    It's a good episode. The title don't make a false picture to this. I think that is really great the way that finishes, that talk between Susan and Mark is something very good to see. In that episode Green and everybody who see, can understand that anyone is perfect, and can do, or in the case save, everybody. Another thing that I realy like in this, was the boy who doesn't know what he is. The way that Dr Ross put the case, and the way that the nurse confronts him, is realy something to see. Sometimes we think that we are great persons and nothing shakes us, but is difficult talk about this, even today.moreless

    Episode that change really nothing. We see the things that are mostly going around there - people come in, some get better, some leave, some have their problems, some die. And I think dr Greene, trying to fix it all, wouldn't be anything surprising but - it was his day off.



    I expected, by the title, this to be a little deeper look into dr. Greene's world but I was disappointed - there was not much to learn. I think the most important thing we learned about him was - he is a fighter. He wants that he is right and he is ready to do a lot of in that name. I do understand that but I imagine there would be many people who won't trough that trouble and risk.



    The only thing this episode has, was some new plots might be started - something Benton discovered, Carter's trouble and Greene's decision to fight with the case until he will get what he wantsmoreless

    • Susan: (comes running) What do you got?
      Carol: Hypothermia, earthworms. Five grand worth.
      Susan: Earthworms?
      Carol: Yeah. They're Belgian. They don't take kindly to cold.

    • Doug: What are you doing here on your day off?
      Mark: I went for a jog and ended up here, and I figured I might as well save some lives.
      Doug: One other good reason not to exercise.

    • (after Mrs. Henry's tests are done)
      Mrs. Henry: I just want to take my worms and go home.
      Carol: I have some bad news for you. Your worms were mistaken for trash and put outside in the snow.
      Mrs. Henry: Oh, no!
      Carol: By the time I found out they were already frozen solid. We brought them in, we tried to warm them with blankets and warm water, we used all our capabilities, but we couldn't get them back. I am very sorry!
      Mrs. Henry: Can I see them?

    • Mark: So, what was the cause of death?
      Pathologist: Typical ER thinking—got to be cause and effect. See, down here we operate on a slightly different gestalt. Sometimes there are answers, but many times, mystery.
      Mark: Not very satisfying.
      Pathologist: You think you're a scientist? You want explanations? Hard answers? Algorithms of care? That's dog crap. Medicine is an art, and art is ambiguous.

    • Mark: Denial is a funny thing; it keeps you from asking the tough questions.
      Susan: What questions are those?
      Mark: Am I dangerous? Should I be practicing medicine?
      Susan: And the answers are: no and yes, in that order.
      Mark: I hope so. I lost my family for this job.

    • Ross: Boy, are you arrogant! There's you and the Pope—you guys are infallible. And then there's the rest of us.
      Greene: Well, as of today, the Pope's on his own.
