- The Chief of Staff job.
- What about it? - You didn't take it.
- No.
For turning down the crown.
Would you mind giving him to another nurse? - Is there a conflict? - No, no conflict at all, actually.
What are you trying to make up for, drugs? I don't think that everyone should get to be forgiven.
There should be consequences for lying, for You're right.
Jayden's in a reptile phase.
His friend Patrick gave it to him.
- His name is Charlie.
- I had no idea.
I mean, a snake? - Terrifying.
- Right.
- Horrific.
- When did Charlie bite you, Jayden? He didn't mean it.
We were just playing.
I saw him holding his hand at breakfast.
So maybe two hours? We'll do blood and urine tests, but so far, there doesn't seem to be any reaction to venom.
Do you know what kind of snake? - No, but actually - So, STAT CBC, - creatine, urea, electro - I brought it in.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Just put that down! Just on the floor, - just put it on the floor! - Whatever.
You have to look.
We need an ID.
I know that.
Just give me a - What's going on? - Snake.
- Really? - Quiet.
- It's empty.
- Oh, no.
It was, I checked like two minutes ago, it was moving.
Where's my snake? - Charlie! - This isn't happening.
You're going to call security.
Get off the floor, you don't want him to bite you again.
Keep your voice down.
Let's try not to start a panic.
Judging from the bite, it's not even poisonous.
- Oh, Charlie! - Hey, you got a minute? - I'll be right back.
- I'm sorry.
I'm really sorry.
- Nice jacket.
- The new chief's calling a "Stakeholders Meeting" and Summers is forcing me, - against my will, to represent - Yeah, I heard.
- Good luck with that.
- The Dallas Trauma Center called, looking for a reference.
For you.
- Oh.
- Yeah.
- I gave them Summers' number.
- Well, she passed it on to me, - your supervising physician.
- Oh.
And I told them that you were an outstanding doctor with superb instincts and thorough diagnostic skills OK, don't tell Mel.
I mean, I'll tell her, - I've been planning to tell her.
- I thought you were happy.
I am.
She's great, Mel's great, it's not about her.
Well, I'm glad to hear that, but I'm talking about your job.
I thought you were happy here.
Dallas is a major trauma center, more admissions, - more beds, more - Action, I get it.
Opportunity to learn.
Meaning you've learned everything from me? No.
You've been great, it's great here - Then why leave? - 'Cause I don't know.
It's what I do, I guess.
New adventures.
I wouldn't tell that to my daughter if I were you.
Allen There's plenty of opportunities here, son.
We'd all be disappointed to lose you, but we'll get over it.
(moaning) (knocking) Griff, you okay? You should stay home.
I'm gonna tell Kanaskie you still have the flu.
C'mon, Griff.
Griff? I'm going to run in, I'll see you there.
What? Yeah, y'know, I gotta exercise, I gotta sweat.
Griff, you need to go to bed.
Stop trying to be a martyr.
I'm not that sick.
I'm fine, I just got to go to work Griff come on, just go to bed, stop.
Griff, stop.
- I can't stay home.
- Of course you can stay home.
No, I gotta be busy, I gotta be around people.
What are you talking about? Zoe.
I'm going to tell you something, but I need you to promise not to freak out.
I slipped.
I took some stuff.
This isn't the flu, I'm going through withdrawal.
What kind of stuff? Coke and pills.
- Oh, my God.
- I stopped, five days, I've been going to meetings.
- Are you kidding me? - Zoe, listen to me.
I'm clean, I'm through the worst of it.
I'm back on track.
(yelling): Are you kidding me? - Zoe - Stay away from me, I'm going to work! (door banging) (theme song) I have beautiful ankles.
It's one of my best features.
My sister is bringing me my kinky boots.
- Next patient? - Jennifer Wilson, 32, recently returned from a business trip to Montreal.
Vomiting, diarrhea last 12 hours.
- Ms.
Wilson, I'm Dr.
- Finally, a doctor.
- Nick - My wife's in pain.
She spent the night in the bathroom.
We waited for hours.
Jennifer, I'm going to start with a quick exam.
See what I can find out.
Some tenderness and guarding in the abdomen, but that's to be expected.
