Over at the hospital, the doctor apologizes for keeping them waiting so long, and then tells them the man has stabilized and his vitals are good. "He keeps talking about an Olivia Dunham," says the doctor. Olivia's all, "Present!" and she asks to be taken to him.
She goes, and Broyles excuses himself to take a phone call, and Walter sees that, if Olivia's jacket is anything to go by, she still hasn't learned a valuable correspondence-concealing lesson.
Walter pulls out the St. Claire's form and sees -- much to his relief, as he almost breaks down crying -- that Olivia has checked the "I do NOT recommend hospitalization." Also, she's ordered the kosher meal!
Thankfully, Peter, who's looking out his hospital room window when Olivia comes in, has one of the hospital gowns that don't leave your ass hanging out. He turns around when Olivia comes in. "Olivia. Thank god you're here." Olivia stares at him. "Who are you?" she says. Peter's smile fades. Come on, Peter! Didn't it occur to you that maybe you never actually existed?
