Trivia

Whenever Cuddy talks about her appointment with DYFS (Division of Youth and Family Services), she calls it D-Y-F-S, pronouncing each letter of the acronym. The administrator of a New Jersey hospital, or anyone else that deals with that state agency, would refer to it as "Dye-fiss," as if the letters spell an actual name. See more »

Cuddy's baby is very clearly a fake one. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Chris Taub: Sane people don't attempt suicide.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: Not ever? So if you were being burned at the stake, and someone gave you a gun?
Dr. Chris Taub: I'd shoot the guys with the torches.

not that out there
25 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Diagnosis in the end isn't weak and meaningless , and doesn't lack creativity b/c I personally had a family member with a diagnosis that was nearly exactly the same; after years of undiagnosed pain. I felt the families pain in seeing someone with the husbands tough guy background slowly withdraw and feel helpless in understanding what to do for him? Once diagnosed properly the family member was placed on medication to control the problem and it resolved the symptoms so they could live a life where the little things no longer were taken for granted once they could do them again without pain. It was an extraordinary thing to witness. To see that person smile again was for this family a miracle and blessing in one.
