We come back to Doc straddling the restaurant shooting victim's chest as he is giving her CPR. Carlos and Morales help wheel her into the ER on the stretcher. Tanya Adams, as she is identified, is a bloody mess. They swap her to a table and start working on her. Doc looks on, unwilling to leave. Carlos finally has to pull Doc away. Wait, Doc has treated people before, right? Some who have almost died? Why is he so frazzled all of a sudden?
"Hey brother-man," a man says to Doc in the waiting room. The man, an older gent named Harry, comes up and complains to Doc that he still hasn't been attended to. Doc tells the man that they're busy, what with women bleeding to death from gunshot wounds. Harry raises his voice because he's bleeding from a small cut. "Don't bleedin' mean a damn thing in this piss-ass hospital?" Piss-ass? That's a new one. Doc tiredly tells the man that he always sticks up for Harry, gives him "play" and shows him respect. Now, he's asking for the same. Like a silver bullet, it works. The man calms down, sits, and obeys Doc. Doc, it appears, is part Jedi. Carlos comes in and as they're leaving, Carlos says, "Hey, Harry, remember, next forty, pinkie up." Snide, much? Tanya Adams' mother comes in. "They have her in a trauma room," Doc tells her. "What does that mean?" she yells impatiently. Um, my guess is it means she's in the trauma room. She yells for someone to help her. Doc looks worn out and the episode just started.
Newscast: A newscaster named Hayley Friend (who is actually Nancy O' Dell from Access Hollywood) is reporting from the scene of the shootings. She reports that five people are "dead or wounded." Doc watches at the station as some other guy sits on a couch next to him. Hayley talks about a woman who was killed, a schoolteacher whom Carlos had treated. She was DOA. "What about Tanya?" Doc asks. "She doesn't rate a mention?" Wait, I thought she was still alive. Don't dead people get priority? The unidentified guy sitting next to Doc says, "I thought they said four others." Doc responds, "As long as they said 'others.'" As they go to the main room, Carlos comments on how hot the reporter his. Kim and Bobby enter. They're talking about the schoolteacher. "A white woman teaching in this neighborhood? She should have stayed out in the 'burbs," Kim says. Whoah! This will be the first of many dumb Kim remarks for this episode. Doc asks about the shooters. They're identified as mid-twenties and black. Nothing more specific. Carlos says he wouldn't want to be a mid-twenties black guy in the neighborhood today. "True that," Kim says. Doc gives her a look. "What?" she asks. "I watch television." Oh, I see. This is the episode where Kim is a dumbass. Er, the latest episode where Kim is a dumbass. Doc looks pensive.
