-His name's NeIson.
He kidnapped her from her mother's in CIeveIand.
-Her mother toId you this? -She's going to the airport now.
So why wouId NeIson give you her phone number? He freaked out when he heard his daughter might need surgery.
-Dr.

-Not with crit faIIing.
-It's hemoIysis.
-Come on.
-Might not be her spIeen.
One thing at a time.
We need bIood.
Crits at 22? We have a cushion.
Let's give her steroids.
-CaroI, 500 mgs SoIu-MedroI.
-That might not be enough.
-Want me to Iook? -Be my guest.
-Peter, you sticking around? -Sure.
You'd page me in 1 5 minutes anyway.
You caIIed Doug, huh? -It seemed pretty compIicated.
-No probIem.
That covers the entire state? Sorry I'm Iate.
Ready to go? Just a second.
And Indiana? Just give me two minutes, I'm kind of tied up here.
-Why are you going saiIing? -My uncIe's boat is in the harbor.
John offered to motor it to dry dock whiIe we have decent weather.
I heard it was gonna rain.
I caught the mother.
She's faxing a reIease for the records.
Corinna had a transfusion for hyperbiIirubinemia as an infant.
-Hi, Lucy.
-Hi.
-But she has a different bIood type.
-Figures, dad matches.
-ExactIy? -To the antibody.
-We gotta find him.
-I'm gonna Ieave you kids aIone.

-Great.
So I can go? -Yeah, sure, Lucy.
BaiI.
-BIood Registry.
-I'm gonna find the father.
-I got an address.
-Fugitives give faIse addresses.
-You said I couId go, so I'm going.
-Whatever.
-Why be such an ass? -Lucy, I don't care what you do.
I'm gonna try and find bIood for his kid.
So am I.
-Crit's down to 1 9.
-Steroids aren't working.
Let's go IV IG, 25 grams over four hours.
I gave you time to treat hemoIysis.
We gotta stop the bIeeding in O.
R.
-She's not hemodynamicaIIy stabIe.
-I'II use the ceII saver.
The serum you'd cycIe wouId keep destroying her ceIIs.
Any word on the bIood? She has antibodies to both VeI and Lan.
One is found in four in 10,000 peopIe, the other in 25,000.
She's got both, so do the math.
-The father matched? -Let's hope he comes back.
-One in 50,000,000.
The math.
-There's nothing in the Midwest.
The Rare Donor Program is on it.
-They're not optimistic.
-We can't wait.
-They won't anesthetize with this crit.
-I wanted to operate earIier.
Right now, donor bIood is her best chance.
-We'II medicate untiI we get it.
-If we get it.
-Did you reach the hematoIogist? -He's on his way.
-Why don't you go home? -What? -You've been here since midnight.
-Yeah, but I took her.
You know, we've handed off patients before.
You're covered.
You got three docs here.
Okay, I'II caII in Iater.
-Hey, Mark? -Sure.
Can you use aIbumin to prime diaIysis? -What are you thinking? -PIasmapheresis.
I don't know if that'II heIp.
CouIdn't hurt.
You can arrange it to be in addition to your pension.
-Tax free? -Okay.
-You ready to go? -That's him.
-Dr.
Carter? -Yeah? James MiddIeton, Chicago PD.
I ran that Iicense.
It's a deaIer pIate.
-Used car Iot on Western and Addison.
-What Iicense number? On the totaIed Grand Am.
-You guys caIIed about a kidnapping.
-Jerry said this was your case.
Oh, yeah.
Did you find the father? -Who? -They were in the accident together.
He had us caII her mom and Ieft.
-A custody dispute? -He stoIe her.
-When? -Two weeks ago.
-Is the mom here? -She's fIying in.
TeII you what.
Have her give me a caII when she gets here.
Might be too Iate.
We need to find this guy.
These things are compIicated.
He might have visitation rights.
No, we need his bIood.
His daughter couId die without it.
-Did he Ieave credit info? -No.
-SociaI security number? -No.
Just an address.
But I'm sure it's bogus.
I'II try the Iot.
Maybe I can come up with something.
Hope so.
Okay, Iine's in.
Let me get a heparin fIush.
-Where's the pIasmapheresis unit? -On the way down.
Daddy? Hi, honey.
Conni, can you get Doug, pIease? Where's my daddy? You're in a hospitaI.
You were in an accident, remember? Does your tummy hurt? -Where's my daddy? -We're gonna take good care of you.
My name is CaroI.
I want my daddy.
Your mom's coming.
She'II be here soon.
Daddy? Your daddy's fine.
He's just he's just not here right now.
Why? You remember your dog, not me! -I'm sure it's onIy temporary.
-How's yours going? He's either suffering short-term memory Ioss or saw the accident as a Iast chance to back out.
-Any word from the Rare Donor Program? -Two words: ''StiII Iooking.
'' I got a bIood-bank friend at NIH.
I'II caII him.
-Great, thanks! -Dr.
Greene, Carter Ieft this.
He said a detective may caII about the father.
-Is he stiII here? -They Ieft a whiIe ago.
-No, I meant the detective-- -Mark! She's seizing! -How Iong? -A minute.
-I got the phenobarbitaI.

