Just go.
-You shouldn't go home yet.
-But l feel much better.
Hyponatremia is serious.
You need to stay here and be monitored.

Severe hyponatremia can cause a coma, permanent brain damage, even death.

Ovarian.

Had already spread to the liver and the lungs.
Five-year survival, less than 5 percent.
All the more reason for you to stay.
You can't fight this.
.
.
.
.
.
if you don't take care of yourself.
l don't wanna fight this.
Treatment means surgery, chemo, months in a hospital bed.
l don't want that.
l don't want my kids remembering me.
.
.
.
.
.
as this weak, bald, dying woman.
l can devote my remaining time.
.
.
.
.
.
to some futile fight.
.
.
.
.
.
or to my family.
l'm choosing my family.
What does your husband want? He doesn't know.
Look, after the holidays, l'll tell him.
But right now, l'm going home.

-Why don't you give her a break? -We'll call you if anything changes.
-Sure.
Thanks.
He asked me if l saw the guy's face, and l didn't, so-- lt's okay.
lt's okay.
They're stabilizing her.
We wanna get her to Surgery.
Oh, good.
That's good.
And here are her things.
l told her Santa wouldn't bring her anything unless she wrote it all down.
We're doing everything we can.
Neighborhood's always been dangerous.
When l moved to New York, l asked my mom to come live with us.
.
.
.
.
.
but she wouldn't.
Do you want me to call her? Arrange to have her meet you here? Her diabetes, she can barely walk.
Well, is there someone else? A friend or family? My husband.
He's flying in tonight, but he doesn't know about this.
ls there anything l can get you? l should try Jason again.
Maybe l can catch him on the layover.
Thanks.
This is Dr.
Kovac from the ER looking for a repeat sodium level.
.
.
-.
.
.
on a patient, Tamara Gordon.
-Dr.
Kovac, are you auditioning today? l'm not sure yet.
Hey, schizo.
Mickey Goldstein's labs are back.
What about you, Dr.
Clemente? Are you a singer? Very nice.
Abby's short on baked goods, maybe you can help her out there.
Okay, good news.
All your blood tests came back completely normal.
Yeah, bad news.
l feel like there's a truck parked on my spleen.
You can go home now.
Merry Christmas.
Wait a minute.
What about this terrible cough? Don't worry.
lt's probably just a little virus.
A virus? Well, can a virus cause chest pain? -What chest pain? -A terrible massive pressure right here.
-Oh, the pain.
-Why didn't you tell the other doctor? lt just started a little while ago.
You still stuffing that suit? l went to buy some kente cloth.
.
.
.
.
.
but the salesgirls used it all to wipe themselves.
That's why l kicked your ass.
How did you guys get started in this, anyway? Some employee complained that our company only celebrates Christmas.
So the boss decided to throw a PC holiday party.
.
.
.
.
.
to show how we all get along.
That sounds like a plan.
Santa, how do you handle one of those on your lap? Oh, we break out the big Santa for that one.
-That's enough.
-Maybe l should bring a leg tomorrow.
-lf you don't stop, l'll shove a leg up-- -Eve.
You're a real nutcracker.
You wanna help me jingle my bells? lnstead of pissing all over everyone, piss in that.
l'm in too much pain to walk.
l need a urine sample now.
-Crit's 31 .
-Hold compressions.
-Got a weak pulse.
-That's what l wanna hear.
Let's get a BP.
All right.

-What's the delay? Surgery's here.
-Where's Dubenko? -On vacation.
-l'm Dr.
Albright.
l'm covering for him.
-Bullet in upper quadrant.
Cross-clamp the aorta for traumatic full arrest.
You told us an hour ago you were redlining this patient to the O.
R.
We got a team, scrubbed and waiting.
-She hasn't been stable enough to move.
-We had no pulse.
Be discriminating when you say " redline.
" We hear it, drop everything, and run to the O.
R.
-You don't redline a pulseless patient.
-lmportant thing is she has a pulse now.
-So let's go.
-She's bradying down.
And we just lost that pulse.
Resume compressions.
You have a real three-ring circus in here.
