Mr.
Garland has pneumonia with hypoxia.
You need IV antibiotics.
I need to be with my family for Thanksgiving.
They can come and visit you here.
- How was the mock code? - Fine.
- So Romano humiliated you? - I looked like an idiot.
He does that to everyone.
Or maybe I just don't get it.
You'll catch on.
It just takes a little time.
Stay up there, turkey.
Come on.
- Son of a bitch.
- Better call the coroner on that one.
The damn night shift was supposed to do this.
- I'm just in charge of the potluck.
- Well, my yams are in the lounge.

No, there's a sandwich in the fridge.
And don't answer the door until I get home.
All right.
See you soon.
- Everything okay? - I had to leave Alex home for the day.
- He'll be all right.

Most years I work.
That's Lily's.

Hey, Frank.
What's up with the stupid parade? Put the game on.
Kickoff isn't till 12:30.
My brother-in-law is marching with the Brundy County Sheriff's Posse.
Oh, yeah, what's that? Some sort of clan? - Morris, what do you think you're doing? - Picking up a patient.
You just skipped over bloody diarrhea for eye pain.
- Smile! - Frank.
Sorry, I didn't think this old thing would work.
It was in last year's box.
Couple of shots left.

No way.
I'm on all day as a med student.
I only work nursing shifts on weekends.
I can let you off your rotation at 5 so you can take a nap.
- Can you take one for the team? - No.
Fine.
Only if you can't find anybody else.

So you're not using the eye drops? My nephew gave me an herbal medicine.
What, some sort of homeopathic crap? - Morris, come on, man.
Trauma's here.

On the phone to his doctor when we pulled up.
Drives a Bentley.
Nice.
Okay, prime the rapid infuser.
Come on.
Let's go.
Here we go.
On my count.
How do we tell pelvic bleeding from intra-abdominal? - CT scan.
- If the patient's unstable? Ultrasound? No, suprapubic mini-lap and DPL.
Which you can assist on.
Pupils equal and reactive.
- We got some sewing for you too.
- Can you two handle this? - Oh, I should hope so.

