  • Cynthia is making many mistakes and they lead into promising moments. Plus things are going up...

    9.4
    Really good and promising episode. First the Cynthia's mistakes really made me laugh - all those little things she took wrong.. that note she read.. I was really thinking - poor Mark. He has so much to explain later and I am sad Carol did not get that note.



    I also adored the case with little boy - really moving. All those doctors so excited and planning to write articles and publish.. noone thought about that little boy. What he was going trough and later - about father's feeling. People with ambitions and who are up for their own good - they just did not see what Benton did.



    Beautiful episode.moreless

    • Anna: Have you considered medical management? Treat the abscess with a course of Flagyl and Cipro before jumping into surgery?
      Carter: I'm willing to give a shot.
      Anna: No, no, no, wait. Are you just agreeing with me because you think that's what I want to hear or do you really believe that?
      Carter: What?
      Anna: I just don't want you agreeing with me just to please me.
      Carter: Believe me, I'm not. I've already considered several alternatives to surgery.
      Henry: You have?
      Carter: Shut up, Henry!

    • Carol: Man, look at you! I hardly sleep a wink on the red eye and you're jogging and smiling.
      Mark: There's nothing like a visit with the folks to make you appreciate home sweet home.
      Carol: The staff will be thrilled. You know, you haven't been too high on the popularity list lately.
      Mark: Yeah, I've been kind of a jerk.
      Carol: Worse.
      Mark: Pain in the ass?
      Carol: Keep going.
      Mark: Total schmuck.
      Carol: Bingo.

    • Benton: What about you? You got any kids?
      Romano: Ha! None they've been able to pin on me.

    • (operating on a patient whose organs are reversed)
      Benton: This would be easier with a mirror in the ceiling.
      Romano: We could operate in my bedroom.
