Jamie says, "The question is who -- better yet, why." John: "My thoughts exactly." Ah, they're in tandem. It's "blue" love -- instead of Cupid's arrows, the two get shot by rubber bullets, straight to the heart. Captain Jamie looks a bit skittish. She says, "Keep me updated, Frank. I've got to get out of here." John steps into the room and says, "Magic trick, Frank -- how do you get a body out without the audience noticing?" John leaves Frank to ponder that as he sees Jamie just sort of hanging out in the stairwell, looking nauseous. John asks, "Are you okay?" She turns back to him and replies, "Yeah. Fine." He insists, "You know, you're not fine." Jamie turns to head down the stairs, and with her back turned to him, she replies, "You know, I've got to go." John keeps talking: "I'm claustrophobic, colour-blind, like spicy hot dogs and hate tequila." John sits on the upper stairwell. The handrail blocks their love. He continues, "And sometimes I do the stock market for fun. There. Something you know about me. Your turn." A guitar strums in honour of their love. Captain Jamie warms up for an instant: "I'm not too fond of hospitals, there." Doe looks pleased with himself, so he tosses in a little factoid, you know, for the warm, bonding nature of knowledge. "You know, 22.2 percent of the population is afraid of the doctor." Wow. He sucks at comforting. Their love is starting to suffer. Captain Jamie: "I'm not afraid of doctors." John blabs, "Nosocomephobia: anxious, irrational fear of hospitals --" Their love begins to wane. Captain Jamie snaps, "Do you ever stop?" He looks hurt. She looks sorry for snapping, and before she rushes off down the stairs, she says, "Just forget it, there are some things that you obviously don't know." Now, if this were the WB, Doe would run after her, get caught in the rain, kiss her, and never want to find out his identity again -- he'd be happy in love for about five minutes, and then they'd fight, break up, and he'd be back on his Identity Quest, only this time in a different city. John sits on the stairwell and contemplates the fact that he can't add Captain Jamie to that "friend" list just yet.
