Benefit. Big skeleton of what I would guess is a triceratops. Lisa looks very cute in pink; it really flatters her skin. Carter introduces Lisa to his grandfather, played by George Plimpton. Grandpa Carter is all smooth WASPy charm, but Plimpton looks like he's reading his cue cards off Maura Tierney's chest. Grandpa makes some mention of Gamma, who's off with the keynote speaker, Jackie's husband Walt. Carter and Lisa move on, Lisa chaffing Carter about the date he was supposed to have brought (who Grandpa had mentioned). Carter changes the subject to dancing, and whether Lisa ever took classes. Lisa says she hasn't, and Carter says he has, and that he's got a few moves. Lisa says she's sure he does. They dance. They're cute. Lisa tells a story about her spring formal, involving her juggling two guys. Do you get it? I do. Email me if you want me to explain it to you.
Hospital. Luka comes in to check on Bishop Cromwell, telling him he didn't forget him and giving him a test result. Bishop Cromwell is still watching Nick through the window, and says, "I watched you work on that boy." Luka's like, "Whatever." Bishop Cromwell says, "It was remarkable. You brought him back to life." Luka says, "Yes. It won't do much good if he doesn't have the surgery." Bishop Cromwell asks, "You can't find him a heart?" Luka tells Bishop Cromwell Nick's business -- namely, that Nick doesn't want a heart. Dude, what is with people spilling secrets all over this episode? Bishop Cromwell comments, "But he's so young! There are bound to be medical advancements! You've gotta fight!" Luka notes, "One could say the same to you, Bishop." Bishop Cromwell says that he is fighting. Luka gently asks, "Are you? You say he should prolong his life, but you want to hasten your death?" Bishop Cromwell says, "I'm not looking forward to dying, Dr. Kovac. But I also don't want to be enfeebled, or bedridden." Luka murmurs, "I think you've been more than brave." "Have I?" Bishop Cromwell asks rhetorically, adding, "I wanted to set a good example -- serve my parish, do God's work as long as I was able, and then go to glory with a modicum of grace. But there are times when I'm alone -- at prayer, or trying to get to sleep -- when it just overwhelms me. I should never feel the way I do sometimes." "How's that?" Luka asks. "Frightened," says Bishop Cromwell. I thought for sure he was going to say, "In despair," which is a big sin for Catholics.
In the hall, Dr. Dave asks Jeff if he has a phone number. Jeff says he does. Dr. Dave suggests that Jeff call the next day and make an appointment, and Jeff says he'll see. With HatefulSean a little ways down the hall, Jeff turns and thanks Dr. Dave, shaking his hand. Jeff turns to go, but Dr. Dave asks him, quietly enough that HatefulSean might not hear, "Are you going to protect yourself from now on?" "Maybe. Probably not," says Jeff. D'oh!