Dr.
Albright, l don't think we've met.
l'm Dr.
Weaver, chief of staff.
Oh, Dr.
Weaver.
l'm the surgical chief resident.
Just got back from a VA rotation.
Good for you.
Epinephrine, 0.
2.
-Type-specific blood is up.
Hang a unit.
-Call us when you know what's going on.
-l know what's going on.
-We can't hold the O.
R.
for a dead kid.
-She's not dead.
Uh-huh.
-What the hell? -She's a bitch, but she's right.
Let's get the mom in here.
All right.
l'm going with an atrial line.
Fourteen-gauge and four more units.
-Hey.
-Merry Christmas, doctors.
-Merry Christmas.
-You letting them go home? -You saw her sodium level.
-She needs to be home.
She could develop central pontine myelinolysis.
-She could start seizing again.
-We'll recheck her level in the morning.
She promised to come back after her kids opened their presents.
You're not gonna believe this.
Joe just called.
He wants to spend Christmas at his mother's.
-That could be fun.
-Without me.
Well, maybe it's a family tradition.
-You can spend New Year's together.
-l guess.
lsn't this cute? Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Roy Orbison, together at last.
What did you just say? My bad.
Roy Orbison wasn't blind, he just wore the glasses.
You sit down.
l'm not gonna tell you again.
-You're ruining our performance.
-No, you guys sound great.
Keep going.
And don't yell at me again, or you won't see any gifts under the tree.
Oops! My bad.
You won't see them anyway.
Ho, ho, ho, you piece of crap.
Resume compressions.
Another atropine and stand by with epi.
She's had eight rounds of meds, Pratt.
Bring her mom in.
Five more minutes.
Cardiac line might help us catch up with her blood loss.
l'm getting her now.
No, l'll go get her.
-Mrs.
Hopkins.
-ls she okay? l'll let you guys talk.
Would you like to come in and see your daughter? Are you finished? -How is she doing? -Danielle's condition is very serious.
But you're helping her.
l can see that.
We've given her fluids.
We've given her medicines.
We've even opened up her chest, but her heart's just not beating on its own.
What are you saying? -Nadine, please-- -No.
Just go back in there and help her.
lt'd be good for her to have you there.
Just hearing your voice.
Okay? Sats are not coming up.
-lt's getting harder to bag her.
-Up the rate.
Watch her pressures.
lt's okay.
You can get close.
Hey, sweetie.
You have been so strong today.
ls she responding to the calcium? We've given her medications to try to restart her heart.
.
.
.
.
.
but nothing's working.
She's lost too much blood.
They've been working real hard to keep you here.
Remember how l told you God does things for a reason? Well, maybe he just wants you with him real bad right now.
l want you to know.
.
.
.
l want you to know that it's okay to let go.
You see, God doesn't want you to be in any pain, and neither does Mommy.
Daddy and l, we love you so much.
We will always love you.
So don't be afraid.
Don't be afraid.
lt's all right.
-Rate's coming up.
-She's got a pulse.
Epi infusion, 0.
1 cc per kilo.
-What's happening? -Her heart's beating.
Package her up.
Let's go.
-l want her fired.
Things got a little out of hand.
-She poured pee on me.
-At least it was your pee.
You think that's funny? These guys saw it.
Saw it? We can still smell it.
What did you have for lunch? Asparagus fries? We didn't see it, Santa.
No, but you heard it.
Yeah.
And it sounded good, you fat bastard.
Dr.
Clemente.
-Yeah, what's up? Nice going, Santa.
That nurse boss you got there threw urine on me.
l want her fired.
-Eve did what? -Yeah.
These guys were out of control.
Eve told them to be quiet, but they wouldn't listen.
So she pours pee on me? -l want her fired.
-Oh, crap.
Hey, you listening to me? Dr.
Clemente? -Your East Coast squeeze is here.
-Just tell her l'm with a patient.
She's kind of a looker.
.
.
-.
.
.
in an interstate off-ramp kind of way.
-Please, Frank.
Please, please.
Hey, l need some help with this.
Where are you going? Take it to Kovac.
