James wakes up in a chair in front of a TV. It's late.
The nurse gives him the remote, and he stares at the TV without registering what's on. Must be a Law & Order marathon on TNT.
A man shows up and yells at James: "HEY, ASSHOLE. THAT'S MY FUCKING CHAIR" (3.43). This must be where Dan Hedaya ended up after Clueless.
The nurse comes in and tells the shouter to sit somewhere else.
James later falls asleep and slides off the chair onto the floor.
The shouty fellow wakes James up, and he's still yelling about that stupid chair.
Mr. Big Mouth drags James across the floor and leaves him lying facedown in the corner.
The next morning, James wakes up, goes to his room, eats breakfast, then pukes up breakfast.
A man named Doctor Baker comes into his room and plies him with detox drugs. "Without them [he] could suffer a stroke or a heart attack or both" (1.3.117). "Stroke Attack" is totally going to be the name of our hair metal band.
So... Doctor Baker then stitches the hole in James's cheek and breaks and sets his nose. Ouch. The less we write about that, the better.
James gets no painkillers, because painkillers are narcotics.
The doctor sends James to the dispensary for some penicillin to stave off infection.
In the med line, James meets a girl named Lilly. Could it be a dose of love?
