    This episode starts to get "a little dramatic" as Jackie puts it when Coop gets angry at Jackie for forging a donor. Cooper has this over Jackie and it forces her to become defensive and Edie (Jackie) plays the bad cop perfectly. (I have to say though that Coopers "disorder" is getting strange with him grabbing all the time). The kissing thing also seemed a bit strange, but it definitely adds an even playing field with Cooper which I think was pretty smart on the writers part. Jackie almost gets busted with her ring on while she has to wear it almost all day before having it "surgically removed" while O'hara takes it off with a cast saw. Jackie's character gets even more in depth when we find out that she's taking tap lessons with her daughter who is also in school with her husbands ex girlfriend from high school.



    Eddie consoles himself on the cot while his office is being replaced by a machine. Jackie gets back to business with Eddie and gets busted by Zoe the annoying adding more gossip worthy dialogue between Zoe and the rest of the employees in the All Saints ER.



    Good Laughs. Excellent Episode.moreless

    Things are getting out of control for Jackie and she's showing some signs of desperation and although this darker jackie is starting to alienate me i most confess that is also very interesting to see cause in the end Jackie isn't a likable person, she's a real one with all her flaws and her humanity. Hurting herself only to justify cutting the ring is a desperate measure and a clear sign that she loves her double life. One character that could be more develloped is cooper. I think he's going to be annoying after this kiss thing, but overall this is a great example why Nurse jackie is so good. It's funny without being stupid, it's simple and carries out some believable characters.moreless

    • Dr. O'Hara: Do you ever knock?
      Jackie: Favor?
      Dr. O'Hara: Only if you're not angry anymore.
      Jackie: Oh, please.

    • Jackie: Coop is on a tear. I cut some corners with a potential donor.
      Dr. O'Hara: Did you do anything illegal?
      Jackie: I did.
      Dr. O'Hara: Could you be fired?
      Jackie: At the very least. Strangely, I could live with that.
      Dr. O'Hara: Okay, then.
      Jackie: What I cannot live with is Coop holding this over my head.
      Dr. O'Hara: Well, I'd offer to dress him down for you, but unfortunately, I suspect he'll get all grabby and and wreck a perfectly good bra. Besides, you're a smart girl. You know what to do.
      Jackie: I do. I do?

    • Dr. O'Hara: Clearly, you don't know me well enough to know that I'm famous for not making the same mistake twice.

    • Dr. O'Hara: Keep pouting and you're face will freeze.

    • Jackie: What are you doing here?
      Zoey: Super obese is bigger than morbidly obese!
      Jackie: Zoey, what makes you think I'd want to talk about that with no shirt on?
      Zoey: You said get back to me.
      Jackie: It's a figure of speech, Zoey. Get out of here!

    • Jackie: Zoey walked in on me and Eddie (Dr. O'Hara bursts out laughing), and I kissed Coop. Yeah, I thought you'd like that.

    • Mo-mo: If I can do one good thing a day, I feel good about my life.
      Jackie:That's doable.
      Mo-mo: Believe me, it's harder than it sounds. Plus, I got a lot of bad shit I'm trying to make up for.
      Jackie: I don't believe you, Mohammed.
      Mo-mo: That's 'cause you're a good person.

    • Dr. Cooper: How stupid do you think I am? Don't answer that.

    • Mo-mo: What's up with O'Hara?
      Jackie: Who knows.
      Mo-mo: Usually she says hello.
      Jackie: No, she only says hello when she's bored. Or when she's wearing something new and she wants someone to notice.
      Mo-mo: God, you're right. Those Chanel pumps are hot though.
      Jackie: I know she has taste. Doesn't mean she has manners.

    • Zoey: You and Eddie are really cute together.
      Jackie: I am not afraid to kill you in front of a priest.
