Episode Summary

EDIT
Weaver confronts a dilemma when influential alderman John Bright, seeking treatment after a fall, tests positive for syphilis—potentially damaging information that could become public. Meanwhile, Carter is impressed by irascible old Doctor McNulty, who oversees an inner-city medical clinic. A sympathetic Kovac defies conventional ethics when he tricks a seriously injured patient who refuses to leave his dying wife's side into believing that she has already expired. Pratt unilaterally allows a drug-addled man to be with his terminal mother. Pratt also keeps a wary eye on his mentally challenged brother Leon as he starts a new job. And Weaver and Kovac differ on what to do with a young boy whose medical history suggests repeated child abuse.moreless

  • Average ER episode?!

    7.1
    I do not know, even thought with all the motion and movement and excitement, that defenetly was on this episode, it somehow left me cold and did not brought much emotions.



    Weaver and Romano and trying to do everything to please that VIP man they had - it was quite interesting to see and it showed new aspect of Weaver, I think. I never thought she would that.



    Maybe I did not liked it so much as mainly it was Pratt episode - his brother and the case with that older brother who should take care of his younger sister-brother but tried to run away from it.



    Quite nothing happened episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: Carter refers to "...a pile-up on I-40." Interstate 40 is a major east-west freeway that passes through eight states, none of which is Illinois; it runs through the southern part of the country from the Mojave Desert at Barstow, California to the coastal city of Wilmington, Delaware.

    • Goof: David, the young boy who was thought to be abused, tells Weaver that he and his dad would watch Starsky & Hutch on Nick at Nite, when in actuality that particular show has never aired on Nick at Nite.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Romano: Okay, cowboy, I've got a vascular surgeon, an anesthesiologist and three surgical residents waiting upstairs in a OR suite that rents for five grand an hour.
      Luka: He wants to stay with his wife.
      Romano: Well, isn't that touching.
      Luka: She's dying.
      Romano: Yeah, well, if she doesn't die faster, he's going to be dying with her.
      Luka: I've explained all that.
      Romano: I'm going upstairs. If he's not up there in five minutes, I'm going to take out your spleen!

    • (discussing a fundraiser)
      Carter: You sure you want to go?
      Abby: Definitely. Free canapes. What is a canape anyway? Don't worry. I'll use the right fork.
      Carter: Next time we'll do something fun. Next time we'll do something that you want to do.
      Abby: Oh, you mean like miniature golf or bowling? Things my people enjoy doing?

    • Susan: Call psych. The sun goes down and the nuts come out.

    • Kerry: Luka, why is Jessie Callahan still in trauma 1? I'm curious because you pronounced her dead an hour ago.
      Luka: Her husband would'nt go up to the or unless she passed so I unhooked her leads and pronounced her. Why?
      Kerry: Good God! What happens when he comes back down from surgery and finds out his wife is still alive?
      Luka: I'll tell him it was a miracle!

    • Lewis: I just want to go home and get into bed. What do you think the odds are that Antonio Banderas will be there waiting for me?

    • Abby: (to Carter) You just signed a check for ten-million dollars. I write a check for over $100 and I get a stomachache.

    • Romano: Come on upstairs sir, where the good drugs are.

    • Reporter: Have you ever heard of the First Ammendment?
      Weaver: Have you ever heard of an awake colonoscopy?

    • Alderman Bright: (about Romano) I was on the committee that hired that man.
      Weaver: He's an excellent surgeon.
      Alderman Bright: Tragic about his arm. A lot of people downtown wish it had been his head.