- Bowel sounds are normal.
- I'm sure it's something that I ate.
Four days on the road.
Hotel food.
It's not the food, Jen.
She can't keep anything down, - not even water.
- Temp 37.
BP 100 over 60.
That's not ideal but nothing to worry about.
Let's do a CBC, - get a urine sample.
- Nothing to worry about? Mr.
Wilson, we're going to take excellent care of your wife.
Let's start off with an IV, get some fluids started, and I'll check back in a while, ok? If she's sick, if she's really sick, you need to be doing something, you need to be working on that, not waiting - for blood work.
- Dr.
Trauma coming in, I need you.
Nick, we're going to figure this out, okay? - What've you got? - Mirza Ghorbani, in the exercise yard - at Etobicoke Detention.
- I gotta stay with him.
Let's go.
Penetrating wound in the left upper quadrant, along with the broken nose.
Possible fractures to the right hand.
I have a knot in my stomach.
I swear to God, Jason's getting worse.
Micro-managing control obsessed.
Everything I do he has a problem with, I can't pick up a pen.
Well, he's also your boss, Sandy.
People have bosses.
This drives me crazy.
I mean, he parks this like it's some kind of private I mean, it's an ambulance bay - at a hospital! - You're in a mood today.
Is that Griff? It is, it's Griff.
Look at him.
What are you, what are you doing, - you're running to work? - Tail end of a flu, I figured - I'd sweat it out.
- Sound medical theory.
You look terrible, should you be here, infecting people? What about you? You sound like a chain smoker.
Not contagious.
Me too.
Look at this idiot, he puts his hazards on, like that makes it OK, like he's not parked in an ambulance bay, obstructing an ambulance from coming in here - and saving someone's life! - Sandy.
- Look, it's the idiot.
- Gord, hey! Hey, this is great, I was just going to text you.
Hey, have you do you remember my sister, Mel? - Hello, Gord.
- I was actually just dropping - my friend Steve off - Oh, chemo, yeah.
God, where do you guys park around here? - I know, right? - The lot over there is like $35 - a day.
- There's meters on Gould, - but you have to be gone by - You should get going because Hey, we're still on for tonight? - Yup.
- Don't forget, the Shangri-La.
Diamond Suite.
- Champagne on ice.
- (horn) - Sorry! - Let's move it! Shut up.
You have a sex date.
That's incredibly adorable.
I'm not.
We're not.
We haven't actually - Really? - It hasn't felt right.
- But tonight's the night? - No, I don't know.
- It's incredibly stressful.
- Because you're breaking the rules? He booked a suite.
He's connected to one of your patients and you're worried Jason's going to find out and fire your ass.
Ha! He can't fire anything, I'd like to see him try.
To hell with Jason, you need to get busy, Sandy, stat.
I mean it.
You need to relax.
There's nothing relaxing about it.
Do you know how long it's been since I've had sex? - (whispering): Sandy.
- I have stretch marks, I'm still, God, I'm still lactating! I have an 8-month-old daughter and I'm going on a sex date.
- It's fantastic! - It's ridiculous.
Hey, I need you to do me a favour.
Yeah, sure, name it.
You wanna give that to Marla for me, she went upstairs Whoa, whoa, hey.
Just flip it to her, I'm going to be late for my other job.
- You flip it to her.
- Dude, she's going to a concert tonight, Nine Inch Nails.
Alright? It's no wonder - why she wants to get high.
- PJ, seriously - I did you a favour.
- C'mon I lied to Zoe for you.
You scratch my back I scratch yours, - alright? - Man, don't make me do this.
Ah, come on, man, stop crying.
- Hey, Lady Zee, what's up, baby? - Hey, PJ.
- How you doing? - Good.
Rivera, perfect.
Don't get changed, - you're going upstairs.
- What? The new chief, he called a stakeholders meeting, I forgot all about it, ok? But he wants representatives from the front of the line, - so - And you want me to do it.
You are articulate and you're thoughtful about the issues that concern us, and I happened to see you standing here, so I'm not really feeling it today, Kanaskie.
What's to feel? You go, you just sit down, you stay quiet, you have a danish.
