[There was yet another school shooting in Chicago. Police sirens and
smoke is all around. A medical helicopter lands at the scene. Peter Benton
and Luka Kovac get out of the helicopter carrying medical kits. As soon as
they get out, a police officer runs towards them.] POLICE
OFFICER: Three gunshots. One looks fatal. BENTON: You should have let us
land ten minutes ago! POLICE OFFICER: Suspect was pinned down, he was still
firing. KOVAC: He was shooting at the school?! POLICE OFFICER: They were
shooting everywhere. You know, we were responding to an armour truck
robbery. The suspect opened fire. BENTON: [Benton sees a victim] I'll take
[Benton arrives to the victim, who is a young boy shot in the head. He
is alert, but obviously in pain. The boy's glasses are on the ground
beside him, cracked and bloody.] BOY: [Panicking] Where are my
glasses? Where are my glasses? POLICE OFFICER: His name's Daniel.
BENTON: Daniel? Do you know where you are? DANIEL: [Ignoring
Benton] I lost my glasses! BENTON: Can you tell me where you are?
DANIEL: School. PARAMEDIC: Exit wound out the right temple.
[Kovac comes to a little girl who was also shot in the head. A
police officer is giving her CPR. There is a pool of blood around her.]
KOVAC: What kind of ammunition were they using? POLICE
OFFICER: One had a large calibre assault rifle to school through the
engine block. KOVAC: We'll never get her back with a head wound like
that. Stop compressions!
[Kovac finds another victim who is a young boy. He is bleeding hard
from several gunshot wounds.] BOY: [Afraid] My dad. Somebody call my
dad! KOVAC: I'm Dr. Kovac, what's your name? BOY: [Scared]
Nicholas. KOVAC: Take a deep breath Nicholas. NICHOLAS:
[Breathing profusely] Could you call my dad? Dr. Kovac he works at
Collad 812-54... PARAMEDIC: How's he doin'? KOVAC:
Chest is clear, good radio pulse. Five eight four of morphine.
NICHOLAS: [Trying to remember his father's work phone number]
54...548... KOVAC: Don't worry, I'm sure the school has it.
POLICE OFFICER: That could take a while. We're evacuating out of the
front of the building. KOVAC: Why? POLICE OFFICER: We've
appreciated two suspects. There might be another one. KOVAC: MIGHT
[Benton is running through the school yard approaching Kovac, the
paramedic, the police officer and Nicholas.] KOVAC: Can you feel
your leg? NICHOLAS: Kinda. It's like going to sleep. KOVAC:
Like pins and needles? NICHOLAS: Yeah. BENTON: Where are the
paramedics? POLICE OFFICER: We're waving them though now.
BENTON: Do ya got any anasef? PARAMEDIC: Right back side
pocket. KOVAC: Is yours stable by ground? BENTON: Should be.
Bullet fracture, missed the brain. What about yours? KOVAC: Gone
through the shoulder but there's one through the groin with a cold
[Guns start firing as the suspect comes out of the school shooting his
gun.] POLICE OFFICER: Okay, clear out! KOVAC: What?!
POLICE OFFICER: Go now! He's in the building coming out!
[Benton runs to safety as shots are still being fired. Kovac covers
Nicholas and the paramedic with his body as the suspect shoots towards
them. A sharp shooter then shoots the suspect. Benton and Kovac stare at each
other in shock.]
[A small crowd surrounds the wounded suspect. Benton is there because
he has to attempt to save the man's life. The sharp shooter searches the
suspect.] BENTON: Let me examine him. POLICE OFFICER: We
have to search him first. BENTON: Is he still breathing?
SHARP SHOOTER: Yeah...he's clear! POLICE OFFICER: All right,
come in. BENTON: They shot him through the vest? SHARP
SHOOTER: Right chest. BENTON: All right BP? [Speaking to the suspect]
Sir, I'm a doctor. I'm here to help you. Can you talk? SUSPECT:
Go to hell. BENTON: Okay, I'll take THAT as a yes. Diminished breath
sounds on the right. PARAMEDIC: BP's 100 over 65. His pulse is
at 88. BENTON: All right, let's get a large board IV and let's roll
him. No exit wound. All right he needs a chest tube. Let's get bed edrate
and a sterile drape and take that mask off. [Kovac arrives to
the scene.] KOVAC: You got this? BENTON: Yeah. [Then pays
attention to the suspect] Lidicane. KOVAC: I'm sending the eye by
ambulance and taking the leg by chopper. BENTON: Hold on, hold on. I
might need to fly this guy. [Then pays attention to the suspect] Ten blade.
KOVAC: No room. Take him by ground. BENTON: Hold on, I jut
want to make sure he's stable. KOVAC: You can bring him to Mercy.
County is the closest paediatric trauma centre. BENTON: Just
wait until I get the chest tube in! [Then pays attention to the suspect]
All right, 32 French, come on! KOVAC: [Talking to a paramedic] Chris,
take two units of O-neg. from the chopper. I'm loading my kid. BENTON:
I said wait! [Kovac walks away] KOVAC!
[Back at Cook County General, the news is on about the school
shooting.] TV Anchor: The suspect is apparently alive. We're waiting
for conformation on that. If you are just joining us, this is a live shot
of Falin Elementary School...
[John Carter, Abby Lockhart, a nurse and the secretary Randi are
watching the television at the front desk.] ABBY: Is that Dr.
Kovac? CARTER: I don't know, it's hard to say. RANDI: Nah,
he's too short to be Kovac. [Dr. Dave Malucci walks in obviously
looking for something.] DR. DAVE: Has anyone seen the tool kit?
RANDI: What tool kit? DR. DAVE: That do-it-yourself kit. The
one with the hammer, pliers, screwdriver. RANDI: What are you going to
build, a tree house? DR. DAVE: [Searching through cupboards for the
tool kit] I've got a guy who drilled a wood screw into his tibia with a power
drill. ABBY: [A phone is ringing and nobody is answering it] Is
someone gunna get that? NURSE: Thanks Abby. DR. DAVE:
[Noticing that everyone is watching the TV] What are you watching?
ABBY: Where have you been? CARTER: There was a shooting near
a school. Weaver sent Benton and Kovac. DR. DAVE: W-wait a minute. Why
do they get to go? CARTER: [Chuckling] Cuz they don't get sick in the
chopper! DR. DAVE: I already told you I had the flu okay? [Finds the
tool kit] I got it. NURSE: What are ya gunna do? Take it out
with a screwdriver? DR. DAVE: What? You got a better idea?
