  • Sadly the last episode of Doctor Dave. At least he gets some revenge on Weaver.

    In Doctor Dave's last episode after bending the rules in the previous episode and accidentally killing a patient things don't bode to well with Doctor Dave in the ER, especially with Weaver really hating him. Well things become worse as Dave goes in an elevator and saves a sick man, and at the same time eyes a pretty EMT. So when Weaver goes to knock on the EMT van well you know the rest, she finds Dave and fires him. At the same time Greene's bratty daughter ends up in Chicago and to Corday's dismay stays with Greene's family. So Doctor Dave's career is in jeopardy being fired and after a brief conversation with Chen outside where he tells her that "Weaver has it in for him, and that he'll continue to be a Doctor." Dave heads back in the ER to see another patient a man who burned off his eyebrows, which is a nice site because well Dave looks like he is having fun as a Doctor. After Weaver catches him she tells him to get out or she'll call security, Malucchi yells at her and then gives her a big insult finally shutting her up, and ending everybody who dislikes Weaver a crushing blow as he throws his badge and exits in true fashion. Overall I liked the episode, and I wish Dave Malucchi stayed longer. He would have made a perfect Cast compliment after Greene and Benton left the show as the sort of "Doug Ross" mold character to Noah Wyle's Carter.
  • i am an addict..thats right i love ER soooo much.....

    all i came online for was to find out what romano said to reese when peter's back was turned, and while watching it i just saw reese give romano the v sign which cracked me up..its subtle but its bloomin hilarious lol.....but also such a touching moment with romano being starngely affectioante, made me weep with emotion....i used to hate romano at first, maybe still do, but he's changed, and perhaps the er has changed him or the people have changed him, i guess you work with ppl and at some stage you start building bonds...i dunno...anyway watch reese tell romano to f**k off....its rather funny...
  • Actually, they did kill the fish...

    It was somehow humorous episode but also tragic. We finally learned some more personal things about Malucci. He has been one funny addition to the show but noone has ever took him seriously or there has not been no big storyline with him, but now we learn that there is a kids in play and he really needs that job and likes it too. Interesting know.

    Rachel is back, with new actress. It is kind a weird first but she get well into that roll. Is it me or.. it was like two year ago, when the episode where Carol had babies and it was said there Rachel is 10. And now she is 14?

    The most interesting this was Carter and Abby - getting into that apartment..
  • Malucci gets the sack...

He says really hars thing to Weaver and some of them are true. A good episode, above the average, and really funny.
  • Ericks good bye

    A very funny episode, everything expet when Malucci con fired that wasn't fun. I start to think that it was better when Weaver dosen't appear only occasionly that make a lot more pleasure to watch her, because now that she is in all the episode is king of frustrating. When Carter and Abby tried to get inside Lukas apartment was very funny and then when the cops arrived hahaha, only because abby felt guilty of the aquarium :D

    Weaver was very hard on Deb and Malucci, ok i know they kill a guy but that wasn't a good reason so she can yell at them they way she do.
