Mr. Terruh and Mark continue to debate from exactly the same positions. Weaver approaches, making sure to say not only her name, but the fact that she's "Chief of the Emergency Department." We get it. You got the job. Settle down. Mark tells her he's on it. Mr. Terruh asks if she's Mark's boss and brings her up to date. Weaver asks if Mr. Terruh has the D.N.R. papers with him. He says he can get them. She says he should, since now that she's intubated, the issue is a lot more complicated. Mr. Terruh looks apoplectic. Weaver says she's not sure they should extubate her until she's breathing on her own. Mr. Terruh blinks. Mark, I see where you're coming from, but how hard would it have been for you to get her dad before you did anything?
The crushed construction worker is crashing. Dr. Dave suggests something and Benton says, "Let the doctors take it from here." Dr. Dave says that he is a doctor. The female paramedic drily remarks, "He only thinks he's a paramedic." Carter introduces him as "Dr. Malucci, first-year resident." Dr. Dave corrects him: "'Dr. Dave.'" Benton calls out more instructions, Dr. Dave makes the grievous error of saying, "Let's go," and Benton authoritatively says, "Hold on, Dr. Dave." Benton! Dr. Dave looks annoyed and mutters to Carter, "Who is this guy?" Carter says, "Surgical Trauma Fellow; call him Dr. Pete." Heh! Benton glances up at this with his patented Wither-Carter look. Benton finally tells the staff in the room to put the patient in traction and get him to the OR Dr. Dave says, "Is there an echo in here? Didn't I just say that?" Dude...Benton reaches his breaking point and barks, "All right, you -- get out of here." My sentiments exactly. Dr. Dave starts asking anyone who'll listen what he did wrong. Carter smiles the smile of a man who's glad someone else is the whipping boy for a change, and tries to hustle Dr. Dave out of there. Dr. Dave tries to make a stand by saying this is his and Carter's patient, and they're not leaving. The original paramedic tells him, "You wanna be a hero in the field? You gotta drop 'em at the door." Dr. Dave dismissively replies, "Shut up." Uh, that paramedic could break you in half, so just step off, Dr. Dave. He finally leaves. Moron. Unruffled, Benton asks Carol to bring him a new kit. Benton!
