Dave and Cleo share some no-humor banter about the no-water situation, and Cleo tells Dave the food in vending machines will kill him. Promise? Cleo asks if anyone has seen Chuny, because she needs a translator, and when Dave asks what she's got, she tells him, "Father-daughter combo, present with aplastic anemia." Dave asks, "Both of them?" and Cleo says yes, it's strange, because neither has a history of toxic exposure. Dave takes the chart from Cleo as she adds, "Bone marrow's not makin' squat," and Dave decides to barge in on the case because he's "got a hunch." He chats with the family in Spanish while Cleo protests "what are they saying?" and "what are you doing?" with all the emotional vigor of a limp dishrag. After the daughter finally tells Dave what he wants to hear, he stalks from the room, explaining to Cleo that the father and daughter got shots for their colds from an illegal pharmacist who brings drugs up from Mexico. Cleo says, "Oh god," in the same tone the rest of us use to greet a broken nail, and when she notices that Dave is rummaging purposefully in his locker, and she asks, "What are you doing?" Dave says that the daughter gave him the address of the pharmacist. Cleo says they should really call the police; Dave snorts, "Yeah. They see a squad car, they'll bolt in two seconds." Lily comes in for Cleo, saying they could use her out there, and Dave tells Cleo to go ahead, he's got it; Cleo gets territorial, saying that the father and daughter are her patients and she "can handle it." Dave shrugs, "Yeah, they're all yours." Cleo looks exasperated -- or as exasperated as a woman with a injection-molded face can look -- and follows Dave into the hall: "What are you going to do?" Dave tells her not to worry about it. Just then, a gurney with a kid strapped to it rolls past, with Carol draped over the side cooing that they'll take good care of the kid. Cleo follows the gurney, and in the process of getting the bullet -- the kid has a broken leg but no head trauma -- she knocks over an equipment cart. What's up with the equipment-cart sight gags? That's two so far, and for the record, we don't see the kid again either.
