Meanwhile, CTB puts her plan into action. First, she calls the operator and tells her to page Cuddy to the nurse's station, stat. Then CTB lights a cigarette for the sole purpose of giving the previews a cool shot. She exhales the smoke in the general direction of the sprinkler system, but it's not enough to set it off. So she just climbs onto the examining table and holds the lighter up to the sprinkler. By the way, I'm pretty sure real hospitals don't have sprinklers that automatically go off at the first sign of danger, drenching everything in sight. The one I worked at had this whole system where someone would call in a fire and then the hospital PA system would page "Dr. Firestone" to wherever the fire was. That way, the employees knew that there was a fire and where it was located, but the patients wouldn't know and therefore wouldn't panic. This was important, since many of them were confined to their beds and sick and stuff. The fire would supposedly be confined behind the fire doors that automatically shut during an alarm, keeping the rest of the hospital safe from the fire without the need for evacuations. The system worked pretty well most of the time, but sometimes there'd be a fire somewhere like a utility closet or the women's bathroom and the PA system would page Dr. Firestone to Stall 3 of the women's bathroom on the second floor and I'm pretty sure people got suspicious. Anyway, employees were supposed to stay where they were during a Dr. Firestone and await further instructions, but at PPTH, everyone responds to the fire drill by running around madly under the pouring sprinklers and probably slipping on the wet floor and breaking hips while the druggies raid the unmanned, open pharmacy. Is that House I see at the Vicodin shelf? CTB approaches the nurse's station for the next part of her cunning plan, but she has been foiled: Cuddy was too busy talking to PS to get to the nurse's station in time. Instead, she's standing outside the Clinic, dry as a bone, looking sad at the disaster that has befallen PPTH yet again, this time in the form of water, water everywhere. PS smiles and waves at CTB. Honestly, though, I don't know what CTB thought this was going to do. It's not like Cuddy was going to get drenched and then shrug and remove her wet panties in front of everybody and toss them aside.
