When we return, Dr. Ben agitatedly (though not exactly angrily) gives Lily the lowdown on Unnamed Wife: she was shot in robbery five years ago and has been in a "minimally conscious state" ever since. Lily asks if Ryan knows, which doesn't seem entirely unreasonable given the secrecy surrounding today's excursion, but Ben says he's not that big of an ass. Lily leaps to his defense immediately, saying he's certainly not an ass but actually rather incredible for soldiering on the way he has. Ben shuts down the hero worship immediately with this bucket of cold water: he's kept her hooked up to machines for the last five years so he could continue to use her trust fund to bankroll the clinic. So there's that. He's no hero, he tells Lily; it's more complicated than that. He tells her to take the truck back to the Clinic; he'll stay the night.
La Clinica. Zee and Plastics are explaining to Elan that the medication didn't do anything to alleviate his priapism (something tells me Elan noticed). So the next step is sticking a needle in and draining it. Elan refuses, until they tell him he could become impotent. That's kind of a Godwin's Law in its own right. Zee can't promise that it won't hurt like a motherfucker, but it will also solve his problem. Elan counters that his real problem will be his humiliation after he leaves. ...Wait, even though he's refusing to tell even his girlfriend about it? Is the Clinica rumor mill that strong? Anyway, partially as a way to distract Elan and partially as a way to get him to treat Alma better, Plastics starts telling Elan a story about how being vulnerable actually helps you with the chicks. Case in point: how he lost his virginity as a college freshman to some upper class chick who dug it when he finally dropped his bravado. Yeah, something tells me that strategic dropping of bravado has worked really well for Plastics over the years. Anyway, his story ends triumphantly, with him doing it with the girl 'til the sun came up. Elan: "Verdad?" Plastics: "Si, Si, si, si." So cute. Anyway, even Zee is impressed by Plastics right here. Even when he flat-out tells Elan that he's "got a good girl out there; don't throw that away."
