When the call came

in I was thinking

Multiples from the accident.

No, there's just one.

My wife met a drop-dead

gorgeous girl at the office.

Why are you always

trying to fix me up?

I'm your friend.

I'm looking out for you.

You work too hard.

Well, you can't

have a relationship

And this job at the same time.

Works for me.

Well, let's go,

William, duty calls.

All right, let's

get him into x-Ray.

Let's go, let's go.

This kid got a name?

Sean Addison, 19 years old.

Two-car collision

on the interstate.


Both legs are broken.

His pelvis is fractured.

But he's awake and responding --

His ultrasound is positive,

his abdomen's pretty tight,

He's a tough kid.

I'm worried about that

internal bleeding.

Hey, how you doing?

That's a dumb question.

Doc, it's real

important to my mom

That I get home

in time for Christmas.

Let's do this:
Let's get

you home for Christmas.


Okay, Sean,

I want you to start counting

back from ten for me.

Ten, nine, eight...

Get him protamine.

Damn it!

I need to get a clamp

on the iliac to grab it.

It's okay, it's okay.

It's not okay.

Come on, Sean,

c'mon, hang in there.

More surgicel and gelfoam.

We need a sponge.

We're losing volume,

we need pressure.

Get two units of blood.

The bleeding's out of control!

We are losing pressure.

Come on, Sean, come

on, hang in there.

We're losing him,

we're losing pressure!





Come on, Sean, come on.

Damn it!




(water running)

You did everything

you could, we all did.

I can't do this anymore.

It's not your fault.

I blew it.

Look, every surgeon

has gone through

What you're going through.

I lost him.

Things go wrong,

things beyond our control.

You don't understand,

I promised this kid I'd have

him home for Christmas.

I understand there's

a family sitting out there

We have to help through this.

I lost him.

Give me your wallet.


Hey, dad.

What are you doing here?

I'm just taking a few weeks

off from the hospital.

You're on vacation?

Well, I'm a little burnt out,

but yeah, sure, I'm on vacation.

Wilsonville's not my

idea of a vacation,

But, you know,

whatever turns your crank.

What, can't a guy take some time

off and bond with the old man?


Are you feeling all right?

Shoes...They would be...



Man on CD:

Como esta usted.

Como esta usted.

Como esta usted?

Como esta usted?

Yo estoy bien.

Yo estoy bien.

Yo estoy bien.

Yo estoy bien.

Mui bien.


(Spanish continues indistinct)


Ah, disculpe.

Trabajas tu aqui?

Eschuche me.

Eschucha me?

Trabajas tu aqui?

I'm sorry, I don't

speak...I wish I did.

I really wish I did.

I got it, I got it,

I got it dad.

I got it, I got it.

Can I...

Ah, si, si, si.

These books are a mess.

Let me see the Bill, Jack.

You're family, I'm not

going to charge you.

I just want to see it.

It's in here somewhere --

I'll stick it in the mail.

I know this lady

at church, Lydia.

Smart as a whip!

She's got half

the businesses in town online.

Nice lady.

Lost her husband about six years

ago, sings in the church choir.

I'll call her.

Okay, okay.

(Spanish on CD player)

Como se llamo usted?

Me llamo Meghan.

Hey, ma'am, you just picked up

a nail, but you're good to go.

Yo pienso tengo un poco dinero?

No, no, no money.

No dinero.

Just come back as a future

customer, that's good enough.


(car starts)

You're cute, Mr. Mechanic.

Muchas gracias!

Well, I'll be.

Hi, grandma.

Don't call me that.