He's the boss, right? l talked to the cops.
The store owner lD'd the kids.
He's seen them around before.
They're gonna pick them up.
You're supposed to be holding a room open for my GSW.
Tell her this kid can't wait.
Yeah, l don't care.
The kid can't wait.
Her chest is open.
She's got a pulse.
Two minutes and that's it.
O.
R.
's full.
They'll take her soon.
Now.
They'll take my child now.
Move her to another hospital.
-She's not stable enough.
-Call Shriners, Children's.
lf they don't call back within 2 minutes, l'll take her up myself.
l promise, okay? MORRlS: What did--? How did it go? -Remember Debbie Allen from Fame? -Yeah.
Well, Haleh makes her look like Mother Teresa.
Next! -You punched a patient.
-He's lucky l didn't have a gun.
-You can get suspended.
He's a moron.
He's a moron who wants to call his lawyer.
Good, l'll punch him too.
Now, keep the splint dry.
Watch for any pain, numbness, discoloration.
Remember, just because Santa's reindeer can fly.
.
.
-.
.
.
doesn't mean you can, okay? -Eve.
l'm busy.
Walk with me.
-Eve, hold on.
-What? You need to go over there and apologize.
You want me to say sorry to some jerk who was teasing blind kids? l want you to apologize so we can salvage this situation.
-And if l don't? -You can lose your job.
You may have gotten a gold star and become chief of the department.
.
.
.
.
.
but l hate to break it to you.
Only the nursing supervisor can fire me.
Okay, well, you got no signs of ischemia, or LVH or arrhythmias.
So, what have l got? You've got absolutely nothing wrong with you.
-What about the headache? -What headache? -The terrible pounding between my eyes.
-Pounding? -Yeah.
lt keeps me awake all night.
-Mm-hm.
-And it's worse during the day.
-Right.
-l'm starting to smell something.
-Yeah, l smell something.
-Yeah, me too.
-What is that? -Bull crap, maybe? -Oh, jeez.
First you say it's your stomach, then your heart, then your head.
Look, l just can't go home.
Well, you got no choice, okay? l need these beds for really sick patients.
Look, l need this bed.
Yeah, well, you've wasted enough tax dollars.
Just go home to your wife.
Just go.
My wife died about four years ago.
So you're tired of spending Christmas alone.
.
.
.
.
.
watching Miracle on 34th Street by yourself? Yeah, especially in living color.
-Right.
-How long you gonna keep me waiting? l got a patient here, okay, Jodie? Please, do you mind? Yeah.
You're signing him out.
No, l'm not signing him out.
He's really sick.
He's got Ohniatis Muchgotow.
He got it in Brazil.
-Right, Mickey? -Yeah, right, Brazil.
l never heard of that.
Because you're an lCU nurse, that's why.
And this is a toxicology problem.
ln fact, he needs to be admitted and watched tonight.
.
.
.
.
.
and especially tomorrow.
Haleh.
Haleh, please.
-Yeah.
l've called you 20 times.
-Right.
And l haven't answered you back for a reason.
-What's up? -That's why l'm here.
-Because l wanted to see you in person.
-Breathe normally.
Okay, go back.
Go back to Jersey.
Go back to your husband.
Just leave me alone.
My husband is not gonna find me, so just relax.
Your husband's a cop, okay? Don't tell me to relax.
Dr.
Clemente, do you need me? Haleh, yes, l do.
Mr.
Goldstein needs to be signed in and needs to be observed for.
.
.
.
-Systemic Ponderosa.
-Systemic Ponderosa.
-What? -What? You heard me.
Just write it down.
l'll explain it to you later.
Jodie, please.
Come on.
Hurry up.
Have you witnessed violent behavior before? l never said she was violent.
Angry? She's very good at her job.
-Today was just a hard day.
-Ms.
Taggart-- Look, l don't feel comfortable evaluating her.
She's my boss.
That's part of management, Sam.
That's what everyone tells me, but l don't understand.
.
.
.
.
.
why you can't just bring her in here instead of talking behind her back.
l will talk to her, but we believe in 360 evaluation here.
