Reid: The cut off is 99.9
Maggie: But Gary has a rare type. No one else in the system is a match.
Reid: Well, hopefully the donor will get better soon.
Maggie: The longer we wait, the more unstable his rhythm gets. It's only half a degree. Can't we just make an exception?
Reid: I'm sorry, but no. We can't.
