Abby tries to talk to Carter about Ruby again. She doesn't think anyone is painting him a clear picture of the risks. Carter keeps walking and says that it's Ruby's choice. Abby thinks it's a lousy choice, and wants someone to talk to him. Carter pauses to sign a chart for Chuny, and says that it's Abby's case. Abby doesn't think Ruby will listen to her, because she's young and female. Frank interrupts to ask Carter to buy some Girl Scout cookies. Abby finally gets right in Carter's way and asks why he keeps blowing this off. Carter denies that he is. Abby says she doesn't know Carter's history with Ruby. Carter gets angry and says that sometimes Abby will run into patients who want an older doctor, and that she needs to find a way to get through to them. Abby says she's tried. Carter walks away and yells back that she did her job and should move on. How long has Carter been burned out, anyway? That storyline is getting pretty old.
Jerry wakes up Susan, who is sleeping in an exam room. He reminds her that the Chief Residency meeting is starting. She mumbles something, and he makes sure that she is really awake before he leaves. Susan walks through Trauma Green, where someone is drilling something, kind of ruining her little nap. In Trauma Yellow, she walks past Pratt trying to saw the helmet off the street luge guy. Susan asks what they're doing, and Pratt explains that they couldn't yank the helmet off. Shane West is suddenly there and talking about how cool the case is. Sam makes a bitchy comment, like, what's her problem, anyway? Abby walks in, looking for Carter. Susan says he's probably at the meeting she's headed for, and adds that Luka is supposed to be there, too. Abby says that Anspaugh wants a central line on Ruby. Luka tells Pratt to help her.
Morris, in a suit, prepares for his Chief Resident interview and presentation. Carter compliments his attire, and Morris says it's important for the Chief Resident to be professional. And then he fumbles in his attempt to pull down a projection screen. Susan walks in and apologizes for being late. Morris asks her to hit the lights. Susan yawns and turns them off. Weaver is there as well. Morris begins his presentation, which is apparently done on actual slides, like, I didn't know they still made those. Morris also manages to stand right in front of the screen, so that the slides are partially projected on his face. Morris mentions the length of his presentation, and Susan can't believe that it will last an hour. Girl, I hear you. I sat through two three-hour college orientations today (which I've seen several times before) and a four-hour meeting last night. I'm done with meetings for a while. Morris apparently thinks he has the answer to the ER's scheduling problems.