ABBY: MVA coming in single out over parking structure.
CARTER: ETA? ABBY: Five to ten. CARTER: Okay, get
Weaver. I'll meet you in trauma 2. DR. DAVE: Hey, hey. Why do you get
it? CARTER: I'll tell you if he needs his oil changed.
[Benton and the paramedics are pulling the suspect on a stretcher into
an ambulance.] PARAMEDIC: The drive might be faster with morning
traffic. BENTON: It's your call. PARAMEDIC: Hold on, pulse
is weak and thready. BENTON: Hey there mister, are you with me?
PARAMEDIC: Heart rate's up to 120. Chest out. Put some blood..500cc's!
BENTON: He's bleeding out through his chest. All right, spike a unit
of O-neg. PARAMEDIC: BP is down to 70 palk. BENTON:
All right, follow me. PARAMEDIC: Hey, where are you going?
BENTON: We'll transport him by chopper.
[Benton runs to the helicopter to see that Kovac and Nicholas are
already in there getting ready to leave.] KOVAC: [To paramedic]
Carefully! The bone is then DKO. BENTON: He's bleeding out.
KOVAC: What? BENTON: The guy, the shooter. He's bleeding
out. I need the chopper. KOVAC: Where are we going to put him?
BENTON: We're going to have to take the boy out. KOVAC: He
has a pulseless leg. BENTON: Yeah, but we've go five hours to
re-vascualize. KOVAC: I'm not going to waste time transporting him by
ground. BENTON: This guy's pressure's crashing! KOVAC: Then
give him blood! BENTON: Come on, get out of the chopper.
KOVAC: No way. BENTON: Look. My patient is more critical.
KOVAC: Your patient killed people! BENTON: That's not our
call. [Benton goes to the paramedics with the suspect] Come on.
KOVAC: Close the door! Let's go! BENTON: [Banging on
helicopter door] Open up the door! KOVAC: Stay back! BENTON:
Open up the door! KOVAC: Stay back! [Benton gives up and
very angrily watches the helicopter leave.]
[Back at County General, an uncooperative patient is wheeled into
trauma 2.] PATIENT: Ow, ow, ow, ow! HALEH: IV's in.
PARAMEDIC: That's it, I'm outta here. PATIENT: Screw you!
PARAMEDIC: Oh you're welcome! CARTER: Thanks Doris.
PARAMEDIC: Anytime! [Dr. Kerry Weaver enters the trauma
room.] KERRY: What do ya got Carter? CARTER: We've got a
combative single MVA. Ran into a parking lot booth. PATIENT:
[Complaining about the neck brace] Get this thing off my neck! KERRY:
Was anybody in it? CARTER: No. PATIENT: I can't breathe!
CARTER: He's alter-tacky and hypertentive. KERRY: He'll need
a head CT. PATIENT: Get this thing off! [Abby walks in
holding an x-ray.] ABBY: Neck looks clear. CARTER: Okay,
remove the collar. HALEH: BP's up, 200 over 100. ABBY: Okay
hold still. PATIENT: Get it off! ABBY: That's what I'm
doing! KERRY: Looks like a prosticular hip dislocation.
CARTER: Okay try 200 of fentynol and six of recede. I'll reduce it.
ABBY: You might want to look at this. KERRY: What's wrong?
ABBY: It's a goyder I think. A big one. HALEH: That's ONE of
recede. CARTER: And 50 of fentynol. PARIENT: What are you
doing? Don't touch me! CARTER: Keep going, he can take a little more.
KERRY: Okay, did you notice any hand tremors? ABBY: No, he
was moving around all over the place. CARTER: That's another 50 of
fentynol. You thinking thyroid storm? KERRY: IV inderal 100 PTU.
ABBY: So he's not on drugs. CARTER: Oh no, no his thyroid id
hyperactive. PATIENT: I'm going to kill someone! I swear!
HALEH: How much inderal? KERRY: Hydrate a milligram every
two minutes. [Carter walks over to the end of the gurney to reduce the
patient's dislocated hip.] CARTER: Okay, how's, Abby. Have you
ever reduced a hip before? ABBY: No. CARTER: It's easy. You
want to stabalize the pelvis. KERRY: No, from above. Up. Yep.
CARTER: You got it? ABBY: Yep. CARTER: Okay, I'm
gunna pull up. On three. One...two...three. [Carter struggles to
reduce the patient's hip and suddenly the patient wakes up and pushes
Carter with his feet to off the ground and by the door of the trauma room.]
KERRY: Oh my gosh, Carter! Carter! Are you all right? Carter?
[Carter is in obvious pain, but gets up anyway.] CARTER:
Oh...push another two of berset. KERRY: Okay, somebody grab Malucci,
he can do this. CARTER: I can do it. KERRY: John, sit down.
CARTER: I said I can do it! Is he out this time? HALEH:
Yeah, he's out. KERRY: I don't want you to aggravate your injury.
CARTER: You ready? You ready? ABBY: Yeah. CARTER:
Thank you. Now maintain downward pressure. Don't be gentle.
One...two...three. [Carter struggles to reduce the patients hip and
Kerry looks worried] Okay, I got it. Femoral head is back in place.
KERRY: Good job Carter. CARTER: Oh, it's just like falling
off a horse. HALEH: Heart rate's down to 110. [Another nurse
walks in the trauma room.] MOLIK: Dr. Weaver, we've got a hot MI in
curtain 3. KERRY: Okay, you got it from here? CARTER: Hard
part's over. Let's get him to radiology and we'll take a post reduction
film later. ABBY: Hey, sorry about that. CARTER: Nah, no it
takes a lot to get counteraction. Hey, could you babysit him in radiology?
ABBY: Sure. CARTER: Thank you. [Once everyone
leaves, Carter stays behind and closes the trauma room doors. He walks
over to the sink and prepares to inject himself with drugs. As the needle
is in, Abby suddenly walks in.] ABBY: Did I leave his chart in here?
[Carter is scared by Abby's entrance. He is afraid Abby will he him
injecting himself so he turns away.] CARTER: Is it over on the meter
stand? ABBY: Uh, no. [Abby did notice that Carter injected
himself with the drugs and that the needle is still in his wrist. She is
very shocked by this but doesn't let Carter know that she sees him.]
CARTER: Just cleaning up. ABBY: Yep. CARTER: There
it is. ABBY: What? CARTER: The chart. It's over there.
