In the 90s, my parents – like the rest of the country – were really into watching ER. (My 9 year old self didn’t quite get the magic of the show – I mostly just remember the heartbreaking instances where my dad accidentally recorded it over my unwatched episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess.)
Still, I remember it being really popular.
Anyway, I was reading Everything Bad Is Good For You yesterday, and one chapter included part of the script.
Cue to KERRY bringing in a young girl. CARTER and LUCY run up. The girl’s parents are present.
KERRY: Sixteen-year-old, unconscious, history of villari treesure.
CARTER: Glucyna coma?
KERRY: Looks like it.
MR. MAKOMI: She was doing fine until 6 months ago.
CARTER: What medication is she on?
MRS. MAKOMI: Emphrasylim, tobramysim, vitamins A, D, and K.
LUCY: The skin’s jaundiced.
KERRY: Same with sclera, does her breath smell sweet?
CARTER: Peder permadicis?
LUCY: What’s that?
KERRY: Liver’s shut down, let’s dip her urine. Set lactulose, 30 ccs per mg
What the… wait, what?
