Lenny brings in a sassy little kept-man husband and presumably his wife, reporting to Jackie that it's a possible DV. Jackie explains to the woman, Suzie, that DV stands for "domestic violence," and asks if that's true. The lady's like, "Technically yes?" But only after he hit her. Except, the gushing-blood guy points out, that she cracked his head open with a jar of cashews. They quibble over money and he says she kicked him. She acts like this is not classy, that he would actually tell medical workers about his medical condition, and sort of throws her hands up like, "Men!" He tells her to call her mother up and bitch about him some more, and she screams, "Fuck you!" Jackie finally steps, telling her to chill, but she does not chill.
Bandaging the guy's head, and nursing a grudge against horrible old Suzie that causes her to be a bit more present and sympathetic than usual, Jackie calls for another pair of hands. The wound is totally gross, just shooting blood everywhere, so she can't let go of it. There's no Zoey, no Thor, no nothing. Finally Gloria Akalitus comes in, and immediately springs into action like a superhero. I guess she's on the floor because it's a full moon and they need all the help they can get, but what really gets me about this episode is how great she is at it, and how well she works with all of them as a nurse. It almost makes you sad that she made it to Hosp Admin. I mean, I wouldn't say she got Peter Principled -- she's awesome either way -- but watching her in action is really satisfying.
The EMTs, having been met by nobody out in the bay, bring in a guy with chest pains and stuff, and Jackie and Gloria do this balletic kind of choreography, almost without words, to take care of them both. Jackie promises to wait on Guy #2's EKG, if Gloria will grab her some morphine for the head injury. She leaves, muttering, "Gotta go find out where these other fuckers are..."
The fuckers are in the Pill-O-Matix room, which is once again broken. Gloria shoves her way to the front of the line, and seethes madly. "All right, everyone. Listen very carefully, because I'm only gonna say this once: This machine is a piece of shit."