ABBY: Thanks. [Carter leaves the sink and walks over to the
other side of the trauma room, trying to change the subject.] CARTER:
Oh, look at this, a needle stick waiting to happen. ABBY: Can't be too
careful. CARTER: That's right. Hey, make sure they do a head, abdomen
and pelvis on that guy. ABBY: Sure. CARTER: And come find
me, hunt me down. Let me see how he does. ABBY: Okay.
CARTER: Thanks. ABBY: Yep. CARTER: Thank you.
[Abby leaves and Carter leans against a wall mad at himself that he
practically got caught using drugs.]
[Elizabeth Corday approaches Kovac as he and the paramedics wheel in
Nicholas from the helicopter.] KOVAC: What's his leg pressure?
PARAMEDIC: Stable...110 over 70. ELIZABETH: How is he?
KOVAC: GSW to the groin with a pulseless leg. ELIZABETH:
What about the arm? KOVAD: Through and through neuro sucrua in tact.
ELIZABETH: Does he have sensation in the foot? KOVAC: We're
losing it. NICHOLAS: Am I going to loose my leg? ELIZABETH:
Not if I have anything to say about it.
[Mark Greene is wandering the halls at County General, giving out
orders.] MARK: Send burns for a shoulder x-ray. Sub-maranian
needs a delatlent level. [Mark hears a patient in pain] What the hell is
that? NURSE: Mr. Goodwrench is tuning up a patient. MARK:
What? DR. DAVE: You gotta hold still man. MARK: Malucci,
what are you doing? DR. DAVE: Hey...boss. Uh, you know what? Let's
take a break okay? PATIENT: [In pain] Okay. DR. DAVE: Okay.
A guy drove a screw into his leg. MARK: Yeah I can see that. Do you
think he needs a little more lidacane? DR. DAVE: He won't even take an
aspirin. He says it interferes with the healing process. MARK: Did you
tell him he was wrong? DR. DAVE: Yeah uh Chief even tried to talk some
sense into him. MARK: Well listen tell him if he wants to be a
Lascius, he can't scream so much. He scares the other patients. DR.
DAVE: Right, right. I'll have him bite down on a bullet or something.
[Mark walks over to the front desk and sees Carter walking by.]
MARK: Carter. I heard you got punted across the trauma room.
CARTER: Yeah? Who told you that? MARK: I hear everything.
CARTER: Haleh. MARK: Yeah. [Dr. Dave's patient is
still screaming] CARTER: Malucci. MARK: I know. So did you
hurt yourself? CARTER: No, I just knocked the wind out of me.
Everything's working. MARK: Another tough guy. Is something rolling
up? CARTER: Rolling down. It's the kid from the shooting. I thought I
might jump in. MARK: Okay, well don't jump off any gurneys.
CARTER: Yes sir. MARK: So did you call any of those phsyc
referrals? CARTER: What patient? MARK: That list I gave you.
CARTER: Oh! Yeah, uh huh. MARK: How'd it go?
CARTER: Um, you know, okay I guess. Kinda tough to tell.
MARK: Yeah, it could take a while.
[Nicholas is brought into trauma 1 followed by Carter, Kovac and
Elizabeth.] KOVAC: CBC lights, PTPT t-type crossovers two units.
ELIZABETH: Come and give him more morphine. CARTER: Want
aneseph? KOVAC: Gave it to him on the field. Nicholas, we're just
going to take a look at you here and then we'll bring you upstairs for an
operation okay? ELIZABETH: On my count. One...two...three.
NICHOLAS: Did they call my dad? KOVAC: We'll take care of
it. Mary, call the police, the school, or whoever to reach his father at
work. CARTER: It's been all over the news I'm sure his dad's looking
for him. KOVAC: Make sure. NURSE: Got it.
ELIZABETH: Lungs are clear. LYDIA: BP 115 over 75. Pulse 80.
ELIZABETHL Left enginal entrance wound. Where's the exit?
KOVAC: Couldn't find one for the leg. ELIZABETH: Well it's
still inside. CARTER: You should see it on the pelvic film.
KOVAC: No pulse place upward. ELIZABETH: Let's take a look
at the back. KOVAC: Through and through. Missed everything. I assessed
him in the field. ELIZABETH: I need to examine it myself.
[Carter notices Abby talking to Mark outside the trauma room. He
thinks that she may be telling Mark what she saw.] KOVAC: Okay, let's
roll him. Hold on Nicholas we need to move you on your side so we can look
at your back...Carter? ELIZABETH: Carter! CARTER:
[Distracted by Abby] Yeah, I got it. ELIZABETH: Let's roll.
[Abby and Mark treat an injured rugby player.] MARK: Did you
hit your head or pass out? PATIENT: Of course I hit my head. It's
rugby! MARK: Okay, any pain in your chest or your belly?
PATIENT: No, nothing. I didn't want to come in, but the fellas made
me. [Abby starts to cut his shirt off] Hey, hey what are you doing?
MARK: We need to cut your shirt so that we can examine you.
PATIENT: Like hell you do. We just got these jerseys. MARK:
If you've broken your collar bone it'll be very painful to lift your
hands above your head. PATIENT: Pain is relevant mate. [Dr.
Dave's patient is still screaming] What's that? MARK: Someone
who didn't want us to cut off his shirt. PATIENT: Right.
MARK: Okay Abby. Abby? Go ahead. [Abby cuts the patient's
shirt to see that his whole chest is blue.] MARK: You are blue. Did
you know that Mr. Turner? PATIENT: Yeah, it happens as soon as you
sweat in these new jerseys. MARK: Hmmm...maybe you should wash 'em
first. PATIENT: It's brand new. MARK: [Smiles] Okay. Let me
know if you feel any pain. PATIENT: Uhhh yeah, yeah. MARK:
Probably a mid shaft fracture. Yeah, it looks like it's broken.
PATIENT: Will I be able to play next week? MARK: I doubt it.
But we're going to wait and see the x-ray. Be right back. Abby? Get a
clavicle film... ABBY: Right. MARK: Is everything okay?
ABBY: Yeah MARK: You sure? ABBY: Do you have a
[Back in trauma 1, Elizabeth, Carter, Kovac and Kerry are helping
Nicholas.] ELIZABETH: I don't see a bullet. CARTER: Must be
higher up in the abdomen. KOVAC: Let's shoot a KUB. Are you sure your
stomach doesn't hurt? NICHOLAS: It's just my leg. NURSE:
PBC's on the cardiac monitor. KOVAC: Where's the chest x-ray?
