A cop escorts his partner inside; she's cradling her hand, which was shredded on the glass of her shot-out car window. "She keeps saying it's no big deal," her partner complains. The female cop clutches it good-naturedly and tries not to look alarmed. That's exactly the opposite of how I'd behave. I can't cut my hair without wincing. When I cut myself shaving? Forget it, just put me in the freaking casket. And here's Officer Bravado, whose hand is slashed wide open, and she's all, "Whatever, I'll just take a number and sit here counting my tendons." They should call for a Psych consult. Abby starts to examine it, but Jerry yells that she's late for her meeting with Romano, Weaver, and the nurse director, so she fobs it off on Nathan. Yay! Work it, Nathan, you saucy student you.
Alison's father -- a burly bandanna-and-goatee-clad trucker-looking dude who's kind of a less pasty and fat, less drunk, and less personally offensive version of Dix -- learns from Carter that his daughter collapsed, has pneumonia, is rejecting her liver, declined a ventilator, and signed a DNR. And also, she's probably going to be sued by Lucasfilm. This is not a good day for Daddy. "She's just depressed," he rationalizes. "She gets that way. Let me talk to her." Carter isn't so sure that will make a difference. He thinks she wants to die. "She's just a kid," Big Daddy says. "She's twenty-six," notes Carter. "She just gets tired," Big Daddy whimpers. "She's dying," Carter counters. "We're all dying," Big Daddy offers. "Not like that," Carter argues. Come on, boys, on three -- whose is bigger? Carter reminds Big Daddy that his daughter is in tremendous pain that won't abate, especially since she's stopped taking the anti-rejection medicine. "Catch her up," growls Big Daddy. "Won't work," Carter says. Basically, they do another point-counterpoint wherein Carter dashes all of Big Daddy's insistences that Alison can be saved. Big Daddy doesn't find this charming. The Sad Piano of Growing a Spine In the Face of Death plays as Big Daddy growls, "If you don't want to fight for her, I'll find a doctor who will." He goes inside and strokes Alison's cheek as Carter watches and wishes he could grow manly chin hair like Big Daddy's.
