  • Not the best, not the worst.

    This episode wasn't very good. I don't like the fact that no one shows up at Romano's service only Elizabeth, i understand that he was mean and that he like to ridicule people but that dosen't mean he wasn't love and beside as Elizabeth said, he had no family, no wife, no kids, he has only the hospital and i think that the hospital really let him down, shame.



    Well yesterday when i read sam and luka have a moment i think they kiss each other, but it was only a hug!! very disappointing and then poor Alex, the way Sam treat him is very bad, but she is very young and very stupid, i mean she have Alex when she was only 15 wow. The fact that Alex stole a finger it was disgunstin, and poor little thing he felt that her mother dosen't care, because everytime he made new friends she decided to go.



    The only thing good about this episode was seeing Neela drunk, like she said everyone thing she was a saint but, no she isn't. Hate Dr. Pratt with Dr. Gallant sister y really want to beat him , he was soooo snobish and lik: "look at me i'm here!".



    The last thing poor Abby 52% that's really low, why should she choose that carrer if is one of the most dificults?moreless
  • And in the end, no one cares

    Oh.. this episode was somehow dark and somehow burden, but not less enjoyable. Specially I loved the storyline with Elizabeth - finally something good with her as after Mark's death, she has been somehow - less important. She had somehow really special relationship with Romano and even thought they were so different people, she might have been the only one who was able to see trough that evil attitude he tried to have - he saw that soul inside. And now, he is gone and noone cares about him. They did not liked him, because they never saw nor knew who he really was. The scene were Elizabeth reads that letter- from the colleagues and then burns it - it was so symbolic, so well done. A great farewell episode for that characther. And again, one of those who have been long, is now gone.



    On everything else, this episode - it was rather disappointing. Drunk Neela was fun to watch and some char development on her side, but oh.. now start those times - Luka and Sam. Maybe the most horrible paring of the whole serie. And it is only getting worse...moreless
  • It's Romano's memorial service but nobody shows up and Alex is being mischevious again

    8.5
    Of course everyone knows Romano was never the most liked person in the ER but come on the man deserves some respect.Elizabeth was great in this episode i loved the end where she told Kerry she wasn't the only one not to turn up then burned the note that said from the staff of county General.She was right it wasn't from them it was from her and her alone but Robert always adored Corday and the zooming out on that picture of the two together just put that across and hit me;Even if he was unliked elizabeth like the hospital was his life.



    Loved Neela's drunken outburst in this epi rambling about nothing really in particular.. Abby was great as usual and even though she only got a 52 she will always be the best practical doctor in my eyes!moreless
  • That was hard to watch Elizabeth at Romanos funeral and no one else shows up. Just sad.

    8.5
    At the end Kerry apoligizes for not making it and Elizabeth says "You weren't the only one" it just hit me. That was sad. He wasn't a nice guy alot of the time, but it made me even tear up. Which is very very rare for a television show. At least the rest of the staff having worked with him should of showed up. They should of gave a few minutes of their time. They have the rest of their lives to live and he is gone. Wouldn't kill them to show some respect. Makes me sad thinking about it.moreless
  • alex steals a finger luka susan robert dies memorial service you know the drill this is filler

    9.3
    I think that this episode was pretty good! I loved the funny parts with Alex stealing a finger, and lots of other things. I REALLY didnt like when Sam says to Luka, \\\"You dont know anything about raising kids\\\". I would have been like, \\\"B%&*#, you don\\\'t know me!! Who are you??!!\\\" WTF? Sam doesn\\\'t know Luka, so how does she know? Of course, we know that Luka had 2 kids, a happy family. He really should have called her on that. Anyways, I thought it was sad that no one showed up to Robert\\\'s memorial service. I know he was a dick, but still. Kerry should have at least gone to it, she had the most history with him, besides Elizabeth. It seems like the people who knew him were avoiding it, and trying to avoid the fact that he died. Besides that, it was pretty good. I always love Abby\\\'s outbursts. And, ooh...Neela and Mike....sorry. Anyways, this was pretty good, but then again, I always love ER!moreless

