Trauma s01e14 Episode Script


This feels wrong.
Ten thousand kinds of wrong.
He's just showing off.
Why does he got to do my probie duty better than me? Glenn, everyone did their probie duties better than you.
Come on.
And I say that with love.
I feel like I'm watching Nicholson in Cuckoo's Nest, post-lobotomy.
How do you like your new partner? Okay.
Okay, Rabbit, they're organized.
They're good, okay? Just What are you doing? Why are you putting up with this? I'm on probation and this is what probies do.
Probies don't obsess over donuts and line up the coffee cups.
Want a donut? Do you not find that kind of weird? I find that kind of weird.
I'm not gonna lie.
This is humiliating, Rabbit.
Marisa, this is my last chance, okay? I screw up, I'm gone, so washing rigs and lining up papers is a lot less humiliating than losing my job.
Did you spit in this? I spat in that one.
All right, 14 gauge, large-bore IVs.
Ah, check.
Normal saline bag? Gold star.
Okay, 7.
5 ET tubes? That would be a smiley face.
So listen, I was thinking Oh, that's always a bad sign.
Did Boone just make a funny? You just made a joke, not a very good one.
But, however, I was thinking now that we're both medics, dual medics, the whole equality thing, maybe, I don't know, you could drive every once in a while? Nope.
No, huh? Just That's it? No? No discussion about it? Nope.
Well, how about this? Maybe I could at least take the lead on some of the calls, set the pacing.
Lubricating jelly? Come on, man.
Don't Don't make me do this.
Why are you doing this to me, man? You know I didn't bust my ass to be a paramedic to still be treated like an EMT, man.
Dude, man, this is not about titles and certificates, this is about seniority.
Don't I treat you like a partner? No, no, you do not treat me like a partner.
You treat me like a sidekick.
What? That's how you treat me.
Yeah, like Sancho Panza.
It's literature, this There's words in it, you read it.
Look, I just don't want to be treated like a comic relief, okay? But you are a comic relief.
I I want to be Batman, too.
I can be Batman.
I don't have to be Robin all the time.
You mean like dress up in a cape? That And a hood? See, I've never Whatever you do in your personal life is totally up to you.
And I'm cool with it.
Can I at least pick the music? No.
Smiley face.
Medic 114, respond Code Three.
Auto-ped, officer down, corner of 8th and Jefferson.
Hang in there, buddy.
They're on their way.
Just lie still, all right? Guy was heading northbound.
Eyewitness said he walked over that way.
These guys look pissed.
Well, of course.
He's one of their own.
You said that the driver left the scene? Yeah, yeah.
He was here, he just walked away.
Okay, guys, thank you, I got it.
We got it from here.
What's his name? It's Earl.
Earl Moffitt.
Earl? Hey, Earl? Earl? Can you hear me? No, no, he didn't stop.
He just plowed right through the intersection, right into him.
He was aiming at him.
Aiming at him? Earl, can you talk? No, we need to get him an airway, so load and go.
You got a C spine? Yeah.
That's good, okay.
All right, Earl.
Hang in there.
Hang in there, buddy.
This is so weird.
What's going on here? Officer down! Everyone back, get down! Shots fired! Take cover! We've got to get him out of here, Glenn.
Go, go, go! Officers down, request assistance! Looks like a battlefield down there.
It's not combat, Marisa.
All fire department and police personnel be advised.
Preliminary reports indicate that there is a sniper in the area.
Subject appears to be targeting fire, police and EMS.
Yeah, it is.
It sure is a battlefield.
Man, I can't stop the bleeding.
Here, take this.
I got it.
There's a lot of damage.
That entrance wound can't be more than two centimeters.
Yeah, but there's a baseball-sized cavity behind it.
This guy's going to need IV and G2 prophylaxis and I'm worried we're not gonna make it.
You think it's infected? Here, take that.
Well, the missile took part of the badge with it, so there's a piece of metal lodged in his chest.
All right, guys, you got him? Ready? Okay, one, two, three.
You think maybe the shooter was aiming for the badge? All right, what have we got? Whoa, whoa.
One patient, one handoff.
