Susan stands outside, stone-faced. Weaver sidles up to her. "I thought you left," she says. Susan asks how the boy is; Weaver says he had a hylar leak, but Luka cracked his chest and everything came up roses. "You would've done the same," Weaver insists gently. "I killed three people," Susan self-pities. "It would've been four if I'd stayed with that kid." Weaver shakes her head and clarifies that Susan killed nobody -- she was just unable to save three people. "I've seen you save twice that many without breaking a sweat," Weaver smiles comfortingly. Susan nods gratefully. She's been Touched By A Weavus. That's going to be a killer spin-off. "Go home, have a drink. Tomorrow's another day," Weaver smiles. "But if you lose more than one patient, you're fired." They swap grins.
Sandy Lopez approaches, and she and Kerry envelop each other in a loving hug. Now, that's chemistry. Are you watching, Abby and Carter? Susan does that thing where you smile happily for a person but you aren't sure if you should look or not, so she lets her eyes flicker around. Kerry and Sandy begin to leave, but Sandy urges Kerry to tell Susan the good news about Weavus. Kerry turns. "Susan, uh, we're going to have a baby," Kerry beams. Stunned, Susan looks at Sandy and says, "You're pregnant?" Man, wonder how that made Kerry feel. Sandy protests laughingly and points to Kerry. Susan is delighted and hugs Kerry, whose face is absolutely radiant. It's sweet.
Sketchy Dad frostily escorts Nanny out of the hospital. Carter and Chen chase after them, the former shouting that there are laws against slavery. Sketchy Dad leaves Nanny there to hash this out while he brings around the car. "It's wrong," Carter insists. Nanny cries that she's got family back in China who need the money she makes. Chen offers to help her find another job. "They'll take your baby, just like they took Aidan," Carter says cruelly. Nanny sobs that she spends more time with Aidan than Sketchy Dad and Mrs. Sketchy Dad do. "Does he even know? That you're his mother?" Carter asks, trying to prove a point. "He doesn't," Nanny weeps softly. "But I do." She leaves. Carter and Chen look defeated. They're not as good at crusading for social justice as they thought.
Elizabeth corrals Nathan for a private chat. She's looking very pointy, so you know it can't be good. "When you first came to me, you requested that I treat you like any other med student on rotation," she begins. Nathan thanks her for making an effort to do so. "I know your disease presents you with numerous challenges, and the very fact that you're standing here is testament to your character," Elizabeth begins. Nathan watches silently as she takes a deep breath to propel the bad news out of her mouth. "I would fail any other student for a similar performance," she avers. Nathan protests that he realizes he has to make adjustments because of his disease. "No, political correctness aside, you are handicapped and I'd be doing a disservice to your future patients," she insists. Nathan bristles and asks what his appeal process might be. "A promise," Elizabeth growls. "I will pass you if you do not practice clinical medicine. You can do radiology, psychology, but you must give me your word you will never treat patients." Nathan digests this in shock. "No," he says, hurt. "I can't do that." Elizabeth stares him down. She owns a mighty glare, that one. "Then you will fail, Mr. Nathan," she shrugs, leaving. I sort of do agree that his disease is one that should prevent him from studying surgery, but it seems like there should be dispensations for that and ways that he can still treat patients without having to cut them open. On the other hand, wow, Spittle was lying there cut open and Nathan was all, "This will pass in an hour." The man doesn't have an hour to lie there with his whipple hanging out waiting for your meds to kick in.
