ER s14e12 Episode Script

Believe the Unseen

"Your full reinstatement," Dr.
Lockhart, has yet to be determined.
You'll be allowed to work shifts on a probationary status until several contingencies have been met.
" "A minimum of two weekly " physician diversion group meetings.
Plus at least three AA meetings a week.
"Okay, understood.
" "Random urine tests " several times a month.
"Whatever it takes.
" "Under normal circumstances" this committee would require you to attend another 30 meetings in 30 days, before allowing you back.
"In addition to the 30" you've already attended.
But because you were so forthcoming, and volunteered to check yourself into a domestic detox facility, we've decided to make an exception.
Pratt also asked us to make some concessions on your behalf.
So effective immediately, you are cleared to return to work.
Thank you.
Thank you.
But I need a little more time.
My husband, Dr.
Kovac, and our son are in Croatia.
They've been there I just need to spend some time with them.
And I think I would be better for it when I come back to work.
We have no problem with that.
Pratt? It's fine by me.
I can always adjust the schedule.
- How much time do you think you need? - Couple weeks, maybe.
Since we won't be able to monitor you in Europe " you" understand we'll have to ask you to start over again when you return.
Sixty meetings, 60 days, diversion group.
Random urine tests.
Absolutely, agreed.
Thank you.
Jaspreet, I gotta pee.
I heard you got in late last night.
Where'd you end up going? Where'd you end up going? Some club called "Le Passage"? DJ was wicked.
What are you doing? I have to pay for hot water, you know.
Okay, no pronator drift.
Smalls, hi, I'm Dr.
Oh, another cute doctor.
Must be my lucky day.
She's been having trouble sleeping.
No past medical history, and exam was normal.
I haven't had a good night in weeks.
You have any belly or chest pains? This is all Marty's fault.
He's my husband.
He's the one that keeps waking me up.
I hear him calling me in the middle of the night.
So I don't quite follow.
He wakes you up while you're sleeping? Yes, every night.
Have you considered telling him to stop waking you up? It doesn't help.
Then I just dream about him.
Well, is he here? Maybe we can talk to him.
He's been dead for six years.
Don't worry, Mrs.
Smalls, we're gonna take good care of you.
I'm gonna get to the bottom of this.
Psych consult? Yeah, check the CBC, chem panel and UA in case she has hypercalcemia, okay? - And call Julia Dupree.
- The chaplain? She's pretty hot for a chaplain.
She's pretty hot period.
How's that working out? - I'm gonna go order these labs.
- Sam, you seen any attendings? - Oh, my God, please make it stop.
What the hell happened to you? Bad baba ganoush.
I need you to sign off on our CHF-er, and the board's getting pretty full.
And I need one too.
Why don't you go home? You look like ass.
Thank you.
I was home until Skye got sick with the flu.
Morris, are you sick? No, Frank, I got this IV because I'm feeling a little parched.
- I can't get sick, I got a date.
- Food poisoning, you can't catch that.
Gates, gyn has a bed, but they can't take your PID for two hours.
- That's what they said four hours ago.
- Don't get uppity, I just work here.
- Sam, what's with my chemo lady in 4? - Still waiting for Oncology.
Are we the only department working today? I need a coffee.
Pratt and Abby need some privacy for a few minutes.
- Abby's back? - She was in Croatia.
What are they doing? What's so private? If they wanted you to know, they would have invited you.
Where am I gonna get my coffee? Jumbo Mart.
In fact, you should get us all one.
Oh, yeah.
I'll take a large latte.
- Mm.
Black, regular, hold the cream.
- Get me a hot tea, will you? Large, no foam, per cent latte americano.
- What the hell's that, Frank? - Tell Bheru to fix Frank's regular.
- I don't drink coffee.
- All right.
If anyone needs me, I'll be at the Jumbo Mart.
Somebody help! - What happened? I heard some guy beating on her.
- I broke in and fought him off.
- All right, all right.
Get a gurney in here.
- What's her name? - Sally.
Okay, Sally, can you hear me? He hurt her bad this time.
I think her arm is broken.
Okay, what are people saying? Well, they think you've been in Croatia since Christmas.
