In the ambulance, Carlos asks what happened. Doc, we can now see, has some scratches on the side of his face. Carlos wants to know if he interfered with an arrest. Doc says he was thrown on the ground. "What did you do?" Carlos asks. Doc explains, and Carlos says that Doc should have known that would get him slammed. "What world did you grow up in?" Carlos asks. My cat yells out, "Bizarro World-World-World!" from the next room. Johnnie Cochran looks annoyed. Doc says he doesn't want to live in a world like that. Doc asks Carlos if he thinks the cops were right. "No," Carlos says, "I think they were consistent." Wow, that's some good dialogue. Why waste it on Carlos?
Carlos and Doc stop to find Bosco standing over a black guy and yelling. As they arrive, Yokas explains that the guy got hit by a car as he was running from Bosco. "Another dangerous suspect," Doc mutters. Doc is getting increasingly militant. He's got a black beret stashed in the back of the ambulance, and he's not afraid to put it on. Doc brushes Bosco aside and examines the guy. He has a bloody broken ankle. Doc asks Bosco to remove the handcuffs since the guy's not going anywhere. Bosco, who is still hovering, refuses. Doc finally convinces Bosco to walk away. "All of a sudden I'm supposed to cry a river for this junkie?" Bosco asks. Doc hops up and tackles Bosco from behind. I want to cheer, but this is the one instance in Third Watch history where somebody else besides Bosco is more wrong. Doc and Bosco struggle, and then they're pulled apart. "Why don't you pick on this monkey!" Doc yells, "I'm not seventeen and afraid!" Apparently, Doc thought Bosco called the guy a "monkey." Carlos clarifies: it was "junkie." Bosco says, "You've got issues, man," and walks away. For once, Bosco's last word is correct.
Back in the ambulance: Carlos is going on and on about a mistake he caught on a test the day before. Doc stares at the road blankly, and we see things from his point of view, a conceit used often in this episode. Carlos concludes with, "At least today can't get any worse." Doc reminds him that today he has to apologize to Bosco. Oooh, that is a bad day.