Try it again.
He's got a rigid abdomen.
BP's 114 over 65.
Pulse, 80.
Arrest, 20.
All right, one, two, three.
And TCS, 14.
TCS, 14, got it.
Get the door! Man, and I thought we had tension.
Angel Rescue 2 climbing up to 600.
We are five minutes out, going to City.
She a cop? Yeah, she's a cop.
The shooter just took down a firefighter and another cop.
What? Yep.
One for good.
They find the shooter? No, not yet.
Okay, guys, give us space, okay? Clear the way.
Clear the way.
Coming through, guys, coming through! Coming through! Come on, guys, you're holding us up.
All non-medical personnel out of the trauma ward now! I've got SFPD with a GSW from a high-energy weapon.
Long range, high velocity, through and through from his left sternum to his right groin.
It went through half his body? Oh, yeah.
Prep for surgery.
You have the bullet? No, the cops took it.
It was about the size of my damn finger.
It would be nice to have the size and caliber of the weapon.
Why? So I can prep for the next batch of victims coming in.
Everybody's thinking about it.
Snipers don't usually hit just once.
Was he shooting at you? Yeah.
Nearby, yeah.
Why are you so calm? I don't know.
It's surreal, it's Be careful out there.
Yeah, always.
I will.
No, no, I mean it.
You're worried about me.
Yeah, that's what happens when When what? Well, you know residents don't have time for real relationships.
Oh, so this is a This is a real relationship? Yeah, you seem to like that word today.
No, I just like that you're worried about me, that's all.
Can we go? Before I lose my lunch? I'll be careful, okay? Be careful.
I will.
Not super bright, but he's a lot of fun.
Uh, oh, yeah, yeah.
He's, um, he's very sweet.
That's not exactly what I meant.
Oh, yeah.
I did him.
The sniper is still at large after a midday shooting rampage.
Probie, where's the coffee? Quiet, quiet! Oh, you want me to write you up, huh? Yo, Darnell, let it go.
There are unconfirmed reports that the sniper may have staged the accident in order to bring more police and fire personnel to the scene.
Turn that down and listen up.
I'm sure my information is much more up-to-date than his.
Yes, the shooter is still out there.
Yes, we are all painfully aware that the only people who got shot yesterday were cops and firefighters.
So, let's watch our backs.
If you find yourself in an open area, you could be a target.
So if it doesn't feel right, it probably is not right.
And we are all going to wear these.
That is not a request, it is an order.
We want to be safe on the job.
That is the number one priority.
Now, we spent money we don't have on these Hey, babe.
What's up? What's up? I watched the news, Cameron.
It's not safe out there.
Babe, no, listen, we're taking precautions.
What sort of precautions, Cameron? Well All right.
We're double-checking calls.
We're wearing vests.
Babe, it's all under control.
Nobody's Nobody's freaking out.
I know what you're doing and it's not working.
We both know this guy is out there targeting uniforms.
Danielle just called.
You remember her husband, right? The cop? Well, he's taking his sick days until this is all over.
Cameron? Yeah, I'm here.
I hear you.
So? Babe, listen to me, you cannot ask me to abandon my station.
I can't do that, sweetie.
I'm not asking for me, honey.
I'm asking for the kids.
So they still have a father when they come home from school.
Okay? All right.
All right, I'll do it.
I'll do it, okay? All right, love you.
I've got to go.
Love you.
I love you.
Sela worried? Shoot.
She wanted me to take my sick days.
No judgment here.
And you mean that? Yeah, of course I do.
So why aren't you taking your days off? Honestly, I don't know.
Radio's quiet.
Gosh, I didn't notice.
I want to go up.
What? Let's go up and sweep the rooftops.
Oh, no, no.
Come on, Rabbit.
We can't just sit here while someone takes out our co-workers.
Come on.
Let's go, let's go up and see if we can't spot this creep.
You know why that's not going to happen? Why? Because the cops have already got it covered, it's a stupid idea, and it is a massive breach of protocol.
You're talking to me about protocol? Yeah.
The guy who put blood on an FBI agent? Oh, come on.
