Review Quotes


Neal's ex-girlfriend Grace shows up in the ER with a young girl she has brought back from Haiti. She's hoping that Angel's can perform a pro-bono surgery to remove a spinal tumor while the girl is in the states on a tourist visa. Campbell refuses, which leads to Neal applying to Harbert to take over Cole's position as trauma surgeon. Rosaline goes crashes soon after, and Neal takes her up to surgery, but has to call on Campbell when things get difficult. Campbell dismisses him, and makes it clear to Neal that the OR is his territory and that he is head of the pecking order. There is some tension between Neal and Grace throughout -- clearly, their breakup wasn't amicable and there are some unresolved issues there. Rosaline pulls through the surgery fine, and Grace tells her that she's looking into becoming her guardian and taking a job in Angel's ER.
