Carlos and Doc arrive at an apartment where smoke is coming out of a stove. A mentally handicapped woman explains that she was trying to cook a turkey, but the fire had gone out and when she lit a match, it went "boom." Okay, first of all, a gas oven? Doc helps the woman, Darla, and makes sure she's okay. Her husband, Charlie, who is also mentally handicapped, announces, "I'm hungry!" Doc asks if anyone comes to help them out. Alex, Warrior Firefighter, horns in on the conversation. Doc tells Darla that he's going to take her to the hospital. Darla, who feels fine, says she hates hospitals and doctors. She argues that she doesn't want to go. Doc tries to entice her by offering Darla and Charlie a ride in the ambulance. Oh, please. Darla says she needs to make Charlie something to eat. Darla starts to yell and Alex butts in on Doc's business saying the woman only has minor burns. Carlos says, "Maybe she should stick to take-out." Alex laughs. Doc gets righteous and says that it isn't funny. He talks to them both outside. "These two people can't take care of themselves," he says. Alex argues. "Don't you have a fire to put out or something?" he retorts. Low blow, Doc. Alex asks Carlos what Doc's problem is and Carlos replies, "That's Monte Parker saving the world one patient at a time."
Next thing -- Carlos and Doc are walking through a university hall. It's weird to see Carlos in school because, well, he has no class. Thanks, Fat Albert -- I knew that joke would come in handy someday. Doc complains about how young all the students look. Carlos shows Doc his fruit flies. They are sterile or etherized or something. As they're talking, a woman comes up and sweetly says, "Hi Carlos." She's not a bimbo, so Carlos abruptly and rudely holds up a hand and says, "I can't talk right now." She goes away. The last vestige of a soul within Carlos also flits away. "Put my virgins down," Carlos tells Doc, randomly. The instructor walks in, calling Carlos, "the bus driver" and Carlos starts whining to him about needing more time for his project. The teacher is reluctant, but gives in to the sheer power of nagging that is Carlos. Doc takes a call on the radio. Turns out Carlos has bad test scores. Imagine the shift in mindset I'm having over my surprise in absorbing this information.
Outside at night, Carlos, Bobby and Kim are walking together for no reason other than to have an inane conversation about holiday shopping. Bobby and Kim seem to think it's funny that people shop at outlets and that Bobby's mom clips coupons. Hey, I clip coupons! Carlos pipes in that the outlets have good prices on irregular items. Kim makes fun of him. All of a sudden, Carlos and I are united in our hatred of Kim. Doc walks up behind them and Carlos points out that Beverly has just pulled up in her car. He gives Doc the old "Nudge Nudge, Wink Wink" and tells him not to do anything he wouldn't do. What exactly, Carlos, would that be? Setting fire to a school while reading the Bible, maybe?
