Elizabeth: We need to get you to the hospital right now!

Sidney: I took a tumble, that’s all. It’s nothing – just a little pain in my elbow and leg.

Elizabeth: Your arm is twisted in an odd angle and you’re limping. You could have broken bones.

Sidney: In the past, I’ve had a compound fracture in my ankle and a stress fracture in my wrist, and they both hurt a lot more than this. I’m sure it’s nothing serious.

Elizabeth: Look how your arm is swelling up. It almost looks deformed. And you still can’t put weight on your leg.

Sidney: The last thing I need right now is to get a splint or a cast. I have to get to work.

Elizabeth: You can’t work in the shape you’re in. Why don’t you let me take you to the emergency room to get treated?

Sidney: I’ll just take a couple of painkillers and walk it off.
