The paramedics bring in a woman who is bloody and having trouble breathing. Pratt starts to treat her, and she asks if her husband is still alive. Sam assures her that her husband is alive, and right behind them. The woman sits up and starts screaming at her husband for being alive, and threatens to kill him. Meanwhile, Luka gets the bullet on the husband.
In Trauma Yellow, Pratt and Sam start working on the wife, who looks a lot like Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's. She explains that her husband cornered her in the kitchen with a knife, so she grabbed a gun. Pratt asks if she's been drinking, so presumably she has alcohol on her breath. He announces that she has a collapsed lung, and that he needs to reinflate it. Chuny walks through and bitches at Sam for not restocking something in the Trauma Rooms, because it was Sam's turn. Sam doesn't remember it being her turn. As Chuny returns to Trauma Green, she bitches about Sam not doing her job, and Luka looks at her sharply, but doesn't say anything. Meanwhile, Jane Wiedlin is still screaming at her husband, Malcolm. Are they sure her lung is collapsed? Because she's able to yell very loudly. Luka intubates while looking over at Sam to make sure she's okay. Dubenko walks in to help out, so Luka walks over to Trauma Yellow. Pratt yells at Sam for not getting the drugs fast enough, and Sam apologizes. Luka offers to help, and Sam yells at him. Pratt asks Jane Wiedlin a series of questions to make sure that she's not delirious or whatever, and finds out that she lives in West Garfield. He comments on it, and Jane snaps, "Do you got a problem with it?" Huh?
Abby reports Ruby's case to Carter, who refuses to check Ruby due to his outburst. Abby says that Carter has to, because Luka's in a trauma and Ruby wants "an experienced physician." After getting the rest of the history, and standing outside sighing for like ten minutes, Carter heads into Ruby's room. Haleh gives them an update on Ruby's tests, and leaves. Carter introduces himself, and Ruby bitches that he didn't forget a thing in ten years, and accuses Carter of treating his wife as "just another old person; give 'em the song and dance and ship 'em off." Carter either genuinely doesn't remember, or acts like he doesn't remember, and tries to change the subject by saying that they're still waiting to hear from Ruby's doctor. Ruby says he knew his wife didn't have much time left, but that he doesn't know why Carter had to put her through so much. Haleh turns and listens. Ruby talks some more about his "sweet Sylvie," and then refuses to let Carter listen to his lungs. Abby says that, as the Attending, Carter has to examine Ruby. Ruby asks if it's a rule or something, and Abby says that it actually is. Ruby reluctantly agrees and tells Carter to make it fast.