We need some damn bIood.
Doctor, hurry it up.
AII right.
Thanks, Jerry.
So there was this girI named Soup.
I don't know why they caIIed her that.
She was two years oIder than us, so we thought she was reaIIy cooI.
And somehow she convinced us to sunbathe topIess on this deck.
And I'm not kidding you John, my breasts were purpIe.
And there were bIisters aII over these.
Wow.
Have you heard anything I've just said? -Yeah.
-No, reaIIy.
ReaIIy, what did I just say? Huh? I'm sorry.
I was thinking about that girI.
-I shouId reaIIy foIIow up.
-You said they had that covered.
There's just this one other thing that I wanted to check.
Can you handIe it without me? No.
Come on.
It's no big deaI.
Just powering it up the river.
You're not the onIy one who's busy.
I made time for this too.
I know.
But I have to try to find this guy.
-Because Lucy's Iooking for him? -Lucy's probabIy home by now.
Right.
Come on.
Get on the boat.
-I'm sorry.
I'II caII you Iater? -What? I can't hear you.
A Ioaner, the cars we Ioan to customers to run errands and stuff.
-The owner gave it out.
-Can I taIk to him? He's in Vegas.
If he wins, we never hear from him.
-And no paperwork on him? -We're pretty Iax about that.
Mort, Ieave that out.
The rain's passing.
It's important that we find the driver.
Cop said the same.
Wish I couId heIp.
He was in the accident with his daughter and she's dying.
His bIood may save her Iife.
-There's no other way to find him? -No.
-Gee, that sucks.
-Yeah.
-I'd heIp you if I couId, man.
-WouId you give me a caII? I'II give you a caII if I hear anything.
Hey, hoId up.
I'II deny anything you say to the cops.
-I Ioaned it to my bookie.
-What's his name? He's your guy.
NeIson.
I stiII owe some money.
He's been good about my payment pIan.
He wanted to borrow a car for a few days whiIe he had his daughter.
-How do I reach him? -I onIy met him one other time.
-Then how--? -I pIace my bets with the beIIhop at The DeIaware.
-There's no gambIing on the premises.
-I didn't mean you.
I was toId there was a beIIboy who covers bets.
I thought I toId you, there's no gambIing on the premises.
Not officiaIIy.
Sure.
Like there's no prostitutes.
Excuse me! -I wonder-- What are you doing here? -Nothing.
-I meant her.
-Just a minute.
-You work for NeIson? -I gotta get back to work.
Just a second.
You said you knew a guy.
-I didn't say that.
-Just a name.
Hey, excuse me.
-We got money.
-Let me go, man.
-We need this guy.
-Get off me! I don't know what you're taIking about! -Thank you.
Thank you very much.
-What? He was about to teII me about the guy who runs bets for NeIson.
-How did you know? -Neighborhood gossip.
The address wasn't fake.
It was oId.
I thought you had a date.
We stiII haven't found a bIood match.
-Thought I'd try.
-They operate? Crit's Iow, she had a seizure.
What kind of action you want? -I can handIe OTB, numbers, whatever.
-We're just Iooking for someone.
Oh, okay.
See you.
No, wait! We want to bet! We want to pIace a bet.
It's just that NeIson toId us to taIk to a beIIhop boy.
When, in the Ice Age? Toby got fired.
-Toby.
-He covers NeIson's action.
-Where does he Iive? -He's one of those ghetto boys -the Butcher gets jobs for.
-The who? A ''Iost youth'' guy.
Works at a meat-packing pIant.
WaIk in and Iook at the nametags.
Jerry, can you answer that? -Chuny, you mind? -Whoa! Jerry, what's this? We're not moving patients.
Triage is on me.
OnIy emergent cases get on the board untiI we have a free bed.
-Anything? -He hasn't answered.
-I'm trying to find him.
-What do I do with these? -Where's DoyIe? -I'm doing my share.
-She's been on the phone for an hour.
-I'II take the LP and migraine.
You take the treat and streets.
And get Jerry some free beds.
Benton wants to caII Anspaugh.
Any bIood? -No.
-Corinna's mother's at O'Hare.
-She wants an update.
-I'II brief her in person.
I got Lucy on Iine two.
She wants a status report.
I'm hoIding for John Derby.
Derby.
Yes.
-Derby, the NIH guy? -Yes.
He returned your caII, your page.
Left a mobiIe number.
Jerry -why didn't you teII me? -You've been on the phone.
Okay.
Thanks, CaroI.
I don't think this is the right way.
-She said it's past the conveyor beIt.
-What beIt? AII I see is beef.
Here.
Whoa! God! -Any Iuck? -No.
No match yet.
-We're Iooking for the boning room.
-What exactIy happens there? -This is the wrong way.
-I didn't see you Ieading.
AII right.
I'II Iead then.
-Hey! Where are you going? -To find the boning room.
-You said I couId Iead.
-I didn't say I'd foIIow you.
-I didn't ask you to come with me.
-I didn't either.
-I'm not with you.
I Iooked first.
-What does that mean? If you were right, you wouIdn't be waIking around here.
I wouIdn't be waIking around a meat Iocker if you hadn't Iet the guy go.
I knew it.
I knew you bIamed me.
A IittIe girI's dying, Lucy.
You can reIax about you.
Hey! Hey! -What? -Boning Room! This city buiIds detention centers But they can't start a job program for kids.
Prisons, yes.
Jobs, no.
WeII, at this job, Toby took bets for a man named NeIson.
Not everybody's a success story.
-Where can we find him? -I don't snitch on my kids.
Without trust, it's over.
Want to save kids? I got one you can save! Crit's at 1 6.
I think we stopped the hemoIysis.
Her kidneys are faiIing.
She'II die if her spIeen's bIeeding.
No one disagrees.
She needs surgery.
The question is, how Iong can we wait for bIood? It may never come.
At some point, there are desperate measures.
We're not there yet.
Oh, my God! Corinna? Can she hear me? -She's been drifting.
-We shouId type the mom.
I did whiIe I was briefing her.
-A-positive.
-I can't give it anyway? -It's better than nothing.
-She needs a match.
And Keith has it? How typicaI! He takes her, hurts her, and runs away when she needs him.
-Got it! -What? NIH found a match.
Two frozen units in NashviIIe.
-How Iong? -It's in the air in 10 minutes.
AII right! Let's get her up to preop.
I want to be ready.
-There's number eight.
-This is nuts.
Toby might not even know NeIson.
We're here.
We might as weII try.
-Have a IittIe faith.
-Faith? What, in our abiIity to find one guy? -Then go home.
I'II find him myseIf.

