Abby sighs, and suddenly someone puts his hands over her eyes. It's Jake, and he guesses that Abby hates it when people do that. Man, talk about your bad timing. Abby says that she really does hate it, and Jake lets go, but asks her if she appreciates that he knew that about her. Abby doesn't answer, and stomps away. Jake chases after her and asks if it's bad timing, and whether she wants to talk about it. Yes, and no, respectively. Jake says that he's back. Abby keeps walking and then stops and turns and apologizes profusely, asking how San Francisco was. Jake was apparently visiting potential employers, and he thinks San Francisco is a long shot. Abby tries to encourage him, but she's distracted by looking for Carter. She never does stop and give him her full attention, or even explain why it's bad timing. Jake says that he might match at County, and asks what that would mean. I think he's talking in terms of their relationship, but Abby either doesn't get it, or pretends not to get it.
Luka, Sam, and Pratt wheel in a guy who was luging down the street and crashed into a wall. Luka and Pratt are interested in the sport, and asking all kind of questions. Sam is pissy because she doesn't think the others are taking the injury seriously. The kid reports that his hands are numb, and Luka gets worried and orders a C-Spine.
Abby finally finds Carter and says she needs to talk to him about Ruby. Shane West totally interrupts to present Birdie's case. Carter checks the chart, and Shane West suggests that Abby take the case for "continuity of care." Abby says it was a different complaint last week. Carter finishes glancing at the chart and tells Shane to let them go if they have family support. Shane is about to follow orders when Abby interjects that they're both panhandlers. Shane says that everybody's got to make a living. Abby asks what's wrong with him. Well, let's start with the excessive eyeliner. Abby says that Birdie won't get better out on the street. Carter tells Shane to call Social Services. Shane says that they wanted to leave, and Carter orders him again to call Social Services.
