  • Incredibly stupid episode

    5.5
    Well, you just can't create stories out of thin air and add subtle details so that viewers rack their brains to read between the lines and make out inferences. No, you just can't. And the relationship triangles, square, pentagons, and circles never cease to exist in this show. Addison is attracted to Noah, Noah has a wife, Addison treats his wife, Noah likes Addison, but none of this will work. Common, give me a break. Sam looks pathetic, Cooper is gay Pete reminds me of a manwhore, Naomi seems like she's horny all the time. And what on earth is the deal with Dell? First, he is this crazy prepubescent kid in love with Naomi, next he has a kid, and now he like this total loser and cries like a girl.



    Private Practice, thanks for adding a new dimension to drama. And that dimension is stupidity.moreless

    This episode made me feel bad for Dell too, his ex taking his daughter and i wanted to hit her (His Ex)for leaving with out saying a word, but with the loss of his daughter, he was able to talk to a mother who was in denial about her child,he was the best person for the job i think, also I loved that he got more Screen time.



    Didn't care much for the addison/noah/wife, thing i find it a little over rated. I also found Sam a little funny in this episode, hidding be hind a plant just to check naomi out. Naomi seems a little blind at that i mean he knocked whats his name on his butt when she was flirting with him, she had to of seen that. Pete and Neomi's sewing their oats, funny.



    all and all i really liked this episode.moreless
  • The characters here have to move on in various ways in their lives.

    9.0
    I enjoyed this episode of Private Practice as each character moved on in their storylines. I liked that Addison held out against Noah, despite her feelings for him as she did not want to hurt his wife. Violet's pregnancy has moved on a stage and the scene when she has the scan with Pete with her and finds out it is a boy was really sweet. I'm not sure Naomi's doing herself a lot of favours but hopefully she'll be able to settle down soon. She doesn't seem to have had much to do medically for a while now. And it was so nice to see Charlotte and Violet getting on so well after all the anguish there. Good stuff!moreless

    • Noah: Look, I'm sorry if I ... you know ... I shouldn't have. I don't know what's gotten into me. Putting you in this position. Believing that you had feelings for me. I don't know what's gotten into me.
      Addison: You weren't wrong. It wasn't all in your head. But ... I can't let this happen.

    • Naomi: So. You got Maya?
      Sam: Yes. I have Maya, so you go and do your thing with the oats.
      Naomi: With the what?
      Sam: The oats.
      Naomi: Oh, sow my oats. Yes. Yes. Thank you. Thank you for calling him.
      Sam: You know you look a little slutty. Maybe if you changed ... cover up ...
      Naomi: Oh, no, no, no, no. Slutty's good. You know, for sowing oats, slutty is very good, you know. I'm not trying to get a husband here.

    • Addison: Where's Katie?
      Violet: She's still in the birthing suite. She needs some space. I'm afraid I'm not going to get through. She's in there staring at my belly. I represent everything she wants. She hates me for it.
      Pete: She doesn't hate you. She just wants something she can't have. And that's hard.

    • Charlotte: Nothing you can say is going to make someone do something they don't want to do.
      Cooper: Brandon needs her.
      Charlotte: Brandon wants her. What Brandon needs is surgery and to find a woman that's not going to run out on him when the going gets tough.

    • Addison: You shouldn't be here Noah.
      Noah: I am coming to you as a doctor, okay, because I did my homework. You're the best neo-natal specialist on the West Coast and I want the best for my wife.
      Addison: Well maybe what's best for your wife is to not have a doctor who you're-
      Noah: In love with.

    • Charlotte: You really think Uncle Coop would do any better?
      Violet: You know Cooper's mother told me that when he was a kid he had this doll and he carried it around all the time and he named her Ernesta.

    • Charlotte: Hello.
      Violet: He's not back yet.
      Charlotte: Do you expect him back soon?
      Violet: He's getting me soup.
      Charlotte: Soup's good.
      Violet: I despise soup. But it helps when you're queasy. Which I am. Sit down if you want to.
      Charlotte: You're queasy.
      Violet: The word queasy makes me feel ... queasy.

    • Sam: You like women.
      Cooper: Yeah, and you know what? I'm living with one with no sexual benefits, I'm sleeping with one who's way too complicated, and the one place where there can just be men; there are women.

    • Naomi: I am sowing my oats. These are oats. They're oats that are not married cardiologists.
      Addison: Whoa, whoa, whoa. There is nothing going on with Noah, okay. It was a flirtation, but he's married so it's over. At least at a bar there'd be cocktails.
      Naomi: Yeah, but the dudes wouldn't be wearing shorts.
