  • Continuing storylines but nothing special

    This episode. It had no sparkle - Corday storyline was most catching as she was in most awful situation and maybe she found the real person to blame.

    Also the new med student, Gallant arrives and he misdiagnose a patient and another second year med student, who is patient, has the right answer. Gallant looks promising and the patient-med student - her story and the way she looked first so harmless and what we learned later - it was well written.

    But all the thing between Susan and Carter - I do not know where it came from. But Carter's grandmom - I think there is coming something promising.moreless

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Grace: Why are you doing this?
      Carter: Because I know what it's like to need help when you least want it.
      Grace: Please. Please just leave me alone.
      Carter: I can't.

    • (Carter tells Susan about his past drug addiction)
      Susan: Fentanyl?
      Carter: Figured if I was going to abuse drugs, I'd abuse a good one.

    • Abby: Every now and then, some freak tries to off himself in here. I wish they'd just do it at home.

    • Susan: I need a Psych consult. My patient thinks he's a vampire.
      Abby: Count Fred? Where is he?
      Susan: Exam 2.
      Abby: Is there a nurse in there with him?
      Susan: No. Why?
      Abby: He's a vampire.
      Susan: What do you mean he's a vampire?
      Abby: I mean, he drinks people's blood.
      Susan: You're kidding, right?
      (Abby, Gallant and Susan see Count Fred on the floor drinking with a straw from a pack of blood. He smiles shyly. They watch him in astonishment.)
      Susan: That's nasty.

    • Gallant: Excuse me, ma'am. Are you Dr. Carter by any chance?
      Lewis: Lewis. I don't think he's in yet. And I'm not old enough to be a ma'am.
      Gallant: Sorry about that. I'm supposed to meet him here around eight.
      Lewis: Mmm, you're a tad early.
      Gallant: Yeah, it's my first day. I guess I was a little excited.
      Lewis: You'll get over it.

    • Patient: All my problems started when I met this girl in an after-hours bar. She bit me.
      Dr. Lewis: She bit you where?
      Patient: In the alley outside the club.
      Dr. Lewis: No. Where on your body?
      Patient: My neck. I'm pretty sure she was a vampire.
      Dr. Lewis: That's a hickey.

    • Abby: We've all cried. Sometimes it's the only thing you can do.

    • Carter: You know, I used to have a crush on you?
      Lewis: Used to???
      Carter: It's all coming back to me.

    • Frank: How come there's no donuts in the lounge?
      Abby: No petty cash.
      Frank: There was 50-bucks in there yesterday!

    • Romano: You're scaring me, Peter. You're not your usual jolly self today. You haven't developed a drug addiction or a drinking problem like the rest of your misfit buddies in the E.R., have you?
      Benton: Nope.
      Romano: Give it time.

    • Gallant: What's the most unusual medical case you have ever seen?
      Greene: I had a guy with a live bullfrog shoved in his ass once.

    • Lewis: You were stabbed?
      Carter: Twice. I don't recommend it.
      Lewis: Can I see the scar?
      Carter: What? No!
      Lewis: Come on, don't be bashful. Show it to me!
      Carter: No! Get your own.
