One night when I was working with Peter, there was a code. Both on-call teams ran to it. Since I was the junior resident my job was to stay out of the way, but look like I was doing something important. Like leaning against a wall to keep it from collapsing.
Peter and Stephanie were at the head of the bed. She was setting up to intubate the patient, and Peter was watching the heart monitor and calling for meds (they were REALLY into this sort of shit. Another resident once told me that codes were probably their idea of foreplay). At one point Peter tore off a rhythm strip, handed it to me, turned back to the bed and yelled, "Sweetie! Can you intubate him now?"
There was a (pardon the phrase) dead silence.
The code stopped for a few seconds and all eyes were on the married couple. Finally, Stephanie said (with icicles on every syllable):
"Don't call me 'Sweetie' during a code."
Then she intubated the guy, and the code continued.
I don't remember if the patient made it, but I know I almost lost it.
