  • Some char development, some cases but nothing too appealing.

    Somehow the higher level achieved in last episode is lost again - they are back in nothing-special-happens again. Ok, some things did happened - Greene is still having bad mood, acting disturbingly and I am tired of it. The lawsuit with the patience's family who died (in Tribes), just does not work out even if I am sure they tried their best to make that storyline great. I, on the other hand, like Carter part and Carol's wish to open free clinic. We get more and more hints about Carter's family. This really looks promising.



    Cordey is great and Romano looks promising - more people for OR. Benton's troubles make me tired.. really.. what has happened? Nothing catching? Nothing..moreless

    • Benton: Carter, you're twice the surgeon Dale will ever be.
      Carter: Thanks.

    • (Doug just set up a video camera in the bedroom)
      Doug: You talked about this fantasy years ago.
      Carol: I did not! Did I?
      Doug: Actually, I think you accused me of taping myself with various 20-year-olds.
      Carol: That was harsh.
      Doug: Yeah.
      Carol: Was I right?
      Doug: No. You see all this stuff? I did it because I want to make you happy.
      Carol: Really? You did all this for me?
      Doug: I'd do anything for you.

    • Cynthia: (to Mark) Who peed in your cornflakes?

    • Corday: Peter Benton, Rocket Romano.
      Romano: Dr. Benton. Hey, Lizzie's talked about you. Tell me something. Do you think Chris Rock is funny?
      Benton: Excuse me?
      Romano: The comedian, Chris Rock. He did that HBO special. Must have used the N-word 50 times; N-word this, N-word that. They're calling him a genius. If I went around saying the N-word, you'd probably want to smack the hell out of me. Am I right?
      Benton: (long pause) I think Chris Rock is hilarious. (walks away)
      Romano: (calling after him) Good to meet you!
      Corday: Have a good night!
      Romano: (to Corday) You're right. I like him.

    • Carter: For the average male penis you'll use a 16 french Foley catheter.
      Ivan: Those French, they think of everything.
      Carter: It refers to the circumference. One french is a third of a millimeter diameter.
      Ivan: Oh.
      Carter: You want to check the Foley balloon for leaks by injecting some saline. You lube up the tip with Lidocaine. Now you are ready to insert, applying gentle, constant pressure.
      Ivan: Isn't this a nurse's job?
      Carter: You need to know how, Ivan. So grab that penis and show it who's boss.
