  • Abby really does well is psych rotation

    8.8
    Again, very emotional storyline and Abby - oh, she really made this work. The way she has ability to see trough people and understand if there is a change to help them and she has the passion - it was beautiful.



    But it was not only Abby. Neela is doing also very well and she likes working in science and saves a life of his fellow scientists. And somehow, it looks, she is still good ER doctor and she could be very valuable help for them.



    So, in overall, concentrating on Abby and Neela and showing how those two are doing.. and Abby in the end, taking a boards again.. Hope she will pass them this time.moreless

    I don\'t know if i like the episode or not. Well i\'m kinda anoy that this episode is again base only on Abby and Neela and the other characters are only \"secondary\".



    The parts i like is how Abby could make the woman talk about her baby Charlie, how she was trying to save him form his stipid father and how in the ned she kill him, it was very sad. Ok, now the social services guy is the japanease guy at lost isn\'t it??



    Like Carter\'s dad i hate Kem, she is annoying and horrible and sucks, and it sucks that there was only 1 samka moment and no alex to be seen.



    Dr. Corday was verys sweet at talkingh to Dr. Weaver at the end of the episoe, she really need someone to help her or only to listen to her.moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Dr. Nelson: The perception of a psychiatrist, bedside manner of an ER doc, and the empathetic eyes of an overworked nurse.
      Abby: Oh yeah, I'm the whole package. All I have to do is actually pass my boards.

    • Yuri: I love you, Neela.
      Neela: Yes, I know.
      Yuri: You rock.
      Neela: Yes, I do.

    • Sam: How you doing?
      Luka: Good. How's Alex?
      Sam: He wants to know if you got that plasma screen yet.
      Luka: No, not yet.
      Sam: Sorry I haven't called, but I've just been, you know, trying to figure stuff out with Steve.
      Luka: Sure.
      Sam: I don't think he's gonna be staying too much longer. We're not together, you know. Me and Steve. He sleeps on the couch.
      Abby: Sam, there's a woman in one admitted for seizing. Could you let me know if her husband is looking for me?
      Sam: (nods) See you later?
      Luka: Yeah.
      Abby: How's it going?
      Luka: Never better! (slams his locker shut)

    • Abby: This is not about me.
      Jordan: You want me to tell you things, to trust you, but you don't have to say anything? Is that fair? Don't you trust me?
      Abby: O.k. I can't follow through.
      Jordan: On what?
      Abby: On anything. Once something gets in my way, it's like a chemical reaction. I just shut down, and I give up. I'm just looking for an excuse to stop, because in the end it's easier to do that than to risk being hurt and disappointed again.
      Jordan: You mean with men?
      Abby: Men, my career, my family... pick your poison.

    • Jack: Milicent dies, you run off half way around the world. Disappears for months. Only to come back like some sort of avenging angel, with a pregnant African girl in tow.
      Carter: Her name is Kem.
      Jack: Are you back using drugs?

    • Kem: Oh my God, John. We're having a boy!
      Carter: Yeah, I think you mentioned that. What is this? What, you're having a little prenatal jitters?
      Kem: You don't think that, maybe we...
      Carter: What?
      Kem: ...rushed into this?
      Carter: 'Course we did. But we did'nt over analyze it, we did'nt reexamine it, we did'nt over think it. We just did it 'cause it felt right.
      Kem: This is a life that we're responsible for. You and me.
      Carter: We're ready. Are you ready? (points at her belly

    • Neela: Dr. Pratt, do you have a minute?
      Pratt: Maybe in a minute I might...

    • Pratt: (to Neela) Hey, are you an ER doc or what?
      Kovac: Last time I checked, but you're not the first one to ask.

    • Title: "Abby Normal"
      The title of this episode refers to a quote from the 1974 film Young Frankenstein, in which Igor misremembers the name on the jar of the brain he had handed to Dr. Frankenstein as "Abby Normal" and not "abnormal."