.
.
.
.
.
from supervisors, peers and subordinates.
So l expect you to be honest with me.
After she punched Santa and poured the urine on him, what did she do? She went to lunch.
Okay.
Thank you for your time, Ms.
Taggart.
So, what happens now? Well, this is grounds for immediate termination.
Oh, come on.
You can't fire Eve on Christmas Eve.
Look, it was good between us, okay? Actually, okay, it was great.
But that was for a while.
God, you look good.
You're married, which is something you deliberately omitted when we first met.
-You knew.
-No, l didn't know.
Okay, at first, at first-- Okay, but you know what? lt doesn't matter now, because l can't stop thinking about you.
Jodie.
Jodie.
Jodie, stop it, stop it.
l want you to hop on the first plane and get the hell out of here.
Before your husband puts a bullet in my ass.
Just tell me the truth.
-Don't you miss it? -Nope, not at all.
You never think about it? You never think about us? No, l don't think about us.
See, l think that whenever l called, you wanted me to call.
-That's such bull.
-l think.
.
.
.
.
.
that whenever you heard my voice, you sprung to attention.
Oh, come on.
Don't be ridiculous.
And you went into a room and you saluted your little soldier.
-Big soldier.
-l know.
But, see, l'm here now, baby.
-Systolic's up to 83.
-The art line's a little hinky.
lf the waveform looks blunted, try repositioning.
ALBRlGHT: This is probably a waste of time.
But it's good for Residents and students to get a look at young organs.
This is a child.
Keep that in mind.
l'll see you.
They're taking her up to Surgery.
Anesthesia will have some more questions for you.
Danielle's a fighter.
They're gonna take good care of her.
-Nice work.
-Thanks.
-Hey.
-Hey.
ls she gonna make it? Not sure yet.
Did they find those shooters? Still looking.
l'll come back later.
l need to go out for a while.
Where are you going? Come see.
When they find these jerks.
.
.
.
.
.
the cops should make them come here, make them see what they've done.
-What's all this? -lt's a vigil for Danielle.
-But she's not dead.
-They're praying to keep her that way.
-Really? -Really.
Not bad, Olivia.
Not bad, baby.
Pratt.
Our little girl bradied down in the elevator, lost her pulse.
-Brought her back to Trauma 1 .
-Tell them to keep praying.
Hey.
l just can't believe it.
On Christmas.
Yeah, l know.
l'm so sorry.
l just tried so hard, you know.
Now it's all nothing.
You're gonna be fine.
Don't talk like that.
You know how hard it is out there.
Yeah, but you're experienced.
Hospitals are always looking for good nurse managers.
What? What are you talking about? What are you talking about? My boyfriend just dumped me.
Oh.
Wait a minute.
What did you--? Am l getting fired? l didn't say that.
Answer me.
Am l getting fired? l gotta get back to work, okay? What? Ugh.
Of course.
What did l expect? Come on.
l'm setting up a new life here.
l want as little drama as possible.
You can understand that, can't you? JODlE: Bobby hit me.
-What? -Broke a rib.
l'm sorry, l didn't know, but you didn't say anything.
Look, why didn't you go to the police? He is the police.
All they would have done is come over, give Bobby a high five.
.
.
.
.
.
and then had a beer with him.
l left him.
Vic, l'm not going back.
Now, l'm at the Marriott.
lf you wanna call me, do.
And if you don't, then you can have a nice holiday.
-At least she's saving on long distance.
Come on, Frank.
-Was that Jodie? -How do you know her name? She calls Frank about eight times a day and l talk to her about three.
-That's great.
-Must have been.
-Your fly is down.
-Hey, Abby.
There's a snowplow accident coming in.
l'm making Croatian bread and a turkey.
What are you cooking? Cooking? Do you have amnesia from the last time we dated? l thought that little girl was gonna die hours ago.
l guess she's not ready to go yet.
-ls that them? -We got confessions.
Thanks for bringing them.
-Hey, what are we doing here? -Taking us to the morgue or something? Somewhere even better.
This way.
What happened? -She was fine until we tried to move her.
