Episode Summary

EDIT
The Martin Baker Fan Club
AIRED:

Harm volunteers to defend a psychotic Vietnam vet accused of aiding the suicide of a fellow V.A. patient. While Harm argues in court that Roscoe Martin withheld the victims medication as a way to free him from the trancelike state in which it left him, the prosecution claims that the lack of medication is exactly what caused the man's death. Disappointed with the direction of the case, Roscoe feels that the cards are stacked against him and engineers an escape from the V.A. facility with three other patients. Their escape takes them to Harm's apartment, and a negotiable situation turns deadly when guns are drawn and a SWAT team swoops in to help with what it sees as a hostage situation.

  • Roscoe, the wheelchair- bound former marine from Harm's past, is now being charged with the murder of his hospital buddy who jumped out a window.

    5.0
    This is an okay segment. I found it to be slightly depressing. I would hate to work with sick people. Prescriptions do not always work for everyone. Personally, I believe I would rather be put out of my misery than just be a shell of my former self.



    These people need a voice if they are being mistreated. They live in an environment that they sometimes need to be rough handed and the doctors are only thinking about finding out what the problem is and finding a solution. The patients personal needs get over looked; nobody is really listening to the patient with the problems.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • SWAT Captain: (as Brookhurst holds Harm and Mac hostage) What do they want?
      Brookhurst: Your butt on a spit!
      SWAT Captain: Who the hell is that?!
      Harm: Look, Captain, if you could give us a little time...
      Brookhurst: (interrupting) Yeah, and $25,000 Canadian dollars. No, make that $50,000 and a stripper with big cassavas!
      Mac: Hey! (she glares at him, and he smirks)

    • Harm: (after the "Birdman" died jumping out a window) If he'd swallowed his pills, he wouldn't have been hallucinating.
      Roscoe Martin: No, no. He would have done what he did every day- drooled on his shirt, and soiled his pants. I gave the Birdman back his free will.

    • Roscoe Martin: Tell him how many men you killed.
      Brookhurst: Eat my shorts, Roscoe.
      Roscoe Martin: (to Harm) He's got an anger problem.

    • Harm: In a war stress recovery unit, the patient does not get to determine the course of treatment.
      Roscoe: Call me a trendsetter.
