Nurses Vs. Doctors
17 July 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

The title of this episode mentions that there's some sort of trouble in this episode, which is nothing new. The problem, or dilemma, is Dr. Bracket. But Dr. Bracket seems to think the nurse intern is the problem. She always seems to be making mistakes around ER doc, but Dixie understands the situation and knows how to fix it.

Another "dilemma" of sorts is happening at the fire station. Johnny Gage seems to have a woman after him (usually, he seems to be the one 'after' women), and he doesn't like it. He tries to get one of the other men to ask him out, and succeeds; or does he?

Meanwhile, the medical professionals do a little bit of work. They rescue a group of people from an elevator, help a man who has his own personal junk yard in his backyard, and rescues two men involved in an industrial accident. Though the most heart-warming scene is the beginning, the most humorous is the junk yard...