    • Abby: (to Neela) You got pissed off at Kovac and Lewis?
      Neela: I didn't mean to.
      Gallant: Oh. So what'd they do?
      Neela: They just looked at me like they couldn't believe it. Like, "You? You're not supposed to get angry."
      Pratt: What's happening to our little girl?
      Neela: Yes, that's how it always is. Except there's different versions of it, isn't there?
      Pratt: What's she talking about?
      Abby: I have no idea, but she's on a roll.
      Neela: (explaining) "Oh, she's a sweet Indian girl. Poor thing. Probably grew up begging for scraps in Calcutta."
      Gallant: You mean you didn't?
      Neela: I've never even been to Calcutta! Or "She's the well-educated British girl: proper, soft-spoken, and docile."
      Pratt: With a very good vocabulary.
      Neela: I'm not any of those things! I'm not Indian, I'm not British, I'm not American.
      Pratt: So what the hell are you?
      Neela: Yeah, well. That's the question, isn't it? (turns to Abby) Do you ever feel like you don't know who the hell you are?
      Abby: No, but I'm very well-adjusted.

    • Frank: Forty-two inch plasma screen? Why would you get rid of that?
      Luka: Well, the Congo isn't exactly HD ready.

    • Lewis: If the kid took the finger, we need to know where it is.
      (Sam pauses and sighs)
      Sam: He won't tell me.
      (Luka leans down to Alex)
      Luka: Alex?
      Alex: In the refrigerator, in the lounge.
      Sam: What?!
      Alex: I put it in there because I know it needs to stay cold.
      Lewis: In the fridge or the freezer?
      Alex: Fridge, behind the juice.
      Sam: You give it up to him just like that? After stonewalling me?
      Alex: Well, he asked nicer.

    • Luka: No school today?
      Alex: It starts late.
      Luka: Why's that?
      Alex: Because the teachers need to talk about us.

    • Weaver: (to Corday, about Romano) He'll be missed, whether we realize it or not.

    • Luka: I'm sorry about the splint.
      Sam: Look, I appreciate you trying to be his friend. I just don't want things to get weird. You're a good guy, I'm sure, but you don't know crap about raising kids, so thanks for the help, but no thanks. I got it covered.
      Luka: (nodding) Okay.

    • Luka: You sent that man up for a pulmonary angiogram?
      Neela: Dr. Lewis wanted to be sure before heparinising.
      Luka: What's your opinion?
      Neela: I'm not sure my opinion matters.
      Sam: Luka, you got a minute?
      Luka: (to Neela) If you don't think it matters, then it doesn't.

    • Sam: Dr. Kovac! Tell me you did not put a splint on my kid's arm.
      Luka: I'm sorry, but we're busy trying to find a man's finger right now.
      Sam: Yeah, and the reason it's missing is because instead of studying here like I told him, he's off with you playing doctor.
      Frank: What?!
      Sam: Not like that.

    • Alex: So... you going back to Africa?
      Luka: Yep.
      Alex: For how long?
      Luka: Not sure.
      Alex: Is it vacation?
      Luka: No, it's work.
      Alex: What kind of work?
      Luka: Like I do here.
      Alex: Isn't it really gross? Aren't there like, a lot of sick people there?
      Luka: That's why they need doctors.
      Alex: You went there before?
      Luka: A few months ago.
      Alex: Did you ever seen a lion? (Luka shakes his head) How about a hyena? (Luka laughs) Sounds like Africa kinda sucks.

    • Pratt: What's up with Shorty's wrist?
      Alex: My mom twisted it when she was drunk.
      Luka: Lounge! Go!

    • Pratt: Need you to sign off a dispo.
      Luka: I thought you weren't presenting to me.
      Pratt: I got over it.

    • Alex: I have wresting in gym class today. I hate wrestling.
      Frank: I never much cared for gym class myself.
      Alex: What a shocker.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • At Dr. Romano's memorial there is a model of the Saturn V rocket (popularly known as the Moon Rocket), a multistage liquid-fuel expendable rocket used by NASA's Apollo and Skylab programs. This is an oblique reference to Paul McCrane's role in the HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon, a twelve part program that tells the story of the U.S. space program from its beginnings in 1961 to the final moon mission in 1972. McCrane portrayed astronaut Pete Conrad in part seven of the series, "That's All There Is."
