ER Episode Scripts

s13e09

Previously on ER: Glass of wine and a hot bath at the end of the day helps.
Hmm, it sounds good to me.
our water bill 'cause I need to - Do you live with someone? - We love you.
- I can't do this anymore.
- There's a little girl.
Curtis Ames.
He was a patient of mine.
He followed my wife and child to the park.
Help me protect my family.
My mom used to put it in a trash bag.
Chicken broth and a can of Crisco.
Yikes.
Grill it on the barbecue.
You'll never go back.
I read that brining keeps the juices in.
Hey, did you remember to take the giblets out of the marinade? - Take what out of what? - C-spine is clear.
Well, we should at least try to pull off the gravy.
All right, sir, I'm gonna take this collar off.
Let us know if anything hurts, okay? Deep fried turkey is a religious experience.
- Gross.
- You'd rather cook it in a trash bag? Americans, so sentimental about their holidays.
This from the guy that celebrates Croatian Independence, Croatian State Day and something called Patriotic Gratitude Day.
- Oh, no.
- What? I have ten minutes left in my shift and the transport pager goes off.
- I'll go.
- No, you can't.
You're an intern.
Maybe the dispatcher just wants to say "Happy Thanksgiving.
" Yeah, right, I'm sure that's what it is.
- Jane? Jane! - Abby.
You're supposed to carry the transport pager overnight, right? - Uh, yeah.
- Well, it just went off, and I was thinking maybe you could just take it? - Mmm no.
- No? Come on.
Why not? Five more minutes, it would've been your call anyway.
Sorry, Abby, it just doesn't really work that way.
What way? Well, if the pager goes off during your shift, then you have to go.
Yeah, but I just want to spend Thanksgiving with my kid.
You know, it's like that story with the guy who's hunting dinosaurs and he strays off the path and steps on a butterfly and then everything in the future's ever so - slightly different.
- What? It's bad karma to mess with the universal order of things.
Erase unicycle man.
He can go.
- Ray.
- Yeah? - Take this run, I'll owe you big time.
- Ooh, I'd love to.
- Great.
- I can't.
Pratt thinks I'm losing too much ER time.
He banned me from transports.
Well, I just like having you near me, Ray.
Surprise, surprise-- you all get me instead of Morris tonight.
He begged me to switch so he could spend time with his kids.
That's why I'm here.
What's your excuse? Henry went to Orlando with his grandparents.
I figured I might as well come in.
Oh.
I love working on Thanksgiving.
Everybody's at home eating and watching football, even the freaks.
Ah, the great American tradition of sanctioned gluttony.
No, thanks.
I'm not trying to block the run, I'm just asking does a garden variety MI really need a doc on board? Miss Lulu Davis, age 12, vomiting and abdominal pain times two hours.
- Hi, I'm Dr.
Figler.
- Hey, Lulu.
We'll take care of you.
I got this.
- Oh, I got here first.
- Yeah, but I'm good with kids.
- Are you saying that I'm not? - No, hold on.
Wait a minute.
H-H-Hold on a second.
Lulu, are you okay? Oops.
Cranberries.
Sorry, Jane.
Karma sucks.
Three hours at 450.
- And don't forget to baste.
- How often? I don't know.
I don't know.
I'll probably be home in time to mash the potatoes.
- Okay, what do I do with the pumpkin? - Oh I forgot about the pie.
- Dr.
Kovac, you got a minute? - Uh, yeah, just a second.
I thought pumpkins were only for Halloween.
You know what, screw the pie.
I never really liked pumpkins anyway.
Are you sure you just don't want to order Chinese? But baste, remember to baste! I went to see your guy, Curtis Ames, yesterday.
He didn't know anything about any kid's toy.
Did he admit to following them to the park? He didn't know what I was talking about.
Look, the guy's had a pretty tough time at things.
You know, he's barely getting by.
Okay, I realize that, but that's no excuse for messing with my family.
If you want my opinion, he's too busy trying to feed and clothe himself to mess with anyone, Doc.
Right.
- You get airsick? - No.
Claustrophobic? Maybe you should just tell me about the patient.
I can't tell you how many docs think they can handle this, - then freak out at altitude.
- I work in an ER.
- It's pretty hard to freak me out.
- You do okay with heights, honey? Loud noises? Yeah, but mice make me jump on a chair and say, "Eek.
" Danny! Meet Dr.
Lockhart! - Hi! - Sit! Don't stand.
Don't disembark till we tell you to.
Keep your headset and your seatbelt on at all times.
If you need to speak to us, slide this switch this way to activate the intercom.
Do not press that button.
That transmits over the radio.
This baby is tight.
Excuse me? First night out after two months of upgrades.
Satellite phone, GPS, new hoist.
All the cool toys.
I'm Jasper.
This is Evan.
Hey.
What'd you say your name was? - Abby.
- Abby.