Conner! Get to work! Oh, and, y'know, no telling tales, ok? What happens in Vegas stays down here in Vegas, capisce? Ok.
Zoe, can I just explain to you what happened this morning? Zoe? Hey.
Zoe, come on.
Room still spinning? - Not so much.
- Good.
It's probably just a concussion.
Soon as the on-call surgeon has a look at your abdominal injuries, we'll get you to CT to confirm.
- You're the boss, doc.
- Bleeding's stopped.
How's your pain, Mr.
Ghorbani? Any better? Still hurts.
He musta stuck me while he was banging my head against the brick wall.
Judging from those knuckles, you got in a few shots yourself.
Just to keep from getting killed.
I'm the victim here, alright, don't forget that.
Yeah, as far as we're concerned, you're the patient.
- We don't take sides.
- Did I miss all the fun? Mirza Ghorbani, penetrating abdominal trauma to the left side.
- Three shallow stab wounds.
- He's hemodynamically stable with no signs of internal bleeding.
Cutler thought you should assess.
Then assess I shall.
Just relax, Mr.
Edges are smooth.
The wounds look clean.
Lets get a FAST to assess for vascular damage.
No free fluid or signs of damage to the stomach or spleen.
No visible foreign matter.
Not surgical.
These can be debrided and packed.
I have to get back upstairs.
- You thought I should assess? - I wanted to see you.
- Total abuse of process.
- I know, it's appalling.
Hey, so, you haven't talked to your father today? - No, why? - Good.
I mean, I think he's upstairs.
Something with the new chief, - he's not happy about it, so - Doctor Cutler.
I gotta go.
- The tests, are they back yet? - Not yet.
I'll let you know.
Jennifer, she's so pale.
And she said her fingertips were tingling.
Soon as they come in, I'll look in.
You should stay with your wife, Nick, ok? Snake traps, they're putting out snake traps.
- Good.
- He said it's a long shot.
Do you know what he said? We'll probably never find it.
It'll just lurk there, in the walls.
Waiting to pick us off one by one.
Hi, there.
- Feeling any better? - Yeah, no, I'm good.
I just have to Marla! Marla.
Come here.
This is the last time, alright? Don't put me in this position again Thanks, bud.
What, doing a favour for a friend? Maybe you should get over yourself, Griff, what do you think.
- Mel - What was that? Oh, my God, I'm an idiot.
The runny nose, the sweating, that was the flu.
- Is it pills again or have you graduated? - I'm not on anything I don't believe you, Griffin, you know why? I'm not blind! - Griffin - I'm outta here.
(sighing) Zoe, they roped you into this too? I've never been in this room before.
These things make me want to chew off my own hand.
I should've brought some booze.
How's Griff doing? You know that's always the first thing you ask me? You're right, I'm sorry.
I should at least start with "How are you doing, Zoe?" - Truthfully, I have had better days.
- Well, here's a tip avoid eye contact.
You start looking at people, you end up on 13 different committees.
- Dr.
Conner, I presume.
- Hmm? Dennis Gillray.
- New Chief of Staff.
- Dr.
Gillray, of course, welcome to Beth-H.
This is Zoe Rivera, PSA, one of our finest.
- PSA.
- I clean.
Of course.
Well, I'm surprised to see you not surrounded by family.
I heard you can't swing a dead cat.
- Is that right? - Good! Well, we should get started.
(clapping) It was a drug deal, Sandy.
He was selling drugs to Did you talk to him? - He denied it! - Oh, man.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Okay, you know what? - Let's not - Sandy I'm just saying, let's not jump to He said he wasn't using.
Addicts are liars, Sandy.
Don't even think about - defending him.
- I can't talk right now.
I take it that's our patient? Sandy, I've asked you to limit personal calls to your break.
Mirza Ghorbani.
Concussion, and there's some minor edema on his CT, sot hey want hourly assessments.
We'll keep contact to an absolute minimum.
- Really? - Yeah.
He's considered violent, - there's a custody protocol.
- He's a patient, Jason.
We need to care for him, not worry about custody The safety of my staff, priority one.
The rules are there for a reason, Sandy.
No one goes in his room unless I'm there.