- Frank, where are the nurses? - With patients.
I need a chaperone.
Sam, help me with a pelvic? - After I hang blood.
- Can we bring a few patients back? Eventually.
I've done solo pelvics.
I could help, if you'd like.
- That's okay.
Thanks.
- No, we are boarding five ICU players and it's total gridlock.
I'll give you an hour.
Mr.
Garland, looks like you might be with us for a while.
Not a problem.
- What's that? - Turducken.
What? It's a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey.
- Want a taste? - Maybe later.
Sorry.
No, no, it wasn't you.
Just a cramp.
There's a little bit more bleeding than I expected.
And the cervix is open.
Meaning? With the cervix open, you can't maintain a pregnancy.
I'm sorry.
I had a feeling.
I woke up, and something Something was strange.
We've been trying to get pregnant For how long? Loren? Loren? Damn it.
- Can I help you? - This is Abby.
Who's at Admit? - Just me and the food.
- Well, my patient's bleeding out.
I'll see who I can rustle up.
Could use a little help here! - Systolic's 110 after two units.
- Spontaneous eye movements.
- Mr.
Westbrook? - Where am I? You' re at County General.
You got clipped by a tow truck.
Try not to move your leg.
- What do you think you're doing? - Calling my lawyer.
- I'd rather not be treated here.
- May have internal bleeding.
- I'll take my chances.
- Your phone interferes with our equipment.
- Hello.
It's Morgan Westbrook- - Hey, I said no cell phones! Hello, Mr.
Westbrook.
I'm Robert Romano, chief of Emergency Services.
I just got off the phone with our CEO, Peter Fenwick.
- Oh, Peter was in my class at Wharton.
- Yeah, so I heard.
I think your employees need a lesson in customer service.
This one stole my phone.
Well, he's not long for this hospital.
We're taking him up to CT.
Great.
After a few tests, we'll transfer.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
You are in excellent hands with Dr.
Corday.
Believe me, I envy you.
Hey.
Come here.
That guy is the biggest real estate developer in Chicago.
- More like the biggest prick.
- When you get a VIP, sometimes- You treat everybody the same.
- He's not stable.
- If he has no organ injuries, I say he is.
You're making a mistake.
Could have ongoing hemorrhage.
My only mistake was to allow you to practice medicine.
You'll compromise patient care to suck up to some rich guy? We will determine if he's able to be transferred- I'm not signing any transfer papers.
You don't have to.
You're no longer on the case.
Great.
My name won't be on your malpractice suit when he dies.
As far as I'm concerned, you don't work here.
- Right.
- No, I'm serious, Pratt.
You just pissed me off for the last time.
Second liter's in.
Pressure's 100/60.
Hey, Loren.
Gave us a little scare.
You passed out from blood loss.
That doesn't sound good.
There can be retained tissue that keeps bleeding.
- Hemoglobin's 9.
4.
- Okay, type and cross for two.
- How do you stop that? - With a D and C.
We clean things out, and then you're back to normal.
Abby.
- Let's get you a fresh gown.
- I'll be right back.
There is no retained tissue.
She has multiple uterine fibroids.
It won't be as simple as a D and C.
You should be careful what you say.
- Most of the time, it's retained- - Not in her case.
Transfuse two units and call GYN.
We have to get this bleeding to stop.
Next time, wear oven mitts when you take out the turkey, okay? Oh, there.
Hey, Frank, what's the score? First quarter, 0-0.
Oh, you're back from the scan? Bilateral pubic rami fractures and a shattered acetabulum.
- Ouch.
- We got Todd Corbett on standby at the Mayo Clinic.
Hey, you think I'll be able to run the marathon next October? I'd say there's a good chance.
That guy could put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
Be right there.
What part of "you're off the case" don't you understand? Looking out for the patient's best interests.
Did you send off another CBC? - Keep it up, Pratt.
- What, another letter in my file? We're meeting with Weaver and Anspaugh.
- On Thanksgiving? - That's right.
Well, I guess it saves you from spending it alone.
- Did you call Psych about your bug guy? - No, he really has scabies.
My asthma girl's worse.
Call RT for heliox.
Lewis, get coverage for Pratt's shifts starting tomorrow.
Complex laceration? I repaired the extensor tendon with a figure of eight.
- Looks nice.
- Very tidy.
Abby, where's the abductor pollicis brevis insert? - You know its innervation? - Smile! My patient needs blood.
Put your dirty clothes in the hamper.
Check your sugar? Timoptic, one drop two times a day.
What about the other stuff? You don't need it.
It's illegal.
Just say no.
- Just say no to what? - Altar boys.
Look at this rack.
- Do I have to? - We gotta treat patients in Triage again.
- Meet them and street them.
- Not so fast, Luka.
Couple of problems in the hall.
Jeffries spiked to 104.
Tylenol, blood cultures and a gram of cefotetan.
When can he go up? - Fifth in line for Med-Surg.
- Mrs.
Paulson's now altered.
- Two tele admits in front of her.
- How are you doing, ma'am? Thirty cc's of lactulose and draw an ammonia level.
And Mr.
Garland's BP is down to 90 systolic.
Start dopamine at five mics.
- Sorry for the delay, sir.
- That's okay.
I like to people-watch.
- Can you help us at Triage? - No.
- Why not? - You gave me an hour's worth of orders.
This is ridiculous.
No beds, no staff and we're doing the work of the entire hospital.
Yep, welcome to my world.
I need hard restraints for Mr.
Garland.
- Garland? He's a pussycat.
- The kind that lock.
Have you ever had any problems with general anesthesia? Hepatitis? No, they check my liver enzymes on the triple cocktail.
I need you to sign a consent form for exploratory surgery and a possible hysterectomy.
- Hysterectomy? - Only as a last resort.
Nobody said anything about a hysterectomy.
It may be our only option if we can't control the bleeding.
No.
I wanna have kids.
- I appreciate that.
- Dr.
Coburn, do you have a minute? Hang two more units and check another hemoglobin.
Why do a hysterectomy for fibroids? - It might save her life.
- There are other options.
I don't justify my approach to a nurse.
- I'm a fourth-year med student.
- We consent for all contingencies.
Are you even going to attempt embolization? That would take hours.
Okay, I'm not sure I'm getting your point.
She's bleeding out.
She's on her fourth unit, not stable for embolization.
And maybe she would be if she wasn't HIV-positive? - What are you accusing me of? - Let me settle this catfight.
Abby, you're wrong.
I'm discussing uterus-sparing procedures.
- On an HIV-positive woman? - Thank you, I can handle this.
- She wants to have a baby.
- Maybe this is God saying, "Bad idea.
" With a low viral load, transmission's less than 3 percent.
And the kid'll be motherless by age 10.
I'll attempt a myomectomy, but I can't make any promises.
- Rotator-cuff tear.
- I thought it was a game of touch football.
My sister-in-law doesn't like to lose.
- Happy Thanksgiving, Dr.
Lewis.

