RFDS (2021) s02e03 Episode Script


RODEO-CALLER: Can we have our
medical team into the arena, please.
Cameron, can you hear me?
Get you into town for a C
just to make sure there's
nothing wrong with your head.
- I'll be right.
- Oi, where are you going? Don't be an idiot.
Hope I see you around.
- High beta HCG can indicate some other things.
- Like what?
It can potentially be raised by a tumor.
Rolled ute, we've got two casualties.
Sorry, my phone was out of action.
What happened with the backup doctor?
I was going to ask you the same thing.
Is Johnny OK?
He's right there.
No, he was in the back.
Johnny. Johnny. That's it.
I'm Dr. Turner.
I've secured the tube, so
whatever you do, don't touch it.
Yeah, no worries.
Wait. Where are you?
Are you OK? What is it?
I think we need to readjust the tube.
I thought the locum
said not to touch it.
He's hypoxic. Do we have a
choice? We need to do a cric.
The cognitive test did reveal
some issues with his speech.
From the cut?
Yeah, they've attempted to repair it.
We'll know more in the coming weeks.
- What are you doing here?
- I thought I'd pop in.
Here for a follow up, I hope.
This is my follow up.
Being with you, you know, I
feel way better about myself.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Holy hell. Please tell me this
means what I think it means.
Sure, we can come to some arrangement.
This is so serendipitous.
All set?
Thanks, Lee.
WOMAN: Just one.
Chop chop, Petey.
Mate, I haven't seen you this
eager to clock off since
steak night at the Denno Club.
- Time's money.
- Thought you said it was relative.
Well, today it's money.
Hey, fellas, did you get
that last minute add-on,
- a P5 ex-pat back to Broken Hill?
- P5? They heard of Qantas.
Oh, sorry about him. Skipped brekkie.
Patient's John Hill,
tracheostomy after a CICO,
has a mental health consult.
You warm enough?
Oh, about half an hour.
TANNOY: All passengers flying on
flight QF 3409 departing for Dubbo.
I'll be there to pick
you up in the morning.
You don't have to do that.
I have flown halfway around the
planet, I think I can manage Dubbo.
MAN: Got your boarding pass there?
This time tomorrow, it'll be done.
- Oh.
Go, work.
RFDS, Dr. Harrod speaking.
I have missed saying that.
Boarding pass.
Hang on. Hold up. Hold up.
What are you doing?
Just a little good luck charm.
- Your Nomad?
- Got me through a few scrapes.
Thank you.
- Hi.
- Hey.
I've got Johnny in Room Two.
He's also waiting on
a speech pathologist.
Ah, yeah. Sorry, he was a
last-minute referral. You OK?
Yeah, yeah. No. All good.
Did you did you get some brekkie?
Ah, yes. Yeah. And I also found Taylor.
Oh. Hell. What walk of shame was that?
I was wearing a footy
shirt so pretty shaming.
Ah, there she is.
(LAUGHS) Good morning.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Good to be back?
Yeah. It's good. Yeah.
Well, you're not wasting
any time, are you?
Uh, no, P1. Five-year-old
boy on a station.
Possible head injury after falling over.
No loss of consciousness,
but he's nauseous and drowsy
with a graze above his right eye.
Which station?
Uh, let's see. At Narraga.
Narraga, yeah, that's
That's Max and Zoe's boy.
As far as I know it's just
Zoe and she's very distressed.
I need to call her back.
Can you please prep a full drug
trauma and airway kit? Thanks.
Yeah, yeah, sure.
- Hello. Nice to see you.
- Hi.
So, what's her deal? What do you mean?
I mean, like, she was
here and then she wasn't.
And now she's here again.
Must have missed the weather, eh?
- Have fun.
- Yeah. See ya.
Oh, honey, the drama.
Psst! Go on, get. (SHOOING NOISES)
- Get!
- You right there?
Heard that bloody
mopoke again last night.
The bloody thing followed me here.
Or a different bird entirely, maybe.
Hey, when you finish tonight,
do you want to grab a meal?
- There's something that I'd
- God.
- I swear to God.