Holding compressions.
She's down on the right.
Tension pneumo.
Chest tube tray and 1 4 French for Dr.
Pratt.
-l got the heart.
-What's happening? Her lung collapsed.
We're inserting a tube to reinflate it.
-Nadine? -They found them? They're outside.
ls it okay if we bring them in? l don't wanna be in here for that.
l need to see my daughter.
Go through there and wait in the hall.
l'll come and get you in a minute.
-Hey, nice shot, guys.
-We didn't shoot no girl.
You didn't mean to.
Your bullet went through that guy and landed here.
-No, dog.
-Yeah, dog, right into her belly.
Ripped through her liver, her intestines and her spleen too.
Took out countless veins and arteries, caused her abdomen to fill up with blood.
-We had to crack her chest open.
-Yo, get us out of here.
No, no, stay.
Admire your work.
You know, your one shot.
.
.
.
.
.
is probably gonna kill this little girl.
And if she lives, well, think about it.
What if this was your sister lying here? Have to have her intestines removed and crap into a bag for the rest of her life? -Answer me.
-Come on, man.
While you're in jail, l want you to remember what you did to this little girl.
And for what? A dime bag? Because somebody looked at you wrong? Let's get them out of here.
Her name's Danielle Hopkins.
She's 6 years old.
Hey.
You got me fired? l have nothing to do with you.
Check with the nursing supervisor.
She said l had to clear out within two hours.
You know it's Christmas? You'll be missed.
-Bite me.
-Don't make me call security.
No, it's fine, l'm leaving on my own.
But l tried to do something good here.
l tried to elevate this stupid ER.
lnstead of getting praise, l get fired on Christmas Eve? -Screw yourselves.
You all suck.
-Come on, calm down.
Oh, you, behind my back, trying to get my job.
Merry Christmas, Judas.
They've controlled the bleeding.
Vitals are good.
Looks like she's gonna pull through this.
NADlNE: Always wanted a girl.
Thought it would be easier, safer.
Those guys are gonna pay for what they did.
l don't want them to pay.
l want them to stop.
We turn our backs on these kids, we don't educate them.
.
.
.
.
.
and then we wonder why this happens.
People have choices.
Some people don't know they do.
-ls it over? -Not bad for your first shift.
-You cleared the board and an employee.
-l had no choice.
Yep.
l gotta go get Henry.
l'll see you at lke's.
Hey, what's up? Nothing.
l'm gonna go play my game.
Thank you so much for having a play date on Christmas Eve.
l can take them on New Year's if you want.
You know, Sam, l don't think so.
Why, what's wrong? ls there a problem? Alex keeps telling Willie his father's dead.
-That's not true.
-And now he's telling Willie.
.
.
.
.
.
his dad's gonna die too.
l'm sure he's just joking around.
Sam, Alex needs help.
Until you get that for him, l'd prefer he not hang out with Willie.
-Heather-- -l'm sorry.
Anything l can do? Thanks, l got it.
Alex? What's up? Why did you tell Willie that your father is dead? Hey.
Answer me.
l don't need him, so that's like being dead.
Come on.
Your dad has problems, but he loves you, you know that.
-l know you love him.
-lf he loved me, he'd call.
He can't call you, Alex.
-But he misses you.
-No, he doesn't.
You're just lying for him.
Hey.
-Hi.
-What's this? -Part of your present.
Open it.
Wow.
-Thank you.
-You're welcome.
This-- This beats what l got you.
Open yours.
-A compass? -l know it's corny, but.
.
.
.
.
.
it seems we always find each other.
lt's beautiful.
Can we talk? Yeah, sure.
-You okay? -Yeah.
Maybe go outside for a minute? Okay.
-l don't know how to say this.
-What? Well, lt's just that these past three weeks have been really-- You know, l couldn't have imagined it better.
-For me too.
-Yeah.
And l haven't laughed so much.
.
.
.
.
.
or felt so good in a really long time.
l don't wanna do anything to ruin that.
-Hey, you won't, l promise.
-Look, Luka.
Yeah? Oh, man.
-What? -l'm pregnant.
