Kerry checks with Chuny that there's no word from the absent Luka. She picks up the phone and calls him. His machine picks up, so she leaves a message that says, "Luka, this is Kerry Weaver. I'm down two Attendings and up forty patients. If you don't get in here and start working your scheduled shifts, I'm gonna call the INS, tell them your green card's a fake, and have your ass deported." Heh. Oh, come on, she wasn't serious! She's not really going to have him deported. She's just annoyed -- and rightly so. Way to brood on somebody else's dime, Captain Tall and Lovely. You could at least leave word.
From outside Helen's room, Gallant is eyeing her nervously through the door. Kerry approaches and encourages him to go inside the room in order to examine the patient. She then rushes off to the lounge.
Abby shows up at the desk, looking surprisingly non-perky for a girl who just got lucky in the middle of the afternoon. Or...you know, luckier than if she'd been treating sucking wounds, one would hope, even if the sex was rather unsatisfying, as I think we all secretly suspect. How can she be this glum all the time? Frank tells her there are more messages from the Flying Mom. The Flying Mom apparently says it's urgent. Of course, the Flying Mom says that a lot, so Abby's not buying. "Carter get off okay?" Susan asks. "Yes, he did," Abby says flatly. Oh, look at that. Such a lame, easy joke, and yet the best thing in the episode. Sad, really. Susan encourages Abby to come out with her and her blind date later, but Abby (for good reason) isn't in a fifth-wheel mood. There is some razzing of Susan about the date, and she assures everyone that she's had his record checked for arrests. Just then, a cab driver runs in and says he's got a lady who won't get out of his cab, and needs a doctor. Chen, Susan, and Abby stand there while Pratt runs out to see what's up.
In the cab, Pratt finds a woman who is clearly in a bad way. The driver doesn't know who she is, but she's wearing a purple fur jacket, and if you've ever seen a television show before, you know that means one thing: she has just killed a very rare Venetian Tinted Sheep. No, not really. What it means is, "Hooker." Chen and Abby join in, and as they check her over, they see that her abdomen has been slashed. They rush her inside, while the cab driver laments the fact that he's not been paid.
Inside, Chen, Abby, and Pratt work on Purple Fur. As they try to find out what happened, she mumbles weakly that somebody needs to pick up her kids from school. Pratt tells her that they can bring her kids, but she has to tell them her name. She tells them it's Monica. Monica wants to get up and go for her kids, but Chen assures her that a belly with a flapping slash through it isn't a useful accessory for a woman on the go. Meanwhile, the cab driver returns and storms into the room (unimpeded, I suppose, by security of any kind) for the sole reason of demanding his money, which in turn happens for the sole reason of allowing him to tell the doctors to look in Monica's bra for money, because she's -- shocker of shockers -- a hooker! My stars! Whatever. Pratt throws the guy out of the room.
