Did You Know?

Factual errors: Mark Greene asks "Tenderness in the anatomic snuff box indicates which common fracture" whilst looking at the patient' wrist, and answers his own question with "navicular". The navicular is an ankle bone, not a wrist bone, nowhere near the anatomical snuffbox which is delineated by thumb muscles.See more »
Dr. Mark Greene:Sasha, what a pleasant surprise. Sasha's one of our five-star chefs in the cafeteria. So what's today's special?
Sasha:Bratwurst. Idiot busboy carries out bin of hot water. Shoom! Right down my boot.
Dr. Mark Greene:Pretty nasty. Normally, I'd amputate, but I'm afraid you'd put it on the menu.
