Can't they put more recent footage of Benton in the credits? That clip of Eriq LaSalle punching the air comes from the series premiere.
Lucy "O Holy" Knight and Chuny look into a snowglobe given to Lucy by a patient; then Kerry "Lo, How A Micromanaging Control Freak E'er Blooming" Weaver hails Lucy with a "good case." Hey, Lucy? Jennifer Aniston called, and she'd like her hairstyle back. Also, put your goddamn hair UP! You do not man a booth at Miss-Clairol-apalooza for a living -- you work IN A HOSPITAL! Sterile environment! Hello! Anyway, Kerry gives Lucy the bullet: the patient, a young woman, suffers from cardiomyopathy and has had a recent progression of symptoms; also, her cardiologist changed her medications two days ago. As the woman gets hoisted onto the table, Lily says she's throwing PVCs, and the woman herself gasps, "I'm on the -- heart transplant list." Kerry asks Lucy what they should do, and Lucy guesses "treat with lidocaine," and Kerry agrees, but then Chuny yells out, "She's in v-tach," and Lucy calls for the paddles, but Kerry corrects her and says they should take the vitals again and start the lidocaine drip, adding, "It's not a good idea to shock a patient who's wide awake." Well, not unless it's one of the ER writers, because three minutes into the episode I can already see they could use the voltage. The patient's heart settles down, and she wheezes, "I wasn't planning on this for Christmas," and Lucy says gently that they'll alter her medications and try to get her home in time to open presents. Kerry herds Lucy out of the room while giving lab orders to the nurses, and once they get into the hallway, Kerry gives Lucy the what-for, saying that Lucy doesn't know enough about the case to make promises of that nature to the patient. A confused Lucy argues, "Her medications were off, right?" Kerry says that the patient "will be lucky to make it through the night." Lucy, crestfallen, says she "didn't realize," and Kerry says that, as a fourth-year, Lucy has acquired a lot of medical knowledge, and now she has to learn how to apply it. She orders Lucy to go back in, get a thorough history, "and find out what you can do for your patient."
