After a birthday dinner with the boys - even Norman, who rushes off early to greet a hospital accreditation inspection trio- for Mark Sloan, he gets stuck in handcuffs used for a surprise stripper; alas Jack forgot to ask for the keys from Community General's old security agent McCreedy, who just got fired, replaced by Norman's new, show-piece security force, and lost the keys years ago anyway. Yet Mark has worse to hide from the inspectors: a murder victim which mysteriously appears without ID in the hospital pharmacy and disappears with the presumed murder weapon before Steve arrives. Luckily he's identified as lawyer Lorenzo P. Kotch by footage on TV; he was mixed up in motive-providing matters like a nasty divorce and a culinary business war, even the inspection chairwoman hates him. His corpse appears and disappears again and Mark thinks of another twist... Written by KGF Vissers

Sandra Dee Robinson is impressive in this episode
20 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sandra Dee Robinson plays a key role in the opening of The Busy Body, playing a cop at Dr Sloan's birthday party at a restaurant. It was a male-only event (except for Sandra's role of course), and Amanda and Delores aren't at all impressed by not being invited, and the role played by Sandra's character at the party.

Here the team work to solve the murder of a patient, who happened to be an infamous divorce lawyer, and many people wanted to cause him harm. The patient is found in the pharmacy room, and then gets being mysteriously shifted!

The new security personnel Norman appointed turn out to be nightmares and can't even keep track of a corpse that keeps being shifted furtively around the hospital by the murderer. At the end Norman fires them. I can only imagine they ended up taking TSA jobs post 9/11 and singling out any minority that they don't like the look of if you know what I mean.

The ending is upbeat, with Delores giving Dr Sloan tap dance shoes, with Dr Sloan doing a quick performance to round off this episode.
