Ambulance bay. Rena pouts that she had tickets to a Bulls game, and that she thought he'd like to go. Carter says he would. "Then let's go!" Rena nasals. Carter says that Lisa needs someone to go with her. Rena whines, "Why can't her boyfriend go with her?!" Um, because he has more sense? And, having already been in her pants, he doesn't need to manufacture new reasons to maneuver his way in them? CARTER?
Lounge. Luka wearily tells Lisa that her going is a mistake. Lisa barks, "Are you going to lecture me on this?" Luka says no. Lisa snaps, "Good. Because you have no idea what it's like. I grew up with this, and I don't want to be lectured on it." Luka insists that he's not lecturing, he's just trying to help.
Ambulance bay. Norman is barking like mad, and Rena's having a teeny, tiny, junior-miss-sized hissyfit: "You're spending the weekend with her!" "And her clinically depressed mother!" Carter squeaks.

Elizabeth arrives at County and protests that she can walk. Mark tells her it's hospital policy that she use the wheelchair. Great, now she's literally a bitch on wheels. Three quarters of the ER staff get in her face as Mark wheels her to the elevator. It's nothing we haven't seen before. As the elevator doors close, Jing-Mei "Deb" Chen advises, "Don't be a hero: get the epidural." "We'll see," Elizabeth snits. Once the doors have closed, Chen knowingly says, "She'll get it." Haleh's like, "Girl, please. Of course she will."
Many hours later. Elizabeth is back on the ground floor, pouting that she's "so humiliated." Mark tells her that it was an honest mistake. Okay, hi, this is so stupid. Elizabeth is a doctor. I should think she would know that you are not in labour until your water breaks. I know the labour false alarm is a staple of predictable TV, but it doesn't really ring true when the mother is a doctor! God! Anyway, it's the same thing as before, only in reverse, with everyone wondering where the baby is. Elizabeth irritatedly throws her head back, and we get a shot, from her perspective, of the fluorescent lights on the ceiling rolling past. They fade into...
