RORISH: Previously on "Code Black"...

- Willis!
- Rox!

Ariel's missing. She ran away, we think.

The OB program that Mr. Avila

- put me up for?
- Yeah.

- It's in Philadelphia.
- You wanna break up.

[WHISPERS] I don't want to, Mario.

That's a cool tat. Whose idea was that?

My brother's. He got the same one.

Who are you?!

I have him on a -hour psych hold.



MAN: Mayday, mayday,
this is flight - - .

We have lost both engines
and we are going down.

We're in the process of dumping fuel

and are in need
of an emergency landing...














What was that?

Listen up. We all just keep working

until someone lets us know
what's going on.

All right, get back to work.

Hey, there was some kind of
expl*si*n upstairs.

I was in dispatch. FD's sending trucks.

Good. We need your hands.
Start a FAS. Quick.

Noa? Stay with me, okay?

- Stay with me.

Where's my dad? She was with him.

Pulse rate's . Let's go.
She's bleeding out!

M.A.P.'s dropping.
She's going into shock.

Focus. Noa needs your focus.

I can't get this bleed.
I need a foley catheter now.

- Pulse check.
- Come on, Joy. Come on.

- No pulse.
- You have to save her.

All right, we gotta find out
what that was,

and I need to move my prisoner.

Hey, listen, you can arrest her tomorrow.

But right now, we need your help.

Daddy, she's coding.

Now whatever these girls
did, it can wait.

Right now we're in crisis.

Incoming. Okay, we got falling
debris outside.

Lot more injured coming in.


Everybody, stay calm.



Four more stitches. Put 'em in.

Close up fast. I got all
these people downstairs.

Hey, wait. Wait, wait.
Where are you going?

To see what the hell is going on.

- Man, you doing this or what?
- Yeah.

Yeah. I need a - and a needle driver.

Hey, we all work together,
we're outta here in seconds.

Let's go. Let's go get
the next one there.




- Hey, hey, hey!

A bird strike.

Took out both engines over mid-city.

- Pilot? Survivors?
- passengers.

- Okay.
- I don't know how many d*ad.

Hey! Take him downstairs
to the E.R. right now.

Get as many people safe as you can.

Anyone who can't walk, you carry.

Hang on. Hey. Get, uh...

- Vanessa.
- Get Vanessa downstairs.

Wait, are you crazy?

- I-I can't leave them!
- No, no.

I won't go anywhere until
everyone's off this floor,

you understand? Move. Move.







- Dillan, I said to help me down.
- Shh, Joy! The neighbors.

Probably a million years old.


- Oh, hey, we made it.
- Come on.



[CHUCKLES] All right,
that's enough for you.

Let's see. What do we got?

DEAMN: ♪ Give me your love ♪

Wait. [LAUGHS]

Are you sure it's okay
that we crash here?

This place will be tied up
in probate forever.

Joy's dad's a real estate agent.


- Foster dad.
- Whatever.

I crashed here for a week once.
We're fine for a couple days.

Okay, if you say it's cool,
then I guess it's cool.

It's very, very, very cool.

- ♪ Give me your love ♪
- Your turn.

Um, I think I need a drink first.

Can I see that?

♪ Give me your love ♪

LEANNE: Maybe I shouldn't be here.

If Ariel comes home, and I'm not there,

she's gonna think I gave up
looking for her.

No way. I'm going home.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey. You haven't.

Ariel's been gone two weeks.

But you can't keep pacing
around the house.

And when she does come back,
you gotta be strong for her.


[SIGHS] I'm just... I'm scared for her.

Me, too.





Dinner with Diego and his dad
and a recruiter

from Rowland-Grant Hospital,
and you can still say "wow""

I guess.

Didn't read the fine print
on this breakup.

You're gonna get this OB gig.

And you're gonna crush
your first day as an attending.

We don't have to do this whole
make-each-other-feel-good thing.

I wasn't.

Sorry. I should go.

How's our climber?

