Did You Know?


When Carol goes to the fridge to drink from the carton of milk, it clearly says "Lucky" on the top of the carton. "Lucky" is a grocery chain in California, not in Chicago which is where they're supposed to be. See more »


Dr. Mark Greene: You carry a gun?
Dr. Maggie Doyle: Under the front seat of my car. I was at the drive-thru once, waiting for some fries, and this punk walks up, and sticks a knife in my face. He wants my wallet. So I reach under the seat, grab the .357, stick it up his nose, and whoa, could that kid run.

Make a Wish (#3.21)
26 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mark is back to work after his assault and police says that it was not related to patients. I think we will hear more about it in the final episode. Something tells me it has to be patient related. Of course they could have just put that threat together with the assault to confuse the viewers, but wouldn't it be too much of coincidence?.

Carol goes into premature labor. It is interesting to see what will happen with the baby. Was pretty dramatic and I am sure in the next episode we will know what will happen. Most likely will stay alive, that wold bring more stories for Peter.

Great surprise party for Carol. It is usually nice to see them all celebrating together.
