We return from the commercial to see Cameron waving a finger in the guy's face. The guy, named Kyle, says that he can see fine now, but Cameron will always wave her finger in his face. Kyle says that he's had seizures before, although none this bad. Doctors haven't been able to figure out what's wrong with him and apparently gave up. Cameron asks if he has a family history of epilepsy. Just "hutzpah" and "the ability to sleep for ten years," Kyle answers. "Hutzpah"? Who is this guy, Lou Grant? My grandmother? Who says that? Anyway, Kyle continues that he doesn't know much about his mother's side of the family, due to her being dead and his father not liking them very much and being in a vegetative state besides. As for his father's side of the family, his grandparents are dead and his father was an only child. Cameron notices that Kyle left the "emergency contact" section of his admission papers blank. He says that he has "plenty of friends," but none of them would care if he was having a medical emergency. Which I believe makes them "passing acquaintances" and not friends. Really, one of the definitions of a friend is someone who cares if you're in the hospital. Cameron tries to resist the urge to marry her lonely patient. Kyle asks Chase to give him his backpack. Chase picks it up and hears the telltale clanking of glass bottles. He opens it up to find a half-empty bottle of wine. "Hair of the dog," Kyle says sheepishly. Some alcoholic he is! It's called "vodka," Kyle. Cameron and Chase just stare at him with "oh, wonderful plan, Junior" looks on their faces.
