- What about the ones who don't? - You're nicer than I am.
- That's not much solace.
Sorry.
Oh, my God.

All right, let's slide him out.
Here it comes.

I think it's a whole different kind of crazy, ma'am.
- There you are.
I was looking for you- - No, listen, I need to see you.
I'm gonna pick up my son and drive to your office.
Well, if you're not there, I'll get another attorney.
You're damn right I'm upset.
You told me not to- You told me not to fight this thing.
Now Roger's gonna try to hang me with it.
- Fine.
I'll see you in a half an hour.
- What happened? The DNA analysis shows that I'm not Reece's biological father.
Oh, God, Peter.
I'm so sorry.
I told myself a long time ago it wouldn't matter, that I'm his father.
- I won't let that son of a bitch change it.
- I'm going with you.
No.
They're getting ready to throw a party for you.
I don't give a damn about a party.
Let's go.
- Frank, where the hell is this thing? - What thing? - Cleo, are you done? - I'll call to say goodbye.
- Where's the stab wound? - I don't know.
I was sloshing around downstairs.
I'm billing you for these shoes.

We need to plug it up, all right? BP's 110/70.
Still no sats.
- Ready? - Yep.
- That should be better.
- They find Joey? I don't know.
We're gonna ask the firemen.

- Coming.
- Come on, breathe! That was stupid.
That was really stupid.
You could have both been electrocuted.
- Stop.
- Sorry.
It was instinct.
I told you not to touch him.
You're okay if your feet don't touch the ground.
Guess what? It's raining.

Weaver again.
Did you feel a shock? - No, I don't think so.
- Is he breathing? We got him back for now.
Vicki, tell me if you're bleeding from your vagina.
The baby's not moving.
I need you to feel down there and tell me if you're bleeding.
Hold on! I'm coming in.
- No, no.
I can't let you do that.
- Her baby's probably in distress.
First rule of an accident site, don't create more casualties.
Casualties? We need an engineer out here.
They're not showing fault in the power grid.
- It looks like a fault to me.
- That's what they're telling me.
- Hey, I told you not to do that! - Just turn the damn power off! Did you hit your head, lose consciousness? I don't know.
I remember walking in the street, seeing Gordon lying in the rain.
- Gordon? - Her dog.
BP's 100/40.
He kept scratching at the door.
I had to take him for a walk.
- Breath sounds equal.
- No hemotympanum.
- But I wanna get a head CT.
- Is this the hit-and-run? He didn't stop? - Pulse ox is 94 on 4 liters.

