He tells Adam that he never listens to his own doctors, or his family. Angie begins to ask the family about Adam's routines and habits. Adam argues with all of their answers. He says he has a virus, and if there's any justice in this world, he just infected all of them. Angie says she doubts that it's a virus. If it is confirmed to be what she think it is, he better stop being so flip about things, and start taking his health a little more seriously."

Adam says, "I'm Adam Chandler; have we met? I don't have panic attacks I give other people panic attacks, and right now I'm having a ticked-off-at-the-moment attack, because I've been here all afternoon in this damned hospital, and poked and prodded, and had people telling me that I'm behaving like a WOMAN with the VAPORS!"
