If you got that reference, then move back into your parents’ basement, because you’re not ready for the real world.
Anyway, just got a healthy dose of mega-cliches from an episode of ER. Here’s what I learned:
- You can tell how the show is going to progress based on the star quality of the guest stars. For example: Hal Holbrook was on tonight, which means that Luca’s taking the job at the old persons’ home.
- If a patient says that the prognosis is good more than once, they are dead. Deader than disco.
- Love advice from the guy who seemingly knows nothing about love will work, always.
- County General in Chicago is like a fucking gun magnet. Apparently, next week, someone breaks in and forces the doctors to do his bidding. This will be the fortieth time they’ve used this particular story line.
You know what wouldn’t be cliche? Give the fucking doctors guns. Considering how often they’re getting mugged, shot at or pistol whipped, they should change the break room (you know, the one where they progress all the non-medical personal storylines?) into an arms locker.
