Jane Figler: Mothers often eat their own young in the wild and we just think it's part of nature, right? But when women kill their children, it's a crime, and we think they're crazy.
Abby Lockhart: What?
Jane Figler: Well, I mean, it just makes you wonder, right? Are the lions crazy too? Or are women like Susan Smith and Andrea Yates just acting upon some primitive impulse that's deep within our genetic maternal make-up?
Luka Kovac: Am I interrupting something?
Jane Figler: Just some girl talk.

E.R. still has the power to shock and move
29 May 2006 | by djarmhpSee all my reviews

At the beginning of series 12 I thought that maybe the old warhorse had finally had its day. Then along comes an episode like this to remind long term viewers why they stay with the programme. From the shocking start to the emotional ending this had everything. Pratt returned from his stint in Africa a different man from the immature one that had left a few weeks earlier. His first case involving the victims of an apparent burglary gone wrong had a conclusion that no one could see coming. Clemente's problems finally took their toll on him, but not before he had proved once more what a brilliant instinctive doctor he was even with his mental health in jeopardy. There were some surprisingly vitriolic comments about the war in Iraq, a sure sign that even mainstream America is starting to have its doubts. Many series come and go, but after a sticky patch E.R. is definitely back on form.
