We join Lee for surgery! lol..
lol all I can think is Lee looks a bit like a nun.
Dr Kessler: Pulse is down to 45, respiration slow. BP is 100 over 60 and dropping.
Dr Scardelli: Give another 12.5 grans of mannitol, IV bolus.
We see Billy and Amanda watching through glass doors. lol.. umm not a very airtight operating theatre..
Dr Goldberg joins them to watch.
[LOL where did Billy come from all of a sudden? I guess maybe when Lee collapsed he was called in? ]
Dr Goldberg: I came as soon as I heard. How’s he doing?
Billy: Not good.
Amanda: I never should have let him get out of bed. [It’s where he belonged!]
Billy: You can’t blame yourself, Amanda.
Nurse: BP dropping fast. I’m not getting a pulse.
Dr Scardelli: Damn.
Amanda: What’s the matter? What’s wrong?
Dr Goldberg: He’s in ventricular fibrillation. His heart can’t maintain a steady beat.
Nurse: I’m not getting a pulse.
Dr Scardelli: Let’s shock him. Give me 300 joules.
We cut to Amanda.. looking pretty darn upset. Boooo Poor Amanda!!! Will Lee make it? I mean how awful to be standing right there watching all this take place!!! (ahem)
Dr Scardelli: Clear. (they zap Lee)
Dr Kessler: Nothing.
Dr Scardelli: Push it up to 360. Clear.
Dr Kessler: BP nil.
Dr Scardelli: We’re losing him.
Dr Scardelli 5 cc’s of epi stat. [Heck. give me some too!!]
(Dr Scardelli injects Lee in the chest with epinephrine..)
Dr Scardelli: No effect…. An amp of bicarb. And cut that speaker.
[Kudos Bitsy Beans for transcribing all this! Phew!!]
(bicarb is injected into IV. Everyone is silent and waits.. looking for a sign Lee is going to make it..)
Kessler silently shakes his head.
Amanda gasps and looks all round devastated.
Billy looks.. umm.. quietly pensive?
Dr Goldberg looks.. I don’t know what.. calm?! He certainly doesn’t seem to care that Lee is dead and Amanda is suffering. Rot Dr Goldberg! You’ll get yours!
Lee is dead????!!!!!
Okay.. this has gotta be a dream.
Lee is about to wake up back at his apartment with that file sitting on his chest, and Amanda sitting in his lounge room drinking coffee out of his favourite mug.. yes that’s it. I can see it now.
Lee will wake, and realising he is still alive, he’ll seize the moment and take Amanda in his arms umm.. sorry.. where was I?
Lee’s dead. ahem.
I must say, he’s looking quite pink for someone dead. ahem.
Dr Scardelli unhooks the breathing tube fixed to Lee’s mouth and they cover him over.
Amanda watches breathing heavily.
Amanda (quietly): No.
Billy approaches Amanda to comfort her
(Billy and Amanda leave the room)
LOL it occurs to me this is the second time Billy has comforted grieving Amanda at Lee’s ‘death’ ahem..
Dr Evil Murderer Goldberg looks on.
Whooo I detect a little moody evil guyliner there!
He picks up a telephone and dials…
Goldberg: Mr Brody….I have good news for you.
I guess Goldberg is thinking Lee has died from the head injury rather than from his drug he slipped him? or heck.. maybe the drug…whatev – Lee is dead. and for Goldberg it’s party time…
The scene ends there..
Does anyone remember seeing this for the first time and not knowing what would happen? Care to share?
We cut again to an exterior shot of Parker General hospital. Lol this time they’ve reused the very first shot we saw of the hospital.. same nurse in the doorway.. and they’re always leaving around those two wheelchairs! Such waste!
Inside, we find a man reading the paper..
It’s Brody. Oh joy.
LOL that the paper has no front page.
He folds the newspaper and addresses someone approaching him off camera.
Brody: Thank you, doctor. I knew I could count on you.
Okay everyone- ROFL!!! Sooooo who saw people we recognise in the newspaper as he folded it and put it away??!!!! whahahahaa..
Did anything in this newspaper catch your eye?! [yes another eye pun]
– I(eye) spy Bart Stoller and Colleen Donnelly- the Reporters from Flight to Freedom!
We actually see this newspaper here:
Post 4 of Flight to Freedom.. it’s where Bart thinks Colleen is dead.
Haa haaaa this find tickles my funny bone err not that Bart thought Colleen was dead – but because here is Brody, the evil baddie reading the newspaper from months ago haaaa.. and he sells information? whahahahaaa! this amuses me!
Anyway.. sorry I digress! where was I..
Goldberg and Brody move away from the waiting room area to do their devious stuff around the corner. LOL at Brody motioning so casually to the desk there like he owns the place..
no one is looking at him haaaa..
Goldberg: why are we doing this here?
Brody: Quite frankly, a precaution. You’ve been a bit difficult to predict recently and I didn’t think you’d be too bold right here in your own back yard.
Goldberg: You don’t have to worry about me or Stetson. Is that for me? (Goldberg motions to a briefcase Brody is holding)
(The two men swap brief cases.)
… And congratulations. Everything is going according to plan.
Goldberg: Yeah your plan. I wish I would’ve never gotten involved with you. I should have taken my chances with Medical Licensing Board…
[Oh booo hoooo.. yes another baddie full of regrets but doing nothing. wimp]
…Now, you’ve got the other lens. Get out of my life and out of my hospital.
[I love how he says I never should have gotten involved with you – as he hands over the other lense. super wimp
We see Brody react to Goldberg’s disgust. Me thinks he has created this reaction in people many times before ]
And he certainly seems nonplussed!
With the camera still on cool as a cucumber Brody – we hear Lee’s voice:
Lee: I think we can arrange that….
The two baddies look up across the way..
Lee (in plaid?!) was sitting across the other side of the waiting room listening in.
Oh hooray! Lee is not dead? well Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!
Lee is born again- In plaid!
[okay – who really thought he was? come on!! fess up!!!! err yeah.. okay- me neither! ]
Not only is Lee alive: He’s packing heat!
…You boys look like you’ve seen a ghost. I’ll have to compliment the surgical team on their fine acting.
[LOL- Love the pose with the hand in the pocket there Lee!]We see Billy is on the South side of the waiting room.
Amanda is on the north side. rofl! So helpful to orientate us
Brody pulls a gun out of his jacket and aims it at Goldberg.
Brody: You move and I blow him away. [Meh no loss. ahem..] …Then I start firing at random… [Oh purlease Lee would have dropped you before you could shoot anyone else after Goldberg ]
Lee thinks about it. Drop gun? no drop the gun? laaa dee daaa..
Brody calmly: …Drop the gun.
[I think Brody does have a quiet menacing quality which makes for a good baddie.. what do you all think?]
Lee drops his gun to the floor. [lol that’s quite a clunk!]
Brody immediately pushes Goldberg in the direction of Lee and runs off. Lee picks up his gun and chases after Brody leaving Billy to arrest Goldberg.
Oh come on! Amanda could keep him under control – Billy is leaving Lee to deal with Brody alone? even though he is not well?? I mean he does still actually have a head injury doesn’t he?!
Oh well.. Lee must face the baddie alone I guess.
Oh dear.. this post is getting big.. now we know Lee (phew) is not dead, I think we’ll pause here for a moment – I can’t wait to hear what you all think!!!!! Hellooo Hellooo!!
Do jump in and say hi and share your thoughts. And thanks for reading!
