Quotes

Dr. Robert Romano: Hello, who is this? You like your job? You wanna keep it? Well, then you tell your chief of staff, you know who that is? Good! Well, you tell "Jonesy" that Robert Romano is sending over four critical patients all of whom, I expect to be treated like his own mother but without the inappropriate touching.

Chaos Theory (#9.1)
9 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well that was some eventful episode! I knew we will start with the quarantine where last season ended, but didn't realize it would be such a big issue. They have shown issues in Africa, things happening in a German University working on figuring out what the virus is. And evacuated the whole hospital.

The only ones who stayed were the ones who had to be quarantined. And they ended up spending there two weeks! This was actually the fun part. Pratt and carter playing soccer and breaking a window was very fun. And at the en Weaver asking Pratt to work the day he got released was a good joke too.

But the evacuation was very dramatic and indeed chaotic. There was a real tragedy when Romano had his hand chopped off by a helicopter. Man that scene was shocking. I am worried for him, hope they will be able to save it, at lest he is alive.
