Goofs

Starting at about 1:25, when Skinner flat-lines, the blond nurse, standing next to the young doctor wearing glasses, sets her clipboard down and then squeezes something from a tube on to the defibrillator paddles. At about 40:30, when Skinner flat-lines, the same nurse cannot be seen repeating that step in the procedure. See more »
