Omar: Hey, uh, Enya, is it? Want something to drink?
Enya: Perhaps a chateau bordeax with some brie?
Omar: Budweiser it is.
Back from commercial, Kim is now watching through the glass. The doctor says there's major vessel damage and they'll have to take Bobby to the OR. The nurse says he's "Bradying down." Does that mean he's wearing bellbottoms and living with two brothers and three sisters? Wing, I've never recapped ER; what on Earth is she talking about? ["Pfft. Like I know. I usually gloss over all that medical junk." -- Wing Chun] Carlos is watching too, looking intense. Doc is watching, head cocked, looking like a zombie. "Mmmm, brains," he muses. As we get a shot of Bobby's face, oxygen gear on him, he suddenly flashes back to his childhood running-up-stairs days. We instantly flash back to the present as the doctor tries to shock him back to life. "Clear!" he announces. Kim closes her eyes and looks away. The doctor whips out the thoracotomy tray. Kim flatly says that they're going to open his chest. "Come on, you don't wanna see this," Zombie Doc tells her. Kim doesn't budge. The doctor is doing chest compressions on Bobby and orders the rib spreader. Damn, damn, damn. Enya looks away, humming something reassuring to herself under her breath. The doctor pulls out a wicked tube and shoves it into a huge, flat, gaping hole in Bobby's side. It's like it's a pita and the doctor is trying to stuff it with feta cheese and grilled chicken. We pull back for a wide angle of the entire room. A doctor gets up and straddles Bobby on the table (wait a minute, that's no doctor! Hee hee) as the gang watches. Bobby is carted out of there as Kim, Doc, and Carlos stand, stunned. What follows is a truly magnificent shot of the cleared-out exam room. Blood on the floor. Shoes, scrubs. A woman comes in with a mop and starts cleaning it out. Kim, Carlos, and Zombie Doc watch as the woman runs a mop across a blood puddle.
We pan across an operating room that looks to be surrounded by total darkness. Okay, am I the only one who can see some bad in that? Hey, Ed Bernero wrote this episode! What's up, Ed? We pan over Bobby and around to above his head. Two huge tubes that look like they're from The Matrix are putting airy goodness into his mouth. We go into The Mind of Bobby. Young Bobby and Young Paulie are playing around in autumn. Young Paulie shoves Young Bobby and then runs off laughing.