And severed some innocent bystander's finger? Yeah, yeah, what? What? Do you understand that's why I got probation? Well, I'm not on probation, so I'm gonna go up.
Oh, you want some probation? I'm going to report you.
You would not report me.
Oh, I will report you.
Make no mistake.
I want the old Rabbit back.
I always thought it would be a lot cooler to wear this vest, but it just makes me think about getting shot.
Well, don't worry.
The guy's pretty good.
He'd probably go for a head shot and you won't even feel it.
Yeah, well, he'd probably go for you first anyway.
Nah, there's a surplus of gay white dudes in the city, so That's not real talk.
You'd cry like a little girl at my funeral.
Ma'am? You call for an ambulance? I think so.
What's your name? Maureen.
Maureen? Okay, labored respirations with a pulse ox of 96%.
Lean back.
Lung sounds are shallow and diminished.
Give her O2, check the sugar and prep naloxone.
Maureen, you having any pain anywhere? Oh, it's awful.
Oh, okay.
My stomach.
Your stomach? Mind if I lift this up and take a look? Okay? No.
Here we go.
Ma'am, your surgery, what was it for? Liver transplant.
Distended belly.
Yeah, ascites.
Ascites? Yellow skin, jaundice.
Her body's rejecting it.
Maureen Maureen, have you been feeling sleepy or nauseous? Yeah.
Nauseous a little bit? Yeah? Okay, her BP's low, Maureen, your blood pressure is pretty low.
Now, I need to start an IV and get you to the hospital, all right? No, I don't want to go out there.
That crazy man, he's shooting people.
You You should be worried.
Ma'am, we'll have you in the ambulance in no time, all right? Yeah.
You're not worried? No.
Why would we worry? We're not.
Then why are you wearing that bulletproof vest? You know, we wear these all the time, actually.
what do you say? You want to take a ride with us? No? I I don't know.
Can you strip a saline bag? Yep, already done.
Can you hang it with the macro drip? Um, I think we should hang the saline with a micro drip.
You think? Yeah, I do.
Can you start a macro drip, please? Look, the problem is that she's in liver failure and the fluid boost may make the hyponatremia worse.
Her brain could herniate Could you just do what I'm telling you to do? When was the last time you read up on this? I just studied it.
Maureen, listen.
If we stay here, you will stop clotting.
Your belly will swell and you will not be able to breathe, okay? You will bleed to death, okay? Does that sound better or worse than going outside? It's better to go, right? Okay.
Okay? Okay.
Good, good.
All right.
Hey, could you get the chair for me? All right, so you're going to feel a little bit of a prick here, okay? I'm going to get this IV going.
And the Lord Jesus said unto us Tall buildings, no trees.
This is just perfect.
Sitting ducks in the middle of Union Square.
Glenn, you're just freaking yourself out.
You're freaking me out.
Stop it.
Yeah, I think I'm going to have a heart attack.
Sir, are you having chest pains? You're still having chest pains? Okay.
He's faking.
He knows I have him in checkmate in seven moves.
And I've got you in four.
Sir, please, just try to relax, okay? I'm just going to put these on you.
Okay, just breathe deeply for me.
We'll just have a look and see how it's all going.
You have any allergies? No? Can you start a line? Yeah.
Glenn, the line, come on.
Okay, sir, you're having a heart attack.
A real one.
I'm going to have to take you to the hospital.
Glenn, come on, I'll do it in the rig.
I can do it.
I can do it.
I'll set it up.
No, come on.
Let's get him on the gurney.
On three.
One, two, three.
I got you.
Seven moves, Herschel.
Don't you forget it.
In your dreams, Sid.
Little hard to work like this.
Yeah, well, just focus on the job and nothing else.
Yeah, right.
Do you have anything on that shooter? Joe? Yeah, I got a low pulse here.
I don't know.
Can we please get some more nurses down here to help with triage? Called up to the floors.
Thank you.
Am I missing something? It's not New Year's Eve, is it? Paramedics are nervous.
Tell me about it.
So nervous they're not treating on scene.
Every call's turning into a load and go.
Okay, well, this guy's legit.
