  • Nothing new, even if the title success it.

    5.7
    The story seems to be just as always - some cases, some doctors. I do not know but for me it seems some of the last episodes have been much weaker than the previous ones.



    Ok, but we do have some good moments. First Cordey - she is such a lovely addition to the people around and I adore her language, accent - something new. This was new... and adding some different to the show.



    Also Carter - he just seems to have a hard time, like at the beginning of every season. So sad to watch but he will find his way.



    This episode has humor too - Carol and Doug and the drawer. The way the interview clips where just jumped into and out.



    But in the end, I feel it was quite a filler and nothing special.moreless
  • I liked this episode because Corday used her own language in the run through of patient care.

    8.6
    In this one Corday had a whole bunch of London lingo that the others weren't used to-Corday-FBC(carol doesn't understand),she'll need a tube thorocostamy(kerry says chest tube to nurse),Kerry intubates as Corday asks if everyone could might slow down just a bit;I think things will run much more smoothly if we have a little more peace and quiet(Carol stares at her while Kerry just smiles and keeps working), Has anyone bleeped dr. benton (nurse says-oh I like that one; bleeping dr. benton), perhaps someone could just ring him up now (Carol-page,right,page benton - she gets happy like it is a game).moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: In the breakfast in bed scene, Doug tucks a napkin into the collar of Carol's nightshirt. Between shots, however, the napkin corner switches from being tucked in to being spread out.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Tech Guy: Been up to any of the labs recently?
      Carter: Why do you ask?
      Tech Guy: Give me your shoes.
      Carter: What?
      Tech Guy: I said, give me your shoes. They're radioactive.
      Carter: (laughing) You know how much these things cost?
      Randi: Did he just say radioactive?
      Weaver: Carter, give him your shoes.
      Carter: I won't!
      Tech Guy: Yes, you will!

    • Doug: You know what? I love sitting out here on the porch with you. It's--
      Carol: Something new.
      Doug: Something new.

    • Carter: Run my cases by Maggie?
      Mark: That's right.
      Carter: Dr. Greene, excuse me, but I've actually done quite a few more ER procedures than she has.
      Mark: And you are what year?
      Carter: Technically, an intern, first year. And she's second year. But I spent half my surgical internship teaching her.
      Maggie: No, you didn't!
      Carter: I taught you one-handed knots.
      Maggie: Bid deal!

    • Mark: You're in early.
      Carter: Yeah, I wanted to be in before my med student.
      Mark: Ah, your very own scut puppy.
      Carter: Somebody to pick up my labs, do a patient history, the occasional obligatory rectal exam...
      Mark: Someone to abuse.
      Carter: No, no, no. This is about teaching. This is completely about teaching.
      Mark: The way Benton taught you?
      Carter: Or even better.

    • Greene: Henry, teaching point. If she looks like a drunk, smells like a drunk, she is a drunk.

    • George Henry: John, I should mention that I'm not all that interested in working with patients.

    • Doug: I've got to talk to you about something.
      Carol: Oh, Doug, not another serious conversation...
      Doug: You used to say we didn't communicate...
      Carol: I know, but now you're communicating a little bit too much.
      Doug: This is important. Can I have a drawer?
      Carol: What?!
      Doug: A drawer, something you keep your clothes in. Something that I would keep my clothes in.
      Carol: You never wanted a drawer before.
      Doug: Well, that's because I always got up and left, never stayed here. If I could just have someplace to keep a new shirt or a nice pair of socks. I'd settle for underwear.
      Carol: You know, you could just wash your boxers out in the sink, they'd be dry by morning.

    • Weaver: So, David, how are you feeling?
      Morgenstern: Morphine—damn fine stuff.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Doug: (to Carol, to whom he's brought breakfast in bed) Ketchup or Tabasco? With your scrambles eggs. You want something some people consider a vegetable or something more daring?
      Doug is referring to the "ketchup as a vegetable" controversy that erupted early in President Ronald Reagan's first administration. A directive proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for its subsidized school lunch program would have reclassified ketchup and pickle relish from condiments to vegetables, thus allowing public schools to cut out a serving of cooked or fresh vegetables from the federally mandated National Lunch Program child-nutrition requirements. The proposed regulation change was widely criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike, and was never implemented.
