Park. The helicopter is still hovering as Doug does compressions on Ben's chest. Behind him, Joey's got a police officer -- who's carrying a flashlight and a blanket -- and is leading him to Doug and Ben. When Joey and the cop reach Doug, the cop asks whether Ben's okay. Doug tells the officer that mouth-to-mouth isn't working, because Ben's airway is blocked. Doug rolls Ben on his side, I gather to try to make him cough up whatever's in his throat, to no avail. The officer tells Doug that the paramedics should arrive "any minute." Doug tells the cop "that medevac 'copter will take" them. The officer informs Doug, "That's a TV news chopper." Damn journalistic vultures! Joey stands by, soaking wet and terrified, and cries, "Is my brother going to die?" "No, he is not! NO HE IS NOT!" Doug says emphatically. Doug rolls Ben onto his back, produces a Swiss Army knife from...somewhere, and holds it over Ben's throat. The cop asks what he's doing, and Doug explains that he's a doctor, and that he needs to clear Ben's airway. Thankfully, the director has enough sense to block most of what Doug's doing by putting George Clooney's big old head in the way. After he's finished, he asks the cop for a pen. The cop's all, "Huh?" because he's never seen a TV medical drama before. Eventually he hands one over, and Doug does that thing we've all seen a million times before, on a million hospital shows, where the doctor uses the empty tube from the pen to perform a makeshift tracheotomy. There are a tense few moments of Doug yelling at Ben to breathe, and then Ben duly coughs up some water and breathes. Doug picks Ben up in his arms, the blanket wrapped around him, and carries Ben through the park.
