Will's waiting at an elevator -- the kind with doors on both sides that open at once -- when Helen, facing the other direction, gets off on the other side. Will walks into the elevator, while Helen stops, and turns, trying to figure out which way to go. They both see each other at the same time, and become alarmed. Will walks through the elevator and walks toward his wife. She asks, "What is it?" Will doesn't know. Helen: "Why are you here?" Will: "Why are you?" She says she had a feeling. He asks her what kind. Suddenly Kevin calls out to them: "Mom! Dad. Where the hell have you been? I've been calling." Helen says as Luke walks over, "It's Joan, isn't it?" Luke says the doctor has the labs.
Back in her hospital room, Joan is still grilling the God Squad, albeit weakly: "What's the big idea? I was just walking around minding my own business and you introduced yourself and starting dropping in like a bad boyfriend." Joan puts her cup on the bed tray in frustration and sits up a little in bed: "I do everything that you ask. I -- I -- I -- embarrass myself and humiliate myself in really creative ways. I don't have sex which I easily could have. I do all of this to make you happy, even though before we met, I didn't even believe in you. And what's my reward? Warts. Barfing. A fever. And now " She whispers: "Silence." She looks around at their unmoving -- and unmoved -- expressions. She half-hollers, "Give me something, if you don't mind!" Still nothing. She flops back on the bed in frustration.