CARTER: Whoa! Run of five. ELIZABETH: A 60 of lydicane start
one permanent? NICHOLAS: [Scared] What is it? KOVAC: Just an
extra heartbeat. Nothing to worry about. KERRY: You're not going to
believe this. KOVAC: What? KERRY: I found your bullet.
ELIZABETH: Oh god, it's in his heart. KOVAC: Must have
travelled through the femoral vein. KERRY: From there to the IVC into
the right atrium and ventricle. ELIZABETH: Lydia, call the OR. Tell
them we're on our way up. KERRY: Carter, make sure there's an open
cardiac room with a profusionist standing by. He may need a bypass.
CARTER: I got it. KOVAC: You'll have to revascualize the leg
at the same time. ELIZABETH: Put right lateral ducubiters reverse
tambelenberg. We don't want to embalize into the lung.
KOVAC: Nicholas, we need to move you onto your side again.
NICHOLAS: What's wrong? KOVAC: Remember I said we would take
you upstairs? NICHOLAS: Yeah. KOVAC: Well, we're going now.
[Outside of the hospital, Benton gets out of an ambulance looking very
mad.] PARAMEDIC: Hey, good effort. [Benton just keeps
walking and passes by an ambulance unloading a patient with Dr. Cleo Finch
there to help.] PARAMEDIC: 18 year old collage student found outside
her dorm. Stabbed in the lower abdomen. CLEO: [Noticing Benton
walking by] Hey Peter?
[Kerry, Elizabeth and Kovac take Nicholas to the elevator so he can go
to the OR.] KERRY: 200cc's of nifolie. ELIZABETH: Type and
cross of six units have two of FFP on hand. KOVAC: She's gunna fix you
up okay? Hang in there buddy. NICHOLAS: You'll get my dad?
KOVAC: I'll get you dad! [Benton finds Kovac and Weaver
outside the elevator.] KERRY: Send up the O-neg. in case they need it.
Hey. Peter? Elizabeth needs another surgeon. BENTON: [Ignores
Kerry and walks straight to Kovac] Congratulations he's dead. KERRY:
Who? BENTON: The man he abandoned at the scene. KOVAC: I
didn't abandon him. BENTON: [Yelling] Oh we went initially five
minutes outside Mercy. They cracked him but it was too late. KOVAC:
And what ten minutes would have made a difference? BENTON: We won't
know will we? KERRY: Hold on, are we talking about the shooter?
BENTON: First rule of triage? The most critical patient. THAT'S the
first priority. KOVAC: The boy has a bullet in his heart. It could
embalize at any minute and he can loose his leg. KERRY:
[Yelling over Benton's voice] Peter... BENTON: [Yelling] You didn't
make a medical judgement you made a... KOVAC: I made BOTH!
KERRY: ...UPSTAIRS PETER! BENTON: ...and you didn't care
man! KOVAC: I was caring for the BOY! KERRY: Hey, hey, hey,
hey that's enough! That's enough. [Mark approaches Kerry in the
hallway.] KOVAC: I can't believe that guy! MARK: Kerry, I
need to talk to you. [A stretcher wheels by with the 18 year old stab
victim.] PARAMEDIC: BP's 118 over 78 pulse 84. POLICE
OFFICER: Can you describe the man who stabbed you? PATIENT: [Crying]
Uh I don't know it happened so fast. CLEO: Chuny get an ultrasound and
fetal monitor trauma 2. KERRY: Cleo? You need some help?
CLEO: Yeah I might. MARK: Kerry NOW, it's important!
KERRY: [Following Mark and still dealing to Kovac] No, no.
KOVAC: You saw the boy, he needed to get to a trauma centre.
KERRY: Calm down. Go help Cleo! KOVAC: I'm supposed to delay
care while they take the guy who was shooting at kids and cops...
KERRY: GO HELP CLEO!
[In trauma 2 Cleo is assisting the 18 year old stab victim.]
CLEO: One...two...three! POLICE OFFICER: Can you give me the
kind of physical description? PATIENT: He was...um...darker. Maybe
Mexican. [Kovac enters to help Cleo.] KOVAC: What is it?
CLEO: Victim of assault single right stab wound to the lower right
quadrant. Uh four centimetres off the mid-line. POLICE OFFICER: What

PATIENT: What do you mean? KOVAC: Your pregnancy. When are

KOVAC: [With the ultrasound] Hold on. CLEO: What?
KOVAC: There. A blood clot. CLEO: Abruption?
KOVAC: Could be. Twelve milligrams of betametasone now.
PATIENT: You can't tell my parents! KOVAC: What's your name?
PATIENT: Gloria. Gloria Milton. KOVAC: Gloria the stab wound
has damaged the placenta causing it to bleed which would cut off
oxygen to you baby. GLORIA: I didn't even know I had a baby.
KOVAC: Well you do. Right now it looks okay but we may need to bring
you upstairs for a sea section. GLORIA: You mean cut me open?
KOVAC: 32 weeks is early but we're giving you steroids now to help
ensure the baby's lungs. GLORIA: No wait. I don't want an
operation. KOVAC: You may not have a choice. If the abruption
continues the baby will die. GLORIA: But nothing bad will happen
to me right? KOVAC: Right now you're all right but...
GLORIA: Then don't! Don't cut me open! Don't do anything!
[Carter runs into Dr. Dave at the front desk and they walk to the staff
room for some coffee.] CARTER: Hey, it's Dr. Torkamada. DR.
DAVE: Who? CARTER: Nothing. Have you discharged your screamer yet?
DR. DAVE: It was pretty tough Carter. CARTER: I couldn't
tell that from out here. DR. DAVE: He took on a hurt in one. You gotta
respect that. CARTER: Right, no brain no pain! DR. DAVE:
Some cultures see pain as a right of passage. [Both Carter and Dr. Dave
walk into the staff room to see Mark, Kerry and Abby sitting at a table.
Carter gets nervous because he's afraid they now know about what he did in
the trauma room.] Hey did somebody call a staff meeting? KERRY: No.
CARTER: Hey you know that kid made it up to the OR okay. Cardiac
team's in, Benton's working on the leg. KERRY: Good, thanks.
DR. DAVE: Page 13 missile warriors with of needle scars themselves
with red hot spears and yank out their bottom front teeth...with no lidicane
mine you. CARTER: Hmmm... MARK: Hey Dave why don't you give
us a minute? DR. DAVE: Oh yeah sure. Sorry. [Dr. Dave and
Carter both start to walk out of the staff room.] MARK: Carter, hold
on. CARTER: [Looking innocent] What's up? MARK: I think you
know. CARTER: [Changing the subject] Awe look at that. They guy leaves
like a millimetre of coffee in the bottom of the pot. MARK: Abby saw
you. CARTER: [Looking away] Saw me what? MARK: Abby?
