Good Luck, Ruth Johnson - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: Carol is in Wilson's room writing on the center of his chart. When the shot shows her turn to answer Wilson, her pen is writing near the edge of the chart. She didn't have time to change the pen's position so quickly.

Continuity mistake: A policeman is in the ER talking about the little boy who was shot. He gives Carol a schoolbook with the boy's name in it. She looks at it and asks, "What about Wilson's family?" and then closes it - then as the cop answers, "Workin' on it", we see her closing it again.

Robert Romano: The operation was a screaming success if your desired outcome was paralysis.



As Mark futilely pounds on Jodi O'Brien's chest, Carol can be seen in the background, removing her protective glasses with one hand. However, after the time of death has been called and they're showing the reactions of everyone present in the room (Susan, Carol, Carter, Lydia, Chen), Carol is seen taking the glasses off again, this time with both hands.



Doug Ross frequently hung his head low, appearing ashamed or thoughtful or privately amused, depending on the scene. This wasn't just an element of the character: George Clooney had taken to writing his lines on papers, sheets, and other props.
