Dr. Dave discharges Goth. Carol hands him a chart and says she needs morphine for Mrs. Braga. Dr. Dave pensively repeats, "Braga." Carol says, "Your L.O.L.?" Dr. Dave essentially says "right," and signs off on the chart. Carols asks if he doesn't want to see her. Dr. Dave says he trusts her, and asks if that Roach Coach is out there all day. Carter says it is, and Dr. Dave boots it out there. Wow, I'm thinking Dr. Dave is A Bad Doctor.
On the phone, Carter is checking on some peritoneal fluid he sent somewhere. Elaine sneaks up behind him and blows in the ear that's not on the phone. Ew. He wheels around, whispers "hey," and hands up. She says she was in the neighbourhood and wanted to know if he wanted to go for lunch. He repeats, "'In the neighbourhood'?" evidently waiting for her to tell him she was seeing Corday. But she doesn't, and instead tells him she had a meeting "in the Hancock building." ["For this to be true, County General would really have to be wedged in between Banana Republic and Bloomingdales and all the homeless crack whores with gunshot wounds would be wandering around Crate & Barrel. I'm just saying." -- Wendola] Carter starts to consider whether he can leave when Dr. Dave busts in, with a burly dude in tow, asking who belongs to the paramedic rig out front; because there's been a construction accident down the street. Carter yells after him to hang on, and begs off lunch with Elaine. As he leaves, he says, "Tonight?" She purrs, "Tonight's a given." Uh, hey. I didn't ask, so keep that talk down so that I can keep my dinner down, huh?
Dr. Dave opens the back of the paramedic rig as BurlyDude gives Carter the thumbnail of the accident -- a beam fell on his friend, at a construction site a block and a half away from here. BurlyDude's friend isn't conscious, and it's not clear whether he's breathing. Dr. Dave paws through some equipment and asks Carter if he's coming. Carter tells him to wait, and goes into the front seat of the rig to radio for help. Dr. Dave pounds on the windshield and tells Carter they don't have time, so Carter goes back on the radio and reluctantly adds, "Docs responding."
Dr. Dave (with a red paramedic's bag), Carter, and BurlyDude run down the street toward the accident, where they see a truly impressive pile of girders, underneath which BurlyDude's friend is trapped. A construction worker is cutting through the metal with...I don't know, some kind of tool. Carter calls the guy's name (supplied, by BurlyDude, as Joe Sanders). Carter checks his pulse, but can't see his chest moving. From a different vantage point, Dr. Dave reports that Joe's leg is totally crushed. Carter can reach him, but he can't see what he's doing. Dr. Dave begs Carter to let him do it whatever is necessary to stabilize Joe. Carter asks if Dr. Dave has ever done a blind intervention, and he says he hasn't. Carter tells him that "this isn't a teaching case; find a window. Be my eyes." To make a long story marginally shorter, Dr. Dave guides Carter to Joe's face and Carter successfully intubates him. The paramedics arrive.
