An Intern's Guide to the Galaxy - S11-E5

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Dubenko is explaining a chemical reaction to the other doctors he starts to write on the wall. In the first shot he writes the following: 2H+ + H then the camera focuses on his audience and we hear continuing writing, then the camera cuts back to Dubenko when on the wall the following is written: 2H+ -> A. (00:24:00)

Time of Death - S11-E6

Audio problem: When the team is moving Mr. Metcalf to a different room, Luca says, "Let's go people. Prime the rapid infuser." Abby says, "subclavian on the right." The shot shows the a close up of the patient's face (Mr. Metcalf). Immediately, that 4-second shot with audio repeats itself, before moving on to the next. (00:12:40)


Try Carter - S11-E3

Revealing mistake: Ray Barnett is shopping down the cereal aisle and a package of brats is thrown into his hand when you can see there is nothing on the shelves other than cereal. (00:39:01)

The Show Must Go On - S11-E22

Revealing mistake: Neela is delivering a baby. As the camera moves around a nurse to show a close up of Neela and the baby, you see her holding the "head" about a foot away from the mom and quickly moves it closer to look like it's coming out of the woman.

Robert Romano: They're going to be looking for a sacrificial lamb, and I have to tell you, right now you're looking pretty wooly.

Answer: A man named Paul Sobriki comes into the ER in the season 6 episode 13 " All in the Family." He is complaining of headaches, Carter and Lucy decide to rule out meningitis and do a lumber puncture. Paul struggles during the procedure and believes that both doctors are stabbing him. Lucy, who is interested in Psych thinks something is wrong with their patient mentally, but Carter is dismissive of her. She gets cross with his attitude and she calls the psych department anyway to have a look at him. Later on and near the closing 20 minutes or so of the episode, all the staff start playing loud music and get a cake which appears to be blue lol, together to party as it's Valentines Day, Carter returns from somewhere and asks where Lucy is. He goes to check one of the rooms for her and Paul Sobriki comes up behind him in the dark and stabs him twice in the lower back, he collapses and as he falls unconscious he sees Lucy on the ground also. In the next episode, Be Still My Heart (ep 14), Dr Weaver discovers them and all of the staff work to try and save them, whilst Carter survives. Lucy's wounds are fatal and suffers a pulmonary embolism as Corday and Romano try to save her. Carter is grief stricken and feels guilty about the way he treated her, he becomes addicted to painkillers and Benton, Greene all help him and book him into rehab.

Answer: Lucy and Carter were stabbed by a patient she had suspected of having mental problems. Lucy died and Carter survived only to become addicted to painkillers.
