Danvers leads Elizabeth and Matt Craven into an even more plush-looking library and offers the court reporter a familiar greeting. He draws Elizabeth's attention to the videocamera by telling her to ignore it. Danvers continues being all Chatty Chatterson about the car accident that delayed his arrival to the meeting. Elizabeth is sworn in (and she seems either rattled or relieved that there's no Bible on which to swear). Danvers asks her to spell her name for the record, and asks how long she's been a surgeon. She says it's been ten years. He asks her if she's ever been deposed before and she tells him she hasn't. Danvers notes, "After ten years, that's pretty good." She replies, "Well, only three have been in America." "Touché," says Danvers. Yeah, what a wit! Americans sure are litigious, right? Whatever.
Finch and Dr. Dave examine Braids in a trauma room. Finch tells Braids that she'll need to remove her pants, and Braids is adamant that she not: "It's just my face!" Finch glances outside and sees Peter "Deep Knee" Benton loitering in the hall. She goes out and tells him there's a patient with a hernia for him to examine, and he says he will, "after the assault victim." Totally blank, as ever, Finch says it's probably just a facial fracture, and Benton says that he'll clear the belly. She insists that the patient is stable, whereupon Lisa comes out and says that Braids has blood in her underwear, which she claims is her period. Finch is like, "Nice one," and tells Lisa to get a rape kit. Benton makes to go in, and Finch tells him he shouldn't see Braids: "It's Jesse's girlfriend." Of course, this only steels Benton even more; he takes two steps away, and then charges past her to Braids's bedside. Dr. Dave tells Braids that she didn't crack her skull. Benton roughly throws back the sheet covering Braids and gruffly introduces herself; she tells him she knows who he is. He glances at her face. Dr. Dave -- for once -- slips out unobtrusively upon Benton's appearance. Benton curtly asks Braids whether there's anyone she wants them to call -- her mother, for instance -- and Braids slurs that her mother won't be home. Benton shoots Finch a warning look; she stares back placidly, while millions of applications are processed behind her face plate.
