Is that a staff meeting? That was fun.
Yeah, can't wait for the next one.
Don't know what this guy's up to.
It ain't gonna fly.
- Not sure there's anything we can do.
- Get Kovac to come back ASAP? Luka's not the chief anymore.
Moretti's the man now.
Well, someone should talk to Anspaugh.
- Me? Why me? - Come on, girl.
- I've seen that old Abby charm.
- Old? Anspaugh's not gonna give a damn that we don't like the new guy.
He's gonna say we haven't given him a chance.
Why? Because he's only been working here 13 hours? Hey, let's go grab a drink while we plan the revolution.
- I could use something to eat.
- You're buying.
Me? No, no, no, I'm not buying, and I'm not going.
Oh, come on.
Where's that old Pratt charm? Oh, maybe just one.
Hi.
Are you the charge nurse? Sent me down from the dean's office, I'm a new intern.
Interns don't start for another month, so you're early.
Actually, I'm late.
Like, almost a year.
Had some trouble last spring with the law.
But it's all good now, you can see here.
That's just me.
Kind of skyjewkuss, if you know what I mean.
- I don't.
- Ah.
Oh, it kind of means off-kilter, in case you were wondering.
I wasn't.
Hey, leave her alone now.
He's who you wanna talk to.
Are you Grady? Hi, I'm Kevin Moretti.
So you're my clod of unmolded clay.
My tabula rasa.
Aren't you new too? I heard you just took over, like, today.

You're okay.
We'll drop you off, then get back.
There's 50 more victims.

It's okay, buddy.
Sorry.
Give me two of MS and a couple of rolls to stabilize.
Yeah, Bardelli in 93 is trying to locate a victim from the park.

It's pain medication.
It won't hurt at all.
Yeah, a female doc, works at County.
- How old is she? - Twenty-nine.
Twenty-nine years old.
Name, Neela Rasgotra.
- What we need is a unified approach.
- Like what? Like a secret signal to each other " if" we don't agree with what Moretti's saying.
- What are we, like 8 years old? - No, I like it.
It's good.
Say we think an intubation is called for and Moretti disagrees I can look at Morris across the gurney and go like this: Heh.
Abby, don't encourage him, okay? Heh.
Oh, that can't be good.
Maybe we should get out of here before Moretti decides to Ah I knew I should have gone home.

Yeah, okay.
Please have somebody call down if you hear anything.
Is she out of surgery? Yo, Taggart.
Got a live one for you.
Found him in the street, directing traffic.
Well, I was just trying to calm the masses.
There was so much negative energy that nobody could feel the universal connection that we all have.
- Right, what are you on, buddy? - Oh, no.
You know, when I touch you like this we are exchanging matter on a subatomic particle level.
I don't know where your atoms have been.
Keep them to yourself.

Ho-ho.
Oh, this is so good.
No, don't stop.
Excuse me.
Do you have any medical problems? No.
My skin becomes transparent, occasionally.
I can see my organs, but I'll going to get a urine tox screen and find him a comfy bed.
- Dive, dive! - Don't touch that.
You'd better hold my hand if you don't want me to just float away.

I can feel the love you have for your friend.
- It's beautiful.
- Any other victims? - No, I think we got most of them.