Got it? Snake boy and his mother have gone.
I got a full description before they left.
A Massasauga Rattler.
Completely deadly.
The venom contains a digestive enzyme - that causes severe internal bleeding.
- Kid showed no signs of that.
It's called a dry bite.
Not uncommon.
God help me, I'm becoming an expert.
Oh, and if it is pregnant, it could, literally, at any moment, give birth to up to 20 little disgusting baby snakes.
- What? - Jennifer Wilson's blood work.
It shows a high WBC.
She's in leukocytosis! Jennifer.
- Jennifer, Jennifer, wake up.
- What's happening? Nick? - Nick? - I'm right here, babe.
Jennifer, I need you to stay awake, I need to ask you a few questions.
Have you had headaches, neck pain, stiffness? No.
You said your last period was three weeks ago.
- Was it normal? - Uh-huh.
Any abnormal bleeding, - discharge? Any cuts or sores? - No.
Systolic BP only 83.
Resp rate 35.
- Dr.
- Her blood work came back.
Jennifer has an infection, probably bacterial.
Pulse is thready.
We don't know the cause, not yet.
We'll need to run a few more tests.
Start standard doses of IV flucloxacillin, gentamicin - She's tachycardic.
- Come on Jennifer, wake up.
- Wake up.
- What's wrong? Wake up.
Let's get her into trauma.
You, in here now! Move it.
Who the hell's been monitoring? She's cyanotic, her BP's tanked.
We had a rush of patients.
Everybody was looking for the snake Forget the damn snake.
This patient should never have been allowed to get this sick! Trauma room, let's go! Jennifer has developed sepsis.
She's moving into toxic shock.
People die from that, don't they? Dr.
Cutler? - She's stable, but her vitals are lousy.
- Hold steady right there.
That's good.
Okay, advancing the needle and we've got flashback.
BP steady at 85 over 62.
Why wasn't this line run sooner? She spiraled pretty quickly.
Yeah, and it takes all of, what, 5 minutes to run a line Okay.
(sighing) Preparing to insert the guide wire.
- Have you found the source? - Not yet.
- Toxic shock, find the source.
- You think I don't know that? Peter! This'll get the antibiotics in quicker.
Quicker distribution.
Placement looks good.
And making a small incision for the catheter.
- Jerry? - She's stable.
- For now.
- Okay.
Threading the catheter.
I blew it.
I missed the call.
The husband told me her fingers - were tingling and instead of - You were waiting blood work.
- I lost crucial time.
- Stop it.
Don't go there, Peter, you did everything right.
You can't start second-guessing.
Snake got loose in the ER.
Potentially deadly.
I'm going to pretend you didn't just say that.
Can we go for a drink afterwards, - after work? - Sure.
Good, I've got this thing I want to talk about, it's not I was going to wait, but it's no big deal.
We'll just talk about it later.
What are you, Mr.
Cryptic? I gotta go.
We're monitoring your wife's blood pressure and oh-2 levels, and giving her a massive amount of antibiotics.
What's important now is we need to identify the source of the infection.
Where it started.
Jennifer's been working like mad.
Travelling all over the place, hospitals, airports.
She's supporting us both while I try to get my job going.
- What kind of - Custom furniture, design and build.
I'm trying to establish myself.
OK, could she have gotten a splinter at your shop? No, she hasn't been there in several weeks.
- You seriously have no idea? - We'll figure this out.
You have to.
Jennifer is I mean, she's my life.
Three different Chiefs of Staff in the last two years.
Look, Beth-H is drifting.
It's directionless.
The good news is, we are about to plot a course correction for a new and exciting destination.
Now let me ask you a question.
What is the most expensive supply unit in any hospital? A patient in a bed.
at up to $1,200 per.
There's the math.
It's killing us.
Outpatients are the future of Beth-H.
High value in demand clinics.
Cataracts, plastic surgery, obesity, orthopedics, dermatology.
We could service well over a thousand outpatients a day.
Hospital without beds.
Think about that.
Think about that.
Excuse me, sorry, I have a question.
Zoe Rivera.
We met earlier.
You're talking about cutting beds.
Doesn't that mean cutting jobs? - Ok.