He's 75 years old, he's got acute chest pains.
Take a number.
He's an acute MI, Joe.
He can't wait.
In case you hadn't noticed, we're a little overloaded right now.
We cannot hold the wall with this one.
Half of these people could have been treated on scene, the other half are coming in here without proper protocol for their complaints, completely unstable and then, boom, you're gone.
How can I do my job if you're not going to do yours? Listen to yourself.
You haven't got a sniper breathing down your neck.
Look, Joe, I'm trying to do my job.
All right.
All right.
We all are.
What have you got? Okay, his name's Herschel, He's got acute chest pains.
He's tachycardic at 120Ipalp.
Hypotensive at 70 over 50.
I've administered NS, O2, nitro.
He's about as stable as you're going to get him.
Find him a bed.
You got it? Okay.
I got it.
Little overwhelming, huh? Did you sleep with Nurse Jane? What? Did you sleep with Nurse Jane? Um Yeah.
Di Di, listen.
When? A while ago.
How long is a while ago? When you were busy flirting with Rabbit, around that time.
That's it? Yeah.
Okay, wait.
Let me get this straight, residents can't have real relationships, but you can still get jealous, is that it? I'm not jealous.
Then what are you? I'll get back to you on that.
Be careful.
So let me guess, Sela asked you to blow off work, right? Right? You tapping my calls now? Hey, no judgment here, all right? I wish people would stop saying that.
Pair of medics.
Shut up.
You knock, she might hear the seniority.
The house looks empty.
Hey, dispatch, this is 78.
Can you confirm that address at 715 Steiner, please? Hey, Boone.
Copy that, 78.
What? There's a "for sale" sign.
Call taken confirms Ah! Get behind the rig! Move! Let's go.
Area is swept and secured.
Our sniper's long gone, sir.
Have forensics search the area and see if he can find any shell casings, anything.
Copy that.
When you guys arrived on scene, did you notice anything unusual here? Uh, not at first.
And when you went to the door, how long was it before the first shot was fired? Boone? Uh, maybe about a minute? And the shots were fired from where? Right up there.
This guy's definitely swatting.
He's calling 9-1-1 and luring cops and paramedics.
We'll run a check on this and see if we can get a break on it.
The peaceful landmark of Alamo Square was broken today as the sniper struck again.
This time right next to the Painted Ladies.
Residents responded to what they thought were firecrackers going off.
Two San Francisco paramedics seemed to be the targets.
Oh, my God.
Hey, Tyler, you okay? You okay? We was watching y'all on TV, man.
I'm so sorry.
You sure you're all right? Yeah, no, I'm good.
I'm good.
Yeah, I got I got to go.
Ty, did you see him? Did you see him? No.
Oh, man.
Hey, Captain.
You all right? I'm trying.
What about Tyler? Uh, the scariest thing is he's actually quiet.
Hey, look, Captain, I wanted to just ask you something.
Just, it'll be quick.
Um Yeah.
Hold up.
Yeah, look, I don't know.
I don't know.
We're already short three shifts.
I got six EMTs out sick.
Well, maybe they got an itch to go see the wine country.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Look, no, I understand, but let me get back to you.
All right? Yeah.
So? Huh? What's going on, Cameron? Nothing.
Uh, actually, never mind.
You came in here just to say never mind? Yeah, you're busy, so I can wait.
You just got shot at on the job.
It ain't going to wait.
Come on, what do you need? Never mind, I just wanted to say I could cover any of those shifts for you.
I can do a double.
I'll let you know, Cameron.
Well, all right.
I'll let you know.
Yeah, yeah.
Excuse me.
You got some sort of aspirin, ibuprofen, numbing something? Now, don't let Jane get to you.
Get to me how? You know, about Glenn.
She's getting territorial, letting you know she'd been there first.
So the nurses are talking about this? Yeah.
I really don't know what to say about that.
But you've got to admit, though, Glenn is fun.
This isn't happening.
Of course, not even on the same planet as Rabbit.
Oh, this really isn't happening.
Hey, this is Joy, Assisted Living Center.
Shortness of breath, abdominal pain.
