  • Great Show!

    9.1
    Made me cry, so must have been great! also, re: goofs and nitpicks above, kate clearly says 'the' in regards to the organs, not 'her'.....give it another listen! I had forgotten how wonderful it is to watch and listen to Treat Williams, always a favorite but I never caught Everwood for some reason....I hope they give this show a chance I'd like to see how the characters develop....

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goofs and nitpicks: In a previous episode, Kate claimed to be a former surgical nurse. Given her medical training, when she finds the mother of the shaken baby has slit her wrists, she should have known to have the woman hold the towel over the wounds herself immediately instead of holding it there for her at first. In Basic First Aid the Red Cross teaches you to avoid contact with blood whenever possible.

      She also should have had the woman maintain pressure on her wounds until they got her to a treatment room. You don't uncover a wound once you star to apply pressure unless the bleeding has stopped completely.

      Finally, when she spoke with the woman at the police station, Kate said "her" lungs and "her" heart, etc., but the donor was a baby boy.