I think what you - Cutting PSAs, porters, even nurses.
People will lose their jobs! Once I've outlined You're talking about the future of the hospital and that doesn't include the huge amount of people that work here? I mean, do you really just expect us to sit here while you threaten our jobs, our friends' jobs? Are you finished? Thank you.
Look, I want to hear all of your concerns.
- But - She has a point.
Conner, please.
I mean, you're cherry-picking the most profitable services.
Everything else gets cut.
You're sacrificing patient care.
We are not sacrificing patient care.
We are redefining what a patient is in the 21st century.
Let me walk you through this.
Ghorbani? - Mr.
- Get away! - Get away - Relax, Ghorbani, - it's just the nurse.
- Sandy.
We're supposed to just check on him every hour.
I thought I was It was just a reflex.
You gotta be on your guard every minute in the joint.
How's your headache, scale of one to five? Three and a half.
So, how am I doing? We'll know more after your next CT.
Temp's good.
Meaning I could be back inside by tomorrow morning.
Well, that's up to the doctor.
But in the meantime, you just rest up.
You're safe here, okay? We're going to take good care of you.
I specifically told you not to go in there I heard what you told me, Jason, but you weren't here - and I'm not to page you every - That's what you're supposed - This is a complex, fluid environment.
- You won't win this argument.
- Just listen - Sandy, you follow my rules or you go work somewhere else.
It's entirely up to you.
Can you check on Mr.
Barkley, please? Sandy.
Sandy, Sandy, Sandy.
- Griff, how are you feeling? - You talked to Mel? - Yeah, uh-huh.
- Ok, just a second, come on.
No, no.
She's wrong.
I was doing it as a favour, I was a go-between, that's it.
I'm not selling drugs, I'm not using, I'm clean.
Look, why don't you talk to your friends, whatever they the buyer, the seller.
Y'know, get them to back you up.
Maybe if Mel hears it from them? Okay? And change your shirt.
You're soaked through.
- Which sister? - Mel.
The doctor sister? Yeah, you just got to tell her it wasn't my weed.
- She'll get me fired.
- No, she won't.
My only hope is that we all look the same to her, all PSAs.
Marla, look, she doesn't care about you.
It's this thing between me and her.
There's like a history there.
You just gotta tell her the truth.
The way things are going around here, I am this close to being laid off.
I'm not risking this gig, my benefits, 'cause you got family issues.
- Marla, hey, Marla, come on! - Let go! God, Griff Get a mop! A MOP! Hey, I've got the distal fracture.
Kid in 3 fell off his bike, probably scrapes and bruises.
Can you Dr.
- You want to share it with the class? - Jennifer Wilson, - the toxic shock.
- What about her? Second round of blood tests are in.
Her HCG levels are almost 100,000.
That'd make her, what, 10 weeks pregnant? Pregnant and septic.
Bad combination.
She told me she had a regular period three weeks ago.
- She lied to me.
- Peter, I don't think it's you she lied to.
I'm going to pop up to ICU.
Half hour, max.
Jennifer, your blood work came back.
I'd like to ask you about it.
Your HCG levels indicate that you're pregnant.
About 10 weeks.
And so, I need to ask.
I'm not I'm Not what? Not pregnant? Not anymore.
I had an abortion.
In Montreal, four days ago.
And Nick doesn't know.
We both, we want kids, we have a plan, a family, a life together.
- We want children.
- But not yet.
With my work and with - And Nick, his business, I couldn't.
- Okay, okay.
He would have chucked it all away, everything.
The plan, his dream.
He would've got some awful job.
And now this.
(crying): I just want him to be happy.
What have I done? Residual reproductive tissue in the uterus.
Not uncommon, but in this case, it necrotized.
- That's the source? The infection? - I'll give her oxytocin, it'll force contractions.
Best case scenario, - the tissue will be expelled.
- She doesn't want her husband - to know about the abortion.
- That's her prerogative, Doctor.
Good news, we're making progress.
I've determined that your wife's infection started in her uterus.
Her uterus? How is that? I don't understand.
- Dr.
Cutler? - We're not sure how it happened or why it happened, but bacteria entered the bloodstream.
