Cut to Kellerman showing off a wallet pic of his kid to Lopez. Lopez oohs and aahhs and says that Kellerman's wife must be beautiful. Kellerman has just enough time to smile that she is before Lopez turns the conversation back to himself, and how they both know he'll never be well enough to get a heart transplant and so he'll be dead soon. Lopez says again that he wants to go home and launches into some guilt-fest pity party about how he never expected to be part of his son's life again and zzzzz. It takes defter fingers than that to tug on these rusty heartstrings. Kellerman's heartstrings are prime for the plucking, however, and he mists over, promising Lopez that he'll get him out of there. Promises, promises. Lopez nods sadly, but he doesn't hold out much hope. He knows his plot line is good for ten minutes of easy filler an episode.
Cut to Kellerman flicking through medical catalogs. That female surgeon who likes to complain about everything comes in to complain about the film crew. Kellerman pops out of his chair, pointing triumphantly to a picture in the catalog. The surgeon, whom I'll call Wendy Whiner since I have no idea what her actual name is, comes over to see what the excitement is all about. It's some portable blood-pumping gizmo called a Mobile LVAD unit. It's Lopez's ticket outta there. Kellerman tears out the page and runs out, leaving Wendy Whiner to muse, "It doesn't really do it for me, doc. But then, I'm an old-fashioned girl." I can't believe I actually just bothered to transcribe that.
Cut to Dalgety and Gina, still trapped in their little den of iniquity. Observant gal that she is, Gina says it looks like they're stuck there. She asks, "Why don't we make the best of it?" Dalgety makes a quip about his batteries, but she clarifies that she meant they could talk, since they haven't really done a lot of that. "And rrruin an perrrfectly good rrrrelationship?" he kids. She says she's trying to be serious. He sighs and his face falls. Removing his hand from her grip, he says, "Look, let's not be serrrious." They look at each other awkwardly. Gina breaks the tension by chuckling and saying that this is the most time they've spent together, and she's never seen him outside the hospital. Dalgety paces away, even more uncomfortable, and says that she doesn't want to see him outside the hospital. He turns and sees her crestfallen look, so he resigns himself to trying to talk to her. He asks lamely how long she's been at the hospital and whether she likes it. She says she does, and sidles over to him, saying that she's thinking of putting in for a promotion to O.R. cleaning. Dalgety quickly says that he doesn't know "how any of that housekeeping stuff works," so he can't help her. Offended, she snaps that she wasn't asking him to. He scrambles to cover his mistake, but she heads for the door, leaving a trail of guilt in her wake. Disgusted, she storms out, not caring that the film crew is right there. A few seconds later, Dalgety follows her, looking around sheepishly. Coones, overseeing the film crew's activities, spots the exodus with a start. Looks like Dalgety's sexuality isn't such a mystery anymore, hmmm? Coones tries not to cry.