Thank you.
Don't thank me.
Thank some dead guy from Mercy.

Hands inside the car, man.
I appreciate everything you've done, Dr.
Romano.
- My pleasure.
- You coming up to the copter? I'd like to, but as you can see, we are completely swamped.
- I don't know how you do it, Robert.
- I guess it's just my calling.
Thanks a lot.
Take care.
Have a good flight.
Thank you.
Hold that elevator.
So you still think there's a chance? - Yeah, I do.

- They're busy.
Hey, Indira, take that up to the helipad.

Here is your report: 72-year-old pneumonia patient on cefotaxime five mics of dopamine and six liters of O2.
- He might leave AMA.
- What are you doing? Take it easy.
He's a troublemaker.
- This is really stupid.
- You have more nurses.
We can't take extra patients.
Why not? We do it all the time.
Now you can't send him back.
Are you coming? Dr.
Romano? Here, take it.
- Patient forgot his watch.

Get your ass inside, sit down at Admit and do not move until I come get you.
The strap is caught.

Just call the nursing supervisor.

What are you doing? - He needs a central line.
- Shouldn't an Attending be here? Yep.
See anyone around? - The liver is wrapped, still bleeding.
- Purse string it with 2-0.
- How do you know this? - I used to be a surgical tech.
- Oh, my, what have we here? - Liver lac.
- Hemostasis with Vicryl mesh.
- Excellent.
Well, I've got an open OR.
Let's get him upstairs.
- Looks like I'll eat cold turkey.
- What time is it? - Almost 5.
- Oh, man.
- Hey, you got a bolt cutter? - Not up here, but I'll get you one.
You're lucky, Mr.
Garland.
- Your burns are only minor.
- I liked it better downstairs.
Only had pneumonia downstairs.
Charged to 30 and clear.
- Asystole.
- Resuming compressions.
- How long's it been? - Thirty-five minutes.
Okay, that's it.
Time of death: 17:09.
Close the thoracotomy, find the family.
His wife's in surgery.
- Hey, what did Vascular say? - They never came down.
There you go.
Leave 3 centimeters to cover the defect, one intracranial.
- Stent is in place.
- What did I tell you? - To do the right thing.
- No.
I want- Hey, look at this.
Motor function in the upper extremity.
Blood flow is restored to the brain.
Everything's good, Mel.
Where's Dr.
Lewis? Clear.
- Sinus tach.
- Got a pulse.
Try for a pressure.
- Reina? Open your eyes.
- You think she'll wake up? - I hope so.
- We still need an Attending.
- Which patient? - The flight nurse guy.
- Chuck? - What? Abby? Occult splenic injury.
Slow leak, took him an hour to drop his pressure.
He's intubated with a central line.
Who did this? Sign here, we can say you did.
- It was either that or let him die.
- This the spleen for the OR? - Yup.
- It's Chuck.
- What, your ex-husband? - Yeah.
- Do you want to observe? - I can't, but I can bring him up.
Last crit was 26.
He's type and crossed for another four.
- BP's 110/70 after two units.
- Abby, thank you.
Is it over? Did he drop his pressure again? Any additional transfusions? - Okay, good.
Thanks.
- Chuck? He's doing well.
They're closing.
- And we're opening to Trauma.
- What? Sent nine to the OR, five to Telemetry four to Med-Surg, and I have monitored beds.
Too bad it takes a disaster to whip this place into shape.
- Ruptured globe's going up to surgery.
- Okay, good.
Abby.
The fibroids involved the uterine artery.
I attempted a myomectomy, but there was no way.
- You did a hysterectomy? - Yeah.
She's stable now.
Heard you had your hands full down here.
Good night.
- Hey, can I sign out? - What? - You're a night-shift nurse.
- Not until 7.
- Well, it's a quarter till.
- I don't believe this.
- I wrote these orders six hours ago.
- Hey, Mom.
- Where's Helene? - She couldn't pull in.
Are those body bags out there? Did you see the crash? Well, looks like home cooking's out of the question.
You wanna go to Ike's? - Ike's? - It's across the street.
We're going out.
You're still coming, right? - I don't think so.
- Why not? - Alex, we'll be fine on our own.
- Mom, you said I could bring a friend.
Besides, it's boring if it's just us.
You're welcome to join us.
- No, I don't have to.
