Every time I think I've gotten out of recapping hospital scenes they keep pulling me back in! Damn you, hospital! Damn you straight to HMO Hell! Clark is pacing in a waiting room so dark you need to a book light to read their magazines. Pete shows up carrying a little camera. Chloe told him there was some big story at the hospital. Clark grabs Pete and starts to usher him out. There is no story. It was the only way Clark could think to get Chloe to the hospital. Clark has figured out the truth about the "truth gas." I know in the house I grew up, there was nothing deceptive about the gas. We always knew where that green truth cloud was coming from. Clark is holding Pete's arm a little too tightly. Pete gets the message. He needs to get out of there before he lets loose the dogs of Clark's secret to Chloe. The elevator opens. Pete walks in without noticing that there's someone else in it. CHLOE! Pete's scared. He tries to get out. Chloe stops him and asks why Pete's trying to get away from her. Pete says he doesn't want to have to tell her the truth. Clark, panicked, pries open the elevator door and gets between Chloe and Pete. Chloe pushes Clark aside and asks why they're playing such a "zone defense" on her. "What is the big secret, Pete?" Chloe asks. Pete shakes and then plants one right on Chloe's lips. Wooo! Chloe is agog. Even Clark is surprised. Pete exhales with more passion that we've seen from him in the entire run of the series. "I'm in love with you, Chloe," he says. Chloe is horrified. Pete says he's been waiting to do that since the first day he met her. Chloe is having trouble sorting through this bit of truth. She asks why he didn't tell her sooner. Pete says it's because of how she felt about Clark, and he never saw the point. This elevator suddenly feels about ten cubic feet smaller. The elevator door opens and Pete gets out of there. Chloe tries to stop him, but Pete just turns and tells Chloe that if there's something wrong with her (physically, he means), she needs to take care of it. "Please!" Pete begs, and runs away to nurse his wounded heart. Awww, Pete. Chloe turns to Clark, and then suddenly doubles over in pain. Pete's...onion...breath! Chloe moans in pain. Clark calls for help. All the medical extras leap into action. A doctor and nurse lead Chloe to a waiting wheelchair and take her to Exam 3. Clark doesn't follow. Commercials!
