Trivia

Debra Messing's character, Laura Diamond mentions Joe DiMaggio at the end of the episode as an answer in a crossword puzzle.

Goofs

A child in "diabetic coma" as depicted in this episode, would not have needed insulin, rather glucagon. Glucagon raises blood sugar, insulin lowers it. Besides, insulin doesn't act that fast. See more »

New Season, New Addition - Not Happy
7 November 2015 | by gjenevieveSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the show last season. I was actually looking forward to season 2. I was excited when I saw that they had renewed the show for a second season.

However, for some reason, they decided to add Callie Thorne. Not happy about that. I do not like the character she plays. I do not think that character was necessary. I am really hoping that they either severely limit her appearances on the show or get rid of her altogether.

That being said, if they are insistent on keeping her around, I am sincerely praying that the stories are amazing to help offset that character being included in the show.
