Pen-Test as a favor

Hey, I'm working as an IT intern in a doctors office and I got permission to do a little pen-testing on their servers on my own time. How necessary would it be to get written permission before I take any action? The Admin/CTO is a pretty good friend and I doubt would even consider taking any legal action if anything happened.

If I do need a contract or something could someone point me in the direction of a template. I have never even seen such a contract/agreement before and I would never be able to write one up on my own properly.
