Previously, on "New Amsterdam"...

You have cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma.

I want to try precision targeted therapy.

Chemo's gonna take the life
out of me and I... I want

- to keep running this hospital.
- It's too big a risk.

Doctor Bloom asked me to consult

on the hematology patient.

Her file says that she received her heart

from a Luna Goodwin.

Your sister... she gave me
a beautiful life.

She had me arrange this.



Max?

[SHAKY BREATHING] Baby!

Oh, my... help!

We've got Marina Latimer, mid 60s.

Been down for three minutes.

It's her third time here this week.

She went back into V-fib

Okay, I've got a pulse.

Her heart's a ticking time bomb.

He needs to put in an ICD, today.

Yo, Dora. Where's Max?

Out of pocket for a few hours.

Oh, okay. Well, I have a patient

who needs an ICD surgery.

Her insurance won't cover it
so I'm just gonna charge it

to the Community Care Fund.

Max is the only one
who can approve surgeries

from the Community Care Fund.

He's out of pocket for a few hours.

Can this wait until
it doesn't get me fired?

Um, look, whenever there's
a surgery that needs to be done

I just give Max a heads-up
and I do it, all right?

He dots the "I's"
and crosses the "T's" later.

We... we got a whole system.

He's been here for like three weeks.

Yeah, that's how efficient we are.

[MISCHIEVOUS MUSIC]

Dora, hi.

Just on my way to Max's office right now.

Yeah, he was out of pocket
for a few hours.

He's what? Oh, shoot.

No, really?

Uh, as the nurses' union liaison,

I need to tell him that
the hospital-wide walkout

was authorized just now for today.

"Walkout"?

No, no, no.
It's a good... it's a good thing.

Max gave them the idea. [CHUCKLES]

- Of course he did.
- Yeah, I probably should have

led with that.

Did you know that insurance
has covered over-the-counter

emergency contraception since 1996,

and now all of a sudden,
out of the blue, they're like,

"No, uh-uh. Not without a prescription"?

That's not fair, right?

There's... there's no way
we're gonna let that slide.

And yes, for the record, "Norma Rae"

is my favorite movie. [CLICKS TONGUE]

Go, girl.

Dora, uh, I've been texting Max,

but he's not responding.

He's out of pocket for a few hours.

But I need to talk to him.

[LAUGHS] I've basically authorized

a surgery that's not covered
by insurance, and I'm about

to endure a walkout from the nurses,

so whatever you need right now,
I'm sure I can handle.

- It's private.
- Dora.

Dora, I've been looking for Max.

Okay, I'm only gonna say this once more:

Max is out of pocket for a few hours.

Please, save your news, questions,

mysterious personal requests,
or whatever it is

that you need, for his return.

Thank you.

[RADIO CHATTER]

Dr. Panthaki. Thank you

for picking up Max's samples in person.

But to be clear, this cooler
is full of Miller Lites, right?

Yes.

Yes, because I'm the type
who drinks domestic.

So tell me, will this be your first time

seeing Lauryn Hill in concert?

Actually, no.
I've seen her several times.

But never on a date.

So in your head, this is a date, huh?

That's interesting.

Just... just give me my ticket.

Actually, let's do this properly.

Get dressed up.

Okay.

Great.

Well, I... I should go now.

He's not moving.

- Does he have a pulse?
- Okay.

- Yes.
- Did you call 911?

They're coming but, um, the call dropped

and I just didn't know what to do.

How is he?

Might be hypoxia.

Doctor Sharpe told me

about Max's condition,

I was a bit shocked,

or angry, or upset.

We all have a hospital to run,

we need a leader out here,

I need surgery schedules, staff rotation.

I need the minutes from the last

department chair meeting.

That... that's gonna take a little while

with what Max was overseeing today.

- His hot list.
- Yeah.

- What's the hot list?
- It's his to-do list,

but with a cooler name.

Ah.

- I'll call it something else.
- Thank you.

Don't worry, I'm only temporary.

I have several calls out for
more permanent replacements.

Dean Fulton, all this
is incredibly premature.

- When Max wakes up...
- If Max wakes up,

he will still have cancer.

He certainly didn't expect
to continue this job

while undergoing chemo.

Ah-hah.

Of course he did.

So all you care about is business.

Let me tell you something...

every single day, 10,000 patients walk

into this hospital and its clinics.

Our annual budget is $1.5 billion,

and the governor is demanding
that we cut it by 10%,

which is really tough,
because our expenses come in

well over $1.8 billion.

Our infrastructure report
after Hurricane Sandy

told us that we were sinking
into the East River,

and will need $100 million

infused within the next
two years so we don't end up

like Bangladesh after a monsoon!

And the one guy who's in charge
of this whole show

is lying in Trauma One
with a tube down his throat.

And what about a succession plan?

He knew he was sick.

You knew he was sick.

Someone should have had a plan in place.

No.

I think you might have

It's called a paraneoplastic syndrome.

The way his skin got red and swollen

where you kissed him?

That's happening everywhere in his body.

Everything's becoming red and swollen,

and shutting down.

From the cancer?

Yes.

But now that we know
what it is, we can treat it.

And he'll be okay, right?

It is.

So you're willing to risk your job

Now, the ICD is implanted, and I'm using

Then I am sending her home

If the hospital won't pay,

bill me.
