Goofs

Two individuals with diagnosed deadly food allergies are depicted, neither of whom carries an epinephrine pen. During the trial, Pete eats a piece of shrimp in order to make a point about allergic reactions. Nick injects him with epinephrine, which cures him. Anyone with a diagnosed deadly food allergy carries an emergency pen. And, any medical provider or allergic individual knows the emergency injection is only a temporary "fix". It provides time for the individual to get EMT care or to an emergency room. The allergen is still in the individual's system, and it must be neutralized. See more »

Watch Your Bottles ****
26 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was positively the best episode of this series. Keep this quality of episodes up, and the rumors of the show being canceled at the end of the season shall dissipate.

The episode deals with the tragedy that pursued when a pharmaceutical company gave the incorrect amount of medication for a dosage in its bottle.

Two people were affected by this error and one suffered brain damage, altering a very promising life.

The company, naturally, tries to get out of this by trying to blame the person for not properly reading the dosage bottle, but Nick comes up with an ingenious ploy to thwart their goals.
