Don Cheadle walks into Surgery, looking for Elizabeth. Romano asks if he's a bill collector or a suitor, and Don Cheadle explains that he's a medical student who was supposed to start his surgical rotation today. Ah, so he's the mysterious Nathan. Romano notes that Nathan is a little old to be a med student, and Nathan says that it's a career change. They get into the elevator. Nathan asks about Romano's arm, and he claims that it's tennis elbow.
A paramedic helps Susan and Abby wheel in a patient. The paramedic explains that there was a fire at a Halloween party, and that there are at least thirty victims. The victim on the gurney is a Jane Doe, a young woman who has burns over much of her body. Abby asks how she's doing, and the woman gasps, "Not...good." Susan gets a first name (Amy), but not a last name. Amy says there was a fire at the party downstairs. Susan asks if Amy has anyone with her, and the paramedic says that the whole building was on fire and that there was a great deal of confusion. Nathan lurks outside, watching. Abby notes that Amy has soot in her nostrils and intraoral burns. Susan tells her to get an intubation tray, and to get Corday to look at the crushed pelvis. Nathan tries to ask Susan where Elizabeth is, but Susan brushes him off.