Can you treat it? What can you do? I'm going to remove the infected tissue, give her high-dose antibiotics, and we will see how she responds.
So is this what they mean by the carrot and the stick? They're trying to buy our love? - It'll take more than a sandwich.
- I would have never guessed.
Listen, how're you doing, you ok? I just made a complete idiot out of myself, - didn't I? - No, it was brave.
I'm having kind of a weird day.
- It was very impressive.
- I just stood up to the Chief of Staff of the hospital and practically burst into tears.
Why, is that not characteristic? No, it is.
It's completely characteristic.
Ha! Ha! I'm Ben Lasalle.
I'm with Occ Health and Social work, half and half.
I'm a psychologist.
- Zoe Rivera, PSA.
- PSA, yeah, I heard.
So what do you think, authority issues? No, I think you're not just a PSA.
Not "just", not that there's anything wrong with that - You're not only a PSA.
- I have an M.
in Cultural Studies.
I started to work here to pay for school, then just stayed.
(cell vibrating) So, weird how? You said that you were having a Day.
I am.
Trust me.
Zoe, hey.
Yeah, you're probably still in your meeting.
Can you just give me a call when you get a break? Your phone's off.
Just, please, just, just call me, ok? Please.
- What's going on, man? - You gotta call my sister.
You gotta tell her that it wasn't my weed, I was just doing you a favour, ok? Just tell her that it was not my weed.
You want me to call your sister? I need you to call her right now, you gotta just tell her - that I'm clean too.
- Yeah, and then, - hypothetically what happens? - Then she gets off my back.
Yeah, and then she thinks I'm a damn drug dealer.
- No, man, she - And Kanaskie tells me to hit the bricks.
- PJ, PJ - Dude, you can't come up here and start asking me and telling me what to do! Would you please just do this for me? My neighbour, you better seriously pump the brakes and get your hands off me right now.
You got a problem, you need to figure it out.
You need help.
We can't just not believe everything he says.
- Maybe it is the flu.
- I knew you were going to do this.
Yes, he had problems in the past, but maybe now he's just, maybe he needs the support of his family.
Ten o'clock.
It's your lover.
Hey, I was looking for you.
Hey, Mel.
- (both): Hey.
- I was thinking, why don't I pick you up after work instead of meeting there? - It doesn't make any sense.
- Sure.
OK, so, whenever you're done, I'll just meet you down here.
Also, I just feel like in terms of expectations, I just want you to know - Sandy.
Two o'clock.
- You have to go.
- What? - I'll call you later, go! - Did he? - I don't think so.
This is what I'm reduced to.
It's ridiculous.
I have to talk to Jason.
I'm going to talk to him.
- We need to deal with Griff.
- Okay, so, what, should we tell Dad? - God no, he'd freak.
- So what, Mel? What do you want us to do? - There you are.
I've been looking for you.
- What do you want, Mel? The Employee Assistance Program.
Right here at Bethune.
I've filled out the papers.
All you have to do is sign.
If you're registered, they can't fire you.
I'm not kidding, - Griff, by the end of the day.
- Or what? I am trying to help you! Oh, there you are.
You sure you don't want another hour for lunch? I wanted to talk to you, actually.
I had to go to the DMV, get my license renewed.
- The lines are so long.
- You know, I could go back to the computer right now and just check your actual date birth date.
But I don't want to because I'm too tired.
Why am I too tired? Because I have been dealing with a tsunami of complaints about you! Destroying an entire morning's worth of blood samples, hmm? Mixed with urine and God knows what else in the middle of a - When were you gonna report that to me? - We cleaned it up.
Body fluids.
Body fluids! I'll be lucky if we don't have to disinfect the whole ward! The tray slipped, I'm sorry, I don't know how it You are on notice, on notice.
I don't care whose kid you are.
Give me one more reason, give me one more, and it's arrivederci on the slide guitar.
(Jennifer): No, I'm not doing it.
Babe, listen to me, okay, your body is shutting down.
You can go into a coma at any time.
You could have - a heart attack, a stroke.
- How are you doing, Jennifer? She's not getting any better.
The antibiotics aren't working.
Yeah, I've been following her chart.
- They think it's a different bacteria.
