the ledge. "Don't do it, Jensen!" he booms. "My car's down there!" Jensen steps away from the edge, perturbed. Romano blithely downplays Aidan's condition. "There was nerve damage," Jensen says brokenly. "Minimal," Romano assures him. "You'll do better next time." Jensen takes a deep breath. "You're right," he says. "Because I won't go into surgery with you." With that, he stomps inside, leaving a disturbed Romano alone. A helicopter flies overhead, blinding Romano with its lights; despondently, he leans over the roof and stares at the ground below. He slides off his kerchief and lobs it into the street, then stares at his near-useless left hand, banging it softly against the concrete ledge. Dammit, Robert, don't you dare jump, or I'm going to have to quit.
