They finally reach Shane's friend, Nick, and Shane introduces Morris as "Archie". Hee! I forgot that was his name. Nick is disappointed that Neela isn't there, so I guess he's the one who was all into her in that episode with Gallant. Shane asks where Jessica is, and takes off to go make some slimy unwanted advances, leaving Morris to make small talk with Nick. Morris announces that he's Chief Resident, and Nick says, "That means, like, nothing to me." Hee! Nick pretends to spot a girl nearby and runs off to avoid talking to Morris anymore. Morris stands alone and quickly checks his fly, then grooves along to the music. I'm sorry they don't give Scott Grimes more to do. Morris sucks, but I like Scott Grimes okay.
Carter examines some dude's knee, like has it really been less than an hour since he delivered the pizzas and Shane and Morris left work, went to Morris's place to change, and arrived at the party? Shouldn't Carter's shift be over by now? Precocious Wrist Injury Girl keeps asking questions, and Carter asks the nurse if her parents are on their way, but they're stuck out on a lake cruise. Carter's knee patient asks if he needs surgery, and Carter says he has a ganglion and that it's probably benign. Janell (Precocious Wrist Injury Girl) keeps asking questions, and Carter ignores her some more. Jerry tells Carter that the sewer pipes that were supposed to be fixed last week are acting up again. Carter says that they should avoid being overrun by trauma. (But what will they do when the deck collapses in about twelve minutes?)
Neela helps the paramedics to wheel in a guy in a cow costume. Apparently, he was in a play when he was injured by falling scenery. Carter has to make some smart remarks, like, the dude is bleeding from the HEAD and probably has NO TIME for Carter's stupid jokes. Neela takes the patient (remarking that it's a good thing she's not Hindu, heh) and Carter moves to check on the next guy coming in. Abby reports that this guy (who is dressed like a fireman) has abrasions due to "community theater gone bad." The fireman explains that they're mounting a production based on the Great Chicago Fire, which explains the costumes. Sort of. The two actors exchange bitchy insults, and Carter realizes that Abby can handle it. Carter asks Haleh and Malik where they're going, because they're obviously heading to his party, and Haleh says they're going on an ambulance run as Malik says they're going to get some coffee. They don't even bother to try to cover their gaffe, and keep moving. Pratt asks Chuny if she's seen KJ, his "Volunteen." Wow, that's a bad made-up word. Chuny directs Pratt to the nurse's desk.