- Clostridium sordelli.
They say the only thing to save her is a hysterectomy.
It's the only way to make sure they'll get all the infected tissue.
But she keeps saying no.
She's saying no.
Even though without it, she might die.
I'm sorry, I'm a mess.
- It's okay.
- No.
No, no, it's not okay.
Just, we're going to have kids, we're still gonna have them No, Jen, you could die if you don't have that operation.
- Do you not understand that? - Then you can have kids - with somebody else.
- What? That's crazy, what Can you help me out here? Come talk to me.
Come on.
Let's let Jennifer rest.
It's her decision, not yours.
Try not to get her upset.
What if she's not in her right mind? Then it would be my decision, right? - She's gambling.
She's taking a risk.
- She's not making any sense.
The antibiotics could still kick in, she could still get through this.
What's the matter with you? You're a doctor.
You need to help me.
A hysterectomy? Is she strong enough? I don't know.
I guess.
- Who's the - Arbus.
And the patient's refusing.
They've always planned to have kids.
It's a big deal for them, a family.
And now she feels responsible.
- The abortion.
- She feels responsible, she's rolling the dice, trying to make it right.
I mean, what do I even say to this guy? She needs to tell him the truth.
She's making this huge decision based on - It's her decision to make.
- So you believe she's entitled to keep a massive secret, even if Yes.
Of course I do.
And so do you.
(cell ringing) - We're still drinking later? - Yeah.
ER consult.
Tell me they found the snake.
- Not yet.
- So, this could be the last time you see me.
- These could be my last words.
- Ha! I regret nothing.
Here's the thing about rules.
Really? We're still doing this? Look I get it, okay, you have certain responsibilities and you have to rely on all the many rules and regulations for direction, I get that.
But here is where I think that you could benefit from my experience.
We're caring for patients, and so we have got to be flexible.
And my advice is just think of them more as guidelines.
Obey them in spirit, absolutely, but don't get - Where are you going? - Gotta see a man about a horse.
So my point is this you can't be too litteral about rules, - they're not - Sandy, I would respect you way more if you would just be honest with me.
- What? - This isn't about patient care.
- This is about getting some.
- Uh, no, it isn't.
The guy in the cafeteria, Gord Mathers, the emergency contact for one of your patients.
The rules say you can't date him, and now you're seeing him anyway and skulking around trying to hide it from me.
You were spying on me? Sandy it's against the rules.
(sighing) Thanks for the backup earlier.
This is exactly why I shouldn't go to these things.
Well, if you ask me, it's exactly why you should.
It was very brave.
Is everything okay, Zoe? Things with Griff, they're Are you okay? - Allen.
- (sighing) I'll talk to you later.
Thanks again.
- Good session.
- You think? I appreciate your insights, Allen.
I can learn from you.
Now with your permission, I would like to keep you close.
Kind of an unofficial advisor.
A senate, if you will.
People aren't going to stand by, Dennis.
- I'm sorry? - While you dismantle everything that's good, everything they love about this place.
Are you the people, Allen? I guess I am.
You might be in for a fight, Dennis.
Well, I'm a lover, not a fighter, Allen.
(man moaning) (Ghorbani): Dammit! Mr.
Ghorbani? Whoa, hey, what are you doing? Get back into bed.
Out of my way.
- You never saw this, you were never here.
- Get back into bed, or I'll I don't want to hurt you.
- Let her go! - Out of the way Let her go! Get outta my way or (cry of pain) What the hell happened here? - Are you sure you're ok? - Yeah.
Alright, let's go.
What's going on? I got your page.
- She's asking for you.
- Who is, Jennifer? The husband's calling a lawyer.
He's trying to force the hysterectomy.
- Dr.
Cutler, thank God.
- Hey.
Can you tell him, please? - I'm not crazy.
- I'm not saying you are, Jen, I'm saying you're not thinking clearly right now.
Don't do this.
You're not capable of making the right decision.
- He called a lawyer.
- I don't think - that's a good idea.
- Why? Why isn't it? - She could die.
- Jennifer.
The truth.
I had an abortion, Nick.
There was residual tissue left behind in her uterus.
It necrotized.
