The happy couple ask her to join them but she rushes off to work. She remembers the kid who died on her shift. Maxine shows up and asks her to take some anti-anxiety meds to a patient. Carly runs off with them. She stops herself from taking them and hands them off to a nurse. Back at Java, Adrienne worries to Justin about Carly and wonders why she even got involved with Bo. Justin's sure she'll be fine. They talk about how obnoxiously happy they are and he suggests they elope to Vegas tonight. She gets nervous but agrees. He already booked the tickets.
