So we left Amanda and Lee waiting for an ambulance..
Next thing we’re at Parker General Hospital.
Doesn’t look like a hospital entrance..
Scene cuts to a Doctor dressed in green scrubs putting on his white coat. Another doctor approaches him.
Doctor 1: We have a federal agent coming in, Dr Goldberg
Dr Goldberg: Okay, are we ready for them?
Doctor 1: This is the profile. We’re sealing the ER. N.E.S.T. has been alerted and the helipad is lit….
Lee’s head seems to be bandaged and he’s hooked up to an IV.
Awhhh Amanda is holding on to Lee’s hand. Since reaching for it in The Triumvirate I think she never wants to let go
Dr Goldberg is checking his eyes with a small torch.
Doctor 1: Ma’am, you’ve got to let go. [No!!]
Dr Goldberg: Put the O.R on standby and get me a stereo Water’s view of this eye from x-ray. Where’s N.E.S.T.? Doctor 1: They’re coming in now.
Outside we see a woman get out of a car.. a nurse rushes over to her.
Nurse: Doctor, here are the charts and tests you wanted. Patient’s being prepped right now.
Why did we need to see the doctor arriving? I cannot remember exactly what’s going on here.. soooo forgive me if I sound a bit confused!
Back to Lee on his gurney and Amanda is still holding Lee’s hand.
Doctor 1: We’ll take care of him. I promise.
(Dr Goldberg lifts Lee’s head as he continues to check the pupils.)
Lee seems semi-conscious would you say?
The music is quite ominous here as the doc again looks at Lee’s eyes as he then pushes the gurney through the doors and forces Lee and Amanda apart.
It looks like Lee and Amanda hold hands till they can no longer – judging by the way Lee’ s hand is raised as he moves away from Amanda off screen..
and then lets go.. drat.. naughty director. we should have seen those hands part! but.. then.. I guess the imagination can fill in the blanks Awh!!
Amanda is left alone, looking after Lee and the doors close between them.
Right from the start I’m worried one of these doctors or nurses is a baddie – it’s only a matter of time before they find the contact lenses.. I can’t for the life of me remember what happens! which.. I like!
Next thing we see a helicopter arrive. It’s Billy and Francine.
Guess this is the new agency helicopter after Lee crashed the old one in Reach for the Sky?
They turn a corner looking worried..
and find Amanda right where we left her – standing in front of those emergency doors where she lost sight of Lee. Very touching!
Billy: Amanda, are you alright?
Amanda: Yes, sir.
Francine: N.E.S.T. is the national emergency surgical team. [Glad to have this one explained I had no idea!]
…They know what to do in this kind of situation better than anyone in the country.
[My goodness.. I do believe Francine is trying to be reassuring and not in her usual obtuse way either lol– she is actually quite calm and coming across as caring for Amanda – this shows progress no?! LOL I guess after taking a bullet for her, it’s best Francine grow to like her haaaa.. ]
Amanda seems a bit traumatised at the moment.. in a daze.. she stumbles..
Francine: All right, let’s go sit down.
[Billy and Francine are gentle with Amanda. This is lovely to see! ]
Billy, Amanda and Francine turn from doors and walk away.
Back to Lee..
His oxygen mask gets removed and the camera pans over to the ER doctor handing over or consulting with the NEST doctor (Dr. Scardelli- thanks Bitsy Beans for these names!)
Dr Goldberg: His BP was 94 over 60 when they brought him in…
[so.. ahem.. this is an x-ray of Lee’s skull?! 😉 ]
…We started him out on Lactated Ringer’s and continued him on O2 at four litres….
[Phew kudos Bitsy Beans for transcribing all this medical jargon!]
…His profile says he’s 36 years old, [note taken!] good physical condition [of course! I’ll vouch for that!],…
…has an anaphylactic reaction to penicillin… [Oh crumbs.. this is not a good thing to have as a top spy!!] , blood type O positive, and we’ve got 12 pints if you need them.
Dr Scardelli: You run a tight ship, doctor. N.E.S.T. could use a good trauma man.
Dr Goldberg: Oh I’m happy where I am.
[So.. is one of these doctors a baddie?! gah!!! I cannot remember!!! don’t tell!!!]
Just then, a third doctor walks in.. Uh oh.. another doctor? too many doctors who could be baddies around here.. it’s making me nervous!
Another member of N.E.S.T. enters the room. It’s Dr Kessler.
Dr Kessler: Excuse me, doctor.
Dr Kessler proceeds to examine Lee’s eyes with a light.
Dr Kessler: What have we got, Barbara?
Dr Scardelli: Head injury and knife laceration.
Dr Kessler: CAT scanner warmed up?
Dr Goldberg: I’ll alert them.
Goldberg leaves and Kessler takes another look at Lee’s eyes.. soooo has Goldberg already removed the contact lenses? or.. did he not see them and Kessler will find them? someone here is a baddie, or a bad doctor!
Elsewhere in the hospital, Billy and Francine question Amanda..
Billy: Amanda this is important. Did Lee say anything to you, anything at all?
Amanda: No sir. Well he just said “contact Billy”.
Francine: Amanda think. Maybe he said something, anything off the cuff; it might have been code.
Amanda: Francine, really. All he said was “contact Billy”. He didn’t say anything else.
Billy: Amanda you did everything correctly. You executed emergency procedure perfectly.
Amanda quietly: thank you sir.
[Sweet of Billy to say.. but Amanda takes no joy in hearing this at the moment.. ]
At this moment, Dr Goldberg walks by.. Amanda calls out to him..
Amanda: Dr Goldberg?
Dr Goldberg: Yes.
Billy: What’s going on with our man? [Billy shows his ID]
Dr Goldberg: The N.E.S.T. team are still going over him. When I left him, he was still unconscious.
Francine: How serious is it?
Dr Goldberg: He has a very serious head injury. We won’t know anything until after a CAT scan. So, uh, excuse me. Amanda: Thank you.
Billy: Of course.
Billy: Amanda, why don’t you go home? We can’t do anything here.
Amanda: No, sir, I think I’ll wait.
Francine: Amanda, it will be hours before anyone has any information.
Amanda: Oh I know, Francine, but I’ll just, you know, I’ll wait for the CAT scan.
Billy: Alright. We’ll contact your family and tell them where you are.
Amanda: Thank you, sir.
Billy: With a friend who’s in trouble.
Amanda: That’s the truth. [Awh!!]
Amanda: See you later.
Francine in particular seems to consider Amanda here.. I think she’s taking note of the depth of feeling here.. filing it away.. Not that she’d know what to really do with it.. but.. it would be all highly curious – Especially after what she walked into in the Triumvirate!
Billy and Francine leave.
Amanda sighs heavily and looks down, determined to stay and be there for Lee if he needs her I’m thinking.. and wanting news asap too I guess..
It’s all quite sombre in mood isn’t it?
I didn’t want to break it by pointing out Francine’s brooch..
It’s two crowns joined by gold chains! lol.. she does love Royalty doesn’t she!
I’m worried this Goldberg is bad.. and someone is not only going to find contact lenses but hurt Lee. After what happened to Lee in If Thoughts Could Kill I’m surprised they don’t have someone watching those doctors with an Eagle eye!!
Oh and take a bow BitsyBeans! Outstanding transcribing- phew!!!
Can’t wait to hear from ya!!
