Dress those wounds!

May I help you?

Yeah, my friend has had a New Year's Eve party

and she had a little too much to drink.

She mixed it with some drugs.

Fillthis out and bring it back.

My friend's standing here in a coma.

We need to see a doctor right away!

Fillthis out and bring it back.

It's alright, Cookie. OK. It's alright.

Everything's going to be OK.

We're at the hospital

Everything's going to be OK.

- Cn I see a doctor now, please?

- Just a minute, sir.

I need a Social Security number

and a Medicaid number, if she has one.

I'm assuming she does

since you put ''yes'' in this box.

A photo ID and the address of her next of kin.

My fucking lady's going to die here.

We need a fucking doctor right now!

If I knew the numbers,

I would've written them down!

- I need a fucking doctor!

- You don't use that language with me.

You don't know me. Where did you get off

talking to me like to some tramp?

Nobody talks to me like that

when I'm trying to do my job,

because you know what? I'd let the bitch die!

- What is wrong, Gloria?

- That man has lost his mind.

Doc, the girljust OD'd

and hasn't said a word in an hour.

I'm as scared as fuck that she's going to die.

Gurney!

(COOKIE SCREAMING)

Get off me! Get off!

Let me go!

Shut up, shut up, shut up!

Shut the fuck up!

(COOKIE):

(STRETCH):
First you fuck for an hour,

screaming. Then you make allthis noise.
