Back from commercials, Gangly Doctor complains to Dr. Shandar about Bad Kid. Sid calls him an "ankle biter." Then he complains about going to the movies with a crying baby. Then they complain about how bad movies are these days. Oh, how very postmodern of them.
There's no change with Dr. Boies' dad. It might be too soon to actually see any change. At least the tumour hasn't grown. Non-Lenny and Dr. Gideon discuss the Billy Dee Miracle Dad. It's a good way to keep a guest spot going: appear in one episode, and then let a body double stand in for you while pretend doctors pretend to treat your fake cancer. They share a "Fatherhood" Moment. We move on
to the War of the Second-Generation Roses, where Mrs. Angry Wife has changed her mind about seeing a doctor. At least Dr. Angry the Husband isn't gloating -- that much.
Ellenor is resting comfortably. Ben is sitting almost directly on top of her, trying to figure a way out of this medical puzzle.
Again, we're walking and talking as we quickly cut to his solution: he's going to give her Heparin. Ollie doesn't quite understand. It's a blood thinner. Exactly. Ben thinks the drugs will clear up all the debris and then cause the blood vessels to relax. Dr. Klein shrugs, "Seems more like magic then science." Gideon wants to know if she has a better idea.
A view from under a white sheet reveals Dr. Levkowitz taking a look at the Angry Wife. She's fine. Her stomach cramps can be attributed to the muscles around the uterus stretching and growing. Damn. That does sound painful. They couple argues in front of the doctor about eating ribs. Then Mrs. Cooper tells the Dr. Levkowitz she wants to have the baby at home. Dr. L has no problem with this, and even offers to recommend some good midwives. Then, instead of one heartbeat on the ultrasound, there are two! The angry couple is having twins! Double the fun! Double the trouble. Double the divorce settlement.
Jimmy holds his vigil at Ellenor's bedside. Ben's there, ordering Dr. Klein to "get a complete set of bloods." Ellie wakes up and sees him there. "Welcome back!" Ellenor mumbles, "You're smiling?" He says that so far, everything's just fine. Jimmy grins. We feel a Mega-Moment coming on. Ellenor cracks, "Jimmy! You look as bad as I feel." He's just relieved she's okay. Ben looks at the monitor and exclaims, "The blood pressure's come down." Ollie insists it was the Heparin. But it wasn't the drug; it was Ben Gideon, Medical Magician, and his Merry Band of Plain Old Dumb Luck. See, I told you everything was going to be fine.
