Otto and his dog come on by, and Otto looks in to see Rolf sitting up at a 90-degree angle, illuminated by that bright light and looking around in a sort of malevolent daze as a highly trained medical team reveals that the first activity they gave up in their zeal to make the medical grade was choir practice. Honestly? This doesn't really creep me out so much as bug me, because it reminds me of that Superbowl 1997 commercial where the E.R. docs are listening to one patient's monitor and they begin singing "Tainted Love," and I'll be darned if I can remember what the product being advertised was. ["I think it was Levi's, but I wouldn't swear to it." -- Sars] Dr. Whatsername pushes the staring Rolf back down on the gurney as she sings, and he discreetly peers up and checks them still singing. Know what else this reminds me of? That scene in Twelve Monkeys where Bruce Willis comes to and all the doctors sing, "I got my thrill / on Blueberry Hill " Anyway, Otto heads off singing as well. No word from the dog.
And now, Drs. Draper and Hook pull one over on Dr. James re: Mrs. D and her fake stroke. Dr. James signs off on Mrs. D's ten-day stay and waves off Dr. Hook's desultory caution about Dr. Stegman not liking the expense by saying, "Dr. Stegman's got other worries today -- Mona Klingerman's mother."
We see Mrs. Renee Klingerman explode through the hospital's swinging doors and introduce herself to the nurses with a no-nonsense query about Dr. Stegman's arrival time. He's due at 4 PM. She grabs Mona's chart and heads down to the room where her daughter is sitting cross-legged on the bed and rocking back and forth. Mary's there with her, keeping her company and keeping time on the rocking.
