  • Christina is involved with a patient who thinks she's his wife, but she is in trouble when she has to decide about his surgery and she clashes with Tom.

    Great episode: the relationship between Christina and Tom is revealed as difficult and easy at the same time. They're friends, but they seem to fight for what they believe is best for patients. Christina is too much involved with a patient who believes she's his wife, and he's trying to make her understand. At the end Christina saves the patient's life and they both have a little lesson: "Everybody deserves a second chance". I think this sentence pronounced by Tom is referred to Christina too: it's like he's trying to make her understand that she needs to go on with her life. I love this serial because I think it shows new things and new point of views for the hospital-life.moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • Carl: What happens in Richmond Trinity, stays in Richmond Trinity.

      It is a play on the popular phrase, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." It just means Carl wouldn't tell anyone about what transpired between Christina and the ER patient.

    • Mrs. Lachman: Goodnight Barbie, give my best to Ken.

      Barbie was introduced in 1959 at toy show in New York. Ken has been Barbie's boyfriend since 1961. The dolls are made by the Mattel Toy Company.