That's it? I was sure the rumor train would been running.
Thank you.
Well, you know how it is.
One minute it's Thanksgiving, then all of a sudden it's next year.
People do their own thing.
Listen, thank you very much for your discretion, and And I'm sorry I had to burden you with this stuff.
It's not a burden, Abby.
It's management.
The only reason I know the whole story is because I'm your supervisor.
I gotta say it.
I thought we were friends.
Of course we're friends, Greg.
Then why wouldn't you come to me for help? You know, it didn't have to go like this.
Well, it turns out I'm not so great at asking for help.
Heh, heh.
Well Well, I'm here, okay? You do know that, right? Chuny and the nurses sent a condolence card for Luka's dad.
I told them I'd call when I got back.
And I just I hate this.
I'm so embarrassed and ashamed.
Well, you shouldn't be.
Really? I was a bad friend.
I was a bad doctor.
I was a bad wife.
- I was a bad mother.
- No.
We see bad mothers come through here all the time.
And you do not qualify.
We all have flaws, Abby, but how many of us actually work to fix them? Sorry to interrupt.
Victims from a building fire are en route.
All right, go ahead and prep the trauma rooms.
I'll be right there.
- Damn, terrible day for multiples.
- What's up? We're short-staffed.
Hey, I can work for a couple hours.
Really, I'm cool.
My flight's not till tomorrow.
Might even feel good.
Wow, your cousin, Neela, is truly gifted.
Do I look taller? I feel taller.
You know, my advice is cut and run.
Are you insane? Cut and run? I'm putting this on my blog.
Oh, God, that's just wrong.
If that's wrong, I don't wanna be right.
Surgeons are here.
- Hey, what's up, party people? - Hi, guys.
Neela, how's Jaspreet doing? She hasn't called me in a few days.
Jaspreet? She's doing just fine, buddy.
Trust me.
- Somebody call for a doctor? Hey, you.
- Hey, welcome back.
How was Croatia? - You know, European.
- Sorry for your loss.
- Harms, what's it look like? - Dexter Jackson, 11, building fire.
Burns to hands and chest, crush injuries from falling debris.
- Tachy to 160.
BP, 100.
- Dex, don't worry.
We're gonna get you fixed up.
Morris, to Trauma 1.
Grady, you go with him.
What we got here? Kayla Weeks, 7, smoke inhalation.
- Minor injuries, some wheezing, sats 92.
- Having trouble breathing? - Firefighter behind is pretty bad.
- Okay.
Get her set up on nebs, check a baseline chest.

- Jake Gleason, 28.
Floor gave way in the fire, 15-foot fall.
Burns to hands and face, spine injury.
- Jake, where you hurting at, man? - Back mostly.
- Sats 91.
- All right, let's get him in Trauma 2.
Hey, do me a favor.
Wiggle those toes for me.
Like that? I'm sorry, I know it's last minute, but they surprised me.
- Well, that was nice, right? - Yes, from a certain point of view one's big brother and his wife showing up unannounced is nice, yes.
- Not nice? - No Yes, it's very nice.
It's just that usually by dessert, they're telling me how worried they are.
Because, you know, I'm wasting my life away as a chaplain.
Well, if the shoe fits - Kidding.
What, are they not religious? - Hardcore Catholic.
He's a hedge-fund "millionaire " " so" it doesn't help that I'm a $35,000-a-year chaplain.
- Yeah, yeah.
- Are you scared to meet my family? Who, me? No, I would love to meet your family.
It's just "that " You know, I just don't know what time I'm gonna be done here.
Well, if you can, I could really use some backup.
All right, I'll let you know.
- How's she doing? - Out cold.
Sally? Sally? - Got a little ETOH going here, huh? - Yeah, don't light a match.
And it's not just alcohol.
All right, we still need a head scan.
Did the plain films come in yet? Uh-huh.
The CT will be ready for her in a few minutes.
I already paged Ortho.
- Is she gonna be okay? I think so.
They're always fighting over there, man.
The guy, he's a real prick.
It's a good thing you were close.
C- spine is clear.
How's her arm? Well, it's broken pretty bad, but it's fixable.
You get the finger traps ready when they take her to CT.
