JacobEpisode 5x16, The Incident
Jack is in surgery working on a patient. He starts breathing heavily and the anesthesiologist says, "Dr. Shephard, you alright?"
"The dural sac," Jack says, "I cut it. I need some suction."
Christian is leaning up against the wall and says, "Calm down, it's alright."
"Give me some suction," Jack says.
Christian steps forward. "Jack, look at me. Count to five."
"What are you talking about?"
"I'm talking about stitching up the sac so this girl isn't paralyzed for the rest of her life. And the only way you're going to do that is not to be afraid. So close your eyes, count to five and then fix her, Jack. Or I'll have to fix her for you."
Jack closes his eyes and then counts to five. He takes control of the situation. After the surgery he goes to a vending machine and buys an Apollo Bar. The machine doesn't release it and Jack hits the machine. He goes down the hall and Christian is coming the other direction and says, "Hey, kiddo. The girl's in recovery. She's responsive to stimulus below the waist, so no paralysis."
"Good," Jack says.
"Something wrong, Jack?"
"You embarrassed me."
"You know, it's bad enough that everybody in this hospital thinks that the only reason I got this residency is because you're my father. But then you, you put me in a time out during my first major procedure in front of my entire team. Dad, I know you don't believe in me, but I need them to."
"Are you sure I'm the one who doesn't believe in you, Jack?" Christian walks away.
"One of these yours?" Jacob says as he holds up two candy bars.
"The machine got stuck," Jack says.
"I guess it just needed a little push," Jacob says as he hands Jack the candy bar.
Dance at her WeddingEpisode 2x1, Man of Science, Man of Faith - Flashback 1
A woman is wheeled into the ER with something metal sticking out of her stomach. The EMT says, "Female, late 20s, no ID. She coded twice on the way over here."
A nurse asks about the other one and the EMT says, "Right behind us. Fire Department had to use the jaws."
Jack comes in and takes charge. He asks the nurse to page his father. The EMT says the patient's tire blew and the car jumped the divider and went head-on with an SUV.
"Pericardial's pierced," Jack says.
Another EMT wheels in a second patient. "Adam Rutherford, 57, chest trauma, no breath sounds."
Jack tells an intern to tube Mr. Rutherford, but the intern says he can't. Jack has to decide which patient to work on, and sticks with the woman. Jack works on her as Mr. Rutherford flat lines.
The woman says something that the nurse can't hear and Jack says, "She said she has to dance at her wedding."
HopeEpisode 2x1, Man of Science, Man of Faith - Flashback 2
Jack is looking at her chart when his patient, Sarah, comes to. "What happened to him?" she asks. Jack tells her to relax. "The car that I hit. The other driver was older."
"He died in the ER."
A tear rolls down Sarah's cheek. She says she can't feel anything and Jack says he knows. His bedside manner could definitely be improved.
Sarah asks what happened to her and Jack goes into a whole medical description. His father looks through the window. Jack tells Sarah that he's going to perform surgery and repair as much as possible, but the likelihood of retaining any feeling or mobility anywhere below the waist is extremely unlikely.
Jack's father calls him into the hallway and says, "You might want to try handing out some hope every once in awhile. Even if there's a 99% possibility that they're utterly, hopelessly screwed, folks are much more inclined to hear that one percent chance that things are going to be okay."
"That's false hope, Dad."
"Maybe, but it's still hope."
Fixing SarahEpisode 2x1, Man of Science, Man of Faith - Flashback 3
Jack speaks with Sarah's fiance, Kevin. "Your fiance was seriously injured." He says he will open her up, and depending on the damage, it could take as long as 10 or 12 hours.
Kevin says that she was going for a dress fitting and to look at tablecloths. Jack asks when the wedding is and Kevin says eight months. Jack is sure that Sarah will recover by then and Kevin asks what that means.
Jack says, "There will be ongoing physical therapy, but if she works really hard-"
"Well, will we be able to, you know, make love?" Kevin asks.
Jack just stares at him a moment, then says, "You need to know that there's a chance Sarah may very well need professional care for the rest of her life."
"Like she won't be able to go to the bathroom by herself?"
Jack just stares again, then we see him in the OR. Sarah is on her stomach, ready for the surgery. She asks Jack to come closer and he leans down to hear her say, "I know I'm not going to be dancing anymore. I can still roll around at my wedding. You're invited, okay?"
Jack gets an intense look on his face and says, "I'm going to fix you."