- Hey, Mirrabooka.
- Hey, Timmy.
You know what that one means, Wayney?
Mirrabooka? Yeah, of course I do.
Go on, then.
Southern Cross.
Hey, look out. There's
hope for him yet, Mira.
I don't know about
that. Hey, I gotta go.
But I assume I'll see you tonight?
Only a couple of days.
A few meetings in town.
Oh, you're an important man, Timmy.
God, I forgot how hot it gets here.
I thought that's why
you came back: the heat.
You know, I did try to call you.
Oh, was that on your stopover at Changi?
RFDS, Dr. Harrod speaking.
Cabinet attendant, prepare
the cabin for awkward silences.
I mean, landing.
Just keep your eyes on the skies, mate.
If you have him comfortable
under some shade,
and you've given him
some paracetamol, then
Yes, you're doing
everything that you can.
I know, I know it's scary,
but we'll be there very soon, I promise.
Bye bye.
Bit stressed?
Not coping at all.
Mira, would you mind coming in with us?
I'd love to.
I have a feeling we might
need some crowd control.
I was inside. I don't
know what happened.
He fell and he bumped his head,
and he said he's got a headache,
and that his eyes are blurry,
and his ears are buzzing.
That's all right. We'll have a
look and check everything out.
- G'day, mate.
- I'm Dr. Eliza. This is Pete. He's a nurse.
Do you mind if I take a
little look at your head?
Thank you.
Now, we met you when you
were tiny. Your name is?
Let me remember. Was it Spider-Man?
- Otis.
- Otis.
Secret identity. Good thinking.
And you know where you are, Otis?
Good boy.
Right, you reckon you can be
as brave as Spider-Man for me
while I do this little needle?
Here we go, little pinch.
Ah. What? Even braver,
didn't even flinch.
Otis, can you follow my pen?
All right.
Both pupils reactive
but ptosis on the right.
What does that mean? Is that bad?
- Hold on.
- Oh, God.
What's happening?
What's What's going on?
It's alright, mate.
Hey, Zoe, do you want to
help me grab some of the gear
off the ute and let these
guys run their tests?
It's alright. You're alright.
He's in good hands. He's gonna be OK.
Do you think it's just
from the head injury?
I'm not sure. Let's do a
head to toe and go from there.
Big breath.
Yeah, well, you're looking
good for an old fella.
I know. You're not.
Yeah, well, I didn't
sleep last night, did I?
Bloody mopoke kept me up all night.
Oh, mopoke. Bad news them fellas.
How much you drinking lately?
Nah, zero. I give it up.
- For real?
- Taking my pills and insulin, most of the time.
And began a start up, delivering
kangaroo tails to mob in need.
I call it Deliveroo.
- That's not bad.
Well, whatever you're doing
or not doing, you keep it up.
Your levels are looking good.
I told you God would look after me.
Yeah, well, I'm good, but I'm not God.
Them mopoke, they're not mucking around.
This far from the river, huh?
You'd do well to get right
with the big guy upstairs, too.
Oh, yeah.
- Hey, look out. This might be him now.
It's just a disciple. Matthew.
ACC called,
49-year-old male prisoner with
a shaft of wood in his abdomen.
What do you reckon? Got
ourselves a shivving?
Oh, yeah, for sure.
Grab two units of blood and the
ultrasound. I'll be right in.
You given up the smokes too?
What? You want me to
give up everything fun?
- No, I want to steal one.
- (LAUGHS) Oh.
Five POV with the corrections
officer. I'll go grab some bloods.
- Adelaide?
- Oh, no, here's a new one.
Sprinkler system went off
in Adelaide Met Theatre
- We're going to Dubbo instead.
- Dubbo?
No neck stiffness, no
obvious rash, no photophobia.
Maybe diabetes. What's the BSL?
It was all fine. 5.5.
Can you tell me if you
hurt anywhere, OK, Otis?
Has he been drinking any more than
usual? Going to the toilet more?
No. No, I don't think so.
Tummy's fine.
Otis, can you push
your feet into my hands
like you're driving a race car?
Oh, is this sore?
