  • Cordey facing accusations

    7.4
    This episode was somehow weaker than most episodes. With last season, this season has started much weaker and it is seen by every episode.



    The best storyline of this episode was Cordey's who has to face shadowing controlling woman who follows her every step, then her patient dying, hearing that she is accused of being "angle of mercy" and killing her patients. She goes home only to find that Rachel has not taken care of Ella and they argue. It is all too much, I totally understand her.



    All other storylines - specially Abby between Luka and Carter and the way Carter was so cruel with her... And I cannot stand that woman Nicole at all. And they have somehow made Kovac character somehow - everything he does it looks like in good reason - like living with Nicole, but despite that, there is some bitter tune with everything.moreless
  • There is panic after a patient is discovered to have meningococcus and abby, carter , luka and nicole face their problems..

    8.6
    when that patient was discovered to have meningococcus i wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it was the boy went gray and his fingers turned black i couldn't believe how fast it happened and it was sooo realistic.!



    Abby is definetly hung up on Luka or just concerned for him There's a very thin line between but i'm not sure she knows how she feels.I can understand her questioning Luka about nicole he's getting too involved to fast , maybe he is looking for a rebound unlike carter.,



    I'm slightly confused on the whole carby situation is Abby signaling at that she broke up with Luka for carter but for some reason it's not good enough for him. I think it's the whole Abby hung up on luka problem i guess if she thinks about what she wants and carter accepts it they'll get together unless susan gets there before... have to wait and seemoreless

    • Carter: I think I twisted my knee doing that damn locust position.
      Susan: No, it's "lotus," like the flower.
      Carter: Oh, well that explains why it hurts. I was doing the "grasshopper."

    • Abby: O.k. You gotta help me out... I don't know what to do. Rub your back? I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to do here.
      Carter: Well, I'm not exactly sure how I'm supposed to comment on your love-life.
      Abby: I said no because I was waiting for something to happen... with us.
      Carter: You've been waiting?
      Abby: Yeah.
      Carter: But you weren't doing much to move it forward.
      Abby: No, you gave me an ultimatum. You stood right there and gave me an ultimatum, and I did what you asked and you have done nothing.
      Carter: What did I ask you to do?
      Abby: I broke up with Luka.
      Carter: First of all; you didn't break up with Luka for me.
      Abby: I didn't?
      Carter: No. Second of all; you didn't break up with Luka.
      Abby: Really? I'm pretty sure I did.
      Carter: Well, then why do you care so much about what he does or what he thinks, or who he helps, or what he thinks about you!
      Abby: I dated the guy for a year, there's gonna be some history.
      Carter: Maybe too much history.
      Abby: Well, yeah. I had a life before John Carter. If you want someone with no history you're gonna have to find yourself a virgin.
      Carter: No, I'll settle for someone who isn't hung up on somebody else.
      Abby: You don't have to settle for anything, Carter. (Walks away)

    • Abby: I got asked out by a fireman today.
      Carter: Really?
      Abby: Mh-mm...
      Carter: Ankle guy?
      Abby: Yeah. Hard to believe?
      Carter: No.
      Abby: He was good looking.
      Carter: Big?
      Abby: Yeah. Funny.
      Carter: Invite me to the nuptials.

    • Fireman: Would you like to go for coffee or something?
      Abby: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm... not available.
      Fireman: There is a boyfriend.
      Abby: Ah, well.
      Fireman: You don't know?
      Abby: I don't know... But thank you.

    • Carter: What's your problem?
      Abby: Nothing.
      Carter: Still fighting?
      Abby: No. Luka has a new project.
      Carter: Oh, like what? Coin collecting?
      Abby: Good call. That cookie girl. She works here now.
      Carter: Why do you care?
      Abby: I don't... What? I don't.
      Carter: O.k. (leaves)

    • Luka: So, uh. Listen... about Nicole.
      Abby: You don't have to explain.
      Luka: I want to.
      Abby: No really. It's none of my business... It just seems like you're going way out on a limb for someone you barely know.
      Luka: She lost her job.
      Abby: Yeah, but is that your problem?
      Luka: Why not help?
      Abby: Is she like your girlfriend now?
      Luka: I got her a job, that's all.
      Abby: So it's not like she's living with you. (silence) She's living with you?
      Luka: Just till she can save some money for her own place.
      Abby: Luka!
      Luka: She was staying at a hostel.
      Abby: So?
      Luka: So, she's a sweet girl. I'm trying to help.
      Abby: You don't have to help everybody.

      Carter: We're friends
      Susan: You're shaking.
      Carter: I know. I'm going back to cow. It's actually kinda undefined... Abby. She just broke up with Luka.
      Susan: I get it.
      Carter: What?
      Susan: You don't wanna be the rebound guy.
      Carter: Not exactly.
