Episode cast overview, first billed only:


While recovering from his heart attack and under the influence of morphine, Dr. Morgenstern asks Kerry Weaver to take over some of his administrative duties. Doug Ross and Carol Hathaway keep their renewed romance a secret from everyone. Mark Greene and Carol interview candidates for the new desk clerk position. Greene learns that he is being sued for malpractice by the family of a patient who recently died. Dr. Benton and Carla Reece's baby boy is well enough to be taken off the respirator. John Carter's new student, George Henry, is more of a researcher than a doctor and has never really treated patients. Ross wants Dr. Del Amico to treat more adults and fewer children. Elizabeth Corday, a visiting surgeon from the UK, joins the hospital staff. Written by garykmcd

Something New (#4.2)
27 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The episode introduces us to more characters which can become interesting. I did like George Henry, Carter's student who doesn't even care to be a student. He is a researcher and cares more about his experiment while this year is just a matter of obligation for him. This sure could be interesting.

I am actually sorry for Carter for many reasons. Including the fact that he won't get paid, actually I don't even understand how he is supposed to manage that.

The beginning with Dr, Morgernstern was pretty funny too, he is sure a good actor.