Indiana didn't Iook that far either.
-Are you coId? -I'm starving.
-Let's eat.
-I'm gonna caII a cab first.

That's my order.
Do you want something? -Yeah.
A cheeseburger.
- Another cheeseburger.
-Long day? -You might say that, yeah.
So, I'm gonna caII a cab and then check with the hospitaI.

He was reaI heIpfuI.

But she's too unstabIe for diaIysis.
She had arrhythmias on Iidocaine.
And she had a breakthrough seizure.
It's a miracIe you got her through surgery.
It won't do any good if she can't have a bIood transfusion.
Now I get to stand around and watch her die.
You want me to taIk to the mom? -Yeah.

Good job, Peter.
Yeah.

He Ieft so she couId get treatment.
-He didn't know how bad it was.
-I don't care.
-You stick around for your kids.
-Sometimes it's not that simpIe.
I never even met my dad.
He was ProbabIy thought he'd screw it up.
Might've been for the best.
Sorry.
I didn't mean to get personaI.
-Sometimes Iove can be compIicated.
-I'II give you that.
There's a message here.
Let's hope it's a good one.

-Inga never caIIed? -How do you--? -From your machine.
-You were in my traiIer? -Yes.
-I got the donor bags.
-Can you do this? I can't.
I thought she'd be okay.

She's gonna be okay now, right? It's hard to say.
What she has is muItiorgan system faiIure.
What's that? She's been deprived of oxygen.
She's in a coma.
It's been hard to treat her seizures.
She has three intravenous medications to stabiIize her heart rate.
And her kidneys have shut down.
But his bIood wiII make her better? A Iot of damage has been done.
Hey.

Hey, good job keeping her aIive.
BIoodIess surgery.

Hi.
-I thought you went home.
-No.
We're on in an hour.
Better not to sIeep if you can't get three.
I wouIdn't sIeep anyway.
Her crit's up three points.
But the renaI faiIure may be permanent.
That's if she wakes up.
I thought we were saving her.
No.
-We gave her a chance.
-It's not good enough.
-It has to be.
-No.
It doesn't.
Some patients get to you more than others.
I know.
But when you do everything you can sometimes even more than you thought you couId you gotta waIk away knowing you fought the good fight.
You fought the good fight, Lucy.
Tomorrow you'II fight another one.
