OK, settle down.
I have never seen anything like that, ever.
You are the man.
- Do you have anything for me or not? - Sore throat and fever in five, a sprained ankle in one and an ear infection in the cubicle known as two.
Knock yourself out, my lord.
You didn't just do a thoracotomy.
- How did I miss it? - You know what, it was no big deal.

Family.
Thing.

No big deal, huh? - Is your dad always on you like that? - You mean is he always trying - to run my life? - Yeah.
Twenty-four-seven.
Whatever, the man's obsessed.
OK, I told him that you had to get me to the X-ray room and I'd be there all day, so he might as well go to work.
Nice.
Oh, you know how to do those emoticon things.
I never figured that out.
I spent a lot of time in this hospital.
I met this girl Patti, she's still here.
She hot? Yeah? Wait, like the only girl within ten blocks hot or actually, empirically, smoking hot? Empirically hot.
My dad can't stand her.
Says she's a disincentive to me growing up.
Let's go pay her a visit.
There he is.
The man himself.
Dr.
Allen Conner, - ladies and gentlemen.
- Are those them? Had the whole world in his hands, this guy! OK, OK.
Show me what you got.

- What? What? I hear things.
In the pipes.
Voices.
You.
Moving upstairs.
Chief.
What? Frank, no.
- There's no way.
- Allen, you gotta do it, you gotta do it.
- You're the devil we know.
- What the hell is that supposed to mean? Look, we need a Chief of Staff who gets it.
Even a little.
And you get it.
A little.
But hey, you sent us one of your own, and we took care of him, didn't we? Take the job.
- I don't need the job, I need shoes.

