Anybody want one? - No.
No.
- No, it's cool.
- I'm good.
- You okay, Frank? - Oh, my back's a little stiff.
- It's fine.
- Okay.
- Morris, what are you doing? - Oh, it's a well-known medical axiom.
If the ages of all the patients in the ER add up to 1,000, you can go home.
- So far I'm up to 781.
- Is that for real? I heard your shift is over when you treat a pirate and his parrot.
All right, look, look, nobody's going anywhere unless I say so.
And I say, Ray, infected tummy tuck in Two.
Morris, we got a rig pulling in any minute.
And you can go out and - calculate that.

- Thanks, Luka.
Alfred Gower, 63.
Blocked G-tube.
Under hospice care for end-stage esophageal cancer.
- Hospice? Why is he here? - It's a G-tube.
It's a comfort measure.
- What the hell? - Been at it ever since we picked him up.
Ma'am, you need to stop that.
Hey, I hear we're going out for drinks after for your birthday.
Oh, no, it's not a big deal.
We don't have to.
You know what, lady, you're gonna have to knock it off.
I'm gonna rip that camera right out of your hand.
It's okay, miss.
She's with me.
You know what, I really don't care, you're in our way.
Come on, I'm authorized.
Come on, smile for the camera, birthday girl.
Hey! Knock it off! - Can I help you with something, Morris? - No, but I can help you with one word.
- Las Vegas.
- Pardon? Okay, two words.
It is the hot venue for destination weddings.
- What? How did you? - No, no, no, don't- don't worry.
I've been sworn to secrecy.
So Las Vegas.
It has glitz, glamour, Celine Dion Abby and I are not exactly the glitz and glamour type.
Well, there are plenty of cultural things to do, too.
The Hoover Dam, Liberace Museum - Nudes on Ice, page 48.
- Morris, I'm not talking about this.
And if I were you, I wouldn't mention it to Abby either, okay? What about for your bachelor party? Did I mention the brothels in Nevada? - They're legal! - What's legal? - Uh cockfighting in Louisiana.
- Good to know.
- You all right? - I'm great.
I'm great.

Yep, there it is Frank, what's up? Uh, hello.
I'm Doctor Lockhart.
- Uh, so you fainted at the, uh - Sun n' Go.
- I was waiting for a tanning bed when - She passed out.
It was awful.

Well, that doesn't really sound like breakfast.
We're gonna be tan and thin for spring break if it kills us.
- Yeah.
- Well, you're on your way.
Hey, Sam, can I get two liters of saline and a chem panel? Mm-hmm, sure.
Wow.
That's some color you guys got there.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
You know, tanning puts you at serious risk for cancer.
Ever think about a self-tanner or spray-on tans? Yeah, you don't want to have skin like leather when you're in your 40s.
We're still at an age where we care how we look.
Okay.
Uh we're gonna need to keep you here while we wait for you labs.
Ouch.
I cannot believe we just got dissed by those walking raisins.
I hope it rains every day on spring break.
- Oh, happy birthday, by the way.
- Thanks.
Hey, Mr.
Gower, we got a new G-tube in your size.
You can't unclog it? They tried flushing it, but it didn't work, so doctor's gonna have to replace it.
Let's forget about the G-tube.
I'll buy us all a steak and a bottle of Cabernet.
That's tempting, but how about I get you a pureed meal and an Ensure chaser? Somehow that doesn't quite make it.
Uh I didn't get a chance before.
My name is Diana Moore.
Hi.
Sam Taggart.
Listen, about earlier Don't worry about it, no problem.
Uh, no, I wanted to say that even if you are authorized, you can't get in the way of us doing our job.
Um, okay, won't happen again.
Don't blame Diana, she's dedicated to her work.
- What is that, patient paparazzi? - Yeah, actually.
I'm documenting hospice patients through their deaths.
But I keep mucking it up by continuing to breathe.
It's all about you, isn't it? Look, I got to hang around long enough to convince her to run away with me to Cabo.
- And I'm holding out for Maui.
- Okay, Maui.
- Okay then.
- Sam do you have someplace I could stash my stuff and maybe upload some photos? You know what, let me check.
I'll be back.
Hey, Frank.
Can I get a pureed meal for trauma one? - You're asking me because? - Make it mashed potatoes and turkey.
- Somebody's getting bossy in her old age.
- I'm only 28.
Yeah, well, live it up while you can.
You're about to hit the big 3-0.
I'm not afraid of turning 30.
Morris, I got the G-tube for Mr.
Gower.
Well, I think you should be.
That's when gravity takes over and everything north of the equator turns south.
- What? - He means you got a very small window before you go from "Miss" to "Ma'am," skinny jeans to relaxed fit, blonde highlights to little black chin hairs.
- Oh, that's so wrong.
- No, really Larry, I realize you're a smart guy, and I know Pratt assigned you to me, - but I do my best work alone.
- But I really want to learn.
Categorize the charts here.
- You want it by patient name, arrival time? - Surprise me.
Hey, Frank, you know anything about Bluetooth technology? - What the hell is a Bluetooth? - I'll take that as a "no.

