Trauma room. Luka examines the bruises on Teresa's face; Teresa crabs about wanting to go back to school and how she's missing a test, and her father tells her to pipe down. Luka orders tests. Teresa's father asks about her neck, and Luka tells him not to worry. Luka presses on Teresa's abdomen, and she groans in pain, so Luka sends Teresa's father to go get a cup of coffee. Teresa's Father says somewhat menacingly that he wants to stay. Luka reassures him that he can come right back. A nurse leads TF out. Luka and Chuny turn back to Teresa, both wearing "all right, give it up" faces, and Luka asks if there's any chance that Teresa's pregnant before he orders an x-ray. "No," Teresa brats. Luka and Chuny both smirk. You know, I wouldn't mind if Luka and Chuny got together. She's nice, she's pretty, she doesn't take any crap, they seem to work well together...oh, but her brief affair with Mark has probably turned her off of dating doctors forever. I don't blame her. Mark has turned me off of dating doctors forever. In fact, Mark has turned me off of dating, period. Forever. And food. All right, so I exaggerate. But only slightly. (Urp.)
Mmmm. Dry toast.
Children play on a playground outside. Chen discusses her options with an adoption agency worker, thereby letting us in at last on her plans for the baby. Back-and-forth about prospective parents. More back-and-forth about how it's "unusual" for women of Asian descent to give up their babies for adoption, and how they usually change their minds at the last minute. Chen says she can't have the baby. Agency Worker quizzes her about whether she's discussed adoption with her family, or with the father. No, to both. Does the father know Chen's pregnant? No. Okay, for those of you scoring at home, that rules out...well, pretty much everyone. Except for one guy. One hot guy. One hot guy who we thought might get a larger role on the show, but didn't, which we protested, because, well, he's hot and all. ["Anspaugh?" -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Agency Worker PSAs for us that the father has rights, rights which he'll have to sign away for the adoption to go through, even if Chen doesn't want to tell him. Chen is dismayed.
Lounge. Kerry finds Sally making coffee. Kerry tries to ask who Sally is and what she's doing there, but she can't get a word in edgewise -- Sally's raving on about "Kenyan fresh ground" and how she brought bagels and on and on, and she introduces herself as Maggie Wyczenski and then continues to overwhelm Kerry with a gust of verbiage while showcasing the selection of bagel varieties. Malik comes in to get coffee, and Sally tells him it's not ready yet, and Kerry keeps trying to tell her that the lounge "is for ER staff only," but Malik notices the bagels and tries to dodge in between the two women to get one, and Kerry tells him to "get outta here," and he reaches in and snags a raisin bagel while shooting Kerry a "drop dead, bizzotch" look. Yeah, really, Kerry. Every place I've ever worked, we'd have let Ted Bundy do the can-can on the conference-room table if he'd brought bagels in. You bring breakfast, you get to stay. ["Seriously. Bring in a box of donut holes at my old office and they'd treat you like freaking FDR." -- Wing Chun] Kerry tries again to explain that Sally can't just hang out in the lounge; Sally reassures her that "it's fine, really, my daughter's a doctor here," and says she's Abby's mother. Kerry stares at her in frank horror.
