Sam checks into the small motel. "Betteer call the police," Alex tells the old desk clerk. "She's kidnapping me." Sam hisses at him to cut it out, then smiles angelically at the clerk. "Kids," she apologizes. The desk clerk looks at her like, "Sigh. Mothers."
Pratt's about ready to try opening the door again. He tells Chen to swim out and kick toward the surface. She, of course, is all, "Oh, but I can't," which means she's officially been utterly and completely unhelpful in all of this. I get that she's scared, but she's not the only one -- she could at least be all, "Hey, thanks, Pratt -- thanks for not falling asleep in Physics class." Eventually, after all her complaining, Chen wriggles into the open water and swims up with complete ease. She waves at the rescue crew, which is now there in full force. "Help me!" she shouts. They mull it over, learn that her contract isn't up yet, and resignedly throw her a dinghy. "There's two more," she sputters. Pratt surfaces just then, without Fry Cook. "We got somebody down here!" he shouts. Apparently he couldn't get Fry Cook out; he got stuck on the door. Pratt wants to go back down but they insist the divers can do it. "We don't need any more victims!" Chief Rescuer shouts, ordering Pratt onto the boat.
Carter is erasing the board with Weaver when Luka arrives, sulking. "Nice of you to grace us with your presence," Weaver says snidely. "Family emergency. I'm back now," he retorts shortly. "I don't need you now. Go home," Weaver says. Yeah, right. Isn't County perpetually short-staffed? I mean, except when Luka's working, at which time it's absurdly long-staffed and can go for hours and hours. Luka, recognizing this, wants to put in those hours he owes, but Weaver would much rather walk around a noseless, pulpy freak than accept the help. She barks that it's not a co-op, and that Luka can just stay away next time he decides to leave mid-shift. Luka huffs to Frank that he should call the nursing administrator and tell her that Sam's never coming back. Then he stomps out. "He doesn't even have a family," Frank mutters conspiratorially to Carter. For his part, Carter looks concerned about Luka, but distracts himself by complimenting Kerry's suit. "Another court date?" he asks. "How'd it go?" Weaver stiffly replies, "Okay." I had to think back to realize that she'd have arrived straight from the tearful-plea scene.
