ED Resident 1: The only resident listed on hand call is Lindsay Allred. I'd rather just replant the hand myself then call her...
ED Resident 2: Dude, I heard she was diagnosed with Residency-Induced Tourette (RIT) syndrome.
ED Resident 1: It all makes sense! Well if the replant doesn't work, I'll still have the same success rate as Ryan Rebowe.

Critical lab value page: Patient calcium 8.4 mg/dL
Lindsay: *RIT EXPLOSION* $@%*! #$%!@+
