And now Taub gets his chance to tell Evan how awesome his life is while they wait for the tracer-filled iodine Evan has drunk to work its way through his system. "You must do okay with women, huh?" Taub asks. That's a weird question to ask your patient, especially knowing that he may have impotence problems and the last time he got an erection it caused a heart attack. Maybe sex should be an off-limits question at this point? "It's not all it's cracked up to be," Evan says. "He feels unfulfilled," Kumar interjects. Um, Kumar? No one asked for your opinion. Shhh. Taub thinks he has a special understanding of Evan's situation as he used to be a plastic surgeon, and people said his work was shallow and meaningless, too. But he also got to see boobies, so that was cool. "Meaning doesn't mean that much," Taub concludes. I guess he didn't do much work on child burn victims during his time as a plastic surgeon. Evan points out that Taub isn't a plastic surgeon anymore and asks if he's happier with what he's doing now. "It's complicated," Taub answers to both questions. So it's okay for you to ask your patient personal questions, but when he turns the tables on you, you get all elusive? Lame, Taub. Meanwhile, Kumar is trying to do real work, so he checks out the monitor and says Evan's thyroid looks normal. The monitor, however, does not. It seems brighter than usual. Kumar realizes that's because the tracer is actually everywhere in Evan's body because he isn't filtering the iodine properly. "His kidneys are failing," Taub reports. You'd think Evan would have noticed that sooner.
