In Isaac's office, Dana is in the familiar position of fumbling around looking for something while cradling the phone on her shoulder, except that this time she's talking to Isaac, but we don't get to hear him or anything. Dana says everything's under control, except she can't find her shoes. She pauses, and apparently Isaac asks her if she looked on her feet, and she calls that a funny joke and then tells Isaac that he's a senile old man and that this stroke is a punishment for not being nicer to her. Pause. "Then why won't you let me come down there?" she says. She repeats that as Natalie comes in. Natalie, discerning that it's Isaac, starts pleading for the phone, but Dana won't give it to her and tells Isaac that Natalie's there but she's not interested in talking to stubborn people (not angrily, you understand, but with affectionate admonishment). After she hangs up the phone, Dana tells Natalie that Isaac made it up and down the corridor with a cane. Natalie's excited about this, but then Dana starts whining that Isaac won't let them visit him. Natalie warns Dana to let that go, but Dana won't. Natalie tries explaining that Isaac is "a man of tremendous dignity and accomplishment" who can't use the left side of his body, and he doesn't want them to see him like that. Natalie then asks Dana what's wrong, and she means in terms of Dana's sudden forgetfulness. Dana at first says she doesn't know, then admits that she doesn't like when Casey's mad at her. "I know," says Natalie. "He's never going to stop being mad at me," says Dana. Natalie says he will. "Here's the thing," says Dana (drink!). "He's got a point." Commercials.
