Marie - Patient room, day. Dr. Cross enters the room where Donald, the MVC patient from earlier is on a vent. His wife Marie is a nervous wreck. Dr. Cross explains that Donald is brain dead. All Marie can do is stand there and weep.
Thom - Dr. Hall charts at the nurse's station and suddenly Thom is there, he's very nervous. He donated his kidney to a friend and now he wants it back. Dr. Hall explains it was a gift and no longer his and that he's better off without it as its risky surgery anyway. Dr. Hall says he
need to be elsewhere, Thom says he will wait. Night - Dr. Hall is on his way out and Thom is waiting by the door. He says he could sue the hospital. Dr. Hall explains that Thom signed away his legal rights when he became a donor. Dr. Hall says it was a gift, to a friend. Thom says he did it to save his life and he threw it away. Dr. Hall tells him to step back or he'll call security. Dr. Clark arrives in time to hear Thom's raised voice. Dr. Clarke says its not anyone's, Donald died from cardiac arrest and the organs aren't viable. Dr. Hall gets it now, Thom says its not fair and Dr. Hall agrees. Thom breaks down saying he was his best friend, he was supposed to save him, he can't just die. He's falling apart, Dr. Hall holds him as he sobs.
Orderly 1 - Outside Donald's room and orderlies wheel a patient out with a sheet over their face. One hands Dr. Mathes a clipboard, she signs. Dr. Mathes says its all just going in the garbage. Orderly 1 is confused and says a funeral home is coming. Dr. Mathes turns to the white board and starts to erase all surgeries.
Social Worker - PICU, night. Dr. Keller and a social worker fill out forms. Dr. Martin says to watch the baby through the night and page if the stats drop and asks if its baby Oscar's file. Dr. Martin asks if the chart stays with him and "his name -- Dr. Shane Ross?" and with that vote of confidence she goes.
Kim - Kim is Jared's (age 7) mom. Jared suffered Byler's Disease since birth and is listed 1B status for a liver transplant. Kim asks Dr. Carter if there's any chance for a transplant, Dr. Carter says they are out of time and they need to go ahead with the diversion procedure. Dr. Carter goes to Jared and tells him they're going to help with feeling sick all the time and the orange color so he won't look like an oompa-loompa. Does that sound good? Jared is quiet and transfixed with Dr. Hall's neck. He's staring at a birthmark and asks Dr. Hall if she is an alien. Kim tells Jared "manners!" and apologized. Dr. Hall says its a valid question and tells Jared I'm not an alien but sometimes it changes colors so I'm kind of like an alien. He leans closer and stares and asks her if she is going to take over Earth. She laughs and says no but then nods "yeeessss". He's blown away. She tells Jared she'll see him in surgery. Fist bump and Dr. Hall leaves, Jared in awe. Post-Op - Dr. Hall drops in on Jared and Kim, asks how he's feeling, he says pretty good. Dr. Hall says he doesn't look like basketball, Jared says she did a good job. She says she made sure they didn't screw up. Tells him to get some sleep. She fist bumps him and heads out to....
Alyssa/Herb - Alyssa (12) and her father Herb (40s) are yelling when Dr. Clark enters. Alyssa is saying it hurts like a bitch, Herb is telling her not to talk like that. Alyssa has had several surgeries and has scar tissue around a spinal tumor. She wants the tumor removed even though it may leave her in a wheelchair. Dr. Weston sits down, takes her hands, telling her she has to have faith that this time it will work. Turns to Dr. Clark and says "Right?". Pause. Dr. Clark says "I'm not sure about that". The room is stunned. Alyssa stares at Dr. Clark like he's her saving grace. Corridor - Dr. Clark passes Herb, hopeless, head in his hands. Dr. Clark asks where Alyssa is, Herb says she was taken for more xrays. He asks Dr. Clark if she has children, she says a little girl. Herb says she has a little girl and can still say he should opt for surgery? Dr. Clark says no, ultimately its Alyssa's decision but she can't make it without his help. Herb is worried about Alyssa being disabled. Dr. Clark tells him Alyssa's case is severe. It won't get worse but her pain will never stop. Herb rethinks things, says its just he and Alyssa and I just don't want to... Dr. Clark says she knows, she's his little girl.
Alyssa's room, day. Herb stands next to Alyssa's bed telling Dr. Clark to tell him again its a good idea. Dr. Clark says that its his opinion that removing the tumor is the only way she will walk again. Herb looks to Alyssa, she wants the surgery. Herb tells Dr. Clark that instead of the scheduled surgery they'd like him to remove the tumor. Alyssa throws her arms around Herb, in tears, thanking her father.
Anne - Dr. Hall and Dr. Barnett are talking when Anne from HR arrives. She says they are ready for Dr. Hall upstairs. Dr. Barnett realizes why Anne is there and says good luck. In the office Anne tells Dr. Hall they have a few questions to go over. The interview continues with Anne asking "at that point, Dr. Barnett handed him the scalpel, correct? And that's when Dr. Clark cut the patient's artery?". Dr. Hall says that's correct. Anne continues "and you had no further contact with Dr. Clart after that incident?". Dr.Hall sighs, this is awful. Her pager goes off, saved by the bell, tells Anne she has an emergency. Anne says no problem, that's all she needed. Dr. Hall asks "I don't need to come back?" Anne says "oh, no, don't worry". Off, Dr. Hall, worried.