Daniel, you're doing much better.
We need to keep an eye on you for the next couple hours just in case you need any surgery.
- He's dead, isn't he? - What? Joey.
He drowned.
- I don't know.
They're looking for him.
- He didn't want to go.
- Where? - To the river.
He was scared, but I called him a baby.
- You didn't know this would happen.
- He's only 6.
- Parents are on their way.
- They're gonna hate me now.
- They're gonna be happy you're safe.
- It should have been me.
- Watch the monitor.
His heart's irritable.
- Looks like regular sinus rhythm.
- Okay, let's go! Shut the door.
- Okay.
Hey, stay clear of that rig! - Hey, hold on.
- It's okay.
- Is she okay? - Hypertonic contractions.
BP's dropping, 68/40.
That's way too low, right? - What?! - Nothing, Vicki.
I need you to be quiet.
I just need to listen.
- What was that? - It's the power line! - Fetal heart tones are 70.
- Is that bad? Maybe the transformer will blow out and kill the line! Dr.
Weaver! I need your help.
Can you get in here safely? - Yeah, I'd have to jump.
- Okay, then jump.
Got it.
Search through the cabinets.
Find me an amp of cardiac lidocaine.
- Lidocaine? - Just do it.
Vicki, your placenta is detaching.
It's bleeding into your uterus.
Oh, God! Hey! I told you to stay away from the damn vehicle! She's bleeding out! Why is the power still on? There's a crew on the way! The only way to stop the bleeding is to deliver your baby surgically.
- It's too early.
- it's not.
Thirty-six weeks is full-term.
Take me to the hospital! Honey, I want to.
I want to, but I can't right now, all right? Shut it off from the plant! It's supposed to burn through on its own.
They need to authorize the shutdown.
Vicki.
Vicki, I need you to listen to me.
I'm an emergency physician.
I'm trained to perform a C-section only after the mother has died.
And in about 15 minutes, that's what's gonna happen.
Meanwhile, your baby is in danger.
But I might be able to save you both if we take the baby now and stop your internal bleeding.
Are you willing to take that risk with me? - I think so.
- You sure? - You've observed a C-section? - I haven't done OB before.
- Well, you'll be ahead of the curve.
- Lidocaine.
- Know how to take a blood pressure? - Yeah.
Okay, take one.
I need it every couple of minutes.
Squeeze that saline bag and find me every 4-by-4 and bandage we have.
Okay, Vicki.
Vicki, hang in there.
I'm gonna give you a shot in your spine that will numb your belly and legs.
All right, find me a 10 blade.
That's a scalpel.
When's the last time you've done this? - Peter, the DNA test was inevitable.
- There has to be a precedent.
Not in a custody battle between two men without genetic ties to a child they raised.
It's stepfather versus stepfather.
- I'm not his stepfather.
I'm his father.
- Sorry.
Father.
Until Carla died, Roger never questioned that Peter was Reece's dad.
- Irrelevant.
- She put my name on the birth certificate.
If she were alive, Carla couldn't contest the paternity.
- But Roger can? - Ironically, yes.
Peter, you are going to have to allow Roger to resume partial visitation.
- No.
No way.
- As we speak Roger's attorney is drafting a pre-trial motion for visitation until this is resolved.
You don't stipulate now, you'll lose that hearing and be painted as the heavy.
I'm the heavy? He's trying to take my son from me and I'm the heavy? You need to be seen by the judge as someone who's interested - in Reece's well-being.
- I am.
Good.
Then you need to listen to me.
You have to stay focused on the endgame.
And not let anger or fear impede that goal.
Vicki, stay awake.
I need you to stay awake.
- BP's dropping.
50.
- Spike another liter.
- "Spike"? - Take the pointy end of the bag and hang it up.
Hey, you! Firefighter! - Lopez! - Lopez, I need more light! Scotty! Scotty, turn up the brights! I need you over here.
Get out.
- You're doing a vertical incision? - Yeah.
Be ready with that hemostat.
We're gonna clamp the big bleeders and pack up everything else with gauze.
All right, here we go.
I need you to put your hands there and pull back.
- Where? - Just do what I do from the other side.
Vicki, you feel that? - Just some pulling.
- Okay.
Okay, fascia's exposed.
Okay, separate the rectus, down to the fascia.
All right, more retraction.
- Okay.
- Pull back.
- My baby.
- Hang on.
Hang on, Vicki.
Okay.
I'm into the peritoneal cavity.
Here's the uterus.
Give me the scalpel.
You want me to let go? - Scanner 1 will be ready in 10.
- Do a sound on the chest.
They're gonna take you upstairs and scan your whole body for other injuries.
I want you to tell the nurse if you need any more pain medication, okay? I'm sorry about your dog.
What? - "He probably went really fast.
" - She was upset.
She could have solid-organ rupture.
The dog's the least of her concerns.
It can be traumatic to lose a pet, especially if you saw it happen.
- What was his name? - Who? Your dog.
Happy.
He was a Lhasa apso, and he got run over by a car when I was 11.
Oh, did he go really fast? No.
Crushed his pelvis.
- In the river earlier today - Someone drowned? - Brother of the boy in Trauma 2.
- Oh, I'm sorry.
Did they find him? - Not yet.
- You can't leave anything around here.
- What? - Some derelict stole my PalmPilot.
- Maybe you misplaced it.
- I had it two minutes ago.
- Dr.
Carter.
- Alger.
Alger, what are you-? It's your grandmother.
I found her in the driveway.
I think she broke her hip.
Get a gurney! There's a cut on her head.
- She was driving? - She went during the break in the storm.
- Gamma? - Oh, John, it's terrible.
It hurts.
Okay, I know it does.
Just lay still.
- Did she fall down? - I don't know.
But the right leg is shortened and externally rotated.
- I think I broke my hip.
- I think you did too.
- What happened to your head? - I thought it was best if I drove home.
I didn't realize how much I was bleeding, so I slipped.
- You were in an accident? - Well, I don't- It was raining.
I couldn't see.
I think I hit a dog.
- Where were you driving? - It was supposed to be clear and sunny.
- Retract the bladder anteriorly.
- Like that? More.
Watch your fingers.
- I'm opening the lower uterine section.
- Is that the amniotic fluid? Yeah.
I'm in.
It looks like a lot of blood.
Auto recloser is stuck open or something.
He's trying to bypass it.
- I don't care.
Just shut it down! - It ain't that simple, lady! - Damn it! - What? I cut a uterine vein.
Another clamp now! - BP's dropping.
60 systolic.
- Keep squeezing in that saline.
- Doesn't she need blood? - I don't have any blood! - Fundal pressure.
- What? Push the baby down towards me from the top of the uterus.
- Okay.
Right here? - Yes.
Yes.
Now.
- Is the other ambulance here? - It's pulling up.