What's this from?
He scratched himself playing
on the old truck this morning.
- Before he hit his head?
- Uh, yeah.
- Um, that's not a scratch.
- What?
- It's a snake bite.
- Oh, my God.
I'll get a pressure immobilisation,
bandage and a splint.
Mate, you didn't say
anything about a snake.
- I thought it was a stick.
- Most people do.
Zoe, it's not your fault.
Is it too late? Has the venom spread?
We're not even sure it is envenomated.
He might still be sick
from the head injury,
so we'll get him straight to hospital,
and he'll get all the
scans he needs, alright?
- Oh.
- Zoe? Zoe? Zoe.
Why don't we go pack a
bag for Otis for the plane?
No, I don't want to leave him.
What he needs right now
are his things sorted for a
few nights in hospital, OK.
So do you want to show
me where that is? Come on.
Just watch your step.
I'll do a full neuro.
OK, Jill Carey will have
antivenom. You want me to call 'em?
No. We'll get him
straight to Dubbo for a CT.
We'll get antivenom there.
But Dubbo is an hour further.
He needs it as soon as possible.
How would you know? We don't
even know it's definitely a bite.
Alright, just a sec
while you do the neuro.
Where are you going?
Confronting childhood trauma.
- Excuse me a sec.
- Yeah.
Hey, are you OK?
Hey, you. I think we swapped Go Bags.
Did we?
Yeah, and
Well, I opened it. Found my name
playfully addressed on a box.
I was going to tell you.
So how far along are you?
I don't know. Maybe ten weeks.
I'm sorry. I just kept changing
my mind on when to tell you.
I just We always said that
we were fine without them.
Yeah, I know. I guess I was just
surprised by my own reaction.
You know, it's kind of different
when it's not hypothetical, you know?
So you'd be fine to
stop flying for a year?
No. No. And I already
know how you feel about it.
I mean, you've just got
SMO and you've had to choose
between your work and a child before,
so I'm not about to force
you to do that again.
And I certainly don't want our
child having an absent dad like mine
so I just
Sorry. You know that's
not what I meant, right?
No, that's fine.
Hey, listen, I have to go.
Can we Can we chat tonight?
Hey, Zoe. You OK?
No, I can't find Potato.
I can't find him anywhere.
- OK. Potato's a ?
- A little blue bunny. It's a soft toy.
- OK, OK.
- He won't go anywhere without it.
Alright, well, we'll find
it. Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Just take a Just take a minute.
Oh, God. I'm sorry. It's
It's been a really hard year.
Max left and he
He said I wouldn't be
able to manage on my own.
Well, you are managing,
but anxiety is contagious.
Otis will stay calm if you do.
- OK.
- Take a breath.
Hang on.
- Oh, God.
- Yes, we got him.
- Alright. That's great. OK, now we can go.
- Yep.
Where are you, you bastard?
That's a that's a Death Adder.
- It's neurotoxic.
- How can you tell?
It's like a fat head and a little
wormy tail. That's a juvenile.
It's good that it's young.
Juveniles can't control their bite,
so they're much more likely to
envenomate with a bigger dose,
and the Death Adder is one of the
most venomous snakes in the world.
- Perfect.
- Yep.
I'm back, baby. Are we leaving soon?
Right now. Can we get him
on the stretcher, please?
They said 1:30. Wayne!
I've never done a
prisoner transfer before.
This is like a whole
Con Air situation, hey?
Con Air is rubbish.
The crims removed the C-1 23
transponder with their fingers
and swap it into a
light plane as a decoy.
Yeah, it's so weird you don't get
invited to dinner parties, isn't it?
Did Leonie say what's
allowed on the plane for this?
That'd be us. Leonie's
got a month's leave.
What? Since when?
- Last week.
- She never takes leave.
Well, she has now. It was in the roster.
She didn't even mention it.
She mentioned it in the roster.
Or she can have an actual
human conversation with her SMO.
Yeah, well, maybe some things
are more important than work, eh?
What does that mean?
Just, don't be so bloody
righteous all the time.
What's his problem?
Actually, he seems chirpier than usual.