ABBY: I saw you inject the Fentanyl into your wrist. CARTER:
[Looking shocked] What?! ABBY: In the trauma room when you said you
were cleaning up. CARTER: I was cleaning up. KERRY: John? I
have the chart here and you dropped 200 of fentynol into the syringe.
CARTER: What is this? KERRY: You gave 150 mikes to the
patient. CARTER: Uhkay hold on, slow down. This is a mistake.
KERRY: You stopped after three cc's. CARTER: Yeah Haleh gave
him a bunch of recent you were there. KERRY: What happened to the rest
of the fentynol? CARTER: I dunno. I must have wasted it down the sink.
KERRY: Somebody's supposed to witness you doing that.
CARTER: Come on! Come one we do that all the time. KERRY: We
have a protocol for the disposal of narcotics. CARTER: Okay. Fine.
Whatever. That doesn't mean that I injected it. [Looks at Kerry and Mark in
disbelief, then at Abby] Abby...if you thought you saw something, why...why
wouldn't you come talk to me? KERRY: It's appropriate for Abby to come
to us. CARTER: Now when she's WRONG... MARK: Carter, you
still on pain medication? CARTER: Why? What? MARK: For your
back. CARTER: Yeah why? A little why? MARK: How much is a
little? CARTER: Well that's between me and my doctor isn't it?
MARK: So you're not over-medicating. CARTER: You think I'm a
drug attict? Hm? Do you honestly think I'm a drug attict? That I'm what
sneaking around injecting whatever narcotics I can find? [Laughing] You
guys you know me! This is ridiculous! MARK: So you deny this.
CARTER: Yes I deny it. Abby I uh think you're seeing things. Maybe
you're on drugs...[Sarcastically] Yeah I think I saw you with a needle
once. MARK: Okay Carter. If this is a misunderstanding I apologise.
CARTER: This is a misunderstanding. MARK: You know why we
had to ask you. CARTER: [Shakes his head no] Can I go back to work
now? [Mark shakes his head yes] Thank you. [Carter walks to the door] And
thank you Abby. I really appreciate that. [Leaves very mad] KERRY:
He's lying Mark. MARK: I know.
[In trauma 2 Kovac is trying to convince Gloria to get a sea section so
the baby will live.] CLEO: We'll call someone you can talk to it
doesn't have to be your parents it can be a friend, a roommate...
GLORIA: No, please. I don't wanna talk to anyone. DOCTOR:
Gloria, we don't have much time. If we're gunna save that baby we'll
operate now. GLORIA: I told you I don't want it. CLEO: You
can give the baby up for adoption. Your mom and dad will never have to
know. GLORIA: I don't want an operation! So leave me alone all of you!
Just leave me alone! All of you just leave me alone! KOVAC: Okay,
okay, okay! But you're gunna have to keep monitors on. GLORIA: Why?
KOVAC: For your own safety. We need to know if you start bleeding
internally. DOCTOR: Dr. Kovac? KOVAC: [To Cleo] Why don't
you speed another crate and cycle the Dynamite every five minutes.
[Kovac and the doctor leave the trauma room.] DOCTOR:
Seventeen years of practise I thought I'd seen everything. KOVAC:
You're taking her up? DOCTOR: I can't, not if she doesn't want to.
KOVAC: The fetal heart rate is down to 100. The abruption is
progressing. She needs a sea section. DOCTOR: I made it the
consequences very clear to her. KOVAC: She doesn't care about the
consequences. DOCTOR: You can't cut a woman open without her consent!
That's assault! KOVAC: The baby will die! DOCTOR: I'm aware
of that. KOVAC: And you can stand by and watch it happen?!
DOCTOR: There's nothing I can do. KOVAC: You can operate.
DOCTOR: No I can't. I'm sorry. KOVAC: I'm calling another
OB. DOCTOR: Who? I'm the head of the department. We don't force sea
sections on women in this hospital. KOVAC: What if I can get her to
declare incompetent? DOCTOR: I don't know. She seemed incoherent to
me. KOVACL I think the stab wound was self-inflicted.
DOCTOR: You can prove that? KOVAC: She's delusional! She
claims she didn't know she was pregnant! DOCTOR: She was lying. That
doesn't mean she's crazy. KOVAC: What kind of woman carries a child
for eight months and then refuses to let us count her baby!
DOCTOR: What? Call psych. Give it a shot. KOVAC: Then I can
bring her up? DOCTOR: Yeah if they say yes.
[In the OR Benton and Elizabeth are operating on Nicholas.]
ELIZABETH: Separating clamp. Five-O. of praline. If you ask me Peter,
we're lucky to have this extra time. BENTON: Uh, Kovac didn't know the
bullet moved to his heart. ELIZABETH: Well I'd have trouble
prioritising someone who shoots at a playground too. OR ASSISTANT:
BP's down to 80 palp. BENTON: Is that you? ELIZABETH: Nope,
no active bleeding. BENTON: Femoral vesicles are clamped. Shirley,
recheck the pressure. OR ASSISTANT: Still falling 70 palp.
ELIZABETH: What is it? BENTON: Did the bullet embalize?
ELIZABETH: Threwoscope on. [Looks on the screen in front of her] It's
still in the heart for now but it's moving closer to the pulmonary artery.
[Blood starts dripping on the floor.] BENTON: We got blood
dripping on the floor. ELIZABETH: Where from? OR ASSISTANT:
He's bleeding out. BENTON: Awe dammit! Falene sponge now!
ELIZABETH: We need six more units of pike cells up here. [Benton goes
over to Nicholas's shoulder to see what is causing him to bleed] What are you
doing? BENTON: I've got to locate the source. ELIZABETH: I
just opened his heart! BENTON: It won't make a difference is we don't
stop the bleeding! ELIZABETH: Wait, wait, just wait! BENTON:
Clamp the oracle. ELIZABETH: I can't. BENTON: Just for a
second, The other bullet must have hit the axilary artery. Clamp the sulpranic.
ELIZABETH: I need to get this bullet out! BENTON: Then I'll
do it myself! Move, come on let's go. OR ASSISTANT: Pressure's down to
60. ELIZABETH: Where's that damn blood? Shirley get him a saline
boles. BENTON: Oh come on. Dammit I can't reach the artery. All right
crank the stern, open a little wider. ELIZABETH: He's in v-fib!