That was the source of the infection.
I'm sorry.
I screwed up.
Everything, I wrecked it.
You And you thought that I would I would blame you? - She was trying to fix it.
- Oh, my God.
- I'm sorry.
- No, no, it doesn't matter, baby.
It does.
It does.
We want a family.
- I don't - Listen, listen, I don't care, I don't care.
I need you to be alive.
Ok? We're going to have a family.
We'll adopt, whatever it takes.
We'll figure it out.
I love you.
I need you to live.
You need to do the surgery.
I love you so much, sweetie.
It's going to be ok.
Ok? Everything's going to be ok.
- Did you sign the forms? - Take it.
Test it.
You don't believe it's mine, right now I'll go pee in front of anybody you want, right now.
I'm not going to test your urine No, no, you want me to be high, right? As long as I'm the screw-up, then I'm the addict and you're the perfect one.
This family is ridiculous, you guys want a punching bag to feel better about yourselves.
Kicking me while I'm down, does that make you feel good? - The selfish, inconsiderate - That's crap.
The lying to our faces, - the contempt that you've shown us.
- Oh, please! This family has done nothing but bend over backwards to help you, Griffin, no matter how pathetic, and I am not doing it anymore.
I am done.
So you go ahead, you do your thing, your drugs, you destroy every good thing, every relationship.
I'm not using.
Why can't one of you, - just one of you believe me? - You call me, Griff, when you've hit bottom and you've lost everything and everyone.
You call me then.
(knocking) - What are you doing down here? - Um, I need a research assistant.
Nothing fancy.
It's just asking questions, checking boxes for my study, patient care.
You interested? - Really? - M.
, Cultural Studies.
You had to do research.
I mean, I could work around your shifts.
- Okay.
- Yeah, okay.
I should probably get your I don't have any paper.
This is my email.
You send me yours, and I'll send you the abstract for the study.
- Ok, I guess I'll see you soon.
- See you soon.
I think I might have broken a knuckle.
Didn't know you were such a tough guy.
Ha! Hey, if you want to sleep with that guy, go ahead.
Just remember that his friend was your patient and you were his nurse.
You're always going to be Florence Nightengale to him.
I appreciate that.
Jennifer did well.
The surgery was a success.
- That's good news.
- Yeah.
I couldn't tell you, Nick, I'm sorry.
- I know.
- It was private.
It was up to Jennifer.
It's okay.
I get it.
We'll get through this.
Thank you.
Hey, you ready? Here's the thing.
I like you.
I really do.
- Uh-oh.
- And I would, normally, I would jump at the chance to have sex with you, but there are so many things my daughter, my job, my, God, my family nightmare not to mention the fact that you you parked in an ambulance bay.
- What? - This morning, - you parked in the ambulance bay.
- What does that have to do I just think that maybe we just don't see the same things in the the same way.
And you can't just put your hazards You parked in the ambulance bay and you couldn't see what that meant.
I have enough going on right now.
More than enough, and I just think that maybe we should just not see each other for a while.
I'm sorry.
Tell you what.
Um Why don't you call me when you figure it out, ok? Ok.
(sighing) - Any sign of your long skinny friend? - I have a new theory he doesn't exist.
The whole thing was a false alarm.
- There is no snake.
- Yeah? We spent the entire day looking.
Total waste of time.
I'm moving on.
I choose not to live in fear.
- Attagirl.
- See you tomorrow.
- (hissing) - (screaming) (screaming) Hey.
Coke and pills.
How long? - And don't lie to me? - Five weeks.
I've been clean for five days.
I slipped up, Zoe.
But I was honest, I told you.
- Five weeks later.
- I didn't harm you.
I didn't spend the rent money, I haven't stolen from you, I haven't screwed around on you.
I messed up, Zoe, but the on I'm clean.
Look at me, I'm clean.
The only way that I can fight this, the only way that I can do this is with you.
Zoe, I need you.
I need You said that you loved me.
I need that strength, I need your help.
Zoe, I need you.
I'm going to bed.
Zoe Dallas.

I didn't want to say anything until I got an offer.
I mean we've got kind of a strange thing going Not strange exactly You wanted to keep your options open.