Clark Behar, ,

training for a solo free climb
on Mount Baldy.

Fell, dislocated his knee,

and lacerated his popliteal artery.

Got greedy. [GRUNTS]
Conditions were no good.

Why didn't you just turn around?

Well, you get to a certain point,
you can't go down. You gotta go up.

- Spiritual.
- Practical.

Okay, boys, what's our estimated
ischemic time?

Less than minutes.
Chopper got him here fast.

Nurse! Let's get him upstairs.

Mr. Behar, we will save your
leg, but we have to do it now.

Wait, I don't have to go under, do I?

Well, we can give you
an epidural to numb your leg

and keep you awake if you prefer.

Okay, good. Anesthesia freaks me out.

- He climbed Mount Everest.
- I had a rope.

Well, the nurse upstairs is
gonna prep you for surgery,

and I'll see you soon.

[SCOFFS] You don't need
to call a scrub nurse.

- I can handle it.
- Actually, you can't.

I'm taking you off surgical rounds

and transferring you back to the ED.

I'm not a surgical resident anymore?

I haven't made up my mind.
But in the meantime,

you might wanna check in
with the E.R. attending.

- Don't smirk.
- I'm not smirking.

Just say it.

I'm an attending now, so technically...

You don't need the drumroll.

You work for me. Come on.

If you wanna get back upstairs,
you gotta to fight for it.

Hmm. Like you did with Noa?

- It's different.
- How?

You're giving up.

We're taking a break.

You're giving up.

- You work for me.



- [BEEP]
- All right.

Give you a minute to catch your breath,

- then we'll do another set.
- What, are you trying to k*ll me?

Ah, what doesn't k*ll
you, makes you stronger.

Hear, hear.

- Show me those hands.

- Now squeeze them.


- Down.

Down. So I hear you're being
discharged in a few days, huh?

out of motor function. All symmetric.

Yeah, two more months of
physical therapy,

but so far, so good.

I wish the county was
paying me to work out.

- All you have to do is get hit by a car.

I haven't heard from Ethan.

Well, he's, you know, he's pretty busy.

He hasn't said anything.
Nothing to you at all?

He gets me all the way down to San Diego

and then disappears when I wake up?


WOMAN: All right, break's over.

I admit it. I am trying to k*ll you.


- You know Willis.

Just focus on getting better.

He'll come when he can.



- It's been hours.

I'm not a danger to myself
or anyone else.

You have to let me go. That's the law.

It's hours.

So what do you want to talk about?

The Lakers.

How about that conversation
you were having in your cell?

- Who were you talking to then?
- Nobody. Myself.

Just yourself?

I was talking to myself.
People do that, but I stopped.

I wonder why.

I was tired.

I'm upset. I was trying
to save my friend's life.

I see.

You're a hero.

I didn't say that, but I did
save my friend's life.

- And I got arrested for it.
- Mm-hmm.

When I should be back at Angels
making sure that she's okay.

You know, I have never found one...

a real hero.

There are people all around us
who do heroic things,

and then they go right back
to being human.

It's the second part, Colonel,
living among the rest of us,

that you need to work on.

And it's gotta be you that does the work.

Nobody can do it for you.

So you're saying you failed me.


You wanna blame other people
for where you are,

you're never gonna get well that way.

Look, I'm sure that you've
helped a lot of soldiers.

But I gotta get back to work.



- Okay, what do we got?
- -year-old male collapsed at dinner.

Heart rate in the s.
One liter NS bolus given.

I can't catch my breath,
and my heart... it's pounding.

Okay, let's get him inside. Let's go.

His name is Phil Richardson.
He was fine an hour ago.

Okay, Phil, I'm Dr. Guthrie.
This is Dr. Dixon.

- We're gonna take care of you.

- You're okay.
- You're back.

I'm back.

I need some nurses!

WOMAN: Behind you!

All right, what do you need, Dr. Rorish?

I need an EKG.

On my count. One, two, three.

- I'll be fine.
- Your husband is in good hands.

