Episode Summary

EDIT
A belligerent young man with flu symptoms presents a challenge to Morris and Sam when he refuses treatment. Luka and Abby's childcare emergency means balancing baby care with patient care in the ER until a nanny can be found, but the candidates prove less than satisfactory. Luka has an uneasy encounter with Curtis Ames at the hospital, and later Abby and Baby Joe have a "chance" encounter with Ames at the park. Pratt discovers a local church's risky drug exchange program. Neela and Gates square off at an M&M.moreless

  • Morris' show

    So, this is now Morris turn to shine and he does it. i think this is one of the first episodes he does this - is not some stupid doctor but has some emotions and really cares and have passion what he does. The ending with that patient.. it was so caring and from the heart.



    Neela is acting weird but I think I am getting now on the time as so many of my friends who have seen the future episodes have said Neela turns into weird. So, now is the time.



    Abby and Luka and those nannies.. they were really weird...moreless
  • One of my favourite ER episodes.

    Funniest scene: "The nanny scene". In my opinion, this must be one of the funniest scenes ever on ER! The nannies are almost portrayed as "caricatures" – very funny! - and Abby & Luka are interviewing them. Maura & Goran are excellent, and even the cute baby playing Joe seems to be into it! And on top of that, there's that funny "reverse Lukaism" when Luka is correcting the Brazilian nanny's linguistic mistake.

    Scariest scene: Curtis Ames talking to Abby in the park. It seems all very friendly, but then he is picking up baby Joe's toy frog. Ominous ....

    Morris is surprisingly good diagnosing the DID patient. It makes me wonder: Could he perhaps be a good doctor after all?moreless
  • Morris shines in this episode!!

    9.7
    Mid way through Season 13, ER presents us with this episode. At first i wasn't sure about it - there were too many little storylines without the story actually moving forward.



    Then you get to the last scene in the episode, with Morris talking to his patient. Never have i loved Morris more. This character is usually the one that everybody laughs at, and is usually not very serious. But when he talks to Andre about his Hot Wheels, my heart just melts.



    Even though this episode has some great moments from other characters, such as Ames talking with Abby, and a development on the Gates / Neela storyline, this episode easily belongs to Morris.



    One of my favourites!!moreless
  • This episode would have been more aptly title "The Many Facets of Archie Morris"...

    9.7
    It was actually a pleasant surprise watching and episode that held a nice balance between romantic relationships, friendships, and patient plotlines. Actually, I loved this episode, I mean...Morris didn't exactly have an epiphany or anything, but between Weaver taking the job slot that he was eyeing, Sam rightfully calling him a "Little b*tch", and various other characters constantly reminding him of how much he was disliked for his annoying personality, he was sure knocked down a few notches, and revealed that he does have a flip-side to his annoying-ness, and that he does have a compassionate side and craves to be taken seriously. I doubt that he will stop being annoying--that's who he is, but at least we know that he isn't as one-dimensional as we first thought.



    As for the Ames thing...he seems like a nice guy all in all. He's just been dealt a crap hand in life, that's all...and he obviously doesn't know how to live with it. He may stir up something, no question, but I'm pretty sure that it'll just be another potential plotline that will flare and fizzle quickly. By the end of S13 we'll be thinking, Ames who?



    Also, though this has been said already: Sam and Morris totally owned this show--and they rocked their roles beautifully.moreless
  • Neela and Gates relationship heats up. A patient comes into the ER saying he has the flu but it turns at to be more and it causes trouble when he refuses treatment.moreless

    This episode was great! I just love the ER drama! It just makes me want to be a doctor more. Ames is making the show more interesting with him kind of following Abby and Luka around. I don't know if Abby knew who he was. I don't think she is. WOW! That guy is like this guy with glasses who likes hot wheels and this guy who gets angry so easy. Baby Joe is getting cute! OMG!! I have the same frog that Baby Joe had! I can't wait intil the next episode because 2 guys...gay! This season is so awesome!moreless