- I'm going to go.
- Me, too.
And you don't find it a tad morbid? Well, yeah, I mean, it's been known to stop a few conversations at cocktail parties, but I'm not really just documenting the end of somebody's existence, I'm telling the story of people's lives rich with history, - engaged in the struggle to survive.
- But don't they ever want to let go? Yeah.
Sometimes.
Could be beautiful, too.
You know? Seen a lot of dying in my life.
Just made me want to live more.
What do you mean a lot of dying? Well, name a war or civil unrest since Somalia, Chechnya, Tiananmen Square, Iraq.
I can see why you're a big hit at parties.
Mm, yeah, well You know what, when their eyes start to glaze over, I trot out the stories of the famous fashion photographer I worked with in Paris right out of high school.
Paris? Wow, I always wanted to see Paris.
nothing to tie me down.
- You know what I mean? - Oh, yeah, sure.
Then I went through, like, this, like, avant-garde stint for awhile that didn't pay the rent, so I tried nature photography.

We drove straight through to New York.
We worked the pile for a couple weeks, not that we found anyone alive.
You think that's what caused this? Well, we kept working, breathing in pulverized concrete, glass, dust particles laced with benzene, dioxin, asbestos, lead Were you wearing any protective gear? According to the government and the EPA, we didn't need any.

I feel a defect.
- Surgery, what's the story? - Blunt trauma, flail chest.
Hypotensive despite fluid resuscitation and transfusion.
We hooked up the cell saver to recycle the blood while I put in the second chest tube.
- There was a small amount of fluid in the - Pericardium.
And I thought maybe there was a ventricular laceration from a fractured rib, so we decided to do a thoracotomy.
There was a defect in the ventricle, and now Neela's holding pressure on it.
- Excellent, Mae Lee.
- Wait a minute.
That is not ex I'll take it from here.
There's still a couple of surgical consults in the ER.

Not worrying about the stupid stuff.

- Good.
How's that going, by the way? All done.