- Oh. We're not married.
- No. We met years ago.

We had the most amazing night together.

- [CHUCKLES] Phil.
- Am I wrong?

She wore these suede shorts. [CHUCKLES]

- I can draw her from memory.
- Life took us in different directions.

He moved to Montreal.

And yesterday,
I'm sitting at a stop sign,

and I was checking my phone,
which I shouldn't do,

- and I got rear-ended.
- And it was me.

It's like a miracle.

For years, I just wondered,
what about Phil?

- What might've been?
- And the universe answered.

- What do you see, Dr. Dixon?

- A-fib RVR.
- What's that?

An arrhythmia.

Has he had any heart palpations
lately or fainting spells?

- Phil!

He's hypotensive. BP's over .

He's unstable. Grab a crash cart.

- Charge it to joules.
- What's happening?

- Dr. Rorish, I can do this.
- I know you can.

- Clear.

Still irregular,
but heart rate has slowed.

BP's improved.

Okay, let's get him on a fluid bolis

then get him up to X-ray and get an echo.

He's gonna be okay, right?
We just met. I mean, re-met.

Don't worry. We're gonna
do everything we can

to keep the miracle going.

Where's mine?
Didn't see 'em at the house.

Dad got 'em. I got the flag.

Talking to yourself, huh?

Had to get out of there somehow.

And go where?

Go see Rox. Make sure she's going okay.

Right. She's at a hospital full
of brilliant doctors,

but she needs you to make sure.

That's right.

- [SCOFFS] You know how you sound?
- I'm fine.

[SIGHS] You're not fooling me.

You may have everyone else
in here fooled, but not me.

Hey. You need to stop
following me around.

- Stop following me around.
- I'm serious.

I'm not going anywhere. You know why.

Heard you needed a ride, son.


Ah, they've graduated
from drawing genitals.

Um, I'm fine.

You ever tried it?

- Yeah, sure.
- Liar.

Best ride you can get for bucks.

- ♪ Don't worry, baby, don't you cry ♪

♪ As long as we keep getting high ♪

♪ Keep burning like
we're never gonna die ♪

Hey. Joy. Joy.
Joy, this isn't funny. Joy?

You okay? Dillan! Dillan! Dillan!

RORISH: I'm sorry, but this is real life,

and in real life, we are responsible

for the people we care about.

- Dillan, call - - .
- What? Why?

I love you. Let's not complicate this.

We're trespassing, and everything
in that bag is stolen.

I'm not joking. She's ODing.
She's barely breathing.

We can call from down the block,
but we gotta go.


Hi. I need help. My friend's ODing.

I'm in an abandoned house
on June Street south of th.

- Okay, thank you.

- It's okay.
- All right, you called, right?

Time to go.

- If you stay, you get busted.
- I leave, she dies.


I'm surprised you came.

You're my son.

I thought you didn't have any sons left.


I never should've said that.

I'm sorry.

Mark this date down in history.

Then I got a call that
my son was on a psych hold.

It sunk in that I might lose you, too.

I'm sorry, Dad. I didn't...

I don't want you to apologize.

I want you to get better.

I wish I could go back in time
and save Robert. I can't.

But I can still save you.

But you just have to meet me halfway.

I don't need saving. I just...
need to get back to Angels.



Listen to me.

You're my son.

No matter how much you piss me off

or push me away, I will always love you.

And there's nothing
you can do to change that.

Jeez. The old man's gone soft.



Well, the medicine seems to be working.

Your heart rate's down significantly.


It's okay.

You have a dilated cardiomyopathy.

Your heart is enlarged.

Will this k*ll him?

How long does he have?
What's your treatment plan?

Well, we don't know how long,
but a few years at most.

As for treatment options,
your only real hope is...

I, uh, I need a heart transplant.

But I'm not a candidate. I know.

You know?

Yeah, I was diagnosed a year ago.

You could've told me.

I didn't wanna ruin this.

