Technicians are sent to pump Mildred's stomach when Montag calls the paramedics. They call themselves "handymen".

"Neither of you is an M.D. Why didn't they send an M.D. from Emergency?" "Hell! " the operator's cigarette moved on his lips. "We get these cases nine or ten a night. Got so many, starting a few years ago, we had the special machines built. With the optical lens, of course, that was new; the rest is ancient. You don't need an M.D., case like this; all you need is two handymen, clean up the problem in half an hour.