# Come fly with me # # Let's float down to Peru # # In llama land # # There's a one-man band # # And he'll toot his flute for you # # Come fly with me, Abby # # Let's take off In the blue # Does it hurt when I press or when I let go? About the same.
- I'm thirsty.
- Too bad.
You're NPO.
- What's that? - "Nil per os.
" Nothing by mouth.
Food or liquids may exacerbate or complicate an obstruction, volvulus or inflammation.
Not to mention increased aspiration risk during intubation should you be going to the OR tonight.
Um I'm sorry I threw up on you.
Oh, I don't mind the fact that I had to take a shower to get the chunks out of my hair.
I just honestly don't know how I'm gonna survive a whole shift dressed like this.
Hey, Lulu, I'm gonna order up a few tests to see what's going on in there, okay? I mean, bunnies, puppy dogs-- I'm like breaking out in hives.
Jane, why don't you let me take it from here.
- Your parents are on their way, right? - Uh, yeah, definitely.
I think it's hip.
I think it's fetishy.
I think you totally pull it off.
Shut up, Gates.
Hey, Sam, I need a CBC on the little girl in two.
And order up an extra red top if you can just in case the blood bank needs it.
- Got it.
- Hey, Alex.
Don't ya have anything better to do than hangout with a bunch of losers like us on Thanksgiving? If he stayed at home, he'd play video games all night, so I figured I'd bring him in here and make him do a little community service.
That's cool, man.
Yeah, handing out cookies to sick people.
That's really cool.
Hey, it could be worse.
You could be one of those sick people.
Four pages in the last 20 minutes? - What's the crisis, Dr.
Gates? - Oh, no crisis.
It's just an incarcerated hernia, a gluteal abscess, road rash that needs skin grafting, an imbedded drill bit, rule-out appy on a 12-year-old girl.
- You're making this up.
- I wish I were.
You're sure it's not just an excuse to keep me down here? Oh, please, I would never dream of wasting your time like that.
But really must you look so hot all the time? I mean, even in that ridiculous hat, I can't concentrate.
- I can't even talk.
- You know, enough of this harassment.
I have work to do.
Are you the team from County? Yeah.
Watch it.
Watch it.
Hi, I'm Dr.
Lockhart.
Mom was fine, cooked a 20-pound turkey.
She carved it and then she just collapsed.
- We thought she was kidding around.
- But then we couldn't wake her up.
- That must've been scary.
- Get the history later.
- You guys stay out here.
- We need to examine your mother.
Excuse me, I'm looking for a patient, Elizabeth Timmons.
Thank heavens.
This way.
You didn't say anything about her being intubated.
- They never tell the whole story.
- Vitals? - Tachy to 124, sat 92.
- You got a BP? Last one was 74/38 on dopa.
- Great.
What about an EKG? - Right here.
- Dr.
Russo, thanks for coming.
- Abby Lockhart.
This place gets really backed up when we have a patient like this.
- Sat's 82.
- She's tombstoning.
- What about thrombolytics? - Already gave it, no response.
Okay, okay.
I'm sorry.
Can we have a reality check here? Does this family know how sick she is? They know she's having a heart attack.
Do they know that she's not breathing and her blood pressure sucks and she's probably not perfusing her brain enough? I mean, we can't move her.
- She's unstable.
- The family wants her out of here.
- She won't make the trip.
- You don't know that.
If she survives the helicopter, she will probably die before the family makes it to County.
- What's your point? - Well she's 88 years old.
She's not coming back from this.
Don't you think dying here with her loved ones is better than dying alone in the ICU at County? Listen, Doctor.
Our job is to scoop and run.
The longer we stay and jaw about it, the more unstable this little lady's gonna get.
All right, you know what, just give me five minutes.
I'm gonna make sure they understand.
He drives me around the lake on a tandem bike after Thanksgiving.
Ah, isn't that sweet.
You're blind, Mr.
Hunter.
Maybe you should let her drive.
Oh, that wouldn't work at all.
I can't carry a tune.
He drives, I sing.
It's tradition.
Send him to radiology and call me hen the films get back.
Ray, help.
I need an order for sumatriptan.
- Migraines? - I get one every Thanksgiving.
- It's the stuffing.
- Okay, 20 milligrams intranasally.
Then why do you eat it? Because it's amazing.
Mom makes it with bacon and almonds.
Lands me in the hospital every Thanksgiving.
Hmm, but it's worth it.
I'll be right back with your medicine.
Holidays weird me out.
The special foods, the little rituals.
- It's not my thing.
- Yeah, when I was a kid, Thanksgiving was just an excuse to stay home all day and watch TV.
I always figured when I grew up and had kids of my own, I'd do the whole family thing, a big banquet, but you know, here we are, just me and Alex, hanging out in the hospital.
