Quotes

Dr. Christian Troy: [to Gina] You want the wisdom to know the difference between what you can and can't change? Here's step 13: everything disappears. Love, trees, rocks, steel, plastic, human beings. None of us get out alive. Now you can huddle in a group and face it one day at a time, or you can be grateful that when your body rubs against somebody else's it explodes with enough pleasure to make you forget even for a minute that you're a walking pile of ashes. Now that is the truth. If you're strong it'll make ...

Fitting Episode :-)
20 August 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Lol catz! This episode cracked me up. There was a guy who wanted an operation on his eyes so he could look Asian for his girlfriend's parents. That psychiatrist (Dr. Santiago) walked in on Christian banging some random woman. She basically told Christian she thinks he has too MUCH sex. Julia figured out that she was pregnant (that came out of nowhere, but I liked it.) Gina (a major character in later seasons) was introduced. I loved Christian's speech about everyone being little more than a pile of walking ash. Some of the best writing of the series. John Hensley continues to shine as Matt McNamara, even though he appears very little in this episode. And... majorly sad stuff happened (don't want to spoil the episode completely.) It was a fitting episode for the series, not bad, but not amazing.
