Mark hangs up and begs Susan to cover his last hour. "Elizabeth's stuck. I have to get home to the baby," he pleads. Of his orders to her, we care about exactly none. He does ask her to grab milk and Huggies on the way home, and she punches him. Well, in my mind, anyway.
Benton and Romano pick away at Alan's body. Romano is pleased with Alan's blood-pressure reading, and decides that they can take down the packing around his liver. Roger runs up to the glass again, and shouts that Carla's mother has been home all day, and he couldn't reach Jackie, but Joanie didn't pick up Reese, either. Romano yells for more suction. Benton wants Roger to call the cops immediately, and announces to Romano that he's going to scrub out of an important two-person surgery. Yeah, we all know you aren't going to do that, Peter. Romano demands that Benton do a pringle before Alan bleeds out. Peter grabs a tube and does the duck-bill thing with two Pringles, and Romano excuses him. Oh, except he doesn't, because "if you take your hands off the liver, he'll die!" Romano explodes. He throws something metallic for good measure.
