Patrick will need to administer it and that she’s determined to figure out which one will work. 

Carly shows up at Jason’s door, as he’s trying to leave.  She’s upset that she wasn’t told he was sick. She wonders why Sam isn’t with him.  Jason doubles over in pain, but claims he’s okay.  Carly refuses to let him leave and tells him to get back into bed.  Carly asks again about Sam. Jason tells her to back off, Sam is pregnant.   

Carly’s thrilled about the news and congratulates Jason, saying he’ll make a great dad.  Jason says neither of them can handle stress and for Carly not to start a fight.  Sam shows up and ask who Carly would be fighting with.  Carly congratulates Sam and says she stopped Jason from going after her.  Sam says their job now is to make sure Jason gets well.  Robin arrives, annoyed that Jason isn’t in bed.