Should I wait here? That's fine.
Oh, your head's bleeding.
- Hey, don't worry about it.
- Well, we should look at it.
It's okay, we won't bite.
All right, let me take a look.
You wanna sit down here? It doesn't look too bad.
We can fix that up with a couple staples.
- Sam.
Car accident.
Head-on with a drunk driver.
I used to be a grade-school music teacher.
Now I do courses online.
It's kind of hard to scare the students that way, you see.
- Wait, wait, this is Ortho.
- Yeah, I start today.
I thought that was next week.
Dubenko hates me.
- Well, Dubenko's not on.
Crenshaw is.
- Yeah, great, he hates me more.
- Aah! Ohh! - Just a bit outside.
Okay? - Ow.
Look at you, you're early.
- Well, you know, first impressions.
- Dr.
Rasgotra, meet Doctors Ramsey.
- Hey.
- Craig.
- How's it going? Hi.
- And Pavelich.
- Hey, what's up? Heard great things about you.
What's that? This is Dr.
Zelinsky, a surgical intern.
You okay, man? You need a glass of water? - You look a little dry.
- No, I'm good.
Yeah, Harold was just leaving.
Good luck.
Hockey, I used to play a little at school.
Field not ice.
- Take a shot.
- I couldn't, it's been years.
- Come on.
- Come on, take a shot.
Let's see it.
Girl power, come on.
First albuterol's done.
You want continuous? No, sats are up to 97, and the wheezing's better.
Repeat treatment in half an hour.
Is that your brother in there? No, he's not my real brother, but he's nice to me so far.
- Are you guys foster kids? - Yeah.
Okay, you sit tight.
I'm gonna go check on him.
My name is Abby, this is Malik.
Let us know if you need anything.
- BP's up a little to 85.
- How's he doing? Not great, still taching away.
- Blood in the belly? - No free blood, but look at the liver.
Subscapular hematoma.
Films are back.
- How's Luka holding up? - You know, it's hard.
- My dad died when I was 19.
- At least, you're back in the States.
Always nice to come home after a long trip, huh? - Okay, C-spine looks clear.
- Nothing on the chest or pelvis.
- Kids' foster mom is here.
Hi, I'm Dr.
We were in the laundry room when the fire broke out.
Are they okay? Kayla has some smoke inhalation, she's gonna be fine.
Dexter's more serious.
He's got bleeding around his liver.
It's probably stupid's fault.
- You leave the oven on again? - Keisha, I told you, stop calling her that.
You got a phone? I need to get somebody to cover my shift.
Right there.
Dial 9 first.
- Pratt could use a hand in here.
- I'll go.
Solu-Medrol, 2.
4 grams over 15 minutes, then infuse at 430 milligrams per hour.
Somebody page Neurosurge.
Can you get central line going? - Good.
Nice to have you back.
We missed you.
How's Luka? He's good.
Sterile 6's, please.
Neurosurgery's on the way.
- Good.
If you're gonna have a funeral, Croatia's a good place to do it.
- How is he? - Fracture at T11.
T11, what's that mean? Well, it looks like you've got a fractured vertebrae with bruises of the spinal cord.
Will it get better? I'm not gonna be paralyzed, am I? It's just a little too early to tell right now.
Those kids I saved, are they okay? - So far, so good.
If that girl hadn't broken that window and screamed - " we" wouldn't know they were in there.
- Damn it! All right, go, just go, go.
- Okay, prep and drape, I'll be right back.
- All right.
Another 600 cc bolus.
- Hemoglobin's down to 12.
4, BP, 70.
- Type and cross two more units.
- See what you did, stupid? Keisha.
- I didn't leave the oven on.
- Liar, you know - Stop.
- Dexter's gonna die and it's your fault.
I hate you.
Kayla, wait.
Oh, my God, are you okay, honey? Okay, come here, sweetie.
Are you okay? It's not my fault.
I didn't leave the oven on.
I didn't.
How many fingers am I holding up? - Um, three? - Okay, what about here? No, sorry.
Can you follow my finger? Okay.
- How long have your eyes been like that? - I don't know.
You ever seen a doctor for it? No, I keep it a secret so people won't hate me.
