Man. For a non-medical show, this show sure has a lot of hospital scenes. Joan and Adam slowly approach Judith's bed. And for someone who's been stabbed multiple times, and suffered a ton of blood loss, Judith sure does look good. And clean. Very, very clean. A little pale, maybe, but frankly she looks better here than I do on a daily basis. I highly doubt the nurses would have had time to wash and dry her hair. Not to nitpick too much, but Judith was going into this drug deal near the beginning of Joan's and Adam's meal. Even if they stayed at the restaurant for three or four hours, which seems unlikely, or went for a walk afterward, and were out for maybe a total of five hours, that still isn't a lot of time to get stabbed, get found, get transported to hospital, get operated on, come out of anaesthesia, and be scrubbed up for visitors. Even if we add a couple of hours of waiting around the hospital, it's still not a lot of time. She only has a tube up each nostril, too. Frink can't believe she doesn't have a punctured lung, or something. And if they haven't stopped the internal bleeding, shouldn't they still be trying to do something about it? Geez, it's not like she's a crack whore with no medical insurance. Her parents seem quite affluent. Where is the medical care, here? Adam stays near the end of the bed, looking anxious. Joan reaches down and curls a finger between Judith's fingers, gently prying her hand off the sheet. It's the same tenderness with which she touched Adam's hand when they were kissing, even if the intent is different. Judith's eyes flutter slightly and then open slowly. When she sees Joan, she says, "Hey." Joan makes an effort at a smile and returns the "hey." Judith's first question: "How was it?" Joan says it was fine. Judith looks disappointed: "That's all? Come on." Joan says it doesn't really matter now: "You should just rest." Judith: "It totally matters. Was it great?" Joan nods. Judith weakly pulls Joan down toward her: "How was the kissing?" Joan emits a small chuckle and then glances in Adam's direction, though not far enough to make eye contact, and whispers, "It was perfect." She smiles, and Judith laughs faintly.
