  • Great dialogue and interesting ethical issues.

    This episode begins with a scene in the operating room where Casey becomes upset with other staff questioning why this patient is worth the effort. Casey doesn't know or likely care who or what the patient is or has done. He snarls at an intern that maybe he should find an outlet for his social commentary. When he learns that the man is a gangster likely to be executed for a murder he persuades him to donate his eyes to a child. The man agrees but then his lawyer sees an appeal possibility and the gangster wants to live. Interesting ethical issues.moreless
