Pratt meets up with his new patient, who takes the form of Joey Tribbiani's father. It seems he's been taking shots of B12 for about fifteen years, ever since his doctor diagnosed him with pernicious anemia. His doctor recently died, so he hasn't had his B12 shot, and he's in for a fix. When Pratt balks, Mr. Tribbiani assures him that there's nothing to worry about, because he knows what he's talking about. He hands Pratt a business card that identifies Mr. Tribbiani as the president of Victims of Pernicious Anemia.

And now, it's time for a few more of the denizens of the high school to show up and investigate the happenings. Mary Cherry and Nicole come stomping down the hall looking for their friends who were in the accident. Susan intercepts them and says she can't give information out, so they should go back to school and wait to hear. They spot Helen through a window, however, and dash into her room, demanding to know what happened. When Helen hesitates, Mary Cherry declares Helen a "freak," grabs Nicole, and gets gone, vowing to get the information through her mom, who's "friends with the principal." When they're gone, Helen explains to Susan that those are the popular girls. Or, you know, Popular girls.
Alderman Mick is congratulating Kerry as they step off an elevator together. He's sucking up to her about how great she is, and then he mentions that he still has some pain from his injury. Kerry -- being helpful and a little corrupt -- offers him another wad of Vicodin without even being asked. Well, sure! Why not? Susan looks on a little dubiously at this, but says nothing. Once Alderman Mick is gone, Susan congratulates Kerry and asks her for a needed signature, which Kerry provides. Susan thinks Kerry should use the plum position to get some more nurses for County. Wow, nothing creates drama like the internal budget. Really. Come on! More about the cost of paper towels! My appetite is whetted!
