Who Turned Out The Lights
Bells are ringing and the lights are out in the hospital, as Geiger
passes Birch in the hall:
JG: What's the matter, Alan, didn't pay the electric bill?
Geiger continues walking to a stuck elevator full of people who are
trying to get off:
KA: Everybody OK?
JG: Boy oh boy, that's some big Magilla. I don't believe this.
I gotta walk down six flights. [He heads for the stairs.]
KA: Hey Jeff, Jeff. I know a faster way down. Step on over.
I'll even give you a push. C'mon.
JG: Such misplaced hostility.
JG: Kate, you should really consider seeing a therapist. You know
Ray Kadalski? [John Sutton comes off the elevator.]
JS: Here I am. You owe me a hundred bucks.
KA: I don't have a hundred bucks.
JS: Well, I'll take it out on trade. [He gives her a big kiss.]
KA: You're bad. Oh listen, I am so late for a meeting. Would you
come find me later?
JS: You come find me.
KA: No, that's no fun. Besides, it will help you learn your way
around here. Nay, you come find me. [She leaves.]
JG: Excuse me. I'm uh... I'm Dr. Jeffrey Geiger.
JS: John Sutton, OB-GYN.
JG: One of those touchy-feely OBs?
JG: Whatever that means. Listen, I-I don't like stickin' my nose
where it doesn't belong, coarse uh... nobody's ever accused me
of being shy, but I-I couldn't help noticing you and Kate
Austin. You seem to know each other quite well.
JS: Yeah, you could say that... we're married. Hell of a storm
out there, huh?
Shutt is trying to thread Mr. Crossland's catheter in the OR. A
Johnny Cash tape is playing:
AS: Where's Geiger? [JG enters the OR.]
JG: You rang?
AS: Yes. Mr. Crossland here presented with a bleeding ABM has now
developed fluid in his right lung, probably blood.
JG: Blood in his lung, catheter in his brain. Phillip thinks he
has problems with a couple of lousy generators. ... Need to
take a peak. [He wants to move the fluoroscope.]
JG: Just a peak. Pull back the catheter. I want to find the dissection.
AS: Do you know what a mother it has been threading this catheter?
I'm half way to the bleeder.
JG: Well, I'm impressed, I'm awed, and I'm insisting. Pull back
AS: The man has a grade 5 bleed. If I don't stop it, he'll die.
JG: Well, the transected aorta could kill him too. What is this,
too much to ask? ... Even if it is, I'm still insisting. Pull
it back. [AS hesitates but gives in just as Johnny Cash is
singing "I hang my head and cry."]
Move. Little bit more. Oops, stop. Give me a shot of dye.
There it is, transected aorta distal to the left subclavian.
[to AS] You're a prince. [JG pats him on the back.] Hey
[Joslyn?], we'll be doing an aortic repair. I'm gonna scrub.
By the time I get back, you better be done.
AS: I'll be done when the procedure's finished.
JG: Five minutes.
JG: Seven, tops.
AS: Don't rush your scrub.
Geiger returns with Austin:
JG: What are you doing over there? I can't believe you're not done yet.
AS: Working as fast as I can.
KA: Pass the catheter through the true [?]. I'm impressed.
AS: Oh terrific! We're losing the fluoroscope.
JG: Generator must be crappin' out. Scalpel.
AS: No no no wait! I did not cath this man just to lose him now.
KA: Aaron, we can't wait, OK?
JG: Well, for once we agree.
AS: I'm almost at the bleeder, will you stop please?
JG: Aaron, I'm gonna open him up. You got two minutes left.
JG: Folks, this is for all the marbles. Let's go.
KA: Let's get the suction hooked up.
Austin is singing (with a country twang) to the music playing in
KA: [singing] We got married in a fever. Hotter than a peppered sprout.
JG: I got to get around this vessel.
KA: Let me get it.
JG: No no, I'll do it. ...
I can't get around the clot.
KA: Here, let me try.
JG: No no, I'll do it. What are you doing?
KA: Found it.
JG: Really? Sure? [Blood spurts out on Geiger.]
KA: Yep, I'm sure.
JG: All right, there you go. Times up, Aaron. We're at the transection.
AS: I'm just at the bleed.
JG: All right, pull the cath.
JG: Aaron, it's time.
BP's dropping. I've got both lungs wide open.
JG: We're not waiting. ... Get that out of the way. Try to keep up.
We're below the numbers!
JG: Aaron. Get out, Aaron.
KA: 1-2-3 clamp.
JG: Nuts! [AS sits down.]
KA: C'mon Aaron. Why don't you sing?
AS: Man, I hate country music. ...
JG: [JG and KA are working well together.] [to KA] You're good.
Aaron, can't say ya didn't give it a try.
AS: And scored.
KA: Got the ABM, you stopped the bleeding?
AS: Mmmm hmmm. And I didn't even need a second pair of hands.
[JG and KA look at each other.]
Walking out of the OR after the operation:
JG: Could be real touch and go for Mr. Crossland for a couple of days.
KA: [singing] If you can get it--
AS: [singing] And you can get it--
JG: If you try.
KA: What a shame, we don't get along like this all the time.
JG: [washing up] Crying shame.
KA: Hey Jeffrey, uh... by the way, I wanted to thank you for that
deposition tonight. I owe you one. [JG takes the flashlight
[to AS] Your friend there is causing a lot of humiliation lately.
AS: Well, he thought he was right... and when Jeffrey thinks he's
right, he's a... he's a nightmare from hell. He's a passionate guy.
KA: Oh please, passionate. If I behaved like that, I'd be called
what? An emotional bitch. I don't get you guys. Why do you
let him get away with it? I don't know, I do learn from him
though. Every time I stand across from him in the OR, boom,
I learn something. He's amazing.
Austin and Shutt are in the hall making plans for a date:
AS: I can't wait.
JG: [listening around the corner] Did you know she was married?
KA: Oh, I'm not.
JG: Are too.
KA: I am not!
JG: [to AS] Meet you in the cafeteria. [leaves via the stairs,
shaking his head.]
KA: I'm not married. I'm not married. I'll explain that on our
