Logan (new intern): Dr. Smith sits next to a stack of paperwork when he is disturbed by a very new intern, Logan, who's looking around frantically and talking to no one in particular.

The patient then looks like he's not breathing, and Dr. Smith diagnoses the patient wih tension pneumothorax and tells Logan to get the biggest needle he can find.