I mean, it's been like
a dream the last two days.

After years of living a nothing life,

I didn't wanna wake up.

I'm sorry. I just, um,
I just need a minute.



Thanks again for setting this up.

All I did was make a call.
It's you they responded to.

[CHUCKLES] Aw, shucks.

[LAUGHTER] Cheers.

- To a massive career.

And can I just say,

it's good to see you out of those scrubs.


Thanks. [LAUGHS]

What time was she supposed to get here?


The recruiter.

Oh. Of course. She had to reschedule.

Diego did, too.

But I thought you and I
could get to know each other.

Easier for me to sell them
on you that way.

I thought it was me they responded to.


Are you feeling all right?

I'm fine.


Maybe we should do this another time.

we should do this another time.

Would you like to lie down?
I have a suite upstairs.

I should go.



Oh. Oh. [CHUCKLES] You poor thing.

This way. Let me help you.

Too much to drink.
We have it under control.

Noa. Noa!


My husband died three years ago.

Pancreatic cancer.
So I've been down this road.

And I can't do it again.

He crashed into your car

years after you lost one another.

I mean, that is crazy.

So what do you have to fear?

I mean, it is very clear
that the two of you

- were meant to be together.
- Meant to be?

What? By... by Him?

- I'm finished with Him.
- The universe, then.

I'm just a second year resident.

But I'm right about this.

If the universe wanted us together...


...he wouldn't be dying.

Please just... tell him I'm sorry.



- I don't accept your decision.

Choose your next words very carefully.

When I first showed up to your O.R.,
I made a ton of rookie mistakes,

out of, uh, fear, indecision,
lack of confidence,

but I've changed.

You overcorrected.

You enjoy the power

without thinking about
the responsibility.

But you reach a certain point
where you can't go back.

I am a surgeon. I'm not finished up here,

and I don't think
you're finished with me.

Dr. Campbell, I would like to scrub in.

A fall from feet, Mr. Behar,

this should be much worse. You're lucky.

I know my limits. I ignored them today.

I've been places most people
couldn't even understand.

Today, I slip off a -feet face.

Why do you climb?


You know, find out what I'm capable of.

It would be easier if there was
someone there to guide me,

pull me back, sure.

That's not the sport. [SIGHS]


- Ethan, let's go home.

- You can see Rox tomorrow.
- She's been stuck up there.

She doesn't know where I've been.

I should tell her myself.

Think that's gonna set you free?

I'll see you tonight.

- RORISH: What do you got?
- -year-old girl found unresponsive.

- High suspicion for overdose.
- What'd she take?

She huffed gas.

Found her doing compressions on this one.

- Hey.
- "Hey"?


Okay, Daddy, we're taking her
to center stage right away.

- I'll be right in.
- Right away.

- Did you do it, too?
- No. I just drank a little bit.

She stopped breathing, so I did CPR.

Well, I'm just glad you're back.

I'm not back. Joy needed my help,

and you said that Angels was the
best E.R. in the city, so...

Wait. You don't have to go.
You're not in trouble.

Why would I be? You're not the
cops, and you're not my mom.


Ariel, sweetheart, don't say that.

Why don't you get it?

I don't belong here.
This was never going to last.

Are you gonna save my friend or not?

I am.

And you should be there
when she wakes up.

You got her this far. Don't go now.



- What's the status, Mama?
- Amnio's not working.

- milligrams of Narcan.
- Coming up.

- Um, how is she?
- I'm glad you came.

She's not responding.

What did she take? Pills?
Heroin? Talk to me.

All right, nothing I wouldn't
have known of.

Ariel, we need the truth right now.

- What else do I need to know?
- Nothing.

- Okay, push the Narcan.
- Pushing Narcan.

Okay, nothing. Can I get
a central line kit?

We're looking for Ariel Braeden
and Joy Chen?

What is this about, Detective?

A series of home invasion robberies.

Hey, Dr. Willis, where you been?

- Long story.
- I didn't see you scheduled for today.

