Addison's in her scrubs, checking out Morgan before surgery. She tells her that her stats look good, so she will see her in the O.R. As she's leaving, Morgan asks if she's seen Noah. He hasn't come or answered his phone. She can't do this without him, so would Addison please find him for her. That is so not your doctor's job even if she's not in love with your husband. Ridiculous.
Charlotte storms in to Cooper's office and asks what was so important she had to come up here in the middle of her day. He wants to throttle someone, because he's all upset about Sarah's situation. He says he had to walk out of a consult so he didn't explode at Yvonne. He says he should have called Family Services. Charlotte asks if this isn't what he wanted: for Yvonne to step up and parent. He says yes, but she's dictating an abortion to a twelve-year-old. Charlotte asks if that's wrong, and he says probably not, but he sees what this is doing to Sarah and he finds it hard to forgive. Charlotte says he forgave her. For worse. I'm not sure if it's "worse." I mean, they are both bad, so it's hard to rate.
Pete's at the front desk with Dell when Ben and his mom storm in. Ben's pale, but the mom doesn't know what's wrong. He was having trouble swallowing, and is feeling dizzy. She says he's never had a problem with food before; it's always been environmental. Ben gasps that he can't breath. Pete gives him an adrenaline shot to open up his airwaves, as Ben continues to gasp. Ultimately the gasping slows and he's breathing easily again. Mom thanks him, and she and Pete hold hands. It's very weird, so I'm agreeing that it's inappropriate.
Duncan's questioning Sam again, asking if Dr. Allen did everything he could have reasonably done to save the patient. Sam says yes, but then Duncan asks if he would have done anything differently. Sam says not given what Dr. Allen knew at the time. Duncan's annoyed, but done questioning. The other attorney asks what he meant by "given what Dr. Allen knew at the time." Sam says Dr. Allen was working fast, and was under a lot of pressure, so he didn't stop to look at the full medical history. He wasn't aware of an aspirin allergy. The family's attorney says that isn't in their discovery. Sam says Dr. Allen swapped out one of the pages from the file. Sam looks less than happy about doing the right thing. Duncan yells at Sam on the street, saying he should have come to him and tell him, but Sam says that would have put him in an impossible situation. Duncan asks if what he did was better. Sam says Duncan wanted him here as an expert, and he is a doctor, but part of people trusting him with their lives means telling the truth. Even when it's hard, he has to. Duncan says Sam should have come to him, and walks off.
