"Hello everybody!"

While I am by no means a fan of John Leguizamo, he's not horrible thus far.

-"Wow man, those are cool shoes."
-"Get laid Morris."

(Oh, and the coma patient's mother was raped, shot, and the girl herself was pistol-whipped after trying to fight back? Damn...)

I know there were a lot of people saying John Leguizamo signaled the end of their watching er, but he's great so far...

Really? I thought John Leguizamo was highly annoying. I'm not going to stop watching though... Abby may throw coffee at me!

Abby had another great line in the beginning, something about being compassionate and almost becoming Dubenko's concubine.

John Leguizamo gave the ER a nice jolt, he got the show's energy and I had more fun with this episode than the previous ones this season.

I thought the coma girl was going to make a play for Kovach, too bad she went catatonic again.

Please tell me you don't like that song. I heard it and was thinking "Oh God no! Not here too!". The guy is an ex-militant from England and sings sleep-inducing Norah Jones/Katie Melua type of songs. The song is called You're Beautiful and was a huge hit in the UK, it was #1 for four or five weeks. His album has been out for ages over there but only began to sell when this, his third or fourth single had this huge acceptance. That's why Atlantic Records will be releasing him over here.

I like this type of music but this guy is dreary, if you like this stuff you should try to find stuff from Amy Winehouse who's like a dirty Norah Jones and Tyler James.

I liked the addition of Leguizamo. And I was happy to see that Kristen Johnson was absent this ep.

I like him so far, I like that he called out Morris.


What did he say to Weaver when she was telling him everything goes through her? Was it "Does my answer go through you?" If so I did not get what this meant, can anyone help?

I don't know if she's gone for good... she might rejoin the cast again 5 or 6 seasons from now.

In the 12 or so years this program has been on the air, I have NEVER seen an episode. Being a huge fan of John Leguizamo, I watched the other night. ER just gained a fan thanks to the addition of John.

He has this energy in his performances that demand attention. Or something.

It took it to mean that he thinks Weaver won't ever take what he has to say into consideration.
