Outside, there's a black limousine parked at the curb. Lisa indicates the sweet ride and asks, "Carter, what is this?" He asks if she thought they were going to take the El. Getting in, she asks whether he's going to take her to the airport and tell her, by the way, that the party's in Paris; Carter promises that they'll be staying in Chicago.
At the hospital, Mark -- still minus his cap -- orders a bunch of tests for some guy. He spots Elizabeth through the window in the next room, and meets her in the hall. She comments that he lost the cap, and he tells her he decided to wear his scar with pride. She agrees that it adds character. Mark says it actually scared a little kid, who called him "Humpty Dumpty." Um. Yeah. He called you that because of the scar, and for no other reason. Elizabeth asks him how he feels about an evening service. Mark asks to what service she's referring, and she tells him she's talking about the wedding; double-booked, five o'clock, blah blah blah. Mark's going to die before this wedding ever happens, so who cares? The upshot is that they won't be able to use the patio because the reception will be in the evening and it'll be too cold. Mark suggests, "Ask him to move out the...uh...um...you know...uh...space heaters!" Elizabeth looks concerned at his struggling, but plays it off: "So it's all right with you." "Yeah, sure," says Mark, and then braces himself against a nearby table, in shame. Elizabeth makes to leave, and then turns back to say, "Mark, you're getting better. The aphasia's fading." Mark says he's glad she thinks so. He doesn't add that he's glad she just practically yelled the word "aphasia" in a hallway where any of their many co-workers could hear her admit to the condition they're trying to keep secret -- and by the way, now we know that when Weaver asked her last week whether she'd noticed Mark's transposing her pronouns, Elizabeth was totally lying when she said she hadn't! Anyway, Elizabeth says that it really is fading, and that it'll be totally gone in a couple of weeks. Mark says he doesn't think he can trust her to be unbiased. She plummily agrees that she is biased, but that she's also right. Before there can be any further discussion, Lily pokes her head out to tell Elizabeth that Nick's just arrested. Elizabeth takes off, grateful -- as any of us would be -- for the distraction.