And they say that now they'll be able to keep in touch with me better, and it's going to be really good for emergencies 'cause I'll have it, - and then you'll be able to - All right.
I'm sold.
I'm sold.
- But we're going set up some rules.
- Of course we are.
Did you have a good time? Yeah.
Grandpa let me ride ride Beauty.
She's the one that's completely jet black with a white spot in the middle of her forehead.
- Sounds like fun.
- Yeah.
And they told me all these stories about mom.
Like, when she was my age, she took Grandpa's car for a ride without asking.
Yeah? Well, don't get any ideas.
Do you think maybe you'd like to spend a little more time with them? Sure.
Maybe, I don't know, you think you might want to live with them? Well, I don't know.
I mean, my school's here, so I can't really do that.
And all my friends are here.
You're here, too.
I mean, why would I want to do that? Just asking.
Come on.
Let's get my stuff, get out of here.
V-fib.
Charge the internal paddles.
Tie the suture while they prepare to defibrillate.
Tie the knot.
- Mae Lee, tie the knot.
- Charged! Clear.
Clear! Still no response.
Mae Lee, tie the knot! - Get out of my way.
- Got it! Could be hypocalcemic from massive transfusion.
She's also hypoxic from the pulmonary bleed.
Clear! Still no pulse.
She's in pump failure from cardiac contusion.
Resume internal compressions.
- Oh, come on.
- V-fib again! I don't think we're going to get her out of it this time.
No, she's coagulopathic.
I can't stop the bleeding.
- 30 joules.
- Okay, clear.
Stop, stop, stop.
Stop it! Stop it! There's nothing more we can do.
Stop it.
It's over.
It's over.
Call it, Ray.
Okay.
Time of death: 13:25.
Repair of a cardiac laceration is way beyond a fourth-year medical student.
I did the repair.
Mae Lee put in one stitch.
I was already there.
I was in a much better position to assist you.
You're going to have to learn to share the sandbox, Neela.
Mae Lee's here for four weeks.
You've got four more years.
- You'll get another chance.
- This isn't about the procedure.
- Do you have a problem with me? - Do I have a problem with you? Look, you're a very talented surgeon, Neela, but yeah, maybe I've let our personal friendship get in the way - of our professional relationship, yeah.
- Well, how? What do you mean? I'm the chief, and you're an intern.
That's it.
- Maybe I've sent off mixed signals.
- No, no.
no.
It seems very clear.
You're angry with me, but I don't understand why.
Is this about Manish? I am not angry with you.
And this is not about Manish.
I just I just think it's time we reset our dynamic.
Reset? Are you going to reset that dead woman in there? Reset her grieving husband? No.
You can't take it personally when a surgery doesn't go well, just as I can't make surgical decisions based - Based on what? - on my personal feelings towards you.
Look, we both know that poor woman didn't die because Mae Lee was in there, and you weren't.
Her injuries were far too great.
Nothing on this earth could have saved her.
Give it to me straight.
Your blood work was normal.
Your chest X rays were clear.
But there is some evidence of sinusitis.
So here are your films and your test results, plus a prescription for azithromycin and Pulmicort-- that's an inhaler.
It should help.
- So I'm okay for now? - Looks like it.
This is a good thing.
There's lots of other people worked at Ground Zero, and at the landfills.
I mean, how many of them are walking time bombs? No good deed goes unpunished, I guess.
- Maybe, next time, we'll be smarter.
- Maybe, now, you'll tell your wife.
What? And give her more ammo to nag me about? - Night, Lockhart.
- Good night.
Someone from Social Work will be down to help you with arrangements.
Is there anyone we can call? No.
It was just the two of us.
We liked it like that.
We never ran out of things to say, even on long stretches of road that seemed to go on for days.
Must be nice to spend that much time with the person you love.
Actually, she was the brains behind everything.
Did all the paperwork, paid the bills, read the road maps.
I can't tell you how many times she kept us from getting lost.
Today was going be different.
- Different? - Yeah.
The rain makes her sleepy.
So I told her to take a nap.
I was sure I knew what exit to take.
But the sign wasn't the sign.
I-I got confused.
I didn't want to wake her up.
I wanted to do it myself.
