You coming or not?

00:
03:28,869 -- 00:03:32,033

- All right, I'll get her to you right away.

- Appreciate it.

3

00:
03:33,139 -- 00:03:34,080

- Hi.

iDr. Klyczynski to ER, stat./i

5

00:
03:38,422 -- 00:03:41,460

- Hi, excuse me.

- Yeah, just a minute, okay?

6

00:
03:42,632 -- 00:03:45,813

- Fill this out for me and wait over there.

- No, I'm... I'm Dr. Forster.

7

00:
03:46,009 -- 00:03:47,234

I was told to report here.

8

00:
03:47,392 -- 00:03:50,576

You'll be covering 22 patients

on rounds today, this floor and the next.

9

00:
03:50,772 -- 00:03:52,270

- Twenty-two?

- Quiet morning.

10

00:
03:52,461 -- 00:03:55,098

If you get into trouble, beep me,

but don't make it a habit.

11

00:
03:55,286 -- 00:03:57,580

The med students

will help you out with scutwork.

12

00:
03:57,775 -- 00:04:00,289

What's he doing here?

I ordered an MRI, stat.

13

00:
04:00,479 -- 00:04:03,757

- Transport said about four hours.

- He could be dead in four hours.

14

00:
04:03,950 -- 00:04:05,970

Never mind. Dr. Forster, MRI.

15

00:
04:06,130 -- 00:04:08,026

- A right, two lefts, elevator to two.

- Okay.

16

00:
04:08,251 -- 00:04:10,460

Follow the signs.

Hustle back here for rounds.

17

00:
04:11,354 -- 00:04:12,914

Dr. Kly...

18

00:
04:14,425 -- 00:04:17,608

- Are you taking me somewhere?

- I certainly hope so, sir.

19

00:
04:17,803 -- 00:04:20,349

- How are you feeling today?

- Am..? Am I gonna make it?

20

00:
04:21,091 -- 00:04:23,019

Yes. Absolutely.

21

00:
04:26,896 -- 00:04:28,645

Alex!

22

00:
04:28,833 -- 00:04:32,824

I made my famous spinach pie.

The trailer's nice and toasty.

23

00:
04:33,010 -- 00:04:34,728

I can't.

24

00:
04:37,033 -- 00:04:40,679

Look, it's really cold out here.

Don't get sick on me or anything.

25

00:
04:40,874 -- 00:04:43,169

I never get sick.

26

00:
04:43,855 -- 00:04:47,718

So I heard you bought a house,

and apparently I'm the last one to know.

27

00:
04:47,908 -- 00:04:49,196

I thought I mentioned that.

28

00:
04:49,413 -- 00:04:50,975

Wait.

29

00:
04:51,596 -- 00:04:52,790

Where?

30

00:
04:52,979 -- 00:04:55,095

Outside of town.

Up the shore a little bit.

31

00:
04:55,283 -- 00:04:56,841

Up the shore? There's no houses...

32

00:
04:57,030 -- 00:05:00,656

Oh, God. You don't mean that thing

with the stilts and the..?

33

00:
05:03,084 -- 00:05:06,153

- You all right?

- Yeah. Are you crazy?

34

00:
05:07,384 -- 00:05:09,867

Why would you take that house, Alex?

35

00:
05:10,057 -- 00:05:12,509

It's made of glass. There's no privacy.

36

00:
05:12,699 -- 00:05:14,230

Mona?

37

00:
05:14,635 -- 00:05:16,751

Get yourself some boots.

38

00:
05:19,334 -- 00:05:21,355

Hey, Gonzalez!

39

00:
05:25,787 -- 00:05:27,565

- Four-thirty.

- You lost?

40

00:
05:27,752 -- 00:05:30,569

- Yeah.

- Takes a while to get your bearings.

41

00:
05:30,762 -- 00:05:33,642

- I'm Madhvi.

- Kate Forster. Hi.

42

00:
05:33,834 -- 00:05:36,966

Oh, wrong floor.

Where'd you do your residency?

43

00:
05:37,183 -- 00:05:39,727

Just a little community hospital

up on the North Shore.