I'm not. Dr. Willis, I need you

in the ambulance bay.

- I'm not on duty.
- It's Noa.

MAN: Ran into a guard rail
on London Street.

BP's over palp. Hit her head
on the steering wheel.

Noa, it's Mario.
Can you hear me? I'm here.

She was altered when we found her.

Hang on, Dr. Kean, we're gonna
get you to center stage.

RORISH: Mama, she's still not responding.

We found Joy's boyfriend
a block away stealing a car.

He gave both these girls up.

In case you can't tell, Joy
can't talk to you right now.

I'm happy to start with this one.

MARIO: Out of the way! Coming through!

It's Noa! She's bleeding out!

Come on, I need a central line kit.

I need a lot of sponges and gauze.

Hang units and get me
mils of lidocaine.

- What happened?
- It's Noa. A car accident.

- And where did you come from?
- Just passing through.

- Noa. Noa? I'm right here.

Okay? I'm gonna take care of you.

- Okay, no pulses.
- You want an epi?

No, she's flooded with catecholomines.

- Let's go. Come on!
- RORISH: Starting compressions!

If this girl dies, this is a
narcotics-induced homicide.

Hey, hey!

Don't touch her.

Everybody needs to stay calm. Right now!

[JET ENGINE ROARS, expl*si*n]

What was that?


- Out of the way. Move, move.
- We got a gurney coming through!

All right, move. All right. Let's go.

GUTHRIE: Okay, we got falling
debris. Lot more coming in.

- RORISH: What you got?
- Daddy, she's coding.

Let's set up the intubation kit.
Guthrie, what's the word?

Female, . She was outside.

Debris from the crash rained down on her.

- What was she doing outside?
- Tried to get her to stay.

I-I didn't know we were gonna
get hit by a plane.

Yeah, I know. I'm here now.

I'll send Regan up to get eyes
on the damage. Go, go, go.

Call Command as soon as you have intel.

- Come on!
- FAS is negative.


I got it. Bleeding's under control.

Good. That's good. She needs a CT scan.

If radiology is still there.
What floor did the plane hit?

- Eighth floor. No word from OR.
- I sent Angus up there.

- Rox is in PT.
- Physical therapy's on .

- Dr. Avila, you are in.
- Any word from the f*re department?

They're two minutes out.

One more throw and finished. Let's go.

Can you walk on one leg?

Yeah, I scaled Meru
with three broken ribs,

it's like a knife lodged in my chest.

Can't be much worse than that.

Let's go. We gotta move, we gotta move.

- All right, here we go.
- We gotta find Dr. Campbell.

He's fine. Let's go. All right.
Can you feel your leg?

- No, I can't feel anything at all.
- Great. Let's move.

No, it's weird. I don't like it.

It's fine. Let's go. We gotta
get you downstairs. Come on.

Yeah, yeah. We need all
available officers. Now.

JESSE: Need a little help here!

Yeah, I got six other guys
and Regan up on the roof

right now, but we need all
available officers.

- Hey, hey! Get back here!
- I can help.

Well, send me a uni right now.
I'm gonna bring her down.

Here. Hold this closed. Right here.

- I'm not gonna say anything.
- Okay, don't.

What the hell were you thinking running

around with a bunch of kids like that?

Those kids are exactly like me.

Not you, kiddo. No way, no how.

Who's in charge here?

I am. Jesse Sallander, Chief ER Nurse.

- How can I help you?
- You can evacuate this building.

I'm trying. But we got some
critical patients here.

I need a little more time.

My guys are determining
structural damage.

When they're out, you are, too.

Hand to God. Now listen up, people!

If your patient is not critical,
move them out! Let's go!

- That include me?
- I'll walk you out myself.

- Okay.
- Let's go, let's go, let's go.

Ariel? Your friend, Joy...
we almost lost her.

Now she's s*ab for now.

You saved that girl's life, you know.

You said you don't belong here.
You're wrong. You do.

- Is that it?
- Not even close.