Doctor Langham at the center thinks it might be intestinal blockage.
Oh, dear.
Dear is right.
Come on, we'll get you fixed.
You'll be just fine.
Looks like you've got some smoothing over to do.
Look, I'm really confused here.
I mean, these are all things that happened Things? That's what you're calling them? Before we even had a conversation, Diana.
Glenn, flat out, how many nurses in this hospital have you slept with? Can we talk about this some other time? No, we can't.
I'm not a badge bunny, I'm not some sort of random hookup.
I don't I never treated you like a badge bunny or like a random hookup.
You were the one that said you don't have time for a real relationship, right? I also don't want to have to treat myself for a thousand STDs.
That's not cool.
You know what? Maybe it's easier if we just don't have a real relationship.
Be careful out there.
Ah, let's go, brother.
Man, chest pains and shortness of breath.
Bet five bucks, heart attack or heartburn.
Hurry up, pick.
Uh, I'll go with heart attack.
Oh, you feeling lucky, huh, punk? Always am.
Hey, did you call for a paramedic? Nah, man.
Anybody call for a paramedic? Leo, this don't feel right.
You're right, man.
Something's not right.
Leo! Control, this is Medic 476! I have a medic down.
Shots fired at Civic Plaza.
I repeat, shots fired at Civic Plaza.
Leo! I really should take a spin and check the rooftops.
I wouldn't bother.
Cops have got it covered and I can't see a thing.
Oh, you were looking, weren't you? Yeah, I was looking.
Let's get down there.
Nancy, Nancy! Come here.
Come on, the scene's not secure.
Somebody help us! You heard the man, right? Come on.
Look, I'm sorry.
Somebody! We have to get in closer, they're still too far away to tell how bad they are.
No, they're not.
Leo's dying here.
I know.
I know.
Look, I'm sorry.
Look, the SWAT's checking all the buildings.
As soon as they give me the okay, you guys can go in.
Stop, get back.
Sergeant Ray, report to car 432.
I'm on my way.
Now you two stay put, just stay here.
Stay here while they lay there? Yes, stay right there! PD hasn't secured the scene yet.
Get us out of here now! Stay put! Stay put! Get him to stay down! Nobody go out there! Alpha Team, go! Alpha Team, go! Get back.
I can't keep watching this.
He's torturing him.
Yeah, but every shot is revealing his position.
SWAT's searching, they'll get him.
Yeah, before one of them dies? Here, give me your walkie.
Ray? Ray, it's Nancy.
Can you hear me? Roger that, over.
You're going to need a tourniquet to stop that bleeding.
But I can't get to you, so I'm just going to talk you through how to make one for yourself, okay? Okay.
Now, you guys stay put.
Don't move unless it's on my order, all right? Okay, can you take your belt off? That's great, Ray, you're doing great.
You know I've got at least 10 medics that can get in that APC.
That armored carrier could work as a shield.
I know that, but right now it's spoken for.
They're going after the shooter.
If we don't get him, the bodies just pile up.
Okay, good.
Now you're going to have to tie that around your leg about three inches above the wound.
Can you do that? Really tight, Ray, you're going to have to strap it really, really tight.
You're doing great, Ray.
Sniper's not going to let him.
Ray, can you hear me? Rabbit.
What are you doing? Rabbit.
Rabbit, don't even think about it, okay? You know how this works, right? That is exactly what the sniper wants you to do.
He wants you to go out there, play hero and you become a victim yourself.
It destroys morale and keeps the enemy scared.
Ray? Ray! Rabbit? Rabbit.
Damn it.
Guys! What the hell's he doing? Rabbit! Hey! Reuben, get Get the hell out of that truck.
He's gonna use the rig as a shield.
I think we have a location.
East of the park, half a block down.
All SWAT personnel collapse on the target building.
That idiot Rabbit's going to help us find him.
Just hold tight a little longer.
Come on, come on, come on.
Whoa! Damn it.
Leo, Leo.
Talk to me.
Right thigh, left shoulder.
Nancy? You are one crazy man.
Subject's down, repeat, subject's down.
Scene is secure, we're going to need a medic up here.
Medic 114 responding.
