Dr. Peter Benton: Carol!
[drops chart on desk]
Nurse Carol Hathaway: Careful!
Dr. Peter Benton: I'm having problems with Haleh.
Nurse Carol Hathaway: So I heard.
Dr. Peter Benton: I'd like you to reschedule her, so we don't have to work together anymore.
Nurse Carol Hathaway: From what I hear, you're the one that needs to be rescheduled.
Dr. Peter Benton: So, what does that mean? You won't do it?
Nurse Carol Hathaway: No, I won't. The nursing schedule is my prerogative.
Dr. Peter Benton: Even if that situation is endangering patient care?
Nurse Carol Hathaway: You work every day and every third night. Haleh's got four kids to support. When is she supposed to work?
Dr. Peter Benton: The woman refuses to follow my instructions!
Nurse Carol Hathaway: Why should she? You're still in training, remember? She already graduated.
Dr. Peter Benton: Oh, come on, Carol, don't give me that! I mean, we are NOT equals!
Nurse Carol Hathaway: Look, she may not know how to cross-clamp an aorta, but Haleh has been working in emergency medicine for twenty years, and if you would ever hop off that pedestal you've put yourself on you might see that the nurses make this place work, not you.