The guy said he's a lifer,
which is, like, only
for, like, murder, right?
- What do you reckon he did?
- We don't need to know.
G'day, Calvin. How are you?
Pilot Graeme. That's flight
nurse Matty. That's Dr. Yates.
Batons and cuffs are fine.
Capsicum spray, box please.
Geez. Not huge, are they?
Not the size that
counts. Wheels up in five.
So should we
um, expect any issues.
Suspect him when you
least expect it, mate.
They'll try anything to get anything.
Wounds are much more
superficial than advertised.
That's good news. G'day,
Troy. My name is Matty.
I'll be your flight nurse
slash air steward for today.
A bit of a bit of a biff
in the old prison yard, was it?
Sorry. Don't know why I've said that.
Can I get a smoke before we go?
Oh, sorry. Yeah. Oxygen,
fuel tanks. Not a good mix.
- I really need a smoke.
- Let's get him a smoke.
Mate, you don't give us any grief,
you can have this when we land, alright?
I'll give Jill Carey a
call about the antivenom.
No, we're still headed
straight to Dubbo.
But I showed you the photo.
Yes. And we can't be
positive that the symptoms
are from the bite or
from the head injury.
He has significant swelling over
his forehead and facial weakness.
From the ptosis, from the
neurotoxicity from the bite.
Possibly. Or from the head injury.
I just I really think
this is envenomation.
And we'll get the anti-venom in Dubbo.
Yeah, which is an hour further
away. He's got descending paralysis.
40% of people have an adverse
reaction to the polyvalent.
What if we get stuck on the airstrip?
We just give him adrenaline.
What if we get halfway to Dubbo and
he goes into respiratory failure?
- Then we intubate him.
- Mid-air?
Better that than discovering
he has a major head trauma
with no proper imaging equipment
and no neurosurgical team in
the middle of nowhere again.
But he doesn't. I'm sorry.
Eliza, honestly, I know less
than you about pretty much
every subject on the
planet, right, except snakes.
This is an envenomated bite.
This kid needs anti-venom
as soon as possible.
OK, fine.
But we pick it up on the tarmac
- and head straight to Dubbo.
- Yep.
Feeling sick.
We can give you something for
that. Matty, four of ondas.
- Can I sit up?
- Just do what they tell you.
You can sit up.
There we go.
Where are we?
Going over Kurranda, I believe.
Thought so.
Used to camp near here with my
daughter when she was little,
up Nindigully Creek.
My old man lived at Nindigully for years.
How old's your daughter.
This is it her fault, really?
She's about to have a baby.
I was making a rocking
horse or trying to.
Never much of a carpenter.
The thought that counts, eh?
I've got a life sentence.
Thoughts are cheap, time counts.
- You've got kids?
- Yeah.
Hey, don't feel too sorry for him.
No-one forced him to pull the trigger.
Didn't ask for sympathy.
Graeme, have we got enough
fuel for a little detour
over Nindigully Creek.
Well, yeah, but
- You want to have a closer look?
- Really?
Hang on. I'm the PIC.
I'll make that call.
Sorry, I thought you just said that
Technically, we have enough fuel.
Well, then, technically,
then we have enough fuel
for a five-minute flyover.
Well, because he's got a
penetrating injury, a life sentence,
and this is probably the last time
he'll ever set foot on a plane.
He probably should have
thought of that, eh?
OK. No worries. As you were.
Fine. Five minutes.
Much appreciated.
Hey, wait. What are we doing?
I'll take five minutes.
Excuse me, little miss. What
time does the tour start?
No, don't joke now. I
know it off by heart.
Who said I was joking.
What time do you go in?
Johnny's with Chaya till
two, so I got time if you do.
Invented by Alfred Trager in 1927,
the Trager pedal radio was actually
powered using bicycle pedals,
communication in the bush,
allowing remote families
to call The Flying Doctor,
attend the School of the Air,
or engage in local gossip with
the very popular Galah Sessions.
That's bloody good. Is that
off the top of your head?
Yeah, I heard my mum give
that talk so many times.
You're impressive. Do you know that?
