Little Ricky, where are you baby?

Come on, honey. It's dinner time.

It's your favorite flavor. Liver buffet.

Where are you?

There you are.

Hey, what're you doing under there?

What you doing under there?

What's the matter?

Ricky, baby,

what's the matter sweetheart?

They're ready for you, Doctor.

- How is she?

- Still in the OR.

We haven't heard anything yet.

When did this happen?

He was waiting for her at her place

when she got home from class.

Forensics says it was the same man

who raped Cara Latham.

Did you really need a forensics expert

to tell you that?

- Andy.

- Dana, when was the last time

I asked your department to beef up

the security and cameras, right?

I mean not the first four times.

Just the last time.

Don't get pissy with me, Professor.

I don't have the manpower

to break up a frat party.

- Suction.

- Suction.

What's that pressure?

We're under 70. Sixty-nine.

She's sliding down pretty fast.

- We're gonna lose her, Doctor.

- I would not bet my ranch on that.

David, drop 0.2 CCs of epinephrine.

- Tanya, give me the stitch please.

- 3-0 silk.

We're down at 63. Epinephrine, Doctor?

No, not yet.


Still think it's a Phenobarb reaction?



All right.

Ease up on that retraction pressure.

Sixty-five and going up.

Don't worry about that.

- 68.

- I don't believe it.

- 72.

- How about some scissors?

- Metzenbaum.

- Beautiful.

80. She's out of the woods.

- Way to practice medicine.

Irrigation please. - Irrigation.

Dr. Robertson,

would you please close for me?

- You got it.

- Nice going, people.

By the way, everybody,

it's great to be in Saint Agnes.

That was good work.

- Dr. Robertson... May I call you Matthew?

- Of course.


I'm the new guy around here

and I want to make friends,

so I'll say this to you

and we'll start fresh.

If you don't like my jokes, don't laugh.

If you have a medical opinion,

please speak up and speak up loud.

But if you ever again tell me or my surgical

staff that we're going to lose a patient,

I'm going to take out your lungs

with a f***ing ice-cream scoop.

Do you understand me?

I'm not gonna like you, am I?

Don't be ridiculous. Everybody likes me.

- Dr. Hill.

- Yeah.

I'm Andy Safian.

I'm Associate Dean at the college

and I wondered if you could tell me

anything about Bridget Kelly's condition.

Well, she has a badly contused liver,

but I think she's gonna be just fine.

Great. Thanks to you.

Well, come to the midnight show,

I levitate the next of kin.

It's Jed Hill, right?


"Galloping" Jed Hill?

Excuse me.

We were at the high school together.

You're kidding me.

- You went to Van Buren?

- Yeah.

How long you've been in Westerly?

Well, I've been here about nine hours now.

Van Buren, huh?

Yeah, well, we weren't in the same...

We didn't travel in the same circles but...

- Did I give you a hard time?

- No, you didn't know who the hell I was.

Dr. Hill.

Hi, Tanya.

I just wanted to say congratulations.

We're all very happy that you're here.

Well, thank you. It's nice to be here.

Looks like you're big man

on campus again.

- I hope to see you around.

- Yeah, me, too.

That's wonderful, Michelle.

Hey, why don't we try painting

on the paper not on your arm?

- I am a boogeyman.

- Teacher, teacher!

Hey, Jason, don't you ever, ever play

with plastic bags

or I'll tie you up and I'll feed you

to little cape monster. You got it?

Hi. I heard what happened.

Can you go on lunch now?

Give me a minute.

Yeah, the guy got in

when she was out at her class.

- She's gonna be all right?

- Looks like it.

Turns out that your hospital

has a new surgeon,

this whiz kid from Mass General

who did a great job.

So I went back to introduce myself,

to thank him and are you ready for this?

- We went to high school together.

- Oh, no kidding.

- Speak of the devil...

- And the devil appears.

I was just recounting

all your exploits here.

This is my wife, Tracy.

Tracy, this is Dr. Jed Hill.

Any high school friend of Andy's...

- This is Dr. Sullivan, Alan and

Tracy Safian. - Andy.

Andy. Andy works at the college.

- He's associate dean of students.

- Fantastic.

I don't leap tall buildings

in a single bound.

- But we are very proud of him.

- That's well. You should be.

Listen, we're having a small reception

to welcome Jed to Saint Agnes.

Why don't you come along?

We'd love to,

but we have a lunch appointment.

Maybe some other time.


- Nice meeting you, Tracy.

- Yeah, nice to meet you.

Well, we got the estimate

from the plumber this morning.


- Are you ready for this?

- How much?

It's 13,000 and change.

How much change?

It's 14,000.

All right, forget it.

I'm gonna do the work myself.

- I got a better idea.

- No.

Well, just for a little while.

It'll pay some bills.

We rent it to

some visiting lecturer or something.

I don't want to rent out the third floor.

I don't want a stranger in our house.

All right, suit yourself.

Would've been nice living in a home

with running water but...

I'm a simple girl.

- Hey, I'm gonna pick you up after work.

- No, it's okay.

Forget it. I'm gonna pick you up.

There's a maniac loose in this town.

Helen can give me a ride.

- She can? Are you sure?

- Yeah. Yes.

Make sure she waits

until you're inside the house.

I'll have her provide air coverage

if you want.

It's funny. I married a funny woman.