I need the room.
Post-arrest electrocution.
- What's open with a monitor? - He's a fireman.
Daniel, we're gonna shuffle you to another room.
CK is normal.
Tox screen tested positive for marijuana.
- Marijuana? Were you smoking dope? - C-spine, chest, pelvis.
- I'm sorry.
- You're sorry.
For getting high and taking Joey out to the river? - I didn't smoke today.
- I knew it.
I knew it.
We saw the river on the news.
We wanted to see it.
- "We"? Joey's 6 years old.
- He said he wanted to see it.
- You're gonna blame it on him now? - No, it's my fault.
- You're damn right it's your fault! - Hold on.
I'm Dr.
Greene.
We need to get Daniel into a room.
Then I'll come out and brief you on your son's condition.
- I'm sorry, Mom.
- You heard from the fire department - about Joey? - Not yet.
They're still searching.
- Between these clamps, right? - Yes.
- Vicki! Vicki, are you still with me? - Is that my baby? Yes, honey.
You have a boy.
He's crying.
Do you hear that? He's crying.
Could be stronger.
We need to get a heart rate.
Okay, 10 minutes! They're gonna shut the entire grid off! Why can't they do it right now? They have to warn emergency facilities they're going off-line.
- Okay.
It's 88, I think.
- You think or you know? It's 88.
- One-minute Apgar is seven out of 10.
- It'll get better, right? We need to wrap him up.
He needs fluids, oxygen, maybe blood.
You said we didn't have any blood.
You need to get him to the hospital.
Nine minutes! Vicki? Vicki, wake up! Damn it! She's exsanguinating! I have to clamp off the uterine artery.
Okay, I'm going! Get out of the way! - No! - It's this or I throw him to you! - No! No! Tell him to stop! - Go.
- Is he okay? - I got him.
- Okay, get him out of here.
Go! - Let's go.
Let's go.
Transformer just blew.
Does that mean the circuit's dead? I'm gonna sew this up.
You won't feel anything.
You okay? I see a lot of fathers who come in here and they're upset when their kids are hurt or missing.
Sometimes they say things they don't mean.
He's not my father.
He's my stepfather.
Joey's the real kid.
- And that makes you? - A pain in the ass.
Did it come back? - What? - You were waiting for a chest x-ray.
Right.
Lungs re-expanded.
Tube's in a good position.
I'm repairing the chest laceration now.
- Mom? - So he's fine? For now.
He'll need to be monitored in the PICU.
- Mom, I'm sorry.
- You shouldn't have been out there.
- Yeah, I know.
- Mrs.
Pendry- Why did you take him there? You didn't think.
You never think.
I know.
It should have been me that drowned.
- Yes.
But it wasn't, was it? - Mrs.
Pendry- - It was Joey.
- Mrs.
Pendry I need to talk to you outside.
In here.
What are you doing? My son is missing.
No one can find him.
Right.
And your other son is in there who needs your comfort and love.
This is none of your business.
You want him to feel responsible? Guess what? He already does.
You want him to hurt? He already hurts.
You want him to hate himself, keep it up.
- They found him.
- What? - He's stuck down river.
- Is he all right? I don't know.
They're trying to get to him.
It'll be okay, Peter.
We don't know that.
I see you two together.
I know.
What did you do that for? You wanted to? Are you expecting someone? - Yeah? - Peter.
No, Peter! This doesn't have to go any further, man! Look, please.
Just hear me out, okay? Come on.
Look, Reece lived under my care and my roof for most of his life.
All I'm asking for is some kind of arrangement that recognizes that.
- It's too late for that.
- Look, come on, brother.
- You want to put him through a trial? - I'm keeping my son.
- I guess I'll see you there.
- Yeah, you will.
There's been a search going on ever since the boy's brother was pulled out earlier this evening.
Swift Water 43.
County General waiting.

She's had to learn to live on her own.
Her father? She panicked, I guess.
I don't know.
I was just trying to help her.

It just happened.
You sure it's yours? - And that she's really pregnant? - She's not like that.

They're gonna move him upstairs and you're gonna be up in the same room soon.
I'm gonna tell you something, but you can't tell any other kids, okay? Okay.
Parents don't always know what they're doing.
Just because they're adults doesn't mean they know what's right.
In fact some adults are wrong most of the time.
- I know that.
- Good.
And I want you to promise me something.
What? Don't listen to them.
Don't believe that you're not just as good as your brother.
Just as smart.
Just as special.
One day they may realize that but you can tell them it doesn't matter because you already knew.
You knew before they did.
Dr.
Weaver, Dr.
Romano is looking for you.
The mother came out of surgery.
They had to perform a hysterectomy, but she's doing all right.
Yeah, I know.
Thanks.
He also told me that I should try to stay away from you if I'm gonna survive med school.
Well, nobody actually listens to Dr.
Romano down here.
Yeah, I figured that.
It was pretty amazing what you did out there.
I was a little out of my element.
Well, you wouldn't know it.
Thank you.
Why don't you go up and take her baby to her? - They'd let me? - It's one of the perks.
- She's gonna think you're an angel.
- Yeah, well - she did almost see me glowing.
- You did great.
I mean, you took a risk, stayed focused, listened.
You did what was necessary.
That's an ER doc.
I was scared out there for a while.
- Gallant, I was scared the whole time.
- Right.
The fireman is sitting well in ICU.
He's gonna keep his hands.
