Susan cuts right through the bullshit and sighs irritatedly that Neela's never going to be a good ER doctor, and that she should go to research or internal medicine because they could make better use of her intellect. "When did intellect become a liability to working in the ER?" Carter asks, bemused. "There was a memo while you were in Africa," Weaver cracks. She needs to let it go. But, hee. Carter points out that Neela basically saved Frank's life -- although that had more to do with finding him first, I think; technically it was Pratt who did the most -- and that, with her excellent mind and carefulness, Neela will get faster with time. I can sort of buy this as a tangent to what we've seen of Neela's struggles -- that she doesn't necessarily trust a gut feeling, and when she does, it doesn't guarantee a textbook outcome. Witness her NICU freakout, which come to think of it would've been a way better previously-on clip to include. Stupid Chen says that Neela's passive. Carter thinks they should rank her to match, but Weaver points out that no one else agrees that she'll improve enough in four months. "The NRMP list doesn't have to be in right away," Weaver points out. "Carter, change our minds."
