    I loved it when Carter chewed out Weaver in the ER.

    Carter's walk-out was pretty funny in bits, especially in how he had no idea what he was doing.

    I wonder who'll get the axe among the 3 nurses (will it be any of the regular nurses? How about Yvette Freeman, the one that lost over 110 pounds over the summer)?

    Glad to see Abby trying to stay on the wagon at the nightclub. Deb's living it up after being shook up as the hostage for the guy in search of pain killers.

    I'm glad to see Romano back in the ER, even if his arm's in a sling: "Never trust a lesbian to do a man's job." [​IMG]

    I loved when romano said "as you can see, i'm short handed"
    then Carter laughed and Romano said it was no joke!

    Ya, I was worried about the Abby/alcohol thing...that's why she looked at Carter when Chen and Dr. Lewis asked her to the club. I was getting a little bored with the lady with the opera singer until they started playing a piece and she turned off the machine. I liked Abby's bro (Shades from That Thing You Do).

    Q) Now, who is Pratt's roommate? I know he's a dude that they took in when he was 9, but is he a slow (mentally)? Did they come out and say that he has mental difficulty? Is that part of the reason Pratt became a doctor?

    Speaking of Pratt, I always love watching how he and Chen get along.

    Best line: "he hasn't fingered it out yet"

    Also: "the last time I worked in the ER I had a ponytail and a lava lamp"

    Yeah, even though the situations should have been really tense, it seemed the writer wanted to keep the dialog more light, lively and funny/ironic.

    Amazing how Romano can have all of 3 lines and get the biggest chuckles out of the episodes.

    Could Weaver have less compassion for her employees?

    I can't imagine they will fire any of the regulars on the show, but Weaver did say that Carter had to fire 3 veteran nurses.

    So did they put Romano's arm back on?

    Yeah, his arm was re-attached, but it is useless for now.

    When the psycho (don't know his real name, but he's the guy from Oz) was waving the gun around, I had my fingers crossed that he'd move it away from Chen and put a bullet in Pratt. I find his character particularly grating and abrasive and I'd like to see him exit like Malucci did last season.

    How did Romano lose his arm?

    Carter's family has millions. Why didn't he just get the family trust to make a tax-deductible donation to cover the security devices? Now 3 innocent people are out of a job, so he can be a "hero". Nice guy.

    Romano lost his arm in the season premiere.

    Romano was on top of the hospital waiting for helicopter patient transport and he was trying to manuever his patient over Kovach's patient (who was in line first), and as Romano got near the helicopter, his clipboard blew away and Romano reached out to grab the clipboard and the tail rotor of the helicopter sliced off Romano's left arm in the middle of the bicep/tricep upper arm region. It was pretty gruesome and they showed it get sliced off in slow motion too.

    Yeah I liked the episode last night also. I wonder how many of the ER staff will still be cheering Carter when they find out it will cost them 3 nurses. Oh well I am sure we will get to find out.

    I have a question for those of you who can view ER in HD, does the picture seem a bit "soft" to you? It does not look anywhere near the quality of some of the CBS/ABC HD offerings. Is this normal?

    Laters,
    Jeff

    I bet we'll never know who gets fired. This seems inconsequential. They would probably get rid of 3 "unknown" nurses.

    Romano is still the best!

    Plus it also showed his dedication when Carter stayed to "clear the board" once the deal was struck between him and Weaver. And to think, they used to live together as roommates...

    One of my favorite parts was in the very beginning when Carter and Susan were talking about those guys who put those bumper stickers on your car and how to get them off while the guy was going psycho.

    This episode was certainly written to establish Carter as the leader and the focal point of ER. I just don't know if it worked. In fact, the more new episodes I watch, the more convinced I become that this show should have left the building last year at the latest.