But it's not safe to stay here.
You gotta go with the police.

Wait. Wait, wait. Those things
aren't necessary.

- He doesn't need those, does he?
- No.

Okay. Hey, look at me. Ariel, look at me.

I am going to bring you home.
You hear me?

I don't have a home.


This really the only way down?

What, are you gonna take the elevator?

If you can make it over, I got you.

- Come on. You can do it.

- All right.
- You got him?

- Coming?

Not yet. Go, go.



Buddy, why are we here?

I gotta get to Rox.

That's not what I asked.

She's up there, and she needs help.

I'm sure somebody who's getting her down.

That's still not what I asked.

What do you want from me?!

The truth.



Rox, call out if you can hear me!

- Ow!

- Rox, is that you?

Do you know how to get out of here?

Hey, listen. The south
stairway's compromised

from the eighth floor down.

You gotta take the north.

And get as far away

- from the building as you can.
- Okay.

What if she already went down?
This is a goose chase.


- Rox!

You in there?!

Willis! In here!

- Where have you been?
- Are you okay?

Yeah. I can't say the same for Jeannie.

- Let me have a look.
- You must be Willis.

Oh, yeah. It's a gnarly scalp lac.

And an obvious deformity to the humerus.

I wanted to go make her a splint,

but she was too dazed to put
any pressure on the wound.

Can you manage?

She's gonna need stitches
and a splint and...




- You tell me.
- Nothing.

- Just good to see you.
- Same.


She really missed you.


- Wound's closed.

You're still gonna need an x-ray.

All non-critical patients
need to evacuate.

- Besides, she's got karma to spare.
- Where's Phil?

It's chaos, but we will find him.

Okay, we're on the move.


Noa? She's awake.

- Noa?

Noa, it's me. I'm right here.

- Talk to me.

It could be a brain injury, man.
She needs a CT.

- But we don't have one.
- So what do we do?

We, uh, we go old school.

Any hard signs of brain herniation?

- Pupils still slow and sluggish.
- She's moving her extremities.

Noa, I'm right here, okay?
I'm right here. Speak to me.

Okay? Talk to me. Okay? Talk to me.

My... drink.

No... no TBI.


Yeah? Yeah, Diego's here, too.

She means my dad. Is he okay, Noa?

I think he...

- Wh-What?
- He drugged me.

That's how I crashed.

Hey. Hey. It's okay.

We... we're gonna take care of you.

Let's get her out of here.
Come on. Come on.

Come on.



Dr. Campbell?

I thought I told you to get
your patient out of here.

They're safe. I wasn't gonna leave you.


No pulse. How long has she been down?

Seven minutes.



- We gotta move. Now.
- Not yet.

- Not yet!
- k*lling yourself is not

gonna bring her back!

We've gotta go. Now! Now, let's go!


Look, they've blocked off
the emergency exit,

but I think I found a way around it.


- Dr. Campbell!
- Aah!

- Oh!
- Hang on.

Oh! Ahh!

Here, I got you. I got you.

- Hold on, hold on, hold on.


Okay. Easy, easy.

- One, two, three.


- Okay.


Ain't nothing but a sub... sub-Q tear.

Just get me a stapler.

If that bleeding's arterial,
you can go into shock.

- Oh, get out of here. Shock.
- Here. Put some pressure on it.

Oh, really? Is that what
I should do? [LAUGHS]


All right, let me see.
It's just two bleeders, really.

- Uhh!
- It didn't violate the peritoneum.

- seconds each.
- My daughter can do it in .

- Yeah, well, she's not here.
- You came back

after I specifically instructed you

to get your patient to safety.


- Oh, well. It's a team sport.
- Yes, it is.

- Yeah, that's right.

- Dr. Leighton...
- Don't distract me.

You're a good doctor. [GROANS]

You're just saying that 'cause I'm
saving you from bleeding out. Okay.

- But you still have a lot to learn.
- There's the guy I know.

[GROANS] But so do I.