Not today.
Complex, stellate liver laceration.
It's a bear-claw injury.
You'll never repair that.
What? Why? What do you mean? Bovie.
Bleeding too briskly.
Bovie can't even coagulate.
- Well, what else can you do? - Get me the argon-beam coagulator.
The thing to do is pack up the liver, put in a Bogota bag, close her up.
We'll come back in two days for repair.
- Two days? - No.
I don't want biliary leaks or abscess formation.
Lap pads.
- Can't screw around while she bleeds.
- You can't try to repair the liver? We would have to clamp the artery less than an hour before the liver died.
- Can you do it in an hour? - No.
Yes, yes, we can try.
Where's my argon? - Ready in a minute.
Stop.
- You're not helping.
- That makes two of us.
- I don't know what you're getting at.
- Doctor.
Perhaps you should just shut up, both of you.
Lucien, can the repair be done? - Yeah, yes, it can.
- Okay.
Dr.
Crenshaw's gonna do it.
What? - You're too close to this.
You know I'm right so let him operate you'll assist and I'll keep time, okay? Okay, you.
- How's it going here? - Hand service can take him in an hour.
Good.
- Can I get something to drink? Chuny, why don't you get him some ice chips.
All right.
So whose? Whose lawn were you cutting? - Mine.
- Yours.
All right.
Says here you live on Halstead.
Not a lot of lawns out there on Halstead, right? There's some grass around the building, on the side.
Right.
So, what are you, the super? No, but sometimes I help out.
So you help out the super cut the lawns on the side of the? - He's old.
I feel sorry for him.
- Yeah.
You know, there are a lot of hospitals between Halstead and County.
- That's my stuff.
- Right.
I stopped by a friend's house around here.
She told me I needed to go to the hospital.
- What are you doing? - Doesn't smell like gasoline, does it? - Smell that.
That smell like gasoline? - No.
I didn't spill it.
- Does it smell like gas? - No! Smells like black powder, doesn't it? What's this? A lighter.
Your chart says you don't smoke, but what's that? What was it? M-80? Cherry bomb? What? - Where you going? - You're crazy.
- Get back in bed.
- No.
What are you doing? - Where the docs don't sniff your - Oh, yeah? - What's your problem? - You know what my problem is, ass? All these people are here because of you.
Look at this girl.
Look at that girl.
You see that? This is your fault.
Look at him.
Look at him, huh? That's because of you.
Tony! - What are you doing? This guy, you see him? - Tony, calm down.
Use your brain.
You killed people.
Do you understand? Look over there.
Look at that little girl.
You killed that girl.
All right? You killed people.
You understand that? Are you supposed to be a tough guy? Where'd you hear that? - Oh, I don't know.
Word on the street.
- Mm.
Seems you have a history of violence whenever your vocabulary is overtaxed.
That happens with alarming frequency.
Look around.
Every bed has a patient because of that jackass.
- Not to mention Dr.
Rasgotra.
- Yeah.
Not to mention.
You think a dalliance with a coworker mitigates the situation? - Is that what you think? - I don't know.
- You don't know.
It doesn't.
- Hmm.
You attacked a patient.
Who caused a riot that messed up a lot of people.
That has been established.
For what? For nothing.
Because he thought it was fun.
I don't care! I don't care! I don't care if he attacked your crippled, blind mother.
You are not gonna get away with this stuff anymore.
- You understand me? - Yeah.
- Do you? - Yes, sir, I do.
I will check myself next time this happens.
- You can check yourself in the ICU.
- What? There are lots of lessons for a guy like you up there.
Trust me.
- You're kidding? - No, I'm not kidding you.
The ICU forces one especially an ex-paramedic, ER doc like yourself to slow down and to think.
People are dying up there, often in excruciatingly slow ways " so" you won't really have much choice.
We're at 52 minutes.
Okay, release the Pringle.
Let's see if the dam holds.
- How's the liver look? Not bad.
Not bad at all.
Minimal oozing.
Systolic's holding at 110.
- It was a sound approach, Lucien.
- Well, you executed it well.
Let's hope that her brain was sufficiently perfused.
We'll see how she wakes up.
Dr.
Crenshaw, brachial artery repair is ready for you in 2.
- Care to finish? - Yes, I would.
A few big liver sutures and simple closure.
I'll be in O.
R.
2 if you need me.
And I have to get back downstairs.
So I'll "just " I'll check on her later.
Okay.
I'll let you know when she's in Recovery.
What's the word on Neela? She took 10 units of blood.
Yeah, they're still working on her.
Take a deep breath and let it out.
Another deep breath.
Let it out.
Now you're gonna feel some discomfort " but" it's not going to bother you, because you're in your safe place.
Hey, you old stoner, what are you doing? Well, it's a Colles' fracture, I've reduced and casted.
