Scot settles in beside Jack and offers him his water bottle, which Jack takes without thanking him or anything. Scot wants to know what Jack's excuse is for running like the devil's chasing him. Jack doesn't answer, so Scot says his excuse is that he's training for a race around the world. "Impressive, I know," he says, joking. I'd say they were flirting, but as I intend to continue my crusade to rid TWoP of the notion that a person needs to shout "HoYay!" whenever two male characters share screen time, I won't do that. "So your excuse better be good, brothah," says Scot, and Jack offers only that he's trying to work a few things out. "Ah, a gull, right?" says Scott, although upon further consideration he might have said "girl." Jack says it's a patient. "A gull patient," says Scot, who asks what the gull's name is. "Sarah," says Jack, and Scot, who you'd think would be a little too familiar for Jack's liking, asks what Jack did to her. Jack says he made her a promise he couldn't keep: "I told her I'd fix her, and I couldn't. I failed." Well, that seems to have finally wiped the grin off Scot's face. "Wow," he says, before adding all Columbo, "Just one thing. What if you did fix her?" "I didn't," says Jack. "What if you did?" insists Scot, who might wind up with a punch in the face if he's not careful. "You don't know what you're talking about, man," which would be the North American equivalent of Scot's "brothah." So now we know they're being straight with each other. "I don't? Why not?" "Because in her situation, that would be a miracle, 'brother.'" Ah, there's that Jack standoffishness, after he got Scot's medical advice and water bottle. "And you don't believe in miracles," says Scot, who then offers this advice: "You have to lift it up." And Jack's quite confused as to just what the hell "lift it up" is supposed to mean, as am I, until Scot says he was talking about Jack's ankle, which we all know he wasn't AT ALL.
