Back at the hospital, Patrick is on the phone with Luke, and Patrick says that if Laura is given this new drug, it could put her in a completely vegetative state. Robin comes in as he's talking on the phone and takes it away from him. She tells Luke that Patrick is a good doctor, but in this case, he's in the wrong. She says that she'll talk with Patrick about this treatment. They have an argument about whether the treatment will work.
Kelly brings Patrick coffee, wearing teeny little red pj's, by the way. He explains that Robin offered to share her bed but that he's contagious. Strep throat, he assures her when she looks startled for him. After hearing it's only strep throat, Kelly immediately starts flirting with him, feeling his forehead, etc. Robin pushes in the door with breakfast and warns Kelly that she'd better be careful, "You can't handle what he's got."
Robin pushes Kelly out of the way and gives Patrick a cup of hot soup. He asks if she'll feed him and she declares that she doesn't spoon feed. So Kelly puts on her baby voice and says, "Open wide, here comes the airplane." Then Lainey comes out and when she sees that Patrick isn't feeling well, suddenly her voice gets really high too. She offers to bring magazines home to him tonight if he'll be there, that is. Robin points out that she'll be there too. They all have a good laugh.
At the hospital, Robin tries to get Patrick to consent to a blood count, he has a fever. Robin tells him that if it turns out that he does have HIV, knowledge is power and that he'd better find out sooner than later. Chances are it's a flu bug. But if he is positive, he needs to get on the protocol right away so that he can manage the virus. Patrick tells her that it is infuriating when she is right. He admits that he feels like a coward for not wanting to know his HIV status.
Patrick, staring out the hospital window, tells Robin that the thought of being HIV positive keeps eating at him. He's terrified, regardless of how low his odds are. He tells her that he's not up to the challenge. Robin tells him it's not like training for a marathon. She tells him it's more like finding a way to give the HIV the attention it demands, and then finding time for the rest of your life. She thanked him for finding her and bringing her back to life. And she tells him, if necessary, she's prepared to do the same thing for him.
Robin tells Patrick that his throat culture proves that he has strep throat and that she has picked up his prescription. She offers to take him back to her place for a little TLC. She doesn't want him to stay up half the night searching the internet for HIV info. She tells him that they'll pick up some chicken soup and get out of there. He tells her that he doesn't know what he did to deserve her. "Flattery will open doors that you never imagined," she tells him.
At the hospital, Patrick and Robin are discussing the new procedure for Laura with Luke. Patrick states, "There's not a chance that this treatment will bring Laura back." Robin tells Luke that Dr. Drake is a surgeon and as such, he won't acknowledge that a patient can be helped without surgery. Patrick reminds Luke that Laura's condition was brought on by stress, and if she's brought out of her catatonic state she would still have to deal with the old demons. She could get worse, he warns. Luke wants to know the best case scenario -- if she comes back -- could she stay back -- the way she was? Robin can't make any promises. Luke won't agree to another "round of bead rattling" until he goes to Paris to meet the doctor.
Robin tells Luke that there's a potential treatment for Laura. She explains that a genius that she knew in Paris has been working on a clinical study in memory restoration. She doesn't even know if Laura is a candidate, but asks Luke for permission. Luke said hope is dead and gone. Robin offers no guarantees, but announces that some patients in Europe have had some good preliminary results. It's worth a shot, she thinks. She gives Luke her card and asks him to think about it. "There isn't a day goes by that I don't think about it," says a wistful Luke. He also says, "If you want to do something for her Dr. Robin, please understand that I have to protect whatever dignity she has left."
Out on the pier, Patrick meets up with Robin asking why she left so quickly after the surgery. Robin confides that it shook her up a bit with Alexis telling her to make sure her children love her right before she went under. It tugged at her heartstrings, wanting to be a mother herself, realizing that Alexis sole concern the entire time has been for her children. Patrick tells her to do it – become a mother! Patrick tells her how wrong he was to call Robin a coward and not wanting to face her life. He confesses he has fears about crashing and burning like his dad did or loving someone so much that he'll eventually lose them. She understands and tells him to stop! But he tells her she'd be a great mother and even though there are risks – risks are open to anyone.
Sam overhears Lainey & Alexis discuss Ric and she tells Alexis that her feelings are utmost important and should let Sam know what Alexis saw.
Patrick discusses the surgery with Alexis and explains the complications. He also explains the miniscule chance that she could be exposed to end stage AIDS because of the incident earlier in the month. Robin attests to Patricks' professionalism and ability to use every precaution available so nothing will happen during the surgery.
Alexis talks in private with Sam but is interrupted by Robin asking if Patrick will be doing the surgery. Sam tells her it's fine, they're good with Patrick. Alexis starts undressing into a hospital gown. Alexis pulls out the picture of her and her 3 girls. Sam hugs her and heads out the room.
Jax comes to visit Alexis and asks again about Ric and why he's not there by her side? Alexis defends him that he's holding down the fort at work for her. Robin interrupts telling her they require another x-ray before they start.
Sam walks in on Alexis signing papers with her lawyer and Sam tries to get him to leave. But Alexis insists it's important and he's just doing his job. She also has one more thing to say to Sam. She asks Alexis to promise her to never get back together with Jason even if he begs!