Didn't your parents demand you come home for the holiday? Nah, my mom's in Trinidad with her new boyfriend and my dad's never even heard of a home-cooked meal, so Ah, well.
At least you got something hot waiting for you at home.
What? Missing your cell phone perhaps? What? Yeah, how did you Hematology needed you, so we called your cell phone and you will never guess who answered.
Surgical med student Katey Alvaro.
- Oh, well, we were studying.
- Right.
I mean, well, she couldn't talk 'cause she was baking you something.
A little treat.
Any chance you could be wrong about this? Well, y-yes, but I just-- - based on my experience - Well, which is it? First, you tell us that he won't survive the trip and now you say that you might be wrong.
I know this is hard.
I'm sorry.
- I just think it's important that you take - Time's up.
Let's go.
- All right, just wait.
- Find the clerk, sign the consent.
- We'll be at County in 45 minutes.
- But she just said that we should think It's your mom's only chance.
Okay.
Uh, take her.
Come on.
She is going to die.
Yeah, and I'm doing my best to facilitate a good death for her.
- That's not your job.
- Not your call.
Here's how it works.
The referring hospital refers and the accepting hospital accepts and we're just the deliverymen.
- Sorry, delivery people.
- You're denying the responsibility - that comes with your job.
- I'm not the one who's in denial here.
Good death? No such thing, babe.
If you think you can make this a good experience for that family, you're even more arrogant than I thought.
Mom, if you can hear me, we'll see you in Chicago.
Okay? Hey, in a few weeks, you're gonna be a great-grandmother.
Everyone stay back.
God bless you, Dr.
Lockhart.
Systolic's holding above 80.
- Yeah, on 20 mikes of dopamine.
- Still counts.
All right, you know, maybe you were right, - maybe - D-Don't say it.
Don't say it.
Nothing more painful than listening to a lady eat crow.
- I'm not eating crow.
- Which reminds me, I am starving.
- Good idea.
- Turkey, cranberry sauce.
- Wife even baked the bread.
- We got a patient here.
She's fine.
You know, I feel sorry for your old man.
What's that supposed to mean? - It's just the turbulence.
- I don't think so.
Charge the defibrillator now.
Febrile to 101, vomiting and mild rebound.
How long has this been going on, sweetie? It started during the salad.
Salad for Thanksgiving? Your family's weird.
- Tell me about it.
- White count? Pending.
Are those chocolate chip? Uh, no.
- Could I have one anyway? - Um, yeah, sure.
You know, this holiday is a lie.
Really? Yeah, the only thing the pilgrims shared with the Indians were measles.
- Okay.
- I'm Lulu.
- Thanks for the cookie.
- Yeah.
Hey, you can't eat that, honey; you're NPO.
Oh, yeah, nil per os.
It's Thanksgiving and I can't even eat.
Alex, what did I tell you about asking the doctors or nurses before giving away the cookies? Labs are back.
Her white count's 14.
Let's get a CT.
I'll call the scanner.
All right, you know, we talked to your mom on the phone earlier and she gave us permission to give you a very special X ray on your tummy.
She didn't want to talk to me? No, but she said to make sure we treat you like a VIP.
- I'm sure she'll be here soon.
- That's okay.
Alex can wait with me.
Right, Alex? Yeah.
Clear! - Still v-fib.
- Damn it.
- She's 88 years old.
- Yeah, I tried to make that point an hour ago.
- We're committed now.
- Lido's in.
All right, another mig of epi.
- She's had five rounds of meds.
- Yeah, well, let's make it six.
We never should have brought her up here.
- Darling, it's the job.
- Oh, spare me the platitudes, okay? Go again.
Go ! Clear! Nothing.
If the scar shows above my bikini, I'm suing both your asses.
Need some help here! Ladies, we're in a hospital now.
- Time to grow up.
- Don't tell me what to do, Grandma.
- Grandma? - You bobble-headed little bitch! Okay, let's settle down.
All right, what happened? - She pushed me into the display.
- I fell, she fell.
These three were fighting over a bag at Bovards' midnight sale.
- All right, come on.
Let's go.
- Midnight sale? It's not even 8:00 yet.
The name's just tradition.
It starts at 4:00 in the afternoon now.
Bendi Brioche 80% off.
- Normally $1,800.
- They only did a limited run.
Somehow during the scuffle, Mandy fell into the nativity display.
- I was pushed.
- Nativity display? It's Thanksgiving.
Yeah, well, that's when the Christmas decorations go up.
Impaled by a fiberglass Star of Bethlehem.
Jane, call surgery.
With all that's happened, I can't keep this now.
Oh, that's so sweet, honey.
Give it back, evil grandma whore.
Wow, this is really sad.
- Hello.
- Hi.
I was just calling to say it's still probably going to be a while.
Are you okay? Abby? Abby? You there? Don't worry.

