  • Things getting stolen...

    I most say, I loved this episode. Just start with the things going on: captain having day off, Marissa messing up this time (I loved the call and question:" What you messed up this time, Rabbit" "It was Marissa.."), the whole storyline with those drug addict patiences. One affecting Glenn, other affecting Nancy.. And ofcourse the whole Nancy/Rabbit thing.. I mean, Rabbit was on his best "cool" attitude this episode, breaking classes, riding along.. playing funny when they realised helicopter is gone.

    So.. I most say.. it was very good episode.. It had fun, it had action, beautiful meaning.. and more action.moreless
  • Boone is acting Captain for the day so things start piling up. First Marisa and Rabbit lose their helicopter to a former military pilot. Then later Nancy and Glenn get all of their Morphine stolen out of their rig by a supposed patient.moreless

    Great episode. Very entertaining. We have Nancy and Rabbit continuing in a very normal way from the last episode. We have Tyler climbing a tree because Boone is sitting at a desk all day. Finally we have Nancy and Glenn fighting all day about certain kinds of patients.

    Nancy and Rabbit! After what happened before you'd think they'd shy away from this. To be honest I don't think I've seen either of them this happy in the first nine episodes. So whatever they are doing, keep it coming!

    Poor Tyler! With Boone playing acting Captain he has no paramedic to drive around until Marisa and Rabbit loose their helicopter. OK! How do you loose a helicopter? You'll have to watch the episode to find out?!? So finally Tyler gets to run around town with a paramedic and a pilot.

    Glenn and Nancy are going around to all the junkies in town warning them about bad junk on the street. It turns out Glenn has past experience with this that comes out when a young school teacher passes out in class from drugs she took a few days before. Eventually the real problem is the loss of the Morphine by one of the junkies as that is a controlled substance and both Glenn and Nancy could lose their jobs over that.

    A really nice, even episode with some really good bits and some interesting action. One of the most balanced episodes of this show since it first started keeping a nice edge between the emergency calls and the development of the characters lives. I think they might have had a winner if more episode were like this one. Thanks for reading...moreless
