Gallant relieves the entire world of the weight of suspense when he says that the Asian girl's vitals are normal. Carter -- clearly so involved in this case -- promptly asks Abby if her phone is working. "No," she says curtly. They then establish that the girl tested positive for barbiturates, has no blood-alcohol level, and is pregnant. "Ma'am, are you pregnant?" yells Carter, because shouting at the top of your lungs truly breaks the language barrier. Carter asks for Chen to translate, then announces they'll perform an ultrasound to rule out an ectopic pregnancy. Erin immediately asks to do the ultrasound. Carter's fine with that.
Abby is pouting outside. Carter apologizes for making her drop the phone, but does point out that they were stuck in the middle of a trauma case at the time, making it possibly the worst moment to be away on the phone. "Maybe he'll call back," Carter offers. Abby isn't comforted, so Carter asks how Eric sounded. "Depends who you ask," she says. "Happy, carefree, having the time of his..." Here, Carter pauses to sign something. "...life," Abby finishes lamely, visibly annoyed that he's not a devoted Abby Show spectator. "He's manic, Carter," she insists.
Frank escorts two soldiers to Abby. A Sgt. Andrews identifies himself as a representative from the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations, which sure worked mighty quickly. "I understand you're treating Eric Wyczenski," he intones. Abby awkwardly lies that Eric bolted against medical advice as Carter watches her, bemused. Then she tries to hustle Carter out of there, ascribing her hasty retreat to an incoming trauma. Andrews wants to see the treating physician. "He had to leave," Abby fibs badly, suggesting that Andrews leave him a card at the front desk. She shoves Carter away somewhere private. Ew, no, not there.