Sweetheart, nobody hates you.
All my foster families do.
That's why I keep getting moved.
Listen to me, grownups can be really weird sometimes.
It may seem like they don't like "you " " but" that's probably because they're really "busy " " or" they're sad, or they're mad.
But I guarantee you, it's not about you.
You understand? And for what it's worth, I like you.
I left the oven on once, but I turned it off all the way this time.
I know I did.
Ortho's here.
- Hey, Mayday.
- Since when are you Ortho? This morning.
You guys mind if maybe we catch up later? I can see some films.
Here you go.
- Who are these guys? Orthopedic specialists, here to look at her arm.
What ligaments are disrupted in a perilunate dislocation? Scapholunate and the lunotriquetral interosseous ligament.
And? - Back from X-ray? - Never went, sats are dropping.
Down to 91.
- Tube him before he goes to CT.
- Grady, you're up.
Is he okay? He might have smoke damage to his lungs.
We're gonna help him breathe.
Suction please.
You know anything about Kayla's vision problems? - Vision problems? No.
Cricoid pressure.
She's only been with me for a couple of weeks.
That explains a lot.
She's clumsy.
You see the cords? - Yup.
Now why would they send me a disabled kid? They should know better that I can't handle that.
I'm a single foster mom, and I got five of them.
- I'm in.
- I don't think they knew.
- She's been keeping this to herself.
Sats are up, 96.
- I'd like to run a few tests if that's okay.
- Surgery's here.
- What do you need us to fix? - Twenty-five percent surface area burns.
Crush injury with liver hematoma on FAST scan.
- Pressure's down.
- What's happening? Following the Parkland formula? Four cc's Yes, we know.
Hematoma could be expanding.
Let's look.
Throw in a central line.
I want his BP up before CT.
Intraosseous is faster.
No, I can give more fluids with a central line.
- Wait, wait, wait.
- Hey.
Oh, and I am in before you even gloved up.
All right, let's get him up to CT.
Squeeze in another few liters, and you should go with them.
Let's just follow them.
- I hate surgeons.
Seems like it's mutual.
- How you feeling? - Like hell.
Morris, have you ever heard of a genetic disorder called LCA? - No, but it's just food poisoning - Not you.
The little girl from the fire.
Leber's congenital amaurosis.
It causes center-field vision loss in kids.
And she had a normal fundoscopic exam and nystagmus, which are indicators.
I've never heard of it.
Send her to Optho, let them sort it out.
Can somebody please give me a shot? I'm dying here.
- What is it, Compazine? - Yeah, I've been puking my brains out.
What are you doing? I'll do the arm, no butts.
- Well, it hurts way more in the arm.
- No.
Come on, be a professional.
All right, Abby, make it quick.
Right cheek or left? Okay, exaggerate the deformity slightly, and then pull.
- Ow! What the? - Not bad.
Want a sugar tong extended to the ends of the phalanges? - Thanks, hon.
- Or Sam.
Post-reduction films, get her on the surgery list.
Stabilize the wrist.
You think I can go home soon? I wanna get a tetanus shot for that head lac first, okay? Hey, how long is that gonna take? I should go.
Just hang out, we'll take care of you soon, okay? - Wow, what happened to that guy? - Car accident.
- You did great.
- I did? Hi, stranger, we heard you were back.
- Hi.
- What's up? Nothing.
- Hi.
- Hi.
How are you? Good.
Been gone long, we didn't know if you were coming back.
- Where were you? - I was taking some private time to - Personal time Who are you? - Barry Grossman, Orthopedics.
Hi, Abby Lockhart.
So you're up in Ortho? - Yeah.
- That's great.
How was Croatia? I hear it's gorgeous.
- Yeah, "well " Yeah, I'm going tomorrow.
- Oh, you mean you didn't go? No, Joe and Luka are there, but I had some stuff I had to take care of, so Okay.
Sorry to break up the little reunion, but we gotta - Hey, I'm gonna call you tonight, okay? - Okay.
- I'm gonna go work on that splint.
Cool, I'll meet you there.
- Good to see you.
- Welcome back.
Then the rabbi says to the priest: "I'm sorry, sir, I didn't know you were sitting here.
