  • Changes are coming... and already here

    So.. the wedding is over and Abby and Luka have to deal with it - not that they have trouble. Only it is weird to see Abby referred as Mrs Kovac. Morris and Hope.. that was somehow funny but also very beautiful. And I was happy that Sarah could stay with Tony as it looks like she really loves to live with him..

    And Neela... dealing with that patient of her and two man of the patient's life.. and looking for Ray. How he just can be missing after this?

    Anyway.. it was nice to have ER back after they turned it down. And it was great episode.moreless
  • Good episode, but this should be a season premiere as it feels like the start of something new (because the previous episode seemed to be a season finale).

    Best line: Morris says to Luka "Your wedding happened and now everything's changed. You're married, I'm with Hope, you're not the chief anymore, there's new ramps in the bathroom. It's a brave new world. Gates is still a pain in the ass though, at least there's something you can count on." - Spot on, Archie!

    Sweetest scene: The newlyweds in the morning. Abby proudly receives her first letter addressed to "Mrs Luka Kovac"! Luka shows her a bikini that he bought her for the honeymoon.

    Funniest line: Luka (cool sunglasses!) & Abby comes into the ER and Morris introduces them as "Mr & Mrs Luka Kovac, Dr & Mrs , Dr & Dr..." Newbie on the ER staff: Moretti from ICU, a place he obviously doesn't like to work in, but he seems to have plans for the ER. – Something makes me feel that I'm going to like him. Stanley Tucci is a great actor.

    Nice scene: Abby talks to radiologist Bettina about working with the person you live with: "It's nice to go home with someone who understands..."

    Most annoying: Larry presuming that Sam is his girlfriend.

    Most awkward scene: Neela in the elevator with Dubenko and Mae-Lee.

    Cutest scene turning into ominous scene: Luka & Joe watching a Croatian soccer match on tv. Abby comes in from work, and all is well until Luka gets a phone call from Croatia..... And where is Ray? Neela goes to his apartment, but he isn't there. Katey gets phone call in the middle of a code. Is it Ray calling? To be continued....moreless
  • Luby 4ever :)

    I really loved the wedding episode and now that they're finally married, Luby of course still is so great! Let's hope this is gonna last!!

    They storyline with Morris and Hope is really sweet, I like them together. I saw Busy Phillips on Dawson's Creek back in the days when she was portraying this wannabe-rockstar b!tch on drugs (I still loved her even then!) and I think it's a really interesting role this Hope. And it was just great how she had to almost force Archie out of the honeymoon sweet :D

    Also: what the heck has happened with Ray? I'm scaredmoreless
  • Luby - Happily married.

    I loved this episode ..

    The Luby scenes was SOOO GOOOD.

    I liked the first Luby scene when Luka show Abby the bikini and the last, when Joe and Luka watch football.

    But that phonecall was creepy.

    He cant go back to Croatia. I didnt like Moretti, I dont know why but i just didnt .

    He is so annoying.

    I love what they're doing to Hope and Morris, but if Luka and Abby leave Hope and Morris are never going to keep the show up.

    Ray, i dont like him and never going to but i still feel bad for him.


    I didnt like the scene with him and Sarah!

    but i liked when Morris said everything changed, but gates is still a pain in the ass, that will never change or something like that..moreless
  • Back to reality for the ER gang...

    After a fantastic wedding episode, it was back to business as usual for our favorite medical drama. This episode introduced Dr. Kevin Moretti, an ICU doc who is about to take the open chief position given his dissatisfaction with how the ER operates. He's gonna be one tough cookie; kinda like Clemente but a little less nutty. Abby and Luka adjusted to being married which wasn't much different from before they were married. Larry actually referred to them as "Luby" a nice shout-out to the fans. Oh, and speaking of Larry, he drove Sam crazy assuming they were now boyfriend/girlfriend since they made-out at the wedding. I was wondering who that was. Hope and Morris were cute together in the beginnings of their relationship. And Pratt is still pursuing Betina despite her resistance. Oh, and because we can't seem to go a week without talking about Gates; he decided he wanted to be Sarah's guardian. I'm so over Gates, give us a break from him! Of course the writers decided not to deliver on the cliffhanger; whatever happened to Ray? Spoiler alert! The previews showed he was alive and conscious. I was so relieved because if they gave him amnesia and made him forget Neela I would have been so mad! Luckily, he's still conscious but he doesn't look too happy. Granted he was hit by a truck. After the huge deal they made about closing the ER there weren't any big changes. I wouldn't have minded a set change. Oh well, guess it wasn't in the budget.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (Morris is on the phone to the hotel)
      Morris: Chocolate covered strawberries, room 1258. pause No. No, no, no, no. I haven't checked out. There must be some mistake.
      Hope: There's no mistake. I checked out of the hotel.
      (Morris hangs up the phone)
      Morris: Why, Why? I paid for three more night.
      Hope: I know you did, which is crazy! I got them to refund your card.
      Morris: I don't... I don't want a refund! Let's call them back. (Morris goes to pick up a phone, but Hope stops him)
      Hope: Archie! Stop. Look, the flowers, the spa treatment, it's all lovely, but i don't need it. It's time to get back to our real life.
      Morris: I don't want real life. I liked... I liked fake life. I like waking up together and taking bubble baths and eating bonbons for breakfast. I don't want our crazy wedding fling to end!
      Hope: Who said anything about it ending?

    • (Pratt is on his cell phone)
      Pratt: Where the hell is my sept tri-axle? No, it's Pratt. P-R-A-T-T! Hell, no, I'm not new! Are you? Just send the stuff down!

    • (Neela and Gates have had a fight in the ambulance bay; and Sam and Larry, who has an unrequited crush on Sam, have seen it)
      Larry: Wow, I hope we don't end up like that.

    • Luka: Does this mean you'll change into your bikini?
      Abby: Maybe, when Joe goes to bed.
      Luka: Joe! Go to bed!

    • Abby: (looking through the mail) You've got to be kidding me.
      Luka: What?
      Abby: Married five days and I'm already getting mail addressed to Mrs. Luka Kovac!

    • Luka: You couldn't find anyone to cover your shift today?
      Abby: No. That's the problem with surprise weddings--it's hard to plan.

    • Sam: I am not your girlfriend, Larry. You know that, right?
      Larry: Oh, come on, Sam...
      (Sam takes him aside and whispers)
      Sam: We made out, at a wedding. It's what drunk, single people do at weddings. It doesn't mean we're an item.
      Larry: Well, I'm not the type to take sex casually, Sam.
      Sam: (O=offended) We did not have sex!
      Larry: It depends on how you define sex.
      Sam: Larry! We did not have sex!
      Larry: What? Outercourse doesn't count?

    • Morris: It's like your wedding happened and now everything's changed, you know; you're married, I'm with Hope, you're not the chief anymore, there are new ramps in the bathroom. It's a brave new world. Gates is still a pain in the ass though. At least there's something you can count on.

    • Morris: (to Luka and Abby) Well, your wedding was awesome. I just hope that thing I did didn't make you lose your security deposit.
      Luka: What thing?

    • Abby (to Luka): Being married isn't going to change the fact that I don't cook, or sew, or keep track of your socks.

    • Title: "Sea Change"
      The title of this episode is drawn from William Shakespeare's The Tempest. It refers to a profound and transformative change in one's life, such as in the play, when the sea changes a body cast into it to something altogether different:
      "Nothing of him that doth fade
      But doth suffer a sea-change
      Into something rich and strange."
