Finch and Mark inspect an X-ray. He: you need an ortho surgeon. She: they're ignoring my pages. He: call the attending and tell them you're Kerry. She: this program is about to perform an illegal operation and will close down. She books, and Chen flags down Mark to tell him she has a nine-year-old patient who got hit in the larynx with his skateboard and is pretty hoarse. Blah blah emphysema blah strider blah sats blah blah secretions blah visualize cords blah scope. While Dr. Dave rages on the phone about something in someone's lower right quadrant, Mark examines Chen's patient and tells Chen that she'll need to call the head-and-neck attending (Dr. Dave: "He's too sick for a jump test!"), but Chen says they're all either in surgery or out at the conference. Mark asks Chen to hold on and asks Dave if he has a problem. Dr. Dave says that his patient has been experiencing vomiting and diarrhea for two days, but that Elizabeth (here he indicates the phone) says that's "not a good story for an" appendectomy. Because all the surgeons are out. At the conference. Remember? Dr. Dave tells Mark that the patient has developed even more indications of appendicitis, and that he's told Elizabeth that, but that she still won't come down. Well, Dave, maybe if you weren't the doc who diagnosed wolf, she'd be a little more accommodating. Also, between you and me, your hair doesn't confer upon you very much authority. Mark thanks Elizabeth and hangs up the phone, telling Dr. Dave to follow him.
Lisa finds Weaver and confirms that Weaver paged her. Weaver hands Lisa a couple of glass bottles and asks her to take them to Exam Four. Lisa: why am I here? Weaver: we're short nurses. Lisa: I'm an OB nurse. Weaver: you're planning to go back to med school, and if you work here you'll get experience that will put you way ahead when you come back as a student. Lisa: that should only take me two more years. What? Is that right? I thought she'd only lose a semester! Is it because it'll take her that long to earn the money to pay her tuition? I don't understand! Help me! I'm cold, and there are wolves after me! Luka, who's hunkered down checking the baseboards for any cockroaches he could dispatch, pipes up to tell her, "It's really not so bad down here, Abby." "Oh yeah? Compared to what?" she whines. Um. Compared to Forces of Nature?