" That's hilarious.
I've never heard that one before.
- Hi, looks like you guys are having fun.
- Oh, she's delightful.
Well, your labs came back normal, which is good.
There's gonna be another doctor to come talk to you soon, okay? Take your time.
I got nowhere to be.
- You mind if I borrow her for a sec? - Go ahead.
I'll be right back.
Thanks for coming.
I thought a little God talk would do her good.
She's actually an atheist.
But did you know she was a Rockette back in the '50s? That's how she met her husband.
He came to the show and hung out at the stage entrance just so he could meet her.
He said of the whole line of beautiful girls, she was the only one he saw.
So no prayers, no meditation, just shooting the breeze? She's alone and grieving.
And no matter what you believe in " even" if it's nothing, grief is something I'm good with.
Dinner's at Gibson's, by the way.
- Lf that sweetens the deal.
- Doesn't hurt.
- See you later.
- Okay.
Could you page Psych for me again? - What you mean, she wasn't in Croatia? - Luka and Joe went without her.
- Where's she been? - Said she had some personal stuff.
- Sounds like divorce talk to me.
No, you think? Really? I knew it all along.
Just a matter of time.
- Everything okay? - Yeah.
Yeah, it's all good.
- You bet.
Optho returned your call.
- Thanks, Frank.
Watch his IV.
His Iv's flowing.
Trauma 1 is ready.
Hang packed cells now.
- What happened? Crashed before we could scan him.
- What's he mean? - Rapid infuser's primed.
He's bleeding internally.
He needs an ex-lap.
He probably opened up his hematoma.
- We need more access.
BP's 82/58.
Hold on, maybe it's a pelvic fracture.
- You didn't see one.
- It's a tough call on kids.
The symphysis is wide, there's a separation and S-I diastasis.
We don't have time to argue a questionable finding.
- He could be bleeding in his pelvis.
- Liver's the most likely source.
Open his belly and it's a fracture, he'll bleed out.
So we just screw around? - Keep looking.
Show me free fluid, and you can do your ex-lap.
- T-pod him and fuse two units.
- We need to take him up now.
All right, just give her two minutes.
You know how this goes if you're wrong.
This should tamponade any pelvic bleeders.
Liver hematoma's enlarging.
Kid needs the O.
- It's not that impressive.
- Two minutes are up.
- How much blood has he had? - Twenty per kilo.
- Okay, let's get this show on the road.
- Wait, hold on.
Pressure's good, 100/60.
- Hemoglobin's up to 14.
- You see any free fluid in the belly? - I suppose surgery can wait a bit.
- What's going on? We stopped the bleeding.
Okay, stable.
Take him up to CT.
What are you doing out here? - What's the deal with my tetanus shot? No one's come for that yet? Man, I'm sorry, we're really slammed.
Why don't you go lay down on one of the beds.
You'll be more comfortable.
She's been mumbling.
I thought she might wake up.
I'm definitely not the first thing that she wants to see.
Oh, I'm guessing she won't mind.
You saved her life, man.
One night I found her in the hall, passed out and drunk.
So I went in and I fished the keys out of her purse.
I couldn't just leave her there.
But when I brought her inside, she woke up and she freaked out.
Good times.
I'll go check on your tetanus, all right? Hang in there.
Hey, man, listen very carefully, all right? I don't care how backed up you are, just fix it.
Thank you, I'm glad somebody finally gave it to Radiology.
I was on the phone with my landlord.
My toilet's been running for weeks.
Gates, daughter of your patient in 2 returned your call.
- Did Psych come down for her yet? - Not that I know of.
Check on my tetanus guy, please? - Sure.
Thank you.
Oh, my God, pinch me, I'm dreaming.
Yes, gentlemen, may I help you? - We're looking for Dr.
- That's me.
- You must be here for Jake Gleason.
- He all right? He's still in surgery but I'll take you guys up.
- I can do that, Dr.
- Yeah, thanks Javier, but I got this.
Come on, fellas.
We need to do a test called an electroretinogram which tells us if the cells in the retina respond to light.
If it is this LCA thing, what then? We'll know what we're dealing with for one.