Shut up.
Hey, isn't it almost two?
You've got to go to your
appointment with Chaya.
- I don't have one.
- What?
Yeah, I'm just here
to pick up Johnny boy.
He's the one seeing
Chaya. I told you that.
I thought we had a deal, Cameron.
Well, I hope Jonny's feeling better.
Look at that.
Never seen it from up here before.
It's better than I remember.
Where'd you used to camp?
Oh. Up near the Cascades where
- (CRASH!)
- Bugger.
What's wrong? Was that window cracked?
No, everything's alright.
This This happens all the time.
We're we're OK.
Yeah, we're We're OK right, Graeme?
Less chat, please, and
stay seated for this one.
If explosive decompression
occurs you'll want your belt on.
I'm just going to swap sides.
Stay seated.
Now due to an unscheduled detour
which struck a very unlucky bird,
fracturing the windscreen,
I think structurally we're OK,
but visibility is compromised.
So I'm going to find an alternate.
You have five minutes
to secure the cabin,
and prep for an emergency landing.
Yep. Securing the cabin.
Hey, what's going on?
Everything is under control.
This happens all the time.
I'm just going to secure the cabin
and prepare you all for
an emergency landing.
Oh, emergency landing doesn't
sound very under control.
Oh, no, it's just It's just protocol.
Alright. I'm going to show you
guys the brace position, OK?
Oh, God.
Possible damage to the elevator.
I suppose you have
somebody to pick you up.
I'm just asking, do you
have someone to pick you up?
I'm from Broken Hill.
I'll be transported
back home by the RFDs.
Is it OK if I take this in with me?
Well, not usually, but
Why don't I put it just next to the bed?
- Thank you. Thanks.
- See ya.
There's definitely a scratch.
That's just one of the perks, isn't it,
of riding on dirt roads
in the back of a ute?
Well, I did want the full
Australian experience.
How's the polyvalent?
Yeah, half the bag's
through. BPs 115 on 65.
He's doing well, but that's all
I can do for you, Captain Jack.
This is ridiculous.
How long does it take to work?
It can be hard to predict
but we'll know soon enough.
G'day, mate. Hey, how are you going?
Hi, Otis. I turned into a
pirate while you were asleep.
What do you think? Does it suit me?
Smiling. That's really good.
It's a very good sign. Good boy.
It means the paralysis is lifting.
- So it's working?
- Yes.
The anti-venom is
counteracting the neurotoxins.
You hear that, Oti? The medicine's
working. You're going to be OK.
Oi, Otis.
If Spider-Man got his
powers from a spider bite,
you think you might get
something too, huh, snake boy?
What do you reckon?
His breathing is laboured. Recheck BP.
I'm just going to listen
to your chest, Otis.
Diffuse wheeze.
Zoe, does he have a history of asthma?
No. No, wait What's happening.
Eliza? Urticaria on the arm.
BP's just dropped to 60 on 40.
It's anaphalaxis.
- What?
- Stop the infusion.
Yes, I have 0.2mg of adrenaline. Ready?
Let's get him on oxygen with a
salbutamol nib and a bolus of fluid.
Are you alright to see?
- Yeah.
- Yeah, yeah.
OK, Otis. You're going to
get a small jab in your leg.
It's just a little sting.
OK. Adrenaline in.
Let's see if that helps.
- You're going to be OK, Oti.
- There we go.
And the rash is improving. That's great.
OK. BP is improved.
Oh, no. Otis? Ptosis is back. Otis.
Otis, can you open your
eyes for me, please?
- Start the antivenom again.
- What? What about the anaphylaxis?
We need to treat that and the
envenomation at the same time.
I'm going to run an IV adrenaline
infusion at 18 mics per minute.
Sorry. What are we watching for?
We need to see the paralysis
and the anaphylaxis resolve.
Anything above 80
systolic is good enough.
Mama's right here, baby. Mama's
right here. I'm right here.
BP's 55 systolic.
Running the adrenaline.
Come on, little man. Come on.
- BP's 85.
Otis, can you open your eyes for me?
