The scene opens with Hank over at Emily Peck’s home and she shows his advertisement in a magazine and says that people are not going to like to see their doctor in the magazine. Hank sees that Emily has an ad in the same magazine and she says that she is allowed to have it. Early the next morning, Hank, Divya, Evan and Jill are talking about the article and Evan has a complaint about the fact that it is too early for work. Hank tells the group that the article is only bashing on the clinic because they can’t do anything about it in a court of law. They visit with Jim Harper and he thanks Hank for treating him and pays his not with money, but with a large fish. Jill tells Jim that they are working with a clinic and that they can look at anything. Jim says that his ankle has been hurting him and Hank looks at it. Jim has an ulcer on his foot. Hank wraps it up and says that he needs to have it on for 10 days. As a thank you, Jim gives Hank another fish...

Episode Quotes
Hank: Well look at that. Dr. Emily Peck has a fear of intimacy.
Emily: I'm not afraid of intimacy, I just don't like it.

Evan: My body wasn't designed to function at this ungodly hour, sorry.
Jill: Then why is your body here?
Evan: Because your wonderful clinic has triggered a paradigm shift for HankMed, I'm here to safeguard the paradigm, as it shifts.

Ellen Collins: Evan, it was really nice to meet you, hope we see you again real soon.
Evan: Absolutely, if you're here in the Fall maybe we can go hunting or something.
General William Collins: Really? I wouldn't have pegged you for the type.
Evan: No, I try to kill something every day actually, even if it's just stepping on a bug or something, I just live killing things.

Evan: Divya can I ask you a question really quick? Be completely honest, do these pants make my butt look huge?
Divya: I wouldn't know, as I have never looked at your butt.

Divya: Does it hurt?
Evan: How about I do it to you and then you can tell me, how's that?

Evan: Where the hell have you been? I got shot!
Hank: Ummm. (starts laughing)
Evan: Are you laughing at me?
Hank: No, no no! No I am not.
Divya: No he is not laughing at you, he is laughing with me, at you!
Hank: Totally.

Jill: What's that on the back of your neck?
Hank: What? What?
Jill: Poe?
Divya: What, property of Evan?
Jill: No I think it means someone else.