Panels! Panels! Peter get your hands off now. BENTON: Hold on hold on!
ELIZABETH: Clear NOW! BENTON: Got it, go!
[Mark is helping Mr. Tanner, the injured Rugby player.] MARK:
I don't know what to tell you. MR. TANNER: But I've got a tournament
next week. I can't miss the tournament. MARK: You've broken your
collarbone Mr. Tanner. Aside from seriously hurting yourself, you'd be
useless on the field. MR. TANNER: Well can't you just put it in a cast
or something? MARK: No, we sling it and you rest. MR.
TANNER: Well it can't be that bad. MARK: Yosh. Could you get Mr.
Tanner a sling? NURSE: I'll have to call Central. All we have are
small's. He looks large! KERRY: Hey. Mark? MR. TANNER: You
can make that an extra large mate. MARK: I'll be back to discharge
you. [Mark and Kerry walk into the suture room to discuss Carter's
situation.] KERRY: So, I talked to legal. MARK: Did you use
his name? KERRY: No I spoke in hypotheticals. Bottom line, we need
more evidence. MARK: But he can't see patients right? KERRY:
It, it's one accusation. We have to be careful. MARKL Can we ask him
the drug test? KERRY: He's taking a prescribed pain medication. He'll
test positive and I'm afraid just asking him will push him further away.
MARK: What do you want to do? KERRY: I want to get him some
help. MARK: Let me talk to him again. He might open up if he doesn't
see it as a threat. KERRY: Mark, how could we let this happen? I
mean he showed all the signs. MARK: I know, I know. But it's Carter.
Your mind just doesn't go there.
[A psychiatrist is talking to Gloria in trauma 2 trying to convince her
to have the surgery while Kovac and Cleo are waiting to hear what she
says.] CLEO: She's a little calmer now, that's a good sign. He'll talk
her into it. KOVAC: How do you know? CLEO: He has to.
NURSE: Dr. Kovac? KOVAC: Yeah? NURSE: This is
Vinni Asanto, Nicholas's father. The boy from the school. KOVAC: Oh
yes, yes hi, hi Mr. Asanto. Your son is in surgery. MR. ASANTO: How
bad is it? KOVAC: He was shot in the leg and the shoulder. The surgeon
should be able to repair those injuries but one bullet has travelled to
his heart. MR. ASANTO: He was shot in the heart? KOVAC: No,
no, no, no the bullet was swept through the vein but there shouldn't be
any major tissue damage. Mr. ASANTO: Can they get it out?
KOVAC: We should take you upstairs. There you can get more
information. CLEO: I'll take you Mr. Asanto. KOVAC: Thank
you Cleo. [The psychiatrist comes out of trauma 2 after talking with
Gloria to talk to Kovac.] PSYCHIATRIST: She's certainly emotionally
distort. She could be clinically depressed and even have a personality
disorder. KOVAC: Can you declare her incompetent?
PSYCHIATRIST: But she's not exactly psychotic. She understands that
failing to perform the sea section could danger her baby's life.
KOVAC: You mean kill it. PSYCHIATRIST: She's willing to take
the risk. KOVAC: It's not a risk. She wants it to happen. She stabbed
herself to make it happen. PSYCHIATRIST: You have no evidence of that.
KOVAC: And she's a danger to others. PSYCHIATRIST: Who?
KOVAC: The baby! PSYCHIATRIST: Doesn't count. It's still her
body. Is the sea section necessary to save her life? KOVAC: Somewhere
there has to be a point! PSYCHIATRIST: Is it? KOVAC: No.
PSYCHIATRIST: And without a court order you can't touch her.
KOVAC: I don't have time for a court order. That baby needs to come
out now. PSYCHIATRIST: We can try to expedite her. Our legal
department knows friendly judges. You have to run it by Apidavid.
KOVAC: Yeah, whatever.
[Carter is sitting outside the hospital smoking a cigarette as Mark
comes to talk to him.] MARK When did you start smoking?
CARTER: That depends, does it make me a druggie? MARK: Ask
the Surgeon General! I'm worried about you Carter. CARTER: Look, I'm
okay. I got angry, and I shouldn't have. Not that I didn't have a right.
I'm okay. MARK: You didn't talk to anyone did you? Any psychiatrists.
CARTER: No. MARK: Why not? CARTER: Cuz I didn't
feel like talking. Look I'm gunna be fine. Or I hope, no I uh I will be.
It's been rough, You gotta understand that! I was stabbed twice in the
back with a six inch butcher knife. I'm in a lot of pain. This place isn't
exactly the easiest work environment. Lucy's dead which is partly my
fault, I haven't slept in months. I, I had to take more pain medication
just to function! [Stares at Mark] I didn't steal it. It was
prescribed to me. MARK: Did you take the prescribed amount?
CARTER: Well, more or less. MARK: I think ya need help
Carter. CARTER: Look, I understand that you have to make it your
business. But please, PLEASE let me deal with it. MARK: When are you
off? CARTER: Midnight. MARK: Okay, I don't want you to see
any more patients. You can work on QA chart reviews. CARTER: I can see
patients, there's nothing wrong with me... MARK: Carter, you have to
trust me. Let me figure this out. [Carter nods his head yes and Mar
walks away looking worried.]
[Benton and Elizabeth are coming out of surgery after just saving
Nicholas.] BENTON: We gotta write this one up. ELIZABETH: Oh
yeah, including the part where you lifted him off the table while I was
opening his heart! BENTON: Yeah, cranking his chest with one hand,
suturing with the other. ELIZABETH: I still have a few moves you
haven't seen. BENTON: Oh yeah! ELIZABETH: Uhm hum.!
BENTON: Listen okay dibbs on the bullet all right?
ELIZABETH: No way it's mine! BENTON: What are you talking
about I was the one that called it! ELIZABETH: Yeah but I fished it
out! BENTON: Oh yeah but... ELIZABETH: Hey Cleo.
BENTON: Hey, we just made a great save. CLEO: I can see
that. ELIZABETH: Yeah we got the bullet out of the boy's heart and
Peter saved his arm and his leg! CLEO: Father's outside
recovery waiting to talk to someone. ELIZABETH: Oh, I'll do it.
BENTON: What's wrong? CLEO: Nothing.
[Carter is at a desk doing paper work since he can't see any patients.
