  • Episode Description
  • An enormous rainstorm pelts Chicago. Cleo's last day at County is interrupted by the arrival of Benton's DNA results: he's not Reese's biological father. Benton meets with his lawyer regarding the trial; she advises him to let Roger see Reese; he refuses. Money from the nurses' secret stash and Frank's Palm Pilot go missing, only to turn up in Nicole's purse. She later tells Luka that she's pregnant. Susan accuses Mark of being grumpy with his patients; he spends the day treating a kid who fell in the river with his younger brother and whose parents blame him. Weaver travels to an accident site, where Pickman's ambulance was rammed by an SUV. She treats a pregnant stab wound, going as far as to give her a C-section in the broken ambulance, with Gallant's help. Weaver interracts with paramedic Sandy Lopez for the first time at the accident scene. Carter's grandmother comes in after being involved in a hit-and-run and breaking her hip. She becomes delusional in an MRI machine, calling out for her husband.moreless

    • Abby: I distinctly heard him! Greene: Who? Abby: The weatherman this morning. He said "partly cloudy, chance of rain."

    • Susan:Uh, Carter isn't it? John Carter? Carter: And you would be...? Susan: The girl by the pool. Carter: Oh right, yeah. The one without the answering machine. Susan: It broke in the move. I haven't had time to go shopping. Carter: That's convenient. Susan: Hey, I called you. Carter: Did not. Susan: Yeah, I spoke to your man-servant. Harry? Carter: Henry? The night butler? He didn't say anything about it. Susan: Uh-huh. Carter: It is the 21st century, you know. You can get voice mail. Susan: You need to get better help. Carter: You volunteering? Susan: Any benefits? Carter: Well, there's the outfit. Susan: Dream on.

    • Abby: You alright? What is it? Luka: She's pregnant. Abby: Who? Luka: Nicole. Abby: I see. Is that why she was stealing? Luka: No. That's a habit. She does'nt know how to trust people. Abby: Her trusting people is'nt really the problem. Luka: Her father kicked her out when she was 16. She's had to learn to live on her own. Abby: Her father? Luka: She panicked I guess. I don't know. I was just trying to help her. I did'nt think I'd... be with her. It just happened. Abby: You sure it's yours? Or that she's really pregnant? Luka: She's not like that. You don't know her. Abby: Do you?

    • Lewis: Uh, what kind of bedside manner is that? Greene: The idiot just had an MI after stinting, and he stands out in the rain for 8 hours. Lewis: I don't think yelling is going to help. Greene: It might. Lewis: You know, you might want to think about getting out of the ER. Greene: Oh, that advice is only about 9 years too late, but thank you. Lewis: No seriously. You never used to talk to patients like that. Greene: I had an epiphany...

    • Gallant: He [Romano] also told me to stay away from you, if I am going to survive medical school. Weaver: Well, nobody actually listens to Dr. Romano down here. Gallant: Yeah, I kind of figured that.
