    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Goof: Phillip tells Kate that Jack McNeil now has her old office. That isn't true. McNeil has the office directly next door from Aaron Shutt's. When McNeil arrives at the hospital, he throws a baseball against the common office wall which startles Shutt. He investigates because the office had been "vacant for quite awhile". That's because the previous occupant was Jeffery Geiger, who left Chicago Hope. Kate came on staff prior to Geiger leaving and had a different office.

      • A doctor who has performed a surgery is in charge of the patient's post operative care. Dr. Schapira would not have been brought in if Austin operated. Even if the parents requested him, it would be professional courtesy to have declined.

      • It was never explained why Barney was in the hospital in the first place when he fell and broke his hip. No other doctor consulted on his case, so he wasn't being treated by anyone else; and there was no reference to anyone else he might have been visiting. Certainly, no one else in the hospital visited him, as you'd might expect if he was there to see someone.

      • In a previous episode, when Kate is running for chief of surgery, Dr. Schapira (her competition) is described as a urologist with some disdain. Apparently, he also does heart transplants as of this episode.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • Peter Berg (Dr. Billy Kronk), Rocky Carroll (Dr. Keith Wilkes), and Thomas Gibson (Dr. Danny Nyland) do not appear in this episode.

      • Judy Beckman's finished project turns out to be what we know as the famous parody of the opening credits of "ER", another in the continuing series of in-jokes between the producers of both shows.
