When Dr. Eric Lake, easily the equal of DeBakey, undertakes coronary surgery at City General on a very rich man who's overindulged in rich foods for years along with other immoderate activities, the OR is taken over by two terrorists, with others backstopping them, who want a ten-million-dollar ransom to feed the poor. Lake never takes his eyes off his patient's veins, large as a fire hose, and proceeds unflappably with the revascularization while another man is killed, the money's brought in, and he's taken hostage for a short period.