Abby is about to see a patient when she notices Carter at the desk. She
decides to go over and talk to him.] ABBY: Hey Dr. Carter.
[Carter looks at her, but doesn't answer] Dr. Carter I didn't know what to
do so I talked to Dr. Greene I'm sorry. And I know I don't know you very
well but I think you're a good doctor and I know you've been through a lot
in a short time and I'm sure I couldn't handle it myself. But I felt I had
to tell him. CARTER: [Bitterly] Feel better? Because I have work to
do. [Abby looks at Carter and is very hurt by how Carter just treated
her. She walks away to see Mr. Tanner.] ABBY: Okay Mr. Tanner,
here's your prescription. You need to take one every six hours for pain and your
gunna want to ice the...Mr. Tanner? Mr. Tanner! Yosh get Dr. Greene now.
NURSE: What is it? ABBY: Barely has a pulse. Willie I need a
BP. [Carter overhears Abby and knows how to save Mr. Tanner's life.]
CARTER: What did he present with? ABBY: Fractured clavicle.
Absent breath sounds on the left. [Carter looks around to make sure
Mark isn't coming.] CARTER: Do a tension numeral. Get a 14 gage needle
on an open syringe. Come on let's go. NURSE: BP's 50 palp.
Nadine? CARTER: Yep. Quickly, quickly. Get him on a Pulse-ox. I got
it. Okay check the pulse. ABBY: Stronger. CARTER: He's
gunna need a chest tube. ABBY: All he had was a broken collar bone.
CARTER: Not any more. NURSE: Set at 95. CARTER:
Okay give me a ten-blade. [Mark arrives to see Carter working on Mr.
Tanner after he was told not to see any patients.] MARK: Carter what
are you doing? CARTER: Saving this guy's life. You must have missed an
Acult rib fracture. MARK: I'll take it from here. CARTER:
You'll need me to decompress him, akili? MARK: I got it Carter.
CARTER: I'm almost done. [Mark stares at Carter] Right, right. You
take it. MARK: Thirty-two French. ABBY: Suction's ready.
NURSE: BP's 100 over 50. CARTER: [Walking away slowly as he
watches them save Mr. Tanner's life] You're welcome. [They all stare at
Carter, but none of them answer him. They then continue.] MARK:
I'm in. Hook me up. Abby...
[Kovac and Kerry are at the front desk. Kerry is talking on the phone
trying to get a judge so Gloria will have the operation.] KERRY:
Call as soon as you know. Yep thank you. KOVAC: He didn't sign it?
KERRY: They got there at 6:30, the judge had already left but the
clerk is trying to track him down. KOVAC: Can't we try another judge?
KERRY: They're already working on that. KOVAC: I, I we can't
wait. KERRY: Luka? You can't do anything until we get it.
KOVAC: I've waited too long already. KERRY: Promise me that
you won't do anything. KOVAC: No, I'm going to change my mind.
[Kerry goes to the staff room where Mark, Deb and Benton are talking
about what they should do with Carter.] MARK: We need to do this
tonight, BENTON: I don't believe it. DEB: Well it makes
sense. He's been so unpredictable I thought he might be bipolar.
BENTON: Carter? Come one no way. MARK: He has much as
admitted it to me. KERRY: Peter he's using. I don't know for how long
but the behaviours been there for a while. DEB: But is this the
right way to do it? He might feel ganged up on. MARK: It's either this
or we kick it to some committee. Yeah I'd rather approach him as a small
group that he knows and trusts and give him a chance to clear it up.
DEB: And what about Romano? KERRY: No, I don't want to bring
him into this. BENTON: You know uh Carter can be stubborn. He might
just walk out. KERRY: We have to be prepared for that. All we can do
it be compassionate but clear. He has two options, that's it.
MARK: Are you with us Peter? [Donald Anspaugh walks in the
staff room.] ANSPAUGH: Kerry? You needed me? KERRY: Yeah
Donald. ANSPAUGH: So what's the big emergency? KERRY: Why
don't you have a seat? [Everyone stares at each other in disbelief]
[In trauma 2 Gloria is still making sure she doesn't have the
operation.] CLEO: Fetal heart rate down to 60. KOVAC: Get a
baby warmer in here. Gloria we don't have time to argue anymore. This baby
needs to come out now. GLORIA: I want another doctor. KOVAC:
The placenta's detaching. You could haemorrhage to death. GLORIA:
You're just trying to scare me. KOVAC: You should be scared. You don't
care about your baby at least think of yourself. GLORIA: I don't
believe you. You, you would have done something already. NURSE: Heart
rate's down to 50. KOVAC: You're going to have a boy Gloria. I can
tell from the ultrasound. You really want to kill your son? GLORIA:
Leave me alone. I want a I WANT ANOTHER DOCTOR! NURSE: Down to 40.
KOVAC: Okay that's it 100 of Kemaline IV push. CLEO: Dr.
Kovac. KOVAC: You heard me draw up the Kemaline. CLEO: You
can't! KOVAC: I'm the attending I'll take full responsibility.
GLORIA: What are you doing? CLEO: Please don't do this.
GLORIA: I, I, I, I don't want the baby! KOVAC: Sea section
tray prep her. GLORIA: I don't want the baby! NURSE: Heart
rate's down to 20. GLORIA: Please! Please help me! KOVAC:
Cleo set up the suction. CLEO: No I can't. KOVAC: Then get
out of the way! CLEO: Luka she didn't consent! You could loose your
licence. KOVAC: Ten-blade. NURSE: Lost a heart rate.
CLEO: You can't do this. You can't. [Kovac gives up.]
GLORIA: Is it over?
[Kerry approaches Carter who is back doing paper work at a desk.]
KERRY: Carter! Got a minute? CARTER: No. I'm done with
these. You guys don't want me to see patients. I'm going home. KERRY:
Not yet. I need to talk to you. CARTER: Is this my suspension?
KERRY: Not here. Come one. [Carter follows Kerry to curtain
3, the room where this whole ordeal started when he got stabbed in it. He
opens up the door with a smile on his face which quickly turns into a
frown when he sees Mark, Deb, Anspaugh and Benton already there.]
CARTER: [Laughing] Oh god give me a break! [He tries to leave]
KERRY: John. MARK: Carter just listen. CARTER: No
I told you I'm on pain killers for my back, but I'm functioning!
ANSPAUGH: Dr. Carter? It would be wise to be quiet and listen.
[Carter gets nervous and shyly stands in the corner of the room.]