And there are some new therapies that could help.
- You just need to sign here for consent.
- Okay.
And they can actually take her today if you want.
Dexter's up in surgery.
Shouldn't I be up there? Okay, how about this? On the way up, we drop you off at the O.
R and I go with Kayla for her test.
You okay with that? Yeah, she can come with me.
- Where the hell is the rest of my stuff? Get back in bed.
- Who are you? - Dr.
You have a serious fracture.
- Whatever.
- You need surgery.
Shut up.
Will you just take this off, so I can go home? - Who stole my shoe? - Lf you don't keep this "immobilized " - it's not gonna heal right.
- Take it off.
- Wanna sign out against medical advice? - Right, I'm not letting you touch me.
Fine by me, I'll get the paperwork.
You walk out that door, you're gonna lose the use of your hand.
Want that? - What? - Just get back in bed, okay? Let us do our job.
- Do you know what happened to you? - I don't know.
You got beat up, and your neighbor, Eddie, intervened.
You mean, the freak? He should mind his own business.
Oh, yeah.
Well, he saved your ass, okay? He's got a pretty nasty cut on his head to prove it.
How long's this gonna take anyways, huh? Does the posterior technique have a name? - The Kocher approach.
- And who was Kocher? A 19th century Swiss surgeon, perhaps the most famous in his day.
Published "Kocher's Operative Surgery," won the Nobel prize in Medicine in 1909.
- She Nobel prized you, bro.
- It's not funny.
Oh come on, give it up.
She's money.
You're money.
Ignore him.
Dude, give her some.
- I need some too.
Oh, no.
What? - Wendy can't play next week.
Out-of-town baby shower.
What position did you play? - Sorry? - Field hockey, what position? Center forward.
We're squared away with your tetanus.
We'll get you signed out, you can split.
- Did she finally wake up? - Yeah, just a bit ago.
And her CT was clear, so she's gonna be fine.
She say anything about what happened? - No, but she was pretty out of it.
- Dr.
Gates? - Not now, Grady, I'm busy.
- It's important.
Like, urgent important.
I'm sorry, I'll be right back.
- What? - It's Mrs.
Smalls in 2.
- Psych not come down yet? - No, that's not really a problem now.
I found her pulseless and apneic.
She's got rigor mortis and lividity.
- She must have died like, an hour ago.
- Didn't anyone come and check on her? We were waiting for Psych.
- You doing okay, kiddo? - Yeah.
You know, if it is LCA, it might be worth a write up.
- We could co-author.
- That's okay, it's all you.
- It doesn't hurt at all.
- See? Told you.
All right, now move your forehead right up to the dome and touch it.
Good, right there.
It will just take a minute to calibrate.
What do you wanna be when you grow up? - A doctor and a singer.
- Wow, both, huh? Well, I can't help you with the singing.
I'm really bad.
- I'm pretty good.
- Why don't you sing me a song? Gates, heard you killed another happy customer today.
That's nice, Frank, great.
Psych just came down to see her.
Said they'd meet you in Sutures.
Somebody's got a lot of explaining to do.
- Can you sign off on our GI bleeder? - I need one for my chemo lady.
- All right.
How are you? I'm good.
I just wanted to say if you need to talk or anything, I'm totally here.
I just wanna make sure that everything's okay.
It's good, I'm good.
The bone fragment was removed from his spine.
Surgery was successful.
He's already started moving his legs.
It's all good.
- Thank you for everything, Ms.
- My pleasure.
You know, I'll make sure the chapel stays open for your guys all night.
Oh, hey, excuse me.
Hi, I'm Dr.
Lockhart, I worked on Jake.
- That's really good news about him.
- Thank you.
- We appreciate everything you did.
- You're very welcome.
Listen, do you, by any chance, know how that fire got started? Ms.
Rosemary Smalls, what happened to her? We don't know.
- All right, then.
Love the easy ones.
Have a good night.
Okay, great, thanks.
Good news, Dexter's surgery went very well.
- He's in Recovery right now.
- Thank God.
Malik can take you there as soon as we're done.

Well, there may be some gene-replacement therapies or clinical studies we can enroll her in.
You know, this is manageable.
