Carol tells C.J. she's on Nanny Nanny Boo Boo tomorrow. C.J.: "I'm gonna carve him into McNuggets." She's apparently doing a seven-minute spot during the noon segment, and will be back by 1 to meet Ben. She tells Carol, "Ask Media Affairs to do a background on Reid's questioning style and a list of recurring topics." Wouldn't she have already pretty much sussed out the former by watching the guy even for a few minutes? It's not like these jackass pundits have all that many tricks up their sleeves. Carol, in her self-appointed role as yenta, informs C.J. that Ben's being transferred to Washington and is looking for advice on where to live. I personally think Katie kicked Ben to the curb and cleared out the bank accounts -- and now Ben's looking for a couch to surf, with possible extracurricular privileges. Or maybe Katie just got a restraining order. Either way, I'm not cottoning to the guy all that much; he doesn't seem to know how to take no for an answer. Abby arrives and gets drawn into Carol's little world of meddlesome matchmaking. Carol informs Abby that Ben is a ranger who works with at-risk kids. Abby approves indifferently. Carol finally buggers off, and Abby advises C.J. that she's going to start volunteering at the Washington Free Clinic. C.J.'s concerned to hear that Abby's practicing medicine again. Abby says she'll just be helping a bit: "I won't be doing any heart transplants." C.J. asks if she's licenced to practice medicine again. Abby reminds her, "I voluntarily chose to stop practicing, C.J. And now I'm choosing to give a few underprivileged toddlers vaccinations. I never said I was hanging up my stethoscope for good."