What? You what? This is embarrassing.
I've neglected to introduce myself properly.
I am James Broderick.
I'm the chair of Orthopedics at St.
Raphael's Hospital.
You're a doctor? One of the leading orthopods in the country, yes.
- And you are doctor? - Morris.
- Morris, yes.
- Why don't we get you back to a bed.
And maybe it's best if you don't touch anyone else.
I don't mean to brag, but I am here now.
And there are those who feel I have a certain gift.
Well, save it for Christmas.
We're good at this ourselves.
You're not licensed to practice in this hospital.
Will you show this gentleman back to his bed, please? - This way, sir.
- Sure.
But I am internationally renowned.
Don't let him drift away.
He's on a beach.
- Look at that cast.
It's perfect.
- Looks nice.
- I didn't do it.
- Who did? - A patient.
- Fast learner.
Hey, I heard Moretti reassigned you.
I'm sorry.
- It's only temporary.
- I'm sure.
So, what's happening in surgery? She's had a hard time maintaining her BP.
- They said she's in renal failure.
- I'm calling.
No, you're not.
They're in the middle of surgery.
Let them do their thing.
- Who's there with her? - Crenshaw and Dubenko.
- She's in good hands.
- Abby's there too.
Not anymore.
Is she all right? Yeah.
She in Recovery? They just They repaired the liver.
Her vitals are stable, and Dubenko was closing up.
- She awake? - Not yet.
With the arrest and hypotension, probably be a while.
Yeah, that's what they said.
- Well, that's great.
- Yeah.
All right, where's Mussolini? He said he needed me down here.
He gave me these to give you.
You're not to see "him " until they are all disposed.
- Okay.
Thank you.
Mm.
All right, watch your step.
Easy now.
Melman? Melman.
Where the hell did we put Melman? You're not lost, are you? - Lf you need directions, you know - No, no.
You know why we're here? Because of war.
Without it, you would be a pediatrician or an oncologist " and" I'd probably still be losing my mind in the ICU.
- War, huh? - Mm-hm.
Emergency medicine is actually the result of centuries of warfare.
It's a field that was defined by doctors and nurses in bombed-out buildings trying to take care of patients on dirty canvas stretchers.
And performing procedures in tent hospitals that were literally hundreds of feet away from where the battles raged.
And these people, our predecessors they had a simple primary focus.
Survival.
And down in the bunkers, they dug in deep " to" try to save their patient's lives, and to try to save their own lives.
And they ended up giving life to this whole new art form this great collaborative enterprise that we still carry on today.
That's why we're here.
You don't get out much, do you? If you can't take the bunker, get out of the trauma room.
Ha.
I hope, I hope you're not talking about me.
Heh.
No.
If I can't manage this floor during a mass-cas then what good am I? Every day is not the bunker.
Most days aren't, in fact.
Thank God.
I guess every war teaches us something, right? I wonder what we'll learn from this one.
Hey, stop it.
- Somebody call Security.
Stop that.
You son of a bitch.
- Get off of him.
You killed her.
MORETTl: Hey, come on, come on.
You killed her.
- You son of a bitch.
MORETTl: Come here.
- You MORETTl: Hey, hey.
Hey, hey, hey.
You killed her.
MORETTl: Come here.
You stupid You killed her.
- Stop.
- You Let me go.
Sir.
Sir? Not responsive.
No pulse.
- He's not breathing.
She's ready for an ABG on 5 liters.
No problem.
- Hey, how's she doing? - Pressure's up, hematocrit's 32.
- Hi, Mayday.
- That's good.
She'll be sleeping for a while.
It's probably best if you wait out here.
I have several pages of postop orders to write.
Be an hour before she's ready for visitors.
I'll just I'll wait out here, okay? - Check a repeat HemoCue in 15 minutes.
- Got it.
You gonna write those postop orders now? No, I already did.
It's all on the chart.
No, call PR.
That's extension 456.
County, hello? Extension 456.
Hello? Didn't I just talk to you and tell you we already have digital television? Criminy.
Telemarketers.
Hey, Frank.
Heard Neela's in recovery.
Yeah.
I have confirmation on that.
Is she awake? - Negative.
- Look, it's irrelevant, right? - Yeah, it doesn't mean anything.
I mean, it'd be weird if she was awake this soon.
- Absolutely.
- Sam was about to go up there.
She wondered if anybody wanted to go with her.
Any news? Vitals are stable, crits are okay.
- She hasn't woken up yet.
- How much longer is it gonna be? Oh, waking up takes awhile after all that anesthesia.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Has anybody seen her? - I saw her on her way to Recovery.
- She looked okay.
- Can we go in? Not yet.
Dubenko said he'll let us know.
So I guess we wait.
I'm calling for pizza.
Who's in? - Cool.
Pratt, you buying? - No, no, I'm not.
- Sure, you are.
- You got cash, right?
