Johnnie Cochran: Watch it.
So, anyway, we're next at the scene of a horrible crime. Doc and Carlos get their stuff as Ty greets them. There's been a shooting. Doc walks by a window with a huge bullet hole shot through it. We get whooshing camera moves as they enter the scene. Lots of bloody people. It looks like a diner or small restaurant. People are lying in pools of their own blood. Glimpses, flashes of dead or near-dying people. Sully pops his head up to call Doc over, saying he's got one that's still alive. Doc rushes over. Doc looks down at a young, very attractive black woman who is alive, but whose head is surrounded by blood on the floor. She looks up pleadingly, breathing shallow breaths. She looks like she was shot in the upper right shoulder. We cut to a woman trying to get inside the restaurant, calling out, "Tanya!" We'll guess this is the mother. Doc looks concerned, but doesn't seem to be doing much of anything. He just looks down. Cut immediately to the Third Watch theme song. I can hear Cosa hopping up and down in the next room.
Why must the Gods show me previews that make me actually want to see Charlie's Angels? It's not fair, I tell you. And that Destiny's Child song just adds insult to injury. How did they know I own their CD?
We come back to L'il Doc opening the door to paramedics. You can tell this was in the '70s because the African-American paramedic has a bushy 'fro while the white one has a bushy John Holmes moustache. Tinkly-spooky music is playing. They're treating the man on the couch. The black paramedic looks to L'il Doc and gives him a little nod and wink. L'il Doc smiles weakly.
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.
