    9.5
    Sweet 'n All was a superb and very entertaining episode of Nurse Jackie. I really enjoyed watching this episode as we see more of how Nurse Jackie lives her daily life by supplementing her coffee with some good drugs. It was really funny to see what happened to Akalitus. I thought the patients and how things worked out from the previous episode was fun. This show really continues to shine with interesting characters, fun stories, and a great pace. This episode had laughs, drama, and intrigue as well as character and plot development. I really look forward to watching the next episode of Nurse Jackie!!!!!!!moreless
  • Nurse Jackie starts her day off with by packing her everyday supply of drugs. When she gets to the hospital the ear she flushed down the toilet is found and a young skater boy enters the hospital. I won't give away too much but everything goes wrong.moreless

    9.0
    A huge improvement upon the first episode. I enjoyed this episode all the way through. It was full of laughs, drama and it was everything I was looking for in the pilot. I hope the show continues like this because if it does, I will definitely tune in every week. If you haven't seen this show yet or have seen the pilot and don't know whether to continue or not. I definitely recommend continuing. I know this review isn't too in depth, but just trust me and go straight on through to the next episode. This episode had a few flaws, especially with the cereal thing (that was really strange)and the I think the show should keep some of it's patients for more than one episode, but overall I give it a 9/10.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Jackie crushes some percocet tablets)
      Jackie: (voice-over) Watch and learn. Percocet should never be crushed, broken or chewed unless you want it to hit your system like a bolt of lightning. Which is only a problem if you're afraid of lightning which I am not.

    • (Dr. O'Hara hands Jackie a bag with dirty clothes)
      Dr. O'Hara: Recycle these, would you?
      Jackie: Did you ever hear of dry cleaning?
      Dr. O'Hara: Saw it in a movie once. Seemed tedious.

    • (After Zoey found the ear floating in the toilet)
      Mrs. Akalitus: I have no choice but to initiate an internal investigation.
      Jackie: I resent what you're insinuating. Why on earth would my nursing student flush a man's ear down the toilet?
      Zoey: But I'm the one who found it.
      Mrs. Akalitus: And there are firemen who set their own fires just to call them in.
      Jackie: You know, you're not wrong. My uncle Gary torched a hobby store. But that was an insurance thing. Anyway, I hope you get the bottom of this.

    • Jackie: Okay, a quick hypothetical. What would happen to a student nurse if she got busted flushing a patient's body part down the toilet?
      Dr. O'Hara: That's so sweet, trying to take my mind off things with your own naughty doings. Was it a penis?
      Jackie: No, an ear. Don't ask.
      Dr. O'Hara: And you blamed the new girl? Well done. Well, she's a student. She won't get fired. Anyway, if you want me for backup, you can always say I ordered her to flush it.

    • Zoey: I'm not sure that I can do this. I mean I... You and Mo-mo, you're all so good at what you do. And the doctors... Oh my God! They're healers. And this place is so amazing. I got into nursing because I wanna help people, and I'm afraid I'm just slowing you down.
      Jackie: What's this about? Nobody ate your muffins? You found an ear in the toilet? So what? You know what this job is honey? This job is wading through a shit storm of people who come into this place on the very worst day of their lives. Just so you know, doctors are here to diagnose, not heal. We heal. All saints is in the business of flipping beds. That's it. End of story. The fact that you have even the slightest inclination to help people puts you miles ahead of 100 percent of the population. So stop crying, okay? Buck up. If you need to cry, go do it in the ladies' room. Is that clear?
