Brian/Tracy - ER. Brian (25, more muscles than brains) is there with Tracy (25, attractive, athletic) who has suffered a stroke. Dr. Jones enters and Dr. Smith presents, Tracy, early 20s, ischemic stroke. Brian questions a stroke? I gave her a stroke? Dr. Jones examines,asks Brian if we have a history. Brains says he doesn’t even know her last name. They met at the gym a couple of weeks prior and they play racquetball, she kicks his ass frequently and today was the first time he was winning. He asks if it was him, was he pushing too hard. He’s self impressed. Dr. Jones asks him what answer he is looking for. Before he answers Dr. Jones asks if she is on the pill, Brian doesn’t know.
Post Op - Brian stands awkwardly in Tracy’s room while she sleeps. Dr. Jones comes in. Brain asks Dr. Jones if he will look clingy if he hangs around and asks her out or is it cooler to text her. They only played racquetball but he likes her. Dr. Jones smiles, its stupid and sweet. Tells Brian he should stay, she’d like that. Brian smiles.
Eric/Rita - Rita Patel is 33 weeks pregnant, has Epstein’s Malformation, is there for observation. Her husband, Eric (34), is with her. Dr.Burns and an intern come into the room. Rita will be there until she gives birth. Dr. Burns asks the intern why, Rita speaks before the intern can. She says that childbirth could cause her heart to give out, the risks are that having this baby could kill her but she doesn’t believe them. Eric nods, we can see he’s trying to be there for her.
Next scene, Rita’s room, day. Rita is breathing hard and very uncomfortable. Eric is holding her had. She tells Dr. Burns that she’s had lower back pain but this is different. Its in the center and burning. Dr. Burns says it could be a lot of things and they are going to take her for an ultrasound.
Next: (note that the Rita side and the Eric side list the conditions differently. Its a heart problem in the Rita side and a brain bleed in the Rita side. My guess is it will be heart and Maggie will be the doctor). Dr. Burns and Dr. Norton (or Abraham, name is different in each too) with Eric, Eric is losing it. Dr. Norton explains that Rita is having an aortic dissection, a tear in the inner wall, causes blood to force the vessel apart. She needs an emergency C section, Dr. Norton will operate on the baby while Dr. Burns is repairing your—— Rita cuts in asking if the baby is too little,can she handle the surgery? Dr. Burns says there’s no choice. Rita will die without the surgery. Rita says just make sure my baby —- Eric cuts in telling her to please stop talking about the baby. I told you not to do this. I told you this would happen. Dr. Burns tells Eric to step outside, he goes.
Outside of the room Eric tells the doctor he told her not to do this, he knew this would happen. Dr. tells him she needs his support right now. Eric says he can’t support her killing herself, Dr. says she doesn’t want to loose her child. Eric says she already did. Explains that 5 years ago their little girl Madeline died. Rita was walking with her and let go of her hand because Madeline wanted to run. She fell down and hit her head on the sidewalk, 4 feet from her mother, she was gone. It was a freak thing but Rita will always believe its because she let go of her hand. They thought they would have another child then Rita got her diagnosis so they didn’t try. It was a shock when she got pregnant. He begged her not to have it but she would not let go and now he’s going to lose them both. Dr. says they are going to do their best. Eric goes back to his wife.
Night-Rita’s ICU room. Dr. Abraham updates them on the baby. She’s fine, she is beautiful. Eric kisses Rita, she’s overwhelmed with relief. Dr. will let them know when they can see her. They hold each other, Dr. leaves.
Jeannie/Majorie - Majorie (late 80s) is the patient and Jeannie is her daughter. Dr. Clark leads Dr. Michaels in to see Majorie, who recently coded. Dr. Clark asks Marjorie how she is doing but she’s very sick and moans. Jeannie tells her mother she is getting tea, will be back soon. Marjorie grabs the doctor’s arm and uses all her strength to say if it happens again please let her die.
Majorie’s room - Dr. Clark talking to Majorie. Asks if she knows where she is, she’s not out of her mind. She’s lived 89 years, 65 of those with her husband, more years with him than without him. The taught English in Japan, its very green there. Now she’s here, in this ugly room alone. She’s always in pain and they give her drugs that make her forget everything. She is forgetting her life, her beautiful life. She’s earned better than this. Dr. Clark says there are forms she can sign. Marjorie says that Jeannie won’t let her. She’d never forgive herself if everything wasn’t done. She’s good-hearted, always has been. Marjorie says if its her time she should get to die remembering her life, shouldn’t she? She isn’t pleading, she is reasoning. And, she is right.
Nurse - Nurses move a crash cart to a patient room as Dr. Hall arrives. The patient is coding and a nurse is performing CPR. Dr. Hall asks how long, 40 seconds, is there a DNR, no. Dr. Hall says its not gonna do it, let me. She pushes past the nurse and takes over.
Robbie - Robbie’s room. Robbie, 22, is trying to pass a kidney stone. He’s curled on his side in pain. Dr. Rogers tells him to hang in there. Tells Dr. Hall that Robbie has been having some arrhythmias so they called for an EKG. Robbie is red and very short of breath. Dr. Hall doesn’t like the EKG, orders morphine. Tells Robbie to relax, Robbie does just that.
