Cut to the three of them in a hallway, as Dalgety vows not to let Donge get away with it. He's pushing Lumley somewhere in a wheelchair, but is called away to an OR. He tells Yang to take Lumley to a call room. Yang protests that she can't be involved with another Macedonian procedure. Lumley, terrified, asks what that is. Dalgety promises Yang that it's not a Macedonian. Lumley again asks what that is. Yang tells him that it's an unauthorized procedure. Dalgety claps her on the shoulder and assures her that it'll be authorized, and that Hickenlocher's going to be the one to authorize it.
Meanwhile, Joyner and Levi are still in Pruitt's room. Joyner apologizes for ditching him in the last episode, and he says it's not a big deal. He adds that she seems like a lonely lady. Joyner appreciates him doing her the favor of asking her out so much that she considers stabbing him with her pen. Kellerman interrupts before things get ugly, and asks what's going on. She indicates Pruitt and says she needs a quick consult. She blows out some medical terms, and Kellerman toots out a few of his own. The sum of it all is that Pruitt needs a transplant. "That is absolutely insane," Joyner declares. "The guy robbed a convenience store at gunpoint, executed the owners for fifty bucks, and you want to give him a heart."
Fade to the conference room, where Joyner is making the same argument before a group of doctors and administrators. A doctor agrees with Joyner. Kellerman points out they have an obligation to provide Pruitt with medical care. Coones concurs. Joyner accuses him of being afraid of the ACLU. Coones starts to deny that, then cops to it. Joyner points out that "six thousand people die a year waiting for transplants." Kellerman counters that they don't "only transplant nice people." She fumes that Pruitt "slaughtered a family." Pangborn tries to referee. One of the doctors snaps that she and Coones don't even belong there. They argue that they're trying to make sure the hospital doesn't get sued. Pangborn asks if there's a medical basis for denying Pruitt. Joyner argues that his life expectancy is a few months, and they "deny eighty-year-olds on that basis alone." Kellerman says that Joyner doesn't know whether Pruitt will be dead, since his execution is under appeal. Joyner points out that the appeal could go either way, and they could end up wasting the organ. Another doctor pipes up that wasting a heart is criminal. Pangborn asks if they can wait for Pruitt's appeal. Kellerman squashes that by saying Pruitt won't live that long without a transplant. Joyner asks what about Mr. Farrell, expositing that he and Pruitt are the same size and blood type, so they'd be up for the same heart. Someone adds that Pruitt is sicker, so he'll bump Mr. Farrell from the top of the list. Joyner demands, "What happens if Farrell dies before another heart becomes available?" Kellerman informs her, "We're doctors. We make medical decisions. Not emotional ones." "Spare me, Kellerman," Joyner sighs, taking the words right out of my mouth. Pangborn jumps in again, saying that Kellerman has heard how his colleagues feel, but he's the head of the team, so the decision rests with him. Kellerman weighs it briefly, then says, "Pruitt goes on the list." There's a murmur of disgust as everyone but Joyner and Kellerman file out. Joyner slams her clipboard on the table and snarks, "You go tell Farrell. You tell him." Kellerman gets a few minutes to be alone with his ethics as we head to commercials.
