Angrily, Sarah's father avers that he doesn't want her to know what happened to her. Elizabeth thinks that's messed up, given that she might be pregnant or infected with something, but the father swears he'll find a way to get her checked out without actually disclosing what happened. He wants to protect her after the fact. Elizabeth gets called away before she can snort in the man's face.
An old guy has something stuck in his forehead. I'm not sure what it is, but it looks the way recapping sometimes feels. "I'm next in line," he moans. "I want to buy a ticket!" Elizabeth curses when she realizes the object is deeply embedded in his frontal lobe. Chuny ducks into the room and shouts for Abby, who completely ignores her. "Abby," Chuny shouts, perturbed. "Your brother's on the phone." So poor old Joe Head Injury loses a nurse as Abby punches up Eric on speakerphone. His urgent call? He needs to find the blender. He wants a milkshake. Abby rolls her eyes a tad and refers him to the appliance; Carter, as he keeps half an eye on work, pipes up to ask how Jody's feeling. Joe Head Injury is stuck with Elizabeth now. "She's better," Eric says happily, suggesting that the four of them double-date that night at Navy Pier and then go dancing. Abby flinches. "She looks excited," Carter teases. Stiffly, Elizabeth orders Abby to get off the phone. Finally, I agree with Elizabeth. I mean, Eric needed a blender so milk can do his body good. Joe Head Injury needs to rid himself of shard of plastic that's camping out in his brain and evicting a lot of the blood formerly residing there. Whose is the greater tragedy?
While Elizabeth wraps Joe's head injury and gets ready to ship the old coot up to the OR, Nathan enters to inform Carter that Alison wants to speak with him. "Is she moving air?" he asks. Nathan confirms that she is. Elizabeth wants to send her home with pills and a fresh tank of oxygen. "She's not ready to go," admits Nathan awkwardly. "She wants a consult with the transplant service." This tickles Carter's pissy bone, and he stalks out after Nathan.