44

00:
05:58,840 -- 00:06:02,003

iDear new tenant,/i

iwelcome to your new home./i

45

00:
06:02,219 -- 00:06:03,810

iAs the previous tenant, let me say.../i

46

00:
06:04,032 -- 00:06:06,734

i... I hope you'll like living here/i

ias much as I did./i

47

iwith the post office.../i

48

00:
06:09,959 -- 00:06:12,107

i... but you know/i

iwhat a crapshoot that can be./i

49

00:
06:12,325 -- 00:06:15,667

iSo if anything slips through, would you/i

ido me a favor and forward my mail?/i

50

00:
06:15,890 -- 00:06:19,262

iI'd appreciate it./i

iMy new address is below./i

51

00:
06:19,452 -- 00:06:22,982

iThanks in advance. P.S.:/i

52

00:
06:23,170 -- 00:06:27,307

"Sorry about the paw prints by the front

door. They were there when I moved in.

53

00:
06:27,747 -- 00:06:30,531

Same with the box in the attic."

54

00:
06:32,231 -- 00:06:36,160

Paw prints?

What the hell is she talking about?

55

00:
06:49,129 -- 00:06:52,290

Hey, baby girl. Hi. Hi. Hey.

56

00:
07:02,551 -- 00:07:04,478

Fix the light.

57

00:
07:05,407 -- 00:07:07,366

Get dog food, huh?

58

00:
07:08,327 -- 00:07:10,108

Get human food.

59

00:
07:36,219 -- 00:07:39,164

Hey. Hey.

60

00:
07:43,652 -- 00:07:45,643

Hey, come here.

61

00:
07:54,036 -- 00:07:57,745

Sixty degrees on Valentine's Day.

Can't be Chicago.

62

00:
07:57,938 -- 00:08:00,116

The TV says it's global warming.

63

00:
08:00,273 -- 00:08:03,769

The icebergs start melting,

water covers the Earth.

64

00:
08:03,958 -- 00:08:06,409

Thank God we won't live to see it.

65

00:
08:07,707 -- 00:08:09,026

What's this?

66

00:
08:09,766 -- 00:08:11,578

That's nothing.

It's one of your father's.

67

00:
08:11,763 -- 00:08:14,924

- Dostoyevsky?

- Oh, yeah.

68

00:
08:15,233 -- 00:08:21,068

It's about a guy who breaks the neck

of a poor woman with an axe...

69

00:
08:21,255 -- 00:08:24,752

...and, so far, keeps wandering

around regretting it.

70

00:
08:27,827 -- 00:08:29,179

This is good.

71

00:
08:29,365 -- 00:08:32,497

- Oh, yeah?

- Yeah. It's really good.

72

00:
08:33,604 -- 00:08:34,514

I'll meet you there.

73

00:
08:34,740 -- 00:08:35,997

What are you thinking?

74

00:
08:36,459 -- 00:08:37,748

My folks are coming into town.

75

00:
08:37,966 -- 00:08:39,495

Nothing.

76

00:
08:39,687 -- 00:08:43,583

When your father passed away,

it was hard. It still is hard.

77

00:
08:43,742 -- 00:08:48,286

Holding his books,

I feel like he's with me somehow.

78

00:
08:48,472 -- 00:08:51,018

Knowing that he was once

on the same pages...

79

00:
08:51,206 -- 00:08:53,196

...reading the same words.

80

00:
08:58,025 -- 00:09:01,336

Oh, my God!

Somebody call an ambulance!

81

00:
09:01,989 -- 00:09:03,518

We need an ambulance at Daley Plaza.

82

00:
09:03,741 -- 00:09:06,440

A man has been struck by a bus.

Get an EMT crew here. Sir...

83

00:
09:06,626 -- 00:09:08,343

Get out the street.

Get on the sidewalk.

84

00:
09:08,531 -- 00:09:10,186

- On the sidewalk. Off the street.

- Sir?

85

00:
09:10,375 -- 00:09:12,699

Get on the sidewalk!

Get on the sidewalk!

86

00:
09:12,863 -- 00:09:15,900

I'd like to get the foundation

on number 17 dug today.

87

00:
09:16,455 -- 00:09:19,001

Look, I know you're

kind of new around here, kid.

88

00:
09:19,190 -- 00:09:20,689

What?

89

00:
09:20,881 -- 00:09:23,761

I can't get to 17 until

at least next week.

90

00:
09:23,954 -- 00:09:26,706

Come on, Mulhern.

That's bullshit and you know it.

91

00:
09:26,899 -- 00:09:29,016

Take Clemens and Rodriguez

off of roofing.

92

00:
09:29,205 -- 00:09:31,656

Jorge can run the backhoe

they're not using on 14...

93

00:
09:31,879 -- 00:09:33,869

...and grab four or five

of those other guys...

94
