  • Very emotional

    8.6
    This episode was really emotional - first Carter and his downfall as he cannot accept that Kem is gone and their child is dead and the nightmares.. then hard case in Er.. and drinking. Like it will be a solution.



    And ofcourse Abby's case - that young girl, who first seems just like another patient but when story comes out - and it does come, it is very moving and sad, all the things she has gone trough.



    And Abby, who sends her back to her home.. and Neela. She dealing with her parents who do not understand that and then the girl.. but she did very well. She did not left her alone.moreless
  • Carter is distraught whilst Abby treats a "damaged" girl.

    8.5
    So Neela dropped out of Michigan..? I understand her parents confusion, Neela is really talented maybe it's all become too much for her and she's overwhelmed by having more involvment with patients.



    Abby put her foot in it with Haleh and faced the wrath of the Nurses united! Give the girl some slack it was an easy mistake to make it's as if as soon as you become an intern no matter of your past you get on the wrong side of Nurses instantly.She also treated a "Damaged" girl who was confused and frightened after being ilegally imported from Mexico? Glad Abby broke the rules and sent her home , I think Neela got some thinking time by going with her.



    Kerry's comment on Ray's appearance was great; It appears we've hired the love child of Ozzy Osbourne.Classic.moreless
  • Kem is gone and Carter desaperate.

    7.0
    Now that Kem is gone, poor Carter have to deal with this all by himself. And that really sucks because it would be more easy if Kem was there and both can give mutual support and now that they are apart Carter really don't know how Kem is felling and how shes doin and that make it all worst.



    Abby treats this "damage girl" and i really like she wants to help so much that she buys the ticket and sends her back to home, this is one of those episode where i relly things poor mexican that are over there and have to sopport all this just to be on ·the other side" and have some money to send to theire poors familly.



    Hate one of the finall parts when Carter all drunk go to the kid that have let her fiance and tell him to call hher because that what he needs to do, but he don't want.moreless

    This was an interesting episode, it was average, but good. Poor Carter, he isn't taking the fact that Kem is gone too well and he wakes up with a sweat from a bad dream about Kem and his son. He hasn't picked up his feelings and he shows up at the hospital drunk and Luka has to tell him to go home. He tells a patient that was hurt over in Iraq just to call his ex-girlfriend when he knows that is what he himself should be doing, calling Kem.



    Luka and Sam tell eachother that they love each other, makes me sick, they arn't a good match, but I do hope that Sam and Alex move in with Luka, they would be safe from Steve and Steve wouldn't know where Luka lives. It's be good for Alex.



    Neela is still up in the air about what she wants to do with her life, makes me upset, we all know what she needs to do, she just isnt taking the inititive to do it. Her parents come into town and a pretty much pissed that she wants to drop out.



    Poor Abby, the nurses should get credit for everything they do, they are the back bone to the ER, but they shouldn't treat Abby like this. Abby did a great thing for the "damage girl," makes me proud.



    Good times.moreless

    • Abby: Listen, Haleh. I think you might have been off a decimal point on my patient's dopamine.
      Haleh: Excuse me?
      Abby: I just noticed it was running at 3 CCs instead of 30. But I caught it early, but next time maybe you could double check?
      Haleh: You need to double check the concentration before you start messing with the I.V pump. I mixed it 10 to 1.
      Abby: Don't we always mix it 1 to 1?
      Haleh: No. You always mix it 1 to 1. I always mix it 10 to 1.
      Abby: I didn't realize...
      Haleh: If you concentrate the drip, the bag will last longer.
      Abby: Sorry.
      Haleh: I'll go turn down her rate, make sure her BP hasn't hit the roof.
      Penny: Ahm.. you know, nurses really are the backbone of a place like this. It's good to get on their good side.
      Abby: Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

    • Weaver: Head and shoulder in three Harold.
      Abby: Herman.
      Howard: Howard!

    • Kyle: You a Democrat?
      Carter: Yeah, most of the time.
      Kyle: People rag on this war. I say it was a good thing. Gave a lot of people their freedom.
      Carter: It's good that you feel that way.
      Kyle: Where the hell would I be if I didn't?

    • Luka: I wasn't trying to be a hero this morning. I asked you to move in because, I... I love you. I'm in love with you, And I thought, I don't know, maybe you feel the same.
      Sam: Did you just say that?
      Luka: I spend too much time wasting time. So whenever you're ready, just let me know.

    • (A patient is going crazy)
      Carter: Ma'am? You need to settle down. (She hits him in the head with a bedpan) Hard restraints!
      Patient: I am a solution to the problem!!!
      (Carter tackles her to the bed)
      Patient: I am not the problem!!!
      Carter: Actually, right now you are.

    • Neela: Hi Dr. Carter. How's everything?
      Carter: Eh... nice to see you Neela. (Neela leaves) Wait. What's she doing here?
      Jerry: I'm not really sure.

    • Carter: I don't know what happened.
      Luka: You had a rough time. It's not hard to understand.
      Carter: I guess, I just thought it would help somehow.
      Luka: Help what? What else is going on?
      Carter: Nothing, I'm fine.
      Luka: You looked bad all day. I wasn't the only one who noticed.
      Carter: Well, I did get hit in the head by a psycho patient.
      Luka: You can talk to me, John.
      Carter: I've been having trouble sleeping. I keep having these dreams. I miss her! And I miss the baby. And I miss all the stuff I thought we were going to have. And I don't know how to get any of it back.

    • Luka: Nicely done.
      Abby: You left me alone in there.
      Luka: We had two traumas.
      Abby: Yeah. And last week I had to get approval for everything I do, and now all of a sudden I'm supposed to run a code by my self!
      Luka: Welcome to internship.
      Abby: I was tentative, I was unsure, I was asking the nurses for advice!
      Luka: They respect that openness. They respond to being treated like members of the team.
      Abby: No no no.
      Luka: You always did.
      Abby: Luka! The boy's dead. And I don't think he got the best possible care.
      Luka: You're right. We gave the best possible care to the one I thought we could save. And we gave the next best to your guy.
      Abby: What?
      Luka: He had coded when they brought him in, Abby. He barely had any vitals, and he was fixed and dilated. The guy was already gone.
      Abby: So what, I never had a chance?
      Luka: No, he never had a chance. You'll have another sooner than you want. 15 minutes, an hour, tomorrow maybe.

    • Abby: You don't speak Spanish, do you?
      Neela: Punjabi, French, a little bit of Farsi, a smattering of German...
      Abby: Alright, alright, alright...

    • Ray: I wasn't aware that there was a dress code here.
      Weaver: I just don't want you to create any discomfort with the patients.
      Ray: The patients, or the other doctors? It's the jewelry, isn't it.
      Weaver: No.
      Ray: Hmm... Fingernails, tattoo, the hair?
      Weaver: It's the whole package.
      Ray: Okay. Well, I'll talk to my band mates and see if I can't pull it back a little. (he walks off)
      Carter: Band mates?
      Weaver: It appears we've hired the love child of Ozzy Osbourne.
