Mm-hmm. I love you so much, I want to break you in half. I love you so much, I want to punch your face in. All right, back to work. We might hit code black tonight. You got that, boss. Well, you qualify for tPA, and we’re still inside the window for it to be effective. What are the complications? Only % experience the miracle. However, the same number experience catastrophic bleeding somewhere else in the body. We wouldn’t know where until it was actually happening, and we might not be able to stop it. And if we do nothing? What you see now. And possibly worse. Hey, Hannah? Who’s next? Uh… year old… Pregnant, U.R.I., fever. Parked her in triage. Sounds like the flu. Evaluate, then come find me. Should I go… Evaluate and find me. Next. How do you know so much? Believe me, I don’t. We both went to medical school, we both did an internship. You pulling second residency? What do you mean? I mean, were you already an M.D. and then went back to try a different specialty or something? No. I was too busy being a wife and a mom. Wife and a mom? You sure you’re ready for this? How old do you think I am? All I’m saying is, there’s no tougher place to work in all of E.R. medicine than Trauma- at Angels Memorial. This place is hard enough for… The young. For the unattached. Stop being threatened by me, okay? Is that what you think, that I’m threatened? I think we should examine this patient together. Maybe we’ll both learn something. Why not? The worst part is the headache. I live above the boiler room in my building, and the noise just keeps cracking my head open. Is there anything you can give me for that? You’re nine months pregnant. There’s not a whole lot we can do other than give you Tylenol. I’ve tried that. Doesn’t work. Using again? Excuse me? Mario. The scars on the inside of your arm… They’re old track marks, right? None of your damn business. Who the hell do you think you are? Just a doctor trying to figure out what’s wrong with a patient. You’re a jackass. I don’t have to listen to this. Take it easy. Take it easy. It’s okay. He’s leaving. Can I talk to you for a second? What was that about? She’s a seeker. Heroin withdrawals often mimic flu symptoms. You don’t know that for a fact. Where’s the fever? If it was the flu, would’ve hit her like a freight train. You got a lot of experience with drug withdrawals? No. I’m sorry. I just don’t think that woman is using. I know a little bit more about this than you do. It was a long time ago. I’m not ashamed. I pulled myself out, and I’m fine now. What, do you two just not have enough to do? We’re having a disagreement about a patient. Oh, yeah? Which one? The pregnant U.R.I. I think we should run a tox screen, rule out heroin withdrawals. Huh. And you? I don’t know. Something’s not right. I don’t think it’s the flu, I don’t think it’s heroin. If I just had a little bit more time, I could… Well, you don’t have time, and a positive tox screen doesn’t change the management of the case. Even if she has an addiction problem, there is nothing we can do for her in the E.R.