- No.
Come on.
Are you ready? - Yeah, last stitch.
- Where is Romano? - Haven't seen him.
I need to get this- - Let the nurses handle it.
Come on.
Why in God's name would he insist on meeting tonight? - I really couldn't say.
- Time for our little sit-down.
- I'm a little tied up in here.
- Where is Robert? - I thought he was up in the OR.
- I thought he was down here.
- Just fill me in later.
- Come along, Dr.
Pratt.
Best if we deal with this right now.
Romano sent me a file of your disciplinary letters.
Sometimes we don't see eye to eye.
Well, there's enough documentation here to merit a suspension, I guarantee you that.
Offending patients, contradicting consultants refusing to comply with Attending's treatment plans.
Do you care to respond? - Look, I may have been out of line- - Oh, baloney.
- Excuse me? - I give no credence to these allegations.
If any of this were true, I'd get complaints from other Attendings.
And obviously, Robert doesn't care enough to even show up.
I saw you in action today.
You're an excellent physician.
Thank you.
Give this to Romano when you see him.
- Can I have French toast? - No.
Why not? It says all-day breakfast.
Because it's Thanksgiving.
You're having turkey.
Would you rather have French toast or turkey? I don't like French toast.
Why not? You like pancakes.
- Yeah.
- So- So does my mom.
You guys can have pancakes, I'll have French toast and then we can share some turkey sausage.
Alex.
- Why would you do that? - Payback.
I'm sorry I didn't get home in time to cook you Thanksgiving dinner.
Excuse me.
I'll wash up.
Why did you invite him? Because he's my friend.
You shouldn't have friends who are over 30.
- Why not? - Because you're a kid.
So? I like him.
He's cool.
- I know what you're trying.
- I'm not.
And I'd rather not go out with someone right now, okay? You're probably not his type.
Besides, he's my friend, not yours.
Hello, Mrs.
Marshall.
I'm back.
- The nurse never came with my medicine.
- That's okay.
I'm your nurse now.
I thought you were my doctor.
That was this morning.
Now I'm your nurse.
- This is a very strange hospital.
- Tell me about it.
Abby, I'm about to suture an arm lac.
-5-0 nylon.
- I thought so.
How much angulation is acceptable on a fifth-metacarpal fracture? More than 60 degrees needs reduction.
Do you know who gets the Blue Beacon admissions? Sessa, beeper number 2956.
Never received? No way.
I brought that down myself.
Look, I looked in the records room, and it's not there.
Yeah, well, happy Thanksgiving to you too, jagoff.
- Hey, did Detroit win? - I have no freaking idea.
- What about Dallas? - Don't make me come over and smack you.
One for Dr.
Pratt.
Hey, Morris.
What have you been doing all day? Romano told me to wait here.
So you just sat on your ass through a mass casualty? - Yeah.
- Your shift's over, man.
Go home.
I can't.
Are those from Christmas? - Last year? - The year before.
Dr.
Greene.
- Which one's Dr.
Greene? - I'm gonna need a massive amount of caffeine to make it to sunrise.
Here you go, Abby.
Shred it.
Look at this one.
That's definitely 2001.
The Secret Santa party.
- Anybody hear from Carter? - He sent a postcard about a month ago.
- You should put that up in the lounge.
- How's he doing? I don't know.
What are you thinking about? Nothing.
Come back to bed.
Hey.
Hey.
I should fake my death more often.
I knew it.
What? That we'd end up together tonight.
This your idea of a hot date? Yeah, yeah.
It's dark.
All the nurses are busy.
You just had your spleen removed.
Yeah.
You know what they say: When you lose an organ, the other ones get stronger.
Hey.
What are you still doing here? Waiting on a few labs.
I hate to pass on patients when it's busy.
That will change.
Today was pretty amazing.
I've never seen anything like it.
I didn't think we could handle it, but we did.
We did really well.
We saved lives.
It was like a roller coaster.
I've always hated roller coasters, but - I sort of can't wait for the next ride.
- As long as it's not in the next 12 hours.
You drink coffee? I'm not in the club.
I got an extra.
Thanks.
