The Australian-accented medical staff makes an appearance. Explaining how it happened, Parvati says, "I was chopping a coconut with a machete, and I chopped off my finger instead." I'm sure cutting your finger hurts, but it is not the same as cutting your finger off. Okay, there's no need to embellish. "The good news is that you're not going to need to trim your thumbnail for a while," says the doctor. He does want to put one stitch into her thumb. This will start, of course, with a shot. It turns out that Parvati was maybe thinking they would take her to a nice hospital for her stitch, but they're going to stitch her up while she lies there on the ground. "You're being so brave, Parvati," Jonathan says, because she's scared, and he's a dad, and it's a game show. Adam, on the other hand, is a puss, and he tee-hees in an interview, "There's something about fingernails falling off that really bothers me." So he wouldn't look while they were giving Parvati the shot. Because nothing calms your injured friend like you comically hiding your eyes because what's happening to her is so gross and terrifying. He adds that he was upset by the whole thing "mainly because" the Rarovians are "a dying breed," and that he thought about the effect on the game. Adam, I'm sure that Parvati appreciates that you were considering the effects of gangrene on the bottom line.