Do what? Read.
I wanted to read the damn exit sign.
Derek, you You don't know how to read? Mary was trying to teach me.
You graduated high school and went to college? They just passed me along.
Nobody cared as long as I could read the defense and get the ball in the end zone.
Coaches said I was gonna get drafted first round.
I wasn't prepared for it not to work out.
I'm sorry.
I just wanted to make you proud.
I'm sorry.
Get go that way.
Sarah? I'll do the dishes after I do my homework, okay? This isn't about the dishes.
Could you come back in here a sec? I need to talk you for a second.
I've been trying to figure out a way to tell you this, and if I should tell you this.
What? The night that your mom died she told me that I'm your father.
My dad's name was Keith.
He died.
I know, I know.
We all thought that your dad was Keith.
But, um there's a chance that that might not be true.
But Mom didn't tell me.
- Why wouldn't she tell me? - I don't know, sweetie.
She must have had her reasons.
So are you my dad or not? Well, there's a simple test we can take.
It's called a paternity test, and, um if you want we can take it tonight.
Why are you doing this now? Is this just because I don't want to go and live with Grandma and Grandpa? - Sarah, I just, I - You're just trying to get rid of me.
- I just, I want what's best for you.
- No, you're lying! I know you're lying.
You're lying just like Mom! She always lied.
- Sarah - No! Okay?! I don't want you to be my dad, and I'm not taking your test! You know, Morris might have something.
Maybe we should get married someplace exotic.
Like where? The beach or the mountains.
Why don't we go to Croatia? Really? But no one from work would be able to be there.
Do it! Do it! I'm gonna do it.
Would that be so bad? Morris! Hope.
- We need to talk to you.
- Who? Us? Look, listen.
Abby and I really appreciate your interest in our engagement.
It's so exciting! The wedding! Sorry.
And while your planning is very thoughtful it's borderline obsessive.
- Oh, we've been, we just want to help.
- Well, next time just don't help.
And don't blab.
To anybody.
Not us, just, no one.
Okay.
- I mean, if that's what you want.
- We do! Hey, everybody! Look who's here! - Look at everybody.
- Let's have a toast, Sam.
To Sam! Happy birthday and many more.
B-10.
You didn't actually mean to put in "Get Down Tonight"? I like KC and the Sunshine Band.
Besides, it's a hell of a lot better than the choice that you made.
Oh.
Hey.
Hey, "Woman" by Wolfmother.
That is destined to be a classic.
On what planet? Now I now we're pretending to be normal, and I know we're pretending that this isn't awkward, but, uh - it's kinda awkward, isn't it? - Yeah.
Kinda.
So, what do we just gonna say that this never happened? Well, I know we should talk about this, but these days I just feel like my head's gonna explode.
It's just a lot of stuff going on.
Gates.
I'm trying to figure it out.
I-I, I want to figure it out.
It-it, it's just I just need some time.
Yeah, I've been there once before.
Didn't turn out so good for me.
Well, you won't have to wait long.
Okay? Okay.
Oh, yes.
B-10! - Ah, somebody make it stop! - Sam, come and dance with us! - Please! - Ah all right.
Oh.
Wait a second, you guys.
Be right back.
Hello? Hey, wait.
I can barely hear you.
Hold on! No, no, no.
Don't hang up.
Wait a sec.
Wait a sec.
Alex? Hey.
I'm so glad you called.
I was worried.
Yeah? Yeah, it is my birthday.
Thank you.
You okay? If the test says you're my dad, can I stay with you? Absolutely.
Okay.
You sure? Is it gonna hurt? No.
No, we just take a little swab on one cheek.
And we send it to the lab and then they send us the results in the mail.
- That's it? - Mm-hmm.
And until then? Nothing changes.
Of course I'm coming up this weekend.
Yeah.
Uh, well, maybe.
What if I brought you? Oh, you gotta go? Okay, time's up.
I got it.
I miss you, too.
Thanks for calling me, okay? I love you, too, baby.
Okay.
Bye.
So you've already got a law degree and now you're going to medical school.
Eh, corporate law wasn't for me.
I wasn't helping anyone.
Besides, I need to be where the action is.
What?! What is this?! Come on, you jokers, get out on the dance floor.
- Come on.
- No, sorry.
No chance.
Oh, come on, Frank.
You know you want to.
Larry? Times like these, I see all these young people together makes me fear for the future of mankind.