These are all women's.
What the hell am I going to wear? No kidding, thoracotomy? Who did it? - My father.
- Good for him.
Keep the sponges coming, that's it.
Suction.
Right in there.
I'm getting ready to suture, but I can't get a clear field.
on a large needle.
OK, just be careful.
Do it tight, but not too tight.
Damage the muscle, it's gonna take us an extra hour.
Tight, - but not too tight.
Don't want to - Where's all that blood - coming from? - Pressure's not rising.
Get a second suction going.
Call down for more blood.
We're gonna need it.
- Secondary injury from bullet? - More likely Papa Conner, I'd hate to say.
Thoracotomies are a hatchet job.
We could be dealing with anything here.
I am so bored, I could literally scoop my eyeballs out with a spoon and eat them for lunch.
What did I tell you? Empirically.
Who's the frat boy in brown? My name's Griffin and I'm his porter for the evening.
Griff rocks.
- Do you wanna climb in? - Do we have time? Go for it, man.
Come here, geek boy.
I've missed you.
Two minutes.
- Hey.
You hear about Tuttle? - What about her? She resigned.
She's out.
- I need a you want a salad? - No.
- She's out, what do you mean she's out? - "Personal reasons".
No notice even, she's already cleared out her office.
- What do you think happened? - How should I know? - You think Dad'll want his old job back? - You'd have to ask him.
What are you doing now? - Uh, patient call.
- Oh, who? I didn't call, did I call? No, I just I'm on my way to one.
- I thought I'd drop by, say hi.
- Oh, that's nice.
I need a salad.
Come with me.
Yeah, no.
No, I mean, I, uh Go, but I gotta get back to work.
- Well, I'm gonna fall over, so.
- Go, go, go.
Eat a salad.
- Hey.
- Hey.
What's going on? I'm just looking for Marla.
Who's that? Hey, look, what I meant to say before is my entire life, there's been this constant scrutiny.
- Whatever, Griff.
It's your family.
- OK, but in my family, this smothering is relentless, and you don't live with that kind of pressure, Zoe.
Yeah, 'cause it's so much easier growing up in a foster home.
No, it isn't, that's not what I said.
It's just it's different.
And you don't know how it feels, that's all I meant to say.
You're right, I don't.
See you later.
Time's up.
There's no way that is two minutes.
Cindy Walker.
23.
Abdominal pain, nausea.
No recent surgeries.
Hi, Cindy.
Let's see if we can't sort this out, OK? Can you tell me exactly where the pain is, Cindy, - exactly where? - (gagging) - (coughing) - What has she eaten? We had fish tacos for lunch, but I had them too and I'm fine.
Let's get abdo blood work, urinalysis, beta HCG, cardiac enzymes, ultrasound and an ECG.
You hang tight, Cindy.
- We'll figure this out.
- You don't think maybe it was myocardial infarction can be accompanied by indigestion, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.
I need you to do me a favour - Dr.
Conner.
Two words Fish tacos.
- I understand that If I eat a chorizo sausage and it comes back on me, it does not a myocardial infarction make.
- I crossed the line, didn't I? - A little.
Do me a favour, call up to OR four and ask how it's going.
Actually, forget it.
I'll go up myself.
(vomiting) We need a cleanup on bed four.
Leona Park.
She came in through the ER.
They're the ones that made the call to admit her.
What's wrong with her? - Sorry, can't tell you that.
- You have to.
Why? What's going on? What? What is it? She's my mother.
- She's your really? - I know, - I actually have one.
- No that's not I just thought She was gone forever? So did I.
I mean, she can't just show up out of nowhere and just expect me to give her a hug.
How sick is she? Some blood irregularities.
They want to do a bone marrow biopsy.
- That sounds serious.
- It is.
It could be.
- You retrieve the bullet yet? - Not a good time, Dad.
- How's it going? - How's it look like it's going? We've repaired the initial injury.
Danny's hanging in.
Initial injury? Does that mean - Nothing we can't handle.
- Hold steady.
So there was another one? Another injury? My cut? - Something happened - Your cut was fine, Dad.
I'll come down when we're done, OK? - If my cut was fine - You put a hole in the kid's heart, Allen.
With your finger, you poked it right through.
That's what happened, alright? - (beeping) - Heart rate's up to 207.
Dammit.
V-tach.
Get me the paddles.
Don't you die, Danny boy.
Do not.
OK, charge to 5.
Clear.
Shock.
Still no output.
- Charge to 10 joules.
- Get out of my OR, Allen! Now! Clear! Shock! Do I look like her? A little.
Zoe I don't think I look like her.
I always wondered if I did, but I don't think I do.
What's happening? The needle's going right through the bone.
They're pulling out some fluid, just a couple drops.
- Is it painful? - Uh-huh.
But she's sedated, so.
OK.
- Here goes nothing.
- Zoe.
She's sedated, right? How bad can it be? I'm not your friend.
Or your daughter.
Well, not really.
But I I'll listen if you have something to say.
- Sit down.
- No.
Please.
I've thought about you every day for twenty years.
I wondered where you were, who you were.
My mind would race and race How did you even find me? The internet.
Selfies.
Your nametag thing, I could read it.
I tried with you, with your father, we're we were a mess.
I did terrible things.
But I've changed, Zoe.
I promise.
I don't have any money.
No.
No, sweetness, no.
I don't want money.
I'm sick.
They don't know what it is.
But if it turns out to be genetic, I thought you should know.
You deserve that much.
So you're just looking out for me.
I wanted to see you.
I needed to see you.
That's the truth.
If that's selfish, then I'm so sorry, Zoe.
I'm so, so very, very sorry I'm so sorry, Zoe.
The X-ray says I'm totally healed, so now I just want to rip this thing off.
That thing's actually screwed into your leg, man, so I'd leave that up to the professionals.
An hour before Ortho can take you, then you'll be free.
Well, can we go see Patti? It's not actually a private room, dude, plus the little old lady might object, so Actually, I think I can do something about that.
PJ! Patient call on five! Ms.
Bonner, today is your lucky day, we're gonna go on a nice long ride.
We'll maybe get some lunch, get your hair done, - get your nails done.
Whaddaya say? - Hi.
- My man.
- Spoke with my charge nurse.
She's going to leave you guys alone.
No interruptions for 48 minutes.
Check out my "sexy times" playlist.
So, what, a little Buble? Maybe some Kenny G.
Really? Is that my vibe, man? Hey, don't you have another patient, or piece of equipment to move? If only your father could see you now.
OK, place the heart back down gently And look at that.
That is a thing of beauty.
Pressure's coming back up, heart rate's coming down nicely.
OK, now let's do our part to help the police catch a baddie.
Forceps.
I'm gonna get you.

During the massage.
I pressed too hard, didn't even know it happened.
OK, fish taco lady.
Abdo blood work, urinalysis, beta HCG, cardiac enzyme, ultrasound and ECG all came back clear as a bell.
Also girlfriend has started to hurl.
Are we still thinking - myocardial infarction? - Nah, we're thinking tacos.
Three more charts.

