Doctor Who ["Dale Edson" -- Wing Chun] grabs Carter and grins that he checked out Mrs. Metalhead's bleeding nose, scheduling her for a septoplasty next week. Carter is surprised to learn she had a nasal defect, and Doctor Who glibly grins, "Two grams of coke a day will do that." He encourages Carter to go home, especially after learning that the young resident wasn't even on the schedule that night, but Carter insists he should just stay and nap at County, because he's due in again at noon. "Bad idea," Doctor Who cautions. "You know what they say: 'The longer you stay, the longer you stay.'" Fatigued, Carter just shakes his head and bolts for a room in which to sleep. He passes the scene of Paul's demise, and notices Chen leaning against the wall, defeated and grieving and torturing herself. Sighing, he proceeds to a private room, slaps a "Do not disturb -- I gave at the office!" sign onto the door, and slams it. Carter should write bumper stickers.
Reese sneaks into Benton's bedroom and taps his father awake. "What's wrong?" he frets. "Bad dreams?" Reese nods angelically. Benton melts and invites his son into the big bed for the night. "It's okay, it's okay," he soothes, as Reese rests his cheek on a pillow and slips into more peaceful slumber. Benton, sad, lies down beside his son.
