-Let's try to stay civil.
Are you sure you gave her your full attention? That's not the problem here.
But you did sign the chart.

Aren't you supposed to obtain it? We know what this is about.
We all depend on the residents to do their job.
Attendings are here to help residents do their job.
Dr.

How would you assess that information now? l think l'd consider it more carefully.
A possible sign of unstable angina.
We all make those judgments.

Wasn't so bad, was it? Never got shot before.
You're gonna do okay.
-This woman does this for a living.
-l've been looking at nursing homes.
She's my mother too.
Don't make these decisions without me.
Why do you keep fighting this? -lt's the solution we're looking for.
-You're looking for.
l know the solution.
She goes to a nursing home and you get our house, right? Don't give me that sentimental crap.
You wouldn't care if it burned.
Don't answer that.
l came all the way across town to see you.
Jackie l don't want to see Ma in some warehouse for old folks.
Look, Jackie, this woman will come three times a week.

-That's perfect.
You get the house, you get to spend every penny she ever saved.
Except what she gave you for med school.

Look, Jackie, we can-- l couldn't move the meeting.
You're kidding.
But it'll be short.

lf you're not here, l'll come up to that meeting stark naked and drag you out.
l'll see you at 8, okay? How was the review? Fine, thank you.
l see you two are still having a love-fest.

Okay, ET tube 7.

Full respiratory down.
Open up the lV.
Bolus one milligram atropine lV.
lt's falling, 60 over 35.
Start a dopamine drip.
Tube's in.
Bag him.
All right, he may need a pacemaker.
-Carotid's okay.
-Let's get him upstairs.
Now! Haleh, call Cardiology.
Tell them he's stable, he needs angioplasty.
See if anyone's gotten ahold of his wife.
Coming through! What is this, a convention? -ls that a joke? -No.
-Hey, Terry, how you feeling? -Better.
l want to talk to you about your condition.
You heard of PCP, pneumocystis pneumonia? AlDS, huh? We need to confirm the diagnosis, but if it's PCP, then yes, you may have AlDS.
Angie, don't cry, don't cry, please.
Come on.
Would you get my coat and stuff, please? Go on, get my coat.
You still working the street, Terry? You playing safe? They don't want you using rubbers.
lt's not what they pay for.
We'll check you in, do an HlV test and treat your pneumonia.
Thanks anyway, but no thanks.
l just want to get out of here.
lf you have sex with people you'll infect them.
l gotta feed myself, right? And some of my friends too.
You're sick and you'll get sicker.
We can stop the pneumonia and put you on a program for AZT.
Hey, man, l'm okay.
Listen to me.
You are not gonna get healthier on the street.
Can you go home? ls there anyone to take you in? They threw me out.
They won't be taking me back now.
Use these condoms.
l'll get you a medicine called Bactrim.
Take it every day.
The only time l took medicine every day was in jail.
Please try.
And use the condoms, Terry.
Use the condoms.
Here's some numbers for a shelter and an AlDS treatment center.
Keep this.
You'll need it, okay? All right.
Thanks.
Your wife's on the way.
Steinman will take you to the cath lab.
Nod if that's what you want.
Do you want TPA? Jack, you look great.
We'll blow your arteries out.
Dr.
Steinman, he wants TPA.
l looked at your echo.
You need angioplasty.
You're scared.
We did hundreds of these last year.
When this is over, stop smoking and start jogging.
-Let's move him.
-You can't do that.
He's my patient.
He doesn't want angioplasty, he wants TPA.
Dr.
Lewis? This man's under sedation, he's in no condition to make a decision.
Stop this adolescent behavior and get out of my way.
lf you take him l'll see you at a review committee.
They will fry your ass so fast you'll be lucky to keep your license.
Please order the TPA.
Get it in here right now.
That was really dull.
l guess l'll have to try it again.
Maybe we should use that stuff you got in New Orleans last year.
Really? You still have some of that edible massage oil? lt gave you a rash.
We could try a different flavor.
Where's my bag? You know, that little Gladstone bag? What? You had it.
You're joking.
No, l'm not.
Where is it? l brought the bags downstairs, l stopped to get you.
l'll never be able to go to work again.
Where did you leave it? Admissions.
Under the desk.
Doug, you sleeping? l wish.
How many kids am l gonna see this year? Based on last year 3000, give or take.
l feel like l saw them all today.
Baby with croup.
God love the croup.
At least it's something l can fix.
You okay? Yeah.
l'm coming.
