I love my man
I'm a liar if I say I don't
But I'll quit my man
I'm a liar if I say I won't
But an electron can be here and also over here, he says. Which, I know what he's talking about, it's entanglement and I've written about it more than once, but his conclusions are that if an electron can be in more than one place, then an atom, as it contains electrons, can also be in multiple places, and since Eddie and Jackie are made out of atoms, they can be in two places at once. Which she is, but he doesn't know that.
Two full Jackies, maybe more, giving 100% wherever they find themselves, and even though he's the one telling the story he won't believe it when it comes true. He thinks he's talking about their story, about moving forward into another universe, another parallel, in which they can finally be together, without secrets. He thinks his life is ending tomorrow, but a new one can begin, because they won't both be working in front of the All Saints crew, and there won't be a reason to hide. He's thinking, whether or not Gloria saves him from this, finds him a place, it won't matter because he and Jackie will have skipped through the looking-glass, into a world where they are safe, and free. He'll never understand she's already both: she's like an electron already, living in both places. Entangled.
I've been your slave
Ever since I've been your babe
But before I be your dog
I'll see you in your grave
Zoey grabs her in the hallway, worrying at the thought of Mr. Everett's foot like a dog, feeling they should have done more at his last visit than give him clean clothes and a meal tray. Jackie assures her he wouldn't have been any different in the long run, but Zoey's not convinced. "Yeah, but it was just a gross little blister before, and now it's like gack. Well now it's gone, but before they cut it off it was dead. I feel terrible." Zoey reminds her that she suggested they have a doctor look at the foot last time, and Jackie straight-up denies it. Oh, Jacks.
Zoey goes through her notes and Jackie -- awesomely, but wrongfully -- says, "Zoey, I remember everything I have ever said." It's right there in Zoey's bubble-writing: "Greet & Street." Jackie leaves Zoey there with her notes, to go find Coop, whom Zoey tells her is in Exam Room #3, door locked. "That is why I don't date doctors," Zoey says firmly to herself, and Jackie forces her way into the room, where Coop is pantsless. "All fuckin' day, Coop!" she says, laughing at him in her rage. He starts to ask about the case, but she just blows him off and leaves, yelling at him about how useless he is and not even worried about the total fraud she's in the middle of perpetrating. She leaves like a hurricane and Melissa's like, "Now I remember her!"