MARK: My van is parked outside. We have a ticket to Atlanta. There's a
drug rehab... [Everyone looks very sad and stares at Carter who is in
disbelief] There's a drug rehab centre there that specialises in treating
doctors with addiction. CARTER: Well that's great but I'm on
prescribed pain killers and that doesn't make me an addict and I think you
all know it. [Carter tries to leave again] MARK: I'm not
finished! It's apparent to all of us that you have a drug problem. Therefore we
can not allow you to work here or anywhere else as a physician so you have
two choices. Get in the van, go to the airport, check yourself in and
when you come back we will support you in any way that we can.
CARTER: Or, I'm fired? MARK: Yeah. [Carter acts as
if he shouldn't be hearing this.] ANSPAUGH: Everyone in this room
cares about you. No one is judging you. CARTER: Yes you are. You've
already judged me. You have no idea what I've been through these last few
months but I've been here. I've showed up. I haven't made excuses, I haven't
complained. KERRY: That's not the point... CARTER: No, that
is the point! Can anybody tell me that uh, uh that I have endangered
patients? I mean can anybody here say that my performance has changed? Hm? That
I'm some kind of alliability? DEB: John, you put a patient into
anaphylactic shock by giving her bacterium when she told you that she was
allergic to it. CARTER: And you almost killed somebody by leaving a
guide wire in their chest. Is this about mistakes? Who here hasn't made a
mistake? [Turns to Mark] Hell I saved your ass this afternoon. KERRY:
John, you're demonstrating compulsive drug seeking behaviour. CARTER:
Wait just tell me what. KERRY: You know what? I think bailing Fentanyl
in the trauma room qualifies. CARTER: Well I told you I didn't do
that. You want to call me a liar fine call me a liar but I didn't do
that. KERRY: Okay show us your wrists. CARTER: What?
KERRY: SHOW US YOUR WRISTS! CARTER: [Looking at everyone as
if this were a joke] Are we looking for track marks? KERRY: [Upset]
Yeah. CARTER: Well there. See? Here you want me to roll up my sleeves?
KERRY: Take off your watch. CARTER: [He knows he is caught]
Uh, you know? You know what? Forget it. Forget it. [Carter starts to leave
the room at the other door] MARK: This is your only chance Carter.
CARTER: Great I quit. [Carter walks out very angry and upset
while the others are standing there wondering why this happened to
Carter.] ANSPAUGH: Well is that it? BENTON: No. [He grabs
his jacket and leaves]
[Carter, who is very upset, is quickly emptying his locker as Benton
comes in.] BENTON: What are you doing? CARTER: I
don't need this. I've never needed this. I wanted to be a doctor, I wanted
to help people but I don't need their damn job. BENTON: Carter you
don't want to do this. CARTER: I'm not doing it they are.
[Carter storms out of the hospital not wanting anyone to talk to him.]
BENTON: Carter wait! CARTER: No. BENTON: Carter
what are you gunna piss it all the way? Everything you've worked for eight
years of your life... CARTER: They're the ones handing out the
altemadums. BENTON: No altamadums Carter you're getting your ass in
that van. CARTER: Like hell I am. BENTON: You're not gunna
do this. CARTER: They tell you that I'm some kind of junkie and you
believe them and you come down and AMBUSH me! BENTON: Carter
you're out of control man and if you can't see that I don't care but
you're getting in that van. [Benton grabs Carter's arm trying to stop him
but Carter just pushes away] Get in the van. CARTER: No.
BENTON: Get in the van. [Benton continues to try and get Carter in the
van] CARTER: Don't touch me. BENTON: Get in the...
CARTER: Don't touch me. BENTON: What is it in you man huh?
This week Fentanyl next week you end up dead or worse like your cousin as
some babbling gork in a nursing home... [Carter gets so angry that he punches
Benton right in the face so hard he almost falls down.] Carter look if you
want to fight that's cool man but you're getting your ass in that van.
[Carter almost starts crying but then holds it back. He then can't hold it
anymore and starts bawling. Benton is there to comfort Carter as he cries
in his arm.] It's all right man, it's all right Carter.
[Kovac decided to let Gloria have her baby naturally and she is in
trauma 2 having it.] NURSE: Good job. That's good.
KOVAC: He's crowning. CLEO: Almost there Gloria. One more
push should do it. Ready? And push. Push! KOVAC: His head is
out. CLEO: Okay you can stop now. KOVAC: Clamp. And cut.
[The baby isn't crying] Does she wanna see him? CLEO: Would you want
to see him Gloria? GLORIA: No. CLEO: Do you want me to
pronounce him? KOVAC: [Upset] No I'll do it. Time of death 19:47.
[Kerry is on a computer at the front desk as Mark and Elizabeth come
over.] ELIZABETH: Did he get on the flight? KERRY: I don't
know, Peter hasn't called. MARK: I wonder what he said.
KERRY: Who knows. I just hope Carter got on. MARK: Yeah.
[Robert Romano, Chief of Staff, walks by.] ROMANO: Well,
it's nice to see the ER brain trust is diligently working after hours.
KERRY: Hello Robert. ROMANO: ICU is a zoo. It seems nice and
peaceful down here. KERRY: Yeah same old stuff. ROMANO: Yeah
the fun never stops. Elizabeth. Walt Newman the inception upstairs.
ELIZABETH: What about him? ROMANO: Tried to reduce with
enamelling, left a big mess. We have to go in. ELIZABETH: Now?
ROMANO: Yeah, it's not quite as sexy as snagging a bullet out of the
heart but it's a life saving procedure none the less. ELIZABETH:
I'll be right up. ROMANO: Thank you. good night all. [He walks away
looking back seeming suspicious that everyone knows something he doesn't]
MARK: I guess I lost my ride. ELIZABETH: Oh, that's right.
MARK: It's all right, I'll take the El. ELIZABETH: You sure?
MARK: Yeah I'll see you at home ELIZABETH: I'll try not to
wake you! Night Kerry. KERRY: Good night. MARK: Wanna go get
something to eat? KERRY: Uh no I think I'll wait to hear he got on.
MARK: Okay, well call me. KERRY: Okay. MARK:
Thanks. SECRETARY: Dr. Weaver? KERRY: Yeah?
SECRETARY: I have legal on line three. They said go ahead the judge
signed a court order.
[Kovac is very upset about the baby dying. He let's a train go by him
and sits on a bench outside at the train station thinking]
[Carter is sitting in a plane looking out the window. Beside him is
Benton who decided to go with him to make sure Carter will be okay.]
