Ahhh, thanks. I wasn't sure if Jackson's reaction to Matthew was more professional or personal. The dynamic between the two men reminds me a lot of how a couple of potential suitors I had in college acted toward each other-somewhat jealous but not wanting to admit it. Jackson might have been bothered by the 'traching", but I wondered if his reaction would have been as strong had it been a different paramedic.

What I find interesting is that it was actually Alex that took Arizona's leg, not Callie. Callie was in charge and it was her decision to do it, but she didn't perform the actual surgery. I think it would be interesting to see what would happen if Arizona somehow found out about this.
I actually really liked this episode. It was great to see the flashbacks explaining all the things being said in the courtroom in an attempt to discredit Callie.
On another point, I also have an artificial hip as a result of an awful car wreck eight years ago. There was a new implant and method (I don't remember the name of it) I heard about that was supposed to make the recovery easier, but when I asked my doctor about it he said he did not and would not use that method because the implant was too new for him to trust and that all it was was a "shortcut" that he didn't think was any good. The implant has since been recalled. I'm no athlete, but that's what the episode reminded me of. A lot of shows make adaptations of real situations, so perhaps this is what they were doing here.

I have a mad crush on Matthew. Don't tell April. :)
Dumb question...wasn't Matthew's actions ("traching" the guy) something you'd expect a paramedic to do? I think Jackson's reaction probably had nothing to do with what Matthew did and everything to do with April.
As for the review...I'm the "ugly duckling" too. I had the *mother* of all awkward stages, but my husband tells me I turned out well. I have no idea, but I can totally relate to April!
I *loved* Matthew's proposal!!! A lot of girls dream about something like that.
And I was sooooo mad at Arizona, disappointed too. When Callie was saying, 'Where is Arizona?" I wanted to yell, 'she's cheating on you in the on-call room!" Some people wouldn't consider it cheating, but that's them. I suspect Callie won't be too happy when she finds out. And she will...
I agree that Artie and Sam's reactions were rude, but they are definitely common among boys and men in situations like this. I don't expect them to understand it the way a girl would (or a boy who had also been molested), but they could have at least noticed the effect the molestation had on Ryder. Maybe in a future episode their reactions will be revisited, like Brittany hearing about Sam's reaction and blasting him about it. I think Will, as the teacher, should have said more about it, if only in the 'cant you see this is hard for him?' way.
I too was expecting a Becky-Blaine-Sam scene because the local affiliate advertised the show that way. Did anyone else see commercials like this??? Seing Blaine in shorts was pleasant, though. :)
I agree, Brennan is rather arrogant and can't seem to imagine that her perfect little angel could be a normal kid. I know most parents don't want to think that their kid could misbehave, but the level she went to to 'prove' it was ridiculous. I wanted to throw something wet and squishy at her, esp when she basically told Finn he was 'below' her and implied similar about Parker (her somewhat-stepson!) when Booth mentioned biting. I pity Christine if she ever brings home a B or chooses a non-scientific career...although if might be an interesting 'loop' if she became a psychiatrist or a pastor/priest!
I like Finn...I'm from NC and the accent fits! Each Southern state has its own version(s) of the accent, and his is a good imitation of some of the inflections I hear back home.
Now I want to try that hot sauce!
This might sound odd but I was glad to see that Sam wasn't bothered by Blaine's crush on him. A lot of other teenage boys (and grown men!) would have been, but Sam's behavior shows a tolerance toward gays that we don't see in a whole lot of shows, esp those oriented toward teens.
I love Caroline too, and greatly enjoyed Vincent Nigel-Murray! If I worked there and weren't married, I'd have a *massive* crush on him!
I hope Brennan keeps seeing how cold she is.
