  • Abby's finest moment when she gets called on the scene on a bus accident while riding on a rescue chopper on Thanksgiving.

    9.5
    This episode is no doubt one of the episodes that gives you the finest moments in each of the main characters and that one is about Abby, when she saves the mother aboard a crashed bus near the cliff and how the mother's desperate son tries to save her, Abby realizes what is important in live for rescuing that mother, the love of a child since she is a new mother to Baby Joe. Maura is such a great actress and very underrated. I hope for the best for Maura after her cancer treatment and recovery. This is one of the best episodes I seen.moreless
  • Abby's thanksgiving

    I love this show.. I do not know but the last episodes have been good. I was starting to think there is not going to be episodes like there used to be in old days and it is going only downhills but there are good episodes - this one is. The whole Abby storyline. Transportation, then the bus crash. very emotional, very moving. I totally liked it and the impact that had on Abby too.



    The whole thing with Neela and Gates... I think it can work as a storyline. The only thing that left me feel like distance was Sam's son on ER.. I did not get that.moreless
  • Good episode. A mix of comedy, drama, joy and sadness... and a happy end.

    Sweetest scene 1: Abby is about to leave (to bring back a patient by helicopter from another hospital). She instructs Luka on how to prepare their Thanksgiving dinner. The scene ends with a little kiss before the elevator doors close. Awww...

    Sweetest scene 2: Abby's surprised face as she realizes that Luka & Joe have come to the ER.

    Sweetest scene 3: The Kovac-Lockhart family at the Thanksgiving dinner. Luka looks so worried when Abby doesn't want to tell him about her helicopter ride.

    Good scene(s): Abby being "one of the boys" in the helicopter crew. I like the friendly bickering and that she doesn't allow the others take the mickey out of her.

    Least probable scene: Abby and the "flight nurse" (I dont know, but this is probably not his correct title) jumping off the bus just seconds before it falls down the cliff. Thrilling, but unbelievable.moreless
  • great!!!!

    Oh my god, I really thought Abby was gonna die (well, just for a moment) that is the most exciting (after bloodline) episode I have seen, at the end its all about "scoop and run". I was reading other reviews and the are all right, holidays episodes are great, is so exciting because they always have something different than the normal days on the Er. Well, not so normal….. So talking about Neela and Tony, I don't think he's the real deal for her, I mean he is just playing around, the girl Sara told her he always goes back to them, poor ray just hiding his love for her, but its her decision and ray warned her. At least he found someone to be with, the always good Katy. I loved the end of this episode; they were all together eating from the kovac menu, happy and celebrating thanksgiving.moreless
  • Its Thanksgiving in the ER and Abby and Luka's plans have to wait when Abby has to go help out somewhere.

    9.1
    Great episode! The holday episodes are always great! Alot of people work on Thanksgiving! I wouldn't even thought Thanksgiving is boring! All you do is eat! There is no way I would go on my b-day or Christmas. Whos blood was that when Abby was trying to help that woman on the bus. If it was hers she would be dead so I don't think it is! Abby is so brave going on that bus and getting off just before it fell off a cliff. Gates and Neela take their relationship and that girl comes back. Neela looked very angry and confused!moreless

    • (Meg and Sarah walk in on Tony and Neela making out on the couch)
      Sarah: Oh, my God.
      Tony: Meg, Sarah, this is Neela.
      (small pause, and Sarah runs out)
      Meg: (in a voice dripping with contempt) How many times do I have to tell you Tony? (pauses) When you leave the glass directly on the wood, it leaves a stain.

    • (dispatch is asking if they're available, but the paramedics won't respond because they're about to time out; Abby grabs the radio)
      Abby: (to dispatch) Then put us on the call.
      Dispatch: Paramedic 6, you're assigned to the incident. Who is this?
      Abby: Abby Lockhart. I'm the doctor on board, and we're responding. (the paramedic gives her a hard look) Darling, it's the job!

    • Pratt: Surprise, surprise! You all get me instead of Morris tonight. He begged me to switch so he could spend time with his kids. That's why I'm here. What's your excuse?

    • Weaver: All right; how do you stay so skinny and eat so much?
      Courtney: Uh, look who's talking, little skinny mini.
      Pratt: Well, it seems like good genes to me.
      Courtney: You want to come over and watch some football with me and Kerry tomorrow?
      Pratt: (whispering to Weaver) Damn, you're lucky.

    • Pratt: When (pauses) did you know you were gay?
      Weaver: Are you coming out to me, Greg?
      Pratt: No, no, no, no. I came home and found my brother with another guy.
      Weaver: Really?
      Pratt: Yeah. He says he's just experimenting, that it's only a phase.
      Weaver: And what do you think?
      Pratt: I don't know. Can a straight guy go through a gay phase?
      Weaver: I think it's more likely that he's gay. Hey, and he's telling you what he thinks you want to hear.
      (Pratt grunts)
      Pratt: Okay, but for today, right, he's taking some hot girl from school to the family Thanksgiving. Now, if he was gay, why is he doing that?
      Weaver: I don't know your brother. I mean, I don't know what's going on in his head. But I do know that when I was that age, I brought a lot of boys home to meet my parents.
      Pratt: You did?
      Weaver: Hell, yeah. I mean, I was 30 before I faced up to being gay, but my life got a lot better once I did.

    • (As the ensemble sit down to Thanksgiving dinner Luka has brought in)
      Pratt: Alright! Let's give a toast to Dr. Kovac, or Chef Kovac as he wants to be called.

    • Luka: Americans are so sentimental about their holidays.
      Abby: Ha! This from a guy who celebrates Croatian Independence Day, Croatian State Day and something called Patriotic Gratitude Day.

    • (discussing Courtney Brown)
      Pratt: Who is that?
      Weaver: I just told you who she was.
      Pratt: Come on now, hook a brother up.
      Weaver: You know what? Your gaydar is terrible, even for a straight man.
      Pratt: Oh. Oh, well, you... You have excellent taste in women, Dr. Weaver.
      Weaver: Of course I do.

    • Gates: But really, must you look so hot all the time? Even when you wear this ridiculous hat. I can't concentrate, I can't even talk.

    • Jane: Ahh, the great American tradition of sanctioned glutony.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Luka: Americans--so sentimental about their holidays.
      Abby: This from the guy who celebrates Croatian Independence, Croatian State Day and something called "Patriotic Gratitude Day."
      All three holidays Abby teases Luka about are real Croatian holidays: Croatian Independence is celebrated on October 4, Croatian State Day on June 25, and Patriotic Gratitude Day on August 5.

    • Jane: It's like that story where the guy was hunting dinosaurs and he steps off the path and kills a butterfly and then everything in the future is ever so slightly different...
      Jane is referring to Ray Bradbury's short story "A Sound Of Thunder," a futuristic tale of time travel first published in 1952.

    • Title: "Scoop and Run"
      The title of this episode is a term used by emergency medical personnel. It refers to situations where a trauma patient is sufficiently critical that he/she must be evacuated to the ER before any routine care designed to stabilize the patient for transport (secure airway, assure circulation, etc.) can be given at the scene.