Hey, baby. It's Mama. It's
Mama. Just open your eyes.
Otis, open your eyes.
Open your eyes. Otis, come on.
Oh, good boy.
Thank you. Good boy. Good boy.
Alright, rash is going down too.
The anti-venom is through.
Let's stop the adrenaline now.
Did it work? Is he OK?
He's going to need some
further care and some scans,
but he's doing really well.
What do you reckon, Otis?
Not bad for a pirate.
Oh, my
Righto, ACC have found us a strip
at Amberley Downs, 200km from Dubbo.
Had to ask for a bloody detour.
I didn't ask you to
fly into a bird, Graeme.
Cockpit closed.
Snowflake neo-marxist.
See, this is what happens when
you go soft on scum like him.
- I'll give you a complaint form when we land.
- If we bloody land.
OK, I found an airstrip, but
the floods came through here,
so it might be a bit soft.
- Have they run it?
- In a one-tonne ute.
Yeah, we'll see how we
go in a 5.5-tonne plane.
What's going on?
Good news. They found us an airstrip
so we'll be landing soon, OK?
Just get us down, please.
- Isn't this funny?
- A bit.
We're about to die. What
are you laughing about?
- Shorter life sentence.
You know what he did?
He killed two people.
And you go and take him on a joyride.
This is what happens when
you snowflakes go soft
for animals like him.
"Soft." Says a man shitting
himself over a bumpy flight.
And you work the chicken runs, so
don't pretend you're the top guy.
Shut your mouth.
Or what? We're gonna die.
What are you going to do?
- No one is dying today, alright.
Here we go.
- I can't breathe.
- No, you're OK.
- I can't breathe.
- Just take some deep breaths, alright?
- Look at me. Deep breaths.
- Can't breathe.
Just calm down. Stay seated, Calvin.
I think I'm having a heart attack.
Try and stay calm, Calvin. Stay seated.
Just take deep breaths for me, OK?
Help me.
Keep looking at me. Keep
breathing. Keep breathing.
When we get out of
here, you stay with Troy.
I'm going to go in with these
two to the hospital for handover,
make sure everything's alright, OK?
And get yourself checked out.
- I'm fine.
- Just get checked out.
We'll get your key in,
we'll see you at the hotel.
Actually, now that we're
all headed to Dubbo,
you both might want to
join me at the hospital.
What for?
It's about Leonie.
- You right, mate?
Calvin, just try and calm your
breathing for me, mate, OK?
I am breathing. I know how to breathe.
Look, just
Calvin, you could be
having a heart attack, OK?
- I need to do some tests.
- OK.
- You're OK.
Give us your hand. Give us your hand.
- You're doing alright.
Alright, your BP is OK, but
your heart's racing at 220.
Am I having a heart attack?
No, it's not a heart attack.
It's something called SVT.
So what I need you to do
is block your nose and blow
like you're trying to clear your ears.
- What?
- It's called a valsalva manoeuvre.
No, no, no, no. I'm not
doing you bush medicine.
Get me a real doctor, yeah?
We got a signal?
- Any word?
- Not yet.
No, Mira's following up. How's Otis?
Much better.
His vitals are stable
and he just needs to get
it out of his system now.
Yeah, I was pretty
uncomfy after I got bitten.
Nate was nice to me for about a week,
then went back to beating
the snot out of me.
How's your eye, did you get it checked?
I will later. Please. It's just,
it's feeling much better now.
MAN: Hey, love
- Oh.
- Come here.
It happened to your left eye, didn't it?
- So I guess I was right about the anaphylaxis.
- Righto.
He didn't go into respiratory
arrest so we can call it a draw.
It's just a little scratch.
It's Graeme.
Is everything all right?
Eliza, got Wayne for you.
Eliza, I got a
30-something male with SVT,
probably brought on from anxiety.
I want to try valsalva.
Any chance you can
convince him to do it?
Why can't you?
I think he needs a whiter opinion.
Does he just? Put him on?
Calvin, the doc.
Baz, can I borrow the esky?
I'm Dr. Harrod.
