Incoming trauma: George, suffering from chest pain. It's an apparent heart attack. George is sassy about it, but it's inconsequential sass -- the most annoying kind -- so we're going to ignore it. Jerry announces an arriving MVA victim. "My dance card is full," Carter says, wheeling George purposefully down the hall. Abby trots off to get Susan.
Abby finds Susan with Crazy Bob, who is at the moment lying torture-free in a bed. Abby lets Susan know that a trauma's incoming on a helicopter. Casually, Susan asks if it's Chuck's unit, which elicits an amused grin from Abby. "Yeah, I know, it's weird, but there's something about him," Susan admits. "He makes me feel good." Abby shoots her a knowing glance -- which is to say, she knows Susan and Chuck have been engaging in intense genital stimulation followed by sexual intercourse and orgasms, if you get what I'm saying, and I think you just might. "Not that way," Susan tsks. Then she pauses. "Well, that way too," she allows. "But you know what I mean." I think we do: he's a better kisser than Carter, the wettest fish since Wanda chugged an Evian while swimming.
Abby sits down next to Whacked-Out Ed and reads that he's on anti-psychotic drugs. She asks him how many he's taken. "All gone," he convulses. 'I need more." Susan warns him that taking too many will stop his heart, but he babbles that the pills scramble the signal and keeps "them" from finding him by reading his neural patterns. Abby politely promises that no one will find him there, but he wails that he knows they can. Jerry barges in suddenly and announces that Abby's brother Eric is on the phone. "WHAT?" Abby bleats, swiveling. "Uh, okay, I'll be right there." She exposits to a puzzled Susan, surprisingly calmly, that she doesn't know what's up with Eric because this is the first time she's heard from him in two months. Wow, has it been that long? Can you believe it? Because it's felt like three hours. Abby turns back to Nutty Pete, who is pitching a quivering fit, and holds down his arms firmly. "They can't scan you in here," she avers. "Radiology is upstairs, and the floors and the walls are lined with lead. And even if they weren't, this place will be blockaded with a thousand anvils by the end of the hour, anyway." Susan looks impressed with Abby's competence. "My name's Abby," she says. "I'm going to help you. Okay?" She looks right into his eyes; he searches hers, understands that he's filling the Eric role for the first half of this episode, and seems satisfied. Susan suggests that they get restraints; Abby foists Insane Mike off onto another nurse so that she can take her phone call.
