  • Little inside to new doctor...

    7.2
    Oh.. this episode was somehow.. funny.. first those all new medstudents who turned ER doctors life into hell. And Pratt is back, we saw Lewis (I already started to wonder what about her) And it was busy day.



    Most of all, I loved this episode as it really opened up for us more of the new doctor - Barnett



    Oh, and the irony with Neela - she is able to work on Er but she is just not able to get no job. And she feels really bad.



    And Carter.. he is getting back on track - little hard but he will be ok.moreless
  • 4th July leaving a busy ER!

    So Pratt's back but he's sporting a large scar and suffering from severe headaches resulting in his departure home.Glad he's ok.



    Abby and Ray aren't getting on and the tension rises after Abby orders a tox screen on one of his patients.Ray initially thinks he was right when nothing shows up but Abby is proved right and Ray is forced to swallow his pride and apologise. I like the pairs relationship a younger version of the witt between Abby and Morris.Especially the Abby rockhart.



    Luka takes Alex to his soccer game and tries to bond with him but Alex tells him he doesn't need another father.I like that Luka tried it was sweet.



    Good ole Corday recently i've really loved her attitude not giving a damn and this epi topped it off.I like the fact she decided to help despite the consequences!moreless
  • So it is the 4th of July, but the episode originally aired October 14th ... kinda silly, but its ER, so who cares!

    9.0
    4th of July, Pratt returns with a humungo scar on his head from the accident. Carter asks him how he is feeling and Pratt says fine, but later on into his shift Pratt says he has a headache and Carter sends him home, Luka comes in to take over for Pratt.



    Poor Neela, since her parents left, she has been depressed, her parents said that they couldnt be there for her anymore, which is sad. She spent her whole day looking for a job and got turned down at a coffee shop and a retail clothing store. The only job she could get was across the street from the ER at the Jumbo Mart. At the end of Abby and Ray's shift, they find out about this and Abby asked why she was doing this to herself and all Neela could say was something along the lines of Well look at me, I'm not even American." ...



    Abby orders tests on Ray patients without his permission and he gets mad at Abby.



    At the end of the day, Abby speculates that the new intern Howard may have OCD .... seems like it to me!



    HIV transplant!!!!! Agh...moreless

    • Carter: Dr. Corday.
      Corday: Carter.
      Carter: Maybe you can help me. I need some help with a patient.
      Corday: I believe Dr. Dubenko's covering the ER today.
      Carter: Well, I don't think that he wanted to take the case.
      Corday: Oh, what? Is it too mundane for our new superstar?
      Carter: I think it may be too illegal.
      Corday: Oh, so he's cowardly and cocky. You know, he's the perfect compliment to Weaver's treachery and ambition. I'm sorry, Carter. If I have to deal with him, so do you. Good luck.

    • (about the ER)
      Dubenko: They warned me about this place. They weren't kidding.

    • Carter: So, you aren't really living in the hospital, are you?
      Barnett: Why, would that be a problem?
      Carter: Might be a problem for Dr. Weaver. She has the place sprayed for interns.

    • Carter: Where is Ray?
      Chuny: Try the roof.
      Carter: What's he doing up there?
      Chuny: I think he lives there.
      Frank: He lives in the call room. He just cooks on the roof.

    • Urbanus: Abby, what would you do if the UA's normal on a two-year-old with fever, no source?
      Abby: Call it viral syndrome, have them follow up with their PMD.
      Urbanus: What if the kid just vomited all the Tylenol he got in Triage?
      Abby: Uh, give him a rectal dose and explain to the parents that the fever won't hurt him.
      Urbanus: And what would you do if a med student...asked you out?
      Abby: Call for a psych consult.

    • (Morris walks by with Urbanus, Penny and Najeeb following him)
      Carter: Hey, Morris. Can you take care of Delacourt in Three?
      Morris: Just a back strain.
      Carter: Don't forget about, uh, femoral and pedal pulses.
      Morris: I never do. Why is it important to check leg pulses in this patient?
      Urbanus: Arterial embolus?
      Morris: (makes buzzer sound) Penny, to you.
      Penny: Peripheral vascular disease?
      Morris: Oooh, close, but no cigar. Maybe a little more studying, a little less time at the hair salon. Next contestant? Back pain can be either presenting symptom...
      Najeeb: (into recording device in his ear) Back pain can be either presenting symptom...
      Morris: ...in abdominal aortic disection.
      Najeeb: ...in abdominal aortic disection.
      Morris: Can I get some fries with that?
      (Morris and med students walk away)
      Malik: I guess it's true what they say. "Those who can't do, teach."
      Sam: (to Carter) Yeah, but what is he teaching them? Yesterday, I caught him injecting lido with epi into a toe. Oh, I'm not kidding.
      Carter: Hey, Morris! Wait up.

    • (While treating a cyclist)
      Abby: (To Ray) Abrasions to the neck and hip, Dr. Bon Jovi.

    • Ray: Hey Rockhart.
      Abby: What did you just call me?
      Ray: Erm...nothing.

    • (Luka and Alex are playing Playstation)
      Luka: You're going down you little freak.
      Alex: You suck.
      Luka: You're worse at this than you are at soccer.
      Alex: Bite me, you Slav bastard.
      Sam: Alex! What did you just say?
      Alex: What?
      Sam: What did you say?
      Alex: Nothing.
      Sam: I heard you. (to Luka) You heard him. What did he say?
      Luka: I didn't hear anything. Might have been the game.
      Alex: Yeah, I'm pretty sure you heard the game, Mom.
      Sam: Yeah well, I don't wanna hear that kind of talk out of you. (to Luka) Or you.

    • Urbanus: That intern, Abby. Do you know if she's seeing anybody?
      Frank: Just me. It's a casual, sexual relationship, but we're always looking for a third.

    • (Rasgotra is asked what she can do)
      Rasgotra: Well, let's see: I can crack open your chest, reinflate your lung and squeeze your heart back to life.

    • Corday: (to Carter, about Dubenko) Well, don't look at me. I didn't hire him.

    • Kovac: What are you doing?
      Carter: Couldn't sleep. Thought I'd get a jump on the day. How's the night shift going?
      Kovac: Ugly, but it's been quiet for the last hour or so.
      Carter: Well, that won't last. Sunburns, blown-off fingers, potluck food poisoning. Nothing like the ER on the Fourth of July.
      Kovac: You sound like you're looking forward to it.
      Carter: Well, anytime you mix alcohol, gunpowder and the great outdoors, you're in for a good time.

    • Abby: (to Ray about an altered patient) What is he, your dealer? Maybe we should tox screen you.

    • (Barnett sees Rasgotra at the counter)
      Barnett: Didn't she used to work in the hospital?
      Lockhart: Neela?
      Rasgotra: Hello and welcome to Jumbo Mart. Can I help you?
      Lockhart: What are you doing?
      Rasgotra: Working.
      Lockhart: Here?
      Rasgotra: We have a special on our Fourth of July cupcakes. Buy two and get one free.
      Barnett: Oh, sweet.
      Lockhart: When you said you were looking for a job I thought you meant at another hospital or a clinic maybe.
      Rasgotra: I didn't have much luck.
      Lockhart: You only looked for one day.
      Rasgotra: This is the only job I can get because I'm a loser.
      Lockhart: You are not a loser.
      Barnett: At least you're close to the hospital.
      (Lockhart grunts and kicks Barnett)
      Rasgotra: Which is as close as I'm ever gonna get.
      Lockhart: That's not true.
      Rasgotra: Yes, it is. I blew it. I blew everything. I've got no job, no apartment, no money. I mean, look at me. I'm not even American.
