  • Everything about Weaver...

    8.8
    We now learn and see who is Weaver as her past just comes to her and she has a change, after all those years, to finally see her mother. It was so beautiful episode and over long time, a episode that really moved me - the emotions, the way Carry was just looking for acceptance and the way it looked, mother has none to give her. The irony of their meeting - they really had written such a great story with so strong emotional balance and even if Weaver as lately got really few screentime - this episode was worth it all.



    She is complex char and the complexity seems to be everywhere.



    Loved this episode.moreless
  • We finally meet Wearvers mom.

    I first start watching Er, at the middle of the season 11, so i have no idea who the original cast was, so i didn't knew Weaver was adopted. I like this episode because in a long time we haven't seen Weaver and now she dosen't appear only 3 seconds bossing everybody but get part in the drama, that was cool. On the other hand, i hate morris trying to buy the attendings so he can be the resident shift, i prefered Partt he is better and know more than morris.



    Still hate Duvenko and now more because he is soo into Abby, but Abby hate him, she want to be with Jake who is ugly to.moreless
  • Great to see more of Kerry.

    8.0
    This episode scored bonus points with me because Kerry Weaver was the main star of the episode. It was great to see her reunited with her mother, and then see her struggled to tell her about her sexuality, especially since her mother is Catholic.



    The Ray-Carter-Neela plot at the end was hilarious. A fight between the patient and her husband, which ends up with Ray getting decked with a bedpan, and Neela attempting to also deck the patient. Ha Ha.



    Overall, a must see episode for fans of Kerry!moreless

    • Kerry: I hear everything, Mr.Scanlon.
      Abby: She pretty much does.
      Kerry: So do we have some hope that this gentleman will be sent upstairs in, let's say, our lifetime?
      Jake: Ten minutes.
      Kerry: Thank you. And when you're done with him, do the guy next door. (leaves)
      Jake: (To Abby) Does she have multiple personalities?

    • Neela: Uh, Ray. When you get home, take the back stairs. The front ones are kinda frozen.
      Ray: You didn't shovel?
      Neela: You're kidding, right? ... Oh, and the kitchen window, I couldn't get it to close all the way.
      Ray: Meaning...?
      Neela: Meaning there's snow in the kitchen. A bit of a build up, actually. So you might wanna try turning the oven on and leaving the door open.
      Ray: So it'll melt?
      Neela: It's just a suggestion.
      Abby: She used to be my roommate.

    • Neela: So it's already an every night kind of thing?
      Abby: Since he started surgical rotation, yeah. Dubenko is working him pretty hard, and my place is closer to the hospital.
      Neela: Oh, I see. So sleeping over is basically a convenience.
      Abby: No, we do like each other. And do you know his real name isn't Jake? It's George. It's actually a kind of funny story. I mean, not "funny" funny, but it's...
      (Neela gives her a look)
      Abby: Sorry.

    • (there's a fight, and Neela picks up a bedpan to use as a weapon)
      Neela: What the hell am I doing?
      (Weaver walks by)
      Weaver: Who's winning?
      Sam: Neela was about to deck somebody with a bedpan.
      Jerry: I've always wanted to see something like that.
      Sam: It's hard to let go of a dream, isn't it, Jerry?

    • Abby: In what possible universe would I say the words "Let's polka?"
      Jake: I'm telling you. In your sleep, two nights ago. Look, I'm not making this up. You don't think I was surprised?
      Abby: I don't talk in my sleep.
      Jake: How do you know?
      Abby: Even if I did, I wouldn't say "polka." I wouldn't even say "dance." I don't dance. Well, maybe once when I was a kid, I did the limbo.
      Jake: Yeah, maybe that was it. Maybe it was the limbo.

    • Kerry: People are starving, people are being shot at, men are flying planes into buildings, yet the "faithful" are saying, "watch out for those lesbians! They're gonna destroy our god-gifted lives."
