Conni, Carter, Carol "Priss" Hathaway, and a bunch of paramedics are hoisting the OD'ed guy onto a bed in a trauma room. Doris -- who has cut her hair into a much shorter, way sassier style -- says that they found empty Benadryl packs in his bathroom. Adam -- the patient -- is slurring, "I just want to die!" Carol asks if he took anything else, and he moans, "Leave me alone!" Carter orders a bunch of tests, and Conni asks him to "scoot over" so she can "put on the dynamap." Carter peevishly asks why Conni can't do that on the other side, and she points out that the IV is on the other side. Carter crutches very slowly to the opposite side of the bed. Randi appears in the doorway to tell Carol she has a call from her nanny. Carol yells at Randi to tell the nanny to hold, muttering to Carter, "She's new." Carter tells her to take it, so she does. Excuse me, but...a nanny? On the salary of a single nurse in a county hospital? Is there some kind of government-subsidized nanny program in the U.S. of which I'm not aware? Or maybe she got the money from Doug? Or considers it a worthwhile expense now, since she knows eventually she'll be able to put the twins in day care at the hospital? In any case, she picks up the phone and, as the rest of the staff works on Adam -- who is clearly in some distress -- suggests that the nanny try "the bouncy seat" or "running the vacuum" to stop one of the twins from crying. Adam pushes at Carter and tells him to "get away," and promptly starts crashing, at which point Carol finally gets off the phone and returns to the task at hand. Carol asks Carter if he's okay, and he says he is, and calls for some soft restraints for Adam. Carol, Carter's not the one on the bed. Get on the trolley.
Lisa works on her patient, Kim, and notes that he has a lot of fluid in his abdomen. He growls, "So the colon cancer spread?" She confirms that it has. He says his doctors had told him that might happen if he didn't respond to "the chemo." Still feeling around, she suggests they tap his belly, and he winces and says, "It's pretty tender." Going for "cheery," she chirps, "Can I interest you in some morphine?" Dr. Dave, working on the nosebleed patient behind Lisa, practically falls over from eavesdropping so intently. Kim says, "Really? Last time they wouldn't give me anything until my labs came back and I saw a surgeon." Lisa opines, "Nobody should sit around in pain." At this, Dr. Dave sidles over and appreciatively says, "I see you've been paying attention on rounds." She thanks Dr. Dave and takes off to get Kim some morphine, just as Chen comes in to attend to Cute Frank the ICU Nurse. He's sitting in bed, using the table to make up "the April nursing schedule." She tells him that he should be "on the monitor," and he insists that he's fine, but she insists that he doesn't have a choice, so he obliges her by sitting back in bed, and obliges me by taking off his shirt. Hel-lo, nurse! Chen reads his blood pressure from his chart, and glances up in the middle to be caught off-guard by the sight of his naked, sexy torso, but manages to get both numbers out with her professionalism mostly intact. Frank tells her ninety over sixty is a normal blood pressure for him: "You know, all those years of triathlons and stuff like that." Chen primly informs him that they still have to monitor him. Frank says he knows why he fainted; he ran twelve miles to work, and skipped both breakfast and lunch. Damn. Dr. Dave, observing Chen's ministrations to her totally hot patient, makes this weird frog face. Chen offers to get Frank something to eat from the cafeteria, but he declines, saying he never eats there. Chen stares at Frank's bare chest some more, and, to cover, asks what's on his chain. He says it's a Roman coin, and that he found it "while [he] was diving in the Mediterranean." Dr. Dave scoffs to himself. Chen, overcome by the proximity of such a fine example of masculinity, fumbles with the leads on the monitor, and Frank offers to help her with them. She giggles. Her professionalism gets up and goes out to the ambulance bay for a smoke. Dr. Dave asks Chen if she needs any help, and she quickly tells him she's got it under control. Dr. Dave, it's not like you ever had a shot, so just get over yourself.
