Quotes

Dr. Robert Romano: Just finishing up my disciplinary report, recommending that your residency be terminated for operating without an attending.
Dr. Peter Benton: Hmm, if you turn that in I'll be forced to defend myself.
Dr. Robert Romano: Hmm, well good luck Peter.
Dr. Peter Benton: That'll mean I'll have to turn in these labs showing that your blood alcohol level was .12. You shouldn't have even been driving, let alone operating on someone.

The Miracle Worker (#5.10)
21 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Christmas time and once again all the miracles are happening. The story about a boy who got brain hemorrhage and the girl who had the same rare type as him and would survive due to liver transplant was a very good one. Poor mother (very well performed by Laurie O'Brien) of that guy, but I liked how Lucy handled the situation as well as saying that Carter should not give too much credit to god for it and him joking that she is his tool.

The episode also had some funny moments. There is of course the grumpy elf but also the big guy who ended up blending the whole Christmas meal thinking that its is more healthy because it is blended.