You got away with it this time, but you better get that guy under control.
Do you realize how he compromised this whole situation? We will take care of it.
You understand me? We'll take care of it.
Work on it! Darnell! Is he gone, Rabbit? Yeah, SWAT got him.
Here you go, hold onto it.
Hold onto it.
Got it.
Hey, we got it, we got it.
We got it.
We got it.
Look out.
Right here, buddy, hey.
Ray? All right.
He's unresponsive.
Okay, we got an entrance wound to the upper shoulder, blood loss of about He's a load and go.
All right.
Do you think we should use saline bolus? You asking me a medical question? Yeah.
Yeah, I do.
All right, we're ready.
We've got you, buddy.
Thanks, guys, I got it.
Don't bother.
He's gone.
Huh? That man's breathing.
We're treating him.
What are you What are you That man is dead.
He was dead when you got here.
Hey! If we leave him, it makes us no better than he is, you no better than him.
Is that what you want? Can you unclip him? Sir, can you hear me? Roll him over.
Okay, we'll get him on a mask, start an IV.
That's it.
Just keep breathing.
Well, it's been nice working with you, Rabbit.
Yeah, right.
I hope it was worth it.
Please get me the hell out of here! Here we go! We've got a gunshot! This is Ray! Code Yellows are here! Let's go! All right, surgery ready? Very.
Looks like free drinks at The Cove tonight.
Well, I guess I'll be passing on that.
Yeah, I heard.
At least you went out in a blaze of glory.
So, sniper coded? On the way in.
The name's John Morse.
A SWAT sniper from Ontario.
No motive yet.
Yeah, well, trust me, not everything has a reason, you know? Hey, I know we're talking about Rabbit here, but I still can't believe he drove that rig into the middle of a firefight.
Basra's going to can him.
You going to be okay? Not really.
Here, give me this.
Looks like you should go talk to Florence Nightingale over there.
Are you glaring at me or is this one of those awkward silences? Awkward silence.
That's good, I guess.
Di, I just want Glenn, I don't care how many nurses you've slept with.
I You don't You don't care now? Well Well, I do.
I just, um That was You know, that was in the past and I can't change that and I just I just don't want you to sleep with any more nurses or doctors or patients or strippers or whatever.
Yeah, um I just I just want you to sleep with one overworked, overstressed, slightly neurotic resident exclusively.
If you're still interested.
Well, I Yes.
Yeah? So Come here.
Hey, can you grab the saline bag? Sure.
Here you Thanks.
Huh? What did you What did you just say? I said thanks.
Thank you for what? What are you thanking me for? You did a good job.
That was really an impressive call on the transplant rejection.
I was pissed because I was off my game.
But, you know, gratitude to you because you caught it.
I got to say, you make me a better paramedic.
Look, starting tomorrow, me and you are dual medics.
Every day, all day.
Ebony and ivory.
That's right.
Peanut butter and jelly.
That is awesome, my friend.
That's right.
All right.
Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Where you going? We got restocking here.
What? You just said we were equals.
Yeah, but I also said starting tomorrow.
Smiley face.
All right.
All right.
You did Why are you even bothering, babe? Last moments of a condemned man, I don't know.
Might as well finish what I started.
Come on.
Reuben, my office.
Well, I guess this is it, huh? Yeah.
You just couldn't help yourself, could you? Nope.
Hey, listen to me.
What you did today was one of the most brave, most beautiful and most stupid things I've ever seen anyone do.
But that is exactly why I love you.
Okay? I don't know what I'm going to do if I can't do this.
I know.
I know, and I don't either.
But We're going to figure that out, okay? I got to I got to go.
I got to do this.
Sorry, boss.
I couldn't just watch those men die, you know? Yeah.
I know.
Darnell, Leo, Ray, they're all going to pull through thanks to you.
You've always been fair to me, Captain.
I do appreciate it.
You saved three badges.
Nobody is going to pull your certificate.
Not in this department or any other.
Just ain't going to happen.
Not even to you.
Pick up your card.
No smart-ass comments, no gloating.
Take your card, get the hell out of here.
Thank you, sir.