- What, are we in fifth grade here? - Airmedic 6, dispatch.
- Airmedic 6.
Airmedic 6, we have a report of a vehicle over the side of Highway 16 at Neosha Ravine.
Are you available? - Why aren't you answering her? - We're about to time out.
Pilots are only allowed to fly for a max of 12 hours.
I've been up for almost 11.
Airmedic 6? So you're just going to ignore her? Don't worry.
Another unit will get it.
Yeah, but we're not far from Neosha.
Tell her where we are.
You don't have to look to Daddy for permission.
Just do your job and tell her where we are.

I'm the doctor on board and we're responding.
Darling, it's the job.
No free air, no fluid.

The Thanksgiving sales, the parades, the blockbuster movies.
Those are all just to prime you for the bald- faced commercialism of the holiday season.
Syringe.
Lidocaine, 1%.
- Your wounds are superficial.
- You got lucky.
Yeah, right.
By the time I get back to the sale, all they'll have left are bad colors and big sizes.
You were impaled while fighting over an overpriced vessel for credit cards and lipstick.
Doesn't that sorta kinda feel like a sign? Wake up.
A gram of Ancef, 3-0 silk and irrigation tray.
Jane, uh, stay and assist the doctor.
We should be close! She said "vehicle," not "bus.
" Cheap trick.
How are we supposed to get down there? If you're taking that long to find a pulse, it's not worth looking.
Don't waste time with resuscitations.
- Help the people you can help.
- I know how to triage.
Thank you.
That bus is unstable.
Keep triaging until the cavalry gets here.

My foster mother only keeps me for the money she gets from the state.
When I started barfing at dinner, she loaded me into the ambulance and then went back to her ham.
So she's not coming.

- Boys are easy.

- What about her? - Nothing.
You know, just wondering.
You like her.
- Quiet, you silly infant.
- What about radiology? Alex loves the fluoroscope.

Sam, I got work to do.
Jasmine Chastek, 17, fell down a couple steps, positive LOC.

Sometimes you have to go the extra mile for a girl.
She'll get it.

Lulu's in recovery.
She's doing fine.
Good.
- Go get her.
- Yeah.
We're getting a critical victim in from a bus crash.
I've got to go meet a helicopter on the roof.
Don't you need to be in the ER or something? - No, my shift ended hours ago.
- Well, what are you still doing here? Waiting for you, dummy.
Tony, you know, it's going to be a while.
I've got to get sign-out; - then I've got to take the patient to CT - All right, here's the deal.
You're going home with me tonight.
Why is that the deal? Because there's nobody at my house.
It's Thanksgiving.
And I really, really want to make you dinner.
Okay, chocolate cherry.
Amazing, right? - Wow.