There is hope.
There's no reason why she can't be a perfectly happy kid with a full life.
You can do all those tests right here? - No, there's an organization in Iowa - Iowa? Yeah, but we just have to send them a tube of her blood.
And all the tests are free of charge.
Okay, baby girl, let's go ahead and do this.
Oh, and I talked to the fireman and he told me there was an electrical problem on the second floor that started the fire.

First, I need you to do me a really big favor.
Rasgotra, practice is Wednesdays at 6.
Game is Thursday at 7.
We'll be at Ike's if you wanna join us.
Hey, congratulations.
Congratulations? Did you win something? No, I think I just got recruited.
So, what's this big favor? Starting tomorrow, docs will not be permitted to ask a nurse or a clerk to call a consultant.

Why? What if we're in the middle of a trauma? It's just for a month.
We have to present real data to Admin if we wanna eliminate delays.
Unless anybody has anything else to say, come on, let's get back to work.
Oh, yeah, hey, can I have a minute? With everybody? Um, I know some of you have been wondering.
And I appreciate the concern.
I wasn't in Croatia for the last few weeks.
After Luka's father died, they left without me.
And I was in a residential detox facility.
I'm an alcoholic.
I just wanted to set the record straight and tell the truth because I have way too much respect for all of you to keep lying.
And I'm very, very sorry because I know what I did didn't only affect "me " it affected all of you too.
And I just hope I haven't done any irreparable "damage " to any of the relationships here.
But I'm sober now, and I'm going to stay that way.
- So you were in rehab the whole time? - Yeah.
Were you ever drunk at work? Let's get signed out and get back out on the floor.
- We still got a lot of patients out there.
- Thanks.
Thank you.
I told her daughter she was fine.
I worked her up, everything seemed normal.
Did you do everything you were supposed to? Proper history, labs? I could have done an EKG.
You know, cardiac monitor.
Maybe I missed an MI, arrhythmia.
I'd be worried about you if you weren't upset about Mrs.
"Smalls " " but" I think it's pretty obvious what the cause of death was.
She missed her husband, and she wanted to be with him.
- You're kidding me, right? - No, I think she was a pretty lucky lady.
Julia, she died.
She had a beautiful daughter.
She had a full life filled with happiness.
And she found true love.
Some people live their whole lives and never get that.
How else do you explain her husband calling her from the other side? And you really believe that? Yeah, I do.
That's because I have faith.
- Faith.
- Yes.
Look, we all end up like Rosemary Smalls.
Who knows when? Who knows how? But love, trust, truth, higher power, the things that really matter " you" can't have any of those without faith.
Especially love.
Now, we are losing precious pre-dinner drink time and I need at least two martinis to deal with my brother.
So come on.
Come on, come on.
- Some meeting, huh? - Yeah, some meeting.
Admit to Med-Surg for IV antibiotics.
Where are diverticula most likely to be? Narrowest portion with the highest intrasegmental pressures: Sigmoid colon.
Excellent work, Harold.
- All right, you, you, come here.
All right, so here's the deal.
Jaspreet's gone, and she's not coming back.
- Where'd she go? - Well, I could tell you that " but" then I'd have to kill you.
She asked me to relay the following: Archie, thank you for a wonderful night.
It was great, but please stop calling.
And don't ever call again, ever.
Harold, thank you for a wonderful night.
It was great, but please stop calling.
And don't ever call again, ever.
So there you go.
And I'd very much appreciate it if we never speak of this again, ever.
- You? - You? Abby.
- Hi.
Hey, how was your first day back? - How's Ortho? - Great.
I heard about the staff meeting.
Yeah, that was fun.
It's good you said all that.
- Listen, I owe you an apology.
- No, you don't.
I do.
You tried to help me and I just pushed you away.
And you don't deserve that.
I'm still here if you need help, you know.
Thank you.
- God, you had me so worried.
- I know, I'm sorry.
- It's so great to have you back.
- Yup, just in time to leave again.
- When do you go? - Tomorrow morning.
I can't wait.
I miss Joe and Luka like crazy.
- Well, give them my best.
Travel safe.
- Thanks.
- Okay.
- All right.
See you.
