Episode Summary

EDIT
When a coal mine collapses, Dr. Brown, together with Edna, Linda and Harold Abbott, rush to the scene to assist their neighbors. One miner is Will Cleveland (guest star James Earl Jones), a jazz pianist who has recently become Ephram's mentor. The other is Abbott's next door neighbor (guest star Beau Bridges), whose outrageous building plans Harold has tried to thwart. The third one, Andy's patient Ellie Beels (guest star Kirsten Nelson), who has been trying to conceive a baby. All three doctors utilize their special skills under terrible conditions, but it is Andy who must confront his biggest fears in order to save lives.moreless

  • Too Much Drama...

    I love Everwood, I really do, but this episode is just too forced for me. I did not believe the mine story lines for one minute. I believe them as country and/or local doctors, but really, as emergency doctors, I just did not see it or believe it.



    The Will and Ephram story line is good, and very important to the show, but I don't know, I just do not know why, but I just do not feel this episode as a whole.



    Really, I truly believe Everwood is one of the best shows that every graced the TV, but this is just not one of the best one, especially after the banned episode that was on a week before.moreless
  • Two forgotten stories are woven around the collaps of the local mine shaft. James Earl Jones and Beau Bridges guest star.

    In the 4years watching Everwood this is my favorite episode. It doesn\\\'t advance the overall story but it introduces interesting characters and shows Ephram to be a teenager in the real world(not just the brat he is sometimes at home). James Earl Jones and Gregory Smith create the most interesting relationship in the series with the exception of Ephram/Amy to date. And the story of the lighthouse, albeit fluffy, is very heart-warming. For a filler episode it dosen\\\'t get any better that this.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Harold says that one of the injured miners has his pupils dilated; immediately after, Andy examines them but they aren't dilated at all.

    • Everwood has a college and many other urban amenities, yet apparently there's no town hall, since the town council must meet in the local cafe to decide whether or not a lighthouse should be built in town.

    • When Harold Abbott's next door neighbor is building his lighthouse, the houses across the street are in the same plane as those on the Abbott's side of the street. However, the episode's last scene (a miniature) shows the lighthouse in a typical mountainous mining town with terraced streets (and with a slope of about forty degrees).

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Bright: I can do this... if you'll help me. If there's any chance you're still available for help.
      Chris: If you'll tell me the one person you'd like to have dinner with and why.
      Bright: I don't know.
      Chris: Think about it. Who's somebody you have questions for? Who do you talk to in your head?
      Bright: I... I talk to Colin sometimes.
      Chris: What do you say?
      Bright: I just... I tell him how much more fun things were when he was here. I tell him I'm a mess, and I've pretty much screwed up all the plans that we ever had. And I wonder what he would do if he was me, 'cause, man, he could handle anything. He was, like, fearless. I... I'd tell him I miss him.
      Chris: Good. That's your essay.

    • Doctor Harold Abbott: Oh, my back hurts, my feet hurt, my clothes hurt. Starting tomorrow, I'm giving up fossil fuels.
      Doctor Linda Abbott: Ohh! That was some pretty strong work today, Harry.
      Doctor Harold Abbott: Oh, thanks. Didn't do so bad yourself, using your hoodoo powers of suggestion to bamboozle that poor woman out of her pain.
      Doctor Linda Abbott: I am way too tired to take that as anything but a compliment.

    • Narrator Irv: The town of Everwood was built around a silver mine opened in 1857. In 1929, like much of America, the mine closed and a lot of families learned what it meant to go without. It wasn't until another 10 years later that someone started snooping around another part of the mountain and found a kingdom's worth of coal waiting to be unraveled. The mines reopened and that many people didn't have to go hungry anymore. From silver to coal, just like that. A good example of how something you never considered before can become your whole focus and blazing new relief all of a sudden.

    • Narrator Irv: When it's going right, life changes minute to minute. On a random Tuesday in 1939, coal unexpectedly became important to the entire town of Everwood. On another day some 75 years later, it was a lighthouse suddenly on everyone's mind.

    • Will: (to Ephram) Who the hell are you?

    • Ephram: (To Will) Oh I saw that! That was you liking something. (Mocks him) Impossible, I'm a scary old man. I like nothing and no one!!
      Harold: (To Andy) You can do this. That's what makes you so irritating!
      Andy: (To Ephram) He (Will) sounds like a nice guy.
      Ephram: (To Andy) Not even close.
