[S1E5] The Last Thing You Want Is To Wind Up Wi...
As they walk through an abandoned Army hospital, Joel stops and tells Ellie the truth about a gunshot wound to the head he mentioned back near Lincoln. Rather than from a fight, it was actually from a suicide attempt, prompted by Sarah's death as he once thought he had nothing left to live for. At the last second, he flinched. Ellie guesses that he is telling her the story to say that time heals all wounds, but Joel knowingly tells her, "It wasn't time that did it." Ellie remarks she is glad he failed to commit suicide. As they continue, he asks her to tell him some more bad puns. Due to the distraction, they fail to notice two guards following them until one throws a flashbang grenade, and Joel is soon knocked out.