And what you've been asked to do
is called a valsalva manoeuvre,
and it's the best choice,
given your heart rhythm,
to stop you losing consciousness.
He's got me blowing up balloons.
I'm having a heart attack, yeah.
No, you're having heart
issues triggered by stress,
and you're fortunate enough
to be having them with one of
the best retrieval doctors in
the whole of New South Wales.
But if you choose to ignore him,
then it's your heart on the line.
So if you want to refuse treatment,
I need you to sign that form, OK?
Because your heart rate's 220
and I don't want to be
sued when it explodes.
No, no, no, no, no, no, OK.
- So I have your consent to treat it.
- Yes. Just help me.
Alright, well, you got two options:
One is an injection of adenosine,
might give you a sense
of impending doom.
You probably don't
need any more of that.
- What I'd recommend is
- Just fix it, yeah?
What? Ho, ho, ho, ho.
- There you go. Back to sinus.
Did Wayne just ice bucket him?
I believe so. Thanks for the
advice, Doc. Very helpful.
Eliza, something's happened with
Leonie. They've nicked the vessel.
Leonie. What's going on? You in Dubbo?
Yeah, just Anything
available. Alright.
Nothing. No planes.
Why didn't Leonie tell me?
She didn't want anyone to worry.
Now she's all alone
in bloody open surgery
while we're giving joyrides
to convicted bloody murderers.
I'm sorry, Graeme. I had no idea, OK.
I can't get a plane from anywhere.
It's OK. Alright, we'll get there.
We'll go with the cops into town
and head to Dubbo first thing.
No. 35 years I haven't pulled rank once.
I don't care if it's a car,
bus or bloody dune buggy,
we're getting to Dubbo tonight.
Fair enough.
have one new message.
Hi, Dr. Stanley from RFDS
Clinical Governance calling here
in regard to the failed airway at
White Cliffs Rodeo a few weeks ago.
I just wanted to inform you
a critical incident review
has been launched into the event,
so I was hoping to get a
statement from you, thanks.
You should go get some sleep.
So should you.
I don't have to fly a $9 million
sardine tin in the morning.
Hey, thank you for your
help today with Zoe.
Oh, that's OK.
I've got a fair bit of experience
with anxiety riddled mothers.
Do you still talk to her?
Actually, I usually just call Leonie.
I'm going to get some food.
Do you guys want anything?
- No.
- Nah.
So we're just going to avoid
talking about this forever.
- What?
- England. The trip that wasn't.
Oh. Well, what's to say?
Anything at all would be preferable
to this excruciating silence.
You called it off. It's alright.
I asked you for more time.
Well, you know, my leave was
booked. That's the time I had.
And I had things going
on. I told you that.
And then you just ghosted me.
But things you say You never
said what those things were, did you?
To me, it felt like a
pretty clear exit strategy.
Or you could have trusted me.
Hi. How is she?
Still no word.
How'd you get here?
Graeme went full diva on ACC. It
was sick. You should have seen it.
- WAYNE: Is Mira here?
- Cafeteria.
I mean One minute I'm excited,
the next minute I'm
completely terrified.
It would change everything,
completely handbrake our careers.
How do you really feel about it?
Excited and terrified.
But if you're ten weeks,
we don't have to make any
big decisions just yet, right?
And there might be other
reasons we can't do it anyway,
so why don't we just wait and see?
What about Layla?
Mira? It's done.
They got everything and
stemmed the bleeding.
So what animals haven't
you hit? There's the deer
- There's been a horse, a roo.
- Well, now there's the owl.
I know what animal I'd like to hit.
It can't have been an owl
because they don't fly that high.
Looked like an owl. Mopoke, maybe.
Don't forget the goat.
What are you all doing here?
I didn't want to bother you.
- No, zero bother, mate.
- There you are.
You had us all worried. I
feel like a total dickhead.
I'm sorry.
If you're all here,
where are the planes?
Graeme decided to leave
Kilo at Nindigully.
- It was your detour.
- What?
- Yeah, might owe you 20 grand for a new windscreen.
- Oh.
Oh, here. Sounds like
you need it more than me.
How do you feel?
