    Back in the ER, Mayor Floyd, Dr. Russell and Edward quarrel about how to handle the situation while Joe sits with Sam and explains how things got so bad for him. Jason takes it all in as Joe and Sam reminisce about an antique car that used to sit on his lot.

    Dr. Ford immediately orders Angela to be taken to County General, but Cassius speaks up and asks why it always has to be about money to him. Jason rushes to Liz's curtain area and finds Lucky, Jake and Liz holding Jake and marveling over how much better he is doing. Epiphany tries to get back to work but breaks down in tears. "Oh it hurts!" she sobs as Cassius sits next to her. Down the hall, Sam finds Lucky and says that she'd like to go home, but Lucky says that he wants to make sure things are okay with Liz and Jake for a while.

    Patrick tells Nikolas about the blood tests that they ran on him (after they provoked a rage), and Nikolas doesn't appreciate being a test animal. Angry, he walks over to Dr. Ford and says that if he sends Angela to County he'll withdraw every dime he's ever donated to the hospital. Dr. Ford quickly signs her papers to let her stay. Nadine tells Nik that Emily would be pleased, but she would also want him to take care of himself. Nikolas turns to Patrick and says that he'll admit himself and wait for those blood results.
