Standoff: Life Support

When a girl's health takes a turn for the worse, a young boy takes hostages in a hospital to force a surgeon to operate on his terminally ill sister. But the renowned doctor is on vacation, and the remaining surgeons refuse to perform such a complicated procedure without his help. With lives on the line, Matt and Emily must appeal to the doctor's past and the young boy's future in order to save the hostages and prevent the boy from doing something he will regret.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Wayne: I should've kicked his ass.
Emily: Okay, you could help us by giving us something we can use.

Frank: We can probably end this in minutes.
Cheryl: Emily's getting some more info, sit tight.
Frank: What about the patient on the table, the one with his chest split open... how long can he sit tight?

Frank: I thought you said he was a kid?!
Matt: He is.
Frank: Yeah? Well, he's kickin' our ass!

Frank: (as they discuss using the laundry chute) The laundry? You mean where they throw all the dirty sheets with all that blood?
Duff: And vomit.
Matt: (to Frank) You need to take one for the team.
Frank: You're up, Duff!

Dr. Ephraim Khoury: It's not my problem.
Emily: Why?
Dr. Ephraim Khoury: I don't negotiate with terrorists.

Dr. Ephraim Khoury: The girl has all my sympathy. The terrorist does not.
Emily: You know who has mine? You. Because that bomb that led to the death of your mentor, it also killed the things in you that made you wanna be a doctor in the first place.

Duff: It's gonna take a while.
Frank: (as he struggles to hold onto Duff's line) However long it takes... but seriously, bro? Let's hurry up.
