Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: Though not remotely sexual that's got to be some form of harassment.
Liv Moore: Watch your fingers that scalpel is sharp.
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: I'd say Emily's brain effects are taking hold, specifically the fierce maternal instinct that kicks in just prior to giving birth.
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: I can call it a day, unless you have the urge to make me lunch or do my laundry.
Liv Moore: You wish. Have you, really, not eaten lunch ?

Sadly not strong, but marginally better than Virtual Reality Bites

While Maternity Liv is marginally better than Virtual Reality Bites, but it's not as strong as the first five episodes, which were great after a solid debut. It did feel a bit abrupt, especially towards the end, (which was the only problem I had with the pilot episode, but at least it was still a strong start) and some parts of the writing lacked something that made the first four episodes very interesting. That being said, the rest of the episode is good. The blending of the comedy, crime, and drama is still handled well (especially the drama, which was an improvement over Virtual Reality Bites and Liv and Let Clive), the pacing didn't drag, the directing/editing is still solid, the music score continues to shine, and the performances continue to be spot on as they continue to being complexity and charm to the protagonists and the villain played by David Anders (who played Dr. Whale/Victor Frankenstein) in the 1,2,3,5, and 6 seasons of Once Upon A Time. Overall, not as strong sadly, but another good episode and marginally better than Virtual Reality Bites.