- Okay.
- But that's the beauty of it.


We hone our craft, we learn it

until we can do it in our sleep.

And then, one day,
we wake up and we realize

how much further we have to go.

- Sorry.


I've learned more from you
than you realize.

You have?

Other than my daughter,

you're the most compassionate
person I know.

I'm proud to call you my student...


And my friend.


Let's get the hell outta here.

Okay. Ready?

- Okay. Come on.
- Aah.


Hey, we gonna splint this or what?

I'm moving as fast as I can, Doctor.

All right, honey. Take sharp
breaths through your nose.




Okay, we gotta move. We gotta move now.


[STRAINED VOICE] One, two, three. Go.

- You okay?
- Okay.


We can't go down.
We're gonna have to go up.




All right, ready? Okay.


You okay?

[GRUNTS] Okay.

- Check if it's hot.

- Aah!
- Don't touch it!

- Yeah, it's on f*re.
- We gotta get to the north staircase

- to get up to the roof. Let's go.
- Okay.

Move, move, move, move.

Triage in the parking lot.

But Peterson's got
a radiology team on standby.

All right, Dolores,
we got a change of plans.

We're gonna take you
to an acute care facility.

It's about eight blocks away.

But don't worry. You're gonna be fine.

- Thank you.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.



We have to stop meeting like this.

against your father

And I won't be thr*at

I know I can be a jerk sometimes,

but the thing is,

I care about you, all right? I...

I wanna go to the police

I feel like you'd have

- You.

What do you want me to say?

You're alive. Whatever we share,

whoever we got that from,
you're still here

because you are stronger than me.

You always were.

I should've been there to help you.

You need to take care of yourself.

It's time to stop living like a hero.

So... when you leave for Philly?

Supposed to be next week. But...

Barefoot and young, eyes,
tearing and wide,

words to be sung,

skies clearing inside.

Could you please stop it?


But what?

I don't know if I wanna go anymore.

The recruiter swears
they wanted me for me,

but now the whole thing
just feels... tainted.

Noa... this is an amazing job.

This could change your whole career.
You have to go.


You're trying to sneak off on me?

The Irish goodbye is
a Willis family tradition.

- Where's Jae Eun?
- She's sick. Something going around.

- I'll get her home safe.
- Yeah, you will, Hercules.


- So, uh, I'll check up on you.

I'm heading to Portland

Oh. Well, then, when you're back.

Thank you, Ethan...

Dr. Rorish,

as you know, we only hold
a hearing like this

if the judge in the case disagrees

with the recommendation
of the case worker.

I've read the file, I've heard
the case worker's opinion,

and my mind has not changed.

I'm not sure there's
a worse place for a teenager

to spend her time than a county E.R.

It's no wonder Ariel continued
her pattern of running away.

I fear if the court does not
intervene right now,

- it will be too late for her.
- Okay. No, wait. It's...

Dr. Rorish, you failed to provide for her

a safe and s*ab environment.

What business are you in?

Excuse me?

What business are you in?

I'm in the business of saving lives,

and shouldn't that be the
business that you're in, too?

Shouldn't that be the business
that we're all in?

We work in a hospital.

Yes, we work in an emergency room.

You think it's a terrible place
to bring Ariel.

It is a wonderful place.
It is a sacred place.

And this man right there,
he calls it a civil cathedral,

and that's exactly what it is.
It's a cathedral.

People come to us broken...
broken in so many ways,

and those people right there...

they summon powers
beyond your imagination.

They alter space and time
to make sure they survive.

But I've learned something
that might shock you.

I've learned that survival
isn't the most important thing.

The most important thing is
having something to survive for.

And isn't that what family is?

That beautiful young woman
right there is my family,

and I am hers.

And I would do anything
on this earth to protect her.

Your Honor,

I'm in the business of saving lives.

So is she.


Young lady, you get a lot
of things when you turn ,

and one of them is a voice in my court.

So I'd like to ask what you want.

I wanna be with my mom.