You said You knew you were sick, but you didn't know what it was.
No, no, that's not what I wasn't being clear, I guess.
I I've known for a while.
- What kind of transplant? - Bone marrow.
Like, from a relative.
And that's why you're here.
No, of course not.
Zoe, wait! Zoe, I had no idea Wait! - We weren't doing anything! - Say goodbye to your friend.
Come on.
His friend has a name.
- How did you know I was here? - I asked the charge nurse.
- Her name is Patti! - Well, Patti, say goodbye to my son, because when his leg is better, you will not see him again.
I'm sorry, OK? You promised me you weren't going to see this girl again You promised him? Sir, this is my fault.
- Excuse us.
- He's just a kid, - they're just kids, give them a break.
- No! Yes, - he's just a kid, but he needs guidance.
- Dad! And I am his father and I need you to get out of our way.
Man, that's just Tommy's up against it, man.
Do me a favour, piss off.
- I've been looking for you.
- So it's over? It's over.
He's stable, he's in the ICU.
That's that's something.
I just assumed, I kept hearing calls for blood, - and I was up there - Kid's got nine lives.
He went into V-tach three times on the table, - just kept coming back.
- Well, he got lucky.
Lucky? Dad, you cut him open in trauma, you massaged his heart.
I just spent four hours in surgery! That wasn't luck, that was us.
I was panicking, Mel.
I swear, I didn't know what I was doing That's what it felt like, maybe, in the moment I put a hole in his heart So what, we fixed it.
That patient should be dead.
He got lucky.
He had you, he had Guerra.
Just a second.
Dad - Hey, Melissa.
How you doin'? - That's not charming, OK? So you know.
You calling me Melissa.
I told you that's what my mother calls me, and if you knew how I felt about her, you wouldn't Well, I think it's a beautiful name and you should take it back.
You want a is this juice? Is it communal or I don't know, I don't drink juice.
- It's good for you.
- Too much sugar.
Nature's candy.
Peter, I just spent four hours in surgery.
I don't have the energy for this, whatever this is.
That's fine.
I'm sorry, what are we talking about? - I'm not going to sleep with you.
- Alright.
No rebound sex, no palate cleansing, none of the above.
So you can stop with the whole, you know, the wolf thing.
Kanaskie's gonna kill me.
I'm supposed to be in ICU doing a room turnover.
Severe aplastic anemia.
The mortality rate in the absence of a bone marrow transplant is over 80%.
I'm just giving you the facts, OK? OK.
Best odds of a match are from a sibling.
Next best a child.
Here's how it works.
You get tested to see if you're a match.
If you are, they would stick a needle into your hip, through your bone.
Is that dangerous? Not usually.
They give you a general anesthetic.
Then they would pull out your bone marrow, a lot of it, couple quarts.
They would process it, and then give it to your to Leona.
Imena.
We're huddling up in the boardroom right now, and I was hoping you could find the time to come up and make your case in person.
- My case.
- We're with you, Allen.
Some of us just want to hear you say you want it.
Give them confidence.
Excuse me.
- First of all, I was outta line.
- So was I.
I shouldn't have yelled.
You know, I just get into the OR, and I get a bit keyed up, I'm working on that.
Second of all, and this is what I called you down here to tell you.
- Don't worry about it.
- Sam, I put my finger Just don't worry about it, y'know.
Here's what I know.
It's not up to me.
Alright? Patient lives or dies, I don't know who it's up to, Allen, but it isn't me, you understand what I'm saying? You do what you can.
You say a prayer, and you cut.
That's the job.
Alright, look, I gotta go.
You done good today, my friend.
Tomorrow, who the hell knows? Look at you, you're almost back to normal.
You'll have to work extra hard, - get that leg in shape.
- Tommy.
Hey, Tommy, man.
- Yo, I just want to say - Do I have to report you? Do whatever the hell you want.
Tommy, I want to say I'm sorry, man, I know Patti's upset and OK, that's enough.
- I'm talking to your son.
- No, you're not.
Can we go, Dad? Look at you, man, do you even know what you're doing to him? - Why don't you tell me? - You're shoving things down his throat, - look at you - No, he's not, can we go? He doesn't know what he wants, he's too busy thinking about what you want, and what you need.
That girl could be the love of his life - That girl has been in jail! - You don't know her, you don't know him - Oh, and you do? - You're blind, you are completely blind! - You couldn't - Shut up and leave my dad alone! You're the one who doesn't understand, OK, you just pushed me around for a day.
So just just go, OK? You came back.
I'm glad.
Zoe, you have to believe me.
It was a misunderstanding, I'm sorry.
I thought I told you.
The sedatives, I don't know I'm going to get tested.
If I'm a match, I'll do the transplant.
Truth is I'd do it for anyone.
I'd do it for a total stranger.
In return, don't come near me, don't talk to me ever again.
That's the deal.
OK? Yes or no.
Yes.
Zoe.
- Griffin.
- Oh.

- What'd you think of those? - Outstanding.
- Spent a lot of money on them.
You'll have to get them cleaned.

Someone did throw up on them, though.
OK.
- OK, well.
Have a good night, Frank.
- Yeah, you too.
- You know, you surprised me today, Allen.
- I surprised myself.
- I didn't think you could do it.
- That makes two of us.

- Oh, what about it? - You didn't take it.
Yeah, no.
Well, Hail Caesar.
For turning down the crown.
Thoracotomy.
Lotta blood with one of those? An unbelievable amount of blood.
I mean, honest to God, Frank, you'd never think that there was so much blood in a human body.
- (chuckling) - It was something.
It really was a sight to see.
You know, I don't know what happened, but somewhere along the line, you got the wrong impression.
Yeah? - I don't want to sleep with you either.
- Is that right? Could not be less interested.
You look good, by the way.
- So why are you still flirting? - I'm not flirting.
You're flirting right now.
You can't help yourself.
We'd be terrible together.
You're exactly what I don't need right now.
You know what I think it is? You know you can't control me.
Really.
You're an addict.
You have to be in control, of everything, all the time.
- God, you have no idea - Including this conversation.
How about this.
Let's go for a coffee.
Or tea, let's go for tea.
A nice cup of tea.
And you can tell me about your day.
Your surgery.
