Kerry starts to crutch away, then sees Edgar and stops. They wave at each other; Edgar gives her a mischievous grin. Kerry crutches off. The hell?
It's nighttime now, and Luka and Carol sit on the hood of her car, waiting for a tow truck. We enter mid-convo as Luka asks, "A lemonade stand?" and Carol describes how she and her friends would set up a card table at the curb with a sign that said "ten cents a glass." Damn, that's bargain lemonade -- my best friend and I charged at least thirty cents. Anyway, Luka smiles, and Carol says, "Of course, it wasn't as lucrative as the chicken-and-cow trade. If we made a dollar fifty we were riding high." Luka points out that a lemonade stand is "less clean-up" than the chicken-and-cow trade. "True," Carol says; Luka watches her intently, and she smiles and says she looks forward to that "for Kate and Tess, you know, when that's the most important thing in their world, when all they think about is did they put in enough sugar, and when the next car is driving by." During the first part of this, Carol looks out into the middle distance, but towards the end, she starts to gaze at Luka, and she gets that cross-eyed flirty look on her face. Luka whispers, "Yeah," and looks down, and then he looks back at her to find that she's still giving him The Look. She breaks the tension momentarily: "I expected the tow truck to be here by now." Luka says softly, "But then, nothing has gone as expected today." He starts to laugh, but Carol's got him in the tractor beam; she gives him that short-focus look from the eyes to the lips and back to the eyes, and she leans in and kisses him lightly, and then she turns to the camera and says, "Hey, Sars? Boom! I got your boyfriend!" Okay, she didn't do that. Actually, Luka lifts his hand to her face and they start kissing in earnest, and we fade out on them smooching. I dreaded that, but it wasn't so bad, really.
Next week: Dr. Dave gets a storyline, finally, and Carol gets a message "from an old friend." Gee -- who could they possibly mean?
