Lucy's injuries appear serious when her chest needs to be cracked open.

    • Carter: Lucy's dead, isn't she?

    • Chen: No, not that Vanessa! Haleh: The one and only. You know her? Chen: Oh, I saw her when I was in medical school. Haleh: She comes in with abdominal pain, Carter orders a pelvic. Tells Lucy the patient would feel more comfortable with a woman. Chen: Oh man! Malucci: Whoa, Whoa, who's Vanessa? Haleh: Lucy is all official. She's polite, she gets her tray all in order, puts on her gloves, pulls back the curtain… Lydia: Meanwhile, Carter's outside waiting. Luka: Uh, waiting for what? Chen: The scream. Malucci: I don't get it. Chen: Carter sent her in to do a pelvic on a drag queen! Malucci: He did not!? Chen: Oh, you've got to hand it to Vanessa. He's got a better figure than I do.

    • Luka: Pretty scary, huh? Malucci: Yeah, pretty scary. Abby: I was complaining about my day.

    • Kerry: Are you blaming Carter, Mark? Mark: No! I'm not blaming anyone, are you?

    • Malik: Dr. Weaver, we've got a problem with the Medivac chopper, industrial trauma from Wyden. Kerry: Try to divert. Malik: I did, but Lakepoint's closed. Kerry: Whatever.

    Notes (6)

    • Along with the Season 6 episodes "Abby Road" and "Be Still My Heart," this episode has the most credited main cast series regulars (13).

    • Though spelled correctly when he is listed as the series creator in the opening credits, Michael Crichton's last name is incorrectly spelled "Chrichton" when he is listed with the other executive producers in the end credits of this episode. This mistake was repeated in most of the Season 4 episodes and in all of the Season 6 episodes.

    • The closing credits are traditionally shown over a freeze frame from the episode, but in this case the freeze frame is from a previous episode; Lucy and Kovac are shown in conversation in a scene from "The Domino Heart." This would be the only time in ER's history that the closing freeze frame was not from the episode that had just aired.

    • This episode marks Kellie Martin's final appearance as a series regular.

    • Music: "More Today Than Yesterday," Spiral Staircase; "Tell Me Something Good," Rufus & Chaka Khan; "A Whiter Shade of Pale," Procol Harum; "Piano Man," Billy Joel (sung by Mark and Elizabeth); "Samba Pa Ti," Santana (also used in Lucy's first episode, "Day for Knight")

    • Goof: When Weaver goes to talk with Cupid, the camera and operator are reflected in the window.