- I'll give her a call.
- Great.
- Who is that? - I just told you who she was.
Come on, now, hook a brother up.
You know what, your gaydar is terrible, even for a straight man.
Oh, well, you You have excellent taste in women, Dr.
Weaver.
Of course I do.
Hey, uh Can I ask you something personal? Maybe.
All right.
How, um No, no.
When did you know you were gay? Are you coming out to me, Greg? No, no, no, no.
I came home and found my brother with another guy.
- Really? - Yeah.
He says he's just experimenting, that it's only a phase.
- And what do you think? - I don't know.
Can a straight guy go through a gay phase? I think it's more likely that he's gay.
Hey, and he's telling you what he thinks you want to hear.
Okay, but for today, right, he's taking some hot girl from school to the family Thanksgiving.
Now, if he was gay, why is he doing that? I don't know your brother.
I mean, I-I don't know what's going on in his head, but I do know that when I was that age, I brought a lot of boys home to meet my parents.
- You did? - Hell, yeah.
I mean, I was 30 before I faced up to being gay, but my life got a lot better once I did.
- Hey, Abby.
- Hey.
- Your transport go okay? - Um yes.
Well, be grateful you got to skip out on this freak show.
- It's been a real madhouse around here.
- Just got lucky, I guess.
Hey, Lockhart.
Hurry up and sign this before I get called out again.
Bye.
And thanks.
You're pretty tough for a girl.
Go to hell.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I was afraid you weren't going to show up.
Sorry, Crenshaw made me do an I&D on my way out.
Come on in.
Hope you're hungry.
Couldn't do the turkey thing so I made tacos.
Homemade salsa, I got these tortillas from the Salvadorian market on Fulton.
- You ever been there? - Uh, don't think so.
Some wine.
You okay? - Uh, yeah.
- Some more wine.
- Want to take your jacket off? - Uh, yeah.
All right.
Are you sure you're cool? 'Cause if you don't like Mexican food, - just say the word and you know.
- No, I'm fine.
Really.
It's just I haven't been in a situation like this for a long time.
- I know.
- It just feels a bit weird standing here knowing we're about to do what we're about to do.
What? Have dinner? Tony, I-I want to be here, I do.
I mean, I've thought about it a lot.
Not creepy-a-lot, but it's definitely been on my mind and I wouldn't want you to be worried that I don't really want I'm not worried.
We can take it as slow as you want.
Slow? - Hey, stranger.
- Hey.
Well, thank you.
- And what are you doing here? - Working.
Surgeons are such bastards making med students come in on Thanksgiving.
That is really, really low.
No, actually, it's the bastards in the ER who scheduled me for this.
- What? - I started an ER rotation.
Tonight.
Now, see, you said you were never going to Yeah, radiology fell through at the last minute.
I got reassigned.
Don't freak out.
I'm not stalking you.
- Okay, look, I can't evaluate you.
- We'll work it out.
And I can't have these people thinking - We'll work it out.
- Okay.
Hey, Abby.
What took so long? You were out all night.
Well, you know, sometimes these things can take hours.
You sure you weren't just having sundaes with the team? Last run I did we burned off the whole shift at the Plush Horse.
Good for you, Ray.
Well, well, well, look who's back.
She got to soar over Chicago while we dealt with maggots and colostomy bags.
I guess I must have done something good in a past life.
Yeah, well, you look wiped.
Transports can do that to you if you're not used to it.
- So you want me to get you a coffee? Or - No, thanks.
Right now I really just want to go home.
No, stay.
We just got here.
I missed you guys.
I know we had no water or toilet paper Oh, my God.
Meg, Sarah, this is Neela.
How many times do I have to tell you, Tony? When you leave the glass directly on the wood, it leaves a stain.
- You hungry? - Yeah, I'm starving.
All right, let me get my stuff, and then, uh, we can pick up something at the chicken place.
Sam, Alex, Happy Thanksgiving.
There's some food over there, help yourselves.
Wow, thanks, Luka.
- Tofurkey anyone? - Uh no.
- I'll try it.
- Are you really a vegan? Surgeons just shouldn't be carnivores.
It's a known fact.
- What the hell is that? - Looks like milk Jell-O.
Mmm, no, coconut flan and it is killer.
Oh, hey, Dr.
Weaver, do you remember me? - Katey Alvaro.
- Oh, hi, Katey.
How are you? I'm good.
Um, I started my ER rotation about an hour ago.
Oh, yeah, well, I hope Ray's giving you the lay of the land.
Oh, yeah, he is.
Definitely.
All right, how do you stay so skinny and eat so much? Uh, look who's talking, little skinny mini.
Well, it seems like good genes to me.
You want to come over and watch some football with me and Kerry tomorrow? Damn, you're lucky.
- I can't believe you made all this.
- Well, maybe I cheated a little.
If anything happens to me you'll remember that Joe likes strawberries but raspberries give him hives, right? - What are you talking about? - And and if you put the ceiling fan on in the bathroom, he doesn't cry when he's in tube.
- I know that.
- And it's absolutely mandatory that he be exposed to everything Stevie Wonder recorded in the '70s.
Dr.
Lockhart, that trauma you choppered in did well in the OR.
Oh, great.
That's great.
Yeah, it required over 12 units but, uh, she's holding her own in recovery.
Thanks.
Are you okay? How did the transport go? Hey, I have my kid here.
It's Thanksgiving.
I'll tell you tomorrow.
