    S15.E22: Head Over High Heels

    I missed something. What did HAOG do that it was his fault his patient died? Hey, Richard, maybe don't get the woman with a shoe sticking out of her chest all upset and wait until after her surgery to try talking to her? Just a thought.

    And it didn't seem to occur to anyone that whoever ended up raising the kid, they could arrange to allow the other to still see him. I mean, they're not his biological grandparents, but nothing is stopping the guy from letting them see him as he grows up, if they wanted to work something out. And since he is the biological father he should at the very least be able to get visitation rights. (I also thought it odd that they referred to the father as a stranger. He said the surrogate was his best friend. Did she not have a relationship with her parents [if they mentioned an estrangement or something, I missed it]? Never mentioned her best friend for whom she's carrying a child?)

    Yeah, it's one thing to be attracted to bigger women. I get that, at least on an intellectual level (I am a straight female, so..). But wanting her to be so fat she literally can't do anything for herself (except maybe pick up the phone to order food)? What is the appeal?

    That was her youngest son, who was trying to talk her out of getting pizza. I think he answered the door and brought her the pizza.

    S07.E16 Lashanta's Story

    I'm usually about 4 pages behind. I read in one tab and comment in another, or if I want to respond to something I open the comment in a new tab and then reply to it. (Which is why I sometimes ask/answer questions that were already answered two pages earlier!) I wish I could temporarily change the default reaction to 'laugh'; it would save me half a second each time. Those half-seconds add up! 😛

    Yeah, I was thinking when he started to tell the parents they could have the baby, "you really should consult an actual lawyer before you do this." Why the hell is the psychiatrist involved in all this stuff, anyway?

    Heh...I was just listening to a podcast episode entitled "How scared should we be?" (the BBC's The Inquiry) and they quoted that line. (Then played a few clips of typical "scary" news reports from various local US news broadcasts.)

    Well, he also seems to think that his running everything in the hospital is more important than treating his cancer and maybe staying alive to be able to do his job in the future.
  9. Okay, there's a Wells Fargo mortgage ad I've seen a few times tonight that I have mixed feelings on. It's two dogs, alone at home during the day, a bigger dog snoozing on the couch, a little Pomeranian on the armchair. A siren starts blaring outside and the big dog lifts just his head while the little one starts freaking out, barking and running from the chair to the couch and back (she calls it the "woo-woo monster"). Then when the noise stops the big dog says something like "they're gone" and lays his head back down, and the little one stops running around and tries to calm down. She talks (yes, they talk, with CGI mouth movements) about how they need a quieter place to live. On the one hand, cute dogs. On the other hand, dogs freaking out at what is in their world clearly a regular occurrence makes me sad.

    Yeah, I didn't get that, either. They clearly said he was the genetic father, so why was there even a question? Do a paternity test, sure, but I don't see why he wouldn't get to keep the baby regardless of the relationship to the surrogate. (Though I knew as soon as he said he wouldn't fight for him so he wouldn't end up in foster care the parents would change their minds.) Who played the CF patient's mother? IMDB doesn't list the full cast (although googling found me an article about the actor who played the patient, who apparently actually has CF in real life). And I get wanting to give your kid some control/responsibility for her health condition as she gets older, but making a 12 year old fully responsible for her meds to the point that you don't even realize she stopped taking them seems like a bad idea.

    Just got to the part of the chat where she lost 3 pounds, and, well, someone had to...

    This phone call with her sons sounds very scripted.

    This Wells Fargo commercial with the dogs is making me sad. Poor pup; I just want to give her a hug.

    "getting closer than ever to being where I need" You're still sitting on your bed. Her youngest should start paying attention to what he eats. Did she say "apperntment"?

    Last summer I bought a slightly better version of the same make/model of car I've been driving since 2002 (this is my fourth) and I still test-drove it.

    You were "forced on a diet"? That was the whole point of going there! To get on the diet program! *tears out hair*

    She sounds like a five-year-old when talking to Dr. Now. "You'll see!"

    So, when the neighbor calls and says "do you need me to get anything from the store for you?" you can say "no." It's okay.

    Does the tattoo on her left arm say "Big One"?

    You missed Dr. Now's call because of your busy schedule?
