Anyway. Doe doesn't let the doctor leave. "What about my amnesia?" Dr. "Just Stop Wasting My Time" McRush writes something down on a chart. He says, "In all likelihood, it's just an hysterical reaction." John: "I'm not hysterical. There's something different about me." Dr. McSnottypants blurts, "I'm certainly not going to argue that point." And then he books. While the patient is still trying to talk to him. Doe-O-Vision notices a kid grabbing his abdomen and wincing in pain. He asks the kid where it hurts. After seeing where the child points, he asks the mother: "Has he been nauseous, low-grade fever, bathroom a lot?" Mom nods. Doe grabs a passing male nurse and says, "There's a good chance this boy has acute appendicitis and he need to see a doctor before his appendix erupts." The nurse nods his head, then runs off to get a real doctor. Why does he listen to Doe? John's actions start a flurry in the ER waiting room. He diagnoses a man, and then tells him to get a chest x-ray. A fake Seacouver skateboarder walks over to Doe and says, "Hey, dude -- my shoulder's totally dislocated." The ENTIRE staff of the ER watches as John Doe treats three of their patients without being a doctor, nurse, nurse's aid, emergency medical technician, or hell, even a pharmaceutical representative. Anyway. Ouch. Doe puts the guy's shoulder back into place. Dr. Pissypants comes running back out, I guess because he's the only guy in this episode who isn't actually an extra, and says, "Excuse me! What are you doing?" Doe stutters, "I really need your help--" Dr. Buttnut says, "No. I want you out of here before I call security." Then he hands Doe a card for a psychiatrist. As the doctor walks away, Doe screams, "Been there. Done that. Don't you get it? I don't know my own name!" Then he flips off the doctor before he leaves the hospital. Okay, he doesn't flip off the doctor, but he does fling the card aside with reckless abandon and heedless disrespect for potential paper cuts.
